Describe your project
My project is a virtual house made on the site http://www.homestyler.com/designer .
What knowledge did you already have about the project before you started?
The only thing I knew was I wanted to be an architect, so I researched blueprints and based my home off of that.
What new skill did you want to learn coming into the project?
The new skill I wanted to learn was how to use the website and also learn how I would want to build my own soon.
Did you accomplish the goal of learning this new skill?
I did accomplish both of my skills. I learned how to use the site perfectly and this is a perfect way to make my house. I also learned how to use different furniture both inside and outside of my virtual house.
How do you know you accomplished the goal? If you didn’t accomplish your goal, why do you think that is?
I know I accomplished my job of learning about the website because people using the same site ask me where things are and how to move an item and I always help them. I’m not confused and I love to help them because this site was simple to use.
What other skill(s) did you learn along the way?
Another skill I learned was using an embed code. I’ve used it before with other things, however when you use this code you can see my home in both 2D and 3D which is very cool and it’s a great skill I picked up.
What are you most proud of in this project?
The thing I am most proud of is not procrastinating this project. Usually, I wait until last minute to get a project done, but this time I used my time wisely and effectively. Since I did this, I get to have a little break thursday because I have everything done before the due date.
What would you do differently if you had to do the project over again?
This is a interview with my Uncle William. His nationally is African American My uncle talks about how he had to be outside when going to diners and even the entertainment during this time including things like football games and radio talk shows. He then starts to talk about equality throughout the world and how everyone should be treated all the same, no matter what race. Overall, this was a very thorough interview and was very nice.
Emmett Till was a 14 year old boy who was murdered for flirting with a white woman. One August 24, 1955 he was visiting some family in Money, Mississippi. When people heard he “flirted” with a white worker two white men kidnapped him and beat him then shot him in the head. An all white jury pleaded the men not guilty which struck an out-break in black history. At the open casket funeral people saw just how bad he was killed. In doing this the Civil Rights Movement ultimately began.
This is a interview done on May 22,2014 with my uncle William Flamer. We talked about the Civil Rights Movement and his daily life during that time. The interview followed like this:
G: The interview is about… the civil rights movement.
W: Civil Rights?
G: The start of questions is…. did you ever encounter racist people during this time?
W: (Repeats Question)
G: Yeah, during the Civil Rights.
W: What was the year of civil rights?
G: I’ll check….. like the 1960’s/
W: 1960s? Okay I was born in 1951. Wow! Thats way back. I might have encountered, but I do not remember much from it. If you think about it, I was only 11.
G: So you--
W: Yeah, because 51 to around 60 is only about 11
G:-- So you remember people being racist, but you don’t know about it that much?
W: Yeah I was 11 years old, because people were still racist, but I don’t really remember it.
G: Do you remember people during this time? People who had like an impact on the civil rights like MLK or anyone else?
W: Yeah I remember MLK when he used to march and all…. and james brown! He had a radio station where he had talked about black.. black power and blacks being encouraged.
G: Ugh-- What was your most vivid experience in Civil rights?
W: Vivid? Like what was the best thing I remember during this time?
G: Yeah.. Yeah.
W: Ugh…………. I remember when we used to, in my town, the whites use to come through the front door while blacks came through the back in a beer garden or something like that. I remember when we worked as kids and whites at the table and we had to eat on the outside.
G: Oh … the nexts que--
W: Yeah.. stuff like that
G: Do you remember Emmett Till?
W: That the guy the hung?
G: The threw him in the water and they let him drown after they beat him. Umm.. did you ever witness people get injured?
W: Nah… I never witnessed that.
G: Oh, alright. Do you remember any particular entertainment? Any entertainment for black people back then?
W: Yeah… well……………………………………………………….????............. when the get together with their families. I didn't do a whole lot of going out.
G: Was there football games and stuff?
W: Yeah football games.. Oh! Yeah football games, we had both football and basketball teams and sometimes we played against some of the white teams.
G; Did Jackie Robinson play during this time?
W: I honestly dont know, Hes a baseball player right?
W: What year was Jackie born in?.. Oh yeah.. I remember hearing stories where when white teams stayed in hotels for games,,, he could not stay in them.
G: The last question is…. did this time affect you much? Like how did this affect you?
W: How did this affect me? Yeah it affected me because I think all people should be equal and should not be treated different because of his skin. Were all the same person and you should not judge a person by the skin of their color. God created all people equal and its not like one nationality is better than another or anybody else. That not right. Yeah that still affects me today because certain people are down and others excel. Thats not right.
G: Okay.. Thank you uncle
W: Okay.. was it alright?
G: Yes.. thank you--
W: No.. No.. thank you
G: Thanks again and no problem uncle.
Luis & I picked a globe because we want to cherish the world. Since we live on the world, we might as build it. Luis is the one who came up with the idea of making the world. We used a blue hamster ball for the world and will put all 7 continents on the globe. In the end we want it to look like a mini Earth. “ We got the whole World in our hands” You like that don’t you Mr.Gray? Yeah: I know!
