at the University of Hawaii as a professor in Political Science and Women's

Ferron, Adam. "Don't Trust the Mainstream Western Media When It Comes to Women's
Activism in the Arab World." Muftah. Muftah, 10 Mar. 2015. Web. 27 Apr.
2015. <http://linkis.com/muftah.org/dont-trus/ZLzTs>. In this
article, Adam Ferron discusses the misconceptions most Western media
creates when depicting women protests and activism, specifically the
driving ban in Saudi Arabia. Adam Ferrons finds that women activists in
Saudi Arabia and the Arab world are depicted as recent heros, when in
truth, these women have fought for many years and are proud of their
nation. Published on March 10, 2015, this article offers up-to-date
information. As the ban on women driving is a current struggle, recent
information on protests and political views is essential to understand the
debate. The information is credible because the author is informed on the
topic, and the article quotes experts. The author Adam Ferron has a
Master’s in near and Middle Eastern Politics from the SOAS, University of
London, and a Bachelor’s in the Economics and Social Studies from the
University of Manchester. Adam has done research with the UK Foreign and
Commonwealth office, and Adam helped create the UK counter-terrorism policy
when he worked for the UK Local Government. The author also quotes the
credible expert Manal al-Sharif, a crucial protester on the ban on women
driving Manal al-Sharif. Muftah, the publisher of the website is also a
credible source because the aim of the website is to accurately represent
minority groups that Western media portrays poorly. In regards to my topic,
ending the ban on women driving in Saudi Arabia, this article is relevant
because it discusses the ban itself, the way Western media inaccurately
portrays the ban and other protests, and views from protesters Western
media would overlook.
Muir, John. Our National Parks. N.p.: John Muir, 1901. Print. In this editorial,
John Muir, argues the importance of preservation of nature, concluding that
national parks are necessary to keep nature the same, specifically around
sierra Nevada. Published in 1901, this source offers dated information. Now
the geography of the sierra and the topics of preservation have changed
over time, John Muirs exact feelings towards preserving nature have not.
Making this primary source a perfect base for how john Muir approached and
backed evidence for preserving nature. The author is an expert in this
field, as evidenced by his several years spent living in yosemite gathering
information and creating theories that are still widely accepted today. In
regards to my topic , preserving nature, this editorial is relevant because
it discusses reasons to preserve nature from the perspective of John Muir
National Public Radio. "The Heat Wave of 1896 and the Rise of Roosevelt."
NPR. NPR, 11 Aug. 2010. Web. 25 Apr. 2015. <http://www.npr.org/
templates/story/story.php?storyId=129127924>. In this report, the staff
of National Public Radio, detail the heat wave occurance in the summer of
1896 in New York City; which killed about 1,500 people, and a majority came
from residents that lived in compacted tenements. Their finding was
that the majority that died was due to the lack of space and windows inside
the tenements if they stayed inside, but outside would had been no
different. Published in 2010, this source offers dated information. It will
not support Jacob Riis directly, but the incident will help back up for my
project/character's reasons for change. National Public Radio quote
credible experts, including Ed Kohn, author of "Hot Time in the Old
Town" and which the book was based of the heat wave occurance of 1896.
Edward Kohn is assistant professor of American History and Chair of the
American Culture and Literature Department at Bilkent University. He has
also written two other books on history-fiction. In regards to my topic,
Jacob Riis, this article is somewhat relevant because it discusses one of
the issues tenement housing burdened and could be used as an argument for
reconstruction of housing laws and its environment.

the article was later edited and republished tells me that the source is
reliable, and more importantly, the author and magazine wish to ensure
that its readers are well informed. The author, Neil deGrasse Tyson is
an expert in his field, with a degree in Astrophysics and Cosmology. In
regards to my topic, Neil deGrasse Tyson, this magazine article is
relevant. It explores much of Tyson's reasoning behind striving to get
more federal funding for NASA, which is a major part of my project.
