My new Slide

I got various tips on making my new slide. I was told to make the focus on one photo, so I combined 3 photos into 1. I made my slide more visual, like the zen website said by making the color of a letter or number match the color of my background. I made text big and added visual clues. I had many other versions and I believe this is the most accurate according to the zen website.

The Insanity Defense & You

During This Project, I interviewed three people on what they know about the Insanity Defense, these are there responses. 

THESE INTERVIEWS DO NOT SHOW MY PERSONAL STANCE ON THE ISSUE, THESE ARE OTHERS OPINIONS, NOT MY OWN.

Interview 1# Rachel

Age: 19




Q: What do you know about the insanity defense as it is used in law ?


A: I don’t know much about out it other than the fact it’s used for people to not be held responsible for their actions and basically get off free for crime.



Q: What was your first time seeing something pertaining to the insanity defense ?


A: The first time I saw someone use the insanity defense and get acquitted was in the aurora murders in colorado. The guy who shot up the theater with that machine gun during the dark knight.



Q: What is your overall take on the insanity defense ? Is a viable option and who do you think are the people who get off using it the most ?


A: I believe that the defense is a viable option depending on how you look at it. For example, I think that it can be used in some cases when the personally is generally thought of and seen as criminally insane. When they have something extremely wrong with them such as really, REALLY bad schizophrenia or multiple personality disorders they cannot be fully held responsible for their actions because they aren’t truly the ones making them. As it is portrayed in the media, “Only white people are criminally insane”. While it is true that most people who use this pled successfully, at least from what i’ve seen are white it’s not race exclusive. Mental illness can and affect other races and it does. So putting as a stigma for a specific race is wrong.




Interview 2# Donna

Age 48


Q: What do you know about the insanity defense as it is used in law ?


A: I’ve not heard much about it other than the fact that crazy people use it to get off on trials and things like that.


Q: What was your first time seeing something pertaining to the insanity defense ?


A: I mean, It’s been around forever from what i’ve seen. The first real time I remember it being in the news was with the “Son Of Sam” case in the late 70’s/ early 80’s. The case was basically about a guy who went around a killed people in New York. He said he did it because the neighborhood dog told him to.



Q: What is your overall take on the insanity defense ? Is a viable option and who do you think are the people who get off using it the most ?


A: I honestly don’t think the insanity defense is a viable reason. I’ve known people who have gone to trial for some horrible things and tried to cop an insanity plea just to get out and stay in the cuckoo’s nest. While I think that it used to be able to be used back in the day I don’t think it’s really that bad now. People will manipulate a jury's feelings try and get off. You mostly see white people using it as a way of getting off. Because for some odd reason, being white and insane is more believable than being black and unarmed for example. I honestly think you are in control of your actions and while there may be outside influences working on your mind. You as a person ultimately make the choice on what YOU do. Not some dog voice or someone making you think that. You hit that person or kill them not the voice.



Interview 3# Josh:

Age: 32


Q: What do you know about the insanity defense as it is used in law ?


A: I’ve only heard of it really in cases with really jacked up people. Like Jeffrey Dahmer or John Du Pont. In all honesty I should know more about it since my father was a lawyer.



Q: What was your first time seeing something pertaining to the insanity defense ?


A: My first time really seeing it was with the Jeffrey Dahmer case back in 92. My dad explained to me that something was wrong with Mr. Dahmer but not exactly what. Since I was young, I think he tried to shield me from what was really going on and what he really was. A sick and psychotic man that really needed a lot of help.


Q: What is your overall take on the insanity defense ? Is a viable option and who do you think are the people who get off using it the most ?


A: Overall I think the defense is overused in society today. Many people now a days see it as an easy cop out to not go to jail. Or as many people of color see it, the way that extremely jacked up white people don’t go to jail. Because their “Insane”. Everyone has problems, I am not an exception to that, neither are you or anyone really. But everyone can find ways to control these urges. No one is just born to kill, you may be born a little messed up but not enough to where you can blame “the voices” or someone else. You do actions of your own accord and I think the media portrays the defense in a bad light considering they show it as only rich people being insane. Knowing how the defense works I’m not going to say it’s a bad thing that should be taken out of courts completely. I just believe that it should only be used under severe circumstance.


Conclusion:

Based upon these interviews the general public is just what I thought they would be regarding the insanity defense. While some see it as a blessing others see it as a curse since at least in today’s society it’s misused greatly. After learning through the neuroscience unit that people are not always aware of and in tune with their actions I feel as though mental health is extremely overlooked. Just as person gets care for their physical wounds their mental ones should be taken care of with just as much priority. I think that neuroscience is something extreme

Why is Net Neutrality important for teens to know about? Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because it teaches teens the basics of the internet. It teaches them more than what they know or what they think they know. Without net neutrality the internet would basically be a mess. Net neutrality is our internet’s “savior”.

Net neutrality controls ISPs. ISPs are middle mans and without net neutrality they wouldn't be fair and equitable. An ISP is a middle man because it receives the interweb, and then sells it at high prices to the consumers. It also limits the speed and access. You have to pay more money to get faster speeds, and access to more websites.

Also, without net neutrality, ISPs would be able to create new plans to charge customers more for access and services. This affects us because it would be harder for us to interact online. The internet can become similar to the cable television. Gatekeepers control what we can and get to watch. This unproductive use of the internet may destroy its quality.

Net Nuetrality

Net Neutrality is ¨the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.¨ Net Neutrality is crucial to keeping the pricing of online communication down. Just because I have dish, doesn’t give people who have comcast the right to faster internet and more content. Not only that the FCC had created their own loopholes so companies such as Netflix can make under the table deals with service providers for faster internet which is ultimately illegal. The internet as a utility would hurt the providers, because it would restrict them to a certain set of rules to the internet, making the internet market will become uncompetetive.

After learning about Net Neutrality, I have realized how important the internet and the digital world are to us, it has always been there in the back of my mind, but I cannot imagine my life without it. To give someone complete control of something so important to me and billions of other people seems not only unfair, but unjust. If the world shares data, who gets the right to have more? If net neutrality goes down the drain than we will have to keep paying more and more for something that deserves to be ours, a given right.

I feel that net neutrality is a matter that needs more attention, before our class on it, I had no idea that our internet speed was being compromised. Another problem with Net Neutrality is that average people benefit from the equality of speed and all available content, but big companies are at a disadvantage, so it makes sense that they are all for inequality. Net Neutrality is a major part of our lives, especially generation so we have to be very involved with this problem.

Net Neutrality

Untitled presentation
1. Net Neutrality is important for teens to understand and learn about because the FCC are the
ones that basically the ones that dictate your life on the internet. Teens need to be aware that
when they are logged onto the internet it is not private. With reading the article and the
discussions in class there is a need that teens and anyone in general needs to understand their
standing and the standing of their internet.

https://star.txstate.edu/node/2142

2. Google have spoken out a while ago about Net Neutrality. They were commenting on how a
large amount of internet providers slow down and speed up the internet that you are able to get.
Google stated ¨If Internet access providers can block some services and cut special deals that
prioritize some companies’ content over others, that would threaten the innovation that makes
the Internet awesome,” adding “No Internet access provider should block or degrade Internet
traffic, nor should they sell ‘fast lanes’ that prioritize particular Internet services over others.” I
think that internet providers should stick to their jobs and provide customers internet. I also
agree with what Google stated about blocking things from the internet would threaten the
awesomeness of the internet.

http://nobullying.com/net­neutrality/

3. Many of the ISPs say that they feel like they have the right to control and block things that are
on the internet. They say that since other countries are able to censor sites; they want to do the
same and block sites that can threaten their business. Also if they do not have net neutrality
they will only be able to block sites that they feel like that are competion towards the company.
The site where I was able to provide this insight also said that both parties have valid opinions
that they both have to consider.

NET NEUTRALITY - Java Miller

Today internet users have open internet, which gives them the ability to access any resource. There is this big debate on whether net neutrality should be required by law. ¨Net neutrality is the principle that internet service providers and governments should treat all data on the internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user, content, site, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication.¨ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_neutrality ) If net neutrality actually happens, this means that everyone with pay the same amount for the same amount of data. Also, this means that ISP’s will be able to restrict you from some websites or important information.

Some teens may not know about net neutrality, but it affects us the most.  For instance, We may not be able to access websites that we use on a regular like facebook or twitter. Since we are the next generation, when we get older we may have net neutrality as a new law. Teens rely on the internet so much that without certain access, It can cause many problems. We need to be aware of the rules that are involved in using the internet.

Net Neutrality will cause so many problems. For instance, it isn’t fair to people who pay a lot to get good internet because now they have to pay the same for the same quality of internet. ¨ If we all want to protect universal access to the communications networks that we all depend on to connect with ideas, information, and each other, then we must stand up for our rights to connect and communicate.¨ (http://www.redditblog.com/2014/05/only-you-can-protect-net-neutrality_13.html) The ISP shouldn’t have a say in what we use on the internet is we pay for it; This is abusing their power. People who don’t believe in net neutrality should take a stand to put a stop to this decision.

The main change I made to this slide was changing the backround of it to something I think is a bit less distracting, as that seemed to be the biggest complaint. 
Also the text was spaced a bit more and made a bit bright so it was easier to read.
I made these changes because they were the most commented on during my review. 

Net Neutrality // Chernowski


First off, what is net neutrality? Net neutrality is the principle that all internet service providers should treat data without legal bias. The term was developed by Columbia media law professor Tim Wu. Net neutrality is seen as an important component of an open internet. Policies which favor this outcome allow users of the internet to communicate and conduct business without barriers including interference from a third party. This is how our internet has been working for several years.

Well if this is how it is working, what is important about it? Recently, the concept of treating Internet content equally has been challenged. This erupted when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a proposal that would provide Internet “fast lanes” for larger companies that can afford to pay a higher fee. This means smaller companies cannot afford equal treatment in terms of speeds where the content reaches the consumer. Currently Congress and the FCC are still debating about it.

Why is this important for teens? Well if Net Neutrality is demolished that means certain content might restricted to some individuals. Teens will be limited to what they see and this can prevent them from seeing the whole picture. Information will even be limited for school and education purposes, limiting the students greatly in their studies. The internet should be a privilege and not a product for companies to sell off.

Kaamil Jones Net Neutrality

I think net neutrality is important for teens to know because we are the future. I think the internet is becoming more and more futuristic. I think we are gonna be the ones affected by what happens with Net Neutrality. I also think we should know about this because its about equality and thats a big part of life and a huge topic.

Net neutrality is really important because if net neutrality wasn’t a thing we would all be treated unfairly. The ISPs would be able to scheme us teens and have us pay more for services. By them doing this it would make online communicating much harder. This a problem because us teen do most of our communicating online. Communicating online has just become a way of life.

Teens should know about net neutrality because if we didn’t our future would be completely controlled by companies. Our world would be controlled by companies because technology and the internet is what we all depend on. Teens especially like me should know about net neutrality because thats online is where I turn in and do almost all my work. So that means net neutrality affects my education.

Net Neutrality: Why is it important for teens to know about?

Net neutrality describes the state when everyone, who can access the internet, is open to the same material and content as other internet users. The term was first coined by Columbia University media law professor Tim Wu in 2003. This term is imperative for teens to be knowledgeable about because most teens are heavily-dependent on the internet. As the world advances, textbooks are being replaced with e-books and a myriad of innovative new ways of acquiring information is being developed. Moreover, the internet is a salient influence in the lives of most teens. They use it to complete homework and further explore subjects that they find interesting. Net neutrality allows them to have access to more information, so that they can form their own personal opinions and grow academically.


Moreover, if certain students and teens are limited to certain information, it could prevent them from becoming individualized character. For instance, if one never knows the different aspects and facets concerning a topic, they might find it harder to form opinions on that subject due to ignorance. Furthermore, this topic is also important to teens because it decreases the amount of information students can use for projects and assignments related to school. Some teens are not even aware of this term, when in fact it is something that affects them.The internet is a wonderful, complex tool and students need to be able to have access to all the possibilities is provides in order to be successful.



At last, teens should also care about net neutrality because it affects them in quite some ways. It prevents them from visiting some websites others may have access to. It limits the amount of information they can reach via internet for school purposes. There are surely more ways that net neutrality affects teen; however, some teens remain oblivious to the concept. It is important for teens to know about because they are the future of society and they need to be able to obtain the necessary resources needed to ameliorate the world they live in.

Net Neutrality

Untitled presentation

Net Neutrality is important for teens to know about because it gives us equal internet access for all users. Most users on the internet is in fact teenagers. All teenagers want all rights on the internet and net neutrality gives us these rights. Teenagers should be happy there is a net neutrality plan to give them access to things like social networking with peers and more. Net Neutrality helps us teens tremendously.


In the world today, teenagers use the internet all the time. I use the internet everyday myself for school work. So does everyone in my school and a lot of others. We all individually need access and rights on the internet to get work done and net neutrality contributes to giving us them fair rights and equality. It makes work easier. There is no discrimination involved in net neutrality. Everyone has the same rights at any time.


ISPs(internet service providers) are planning to give internet users unlimited content. This is just to make more profit for the organization. The more people using the internet, the more ISP make. So for them, it’s about satisfying the customers. If all teenagers can have unlimited content, they will always be on the internet. Even more than now. Again, which would make more money for the ISPs organization. The net neutrality contributes to this by making sure all the users have equal internet rights, so everyone will stay using the internet and internet service providers.




Net Neutrality & Teens

Yo Dawg- Net Neutrality

Net neutrality is basically the principle of an open internet, in which all data is treated equally, being sent and being received, concerning what you have access to and the speed it is accessed (actual internet connection issues based on location or other variables aside). The thing is, though, that having net neutrality in place means that ISPs (Internet Service Providers) cannot take in more revenue by charging users for access to certain sites or faster speeds whilst using them. Of course, this leaves them upset. Recently, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) have started to ease away from net neutrality, with certain policies being put in place and such, but it's not a complete change. Although, this doesn't mean it isn't possible to do so, and every teen should be aware of what would happen if there was.

Say, net neutrality wasn't in place anymore due to some FCC regulation and you're really bored today. So, you hop on the computer, search up on Netflix and...waiting. ¨That's strange,¨ you'd think, ¨This never happened before...¨ Suddenly, a window pops up on the screen trying to convince you to pay for Comcast's new ¨fast lane¨ internet service. ¨Well, my internet is pretty slow...¨ So, you go ahead and pay for the ¨fast lane,¨ hoping it'd help you out. ¨Hey,¨ you'd think, ¨This internet connection is exactly the same as it was before the FCC's new regulations!¨

Huh, it makes it seem as if ISPs are using their control over your internet in order to make a quick buck... If net neutrality is left behind, then that means companies limiting your connection and access to certain sites based on either how much you pay them or how much that particular site's owner pays them. They believe that since it takes too much money to have giant piles of information piling in from huge streaming sites like Netflix, we should pay for it, even considering that people are paying for internet in the first place! And I know y'all teenagers love your Netflix, so this is serious business. This is a matter of the freedom of the internet and how you experience it, so it's important for all teens who regularly use the internet to truly understand the idea of net neutrality and what's up with it.

Net Neutrality- Sok

It is essential for teens to know about net neutrality because we are using the internet all the time. It is needed for school, entertainment, convenience, communication, and eventually for our jobs. If we are constantly using it, we need to understand it and be aware of the rules that are involved. Once we understand it and know the rules that are involved with the internet, we are able to use it effectively without causing any harm. In addition to that, being aware of rules related to the internet allows us to take a stand for what we believe in when the government makes decisions about one of the fundamental rules of the internet called net neutrality.

Everyone who pays to receive internet can all agree that net neutrality must not be taken away. Net neutrality preserves our rights to an open internet where ISPs are not able to control the content that we stream in any way. The internet would no longer be a happy place without net neutrality if our accessibility of data is being influenced. Like in the image that I attached, some content will take forever to load and some will not even load at all if the ISPs decide to block it. I cannot imagine the fustration of being unable to access any website I want at the same speed as everyone else.

As Americans, we are ensured the freedom of speech. Banning net neutrality interferes with this law. For example, if I made a comment on a website and the ISP that I pay monthly for does not like this comment I have made, they have the power to block it to prevent me from saying further comments if net neutrality was not enforced. People would soon feel supressed to say what they want to say because ISPs are able to censor the information that we request and share. Therefore, if net neutrality is not advocated, our freedom of speech on the internet will be provoked also.

Technology Slide
On this slide, I learned the different fonts for my lettering on this slide. One thing I did differently on this slide is making sure I have a good contrast in color between my lettering and background. I used quotes on my slide to make the message being sent easier to understand for my audience and viewers. I made some of these changes to this slide because of feedback from my classmates on my first slide. So, I wanted to make sure I focus on the things I could improve on and make it better on my second slide.
