There is a lot of ting that I could have done to improve the quality this speech. The first mistake that I realized that I talk to fast and speed through my sentences which made the video seems short. I could have done a better job of facing the camera and talking towards the camera when showing the throwing motion. I think that I should have spent a little more time giving a back ground of why people throw the football and where you can throw the football (park, gym, backyard etc). I also should have went more in depth at each phase of throwing the football. The introduction was okay but it could have been to longer and better. i think i couldve done a better job of explaining the middle steps more.The ending was okay it did review all the points that were in the speech.

Its traditional that every summer markets come sprouting up but in this article it states that the winter markets are becoming more and more popular. To me it sounded kind of strange to have a market in the winter months. I was not aware that farmers markets were becoming so popular in the winter. I always thought the food in the summer were the only ones sold in markets. “Vermont, a state known for its long winters, has seen a recent influx of winter farmers’ markets. Currently, 18 markets throughout the state are open in the winter months”. The same costumers from the summer show up in the winter, “I love the summer market,” she says, “so I thought I’d just show up”. The winter markets are not only getting those customers but new ones also The market is a great new way to get people to eat fresh food all year round. The article says that the winter markets are somewhat similar to the summer ones. I think that having these winter markets is a great idea.

The product I picked that has questionable health claims is the breakfast cereal cheerios. I use this product almost every day or when I can. I think that cheerios is a healthy cereal choice and also is delicious. On the cover of a box of cheerios there are claims that the cereal can lower cholesterol and help with preventing critical heart disease. These claims have the FDA upset about how General mills worded the benefits of cheerios on the box; they even went as far as sending general mills a warning letter. According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) the claims made on the boxes of cheerios violates the federal law. The FDA does allow food companies, like general mills, to advertise health benefits that their products has. However, the FDA says that only FDA approved drugs are allowed to make such claims about their product. Therefore the health claims that are on the cheerios cereal box are technically considered unauthorized statements. The cheerios box claims that it can lower cholesterol points as much as 4% in 6 weeks. Cheerios is proven to lower cholesterol, however it fails to mention the only way it will lower your cholesterol is if you already have a good diet. The experts say that the “science is not the question” and that the only thing in question is the wording on the box. I would still recommend this product because even though box fails to mention some important aspects of loosing cholesterol I still think it is a healthy choice cereal.
