Reflective Journal – Week Four

After this weeks discussions about media and how much it really affects our society, it got me thinking about how much it affected me personally. I own a BlackBerry, laptop, facebook account, twitter account and use youtube regularly. Now if all of these were taken away from me I would feel very unconnected to the world and I would have no idea what was going on with the people around me. It really made me realize how much I depend on mass media and technology in my everyday life.

The global warming book that I choose to read was Merchants of Doubt by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.

After finishing up the book, The Honor Song, it really came together and allowed me to see how much this event affected the entire Mohawk tribe and Canada in general. All of the different ways people expressed how they felt and what they experienced was really different and interesting then just reading a really long novel. Overall, it was a great and inspiring read.
