Intro: 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 .
Smokers, dippers, and chewers definitely smokers will wanna read the stats on risk of cancer in smokers and make the switch to smokeless. Smokeless is as safe as driving cars the British health researchers show that smokeless tobacco is 1 to 1000 times safer than smoking. Studies have been very biased and studies have shown that smokeless risk is not elevated same as in non users.(Rodu) everyone that has studied smokeless tobacco have misinformed the public because they want a tobacco free society(Rodu). “Oral cancer is very rare in the 300 million people about 10,000 people out of the population”(Rodu). Chewers and dippers do not have a elevated risk.
One suggestion to stop this developing addiction is to shut off or take away the device for a specified period of time. This would force teenagers to physically interact with the world around them rather than just through technology (Wallace). Slowly decreasing the amount of time the teen has with their device, the more likely they are to not depend upon it. The same is true with adults.
Nike’s TV commercial "Chamber of Fear" was introduced as a creative, inventive and well-intentioned advertisement in China, but quickly became involved in cultural disputes after its debut. Although social networking was not so developed back to that days, the information was spread so fast that after several days more than 900 messages of the Chinese citizens have been posted on several major Chinese websites. After this wave of discontent, Chinese authorities have banned this commercial. According to the State Administration of Television, Film and Radio (2004), the commercial “violates regulations that mandate that all advertisements in China should uphold national dignity and interest and respect the motherland's culture”. Moreover, the administration claimed that “It also goes against the rules that require ads not to contain content that blasphemes national practices and cultures”.
There are various different ways people get information about government and politics. However, the three main ways are from social media, the news media, and from the way people talk about politics with family and friends. But when it comes to receiving news for the Liberals and Conservatives, they have different point of views and trust only few. Three of the Newscasts that have Conservative and Liberal Values are CNN, FOX, and MSNBC. It is believed that CNN is fifteen percent Liberal and that MSNBC is twelve percent Liberal, however FOX is forty-seven percent Conservative.
In almost all of the past elections, about half of the voting age population did not actually vote in the elections(mashables.com). We can say this by looking at the 2012 elections in which there were “241 million people of voting age, but only 130.2 million actually cast ballots in the general election — a turnout rate of just 58.6 percent” claims Brad Plumer from Vox.com. If the voting percentage stays this way, it can make it hard to run even a decent democracy. To solve this problem, we can teach 16 year olds to hold an interest in voting which would also influence their parents or other family members who do not vote to at least hold an interest in politics and possibly start voting. This movement would result in a “trickle up” effect, and affect voting rates on the long run (fairvote.org).
In addition, from an article from www.voteat6.ie/, the writer confirmed that the eighteen to thirty year old voting turnout rate is rock-bottom. If sixteen and seventeen is combined to that rate, it can significantly increase. Social media is in the mainstream within sixteen and seventeen year olds and those who are engrossed to politics are fed with news for what a runner for president is doing. On the other hand, sixteen and seventeen year olds intermittently volunteer countless times, are able to drive, and work without restrictions. In conclusion, sixteen is a preferable age to start voting because people that age are up to date and have time.
It does not take long for a debate to arise after a school shooting to argue which side is to blame. However, the debate has done nothing but made it worse for the trend of school shootings as it typically results in nothing. With two opposing sides, they barely consider any reasonable solutions since they are more focused on worrying if the gun or the shooter is to blame for the death of hundreds of people. In an article written by the Gallups’ Lida Saad concluded, “According to two recent Gallup polls, from 2011 and 2013, more people believe that mass shootings result from a failure of the mental-health system than from easy access to guns.” Gun advocates are in favor of this reasoning because they believe that the system is failing to identify mental health patients in regards to gun violence.
Introduction The concept of Internet is one that is profound and free, yet it is controlled and censored almost every part of the world, and critically censored in a few countries (i.e. China, Iran, Cuba). In 2011, Freedom House ranked China as the fourth lowest country with the lowest levels of Internet and new media freedom (Freedom House, 2011). Censorship is defined as “the institution, system or practice of reading communication and deleting material considered sensitive or harmful” (Merriam Webster Dictionary).
Wireless network connections for mobile devices are similar to other types of network connections, but have important differences that should be considered in the risk assessment: 2. Disable unneeded network services. (Bluetooth, IrDA and WLANs) Limit and/or set up firewalls for networking services that are not needed, or which should not run at default permissions.
According to an article on CNN, Muslims only make up less than one percent of the American population (Yan). This number can be surprising to many Americans because of what they see and hear on media. There are many misconceptions about Muslims in our society that is causing hate towards them. Through a personal story in Suzanne Barakat’s speech titled “Islamophobia killed my brother. Let’s end the hate” she effectively shows how bigotry against Muslims is a problem in society.
One person, Christopher Jones who actually studies publication bias at a medical school, did a study in 2009 and found out that 32% of the clinical trials that were funded by the FDA that year had hidden information from the final report. However, even though this seems like a problem that could be resolved from getting rid of priority review vouchers; the positive results outweigh the negative ones. Without the use of vouchers in our country and others, no cures would ever be researched because most are too expensive to produce. With the use of vouchers, the AIDS vaccine is now able to be considered possible because it allows for most of the production costs to be taken care of, so the only worries the pharmaceutical companies have are making sure it works correctly. Vouchers not only allow it to be possible to look at cheaper ways to produce these expensive cures, but it also helps out the economy because countries who need these cures buy
The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures (Hall, 2014). In the scenario, it is important to remember that the employer is a government entity and the Fourth Amendment was originally designed to limit government authority as it applies to unreasonable searches and seizures (Hall, 2014). You would not be able to make a strong argument that the government violated the Fourth Amendment in this scenario. The property, whether it is a laptop, cell phone, or tablet, belongs to the government. Government entities have policies that employees must read and sign specifically acknowledging there is no expectation of privacy on these devices owned by the government.
AARP strongly opposes ANY bill that raises healthcare costs and lowers coverage. AARP urged the Senate to focus on bipartisan solutions that will lower the cost and improve care for the American people. They also gave out a number so their members could call their Senators and complain. There were a ton of comments on their page about
