Annotated Bibliographies 6-10

Annotated Bibliography 6 TIME MANAGEMENT AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF HIGHER SECONDARY STUDENTS by A. Vences Cyril written on December 1,2014 is a research paper that talks about the balance between both the academic life,personal life and how time can be managed. The first thing that pops up in our minds when we think about time is how fast it flies by. The main problem that most people have is managing their time during the day. Some people use it wisely by being productive while others just don’t mind how they use their time. Time comes and goes. Nothing can stop it.  Having a positive attitude and changing habits is one step closer to managing time efficiently. Organizing, planing ahead and sticking to a mental schedule would also help manage time. I chose this research paper because this is a topic that a lot of people from all ages can relate to. The author gives out suggestions on how people could possibly cope with time management and how successful and productive they would be with it. I think this research paper is pretty accurate when it comes to talking about students and how they can manage their time. This source is different from the others that I have not researched on because it covers the basics of what people go through like procrastination and cramming for exams.

Annotated Bibliography 3 – Unit 3

  For my final source in the digital unit, I chose one about functional web design because I felt that I would be able to utilize the info from it to help with my built environment descriptions. The article sort of read like a how to manual for web designers wanting to make sure they not only create a beautiful website, but also one that is functional for the average web user. I believe it will be essential to me exploring the website I chose for my built environment description. The only weaknesses that I found with this article or source was that it was somewhat too involved and used terms that I didn’t know or understand because I am not well versed in technology vocabulary.

Annotated Bibliography 2 – Unit 3

  I chose this as one of my sources because after reading Melissa King’s article for my reading summary, I felt that I needed to know more about cyberbullying and the effects digital spaces can have on the mind for my built environment descriptions. This source gives me everything I need to know about cyberbullying across social media platforms and how it can affect people after being exposed to it repeatedly over a long period of time. It also helped me to better understand how serious threats and how hurtful things that people tweet or comment can me and how detrimental that can be for the victims. The only weakness in this source that I found was that it barely delved into what kind of punishment can be given to those who are found guilty of cyber bullying.

Annotated Bibliography 1 – Unit 3

  This article is essentially a how to guide for how to create an aesthetically pleasing web page. It is clearly meant for someone who wants to build a website that is not only functional but pleasing to look at. I feel like this source will help me with my built environment descriptions because I can better see the design aesthetics in the site I chose to analyze. This is very important because the aesthetics of a website sort of set the tone for what type of site the creators want the site to be whether it is professional, fun, or something else. The only weakness I see with this source is that it does not talk about the issue of clashing aesthetics or what aesthetics evoke what sort of vibe for a website.

Sprawl Is Good for You: Annotated Bib 10

Bruegmann, Robert. “Sprawl Is Good for You.” Politico Magazine. N.p., 8 May 2014. Web. 28 Apr. 2016. <http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/05/sprawl-is-good-for-you-106494_Page2.html#.VyLfnaMrLaY>. “Sprawl Is Good for You” is an article written by Robert Bruegmann regarding the notion that sprawling cities are problematic and unhealthy.  He objects due to the success of cities like Atlanta and Houston.  He proves that although residents of the Atlanta and Houston areas are more dependent on automobiles, they also have more access to jobs and opportunities due to the set up of the area.  The high density of cities like Chicago result in ultimately a poorer population by the numbers and more health risks in total.  People in Atlanta have on average more money and demand more space per person, which explains the high sprawl rate.  In that case, sprawl is not necessarily a bad thing at all according to Bruegmann.  The author puts together a very factual and well thought out argument by acknowledging concerns and addressing them.  I would recommend this source to someone studying this topic....

Urban Sprawl, Smart Growth, and Deliberative Democracy: Annotated Bib 9

Resnik, David B. “Urban Sprawl, Smart Growth, and Deliberative Democracy.” American Journal of Public Health. American Public Health Association, n.d. Web. 28 Apr. 2016. <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2936977/>. David Resnik cautions in this article that increasing urban sprawl in large amounts in the United States can have adverse affects in the long run on the health of the population.  Factors such as pollution from car emissions, water pollution, and deforestation all come in to play when dealing with a large, sprawling city.  Why does this problem seem to be getting out of control?  The fact that cities are growing faster than they are growing smarter according to Resnik.  Before cities are ready to take on large amounts of new residents they should first prepare for them, for what its worth.  Cities usually build and make adjustments and adaptations based on what happens instead of what they anticipate happening and that is problematic according to the text.  Also Resnik stresses that land owners and developers must be more selfless and less money hungry.  Resnik’s article is a well-balanced analysis of what’s happening in America’s...
