With David, there were not any specific physical features that set him apart from the rest other that he looked completely different from the real Bud which no one in Pleasantville seemed to notice. Then there are the feelings. In The Giver the people in the community are capable of having feelings, they are just suppressed by pills. In Pleasantville, there were no feelings until David and Mary-Sue (Jennifer) showed the people of Pleasantville what it was all about. Then, once they started to change within themselves into what they would be like in modern times, they start to see color.
(Sowers, Campbell, and Key) He exaggerated and exploited the evidence and ruined many reputations. The phrase "witch-hunts" derived from the hearings due to the similarity to the Salem witch trials. The Salem witch trial is analogous to the McCarthy trials of 1950; in both situations wide spread hysteria occurs, deriving from existing fears of the people of that era. The Salem witch hunt trials parallel the McCarthy era in three crucial aspects: unwarranted accusations, hostile interrogations of many innocent people, and they demonstrated how hard times lead to society's need to find a scapegoat. The unwarranted accusations that Joseph McCarthy and the citizens of Salem made are what fueled the widespread hysteria in both situations.
After watching Stupidity directed by Albert Nerenberg, Stupidity exposes many conflicts on why people are so stupid and how they are “too dumb” to research the true facts before speaking their mind out to the public. Stupidity features interviews of the average people on what stupidity means to them. According to the film, the main reason why people are stupid is mostly for entertainment. People want to do the craziest things they can possibly do so that they can see their face come on the morning news. The media has a huge control on what is being watched on television.
Notice that these days in our society everywhere we look, violence is there;the streets, alleys, school, and even at home. Violence can even find its way into our homes through TV that we watch on regular bases. The amount of violence shown in the media has formed a lot of arguments. Many video games, television programs, adverts, films and music lyrics show different forms of violence. Some people feel that there is too much violence shown in the media.
People in America have many views when it comes to the effects video games have on children. A lot of people think that violent games are not healthy and serve as a wasteful source of entertainment. There are so many negative opinions concerning violent video games. Critics say, “violent games are a pretty poison for society, fancy blood and fireworks with no redeeming value. They say that video games take innocent young children and taint them with images of fiery destruction.” Video games are one of the hottest media sellers on today’s market, but how do they affect our children?
Television has become part of everyday life. With the growing fixation and attraction to violence in the media, children in today’s society are becoming more violent and aggressive than ever before. However, to obtain a true understanding of this problem we must look at all aspect that cause violence, and not just put all of the blame on the media. Nevertheless, we shouldn’t forget the number one violence causing aspect, the media. Scientists have tried to explain why children are so amused by a big glowing box and the action that takes place within it.
Information technology (IT) is widely understood to be the enabling technology of the 21st century. IT has transformed, and continues to transform, all aspects of our lives: commerce and finance, education, employment, energy, health care, manufacturing, government, national security, transportation, communications, entertainment, science, and engineering. IT and its impact on the U.S. economy-both directly (the IT sector itself) and indirectly (other sectors that are powered by advances in IT)--continue to grow in size and importance. National Research Council's Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) produced the report Evolving the High Performance Computing and Communications Initiative to Support the Nation's Information Infrastructure. A graphic in that report, often called the "tire tracks" diagram because of its appearance, produced an extraordinary response by clearly linking government investments in academic and industry research to the ultimate creation of new information technology industries with more than $1 billion in annual revenue.
The TV’s many documentaries, fiction films, influences the way we think about the real and historical world, our perceptions of relationships.

Research has continued to grow into the Global Research lab bringing new technologies to the world today. Everyone has experienced some part of General Electric’s technology in their life. Technology that has came from the light bulb to the appliances, from the generators to the turbines, from the medical equipment to televisions, from the aircraft engines to trains, from commercial and consumer finance to aircraft and truck leasing. Our mission at General Election is, “to provide exceptional customer service and support to our clients and customers.” Section II Strengths and Weaknesses The electrical exhibits at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia marked the beginning of a productive new era of harnessing our imagination. Strengths #1- Technology GE has done research in all areas of technology.
