Uber: A resource for everyone

What is Uber?

You have just finished a fancy dinner in New York City with a close friend and it was exactly what you needed after a long work week. The only issue is its Friday night and there is not a single available taxi in sight. You reach into your pocket for your phone and “unlock” a whole new world. With a quick click of your “Uber” app you are on your way to setting up a ride home-quick access to a safe and convenient way home. But how could it be that easy? How does this work? Continue reading Uber: A resource for everyone

Its a girl!?

My first name, Morgan, is of English heritage and means “born by the sea.” My parents did not have this name in mind when I was first born and were originally going to name me Meaghan (pronounced MEEG-ən) , but the nurse objected to this (because she had so much say?) and told my parents that everyone would end up calling me Megan.

BLOG COUNCIL 8: DIALOGUES

Some posts still do not have the “read more” tab. Please be sure to add these to your posts so our news feeds are more condensed and show more previews of posts. Great job on the blog this week! We loved how many people gave a great background prior to writing their dialogue. We found that most individuals blog was based on a personal interest. We thought that was a nice touch!! We believe everyone in the class showed their creative side through their dialogue. We look forward to seeing this creativity in the upcoming blog.

Jason DeRulo Talks Dirty to Me

I actually got to meet Jason DeRulo after the concert last week– we talked ethics for a hot sec.

Do you think your goal as an artist is to be the most profitable tour or to express yourself and bring the most joy to your fans? Continue reading Jason DeRulo Talks Dirty to Me

Blog 8 Prompt-Dialogues

The prompt for Blog 8 is to create a dialogue between somebody relevant to our course, either directly (Steve Jobs) or indirectly (people who live on shale gas drilling areas), and have them debate or discuss a topic of relevance to the course with somebody who has an opposing viewpoint. Both people can be relevant to the course. This should be written as a dialogue, as if the two people were talking to each other.

Trying out new genres can stretch any writer in good ways.  Aim for authentic voice, creativity, and relevance. Continue reading Blog 8 Prompt-Dialogues

Dinner with Michael Jordan

If I could have dinner with one person, it would without a doubt be with one of my favorite athletes of all time, Michael Jordan. I’m sure we all know who Michael Jordan is, but incase you don’t, let me give you a little background information. The G.O.A.T. (Greatest of all time) is a former NBA basketball player and also one of the most iconic professional athletes of all time. Throughout his 15 NBA seasons, Jordan was a 6x NBA Champion, 6x NBA Finals MVP, 5x regular season MVP, 1x Defensive Player of the Year, 14x NBA All-Star, 3x All-Star Game MVP, 10x NBA scoring champion, 2x NBA slam dunk champion and 3x AP Athlete of the Year. These are only some of Jordan’s most significant accolades, but Jordan not only made an impact on the court throughout his career, he also significantly impacted the corporate world during and after his illustrious career.

John Mayer

Wow, a very open ended blog post! I love it. I like how this blog is evolving in terms of content and style.

I would have dinner with John Mayer. If you know me at all, this is extremely believable. Despite the flak I may receive from my peers, I stand by my statement. But why John Mayer? Continue reading John Mayer
