Please comment here on Monday’s presentations – I’d love to review pros & cons of each team.
I really enjoyed both presentations. Group 1's project was thoroughly researched and was very engaging. The solution was top notch. I think this was one of the best presentations of all the others. Group 2 was unorganized (too obvious) , however very entertaining. i was a bit lost in the solutions proposed and i still have a hard time piecing the information together. But overall, the information provided was very interesting.
Monday's presentations were very interesting. The first groups solution for the block party sounds great. I think it would be a good idea to have everyone from the community come together at an event and help each other in finding the right vegetables and healthy food for their families. The second presentation on the Farmers market was nice. The missing video was quite a funny event.
For the Farm markets group, I think it is quite interesting. It is sad that Staten Island always left alone that it only has one farm market there. I did not know that there is a map and details for farm markets in the website so it is good to notice that. It is also funny about the missing video. The conclusion was really good.However, I think it would be better if there are more details that point to the conclusion in the whole presentation.
Hello, I didn't show up on Monday but from what I've heard from my group, incorporating the idea of a block party to create involvement and care in the community is actually creative and most neighborhood-like. I really like the idea of communities helping each other and creating solutions for one another, with no government involvement. The government, unfortunately, has its disadvantages but maybe it's better this way, this way seems to be much cooler and much more humanizing. Enjoy the rest of the summer! Professor, it was great having a class with you, keep it up!
As for the first group I really enjoyed and thought the block party segment was a great idea. I know that a block party is a great way to reach people because block parties are always giving.When you think about the low income communities or even family oriented environments, block parties bring people together. Also a lot of community boards will vouch for block parties to be giving. Especially for something positive and healthy.As for my group I believe we did okay despite the up's and downs. I give and applaud to Steven for holding his composer though things didn't turn out fantastic. I learned a lot from him.
i think the presentation was good overall minus the maya video being cut off. I think the block party solution was good, everyone coming together to resolve the problem is not a bad idea. The presentation by steven was a great one. The problem and solution was nicely stated overall great presentation.
In my opinion, all the presentations were fairly informative. I love Jessica's and Patrick's group intention to implement turn to the healthier diet, and as a result lifestyle, by concentrating on children. It was shocking for me to see the school menu. Businesses, that are making money on school food, should understand that children are our future and we must protect them and instill them with healthy habits.I also think that schools should have a course that will teach children about benefits and dangers of different food products, as well as how to cook basic meals. As i've mentioned to Professor Bernard, during my research i visited an Astoria farmer market that accept EBT, WIC and participate in Health Bucks program. It located right in the center of a low income area, surrounded by projects complex. The prices were very reasonable and the products- extremely delicious(the vendor let you try their products for free, so i basically had my lunch there). Surprisingly, i have not seen anyone who'd pay with EBT card or WIC (considering the market location). It might be because it's a seasonal market and not a lot of people aware of its location, or they just prefer to shop elsewhere. However, i think if you child tells you:"Mam/Dad I wanna have an apple, because i know it's good for me." a rear parent's heart will denies him/her.
I really enjoyed the way that the first group wanted to incorporate both neighborhoods. I think that from block to block New York and especially Brooklyn can change drastically. I really like the idea of coming together as a community to help each other. Everyone will stop by a block party, so it's a great place to introduce ideas of improvement in the neighborhood. I wonder if it would turn into a fair type, or possibly a market. Especially if they wanted to happen so frequently. The Farm Market presentation was so nicely framed by Steven. I thought the presentation was going in a direction of incorporating community into farmer's markets. I think I assumed, and then had to catch up with what was really being presented.
Monday's presentations were rather entertaining! For the ladies who presented first, I thought their research was on point and overall their problem and solution was clearly identified! The block party solution was a great one because it helps keep the cummunity together and involved as apposed to divided and separate! For the next group, I'm just going to say that it made my evening! Steven's way of bringing the past and the present together to create a solution was nicely done. I still laugh about Lily's "project people" comment and Maya's missing video/question and answer segment but overall I won't say that it was bad...good job to both groups!
