the narrative for the 2024
Lok Sabha elections, with
the Opposition holding
its second unity meeting
in Bengaluru starting
Monday, and the BJP re-
viving the moribund
NDAto announce its own
meeting coinciding with

For the Opposition, the
key points on the agenda
are deciding the contours
of seat-sharing, and
reaching greater coordi-
nation and communica-
tion. The BJP, which
needs to win seats from
new areas to compensate
for the inevitable decline
in the seats it won last
time, is hoping to retain
its old allies and get new
ones, to fill the gap.
The Oppn meeting in
Bengaluru follows the
first such gathering in
Patna last month to forge
an anti-BJP political
front. Meanwhile, a new,
refurbished NDA led by
the BJP is in the works,
and its first outing is
planned on Tuesday with
a meeting of the alliance
partners at a five-star ho-
tel in New Delhi. P5

OPPOSITION SEEMED DIVIDED: RATHORE CALLS
FOR WALK OUT, SENIOR MLAS KEEP ON SPEAKING
How successful was the floor management of the
opposition in the Rajasthan assembly on Monday?
Truth be told, the opposition appeared ‘scatterred’.
Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore announced a walk
out during Zero Hour, but all BJP MLAs did not listen to
him. Pratap Singh Singhvi and Vasudev Devnani kept on
speaking. Even when other MLAs told them that a walk out
has happened, still Devnani continued to speak alone. Dev-
nani was allowed to speak on his proposal by the Speaker.
Now the question is whether this will be justified while
entire opposition has not walked out of the house together?

Rajendra Rathore over
the Jodhpur gangrape
case. “This is a party of
rapists. BJPdid not speak
in this matter in the
House because the ac-
cused are from their or-
ganization,” said Lodha.
Rajendra Rathore strong-
ly objected to Lodha’s
allegations. On this,
Chairman Chairman JP
Chandelia removed the
allegations from the pro-
ceedings. After this, the
BJP MLAs created a
ruckus by coming to the
Well. MLA Vasudev
Devnani ran towards
Sanyam Lodha and
Madan Dilawar also
reached towards
Lodha. The
Speaker ad-
journed the
House for 15
minutes. Mean-
while, BJP and
RLP walked out of
the House on Monday
raising the issue of law
and order through an ad-
journment motion.
Speaking on the adjourn-
ment motion, Rajendra
Rathore said that Gehlot
Penal Code is applicable
in state instead of Indian
Penal Code.
“Look at the courage
of gangsters, threats are
given to me and MLA
Abhinesh Maharishi.
There is an attempt to ex-
tort money from Ladnun
MLA Mukesh Bhakar
and extortion is collected
from Mundavar MLA.

pointed?,” he said, add-
ing that a provision of Rs

OFANEWERAINTENNIS
fter Carlos Alcaraz’s fantastic win over
reigning champion Novak Djokovic in Wim-
bledon final a famous footwear company
came up with an ad featuring the 20-year-old cham-
pion with the line, “Don’t belong to an era start your
own”. That’s exactly what many expect young Car-
los to do after surprising the Serbian champion at
Wimbledon’s grass court. Djokovic was gracious in
acknowledging the youngster’s adaptability as he had
played only a few matches on grass before coming
to Wimbledon. He proved to be a better player on the
day it mattered and halted Djokovic’s march to a
record-matching eighth title.
Djokovic may have lost in the final but he will still
be around to test if the era of Carlos has really begun.
There are other challengers like Stefanos Tsitsipas,
FrancesTiafoe,Taylor Fritz, Holger Rune, Medvedev,
FelixAuger-Alliasime and Matteo Berrettini.The line-
up is impressive and they all hold promise of top class
tennis in the years to come. Will Carlos stand out?
A
TO WHAT EXTENT WILL
CONG TRUST KEJRIWAL
ongress Parliamentary Party chairperson So-
nia Gandhi-led Congress will be in a huddle
with 24 opposition parties in Bengaluru to
discuss issues like the grouping’s name and seat-
sharing formula. The contours still look hazy because
of a few recent developments. One of them is the
Congress agreeing to oppose the ordinance stripping
the Delhi government of its powers.
The support was Arvind Kejriwal’s pre-condition
for joining the Opposition camp. Kejriwal had said
that “unless the Congress publicly opposed the ordi-
nance, it would be very difficult for the Aam Admi
Party (AAP) to be part of any alliance. It is clear that
the AAP alone
cannot take on the
Central govern-
ment especially
as Kejriwal’s
trusted lieutenant
and Deputy Chief
Minister Manish
Sisodia continues
to languish in jail.
It is, however,
also doubtful if a
combined opposi-
tion can do much
by opposing the
ordinance.
The emphatic
conditionality
makes Kejriwal a
difficult partner.
He will be a tough
negotiator when
it comes to seat
sharing in Punjab
and in states like
Gujarat and Uttar
Pradesh. The Congress won’t be fooled into believ-
ing that the AAP has no ambition of expanding its
footprints. His presence at the conclave may be tak-
en as a temporary relief.
The latest developments in the Nationalist Con-
gress Party require a watch on Sharad Pawar. His
nephew Ajit Pawar, senior leader Praful Patel,
Chhagan Bhujbal and others called on the senior Pa-
war “to seek his blessings”. After leaving the party
and mouthing criticism the rebels wanted Sharad
Pawar to guide them! It sounds strange and incredu-
lous. Maharashtra developments will have an impact
on Opposition unity.

m a g i n e
an Octo-
ber sur-
prise like
no other:
Only a
week before Nov. 5, 2024,
a video recording reveals a
secret meeting between
Joe Biden and Volodymyr
Zelenskyy. The American
and Ukrainian presidents
agree to immediately initi-
ate Ukraine into NATO
under “the special emer-
gency membership proto-
col” and prepare for a nu-
clear weapons strike
against Russia. Suddenly,
the world is on the cusp of
Armageddon.
While journalists could
point out that no such pro-
tocol exists and social me-
dia users might notice odd
video-gamelike qualities
of the video, others might
feel that their worst fears
have been confirmed.
When Election Day comes,
these concerned citizens
may let the video sway
their votes, unaware that
they have just been ma-
nipulated by a situation
deepfake – an event that
never actually happened.
Situation deepfakes rep-
resent the next stage of
technologies that have al-
ready shaken audiences’
perceptions of reality. In
our research at the DeFake
Project, my colleagues at
the Rochester Institute of
Technology, the University
of Mississippi, Michigan
State University and I
study how deepfakes are
made and what measures
voters can take to defend
themselves from them.
IMAGINING EVENTS
THAT NEVER
HAPPENED
Adeepfake is created when
someone uses an artificial
intelligence tool, especial-
ly deep learning, to ma-
nipulate or generate a face,
a voice or – with the rise of
large language models like
ChatGPT – conversational
language. These can be
combined to form “situa-
tion deepfakes.”
DEEPFAKING
AN ELECTION
Now put yourself in the
position of someone trying
to influence the upcoming
election. What are the pos-
sible situations you might
want to create? For start-
ers, it would matter wheth-
er you wanted to tilt voting
toward or away from a spe-
cific outcome.
DEFENDING REALITY
There are a variety of tech-
nological and psychologi-
cal ways to detect and de-
fend against situation deep-
fakes. On the technological
front, all deepfakes contain
some evidence of their true
nature. Some of these tells
can by seen by the human
eye – like overly smooth
skin or odd lighting or ar-
chitecture – while others
may be detectable only by
a deepfake-hunting AI.

try to have it ready in time
for the 2024 election. But
even if a sufficiently power-
ful deepfake detector like
ours cannot be deployed by
Election Day, there are psy-
chological tools that you,
the voter, can use to identify
deepfakes: background
knowledge, curiosity and
healthy skepticism.
If you encounter media
content about a person,
place or event that seems
uncharacteristic, trust your
background knowledge.
For example, in a recent
hoax of a fire at the Penta-
gon, the building shown
looks more square than
pentagonal, which could
be a giveaway.
SOURCE: THE CONVERSATION
BE AWARE OF
DEEPFAKES
However, try not to rely en-
tirely on your background
knowledge, which could be
mistaken or patchy. Never
be afraid to learn more
from reliable sources, like
fact-checked news reports,
peer-reviewed academic
articles or interviews with
credentialed experts.
Additionally, be aware that
deepfakes can be used
to take advantage of what
you are inclined to believe
about a person, place or
event. One of the best
ways to deal with this is to
simply be aware of your
biases and be a bit guarded
about any media content
that seems to confirm them.
Even if it becomes pos-
sible to create perfect
situation deepfakes, how
believable their subject
matter is, is likely to remain
their Achilles’ heel. So,
with or without a techno-
logical solution, you still
have the power to defend
the election from the influ-
ence of fake events.

A cybersecurity researcher explains situation deepfakes
The basic idea and technology of a
situation deepfake are the same as with
any other deepfake, but with a bolder
ambition: to manipulate a real event or
invent one from thin air. Examples include
depictions of Donald Trump’s perp walk
and Trump hugging Anthony Fauci, neither
of which happened. The hug shot was
promoted by a Twitter account associated
with the presidential campaign of Trump
rival Ron DeSantis. An attack ad targeting
Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign published by
the Republican National Committee was

Moni Sharma New Delhi/Bengaluru TUESDAY may well set the narrative for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, with the Opposition holding its second unity meeting in Bengaluru starting Monday, and the BJP re- viving the moribund NDAto announce its own meeting coinciding with the Opposition’s. For the Opposition, the key points on the agenda are deciding the contours of seat-sharing, and reaching greater coordi- nation and communica- tion.

Truth be told, the opposition appeared ‘scatterred’. Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore announced a walk out during Zero Hour, but all BJP MLAs did not listen to him. Pratap Singh Singhvi and Vasudev Devnani kept on speaking. Even when other MLAs told them that a walk out has happened, still Devnani continued to speak alone. Dev- nani was allowed to speak on his proposal by the Speaker. Now the question is whether this will be justified while entire opposition has not walked out of the house together? Yogesh Sharma, Naresh Sharma & Aishwary Pradhan Jaipur There was heated debate in the House between MLASanyam Lodha and Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathore over the Jodhpur gangrape case. “This is a party of rapists. BJPdid not speak in this matter in the House because the ac- cused are from their or- ganization,” said Lodha. Rajendra Rathore strong- ly objected to Lodha’s allegations. On this, Chairman Chairman JP Chandelia removed the allegations from the pro- ceedings. After this, the BJP MLAs created a ruckus by coming to the Well. MLA Vasudev Devnani ran towards Sanyam Lodha and Madan Dilawar also reached towards Lodha. The Speaker ad- journed the House for 15 minutes. Mean- while, BJP and RLP walked out of the House on Monday raising the issue of law and order through an ad- journment motion. Speaking on the adjourn- ment motion, Rajendra Rathore said that Gehlot Penal Code is applicable in state instead of Indian Penal Code. “Look at the courage of gangsters, threats are given to me and MLA Abhinesh Maharishi.

BHAGAVAD GITA PERSPECT VE www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia 04 Jaipur, Tuesday | July 18, 2023 IN-DEPTH WORLDLOOKSAT ALCARAZ’SWINASSTART OFANEWERAINTENNIS fter Carlos Alcaraz’s fantastic win over reigning champion Novak Djokovic in Wim- bledon final a famous footwear company came up with an ad featuring the 20-year-old cham- pion with the line, “Don’t belong to an era start your own”. That’s exactly what many expect young Car- los to do after surprising the Serbian champion at Wimbledon’s grass court. Djokovic was gracious in acknowledging the youngster’s adaptability as he had played only a few matches on grass before coming to Wimbledon. He proved to be a better player on the day it mattered and halted Djokovic’s march to a record-matching eighth title. Djokovic may have lost in the final but he will still be around to test if the era of Carlos has really begun. There are other challengers like Stefanos Tsitsipas, FrancesTiafoe,Taylor Fritz, Holger Rune, Medvedev, FelixAuger-Alliasime and Matteo Berrettini.The line- up is impressive and they all hold promise of top class tennis in the years to come. Will Carlos stand out? A TO WHAT EXTENT WILL CONG TRUST KEJRIWAL ongress Parliamentary Party chairperson So- nia Gandhi-led Congress will be in a huddle with 24 opposition parties in Bengaluru to discuss issues like the grouping’s name and seat- sharing formula. The contours still look hazy because of a few recent developments. One of them is the Congress agreeing to oppose the ordinance stripping the Delhi government of its powers. The support was Arvind Kejriwal’s pre-condition for joining the Opposition camp. Kejriwal had said that “unless the Congress publicly opposed the ordi- nance, it would be very difficult for the Aam Admi Party (AAP) to be part of any alliance. It is clear that the AAP alone cannot take on the Central govern- ment especially as Kejriwal’s trusted lieutenant and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia continues to languish in jail. It is, however, also doubtful if a combined opposi- tion can do much by opposing the ordinance. The emphatic conditionality makes Kejriwal a difficult partner. He will be a tough negotiator when it comes to seat sharing in Punjab and in states like Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh. The Congress won’t be fooled into believ- ing that the AAP has no ambition of expanding its footprints. His presence at the conclave may be tak- en as a temporary relief. The latest developments in the Nationalist Con- gress Party require a watch on Sharad Pawar. His nephew Ajit Pawar, senior leader Praful Patel, Chhagan Bhujbal and others called on the senior Pa- war “to seek his blessings”. After leaving the party and mouthing criticism the rebels wanted Sharad Pawar to guide them! It sounds strange and incredu- lous. Maharashtra developments will have an impact on Opposition unity.

The American and Ukrainian presidents agree to immediately initi- ate Ukraine into NATO under “the special emer- gency membership proto- col” and prepare for a nu- clear weapons strike against Russia. Suddenly, the world is on the cusp of Armageddon. While journalists could point out that no such pro- tocol exists and social me- dia users might notice odd video-gamelike qualities of the video, others might feel that their worst fears have been confirmed. When Election Day comes, these concerned citizens may let the video sway their votes, unaware that they have just been ma- nipulated by a situation deepfake – an event that never actually happened. Situation deepfakes rep- resent the next stage of technologies that have al- ready shaken audiences’ perceptions of reality. In our research at the DeFake Project, my colleagues at the Rochester Institute of Technology, the University of Mississippi, Michigan State University and I study how deepfakes are made and what measures voters can take to defend themselves from them. IMAGINING EVENTS THAT NEVER HAPPENED Adeepfake is created when someone uses an artificial intelligence tool, especial- ly deep learning, to ma- nipulate or generate a face, a voice or – with the rise of large language models like ChatGPT – conversational language. These can be combined to form “situa- tion deepfakes.” DEEPFAKING AN ELECTION Now put yourself in the position of someone trying to influence the upcoming election. What are the pos- sible situations you might want to create? For start- ers, it would matter wheth- er you wanted to tilt voting toward or away from a spe- cific outcome. DEFENDING REALITY There are a variety of tech- nological and psychologi- cal ways to detect and de- fend against situation deep- fakes. On the technological front, all deepfakes contain some evidence of their true nature. Some of these tells can by seen by the human eye – like overly smooth skin or odd lighting or ar- chitecture – while others may be detectable only by a deepfake-hunting AI. ON THE TECHNOLOGICAL FRONT All deepfakes contain some evidence of their true nature. Some of these tells can by seen by the human eye – like overly smooth skin or odd lighting or ar- chitecture – while others may be detectable only by a deepfake-hunting AI. WearebuildingDeFake’s detector to use AI to catch the telltale signs of deep- fakes,andweareworkingto try to have it ready in time for the 2024 election. But even if a sufficiently power- ful deepfake detector like ours cannot be deployed by Election Day, there are psy- chological tools that you, the voter, can use to identify deepfakes: background knowledge, curiosity and healthy skepticism. If you encounter media content about a person, place or event that seems uncharacteristic, trust your background knowledge. For example, in a recent hoax of a fire at the Penta- gon, the building shown looks more square than pentagonal, which could be a giveaway. SOURCE: THE CONVERSATION BE AWARE OF DEEPFAKES However, try not to rely en- tirely on your background knowledge, which could be mistaken or patchy. Never be afraid to learn more from reliable sources, like fact-checked news reports, peer-reviewed academic articles or interviews with credentialed experts. Additionally, be aware that deepfakes can be used to take advantage of what you are inclined to believe about a person, place or event. One of the best ways to deal with this is to simply be aware of your biases and be a bit guarded about any media content that seems to confirm them. Even if it becomes pos- sible to create perfect situation deepfakes, how believable their subject matter is, is likely to remain their Achilles’ heel. So, with or without a techno- logical solution, you still have the power to defend the election from the influ- ence of fake events.

  • 9. MAJOR RESHUFFLE IN POLICE Govt transfers 25 RPS officers within a week’s time Shivendra Parmar Jaipur RPS officers were transferred in the State on Monday. The Home De- partment issued the trans- fer list of 25 officers. Of them, 9 are under transfer. This is second transfer list of RPS officers within a week. On Wednesday night, 98 officers were transferred. However, nine of them including Raghuveer Saini did not join the new post and they were transferred again in today’s list. Rajendra Chhabra Jaipur The importance of Dev- asthanDepartment,which isconsideredofnegligible significance owing to its less budget, has suddenly increased. It is for the first time that four senior IAS officers have been posted in the department. At the very top is ACS Aparna Arora, thereafter isSecretaryMaheshShar- ma (who has been posted last week), below him is Special Secretary Shakti Singh and finally, 2010 batch IAS Pragya Kewal- ramani is Commissioner. WheninMay2023,Shak- ti Singh was posted in the department, at that time bureaucracy was sur- prised as to why a 2010 batch IAS, who gave im- peccable results in RFC, has been ‘dumped’ in such a small and insignifi- cant department? Then Mahesh Sharma was re- cently ‘parked’ in Dev- asthan from LSG, which also came as a surprise since when ACS Aparna Arora is already in the de- partment, then why does a small department need a Secretary? Most of the work of the department is done at the head office in Udaipur, where a senior IAS is posted as full-time Com- missioner. Since October 2022, Pragya has been handling this responsibil- ity thus, there is no practical need of posting three IAS in the depart- mentat JaipurSecretariat. 25 www.firstindia.co.in firstindia.co.in/epapers/jaipur thefirstindia thefirstindia thefirstindia Postal Reg No. JPC/004/2022-24 08 Jaipur, Tuesday | July 18, 2023 Never forget your power to make some- one’s day brighter and happier with a kind word or a smile, alas … the opposite is also true!

In such a situation, the RSS, which runs the govern- ment behind the scenes while remaining power- ful under the BJP rule, will also weaken. When there is no government, how will the RSS be able to spread religious fren- zy?” he said while ad- dressing a press confer- ence at his Sikar resi- dence. Dotasra also said that the BJP has connections with gangrape incident in Jodhpur. He said, “In the first incident of Udaipur, the relation of GC Kataria, the then LoP of the BJP, who had cre- ated Hindu-Muslim di- vide, with the accused came to the fore. Now the SP has talked about ABVP workers’ involve- ment in Jodhpur incident. BJP should respond to this as well. BJP special- ises only in making noise and slogans in Vidhan Sabha and doing gim- micks,” he said. He also accused BJPof shielding criminals. Do- tasra also claimed action against the accused in paper leak case by con- ducting an impartial in- quiry by the government. He said that the SOG has caught every accused. “If the intention of the gov- ernment was not right, then the DG would not have exposed the money received in the Secretari- at in front of the entire media,” he said. On arrest of Gopal Ke- sawat, ex- chairman of State Nomadic Caste Welfare Board by ACB, Dotasra said that he had contested as an inde- pendent after being ex- pelled from party. He said that ACB caught Gopal and his aides. “Ra- jendra Rathore, CP Joshi or any BJP leader hasn’t been caught,” he said. ‘BJP’ stands for Bhrashtachari, Jaativaadi, Pakshpati: Dotasra Nadda ji, the full form of UPA, which brought the law of education, information and food security in the country, is in the heart of the countrymen, but today, I am telling you the correct full form of BJP wherein, ‘B’ stands for Bhrashtachari, ‘J’ stands for Jaativaadi and ‘P’ stands for Pakshpati. The BJP coined the slogan, ‘Nahi Sahega Rajasthan,’ but the people of Rajasthan think, ‘Nahi Rukega Rajasthan.’ The Congress party in Raj aspires to be at No.1 position by 2030 and it won’t stop. GS DOTASRA, PCC CHIEF Such incidents have no place in the society and the culprits should be severely punished. The police have done the work of defaming a student organisation under the pressure of the Raj government. Without any concrete evidence, the police have named the organisation. We will never tolerate such an act. GS SHEKHAWAT, UNION MINISTER GS Dotasra meets the families of various deceased and shares their grief during his visit to Laxmangarh in Sikar on Monday.

The court told the govern- ment that the result of this is before everyone to see as the prisoner was murdered on the bus. The court observed that dur- ing this, not only the safety of the common people was threatened, but along with loss of time of jail guards, the roadways property was also damaged.

  • 11. n today's digital age, where com- munication is primarily con- ducted through smartphones and computers, the ancient visual communication system known as – Semaphore may seem obsolete. However, semaphore, with its roots dating back to the late 18th century, con- tinues to hold significance and has even found new applications in the modern era. Semaphore, derived from the Greek words sema meaning sign and pherein meaning to bear or to carry, refers to a method of visual communication that utilizes visual signals to convey messages. Originally developed by French engineer Claude Chappe, semaphore in- volved a network of towers with mechanical arms or flags posi- tioned differently to represent let- ters, numbers, and symbols. These visual signals could be observed and interpreted from a distance, allowing for long-distance com- munication without needing elec- tronic devices. In recent times, semaphore has experienced a resurgence as a cap- tivating artefact of the modern era. The traditional flags and mechan- ical arms have been replaced by handheld LED devices, which can be used to recreate the visual sig- nals of the semaphore system. This adaptation allows for pre- serving the semaphore's historical significance while incorporating modern technology. The semaphore system operat- ed through a series of predeter- mined signals or codes conveyed through different hand positions over configurations of flags. Sig- nal senders, equipped with two flags, manipulated their positions to represent letters, numbers, and symbols. The recipient of the mes- sage would carefully observe the flag positions and decipher the encoded message accordingly. While wireless communication technologies have largely re- placed semaphore, it continues to be valued in specific contexts. In the Indian Navy and the Indian maritime industry, semaphore is important alongside railways, roads, and aviation. Even in the face of advanced wireless sys- tems, semaphore remains a symbol of human ingenuity and creativity in trans- mitting informa- tion across vast distances. One notable semaphore system is the International Maritime Sig- nal Flag Code, also known as the International Code of Signals. This code consists of a set of flags representing specific letters and numbers, allowing for the spelling out of various messages by manipulating the positions of the flags. Historically, semaphores played a crucial role in maritime communication and navigation. It enabled sailors and ships to transmit vital information across vast oceanic distances. From dis- tress signals to navigation in- structions, semaphores facilitated the exchange of critical messages through concise and structured physical transmissions. Similar- ly, military units utilized sema- phores to relay orders and infor- mation, ensuring seamless coor- dination between d i ff e r e n t units. While modern technology has revolutionized communica- tion in the maritime domain, semaphore retains its impor- tance as a backup and al- ternative method, par- ticularly in situations where electronic systems may be compromised or unsuitable. Expressing his thoughts on this customary method of visual communication, Cmde. (Dr.) Srikant B Kesnur (Retd) Indian Navy and a Naval Historian, ex- pressed, Semaphores, a time- less visual language at sea, hold profound importance in the pre- sent era, as well. From flags to LED handhelds, they offer clear and visible communication. The allure of semaphores lies in their demand for human mindfulness and agility to transmit messages accurately through physical move- ments. Over- coming shortcodes and time con- straints, they ensure secure com- munication, impervious to inter- ception. When electronic sys- tems falter, semaphore emerges as a reliable backup, bridging communication gaps in jammed or disrupted radio frequencies. Its quick and comprehensible visual signalling aids swift and unambiguous exchanges in close quarters and congested marine settings. With universal recogni- tion among naval forces, sema- phore fosters interoperability and conquers language barriers. Though not the primary choice in daily operations, its versatility and historical significance make it a supplementing option. The Indian Navy even conducts in- tra-competition to showcase the mastery of this visual art of com- munication to date. Beyond its maritime and mili- tary applications, semaphore has also found utility in other do- mains. In railway operations, sem- aphores aided in coordinating train movements and communica- tion between train operators and signalmen. Sporting events like cycling races have also adopted semaphores to indicate race status and instruct participants. Semaphore is a captivating relic from an era when ingenuity was paramount in transmitting information across vast distances. Whether through its historical significance or its contemporary adaptations, semaphore continues to be a testament to the power of visual communication in convey- ing messages effectively and creatively.
