Slide 1: My name is Rymir Vaughn and this is my Media Design Ignite presentation. I'm going to talk about my projects from this year as well as some tips.
Slide 2: My Q1 project was the website. I didn't have a lot of trouble, but I did have a problem with the site builder and I ended up switching from Wix to Weebly. To make it better I added pictures
Slide 3: The pictures made it more visually appealing and easier to look at. I didn't just do this for the grade, but for future applications. I'm hoping to stand out by submitting a website instead of a normal resume.
Slide 4: My project was successful because I think I got my point across and uploaded my best projects over the past couple years. My grade was also decent and I might keep adding to it.
Slide 5: My quarter 2 project was the computer science project, I enhanced the knowledge I already had of coding. At end I needed to apply my knowledge and complete an activity. I made a screen cast of that activity
Slide 6: My goal was to get better at coding. I learned more about coding and different ways to make it easier and faster. Especially, since I've done some before, but not a lot
Slide 7: It was a king of a success. In the video there were noises in the background and I didn't like that, but besides that it was good. Also during the coding I ran into a lot of problems
Slide 8: My quarter three project started off as an advanced coding project that we would be entered in the TEC COM, but it didn't work out, so I ended up just making edits to the project we were going to make the edits to.
Slide 9: The goal was to not only make it better, but have it correspond with a light system that'll tell you if it wrong or not.
just changing the game site.
Slide 10: It wasn't a success in my eyes because of the fact that we didn't go through with it completely. We ended up scraping it and really just making changes to the game site.
Slide 11: The project I decided to revise was my quarter 3 project. All I did was change the colors so it looked better. It looks more visually appealing now with more consistency and has a color scheme.
Slide 12: Cyrus shared the code with me and all I did was change the color scheme of the level.
Slide 13: As you can see the color scheme wasn’t bad, but I wanted to change it and make it better. So, I changed the colors from blue and yellow to blue and silver/grey.
Slide 14: I would have to say quarter 2’s project was the height for me. I learned a lot from the computer science project and I enhanced my skills as a coder and programmer.
Slide 15:Something I could have improved in is getting my checkpoints in on time because that killed my grade last quarter.
Slide 16: I could use the computer science. I say this because I could possibly enter a career in electrical engineering. So this could help me possibly later in life.
Slide 17: I would have liked to do image editing. There were just other things that I wanted to do that I was more interested in. I probably would've done it for Q4 if this wasn't the project we had to do.
Slide 18: I would say that the first thing is submit your assignments on time. My grade took a hit because of not submitting the assignment at all. So, if you want a good grade submit.
Slide 19: Don't be afraid to ask question. If you don't get something ask. This could also help in other classes.
Slide 20: If you do something you like doing you'll actually do it. Like if you do image editing, edit an image you like or make it like something you like. You're grade will reflect it.
How does the nitrogen cycle naturally?
Goes from the atmosphere → to the nitrogen-fixing bacteria in soil or nodules in plants → turns into ammonium → that either turns into nitrifying bacteria (nitrites; nitrates) or straight to plants → consumed by animals or turns into denitrifying bacteria → back into the atmosphere or goes to decomposers or secondary consumers → turns back into ammonium
What are the sources of the nitrogen?
Natural sources of nitrogen include the atmosphere, instream sources (e.g. salmon carcasses and litter fall), and vegetation (e.g. from N-fixing plants). Also be produced by natural biogeochemical processes that occur in watersheds, rivers and streams, such as the decomposition of plants and organisms.
What are the sinks of the nitrogen?
destruction in the stratosphere
How does the food system affect the cycle of the nitrogen? What impact does that have on our ecosystem?
Primary consumers take in the nitrogen that has been distributed to the producers and the nitrogen that the primary consumers took in is either passed to the secondary consumers that eat them or to decomposers after they die. It keeps the nitrogen flowing constantly because every organism dies eventually, so that nitrogen that was originally consumed by the primary consumers will eventually return to the place that it got the nitrogen from
What role does nitrogen play in the food system? How is the nitrogen used and transformed in the food system?
Without nitrogen, producers, such as legumes, wouldn't be able to help the soil they're in gain the benefits from photosynthesis. Nitrogen plays a big part in photosynthesis because the nitrogen-fixing bacteria inside soil goes hand in hand with plant. If the nitrogen didn't exist or were in small amounts the bacteria wouldn't benefit from it and the plant wouldn't be as healthy as it would with the nitrogen.
How does the ecosystem respond to the changes caused by the cycle of the nitrogen?
Plants become healthier because nitrogen is a limiting nutrient.
What changes need to be made to maintain the health of our ecosystem with regards to your specific matter?
A (brief) description of your project and project goals, including what you hoped to learn through completing the project.
My main project goal was to make a portfolio of my work. Also along with that I put my résumé and a page about me to further my website’s visitors of me. Something that I learned hoped to learn by completing this project was how to build a good website. Which did happen.
A (brief) description of the process you went through to complete the project.
First, I had to choose a medium to make my website. At first, I chose Wix, but after some technical difficulties I switched to Weebly. Then, I went through and completed my checkpoints one by one and completing my home, résumé, about me, and projects pages.
Any successes and/or failures you encountered. If you describe a failure, explain how you overcame or worked around that failure.
I encountered a failure when I tried to use Wix and I couldn't work it. I overcame that failure by switching to Weebly.
What you actually ended up learning through the completion of the project.
I learned that I should stick to what I know.
What you learned about yourself through the completion of the project.
I didn't really learn anything new about me.
How you would do this project differently if you were to do it all over again.
I would start with using Weebly because I’ve used it before, and it works well. My project would’ve been, so much better.
Any tips or hints for others attempting this project.
Use what you know best, and if you don't know how to use any of them use what seems easiest.
What this project inspired you to do next.
It inspires me to do it again, but to a higher level than I did before.
Proper citations for any work that is not yours
- All of my work was original.
In this project, did the message dictate the medium or did the medium dictate the message?
The medium dictates the message because I have to showcase my portfolio through the website.

Regala un yelmo de oro y de diamantes
A mis sueños errantes.
Es para mí: suspira, ríe y reza.

hace que regocije al mundo entero
la tristeza inmortal de ser divino!

Yo no pude hacer comprender a alguien,
No importa cómo mucho yo intentó.
Hasta eso día mágico eso ella volverse mío.
Yo nunca sabió como ella de verdad sentido dentro.
Mirar en nuestro ahora,
Uno año más tarde y ella es el amor de mi vida.
¿Quién conoce eso una amistad podría volverse algo muy amable?
The person who I chose to do is my dad. The thing that makes this project so emotional for me is that my dad passed away not too long ago, September 24 of this year in fact. I chose to do my dad because he was one of the most important people in my life, if not the most important. He was the closest person to me by far I don’t know of anyone who was like him, and it hurt me so much when I found out that it happened, and what made it even worse was that he was on his way down to see me and my sister when it happened. I will forever regret not saying “I love you” before he left the day before. He wasn’t really perfect I think the reason that he died was that he wasn’t perfect, but he was the perfect dad. He did everything that he should have did as a dad. I never really knew anything about his personal life, but I didn't really care about that. I know he didn't have a real career, but he always had a job. For as long as I can remember he had a job that provided for me and my family. He was also one of the toughest people I knew. My dad would put his life on the line to protect me and my family. I really looked up to him for that. No matter what anyone says I think that my dad was perfect, sure he had his flaws, but who doesn't. I’m always going to love him and miss him very much.
My dad meant everything to me. He was the one who taught me what I know today. I have nothing against my mom, but I feel like my dad was just a more dominant figure in my life. He’s the -reason why I am such a big sports fan. From an early age he exposed me to sports, mainly football. One of the main reasons why I’m a diehard Eagles fan was him. Whoever took my dad away from me took everything away from me. He was the only one who understood me and I was the only one who understood him. Sure he got on my nerves, but he was my dad, so I really didn't care because I loved him so much. I know that I said that he means everything to me, but he meant more than everything to me, if that is even possible.
I decided to create my sugar skull in remembrance of my dad because it was so recent, referring to his death. He was such an inspiration on my life. Most of the things that I do revolve around him. Like he taught me different things that a female couldn’t teach. There was nothing that I couldn’t tell my dad. I regret not talking to him more than I did. I can't even tell him the things that I wanted to tell him as I got older. Before this abrupt end to my dad’s life, I was going to talk to him more than I did. He was always at my house although he didn't live with me. This gave me the satisfaction of having my dad around more than other people whose parents are separated. Overall the main reason why I decided to make my sugar skull in remembrance of my dad because of how recent his death was, how big of an inspiration he was, and to get over all of the regrets that I have.
My sugar skull represents my father because the colors on the skull are the colors of our favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles. My dad and I were diehard Eagles’ fans. He would always come to my house and watch the games with me, sometimes spending the night if it was a very late game. There has been countless times where me and him would watch the games that come on throughout the day just to see the Eagles play. I grew up watching the Eagles and he was the main reason for that. There is also a little blue patch that is on the side of the skull. I only did this because there wasn’t any more black paint, but it does relate to my dad. His favorite color was blue, so I decided to use the blue paint to fill the rest of my sugar skull. The blue is too light though, his favorite color is like a navy blue color. My dad really wasn’t the person to go over and beyond with things, so that’s the reason my skull is so plain. If it was up to him he would have left the skull all white and not had did anything to it. If it wasn’t required to decorate it I probably wouldn’t have done anything because that's how he would have wanted it. I decorated my mask the same way with the same colors. My dad probably would have just colored it blue and left it at that.
“Dia de los Muertos” opened up my eyes to celebrating the life of a pasted one by having me realize that you shouldn’t mourn the death of people, but celebrate it. Really I already knew that I should do this. At his funeral I actually said that. While everyone else was crying all I could do was smile, not only to keep from crying, but to show that we should be celebrating his death. I’m extremely hurt and sadden by this, but to this day I haven’t cried, well at least not yet. I don’t think I’ll do everything that is usually done on “Dia de los Muertos”, I don't know if I’ll do it at all, but I definitely know that I’m not going to mourn the loss of my dad, but celebrate it.
Me llamo Rymir Vaughn y yo tengo quince años de edad. Yo soy el hijo de William Vaughn. Mi padre fue de Filadelfia, específicamente el oeste de Filadelfia. Él vivió con su madre y dos hermanas. Yo nunca supe eso su padre está no presente. Él fue muy cómico. Él fue un trabajador dedicado. Él fue un hombre diligente. Mi padre fue un hombre bien
Yo estoy muy triste. Yo quiero mi padre aquí con mi otra vez. Yo necesito más tiempo con mi padre. Amo a mi papá y lo extraño. Mentalmente yo estoy dolido. Yo necesito a deco te amo uno más tiempo. Eso es el más importante cosa a me. No diciendo te amo estoy me lastima. lo extraño tanto.
In this interview Clifton Mabry, a 68 year old man from High Point, North Carolina, reflects on his life and important events that happened in his life during the 60’s. He also touches on some of the events from the Civil Rights Movement and how it affected his life in mostly positive ways. This interview doesn’t really touch on key components of the Civil Rights Movements because it is told from the point of view of Northerner, but it does get into significant events that occurred.
Emmett Till was brought up in this interview. Emmett Till was a fourteen year old boy that was murdered and tortured for flirting with a white woman. His accused killers were put on trail, but were acquitted by an all white male jury. His death sent shockwaves and opened eyes across the world because he was nothing, but a child who was ignorant to the fact that behaving the way he did would be problematic. Mentioned previously, his accused killers did eventually admit to killing Till, but were never put on for retrial.
Something else that was mentioned in the interview was the riots on Columbia Avenue. These riots began when two Philadelphia police officers responded to a domestic dispute at 22nd and Columbia. The dispute ended up drawing a crowd that attacked the police officers with bricks and various forms of debris, but the officers didn’t get attacked because of their efforts to stop the dispute, but because of rumors and misleading information. The misleading information was that a white police officer beat a pregnant black woman to death. Looters took over stores, crime rates skyrocketed, and business were lost or destroyed. Once the riots were over and North Philadelphia was restored the long lasting effects of the riots began to take place.
The murders of two white males and a black male was another thing mentioned in the interview. The three men killed were Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman, and James Chaney. These three men were on there way back from a trip to Philadelphia. While on their way back deputy sheriff/KKK member Cecil Price pulled the trio over for speeding. He held the men in custody while the rest of the Klan set up for the murder. Once the Klan finished they were let go. Later down the road the trio was closed in by two Klan cars and the three were shot in their heads and put into hand made graves.
Rymir Vaughn: “Good afternoon Mr.Cliff.”
Clifton Mabry: “Good afternoon.”
RV: How. “How you doing today?”
CM: “I’m alright.”
RV: “Well if you don’t mind I would like to ask you a few questions.”
RV: “So, what are some things that you remember about the 60’s?”
CM: “Ohhh... I remember the best things to me were.. the dances, the.. not too much school, you know what I mean we were really do too much in school, but the friendships that I had with the people that I grew up with you know, and friends of uh my family and the friends of my friends family you know. We all got along you know and it was all one big happy family. Put that down there hahaha.”
RV: “Uh. Is there anything that you remember like about the historical aspect of the 60’s?”
CM: “Uhh let’s see. Ohh my goodness! Yes, I remember the riots on Cecil B. Moore, but it was it was Columbus Av.. uh Columbus uhh Avenue then, but the riots. Well, I think that was sixty in sixty-three sixty-two somewhere around there. And they really tore up the whole from 7th street to uhh just about 30th street.They tore up everything. Just like the riots in L.A. where they burned down everything they did the same thing here. And also that we had a police commissioner that would gung ho. He used to walk around with his billy club in his combull bun. You know what a combull bun is?”
RV: “No. Not at all.”
CM: “When he put on a tuxedo he puts a little like a belt like, but it's not a belt. Its a accessory.”
RV: “Oh. Oh. Oh.”
CM: “Its called a combull bun he used to walk around with his billy club. His name was Frank Rizzo, and uh we had uh when he was the police commissioner we didn’t have a whole lot of crime, but now we ya mean we den’ stepped it up now. I don't know what these poli. police commissioners is doin’ now.”
RV: “Ok. So, are there any similarities or differences you notice about the 60’s and now?”
CM: “Naw. No similarities whatsoever. Things have changed so much people have speed it up. They have speed it up whereas there is no respect in the world. Children are all raised by single parents now. Whereas back then you had two parents. You know you don't have that today in most houses.”
RV: “Yeah.. So, has the 60’s had an impact on your life now?
CM: “On my life. Sure. It has whereas I’ve made it this far. I’ll be sixty-nine memorial day. So, therefore I made it this far, so it had an impact. I was watching my P’s and Q’s. Hahaha.”
RV: “So, what part of the 60’s do you remember the most and why?”
CM: “Uh. let’s see. Oh the part that I remember my first child being born in sixty-three. That’s the really part that I remember. That’s for me. Because I became a dad. You know I was too young to really understand it fully, you know I’m just saying what I was supposed to do, but that was a proud moment for me.”
RV: “So, if you don't mind I would like to get into the historical aspect of the 60’s like the civil rights movement and things like that. What do you remember about Martin Luther King?”
CM: “Uhh lord. Back then we really didn’t know anything about him because we really didn’t focus ourselves on this because we would focus ourselves on other things like uhh every now and then someone would be playing sports, but sometimes we’d be gang warin’ that's what we use to do back in the day. Everybody claimed a corner. In other words like 15th and Oxfr.. uhh.. yeah 15th and Oxford, 15th and Montgomery, and stuff like that, Marshall and Master, 12th and Oxford, 12th and uhh Poplar. These is things that we did back in those days, we claimed corners. You know we bond together you know the people from the neighborhood we bond together to protect each other.You know from other people that live this place and live that place. They would come or we’d go over there you know. Its just that I mean its a different thing then what y’all do today what y’all do today,”
RV: “ So, what about the KKK you remember anything about them?
CM: “Oh my goodness. I heard. Uh what’s this boy. He whistled at a white woman and they uh.. killed em’ they hung em’ I think he was either 12 or 15.”
RV: “Emmett Till”
CM: “Emmett Till. Thats about you know basically about you know as far as knowing anything about that you know. And I believe the three boys 2 white boys and one black boy that they found them in Mississippi I believe it was Mississippi. I’m not sure, but they killed them. Civil Rights Movement you know, but basically nobody really paid attention to that you know cuz being living in the North we didn’t have the problems that they had where somebody could come in the middle of the night and come in you're house and take you out there and hang you we never had that type of thing.”
RV: “So, life in the North was it signif… significantly different from life in the South?”
CM: “Yeah. Yes because I was born in High Point, North Carolina right, and it's basically…. a.. what would you call it like a little country a little country little part it's not like a real big part. Its like say uh Norristown that’s about the size of it so, therefore when my parents brought me up here so, it was entirely different thing entirely different and I had to get used to and I had to grow in order to be accepted.”
RV: “What age did you move from High Point?”
CM: “Uh. I was about 10”
RV: “10… So, was there did you or your parents face any type of racism down when you were in North Carolina”
CM: “Oh yeah. I was little kid, but I didn’t understand it I didn’t understand it, but it was there, but like I said I didn’t understand what was going on, but they knew, but I didn’t understand because I was too young to distinguish from racism from white black and white I was too young I didn't know.I figured everybody was the same.”
RV: “If you could be at one of the signfic.. signi.. significant events that happened back in the 60’s or during the Civil Rights Movement which one would it be and why would you go there?”
CM: “Thats a hard one there. Thats a hard one. Like I said you can quote me we didn't really pay attention and ….. I was like uhh 16 17 18, so therefore I really didn't paid attention to the uh politics and things like this or whatever the Civil Rights and things i didn’t pay attention to that because it didn't at the because in my mentality at that age and where I’m living in the North I didn’t.. I didn't really feel threatened by anything like that.”
RV: “So, how did your parents handle life as African Americans when you were living in the South?”
CM: “Ohh man. I guess they did the best they could you know with what they had you know. They had the minimal jobs you know they they they worked for the um white folks doing house work or whatever, but uhh we made it through we made it through. Thats the best I can say hahaha best I can say we made it through cuz here I am living testament you know here I am. Ya dad old enough he could’ve told you.”
RV: “Well thanks Mr.Cliff.”
CM: “Hey no problem no problem. Always a problem.. Always a pleasure always a pleasure.”
What is the most exciting thing you have done, so far in your life?
“Umm… the most exciting thing I’ve done in my life. Well it’s something I do more often, just make people laugh. Like honestly, something I do something I love, and yeah when people smile I smile. That’s kinda weird, but yeah.”
What was the happiest moment in your life?
“Happiest moment in my life… Umm…. Happiest moment in my life was probably when…. Like I just… I actually don’t have one. I can’t think of one, I have so many memories, but just happiest moment is to see my mom, I guess. You know my mom has been like a big person in my life, so yeah.”
What’s the best thing about being a teenager, and what’s the worst?
What was the happiest moment of your life?
“When all my children was born.”
What does your future hold?
“Everything that I have to offer to myself, what I put into my life is what I will get out of it.”
What’s the most exciting thing you have done in your?
