To write a profile on my teacher, I would first gather information about him from the people he associates with most. I would interview his parents, spouse, children, friends, and co-workers about who he is to them. I would want to show some memorable photos friends and family with Collington.
Then I would create a timeline for all the important, funny, and cool things he’s done. I would also use the word cloud tool to generate a word bank of adjectives that describe him. I would also create a game that would loosely generate an idea of what it’s like being Jason Collington. For example, one portion of the game would be to finish fixing computers as fast as you can while fighting off a pack of ninjas. And in order to gain energy, you have to collect soda bottles and subway samiches. With every level you beat, it gives you interesting fact about Collington in the form of a visual.
The Late Show with Craig Ferguson recently had Morgan Freeman read from “A Shore Thing,” a NY Times best selling book by Snooki.
The American Heart Association found a creative way to inform people about CPR. The Hands Symphony is an interactive web page that allows people to create their own music and rhythm. Visitors can click on any of the 12 hands which can clap with different rhythm and noises at the same time. People can choose from genres like “Dance,” “Hip-hop,” and “Latin.” The Hands Symphony is part of the Hands-Only CPR campaign, which encourages people to perform CPR on individuals after calling 9-1-1. The website also shows a CPR demonstration, an iPhone app and a short web film. So, go online and check it out!
NBC came out with a new logo…why? This time, they got rid of the peacock. Basically, they took away the thing I liked most about their logo. The peacock was colorful and cute. We shall see in the next few days if NBC Universal gets any backlash like the Gap did. Here’s their previous logo:
But, at least we can give a sigh of relief in knowing that their logo doesn’t look like this:
One of my favorite shows was the Flight of the Conchords (FOTC), which featured a folk band FOTC on a quest to become famous, or at least get a gig. The comedy show featured Bret and Jermaine, which were also their real-life names, who were recent immigrants from New Zealand to New York City. Bret and Jermaine’s manager, Murray, also works in the New Zealand consulate. Every episode, when the band has a band meeting in Murray’s office, a new, promotional poster is on his wall. Here are some of them:
1. New Zealand…ROCKS!!!
3. New Zealand. Like Lord of the Rings.
4. New Zealand: Don’t Expect too much. You Will Love it.
5. New Zealand, Take your Mum
6. New Zealand – Cool!
