The Most Fun Assignment I’ve Had.

Part 1.

1. Tell us abut your experience using ZapparDetail creating the Zapcode and Zap!-tache.

Last week’s Wednesday was my first time to use Zappar. It was really interesting. After I finished editing the Zapword, just used Zappar to scan the Zapcode, the content of my Zapword was appeared. It was an amazing experience, which sounds like magic. The most interesting thing was Zap-tache. I sticked a small piece of paper with the shape of mustache on my face, between my nose and my mouth. After I scanned my face, a mustache appeared on the screen which looks like a real one. It was a fantastic experience to learn new things and have fun.

2. Browse some of the Zapsvia the menu and get at least two (2) to work by finding the picture on the web so you can zap it. Which ones worked out for you and what does it do when interact with it successfully? In cases where you can record a photo or video, do so and include with your post.

These two pieces of work worked out for me:

  • Browse Zaps ==> A-Z ==> Harry Potter ==>Undesirable No.1
  • Browse Zaps ==> Advertising ==> HeyBigFish

1) A video of Harry Potter showed up with music which made me feel mysterious when interacted with the APP successfully. After that, I could take a photo of the T-shirt with Harry Potter and white words and black background.

2) A video of a big fish appeared with music. After the video finished, I could click the button and took a photo with a fish. I can choose different kinds of fish and change the position of the fish. What’s more, I can type my name on it.

3. If UB was to use a Zapcode for its print marketing brochures to prospective students, what would you suggest? On what kinds of pictures or pages would the Zapcode appear and what would it unleash when interacted with?

Some pictures and photo albums show the beautiful scenes of our school. Videos shot at different places in UB can also express the diversity of students’ lives. The school song, Happy, is a great choice. The most significant one is the contact information of ISS. It can help new students to familiar with our school. The web link and events of every week would let students know a lot about our school. Therefore, these items are important. All the contents of the Zapcode would be appeared. The content would be as same as the time people edit it. It’s convenient and all the students would like it.

The 50th Anniversary of the Publication of Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein’s After Auschwitz

 

 

 

 

 

“I thought no one would even read the book,”

“I’m deeply moved my book still has an audience and the university that is most important to me is going to commemorate  its 50th anniversary.”

                                                                                     –Richard L. Rubenstein

 

“The notion that theologians lead uninteresting lives couldn’t be further from the truth.”                                                                                                                                                                                          –Richard L. Rubenstein

 

Commentary:

 

Lots of people attended this event. After Auschwitz is an extraordinary famous book. One of my friends, Jing, participated to this anniversary with me when she heard that it was an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the publication of Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein’s After Auschwitz.

I love the voice of Kimberly. It’s clear and fair-sounding.

Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein graduated from Harvard University, which surprised me a lot. I consider that I have no chance and ability to go to Harvard University, but I still need to improve myself continually. Never give up.

Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein is an old but intelligent gentleman. Although sometimes he cannot remember what he wanted to say, he is still respectable for his contribution to Holocaust and genocide studies.

My Home City

My Home City

I’m from Songyuan City, Jilin Province, located in the northeast part of China and in the beautiful banks of the Songhua river with abundant natural resources and fabulous scenery.  It’s a district where the cultivation of rice and the breeding of fish flourish.

With the development of economy, Songyuan City ranked third in Jilin Province. Furthmore, it was granted the honor as one of the ten most charming cities in the northeast part of China. Mentioning Songyuan City, the culture and the places of interest should never be forgotten.

    The Songhua River

A famous river divides Songyuan into the north and the south part, along its bank forming two amazing riverside parks. That is the Mother River of Jilin Province-Songhua River.

Songhua River, ranks the fifth longest river in China, runs about 1897 kilometers long and covers a drainage area of 545,600 square kilometers. The source of the river is a crater lake called Heavenly Lake with an elevation of 2189 meters at the top of the Changbai Mountain. This river confers resources and wonderful scenes to located people. Fish, drinking water, water for irrigation, and different scenes in different seasons.

The Songhua River in winter is much more alive than a summer bathing beach. It’s frozen hard with ice which thickness nearly one meter, turning it into a huge playground for a myriad of ice sports.

You can go skating and ice sailing, ride in ice vehicles and play ice skates. But if you want to do something really different, you can get into a swimming costume and join those enthusiastic people, young and old, diving and swimming in a pool of icy water dug out of the frozen river.

Places I LOVE in China

 

Places I love in China

As a Chinese, I’m proud of the natural scenes in my country. I collect 6 pictures to show the places where I love the most in China. Each picture represents one place. They are Great Wall of China, West Lake, Jiuzhaigou, Penglai Paviolin, Dalian Laohutan Ocean Park and Taishan Mountain respectively. I went these places at different times, but I have the same feeling that the scenes are extremely wonderful. When I travelled to these places, I even didn’t want to leave. It makes me feel happy when traveling. I hope that I have opportunities to travel the world. That will be one of the most significant and meaningful thing in my life.
