He was released later that year, free to roam the Internet again. The case of Robert Colehill was one of the first chatroom-related incidents recorded, and it, along with that of Patrick Green, shocked the nation. Hundreds of parents were suddenly made aware of the ease with which potential child abusers had been interacting with their children. Despite the rapid escalation of this problem, the number of cases which have come to light and the publication of many shocking statistics, there is little to suggest that chatrooms and the internet is any safer now than it was in 2000.

Which sources of knowledge- books, web sites, the media, personal experience, authorities or some other- do you consider most trustworthy, and why?
. When talking about books one can already distinguish between the fiction and non fiction books. Fiction is usually defined as fantasy and non real yet sometimes the author of the book makes it seem like non-fiction. This makes it sometimes hard for the reader to say if it is fiction or not. Due to the fact that fiction is fantasy it can be said that it is not considered to be true. Therefore fiction is not trustworthy as a source of knowledge. The other type of book is non-fiction. In the Oxford School Dictionary it is defined as "writings that are not fiction; books about real people and things and true events."

Having these objectives should make the Website easy to access the information wanted by the customer whenever they want. We are making websites, which are a good source of advertising nowadays with everyone using the Internet. It is also a better resource for customers as they can keep coming back to the site at their convenience.

I have chosen to do my Internet project on atomic structure, I have chosen this because I do Chemistry for GCSE and its one of my favourite subjects
Google came up with the most results in both searches and Lycos came up with the least with only 6 results for atomic structure. REFINING MY SEARCH I refined my search by typing in "bonding between atoms" I found this affective in each search engine as it narrowed down my results to give me a chance to look at each website as there wasn't that many. I also found this affective as it gave me information on the topic I exactly wanted, rather than information that is irrelevant to the topic I am covering.

My aim was to produce a poster and video box advertising a film. Its purpose is to attract, target and engage the correct audience for the genre of my film through the way in which the media products are marketed.
An example of how crime is represented in 'Carloito's Way' is in one particular scene early on in the film where there is a shooting taking place and there is red d�cor and appropriate music. The audience can associate the red colour with violence and the music signifies some event of importance. From what knowledge I had gathered I decided to use a red/maroon colour for the background of my media products as it is a strong colour and commonly associated with crime (inc.

But this will not be the case all the time, as I do not want the video to be overly literal. The video will always return to the image of the dead man as this is the most important image and should remain in the audience's mind. Some of the images will be symbolic of specific events for example the shot which shows flowers being ruthlessly trampled on represents the end of the relationship between the man and the woman. The only other character in the video is the woman with who the relationship has ended with.

Information over the internet is also free, or very inexpensive, as compared to more traditional methods of the distribution of information. And according to Amnesty International, the use of the Internet has enabled their organization to "spread their message around the world to places and people it might have never reached using traditional media." In light of this principle, several organizations now send information to thousands of supporters through the internet. Amnesty International alone, among numerous other organizations, has "More than 6000 people [who] now receive news releases Amnesty International through the promotion of [their] e-mail News Service in the website."

Working with the mayor is something completely different than reading it in a textbook. I believe you can read textbooks, and understand the information but to fully be informed you need to experience it for yourself. The competitiveness is something that can't be explained it can only be felt. These people are going to the extent of walking home to home for the people to grasp a better understanding of what they are representing. Many topics must be carefully examined before voting day. After researching the major issues of the campaign the most important topic seems to be how to maintain our small town character with expanding the availability of housing.

It could be said that now is 'worse' than ever. All the user has to do is connect to a server, as a client, and play with another person half the world away. Internally, the server localizes the client's IP, may upload some necessary files to the client, and gives it permission to access other computer games that would be running. An important factor settling the quality of the online playing experience is the size of the bandwidth, since it determines the rate at which data can be sent.

Which sources of knowledge—books, web sites, the media, personal experience, authorities or some other— do you consider most trustworthy, and why?
Yet with the books one always has to be careful with who writes it. The author may have a biased point of view that will influence the information in them. The land of origin also is some thing that one needs to be aware about. If the book was written in a country at the time where a dictator was controlling what was being published, then the "real" truth wont come out, therefore it is important that one looks at more than one book to get a broad view of what happened. Books mostly claim what happened in the past, historical events.

Quizzes and trivia is one of my personal favourites on the alloy site. There is at least one new quiz each week and if you are part of their mailing list you get it sent to you as well as other promotional offers available from the site and its sponsors. The Mykindaplace site focus's more on real life stories rather than showbiz gossip. Although, it is still packed full of showbiz and celebrity stories similar to alloy. I think that it is a good idea to have real life stories as well as showbiz ones because I feel that the stories such as teen pregnancies are very informative and raise awareness.

The research shows that exposure and experience with the Web is changing consumers' fundamental attitude towards traditional media. In comparison with other media sources, we found that user control is a critical preference attribute of the Internet as a medium, providing individual control over content source, time of access, content depth and other parameters. The survey reveals that there is a fundamental shift in media consumption occurring, and traditional publishers will need to evolve as Web adoption and use increases.

Even so, very rarely does a reader's letter elicit the same attention as a featured article. In the end, though, control lies with the producer of the publication, as does the last word. It is, after all, their product. Traditionally, because individuals knowledgeable, or even interested in a topic were difficult to locate, to find differing opinions from other sources, one had to search it out. One could either invest time at the library, money at the bookstore, or hope to come across a special on public television.

The layout (like shop flooring) is designed to lead browsers round in a certain way but at the same time being clearly marked for direct access (if you know what you want you can get to it easily often through searches on the site). The choice of language used is of vital importances as well. Again going back to Amazon as an example, the viewer has to trust the site and harsh words would lose the sale. In this first section of the essay I'm going to look at language and content.

Also 'extraordinary' is just the start of the over used dramatic language that is clear throughout the blurb. 'Rigorously suppressed', 'remarkable evidence', 'sensational', and 'remarkable' is just an example of the exaggerated language in this blurb. There is also a picture of an 'Alien' on the front, back and middle of the video cover. The repetition of this picture ensures that whichever way this video is stocked in the shop it is always eye-catching.
