A mid 30s woman has overstepped her boundaries at Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona. On this Saturday maybe this jaguar was not feeling any visitors. A female jaguar viscously attacked a woman when she decided to climb over the barrier to take a selfie with the animal. The jaguar seem to see the lady cross the barrier, clawed into her arm, and left very bad lacerations on her arm. With all the commotion going on a bystander at the zoo distracted the jaguar by throwing a water bottle into the cage. The lady was treated on sight by the rural/metro fire department for non-life threating wounds. First thought of this story was “ wow I would be dead”.
After treatment the lady is expected to survive. With the incident that happened the zoo was receiving a lot of attention. There were rumors wondering why the female jaguar instantly snaps on the woman. Another questions raised like “ why was the barrier so low.” Also visitors wondered what would happen to the jaguar. Would it be euthanized or simply transferred to another zoo for attacking a person. The zoo put out a statement saying “ nothing will happen to the jaguar because it is not at fault when barriers are crossed”. I do agree do not kill an animal for trying to protect there self. The jaguar probably thought it was under attack.
In my own opinion, I believe the zoo or the jaguar should not be at fault. Everyone knows when you visit the zoo do not cross the line, or lean across the glass to do nothing. You simply watch and animal gaze in awe. Taking a selfie with a wild animal is not on my bucket list. SORRY! It is nothing funny about the incident but I always envision the jaguar saying to herself “ NO SEFIES TODAY.’ While leaping onto the woman’s arm.
Later on the victim did make notice that she does not blame the zoo or the jaguar for the attack. Instead she did a public apology to Wildlife World Zoo. She did describe it as horrifying life-changing experience. A jaguar will not be punished for a selfie gone wrong. She should take fault for going across the barrier of a wild animal. I hope the woman learns a valuable lesson. But as a person with soft feelings and a kind heart I do send prayers and love to her and her wounds.

Technology on friendships will always be a touchy subject. The topic has a lot of pros and con that accompany it. Pros could be thing such as technology helping to keep in contact, create more friendships, and helping existing ones become stronger. Cons could be technology making us lose valuable skills that we learned before using technology, contradicting your actual feelings & making friendships dissolve in a negative manner. Technology being social media & other interactions with any digital device. Friendships being anyone that is or than an aqquantince. Technology has an positive effect being technology is evolving more and more everyday. The negative is it evolving too much that it is replacing important things society needs.
With information rapidly changing how we conduct things it is going to have a big effect. Technology has made making friends easy and losing friends easier. Technology offers us the opportunity to know more people, without actually “ knowing” them. Everybody’s personal opinion about the effects has more than likely come from experience or word of mouth. Real friendships require more attention than what is known to be virtual affection. The simple “IM” chat checking on them. Keeping up with friends requires things like face to face interactions, phonecalls and slight intimacy. Technology can not maximize those things. To maintain a Friendship it always needs more attention than what technology gives.
Vlogging my fellow colleagues about the topic was very interesting. Some were positive that technology and friendships do not mix. Some were positive that technology helps friendships destroy friendships. Getting all those different answers make you wonder is technology or is it the friendships itself that cause the effects. Some say technology makes it better because it help you stay connected regardless of anything. Others say it can contradict your friendship in ways such as feelings. You can say a lot of things through social media but never really feel that way. Morgan State University students know the effects , but chooses not to let them destroy friendships. We all know technology is growing, & it is here to say. It is a link to friendships, but does not have to be the center of it. The effects can change back and forth between being negative and positive. You have to want to use technology for the better, to make things such as friendships stronger. If you do than your friendship will prosper and be very blissful
Watching “Browser Wars” was very refreshing and furthermore interesting. The 40 minute documentary was a background story on how the internet was born for the world to use. Tim Berner Lee created world wide web in 1983. The documentary also included how two companies such as Microsoft and Netscape Navigator started and added to the world wide web. It gave information on the founders of the companies. Bill Gate of Microsoft and Jim Clark for Netscape communications. They entered into a browser war because both companies had great ideas on furthering the internet. My reaction was pretty shocking because history giving but pleasing also.
Internet is very popular, and has greatly advanced since those companies have started. The documentary showed how Microsoft used money to take ideas from netscape.and even when netscape refused microsoft still stoled those ideas. At the time Netscape was one of the fastest running internet browsers in the world. Netscape did not survive those complications , but still is recognized for being a important starter to making internet better. Microsoft may have defeated Netscape , but microsoft still has competition till this day that is doing wonderful. Competition such as Google and Firefox. The documentary gave an enlightening to what internet is and how it has progressed. Both Companies had great contributions to the internet that is still used until this day.
My initial reaction to the documentary was shocking. I was shocked because of the way Microsoft and its founders choices to make there way to be number one. There scheming ways were very unethical and rude. You should not steal other companies ideas to pretend they are your own. You should not still ideas you have not created. I believe Microsoft thought because they had money to give that they could do whatever they want. Foe the real world it does not work that way. With Netscape not having the resources to extend their ideas Microsoft used that to their own advantage.
My second reaction was me being pleased with the documentary, because it gave me a insight on things that I personally use. It showed me history about something that is an importance to the modern world we live in now. It rises the question “ what if internet was never created?.” Without Tim Berner Lee what would we be using in our everyday internet life. Also the documentary taught me who is responsible for things we use. Oddly it pleased me with shining light on how businesses operate when you have competition, and good competition at that.
My reactions to the film are what we can call normal for anybody that has never seen it before. The documentary as a whole was a truth teller, gives good evidence and facts. Browser Wars was a great documentary, and I recommend it to watch if computer informations or even technology is an interest for you. It shines light on negative things sadly, but also gives history about something that is critical and important to todays society.
No other class I have registered for this spring semester has started off like my communication 240 course. My communication 240 course at Morgan State University has started off very upstanding and positive. It gives positive energy and a new modern learning experience. It also have started off very-modern, how I wished all my classes would have. The class is about learning digital media, Which is not my best skill. As a aspiring journalist at my university it is a requirement to take this class. Digital media is very important to modern journalism, because the communication times is changing. My Professor Dr. Patton gives me the feeling that this class will be very hard but fun at the same time. So far the class has started off very good. We did the normal introductions, and went over what is expected from us and herself in the course. When I was listening to her course expectations I was thinking to myself “ this is going to be a lot of work”. After she explained why she does it, I felt more eager than ever to get started. It seems like a self-expression class, and that’s a skill I’m eager to make better. One thing that stood out to me in our second class. She walked in with candy and asked “ what song do you guys wanna hear?”. In my mind I was thinking off back this is different. Before that she already won me over when I seen the candy in her hands as she walked in the door. This course will be my first time having her as a instructor so I’m use to the old fashioned professors I previously had. Then she proceeds to put on “Drake-Gods Plan”. I was shocked that she knows the song and choose to put it on. I instantly thought she is lit and she is hip with music. All because of Dr.Patton vibes I will try my best to put forth the best effort in her class. We haven’t really started much work, but I know for sure the hard stuff haven’t hit us yet. I am ready for it. After talking with peers who have had her previous to this class it eased my mind. She incorporates my favorite social media with the course. Who would not love that. Being on the phone without getting the side eye from the professor is top five the best feeling for scholars. My initial thoughts of the course was blank and I was a little nervous. I had no previous thought because I didn’t know what to expect.Only because I didn’t have the professor before and I didn’t know what this course was going to be about. Looking over the future assignments I see incorporates modern technology and gives us room to freely create what we would like to share with my peers. Even with that structure I am still learning digital media. So I am liking the class, and I am excited to continue working in this comm 240 course.
