Our PSA personifies asbestos to display the danger that it poses in many areas. Through the video, asbestos strikes in old buildings, that were constructed prior to its ban on being used in house paint. I think that we could have tried to incorporate more research into the PSA. We made asbestos-man suffocate his victims, but there was a lot of other information about how asbestos can be harmful that we did not include.
I decided to make a website designed to teach people about music theory. Our capstones were supposed to contribute to ‘our community’ in some way, and this was the best way that I could think of to apply a something that I knew a lot about in a way that would benefit the community. The biggest challenge was finding the motivation to actually do the work. In the end, I was able to complete everything I needed to in a weekend. I think that the final result works as a good resource to teach someone music theory from the very beginning.
A global water crisis is definitely an environmental justice issue. In class, we defined environmental justice as addressing the ecological-related problems that could have a sufficient externality of other people, especially those in marginalized groups. Considering that water is both part of the Earth and a fundamental component for human survival and function, any problems that would arise with the water supply or distribution of water would clearly be an environmental justice issue.
