The History, Strategies and Future of Legacy Media

Today when we think of way to entertainment ourselves we think of either the Radio or Television. When we think of the Radio we think of our favorite songs or those repetitive, irritating, boring yet interesting and amusing talk shows in between mixes. What we do not consider is; where did this entertainment come from? How it actually produces sound? How does it exist or even who brought it into existence? We utilize television for most of our entertainment as well and the same applies. We never question how Television came along, how the picture is projected? How we’re able to see the images in color and so forth. All we care for is celebrity reality shows, amazing food networks and live Sports. The history of these legacy media consists of time, trial and error. Legacy Media as a whole has made a larger impact on the world than actual world issues. Legacy Media today is the money, power and even the respect in all parts of the Earth.
It first began in the late 1800s, when Heinrich Hertz detects and produces radio waves. Radio being the first device to allow mass communication: with hopes of being able to communicate wirelessly. Wireless telegraphy, electric telegraphy that does not have wires connecting the endpoints; systems which communicate with radio waves. In 1894, Nobel Prize-winning physicist and inventor Guglielmo Marconi builds his first radio equipment that would ring a bell 30 feet away. Breaking all barriers of Radio, Marconi discovered the much needed work necessary for future radio technology. With consistent effort towards experimenting with wireless telegraphy, Marconi developed the first effective system of radio communication. In 1899, he founded the Marconi Telegraph Company and in 1901 he successfully sent wireless signals across the Atlantic Ocean Marconi then establishes the first radio…...

Media Analysis

...Everywhere I go, media surrounds me; at home, school and most definitely at my workplace. I spent a day this past weekend in a state of isolation. It was difficult to ignore all facets of media, and find other activities to substitute them. I felt alone, bored, out of the loop, and tired. My dependence on media is strong, and I felt as if there were a piece of myself missing. To be more specific, the use of media technology is one aspect that ties my family together. We rely on constant communication for safety purposes. My parents, siblings, and I are on opposite schedules, so it is very important to make sure we keep in contact and update one another. What I missed the most was having my iPhone in hand. I really missed listening to a voicemail from my mom telling me to have a great day, or receiving a text message every twenty minutes from my sister, blabbing on about something cute our cat just did. I use media not only for communication with family members, but also as a hobby of mine. One of my favorite past-times is working with media technology to create works of art. I focus a lot of my attention to all different aspects of media communication and apply it with my artistic ability to put together videos. My main ideas develop from the local news stations, movies, and magazines. The media plays a very powerful role in my life. But I work with it, and I learn something new every single day. To experience a day without media, really opened my eyes. Media is what......

4 Types of Media

...1. There are 4 types of media. Oral Media. Oral communication is the best when you need to encourage interaction, express emotions, or monitor emotional responses. (Textbook, page 96) Advantages – Provide opportunity for immediate feedback. Promote interaction. Allow the expression of the emotions behind the message. Disadvantages – Restrict participation to those physically present. In most cases, reduce communicator’s control over the message. Other than for messages that are prewritten and rehearsed, offer no opportunity to review or edit spoken words. (Textbook, page 100) Written Media. Printed messages have been replaced in many instances by electronic media, although the print medium still has a place in business today. (Textbook, page 96) Advantages – Allow planning, and control of message. Reach geographically dispersed audiences. Can help control the emotional aspects of an interchange by eliminating interpersonal communication. Disadvantages – Usually not conducive to speedy feedback. Lack the rich nonverbal cues provided by oral media. For elaborate documents, can require special skills in preparation and production. (Textbook, page 100) Visual Media. In some situations, a message that is predominantly visual, with text used to support the illustration, can be more effective that a message that relies primarily on text. (Textbook, page 98) Advantages – Can convey complex ideas and relationships quickly. Often less intimidating than......

Media Analysis

...Media Analysis It is surprising how many of the television shows that we watch are very stereotypical and some that are not at all. They show families with different ethics, race, morals, etc. As a human being it is natural to see people a certain way. Many times the media shows it the most. I have watched a few shows and three television shows that caught some of these different family structures were “Switched at Birth”, “Jane by design”, and “90210”. You can be surprised on how they want to catch the audience attention by including different races in different ways. The show "Switched at Birth" tells the story of two teen girls who discover that they were accidentally switched at birth. One of the girls grew up with a white wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while the other lost her hearing as a child due to a case of meningitis, and grew up with a single Hispanic mother in a poor neighborhood. Things become dramatic when both families meet and struggle to learn how to live together for the sake of the girls. It shows a lot of diversity between the families, especially with one of the families being Hispanic, poor and a single mother. You can definitely see the differences. The media seems to show Hispanics as poor and struggling and the "White" family as rich and happy. As an ethnic group Hispanics seem to always be shown as poor. “Jane by Design” is a young teenager whose father died and her mother ran out on Jane and Ben (her older brother) before......

Social Media Analysis Caterpillar Facebook

...Using Engagor, Excel and SPSS Statistical 22, we analyzed the e-business process support of Caterpillar on three social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Next pie chart shows how much firm generated content had been analyzed, setting up a certain time frame. In the following, both quantitative and qualitative insights are provided. Number of analyzed firm generated content Processes supported on social media In order to give a brief overview of the business processes supported by Caterpillar on several social media platforms, we used SPSS Statistics 22. The following pie charts and frequency tables result from our statistical deceptive analysis. Facebook - Caterpillar Inc. Looking at the pie chart and the frequency table of the Facebook page ‘Caterpillar Inc.’, we can conclude that the overall presence of Trade Processes (Authentication, Customer Service and Search) is rather obvious. With 66.7% of the business processes, content regarding Authentication Processes are most likely to be generated by Caterpillar on this social media platform. The fact that this page is the main Facebook page of this company can be a logical explanation for its Trade Process focused nature. Since these processes are rather customer oriented, it is wise to reach their customers via their established brand name and the most well-known social media platform. Furthermore, we also recognize a small amount of Decision Support Processes. In light of the previous explanation...

Media Analysis Feminism

...Media Analysis My analysis of major themes and how the media participate in the construction of attitudes about gender and sexual orientation is predicated upon 16 articles drawn from three major news sources: Newsweek, The New York Times, and The Advocate. The articles were published in the months of January, February, and March. The selection of the articles was not random; I specifically chose articles whose titles and introductions were of particular interest. The three news sources, particularly the Times and The Advocate, published many articles related to LGBT issues—typically greater than a dozen for each weekly search—from which I selected only two per week. In sifting through the 16 articles, I identified three important themes that tie, by and large, the articles together: notions of inalienable rights (marriage), the normalization of homosexuality, and LGBT and frequently, by extension, women’s empowerment. I argue that the Times, by virtue of its wide distribution and generally positive portrayal of LGBT people, attempts to ‘normalize’ (nationally) sexual orientations other than heterosexual; that The Advocate, whose primary audience is LGBT people, attempts to promote LGBT empowerment (encourages LGBT people to stand up for themselves), contemplating a world in which LGBT people enjoy equal rights and equal protection; and that Newsweek, a national weekly magazine, highlights the political debate about rights, generally being more circumspect/judicious......

Analysis of an Echo Sonnet: “to an Empty Page”

...In Robert Pack's, "To an Empty Page," the speaker discusses death and its consequences regarding relief to show the author's purpose as a feeling of loneliness and depression. He does this with the use of an echo sonnet form, foreshadowing within the title, and through the use of emotion evoking pathos. Pack's use of a sonnet for reveals his feelings and emotions toward love, which sonnets are normally about. Readers can feel the raw emotion that Pack reveals in his discussion regarding the speakers possible death and loss of love, thereafter. In addition, the fact that he wrote an echo sonnet aids in the author’s purpose because it allows the reader to be aware of the words meant to be emphasized. Along with its emphasis, the echo, in some cases, seems to answer a rhetorical question made by the speaker. For example, “what’s the end of my life’s long disease? Ease,” (line 7). Within this quote, the speaker is relaying his belief that the only way to relieve himself of life’s burdens is through death. Pack exposes his true feelings of loneliness, which in sonnet form allows readers to sense his passion. The title, "To an Empty Page," Pack eludes that his poem is dark and filled with sadness. A breakdown of the title shows that Pack's diction with using, "To," was as if the speaker was sending his sonnet to somebody; as if he were talking to an imaginary listener. But contrast to that idea, he is sending his sonnet to, "an Empty Page," meaning nobody. These words have a...

Introduction The same-sex marriage movement deals with what is arguably a leading social issue in the United States today. In 1996, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) legally fixed the definition of marriage to be that which includes one man and one woman, including the provision that “states need not recognize a marriage from another state if it is between persons of the same sex” (www.domawatch.org). Grassroots organizations began to form on both sides of the debate concerning same-sex marriage reform. Most discourse research on the issue focuses on the ways in which the media and reform oppositionists (DOMA defenders) use language to display and perpetuate their social and political dominance over...

Media Analysis

...1. For this media analysis assignment, I have chosen to analyze the Trayvon Martin case. I decided to write about this case because the incident only occurred two years ago, which means the problem still exists today. I feel this case is important to call attention to because it highlights the violation of political and civil rights of the people and it emphasizes the larger issues that the United States are facing. This news story did not only circulate in the United States. It reached different parts of the world with the news going viral through the internet, social media, television channels, and international newspaper headlines. Trayvon Martin, a 17-year old African American teenager, was walking back home from a relative’s place when he was fatally shot by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch coordinator, was suspicious of the teen, so he followed Martin and disregarded the police’s orders of not going after him. Although Martin was not armed, Zimmerman claimed that the shot was fired as a result of self-defense. Many people, both nationally and globally, were caught up with following Trayvon Martin’s story. At the same time, protests were growing rapidly across the nation. This case helped raise questions about the media coverage and how media can be misleading, biased, and effective. Also, the case aided in the examination of the state’s self-defense laws and magnified the issue of racism. I am going to stress how messages of the media are framed and try...

The first post was on the 5th, they posted a 1-minute clip ad for World Runtastic and they tagged it “Train for the Wings for Life World Run with Story Running by Runtastic” which is a cause to find a cure for spinal cord injury. It received 2,769 likes and 527 shares. Again there was no post on the 15th so I chose to look at posts on the 16th.

Media Analysis

...The literature of changing people’s opinions also known as the media is consistently portraying the wrong message, with a lack of detail to support the ideas. The author is in full control of manipulating the readers/viewers thoughts. Each author uses different writing style, which then leads to opinions rather than conveying the truthful story . There news provides biased stories to the author’s opinions, but in reality, it should focus more on real world problems, rather than opinions . The media always contains more than one side of the story. The informal style of writing describes the colloquialism and similarity of opinion from two different authors that focus on the same topic to reflect the solemnity and pessimism of this revolutionized era. The supporting texts are attestable, focused, and structured on the problem. Bob Weber’s “Air pollution northeast of Edmonton as bad as world’s largest cities: study ” and Andrew Nikiforuk’s “Alberta’s Oil Legacy: Bad Air and Rare Cancers” are examples of this devious colloquial style portrayed by the media. While Bob Weber and Andrew Nikiforuk share a humane attitude with respect to the study of Alberta’s air pollutants, Nikiforuk is more critical of the detail of exemplifying the seriousness of the problem. Through his description of subsidiary secondary characters , his affective writing style and his manipulative headlines/images , it is clear that Nikiforuk fully comprehends the importance of reducing the air pollutants...

...among others. In superior-subordinate communication, superiors are the most common people who tend to use various compliance gaining tactics so as to get things done. In the movie Lean On Me, there are numerous instances where Clark uses compliance gaining techniques so as to achieve his objectives of restoring the glory of the school. For instance, he threatens to fire the teacher of English for complaining about his treatment. In this scene, Clark uses coercive power. Clark also promises one of his students not to punish him if he tells him those who are doing the wrong things within the school (Schiffer, 257). A major goal of compliance gaining is behavioral conformism, not essentially credence or attitude modification. In a word, media analysis has helped me gain insight into some of the most intricate matters of superior-subordinate communication. For instance, for effective communication to take place between the two parties, then there must be certain communication elements. Concepts such as feedback are very important in ensuring that the organization is in the right course of action. Upward influence is also very important in communication. A subordinate who is gratified with his or her upward communication will be less anxious about communicating upward than a subordinate who is displeased with his or her upward communication.

...Analysis 4 Steven Young ITT-Tech Analysis 4 As per the president and the vice president of this company, I would recommend the following servers. I think first and foremost should be a Threat management server. The work that is being done is more than likely proprietary. There for the threat of a hacker needs to be MOST important. A print server so that the employees have a center location for printing. Also the amount of printing with GEO pictures could lag a server if this processes was to be on a shared with another service. The remote access server allows users to gain access to files and print services on the LAN from a remote location. For example, a user who works from home or being in the field using any Broadband connection will connect into the remote access server to access files, etc. A file server. This server will store and backup all of the employee’s files. An email server. An email server is a good idea for this type of company. Really any company for anti-virus redundancy. Setup properly, you can keep a few more viruses from getting through. A web server. As a cache to improve performance. Most of DNS queries are shared among lots of computers, if they are cached on our DNS server, clients don't need to connect to internet to resolve it, and a much faster LAN connection will do it. Also we want to name some computers that are only available in the LAN (i.e. on our network, you can't access then from the internet). An app server. ......

...Dustyn Macaluso 10/4/15 Soc. of media 330 Media Analysis For chapter one my responsibilities were to cover stories 13-15. Two of these three stories involve health risk and one story pertains to a pro-life argument. The first story I read explained how the nuclear power industry is immune from liability in nuclear accidents. The example used in the article was the 2011 TEPCO Fukushima meltdown. Big corporations commonly go outside the US borders to build their factories or power plants due to two reasons. One much cheaper labor force abroad. Big corporations stand to gain a greater profit if they get close to the same quality of work while paying half the price, sometimes less than what a corporation would pay american workers. Another reason is countries abroad tend to have less strict regulations in certain areas of corporate interest, an example would be the TEPCO. Even though this power plant is host to native Japanese companies, I’m willing to bet General electric has some kind of financial stake invested with Toshiba and Hitachi. Several years after the meltdown there is still radiation present in Fukushima. The Japanese Fisheries research agency conducted a study and found that radiation levels in sea life south of the plant to be 124 times more than the threshold considered safe for human consumption. TEPCO has released inaccurate reports on the actual damage assessed and have released few details to the press to avoid further scrutiny. The real interesting......

Web Pages Analysis

...Web Pages Analysis – Module 7 As the world of technology progresses every day, having a website has become crucial for businesses and schools. “With costs being extremely low at the entry level, it's becoming difficult to imagine a reason for any company of any size not to have a website.” [1] There are multiple benefits of having a website such as: save time and cost, increase sales, services, and accessibility, higher credibility, and so forth. For this research paper I will be analyzing six web pages. Based on the e-business I’m creating, three business pages I’m reviewing are: Essay Lab, Smart Writing Services and Ninja Essays. The remaining three web sites are: Suffolk Community College, Nassau Community College and Dr. Ebrahimi’s website. To begin with, Essay Lab is one of the three writing service businesses I’ve selected. The home page of this particular business is informative and gives a good idea of what the business is about and why would a person need to use their service. However, I feel more information to support their business could be provided. Another issue is the content is not direct to the point; instead it drags on causing lack of interest to the reader. Stating live chat availability and not actually providing it is another problem with the website which fails to meet the 7x2C standard of ‘Completeness and Coverage’. On the other hand, the navigation is consistent and effective. The organization of the website as well is intuitive and easy......
