The Japanese had done many ruthless things towards other countries, and they did not have a bomb there, so they could not do anything to defend themselves. Although there are many reasons to drop the bomb on Hiroshima, there were just as many reasons as why the bomb should not have been dropped. The bomb killed 60,000-80,000 people, and most of those civilians had nothing to do with the war. As the years went on, many more people died, which was caused by illnesses from radiation exposure. Even if people survived the bombing, their children would also be affected.
One of the most horrible events of the Japanese occupation of China was the Nanjing massacre. However, in this modern society, most people do not know about how and why many Chinese were butchered in the city of Nanjing. In addition, the Nanjing massacre is denied by many conservative Japanese politicians because this event is seen as Japan’s greatest shame and they do not want their future generations to know and learn about the terrible massacre. But, there are many possible explanations why this event happened and generally many historians believe that the brutal Nanjing massacre occurred because of the very tough fight that Chinese armies had put up in Shanghai in 1937. However, “Japanese imperialism and their desire for expansion” and
The internet fits in because you can basically get anything from there. You can get digital newspaper media, as well as the social medias, etc., so the possibilities are basically limitless which makes the internet so useful to people today. Media lowers the the information cost for viewers and readers. Newspapers have lost readers and advertising to the internet, and I think the reason why is cost (The Economist). If you have a phone, what you have to pay for are the data bills, carrier costs, etc.

I believe technology is a good thing and a necessity to live in our society today. These advances have made our countries safer and live simpler. Advancing technology has brought us the all powerful social media, smartphones, Biotechnology, and online shopping. However they also brought us hackers, cyber warfare, and people socializing online rather than in person. The days of going to a library for information are long gone.Malcolm gladwell argues that he does not see any positive political results from instant technology, and, in fact, the instantaneous nature of communicating events increases the likelihood of error and emotionalism rather than thought.Nicholas carr argues that google is making us stupid and technology is affecting our brains negatively.
Arguments of those critics support the claim that: new forms of electronic media are changing our brains to think in a less thorough and progressive manner. This is to say things like PowerPoint, the new standard of edited videos and Twitter are causing our ways of thinking to shift to a shallower way of thinking. Pinker contends that the very people that are making exponentially more new, insightful, and progressive discoveries regularly do so using these new forms of media. This is supported by Pinker’s claim that while neural plasticity allows for our brains to be changed by the world around us, it does not cause our brains to be limited in their consumption and application of information by adopting the same shallow, bulleted format presented in electronic

According to Scott (2007:16), they have been growing out of ‘old media’ for some time. The author states that what distinguishes new media from traditional media is the former’s horizontal orientation as compared to the top-down approach associated with the old media channels such as radio, television and print media. In this case, the audience has some autonomy and control in deciding what to consume and when to consume them, and are also in a position to generate and pass on their own messages and feedback. This way, the gate keeping process has become liberalized, freed from centralization and bureaucratization thereby offering greater immediacy in feedback as well as provide interactivity in the communication
This lead to a notable surge in the number of orders placed on the online shopping sites. Short-term Impact on E-commerce Partners: Stagnant goods, returned undelivered orders, reduction in the cash flow, all together came as a severe blow for the e-commerce partners. But economists, as well as the e-commerce business sectors, believe that this effect is a temporary one and that the long-term impact is going to make things better for them. Patching up the
Violence was also present in Jaffna and Vavuniya as explosions were detonated in both areas, reducing voter turnout in these regions due to a lack of safety (Daily FT 2015). The military was also responsible for establishing 400 roadblocks in areas with high concentrations of Tamil voters who almost exclusively voted for Maithripala Sirisena. This was also viewed as an act of voter suppression by the government (FARS News Agency 2015). In many areas of the country, voting was limited because of this violence, abuse of state resources (military) by the government, and basic electoral infractions. The violence and presence of military deterring voters from the polling centers seemed to have exclusively occurred in regions with high minority populations, regions that voted strongly in favor of Maithripala Sirisena.
