The Portland Zoo, Japanese Gardens, and Rose Gardens..reflective of consistent excellence
10:26 pm pdt
Went to the zoo today with family. Then took
the zoo train to the Rose gardens, followed by
a guided tour of
the Japanese gardens.
All reflect/represent programs that produce
fantastic results for the funds, efforts
At all three locations, not only did my family
and I enjoy our time, but also got to watch
people from every walk of life enjoying their
time as well.
The free tours at the Japanese Gardens...

us read between the lines of the question
and look at how media has contributed to
2.) Media is an educational/cultural
impactor..capable of directing human societal
developments. easily used for
purposes that can be of a harmful or
A failure of media can be offset
by a healthy,
enlightened national educational program..
Something that in the U.S. has been being
destroyed...but thats another
issue..but has been contributory to the current
situation being discussed here.
We can see three things that stand out as
