Assignment #7

Standard

Wow! The Lyre Bird amazed me. It was so cool that it could imitate the sounds of other animals and things. I never would have imagined a bird that could do such a thing. When I watched this video it kinda showed me what all these amazing things these animals can do all around us that we didnt know about. All around this video was pretty great! ūüôā

Effects of Media on Self Image

Standard

There are alot of effects of media on self image. It can damage your self image very easily. The public gets bombarded when the message is saying that the perfect body is skinny, pretty skin, and just perfect all around. I personally dont think that this is true because I think if you are happy with your body, then you have the right to think you have the perfect body.¬† Studys have shown that that women who possess these so called “perfect bodies” concerns are twice as likely to compare their own bodies with the models on advertisements. This can also cause depression in some girls that think that they are not as good as the models. It doesnt matter what you look like on the outside, its what you are like on the inside. Some women think that if they dont have that perfect body that they wont get that perfect marriage, loving children, and a great career, but that is not true. You dont have to have that perfect body to get all of that. Media on Self Image can make women have eating disorders and get very sick. I also think that it is very stupid for celebrities to go out and get plastic surgery because it doesnt help them at all. They look way better before that and they are just ruining their skin. Personally I dont think that media on self image is ever okay because it just gets girls down and out and depressed.

 

 

Witches!!!

Standard

 As you can see, this so called witch is totally different than a Puritan Witch.  Puritan Witches are usually described by people who worship or talk to the devil or danced around with the opposite sex, and etc. Most witches you see around here like in movies and so on usually have like green faces, ride their brooms, nasty faces, and long noses. Way different than the Puritan Witches. Puritan witches didnt look like withes really. They just looked like theirselves. Our view points of witches have changed majorly because these days we dont just go around accusing people of witchcraft. Something similar about these witches are that they both cast spells on people. The definition of a witch has changed ALOT since the Puritan time!

Salem Witch Hunt

Standard

Back in those days when they accused people of being witches by about anything I would probably be accused one. If I was, I would probably tell them that i was a witch if it kept me from being hanged. I think i would have done the exact same thing they did if i was in there shoes. Its so hard to believe that they treated people like this when most of the time, they really didnt even do anything.

Sorting People

Standard

When I did this¬†I got 7 correct. It was pretty difficult because when I thought they looked Indian they were¬†actually Asian and when I thought they were white as a ghost they were black. When I was trying to pick out the people¬†in different races, I looked at their skin color, hair, and eyes. If they had kinda tan skin and long black hair there was more than likely¬†American Indians and if they had dark skin and really curly hair and it was thick¬†they¬†were probably black. I think that this is very important to ourselves because it shows all of us that you¬†can’t just pick out a person and say there so and so race because of their skin color or how they look because they might be a totally different one.
