De vierde mediarevolutie

Het is alweer een lange tijd geleden dat ik voor het eerst met de tram naar school ging. Ik denk dat dit ongeveer 6 jaar geleden is geweest. Voordat ik met de tram naar school ging nam ik altijd de fiets of werd ik wel eens gebracht door mijn vader of moeder. Maar de tijden veranderen en ik maak nu al geruime tijd gebruik van een studenten ov-chipkaart waarmee je als student doordeweeks gratis kunt reizen met het openbaar vervoer. Sinds ik met de tram ben gaan reizen heb ik mij altijd vastgehouden aan het ritueel om mezelf te vermaken tijdens de rit heen en terug. Dit ritueel bestaat uit een muziekje luisteren, uit het raam kijken naar het voorbijrazende landschap en natuurlijk naar de vele aantrekkelijke vrouwen. Hetzelfde gold voor mijn medereizigers of ze lazen een krantje of boek. Maar sinds een jaar of twee is dit beeld erg veranderd. Mensen kijken niet meer zoveel uit het raam of hebben niet meer zo vaak een krant in hun hand, want telefoon met internet, oftewel de smartphone, is een grote rol gaan spelen in het leven van deze forensen. Wij zijn dus in de afgelopen jaren steeds vrijer en onafhankelijker geworden. Persoonlijke vrijheid is belangrijker geworden voor het individu. Mensen leven steeds meer onverstoorbaar langs elkaar heen[1]. De klassieke massacommunicatie maakt plaats voor interpersoonlijke communicatie.

Je zou de smartphone een ware revolutie kunnen noemen, want volgens Kees van Wijk kan je al een revolutie spreken als het straatbeeld en de gedachtegang van mensen ook verandert. Tot nu toe hebben er al drie revoluties plaatsgevonden. Namelijk het fonetisch schrift, de boekdrukkunst en de elektronische media. De jaren die verstrijken tussen deze revoluties worden steeds minder. De uitvinding van elektronische media is nog niet zo lang geleden, maar Van Wijk zegt ook dat de ruimtes tussen mediarevoluties in de…...

...does not necessarily exist in the database but can be produced upon request by a particular user, at the time of request. The view mechanism provides a powerful and flexible security mechanism by hiding parts of the database from certain users. The user is not aware of the existence of any columns or rows that are missing from the view. A view can be defined over several tables with a user being granted the appropriate privilege to use it, but not to use the base tables. In this way, using a view is more restrictive than simply having certain privileges granted to a user on the base table(s). Backup and recovery Backup is the process of periodically taking a copy of the database and log file (and possibly programs) onto offline storage media. A DBMS should provide backup facilities to assist with the recovery of a database following failure. To keep track of database transactions, the DBMS maintains a special file called a log file (or journal) that contains information about all updates to the database. It is always advisable to make backup copies of the database and log file at regular intervals and to ensure that the copies are in a secure location. In the event of a failure that renders the database unusable, the backup copy and the details captured in the log file are used to restore the database to the latest possible consistent state. Journaling is the process of keeping and maintaining a log file (or journal) of all changes made to the database to enable recovery......

...“The Role of Media in Democracy” The media is a lifeline of a nation. It provides not only information on what may affect the normal human being in his day-to-day functioning, but also by other features that keep him informed of developments, national and international. The reach of the media and the effect that it can have on general public has always been recognized and never been challenged. “If it were left on me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” - Thomas Jefferson A democracy is a government of the people, for the people and by the people. Thus, the public opinion is an important aspect. The people in turn could hold the government accountable and change it, if they knew what it was doing. So, there is a need to inform the people of things around them so that there is a check on the government. And media is the one who informs them. As an informer, it should supply information in true and unbiased form and let the public choose, what may be the best in their interest. It may be right in educated democracies like in the UK, but in a country like Pakistan, or Bangladesh where most of the people are illiterate non-participant in asking questions, the matter arises whether the role of media can be limited to supplying information alone. The creation of a public opinion in an uneducated democracy: - Public opinion has to be generated and some agency is......

The Media

...Media has the supremacy to influence millions of individuals through countless formats. Media is everywhere in our daily lives, in television, motion pictures, and radio, influencing what society consume to what society wear. “Media is a very powerful tool capable of mobilizing people’s contemplations and ideologies” (Mock 2004). Most people find television an escape from their hectic daily lives. In our society today, there is an ongoing debate about violence in the media. Media violence has been an issue that most of the literature seems to avoid, but it is important in our lives. To give you perspective on just how much violence kids see on TV, consider this: “The average American child will witness 200,000 violent acts on television by age 18. Kids may become desensitized to violence and more aggressive. TV violence sometimes begs for imitation because violence is often promoted as a fun and effective way to get what you want” (Kids Health, 2010). With this one can see how much of an influence T.V has on kids. As the teens and kids continue to watch and read these violent images depicted in music and film, detrimental effects affect their judgment, attitudes, and behaviors. Concerns about media violence have grown as television has acquired a global audience. While TV violence is not the only cause of aggressive or violent behavior, it is clearly a significant factor. Television can be a powerful influence in developing value systems and shaping behavior.......

...responds obediently to God’s word is a responds of faith and trust. To his end, to hear God’s word is to obey God’s word. (Ex.19:5, Jr. 7:23, Act. 5:21, Phm 21, e.t.c). Faith: It simply means trust or dependence on someone (God), or something. From Heb. 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Trust: is define as faith you have on someone or something Wine: is a symbol of merriment in the Jewish culture (Joel 2:19). In the New Testament, wine was used as medicine and disinfectant. Scripture condemns drunkenness and overindulgence but pictured wine as part of typical ancient meal. Some of the biblical scholars see wine in John chapter two as a symbol, which has a deeper meaning. According to Rev. Elder Dr. Okechukwu Kalu, wine as used in John chapter two refers to “a new teaching which came after the Jewish leaders have taught the people the old teaching.” From this, it is clear that this place did not teach us to be drinking wine instead; we should embrace the new teaching brought to us by Jesus. (John 13:34-35). Mary Command to the Disciple: Mary’s command to the servants at Cana — "Do whatever he tells you" (Jn. 2:5) — represents her last recorded words in the Bible. Moreover, they serve as much more than an exhortation to obedience. | Other parallel of Mary’s Command in the Scriptures At Mount Sinai: First, Mary’s words recall the typical response for covenant obedience in the Old Testament. For example, the theme......

...Argumentative Essay: Media The media surrounds us, from the newspaper and books we read, to the television and internet that we watch each day. Without the media, we the people in society will be disconnected from the rest of the world. The flow of information is essential for the purposes of community expansion and the media assists this. Without an extensive range of information, people’s opinions would be bounded and their impressions and expectations of the world surround them will be exploited. Through media, it is not only communication means used to distribute the flow of information, it is very important for the development of countries especially in the aspect of politic and economy. It is also one of the lead foundations of entertainment. Media such as newspaper, magazine and books always become an influential medium throughout the decades in the most of nations.

...The Media and its responsibilities Introduction to Ethics and Social Responsibility (SOC120) Aron Scott Instructor: Shelia Farr June 1, 2015 There has been a lot of controversy as of late surrounding the media’s focal topics and its responsibility to the public. According to Keith Davis, “Social Responsibility is the obligation of the decision maker to take decisions which protect and improve the welfare of the society as a whole with their own interest.” However, the simple function that we evaluate is media provides the public with a bunch of news, information and entertainment. These news stations take a story that they feel will increase their ratings and the stories that they feel will big about a bigger controversies. The media’s main function should be informing their viewers about all the current events going on around the world and also in the state that they based in. When the media decides to expose a particular issue they should do so in an objective, fair and accurate way, but that is not always the case in most circumstances. Utilitarianism suggests that there is an obvious solution that is fair, and it may be one that appeals to common sense as well. If you look at the responsibilities of the media from a utilitarian point of view the media should inform people about issues that are related. For example the big uproar about white police officers shooting black individuals that have made the public turn against the police departments. However, there......

Companies dedicate a considerable amount of their financial resources to their advertising budget. Media placement usually counts for the majority of the advertising budget. Analysing the advantages and disadvantages of media options: The advantages of television as an advertising medium include: Dynamic environment: Television has a strong impact created by the combination of sight and sound, and provides the opportunity to demonstrate the features and benefits of a product and service and how it can be used. The use of special effects can create excitement and grab the attention of the target audience. Reach: Television advertising can reach a large percentage of the population on either a national or regional level.

...Stratification Media Analysis by: Simone Walton The program’s title is ‘How I Met Your Mother’. It is a romantic comedy television series that aired from 2005 to 2014. The social theme that I will be discoursing is Sexism. The popular CBS television show How I Met Your Mother is currently off air. Through the example of this show and the lens of ideology, I argue that How I Met Your Mother has a sexist ideology that supports the stereotypes that women are stupid, easily manipulated, and “crazy”, especially when there is a man in her life. I argue that this sexist way of seeing the world is counterproductive to gender equality and promotes simplistic stereotypes of women that are widely accepted by the audience because these stereotypes are packaged as jokes that make the show and specifically the character Barney Stinson, funny and popular. Ideological analysis focuses on “how the elite have legitimatized their interests, specifically through the enactment of posturing their political necessities as natural, universal, and immune to history, thereby insulating the social order against change”. In this example the elite are men and their interests (particularly the interest of Barney) are presented as winning women over through manipulation in order to have sex with them. How I Met Your Mother runs on the assumption of the world that women are emotionally unstable, especially in relationships. There are many examples of the main character Ted dating women who turn out to......

China Rev Up

...The documentary: “China Revs Up” talks about the quick industrialization of China, and the problems that tag along such an aggressive industrial program in a short period. China once had over a billion poor people, but now it has the world’s fastest growing economy. China’s economy has been growing at an amazing rate of 8% per year for more than 20 years. While the economy is growing, the need for energy is growing at a faster rate. The documentary mentions that China could match the carbon emissions of the US projected by 2030. China’s energy is mainly supplied by coal, and 7 of the world’s 10 most polluted cities come from China. The major problems are due to overpopulation and present economic thinking, and also globalization. As documented in the film, The United States has set the benchmark for high living, high energy use. The US is one of the most consumptive countries in the world and China has really taken western consumerism as its model. Since the capitalist economic reform in China in the 1980s, the Chinese economy has been rising significantly, and the typical income has multiplied by 4 in the past 2 decade. People are leaving their traditions and their villages and farm lands to move to the city. As more and more shopping malls are build all over the country, and as a result energy consumption has risen drastically. China burned 25% more coal than the US in 2001. China’s economy grew incredibly quickly and with no concurrent development in environmental policy.......

...Adv. English 11 A4 Annotated Bibliography Rev. of Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby'., by Brian Sutton. Gale Cengage Learning. The Explicator, 1997. Web. 23 Mar. 2010. <>. Brian Sutton asserts that F. Scott Fitzgerald's book, The Great Gatsby, has four interlinked images that traces Gatsby’s rise and fall as he attempts to recapture Daisy Buchanan's love. The first image is in the beginning of the book when Gatsby is seen by the narrator holding his arms wide open to a green light in the distance. Which we later learn is that the green light is on Daisy's porch. It symbolizes how Gatsby wants Daisy's love back again and that his arms are wide open for her. The second image occurs in the middle of the book when Gatsby experiences a moment of triumph, Gatsby and Daisy finally meet. During this meeting, Daisy is smoking a cigarette...which is another symbol of light! The third image is when Tom and Gatsby finally confront each other and while all this i is going on, Daisy throws her cigarette and the burning match to the carpet...which symbolizes that their(Gatsby and Daisy) love is over. The fourth image is at the end of the book when Gatsby is standing in the distance where he once looked at the light in Daisy's house, just hoping and praying that maybe she will return her love for him. Throughout this article, Sutton uses examples from the text to......

...The Power of Media to influence youth Abstract: This study is based on one of the most common methods of qualitative research – Thematic Analysis. It highlights the extent to which print media is using sexuality to generate interest amongst the youth for a particular product or service.
