Pop-up Protest Book Q4 Benchmark

I wanted to put the audience into the protest and the best way was to make a pop-up book. I decided to make the background blue, so it would not distract the view from the pop up art. These pictures are from the protest in Philadelphia,PA. The protest was outside of the School District of Philadelphia about the education budget cuts. I wanted to document the event because it is a moment that needs to be remembered. The background pictures of the buildings was to remind you that it is the city, The reason why the picture has city hall in the distance was to represent how from justice and fairness the situation was. The poster "Unite Here" is written in larger letters because I wanted to show the viewer that people are united and passionate in what they fight for.

NaQuan Harding Capstone

For my Capstone, I wanted to truly test my skills as a writer. So, I decided to attempt at writing a novel. Specifically, I wanted to aim for a word range between 150,000–200,000  words. Throughout my life, I’ve only been writing short stories; the longest one that I’ve ever written was around 20,000 words long, so this is a very large jump for me. I feel like I’ve read more than enough novels in my life to understand the general plot structure, such as build-up, exposition, character development, etc. As a result, I think that I’d be able to pull it off. 


However, there’s one other thing that I want to test myself on as a writer. When it comes to my writing style, I’m very literal and up front when it comes to my use of words. I’m very conservative–hesitant, even–to try and use things like metaphors, similes, and symbolism. I want to try and change that in this project, even if it ends up hurting the story overall because of it. It’s a risk, but I won’t know if I won’t try. 


In the end, even though it isn’t finished, I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot as a writer. Even looking back, I can see a million different ways to change the story as is.

13 reasons why...all you can do is press play

The Written part:

For my independent reading project I read 13 reasons why. There were a few things I liked about the book. One of them were that the structure of the book. I like the structure of the book because it stated the different reasons why she committed suicide. The way they described the reasons were very good. For example, one guy named tyler peeked in her house while she was getting dressed. She described him as a peeping tom and trying to see some of her goods knowing that he could never get her. Another reason why she killed herself was that someone made a list for who has a good body and she was number 1 on the list. Hannah didn’t like that at all because it kind of degrades her in so many ways. After that list guys started coming up to her touching her butt and boobs. Another thing I liked about the book was the cover of it and the back page. I like the saying “you can’t stop the future, you can’t rewind the past, the only way to learn the secret is to press play”. The cover of the book was very dull but eye catching. It makes people think “wow the girl on the cover looks sad and depressed. The book should be pretty good” Some things I did not like was how after Hannah gave the reason and what they did to make her take her own life she had the people talk but then they dragged on. I didn’t like that part because I would have liked for the author to just tell their reaction and their side of the story sweet and short. Something else I did not like about the book about how it was so long. Me personally, I hate long books or long enough books to where I have to put the book down. That part is so unappealing to me because it makes me feel like they are never going to get to what happens especially at the end. When a book is good I want them to kind of hurry up with what happens. The next thing I did not like about the book was the beginning. The beginning to me personally was not all that good. I like books that catch me within the first few words maybe even first few pages. I am interested in books that does not start out boring because then i am going to want the book to end already and put the book down. This whole book resonated with me somewhat. It did because in middle school I was very suicidal. I went through so much that at times I just wanted my life to end. I just didn’t feel like breathing anymore. So to read another book like that made me so thrilled and happy. I just wish the book was shorter and took out some things.
Press play on the video!

Romero y Los Derechos Humanos: Un Análisis

images

Un propósito de este blog es investigar cómo los derechos humanos fueron violados y defendidos en la película Romero. La película, Romero,  se trata del arzobispo Oscar Romero y su cruzada pacífica en contra de los ataques en la gente Salvadoran por el gobierno. En tiempo de las guerras guerrillas, hay muchas violaciones de los humanos derechos básicos. Sin embargo, Arzobispo Romero es un ejemplo de una persona que defendió los derechos de su gente. Aunque este película es una obra de ficción, es basado en los acontecimientos la vida real por lo que es importante y interesante explorar cómo los derechos fueron violadas y defendidos durante la historia.



En los 1970s en El Salvador el gobierno intentó acallar los insurgentes usando violencia en contra de la gente inocente, también. El gobierno mataron y secuestraron muchas personas durante este tiempo. El cura, Oscar Romero fue promovido a arzobispo porque la gente a cargo creyó Romero fue conservador y ayudaría calmar los curas activistas y otros pero no fue el caso. La actitud de paz de Romero cambia cuando su amigo, un cura, fue matado y luego Romero denuncia públicamente los acciones de terror. El habla en el radio en contra del presidente de El Salvador con la atención del nación y los mensajes fueron controvertidos.. El continuó este en los 1980s hasta que arzobispo Romero fue asesinado durante una misa para el funeral de su madre.

Este segmento viola El Derecho Humano número 9.

“Nadie podrá ser arbitrariamente detenido, preso ni desterrado.”


En este escena Romero intentó negociar un situación de los rehenes en una manera pacífica. Después de un acuerdo y la gente y el rehén salen el edificio en paz, los soldados arrestan ellos y Romero por ninguna razón. El Derecho Humano es violado porque hay no juicio justo y Romero no ha hecho nada.


Este parte El Derecho Humano número 7 fue violado entre otros más.

Todos son iguales ante la ley y tienen, sin distinción, derecho a igual protección de la ley. Todos tienen derecho a igual protección contra toda discriminación que infrinja esta Declaración y contra toda provocación a tal discriminación.”


El hombre manejando el carro es el cura Rutilio Grande, un amigo de Romero. El y la gente en el carro fueron matado por ninguna razón. Este Derecho dice que la gente tiene protección, pero al contrario hay no las consecuencias por los crímenes y la gente en la comunidad y en la iglesia como los curas no son seguras.


En este segmento El Derecho Humano número 18 fue violado y defendido.

Toda persona tiene derecho a la libertad de pensamiento, de conciencia y de religión; este derecho incluye la libertad de cambiar de religión o de creencia, así como la libertad de manifestar su religión o su creencia, individual y colectivamente, tanto en público como en privado, por la enseñanza, la práctica, el culto y la observancia.”


El derecho a religión de Romero y la gente fue violado porque los soldados fueron vivido en la iglesia. Un soldado antipatico no dejarlo Romero entrar la iglesia. El soldado intimida Romero y dispara el altar. Este representa la tensiones entre del gobierno y la gente porque, como lo veo, religión es lo que los unió. Romero guio su gente a la iglesia reafirmarse sus derechos a religión.

El mejor cosa que entendí después de viendo Romero es que el gobierno tiene el poder defender los derechos pero sorprendentemente muchos tiempos les van en contra de ellos, también. Es deprimente que una persona como Romero intentó sostener los derechos humanos pero va matado en la tentativa. Simboliza el precio a los derechos y sus importancias.

TWilliams Capstone

 My capstone was a collaboration done with Vincent Russell. My aspect of the project was to apply concepts an ideas that were associated with the trebuchet, was well as demonstrate the ability of what we built. The website provides a history of the trebuchet as it evolved from a medieval weapon. The second feature of my capstone is media of Vinny's capstone which was the trebuchet itself. Finally, the last aspect of my capstone was a research paper that explored the modern day applications of gravitational potential energy, the force that drives the performance of the trebuchet.

This source will be used to give insight throughout my research paper. A paragraph will be written explaining how gravity is used to keep our satellites in orbit for the purpose of communication, navigation etc. Without satellites, our modern society would look extremely different and without the assistance of gravity keeping these satellites in our orbit for service, the satellites couldn’t function.

 

"Gravitational Potential Energy." Phyper Physic. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/gpot.html>.

This source gives insight into exactly what gravitation potential energy is. In my research paper, I plan on discussing it briefly to give background knowledge on how a trebuchet is able to use this to launch objects. In the paper, I will briefly touch on how this concept works but will not go into detail as far as explaining the math and applications of the equation used to calculate gravitation potential energy. .

 

"Gravity." Hyper Physics. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/grav.html>.

This source will be used to find other applications of gravity throughout our society. Gravity works in numerous ways and works on all objects equally. However, some objects are affected differently due to mass or air resistance or other variables that determine how much of it is being affected by the natural force.

 

 

"History | Punkin Chunkin." Punkin Chunkin. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <http://www.punkinchunkin.com/history>.

I needed to know when a trebuchet broke records during this competition because this is one of the few modern day applications of a trebuchet while still keeping in mind its original purpose. Punkin Chunkin is a nationwide event that pits machines against each other to compete for the longest throw of a pumpkin. One specific category is using the trebuchet. Although it isn’t the most powerful machine throughout the competition, it is still fascinating to bring in fans every year. Specifically, Yankee Siege, the record breaking trebuchet has brought in a large fan base to the event.

This source was especially helpful when considering the body paragraphs for my research paper. There are not many applications in modern society for gravitational potential energy. However, gravity is still utilized throughout society and this source gives me some specific examples of what those are. It provided me with four different applications of gravity including the early use of the trebuchets, which will be explained in another part of the capstone, not the paper.

 

 

 

"Kingda Ka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia." Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 March 2013. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingda_Ka>.

I used this source for my final body paragraph of my research paper. Roller caosters in general take advantage of gravity throughout the course of the ride, especially when they are taken to the peak of its track. At the point where the coaster train drops, it is converting gravitational potential energy into kinetic energy. This source gives me specs on the fastest, tallest roller coaster in the world. I used this coaster specifically to give an example of how gravity creates mass amounts of energy and is then used to do work.

 

"Perpetual Futility." Ihup. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/museum/people/people.htm>.

I used this source to analyze how perpetual motion is a theory that often uses gravity to create constant action within a device but to no fault. Usually, these ideas are “futile” and often don’t work. In my paper I talk about how we may indeed use gravity to tackle the problem of creating a machine that can actually produce enough energy to sustain its own operation and supply energy to a load. This would result in unlimited energy and I believe, just as people believed flight to be impossible, we only think this cannot happen because our technology has not yet advanced to that point yet.

 

 

 

"Perpetual Motion." Wikipedia. N.p., n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_motion>.

I used this source to simply explain exactly what perpetual motion was. I used another source to describe how it is applied and related to gravity, but this source specifically gave me an understanding of how exactly to describe it in the paper before diving into deeper analysis of how we may use it in the future because at this point it is a theory that we belive to be impossible.

Pumpkin Chunkin is the last popular application of trebuchets in society. Every year, groups of engineers being their machines to compete for who has the machine that can launch a pumpkin the farthest. In this competition, the machines are categorized and separated based on what type of machine they are. There is one group that is specifically trebuchets and I found an interest into how many of these trebuchets performed. Not to mention, their specs of their machines were astronomical compared to the machine Vinny and I built.

This source is actually a replacement for having the trebuchet in front of the audience because it is always more effective to show people what you’re talking about instead of simply talking about it. This is a clip of the trebuchet working at its finest without actually launching a projectile in the room. This displays the machines potential while still keeping it consistent with the overall message of informing.

This source will be useful for my history part of my capstone which gives a timeline of the uses of the trebuchet on the website. The trebuchet lasted for a great deal until the invention of gunpowder and was then deemed obsolete. Currently, trebuchets are used more for recreational purposes, but still used throughout society. The concept that drives the performance of a trebuchet is gravitational potential energy which will be explained in other parts of the capstone.

This is more evidence I will use in my research that gives light to modern day applications of gravity. Tidal power is used throughout oceans to generate electricity using the tides, which are a result of the earth’s moon and the sun. The gravitational effects these two entities have play a great role in the invention of a new way to create renewable energy. This is both beneficial to society and the environment because, with a struggling ecosystem, there is never a wrong time to sacrifice a little if it means better the earth’s health.

 

"Trebuchet." Wikipedia. Wikipedi, n.d. Web. 11 March 2013. <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trebuchet>.

I used this source as a reference to important dates on my timeline for the trebuchet. I also knew I could obtain information about what different cultures and countries utilized the trebuchet in ways that Alexander used them throughout the sieges. The trebuchet was the primary heavy artillery alternative in the 12th century and remained that way until the invention of gunpowder. It was still used as a last resort, as demonstrated in 1779 by the British. Now, the trebuchet is little more than a little entertainment

The Warwick Trebuchet is the world’s largest trebuchet. I used this source to give perspective in my project for exactly how large these machines were. The trebuchet Vinny and I made was around 11 feet tall, and the Warwick trebuchet stands a towering 59 feet. This also goes deeper into exactly what I wanted to do with this source. Vinny and I had a job cut out for us, which is little in comparison to the jobs architects and engineers have to face every day in their career.

This source was used mainly to demonstrate the modern day application of trebuchets today. Yankee Siege is the trebuchet that currently holds the record for longest pumpkin throw held at Punkin’ Chunkin’ by any other trebuchet. This is the last practical application trebuchets have in today’s society, but it still serves a purpose. Trebuchets that can be made today upstage those used in the 12th century.

Capstone Process Paper

Fitness and Nutrition

file://localhost/Users/rfenton/Desktop/CAPSTONE%20STUFF/

My capstone was a project that I wanted to do so that I could incorporate fitness and nutrition into the daily lives of those who are not generally offered it. I wanted to make a difference in the lives of the elderly, because I know they don't get much exercise. I wanted to be able to get them up and going and energized so that they could be happier and feel better about themselves because working out and being healthy generally makes people happier, because it sends messages to your brain that stimulate it and make it more positive. I teach a zumba class as well as ballet and tap to young children from my dance studio, and that is how I came up with all of the moves for this project. Also, when I went to get my tests done in order to volunteer at Masonic Village Elderly Home I spoke to the old people about what kind of music they like, so that I could make everything upbeat and fun for their age group since I'm not used to teaching anyone over the age of 13. This is when I began attending the older zumba classes (ages 25+) to get a feel of what people in that age range could do. I did a lot of research, made a playlist and was ready to teach zumba every Wednesday. Unfortunately, no one signed up for my zumba class. My outside mentor didn't tell me this, so when I showed up I was told to leave because no one signed up. This is when I had the idea to teach it to the staff members working at the home. I tried to set this up with Kelly but she was very hard to get in touch with and just stopped answering my calls/messages all together. This is when I got really discouraged because I couldn't teach a class, they wouldn't send my TB tests over to me and my mom so that I could go to a different home, so I didn't know what to do. This is when I got the idea to pass out fliers and speak to kids in the halls of SLA about what they can do about eating better and getting daily exercise and how it would be beneficial to them. This was really fun and ended up being better than I expected. For my presentation I will be showing a 3 minute mini lesson on what I planned on doing with zumba, speaking about my research and exactly what happened when my plan failed, and how I picked it back up again by speaking to students and hanging fliers around school to get the word out that eating healthy is cool! I also posted some fliers around my neighborhood. All of my annotated citations are on the document in the folder with the screen shots of my keynote presentation

Rodrigo: A Kid with a Dream

Rodrigo is a kid that lives in Salvador, Bahia , Brazil in the late 1930s. All Rodrigo does is dream of playing football (soccer) for his country. On the night before Rodrigo’s 18th birthday his mom tells him that he has to enlist in the military. This is really important because of the current worldly affairs revolving around World War II. Rodrigo wants no part in the military and just wants to play football. He falls asleep the night before his 18th birthday and has a dream about trying out for the local football club Bahia. He then wakes up the next day and finds himself enlisting in the Brazilian military.

The Light- 4th Quarter BM

“Damn that reeks, how long has this shit been here?” Dharjin sneers. Or rather, bellows, as he is never quite aware of the thunderousness of his own voice. His burly structure does little lessen the affect as well; in fact his towering height carries his voice across great distances, much like the vastness of the edifice in which he and his team now stand.


“Given the dampness and coldness, 2-3 days perhaps,” says Askra, the youngest of the platoon. He walks, unwavering in dull expression, to the rotting body of a young woman no older than 30, it appears. He kneels beside her, flashing a light on pale, petrified eyes and an open mouth. Closing his eyes, he then shakes his head in disgust and continues, “This is the seventh one today.” He scans the distorted face, and a name appears on his screen, “Mafrir, Jinka.”


Askra opens the air tight carton, releasing an impermeable plastic membrane that surrounds the body. Dharjin growls. “Damned fools! All the same reason! They think that they’ll reach Detoxification, but they never will! Only digging their own graves...” he exhales slowly, as if expelling all of his well-kept anger, despite his boisterous behavior that, at times, would make one feel otherwise.


“To them, an ascent of this magnitude is worth their lives many times over,” adds Askra, who is now scanning the area for more bodies, “this ascent is all that they have to live for now.” 


He stands slowly, as if consciously commanding each muscle to perform the painstaking of lifting his mass off the ground. “Let’s search around some more.”


Imagining the previously vivacious and radiant building was now near impossible, giving the dripping ceilings, and mold covered corners. It used to be a one of the most beloved community centers in all of Kilua, and even held some historical value at it was build in 2067, near 100 years ago. However, the recent performance of Detoxification left the edifice abandoned, as community hadn’t mattered so much anymore. Now, it has become a hotspot for crime, and an ideal location for the disposal of evidence. 


Dharjin runs a light along the wall, revealing older and more recent pieces, however, the message  is all the same engraved in the bottom of each frame is the same message, “Hail and behold the light! Seek the truth! Relinquish the self in search of one’s true being!”  He turns away in disgust. “Askra, let’s check up stairs,”


“Fine. But we mustn’t stray too far as we await the captain’s arrival,”


They run a search into the second level, fortunately, and perhaps unfortunately as well, without success. Each rooms grows more cryptic the deeper they enter the building, increasing in darkness, and, more mysteriously, size. Askra’s sharp mind processes this pattern first, which spikes his curiosity to focus more on the location of each room, rather than its content. They reach the end of a hall where the final room is locked. The two men combine their forces in an attempt to break it down, though their attempts are without avail. 


“Shit, this just won’t budge, eh? We’ll have to return to base for a laser- strange that we don’t have one,” Dharjin states.


“Cap might-” 


“I do,” Askra is cut of by the sudden appearance of Fakir, who walks over to the unyielding door after tipping his head in acknowledgment to his team. He adjusts a switch on a concealed wrist band, releasing a steady, yet powerful beam that follows the frame of the at least 10 foot high metal frame. Once the revolution is completed, the door falls inwards, revealing a room possessed by a deafening silence and piercing darkness. Fakir enters first, flashing his brightest light down the room to reveal a machine machine 20 feet high. 


“What is that?” Says Dharjin impatiently


“I’m not sure,” Askra replies as he approaches cautiously, “perhaps an old world generator of some sort- Cap, could I get some more light no this angle? Perhaps I can look inside of its old fusion box and find something” As he begins to search the contents of the of the machine, Fakir asks, “What is our current status on found bodies?”


Dharji replies, “So far one, sir. Female, early 30’s. Mafrir, Jinka.”  


“Cap?” Askra turns abruptly, questioning the sudden disappearance of the light. “Cap, is everything- “


What name did you just say?” Fakir asked slowly, as if words induced a slow poison on his lips. Dharjin gulped as he sees a slight crazed look in the eyes of his commander, now staring at him with his chest rising and falling in rapid succession. 


“Mafrir, Jinka, sir,” He replies with eyes locked on the captain. Suddenly, the area becomes dark as save for the small path of a rolling light, of which, the subordinates quickly realize the captain dropped.


Dharjin steps forwards, with all the cautiousness within his possession, questioning this strange stillness that’s possessed their captain. He clears his throat. “Cap?”


However, Fakir is lost in a trance. In a silent state of opacity, making the air around him completely unreadable.


However.

It is clear that his body trembles slightly, and is growing more spasmodic with every passing moment. And suddenly he crashes! His body convulses, and short, ragged breathes escapes his lungs.


“No! No! This can’t be!” He howls. His teammates are frozen in their placements, having never witness such a behavior from him. He stops with screeching abruptness, lifting his head to confirm his fears. To substantiate the name that had just heard. No. No.


“Jinka,” he whispered.  


~~~~~~


They lazed about in Paliua Fields, enjoying the intoxicating presence of the other, ultimately disregarding all urgency of other matters. Fakir laid his head in the lap of his beloved, who was momentarily lost in some obviously weighty thought. Though he said nothing, as he knew her light consciousness would soon bring her thoughts into light. There was nothing that she’d keep from him. Stroking his hair, she begins:


“Fakir, what do you think of humanity? Of where we stand in the moment?” He wasn’t necessarily taken aback by her sudden question, but he knew that it would obviously lead to what had been keeping her so bottled up.


“I think that we have been in a constant stand still. Yes there have nearly zero world wars in the last 50 years, and international peace is well its way to establishment, however, humanity will not change Jinka,” 


“Even with the that new Detoxification process that their creating? I’ve heard wonderful reviews about it. It will bring us to our highest state of being. It will bring us to true selves! What we were always meant to be! In fact, I’ve been thinking-”


“Stop right there Jinka, I forbid it,” he said sternly 


“But why, Fakir?” she inquired softly. “I think it would be-"


“Do you want to risk your soul for such a thing?! Detoxification is not salvation, it is fraud!”


“But what of the magnificence that it presents! The glory! One mere step away from divinity- if I dare to say that it is not divinity itself!” she gently unwound herself from his embrace, allowing herself physical expression to amplify her words. “Darling, we now have the capabilities to be so much more! More than another animal in the food chain, or being made for a purpose. We have given ourselves power, knowledge, and access to worlds unknown. But now, oh now, there is nothing beyond our reach. We have found a way to maximize our human potential!” 


He looked at her with sad eyes, while contrastingly, she looked at him with overwhelming joy. He grit his teeth for a second before tearing his eyes from hers, which seemed to beckon him into understanding. Though he could not. Grabbing both her hands into his, eyes near frantically roaming her face, he took in the unbelievable beauty of dark skin, and pale eyes- a rare yet enticing combination - then brought them up like they were his own hands, burying his face into them as if that was the location in which his salvation lied. 


“Jinka…" he squinted because of the lights surrounding her, "Don’t try to cut in on this either, because you’re quite quick to protest. But understand, or at least to attempt,” he closed his eyes, “there are somethings that we humans just aren’t meant to see.”

 

~~~~~

As if all the world’s electricity went running through his body, Fakir wakes in a swift gasp, throwing his body upright like it is the most basic instinct possessed by man. He finds himself in the recuperating room of the his office, and realized that he had sent himself into a state of shock, and collapsed. 


Jinka. 


How could she be there?  


Her image races through his mind as the cruel reality was setting back . He stifles back more sobs, as a subtle awareness kicks in, making him abruptly turn his head to find the curious eyes of his commander on him. 


“Fakir,” Commander Hibhan breathes. Fakir remains speechless, for exactly what could he say? Seeing Fakir’s unresponsiveness, Hibhan carries on himself. “Fakir, you needn’t be ashamed was what transpired today. I’m terrible sorry for your loss.”


“I thought she was dead years ago, Commander,” Hibhan raises an eyebrow, and suddenly realizes how little he questions the personal life of his best platoon leader.


“Please explain, Fakir”. He gathers himself, and begins. 



“When the Detoxification process was first being undergone, she spoke to me of her consideration to undergo it herself. I forbade her. Though, one night 5 years later, she left me note saying that she was going to do it, and if I came to my senses, then I would too.

He paused briefly and continued, “While I knew that she’d never return to me, I didn’t imagine that it’d be like that. I imagined that she’d return to me a completely new woman- a woman that was touched by divinity. But when she hadn’t returned home, I went to the detoxification center myself- my status thankfully granting me sufficient access. When I reached the administrator of the process, they told me that I had to detach myself from her. They told me ‘She belongs to divinity now’. They then continued to tell me that all who undergo the process can no longer go back to their past lives, for their existence too great for us mortal humans...so I accepted my fate and her fate and carried on living.”


Hibhan looking pityingly at Fakir, “But why did you then assume death?”


He coldly replied, “She was then a part of another world where she could no longer have any relation to me- seems an awful lot like death. But why would her body show up in an abandoned center? If she was so unreachable in this world now?” he suddenly gasps in horror at his own correctness. “I told her that process was a fraud! And they killed her-!”


“Is no fraud, Fakir. Pull yourself together and listen to me,” he cut in sternly, “The Detoxifying process is not for everyone, Fakir, and that is what they don’t tell you. It is held to the utmost esteem, for they advertise is as the ever attainable, and accessible passage to divinity. Well let me tell you this, it kills. The majority of people who go in for detoxification do not leave detoxified- in fact they don’t leave at all. Those who are detoxified, are no longer human, because they have the capacity for divinity.” He sighs deeply. “And that community center was home to one of the first tests for Detoxification. That machine that Askra spoke of to me was probably one the earlier, yet faulty models.”


Fakir sits silently, unsure of what to say. The multitude of events is currently to much for him to handle, making him groan in sheer frustration. Hibhan suddenly stands, making Fakir jump.


“I’ll let you sit on all of this,” his says with his voice growing smaller as the door closes behind him.


Fakir watches the door close, and swears that the light in the room in suddenly duller with his commander’s absence.


~~~~~~


With the days passed him by, Fakir couldn't bring himself to move. He isn’t sure how long he’s stayed in the same bed, in the same clothes. He isn’t aware of the foul stench that he’s emitting, nor the extreme overgrowth in hair and fingernails.  However, since the discovery of Jinka, he hasn’t moved from that spot, only accepting a daily meal and headquarters status from his platoon or Hibhan. Hibhan the platoon had excused him, and decided that it were best for him to stay out of the work, and more importantly, the public, until he came to his senses. Though curiously, Hibhan’s seems to light up room in way that no one else can. 


During these hours of complete thought, Fakir began to hear things. He had began to hear the hallway murmurs, ignorantly praising those who underwent detoxification, purifying themselves. He heard someone say, "I wish I could get detoxified…how grand would it be to see the world as if we were all gods ourselves?". He muttered that such a right belonged to whatever god there was, not us. He then heard things that haunted his dreams. He heard Jinka first whispering softly in his, then screaming terribly only seconds later. He heard the voices of men chanting. He heard the city collapsing. But somehow, worst of all, he heard the voices come together in unison saying, “Hail and behold the light! Seek the truth! Relinquish the self in search of one’s true being!” He screamed several times himself, screaming from his crazed self, and screaming to be away from it all.


Now he still sits upright, motionless, staring into the strange light rolling across the room. He wonders, where did that light come from? He cocks his head to the side curiously, and decides to stand and follow it. He falls at first, seeing as though he hasn’t stood in quite some time, but then stands and continues to follow the rolling light. It carries him outside of his office and down the stairs. Then outside of the building. The into the city plastered in fake terrace. It follows a road that spirals downward into habitats of the grim faced. Past the center of detoxification that seems to be brighter than usual. It light rolls all the way down to a grim building which mold covers its corners and drippings fall from the ceilings. It travels up a level and down a hall where the room gradually increase in size. It rolls into the last room, and hits a piece of machinery with a ting


“Oh look, I’m back here” he says almost absentmindedly. “I followed the light!” He nearly screams. He circles the ruinous machine and running calloused fingers around its metal frame. Suddenly, he hits a a button, sending a colossal light into the ceiling. His eyes widen in amazement, and even excitement, as his most primal instincts stir inside of him, beckoning him to touch the light. He realized that the truth was in front of him. His truth self could be found in the light.


Hail and behold the light...Seek the truth... Relinquish the self in search of one’s true being” he mumbles unknowingly and he plunges himself forward.

Q4 globalization benchmark Dcordivari

​Final project link 

Time line

Project statement:


   I chose to use this as my topic because its something that I have been around my entire life. Cigarettes are extremely popular from youth all the way to the elderly. As someone who has smoked cigarettes plenty of times, but has never fallen victim to their addictive qualities I have always had a very large indifference with cigarettes and never quite could understand them. I have always been interested in the idea of people spending so much money on something like this and they have been around for decades, never really losing their popularity despite plenty of people fighting against them. Not only are cigarettes extremely popular and present in todays economy, but also in the media. From commercials to movies cigarettes are widely used and talked about.


   Cigarettes addictiveness has kept people spending tons of money just to get their fix. Some people would refer to this as a “legal drug” and in reality this is true. When it comes to globalization and the economy cigarettes are a worldwide favorite. Cigarettes were traded heavily by the europeans and when the industrial revolution arrived they became even more popular. This lasted for a long time where plenty of people were constantly smoking, until the 1900s arrived with more scientific advances that taught people about the dangerous qualities of cigarettes, however this was not enough to end the era of cigarettes and they are still sold and used everywhere to this day.


   Cigarettes also made it into the music industry. Widely song about in all genres of music. Cigarettes are known as a national symbol for coolness and people associated with being cool usually smoke cigarettes whether its characters in film or actual celebrities all the way to your local high school cool kids and frat boys.

   This site has a good amount of information for the more history related aspects of Tobacco which can help me trace globalization to some of its earlier days. I will be able to get some of the details from its launch into the trade.


 I chose these two advertisements because they show a great example about how the difference in scientific research on cigarettes was changed over time and discovered to be unhealthy and no longer promoted by doctors.

This song is a perfect example of cigarettes and their influence on todays modern media and youth. The music is listened to all over and it talks a lot about cigarettes in a metaphor for rapping, but also talks about how cigarettes are an example for coolness.

This site gets into the global profits from tobacco and cigarette sales as well as the death rates that have followed these purchases which gets into two completely separate subjects both branching from the same thing.

I wasn’t sure how to format this link, but i plan to use this as an example for the distribution of tobacco as well as tobacco accessories which are also something that overwhelms the economy.


I chose this picture because it shows the simplicity and expense of modern day tobacco sales and how people can not only get them easily, but they are quite expensive for their mass abundance.

This is the official facebook page for a major cigarette company that makes billions off of their cigarettes. This is where they update their customers and fan database in social media. I plan to use this as an example of the advertising that most of todays youth is exposed to.

This is a facebook forum for a discussion on anti cigarettes and an attempt to talk about why cigarettes should be gotten rid of. Our one air wants people to realize that smoking is dangerous, but second hand smoke can be just as bad if not worse.

This tumblr claims to not condone the act of smoking, but shows plenty of pro smoking pictures and constantly post pictures of different smoking acts. This is a sort of snapshot into some of the social media that is primarily used by teens.
