Budget & Endorsements We want to make travel faster for everyone and cheaper for everyone around the world. Traveling should be easier, and this is easy. Needs & Problems Blue Tech has been around for at least 16 years, as it was founded in 2000. The story of our founder, Deborah Blue, began in New York, where she lived her whole life. She always yearned to travel but could never afford it. One fateful day, she got a scholarship to the New York Institute of Technology. She studied for 4 years until she earned her Master’s in Engineering, Technology, and Aerodynamics. When she finished college, her parents celebrated her success by surprising her with a trip to Florida. When she arrived, she saw many new sights and was amazed by the beauty of the world. But, Deborah also heard a few sad tales. On her way back to the airport, she took the bus and ended up sitting next to an old woman. Deborah asked if the woman is traveling somewhere out of the state. The woman told Deborah that she could never afford to travel, only the bus. Deborah kept this in mind and heart all the way back to New York. When she arrived home, she started a campaign to create a new way of transportation. She wanted to invent a way for people to travel easily. Her idea was for people to go on a bus, pay the fare, and then the bus would be attached to a plane that will travel to wherever they wanted to go. The campaign raised a lot of money and Deborah’s vision became a reality. This story of our founder, Deborah, still inspires us to this day. That’s why our mission statement is NEVER GIVE UP. Thanks for taking interest in our company! Introduction Goals Blue Tech Our budget is $ 150,900,650, this ma seem like a lot but we want every one that boards our bus/plane to be safe. This money will fund advertising, experimentation, and the building of the product. Our endorsements are The Living Young Institute at http:// NAMI Lee County at The Diamond District at Summary People have lost opportunities many times because of money. Seeing the world has become impossible because of cost. There are so many advances in technology but, none of them help out others in need. add logo here


Transcript: TV: Family Guy (Fox) On one of the episodes, the storyline features a man who vomits onscreen for a lengthy period of time after discovering he had slept with a transgender character. The episode also contained anti-trans language and defamatory characterizations. TV: The Fosters (ABC) In this scene, it's revealed that Ava slept with her son and later denies it and says that he's adopted. Our Research Transparent Internet: Orange is the New Black (Netflix) Laverne Cox is a MTF transgender woman of color who plays the character of Sophia Burset, who is also a trans woman in prison for credit card fraud, in an attempt to pay for a sex change. -1st Transgender individual ever nominated for an Emmy. -1st Transgender ever to appear on the cover of Time magazine. These misrepresentations lead people to adopt values and beliefs that further the gender binary and normative hegmonic majority viewpoints. - Gender Confusion: By portraying characters that don't understand themselves, the media portrays gender confusion to an already strict gender binary society. - Racism: The very few transgender characters of color play roles that further the stereotypes of certain ethnicities. - Mental Illness: In order for the normative hegemonic society to relate to the transgender community, they automatically assume they are mentally ill because they do not fit within the social constructs as male or female. - Homophobia/ Transphobia: The predominant assumption of the transgender community is that individuals are homosexuals, when this is not necessarily the case. There is a difference between gender and sexual orientation. Ava Moore is a trangender character on the show Nip/Tuck and is portrayed as a pyschopathic, baby stealing, sexual predator who sleeps with her own son. They dedicated a whole season to her. Ava is shown here with a baby that she has stolen. The scars on the baby are from a plastic surgery procedure that she wanted done so he can be "perfect". When she found out that some of the scarring was permanent, she abandons the baby at the hospital because she believes being different leads to a road of pain. Sources After learning that he has slept with a transgender woman, Brian is seen vomiting for a very long period of time. Our Product ELLE Modeling Agency: A modeling Agency for Transgender Individuals specifically Our goal is to help the Trans community integrate with the world of media and help them to not only be represented but to also help provide a place of security for those looking to become models, actors/actresses, etc. We provide information and resources to health issues, employment laws, and protections against discrimination. TV: Nip/Tuck (FX) This show featured a storyline about a transgender woman who regretted her transition, a transgender sex worker being beaten, and an entire season about a psychopathic trans woman depicted as a baby-stealing sexual predator who sleeps with her own son. Research Continued Misrepresentation Explained - Transgender characters are cast in the "victim" role at least 40% of the time. - Transgender characters were cast as killers or villains at least 21% of the time in episodes and story lines. - The most common profession transgender characters were depicted as were sex workers (20%). - Anti- transgender slurs, language and dialogue was present in at least 61% of the episodes and story lines. **Statistics from GLAAD, an organization that investigates LGBT news to help build support for equality.** Tom Phelan is a 17 year old FTM Transgender teen who plays Cole, a trans teenager in an all female group home. Cole struggles with being displaced from his home for being perceived as a lesbian. He leaves home and is caught with hormonal drugs and sent to juvie. “I just really hope that people know that there are people like Cole out there, and there are people like me out there. We’re people like anyone else. We should be treated with the same respect and love as anyone else.” - Tom Phelan Since the amount of transgender individuals is so limited in the media, we decided to analyze as much of it as we could for our research. We looked at TV shows, magazines, high fashion runway shows, documentaries, movies, etc. Guided Questions during our research: - Who shows up? Do they have a form of privilege within the community? - What character/role do they play? - What is the status quo of the community and how does reality conflict with what is portrayed? - Is there an element of invisibility? Analysis RACISM


Transcript: SCIENCE Translucent Some Translucent Objects Aiden Ferreira Transparent Links Translucent objects are a little harder to notice. Translucent objects are also see through, but the light doesn't travel through them as well as transparent objects. You can tell there is something behind the object, but you may not be able to tell what the object is. Opaque objects are very different from transparent and translucent. These objects make it so light can pass by at all, resulting in the viewer not being able to see through it. Most of the worlds objects consist of opaque materials, and one those materials is the computer you are viewing this on. SCIENCE Some Opaque Objects Thank You I hope you enjoyed and learned something new Some Transparent Objects "Photons pass through glass because they are not absorbed. And they are not absorbed because there is nothing which "absorbs" light in visual frequencies in glass. You may have heard that ultraviolet photons are absorbed by glass, so glass is not transparent for them."- Google Opaque Transparent, Translucent, and Opaque Objects When taking a picture, you know something is transparent by looking at it. If you can see through the object and can see what is on the other side, then it is transparent. Opaque objects are so solid that they don't let any light at all pass through, so this results in it not being see through. Transparent you could see through, translucent you could see a little bit through, but opaque you can't see through it at all. SCIENCE When light strikes these translucent objects, light protons have a ahrd time getting through, so when looking through translucent objects, the image behind them isn't clear.
