    2001: A Space Odyssey

    3 star(s)

    Another similarity was that both Clarke and Kubrick implied that man were merely infants. The narrator in "The Sentinel" referred to the earth as "our cradle," (241) while in 2001, the main character eats his food through a straw much like an infant does baby food. In outer space, man has left his crib and now, because of gravity, has to re-learn how to walk. This is similar to when a toddler took its first steps. I believe that both Kubrick and Clarke wanted to state that humans were new to space and have much to learn.

  2. Video game violence. Violent video games seem to become the target of the blame game, from school shootings (Columbine, Virginia Tech), to an increase in bullying and violence towards women. Researchers argue that violent games would reduce players to

    In other words, interaction with others enables children to constantly redefine roles and expectations. Thus, their concept of self is based in large measure on their interpretations of the interactions they have with others. The self that is developed through the on-going interactions is not unique to a given situation, but, instead affects the outcomes of subsequent situations. Thus, the gender identity that is established by the child has consequences for the rest of the statuses and identities of that individual.

    In Scarface and in Little Caesar, Tony Camonte (Paul Muni) and Rico "Little Caesar" Bandello (Edward G Robinson) both rise to the top with ease of access into the physical spaces of legitimate society and of the rich with no acknowledgment to the boundaries of the fixed social structures. Warshow states, "the gangster's activity is actually a form of rational enterprise, involving fairly definite goals and various techniques for achieving them" (14). Moreover, a sensible drive for success is made clear through the eyes of Rico and Tony.

    Music Distribution in the Digital Age

    This is no longer the only system of distribution due to the advent of the digital age. There is conflict between such traditional methods of distribution and those of digital means, as the standard means of distribution has been impinged on by technological innovation. With the rise of the internet and peer-to-peer (P2P) technology, the foundation for vast media file-sharing online was established, leading to the creation of online business models. P2P networks connect online users with one another and allow them to share files while also being connected directly to artists.

    It is sad to see so many good newspapers going out of business, and many people are now wondering what the future of the news will be. As younger generations grow up learning to read their news online and as there has been a huge decline in readership among newspapers it is very likely that many newspapers will cut their number of printed papers or in some extreme cases discontinue them altogether. The newspaper industry broadly relies on two sources of revenues: subscription and advertising.

    While the cyborgs Harway refers to are images and dolls of robots that basically have the shape of a human being's body, but instead the skin looks like it is covered or perhaps replaced with metal. Cyborg representations of our bodies, specifically women's bodies, cause a false perception and alter attitudes toward women and sexuality.

  13. How has the spread of communications technology affected cultures around the world? Assess the extent to which the Internet is a medium for Western culture alone.

    Nowadays, globalization is a common term, which is used to describe cultures in the world. The meaning of globalization is to bring people of different nations closer through a special medium like the Internet. (Lechner, 2000-2001) Undeniably, the Internet is the most outstanding innovation to provide a platform for self-exploration and social encounter. We can communicate with a person who is in another part of the world in seconds, at the same time, we can get information out of your home country. People can explore other cultures from different ethnicity, share their thoughts together and establish a global friendship easily.

    This can be particularly effective if both tutors and peers partake. Blogs can also be efficient to a student of media and communications as they allow one to develop skills for expressing ideas, which is essential regarding coursework and also jobs relating to all aspects of the media.

    Computers were used in these environments as a tool - a typewriter, calculator or storage device. The relative expense of computers prevented many people from using them in their homes, when a typewriter would perform the same task at a fraction of the cost. The advent of email triggered a gradual change in the perception of computers merely as a 'glorified typewriter'. Computers now began to have some of the qualities of a communication medium as email was more widely embraced. With the subsequent development and expansion of the Internet, computers came to be seen as 'media'.

    Therefore, creation is the human act of creating, to make the existence of things by someone which is completely new and no one has ever seen and heard about it before. Indeed, creation is also a complex term to define since it can be related to any aspect in the world such as religion, philosophy, science, arts, media, architecture and more. It is very interesting to examine the act of creation because it is making something out of nothing (Murphy 2007).

    For example if we start using technology like intelligent cameras in football, it will reduce the number of mistakes that the referee makes and will mean that penalties, free-kicks and corners are only given out to players that deserve it and will also mean that payers will not try to dive to get any of these. It will make sure the players that foul will get what they deserve- a red or yellow card. However some sports fans will yet again debate that football should depend entirely on the hands of the referee and not involve complex technology which is also quite expensive.

  • To what extent and for whom does media technology serve as a source of social power?

    "In conclusion, the degree of social power wielded by media technology is dependent on many factors, the audience itself being chief amongst these. The influence it has over its' audience depends on both their social background and experience; how the audience uses the media; and of course the content of the media itself. The same program or report will have different effects on some than on others. The different types of media will also have varying degrees of effectiveness. Some individuals or groups have a greater degree of control over media technology than others. This will inevitably influence the effectiveness of media technology as a tool of social power: A man who owns an on-line journal will have much less social influence than a man who owns a television network. It is impossible to measure the effects of media technology, but it would be fair to say that the media will at sometimes affect our actions and opinions. It would also be fair to say that some are more vulnerable to the influence of media than others. (Frank Webster) Theories of the information society. 1995.

  • Discuss the functions and ethics of identification and tracking computing technology embedded in everyday products.

    "So in my concussion to the argument I would agree with the arguments against the tagging process, I think that the public are being miss lead into the process. The public need to know about the tagging for it to be justified, maybe if the company were to change the way they manufactured their chips, it would make them better if they had a limited life. Also if the company were to advertise their chips, letting the public now about them, as they might not be as cautious about using there products, But with respect to the shopping technology which lets you walk out of the shop with out paying and you get sent a bill to your home address, I am completely agree with this type of technology because I think it would revolutionise the way in which we shop to this date. I agree with the process of the human electronic tagging and the ethics behind that type of technology, depending on which crime has been committed, and if it was a smaller crime then these criminals would be allowed to be moved out of the jails and put on this electronic tagging system, which would free up jail space for the bigger criminals."
