"Digital-Nation" review by Tyreek Spedwell

In class we watched a show named Digital-Nation. In this show it teached us the positives and negatives of the internet. I found interesting that many people meet on an online game. I will keep my family safe online by warning them about the negative affects of the internet because I don't want to get into trouble. I would do the same to other parents who don't know any of these affects.

#8Reflection:Cynthia To

 The TV show I watched class was Digital's Nation.What was this show about? This show was about what Teenage do on the internet and how much they use the internet and how that effect their learning. The most memorable thing to me about this video was that in MIT students multi-tasks do work and how that effect their learning and that in South Korea kids are on the computers 24/7 and not talking to their family. Also, that when you are on the internet 24/7 can cause death and a trip to the doctors. It is important to watch shows like these because so we can learn not to do the same mistake and do right on the internet. If my future safe online I would tell them bad things about the internet that they shouldn't do.  It is important to talk with my family about internet safety because they don't have to do that same mistake. The advice I would give to my parents that don't know their children safe online about the long and short term and the bad things about that they shouldn't do.

    U2 - #8 Lauren Nicolella

    We watched tv show Digitalnation, and it was about how multi-tasking is a myth and general information about the internet. The most memorable thing to me from this show was the multi-tasking, because I really realized how it doesn't work and I do work much faster if I don't attempt to do as, as it was said that it slows you down. It is important to watch shows like these because as the internet is becoming a normal thing occurring as we are growing up, it is really good to be informed about what you are getting yourself into. I will be able to keep my future family safe online by having my kids aware of how to act online if they were to be using programs that involve people from around the world, and low-key monitor what they are doing and make sure they are not be affected or affecting any one else. It is important to talk to my family about internet safety because my parents probably wouldn't know what some things means and to have them aware and safe. What I can tell parents that don't know how to keep their children safe online is monitor if anything major is happening between their kid and school, being connected to online activity.

    U2 #8 Reflection: Christina Santana

    The Tv Show we watched in class was Front-line's Digital Nation. This show was about online safety and the effects that the internet has on the kids of our generation. The most memorable thing about this show was the kids that they showed in it. This was memorable because the all suffered from many different issue and the main cause of those issues was the internet. It is important to watch shows like this because it shows kids the effect that the internet could have on them if they are not safe online, and it also is a way of “scaring them straight”. I will keep my family safe by discussing rules that we would all follow when using the internet. I will also watch videos with them about online safety, such as this one. It is important to talk with your family about internet safety because it will help prevent anything bad from happening to you or any of your family members. I would suggest that they check their kids social media accounts occasionally and that they establish a relationship built on trust with their kids. This will help keep us all safe from any harm they could come from the internet.

    Birdemic: Shock and Terror

    James Nguyen’s breakout exercise in cinematic failure, Birdemic, was a success on all fronts. Its unique blend of Hitchcockian terror and Al Gore-ian philosophy is unprecedented and remains unsurpassed. It unfortunately fails the Mako Mori test as there are no female characters that have independent character arcs, but, there are no character arcs in the movie at all, so it’s at least equal in this regard. Surprisingly, though, it passes the Bechdel Test; two named women talk to each other about something other than a man: going pee. Don’t let this fool you, though. The main male character works as a high-profile salesman whereas the main female character works as a model. The women are much more likely to be nude at any given time than the men are. So, to ensure equality in sexuality, I have developed a new test that is specifically designed for such topics.


    For every sexually posed female, there must be at least one equally sexually posed male. For as long as the female is in underwear or is nude, the male must be equally in underwear or nude.

    Birdemic, naturally, does not pass this test. It wouldn’t necessarily be better or worse if it passed the test, because it exists in such a state of perfection that no minor overhaul could change it. It does make me think that other, more judge-able movies should be held to such a standard.

    Anyway, I highly recommend this movie.

    Feminist Film Review


    The Movie I Watched: Clueless

    The Bechdel Test: In order to pass the Bechdel Test, the movie needs to 1) have two female characters, that 2) talk to each other, 3) about things other than men. In Clueless, there were many female characters. Specifically, there were three main female characters: Cher, Dionne, and Tai. They all interacted many times. While some of their conversations were about boys, there were also many conversations that were not. Some of the other topics included school, working out, and make-overs.

    The Ari Test: The movie does technically pass the Bechdel Test, but I do not think that shows women in a very intelligent light. Most of the character’s conversations were about make-up, boys, shopping, or clothes. In my opinion, the movie played into a lot of stereotypes about girls. If I made a feminist test for a movie it would make sure that there had to be a woman in an intelligent role. Here are the rules for my test:

    • Has at least two women in leading roles

    • Has a woman in an “intelligent” role

    • The women cannot depend on men for everything.

    Based on this test, Clueless would not pass because all of the female characters aren’t very smart. Even the female teacher is kind of oblivious.

    Tv Show reflection- Brendan Hall

    The shows we watched were Digital Nation and growing up online. They were about families who were affected by the internet in someway, most of them were negative. The memorable part in the show was the kid who found out how to hang himself online and committed suicide shortly after.  It is important to watch shows like this because you get a better understanding for how to use the internet in a good way. I will keep m future family safe by not letting my children get social media until a certain age. It is important to talk about internet safety so my child who may have confidence issues won't get bullied online and want to kill themselves. I would tell them not to meet strangers from online.

    Beats Of The Southern Wild


    “Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in the Bathtub, a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink's tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe; for a time when he's no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack, temperatures rise, and the ice caps melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. With the waters rising, the aurochs coming, and Wink's health fading, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.” -- Written by Sundance Film Festival

    The Mako Mori test:

    a) At least one female character



    b) Who gets her own narrative arc

    She is the main character and the movie is about her.

    c) That is not about supporting a man's story.

    Her father more so supports her story arc and all the people around support her story arc as well being as though she is the main chacher.

    My Film test review

    My film test review will be called … It will have more than one person of color, that has their own plot line and is not looked at as the token black friend or token ethnic friend. They are not to be overly loud and deemed angry at the world. I want them to be curious about the world and live in a loving community. They will not act as the stereotypes that are placed on them by the world.

    Personal Essay

    Bartle is a character in a book called “The Things they Carried,” a book that I wouldn’t read for another 6 years. One event in the story was him having to shoot up a car even though he didn’t want to. Not to compare my actions to shooting up a car, or anything else for that matter, but to me, it conflicted my “morals” in a similar way that the event conflicted his.

    It is always nice waking up at ten in the morning. I would have been late for school if it wasn’t for winter vacation. I was in the 4th or 5th grade. We were going to New York for Christmas, I couldn’t wait for it. It was originally meant to be a surprise, but I figured it out a few days before. I had been in New York, but never really as a vacation. Everything was already packed, I already knew what I wanted to do when we got there, I was just happy to get away from normal life for awhile. I could have had a nice vacation, but I hated my teachers and they hated me. For my Christmas and going away gift from them to me, they decided it would be best to give me a pink slip. It didn’t mean that I was fired from school, it was there way of basically saying “You should know better, give this to your parents.” I was always a straight A student. I always did my homework and always did the best on tests. I just didn’t like them and they knew it. I don’t know why they would give me a pink slip, they always did it, but I wasn’t sure why.

    We left for New York on a train, it took years to get there, but somehow we made it there just before noon. We got off the train, walked up a lot of steps, and then we were in Grand Central Station in New York. It was annoying, everybody was walking like they were late, the unintentional pushing and shoving that they were probably use to. It would have been fun to start kicking people in the shins, but that wouldn’t have helped anyone. We walked outside of the station, it was supposed to be cold, but somehow I felt the warmth of everyone walking by, it was weird. I didn’t know where we were going, nobody really told me, but it was really nice to look at all the tall buildings. We walked around for awhile, then we got to our hotel that we were staying in. It was in Time Square, from our room, we got to see the giant displays from the windows. We weren’t there for long though, we left out later to get dinner. My sister always made things interesting, because of her allergies, we usually had to do some extra searching to make sure that her need were accommodated. It wasn’t a bad thing though, and the search turned into an I-Spy game through the crowd to find a place she could eat at. After we found food for her, we went to Roxy’s. I had a burger (this was back before my vegetarian days) and then an oreo cheesecake. After that we walked some, we went to the Nintendo Store and the M&M store. We got back to our hotel at around 9, we unpacked and then went to sleep.

    I never actually went to sleep though, I just stayed up and watched the repeating commercials flashing on the giant screens outside the window. The fact that I had a pink slip was getting to me for some reason. It wasn’t rare for me, they were always stapled into my journal so I couldn’t forget. It’s just that in this instance, I had hid it under my bed, I didn’t really expect anyone would see it in my room, no one was home. This is an event similar to what Bartle went through. A person might say “You didn’t have to hide it.” But I did, it’s not that I wanted to just ignore it or maybe I did, and I had eventually told her after vacation, I just wanted to to leave that back and home for when we came back. I had brought my Nintendo, but I never played it, knowing that I probably shouldn’t. To me, it was interesting how much I was thinking about it, but I normally think a lot. I think that it was more of the feeling of not telling my mom. If I would have told her before or during our vacation, everything would have been different.
