    Paragraph:

    In my field, animation, one of the hardest aspects can be present right from the very start. “What do we do?” It can be very difficult to come up with an idea to animate . I would like to conduct research experiments that can help me to find out what people want out of an animation. I’m particularly interested in what troubles people. Knowing so can help me to find the moral of a story, which often times is the first and most important part of writing a story. It gives full direction for the rest of the project. I should like to do focus groups and surveys to find the answers.

    One paragraph about my research.
    My research topic will be on the differences on different programming languages. There are so many programming languages available today, with C and Java being the most popular, and I will be focusing on that two. Recently, most people are starting with Java instead of C. I want to find out why that’s the case. I will be using analytical research method to do my research since this type of question has been showing up on the Internet for a while, so I should be able to find valuable information to help me answer my question.

      Questions for an ordinal scale are great. Look however, at question #2. You probably want to frame this in a way that does not imply a point of view.
      For example: How successfully does City Tech provide ways for students to get connected?

    A communication question could be: As an immigrant I found this one as a good question for non native people: Do you prefer to not talk in public because of the differences or variables between the language you speak and English?.
    Sense of community question: Do you feel include in your neighborhood? or do you think you are living actually in a wrong urban area?
    Career related: How convinced you feel about the career you are into? Is there any issue with your major decision?.
    Student/ professor relations: Is it reachable for you as an student to communicate with your professor in order to discuss any concern related to the course?

    Assignment 2: One paragraph summary of research topic proposal and research method you are considering. When people are happy and celebrating something they tend to listen to music, when people are sad they also tend to listen to sad music. It gives them a mood, and helps people express how they feel. I would like to do a research paper about how music can affect human emotions, and what type of music one listens to depending on your emotions. I want to see how people real depending the music that they listen to and how does that make them feel, and how does music come together with feelings. Since the artists that made that song wanted to convey a certain emotion I wonder if we the listeners understand it, and are having the right emotions.

    Paragraph

    My research topic is going to discuss the reasons why there is a lack of African American females perusing careers in the animation field. Prior to doing research I figured it may have to do with the family that a girl is from. Another contributing factor may be the societal stereotypes attached to the career. A vast part of the problem can also be a lack of awareness due to the family background or environment. My personal goal is to find out facts that are playing a part in the conflict and see what I can do as an African American woman to inspire others that may have the dream, but did not discover the courage yet to follow their dream.

    The Internet of Things is the connectivity of many devices and many softwares all interacting with each other, but still revolving around the user. With technology merging more and more with our daily lives I want to know what devices and softwares people use, and how they interact with them. Some devices that make up the Internet of things are desktops, laptops, tablets, phones, and the emerging wearable technology such as google glass, and smart watches. Some software include, web apps which are also linked to mobile apps such as spotify, many of google’s services, and api’s. I want to target people who are technology conscience, such as techies but more of the general population who are aware of technology.
