focus on one alternative website or news channel)? In looking at articles I found on New York Times and Aljazeera, the articles on Aljazeera seemed to be a little more opinionated than of those from the New York Times. On Aljazeera, I found articles published by actual activists who have strongly supported the Revolution, writing what they think, such as what Obama should be doing to help the Egyptian revolution. I didn’t read any editorial pieces from the New York Times on Egypt, so the articles I read seemed to stick to just reporting the facts. 6. What is the current situation in X country? Has it improved or gotten worse? How can you tell? While Mubarak has been out of power in Egypt for 9 months now, the ideal government that the protesters desired still has not been put into place. Currently, an 18-member council of the military’s top leaders is in power in Egypt. While some changes to laws have been made, the ‘state-of-emergency’ laws are still in place as was the case when Mubarak was in power. A new president or Parliament has not been elected since the resignation of Mubarak, and the military council has said that they will continue to hold power in the government.

The protesters once again marched the streets of Egypt in rebellion against the military rule that is still currently in place. The protests have once again gotten violent, with the protesters getting into riots with the military. Overall, the situation in Egypt has not changed that much from the original protests in January and February of 2011 to now. 7. What is the most powerful image you can find from the protests? What makes it so powerful to you?

( ) Of all the pictures I looked through, this was the most powerful image that I could find from the protests. What makes this image so powerful is the sheer size of the gathering at Tahrir Square. How so many people were able to organize and gather at one place is an amazing sight to see. This image demonstrates just how unified and organized the protests and movements were in the revolution, which led to the eventual resignation of Mubarak. People of all social and economic classes joined together to fight for a single

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
