I believe that media literacy is based on the power media of any means have in this century. Media literacy may even by the way they transform information and the way the words are use. Things like social media, YouTube, news are different forms of media literacy. I think a major factor in media literacy may come in forms of videos or audio. We may use media literacy to study and analyze different way we express ourselves in form of videos, social media, and even music is are some of the big ways we can interact with this way of literature. As technology grow and improves so is media literacy since it can spread out to other countries. Media literacy can mean power to how ever may be behind it since they can persuade others, spread their ideas. YouTube is a big way of media literacy since it includes videos that includes music to news and ideas of people with access to internet. Media literacy may be positive but also it may be negative which teenagers and adults are able to understand better. Media literacy is what the future is going to be more like. Its people experience we can use to reflect. In this 21st century any one can create media literacy they can be simple as videos to PowerPoint to magazine. Advertising, propaganda are other ways media literacy is use to market products. Media literacy has influence and expanded during this century and it’s still growing; Media literacy is the future of reflecting and analyzing information.

Donald Trump

Lies

Donald trump has said many lies and some people believe them to the max . One of the lies Donald Trump has said was about the man who rushed to the stage on March 12 was part of Isis. Says the man who rushed the stage at him in Dayton, Ohio, "had chatter about ISIS, or with ISIS" in his social media posts - Donald trump said this after posting a tweet on his personal Twitter account the falling day . Chuck Todd asked Trump this question on "meet the press" a few days later.Trump’s tweet said, "USSS (U.S. Secret Service) did an excellent job stopping the maniac running to the stage. He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail." The link to the video was appended to the tweet. DiMassimo, who could not be reached for comment, has a long history of anti-racist activism - politifact. DiMassimo said the only true reason he tried to rush to the stage was yell and say that Donald Trump is racist. Looking more closely to the tweet and video linked to it,it looked like a memes people did after hearing what happen and how Donald reacted . DiMassimo has even stated that he doesn't have no connection to ISIS and he if he did he wouldn't have been able to be release from jail the next day . This prove that the things that Donald Trump has said are lies and he doesn't even have the facts to back them up. Donald Trump you are wrong again.

Revolution

Revolution

The French revolution well took place in France during the years of 1789-1799. It was radical social and political upheaval in both French and European history. The French revolution was the end of the monarchy that had been ruling France for the past couple of years. It was an epic transformation that France went through. Old ideas about hierarchy and tradition over taken to new Enlightenment principles of citizenship and inalienable rights. The French Revolution began in 1789 with the convocation of the Estates-General (Listverse.) Estates-General was a meeting with representative of each group was called to solve political crisis. Charles Alexandre de Calonne (1734-1802), proposed a financial reform package that included a universal land tax from which the privileged classes would no longer be exempt which was the reason of having the Estates-general. All of this was after the country was left in bankruptcy after its involvement in the American Revolution.

France’s population had changed considerably since 1614. The non-aristocratic members of the Third Estate now represented 98 percent of the people but could still be outvoted by the other two bodies. In the lead-up to the May 5 meeting, the Third Estate began to mobilize support for equal representation and the abolishment of the noble veto–in other words, they wanted voting by head and not by status. The wave of revolutionary fervor and widespread hysteria quickly swept the countryside. Revolting against years of exploitation, peasants looted and burned the homes of tax collectors, landlords and the seigniorial elite. Known as the Great fear this inspired the National Constituent Assembly to abolish feudalism on August 4, 1789, signing what the historian Georges Lefebvre later called the “death certificate of the old order” (History.)What marked the end of the French revolution was when Napoleon Bonaparte appointed himself first consul. Now it was the start of the Napoleonic era in which France would dominated most of Europe.

We can compare the Arab uprising to the French revolution since it was a change in power and others countries followed. This is what had made the French revolution powerful since it lead to the overthrow of the monarchy just like many Arab nations. After the revolution many people saw the truth and knew they did the right movement.

Are we a nation of proles?

Throughout class of media literacy we have studied dystopian societies and it relates so much to our world today we don’t even realize, and it makes us question if we are living or coming closer to this societies. We live in a society that is control by time and money. Our lifestyles go in circles every week and we don't even notice them. To a normal citizen it’s not even noticeable because we are not all educated on dystopias and see how much we can actually relate today. A major key that has managed to control us is the media. Social Media tells us what to upload pictures, hashtags, or even a quick phrase that’s crossing our mind. The media.. How to look, what to wear, what brands to use and even what people are actually famous. Even talent less people like the Kardashian are people we tend to listen or follow them even thought they are famous due to a reality TV show. We criticize how Cuba and North Korea are a dictatorship and massively controlling but do they even know it? North Koreans are not even exposed to the world outside that country and what the government tells them is what they go by. Outside their walls we know the truth and that they are being lied to but what about our walls? The media plays a major roles with our choices that we make on a daily basis; they tell us what to wear, whee to eat, who to listen to, who to watch on tv and even what ideal beauty is, what we should look like or aim to be like. All these questions make me question my own government and if were actually as free as they make us seem. Humans are not meant to be perfect in the world but sometimes I question is were just a science experiment with others experimenting how manipulative we can become. Maybe this is just since our world is upgrading at a faster speed than ever imagined or maybe this is what the government and slowly taking over our brains for bigger plans.

social

social media is a big part of the 21st century and its getting bigger by the seconds. social media is getting people from different ages and places to communicate. Like any other thing in this world it has their pros and cons. the cons are what mostly everyone looks at. the cons are that underage teens get on social media that are meant for people who are 18 and older. also many people can lie about anything like age,gender and even identities.The pros of social media is that it can inspire movements and spread news of whats happeining in different countries

Reflection

looking back to my first smore i was able to see what i thought media lit was going to be and how we see it in the world. I thought it was going to be how literature affects social media and how it can influence the way we think. I was almost on point but i really see its about how we can analyse and not just have one way at looking at thing but see it in other views. My initial thought have change and now i have an idea of what really is media lit and how it effects the way it can persuade us.Something that I learn in class that I enjoy was reading 1984 and how a book written in the past is almost on point of our life and it seems crazy but at the same time its true. Being part of an elite group of people that can relate to this book is something i can relate and transfer it to what is happening out in the world. My favorite line is "two plus two equals five" which is going to stick with me forever , its like people are brainwash and you are not since you have an idea of what really going on thanks to 1984. Overall this class has been the best language arts class i have since it involves thing like social media and videos things that we actually do in our daily life and now we had a chance to be on them for the purpose of a class. which is something different and it made me enjoy the class more. I personally think the course of this class does not need to change since its fine the way it is . the only thing i would change is that we should have more time to do smores in class or school and have them done. I best thing I like was to watch cnn student news which made me learn of what was happening in the world and Carl puns were funny at sometimes but it's was something great to watch

Can we auto-correct

As social media began to take over it is only working and increasing its power. We not only allow it to but follow its path. We’ve come to the point that if its not posted we even question ourselves if it happened,our world is compose of posting thing on our social media and we slowly become addicted. This semester I have post more thing on social media and it was basically what I ate, who I saw, what I did, and even how I felt at times. We post picture or videos on snapchat while ignoring the real people that are there with us in the moment.We must learn to cherish those who still care and love us before loving and caring becomes inexistent. we take face to face communation by granted but it's necessary for us to know how to communicate with each other without the help of any social media .this generation has be taken by surprise by technology and along with social media that even at the lunch table we can't have normal conversation with eachother without paying more attention to our phones and what tend on social media . My friends and I do something to change the way social media can effect our communation. We all put our phones in the middle and who ever touches the phones pays for everyone tab ,it a fun thing to do and it let us focus more on our life and talk about plans for the weekends. I don't mind using social media but there should be a limit of where and when not to use it .
