From this event , it is not difficult to see that taking

thing for almost everybody for sharing personalities

and styles . We see tons of selfies daily on many

most popular social communication websites , such

as Twitter , Facebook , and Instagram . It even has

been a quite easy and simple way for people to

entertain and communicate with each other by

simply upload a self-photo .

“ It would be really fun to win the prize by upload a selfie because I am a huge fan of

selfie .I take selfie almost every single day and upload it online , and this will be super easy

for me to win the prize .” said a random customer .

“ I don’t know since what time that selfie became much popular , but I do see so many

people take images of themselves and show them through websites as a daily habbit . Even

though I’m not so interested in that .” said another customer who doesn’t seem like love

selfie but still admit that selfie now is much popular .

In my personal opinion , since the directors permitted to organize this contest , they know

exactly how many benefits they could get from it , such as revenue and popularity . As

not . In this fast-paced society , people use selfie as a fastest and simplest way to show

Assignment 1 : the factors that impact and support the transit referendum

Since the BC premier Christy Clark claimed that a referendum would take place as a new potential revenue source , this plan has become a hot social issue . The referendum  is a public vote which is depends on residents ‘ wills on transportation funding measures identified by the Metro Vancouver Mayor’s council .

The reason of making this transportation referendum is in order to make a strategic  investment for the region livability , because Metro vancouver is currently facing a series of issues , including economic growth and substantial regional population , which are the major reasons  that made Metro Vancouver proceeded  the transportation plan . Although the goal of transportation referendum plan is for making BC transportation system work more efficiently , the citizens in BC are not all happy with this plan .


Jenna , who personally has the negative opinion with the extra payment (Frank Zhang )

Following the findings of a  public canvass , an undoubted conclusion could be drawn , which tells that the majority of the interviewees showed negative emotions to this ongoing plan . The reason that an interviewee Jenna claimed why they dislike this plan is definately about the extra payment .

From the explaination of the transportation referendum plan we can see that the 0.5 per cent ” dedicated regional tax ” had been pitched by the mayor as a fairest and affortable funding source ; however , this tax including a vehicle levy and carbon tax which is not fair to drivers . On the other hand , the average of this tax is approximately going to be $125 per year and costs the poorest residents another $50 , that is the reason why so many interviewees claimed that this is an extra burden on their heavy living costs .


The interviewee Jack did not feel so confident with the performance of BC transportation. ( Frank Zhang )

Another major reason why citizens dislike this plan is that they are not so confident if the Translink can incrediblely make sure that the transportation projects will be diong efficiently claimed by one of these interviewees Andrew

; also , many citizens are still confused with “how the mayors spent the funds” before they start voting for the extra tax . In the meanwhile , only few opinions from the interviewee Daisy


Daisy , the interviewee that were okay with the transit plan and the extra payment ( Frank Zhang )

claimed that they would vote YES for the transit referendum said one  reason for their decisions , which was fully believe that the plan will definately improve the transportation condition . Furthermore , there were even interviewees claimed that they would vote Yes because they didn’t really care about the tax and the upcoming changes .
