GRACE HAYCRAFT-MCKEE 2018 FINAL PORTFOLIO


REFLECTION #1 SELF ANALYTICAL EVALUATION


This semester, regarding actual production skills, I learned I should not procrastinate. Especially at the end of the year. I will use this to help me in college. Instead of waiting until the last minute I am going to finish whatever I am assigned as soon as possible. I learned I need to put school as more of a priority. School first, hanging with friends second. I need to improve on putting more effort into school in general. For newspaper I needed to improve on talking to the writers for my page so I was not as stressed out at the end. I learned I need to pay attention to deadlines and know when they all are. I am going into the college knowing I have to know when everything assigned is due and when all my tests are. I think having this class made me realize how important it is to get everything in on time. This semester I thought I worked really well with others. I thought I communicated well with my staff writers because I got the hang of it first semester. I think it is important to work as a team especially in this class because everyone has strong different views. I thought what worked well was we always got the paper finished and it always looked really good. Comparing to last year, going from a writer to an editor, it was not as intimidating. I think what did not work well was I remember when the first draft was due last year I knew if I did not get it in it be the worst thing ever. I do not know if it is because I am an editor now but I still noticed there were a lot more zeros on the board comparing to last year’s. Being ethical in journalism is extremely important. Plagiarizing and not telling the truth will make people lose respect for you and look at you in a different way. Since it is a group teamwork class if we were to publish one plagiarized article, it would make the whole staff look bad. I thought I worked well with the staff writers this semester. I felt it was a lot easier to talk to them and I guess tell them what to do. I also made an effort to show up to every production day and delivery day. I also was really happy about my article for the last issue this year. Being able to take pictures for the paper was a lot of fun and I wish now looking back that I took more pictures. In addition, I brought food for every breakfast which in this class was VERY important. I learned a lot about efficiency and motivation. I realized I put off a lot of my articles and I did not start my page until production day. It was difficult stressing out because I would always get my article in but it was always last minute. Same more my page I did not start till production day but I always got it finished. If I took this class again with the skills and knowledge I know I would put writing my articles on the top of my priority list. Publications related, my greatest weakness is designing my page. I always got frustrated from the beginning because I never knew how I wanted to layout my page. I learned to calm down and keep switching up the design until I liked it. Relating to procrastination, I will overcome putting assignments off until the last minute so I am not giving myself even more stress.


REFLECTION #2 MOST SIGNIFICANT WORK


My most significant work for the newspaper this semester was my April spread. From getting the idea to actually putting it on the page it all turned out really well. Brook mentioned an idea of doing what was trending ten years ago and compare it to today’s. I loved the idea so I put four different topics for the staff to write about and compare the two. I really liked the topic because it was different than any other spread I have done. Most of the time my page had either something to do with the Kardashians or Netflix so it was fun to switch it up a little bit. On production day, the editing was a pretty easy process. At least easier than previous spreads. I enjoyed designing this page because I did a timeline of pictures in the middle to show what was trending in ten years ago to today. I had the articles on the sides to describe the timeline more in depth. The whole concept turned out the way I wanted it too and I was really happy with the design overall.

PLAYING THE WAY THROUGH TIME Video games have advanced quickly over the past 10 years with the introduction of new tech including virtual reality, first person shooters, and arena style games. Most recently, the game Fortnite has been the game to play. Players start out with nothing but a pickaxe, and must gather materials to build defenses, find weapons, shields, and traps. The arena filled with 100 players gradually shrinks, causing all players to converge at one point. Other popular video games include Call of Duty: World War 2 and Battlefield 1. As most video game developers are steering more toward futuristic themes, Sledgehammer Games and EA are aiming for a more historic theme. While Battlefield 1 was released before Call of Duty: World War 2, many fans of EA’s new game claimed that Sledgehammer was copying them with the idea of a historical game. Virtual reality, the latest advancement in video game technology, allows for users to play certain video games with a virtual reality headset and two motion sensing handles. Some games that are intended for virtual reality play smoothly and run well with the given technology. Other games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, created in 2011 were ported to work with virtual reality systems and play clunky and sluggish.

FROM FLIP TO FLAT

Avianna Hoppes

In 2008, the world witnessed events like the first black president of the United States to be voted into office, the Britney Spears meltdown, the start of the recession, and the end of High School Musical. But in fashion, silly bandz were born alongside snapbacks and waist belts. In response to the the early 2000s, 2008 ditched the crop tops and the miniskirts for boot-cut jeans and tank-tops. Thus, becoming the year of loose fitting, laidback style. According to Vogue, runway fashion was also was similar to street fashion. Models like Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova walked down the runways of 2008 New York Fashion Week wearing bootcut jeans, faux fur, and bright colors. A few trends from 2008 are bright tights and high waisted shorts. Many stores displayed tights in colors pink, purple, blue, green, etc. Slowly, this trend turned into bright leggings. High shorts were also a brief trend in 2008. In addition, many fashion trends included Ray Bans glass or otherwise known as “nerd glasses”, boho headbands, and belts tied around the chest. Celebrities like Kanye West, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Beyonce were all seen partaking in these trends during 2008. 10 years later, many people are wearing offthe-shoulder tops, shoes like Old Skool Vans and Adidas Superstars, and jean skirts. According to Elle Magazine, the X-girl sunglasses, fanny packs, and the color red are going to be the hottest fashion trends of 2018.

From 2008, when most digital communication was done via email, to now in 2018 where most people prefer texting, communication has transformed over the last 10 years. Phone bills and texting have evolved. For example, most phone companies made customers pay for minutes on phone calls and pay per text. Now all phones have unlimited talk and text based on different phone plans, which did not exist on cell phones in 2008. From flip phones to smartphones, this generation has owned some sort of technology. The percentage of teens owning phones keeps increasing. Another major change in communication in the last decade is social media. In 2008, the top social media sites were, blogs, Facebook, and Myspace. The top sites today are Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Youtube. In 2008, there was roughly 300 million users, but now in 2018 there are 2.3 billion users. Chat rooms have become more common and people now rely on social media for communication.

FASHION FORWARD

Television shows influence a big part of culture, and the shows that kids, teens and young adults watch now are very different to ones kids used to watch around 10 or more years ago. For example, a new show that a lot of teenagers and adults are raving about is This is Us. This show represents the modern culture that a lot of young adults are used to seeing, as well as shows modern plot lines that a lot of people can relate to. A parallel to This is Us could be Grey’s Anatomy. Although this show is still on today, it was around in 2008, making the older shows a lot different then the newer ones. In the older episodes, smartphones were not around, and the culture they talk about is very different. Another example of television shows is regarding Disney channel, K.C. Undercover is a popular choice among kids today. The clothes and way the actors in the show talk are similar to the modern times. Suite Life of Zack and Cody started, and in the next couple years the show was a really big hit for kids. There were no iPhones in the show, and the way the actors dressed fully represented the era.

Valentine finished off the year by opening up for the Weeknd, releasing his hit song Prblms, that recieved two Grammy nominations for best urban contemporary album and best rap performance, and releasing his debut album FREE 6LACK. Billboard Magazine described Valentine’s sound by saying, “6lack’s brand of moody hip-hop not only champions the DIY model of hustling but spotlights vulnerability and honesty in a way the emoji generation can understand.” With that being said, Valentine is expected to play at multiple big-time musical festivals like Coachella and Governors Ball this year.

ANY influencers have made their

fame through YouTube, an online video uploading site, by posting makeup tutorials, comedy sketches, vlogs, and singing videos. The site has grown a lot since it was first introduced in 2009, becoming a multi-billion dollar company. Recently they have come under fire for not having enough censorship on what content is being posted. “I normally only get on YouTube for music, but there has been some gross stuff popping up,” said Kyle Padgett, a freshman. Recently, Logan Paul, a popular vlogger with over 16 million subscribers, traveled to the “Suicide Forest” in Japan and posted a video which showed a man who had taken his own life. After finding the body, Paul continued to keep the camera on and zoomed in closer on the man. The video was kept up on the site with no censorship from YouTube. By the time the incident had come to the attention of YouTube, they were too late to take action. Many influencers shared their disgust with the video and anger towards the company for not realizing it soon enough. The incident led viewers to question how well the company monitors what is being posted. “When he saw the body, he got super excited that it was content for the video. I think it was wrong and he should have never shown the video,” said Mackenzie Zoerb, a freshman. Paul later went to Twitter to post an apology, and then posted another apology on YouTube. In the video, he claimed he posted it to show suicide awareness, but many people questioned his authenticity. He did delete the video, but it was kept up long enough for a portion of his 16 million subscribers to see. “I don’t think he deserves a second chance, and he kept talking about all of his mistakes that he made,” said Zoerb. According to its website, YouTube reserves the right to take material off the site if it doesn’t comply with their Terms of Service. “We aren’t telling

you what to create -- each and every creator on YouTube is unique and contributes to the vibrancy of YouTube. As with everything related to YouTube, use your common sense, don’t abuse the site, and be respectful of others.” Last month, YouTube dropped Logan Paul from their top advertising ranks and suspended his production from a YouTube movie. The Paul controversy highlights current issues with social media, and the unintended consequences of a wide-open internet. In addition to the Paul incident, YouTube was the focus of a series of controversies last year, many of which were about children being exploited, and their vulnerability as an audience. There was also controversy about the popular vlogger PewDiePie, who was condemned for including anti-Semitic humor and Nazi imagery in his videos, and videos that made it past the stricter standards YouTube has for its Kids app. These videos featured wellknown characters doing things inappropriate for younger audiences. YouTube apologized for all of this, Mackenzie Zoerb, a but the probfreshman comments on lem continues, a popular vlogger’s video as standards post. are difficult to enforce. For example, because posters are not employees of YouTube, they cannot fire them. It remains unclear as to whether stricter controls will be put in place by YouTube and other social media sites.

“When he saw the body, he got super excited that it was content for the video. I think it was wrong and he should have never shown the video.”

term is used more as a marketing tool instead of being an actual food group. “Flaxseeds are really good in getting omega 3, which, people who eat animals generally get that from fish, but you can also find them in seeds and nuts. It promotes healthy skin and nails,” said Lydia Martin, a senior. Some people would say superfoods promote the lifestyle of healthy eating. If someone is improving the way they eat, they are also improving their overall well being. “I have noticed higher energy levels. I feel like my vision has gotten better and my nails have been

According to Health.com, a website and a magazine that includes many articles on healthy lifestyles, some superfoods that contribute to healthy weight loss are blueberries, broccoli, salmon, and avocado. Each have their own special benefit that aids a person with their health. Having superfoods in one’s diet helps support healthy digestion, metabolism, and heart rate, which are all key factors in healthy weight loss. “Eating on healthier terms as a diabetic, I’ve seen that my glucose numbers kind of level out and are more consistent,” said Joe Harvey, a sports medicine teacher and athletic trainer. However, some superfoods claim to provide a certain benefit more than it actually does. Take Apple Cider Vinegar as an example. There are many ways the vinegar is beneficial to one’s health, but it does falsely promote its aid in weight loss. “In my opinion, I know it has benefits, but taking a shot of straight vinegar can sometimes be harmful for the teeth in the long run,” said Harvey. Taking a shot of the vinegar will not magically help you lose pounds overnight, but it does improve overall health, which is another key in weight loss. 3

Mother of Two

From North, Saint, and Chicago; to Mason, Penelope, and Reign, the Kardashian clan sure knows how to announce a pregnancy and shock the world. But the newest member of the family, Stormi Webster, was kept a secret until after mother Kylie Jenner gave birth. In a heartfelt and emotional video released days after Stormi was born, Jenner shared with the world her reasoning behind keeping her pregnancy a secret. The video features clips of Jenner enjoying pregnancy life, and bonding with sister Khloe Kardashian as they took on their first pregnancy journeys together. In a post shared on Instagram, Jenner said, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how.” For the previous nine months leading up to the official announcement, many speculated that Jenner was indeed pregnant, though it was never confirmed. Many Jenner fans and haters felt as if the move to keep the pregnancy private was a massive publicity stunt. “No, I don’t think it was a publicity stunt, I feel like Kylie would have publicly stated she was pregnant and do some other crazy thing to get more attention. She was secretive about it and made an effort to keep her pregnancy away from the public,” said Julee Negron, a senior. In addition to the debate over the motive behind the pregnancy secret, controversy stirred over the father, Travis Scott. The 25 year-old rapper entered Jenner's life after her breakup with Tyga, who is also a rapper, in late 2017. Many questioned the young couple's ability to properly care for a baby, when the parents themselves are hardly adults. “For me, personally, 20 is a little young. She was literally just a teenager. Normally, you're still trying to find yourself and your purpose in life and you have so much more to discover and try at that age. But, Kylie's life is obviously not normal,” said Olivia Rose, a junior, “So, if she and Travis and anyone else who decides to have kids at that young, are financially stable and fully ready and confident enough in themselves and their relationship to dedicate their lives to raising and providing everything needed for a good life for another human being, I fully support it and think that is what matters.” The social media world still awaits pictures of baby Webster, but most are not holding their breath, considering Jenner managed to keep herself out of the media for nearly nine months. Jenner released one picture featuring Stormi grasping Jenner's hand. Life has continued on pretty normally for Jenner, as she just released a new collection of eyeshadow palettes and lip kits. “I don’t really think the pregnancy will affect her work life since she has the resources for people to do it for her when she can’t, but I could see her maybe withdrawing herself from the spotlight a little,” said Kelsey Garner, an English teacher. She also recently received a rare $1.4 million Ferrari from boyfriend Scott, as a congratulations on giving birth. But, if the world knows one thing for sure, the KardashianJenner family is not going anywhere but to the front page headlines.

American icon, Kim Kardashian, stunned the world once again but not because of the overthe-top half naked pictures, or for scandalous tapes, but this time because baby West number three came via surrogate. Kardashian openly discussed, on Keeping up with The Kardashians, her struggles with her first two pregnancies with North and Saint West. During both pregnancies, Kardashian suffered from preeclampsia, which ultimately pushed her to make the choice to choose the surrogacy route. Kardashian and husband Kanye West were highly protective over the identity of their surrogate, and all that is known about her is that she is African American, a mother of two, and a native Californian. Kardashian’s surrogate gave birth to a baby girl, which they named Chicago, at CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 15. It was reported that Kardashian and West paid the surrogate $45,000 in $4,500 installments, and were required to pay $68,850 as a deposit with the agency.

In the heart of Cave Creek stands Black Mountain, a frequent hiking spot known for its steepness. “The hike has been around for decades. My aunt and mom used to hike it when they were my age,” said Jessica Kotowski, a senior and avid hiker. Black Mountain is home to many cacti, wildlife, and dirt, which is a mixture of slate, granite, and shale rock, to be exact. “My favorite part about hiking Black Mountain is it combines my love of exercise with my love of nature,” said Patrick Riley, owner of Black Mountain Adventures, a trail guiding service. Black Mountain is a steep hike, as the highest elevation point is 3,403 feet. The total elevation gain to the top is about 1,118 feet. According to the hiking app AllTrails, to get to the summit, it takes about 2.3 miles and it is an out and back style of a trail. The entire hike up to the peak is uphill mixed with some flat strait forward paths. The trail to the summit is also rated as difficult on AllTrails because of the rocky trail and steep climb to the top. “Make sure you stay on the trail. It’s easy to get lost, I have before. Try to get to the top if you can, I promise the view is worth it,” said Olivia Cristante, a junior. The view at the peak creates a panoramic view of Cave Creek showing all the mountain ranges and familiar buildings. At the top, there is an American Flag that symbolizes accomplishment for many because of how steep the hike is. Beneath the flag is a handmade sign that writes, “Dedicated to those men and women from our community who honorably served and continue to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States.

The vast wilderness of Arizona holds towering mountains, hidden valleys, and treacherous canyons, all of which are an ideal spot for anyone looking to camp. “I love camping, there’s just something about getting out there and enjoying the peace and quiet that Arizona has to offer,” said Casey Douglas, a senior. Douglas has camped in many places throughout Arizona as well as other states, his favorite spot being in Payson. Due to Arizona’s high geographic diversity, the options for camping are plentiful. North lies the red rocks of Sedona, the forests of Flagstaff, and the seventh wonder of the world, the Grand Canyon. South holds the mountainous wilderness of Tucson and the Superstition Mountains. “My favorite thing about camping has to be the opportunity to be out in nature and enjoy being outside” said Lauren Finley, a senior. Finley has camped in several locations, including the Havasupai Reservation, which is home to a multi-

tude of different waterfalls. Obtaining a permit to camp in the Havasu canyon is considered a very difficult task due to the fact that permits sell out in the first two weeks it opens. Havasu draws visitors from all around the world, all of whom are looking for a permit. There are several places in Arizona where a permit is required to camp such as Fossil Creek and select areas of the Grand Canyon. However, obtaining a permit is not an impossible task. While packing for a camping trip, it is most important to pack with location in mind. “When we go camping, we bring our huge camper, so we pretty much bring the entire kitchen,” said Brittney Dodd, an English teacher. Depending on the place and intensity of the trip, different supplies are needed.

F you want to go back in time

to an early 1950s theme diner, MacAlpines is the place to visit. Located in Central Phoenix, along 7th Street, MacAlpines has been charming the community since 1929. At first, it just looks like a small place that would not even take notice to, but when you walk in, there is a ton of old vintage furniture and knick-knacks that will take you back in time. They have classic diner food including, cheese burgers, hot dogs, and salads. What MacAlpines is known for, however, is their milkshakes and sodas with ice cream. They have over a hundred flavor combinations that you can choose from including, chocolate, peppermint, birthday cake, banana, and vanilla. They even offer some unique flavors that include, dill pickle, licorice, nectar, and hogsmeade. To add to the old fashion feel, they make their milkshakes in the old fashion Hamilton Beach milkshake machines. They also use the classic brand of ice cream called Thrifty’s. This milkshake was the perfect consistency of creamy and smooth. The chocolate flavor was so well distributed with the taste of peppermint flavor. The milkshake was topped with, easily determined, homemade whipped cream, a cherry, and a peppermint candy. Overall, MacAlpines was definitely the best milkshake I have ever encounterd.

Shake Shack is a go to place for someone craving a top notch bu shake. They have three locations around Phoenix and even more al try. Shake Shack originally started as just a hot dog cart located in N are a pretty modern style restaurant, so when you walk in, everythi and very organized. The milkshakes that they offer are chocolate, v white, peanut butter, caramel, strawberry, and coffee. You can also milkshakes in a malted form. The milkshake that is my personal favorite is the black and white milkshake is handspun and consists of a mix of chocolate and vanill was very tasty and pretty rich, so typically only a few bites would sa late and vanilla craving. Shake Shack is always a fantastic place to get a quality milkshake burger and fries.
