The future of American people

We really need a leader (president, governor, mayor) who really represents our values, hopes, dreams, for America, not a leader like we have now who is full of hatred to many groups, and undermine things are very important to us like health care, the Republicans as of right now are having a secret meeting that …

We really need a leader (president, governor, mayor) who really represents our values, hopes, dreams, for America, not a leader like we have now who is full of hatred to many groups, and undermine things are very important to us like health care, the Republicans as of right now are having a secret meeting that is discussing health care with no knowledge or even know what is actually in the plan itself before voting and discussing it amongst other members of Congress. 

This is completely unacceptable,” Sanders told CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson. “Nobody can defend a process, which will impact tens of millions of Americans, and nobody even knows what’s in the [legislation]…The reason they don’t want to bring it public is that it’s a disastrous bill, I suspect similar to what passed in the House.” “It was the worst piece of legislation, frankly, against working class people that I can remember in my political life in the Congress. Throwing 23 million people off of health insurance is beyond belief,” said Sanders.

Even many Republicans are being kept in the dark said Sanders, noting that this tactic underscores issues with the bill that Republicans would have difficulty defending, such as cutting Medicaid in favor of giving tax breaks to the wealthiest  Americans.

“So they want to keep it secret, they don’t want the media involved, they don’t want members of Congress involved,” Sanders told Dickerson. “And at the last minute they present it, they push it through and that is one-sixth of the American economy and millions of people thrown off of health insurance. That is unacceptable.”

The closed-door process has Republicans concerned as well.

“I’ve said from Day 1, and I’ll say it again,” Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee, told the New York Times. “The process is better if you do it in public, and that people get buy-in along the way and understand what’s going on. Obviously, that’s not the route that is being taken.”

McConnell defended his approach, telling the New York Times there have been “gazillions of hearings on this subject” over the years.

For Sanders, the only solution is full transparency, and on Sunday he called on Democrats to “do everything they can to oppose” the Senate bill

Lets not be divided as Americans

I really hope after everything that has been happening after Donald Trump being the next president of the United States, that we all as Americans stay united, not let politicians, political parties, and media divide us as a whole.  This really was the worst year to come as of yet because we now have a president who may or may not be impeached who has no political experience whatsoever and there are so many people who fall into the trap like Donald Trump supporters who does everything they get told to do by politicians who run every year like chanting “Lock her up” which is an reference to Hillary Clinton. We all really need to stick together, and make rallies, protests to make our voices be heard by local representatives or politicians.

Final Days in CT101

This year has been one of finding new things, learning more about the wrold, and seeing what I could do when I went into something new. I really enjoyed my time here in CT101, and I was able to gain more experience in programs that I wouldn’t have touched beforehand. I came into this class looking to make GIFs and videos so I can put them on the internet for others to see, and I got what I came for and more. I enjoyed making GIFs, videos, and Net Art, even during times where I had problems getting them to work, or when I was just procrastinating.

I feel that the most frustrating part I learned to do was the Net Art: as shown by “Prospector Walking into the Internet”. I felt that, even if it took a lot of time to fully develop, it is one of the posts I am most proud of. I am also proud of posts like : “Typography Exercise”, “What Makes Me Happy: Tokusatsu”, “Flexibility in Storytelling: A Narrative through Images”, and “My First Website”. I feel that these posts really showed a different side of myself that I don’t show often.

I want to keep my website open, and do more works with it. I want to do more with Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro, and make more videos, better videos even. I also want to start work with After Effects, because it’s a form of animation that I am unfamiliar with. I have even started showing an interest in pixel art, and want to try my hand at that. I will also keep other aspects of my original idea for the website, such as posting reviews and fanfiction that I would write. I’m happy that I got to join this class as it brought out a more creative side of me, and I hope I can continue it in the near future. A big thanks to my fellow students who always kept me in high spirits, and a big thank you to Ryan, who helped motivate me through some difficult animations, and helping me out with the Net Art. Thank You all and have a fantastic Summer!

So Long, Farewell CT 101!

As I stated in my first post,  Back To School After Winter Break Blues: I Wasn’t Ready, my goal for CT 101 was to explore more of my creative side.  So did I achieve my goal?

  • Commenting/Critiquing:Well, I think I achieve some of my goals but I wish I could have been more active when it came to commenting on others’ websites.  My excuse: I have 6 classes, so trying to spending at least 4-5 hours a week on a website was very hard. (Even though, I’m somewhat engaging with others in online conservation about my work, I would barley comment on other classmates’ work ) My plan this summer is to actually look some of my classmates’ sites and engage in online conservation.
  • Blogging: As you all know, my website is supposed to be geared towards black beauty, yet I only have 4/10 posts that actually pertain to the purpose of the blog.  I’m not sure either I should sulk or be happy about it. Sometimes, it’s good to discuss things other than beauty. But at the same time, I wanted my blog to  follow a clear objective,
  • Digital Storytelling Projects: I tried my best to complete assignments of four different media throughout the semester. Post such as Flexibility in StoryTelling: Diversity for Black Women and  Creating Magic With Photoshop for Amateurs!, I feel encompasses the different types of media. I loved  Creating Magic With Photoshop for Amateurs! because this was my first interaction with Photoshop. In my post such as My First Impressions + Review: Juvia’s Place The Saharan Palette , I really incorporated things such as visual audio (Youtube) and using pictures and gifs to explain my love for the Saharan Palette.

Overall I love this class and I thank Ryan for his guidance throughout my class experience in CT 101. If I was re do my undergraduate year again, I would definitely been a CT minor.
