Have you ever wondered how much energy your family us in a day? In our world today we have all kinds of new knowledge and technology to help us save energy available for us. Some of this comes in the form of light bulbs and other is just to train family members to shut the light off when they walk out of the room. Either way with a product or by turning a light off we should all do our best to save energy. I believe this is a moral issue because some people just do not care how much electricity they waist or that by using certain products they could save our planet from pollution. Pollution is another issue that is big concern in our world today. The community where I live has a chemical plant not far from it and over the years there have been many struggles to get them to dispose of their wastes properly. This is our world and if we do not take care of it by conserving energy and limiting pollution what will it be like for our children and grand children? Will there even be a world? Will there be diseases worse than cancer? These issues I believe are more of moral issue than anything else and it all comes down to respecting others as well as our homes and environments. To solve these issues I believe that there should be training available in the schools, work places and communities. Factories that have chemicals or cause any other kind of pollution should be punished for not obeying the laws and regulations on dumping wastes. Every employee should be made to take part in training for how to properly expose of waste without polluting our environment. I mean every employee that works for them. By providing training to them all then if they heard or seen something done wrong they could help resolve it. To help with using less energy, I believe some of the products on the market are way too expensive for the average household so they should be made less…...

...Entry 1 Week 1 Understanding the definition of ‘Public Relations’ was daunting me from the minute I pressed send on my UCAS application. I had studied Fashion PR at The Fashion Retail Academy so I had a vague idea of what it was all about but began panicking when the thought occurred to me that I might be asked to go for an interview before being offered a place at University. What would I say if someone asked me in an interview what ‘Public Relations’ is? I began my research straight away into finding the perfect definition by purchasing Public Relations for Dummies from Amazon. This gave me a better understanding of what it was all about but it was still very difficult to grasp a short punctual definition of what Public Relations stands for. ‘What is PR?’ was the title for my first lecture which filled me with ease as I then became aware that I probably wasn’t meant to start university knowing exactly what public relations stood for. As the lecture went on it became apparent that actually defining Public Relations is a very difficult task and that there are many definitions, however a main word that comes up again and again when describing public relations is ‘communicating’. Entry 2 Week 2 I have had my first lecture on the module ‘Media and Cultural Landscapes’ finding it challenging and difficult to get my head around but on the other hand extremely interesting. Marxism was a critical theory that we talked about very briefly and as I don’t know a lot about......

Editorial Evaluation

...Editorial Evaluation (Crumley) “The Dismissed DSK Case: Everyone’s A Loser” is the article selected for the editorial evaluation. This article was written by Bruce Crumley which was published in Time magazine on August 24, 2011. This is about the dismissed sexual assault case charged by Nafissatou Diallo, a hotel maid, against Dominque Strauss-Khan (DSK), who was then an International Monetary Fund chief. (2011) Just by the title (Crumley) “Everyone’s A Loser” the reader can already tell that it is literally the inference of the author after the case was dismissed. The author maintained his inference by describing the effects of the case to both parties and to most of the readers. (2011) The author pointed out the inferences of Diallo’s supporters that “they were thrown under the bus by the prosecutors” with their assumption that the prosecution was “fearful of losing a high profile attempted rape case against a rich and powerful man”. According to the supporters, the prosecutors requested for a dismissal “based on lies she told that had nothing to do with her accusations of assault.” The “lies had nothing to do with the accusations” had been identified as a statement of appeal to prejudice by poisoning the well because the request for dismissal was 25 pages and there were other facts why the prosecutor made his inference and decided to request for dismissal. Consequently, Diallo became a loser because her attacker was now free although she could pursue a civil case.......

...Axia College Material Appendix A Midterm Exam • Access the Week Four Electronic Reserve Readings located under the materials section of your student website. • Read this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings. • Write a paragraph of approximately 100 words for each section listed below. 1. Using the critical thinking skills you have gained so far and referring to the materials provided for this assignment, identify two possible strategies that Thomas Hutchinson or Samuel Adams likely used to develop and improve their thinking as those historical events unfolded prior to taking a stand and acting according to their beliefs. Samuel Adams may have used strategy one: analyzing a single statement for what is means by asking yourself if the statement makes sense and if so responding with a yes or no answer. Adams was not only an extremist but a political writer speaking to issues that directly affected colonies like the Stamp Act and tea distribution from East India. Both of these events affected many colonists in a negative way because the Stamp Act added taxation to certain products, while India tea imports, caused some colonists to lose money from their own tea sells. Adams would have had to ask himself why these acts where just or unjust by analyzing them individually in a literal sense. He publicly came to the conclusion that these acts were unjust because they both caused colonists to lose money and also put a damper on their personal values and......

Editorial

...THE ANALYSIS OF THE EDITORIAL The editorial is entitled “Power plant emissions verified remotely at Four Corners sites, largest point source pollution in U.S.”. The editorial reveals a grave danger of the new form of pollution. The article was published on the 20th of May, 2014 on the website http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/05/140520100527.htm. The author of the article is a well-known science correspondent Nick Collins. The article is addressed to the people who are concerned about the environment. Basically, the main thing here is that a critical barrier to any aimed towards controlling greenhouse and pollutant gas emissions is our inability to verify inventories and reduction of emissions claimed by individual nations following implementation of new. The author of the article provides a survey of a recent research. According to this research, using satellite-based remote-sensing equipment can allow scientists, and therefore policymakers, to determine with accuracy whether (CO2), carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides detected in the vicinity are truly from the plant. The article outlines the results of the survey, conducted by some well-known researchers. The author also monitored the isotopic 13C composition of CO2, which serves as a fingerprint of emissions from power plants and matched it to that of the local coal. The author's remote observations also show that 75 percent of the atmosphere (~10 km) in the region containing these two......

Blogs

...In a short span of five years, blogs have invaded our culture and left an indelible mark on society. From Politics to Journalism, blogs are reshaping our notion of how content is created and information is disseminated. Before the popularity of blogging and the internet the main sources of news were television and newspapers. The content and perspective of the news was decided by the media. It was easy for them to stretch the truth, omit important issues, portray problems as more or less serious than reality, and show the point of view that they wanted the public to see. The internet changed the way our news was delivered, and blogs in particular have affected the news industry greatly. Unlike before where some executive decided what the country should and shouldn't be told about, it is now possible for any individual to publish news on the internet. This has changed the news industry dramatically from a consumers point of view. The executives can still try to control which stories are published and which point of view to portray, but online we can find the real truths more easily. Not only can we find out what happened from various view points, we can read individual people's thoughts and feelings about the stories. We can see what various experts think about situations and events, as well as the general public opinions. Another benefit for consumers is that we can filter the types of news we choose to read. Television news often shows world events, sporting events and a......

...24-hour challenge of Internet disconnection Last Sunday, I had an experience which I challenged myself – I asked myself not to communicate via the Internet for 24 hours in order to see how I would feel without contacting with the world through the Internet. I decided to stay disconnected with the social media in a day, the challenge started at 8am on 14/03/2015. This blog entry is to show my activities within the challenge. 8.00am (14/03/2015) I woke up and turned off wifi and mobile data completely. I did not turned off my cellphone because I love taking pictures, I want to capture moments of life – therefore I can use camera of my cellphone to make it. 8.30am It was considered early to me to wake up at this time. I got out of bed and did my personal hygiene in the morning. Turned back to my room, I decided to clean my room after busy weeks with schoolwork. Normally, I use my phone to check out my Facebook and messages, but I did not do it. I was quite satisfied to see my neat room. 9.15am I was hungry, I made instant noodle as a breakfast. I started feeling uncomfortable without using social media. Well, I really wanted to make it, so I continued the challenge. 10.00am After eating and cleaning stuff in the kitchen, I played some nice and sweet pieces of music on the piano. I really enjoyed it and did not think of what was happening in the social media. I played for 2 hours which made me have a calm mind. 12 noon I felt that I should check out my media account......

...update about Blogspot to Google’s Security Blog http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.com/2015/09/https-support-coming-to-blogspot.html. Since 2008, we've worked to encrypt the connections between our users and Google servers. Over the years we've announced that Search, Gmail, Drive, and many other products have encrypted connections by default, and most recently, we've made a similar announcement for our ads products. In this same vein, today we're expanding on the HTTPS Everywhere mission and beginning an initial rollout of HTTPS support for Blogspot. HTTPS is a cornerstone of internet security as it provides several important benefits: it makes it harder for bad actors to steal information or track the activities of blog authors and visitors, it helps check that visitors open the correct website and aren’t being redirected to a malicious location, and it helps detect if a bad actor tries to change any data sent from Blogger to a blog visitor. While this initial rollout won’t support all of our Blogger users, we wanted to take the first step to make HTTPS available for Blogspot; for those users who want to try it early. We’re rolling this out gradually and Blogspot authors interested in enabling HTTPS support can begin opting-in today. Simply log into http://www.blogger.com, click on the blog you’d like to make HTTPS enabled, navigate to the Settings page, and select "yes" for "HTTPS Availability". Unfortunately, blogs with custom domains are not supported......

...1. Post One: Write a narrative from your school experience that encapsulates an important lesson you and perhaps others were able to learn. How did/has this experience shape (d) you? Refer to Chapter Three for ideas to help generate your blog ideas. Chapter three presents various lessons that a student like me can be able to learn from and relate to. My school experience in is rather diverse since living in a multicultural city like Miami, I interact with people from different ethnic backgrounds and learn a lot from them. Their languages, beliefs, traditions, culture in general. There are several experiences that emerge from this chapter that encapsulate how I feel and what I have learned through time; but the experience that seriously shaped me as a student and even though the story is somehow sad, taught me a great lesson about hope and never giving up. This was when I had already given up going to college after almost not being able to graduate from high school since I had to start working full time at 16 years old to be able to economically help my family. I couldn’t bare so many responsibilities being so immature. The intensiveness of the work and school at such a young age truly made a big difference in my life. It made me a more responsible and mature person. I had apportioned my time to play an important role in shaping my family at the same time playing a role as a student and as an employee. Just like soldiers in the field, I have struggled a great deal to......

...3 REASONS WHY THE GAS REPLACER WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE January 30, 2016 For the past few years I’ve had privilege to work with some of the brightest and the most innovative group of people in the industry. Their effort in research and development lead to the production of a device that will change the way we fuel our cars. The Gas Replacer will transition a gas-powered engine to run on Biofuels. Since this device is unprecedented, there are many questions out there about the product. Should I buy it? What are the benefits of installing one? (D1) I have narrowed it down to three main benefits of purchasing and installing The Gas Replacer: 1. More money in your wallet. Gasoline is expensive. I know you felt your pain in the recent times when filling up your car. Biofuels will help you save money. They are easier to grow and can be produced year after year. They can also be grown domestically minimizing our dependency on imports. All these reasons make biofuels cheaper and therefore you richer. 2. Support Environment. Become eco friendly and do your part of taking care of our environment. The carbon monoxide emitted by burning of Biofuels is drastically lower compared to the carbon emission from gas fuels. I guarantee this will make you feel good about yourself and the company you work for. 3. Help the economy. While our economy is still rebounding from recession, you can help the recovery by purchasing The Gas Replacer. Using biofuels reduces the need to import...

...Counterterrorism Blog offers itself as "unique, multi-expert … one-stop gateway to the counterterrorism community." Entries are soberly reported right–leaning comments on a wide range of terrorist groups, global terrorism issues and the war on terror. The site is especially good at raising and weighing terrorist and related threat issues. Inside Iraq Inside Iraq blogs are written by Iraqi journalists who are working for McClatchy Newspaper (an American syndicate). The bloggers from Baghdad and the provinces share what their lives are like in the shadow of an incomplete war. They offer a wonderful supplement to the news, whether commenting on Iraqi politics, their kids' accomplishments, or their views of Iraq's past and future. Afghanistan Conflict Monitor The Afghanistan Conflict Monitor collects article on Afghanistan and Pakistan from the point of view of war and security. Attacks, plans, Taliban and Al Qaeda activities, and news about deployed forces from Canada, the United States and elsewhere are frequent items.

Blog as a Form of Popular Communication

...Blog as a Form of Popular Communication In 2005 spring, a 16 years old boy from southern U.S. decided to tell his parents he was a gay and he did not take it well. Thus, his parents decided to send him to a Christian “straight camp” to get him back on the right path. He poured his emotions into a blog on his MySpace.com website which was accessible to the whole Internet. In his posting, he raised the idea of suicide and harming his parents and he wrote his emotional anguish about the camp, including a strict list of rules he would be living upon in next several weeks before leaving for the camp. Within one day, his postings began spreading among blogosphere, provoking a political demonstrating, a state investigation and international new coverage eventually (Tremayne, 2007). The impact of the experience on him remains unclear, but the whole event suggests that the power and dominance of blog in transmission of information and message are evidence comparing with the pre-blog era, in which his story unlikely spreads out further than the circle of his family and friends. According to Gunn and Brummett (2004), among communication studies scholars, “popular communication concerns the study of objects that are widely circulated by means of mass media” (p. 708). In early time, the most popular objects of analysis were radio, television, advertisements and films. However, along with the Internet matures and becomes essential in people’s daily life, new types of popular......

Week 1 Hum 111

...Week 1 assignment editorial blog entry April 14, 2012 HUM 111 Global warming has become a great concern amongst many people throughout the world because people are finally starting to realize that through all this horrible pollution we are killing are planet more and more rapidly each and every day. According to ("Global Warming And Climate Changes", 2012) our planet is hotter today than it has been in two thousand years. If the current trends continue, by the end of the century our planet may become too hot for human civilization to live on. We (the U.S.) are driving these climate changes by burning fossil fuels, such as, coal and oil. Coal fired power plants are the one thing that produces the most pollution within the U.S. I admire what the Greenpeace organization does because they are trying to get factories/companies to stop burning coal and other fossil fuels and start a clean energy movement. I think companies need organizations like this to make them realize that their processes are really destroying our planet at a rapid rate and something really needs to be done to conserve some of the natural resources and not destroy our planet so quickly. Not only are America’s coal-burning plants destroying our planet, but they are also making our children sick, poisoning our waters and air, and killing tens of thousands of innocent people every year. Again, according to ("Global Warming And Climate Changes", 2012) over the next few years Greenpeace will be doing a......
