This visualization is telling you what is the majority vote per county in American for this past election. It uses a spikes size and color to represent the amount of votes and the majority party respectively. The data comes from a github data bank that collected it from sites like Fox News, Politico, and NYT.

I would change the triangles to be bisected into the 2 colors (Red and blue). This would give a better representation to how voting within your county works for presidential elections. You can also use different symbol rather than a triangle to represent it.

People may say from just looking at artifacts of history that they completely know the full story of whats behind it. On the other hand, the researcher needs to know that color changes the perspective of how emotion is conveyed.

When Benjamin says “We don’t find data, we produce it”, she means that most of what we produce is bias to our experience. If you don’t believe in aliens then you won’t produce data regarding them. It’s like when you wnat to program a computer to find a correlation between how many men steal candy from a convenient store versus how many teen aged girls, once more people in general steal from the store the algorithm will predict the more likely offender and risk their wellbeing.

An example of technology being used for bias or inequality would be the use of bait cars. Guess where these cars are normally located? In urban areas where African American individuals reside with little options of making a living. The car gets tracked down by the feds and you can use your imagination of how it when after that. Instead of using technology to bait individuals with low qualities of live because of circumstances that the government have given, we can use it to provie better education and grants to tech companies to employ individuals in areas such as those with qualifying attributes.

My project in general doesn’t use and discriminatory language of any kind. I’m looking for literature of all kinds with how people feel in it ni matter the race. Now with that said, the data that I generate can be used to split race, sex, religion, social status, ect. by the author of the piece or the characters used in it.

The videdo I used was of the 1930s. It used pictures that were black and white and, with help of visual artists, made them come to life with color.

The video was a simple slideshow thatzoomed in or out of a picture to give the viewer a better visual. Black, white, young and old individuals were represented in this video. Some of the color may not be completely accurate but it does the job.

The keywords that I choose will bring you to this site whether you’re searching for 1930s content or great depression era content. Some of the keywords may be labeled as clickbait because I used “African American (Men / Women) Clothing”. A search for such a thing may lead someone to my site.

My project may be alright. I need to find scholarly articles that actually represent my topic of symbolism in literature of how.

I would want to find an interview from someone that lived through the great depression or F.D.R’s presidency. I also need a few pieces of literature that gives imagery to the feelings of people around then.

The document presents was part of a speech that F.D.R made to be reelected. The great depression and the dustbowl dropped the spirits of the American people which he tried his best during his terms to bolster.

The main blocks are <head>, <opener>, and <body>. Within the <head> are the details of what is it and the location. The <opener> states who the audience of the speech is to and <body> entails the speech itself. Inside the body are <p> which denotes the separate paragraphs.

The oper was italicized which is coded in the document at <i> but other than that there was not any other special characteristics in the text itself.
