East High Principal Struggles with Complicated Situations as Summer Vacation Approaches

Filed under Uncategorized

East High School Principal, Laura Vibelius struggles with complicated situations during the last weeks of school. One incident, having false alarm going off three times. Another circumstance, ten upperclassmen were suspended for one week. The ten students were protesting the suspension of 5 other students – which were also suspended for a week, due to being caught smoking prohibited substances in the campus parking lot.

Vibelius had the cafeteria closed after a food fight outbreak. She comments, “Not so much unrest because of suspensions, but because of summer vacation being so near”. As the leader of the school, she is hoping for the best.

All this places Vibelius in a very difficult situation, having to make the right decisions on what to act on forward. As the principle of the institution, she believes there will be no continuations of these “incidents” in the near future.

Let’s meet Morgan

Filed under Uncategorized

I have interviewed Morgan Whitehead this morning and learned some interesting facts. She is a junior with an Advertising major. Morgan is from LeMars, IA. She was previously a volleyball player and involved with Student Government. Now, after taking time on reflecting, She stepped down from the team to focus on herself. She is currently a Coach at Dakotah Valley. Whitehead has two brothers and one sister at home. For her interests, she enjoys musicals, preferably pop or country themed and she also enjoys watching movies.

This has been Jose and some points on Morgan.

Spring Break 2015

Filed under Uncategorized

For Spring Break, I did not plan on traveling anywhere, so I stayed on campus. My goals where to watch all the (8) Harry Potter and (5) Twilight Saga movies, cook food, and make drinks with my Magic Bullet blender.

The most fun was having accomplished everything on my list of Spring Break goals. I managed to cook Chicken with Vegetables and Rice, and also blended strawberries, blueberries, ice cream, milk and whipped cream into a great tasting fruit smoothie drink.

If I could travel to the nearest past, I would have advised myself to work on extra credit assignments and future assignments for the classes.

To have an entertaining college spring break, I suggest to either have plans set for things to do, or just go with what happens – explore the possibilities.

What I found most challenging for this transition was deciding what to incorporate into my speech from my essay. It showed me other ways of interpreting what I was trying to reach out to my audience including visual effects.

After reviewing the video, I have always said that I hate the sound of my voice, but that is a statement that mostly everyone says. I noticed that I did not cover every detail that I had originally intended most likely because of nerves. I also had planned to display two videos but I was not able to during my presentation.

I meant to cover more out of what was presented but did not succeed in that, but I plan on improving from what I learned this time.

I believe the most successful speech would go to Christina because she was well prepared and very out-spoken. She caught her audience’s attention, and she was not afraid.

Part 1:

I write in my dorm, in a quiet area, along with music, having food and a drink on my side, and sometimes either alone with no sounds or with friends to keep me company. I am most productive (in the day time) when I am feeling comfortable in the place where I am. I need music, sometimes snacks, company, and positivity around me. Music and snacks give me energy when I am writing. I like to write outlines and prewrites and having them ready by a friend or a tutor before getting them turned in. For writing, in First-year seminar I learned that students need to set their priorities and plan their weekdays in advanced — this will help organize and improve their studying skills. In C&C I hope to learn some history about Popular Culture, new skills in analyzing papers/articles, better ideas for writing.

Part 2:

I believe the text will be about comparing McDonald’s and Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s. What should come next should be some background information on both sides. The next paragraph shows interesting facts about McDonald’s that many people do not know about. McDonald’s advertising strategies incorporate children with their families and also include animals. Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s uses models in all its commercials. Describes background on the fast food chain such as where it originated. Compares both with their open hours and the way they advertise.

#4 on p. 70 (include a link to the online ad you discuss)

This advertisement is misleading because it is supposed to be promoting a car, but instead it is focusing on the model on front of it.

RPC – Page 119 #4

Good advertisements:

Domino’s offers good advertisement to the consumers because it tells the truth and the prices that it promotes are economical and that way people can afford the pizza. 

Bad advertisements:

Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. illustrates bad advertisement to the consumers because it always displays a model eating a burger and it is done in a seductive way.

Killing Us Softly 4 Critique and Impromptu Speech Reflection

Filed under Uncategorized

Killing Us Softly 4 Critique:                                                                                                                           In the speech, Killing Us Softly 4, Jean Kilboume says, “40 years have gone by and things seem to have gotten worst.” Something that caught my attention was that 3,000 ads are exposed to an average person in a year. She state that ads sell more that products. What was shocking was that through photoshop, women are combined from 4 into 1 in the magazines. With this, the creators believe that this shows how we are and how we should be. Women’s bodies are objectified into many things all the time, such as products. She shares how women of color wear animal styled cloths. Children are now starting to become affected by this. She includes the ideas of Feminism and Masculin both types of ads.

Impromptu Speech Reflection:                                                                                                                                     Overall, this impromptu speech on accepting an award seems like it turned out really well for everyone. The one exception is that some of us had a few mistakes such as looking only at their notes and not the rest of the audience. I like how we got to share a little about ourselves and not worry too much.
