Guyifesto - Who We Are

Cowan's Response: Today we read about Guyifesto it was all about who guys really are. To be honest some of the facts we read were not true and a bit goofy. But in the end some of them were true. My opinion on this book is that it is not that great but some of the facts are true like boys like sport.

Munir and Jake - Fake News Responses

Fake News
---------                            Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

1. What surprised you?
I was shocked when I saw that people are believing fake news and how it looks pretty convincing.

2.I found the fact that fake news exists is surprising.
It surprised me because I don't understand the point of making fake news. This suggests that in my opinion, fake news is a waste of time and gives no beneficial impact to the world.

3.What did the author think I already knew?
 I did not know that people actually try to lie about news to gain popularity.

4. What changed, challenged, or confirmed what you already knew?
 At first I thought "what's the point?" But the article changed my way of thinking to realize that it is for popularity.
