In the movie “The Network”, a newscaster named Howard Beale has a mental breakdown on live tv and urges for the viewers to address the existential threats that are transpiring before their very eyes and to show some enraged compassion for a life without peril. Howard supports his claim by describing their corrupt world and explaining how expressing their anger will create change. Howard’s purpose is to convince his viewers that life they are currently living is no way to live and to inspire for the satisfactory living. In a furious and blunt tone, Beale uses repetition of words to further exaggerate the horrid events that are occurring, and appeals to pathos to make the audience realize their value and how it’s being undermined.
As some of us might know there has been a passionate debate on the issue of the net neutrality in which there is strong feelings on both sides of the debate. Net neutrality is the idea government should regulate the internet so that the major telecommunications companies won’t be able to turn the internet landscape into a monopoly. This paper will examine both sides of the net neutrality debate in which the content of this paper will explore both the pro and cons of net neutrality. At the end of the paper I will reveal my true thoughts about net neutrality and will discuss what I have learned about this issue in the process.
Do we depend on the Internet to answer all of our questions? Nicholas Carr, an American author, wrote “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” published in 2008 in The Atlantic, and he argues about the effects of the Internet on literacy, cognition, and culture. Carr begins his argument with the ending scene of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Carr believes that we depend on the Internet more than just looking up the answers in the book ourselves. He is trying to prove that our generation is consumed by the Internet. In addition to this, I feel his argument is effective because he builds credibility with personal facts, using statistics, and making emotional appeals throughout the essay. He gives many details and examples to backup and support his argument.

I one hundred percent disagree with the “decision” of the government ridding of the Internet entirely, as if that isn't clear enough already. Though the government might find the termination of the Internet useful in some circumstances, I have no doubt that it may result in riots, violence, protests, and more in order to get it
Net-neutrality is the principle that providers of Internet services enable access to all contents with no prejudice or discrimination against sites or products regardless of the source. In December, the U.S. government repealed the national regulations that prevented “Internet Service Providers from blocking legal content, throttling traffic or prioritizing content on their broadband networks” in favor of a “looser set of requirements that ISPs disclose any blocking or prioritization of their own content.” In summary, the government has decided to change net-neutrality and make it easier to profit from. The government’s want, and subsequent success, to change the strict guidelines by which net-neutrality operated with is supported by the Chairman
Nowadays, the internet is the biggest marketing and media tool that people can use today. It can have various effects on people’s daily life ranging from bad to beneficial. In the essay “Is Google making us stupid” by Nicholas Carr writes about how internet usage in the 21st century is changing people’s reading habit and a cognitive concentration. Particularly, he emphasizes on Google’s role in this matter and its consequences on making people machine like. Carr also stated that the online reading largely contributes to people’s way of reading a book. He is extremely focused on the online reading’s distraction that most affects people’s mind.
In “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” Nicholas Carr uses some evidences in his argument in order to convince the idea of the other people . I believe Carr’s argument is effective because he starts explaining how he feels when he is reading a book and immersing himself in a book. However now, because he uses Internet a lot, he loses his focus of attention after reading some pages. He compares about the past reading ability with the present like “The deep reading that used to come naturally has become a struggle” (Carr 57). Carr also tells that he is not the only one who is getting a trouble with reading. Instead, he believes
Carr uses this period in time to positively show how the Internet has impacted people’s lives by providing statistics which also strengthens his ethos. “By 2009, adults in North America were spending an average of twelve hours online a week, double the average in 2005.” (86) Thus Carr may or may not have started writing his book in 2007 due to technology related statistics emerging. Which in the same year, Apple Inc. CEO, Steve Jobs announced the iPhone and Google released Android. As technology advanced society became more and more associated with and furthermore influenced by it. With this occasion, it provides Carr with a very large and wide variety of an audience. Nearly everyone is coming in contact with the Internet and Carr informs the public of the issues at its
If one takes the approach that terror can be a means of achieving political goals, one can therefore argue that the crimes of terrorism and money laundering are indeed distinctive in their nature. Nonetheless, in agreement with Dr. Mugarura in his PhD thesis, it can be stated that the distinction between both have been submerged since money launderers, narcotic drug dealers, and terrorists have established partnerships to use terror as a means of achieving their objectives. For this very reason, terrorists utilize typical money laundering methods to move money around and integrate it into the financial system.

New technology is constantly emerging and this new technology gives members of the public more and more opportunities to break the laws which are put in place to protect them. Law reform is a slow process, it takes a long time for an act to be amended. The Australian Law Reform Commission will complete 1 to 2 inquiries a year which shows just how long the process can be. During this time new technology will emerge which will more than likely render the amendments when they are passed inadequate to suit the new technology. Making laws to suit something that has never been see before is a task that the Law making bodies are faced with and although difficult, it needs to be done quickly in order to avoid crimes that will more than likely be committed.
In the era of Obama, net neutrality rules were set to provide a free and fair internet experience to everyone . Net neutrality is the concept of making all content on the internet available to people at the same speed . However, 3 years later, those laws are now being threatened to be revoked by the Federal Communications Commission(FCC), a US agency that regulates the internet and other technologies to make sure that they are being used fairly ,. Since then, there has been a lot of controversies regarding Net neutrality due to the recent decision made by the FCC to end it .
The internet, as it is now, has paved a new path for communication in the modern era. Since its inception the internet has stood by a simple rule, all data is equal. Through the implementation of legislation and policies this simple rule may however be changed so that certain data may be prioritized. This would exclusively benefit telecommunications corporations while diminishing the ability of the general user. Total net
