  1. This tweet shows the amount of Americans who are for maintaining or eliminating federal funding for Planned Parenthood services. I think it is very relevant because this issue may be responsible for the second government shutdown in as many years.
  2. The data was collected through a survey conducted during September 22-27, 2015 by the Pew Research Center. 1,506 adults responded.
  3. Planned Parenthood is a very divisive issue in America today. I want to know exactly how many people that identify as “Democrat” or “Republican” voted to maintain or eliminate Planned Parenthood.

Blog 3: Clinton falls in popularity to Sanders

September 28, 2015 1 comment

  1. This article discusses the recent outcomes of a poll done on presidential candidates from both parties by way of NBC News/Wall Street Journal. Hillary Clinton is only leading Bernie Sanders by 7 points with the Vice President in the race and 15 points without him in the race. Clintons popularity over time is dwindling and while she is still the first choice for the democratic party, she is not leading by much. The article also discusses how Donald Trump is leading the Republican party closely followed by Ben Carson.
  2. The information and statistics were retrieved through a poll done by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal. They surveyed 256 Democratic Voters and 230 Republican votes shortly after Scott Walker suspended his campaign.
  3. I personally do not feel that this survey group was big enough or detailed enough. Surveying 230 Republicans in an extremely conservative state like Texas would be far different than surveying republicans from a more liberal state like Vermont. The article does not say how they spread out the amount of people being surveyed.

Poor Turtle

September 28, 2015 1 comment

1.This article is about a woman in Florida, she got arrested months after pictures of her riding a Sea Turtle. Where she lives is is home to the most important Sea turtle and this act didn’t sit well with people in the community. I choose this article because I couldn’t believe that someone could get arrested for something like this and i thought this would be interesting to others. The women’s bond was set at $2000.

2.This information was obtained through social media. Stephanie;s snapchat photos were a violation of the law and the police say that multiple complaints about the photos were forwarded to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee, which is data in the tweet was obtained.

3. Do you think this crime was serious enough for incarceration?

Living as an Expat

September 28, 2015 Leave a comment

2. The article discusses the best places to live for an american living abroad based off of work opportunities, quality of life, and culture. I chose this article because as a student about to graduate I am contemplating lots of options as far as living and feel that it is good information for anyone wanting to live abroad to have.

3. The article is from USA Today travel. To find accurate results the HSBC surveyed nearly 30,000 expats from various locations and then proceeded to compile the information into charts and reports. The surveys included information about work opportunities, family life, and overall experience to gain information.

4. What questions did they ask in the survey? They say that it was about certain topics, but how did they measure the numbers to find the best places?

Television Marketing and The amount of People actually watching Ads. Blog #3

September 28, 2015 1 comment

This particular article discusses the amount of people that are watching television commercials today and the surprising statistic that television is still the most memorable form of advertising today. I chose this this article because I have always been curious to the effects of television advertising and marketing, and who still currently watches these ads.

The data collected in this article was collected using a survey of 4,199 people and was conducted by YouGOv, based on questions set by Deloitte. The survey was taken between July 9th and July 12th, 2015. It was taken in an online format.

I am still wondering after reading this article if their survey group was large enough and included a wide enough range in age and ethnicities of participants. I believe this article and the study to serve a lot of relevance in our society and the way we market today, but I would like for them to take this study a bit further and introduce an even larger audience.

1. This article talks about the tense but necessary relations that are attempting to be built between the U.S., Russia, and Iran. To nobody’s surprise, the U.S. is leading the talks to try and build these relations, which is why i chose this article, because these talks are crucial in the attempt to end the Syrian civil war.

2. The research in this article about the war and its effects comes from Jeff Mason and Michelle Nichols of Reuters’ research team.

3. I wonder what these talks will mean for the talks Putin, Obama and the U.N. have planned for today, Monday night.

Biden would enter race in 2016 as most popular candidate

September 28, 2015 Leave a comment
  1. The article describes a study conducted that shows that if Joe Biden ran for President, he would be a leader in the polls. I chose this article because I am interested in becoming more knowledgeable about the presidential election and its candidates.
  2. The data shown in the NBC News article is from Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies funded by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal Survey. The research was done over a period of 5 years beginning in 2010. The information was gathered by calling 1000 adults. The researched asked questions about the likeness of specific public political figures and had participants rate them. According to the study, if Joe Biden was currently in the race as a Presidential candidate than he would be considered to be the most popular candidate.
  3. I wonder what the results would be if they increased the number of people reached and if they expanded the way in which researchers gathered data.
