An ISIS-affiliated news agency posted a statement online saying a source claimed an ISIS fighter was responsible for the Orlando nightclub shootings, although U.S. officials haven’t confirmed this. This is a truly sad event that has occurred in Orlando over the weekend. Fifty people dead and fifty three injured so far according to newsy.com. This has been said to be a hate crime and not to mention it’s supposedly connected to the infamous terrorist group ISIS. Innocent people have been killed and it’s not okay. This event is the worst shooting in the United States history. Mateen (the shooter) was armed with a handgun, an assault rifle, additional rounds and an unidentified device. He took clubbers hostage after exchanging gunfire with first responders. The standoff ended shortly after 5 a.m. when police used two “distractionary devices” to rescue 30 hostages. The gunman was killed after exchanging fire a second time with police According to Newsy.com.
The site NEWSY is a great site for those who don’t like to read. It’s interesting and has a very easy setting where news can be found easily. The most current news is first while the most dated is further down which makes sense to have it set up that way. A lot of these news stories are interesting in a sense that it’s all news that the average person would care about or think it is interesting. This site includes fun facts about exploring the moon, Mexican immigrants visiting their deported family members at the border where neither of them can cross but they are able to see each other, and information about schools and their budgeting. These are just three examples of the many stories that are included in this marvelous site. I would recommend this site to anyone who likes to be knowledgeable to the world around them or who just wants to be entertained with information.
Hyper local news sites are news sites with soft news and usually the events or information given is about the local area only. Soft news is news that is not Breaking news per say, includes more passive stories and less headline stories.
One of the examples I found that is a hyper logical news site is the Fish Hawk
Talon. This news site and newspaper includes events and what is happening in the small town of Fish Hawk. Fish Hawk is an HOA controlled community that has a lot of meetings for the different CDD properties. The Talon would state the date and times of the meetings and other HOA events such as food truck rally’s, movie theater events, and occasions that the Fish Hawk area might be interested to do. The Fish Hawk Talon is more of an entertainment for the community. Other similar news websites include the Columbia Journalism site and Niemen Lab which all had those similarities.
Photos can be worth a thousand words, that’s why photos have a strong place in the society of Journalism. Photojournalism is the art or practice of communicating news by photographs. The primary role of the photojournalist is to be a visual storyteller. By photographing, editing, and presenting images, they tell a story in a way that no other media can. Some photojournalists will work for a local publication, while others will travel nationally or abroad, sometimes putting themselves in constantly changing or even dangerous situations according to http://www.journalismdegree.com/. We are assigned a Photojournalism project and I believe I want to do it by taking a photo of a homeless person with the city in the background. This would show both rich and poor and I think would make an impact on society by showing both extremes. This will show that we are all people weather rich or poor happy or sad.
In class I have to write about a certain event and I want the event to be a night to remember so I choose the Tampa Black light slide that is coming to town! The Black light Slide is an exclusive night experience that exposes everyone to UV Neon Glowing fun! Sliders attend from all over to enjoy this spectacular festive event for the night of their lives sliding down the Black light Slide with neon glow in the dark water running down it; everyone who attends will certainly be glowed!

The Black light Slid will leave you glowing with wonder and keep you anxiously waiting for the next one! This only costs twenty dollars admission and it will be so worth it.
Home Owners Association is an interesting organization. HOA’s help control the community to prevent you from living next to a neon pink house and keep the neighborhood looking clean and trimmed. The Home Owners Association have lots of advantages. Unfortunately it also has a lot of disadvantages. The voice of the HOA workers need to be heard in order for things to change, to progress, thrive, and fix glitches in the system. A lot of college students have jobs in the Home Owners Association and this could affect their future knowing about customer service. Mr. Nick is an HOA employee at Fish Hawk Ranch in Lithia Florida. He would be a great candidate to answer the questions of how he thinks working for the HOA. What does he suggest to be done about the corrupt system if he believes it’s corrupt? This is an interesting system to work for. It will be interested to write about the interview in the near future.
Preparing for an interview can be difficult. On the other hand for me it was pretty easy because I work in an HOA and I know what bothers the employees and I knew how to prepare myself to have a great interview. I started with personal information like their name, age, and how long they have been working for the HOA. Nick is the lucky candidate I picked for the interview. Nick has been working for the home owners association for a short two years but it has been a whirl wind for him those two years. I thought he would be a good candidate because he has experienced a lot of issues head on with residents and events that the home owners association has asked him to work. The challenge was to actually get him to do the interview. I had to bribe him with food in order for him to cooperate.
