    How are cities portrayed in videos:

    While searching for videos I realized that there are two sides to every city. Reporters, inhabitants, people in general will always have different ways of spinning how a city is portrayed to the public. For Detroit I decided to share two videos, one that was the number one related result portraying Detroit as a dangerous city, and the second video portraying it as more of a comback city.

    5) I liked the animals and the fact that i always could run around. I also loved that my parents would always have people stay with us for a long period of time because there was alot of room
    6) no one really lived near us. But my family wasnt quite far all my dads family lived in Boston or New Hampshire
    DETROIT VIDEO:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTQFtNLvcl8
    Detroit is portrayed as ghetto as it gets. Detroit is shown as horribley violent, and destroyed by the people in it. Its also recognized as extremely impoverished and truley left in ruins. This video talks about all the violence and corruption of the D. There is really nothing positive said or shown in this video, detroit is an "abandon city". "Detroit looks like hurrican katrina hit it". The only positive thing mentioned in this video is detroits history nothing positive about its current situation.
    BLOOMFIELD HILLS/CITY I LIVE IN:
    When i searched Bloomfield Hills on youtube, mostly videos of mansions for sale and tours of cranbrook came up.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCTVy7YkuI0
    This video talked about how wealthy Bloomfiled Hills is. It talked about how it also isnt that big and keeps itself very private. Also they say that its exclusive and the weathiest live there. Cranbrook is shown in there and so is the bloomfield hills country club. It was funny because i recognized every house and building that was shown. "Richest little city in the U.S.A".
    FERNDALE:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLyy3kBg0wk
    Shown as kind of unike and has a bunch of places that have been there for a long time, such as a boutique. Ferndale is kind of shown as artsy and in a perfect spot. "A real sense of community here". Has alot of artist and musicians and mostly young people. Another thing shown about Ferndal is that the houses are small and close and everything is walking distance.

    This video shows bloomfield hills being very preppy and luxurious.
    Detroit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snsyzaojS78
    This video shows how bad and dangerous detroit is. It is all of the negative veiws of the city.
    Ferndale http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnHkD6yT2f8
    This is a video of a bike ride through the city and it is pretty reasonable and accurate.

    "Face The Bullets"
    This propoganda poster captures the attention of British viewers trying to get them to join the war. This poster puts the quilt treatment on any man who does not join the war because they feel shellfish if they don't. It also says that if ou don't join the army you will die at home and all the others around instead you could be fighting and preventing the deaths of your neighbors.

    1) What did you see DOWN Woodward?
    I saw the different trials and tribulations the city of Detroit has gone through, and what is good and bad about the city.I also saw that Detroit has possibilities to come back, and it isn't all bad.
    2) How did this experience impact the way you see your own neighborhood/school/city/self?
    I saw that my neighborhood had no where near the amount of history that detroit had.
    3) What had the most impact on you during the trip?
    I thought the thing that had the most impact was the area of Detroit with the really nice houses. It showed me that Detroit wasn't a super poor city and there could be nice areas. But right behind those houses was an area stricken with poverty, and the trees and fences almost blocked that area purposely from view of the nicer houses.

    I don't have a picture sorry. I'm sure I do at home though
    I grew up in a 4 bedroom house, that would probably be considered bigger than average but not MONSTEROUS like some other houses. I also had a pretty large backyard and I also had about an acre or two of forest that connected to the back of my back yard.

    1) What did you see DOWN Woodward? I saw a lot of Detroit that I never even knew was there, like the really nice houses that we drove past and the really run down houses in the other side of the street
    2) How did this experience impact the way you see your own neighborhood/school/city/self? I'm more appreciative of what I have and all of the opportunities that are open to me.
    3) What had the most impact on you during the trip? The wall on 8 mile, It seems like such an extreme and physical weay to separate people by race and there was a very clear line between the two, the side that we were on was overgrown and painted and the other houses on the other side of the wall seemed nicer and better taken care of.

    3.The most common reaction for each country is to raise the tax for citizens and to produce more money. Some other countries make a wrong descion, which causes the depression to influence more people
    4. In Germany, the great depression make the loser of World War I even weaker, people had a really suffering life at that time. The depression caused the rise of Adulf Hitler since he promised to others that he will bring bread to them. Thus the Nazis' public-works projects and their rapid expansion of munitions production ended the Depression there by 1936.
