The Facebook Dilemma
“The Social Dilemma” is a Netflix documentary consisting of vital information for the masses about how social media can affect your health and how you think. I watched this a few months ago for a class I was taking and it provided really good insight in to why and how companies such as Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, etc, are able to get away with what they do.
Week 2 Video Assignment

The videos above are very educational videos surrounding the topic of transmedia. What is transmedia you might be asking? Transmedia is the interaction between different forms of media. An example of this would be using this blog site to share YouTube videos regarding the subject. The first two videos that are posted above are from Henry Jenkins. Jenkins has been working with technology and the media for over twenty years. His videos have helped me fully grasp the definition of transmedia storytelling and how it impacts our everyday lives. I recommend watching one of if not all three of these videos because of how well they teach the audience. These videos not only provide the definition of what transmedia storytelling is but also provide examples to give a deeper understanding of what it really is. Out of all of the videos posted, I like the third one the best. The examples this YouTuber provides are more suitable for the younger generation to help them learn as well. I strongly recommend giving these videos a watch, especially if you feel like learning about a new, important topic.
Superbowl LVIII

The Superbowl has always been a worldwide event that has brought people together for food, drinks, and needles sports debates. It’s almost like another holiday for die-hard NFL fans, and for good reason. For 18 weeks you’re either watching your team consistently lose, win, or be mediocre, but you still sit to watch and support nonetheless. This Superbowl is a little different. This year has two teams which not many people care for going head to head. On one hand, we have arguably a top five quarterback of all time in Patrick Mahomes and his Chiefs taking on baby-faced and underrated Brock Purdy and the 49ers. These are teams not many people, besides those from those cities, care to watch. The Chiefs are this generations Patriots and seem to be in the Superbowl every year. The 49ers have been hovering around the top for a long time now and can hopefully overtake this hated Chiefs team. Either way, I have no love nor hate for either of these teams and really do not care who wins or loses. I’ll be looking forward to the buffalo chicken dip though!

This site

This site is for people who loves sports and love eating while watching them. There will be sports talk, and hot takes along with different foods I find good. A lot more towards the sport’s side of things, I want to create a place where people can listen and interact and give their opinions on sports and recipes. Theres nothing better than a Lakers v. Clippers game, except a Lakers and Clippers game with an elotte dip.
