video Grass-fed beef movement

By Chloe Knue

We are taught to be critical consumers of the images we see, hear and read about in the media. However, it is becoming increasingly important to be critical consumers of the food that we eat. With the rise of corporate farming practices and GMO food products dating back to former Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz in the 1970s, it is more important than ever for Americans to be cautious when analyzing the quality and ethicality of farmed products. For ENG/IMS224, our final exam was to complete a video to raise awareness for a cause that we felt passionate about. After viewing the documentary King Corn, I felt inspired to create a short video about the ethical treatment of animals in order to educate the average American consumer.

 

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
