Pearson, Susan. "Animals and Children First: A History of Humane Societies." Chicago Humanities Festival. Northwestern University, Chicago, IL. 7 November 2013. Web. 20 June 2016.

Summary

In the lecture we watched yesterday, Susan talked about the history of Humane Societies and how they came to be and how they've changed since then. She explained that a lady told her how that lady herself went next door to see what the ruckus was going on. In the end of that, she saw a child in the door crack, visible bruises and doing "household adult work"; something a kid shouldn't have to be doing. She heard yelling before that also. Anyways, I don't know. Later on they decided to enforce Child Protection Services I'm guessing! So yeah!

CRAAP

The lecture video was posted or published, 7 November 2013. I mean it gives us the history of Human Societies so I'd say it's current enough to help us. I'd say it does help our understanding of non-profit organizations. The intended audience would be people interested in Human Societies I would assume. The Chicago Humanities Festival is the sponsor. The authors credential is that she's a history professor with a Ph. D. It was a ".com" so it doesn't really give much, I don't know. The information isn't really supported much with evidence. The way Susan talks, I heard definite unbiased things. The purpose for this video is to probably to teach or inform. Lastly, I'm sure the history is facts, if she added her own comments-obviously those were her opinions.

Reflection

I'm not really into history first of all, then stuff like this don't really "catch my eyes". Obviously I'm sure you can tell I didn't really stay in focus while watching the lecture. I mean I do agree with the things she said. YeAAh!

This information on the website was last updated 13 June 2016, therefore it is current and current enough to help our needs. This website does relate to the non-profit organization topic, and is intended for people wanting to do something good for people or the world in general. The author/founder of this organization is Andrew Shue and his childhood friend Michael Sanchez. It is a ".org" website, and that means it's in the top level of domains for non-profit organizations. This website/organization is supported by evidence, it shows tons of things you can do and thing that people have already done. For the most part it does seem unbiased. I'm not really sure the exact purpose is for this organization, but they just want to "make the world suck less" so they give you tons of ways to do so and you sign up for those things on the website, in conclusion it's probably factual information.

Reflection

I really really enjoy this website. I think it's great that there is so many opportunities to help the people in need of help. It's a really easy to use website and very functional so yeah!
