    On the Ellsworth Correctional Center site visit

    I thought that the visit to the womens correction center was pretty good, very informative, I liked that the speakers were different ages and backgrounds. . .

    tara -- can you relate some of their stories to theories from the arrigo book?

    On the Ellsworth Correctional Center site visit

    I attended the Ellesworth women's prison on thur. I was a little nervous about going at first, but it wasn't as bad as i thought. I thought it was really nice that the ladies talked to us about why they were there and the experiences that they have gone through. When that last lady started to talk about her kids and stuff, i almost started to cry, i almost felt bad for her. This was the first site visit i have even been on, and I thought they had it some what nice there, compared to what i hear about other place,although i could be wrong. anyway, i really enjoyed the visit.

    amanda --- glad you enjoyed this site visit. which class is this for? once you've decided, then relate your observation to the class readings and other materials.

    On the Eisenberg lecture

    I went to Leslie Eisenberg's presentation Friday and I thought it was very good. She talked a lot about her cases that she gets called in on and some I would never have thought she would deal with. An example is her going to look at bones but people not knowing what kind of bones (animal or human). I thought they would have someone else that would be able to identify those besides her. Over all I liked the presentation and it was very interesting to hear about what she does for a living.

    abbigale -- how does what she presented compare to the media's presentation of this same topic?

    On Sammy Rangel's lecture

    Just wanted to let you know that I thought our speaker on Friday was great! His story was unbelievable. I really give him credit for getting his life together and working as hard as he does. He is a perfect example that shows people no matter how hard your life is and how you grew up, you can determine your future.

    amy -- thanks for the feedback! can you tell me which theory from the arrigo book applies here? why.

    On Sammy Rangel's lecture

    I really enjoyed listening to Sammy Rangel about his life and the struggles that he went through to get to where he is now. I liked the statement he made "people are contagious." If people would think more positive this would eliminate negative stereotyping.

    april -- besides CRT, which arrigo theory best applies? why.

    On Asian Americans

    While examining the discussion question regarding what movies and television shows portray Asians in stereotypical and nonstereotypical ways, I was left with no answers. So I examined this and came across a very useful and interesting website. It contains information, with examples of films, that depict asian americans in stereotypical ways. The website is Asian Americans: An Analysis of Negative Stereotypical Characters in Popular Media This may be helpful to others as well.

    stephen -- thanks!

    On class discussion on beer ads

    About the discussion today in class on the beer advertisements, a lot of people believe they are not influenced by beer commercials that are being advertised during the game. If this were true, I am sure the companies would not spend a great deal of time and money in running the commercials during the games.

    abbigale -- want to research the issue of beer ads and their influence or the influence of advertising, in general?
