I’m confused as to why this is still an issue. Seriously. It amazes me how much progress human kind has made, yet people who are homosexual have to hide their identity while they are serving in the army. They are giving their lives to this country and the country can’t except them for who they are because it will jeopardize the structure and mentality of the program. Why does their sexual preference matter this much. If you can’t handle homosexuality then you need to grow up.

I don’t understand how people have all of this free time to even do things as silly as create fake twitter accounts. I tried to get a twitter account about a month ago and that was stressful enough for me, I don’t see how an adult with an actual job has time to play around and be juvenile. LIke most things, social media has its drawbacks too.

I really like this ad. Nike always does a good job with their advertisements. First off, their target audience is obviously women, but I like how you don’t see the woman’s face, or even the rest of her body. She could be anyone. I also like how they chose to use a gradient color for her skin tone- eliminating ethnicity automatically connects everyone women to this ad. The copy is effective because it’s not like every other ad that is simply telling you about the product. It’s reminding you why you want to buy their product.

You’re right, the first line of the copy is a little long, but I like the message they were going for. This ad could be very effective because they chose to promote their product in a way that competitors usually don’t Other yogurt ads typically advertise their yogurt by focusing on the health benefits of yogurt. Everyone gets hungry late at night, so they are targeting a large audience and doing it creatively.

When I saw this ad I was a little surprised that it was a PETA ad. Usually, their ads are pictures of naked celebrities holding up signs that say they don’t wear fur, or something to that affect. It’s good to see that they aren’t relying on sex to sell their message.

Their message is so important that it can get overshadowed by their raunchy ads; however, this ad doesn’t do that. This ad is really effective because it lets the animal and the message do the selling, which is what they want to raise awareness over. It PETA makes more ads like this one, then I think they will have a better reputation.

Thankfully, I won’t be flying anytime time soon. I can’t believe that the TSA actually has permission to “touch peoples junk.” I understand that for security purposes, some form of a search must be conducted; however, there is still such a thing as privacy. These new measures are defiantly an invasion of privacy and are just very uncomfortable. This issue has sparked a lot of debate- we talked about it in one of my other classes. I’m guessing that this security measure will change soon. Surely they can come up with something better and more professional than this.

Before this class, I knew very little about Op-Eds. In fact, I knew what they were, but I didn’t know what they were called. Since then, I feel like Op-Eds had popped up everywhere in my life. In one of my CULF classes our final paper was focused around 2 Op-Eds. I’m amazed at how everything e have done in this class has taught me about things I’m constantly dealing with right now.
