Political actions between specific countries and the hostile international relations, which later can be a part of the history, are important factors that can affect media content. As example might be used an impact of terrorism on mass media. Terrorism is an action of using violence, danger to fright or to force usually for political interest ( Seib and Janbek, 2011). The terrorist attack that killed nearly 3000 people at the World Trade Center and Pentagon on 11th September 2001 and declaration of the war in Afganistan (BBC, n.d.) influenced media in a whole world. When George W. Bush blamed Al Qaida terrorist network created by Osama bin Laden about 9/11 attack ( Seib and Janbek, 2011), the media oozed hatred calling for anti Arab and Muslim people. The word "Jidahist" was highlighted in newspapers. As P. Bergen and J. Rowland wrote, the meaning of the word "Jidahist" is terrorist associated with or motivated by Al Qaeda (Bergen & Rowland, 2012).

  • 13. A Brief Note On The And Measuring Crime Operationalising and Measuring Crime The phenomenon of crime can be seen globally throughout different societies and cultures in many different forms such as theft and murder, dictated by the state laws governing the land at the time, and is becoming more and more of an issue in modern society. With shows such as Crimewatch and the constant negative portrayal by the media, crime is becoming what is known as a 'moral panic ', and raising awareness about different type of crimes as well as frenzy (Cohen, 2002). Some of the predominate sources of UK government data on the levels and attitudes to crime, are self–report studies where offenders tell of their crime, police crime statistics and most prominent, The British Crime Survey for England and Wales (Home Office,2012). The British Crime Survey for England and Wales is a victimisation survey first established in 1982, which collects and measures large quantities of crime statistics 'by asking people about crimes they have experience in the previous year ' (Home Office,2012:3). Within this essay I will define the key concepts and terms and explore why the study of crime and collection of statistics is pediment to society and social research. I will then examine why to an extent crime is difficult to measure and operationalise through looking at my chosen three attributes of violent crime, sexual offences and commercial victimisation, by looking at statistics and past studies on crime that faced similar difficulties. ...

Perhaps the images are a closer reflection of ourselves than are words on a page. One further example of the past impact of technological change on news reporting and presentation, likewise, is still very much present (or perhaps, dominant) today: live television broadcast from the scene of news events. Developed from the 1960's onwards, due to a number of converging technologies, for example, smaller cameras, satellite communications, portable power, it is now a given that any significant news event will have instantaneous live television coverage. Indeed, entire networks (CNN, Sky News, BBC World) now exist based upon this foundation of live news. But is this unending live news good news? Former political correspondent of The New York Times, and editor for New York magazine and Esquire, Richard Reeves, believes "...today's high–tech fusion of cable television, electronic information services and pop culture, has removed the filtering process of reporting, editing and writing that separates journalism from the raw act of communication." (as cited in Martin, 1997).

  • 19. Chemical Reactions On Metabolic Pathways A Metabolic pathway is a series of chemical reactions in which the product of one reaction becomes the substrate for the next reaction. (Nature.com, 2010). Chemical reactions in metabolic pathways rarely take place spontaneously. Each reaction step is catalysed, by an enzyme. Enzymes are important for catalysing all types of biological reactions: those that require energy as well as those that release energy. (Metabolic Pathways, 2016) (Metabolic Pathways, 2016) Enzymes are proteins that control the rates of chemical reactions, almost all processes in a biological cell need enzymes in order to occur at a specific rate. (Barnes, Vokins and Barnes, 1998) Enzymes are selective for their substrates and only speed up certain reactions therefore the set of enzymes in a cell determines which metabolic pathways occur in that cell. Enzymes lower the amount of activation energy needed, therefore speed up the rate of the reaction but are not used up. (slideshare, 2008) The induced fit hypothesis explains the specificity of enzymes and how they control the function of cells. The theory suggests that the enzyme is flexible and it is the substate that plays the role of determining its shape. Only the appropriate substrate is able to join to the active site. (slideshare, 2011) The induced fit hypothesis suggests that the active site continues to change until the substrate is completely bound to it, at which point the final shape and charge is determined and therefore the cells ...

The final box gives access to the interactive part of the website. From this overview of the home page of the site it is possible to see that the BBC is attempting to appeal to a wide audience but it is also keeping its emphasis on its home market; the majority of the topics covered are related to British history and those that are more global still have a British reference within them. To critically evaluate the site, it is essential to bear in mind that the BBC will try, as far as possible, to take a unbiased view; if a programme is a general history of a period, such as Andrew Marr's "The Making of Modern Britain", then the BBC always attributes ownership of the opinion and interpretation to the presenter or writer. The statement "The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites" would suggest that they are responsible for their internal sites but who decides on the site content is not so clear. The home page of BBC History leads to a vast network of topics and other sites. To critically evaluate the whole site would, perhaps, diminish some of what it is trying to achieve, accessibility of history to all.

This move to censor pornography has just intentions, but this author believes that censorship in this manner should be the responsibility of parents.

Some people may wish to access adult content, whilst denying their children access to it. Without the knowledge of self web regulation, they would not be able to access adult content, without the risk of exposing their children to it.

  • 45. The First English Poor Law Legislation 16th century – The first English Poor Law legislation. According to Spicker (2014) the English Poor Laws were a system of poor relief which existed until the emergence of the modern welfare state after the Second World War. These laws purpose was provision for 'setting the poor on work '. The parish was the basic unit of administration. People were tied to particular locations. If they tried to get relief outside the parish of their birth they could be 'removed' which means not given relief or transported to another parish.

The Folkeskole works (The Ministry of Education, 2014) 'In cooperation with the parents to provide student with the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for further education and training.' The fact the parents have input to the education at this level is motivational for the parents because they feel like they have a say in what their child learns, and also helpful for the school because they know, what the parents want to see, and how they are able to improve on this. Also because the student stays with the teacher throughout their time in the Folkeskole, 'Parents and teachers become well–acquainted during the course of the students education.' Which means the teacher would be able to give more accurate reports on the child and give constructive advice on what's the best way for them to improve. In the UK, there is the same process with the parent to teacher meetings, they would meet at least once a year for progress reviews on their child, however, (The Alberta Teachers Association, 2014) 'In England, parents are not represented at the local or national levels.'

Executive Summary Joseph Bazalgette built London's current sewage system in the 1960's and, at the time of construction, they stopped the spread of Cholera which was rapidly spreading amongst Londoners at the time. The system also brought an end to the Great Stink of London. (BBC History, 2016) Introduction to the Thames Tideway Tunnel The construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel is an eight–year project starting in 2016 with the projected completion date in 2023. The tunnel is being constructed in order to address the issue of London's overflowing sewer system. The current 20,000 miles of networked sewage pipes were built in the 1860's by Joseph Bazalgette and they are failing to meet 21st century demands with London's growing population and increasing levels of rainwater ending up in the sewers. The sewers were designed so that rare overflows would be flushed into the river, however, at the time of construction this only happened on average once a year and now it happens on a weekly basis resulting in 39 million tonnes of raw sewage ending up in the River Thames every year. (BBC News, 2014) (Super Sewer: An Introduction to the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project in London, 2016) According to Phil Stride from Thames Water, "It is absolutely not consistent for a world– leading city to be using its river as an open sewer", and it is because of this that the Thames Tideway Tunnel became the proposed solution to London's sewage problems. ...

This shows that there is little argument against the disenfranchisement of prisoners as they are prepared and encouraged to be a part of society. People are incarcerated for different crimes some a lot more severe than others. For example, a single parent was sentenced to 3 months for the theft of a pair of jeans worth £10 (BBC News, 2011). However, while these are viable points and questions, the government allowing certain individuals in prisons to vote could be a complicated decision. Felons' circumstances are not simply black and white; there can be a grey area with individual cases. Appropriate retribution is said to only occur when an appropriate punishment is given for the crime (Hegel, 1965). This makes it difficult to judge who has committed a serious enough offence to enable them to be stripped of their right to vote. Streeter said, the UK decided hundreds of years ago that prisoners should not have the right to vote' (Streeter, 2011). This is a settled view in this country which has been accepted since 1870 (Hollobone, 2011). 'Do we want convicted murderers, rapists and paedophiles to be given the vote?' (BBC News, 2010).

In 1942, the Allies of World War II ousted Italy from Libya, a colony it had held since 1911, and France and Britain began to administer separate parts of the country. After becoming the first country to gain its independence through the United Nations in 1951, Libya entered a short period of constitutional monarchy under King Idris al–Sanusi. In 1959, the discovery of oil led the previously poor Libya to become extremely wealthy as oil began to be transported via pipeline and exported to foreign markets. U.S.–Libyan relations between 1951 and 1969 were relatively good both politically and economically. The U.S. supported the U.N. resolution giving Libya independence and both countries ultimately established embassy–level missions in one another's capital.1 U.S. access to Libya's oil market was also strong as two American companies were granted 14 million acres of oil fields.2 But unequal distributions of wealth within the country as well as pan–Arab ideas rejecting Western influence soon fueled popular resentment and led to revolution.

This is usually owned by the songwriter or music publisher.4 The second law is the copyright in sound recording, which deals with the recording of the performer singing or playing a given song. This is usually owned by the record company.5 The law that is violated with electronic file sharing is the second one. Titles 17 and 18 of the U.S. Code protect copyright owners from the unauthorized reproduction, adaptation or distribution of sound recordings, as well as certain digital performances to the public.6 So, from the legal clauses, it can be interpreted that users of popular online sites such as Napster are engaging in unauthorized distribution of sound recordings. The online infringement of copyrighted music can be punished with several years in prison. 7 The most popular system ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 80. Fracking Process Analysis Fracking is a process whereby fluid, which consists of huge amounts of water and 3– 12 chemicals, is injected underground at high pressure to crack open shale rock, which releases natural gas or oil trapped in the shale (A. Prud'homme, 2014). Fracking is being considered across South Africa, particularly in the Karoo Basin (Times Live, 2017). Although fracking is a good source of energy it also controversial because it is argued that the process may cause small earth tremors which could, in the long run, result to earthquakes (BBC News, 2015). South Africa is a water scarce country and water in the Karoo is under continuous stress due to pollution and depletion (Times live, 2017). This than implies that in South Africa fracking could cause huge loss of ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... However, it is good to consider the fact that fracking would significantly reduce South Africa's carbon footprint and provide cost–competitive energy security (News24, 2017). This would also be a good opportunity to create jobs in South Africa. The government's studies pointed a possibility of 3000 jobs that could come out of the project (News24, 2017). It is also argued that even though the process is expensive to create once done one well can be fracked 10 or more times (F.R. Spellman, 2012). Personally I think that other ways of creating energy, that don't involve the disruption of natural resources, should be used in order for us to ensure that no carbon footprint is left on the atmosphere. Fracking due to the water crises in South Africa should not be used. References BBC News (2015) What is fracking and why is it controversial? [Online].

  • 82. Natural Disasters Examples of natural disasters which occurred in 2017 are hurricanes, forest fires, mudslides, floods, earthquakes, etcetera. A few of these disasters got excessive coverage via all sorts of global media for long periods whilst some got very little. In late August of this year, many countries around the world experienced floods and heavy rainfall–somehow the flooding in Houston was covered extensively in the global news section at BBC Worlds News and CNN World News whilst minimal approach was taken on the coverage of the hundreds who died in South Asia and Sierra Leone because of floods and mudslides respectively. Seeing as more lives were lost to the mudslide in Sierra Leone, West Africa than to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, USA, it is almost difficult to argue against the media bias in BBC World News and CNN World News. The ultimate purpose of the news media is to be a promoter of the voice of the voiceless (the common people) on both a local and global scale–ultimately, a public servant. Today, the media molds, shapes and creates an opinion in our minds before we get an opportunity to think for ourselves. Whether we watch the news on the television or listen to the radio or follow CNN or BBC World News on some social media platform like Facebook or Twitter–we receive controlled content altered to favor a certain group of people, companies, industries–or in this case, countries. Irrespective of what the media implies in its actions, no life lost is less or more important ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
