American Dreams Disrupted: Small-business owners fighting to survive
05/28/2020 12:11pm

A truism of history is that the more time passes, the more we forget about the toils, triumphs and sacrifices of those who endured.We forget when time draws our focus away from the millions who persevered in anonymity, turning it back to the eras hallowed names and faces, however deserving. Left fading in the footnotes is the human toll the stories of loss, hope and redemption that brings gravity and dignity to the retelling of the most defining moments of the time.Another truism of

COVID-19: Analyzing and attacking the spread of misinformation
05/26/2020 4:57pm

by Mallory Culhane When the coronavirus pandemic hit hard in the U.S., many people were forced to adapt to new learning, working and living situations as schools closed, businesses moved to remote work and residents were instructed to stay inside. Journalists are no exception which presented a new range of difficulties for those in the industry. Im working out of my walk-in closet in the master bedroom of my house and a bunch of us are doing that, said Joan Jones, the morning anchor for WTOP, serving the Washington D.C. region. I think it just presents different challenges for usbut theres always a way around it. The pandemic has also put a spotlight on a familiar issue for journalists working to report accurate information. The abundance of information, both factual and false, has caused difficulty for the average person to find reliable information on the virus, what the World Health Organization WHO is calling, an infodemic. A number of conspiracy theories, as well as seemingly minor false claims have contributed to a storm of misinformation online. The abundance of misinformation circulating on social media have left journalists, public health officials and politicians, as well as the social media platforms ...

COVID-19 affects live concerts with hopes to reschedule
05/08/2020 2:53pm

by Maddi Dolan As some states in the U.S. are ready for phase one reopening after the coronavirus lockdown, many people are left questioning what the future will look like for concerts and festivals. Back in March, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC made an announcement urging event organizers to postpone, cancel, or significantly reduce the number of attendees for mass gatherings. The announcement stated that events larger than 250 attendees should be canceled or postponed. Since then, there has been more than a million confirmed cases of coronavirus in the U.S, and updated announcements have been made to cancel gatherings of more than 10 people. In an article published by the Los Angeles Times, Ezekiel Emanuel, the director of the Healthcare Transformation Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, said it would be difficult to host large events without a vaccine. If 1 of the population has COVID-19 and half are asymptomatic, thats 250 people in a stadium of 50,000, all touching chairs, eating food, talking and jumping and shouting. Is there a better place for spreading disease said Emanuel. While a number of performances that had been set for March and April were pushed to the summer, ...

Tiger King: Special episode starts controversy
05/03/2020 1:01pm

by Robin Bakker If you have not watched Tiger King on Netflix yet, then honestly, what else have you been doing during quarantine It is not only a great way to pass time, but it also shows that your life is probably not as crazy as others. The documentary follows people who own tigers and exotic animals for private zoos. If you picture drug addict guys that just got out of jail and girls who are forced to get boob jobs, that is the main cast of the show. The lead character is Joe Exotic. Another big name is Carole Baskin, who owns a rescue in Tampa. Some sororities on campus have even volunteered there including The University of Tampa PEACE Volunteer Center. As for how popular it is, Variety.com states that the show had about 34 million viewers in the first ten days after it was released. There were less viewers during Stranger Things 2, which had 31 million viewers and a little bit more viewers during Stranger Things 3 which had 36 million viewers each within the ten day span. Today, Joe is in jail for a count of murder for hire on Carole and breaking the endangered ...

Subtitles are more important than you think
05/03/2020 12:57pm

by Samantha Minnehan Most of us are probably familiar with the little closed caption button in the corner of the screen on Netflix and other streaming services like Hulu, Apple TV and Disney Plus. Most cable services also offer some sort of closed captioning/subtitles. You click that button and you can choose from a variety of languages to read subtitles in. Not only does it tell you what the people or characters are saying, but it can also give information about music and different sounds that are being used to enhance what you are watching. Subtitles and captions are actually slightly different, captions are word for word while subtitles are a transcription of a video, but in this instance they are being used interchangeably due to being different from service to service. Despite this closed caption option lacking in movie theaters, it is available on most streaming services. It is unlikely that you will walk into a movie theater and see subtitles on the screen unless you are at a theater that features independent or foreign films. Big name theaters can take a step towards inclusivity by using subtitles for all films played. Subtitles benefit not only the hearing impaired, ...

Mail-in ballots for the presidential election raise concerns
05/03/2020 12:52pm

by Juliana Walter COVID-19 has changed almost every part of life as we know it. One of the most highly debated issues now is determining whether the 2020 Presidential primaries and election should all be switched to mail-in ballots. In the midst of dealing with the issues involved with enforcing social distancing, temporarily closing businesses, and providing adequate healthcare during this pandemic, the U.S. faces another issue of how to continue voting for both primaries and the upcoming election in November. Almost every state that had primaries scheduled after Sunday, March 15 are continually pushing back in-person voting or even cancelling them completely in favor of mail-in ballots. Mail-in ballots bring up many issues like voter fraud, voter security, and delays in results. Although most states postponed their primaries in order to give themselves time to come up with an adequate plan, most states primaries have officially been switched to mail-in ballots. States like Ohio, whos original Tuesday, March 17 primary was postponed, opted for an absentee-only election due by Tuesday, April 28. Ohios law also maintained that all registered voters must have the opportunity to vote. The state allowed a limited number of in-person voting centers for the homeless, ...
