The Media and Social Problems

The mass media plays a large role in modern society. Indeed, many have argued that people spend more time watching television than in actual human interaction. The film industry is a billion dollar a year enterprise and most individuals tune in daily to their favorite radio station. With all this power, one would think that the mass media would be in an excellent position to initiate social change, positively affect social problems, and help combat social ills that are considered deviant. However, the mass media has largely failed in addressing social problems and if anything, has contributed to the problems that exist in this society. As seen through its presentation of the three major variables of race, class, and gender, the mass media has actually contributed to the social problems it covers, reinforcing them and the various stereotypes that exist, creating a vicious cycle in which these problems continue.

7 Striking Features of Meteorjs

When Node.js arrived in the market, it was quickly adopted by a vast community of individual developers and large-scale companies for being a viable development technology. It is because of the fact that it allowed server-side implementation of JavaScript. Node.js gave a big boost to the development of mobile and web applications.

Earlier developers had to continuously switch contexts between JavaScript and a server language like PHP. It caused a lot of hassle since similar functions had different names in JavaScript and PHP. Node.js put an end to this by offering a platform to use JavaScript everywhere. Since then, a lot of Node.js frameworks like Sails.js, Geddy.js, Total.js and others were developed and released in the market. Though these frameworks are very useful, they lack some modern features as well as learning resources.

Why Is Our Government and Media Obsessed With Russian Hacking and Trump’s Favorable Opinion of Putin

Most of the media seems obsessed with the idea that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because of Russian interference. The media is also convinced that being friendly with Russia is the wrong approach, and that Putin is manipulating Trump. In addition, although they have often lied to us, every one seems willing to believe our various security agencies. To see the truth one must cut through the fog of our government’s propaganda.

Before I get into the meat of this article, let me briefly explain our relationship with Russia. Russia and China are at the top of our government’s enemy list. When a government is on a wartime budget, as the US is, it needs enemies, and these enemies must be painted as devils who are out to get us. As we try to disengage from the Mideast, the government and corporate interests must find a new bogeyman to frighten our citizens with; our frightened citizens always allow massive expenditures on the military and their weapons. Now, we in the US have been setting up Russia to replace Islam as our bogeyman. Fighting a cold war with Russia is easier than fighting numerous guerrilla wars that can last decades.

Defibrillators

Defibrillators remain the best tools for reviving patients during cardiac arrests. Defibrillators can be found in almost every hospital room today along with the first aid kit. Experiments with defibrillation started in the late 19th century, but it wasn’t until 1947 that a defibrillator was first used to resuscitate a human being: a 14 year old patient of Doctor Claude Beck. Beck used his still-not-properly-tested defibrillator when the 14-year-old’s heart stopped in the middle of open heart surgery.

How Social Media Is Affecting Current Fashions and Trends

In the past, the fashion world has seemed like a place out of reach to the general public. A mysterious place; which only the rich and famous could be part of. These days, however, thanks to the revolution of social media, this world has opened up, and everyone can join in and share experiences. Social media has had a huge impact on fashions and trends.

One of the leading examples of social media which has affected fashion is blogging. The demand for blogging has increased immensely over the past few years, and more people are becoming involved in this way of connecting with each other. Fashion bloggers report on the latest fashions and trends via relevant websites, before they reach magazines, and interestingly, we now see bloggers sitting in the front row of catwalk shows. A place which was previously reserved for only celebrities and designers. The reason there is such a huge interest in this form of social media, is not only because we can usually relate to the writer, but also because they have the ability to report on the latest trends instantly after the shows have taken place. This diminishes the need to wait weeks or months on magazines being published, or websites updated. It also gives us a platform to interact and communicate with each other.
