Communication Technology 1 (CT101) class was much more fun than I expected. Strange thing about this class is, I never knew about this class until my last semester as an undergrad. One of my friends told me about this class who took this class before with Professor Ryan. He suggested me that, as an Information Systems student you should have brief idea about Communication Technology as this is part of Information Systems. I was open for any three more credits, so I enrolled for this class. When I showed up for first day of class and I saw the lab, I liked it and I knew then that we’re going to learn some different stuff. As this lab is different from any other lab in York. None other lab in York college has Mac Computers.

That’s cooool……

I remember in our first day of class, Professor Ryan gave us brief idea of what are we going to learn from this class throughout the semester. Despite this critical situation we are facing now, still he pretty much covered everything he promised. The main three things that I learned from this class and which will be useful to me rest of my life are: Learning Photoshop, learn about giffy, and most importantly building my own website. As an Information Systems student, I had brief idea of building website as I tried before building one with wix.com, but unfortunately never finished it. Building website with wix.com seems lots of work for some reason as compare to wordpress.com.

Making memes were the another super cool part of this class. I enjoyed it so much.

This was panorama session as group.

This was one of our group picture where we tried to portray three stages of a relationship. First when a men and women meet and then in middle they fell in love and at the end they created a barrier in their relationship. I know it is might not perfect but not bad for first try. I think grouping things are awesome and together we can do some amazing things that alone we cannot.

As the Professor wanted us to mention what grade we are expecting from this class, I would say I am confident of receiving an A from this class. I did all the blog posts that the professor wanted us to do. I even did some extra blog posts this semester just because I liked doing it. This class made me feels like using the social media, as the professor gave us freedom to write about anything we are interested in. This is the reason why I have a lot more posts than the Professor required. Writing the posts in this class also was fun because we learned some cool stuff like Photoshop and giffs which encouraged me to write some posts just to show my work from Photoshop and display my creativity. I am a kind of social media person, these new skills will help me modify my social media posts and will make me look cool 😎.

Will you maintain and keep up your new website? Yes, I would love to keep up with my website and maintain it for life time. The main reason is this website is my name and I will use this website as my personal blog website. I will do my blogging on this website. I know the professor paid for a one year subscription, after one year we have to pay. But I don’t mind paying a few bucks to have a website on my name. I always had a hidden admires about having my own website which I do now, and I won’t let it go away.

my website is: kaziahoque.com

Concerns for COVID-19 pandemic

I do not know why, I might be the one of the most concern person about this COVID-19 pandemic. I am also so much active in social media, in fact: in this class too. To create some awareness about COVID-19 pandemic. I have been posting regarding COVID-19 pandemic in this class from the beginning of the semester, this might be my 5th blog post concerning COVID-19 pandemic.

New York City is far behind of it’s preparation for this pandemic. The initiative they are taking now, they should have taken them from January or February when they saw how bad the situation was in China. That way they could have saved many Americans lives.

Finally, in March 9 American official and politicians has realizes it’s severity. But to me as American citizen, it is already too late. The main reason why our officials has delayed the whole process is our presidents undermining this pandemic. Because of our presidents negligence, the federal government did not took any initiative to prepare America to fight this pandemic. Now after 4 months when this COVID-19 pandemic is spread to the all the 50 states, they are now taking primary step towards it, such as ordering for medical equipment.

American President is treating its citizens like how a greedy factory owner treats its workers. He did not allocated any budgets to the states to prepare for this pandemic, just because he did not wanted to spent federal budget. Not realizing that this not a factory, it is a country. The citizens of this country paying their taxes to get these services from the government. Not to just spent all to money to war against the world. Till last Monday, he was falsely claiming that COVID-19 pandemic is under control. Then when it’s went out of control now he is accepting the fact that it is not under control. How stupid is that? Is it what we should expect from a President? Did any Citizen deserve to die or deserve to suffer from disease just because their president is a negligent or ignorant??

American citizens are also not playing much of a responsible role towards preventing COVID-19 pandemic. Now that US officials has urging to citizens to maintain social distance and few states declared shelter in place in other words lock-down. The Washingtonpost has published an article how people are still gathering in beaches in the San Francisco.

My another concern is what is our New York officials are still neglecting to take hard action to prevent this pandemic. Total 9000 of infected in the USA, almost half of it in NY, yet our Governor Andrew Coumo still not considering to place the shelter in place order. I am thinking now, how many people he wants dead before he realize how severe this pandemic is.

Finally, my appeal to my fellow class mates, please take this seriously. Do not go out side unless you have to, avoid all the social gathering, was your hands and face frequently. Stay safe and keep your family safe and healthy. And please pray for me, as a city employee I have to go to work, as Governor still has not decided to shutdown the mass transit system.

May god bless America, may god bless us all.

Be vigilant, don’t panic. Corona pandemic fact.

I would like to start my writing with a prayer to all: “May peace be upon you. may god project us from all kind of illness.”

I know our regular life style is been effected due to this new pandemic, it is all for our own safety and well being. We will respect and follow instructions of our specialists.

 

But please make sure we don’t start blame game, and start attacking people thinking they are responsible. No human-being would try to cause a virus, it is just regular virus spread just like other viruses Ebola, or Spanish-flu etc.

I know this virus started from China, but this does not mean that Chinese people are responsible for this.

This giffy amazingly portrait how fast this virus can spread. So the best way to stop this virus is to stay isolated as much as possible.

Fun fact is that, corona beer also has nothing to do with corona virus ha ha ha. So feel free to drink if you are used to.

We will still fight this virus in other ways without blaming each other. If we stick together, we will get through this pandemic.

 

 

Hopefully we will meet soon. Till then, stay home as much possible, stay safe.

May god bless everyone. God bless the world.
