Dave Van de Mark: “There was a time (during the life of my first big printers—an Epson 7600 and later a Canon ipF8000—that just endlessly, it seemed, I played with different papers. The first type I quickly eliminated were the RC. Just didn’t like them and they seemed less ‘environmental’ to me.”Since I was making large prints and mounting them on gator board and not covering them up with anything—no sprays, no glass or acrylic—I needed to find a smooth, durable and non-reflective paper and did so with Innova FibaPrint ultra smooth white matte 280gm. I love it and stopped hunting.”For smaller ‘bin’ prints—sold matted and inside a protective sleeve—I just love the Canson Baryta Photographique paper in roll and 13×19″ and 17×22” sizes. Again, I have quit hunting!”Using these papers in a well-profiled setup with my new Canon ipF6400 printer, I’m living in heaven, with what seems to be a very, very good match from what I see on monitor to a finished print. The Innova matte paper has a surprisingly high contrast and tonal range and can be ‘snappy’ just like glossier papers.”I will be the first to admit that, by not looking further, I may be missing a ‘gem.’ But I doubt any new stuff out there is worlds better than what makes me perfectly happy right now.”Mike Leinhausr: “I’ve tried a few of papers and have come to really like the Canson Baryta Photographique and Platine Fibre Rag. I printed with Agfa Portriga Rapid in the darkroom for years and have looked for something digital that would cross over—not much luck—but now use the Platine for 90% of what I do. Using an Epson R3000 and seems to do a decent job with this combination.”Ken Bennett: “I mostly print on luster paper, but I’ve had good results with the Epson Exhibition Fiber when I want to spend the big bucks. 🙂 “Kenneth Tanaka: “Of course there is no such thing as a ‘best’ printer paper. The printing world has evolved quickly to offer many excellent, and generally equivalent,…

Freedom writers

For my final exam I have chosen the movie “Freedom Writers”, starring Hilary Swank. This movie is based on a true story about a first year English teacher named Erin Gruwell, whom through many barriers, improves the lives of the students she teaches. Her students are freshman and sophomores at Woodrow Wilson High School, located in Long Beach, California, which is riddled with gang violence and racial tension. This was in 1994, after the LA riots had reached an all time high.
1. Management issues that occur during the movie start off during Erin’s initial meeting with the Department head of the school. She goes over with Erin the history of the school and how they had one of the highest scholastic records in the district before the school required the program of voluntary integration. She goes on to place blame on the students that have been underprivileged and sent to Woodrow Wilson for schooling. Administrators blame integration for the fact many of their “bright” students have left the district. Another issue is that the school feels that “these” kids can’t be taught. They have no respect for the school or property. Not just the administrators feel this way but some of the teachers as well. The next issue I observed was that when students entered to classroom, as Erin greeted them, they just glared at her. The students just came into the room being loud and noisy, moved their desks around to face one another grouping themselves into sections of race and talked above the teacher. Even when a fight breaks out in the classroom, Erin attempts to break it up and is unsuccessful. She has to get assistance from a security guard. Erin’s father expresses the next concern. During dinner with Erin and her husband, he does not like first of all that she is a teacher and second that she is teaching in an integrated school. He feels she is wasting her time with these students and the fact the school district could care less about the integrated students has him on…

In your response, cite the essay at least once using an in-text citation. (See this link for a good example of how to cite an article inside of an essay: Using one author in a parenthetical citation.) Also, create a works cited citation for the essay. (Hint: The citation is already done for you in the “Supplemental Reading List.” Replicate the listing in your post.) This should be in MLA style. Respond to students who chose articles different than your post. Please post a full and rich discussion.
With this forum, you are to discuss one (1) of the “Historical American Works” or one (1) of the “Historic Global Works” listed in the “Supplemental Readings” section of the course lessons. This discussion will help you prepare for your essay on one of these arguments due during the next section of this course (week three).In your discussion, state the purpose of the reading and cite the thesis statement (if applicable). If there is no explicit thesis, state the reading’s claim. Then, lay out the structure of the reading to the class, and let the class know if this structure is organized and logical (you may claim that it is not organized – it’s up to you). Let the reader know how this method of organization helps or does not help the author’s purpose. Then, discuss the style of writing – does the style help the author prove his/her point? Finally, study the introduction and conclusion of your chosen reading. Explain how the author ‘hooks’ the reader in, or, conversely, if the introduction is not strong, explain why. Discuss the conclusion of the essay as well, and point out its strengths and weaknesses. Please answer these questions fully in your response (use thoughtful sentences).Be careful with your essay choice. Most likely, you will want to use this work for your essay due next week. In addition, remember that the more effort you put into your discussion, the more prepared you will be to write your Critical Evaluation essay.

Summary of the article including citations
In the article Generation Matters it talks about the different characteristics and skills that each of the generations, traditionalists, baby boomers, generation X, and generation Y, have and their preferences for communication. Traditionalists were born in the years 1927-1945, people from this generation tend to prefer face-to-face communication or written memos and “they value hard work and thrift, are loyal employees and many have worked for a single firm over their entire career” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015). Baby Boomers were born in the years 1946-1964, people from this generation tend to communicate through meetings, emails, and over the phone. Baby boomers “tend to live for their jobs and will jump in whenever and wherever needed” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015), this is due to their dedication to their job and wanting to be involved. Generation X were born in the years 1965-1980, many from this generation communicate in an immediate and direct manner and prefer to communicate through emails, texts, or on their cellphones. People from generation X “are ambitious and hard working but mostly as individuals or entrepreneurs” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015), this may be due to their need to be independent. Generation Y was born in the years 1980-early 2000s, people in this generation prefer to communicate through texts, tweets, Facebook, FaceTime, and Instagram. With this generation having confident personalities many “see work as an entitlement, rather than the other way around, and are constantly evaluating whether their current employment provides what they want”…

Surveillance

Since the terrorist events occurring on September 11, 2001, policing strategies have implemented new approaches and newly available technologies. These technological advancements have allowed large cities to create expansive networks of video surveillance, redefining the observational techniques and patrolling methods of the previous decades. Although the United States utilizes a system of federalism, dividing legal authorities at the state and national levels, the increase of interconnected threats has unified resources and efforts of protection. In response to terrorist threats and international drug trafficking, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created supportive funding and legal interpretations, allowing state and local police strategies to better serve localized efforts in return for fulfilling the needs of national protection. In order to implement more elaborate structures of surveillance, definitions of civil liberties were challenged and in need of redefining.
The history of civil rights and police surveillance has always been linked to the interpretation of the fourth amendment of the constitution. The rights of individuals are being challenged in ways involving privacy and the usage of surveillance obtained evidence within the court system. One of these imposed threats of civil rights involves the questionable justification of police video surveillance on any or all individuals without warrant, probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion. The 1967 ‘expectation of privacy’ doctrine, as determined by the US Supreme Court case Katz v. United States, protected citizens from warrantless government intrusion. The ‘exclusionary rule’ allows for the court rejection of illegally obtained police evidence (Bloss W. P., 2009). Oppositional groups of police video surveillance, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, argue that the surveillance methods used by the police allow for the illegal practice of observing law abiding citizens,…

Gold Standard

Gold StandardReason For Selection
As a child, I never understood why gold was so expensive. It was nice, shiny and heavy but I was never a fan. I rather buy silver or platinum jewelry. After growing up and hearing the term gold standard, I interpreted it as being the best. Now that I’ve read the textbook, it makes me wonder why anyone would want to bring it back. Yes, the gold standard was great back in history but now it is a whole different economy. Key Term Explanation
Gold was a source of money from the beginning of time. When governments started printing money, it was convertible to a predetermined amount of gold. The gold standard regulated the quantity and growth rate of a nation’s money supply. It began in the 1880s. From the 1880 to 1914, countries’ currencies were fixed on gold. The gold standard is not currently used by any government with Britain stopping in 1931 and the United States in 1971. The gold standard was replaced by fiat money. The price of gold is no longer used as a standard, but the price of gold is determined by the demand for the metal. Gold is a major financial asset for countries and central banks. Major Article Summary
Four years ago, the Republican Party called for the establishment of a committee to investigate possible ways to set a fixed value for the dollar. In a recent debate, Senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said, “The Federal Reserve should focus on sound money and monetary stability, ideally tie to gold.” Senator Rand Paul supports creating a commission to study whether the dollar needs to be linked to a hard asset like gold. Because of low interest rates and an unparalleled bond buying program, there is some worry but belief that the gold standard is the cure. One reason is because gold holds its value over long stretches of time. However, the problem is that countries need to hold onto ever increasing amounts of gold in order to keep up with demand. Limiting the amount of…
