I had some trouble with the clear object drawing. It didn't really understand how to "shade" and make the object more 3D like. I started with covering the entire paper with the black charcoal and then faded the color to a lighter grey by taking a paper towel and lightly brushing the canvas. Next I proceeded to draw the outer edges of the vase. I tried my best to shade the picture to make it "pop" a little more, but I don't think I did a good enough job.
Copy A Master
I saw the picture on google images and it immediately caught my attention. I always had a fascination with outer space and when I was little I used to go to the library to read books about the behemoth objects that filled our outer atmosphere. I started with drawing lightly the outer shapes of the planets which I would later fill in with colors. With the help of my friends Shi and Toni, I was able to make recreate the image to the best of my abilities.
I drew this as a portrait to Jasmine. In the beginning it was suppose to be of Sam Boyd, but I kept having to start over. I drew Jasmine as I saw her and the best way I could. Her shoulders I drew broad to represent her inner and outer strength which she shows everyday. I drew her waist slim and her butt big wide because it is.
I drew the bowl the best I could. I didn't really know how to make my drawing pop out like the artist's picture that he drew on the monitor. The shading aspect is also something that I need to work on as well. I think I did ok but I want to practice on making my pictures seem more realistic.
This has been a very interesting benchmark. This has been the most difficult to process to me and I still feel like I am not getting the assignment. Creating primary source docs for my project has been confusing me until today. Finding existing primary source documents were easy for me since the earliest date of my project is in the late 60's. I decided to pick Huey Newton as my point of divergence because I not only wanted to think of a different outcome, but dive into the information and history associated with him. I liked that we had the ability to choose our own Point of Divergence because it helped us be more creative and original. The challenging part for me was when I had to put all my information into one easy to follow presentation. I decided to use Prezi because it was visually pleasing and adds "pop" to a project. It is amazing to see how one individual action can impact the outcome of a nation. I could of improved my project by adding more created documents and going in-depth on the present day outcome of my Point of Divergence. If I had to do it over I would change the time it took me to complete this assignment. This was the first time I was a little concerned about getting my assignment completed on time.

When a xylophone it hits it vibrates and displaces the air molecules. There is a very transfer of energy as the xylophone switches from potential to kinetic energy. When sound waves collide they either bounce(reflect) or bend(refract). To change the pitch of a xylophone you change the size and density of the bars(keys).
I plan to make my xylophone out of copper or pvc pipe. Which ever produces the better sound and can be sustained. I will play my instrument like everyone else does with this type of instrument; a mallet.
The general shape of a xylophone is a rectangle. To change the not of a xylophone, you have to hit a different note on the xylophone with a mallet. You can alter the sound by altering the density of the individual notes. I've noticed that different dimensions of bars give off different sound. So this can tie end to density and surface area having something to do with what produces certain certain waves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHP5xjBP-9I (This is a link that shows a xylophone being played).
Our group was really easy to work with. Everyone was ready to take on the task. Everyone carried there weight.
What didn't go well?
We had to start the project over because we didn't have the requirements for the infographic. I mean all the information I found is useful, but the we had to focus more on the government aspect and the aftermath.
What would you do differently next time?
I would reread what the assignment again. My group went off track with what the Ms. Laufenburg asked of us. I would be more visual because I don't think we followed the directions still even though we started.

We chose Woman In Combat because we felt that woman often go unrecognized. Its a man orientated military system and we wanted to show the courages lives of women in combat. We wanted to represent that in a video/documentary because it would of been uninteresting if done with a podcast. We made a 5 minute video to show women and combat, because we didn't want to make it too long. The only problem we had was compiling all the information. We didn't know where to get some primary sources from. The thing that went well is the video. It was easy putting the video together once we had the information. The things I would do differently is the way we conducted data. I would have liked to find an actual women who served in the military. If we were to redo it that would be one of the first things I would do. I've learned that women had major impacts in the military. Women in armed forces are women too, and have lives that don't just restrict them into a certain category.
Now the only way way to get out of this shithole is to walk with the Man up Stairs.
Killing is some bs man , we all need love, im talkin reaaaallll love !
