She also writes some about politicians and the Juvenile Justice system. Sternheimer points to other possible reasons for the violent acts of the youth such as, the home life. While it may be that juvenile crimes have declined and personal backgrounds effect actions, it cannot be said this proves video game violence has no effect on youth. Sternheimer begins by explaining how video games violence has become a “folk devil” (204) to explain unexplainable happenings of youth shootings and this is just the one to follow the many other explanations the media and politicians have given for problem youth. She then brings up the issue of unnerving newspaper headlines such as “Bloodlust Video Games Put Kids in the Crosshairs” (205).

How Social Media Affect Us Introduction The social media is a way to communicate with your friends, to write and upload pictures, and it’s also a way to find out about many information and news that are going on around the world. However, how does the social media help spread information around the world and how does social media affect the people who use it? This research paper focuses on the impact and effects that the social media has on people. The impacts and effects that social media has on people are news and other information are spread faster and sooner on the social networks than other places and people are more time on the computer because of social media instead of doing homework or doing a sport or even exercising.

Professor of communication Jib Fowles argues that the effects of exposure of media violence on children does not harm them and any results from such research are so slight that it can be ignored.

The article “Is Media Violence Harmful to Children?” is split into two sections and Professor Fowles is on the No side of the article.

It is necessary to admit that the article is touching because loss of close people or relatives is known to everyone. It is difficult to understand that you heard a person and the next moment that person died as a result of accident, nit because of disease at older years but in youth, when a person only starts his or her adult life, successful life. Today people prefer communicating via the Internet with the help of such programs as Facebook. People share their emotions, feelings and memorize those who died.
During the last decade, the Internet enriched our social lives and our civic connections. People use e-mail, on-line chat rooms and instant messages to communicate with each other. Even adolescents can use the Internet as the same as the older people. But, heavy use of the Net can bring some bad consequences to the adolescents more than what they do on adults. Brent Staples, in “What Adolescents Miss When We Let Them Grow Up in Cyberspace” (2004) pointed out the consequences of adolescents cruising the Net.
Are We the Dumbest Generation? Adults often argue that the intellectual ability of today’s generations has taken a turn for the worst due to the amount of technology they are exposed to as they develop mature ideals. English professor Mark Bauerlein examines in his 2008 book the effects of digital media and how it has caused young people to be more connected and technologically savvy as a result of the wide range of modern inventions, but he also asserts that this has caused them to become less intelligent; therefore, he presents the modern ages as the Dumbest Generation. Young people have a tremendous amount of information available to them due to technology through social networks, the internet, and video games. Many respectable individuals discuss on whether to call the modern generation the “dumbest generation” (Bauerlein) or realizing that they might be participating in an intellectual revolution.
