Social Media

The Media

The media to me is seen as a useful source if used correctly or it could just be a disturbance to life. In general, it makes me feel like they advertise false information to the world to make them believe that everything they say is true. I feel like the media takes advantage of people and makes people believe what they want us to believe. But it all depends on the person who uses the media, because the media can be a helpful source in everyday life like; telling you the news in any part of the world, or it can keep you updated on the most current event of the year. When people use the media for social entertainment then that is what I call, being dragged into a world you cannot escape. The media can drag you into the world of entertainment such as the social networks; Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram distracting you and shutting you out from reality. Especially in teenagers today, our society has created these forms of entertainments for their own use as advertisement and do not see that this type of media is creating a society of teens who live in a cyber-world. I don’t understand why my generation today lives for the social media, what are they getting out of it? I disagree that any of the social networks are beneficial they just take up time, and many times brain-washes a person. Overall, the media cannot control your life and people have the option to make it a useful tool.

"It's Beautiful"

Coke Cola in its 2014 Super Bowl commercial “It’s Beautiful”, flaunts the miscellany of cultures, lifestyles, and race that connect America together as one.

The company’s purpose is to indicate to a developing nation that in America the people are countless, and in order to being an on growing society our diversity of cultures has integrated us to becoming a country of beautiful color. The Coca Cola commercial is presented in a appreciative tone to open the eyes of an expanding nation who needs to realize that America is an appreciable home to all people.

The Ridge's New Mission


In the School district of Gwinnett County, the school Peachtree Ridge High School known for their Standard of Excellence has pride themselves with a new aspect of child obesity.

The school has been accorded another top honor award for being the most corpulent school in the county.

The faculty and staff of PRHS are deliberately working on a new plan to remove the Garden Spot, by adding more saturated and Trans fats foods as the supplementary lunch alternatives.

Effective in the beginning of the fall semester school year of 2015, the lunch will serve students Chick-Fil-A biscuits in the mornings, Starbuck’s coffee, pastries, and snacks throughout the day, and will serve Five Guy’s appetizing menu during lunches. The water fountains will be removed and more vending machines will be configured to 50 cents on all snacks and drinks.

Their plans to keep their high expectations has conveyed the cafeteria staff to predict that students will no longer complain of nasty foods and the school will have achieved another great accomplishment for others to look upon at.

“Peachtree Ridge may serve any foods to my son and daughter, if that is what is going to keep the school at number one,” said the callous parent, whom is more worried about the school then his children’s health.

Mr. Mathews, principal of Peachtree Ridge also made a remark, “I stood in the cafeteria by myself a few days ago thinking how significant this plan would be, together we will move forward the great things happening here in academics, athletics, arts, and in the nutrition of our students.”

America's Holocaust

The Holocaust was a horrendous murder of approximately six million African Americans by the American government and its collaborators. In January 1933, the President that came into power was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, he believed that Americans were "racially superior" and that the African Americans, deemed "inferior," and were an alien threat to the so-called American racial community.


During the era of the Holocaust, American authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived "racial inferiority": Hispanics and some Asian people. Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah's Witnesses, and homosexuals. By 1945, the American government and their collaborators killed nearly two out of every three African Americans as part of the "Final Solution," the American policy to murder the people of African American descend. The Americans targeted the non-African community, and deported millions of Hispanics and Asians for forced labor in Texas, where these individuals worked and often died under deplorable conditions. In the early years of the American regime, the National Democratic government established concentration camps to detain real and imagined political and ideological opponents. In the years before the outbreak of war, SS and police officials incarcerated African Americans, Hispanics, and other victims of ethnic and racial hatred in these camps.


To concentrate and monitor the African American population as well as to facilitate later deportation of the Africans, the Americans and their collaborators created ghettos, transit camps, and forced-labor camps for Africans during the war years. The American authorities also established numerous forced-labor camps, both in the so-called Greater Texas, for non-Africans whose labor the Americans sought to exploit. In the final months of the war,

SS guards moved camp inmates by train or on forced marches, often called “death marches,” in an attempt to prevent the Allied liberation of large numbers of prisoners. As Allied forces moved across U.S. in a series of offensives against the United States, they began to encounter and liberate concentration camp prisoners, as well as prisoners en route by forced march from one camp to another. The marches continue until this day April 4, 2014.


The reason for the rewriting of the Holocaust is to show how the United States is a powerful country. The U.S. cannot be defeated; they have many Allies who support them. If any country were to attempt to begin a war they would just become hostages of the U.S. This history rewrite tells the power that the United States holds over all countries.

1984 Uprising

This song relates to "1984", when Winston describes his rebellious thoughts against Big Brother and the Party. Winston doublethinks which is a crime in Oceania, Oceania is a place where people are controlled by a Party and the society acts as a robot. Winston himself is a robot, but he believes that there is a group of people who will overthrow the Party, those group of people are called proles. This song talks about an uprising, uprising meaning an act of resistence or revolt. It could be Winston's theme song for resisting the Party he knows they can make you believe things, and they have the power to get into your head. In the song the part that says, "they will not force us, they will stop degrading us, they will not control us, we will be victorious", can be a quote for Winston because he could be saying it to the brotherhood that he believes exists. He could also mean to say it to Julia telling her how their love will be strong and the Party can not control their minds, but in the end they know they are boound to die, because their love is forbiden. This is a perfect song to describe the way Winston feels throughout the book it also says things that Winston actually goes through in the book.
muse-Uprising lyrics

Uprising


Paranoia is in bloom,

The PR, transmissions will resume

They'll try to, push drugs that keep us all dumbed down

And hope that, we will never see the truth around

(So come on)


Another promise, another seed

Another, packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed

And all the, green belts wrapped around our minds

And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

(So come on)


They will not force us

They will stop degrading us

They will not control us

We will be victorious

So come on


Interchanging mind control

Come let the, revolution takes its toll

If you could, flick the switch and open your third eye

You'd see that, we should never be afraid to die

(So come on)


Rise up and take the power back

It's time the, fat cats had a heart attack

You know that, their time's coming to an end

We have to, unify and watch our flag ascend

(So come on)


They will not force us

They will stop degrading us

They will not control us

We will be victorious

So come on


Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey


They will not force us

They will stop degrading us

They will not control us

We will be victorious

So come on

Reflection

In the Media Literacy course I learned about the true meaning behind the media. Unmasking the media in class opened my eyes and brought up a quantity of opinions. I also understood to be cautious while using the media. I learned to annotate important facts from videos, articles, and information given from my teacher. I learned to understand the key points in sources given to me. I learned to expand my vocabulary, and began to use more descriptive words. My new knowledge eradicated from this class has taught me to write a well formatted essay. I learned to review all my assignments before turning them in. Schoology was a substantial tool and wish that I could continue to use it college. Schoology helped me keep track of all my work and it helped me keep organize all assignments. I will continue to carry on with annotating information in the future; it is a helpful way that helped me understand a concept in a more clear view. If I am still able to use schoology after high school I will use the MLA formatting to assist me on essays or papers that I will write later in life. Another teaching tool that I used in this class was learning to write a Précis, I will continue to use this tool because it made it easier to understand the main concept of any article, letter, movie, or video. This was unlike any other Language Arts class because it covered real- life situations that me as a teenager goes through. The material we learned was more comprehensive because it referred to things that my generation uses as everyday entertainment. I believe this class has been the most I’ve ever learned from any other Language Arts class; I actually believe I will use various tools that have been taught to me in my future. I believe this class is exceptional the way it has been planned to be taught. I gained numerous information and don’t believe anything should be improved.
