As we examine many different dancers, we can see their attitude towards the dance and another dancer’s response. We will also be examining after the cypher to see what new bonds were made. The goal of this blog is to attract any that it may interest and hopefully create a more unified bboy community within the Bay Area, perhaps even the world.”

I plan on using this blog to explore the amazing elements that make up a good television show.”

Acting

Regina Leon’s blog Stanislavsky and Friends is “meant to guide you through the wonderful history of acting + its techniques. Yes, you are correct–this blog will be centered on the world of drama, but the techniques I will be talking about can easily be applied to life.

Through this blog, I would like to learn about the different cultures in Europe and what are the best ways to travel there.”

Japanese

Peaking into another cultures mind can be an eye opening experience! It was for me, and I would like to share that with everyone.”

Business and Accounting

I will try to put all the regulations about the subjects and also try to rate and talk about the latest photography accessories.”

Jacky Guan explains in his blog Just Accounting 101, “The schools I attended in SF made me love math and numbers.  I solved any math problems that people couldn’t solve.

In this blog, I will tell you the lifestyle of an accountant,  the opportunities, and other information.”

According to Rachel in her blog Unnoticed Brand: How Marketing Affects People’s Minds, she was inspired to “open a blog and post something that related to the major, possible major or potential career that has enough interest and complication to research and write about for an entire semester. The blog will related to  my current major marketing and hope you guys will like it.”

People who have change the live of our youth for the better or even have someone who have complete change their view for the better.

However, having a blog dedicated to researching and using credible sources to explore and discuss the increasing social gap within the American society and how the gap affects children and our future generations is not only an important discussion to have but a necessary one in my eyes.”

I believe that learning about these stages and taking on different perspectives will help one appreciate how children develop and will gain knowledge and understanding.”

Medicine and Kinesiology

Therefore, I am here to share my discoveries of how a nurse is able to use psychology to let patients feel at ease, like how they did for me. In fact, psychology in nursing can actually be made to be be beneficial for relieving the nurse, the patient and the patients family so get comfortable and enjoy!”

In her blog Healing without Medication, Deeshane Nacnac writes, “I am just a regular young lady trying to indulge in the subject of healing without medication. For years, millions of american citizens fail to acknowledge the fact that the government owns the businesses that produce medicinal drugs and manipulate the employees -in this case, doctors and nurses- that work for the HMO’s, which the government also owns, to push their patients into purchasing and religiously taking additional or unnecessary meds and or procedures. Since acquiring this knowledge about the government we live under, I have then found interest in manifesting the truth and benefits to healing and medical help without the use of unnecessary drugs, surgeries or procedures.”
