Breaking News Audience Analysis


  • The target audience of Breaking News can appeal to anyone with interest of simulating what it’s like to be a news reporter, or can also include those who do not have an interest
  • Age – The target age group is roughly 8+. The reasoning for this, is because the user’s literacy skills will be tested against a timed clock. In order to be successful in this game, the user must be proficient in reading, which includes accuracy and efficiency

Audience Hook

  • Users will get a snap shot experience of what it is like to be in the hot seat, also known as a News Reporter or Anchor. Users will feel the pressures of delivering a message to an audience, efficiently and effective as possible all while being timed. The anticipation of the News Director review will keep the audience engaged to see if they have what it takes to climb the ranks.
  • This specific program does not satisfy any needs. It is for pure entertainment purposes.

Project Review

  • Strengths – Mentally engages the user, simulates a new experience, informs user on recent news locally, regionally, and nationally.
  • Weakness – Ultimately is geared towards a specific market (those interested in television news), eliminates those who cannot read, cannot be played if the user does not have a camera and/or a working microphone.

Counting Calories!

Do It For the After Selfie


Today’s blog is going to be all about counting calories. Something so complex, but at the same time so easy. Counting calories is truly the staple to healthy and optimal nutrition. Maybe you’ve tried it or maybe you are just to intimidated by the thought of it. I’m going to give you a few a ways to help when trying to rack up all the calories you’ve ate for the day:

  1. Start with what you eat – create a simple meal plan of the things you already eat, without making any big changes to your dieting. Ignore the daily goal that apps set for you, and all that other good stuff. Try to eliminate fairly junky food and do you darn best to keep sugars low!
  2. Use an App to track – Thanks to the way technology has progress apps really help with counting calories, instead of keep track for…

Check the Labels!

Do It For the After Selfie


If you ask people what they check for on food labels they might tell you calories, sodium, or even cholesterol. We would probably get ten different answers with ten different people. Recently the FDA made changes to food labels and now BOLDS the most important categories to look at – calories, serving size, and the percent of daily nutrition.


A lot of manufactuers are looking to trick people more than help people. Often times you will see things labeled as “Low-Fat” ice cream, crackers, pizza, or whatever the food may be. But reality is, it only is if you eat the recommended serving size. Now, here is the catch. The serving size is unrealistic! The FDA now bases food labels off of the “common” serving size.

New nutrients are now featured on labels. Its not just your basic vitamins, it now includes iron, calcium, vitamin D, and potassium! Most fruits…

So you already decided you want to commit to eating heathy. Now what do you do? It’s time to part ways with all the junk food you have laying around in your kitchen cabinets. That’s right ALL the unhealthy things, cake mix, cookies, sugary cereal, poptarts . . .you get my drift. To end those cravings and sabotage all your healthy eating efforts, because let’s be honest here it’s a real effort, here is what you should do to begin:

  1. Try unsweetened cocoa powder. It’s a smarter replacement for chocolate! Try putting it in your greek yogurt. There is a lot of things to do with cocoa powder. My suggestion is to look online to find out the endless possibilities!
  2. Balsamic Vingar – Drizzle it over a salad or steamed veggies! It’s great for marinating, and can turn the “same-old” protein taste into something delicious!
  3. Cashews! Try to stay away from almonds and peanuts all too often. This is a better nut choice!
  4. Try wild rice – If you are someone like me who eats brown rice on a regular basis, switch it up. Brown rice isn’t the only thing you can eat. Wild rice offers the same benefits!
