Extra Credit Revision

I was glad that I did this survey because I did realize some things that I needed to do better. I started off by adding more tags to my posts because I understand that this can be helpful for other people being able to find your posts when they search for a particular word. I also saw a need to put a link to where I got my artifacts from in the posts. Another thing that I did was I changed up my titles and made them more specific. Instead of reading summary 6, I put Reading Summary: Content Moderation. One last thing that I changed was I added some of my posts to multiple categories. At first I would just put it in one specific category, but the survey made me realize that it would make it easier for me and for the audience to find my specific posts if it’s in multiple categories. Overall that survey really did help with the appearance of my site and I am very proud of what it looks like now. I would have never even considered these things if it weren’t brought to my...

Public Transportation Expansion For Georgia’s Tourists

A famous man by the name of Herschel Walker once said, “Coming from a small town it was tough to dream big. When I grew up in a small town in Georgia, my biggest dream was one day to be able to go to Atlanta.” It is evident that people not only across the United States, but across the world share Herschel Walker’s dream of coming to Atlanta. According to (Hartsfield), Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the world’s busiest airport since 1998. This goes to say that Atlanta’s beauty and view points bring in tourists from across the globe. With all of the beauty that Atlanta has to offer, tourists need a way to navigate throughout the city. The Atlanta Street Car and MARTA’s train system give tourists an easy way to navigate throughout Atlanta, but unlike other major cities in the United States, this public transportation systems lack of expansion leaves tourists with inconvenient ways of traveling to other historic landmarks across Georgia. Some of these historic landmarks that tourists may struggle attend include; Stone Mountain, Six Flags over Georgia, and Lake Lanier Islands. Stone Mountain, which is located in Dekalb County is a popular landmark in the state of Georgia. According to (David), Native Americans were the first humans to visit and explore Stone Mountain 9,000 years ago.  Native American tribes used Stone Mountain as an important meeting place where they discussed plans on how to avoid the diseases that the Europeans carried. Around 1847, white settles began to populate the mountain and eventually gave it the name Stone Mountain.  To go along with Stone Mountain’s ancient...

Winne, Mark. “The Bluff.” The Bluff: Channel 2 Goes into Georgia’s Biggest Heroin Market. Web. 05 Feb. 2016.   In this article the author, discusses how Atlanta neighborhoods by the name of English Avenue and Vine City also known as ‘The Bluffs’, have been left in the dark for decades. English Avenue and Vine City have been the biggest drug neighborhoods in Georgia for many years. Many residents living here have been begging for the city of Atlanta to help, but promises continue to be broken leading to very few improvements within the community. A famous resident to this neighborhood was Martin Luther King Jr. The author describes how even when MLK lived there the neighborhood was still run down and a haven for heroine. Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne walked around interviewing different residents and he talked to two men that said ‘The Bluffs’ was a neighborhood in which it is so easy to get caught up in the drug lifestyle and how that lifestyle more than likely always leads to death or prison time. Residents of this area this area are concerned that the city of Atlanta will continue to spend money on projects like the new Falcons stadium, but continue to forget about them. I chose this source because WSBTV is a credible source and it is right here in Atlanta where I am focusing my research on Atlanta Georgia. I enjoyed reading this article because it really shows how the city of Atlanta has indirectly contributed to the downfall of this neighborhood by simply not doing anything.

Content Moderation Reading Summary

In this article by Melissa King, she discusses the importance of employing and using content control features in order to limit the amount of harassment that is experienced online. She goes on to say that even with content control features having such positive effects on those that are being harassed, there is still a lot of backlash that is associated with it. Some of the backlash includes the type of criticism that says that people that are being harassed online are being “too weak” or “too sensitive”. Melissa King explains how the general public mostly believes that it is the victims problem when they are attacked online and that they should just deal with it. She says that that point of view is useless because these victims are beginning to suffer from a long term problem. The long term problem that these victims are beginning to suffer from is PTSD. Many people believe that online harassment can not cause PTSD and that the only people with PTSD are veterans. Melissa King says that this is not true and notes that, “long-term exposure to threatening situations is one of the major causes of PTSD”. She also lists a credible source when she gives a quote from Caleb Lack who is a licensed clinical psychologist and psychology professor. In his quote he basically says that bullying can lead to long term mental health problems and that one of the problems that these bullying victims may encounter is PTSD. Melissa King notes that one way to stop people from being harassed on the internet is to use a content control called a...
