Film maker Dennis Allen focused on a small community up North called Fort McPherson and the popular radio station within its walls. CBQM acts as a central point within the community and utilizes the radio station to communicate with one another within the community of about eight-hundred peoples. CBQM acts as a binding mechanism to those within Fort McPherson and surrounding areas by weaving everyone's stories and thoughts together. What I enjoyed most about this documentary was that it was unconventional. The documentary does not include staged interviews with the people of the community being asked questions in a closed off room. The footage is comprised of the people in Fort McPherson engaged in the CBQM's real life operations. Allen follows the people of the community in their home lives, at work, or on the land all the while these people are listening to CBQM. What is most interesting is the way in which they are tied to sustainable self-determination and sustainable living within their tight knit community. The radio station itself is a form of sustainable living. It runs on the help of volunteers, therefore no money is being handed out to those coming on the station. It also offers the community a sense of democratic type governance; everyone has a say in what is done in the community and often call in to voice their opinions on the topic at hand. Another aspect that was thoroughly enjoyed throughout the film was the music the people on the station had played. There was live fiddle music as well as old country songs with very little lyrical styles. Allen has been quoted as saying "You're not going to hear Britney Spears on here, the music is more raw and emotional, it gets more pleasure from the listeners" (Interview with Northern News Service Online, 2009). I grew up in a small town and had never experienced anything like this community does for its people. Granted, we didn't have a radio…

I chose the CSS because i felt that it matched the needs of the website I was making. The blue background is important because spear fishing is an underwater sport. I didn’t want to have any flashy fonts or colours in the text because it is just a factual website outlining the basics of spear fishing in the Currarong region, the flashy fonts would have taken away the importance of the information. The black font colour really stood out against the light blue background making…

by my own peers and called abnormal for my own individualistic view on life. Just because I'd rather watch some old band on the Ed Sullivan Show that actually writes their own music and plays their own instruments and not the queen of pop Miss Britney Spears flaunt her bare skin and lip sinc on MTV does not mean I'm abnormal. On the contrary I think it leads one to believe I'm just smarter then the masses. And don't get me wrong, this isn't some slanderous anti-social statement, it's just my blunt…
There are many reasons why car crashes happens. It could be, texting while driving, speeding or reckless driving, drunk driving, and changing cd’s/radio stations. This is called car collisions. Car collision is when a road vehicle collides with another vehicle, basically a car crash. It is shown that a car/truck with greater mass is most likely harder to stop during a car collision. For example, if a truck with a greater momentum (mass and velocity) and is going towards a small car, it…
Radio in 1920’s
The first radio broadcast was on May 20, 1920 in North America which involved a musical program. In the 1920s, radios were not polished. In other words, earphones were used to listen to the radio and the volume was controlled by a switch which was loud and soft. The listeners had trouble hearing the broadcast and had to strain their ears.
Small groups of people gather around a radio to listen to the news and entertainment events.
Over the years, the radio had improved. The…
