Cuando comenzé este curso nisiquiera habia pensado mucho sobre en que consistiria. Por eso cuando entre al salón el primer día de clases y vi todas las computadoras, me sentí nervioso, ya que no soy muy tecnológico y pensaba que quizas se me haria un poco dificil seguir el ritmo de la clase. Pero según le fui cogiendo el ritmo, me pude adaptar bien. El profesor va con calma y te explica todo paso a paso, eso me ayudó mucho y es una de las cosas que mas me gustó del curso. Después de unas pocas sesiones ya me sentía como un experto en computadoras e informática. También me gustó tener un blog personal donde puedo expresar mis intereses.

Pienso que las dos cosas mas importantes y que mas me interesaron del curso fueron todas las formas en las que la internet accede a nuestra información privada y también las herramientas que existen para ayudarnos a organizar nuestros documentos mejor. Opino que es muy importante proteger y mejorar nuestra seguridad personal en la Web y gracias a esta clase ya se como hacerlo. También, de ahora en adelante podré usar programas como RefWorks y Evernote para organizar mis trabajos y documentos importantes. Trato de pensar en algo que cambiaria de la clase pero no se me ocurre nada, quizás que se realizaran mas talleres dinámicos relacionados a la informática donde hicieramos algo diferente a estar sentados en la computadora toda la clase.

Entry #16

East Wing

A person checks him/herself into a mental hospital because he keeps seeing what seem to be the spirits of dead people. But in reality, the institute has been closed for almost a century due to the patients escaping and murdering everyone else. The asylum is now inhabited by the ghosts of employees and patients, reliving what used to be their life

Arte en Sagrado

Intervalos, confines y territorios es una exposición de arte por la artista Ivelisse Jiménez, que se exhibe en la galeria de arte de la Universidad del Sagrado Corazón. Está compuesta de 21 obras en formato pequeño, mediano y grande; fueron realizadas en 2018 y creadas en medios mixtos de canvas, papel y plástico en pintura de esmalte y acrílica.

Ivelisse Jiménez es una pintora y dibujante nacida en Puerto Rico, pero ha dado a conocer su talento ganando varios premios en distintos paises del globo, como: New York, Madrid, Dinamarca, Venecia, Massachusetts, entre otros. En esta exposición, la artista creó diferentes obras abstractas usando materiales reciclables que recuperó después de que el huracán María destruyera muchas de sus propiedades.

A pesar de que a mi no me atrae mucho el arte abstracta, me llamó la atención como estaban compuestas las obras, los materiales que usaban y como se mentenia todo junto. Tambien me gustó como fueron creadas con materiales rehusados despues de María. Los colores llamativos y las diferentes capas que cada obra tenia tambien me gustaron. Una de las que mas me gustó incluso tenia hongo en algunas partes y, al ser parte de la obra, ayudaba a transmitir ese sentimiento de cosas dañadas que se les ha dado un nuevo uso.

Una Code

Do Not Track is an online interactive documentary about internet privacy. This series, directed by Brett Gaylor, is composed of 7 short episodes that educate people about who could be tracking them through the internet and how much of their private information can they access. What is most amazing about this experience is that it uses your own personal information, acquired through the web, to demonstrate how little privacy we actually have.

While watching it, I already knew some of the things it showed me, like how ads and news that I see on my social networks are specifically addressed to me because of things like my browser history or online purchases I’ve made. But what really had an impact on me was how they use my location, my likes on Facebook, my posts, the places I visit the most, and basically everything I do on the internet to create a psychological profile of who I am as a person, including who I would vote for,  based on my behavior.

Although some of this information was already known by me, it is still a very serious matter that I think people should be more aware of. Most of them just take the internet for granted and care too little about issues like Internet neutrality or the recent scandal surrounding Facebook. They should be educated about the full reach of the web and be able to learn how to defend themselves and their personal information. Even if they don’t have anything to hide, privacy is a basic human right, and the idea of foreign companies or strangers being able to violate it and access private stuff is honestly very scary.

Here are a couple of videos that highlight some of this problems:

Entry #15: War of the Gods

Power of GOD

Under mysterious circumstances, God has disappeared, along with his angels; even the Devil is nowhere to be seen. In his absence, minor deities have begun to rise from their ancient slumber, determined to reclaim the mortal world. The Greek, Norse, Egyptian, and all the other gods from every religion engage in a celestial war for control; and humanity is caught in the middle. In an effort to stop the chaos and death, a group of humans go in search of the missing supreme being who’s disappearance started the war, God. But the other deities have noticed, and they’ll do anything in their divine power to stop them.

Entry #14: Everyone lives

Heaven

Heaven has become too crowded. Because of this, management has started to organize different tests and trials to see who gets to stay and who has to reincarnate and live life all over again. People are not happy about this, they where promised an eternity in paradise! But the thing is that nobody knows what the requirements are to stay or leave. They’ve become desperate, trying to cheat their way into staying or avoid taking the tests; some are even looking for a way to escape Heaven and sneak into Hell. This is not a story about survival, this is a story about everyone trying to stay dead
