topic_interest is exactly wear your mask
2020-10-12Monday mornings at UNLV are usually the busiest times all week. We have students walking around campus, running to class, catching up on past assignments, or simply getting a coffee with a group of friends. On October 12, I was walking to my lab (which has 15 kids in it), and I look up to see an unbelievable view: only 5 students walking in the same pathway as me. Don't get me wrong, I think it was a wise decision by our Nevada state government to change to remote classes for the semester. UNLV chose the safest way possible, and it is great seeing my school take the right precautions, however, that doesn't change the fact that our campus has never been as empty as it is now. "The city that never sleep" has turned into "the city that's trying their best to stay awake." Once things eventually go back to normal, this photo will seem unreal. For now, this is the status of our UNLV campus: lonely, but safe.
2020-09-02Humor has become so important to our everyday lives. If the mainstream media were to be believed, it would be all doom and gloom. Sometimes, a laugh is just what the doctor ordered. Wearing a mask as one goes about their daily routine is a new concept for many, especially children, who might not really understand the reasons why and might be afraid. This particular photo of a German Shepherd demonstrating the proper way to wear a mask is both funny and helps make wearing a mask seem not so scary for children.
2020-05-10The cartoon indicates that the COVID- 19 pandemic is not just a mortality and public health crisis but also a political, economic and social crisis. The pandemic affects business and the economy that cause political and social conflict on the closure of businesses that affect employment. However, the main point of the cartoon is to promote precaution of the virus and encourage people to stay at home for the sake of their and everyone's safety as an effort to fight against Corona which has proven to be difficult. From what I've seen so far when going out in public, most people doesn't really follow the social distance rule or staying at home even though it is highly recommended countless of times on news. My aunt did not take strict safety precautions such as wearing mask and gloves even if she do not lack any of these supplies or reuse the supplies over and over again because she was afraid of wasting it. She was soon involve in a Corona case where her colleges at her workplace was contaminated so she have to get tested. My whole family and I was shock and scare upon the news because we were afraid that she would be contaminated and spread it onto her family, fortunately, it was negative. I hope that she have understand the situation better and take better precautions for the sake of her family and herself. I understand that these type of protection supplied are limited and expensive at this time, but we should always put our health and life above everything else and make sure that the supplies your using is clean and safe, even if you have to find alternative ways like using a washable mask.
