Honors-Palin, Clinton Sexism

After reading the article about how sexism was very alive in the 2008 election, I can’t help but agree.  The media seems to be the source of a lot of the problem.  While general sexist stereotypes do exist, the media enhances them and makes them worse.  Our country has come a long way from the sexist roles in the past, but there are still some. ... [Read more of this review]


Internet’s effect on social interactions

The two articles we read were very interesting.  I have always leaned more towards the view point of the second, but I didn’t feel like it provided much clear evidence that the internet is taking away from our physical social interactions.  For that matter, I didn’t think either article provided solid evidence for their points.  I do... [Read more of this review]


Randomness in Life

Chapter one of this book explores the random factors in life.  It discusses how their are skills and things that affect outcomes, but many times we cannot be sure because of the random factors.  It gives examples like how the Hollywood box office success fluctuates so much and how baseball players numbers happen at random at times.  The author says... [Read more of this review]


Honors-Obama Higher Education

After reading Joy Resmovits’ blog, I see the intention of the “race to the top” competition, but I do not think this is a good idea.  I see that Obama wants to keep college affordable and provide grants to kids that need them, but this is not the right way to do that.  Once again, in this plan it looks like the government wants to... [Read more of this review]


Music and Effects on Politics and Society

The first article we read is about music and its effects on society throughout history.  It describes how music is passed generation to generation as well as culture to culture.  Music keeps evolving and spreading.  Society takes a hold of music and relies on it for their social expression.  Many times arguments and fights occur because of music. ... [Read more of this review]


Honors- Wright Thompson

Best Pizza in the South In this article, Wright Thompson describes his favorite pizza place.  He describes a little dive in Baton Rouge that started out making small pizzas as an appetizer to soak up beer.  They soon became very popular, so the place increased the size and sold them with different varieties.  Wright talks about how much he loves... [Read more of this review]


Honors-Gilligan

Answer to first question:  I know that Heinz broke the law when he went in to the store and stole from the man, but I don’t think it mattered.  The basic human instinct is survival.  The only way for his wife to survive was to steal the drug because he couldn’t get anymore money, and the store owner wouldn’t sell it for cheaper. ... [Read more of this review]


Passport Makeup-U.S. Victory in Iraq

Once again, this is a also a very biased article.  It is just one more article that bashes the other party.  I am a conservative person, but I lean towards the middle more than most.  I tend to agree with republicans more, but I get so sick of the strong conservatives that are so arrogant.  This article must have been written by one of them.  I... [Read more of this review]


Passport Makeup-Boy Taken From Mother

Obviously this article is a little biased.  I don’t agree that the boy should have been taken, but I feel like Ruben Navarrette Jr. couldn’t form a solid strong argument because it was so biased.  He claimed once that social service agencies have been doing heavy-handed abuse for 20 years, but he didn’t give any examples.  I couldn’t... [Read more of this review]


Honors–Immigration Discussion

This last discussion was very interesting.  I think it was awesome to finally see people get into it with their beliefs.  The strongest point I heard that I agree with has to do with the desperation of the immigrants.  We discussed that they have no other choice than to come over because they will die where they are.  It takes too much time to get... [Read more of this review]
