“There have been multiple media reports about Donald's business dealings with the mob, with the mafia," Cruz said. There has been claims that Donald Trump has been associated with the mob and the mafia and those claims are true. However, there is no concrete evidence that has Trump actually dealing with mob or the mafia. The only thing connecting Trump and the mob together is the mention of Trump Tower from one of the big mob bosses and also that Trump will not release his tax information. Trump says he does not want to release his tax information because it will reveal his real net worth and he does not want anybody to find out about that. Also, Donald Trump is making “mob-style” threats to another republican name John McCain by saying, “[McCain] has to be very careful…..He’ll find out,”(Wolf). That statement from Donald Trump also gives some red flags on who he is actually dealing with business wise and his political life.Fact-checking is very important when doing a research paper for school or even for a job because people cannot believe everything on the internet is true. Students do not go past the first page on Google when they are doing a research paper because they think after the first page on Google is not true. When a student finds a statement about an iconic figure or even a political figure, the student needs to double check that statement to make sure it is credible.
Fidel Castro overthrew General Batista in January of 1959 after gathering a new group of rebels in Mexico, and pushing across the island of Cuba in a series of victories. The group group’s guerrilla war tactics were new to Batista’s army, and the tactics eventually led Castro and his revolutionists to victory. The only reason that Castro’s rebellions were so powerful was because he had people who believed in him and his ideas for Cuba, and they wanted to make a change for Cuba. The people of Cuba were angry that Fulgencio Batista overthrew the president and suspended all elections after realizing that his campaign was failing. Castro easily gained supporters at the thought of someone new in Cuba’s office. Castro’s “History Will Absolve Me” speech gained him most of his revolutionary support at home.

O'Brien: Victim or Villain?
I believe that O'Brien is villain because he is the one that is torturing Winston. O’Brien has the choice to stop torturing Winston but he continues to torture him even though he can see Winston in so much pain, “He felt very cold, he was shaking uncontrollably, his teeth were chattering, the tears were rolling down his cheeks,”(Orwell 250). O’Brien can obviously see that Winston is in pain and he does nothing to stop it. I personally believe that O’Brien’s morals would have taken over and realize that that is enough but he didn’t, he kept going. People have the choice to stop even though if a authority figure tells them to keep going. The authority figure does not control someone else, a person has control over themselves and that is it. People should try to stay human than stay alive, nobody should be broken that they go against their morals.
I enjoyed the Media Literacy course this semester. At the beginning I did not really think I would like it because I do not using eclass but I actually enjoyed it. My views on social media remained the same throughout this semester. However learning more and more about how social media influences and controls people’s lives, social media is harming people. During this semester I got my phone taken away for a week and during that week I went “mad”. I never realized until that week that my phone controlled me that much and it was sickening.I remember earlier this semester, we had a twenty-four no social media and three-fourths of the class failed, thats just sad. People need to focus more on person to person communication rather than person to cell phone communication. I learned that media in general is a powerful resource we have. I knew media was powerful but not this powerful as it is now. In the movie V for Vendetta, V got his idea to the people through media. V’s idea reached everybody just like how our media reaches everybody. In my other language arts classes I took we did not use the computers at all but this class we used them almost everyday. I think it is good that we got use the computers more because the world is shifting to a more technological world and we as students need to learn the “new” way. The traditional way is becoming more obsolete and the new technology way is advancing more and more. I would not really change anything about the class because it was set at a good pace. I really liked the dystopian unit so maybe add more stuff to the unit. Also, I would change the amount of precis we do to one. I did not like writing precis, they were so boring and difficult to write sometimes.
Prince of Ea
Technology was supposed to be used in helping humans grow into a more advanced species instead of stunting what we should be doing. The only thing we can do to stop this problem from going any further is to “go off the grid”. People need to go back in the old days where we did not have cell phones to keep us occupied but where are friends were there with us in person, not in our phones. Also, call a friend to come over and just to hang out and once they come over leave your phone in your room and go somewhere. In general, just stay away from your cell phone. People can control everything from real drug addictions to technology accidictions. All we have to do is just put away all of our technological devices and go do something. It takes twenty-one days to break a habit and yes I know nobody is going to go that long without their phones but you can still call people and that is it. We all have the power to control or even do something, but it is up to the individual to make a difference. I am only going to use social media and technology when it is truly necessary. Our world is becoming a more technology based world but people can still control how they use technology. I think it is good that teachers are teaching us about technology but they should also teach us how to control technology and use it for good not just using it for social media. Overall, technology is a good resource only if we use it the right way. People have technology addictions but it is up to the person to handle their problem. Technology is advancing everyday and it is up to the new generation to enhance the technology is a new way to help the world without getting “addicted” to technology.
