    Third Module – Text Analysis (Post 1)

    by

    Last module!!

    For this Methodology module, I have chosen to do the Text-Analysis option.

    Computers are incredibly smart, but they can’t solve everything. When looking at a novel or long text, a computer can’t analyze the text for you. You can tell it what you want to look up and …

    Second Module – MEMES

    Who doesn’t love memes?!?

    They add comedy to a conversation, help explain things a little more, and provide some entertainment to everyday life. From the Spongebob meme to a still shot of a scene from The Office, there are tons of memes out there for every conversation type.

    Digital Polarization Project

    My group had the question:

    Does eating vegetables make men smell sexier to women?

    When first hearing this question, one really does not have a concrete answer, they form an opinion. Even after researching studies and finding data on the matter, one can (and probably will) still form an opinion. …

Occasionally it is possible to learn about a person who you have never heard of your entire life but once you find them you realize they totally fit the definition of someone to be greatly admired. Who was the last role model or hero that you “discovered”? Why do they fit that description?
