This article is a good example of social capitol and its effects within America. It focuses on the president's efforts to mobilize the Latino community within politics. The article doesn't go into much detail on why Latino voters aren't active or "enthusiastic" anymore. The president himself is trying to get more people involved in voting and politics, an area in which the general population is uninterested in. The article itself isn't enterprising, possibly because it lacks ... More »

This story is a good example of social capital in both a positive and negative form. The story discuses a group of Latino people coming together in an effort to educate the youth and get them involved with their country. The story is well-written and easy to read. It doesn't appear bias. It also focuses on the lack of youth participation within America, especially in minorities. The organization being reported on is putting forth an effort to change those statistics. The story itself shows two sides of social capital: a group of people banded together in a common effort, while the lack of involvement of the youth in politics.

This piece is a good example of the outcomes of social capital. The article focuses on big money politics, the result of a low voter turn-out and a country that may not care or be interested in its government anymore. The article has good sources that explain what is happening in terms of where the money is going within big money politics. The article has quite a bit of information overall, which helps you understand the issue. It shines a light on what politicians are doing ... More »

This story shows a prime example of social capital; it targets the lack of political involvement/interest within a community. The article focuses on a trend that is sweeping the country. It cites sources that are credible and gives some analysis on why there is a new trend of not voting occurring within America. While the article is well written and has credible sources, it’s not that in-depth on the issue. It leaves me wanting more information and clarification. Overall, the ... More »

This article is framing race, gender, class and geography. The article is well written and easy to read. You can clearly see the author's opinion on the subject. The author is not obnoxious about their opinion, but gets the point across. While the story has a lot of background information, (such as the man's previous mental health history and how he landed in jail), it cites very few sources, (one total, I believe), which makes it less believable, (at least to me). The author ... More »

This piece is framing leadership (Herbert Gans), as well as race, and geography. First, the piece is focusing on the issue of the leadership, (or lack thereof), in Nevada's political parties. The article focuses on the Hispanic population's vote and how they feel they are not being represented accordingly. While the piece recounts the almost humorous account of one Nevada politician’s rude and ridiculous remarks, it shows the negative backlash from the Hispanic population to ... More »

The frame of this opinion piece is blame toward the US Border Patrol, which is making it increasingly more difficult for illegal immigrants to get into the country, thus resulting in more deaths. While the story sites quotes and information from sources, the story lacks overall depth. It explains that numerous bones are found in the desert, but does not state an exact fact for these findings. The author argues that the US is responsible for such deaths. The frame of this opinion ... More »

The frame used within the story was personal responsibility, which is appropriate for the story because it is focusing on the Latino community’s responsibility to vote. The story educates the reader about the issues of immigration, (Arizona law, previous laws dealing with immigrations, immigration foundations), while siting the arguments of the opposing side, (though not as in-depth). It gives examples of what the Latino community is doing in order to stand up to the ... More »

1.)I felt that the complexities of the issue were explained fairly well. The author explained what was entailed in oil sand drilling, as well as the repercussions of it in both a present sense and future sense. It expressed an idea of the predicted future outcome of an oil sand drilling well in Utah. 2.)The article had some depth to the issue of oil sand drilling. It showed an understanding of the history of it, as well as the disadvantages of the action. However, it did not cite any other examples of oil sand drilling’s negative effects other than in Alberta. 3.)The article raised a few questions for me. First, it made me wonder why Canada allowed, (and is continuing to allow), such activities that harm the environment. ... More »

1.) I think the article explained some complexities of the issue, but not in enough depth. It gave little to no background information on the alleged rape of men and women within the prison. 2.)I don’t feel that this article showed the true depth of the subject. Again, it lacked the presentation of facts from the beginning of the issue to its present state. It did, however, state a few facts about what allegedly happened and what the opinion of the Muslim world was. I feel that the story would have had a better depth if the author had explained the issue from the beginning to end. 3.)This article created questions for me. It made me wonder what the exact alleged claims were, as well as who was in charge of the American ... More »
