Exploration Four by Courtney Shaffer
Something that struck me in reading about the Tiananmen Square protests what the fact that we see protesting every where around the world, daily, but consequences like this are unusual. I feel as almost every time I watch the news or read news articles there is something about students protesting, teachers, or what I hear about most and see are college students protesting on campus's. These were mostly young students protesting for greater democracy and at least three hundred were killed, as many as ten thousand arrested. This struck me because I when I'm seeing or hearing protesting nothing like this ever happens to the young adults or children.
I used CNN and The Wall Street Journal to research current news on ebola. Both of the internet sources summarize the story on a women in Madrid, Spain with Ebola. She started to have a high fever on September 30th, and had two tests to confirm the disease. It is unknown how she got it though, which they are working to figure out. The women is a nurse's assisant and has helped to treat two others with Ebola. The sources handle this topic differently. The CNN article explains this women's case and how they are working on trying to figure out who she got the disease from and how. This article goes very in depth with this matter and talks about different people who are suspects. The second internet source, The Wall Street Journal, also starts by summarizing the women's case, but they go in depth with how they are handling the situation. They talk about where she is, and how she is isolated from hoping to not give others the disease as well. A similarity would be how both of the articles start by talking about this women being a health-care worker and how she has been around two others with Ebola in the hospital. The Wall Street Journal internet source includes a picture of the Hospital De Alcorcon.
