As a technology it is called multimedia As a revolution it is the sum
As a technology, it is called multimedia. As a revolution, it is the sum of many revolutions wrapped into one: A revolution in communication that combines the audio visual power of television, the publishing power of the printing press, and the interactive power of the computer. Multimedia is the convergence of these different professions, once thought independent of one another, coming together to form a new technological approach to the way information and ideas are shared.

Trends in drug use among youth are indirectly attributable to trends i
Trends in drug use among youth are indirectly attributable to trends in society. Although drugs have always been around in one form or another, their early influences on society trace back to just before the 1930’s. Marijuana was a popular drug among Mexican laborers, jazz musicians, and so-called beatniks. Then after major social changes that took place in 1930, The government cracked down on marijuana use. In 1937, the Marijuana Tax Act…made the use and sale of marijuana without a tax stamp

Did you ever wonder why you choose the products that you buy? I can almost guarantee that subliminal advertising had something to do with your decision making. Subliminal advertising is a form of advertising that persuades you into buying a product without you even realizing it (Packard 18). It is a very powerful, effective, and commonly used form of advertising. How do advertisers know what to use in order to trigger your subconscious? The techniques used for probing or triggering the subconsci

A Scene from Martin Scorcese's Mean Streats Considered to be one of the most consistently inventive American directors in the last thirty years, Martin Scorsese has brought to life some of the most violently thought provoking stories onto the screen. Many of his films deal with life in the Mafia. Some have dealt with psychotics and killers. Others have been complete departures that were period pieces, comedies, and even a feminist drama. He has proven that he can do big Hollywood-style movies a

The idea of fitting a keyboard to an instrument with strings which sta
The idea of fitting a keyboard to an instrument with strings, which started to vibrate when struck by hammers, was conceived probably in the fourteenth and certainly in the fifteenth century. For the next two hundred and fifty years, however, the harpsichord with plucked, rather than struck, strings, held undoubted sway. The clavichord also, had its adherents and within its severe limitations was responsive to gradations of finger touch, its strings struck by miniature tangents. In the late sev

Ernest Hemingway once gave some advice to his fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. If something in life hurts you, he said, you should use it in your writing. In A Farewell to Arms Hemingway followed his own advice. The painful experiences of his own life that, consciously and unconsciously, he placed in this novel help make it a major artistic achievement. The first of these experiences was a physical hurt that occurred on July 8, 1918. On this date, two weeks shy of his nineteenth birthday, H

To answer the question of whether or not the 1950s’ were really the “Happy Days,” is like saying that there was a chicken in every pot when Hoover was president. There are many good reasons why the 1950s’ could be called the “Happy Days,” as well as many reasons why this was just an illusion to many. With the 1950s’ a whole change of lifestyles erupted among people. The war had ended, and people had money that they did not have before. Because they were not able to buy anything during World War

This is largely because movies made during the first half of the twentieth century were recorded on nitrate negatives. Nitrate is subject to gradual decay when neglected and not properly stored. Many studio heads saw no reason to keep the “little” films around and simply had the negatives destroyed in order to gain more storage space. As a

Media Media plays a big role in society today. It effects everyone but seems to negatively effect younger children who can’t distinguish between right and wrong. The main types of media that effect people today are radio, newspaper, television, movies, and music. Radio and newspaper are probably the two that don’t effect children as much. Although if the song on the radio has adult lyrics the children listening might pick up on it but overall public radio plays a pretty clean selection. Newspap

Because over 90 million homes in the United states contain at least one television set, the graphic violence being shown in most of the programs is becoming a widespread problem (Rooldman 55). The problem of television violence has greatly increased over the years since the study of it got started in 1946, and it has had many las

Subliminal Messages in Advertising Advertising has been part of the American economy for some time. Over that time advertising has grown significantly from a single page ad with one black and white photo to today’s million dollar multi-media campaigns, including TV and magazine adds designed specifically to make you want to buy what everyone is selling. At the heart of every advertising campaign is a sales pitch which is obvious. Beginning in the 50’s advertisers were looking at all available t

Charles Dickens gave a lot of attention to crime because crime was an inescapable social problem at the time. Today crime is just as much of a problem. When a child is born they are born innocent and their minds are a blank slate - they are born with no intellect, morals, values, etc., only basic instincts like wanting to eat, sleep, cry, etc. What the child learns in the first years of its life lays the foundations for the child's morals, values, respect (or lack of respect) and is passed on b

The 1920s was a very transitional period for our country. After many many years of ignorant obedience, a considerable portion of our culture began to question the strict Victorian standards under which they were raised. Many young people rejected the mores of established society and lead wild lives. They dressed in a way that was considered inappropriate at that time and they listened to jazz: the music of the devil. I think that it may actually have been during this decade that our nation had

Since we live in a violent society, we're constantly hearing arguments that seeing TV violence, particularly as kids, desensitises us so we accept real violence more off handedly maybe it even triggers real violence. But TV also shows lots of hugging. The standard plot for most family sitcoms is; (1) Problem causes family members to get mad at one another; (2) Family members abuse each other in cute ways, (3) All is forgiven by end of show and everybody hugs.

Child and adolescent violence is a growing problem in today's society. Why do children become violent? Doctors and scientists have found that there are many causes for aggressive behavior in children and have developed ways of preventing children from becoming violent. These causes are biochemical, psychological, and sociological. It is important to learn the causes, the effects, and the treatments of violent behavior because it is such a growing problem in the modern world. According to Kotula

We decide daily about things like morality (should we cheat or take the honest route at school), sexuality (should we sleep with the person we are dating), and economics (what job should we look for). These decisions determine the course of our lives, and ultimately the place where we spend eternity, for the greatest decision is to decide to follow Christ or Satan.
