Assignment Six

The first set of pictures are of my brother. The bottom picture is the original. I started out by cropping it. Then I converted it to black and white. After that I used the burn tool and brought down the opacity to 80 percent. The second set of pictures are of my niece. The original i on the bottom. The first thing I did was to get rid of the red eye. Next I cropped the photo. Then I brought down the contrast and also took the yellows down a bit.

Reading Four

I am sure everyone has used such tactics at one point or another in their lives.

Very interesting. The world of spoofing, spamming. lurking, and lagging has some very fascinating aspects to it.

It is so crazy what people can do in this day and age. I would never have imagined something like this was possible. It is easy to see how much damage something like that could do, especially with politicians campaigns. I know I am someone who seldom checks past the first page of results a search engine comes up with. It is something people should be made aware of.

Email Etiquette & Netiquette

It is easy to forget the importance of email etiquette in every day business communication. For instance, something like writing in all caps can often be overlooked. I was unaware that doing so suggests you are shouting. This link has information that is useful to understanding proper email etiquette. Some things are more obvious than others. Everyone hates chain emails, so it is suprising it would go against email etiquette to send them.

Netiquette is simply etiquette to be used when dealing with people online. Unless a person spends the majority of their time online they are liable to be unaware of these rules. The first rule is to remember the human. It can be easy to hide behind the computer and say things normally not said in person. It is a good point to remember what you say is stored online. It can come back to get you if you aren't going to follow the etiquette.

The other rule I think is very imortant to remember is to respect the privacy of others. Again, it is easy to forget when you are online you are still dealing with other people, so it is important to treat them as such.

USU College of Business Raises Money for Opportunities in South America

LOGAN, Utah- Utah State University College of Business students are rasing money to help develop business opportunities in South America.

USU professor David Herrmann said his spring semester MHR 3110 students are raising money to donate to possible business opportunities in South America. Hermann said the summer section of the course does a study abroad where they are presented with potential business models from the locals and the students get to decide where to distribute the money.

"The students get an educational opportunity and a chance to refine a business model," Herrmann said. "They also get the chance to provide hands on humanitarian service."

USU student Dan Allen said the spring semester students will be setting up booths on campus through out the spring semester for anyone interested in donating money. He said they are also setting up a Web site for anyone who wants to donate large sums directly.

"Every little bit helps," Allen said. "If someone can only give a buck that's okay."

Herrmann said it is rewarding to give an opportunity to people who otherwise wouldn't have one.

"These people don't have access to capital like we do," Herrmann said. "They are people with dreams."
