The politics and culture of the 1950s were positively affected due to the innovation of the television. It irreversibly changed how the American people lived their day-to-day lives through televised entertainment, commercials, and political events and news. Although television was not new, beginning as early as the 1920s, it wasn’t until the 1950s that it truly took off and the industry boomed quickly becoming a national pastime. Television provided families, friends, and young people with new sources of entertainment such as college and professional sports and game shows that were being broadcasted across America. A water administrator in Toledo, Ohio reported that water use sometimes surged because of people using their toilets while on commercial breaks.
As reviewed in class, many adult Americans used to think that Rock and Roll and it’s exponents were a “bad influence” to teenagers back on the days. It is important to point out that many social changes on that time were a result of sociocultural modifications around authority figures like the government, parents, school authorities, etc. With the influence of Rock and Roll, people started to question topics like: religion, politics, social structures and sexual statements and teens showed attitudes against any form of authority that tried to control them. After World War II, adolescents showed more violent attitudes against social statements at that time. Adolescent delinquency rates grew rapidly.

My love for the film was rekindled in ninth grade. In English class, one of my classmates did a project on Mulan as a hero. Her passionate discourse brought back memories of watching Mulan conquer obstacles on weekends, and I desperately wanted to get home to watch it. I couldn 't believe the same childish glee I felt when I saw my animated childhood companions hadn 't changed over the years. What did change was that lines that I had once considered to be jokes suddenly had meaning.
From carving pumpkins to throwing a party to baking cookies and trick-or-treating, there was always something to keep me highly entertained. Over the years, the traditions have managed to stay the same, although our family continues to grow and change a little more over time. I hope to someday pass down the beloved Halloween traditions of the Day family to my children. Hopefully they will enjoy these memorable experiences as much as I did. I know that Halloween would not have ever felt the same if it were not for my parents and siblings teaching me the traditions we have long carried out, and I am ever so grateful to have experienced them.
Clothing also underwent a lot of changes as new styles influenced by many different cultural aspects gained popularity. They were not specific to boys or girls and almost everything was unisex (Mathieson). The punk movement was one of the most noticeable changes in fashion. Heavily inspired by different singers and bands, it featured glamorous clothing with lots of glitter and colourful materials. In the mid-eighties, the singer Madonna caught on, and many girls started copying her daring outfits, which included some clothes that were traditionally considered for men.
I started my life in Janesville, Wisconsin with three loving brothers and a mom and dad that loves their new baby girl. With my strawberry curly hair and blues eye I went on with life and could not wait for tomorrow to go to pre school to see my friends. I would have birthday parties and all my friends would come over to play with my new toys and eat my special homemade cake my mom made. I would sit at my dad's work drawing at the little table next to my mom typing away on the big blocky computer and printing recipes on the old fashioned calculator. I would draw pictures with people that had 5 tongues and 3 eye and saying very funny and funny with some letters written to read through a mirror.
Through programs aired on television during the 1950s and 1960s, women were encouraged to engage in domestic jobs as housewives, but as time progressed, the role of the female on television developed, encouraging women to view actresses as empowering. A prime example of the stereotypical label of a woman during the time can be seen through the television program, “I Love Lucy,” on CBS. Released on October 15, 1951, this sitcom reached an audience of ten million households, while also ranking number one in America for three years consecutively (Stark 26). The lead star, Lucille Ball, triumphed as one of the first females to appear as a lead role, representing women in the entertainment business. Her character, Lucy Ricardo, portrayed an
Both sides gave deep and personal thoughts about Rap music and what it stands for. From the male’s perspective on Rap music, they say people think it’s about sex, drugs, money, violence, gangbanging, and disrespecting women.

Second season in and people are still watching every week to see what wild ride they will embark on next alongside Ed. Although we did see FOTB run a slight risk of being pulled, the show has secured a credible comeback. The way that this TV comedy strategically moves along the way with relatable things makes it a show that can instantly get you hooked. I count myself amongst the people who have seen scenes where they could relate to something the show was presenting. Similarities can be seen amongst Fresh Off the Boat and The Wonder Years.

Americans had right around 1965 more dramatic choices than ever before as television entertained and guerilla street theatre expressed antiwar and other themes for free. 1960s film/television and theatre were highly influential in the decade 's growth. The decade was full of many hardship and was a time of self discovery. Many drugs and psychedelics such as LSD were used at the time and made the 60s what it was.
Date rape is a unacceptable reoccurring problem in our society, where men feel ownership over women and a perceived entitlement to have sexual intercourse if they go out on a date with a woman, whether or not the woman wants to. When teenagers enter the world of high school, they are looking forward to the dating scene. For most teens, being in a relationship will be something to cherish forever. However, some may experience a very high level of aggression and violence in the relationship. “If you were to go into a high school and ask them how many have been in a relationship in the last six months where there 's been some aggression, the rate would be somewhere around 30%, for both boys and girls," says psychologist Jennifer Connolly.

The book opens with a palpable and lightening quote: Dreams played an important part in our lives in those early days in England (3). Adults, children and everyone inbetween can relate due to being raised on the idea that dreams come true. Generations change but the idea does not at all, Disney’s classic “When you wish upon a star,” released in 1940, to Shia LaBeouf’s, a modern day celebrity, famous video “ Just do it,” both prompt the idea of following a goal or dream.
