Olivia Porcheddu's insight:

This article is informing people about how bad body image is effecting teenagers and how they are trying to promote a positive body image instead of a negative body image. this article is good but not that informative except for telling the reader that body image is a serious problem in australia.

Olivia Porcheddu's insight:

This is a very good video about contraception because at the begining it gives you the statistics of how many teenagers have sex before 16 then it gives you some thougths about sex from teenagers themselves. the rest of the video is done by a doctor and she talk about the methods of contraception and how that there is not only the condom to stop pregnacy's. T his video is also very good because she shows and tells you what to do when putting a condom on and taking one off. She also gives you lots of tips about the condom and other methods of contraception.

This fits well with the contraception topic because it shows the correct way to put on a condom and make sure it doesnt break or tear. Also preventing std's in the process.

Alex Grozdanov's curator insight, May 18, 2015 8:38 AM

This video shows the best methods for contraception for both males and females. It explains which method is best for certain types of sex and how to apply/use them so they are effective. It explains how a condom is one of the best choices as it prevents the women from getting pregnant and from catching a sexually transmitted disease. I believe the video was effective as it was simple and got straight to the point.

Thousands of Australian women take the contraceptive pill, but now a leading doctor has given her warning on the potential dangers of the pill.
Olivia Porcheddu's insight:

This is a great article because it informs you about all the dangers of the pill yaz/yasmin and aproximatally how many people it had caused severe trauma to. This is a very informative article han has a personal story in it to show how severe the side effects can be and how traumatic it can be for someone to go through. It also tells you to stay away from this brand of contrceptive pill because of how life threatening it is even though it is still out on the market. overall i think this article has worked well to promote how dangerous this product is and to make sure consumers know the actual dangers of the product, not just what the manufacturers want them to think.
