Honors-Palin, Clinton Sexism

April 19, 2012 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

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 […]

Internet’s effect on social interactions

March 22, 2012 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

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.  […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Honors–Immigration Discussion

Filed under Uncategorized

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 […]

The videos we watched were about Chaz Bono, formerly known as Chastity Bono.  Chaz is the son of Sonny and Cher.  He was born a girl, but has undergone sex changes in order to become a man.  When he was a woman, he was a lesbian, and he never felt right being a woman.  He […]
