In fact, many people believe that new media will one day replace traditional mainstream media outlets. However in this essay I will attempt to prove that New Media will not completely replace old media but rather change it, while transferring the power from governments and corporations, to the people. To do so I will start off by studying the users of new media and its audiences. I will then analyze the way it’s used. And finally explain how it has impacted mainstream traditional media, journalism and society as a
Author Greenfield’s Susan article, “Modern technology is changing the way our brains work, says neuroscientist”, published in MailOnline on 3rd August 2010, emphasizes technology is extensively modifying our life as human beings. The author, a neuroscientist, opposes technology that changes the physical and mental capacity of a normal human being. Greenfield Susan mentions the development of mood controlling drugs and prosthetic limbs. Greenfield asks the question, “What would such aspirations to be ‘perfect’ or ‘better’ do to our notions of identity,” concerned about individuality.

With an estimated annual savings of $40-$50 million dollars, the $64 million dollar Delta III project began in 1993, their goal, to use technology to increase their efficiency. After considerable research and product evaluation, FoxMeyer chose SAP R/3 and Pinnacle’s warehouse-automation. Andersen Consulting was chosen implement and integrate the two systems (Scott, 1999).

A phased implementation would have been less risky and would have given the implementation team a chance to test transactions more thoroughly.
You would think that training someone about the cultures and traditions of whom they will be doing business with would make sense. But, that requires a change in our thinking process about how we think about other cultures and their beliefs and values. Our text refers to a model developed by David Hoopes that takes us from Ethnocentrism to Multiculturalism (Shriberg, 2011, p. 39-40). Ethnocentrism is believing that your culture is superior to all others and you don’t even consider other cultures to Multiculturism which is the desire to learn and understand other cultures and their values and traditions ( Shriberg, 2011, p. 39-40). It is our natural tendency to think and believe that what we believe and how we traditionally do business is the best way for it to be done because it is what has worked for us.

I also chose to target the Traveler (travelers) and named that brand Aloha. The reason I chose these two markets is because both of these customers were willing to pay more for the product. Mercedes would pay $4000 and the Traveler would pay $3200.
‘Identity is a cultural construct’ Postmodern identity is transient, fluid, transnational and unstable compared to the more stable, fixed modern concept of identity. Due to industrialisation and culturalisation, countries have opened up to other cultures. There are different factors that contribute to one’s cultural and personal identity which include nationality, ethnicity, gender, race, class, influences, interests and lifestyle. Artists that address issues of postmodern identity within our world include Yasumasa Morimura, Cindy Sherman and Gordon Bennet. Yasumasa Morimura- postmodern, Japanese, contemporary photographer.
Asses the view that secularization is a feature of the contemporary UK Wilson(1996) defines secularization as the process whereby religious thinking,practice and their institutions lose their social significance. The different aspects of religious belief,practice and institutions will be taken into account when assessing whether secularization is a feature of the contemporary UK. Sociologist Bruce (2002) argues that the main reason for the growth of secularization in the UK is the growth of scientific explanations of the world and the way in which technology has been applied to society it has undermined many Religious beliefs which has led to an overall decline in belief. For example Darwins theory of evolution which challenged the creation story and the advances of in medical science mean that there is a reduced amount of people turning to religion for answers. Sociologist Weber supported this view stating that the growing disenchantment of the world will create a “desacralization of the world”.
