Watching these videos, I feel very sorry for Jazz. It must be very hard especially around age eleven when boys start coming into your life and you want to date. I would never guess that she is a boy, she looks nothing like one and she acts nothing like a boy. That has to be a lot of stress on Jazz and her family. Her family wants her to be happy and love herself and Jazz seems to be dealing with it well. It makes sense that Jazz is obsessed with mermaids, because mermaids have tails and not boy or girl genitals. Jazz is very strong! She has told her friends her situation and is not ashamed of it. I do not know why other kids would want to kill Jazz for being transgender, what does it make a difference for them. Jazz’s parents deal with the situation so great; it is unbelievable how strong Jazz is even though she is half boy half girl and that could cause a lot of psychological problems within her. It seems to me it does not bother her at all, and she does not need help overcoming the fact that she looks and acts like a girl, but has boy genitals. I would assume that many people with this gender identity problem could be depressed and feel like they are a reject and do not belong in the world. In my high school there was a girl who was very short and very overweight who looked like a boy but was a girl. She was not in my grade so I never spoke to her, but in the halls she was always very mean. She had a gender identity problem we found out and I guess that was why she was such an angry person. She was mad at the world because everyone around her was normal while she had a problem going on inside of her. I completely understand why she was like that, yet other kids I do not think did and made fun of her. Her being so mean though, made kids mean back. I never understood why people who were loners in school always were so mean when you tried to talk to them and make them feel welcomed. I guess they thought we were talking to them out of sympathy but still, they
Ray Bradbury Video Response Paper
We learned a lot about Bradbury from this interview and from his books. One of Bradbury’s personal concerns was for books. He discussed how when he was younger he was a librarian and Hitler began burning books. You can tell this was a major concern for Bradbury because he was very fond of books and fond of the history of books. When the burning of the books began Bradbury took it very personally because of the great love and appreciation he had….

Video Response: Maquilapolis
Maquilapolis seems to me that it is doing more harm than good. I thought well it’s creating jobs for people so they can live happily, but it’s just big name companies exploiting non skilled workers. It really surprises me that the United States and Mexico let things get the way they were in the video. I agree with the women that are standing up to the companies they should fight to get better treatment and they….

Video Response #2: King Corn
The US planted 91.6 million acres of corn in 2014. This is down 4% from 2013, and the
lowest acreage since 2010, but still the fifth largest since 1944. About 40% of this was used for
ethanol production, 36% was fed to livestock, 20% was exported, and only 4% was eaten by
humans (much of this being high-fructose corn syrup).
Row crops leave much of the soil (gaps between rows) bare and loose, which….
Terry Fox Video Response Journal
After watching the video and discovering a little more about Terry Fox with the guest speaker and all, it has reminded me once again about Terry's courageous achievement. For many years, ever since I came to Canada, I learned about Terry Fox, ran the Terry Fox Run, Terry Fox fundraising for Cancer Research, watched videos about Terry during assemblies, and have discussed about Terry's bravery; each time I hear about him, he never ceases to make me look back at….
The “Globalization of Jazz” is occurred when musicians from all around the world that were assimilating bebop and post-bop styles into the music of their culture in interesting and creative ways and creating new hybrid styles. Jazz had absorbed musical influences from other cultures and the reciprocal absorption of jazz into other parts of the world was….
