1 Rose 2 Girls

On the latest bachelor episode, the world freaked out to find out that Arie didn’t full chose a girl to live his life with. He told Lauren B. and Bekah K. that he loved them both but he was torn between both of them and couldn’t chose until the morning of the engagement.

On the morning of his engagement he thought he was following his heart and decided to to send Lauren B. home. I was shocked when he did this I believed that they were an amazing couple. He brought out the best in her he literally broke down her walls. Both of them were guarded but she felt comfortable with him and she was confused as to why she was going home and choosing someone else and so was America feeling the same way.

Next Bekah K. came out of the car and he said to her that he would chose her for the rest of his life but did he really mean this. Chris Harrison which is the host of the Bachelor said that there has never been done in reality T.V or raw video unedited but last night history was made.

Arie B. started to change his mind and believed he was half heart in relationship with Bekah K. and decided to break off the engagement and break up with her and continue his relationship with Lauren.

This raw footage was between Arie B. and Bekah K. and something that you must watch. It is shocking of what he did but it definitely took courage and balls for him to break the engagement on live T.V. which was so crazy and broke the news on Twitter. However, tomorrow we will find out who he actually chose and if he continued his relationship with Lauren and which I really hope he does.


Hyper-local News

Hyperlocal News is information oriented around a well-defined community with its primary focus directed toward the concerns of the population in that community. (according to Wikipedia.)

Hyperlocal news a big thing but one of the major problems with it is: no one has figured out how to make money from it.

One website I discovered for hyperlocal news is Columbia Journalism Review the news article is Uptown Messenger and its about a journalist named Robert Morris who noticed the newspaper industry shrinking. So he decided to start a small independent organization that might give him a closer relationship to his audience so en-turn he moved to a neighboring city called Uptown and he created a website entitled “Uptown Messenger.”

The next hyperlocal site I visited on Columbia Journalism review is called “Gossip Extra.” This article is about a journalist names Jose Lambiet from Palm Beach, Fl and he would write about the latest in celebrity news and society gossip. As the newspaper industry started to die off he created his own page called the “Gossip Extra” and he continued to discuss celebrity gossip, weird crime and society functions.

The last article I found on the Columbia Journalism Review website is called “Florida Voices.” In this article it discussed a journalist named Rosemary Goudreau who worked for the Tampa Tribune but created a website called “Florida Voices,” in which she gathered diverse opinions and commentary on the most important issues affecting the state, a product of her experience both in and outside of media.

I thought it was pretty cool to read about these journalist I never heard of them or what a hyperlocal news articles was. I am glad i discovered what this is and I will continue to read more from the Columbia Journalism Review website.

Photo Journalism Project

This blog will be dedicated to the photo journalism project i have chose to do. These photos i chose changed lives. Each photo has history to them that make them relevant to our day. These photos are found in the BBC news photos gallery. I believe these photos will be really cool to discuss and to do further research on them.

In the story not only did it show history but changed it. There are 24 photos that are ancient and were created by Lewis Hine that were never found until now. He was the most important person for documentary photograph since at that time photo journalism didn’t exist. Hine called his project “photo stories” in which he would use images and words to express things he was fighting for causes he believed in.

The photographs also displayed the poor people from the Carolinas, New York and Pittsburgh. Despite the fact that these photos displayed people who were poor Hine took them in a way that displayed dignity and compassion which is pretty amazing.

Here is the website to find the photos if you want to see how they look:


Service Story

For my next project I thought it would be cool to do a service story on the drinking and driving. Service announcements are broadcasted everywhere especially on PBS and normally they are pretty boring but I hope the one I chose to do will be interesting to do and fun to read. Many people today die from those who under the influence. It is very dangerous to drink while driving.

I thought it would be pretty cool as a young person to talk to others on their thoughts on drinking and safety. There are many rules for drinking and driving but they are not so serious. So I would like to know what rules should be in place to stop drinking and driving completely.

I really hope this service project goes well and I can get someone thoughts on drinking and driving and also to inform others the safety that comes from driving while sober because drinking can cause death.


Update on Logan Paul

Logan Paul continues to have his face in the media. He waited a week to finally upload again after the video “Suicide: Be Here Tommorrow.” However, did this quick transition back to Youtube teach me him anything or did it just make him more insane?

In the new vlogs that he uploads he starts off them saying “season 2 Logan Paul Vlogs.” Once again he became number one trending on Twitter after he tased two dead rats.

Just like with every pet, they bring you presents such as dead rats in which Logan Paul’s dog, Kong, brought two dead rats to his door and Logan thought it was funny to tase the dead rats as a joke and he didn’t but he didn’t realize that people wouldn’t like that.

Most people when seeing a rat yell “Kill it” but when Logan Paul kills the rats the whole world believes he’s a bad person for it.

The question on everyone’s mind now is did he listen? Some people may have different opinions on Logan however, we can not judge him based on his videos and small mistakes. Everyone makes mistake and should be forgiven. He is a good person that did a bad thing.

A Men’s view!?

I know you are probably wondering why i titled this new blog “A Men’s view,” well this new story is about a men’s viewpoint on sexual harassment. I really want to know the different opinions of people especially men’s opinions on the topic. In the media today there is a lot of accusations of men sexually harassing women. Everyone seems to writing something about this but I’m writing about this story now because it is a huge topic and there are movements such as “me too” have taken power and has been widely spread through social media even at the Grammys.

Most of you that are reading go to HCC and are a college students and this topic is very relevant to you since you might be working at a job currently and may or may not know that you could lose your job due to sexual harassment. Also I know this topic is huge in media and I know it will interest you since most if the celebrities you might follow have been accused of sexual harassment.

Now this story will be about men’s opinions and one of main sources will be my coworker Jesse and my supervisor Mike. Additionally, this story might be difficult to due to the topic and i would need to find out how to ask the questions in a way to not to hurt someone’s feeling during the interview. But these two men i would ask the same questions on their definition of sexual harassment and their viewpoint on it.

I will also be need to gather more information on the intel of celebrities who have sexual harassment accusation so that i can ask their opinion non their case.

Interview Preparation

I went to Jesse the other day and told him what I was going to interview him about so he wouldn’t be alarmed when I do. I also wanted him to feel comfortable of talking about it with me. So I also asked him if he doesn’t feel comfortable with talking about it then you wont have to do it and this is how I prepared not only myself but him for the interview.

Like I said in my pervious video that I will be interviewing Jesse Gonzalez and I chose him because he is a good looking guy and it seems like many girls have tried to hit on him so I wanted to know if he has ever been sexually harassed and I really cant wait to know the answer.

I know there is going to be challenges doing this interview due to the topic of it. So what I did was I gave him a few of the questions that I will be asking him so he could feel comfortable and could prepare himself to say the right thing. Since this topic is very touchy I want him to prepare himself for the questions and not say something wrong and might need up hurting him in the end.

But this also posed challenges to me since I had to give up some of my questions to him even though I wanted to do it as a surprise but I do understand what Jesse is coming from when asking for the questions now because its a very touchy topic and I want him to feel comfortable when answering.

Interview Questions

For this new blog post I will be writing my lead, hook, thesis and the 10 questions I will be asking Jesse.

Lead: Did you know that you can lose your job due to sexual harassment.
