People can use social media to find about things like what going on with the community or for  research to look up for facts for homework. To find jobs to look at colleges and social media is big and companies are starting to use them for advertisement and promotion. There is bad things to social media like being hacked, cyber bullying, and scams that fool people to release their personal information. There both good and bad things about social media.

The good things that social media has to offer is it helps you with networking lets you connect with people and talk to people who are on the other side of the world. Find about what going on with the world or your own community. Research about things learn and to learn about doing new things find out what other things there are to do in life have life goals that you want to do. For colleges now since colleges have Face Book or Snap Chat now that they use to show students how it is in their colleges. They are stepping up their game to get students to chose their college. Social media could be use to look for a job look at events going on or prize that might be offered.

ESSAY

OPTION 1: Describe the difference in Ray Bradbury's tone with regard to Clarisse & Beatty. Support your analysis with examples of Bradbury's diction and detail.




The difference of tone that Ray Bradbury's use regard with Clarisse and Beatty is that one is talk about that she might seem crazy but she is a genuine innocent curious person,while Beatty is an asshole. Other might say that there are similar since they talk about the old things that use to happen they had knowledge about the past so they would share these things with Montag. When Clarisse is talking with Montag she questions him about things that she has heard from her uncle just asking silly questions like a child and dreaming. While Beatty like to give smart ass response when talking to Montag that he knew more than Montag and that Montag shouldn't ask or think about the past. Clarisse is a person who you would talk good about since you like her personality, while Beatty is douche bag who you talk bad about and to let people know what kind of person he is.

When Bradbury talks about Clarisse the tone changes a lot from calm to scary, because Clarisse isn't seen as being normal in that time she is consider dangerous for thinking on her own free will and she is also being watched. For example it seem that most people wouldn't go up to Montag since he is a fireman, but Clarisse does it anyways and starts asking him questions which would be bad like telling a cop you commit a crime since firemen were like cops in that time. After they have their talk it makes Montag think about his past and what he has done up till now which makes him question everyday and gets sad and scary cause of meeting Clarisse. For example when Montag was with Mildred and they talked about how long ago did they meet and other stuff that Clarisse made him think about then he starts to cry. Also how Bradbury describes that Montag is glad to talk with Clarisse since she did open his mind but then Montag asks for her Mildred didn't care didn't show emotions and just said maybe she died who knows doesn't matter,but it did matter to Montag and he was sad and worried like did she really died and why and how asking questions shows us diction and details about the event and tones are changed.

In the other hand Beatty is an asshole who only care about himself. Also when Bradbury talks about Beatty the tone changes you get a bad vibe from Beatty that he has secrets and the details about his looks and knowledge that he has about the past. For example when Montag is sick and Beatty comes by to pay a visit but Beatty already knows what Montag has and just wants to scare Montag and tells him that it happens all the time but keeps telling Montag to go to work amd tells him that he will be miss but he was just being sarcastic. For example when Beatty makes Montag and drive the salamnder and they end up to Montag house and then Beatty tells him that he is arrest and tells him crap about Clarisse and what she cause him to do and calls him a fool and other things for thinking on his own, then finds out that Montag has an ear piece talking to someone and tells Montag that they will find whoever it is and punish them too. Beatty was a bully and harassed Montag the tone was serious and evil intentions which cause Montag to kill Beatty then we all felt good when this happen, because he doesn't like it when douche bags get what they deserved. 

In conclusion Bradbury has a difference of tone between each characters and the most difference is Clarisse and Beatty. They are totally opposite of each other and the tone they have is different from each other. The diction and detail he gives theses character are good, because you can relate it to an actual person like them.Most people will like the best for Clarisse and want to help her out or just talk to her since she seems the type of person wjo you can be yourself and she won't judge you. In the other hand Beatty would be rude to you and judge you and doesn't sound like a pleasant person to talk to or be yourself around him. Bradbury gives diction and details that allows us to heard the tone of the characters Clarisse and Beatty are different.

college fair

The college fair was a good learning experience and I learned some new stuff. The cost of attending out of state colleges are really expensive but they really have great programs. They are ranked pretty high and also that some allow you to go in as undeclared. Some are big colleges but have small class room size and great resources, but i thought we weren't given enough time to fully go to each one and talk about the colleges because of how crowd it was or some colleges left. However it was still a good experience
