“Know My Name”

September 4, 2019

For years she was referred to as “Emily Doe”, but now she wants the world to know who she really is. Chanel Miller is now coming out with a book titled Know My Name that can take the reader through her thoughts and the impact that the sexual assault case that included Brock Turner has on her. This case involves a Standford student, Brock Turner, who raped Chanel in the alley while she was unconscious. Brock was run down by two guys who witnessed what had happened and held Brock until the cops came. Brock was only sentenced to six months in prison but only served three of them while having three years worth of probation.

One thing that really stuck out to me about this article was how there were two different sides shown which I think can be beneficial but this one may be a little extreme. One side showed how it was completely unjust that Brock Turner only received three months in prison and how he should have been in prison for years, which I agree with. The other side talked about how he was a star swimmer and how a lot of people thought he would go to the Olympics and how even this little of a punishment would hurt the young adults future. Another interesting part about this article was the fact that there were tweets in the reading. The website that I used, mic.com,is a website published towards millennials so I think it is good to throw in tweets like that because I think it can keep a younger reader engaged.


Scientists are looking for a way to keep alive the Northern White Rhinoceros population by using different forms of breeding never done to animals of this kind before. There are only two of them left in the world and they both happen to be males so they are trying to impregnate these two females with frozen sperm from past males. Seven of the ten eggs they tried to fertilize, fertilized and the scientists are hoping that they will develop healthy embryos. This type of fertilization process is commonly done in humans and cattle but never before in an animal like this one. Scientists also say that the reason the Northern White Rhinoceros is very close to extinct is because of human actions due to the high numbers of poaching and habitat loss. Overall, scientists have done something that can be used on future animals to stop them from coming extinct even if it is too late to save the Northern White Rhinoceros.

This is a very well written and informational article on mic.com. All of the information is presented in an order that is very easy to read. On thing that I really like about this article is that a lot of the times when talking about science, writers use big words that some may not understand. This article does a great job of using words everyone will understand, and if not they do a very good job of explaining. I also like this article just because it is a wake up call to the people of today. This animal is going to maybe become extinct and they know for a fact that it was for human reasons. Because of this, the author really made a statement in that we need to stop the killing of endangered animals like the Northern White Rhinoceros.


Margaret Moore Interview

August 26, 2019

The person who I interviewed was Margaret Moore. Margaret is a freshman here at Morningside College just like myself. She is eighteen years old and is from Princeton, Illinois, a town of about 7,000 people. Princeton is about two hours south of Chicago and that is where she attended Princeton High School, a high school with an enrollment of about four hundred students. In her graduating class there were 100 students.

So I asked her, why did you come eight hours away from home to go to Morningside? Margaret’s mom is actually a teacher here at Morningside college so that allowed her to get a free education here. She originally picked a mass communications major, but soon found out that wasn’t what she wanted to do and switched to a Psychology major. I then asked her, what made you chose this class? She responded that a journalism class would be good for a mass communications major and she just never switched this class since she changed to a psychology major.

One of Margaret’s favorite hobbies is art. She has also been a very big fan of many different types of art, and that includes creating it herself. Some other facts about Margaret is that her favorite color is green and her favorite food is sushi. I also asked her what her favorite animal is and she responded with a koala which I thought was a very interesting and unique response. That is a little bit about Margaret Moore.
