Well the site for my project is almost up. www.whereisbook.com will be the name of the site. i have bought the rights to it and have been working with people, coding and experimenting with code...this is very frustrating.......i originaly had free hosting but it cant support what im doing.......so the $5 a month is worth it. I have alot of books and have started circulating them. i have two e-mail responses already.....

This is for the international assignment. I believe our group chose architecture as the theme for our photos. I took various night time photos of Philadelphia because that is when I think the city looks best. These photos each show a different perspective on the city's buildings and layout. I had some shots of individual buildings but I think these wide angle shots look the best and show more than Just one building which out of context can look like another building in any city, it is only when you see the layout of multiple building you can contextualize the area. Starting from the upper left is a shot of the Ben Franklin bridge and a church steeple on spring garden street. This shot shows downtown Philadelphia and even into New Jersey in the far distance. The photo on the upper right shows and abandoned building off off ridge avenue. The building is interesting because it is triangular. Completely surrounded by streets. The shot on the bottom left is of city hall on broad street. Finally the picture on the bottom right shows North Philadelphia and Temple University Main campus. Temple looks so interesting at night from a distance because of all the lights that illuminate the campus.
the book exchange......simple premiss, buy some books give them to homeless and see were they go...put up a tracking website and see if people will keep track of where they go...track movement over time to see how many people use the book. I will document the initial book exchange with my panasonic 24p camera. The first person i am giving the books to is a homless man named charles who has a passion for reading. Before i give out the books i will make a web site for tracking the books progress. I will mark each book in the cover with an area to sign proving you have had the book giving name/location. I do not expect everyone who comes across these books to have acsess to the web so i will make it so the last person with web acess update the names/locations. Each book will have an indavidual serial number. Initialy i will give out 10-15 books. adding a book a month for as long as i can. The location for this exchange would have been where charles lived and i would give some books to him on colubus bolavard but that is not a location. So my location will be the bus. showing the video. Additionaly with the web site i will try to enable people to tack book movment through cell phone. Hopefully i will also be able to hand books out to strangers in the different locations that we visit.

critical solution........what if there were a mobile truck that had people trade 1 or many bags or trash for food......It would create a city without hunger and without liter.......(like a canadian city lol)...... by inspiring homless or who ever to trade bags of trash for food. (Bags would be supplied for collection. These would be specialy marked bags to prevent trash being taken for normal collection) Additionally this truck would 1. feed those in need 2. clean up the city 3.create jobs from the demand of collection 4. give hope to those who have none by creating purpose. These trucks would cost very little to operate. Food that would be supplied would be donated or purchased for little or no cost at bulk rate.

This is my gnome in mexico in front of an ancient pyramid
Beat cop, 35 years old, Hispanic

It was like any other Saturday afternoon, Maria Lopez was about to make he rounds walking the beat in center city. As usual the normal hustle and bustle that normally inhabits the downtown district was replaced by the slow stream of tourist visiting at the end of the tourist season. After checking in at the precinct she began her walk to mind the tourists as they liked to call the day shift on the weekend. Maria left the station and began to walk to the court house to pick up some forms she had to fill out for a trial she had to testify in on Monday. After leaving the court house on filbert and 11th, At approximately 10:30 she got her first call of the day, purse snatching at suburban station. As usual she went there took the police report and left. She didn’t care much for trains due to a bad early child hood experience. At 12:30 it was time for lunch at the usual spot on 17th.After her lunch she began to proceed down walnut, when her life would change forever. As she walked by an alley she noticed a faint crying coming from a dumpster, she wouldn’t have heard it if it had been the week day but it was Saturday. So she began to investigate. She opened the dumpster and wrapped in newspaper was a baby. She immediately picked the child up who was wet from the dew of the morning. She thought of her own past, you see Maria too had been abandoned as a child, her single mother who could not afford to raise her took her on the subway one day and left her there, in the hopes that maybe someone else could take care of her. She thought I was this child, a life in child services is horrible, I have to adopt this baby. Well she called an ambulance and then after I was released she adopted me.
