  • Where Will I Be In Ten Years

    beginning of this short saga; or at least, the beginning of how my vision of the next ten years was born. Ten years ago I was a homeowner in Modesto, California, driving for a company called Viking Transportation. It had recently been purchased by FedEx and were in the process of changing their name to FedEx Freight. I was really happy about the fact that my drive to work was now only twenty-eight miles one way to Stockton every day, instead of the eighty miles I had been traveling to San Jose five days a week when I was a driver for a now defunct air freight forwarding company called Emery Worldwide, a company that had been in business longer than UPS. A combination of events had sealed the fate of Emery. They had a freight plane crash in Rancho Cordova, California in 2000, killing all four crew members onboard. One year later 9/11 occurred and all air traffic was grounded for over a week. Emery was poorly managed and approximately three years later, they shut their doors, forcing me to leave a job that I was positive I would retire from. This in turn led me to FedEx Freight in Stockton. For the first time in years, I actually enjoyed driving a truck again. In fact, I enjoyed it right up to the time in 2006 when I shattered my right wrist at work. I was off work for two years and had to have more than one surgery to have a plate, pins, screws, and anchors put into my forearm. While I was off with my injury, the economy took a serious nosedive, financially devastating…

  • Media Influence On Culture Analysis

    I think culture is one of the more important aspects of society, if not the most important. Conley, in chapter three, redefined my views on culture and how regulated it is in everyones lives.
