In Class Interview

November 16, 2017 | | Leave a Comment

Mason Knaub is a mass communication major and business minor from Omaha Nebraska. Knaub found his way to Morningside in pursuit of his love for music. He is currently on the Morningside drum line. Knaub has many hobbies such as lifting, playing music, production, and MMA. He listens to all kinds of music, except for country, but his favorite kind of music is rap and hip-hop. He would love to get a job in audio production after he graduates and he would like to live in Omaha. Mason Knaub ends our interview by saying “If I was stuck on an island with one person for the rest of my life I would pick Joe Rogan”.

Walking from class to class, day after day, you begin to create a pattern. This pattern consists of the same buildings and the same passing people. After seeing this guy walking past me day after day, I decided to spark up a conversation with the man.
The gentlemen’s man was Devin. Devin is an agriculture major from Minnesota. When first saying hi to Devin and introducing myself, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Devin was a great example of Minnesota kindness I’ve heard so much about. He was not at all shy talking to me and wanted to know my background and how I ended up at Morningside.

Devin came to Morningside to play football and he decided that it was not quite for him but he liked the school so he decided to just stay in Sioux City to finish out his schooling. He does not think he is going to stay here once he graduates. Devin wants to move back home to where his family is and start working for his family farm.

 I asked Devin if he had ever noticed me walking pass him just about every day, and he said yes. It is funny how often we see people on the street and never stop to say hello. I asked if Devin felt invisible and he immediately gave me a weird look so I just changed the subject. There are so many interesting people we walk pass every day, but if you stop and think about it, you could be walking past your future best friend or spouse.

This news story is newsworthy and caught my attention, however there are a few things I would change. The title of the news article used trigger words to get my interest. It was short and to the point. On this article one issue I found was that I could not find the reporters name anywhere on the page! Another thing I would personally have changed to this news article is that I would’ve added in links to articles linking to what happened back in 2015!

Emma Watson Speech

November 7, 2017 | | Comments Off on Emma Watson Speech

Emma Watson is a British actress and activist, doing women’s rights work. Watson speaks at the UK-based charity One Young World’s annual event in Canada where young leaders are all brought together to create positive change. Watson made a speech on her HeForShe campaign, which was launched two years prior in 2014. You could tell she was speaking from her heart and was really passionate about the subject. She spoke about how after she launched HeforShe, she experienced both highs and lows that she never dreamed she’d face as an activist. Watson goes on to speak about the “community” of people that make up HeForShe, “Apart from the significant progress the world has made in the cause for equality, the best thing about the last two years has been this… finding people from such disparate experiences and communities that I found that I have something in common with. This is a community of artists, spiritual teachers, dreamers, thinkers, doers who work together and support each other”.(Watson) She goes on to talk about the strength of all the people involved and how important equality is. “We all have feminine and masculine energies within us and both forces need to be lifted up!”(Watson) Emma Watson concludes her speech by making seven statements and about how they affect her and inspire her as a person.

This story is newsworthy and I loved how this article was connected to the actual news video of NBC News Erika Edwards. A video always makes it more enticing. I also like the article they linked into it article to the actual US Consumer Product Safety Commission recall page.

This story is newsworthy and I believe the reporter Alex Boisjolie did a good job covering this story. He was straight to the point and got all of the interesting facts out about the incident without making it too wordy. Although this has nothing to do with the reporter or article itself, one thing that bothers me on this articles page is all the advertisement’s all over the place! P.s. I agree with you on the Journal’s stupid emoji rating system, very aggravating!
