Having trouble using Wikipedia today? That's because the popular crowd-sourced online encyclopedia is participating in an "Internet blackout" in protest of two controversial anti-piracy bills: The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its Senate companion, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). Pictures: Websites go dark to protest SOPA The bills are intended to strengthen protections against copyright infringement and intellectual property theft, but Internet advocates say they would stifle expression on the World Wide Web. In essence, the legislation has pitted content providers -- like the music and film industries -- against Silicon Valley. CBS Corporation is among the media and entertainment companies that support the legislation.
“That’s not the way the media wants to take it and spin it and turn it into fear because then your watching television… news and your being pumped full of fear… it’s a campaign of fear and consumption- interview” How this alters my perspective> the media isn’t always reliable and it can be very inaccurate and misleading. It also changes my perspective in the way that the media has the power to change the way people think and believe in. Third paragraph: *The irony that the government doesn’t get blamed for the gun violence when they frequently get involved in foreign affairs (Archival footage & music) 1963-1975: American military kills 4 million civilians in south East Asia. 1991: American planes bombs Iraq on a weekly basis 2001: Osama Bin Laden uses expert CIA training to murder 3000 people. “I think that’s really ironic that nobody said maybe the president had any influence on this violent behavior.”- Interview How this alters my perspective: thinking that the government always tries to help, this makes it very contradicting, the govt.
From the research I have gathered, it seems that the e-cigarette is a safe and effective tool in smoking cessation. I have tried the nicotine patches, nicotine gum and the a few of the drugs that are supposed to assist with making a person not be dependent on nicotine and these did not work for me. The next step is to try electronic cigarettes and see where that takes me on my road to quitting traditional cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes may save me from heart disease or some form of cancer which is attributed to traditional smoking and tobacco products, that means that I will be around to see my children progress thought life and be here for my grandchildren as
America with its advanced and sophisticated technology is not safe and secured from external attacks and other terroristic activities of its citizens. Gait Recognition and CC Camera Surveillances throughout the country cannot stop terrorist attack on Bay Bridge which kills more than four thousand people. Moreover, the failure of DHS (Department of Homeland Security) to maintain law and order and its wrong concept of taking every citizen as susceptible terrorist further increase terroristic activities by the frustrated and enraged people and prove itself as an agent of organized terrorism. Marcus Yallow and his technologically well-informed friends are the product of bad schooling and bad system of the government. Clever enough to trick the constant vigilance of school administration and its complete control; they become capable to threaten DHS and even the government.
2). President Obama’s campaign said that the proposed amendment is discriminatory (Leslie, 2012, para. 2). Bill Clinton believe that the real effect of the Amendment was not to keep the traditional definition of marriage, but the real effect of the law will be to hurt families and drive away new jobs (Leitsinger, 2012, para. 5).
My friend is thinking of taking the drug Methampethamine normally known as “P”, so I am going to persuade him not to take the drugs and show the risks and effects it has after you start taking it. I think that you should not take this drug because it is an “A class drug” and it is very addictive. Not just that, it rots your teeth, makes you behave in a violent matter and has some long term effects and these can ruin your life. “P” is a very dangerous drug which makes you do a lot of stupid things that you as your normal self would not do. This has a lot of long term effects, like depression and poor health.
This might also potentially hurt the votes of the candidates running for office. However some people don’t mind, and they strongly are for the English Unity Act that they will take drastic measures to get their message across. For example, the Representative of Iowa went as far to sue his own state because they posted information on his website in languages other than English. “He claimed this violated the new English law , demonstrating that it is the job of the government to meddle with the lives of the citizens and limit their individual choices.” I believe this shows an attitude of arrogance, it gives off the wrong message. New citizens should not be deprived of things, especially if they are trying their best to learn the English
A very strong message that Boko Haram uses to promote false ideologies on their twitter website site by stating, it is okay to hate others and to bomb someone or something is divine. The intent in their message is so powerful and that they have so much hatred for the Western world, their lifestyle and accessibilities, yet they want to still reach out and attract their followers or sympathizers to join their cause through American social media websites. In another example for a way to promote their false ideologies is to reach out to the rich, poor, and troubled youth everywhere around the world. Even promoting false ideologies to children who come from loving and structurally sound environments. (Davis, 2014) mentioned terrorist groups use all governments of the Western world as well in their own region to force their ideologies on those who have really turned against their own country’s government and the system as a whole.
The Washington Times and the Washington Post, two online periodicals, posted an article about President Bush’s point of view about deportation. “Massive deportation of the people here is unrealistic. It’s just not going to work,” Mr. President said. “The biggest problem in this debate is going to be what to do with the people who are already in our country illegally.” “A person ought to be allowed to get in line. In other words, pay a penalty for being here illegally, commit him or herself to learn English, which is part of the American system, and get in the back of the line.” President Bush is against massive deportation of illegal immigrants; he states that a massive deportation won’t help the United States solve the problems with illegal
While some of the words I mention could be screamed at a fellow driver who just did something incredibly reckless, this list is meant more for discussion and published writing (including blogs). It’s meant more for the writer who, say, is tempted to call Todd Akin “crazy” for his remarks about rape in 2012, but realizes that might stigmatize people who have mental illnesses and wants a better term. Be careful with the use of ANY of these terms, as they are all controversial in some ways, inappropriate in some contexts, etc. It is not possible to compile a list of perfectly “safe” terms to describe antisocial behavior – what’s recognized as “antisocial” isn’t even the same in every culture or region. Finding the word You’ll have to ask yourself what you actually mean in order to figure out how to convey your thought to someone who’s not living in your head with you.
