Virtual Reality: The New Way to experience Technology

Technology is an on going source that is used daily by everyone world wide. There are so many ways you can access it. Technology gets better each month, there is always something new or added on to our devices.
Now in days companies try to make everything more realistic and hands on to make the experience better.
Virtual reality is just that and more. According to virtual reality is “the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.” In other words it is a COOL way to see things around us. These devices allow you to feel like everything u are seeing is really happening around you. Ex. If i am seeing/riding a roller coaster on your VR device Personally for me i feel my heart dropping while going down the hill. Although technology will continue to changes as time passes us by i really can’t imagine anything or any other device that will top VR but i guess we will have to see.


Black Girls Rock; Having the power to distribute our magic gracefully together…

Black girls rock was an event held by Eastern Michigan’s girl org PBC (project big sister) on March 28th in McKenny ball room. This by far was one of the best events I’ve been to throughout my 3year college career. This event was geared toward empowering and acknowledging black women through dance, spoken word and remarks from a key note speaker.
The event started off with crowd participation. We were asked “what does black girl magic mean to you” the answer that stood out the most to be was “Over coming statistics and proving society wrong”. I felt that on so many levels because color for some reason matters and I don’t mean this in a good way. For example black girls are stereotyped as the ghetto, dumb and uneducated beings while others are just the opposite. That statistic is so untrue and this event proved that. There was a part of the event where black girls were acknowledged for their hard work and dedication through their service to all man kind. Each women was awarded an plaque and or certificate of their job well done.
The keynote speaker Latoya Cunningham is a former grad from eastern Michigan University. She is now a PR expertise with multiple businesses. She not only encouraged and motivated us but she always taught us the importance of self love. She dropped gems and knowledge that were very relatable as seen in the videos part one and two on twitter. After leaving this event I was very encouraged to not only continue to follow my dreams but to to continue to break the negative barriers that society holds against black girls or just being black period. Your race should never interfere with anything we are all equal.LC.jpg

What’s Easter W/o Jelly beans? ‘‘Tis the season for bunny’s hopping and jelly beans dropping.. Can’t decide what flavor? TRY THEM ALL!

Can u believe it? It seems as if 2018 has just started and were already heading in to the spring season. With spring come flowers, kissing in the rain, allergies for some and oh how could i ever forget JELLY BEANS! Yes that’s right for all you jelly bean feins your time has come around.
Jelly beans originated from William Schrafft in 1861. He urged people to send jelly beans to soldiers During the American Civil war. It was not until July 5, 1905, that jelly beans were mentioned in the Chicago Daily News.
We all know that Ohio is the greatest state there is. However, jelly beans and their wide variety of flavors has took over America. This map shows “America’s favorite jelly bean by state”.
There are hundreds and thousands of jelly bean brands to choose from but when making that choice u always look for the one with the best flavors here’s some just to name a few:
  1. Life Savors
  2. Jolly rancher
  3. Starburst
  4. Jelly bean
  5. Just born
  6. Laffy taffy
  7. Nerd.
And the list continues.. jelly beans have become so popular that stores sell them when it’s not even Easter season. Consumers enjoy eating them any time of the year. Some even compare the taste to their personality
example: Cherry flavor may be a person with a sweet and savor personality while Grape flavor may be a person with a more dark or toned down personality..Very Cherry remained the most popular flavor of Jelly Belly beans for two decades until 1998. Either way all jelly beans are good regardless. i challenge u to be more like the cherry/light colored jelly beans.. very sweet upbeat and everyone’s favorite. Just promise me you’ll schedule your dentist appointment after eating so much candy.
Happy Easter from me to you.

“How news organizations use analytics to make coverage decisions”…

To answer this question one would have to know what “using analytics” are. That was my first approach on answering this question. Sometime its best to break down a question in pieces to get a full understanding of the content to be able to share knowledge. I was once told that you cant grasp/understand a concept, or question until you can teach it. According to WiKi, Analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in data. Especially valuable in areas rich with recorded information, analytics relies on the simultaneous application of statistics, computer programming and operations research to quantify performance.

In a news room analytics can be used to make news stories more sophisticated and news worthy. It can be to help improve the content of stories. i personally Believe that using analytics benefits the journalist by giving news stories an interesting approach. “Most people in the newsroom have a curiosity about the readership anyway, or are keen to see how they can leverage statistical feedback to improve their work.” Having a deeper connection beyond a readers interest is what i think makes the difference. Using the metrics and measurements method is also beneficial. All in all analytics are tools to help enhance both the reader and the journalist to make the story reach its full potential and make the best coverage decision. metrics.jpg
