Question - You wouldn’t want someone stealing your hard work, intentionally or even unintentionally, would you? Of course not. Why?

Answer -  I wouldn't want someone stealing my hard work whether if it was intentionally or not because I took my time and my hard effort to do my work. For someone else to come and steal is or use my work is wrong. Plaigarism is not tolerated with my work because the same time I took and did my work can be the same time a person can choose to do theirs

Question - The way someone tells a joke is as important as the joke itself. This is comic timing.  How is this timing related to the way you present the information in your project?  Is the timing of your presentation important?  Can the timing enhance your presentation?  Defend your answer.

Answer - This timing is related to the way you present a project because the longer you take to present it, the less-interest people become in your project. The timing is important because the pace you go can inflict verbal damage into your project. Timing can also enhance your project  because only you will know what you want to say if you make it quick you will get more important details out of it.

Question - Do you think teenagers today should show more respect for adults? (teachers, parents etc)  Do you think it important for teenagers to show respect for adults?  Why?

Answer - I think they should show respects to adults as a whole because it would be the right thing to do. Besides you will never know when we might need a certain individual one of these days. It is very important because respect will get you far in life, whether it be respecting the young to the old. My only philosophy is that "To get respect it must be earned".

Question - What do you think is the purpose of Copyright?  Why is Copyright a good thing?

Answer - I think the purpose of Copyright is that it gives the legal or illegal provision to make copies of a certain product. Copyright is a good thing because it will stop those who try to make bootlegs incapable of doing so. Copyright will put an end to the wrongs done to the original source of products sold.

Question - What do you think is the difference between the Internet and cable/satellite TV?  How are these similar?  Do you think that these and other technologies will converge?

Answer - There really is no difference between the two because the same way you can watch TV on a television set, you can watch it on the Internet. The only difference is that we can not control what comes on our TV. Where the internet if we go to a certain channel's site we can choose what we want to watch.

Question - Would you rather talk on the phone or text message someone? Why?

Answer - I would rather text message someone because I am not the talker type. If I text someone it is easier for me to come up with something to say rather on the phone when I am on the spot to say something. Text messaging is better for me to create something out of nothing. Sometimes if I want to say something but then I change my mind, I can just erase what I typed before sending it. If I was on the phone I can not take back anything I say because it is already out there.

Question - Do you understand information that you read or information that you hear? Why do you think this is so?

Answer -  I understand information better that I hear because when I read some things I read may not have a definite, broken down  meaning of what is trying to be said or explain. Information that I hear can be broken down if asked, reading you can not ask the book or whatever you are reading for a clearer meaning.

Question - Do you think the Internet is making people more impatient? Are we becoming a society were we all want instant satisfaction?  

Answer- Internet does make people more impatient because we are so used to a certain speed and when things start to slow down we tend to get upset and mad with the computer because it doesn't function the way we want to. Instant satisfaction is bad for people because in life you will not get everything you want, when you want, and how fast we want it. That is a habit everyone needs to break away from.

Question - Do you think that some people spend too much time on the Internet and does this stop them from seeing their friends? Why?

Answer - Yes, some people spend a lot of time, actually on the internet. I honestly can say that this do sometimes stop them from seeing their friends because their eyes get glued to the screen and nothing or no one will pull them eyes back. Being on the internet a lot is not a good thing either because it's bad for your eye sight and attention span. Friendships have been lost because of stupid things like this, trust me I know through experience. Get away from that screen and get with your friends would be my advice to those who stay online too long.

Question - Do you think robots will cause unemployment (loss of jobs) in the future or make more work? Why?

Answer - I do think robots will cause employment loss of work because all they have to do is be programmed how do a specific job and will be tested to see if we got the job. They do not have to be paid by the hour, only electrically charged. To me I think robots are the cheapest way out. Business employers will not have to worry about over-time, no call-no shows, lateness, etc.

Question - Why do you think information literacy is important to you?  How will you use information literacy skills now and in the future?

 Answer - I think information literacy is important because it helps us reach conclusions, make our choices, and communicate more effectively. I would use these skills now and in the near future by evaluating what the cause & effect of a problem or any decision I make and I would be more careful before any decision is made.

Question - Do you work better when it is quiet or you are listening to music? If so what type of music is the best for learning?  Does the music help to relax, inspire you or is it just a distraction?

Answer - In my opinion I work better when I am listening to music. Music is a part of me and all that I am is music. I prefer "Chris Brown" because he is my favorite artist over all. It gets and keeps me focus on my work and the task at hand, relaxing, smooth, sometimes a little jumpy but it all falls in at the right time and place. Never will his music be a distraction because I love his work and there is not one song created by him or that he is collaborated with that I do not know. "Number 1 Chris Brown Fan"
