Internet use

I use the internet for projects all the time and when most of the time i do not give the author credit for the information that i used from them. I also download music for free. I didnt think that it was that bad but the pople that make the site to download the music for free can get in trouble. I guess copyright laws need to be more strict and inforce the law

video I liked

I liked this video because it had very usefull information. All of the information that was in the video was true and accurate. I had no idea that 75% of Cannadians had STDs. The music that was in the video was pretty good too, it was kind of sad but it also made you watch the video. I want my video to be like this one and be usefull.


Since i have started this portfolio awile back I have found it to be pretty hard. I think that the information I have about my subject is pretty strong because it had a lot of intresting facts. I wouldn’t give my draft a good grade right now because I am still trying to get everything complete, so I would give myself a 60% for right now. I need editing with pretty much all of my work so far. I think that if I had some revision on my paper I would have a much better paper because I could use another persons input on what I need more work on.

Grimes, J. (2008). Seductive delusions: How everyday people catch STDs. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press.

            Grimes (2008) wrote a book to tell us about his patients. He tells us stories about almost every STD. He lets the readers understand what the patient is going through and what they are dealing with. He also goes in depth about how the patient got the disease and what has there symptoms are.  The stories that Grimes tells us have questions in them that have facts and answers to questions asked about symptoms, treatment, and prevention. Readers can relate to the stories and also they can receive information on the diseases.


Brandt, A. M. (1993). Sexually transmitted diseases. In Companion encyclopaedia of the history of medicine, (ed. W. F. Bynum and R. Porter), Vol. 1. Routledge, London

            Brandt (1993) explains to us that STDs have existed since the ancient Egyptian days. Greek and Roman have recognized the spread of diseases and they tell us this in their writings. The spread of the diseases were caused by war and travel. STDs also have been spread due to cities being built. In the Middle Ages gonorrhea and syphilis were wide spread. They say that syphilis was brought back to the Europe by Christopher Columbus’ sailors when they came home from the New World. They couldn’t tell the difference between gonorrhea and syphilis until the nineteenth century. Back in the Middle Ages they treated syphilis with the use of mercury. They used mercury for skin lesions and since they didn’t know what the disease was called they treated syphilis as if it was just a regular skin lesion. From the seventeenth century through the twentieth century people would profit money selling useless remedies, people believed that they would work.

I think that this writing project is going to be a little tuff but I think I can deal with it. I am looking forward to doing this project because I think that I will learn a lot from this.

The History of STDs (annotation)

Tim Leach, the Marketing Manager of USA Testing, provider of local STD testing (2012) tells us that STDs are not only affecting todays society, they relate back to hundreds of years ago. In the ancient Greek times herpes was around. They seen it as a skin lesions, there wasn’t any way to test for an STD back then but they could see that it was a real problem. The Roman Emperor banned kissing on the side of the street to try and stop the spread of the disease. The problem never went away. In the middle ages Syphilis was a big issue. They used mercury to try and cure the disease, they would light the mercury on fire to try and stop the disease.
