Propaganda.

posted Oct 14, 2011, 6:56 AM by Nolan Frasco

I really enjoyed the gallery, showing off the different kinds of propaganda and how you could see the change form German to american opposing the Nazi remnants. The timeline and theme pages were also very interesting, I liked the segment about Hitlers rise to leader status. Although I already knew alot about the word itself, I learned much more about it's origin, and how it was used in the early years after its creation.

and If we are going to talk about this in class, I would like to ask this: how many people KNOW about Occupy Wallstreet. and then out of those people how many know whats it's ABOUT. there really isn't any propaganda about it. but the fact that there is "reverse-propaganda" where as the fact that it is being hidden form the general public is disturbing. I have been following it for sometime and It is a serious issue that I personally believe would fit in to this topic quite well.

1) Yes. I relay so heavily on technology that life without it would be horrible.
2) Yes. technology has always advanced. and it always will. It is that within the last 20 years we have come so far so fast that it does not appear that it will slow down any time soon.
3)No. technology is a good thing. you should never hinder progress, just be wary of its total consumption. 
    yes. humans will always adapt. we will overcome anything that is put in front of us.

9/11 video

while watching this video, a bunch of different emotions came to me. from the sickness I felt from watching the people jump from the burning tower, to the fear from watching the plane fly in to the second tower. reliving all of this again brings back memories from first grade, being shown footage of all of this going on from the new copter, and all of the teachers being scared and not understanding why. 

dangers of blogging.

posted Aug 30, 2011, 7:00 PM by Nolan Frasco

some basic problems or dangers of blogging are the chances that you may find yourself giving out too much personal information, or say something that comes back to bite you. whether this are legitimate depends on the site more than anything, if you are on 4chan, you may be in trouble. But if your on, say, reddit, your probably okay. some other dangers could be that you bad mouth some one and it gets back to them, or some one just starts to down right troll you. Or even, you could just end up making yourself look like a fool. So if your going to blog, my main rules are: Be polite, Be efficient(use correct spelling AND GRAMMAR), and keep in mind that there are other PEOPLE just like you on the other end.

Mass media.
I would have liked to read this packet a little more then I did. I found it very interesting and and enjoyed the artical about the current culture we are living in. From what I read, I do find myself agreeing with most of the magor points they put up. One such topic was the way our socitcy relays its' "cultural values and ideals through the news and commericals". The topic of the "culture of a skyscraper" was a different perspective for me and I greatly enjoyed reading about that, with the reasoning of; it is a new way to look at modarn culture that I never thought about before hand, and as such, I now have a new, enlightened outlook on the current state of our media driven culture.
