Wildcards are my personal favorites!

I love being able to fully express myself while seeing others do the same.

Wildcard assignments allows for one to focus on something one likes or loves even though it may be a bit odd or eccentric to others.

Crystals of all kind I do Love! I honestly have a huge crush on mother nature in generall because she truly is a daily phenomenon and she holds so much wisdom to behold.

One of my favorite crystals is called a rose quartz crystal and I use them mainly for meditation and healing work. Quartz crystals come in many different variations, shapes and styles and they’re known to emit and or enhance positive or negative energies. What’s astonishing is the fact that the quartz crystals can also hold memory data!

Just look at what ZME Science have to say about it!

“Coined as the ‘Superman memory crystal’, as the glass memory has been compared to the “memory crystals” used in the Superman films, the data is recorded via self-assembled nanostructures created in fused quartz. The information encoding is realised in five dimensions: the size and orientation in addition to the three dimensional position of these nanostructures,” reads a press release.

Astronomy & Black Holes

I have a deep love for the stars and so below I will link you to some really cool resourceful sites that I use which teaches on black holes and astronomy in general.

NASA 

Here is a very good link to one of NASA’s sites that allows one to really learn a lot in one place about black holes and how their growth may affect their host galaxies.

National Geographic

When one wants information about space-time and or how gravitational waves effect our earth, this is a very good site and its full of new discoveries geographically.

PBS.org

This site talks about the possibilities of a black hole apocalypse and it gives a very informative video about what one could expect if it were to happen to earth.

Astrophysical Journal Letter

This site allows scientists to come together globally with common monthly information about discoveries and calculations. The monthly letter for April 2018, talks about black holes. Oxford University publishes these monthly articles.

Human Trafficking takes million of lives everyday Tips on Protect yourself

 

It is important to understand the meaning of human trafficking so my source of the definition used on the first line of my paper.

As I continue to talk about how many people can be easy picking for human trafficking. I at least give you air traffic information on who tract the data in the air. How many numbers did they track in 2016?

Federal Aviation Administration Tract so many flights and keep data on them and tries to improve the flights for the passengers and cargo make it easier on weather reports from ground control to the pilots

The number of flights handled in 2016 15,631,000 flights number of passengers in 2016 62,345728  this was controlled by the FAA.

The frequently confuse data was the misconception that people may have about human trafficking, so I share the information thanks to U.S. Department of Homeland security.

For a bonus, I thought it will be good to know how to protect oneself and others. If you think human trafficking is going on near you.

Or you and some else is in danger so hear is a hotline to call is 1 (888) 373-7888 text number is 233733 (Text “HELP” or “INFO”) this is 24 hours, 7 days a week and can be translated into English, Spanish and 200 more languages.

 

 

International womens day

March 8, 2018 people across the country were protesting for International women’s day. On CBS news they showed a photo gallery of women around the world protesting for women’s rights.

The first photo in the gallery shows a Spanish woman waving a flag. Its the first full day the women go on strike against gender violence.

The second photo in the news gallery shows people gathering around each other in Spain also on March 8, 2018. They stand to march and protest for women’s rights. They also march for their accomplishments and gender equality.

The third photo shows more protesters showing their support by two girls raising flags in a demonstration for women rights in Bilbao Spain.

The fourth photo shows protesters forming triangles with their hands during their demonstration for women’s rights.

The fifth photo shows people holding up a sign that says “The revolution will be feminist or with won’t happen” during their protest for women rights.

 

Proposal: Black holes and how they affect us or effect us

I have chosen to write my proposal paper on the latest finds and understandings about black holes.

Being that I am majoring in Environmental Sciences, it only right to share the latest discoveries.

WHO: Black Holes

WHAT: Space and our environment: Black holes are outgrowing their stars and galaxies.

WHEN: Currently taking place above us all.

WHERE: In outer space 4.3 -12.2 billion light years away.

WHY: Because it matters! Our lives depend on what’s taking place above and below our environment daily.

When I finish this informative paper, I would have hoped to bring to the reader more awareness about these very important environmental phenomenons and more understanding on black holes in general through created dialog and curated links with facts.

I will be collecting most of my data and information from these collective governmental sites. (Nasa.gov) (Space.com) (Sciencedaily.com) (PBS.org)

I find that these sites stick to the facts and oftentimes they will team up with top universities globally to compare and contrast studies and records with the best equipment and telescopes created.

Verifying what’s true and what’s false

Verification is very important when it comes to journalism. One of the most important things is that all your information should be verified to make sure your facts, images, or videos are correct.

These days on social media such as Instagram or Twitter people could easily know if a person or news source is verified by looking for the blue check next to the accounts name.

While doing my dataset research, there were many websites I needed to make sure that the information I took was correct. The two websites I used to verify my information was factcheck.org and also snopes.com . I use these two websites to put my facts that I want to verify and they would confirm to me how true a fact is.

There were websites I was using to check the cost of tuition at different colleges in Michigan. When coming along to the facts I was getting certain prices and I wanted to make sure the price is accurate. Snopes and FactCheck let me know if it was true, false, or in the middle.

Verifying everything you put online and making sure it is accurate is very important for reporting.

 

 

The FOIA grants the people public access

The Freedom Of Information Act, (FOIA) was established in 1967, which helped to ensure public access of federal, state or local governments records that are needed for use. All requested information collected on each agency by the individual interested must then be submitted to the FOIA once received, this way there’s a public database full of records and information for all to access.

Without the FOIA being established, it would make it very difficult to gather needed information and documentation on specific important issues from governmental agencies like the FDA, DEA, and other agencies like the ACLU, which is an agency that focuses on protecting individual rights like helping to protect young girls and women by reporting sexual assault and harassment in specific locations under the law.pexels-photo-356054.jpeg(free Google picture art)

Federal agencies must disclose all information requested under the FOIA, and I find this to be very interesting to know along with the fact that there’s only nine known exemptions given which protects more than one hundred company privacy laws.
