The overall of my PSA wasn't to just talk about Gentrification and why it's a bad thing, it was to talk about why I believe people should truly care about gentrification and the effects that it has on those who are having their land gentrified. I tried to also talk about the way that people stop being able to afford the cost of living in these low income areas once newer more wealthy tenants start moving into a certain area.
After doing this project, i have learned about the effects of water pollution. After having done research, I have learned that there are many things that i did not know. I have come into contact with news involving water pollution, but have never thought much about it. However, after researching, i learned about all the impacts that an event such as an oil spill can cause, such as how hard it is to clean up the spill, the high costs the methods of cleanup take, the effects on the environment, such as destroying the area's marine life, and how it can even affect the livelihood of fishermen that depend on the are for a living. I have also seen how religion and beliefs can pollute the water to a ridiculous extent, endangering people in the process. The rivers have been heavily polluted, with people dumping waste from making leather, untreated sewage into the waters, where some even cremate bodies of the deceased in the river. Despite all this, people still use the water to carry out activities such as bathing. This can endanger the health of the people living on the river as the water would be really dirty, and can make people sick by spreading diseases. I realized from this project that we have to protect and maintain the cleanliness of our water bodies, as they are vital for our survival. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wY-pIfY1S2Q&feature=youtu.be
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05PO_SvY25k Summary: In the beginning of the video, we started the PSA with showing of Donora, PA which is borough that has suffered from air pollution. Next, we transition to segment where I talk about how air pollution is major concern today and how it can damage the body. Then, Asaad talked about the laws that were made in order to prevent a disaster like Donora happen again. Lastly, Jy'aire talked about the politicians haven't fully believed that air pollution doesn't cause disasters. In the final clip of the video, we said that power was yours meaning that the people have power fix the world. We chose this because we feel as though the air pollution isn't taken into much consideration in the world today but we want people to know that air pollution truly does exist and people can die from it. Contribution and Role: How I contribute to this project researching necessary facts about air pollution and recording video for the PSA. When it came to my role in the group, I mostly acted as the videographer in the group but I did help out with the research. What did you do well and what could you have done differently?: We done well with our research gathering and what we could have done differently was the video since it looked a little shaky. Meaningful Part: The most meaningful part of this experience was that the consequences of not facing against air pollution was can be catastrophic to the world that we live in.
