I would really like to like this book. I am having a lot of problem doing so. It seems problematic that the author defines and appears to teach hip-hop as "authentic Black space" - isn't this essentializing - perhaps leaving out for example, Jamaican Americans and Latino Americans? So a lot of of the examples provided seemed masculinist and essentializing, and yet the author refers to "otherness" so frequently that one would have higher hopes for his inquiry with students. As a reader and fellow educator, I had problem with Professor Lamont Hill's rather heartless critique of his colleague (in hip-hop curriculum building) as someone who was "not an effective classroom teacher." Hill went on to divulge a story in which other teachers laughed at his idea of collaborating with this colleague, but for some reason Hill went forward with the project. I was then also curious as to why his collaborator was not a co-author. This would seem to warrant some explanation, particularly given that the author is an anthropologist. Hill goes on to posit this collaborator as a sort of Foucaultian "voyeur." What about the authors own voyeurism across cultures and genders - or while addressing subjects he chose for this curriculum, such as abortion? As a female, I was especially troubled by the ways in which the author allows male students to speak for themselves via lengthy block quotes as disembodied authorial voices, while Hill himself gives female students fragmented voice along with somewhat objectifying descriptions of their person, their clothing, even their tattoos. There are gender and racial politics here that I want were addressed more thoroughly.
This Application is terrible. Don't waste your time! I loaded a hop card for the week. I begin the application to pay my fare and it charges my bank card and there's no ticket to be found. I ended up paying the price of two tickets both times, while the funds i place on my hop card sit untouched. I'm done. I called customer service repeatedly and no one answers. There's not even and email to dispute your problems. Wasted my time and money.
I saw the reviews claiming the application wouldn't work once you got on the bus, and they are absolutely right. I loaded $5 to be safe and the two times I've tried to tap once I got on the bus NOTHING happened. Heed these warnings and do not use this app. i have a Samsung galaxy, so depending on whether it works with iPhones or not, it may just be an problem with the android device ver of the app. Still, wasted $5 on this thing and still had to pay out of pocket to obtain a ticket. DO NOT DOWNLOAD
Seem to have fallen into a loophole where I bought a card latest year and place cash on it, then switched from IOS to Android device and now can't figure out how to obtain the preloaded virtual card from the Hop Pass application into Google Pay so i can use it! I see a method to add a card if I have the 3 digit code, but that requires me finding the physical card... So, had to create a fresh one which properly linked to GPay and now my money's locked down in the nether until help can sort it out
its very useful, and its somewhat useable. its just very clunky, not good overall. would not recommend. I am very tech savvy but the application is not intuitive, and half of the things in the application don't work properly. for example, you can't shoe your proof of purchase.
So only virtual cards can be used on the phone. There is no option to convert your physical card number to a virtual card. I would rather use my phone to pay but I don't wish to create a second card. Please add a feature where you can create your physical card act like a virtual card so I can pay with my phone!!! UPDATE: Well c-tran/trimet added google pay to the application but there is still no method to convert a physical hop card number to a virtual hop card. I don't wish to have to pay for a second hop card just so u can have a virtual one.
This android game is even cooler than Tiles Hop, and that's saying a lot because Tiles Hop has been my favorite android game ever since it came out. Ball Hop is now my favorite, and Amanotes is the coolest gaming company ever. I love their games, especially this one and Tiles Hop
Being a large fan of Heavy Attack, I first heard this on Pandora a few months ago after creating a Heavy Attack station, but this one just creeps into my ear and works away until I search myself NEEDING to hear it again! HAD to have it! The beat is totally infectious, with a amazing upbeat, new urban sound, over undeniably amazing rhythms to hold you strutting and moving throughout.I listened to a short sampling of the next track after this one on the album ("Mondlicht", on Berlin Serengeti), and just knew that Radio Citizen wouldn't allow me down; I had to have the entire album, and am sitting here relishing it as I write sten to it online, and I'm positive you'll search yourself downloading this or buying a hard copy of it before you even realize it!Music to soothe the savage beast!
I've had the application since latest summer and it was working just fine. Max, bus, balance, proof of fair. All just fine. Started my original purchase with $80. Recently reloaded my card and now my application won't scan at all. I've unistalled and re-installed twice and it won't do a damn thing. My balance shows up but won't scan. Thankfully I had a nice driver allow me on latest week. Today i tried again, even stopped the tri-met guy in the bright jacket to support and he ended up giving me a pass. Why now??
doesn't always read no matter what position I place my phone in case on or off. It will read fine at max then multiple times now I have transferred and the 14 won't read it and have had issues on the 72 to the point I was late because I had to obtain off the bus because even though I have cash on my HOP pass the reader was unable to scan my phone. Yet the next bus it was fine. Aggravating to say the least.
This application needs an update. The scanner will read it and either deduct the amount loaded, but not present ticket details, or the scanner will read it but not deduct and not present ticket details. Other times it has worked perfectly. Inconsistency gets it 3 stars.
Installed and opened simple enough, but when attempting to create/pay for a fresh virtual hop card and account, it repeatedly told me that the transaction had failed. I eventually was able to use Hop Fastpass' separate www service to create/pay for a usable virtual card, but also discovered a day or two later that all those failed transactions had actually gone through without showing up on my account, and I was missing a amazing bit of money. Two fairly fast phone calls later and I did obtain refunded.
So it's buggy, doesn't wish to work or even load up half the time, and as others have said, you might obtain charged, but it would present it on the application so you have to pay a second time in hopes it finally works. And now it's taking over the application the busses have been using for a few years now. The one that actually works. The one I've used all this time to obtain back and forth from work. Why? Don't know. Beyond me. Seems like it's just bought to @#$% a lot of people off more than anything else.
I like that I can track my hop balance with the app, but might I create a suggestion? Add a "minimum balance notification". I would like to know beforehand if I can afford the fare or not. NOT when I'm half method through my errands, and on the other side of town.
my physical card wont work after having it for one month. nothing is scratched or broken, it is a month pass so I hoped I could ise it with this app, but I would have to buy a fresh monthly pass...... trimet is always screwing me over somehow. Customer service was no help, telling me his has worked for 2 years.... cool bro, mine is broken after 40 days.....
i love the idea of this application for trimet but the developers need to work on a few things. it often takes a VERY long time for my card to a can. and when youre getting on the bus and the driver and all the riders behind you are getting annoyed, its stressful. sometimes i never obtain it to scan and end up not paying allor needing to pay in cash.
Update: NOW I search out they have charged me but I still have no hop card number. DON'T INSTALL. I am so glad I only lost $18. So irritated!! Couldn't obtain it to load any value. Tried CC and Google pay. Trying to do this from a hotel Wi-Fi so I had the fabulous experience of exposing two various credit card numbers to sniffers. Now I am annoyed because I still have to buy a physical card to use the service.
This application was amazing up until it deleted my debit card information and refuses to "save" ot for future use. Now I cant load it when I need to and its always telling me that my card info is wrong. It never gave me this issue until recently and its very frustrating. Customer Service never answers and Im at the point of calling it quits. The only thing that is saving this application is the fact that I can check my balance. At least I can reload at a store. But if I can give this application no stars I would
This track is eat beat, love how it crackles like old vinyl. How come it took me 7 years to hear this? Thank you KCRW public Radio for playing it in the middle of the night...Got up out of bed and started dancing. Love, and highly recommend this track. Gonna have to check out the whole album now!
