Reflection

This video is about my opinion about the use of social media. It tells why social media is useful to us. It allows us to get in touch with people across the world. Remember long time ago, we used to call family or friends using a phone card, which is expensive and not easy to operate. With the use of social media, we can talk instantly using our mobile phone so long as the phone is connected to the web. Also, you can gain useful information from social media, if we use it wisely and properly. There are great teachers on Youtube. you can get free quality lessons on Youtube such as math, science, social, music, and many others. You can learn everything you want. A picture is worth a thousand words! We can watch news as well. For those who have negative impression on social media, please reconsider the use of social media and use it for your own good. As the number of users who use social media is increasing, it is getting more important to the public. People have different perspectives and thoughts, so the way they think about social media is different as well. Some people think social media is harmful to people, but some people don’t. Some people who think social media is harm more than good is because they are not utilizing it properly. They don’t understand what benefits of social media will bring to them. They have to change their perspective before they use social media. With negative thoughts, they wouldn’t gasp fruitful benefit by the use of social media. However, people with positive thoughts on the use of social media think that it is always useful to them. Therefore, I hope people to change their view about social media first.

What can we do with social media?

Script

Hi everyone, this is Hayley. What we can do with social media? Today I am going to talk about why social media does good more than harm. These days, lots of people have negative perspectives and thoughts about social media, but I am going to change the way they think today. As you guys know, most people in the world are using social media and the number of users who use social media is increasing every year. We are absorbed into social media unconsciously before we are aware of it. We have easy access to social media. People are always being together with social media. It is used in various ways. For example, for immigrants or international students like me, my family and I use social media to call across the world. If we do not use social media, we have to pay a number of dollars to call and text each other. However, because of the social media, we are free to call each other. Even though, we can not facing each other, we can use a video call function which is included in social media. Also, the app, youtube gives us so much information. “A picture tells a thousand words”. There is tons of information on youtube. You can find someone is eating. Also, you can learn anything you want such as languages, musical instruments, wood working, machining and so on. So, social media has more advantages than disadvantages. So sign up on youtube and enjoy it.

Iron chef reflection

I’ve really enjoyed the “Iron Chef” activity. It was my first time cooking within such short amount of time given. Before I started this activity, I was so excited. I did not know the ingredients and we had to cook food in a hassle. By doing some research in the internet, my group have decided a menu. I was very satisfied with our food. I thought we were out of time but managed to bake a decent pie. We were all proud and pleased with our result. Without my group members’ effort and teamwork, we could not have accomplished what we did. Communication was very crucial during the fast paced kitchen environment, but we’ve managed it. It was challenging and stressful to some extent, but the result left us with pride and a delicious pie. I would definitely do this kind of activity again. It would take us to a whole new level of cooking and it would also offer us love and attraction toward culinary arts.

I figured out the equations in internet, math text book and one note. Making a nose was challenge to me so it takes long time. I didn’t have any strategies. When I found any equation, I used them many times. It helped me to understand functions, relations, and their graphs because thanks to this assignment, I knew a lot of things about functions, relations, graphs.

I chose “Sunflower Crepes” to reflect on this lab. It was most memorable because it tasted really good. The ingredients were very simple, but it was awesome. If I can cook in my homestay house, I would make it again and let my homestay mom and the kids taste it. I believe it will be a hit! After I finished cooking, I was tired, but while I was cooking it, I enjoyed very much. I do not get the chance to cook very often in my daily life so something like this was a very exciting experience. It was my first time making crepes so I was enthusiastic. When the crepes turned out, it was better than I expected. I think the ingredients were really good and the recipe was easy. In addition to this, I personally really like bacon and cheese. I remember having crepes for the very first time when I came to Vancouver. This recipe reminded me of my memorable moment during the first few months here in Vancouver. My group worked well together. However, there were a couple of problems. One of my group members and I did almost everything so we were little bit tired. I hope next time, we can come up with a better solution of how to work as a group and help each other any way we can. For me, I enjoy working as a group while communicating and socializing together. Also, my English skill is not the best so I sometimes had to ask the meanings of the recipe. I could easily find the definitions of any vocabulary I am not aware of but this consumes too much time, which I would not benefit from. If I was to do this lab all over again, I would read the recipe more carefully ahead of time and therefore finish the lab more efficiently.
