“Desempleados en Philly Luchan en Washington D.C.”


Es muy difícil para vivir como un desempleado, en Filadelfia, en Pennsylvania, y en los Estados Unidos. En diciembre, se convertido en aún más difícil cuando cheques de desempleado se terminó veniendo para ayudar los desempleados. Los cheques se daba los personas que lo necesitaban dinero para comprar comido y necesidades que no podrían recibir sin los. ¿Pero por qué terminó los cheques llegando? El gobierno federal se decidió para cortar ellos en diciembre, efecto inmediato. Millones de personas estaban afectadas, y perdieron sus fuente de ingresos mientras no tienen trabajo. Es injusto, y no soy el solo persona quien piensa que.

En Filadelfia solamente, casi once mil personas perdieron sus cheques y dinero, y en Pennsylvania, ¡casi mil ochento los perdieron! Pero ya no lo tolerarán. Dirigido por el activista John Dodds, muchas personas fueron a Washington D.C. para protestar y luchar estas cortas de dinero que son necesidad de tan muchas. Ellos quieren congreso de revocar las cortas, o en otra lugar aún más personas va a estar afectado, y no en una manera bueno. No solo lo duelan las personas, peso lo duela el econmica y negocios, como menos personas va a gastar dinero, por que ¡no tienen dinero! ¡Es ridiculoso!

Artículo respuesta #5

Betty Louis Q2

Senorita Manuel

¿Quién era Mónica Spear?

Este artículo es sobre un mujer nombre Mónica Spear quien en dos mil cuatro en el edad de nueve-diez se coronó Miss Venezuela. El artículo habla sobre la vida de Mónica Spear. En el artículo ella suena inocente. Ella se fue a la universidad, tiene un título universitario, y se casó con su marido. Su carrera artística comenzó en dos mil seis y entonces después de ella comenzó a actuar en películas (en Venezuela). Ella estaba en el cine Mi prima ciela (en dos mil siete), Calle Luna, calle sol (en dos mil nueve), La mujer perfecta (en dos mil diez) y Que el cielo me explique (en dos mil once). Pero este año Spear y su esposo fue asesinados en la autopista Puerto Cabello.¿Por que? El artículo no dice por que este ocurrió. La autoridad todavia estan tratando encontrar este afuera. Que es por que el nombre de articulo es “¿Quién era Mónica Spear?” No tiene sentido que un bonita mujer con una reputación limpia seria entrar dos mil catorce asesinados. Ella pasó su vida construyendo su carrera y ahora se ha ido. También el artículo dice que Monica Spears y su esposa tuvo una hija nombre Maya Berry Spear. Me pregunto qué pasó a ella. ¿Esta ella bien? Yo espero el articulo dije más sobre Monica Spears. Ahora que yo sé sobre su muerte, ella es interesante. Ella era muy bonita y famosa mujeres muchos probablemente estaba celoso. Pero quien fue celoso suficiente para matarla ella. Yo espero que su familia está bien.

My New Media Fluency Slide

Untitled presentation
This is my new and improved slide based on criticism. I didn't present my last slide, but I went around and asked for opinions and decided to make an entire new one. My last slide I do regret, it was very messy. On my new slide, I learned from other presentation critiques to use a high quality picture for the background. I also put a quote in white color to make it stand out more. This slide is definitly a major improvement from my last.

Artículo 5: 2014 - Un Gran Año para Los Homosexuales (y otros)

2014: Un Gran Año para Los Homosexuales (y otros)


Recientemente officiales del gobierno en pennsylvania prometió igualdad como objectivo para este año. Para todos los miembros LGBTQ y a todos quienes los apoyan esta es una muy buena noticia. La igualdad es obviamente carece en este país. Ya sea derechos de las mujeres, discriminación racial, o derechos de los homosexuales. ¡También son personas! Tanto como tú o yo, no es diferente en esencia de la otra. Sin embargo, y tristemente así, muchos no se sienten de esta manera. Muchos no pueden ver más allá de la luz cegadora del miedo. Un miedo de la diferencia. 

“¡Es un pecado!” “¡Está mal!” “¡Son monstruos de la naturaleza!” y así sucesivamente. Lo escucho todos los días y no puedo creer mis oídos. Esto es una atrocidad. No es diferente que el racismo; sólo flagrante discriminación. Moralidad humana parece haber tomado una rute parabólica del bien y mal, una vertiente aumentando y disminuyendo luego y así sucesivamente. Sin embargo fácilmente podría argumentó que como una sociedad moral estamos en constante disminución. Los niños se les enseña a odiar a millones, crecen en un mundo de ira y la discriminación: la creación de una sociedad cargada de odio parásitos. 

Pero basta de todo esa negatividad. Este nuevo acuerdo de gobierno es una buena cosa. ¡Una gran cosa! Es esperanza para la raza humana, nos lleva un paso más cerca a igualdad glorioso.

Colin Pierce: The Slide

Media Fluency 2 -- Colin
This is my slide. I had the images of things that interest me bleed off the bottom of the slide because, as said on Presentation Zen, they make the presentation look more engaging. To avoid making the slide feel like a long novel, I only included my first and last name at the top, and I left a small blank space on each side of the slide because it helped draw the focus to areas where there was content. Also, to make sure that the slide didn’t become too lifeless, I added an angry bear in front of an explosion to draw attention. At first there was just a picture of me, but I thought that it looked too cliche and uninteresting.
Media Fluency Improved
After presenting in front of the class, I got a lot of suggestions for how I could improve my slide. First of all, Ms. Hull told me that I should make my slide into halves, with one side having the bear and the other having my name and interests. She also recommended that I change the sizes of some of the images to create better contrast, such as increasing the sizes of the baseball and bear, and decreasing the font size of my name. When listening to classroom discussions, I also learned to never have blurry or pixelated pictures in our presentations, and to always have some sort of organization to avoid a confusing slide. Ms. Hull meant to set us up for failure with this project by making it so open-ended, so that we could learn from our mistakes and revisit it later. Now, if we’re in another class making a power point, we can look back on this and know exactly what not to do.

Tech Slide Presentation


  When making my project, I first used my online sources. I initially went to the “Design Slide Website” link. One of the first things I read basically said Color is the first thing that is seen. My original slide consisted of a black and grey New York themed background. I completely changed everything and went for more appealing colors. I used a bold red  font to make the words eye catching then put a thin black shadow behind the text.. I next went Presentation Zen and utilized their sources as well. I used the rule of empty/blank space isn't always a bad thing. The background that I used had a black&white color scheme. Therefor in my opinion, it gave somewhat of an empty space/spacious setting on its own. With that being said, I wanted the text to stand out like the two website links that were provided said. To make the pictures my own, I edited them using two apps on my phone and iPad. The first app; Color Splurge,  allowed me to enhance the black&white color background. While the other app; A+ Signature allowed me to watermark my picture by writing my text. Finally I used tips that I read offline which included; bold text makes the work more appealing, make sure the text stands out, have a statement in your presentation, and etc.

Tech Slide (New & Improved)


   After receiving a few pointers and constructive criticism from a few of my classmates, I made minor yet significant changes to my slide. It was suggested to me that I possibly change the alignment of my writing. I put that in mind and followed through with it. I also was told that I should consider using a font instead of my personal writing. I was hesitant at first because I thought that my handwriting made the quote look really personalized. But I am happy to say that I am pleased with the change. Finally, changed both of those things by continuing on the app that I previously used to edit; A+ Signature.
My new and improved slide is now more legible, and organized

Well I never went for the first time because I never was called too but I heard lots of criticism for other slides. I noticed many of my slide was too much happening and not simple. I tried to make it simple with the point. So i made the font something I felt was smooth with the white with the sky background. Then I made a quote I thought is applicable to anyone's life because anything is possible with will and determination. I noticed I completely changed the slide and everything from original slide on the Colts to a man on a mountain living his dreams. I this time decided to keep all my colors colder colors to not make to many warm and cold colors in my slide. In my quote I tried to make as clear as possible so I kept it to 5 words. I learned a lot about preciseness, alignment, color  codes in warmth and cold. The assignment will help a lot through presenting power points in classes in future.

This is my slide. I wanted to make something I cared about so I did it on the Indianapolis Colts. I wanted to make the Colts come off as an elite team so I took good layers like T.Y. Hilton, Greg Toler, Vontae Davis and more. I made them each the same size and used consistent symetry throughout entire slide. I then decided to make it more interesting by adding a quote by coach Vince Lombardi which this quote is a team's motto before each game.

Media Fluency-new slide

     This is how my new slide looks after the changes I have made. Before, my slide did not look as good as I could have been. I did not have many problems other than a very low-resolution images and a few other things. I feel my main problem with it was not using every element of design I had at my disposal. So started with the spacing of everything to utilize the rule of thirds more. I put the quote at the top-left and the picture at the bottom-right. The reason that the quote is a bit distant from the person who said it is because I did not want it to feel very claustrophobic in that corner. The image was very low-res so replaced with this one and put it in the corner. I also did not make it as big as the other to keep it from looking that way. What I learned about this kind of design was the amount of depth that it has. There are many different elements to it. Some help some elements and others counteract them. It is a more trial and error type of process.

The first thing I did was look over the Presentation Zen website.  The information on there really helped me decide where I was going to place my picture and the words I used for my slide.  I learned things like how you can have your picture bleed off the page and that you have to use colors in the same family.  The picture I used had a lot of colors from the cooler color palette, like different shades of blue and grey.  That’s why I made my words a blue color.  I also made the shells on the right bleed off the page for effect.   Since the shells were on the right side of the page I decided to put the words on the left so that the right side isn't too heavy and the whole slide is balanced.  I used very few words so it’s easy and quick to read(glance media).  Above the shells I left the space empty because on presentation zen it says that when you fill all of the space it’s distracting.

I found that it was really helpful to get my slide critiqued by the class.  I got a lot of good comments and I feel like the changes I made really helped make my slide better.  The first comment I got was that my words should be much bigger. I increased the writing and it was easier to read than before.  Ms.Hull also showed me how to layer the writing so I decide to include that.  I made the main words a light yellow color and the shadow of the letters a dark blue that was originally the main color.  Also the image I used wasn't edited so I used PicMonkey, and editing site to make my image slightly darker and make the shadows more intense.
