There’s one thing many of us cannot live without. Or at least think we can’t live without; our cell phones. Many, if not all of us have cell phones. Over 6 billion texts are sent every day in the US. 25% of those text messages are sent while driving.
With the world population being 7,259,902,243 people, a grossly huge amount of people use the Internet, the number being 3,366,261,156 people worldwide. That ends up being almost half of the population, the percentage being 46.4% 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
Stating Google has become so powerful that it can practically predict what one wants to find on the internet. In the end, Carr, is persuading people that to remain keen and intelligent they should always fall back on the “Traditional” ways to read, but at the same time it doesn’t hurt to skim an article to retain what is necessary. So, his message is that Google is not actually making people stupid, it is just making people forget the traditional sense of reading which is causing the lack of attention in today’s world compared to when there were no computers, internet, or Google. I feel the rapid changes of the digital era haven’t too much affected me. I grew up in an age where devices and communications were on an uproar.
Americans who had an assault weapon before, will still continue to have it. Banning the assault weapons is just a waste of time because society will continue to do what they do best. It is pleasant to say, the banning of assault weapons will most definitely reduce crime rates. Numbers might not make a drastic difference, but you will be able to see the difference in society. After all of our information we gathered, we can infer assault weapons are very harmful.
RRR: The Culture of Denial In the essay “The Culture of Denial” (2015) by Christopher Delgado, he expounds on the opinion that there is an issue within the public with the trusting of the scientific community’s discoveries. Delgado does this by providing numerous examples of the kind of discoveries that a good amount of the public does not fully believe along with some examples of why those people do not trust said scientific concept. Delgado explains this in order to expose the masses to how much we mistrust the scientific community, and how we must alter that mistrust into trust. The intended audience for this reading is the general public, or specifically the ones who are in denial of scientific information. I somewhat disagree that
According to the article Lindy West was being trolled by an online person and was sending her cruel and unusual things. The one thing I thought Lindy did well was that she fought through it in a good way. For example, when she first started talking to the man she said, “Hi, how are you?”(Say it all in Caps). She was really thinking there and if I would have been being trolled I would have probably got really mad and started swearing at the person. According to Stephen Carter in “Integrity” the first step is discerning.
Though it seems miserable, she enjoys it, it 's the only thing she knows. When it comes to the issues in the article, but with the ideas I disagree. It may be biased, but I don 't believe every teenager is like this. Although it 's not a stretch to say we are all addicted to our phones, but it is when you´re saying that 's all we do. This article states that all teens waste their life away on their phone.
I believe John Gardner wrote Grendel, not to make us sympathize for Grendel, but to help us understand why Grendel has this dark, pessimistic view of the world. John Gardner did an amazing job narrating a back story from the monstrous point of view of Grendel. There are many people who disagree and say John Gardner wrote Grendel to make the monster of Grendel seem more monstrous, and barbaric, but I feel these people are not fully digesting the text. There is plenty of evidence that shows Grendel was written so we could better understand the mind of Grendel. John Gardner’s Grendel, is all in the monster Grendel’s point of view.
When using the internet often we tend to get addicted, and when we are away from the internet all we wonder about is what we are missing out on. “We want to be interrupted because each interruption brings us a valuable piece of information. To turn off these alerts is to risk feeling out of touch, or even socially isolated," wrote Carr. I am addicted to the internet, and when I am away from it can get tough. When I do my homework I turn off my phone, and put it in another room or else I get distracted and cannot get anything done.
Is It True? Living in a Fake News World “But I 'm ravenous for news, any kind of news; even if it 's false news, it must mean something” (Atwood, 1985). In this digital day and age, people have access to information and news at any time. People give their attention to a headline, an article, or a link just because they are posted on the internet. As a result, people have created a vicious cycle in which they search, read, believe, and share what they have read, without considering the reliability of the information and news.
