One of the HUGE issues the past few years has been bullying in the schools.  Teens from all over are being bullied, harrassed or disrespected and very few people stick up for them.  However, teens are not the only ones bullied.  Sometimes adults are bullied as well for a number of different reasons.  Marsha Ambrosius just released her new video dedicated to a friend of hers.  It is a powerful video.  Hopefully, it will cause people to think about how far is too far. 

A)  If you analyze this video, what was the overall theme?

B)  If you REFLECT on the video, what hurt worse: the reaction of the lady and kids or the reaction of his homeboys in the park (Not the beating)? Why?

C)  IDENTIFY some different things a person could do to help a person in need like in the video, so it doesn’t end up like the video?

D)  Explain how people could be helped by this video, especially if the people who don’t like this type of stuff will NEVER see this video?

One of the HUGE issues the past few years has been bullying in the schools.  MTV has decided to come up with an app for your iPhone (and other phones, downloadable from iTunes) called “Over The Line”.  Teens from all over are invited to confess and share how they have been bullied, harrassed or disrespected and then other teens from all over get to vote on whether it was over the line, under it or right on it and at what point it was crossed.  Hopefully, it will cause teens to think about how far is too far.  How is this app helpful?  Identify some different things a teen might post to their website?  Explain how teens who use this app could be helped by it?(You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

Many people have moved from simply wanting to listen to music online, but wanting to see it.  One of the premier places for music videos used to be YouTube, however they formed a joint venture with VEVO (www.vevo.com) to ONLY feature music videos.  VEVO has been endorsed by many celebrities as the place to watch music, however many people still cling to YouTube and recently MTV released numbers that say more people watch videos on their site than VEVO.  Have you ever heard of or been to http://www.vevo.com?  What would it take to MAKE more people come to this site than YouTube, EVEN WHEN YOUTUBE SAYS go to VEVO? Does YouTube backing VEVO give them an advantage over MTVvideos or is it the other way around?  Why or why not?  (Must be at least  5  COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)
