11/6 adveritsement mandy and ben

https://bvonde.wordpress.com/2017/10/08/bed-bath-and-beyond-ad/

 

In this advertisement by Bed Bath & Beyond, there is a woman in the middle surrounded by items you may need to buy for the holidays. This is a very sexist advertisement and implies that it is the women’s job to cook, do the housework, and clean. You would never see an advertisement with a man in the middle instead. In the past, it was the men’s job to hunt and provide for the family. Therefore, men had to be dominant, strong, and independent. On the other hand, it was the women’s job to bear children and do the housework. Because of this, women were viewed as helpless, submissive, and dependent on men. Even though women are becoming more equal to men, these stereotypes are still present today as shown by this advertisement.

After I read my classmate’s discussions, we all agree on the fact that when you compost a video, you should always focus on the audience and the quality of it. Making a video is not just putting all the pieces together. You need to make good transitions and build up well connections. Understanding your audience is very important to a video composer’s success.

10/21 multimodal arguments(Ben,Bolun)

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/reading-paper-screens/

When we were reading chapter 16 and we found an argument. The author claims that reading on paper is more beneficial comparing online reading. The author stated that online readers are easily distracted while paper readers can easily focus and take notes.  However, I disagree with the author. From my personal experience, I have no trouble doing an online reading for hours long and I won’t get distracted.

Chapter 16, p.383

For essay 3, we need to create a multimodal project, which is different from our normal writing assignments. The Subject from this assignment is to do research on our major and explain it in our video essay. The video essay should be around 3 to 4 mins.

10/2 Google Translate!

The quote in my language Cantonese/Chinese: 幸福並非垂手可得,必須要自己爭取。

Google Trans: Happiness is not at your fingertips and you must fight for it yourself.

My Trans: Happiness is not something premade. It comes from your own actions.

I fixed Google’s translations. The problem with google translate is google only translate the literal meaning of the words it itself, and not phrase nor muti meaning of the words.

9/25 research writing

Today in class I read a research article about strength training. The research talks about which way of training can lead to more strength gain between training to failure or don’t train to failure. The topic of the article is “Resistance Training with Repetition to Failure or Not on Muscle Strength and Perceptual Responses”. According to the article, they compare to groups of people who have been training for 8 weeks, one group trained to failure on a weekly basis and the other group doesn’t. (Joao, 2017) Surprisingly, the group who train to failure have less strength gain than the group who don’t train to failure.
