New steps in medicine = new ways to dope
Antibodies are the new hope for people who have amyotrophia diseases. They have the ability to slow down and even stop the decrease of muskels.
This skill is highly interesting to the world of doping. Experts say it is easier as genetic doping and it is not for the rest of the athlets life. The problem for athlets might be that the antibodies are, at the moment, visible.
Besides the use of the antibodies by healthy people is related to high risks for their health.
A new way of story telling can be seen in the documentary by the gebruederbeetz film production. Their whole documentary is just out of material which they found on youtube.
The film follows pupils from Israel on their big journey to Poland. During this trip the pupils look at the history their people have gone through during World War II.
The journey is highly emotional and challenging for the students as they are e.g. listening to personal fades while standing in the crematory.
Clinton becomes Al Gore
The election system in the United States has its own rules. What seems for a lot of people in Europe not thinkable is possible in the United States due to the electoral college.
Hillary Clinton lost the election. She could not gain enough votes within the electoral college, but she won the popular vote.
The last time that this happened was in 2000. Democratic candidate Al Gore lost against former President George W. Bush junior although Gore won the popular vote.
The world’s reactions on Trumps victory
After a long campainging season the United States and the world have now knowledge about who is the new resident in the White House. Donald Trump.
In the common tradition congratulations and statements from governments around the globe were given in the aftermath.
Western Europe congratualates and demands of the new President. Countries like Russia or Turkey whom with the relations have been difficult in the recent past are stating they welcome the opportunity for a new start between the United States and their countries.
Amelia Earhart might have died as a cast away
This is an interesting story about a femal pioneer in aviation history.
The written story tells about new evidence that was found which possibley proves that Earhart has died as a cast away. The other older theory is that Earhart died in a plane crash.
In the viedo which is available with the story shows new footage that was found just recently. It shows Earhart shortly before she left for the try to fly around the world as first women – a try for a record. She never finshed her mission and her body was never found.
Stepanows finally receive support
The Stepanows, who are the biggest whistle-blower related to the huge doping scandal in Russia and the Russian track and field team, will recieve now after the olympics support by the IOC.
Critics say the support given to the Stepanows was over due and should have been given from the start on. Julia Stepanowa tried to participate at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janrerio, but the IOC did not give their approval.
First photo story published
I am currently enrolled in the class ‘online journalism’ at the University of Denver. For this class we have different projects that we need to submit.
This is a my first photo story about a construction side close to campus. ‘Muse appartments’ is the name of the future building which will very likely host soon a lot of DU students.
Natpe Career day at 9news
Natpe or the National Association of Television Program Executives has organised a day of education in Denver.
The event was hosted at KUSA where young journalist could attend a career day including a job fair and a TV station tour.
Allegheny Forest region, a secret beauty
The BBC did a photo story on the Allegeheny Forest. It uncovers a beauty that can be found in the east of the United States.
The region is a secret trip for taveling. Rivers and trails are found for hikers and other fanciers of nature, but also industrial history.
See you soon on Twitter, the #digitaljournos class is over.
