Amanda and Laurent are quite lovely!
This week was definitely a bit more of a dive into the deep-end I feel. Information was flying around that classroom like a trapped bird. Nevertheless, it was all helpful and valid. Here’s a recap of what I’ve established:
- I need to select a topic for exploration: prevalence of smoking, combatting obesity or harms associated with alcohol. At the moment I’m still trying to narrow it down between smoking and alcohol (the dynamic duo). I feel like ‘smoking’ has been a topic that throughout my degree keeps getting addressed and I’m a little bored of it. However, this paper gives a different viewpoint – down the media and ethics lens, so that is making it a bit tricky for me to decide.
- #AUTHPNorth is the hashtag for the class…
- We now have a Google+ community aptly titled AUTHPNorth.
- Flipboard: I clearly didn’t quite understand the proper use before. I didn’t realise that you could curate and create your own magazine. I thought it was just an online reader, but it seems to be that’s the tip of the iceberg. As Kirsty said, “It’s like a Pinterest for news resources.”
So I’m going to reinstall it on my iPhone and see if I have better use with it this time for collating my resources.

Anyway, that’s enough from me for now. Awaiting week 3…
