Transcript: Our Question Variables We believe that the brand of the ball does not affect the mangus effect because it should be the technique the way the person shoots the ball not the brand of the ball Basketball Magnus Effect Hypothesis Materials Independent Variable: The brand of the basketballs Dependent Variable: Controlled Variable: Same shooter/s, same hoop, same time of the day and same location The concern that we have with the sport basketball is... Does the brand of the basketball affect the Mangus Effect? Mangus Effect: The mangus effect is when that ball is rapidly moving through the air in a direction at an angle.This force is responsible for the swerving of balls when hit or thrown with spin The materials that we need for this experiment is: - Nike basketball - Molten Basketball - Spalding Basketball - Basketball We will also need either one basketball player or two basketball players to shoot the three different brands of basketball that we will have.
Transcript: Lesson learnt Straits Times 1. What was covered by wikileak, New York Times covered too. Times claimed that they do not collaborate with the Wikileak but they are source to allow Times to have access to documents such as the military. 2. Times takes the risk – to tell people the information of how they are governed and about the government, or to publish information without putting anyone in danger. 3. To be faster than anybody else because the media landscape has changed drastically, people work like mad to ensure that the timeliness of news is met. 4. New York Times charges the non subscribers for their online platform. To get more news, you have to continue paying. While there are also free news available, the danger is that everyone goes for free stuff when information (news) is not free; they are paid in one way or other. Page One 1. For New York, this story (wikileak) goes into the ‘inside’ story – back story whereas for other countries, it will go front page 2. Now, there are 2 worlds which need explanation to ‘what does it means to journalism’ – one where information will be kept private and classified, and the other which wants to just crack it all open (wikileak) How can it be applied to Singapore’s news biz? The New York Times Is New York Times/Traditional print news dying? They too have leveraged on social media. Instant photos uploaded on twitter for example. 1. They do have online platforms (website, twitter). There is other news which is available free but most of the articles, to read, you must pay – subscribe! 2. Recent news on PSLE results. The Straits Times and other news outlets have structured the articles in which top scorer was not named. However, in the asian parent online article, the top scorer was identified and the aggregate was revealed. Media Relations 3. In many of the political related articles published in Straits Times, most if not all are angled to be “pro-government” and certain information and message has to be conveyed to portray the positive representation of the government. But BBC in the article “Singapore’s mid-life crisis as citizens find their voice”, there was information in which it somewhat project negative side of the government (in Singapore, news may not even include those) : Editor's Response 1. During meeting, senior editors will read the summary of the story on what should be published. Some pointers that will be asked are: Have you framed it properly? Do you have facts to back it up? 2. NYT will choose to write about ‘surfing’ in a particular island. But other company will choose to write about ‘cannibalism’ in the same island. How New York Times operates? Business Times What about Example of story discussed: 1. One dude said, “Old traditional paper is done, period.” But news is not dying. News can be published on other platforms and networks; there are incredible new ways to do news. 2. News business must take advantage of the change or change as much as they want to because, technology changes, media changes too. 3. Demise of traditional news media is due to people losing faith – newspapers have ulterior motives. For example, one of the journalists who wrote an article based with wrong facts because the source gave her the ‘wrong facts’. Just because she was from NYT, therefore she is credible and she has to be credible. 4. Journalism is a public good, therefore it requires a whole new mindset about hwo you support journalism. Foreigners now make up close to 40% of the 5.3 million-strong population It is a tiny city-state in an era of nation states. It does not have great historical narratives or national myths to define its existence. The best and brightest were attracted to the top ranks of the PAP and the government with generous salaries to carry this out. The era of government-knows-best is slowly coming to an end in Singapore. No-one is quite sure what will take its place. So what New York Times did? 1. When Wikileak uploaded an edited video about the government and US Army in Iraq, it was a big chaos about the weapons used and what they heard from the video. 2. New York Times wanted to cover this story in the news but the discussion was concluded by the senior editor who said “this will go in the back story” 1. Time is the biggest newspaper. BBC, CNN and other outlets will read Times the first thing in the morning and see what is covered. Then, there is this ‘times-effect’. People will imitate what was written and reproduce and published – online or anywhere else. 2. While the Times covered stories which are not as ‘controversy’ as other outlets, we must recognise the hard work of the journalists to be on field to report on news such as the Iraq war, for example. However, ? Don’t think about the people that they’ve got. But think about the people that made it – the publishing industry.
Transcript: Snout: "O Bottom, thou art changed! What do I see on thee?" Bottom: "What do you see? You see an ass head of your own, do you?" (Act 3, Scene 1, Line 98-99) In "The Female Grotesque", Russo talks about the grotesque being an outer body experience and promotes you to look at yourself from an outer point of view. Just like Bottom was forced to look at him self in a grotesque form to find the person that was on the inside. By being transformed into an ass-head, Bottom later woke up from what he thought was a dream. How do these versions of female grotesque apply to the women and girls of this generation? Is there any way to learn from Russo's words to fix the way that we view the female image? How can we prevent younger generations to not feel grotesque? Female's Views on Females The End By: Taylar, Laura, & Emilia The introduction mentions how women's psyche is full of hate against the female body. Women look down on themselves and their objection or humiliation in the photographs show the mysterious, non identical resemblance between female and grotesque. Women see themselves as grotesque The Female Grotesque Our View on Grotesque When thinking of the word "grotesque" it never comes with a positive view. When mixing with a female view it can present itself as being dreary and dark. Females never want to associate themselves with the word grotesque and if they do it's because they have a negative view on themselves and the world around them. Grotesque can be a powerful world when used in the wrong context. Our section was entitled "Introduction" and according to dictionary.com, the definition for introduction is "a preliminary part, as of a book, musical composition, or the like, leading up to the main part." Dictionary.com also defines grotesque as an "odd or unnatural in shape, appearance, or character; fantastically ugly or absurd; bizarre." There was also a cultural event - " an ex-cavation in the 15th century Rome of ner's domus auera or golden palace across from the coliseum."(page 3) PAGE: 1-3 Russo begins her piece by talking about "the grotesque cave." A"low, hidden, earthly, dark, material, immanent, visceral." (pg. 3) Russo compares this cave to the anatomical female body “Cultural feminism” validates the traditional depictions of mother earth and also shows natural connections between both the female body form and the natural elements of earth. This was one of the most important and controversial retrievals of Roman culture in the Italian Renaissance. There were a series of strange and mysterious drawings combining animal and human body parts. " the grotesque cave" Main Points: Mary Russo begins her literary work "The Female Grotesque" by describing what the female grotesque is and how it plays a role in literature.
