    The short video shares a lot of information and views about the public relations industry. The opinion that is expressed is that the public relations industry manipulates the public opinion and the well-being of the general population. I agree with this entirely. Advertising and marketing is a form of propaganda, it has become a part of our culture and we don’t even notice it. Many Americans still believe that we are not influenced by it, but we are every day. Public relations firms go out of their way to keep their campaigns hidden from the public they seek to influence. I was shocked to hear that the news sometimes may not even be real news. I watch the news and love hearing all the new stories that are going on, and to hear that the PR may be behind as much as 50% of it with pre-made pre-packaged stories is pretty disappointing.…

    Coral Bleaching

    • 799 Words
    • 4 Pages

    What is Coral bleaching? Coral bleaching is the whitening of corals due to expulsion or death of the protozoa’s pigment. The corals that form the structure of reef ecosystems of tropical seas depend upon a symbiotic relationship with unicellular protozoa, called zooxanthellae, which live within their tissues. Zooxanthellae give coral its coloration. Under stress, corals may release their zooxanthella, which causes the coral to look white or “bleached”. This is a bad issue and if we don’t enforce it, it could have many negative effects on us humans and other forms of life on Earth.…

    Every day I let my dog out to the backyard. He does an entire lap around the yard while marking his territory. One time I noticed that while doing his little routine, he would always piss on this particular plant like if it were a fire hydrant or something. At that time I thought he would eventually kill the plant, I mean its piss he is pouring on it right? However, to my amazement the plant survived after two full weeks of this special treatment. Not only did it survive, it actually flourished more than some of the other plants surrounding it. Since my dogs urine had such effects on the plant, I wondered if my own would provide the same results. But instead of acting like a dog and soiling my own yard, I will explore the pros and cons of using human urine as a fertilizer.…
