It was very impressive how a group of students protesting grew into thousands. What I found most interesting is the fact that about 16 days after the protest, the Chinese government halted all American news coverage and stated that no pictures of the event or troops were allowed. Then, 3 days later, in the middle of the night, Chinese troops began open firing on these protesters. The fact that a country can get away with that in our relative time is both terrible and scary.
Tiananmen Square events
Hong Kong Protests
This is an image of the protesters in Hong Kong. I chose this because these people know how the government handled the Tiananmen situation (with murder). They are now showing that they are staying strong and that the government can not kill them all. I think this is a very powerful message that should be well respected.
These both give easy to understand facts about the ebola virus. This is a virus that is ravaging West Africa and has a few cases involving people from the U.S. The CNN report lists fast facts to help understand the virus. The NY Times article gives a timeline of the events from the beginning of the ebloa outbreak. The similarities are the fact that they both inform about the ebola outbreak. I prefer the NY Times article over the CNN article because it gives info in a timeline form so I can understand the facts and when they happen.
