Transcript: PEOPLE Magazine: Compelling news and reporting on the most interesting abd important people of our time. Its the premier destination for celebrity news, photos, critic reviews (movies, music, tv exc.), style and entertainment coverage. According to Huffington Post it reaches the most adult readers over any other magazine and is the #1 mag. bought by luxury consumers. Who's reading PEOPLE? The audience of our magazine, as it's title suggests, includes different people: -According to Huffington Post, as of 2009, 43.6 million readers. -Young women who are interested in pop culture, want to read about popular movies, tv shows, books, music, and latest exclusive interviews, and want a magazine with more of a "gossipy" writing style -Middle aged adults looking to keep up to date on current events, but want to read about it in a lighter setting -Teenagers interested in celebrity news and fashion, recipes, music, and upcoming books -Middle Aged Women who want to know the latest trends and pop culture, while still getting to read about current events -people simply looking for the latest updates in entertainment All these age groups and interests find something intriguing about the information presented. How do we know?-The Ads featured in the magazine have a small variety, which is a clear sign as to who is reading PEOPLE. -Ads such as "Covergirl Lashblast Mascara," "JEnny Craig Wieght loss systems," L'oreal Revitalift Wrinkle remover, "Coach" perfume samples, and Neutrogena skin care products are featured in almost every issue. These ads can target both young and old audiences. Even mens perfume samples are included, hinting that PEOPLE magazine really can appeal to everyone. -We also determined People's audience by looking at the types of articles in each issue. There are always at least 3 celebrity articles (interviews, inside scoops, etc.), a current event article, a fashion section, human interest stories, a featured "Heroes Among us" and a movies, tv, music, and books. These are all specifically geared towards the audience that people generally attracts. So we mimicked these styles in our own articles and made a human interest story as well as a celebrity piece to show the magazines breath. Some articles: What did we notice about Style/Voice/Tone in PEOPLE? -Due to PEOPLE magazine's large variety of articles, the tone of the magazine remains informative, quippy, and direct. The lighter articles are located in the beginning of the magazine. -The Scoop section is an example of this. It contains brief semi-humorous headlines, with commonly used language depicting the latest celeb gossip. the style writing used here is colloquial, and as if the writing was discussed around peers. This style, one of many, we mimicked for our article which entailed Lindsay Winehouse. -We used a lighter tone for the article, even though rehab and DUI's are no laughing matter. We tried to embody the idea that people want to hear ridiculous celebrity gossip, not a depressing story about a well-liked hollywood star. -We noticed that PEOPLE's style of writing is short, simply worded articles that deliver information in an easy to read way. This is what we tried to achieve in both articles. The topics PEOPLE covers require little background knowledge to understand, which means everyone can enjoy them. -An example of the way PEOPLE uses style, tone, and voice is in their celebrity interviews. The interviews are informally conducted (Maya Rudolph was interviewed over chicken and waffles) and include humorous questions that bring readers some "real life" celebrity scoop. The interviews include questions about favorite foods, most embarrassing moments, and first crushes. This fun, yet rather useless information, makes reading PEOPLE an amusing experience. Sources are also an important part of PEOPLE's style and tone. Sources within articles are vaguely cited, even though the content is informative and factual, the excessive quotations within each article, allows the audience to accept its validity. In more serious articles, like a story about the presidents, a source like Michelle Obama might be used and directly quoted. The sources in people indicate who is reading which sections, and what they expect to hear. Sources play as big a role in style and tone as the actual information and quotes do. Various Covers Style, tone, and voice are all present even on the cover of the magazine. The headlines in bold sometimes have alliteration, or words like "untold", "secret" or "exclusive" which entice readers. Images of the most well known people that are featured in the magazine are also placed on the cover. -Due to PEOPLE magazine's large variety of articles, the tone of the magazine remains informative, quippy, and direct.

Background of Maasai people

Transcript: Animals that live by the Maasia people are mainly Black rhino and the Bengal tiger. There are many other animals, but those two are the main ones around most of the time. Background of Maasai people There has been an issue with land disappearance. They are trying to keep their land from disappearing and keep the animals around them safe. They have very many ceremonies every year including the meat-eating ceremony, milk- drinking ceremony, and many more. They have them every year t the same times and dates. The Maasia people move around a lot and don't normally stay in one place for a while. They grow some crops and buy cattle. Thre clothing is a long, big. necklace around the front of their chest, and woman wear dresses and men wear leather capes with dresses under them. They shave their head, the men wear leather caps on their head. How they adapt and their clothing The Maasai live in Souther Kenya and Northern Tanzania. They also live along the Great Rift Valley. Homes The Maasai There are not many crops around the area they live. They do make kale and other vegtables. They also crop plants and trees. They had a very bad drought, which caused the ground to dry up and make it hard to grow anything The people of Africa's vast savanna are united by their strong identity with the sprawling plains that surround them. Originally, these pastoral groups came to the savanna looking for food, scavenging after leftover game killed by large predators. Today, these original hunter-gatherers exist in the form of the Dorobo tribes of the eastern Serengeti, who survive by hunting small game and collecting honey and wild fruits and vegetables. Long ago, the Dorobo were joined by herdsmen and pastoralists from northern Africa. Among these, the Maasai have held the most tenaciously to their wanderlust. These tall, dark skinned herdsmen in striking red cloaks and beadwork have come to symbolize the face of Africa's savanna people to the outside world. The Maasai share the plains with the Kikuyu, traditionally a nation of farmers, who now form the backbone of Kenyan society. The homes they live in are loaf shaped, made with mud and sticks. The thorns around the out side keep lions and other animals from attacking their family they have in the homes. They way the interact or use their land Animals Traditions Plants and crops Location
