Years ago I enrolled in a nightly Journalism course offered by my area’s local
Two editors – two classes – one night each week – seeking freelance writers
This wasn’t my first nor last class in Journalism; however, it was the cheapest
one – price ‘FREE’. I learned a lot about how sensationalism sells newspapers.
Today amidst the world of high tech each morning people worldwide are able
to access the internet and with a click of their mouse select articles to read or
second option trash.
Since blogging my vocabulary increased tenfold as daily new words appear
before my eyes, words never seen before.
Today’s word of the day was ‘endemic’.
As one can spend endless hours utilizing their computer then walk away in
sheer frustration, I carefully pick and choose what to read based on article
I then scan the paragraphs since the majority of journalists take forever to
make a point.
Sadly, the newest vocabulary word spoken by my country’s highest paid
Federal employee didn’t exactly leave me with an optimistic impression.
Endemic defines as a state of existence where the population faces living forever
with a virus circulating at low levels while only on occasion causing severe illness.
In a different news article I read the FDA’s (Federal Drug Administration’s)
statement how the country’s health status by early June will have changed
There are times I feel simillar to a high school student seeking facts – info for
a long-term assignment.
If you are in my age category you’ll remember usage of index cards,
Tis much easier now surfing on your computer screen until if lucky you find the
correct hyperlinks or YouTube videos.
I wonder what portion of the country knows who is listed as the highest paid
Shocking, his last stated salary in year 2019 was $18K more than the President.
As with politics I shall keep my personal feelings to myself as I deem it unwise
to share neither negative opinions nor feelings.
