1. http://www.stateuniversity.com/blog/permalink/Affirmative-Action-Arguments-For-and-Against.html

It is a commercial website trying inform students about the discrimination of races in college and the affirnative action happening. The article seems to be about a few months old.

Tis is an organizational website. It is an updated version of a 1996 essay. It gives two charts to show how recent it is. Also, it looks like a legit organization because the symbol at the lower right corner of the page.

3.NANODOCS

An up-to-date website made commercia. It looks real because it says it is a hospital dedicated to nanomedicine.

4.http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources/factsheets/us.htm

A governmental website. You can tell its real because it is from the Department of Health and Human Services. It gives charts that shows how current it is.

5.Pregnant women can drink safely in moderation

Seems to being something somebody wrote. It is more of a blog. Has a spelling error (may be more than one). It does has reference but no sign of an organization. Its a commercial website.

My Source

My source omes from the internet, but it is a research  associate speaking on the issue of obesity being a disease. The associate gets all of his information from the dictionary and from what he thinks or already knows.

1. The critic agrees that it is a good movie. He uses words like “satisfying” and “good, clean scares”.

2. His criteria for evaluation is based on budget, scariness, and the types of shots and zooms used.

3. To support his evaluation he uses evidence like by talking about the “mature pondering of Christian morals” in the movie. He doesnt use compare/contrast in his judgement.

4. The author did not specify the intended audience for the movie.

“Black Men Ski”

September 9, 2010 1 comment

This video to me is very confusing but funny at the same time. I had no idea what he was talking about, but some of the things he was saying were funny and made me laugh. For example, At 1:48 ofthe video he says “we make postmodern art with bacon grease and hot combed hair.” That doesnt make any sense to me but sounds funny.

I think the argument that he is making is that different races have become adapted to living with othe races in the world and that they are now what a certain race wouldn’t normally do. Like, “Chinese guys jump real high” or ” Germans cook soul food”. Some of this could be exxagerated. Since the audience is quiet, it makes me think that Stew is speaking on a serious situation and the audience is thinking about what he is saying.

If i could leave stew a comment it would be “I dont get it.”
