Before creating this slide, I watched a video about how advertisers make billboards that capture the attention of its viewers. I learned that these advertisers use “empty space” as an advantage. They leave the people looking at the billboards wondering what’s next, but they know what the billboard is about. Because of this, people might be more likely to go into the store. Another thing that advertisers to is let the pictures “ bleed” off the page. This basically means that when people look at this picture, they show believe that the picture continues off the page and goes on further. Throughout this project, I had a lot of trouble. I didn’t know how to express myself in one slide. However, as the project went along, I learned that not everything has to in many words. This meant one thing to me: just be simple! There is no need to try to make a long power point and add all these effects to be “cool”. One slide can express all you stand for and how you are like as a person.
This picture best represents me because I am a very bubbly person, hence the bubble. This picture also represents my belief. I always believe that everybody is just a small part in this word and each person has something that makes them unique. Also, I think that a lot of people choose to keep what makes them special inside.This is why the bubble has a rainbow inside of it. Lastly, the quote is included because it adds on to my belief and I wanted to make my overall message stated and clear.
In this unit, the class was focused on how to make a slide that not only looks good, but it captures the attention of all those who look at it. At the very beginning of this unit, I was so scared. I only knew the basics of creating a slide. However, by the end of this unit, I learned all the different techniques that goes into planning slides.
To start off this unit, Ms. Hull set the class up for failure. She asked us to create a one slide slideshow. This was very difficult because she gave us no type of help. Even though we had a little introduction lesson on how slides are created to be appealing, it was really hard and my first slide was disastrous! However, after presenting, I received feedback and I believe that my second slide is much better. In the end, I learned that slides do not have to be cluttered with things to make it unique. All in all, this unit taught me a lot and it was very insightful.
Comparing “Taming of the Shrew” to “27 Dresses”
Both movies, “Taming of the Shrew” and “27 Dresses”, are about love, but the love that is being shown is not romantic love. It’s forced love. Forced love is when someone does something to make other person be in love with them. The way most people use force love is with lies. In the book, “Taming of the Shrew” Lucentio made Bianca to believe that he was a teacher named Cambio just to get close to her and get her to marry him. And in the movie, “27 Dresses”, when Tess came back into town and met George, she pretended to like everything he did just to get George to fall in love with her and get him to marry her.
Though Lucentio and Tess basically did the same thing, they still in eclectic situations. What made Lucentio’s situation different is even though he lied to Bianca she still decided to marry him. Tess had a different situation. Once George found out that she lied to him decided to call off the wedding. Also, Tess wasn’t the one who told him she lied to him. Jane, the main character and also the first one to be in love with George before Tess, told him and everyone at their engagement dinner who Tess actually was when she was showing the slide shows. These two situations shows that, over time, the way some people find the spouse have only changed slightly but not dramatically. But they are very similar. Honesty in relationships is very rare. But deception has been in multiple relationship for so many years. It helps people forces other people to fall in love with them for the wrong reasons.
“Believe me, sister, of all the men alive
I never yet beheld that special face
Which I could fancy more than any other.”
(Act II, Scene i, 10-12)
In this quote, Bianca was talking to her sister about how she have not found the right man to marry yet. She says, “I never yet beheld that special face”. Which means, just like most people, she’s just worried about finding a handsome guy and not a guy with a good personally. But the movie was a bit different. When George first met Tess, he began to fall for her looks. This tells the viewers that looks means a lot to guys and not just the female’s personality.
In the beginning of the “27 Dresses,” Jane’s best friend, Casey says to Jane sarcastically, “Yea, that’s what guys want, responsible.” Unlike Lucentio, George eventually started to like Tess’ personality, even though what she told him about her was all a lie. He liked what she told him. Even though there is a saying that goes, It’s not what’s on the outside that matters it’s on the inside that counts, this movie is displaying the opposite.
Merchant, “as Vincentio”
“Thou liest. His father is come from Padua and here looking out at the window.”
(Act V, Scene i, 31-33)
In this quote, Vincentio realized he was being impersonated. Tranio had to find some to impersonate Vincentio, Lucentio’s father, just to insure Lucentio of the money he was going to get if he was to marry Bianca. One night, the real Vincentio decided to come see his son and out the window looked the merchant, the person who was pretending to Vincetio. Kevin’s and Lucentio’s situations are similar, but it could be seen different because of what they lied for. Lucentio lied for riches while Kevin lied to keep his identity.
In the middle of the movie, Jane was a bakery place getting Tess’ and George’s cake together when Tess decided to surprise Jane with her favorite wedding writer, Malcolm, also known as Kevin. Jane was so confused and angry when she saw him because she hated that he lied to her to protect his identity. Another way Kevin’s and Lucentio’s situation could be seen as different is when the real Vincentio found out that Lucentio had someone to impersonate him he wasn’t really mad. But when Jane found out that Kevin was actually this wonderful writer that she admired so much she was beyond angry.
Throughout the movie, there were a good amount of issues that started because of deception and lack of honesty. Once Jane saw that Tess had destroyed their mother’s wedding dress she realized she’d been pushed too far. So at the anniversary dinner Jane decided to tell everyone about the real Tess when she was presenting the slide show about Tess and George. This set awkwardest all in the building. It also caused the Tess and George to break up. After all the madness was over, Jane realized that she was in love Kevin, a writer that she admire.
At the end of the movie, Jane and Kevin got married and Tess and George remained single. And at the end of “Shrew” Lucentio won Bianca over and they got married to each other. At the end of “27 Dresses” Jane realized that the person who actually notice you might just be your lover for life and not the person who don’t notice you unless they need something or something went wrong. The movie surprised the audience by having Jane living happily ever after instead of Tess.

Getting The Girl 2011 v. 1590
Comparing “Crazy, Stupid, Love” & “The Taming of the Shrew”
The “Taming of the Shrew” by William Shakespeare is a comedy from 1590 that proves, men attempting to woo women is a centuries long practice. In “Shrew”, male suitors lined up in large quantities to attempt to woo the beautiful Bianca, with no limit on what they were willing to try to win her heart. The 2011 movie “Crazy, Stupid, Love” expresses the same practice of men doing what is necessary to woo women, and although the tactics that these men use are completely different than in “The Taming of the Shrew”, both proved that the main principle of honesty has been what women respond to the most for years.
Although the tactics that Lucentio and Hortensio use in “Taming of the Shrew” in order to try and win over Bianca are completely different than the tactics that Cal Weaver and Jacob Palmer deployed in order to win over women, the principle of honesty when attempting to woo these women remained there. Lucentio and Hortensio dress up in school teacher garments in order to get close to Bianca. Lucentio uses honesty hidden in his Latin lesson with Bianca, and Hortensio uses honesty hidden within a gamut. All that Cal and Jacob have to do is walk up to women and talk to them. These two situations show exactly how men and women have remained the same through centuries when it comes to what they respond to in the opposite sex. Both of these texts reflect that over years the tradition has been the same, multiple men walk up to attractive women and try to woo them in hopes of being with them. Although the measures in which these men take may have changed, the tradition and principal has remained the same.
“'Hic ibat' as I told you before- 'Simois' I am Lucentio-
'hic est' son unto Vincentio of Pisa- 'Sigeia tellus' disguised thus to get your love- 'Hic steterat' and that Lucentio thatcomes a-wooing- 'Priami' is my man Tranio- 'regia' bearing my port- 'celsa senis' that we might beguile the old pantaloon.”
(Lucentio, Act 3 Scene i, 33-38)
Within this quote, Lucentio is disguised as a schoolmaster and attempting to woo Bianca through pure honesty. He is forced to encode his message within his “lesson” due to the fact that Bianca’s other suitor, Hortensio, is also within the room during this time. He uses this honesty at his advantage, and she responds just as he hoped she would. This is also shown with Cal in “Crazy, Stupid, Love”.
In this earlier scene from “Crazy Stupid Love”, Cal is walking up to a women in a nightclub, and it is his first time attempting to talk to another female since his split with his wife. Jacob gave him a game plan when talking to women, but when that does not go well he immediately apologizes and is completely honest with the woman. “Im sorry! I’m in corporate insurance, I have children, plural. And my wife was cheating on me with David Lindhagen, which I wasn’t supposed to tell you about either. Nice to meet you.” “What were you supposed to tell me?” “I don’t know, I was supposed to say that you are the perfect combination of sexy and cute. Which is actually something that I used to say to my wife, but now it’s become corrupted. And I have 8 layers of clothes on. I’m wearing a shirt, and a tie, and a sweater, and a suede jacket that just seals in all the heat. Seals in all the juices. It’s just all sweat under here, this is all sweat from here down. And this sweater, it’s called slim cut, but it feels like a scuba suit. And I’m looking at your breasts, what is that about?” “You think I’m the perfect combination of sexy and cute?” Just like Lucentio, Cal is completely honest about everything that’s going on. He reveals the facade that he is portraying, and tells her exactly who he really is just like Lucentio. The comedy within this movie surrounds this, and proves to the audience the overall power of honesty when attempting to woo a woman.
'"Gamut" I am, the ground of all accord-
"A re" to plead Hortensio's passion-
"B mi" Bianca, take him for thy lord-
"C fa ut" that loves with all affection-
"D sol re" one clef, two notes have I-
"E la mi" show pity or I die.
Call you this gamut? Tut, I like it not!
Old fashions please me best; I am not so nice
To change true rules for odd inventions.”
(Hortensio, Act 3, Scene 1, Line 76)
During this quote, Hortensio is dressed up as Bianca’s musical teacher and uses the gambit, in which he is attempting to teach her, to reveal who he really is and his love for her. The problem within this situation is, Bianca does not like the gamut due to the fact that she is used to what she already knew and she does not like change. Their is also an added element of the fact that Bianca has another honest suitor that’s willing to do anything necessary to be with her. This is one situation in which honesty did not end as well as it could due to other factors. This also occurred within “Crazy, Stupid, Love” with Jacob.
In this very early scene in “Crazy, Stupid, Love”, Jacob walks up to a woman named Hannah along with her friend in a nightclub and attempts to woo her. Although he uses complete honesty this is does not work due to the fact that Hannah is not single and does not like his straightforwardness. “That’s weird because I think your friend Hannah is really sexy.” “Oh my god! You did not just say that. How old are you?!..... Don’t you think you’re a little too old to be using cheesy pick up lines?”...... “Wow Hannah, you’re really wearing that dress like you’re doing it a favor!-- That’s a line. Me sitting over there for the past two hours not being able to take my eyes off you is a fact. I mean there’s lots of beautiful women in this bar, your friend included, Hi”, “I love you.” “But I can’t take my eyes off you. That’s a fact it’s not a line.... Ok Hannah, can I buy you a drink?” “It’s time to go home.” In the same way that Hortensio attempted to “get” the women that he was interested in using honesty, Jacob did the same and they both did so to no avail due to different factors. This proves to the audience of these two medias that although honesty does often help when it comes to attempting to woo a person, it is unrealistic to believe that just because you’re honest that person will automatically fall in love with you over any other suitors or people that may want them.
Due to the fact that at the end of both “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and “The Taming of the Shrew”, honesty won over the women that the men wanted, it just reflects a society that wants to see a happy ending with couples that started from honest, romantic love. At the end of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” Jacob ends up with the women that he truly wanted, and in “The Taming of the Shrew”, Lucentio ends up with Bianca, but Hortensio ends up alone only because of the fact that only one character could have Bianca. Although Cal didn’t necessarily get his wife back like he wanted at the end of the movie, the way in which the movie ended with the screen panning out to Cal and his wife watching their son, who had just graduated, in admiration allows the audience to foreshadow that they will get back together.
Greeting (Good Morning Classmates)
Introduction to project (explain what project is about)
Explain what it means
Purple because it is one of my favorite colors
Galaxy background because it shines and stands out (as myself)
Explain quote and how it relates to me
Explain how I interpreted Presentation Zen
(Large Font, Visual, Contrast, Empty Space,)
What I learn was to not have a image pixelated in the background and to speak correctly when I'm in front of the audience. What I now did different was to get a different image that was not pixelated for my background. The way Ms. Hull set me up for the future was to always check your what you are doing and to always take your changes in everything you do.
“Say as he says, or we shall never go.”
Act 4, Scene 3, Line 13
The Taming Of The Shrew has two characters that get married, Katherine and Petruchio. Petruchio has wed Katherine against her will in order to get money that her father will give him. Both characters are stubborn and mean to anyone who tries to get close to them or is just in the way. Katherine hears of her sister Bianca's wedding and the newlyweds are supposed to attend the celebration. But Petruchio is still in the process of completing his secret plan at this point; break Katherine into the perfect obedient wife.
To test her he say's that the moon is shining even though it is clearly the sun. Katherine then tries to argue that it is the sun but quickly stops as he threatens to not go to the wedding. Petruchio's servant Hortensio then whispers the quote above to Katherine so that they can attend the wedding. Petruchio expects Katherine to follow where ever he goes and agree with whatever he says. No matter how crazy or wrong it is.
Husbands aren't always the person demanding attention and respect all the time though. Sometimes it's the best friend or servant or even the wife that has expectations to be met.
In Ted, John has a magical stuffed bear that has been his best friend sense childhood. They do everything and go everywhere together. John has always depended on Ted to fill him up with the friendship he never had as a child. In this part of the movie, Ted asks John to hang out with him later. John turns him down saying that he has an anniversary dinner with his girlfriend Lori. Hearing this, Ted acts upset and not thrilled one bit with the fact that John and Lori are having their 4 year anniversary.
Ted expects John to be free whenever he needs something. His thinking is that if John really cares for him he'll come when called. It's not enough for Ted that John lets him live for free in his apartment with Lori and himself. The expectations have increased between them over the years. Just like the expectations Petruchio has for Katherine increases every time he breaks a piece of her spirit. Ted has been easing his expectations onto John sense childhood nurturing it in his head. While Petruchio is force-feeding his expectations onto Katherine daily with no remorse. Wether it's by a friend or a lover, expectations are being made everyday.
“First kiss me, Kate, and we will.”
“What, in the midst of the street?”
“What, art thou ashamed of me?”
“[No] sir, God forbid, but ashamed to kiss.”
“Why, then, let’s go home again. Come, sirrah, lets away.”
“Nay, I will give thee a kiss. Now pray thee, love, stay.”
Act 5, Scene 2, Lines 147-154
After Bianca and Lucentio wed in The Taming Of The Shrew they throw a dinner for everyone to attend and dine together. Katherine walks with Petruchio at her side as people enter the large hall. Wanting to prove his ownership once more, Petruchio stops and tells Katherine to kiss him before entering. He gives her the options to stay at the party and kiss him or refuse and go back home.
Katherine wants to go inside the hall and see her family. To see the father who wed her to this maniac and to see her sister who has gotten her true love. At the same time Katherine doesn't want to kiss Petruchio, especially not in front of a crowd of people. Her family expects her to show up to the party while her husband Petruchio expects her to kiss him or go home. To satisfy both sides she puts her feelings aside and kisses Petruchio quickly to get it over with.
Katherine found a way to make everyone content for the occasion at hand. Both sides want their high expectations met by Katherine no matter the feelings she has. This happens all the time between families, friends, and lovers in life.
John is faced with a similar problem as Katherine in this part of Ted, the movie. His girlfriend Lori is ready for marriage and to have a better life with John. She is tired of John letting Ted dictate his life and get between them. While Ted wants to stay at Johns side forever as best friends. Ted and John have already been friends for more than 20 years. Ted wants the relationship to be everlasting while Lori wishes for John to choose her and let Ted go forever.
To compromise and try to gain peace, John makes a decision. He decides to make Ted get his own apartment and job so that Lori can have the place just for herself and John. Now to make Ted not seem alone and left out John also decides to visit him keeping contact. John loves Lori more than anyone else he's known romantically. At the same time Ted is the best and only close friend that John has had all his life. Both of them are important to John and now they are making him choose against his feelings of having happily living together.
In the times of The Taming Of The Shrew women often had no rights or say in who they married. Women also had no voice in their marriages. All they were supposed to do was follow their husbands commands. Ted brings the same points but in a modern sense. Yes people have more of a say in who they marry. But now there's no guarantees like back in the day.
Once a woman married, she and her husband were actually bonded until death died them part. Now a days women and men divorce, separate, and then elope at least once after the first marriage. A man and woman had to be married before they could become intimate in the Shrew. While in Ted there are prostitutes, drunken sex at parties, and sex between mates that have not yet tied the knot.
Society has let dating and courtship become less organized and traditional. Less people are getting blessings from parents before marriage while parents are letting their children have a say in who they bring home for the blessing. Even as time progresses towards the future, society will always have people coming up with expectations for their mates to live up to.

Introductory for why I have this slide:
Alicia: Is a girl who actually doesn't know “what she likes” nor do I know the answer to “why” to any question really. However, I do know or at least has an ideal of who she is. For starters, I don’t care how a person truly perceives “What they THINK I am like.” Only because I know what I truly am. As I refer to “What I am” I speak as in the things that I do. These things all make up parts of what I do as a human being, what I do as Alicia. I know of each decision I make and why but each and everyone of them will all have an affect on my life.
The Reason for my slide: My slide is eye-catching, I used big font for my letters, my slide has one point but it can draft off into different points. Lastly, I did use my contrast nicely and rule of thirds in a evenly set way. Black background : You see that my background is all black and this is because I can be mean at times but when I am happy I can have the prettiest attitude ever. This connects to the bright pink letters of my name and how I used a spatial view between letters to have an emphasis on how my name is much more than just any name : A L I C I A. Although I can be a bit crazy I am truly a cool person. So this is why I have added the quote “This is who I am. Nobody said you had to like it.” - Miley Cyrus. In conclusion I am who I am. No matter what someone might think about me I am going to be myself regardless. Even if I do not know who I am yet, I still have quite a few time to find myself. Maybe then my background would be filled with beautiful pictures and so forth.
Q2 Reflection #2
Nelson Mandela murió en cinco de Diciembre. El fue en su casa de Johannesburgo y él se hizo enfermo. El tenía noventa y cinco años. Mandela es popular en Sudáfrica y el dijo infección del pulmón. Luego, es peligroso en veinte y tres de Junio. Mandela era el primero presidente de negro. En Sudáfrica, el otro líder es Frederik de Klerk. Había una guerra civil por blancos y negros. Nelson Mandela era el primero presidente negro. Mandela fue es cárcel por veinte y siete años porque sus acciones.
Es triste cuando murió porque muchas personas les gusta. El es múy simpático! En Estados Unidos, President Obama es primero presidente de negro. Obama cambió nuestra historia. Yo pienso en Sudáfrica, gente recorda Mandela de acción. No me gusta President Bush porque el piensa en guerra. La economía ahora es mal. Este año, sabo muchos gente muere. Mandela es viejo y yo pienso es mejor. Mis amigos me dijeron en facebook y yo tuve que preguntar. Tambien, yo miré las noticias. Yo aprendí mucho de él. Nelson Mandela tiene educación y el es un abogado. I quiero gente en Sudáfrica votar.

Script for Dance
To start off with I made a professional dancers picture as my background along with her quote about dance. That quote in particular in my opinion is very unique and significant because I can relate to it. The picture is also of that same professional dancer named Martha Graham. My title is “Dance Is Me” I chose that title because I believe it expresses who I am and one my major interests. A part of my picture bled off my page which was an element of design on the website called Presentation Zen. Another element of design that I used was empty space. Just as it said in the example you don’t have to fill everything in and make it look cluttered.
In technology class so far I've learned a lot although like Ms. Hull says she sets us up to fail which at the beginning really bothered me. Some changes I made to my slide were choosing between my title and my quote and I chose to keep the quote.This time I have the words from the quote following the dancer. Since I have black as my background I changed the quote from being highlighted and put it as a lighter color so it wasn't fading into the background. In the quote I lined up the beginning of the letters so it went along with the dancer in the picture. Something I learned from the class discussion about my project is that I needed to change the picture up a little bit so that it’s not pixilated.
Good Morning classmates:
There are many reasons why I choose this saying. It was because a smile brighten everyones day. Even when your have a terrible one someone smiles at you can make you smile.So I wanted everyone to smile instead of frowning. I created this slide the way I did because of the color contrast, the empty space, to make it visually eye catching and the font is large. I choose the colors yellow,blue and purple because the purple would make the blue and yellow standout and the yellow because most smiley faces are yellow so I made that the color of the word smile and blue is the word frowning because blue is associated with a sad emotion. I made my pics and font so big so everything could be seen. Also I separated the pics from the font so there would be space left and everything was jumbled or grouped together. So I hope I have brightened your day with a smile.
Thank You for listening
Logan Smith Mags Slide Reflection Jan. 8 ,2014
I have learned many things in our class even if Ms.Hull set us up to fail. The first thing I learned is sometimes it’s better to keep it simple. For example in my slide I made everything huge to stand out when I didn’t have to. If I had made some things smaller and and elaborated on my quote it would have been better.So that is along with that I made a few more changes. I changed my background from purple to yellow so that yellow could still be incorporated also it was a better color for my picture and writing to stand out from. I also learned more about spacing and noticed that my spacing was all wrong so I changed it so that everything about my space so that it was space on the ends of my slide and centered everything. I also changed the color of my font because yellow was a not good color for the words, I changed it so that the other colors were in there. I also change how it was white behind my font and changed the color of the blue because it wasn’t close to the color blue in my frowning face. I changed my font to something more simple and classy. Those were my changes to my slide.
Falleció Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela era presidente de Sudáfrica en los años 1994 a 1999. Nelson Mandela fue un político y revolucionario bien conocido. Nelson Mandela se convirtió en 1994 en el primer presidente negro de la historia de Sudáfrica. Nelson Mandela quería liberar a los personas de Sudáfrica sin violencia. Cuando quería nada de violencia, el gobierno estaba matando y hiriendo los manifestantes. Él estaba en la cárcel por veintisiete años.
Le dio mucha esperanza a mucha personas. Ayer, Nelson Mandela murió. Muchas personas tienen la tristeza. Ellos lo recordarán. Nelson Mandela tenía muchos problemas respiratorios. Murió en su casa con su familia cerca. Nelson Mandela fue de 95 años. Su lucha de la igualdad para su personas será recordado para las edades por venir.
Yo decidí escribir sobre este artículo porque cuando un gran hombre y líder de el mundo muere, es una gran pérdida. Muchas personas en todo el mundo están de luto por esta pérdida.
Yo aprendido nueva vocabulario de este artículo. Yo aprendido que Sudáfrica es “South Africa” en Inglés, que segregacionista es “segregationist” en Inglés, y que infección pulmonar es “pulmonary infection” en Inglés.
Espero que el pueblo de Sudáfrica frente con la pérdida de este gran hombre.

I chose to present my Me Magazine this way with one slide because it applied many of the rules that Garr Reynolds addresses. Also this was a way that I was able to express myself in the best way possible. I wanted my presentation to be based upon my passion, I made it this way because I thought that this was something that expressed me very much and influenced me in the many ways. I wanted to add in a quote rather than just a title because I believe that it is a good way to show how much dedication and effort crew can take. I used the Rule of Thirds in a way with my slide, I put the quote in the top left hand corner but I kept the central image in that middle because as Reynolds states vision trumps all other senses. Also I incorporated Reynolds rule that my slide should make one point, so I decided to use rowing as my topic which is my passion. Although I only have one slide I kept to the visual theme and only added information about rowing. To keep a fine edge I made the picture bleed off of the sides so there was not a random white background. This is why I designed my slide the way I did.
Reflection of Remake
I learned that blowing up your image is not always the best way for people to understand your one point. I shortened my quote so that it was easy for people to read and still understand the point I was trying to get across. I made my background black so that the other colors popped off. I made sure however that all of my colors contrasted. Also I shrunk my picture down so that it was smaller and the quote bigger. I wanted people to focus more on the quote because it gave more information that I wanted to the viewer. My teacher did not give me much information on this project, so I had many questions that I had to answer on my own. I had to find information on my own about ways to make a slide appealing and this helped me understand how to find trustworthy sites, also how to find information on my own. During the discussions I learned that color contrast is very important. I also learned that centering text and words are really important to a presentation. It can make all the difference when looking at it. These are things I learned and why I changed my project to what I did.
Sieanna Williams Q2
DiCaprio se retira una temporada
Cuando yo vi primero este título, yo estaba una poquita en shock. Yo pienso cosas como, ¿En serio?, ¿Qué te pasa? y ¿POR QUÉ?
El artículo dice que Leonardo DiCaprio dijo, “Estoy un poco desgastado. Quiero tomarme un largo, largo descanso.” Como triste como yo estaba leer esto, yo no pude ayudar sentir feliz para él. Yo entiendo que Leonardo filmaba películas espalda con espalda y él necesita relajar para una vez.
El artículo dijo también que, “El actor dice que aprovechará este tiempo para trabajar más en sus labores humanitarias. Leonardo DiCaprio es, además, un reconocido activista en favor del medio ambiente y desde hace tiempo participa en las iniciativas que promueve el Fondo Mundial para la Naturaleza (WWF).” Como yo dije en mi sumario pasado, me encanta la corazón generoso de Leonardo DiCaprio y el trabajo él dedicó a su vida para muchos años.
Luego en el artículo, lo habla sobre la vida de amor de Leonardo DiCaprio. Todos los días yo paso tiempo en línea simplemente leyendo artículos y viendo entrevistas sobre Leonardo DiCaprio aprender más sobre él. Yo recuerdo un artículo yo leí sobre las mujeres de Leonardo y él dijo que él quiere casarse una mujer que es como su madre. Primero, él no quiso casar porque él tuvo problemas con confiaza de que él vio en vida real y en películas. Él no quiere ser engañarse en su matrimonio. Pero ahora que él tiene treinta y nueve años, él dice él es listo casar y tiene niños. Como enamorada como yo soy con Leonardo DiCaprio, yo seriamente espero que en su tiempo del resto de filma, él puedo encontrar una mujer ser pasar lo demás de su vida con.
En el tiempo medio, yo voy a ver su película Wolf of Wall Street cuando lo es liberó en teatros y después, yo voy a ocupar mi mismo con sus películas viejos hasta que él es listo hacer más.

This is my slide. Many design aspects influenced what my slide looked like. One example of this was I decided to follow the rule of thirds. In the rule of thirds, you utilize empty space. I let my image take up the majority of the slide. Then, I balance my text with the picture. This is a little difficult, since the text cannot overpower the image, but your text needs to be big and clear, so it is easy to understand. Another important aspect of making my slide easy to understand was contrast and simplicity. If there is too much going on on a slide, we would not be able to understand anything. That is why I went with a simple color scheme (black, white, and teal). Contrast is also important, since, without contrast, we would not be able see anything. That is why I chose to use white and teal against my black background. That is how I made my slide. Thank you for your time.
I made my slide with a image for the background, because it would capture the attention of the audience. I made sure the audience could look at it and grasp the meaning before they drew their attention back to the speaker (me). I wanted the slide to be simple, because when there is too much going on the audience can get confused. Also the simple picture describes me. In addition, my middle name is Rose and my favorite flower is a rose.
ScriptI made my slide look like this because I wanted lots of “empty space” like you showed us the website. I also kept the slide simple by not putting lots of pictures or words on it. Like what you told us I kept it visual instead of putting tons of words and information on. That way it is less complicated to look at and you get the gist of what it’s trying to say. For my slide it’s hard to understand unless I explain, but that was my point. So there was a reason for me to even speak. For the purpose of explaining who I am I put a grumpy cat meme on my slide to show I enjoy not only cats, but comedy too.
