So, partly as a result of forgetting that people online are still real, and partly because they don't know the conventions, well-meaning cybernauts, especially new ones, make all kinds of mistakes. The book Netiquette has a dual purpose: to help net newbies minimize their mistakes, and to help experienced cyberspace travelers help the newbies. The premise of the book is that most people would rather make friends than enemies, and that if you follow a few basic rules, you're less likely to make the kind of mistakes that will prevent you from making friends. The list of core rules below, and the explanations that follow, are excerpted from the book. They are offered here as a set of general guidelines for cyberspace behavior.
However, the author believes that the actual alcohol isn't the problem but instead the problem is the law of 21 being the legal age for drinking. Seaman thinks that because the underage kids are prohibited to drink legally they are more tempted to do it but if the drinking limit were to be lowered to 18 then yes at first they would drink a lot but eventually they would get bored of it and they'd settle down to get their other priorities straight. Hence, Barrett Seaman hopes that pre gamers are allowed to come out so they can begin to learn to have control over alcohol like any adult. I really liked this essay, it’s something that I’ve had experience with, not so much as the underage drinking, but pre gaming before going out was something that I
This includes both payment and recognition and is the reason behind copyright laws. One of several misconceptions many people have about plagiarism and copyright protection is that it does not apply to material on the Internet. But the truth is that words, pictures, and songs available on the Internet are as likely to be copyrighted as anything you might find in the library or the record store. Doing anything other than viewing the information on the Internet probably requires permission at least and perhaps payment. You can no more download and share Internet content, in most cases, than you can walk out of a music store with a handful of CD's you didn't pay
We all know that kids go around our back to parties and have a few drinks with friends but not many parents will stop this. This is not good, this is what is encouraging them to be worse later on. Firstly they are testing there boundaries, which if there are none, will make them believe they can do anything and get away with it, these habits would carry on into their later years when it comes to driving and they will become reckless because they believe that they can get away with anything. Secondly we shouldn’t be encouraging underage drinking because it will inflict an addiction onto our children that is close to impossible to shake off, if the kids are getting drunk every weekend at the age of 15 or 16 imagine what would happen to those same kids at 19 or 20? Melbourne's Murdoch Children's Research institute has done a study where 1520 teenagers drinking habits have been tracked for 10 years.
Criticizing people for being too passive in their convictions is not an uncommon complaint in this day and age, especially of young people. In fact, common disparagements of youth mirror Postman’s description of Brave New World almost perfectly. Postman writes of Huxley’s vision, “People will come to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think,” just as adults often say their children would rather text than have a real conversation, or go on Facebook than read a book. The complaint is not without validity, but it seems unfair to lay all the blame on Generation Y. The parents and grandparents of those disinterested teenagers and yuppies come from a generation that burned its draft cards and protested racism,
Although many people are against that, others have felt it was right even necessary. Yes teens make mistakes and do unnecessary things, but treating them as adult’s isn’t the right thing to do. Juveniles shouldn’t be punished as adults, because they’re still maturing and still have the mind of a child. Teenagers often don’t have the mind of an adult, so why try them as one? In Adam Liptak’s article “ Locked Away Forever” published in The New York Times he tells us of the case of Joe Sullivan, who was charged with sexually
April 2, 2012 Malcolm X Essay The Autobiography of Malcolm X did come across some inappropriate moments. For example, the drug dealing, gambling, sex, and race. In my opinion, parents should not object the material in the autobiography because it is material students should know and be aware of. Things like this happen in the real world and parents do not want their children to be completely oblivious to their bad surroundings. Even though there was a lot of things in the Autobiography that parents may not find okay for students to read, they need to understand that things like that can happen anywhere in the world.
However, you need to stop believing the gaming stereotypes the news puts out; gaming doesn't turn good people bad, it just gives people entertainment. In fact, tests show that gaming is more of a stress relief than most after school activities. People shoot up schools, rob people and such and then use gaming as a scapegoat just because they can. It is not gaming's fault; those people really are just bad people. The game was not the key master to unlock the beast within.
The people who create have worked hard and deserve for their product to be protected but with the ease of access, most of the time they are not. There are laws that have been put into place but with the mass amount of copying being done illegally, it would be safe to assume that it is nearly impossible to stamp out this issue. Also like music, software is just as easy to unethically easy to steal, for instance, there are many websites like Utorrent that can help one illegally access and download software, the creators of this software have not allowed this but with technology growing so does the human awareness of how to take advantage. Many people have figured out how to “crack” software to where they can get into the mainframe of the software to access it, also people have created what is known as keygens or key generators. With this application, you can create a key to input into the software much like the key you get when you purchase the product, this again is wrong and unethical.
Regrettably, MP3 files are not secure and once someone has acquired a file nothing stops them from making other copies from it. Unlike the copies made using analogue mediums such as cassette tape recorders, all copies made using digital technology are identical to the original file (Fisher, 2000: II). As a result stricter laws are being introduced and music producers are frowning upon the file sharers, more commonly known as ‘leakers’. This has had an effect upon artist’s attitudes and careers as they are likely to have their music leaked thus meaning they aren’t profiting as much for their work, whereas the file sharers are receiving the benefits. The pirates are making copies of
