PostHeaderIcon I need to raise at least $5,000 for a month long trip to Peru for volunteer work?

Question by : I need to raise at least ,000 for a month long trip to Peru for volunteer work?
I am 14, so I can get a job at some places.(like Market Basket). Could someone give me some other ideas though??? I need to come up with the money by 2015, so I feel like it (could?) be a realistic goal.
I have already saved $ 400, and my parents will probably help a bit. Birthday and Christmas money included, I would probably have around $ 300 dollars without even working if I don’t spend anything. I

Also, is this realistic at all??? I DO have over a year and a half to make the money…

Answer by Ryan M
$ 5000 in a year is only $ 600 a month….get a low paying job. That’s only like 20 hours a week at minimum wage.

PostHeaderIcon Q&A: i need a definition of an ETHNOSCAPE plus and example please?

Question by kmbona: i need a definition of an ETHNOSCAPE plus and example please?
it has to do with anthropology and i am trying to understand how it is used

Best answer:

Answer by Erik Van Thienen
“Ethnoscape : ”

“[Anjun] Appadurai creates the neologism “ethnoscape” to describe a transnational and intercultural phenomenon, deriving from global changes in society respectively mankind. New ways of cultural and territorial reproduction of group identity are appearing within the “global society”. Traditional ethnography and anthropology needs to reflect on this development.”

“Ethnoscapes are “the landscapes of group identity” and they are in particular no longer bound to certain territorial locations. That’s the difference regarding the term and the definition of diaspora. Cultural phenomena are able to deploy a variety of different impacts on cultural formations because temporal information technology provides the opportunities.”

http://mediatingculture.blogspot.com/2006/05/global-ethnoscapes-example-of.html

“The term ‘ethnoscape’, introduced to the academic world by Anjun Appadurai, is useful in examining the linkage between ethnic perceptions and space. However, in contrast to Appadurai, who understands the ethnoscape as the globalised spatial diffusion of ethnic communities, I prefer to follow the approach pursued by Anthony Smith, who defines ethnoscape as the territorialisation of ethnic memory, i.e. the belief shared by ethnic groups in a common spatial frame of origin. Thus it is not necessary for the members of an ethnic group to settle or dominate their ethnoscape.The collective fiction that affiliation with an ethnic group is related to a certain spaceis sufficient. Ethnic groups “make geography” and “produce space” to legitimise their existence in space and time. However, like the temporal dimension of ethnic origin, ethnoscapes are social constructions which can be and are modified in keeping with given endeavours and interests.”

“ethnoscape” : From Ancient Greek ethno- (people) + -scape (Back-formation from ‘landscape’) : a transnational distribution of correlated people

“In the anthropology of globalization, the suffix “-scape” signifies transnational distributions of correlated elements whose display can be represented as landscapes. For example, transnational arrangements of technological, financial, media, and political resources can be seen, respectively, as technoscapes, financescapes, mediascapes, and ideoscapes (Appadurai 1996 :33). The prefix “ethno-” refers to “people” rather than stricly to “ethnicity”.”

PostHeaderIcon Internship interview need to bring press release but I’ve never written one?

Question by CYE: Internship interview need to bring press release but I’ve never written one?
I have an interview tomorrow for a marketing and promotions internship this summer, and it sounds amazing. The information about the internship before I applied wasn’t very detailed, but my major is marketing so I’m pretty sure I’m qualified. but they told me to bring a “writing sample (ie press release)” and I’ve never written a press release or even taken a public relations class.
My friend has written one before and I’m looking up how to write one so I can just make one although I’m not sure what to make it on haha.
anyway I’m wondering is it ok if I just make one up, and what should I say about never learning it?

Best answer:

Answer by MacKenzie
As a marketing major myself, I would recommend doing one on a topic in our industry. Perhaps one of the new social media platforms? Such as Pinterest, Digg, Reddit, etc. I would cover all aspect of it, particularly how that social media could benefit a business. Remember though, a press release is a story of a new event/product/thing not an article… Make sure and make it interesting.

How Do You Cite a Website in a Text?

When writing a research paper, you must accumulate sources to provide factual support for your information. To accurately reference the research and writings of others, you should cite them within your text. Citing websites within a text follows the same rules as citing printed works, according to standards set by the Modern Language Association (MLA).

Instructions

1 Find the author of the information online. If citing an article that has an author’s name, you will use the author rather than the website as part of your citation. If there is no author listed, you will need to include the website’s name.

2 Write the author’s name before or after the citation within the text. For example, “According to Harvey Wise, sea turtles are becoming increasingly endangered.” You may also cite the reference using the author’s last name.

3 Include the actual website for those online references that fail to include an author’s name. For example, if citing whitehouse.gov as a reference, you could cite the reference like this: Barack Obama become president of the United States in 2009 (White House).

4 Include your online reference in your works cited page. This is especially important because the website’s full address (e.g., whitehouse.gov) is not used within the in-text citation.

How to Make a Citation for a Website

Many style guides for citations exist, but most writers of academic papers use either “MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers” or “Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association” as a guide to formatting citations. Unless otherwise directed by your professor or research advisor, follow MLA style for liberal arts and humanities papers or APA style for social science papers. Both the MLA and APA style manuals offer guidance for creating citations to web publications and other electronic sources.

Instructions

Website Citation: MLA Style

1 Collect the information you need to cite the website in MLA style. Record the name of the website author, the website title, the website version number or date, the name of the website publisher, the website publication date, the date you accessed the website and the website URL. You may not find all of this information for each website and you can omit any elements that are not available.

2 Type in the name of the author, editor or compiler, followed by a period. Format it with the author’s last name followed by a comma and then the first and middle names. Example: “Jones, David V.”

3 Type in the name of the website, followed by a period. Format the website name in italics.

4 Type in the version number of the website, if available, followed by a period.

5 Type in the name of the website publisher, followed by a comma, and then the publication date followed by a period. If no publisher is listed for the website, enter “n.p.” and if no date is available enter “n.d.”

6 Type in the publication medium (“Web”) followed by a period.

7 Type in the date you accessed the website.

8 Type in the URL for the website, if desired. Surround the URL with angle brackets, followed by a period. Including the URL is optional in MLA style.

9 Proofread your finished citation. It should look similar to this example: “National Institutes of Health. Health Information. U.S. Department of Heath & Human Services, 23 November 2009. Web. 6 April 2010. < http://health.nih.gov/ >. ”

Website Citation: APA Style

10 Collect the information you need to cite the website in APA style. Record the name of the website author, the website publication date, the website title and the website URL.

11 Type in the name of the author. Format personal names with the author’s last name followed by a comma and then the first and middle names.

12 Type in the website publication date, surrounded by parentheses. Format the date with the year first, followed by a comma and then the month and day. If no date is available, type “n.d.” in the parentheses.

13 Type in the website name. Format the website name in italics.

14 Type in “Retrieved from” followed by the website URL.

15 Proofread your finished citation. It should look similar to this example: “National Institutes of Health (2009, November 23). Health Information. Retrieved from http://health.nih.gov/.

Tips & Warnings

Write the citation for each website you access while you are researching your paper. If you wait until you are finished writing your paper, you may forget to include some sites or not even be able to find them again.

If you fail to cite your sources in an academic paper, your professor will probably give you a lower grade.

PostHeaderIcon Need help for a research topic “social media”?

Question by KYLE: Need help for a research topic “social media”?
I have spent the last 6 hours trying to find a good topic/inquiry question that relates to social media. I’m trying to involve politics in the topic.The course wants us to use books as key research material, which is making it difficult because social media and politics are still farely new.

I can’t find anything on SOPA, or how the western culture affects foreign countries through social media. There’s no books about how political campains are being networked through social media. I’m completely stumped on a different topic that involves social media, and my head is about to explode. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
