How does looking up headlines in the New York Times connect to sociological imagination?
This assignment connects to sociological imagination because looking up for those headlines is something anyone can do, that information is public for anybody to read and know about it. This is basically and example of people interacting with their issues.
8 questions of the photo!
1. In this picture I see a woman with a long face letting me know that she is stressed. Probably because life right now for her is not going so well. There is also a sign of preoccupation on her, and I believe that is because with times this tough she has no way of supporting her family. For the looks of it she might be a single mother, making things a lot harder. And it looks like she already gave a lot in order to keep her family together because her clothes are all dirty and old, it is possible that she has a very low payment job or maybe no job at all.
2. When I look at this photograph I feel hopeless because it reminds me that there will never be a time where everyone would be able to live on happily, the only way ones can be content it’s if others suffer.
3. This people are the Destitutee pea pickers in California.
4. If I was one of the people in this picture I would be so devastated, worried, and stressed, there is no way to get out of situations like this on your own, so I would have to simple work and survive the situation with hopes that one day the country will come to a golden age, and even know that it will never get better it would help me to have a dream to look up to, a dream to keep me motivated during the worst times. This picture sets a mood that goes a long with its color, gray! Sad and sorrowful.
5. The way the dress and the fact that the woman has many kids gives signs of bad times in America such as the great depression or any other period.
6. The picture indicates that they are in California, probably in a slum.
7. Judging by their clothes, and their expressions they are low class people.
8. All I could say is that this photo is probably the same story for everyone else, they are all sad and hopeless but thinking about those times before when things weren’t that bad.
Is Wal-Mart good for America? Should there be a walmart in New York?
I believe that Wal-Mart is good for America but depending on where it is located. As long as this particular store is not placed near smaller businesses that cant bear to compete, then Wal-Mart would do us all a favor because it won’t destroy jobs for people and it will also allow people to buy things for little money. No Wal-Mart should not be stored in New York because this state has plenty of smaller businesses that contain plenty of jobs available for people, and if Wal-Mart starts eliminating all of these businesses then a lot of people would lose their jobs. And although Wal-Mart can provide jobs, it won’t be enough.
Reasons From Movie.
1. New York has a lot of little businesses that could be eliminated by Wal-Mart.
2. A lot of people will lose their jobs and live in poverty.
3. Wal-Mart does not even buy manufacture from the U.S, so many factories will go down, and the U.S economy might as well fall.
4. STUCK! D:
