3. Which story about a workplace accident stuck with you the most? Why?
The workplace that stuck with me the most is the girl who lost three fingers. I think this is a common mistake many made, they may think this wouldn’t happen to them or they knew they wouldn’t do that. Yet sometimes people just didn’t think that much, such as the girl in this incident. She did not ask other to help when the dough got stuck and she did not turn off the machine before she put her hand in there. It is important to pay attention to your surrounding as even the smallest thing can be dangerous.
This podcast “Uncover”, is about a residential school survivor named Rev. Mary Battaja. Mary attended the Choutla Residential School in Carcross, Yukon. “Uncover” will reveal what happened in residential school, how Mary survived throughout the time and how residential school influenced her as a person and her life today. She tried to get rid and forget her past, traumas and continues living. While hearing Mary’s story, I feel deeply sorry for children who went to residential school. I hope more people would hear stories of residential school survivors and make sure the same mistake will never happen again.

In 2013, Extra created a commercial called “Father & Daughter” to promote their spearmint flavor gums. Their target audience is all ages, as people eat gums no matter what their age is. The story is about a father that uses gum wrappers to make origami swans for his daughter whenever they eat gums. It turns out the daughter kept all the origami swans her dad made for her. It shows the bond between her and her father. Different advertising techniques are used in this commercial. One of the techniques that apply to this commercial is plain folks, the daughter and father are just like any ordinary family, they are neither celebrity or expert. Overall, the mood of the advertisement is sad, as it is designed to make the audience sob, which could be identified as emotional appeal. At the end of the commercial, repetition was used. The slogan, “Give Extra Get Extra” appeared, it is a catchphrase that Extra used every time in their commercial.
