Well, I think you are on the right track that is for sure. I listened to a
Ted Talk the other day about schools destroying creativity. If you can't
think for yourself and be creative then what are you going to do? Well, the
answer is you are going to do whatever society pushes you into. This is what
the government wants though, pons for their game. Makes you question what is
really behind "Common Core" or at least it leaves me questioning what the
purpose is in it, it is a big school movement not only here , but I believe
other countries as well. Are they systematically breaking down our youth to
fall into place on the board for perhaps the one world government? Are they
using the guise of Common Core for something bigger?
   Well, on to the school project. It appears that I will be doing this
class lecture alone. I have to think positively though if this happens to be
the case. If I am working alone, then that means I get to make all the
decisions *LOL*.

Have ideas, but a lot is political in nature.  Education though is a big
part of it, but some other things too.  

Music now is as much put together using a computer of some sort as apposed
to skill.  For any given project in the 40s and 50s you had more hands and
heads involved directly contributing to a given peace.  There of course is
the obvious too, the standard has fallen off too, but that includes the
standard of what people will go purchase too, so the consumer is equally to
blame too.

Rap, not all, but much of it, is nothing but anger and disrespect.

>> Well, one of the big assignments is coming up next week. I signed up for
a group presentation that is to be given on Sept. 3. There is supposed to be
3 other members in my group, but being that it is the first group no one is
signing up *LOL*. My thoughts are do it and get it over with, then the rest
of the semester I can listen to the presentations. The presentation is 20
minutes long, the longest presentation that I have given since being at the
university. well the longest presentation I have given period since starting
college. The good thing is the video can be up to 5 minutes long and I found
one that was 46 seconds long and then I found another one that was 200
seconds long so 4 minutes and 6 seconds. The videos are funny, but I had to
ask Amanda about both of them to make sure what the content was and one to
make sure that they were appropriate. Given the audience I believe they will
be just fine. The presentation is on parental stress and family stress
theory or something to that nature. One video is of penguins, a hand full of
baby penguins and then the momma penguin, the penguins are going off and
then all of a sudden the momma penguin kicks one of them off into the water
*LOL*. After that they all shut up for a second and then started right back
into it. The next one is a rap song about parental stress and at one point
she says I have all my "bitches and hoes" with me, but when Amanda watched
it, it was concluded that she was being politically correct as in the video
there were two dogs and then when she said "hoes" it showed her with her
garden hoes. So, that was the extent of the videos. I just about kicked the
song due to the language, but then when Amanda watched it I decided to keep
it. It is now in my professor's inbox waiting for approval. Anyways if you
all will, keep me in your prayers regarding this presentation. One of the
videos that I am going to paste at the bottom is very much so visual, but
Bethann and the other sighted members can enjoy that one and we can all if
we choose to enjoy the song.
