• Do the lives of the famous have the right to conceal aspects of their decision? In Zoe Nauman’s newspaper article “How truth and lies mingle in Lara Bingle's nude photo scandal” and Geoffrey Robertson’s case study “Diana In the Dock” we are subject to the controversy of 2 personalities both conflicting in their own perspectives. Zoe Nauman’s article, published on the 16th of May 2012 in The Sunday Telegraph, portrays the different perspectives of Lara Bingle and her alleged right to privacy after photos were taken of her in her Beachside Penthouse in Bondi, completely naked with her curtains open. • Today I will represent Lara Bingle’s personality and her two voiced beliefs and their predominantly contrasting elements. Bingle’s conflicting perspectives include the clashing aspects in which she calls her legal rights to privacy coincided with her 2nd supposed right which includes her desired involvement in the media and fame.
“The construction of gender stereotyping of both males and females in the media is based on outdated and unfounded beliefs and therefore has had and continues to have a detrimental impact on society.” (Yes!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUyfD1F7k1I Women are subjected to many stereotypes in today’s society. Movies and television shows suggest that all women are airheads, whose sole purpose in life is to please men and rear children. Magazines and other advertisements push photographs of very slender, over groomed and “sexy women” into our minds. Men’s magazines write articles on how to seduce a girl into sleeping with them.
And, more importantly, why? In the end, the Tobacco company finds out that the person they trusted was not in fact a person to believe. "In this, the biggest tobacco trial yet, with the biggest plaintiff's lawyers lined up with millions, his beloved Marlee would hand him a verdict." She lied and the trusting flitch fell for her lies. She took 10 million dollars from him but once the lawyers found out that both of her parents had died because of smoking-related, lung cancer deaths she wisely gave it back.
That’s the reason why 9/10 victims of rape are female. In music videos we typically see male rappers singing with young women dancing around them in skimpy clothing and offering themselves to them. An example is the music video for ‘Hotel Room Service’ by Pitbull, where the first comment I saw was ‘ 99% porn, 1% music, 0% hair’. The video has nearly 45 and half million views and I cant see it been taken down even though its been compared to porn. Another example is of a song by Rihanna titled ‘S&M’ which those which should defiantly be kept of all radio stations.
We have YouTube videos such as the infamous video last year of Miss Teen America contestant from South Carolina, Caitlin Upton. She was asked why she thinks a fifth of Americans can’t locate America on the Map. She responded with some gibberish. From this video we get the idea that 20% of Americans are so stupid that they can’t find on a map their own country, you know, the one that is usually fairly large . .
13) This form of thinking is naïve because one just has to look at the news to see what technology without regulations has done to the environment, people and our future. We still see and some of us feel the backlashes of what technology has brought from global warming to cancer caused by asbestos. We now see that “The myth of technology as unmitigated blessing was destroyed.” (pg. 14) With that said, we must not lean toward the contrasting view of a techno pessimist which tends to emphasize the risks and costs of technological changes; believe that many social ills are attributed to technology; and think that technology needs to be controlled or is incapable of being controlled.

Khiara Davis Ms. Wallace English 101 21 October 2013 BEING Ana The Pro-Ana communities is a group that specifically promotes or encourages the loss of weight through the means of anorexia. The community predominantly represents a group of girls, mainly teens to young adults, from all over the United States that participate in this campaigning. The weight loss occurs through acts of bulimia, purging, and even fasting. The first big online Pro-Ana community was established around the year 2001, but was gradually cut short and banned due to the disapproval of many parents and family physicians. This community is set up and acts as a social network where members are allowed to chat with and add each other as friends in order to warmly
In 1992 she published her third and most controversial portfolio called “Immediate Family”. In this series of photos Mann presents several small children, many exposed and in some cases completely nude. These photos not only ignited arguments about the morality of the photos but also about their legitimacy. A federal prosecutor in Roanoke, VA informed Mann that no fewer than eight pictures she had chosen for the traveling exhibition could subject her to arrest (Woodward). Despite the clear laws against publicly showing child nudity, she has never been charged with any crime as a result of her infamous art shows.
Some even die because of trying to fix a certain mold of what is beautiful. As Jared Plokin states, “The media is currently at war with women's body image” (1). On the cover of magazines there are pictures with celebrities’ in bathing suits stating “the best and worst beach bodies”, when women are reading these types of
As explained by Paul Gray, therein lies a technological paradox, that environmental deterioration is brought about by the industrial economy, but the progression of this industrial economy is and will be the road to successful environmental stewardship (Ausubel, 1989). This commentary examines both the pessimistic and optimistic points of technological development to conclude that neither point of view is entirely correct. It will show that technological innovation can be positive for both humans and the environment, but that a healthy dose of skepticism and precaution should be applied nonetheless. It is easy to see how technological innovation could spark the interest of the general public, fascinated as humans are by the prospect of “progression.” While appealing, many of the proposed solutions simply will not work or will worsen the situation, cause significantly more environmental damage and will not be available until the effects have contributed to long-term climate change (Fauset, 2010). Presently, the sum of our technological solutions are not enough to effectively curb the destruction of our environment.
