It occurs in media, music, Hollywood, and everyday life. The cultures which are mistreated are ones that have been abused in the past as well. This distortion of culture is often harmful and offensive, and it a problem that needs a solution. In modern society, culture is an issue that is debated often, as people argue whether the misrepresentation of minorities in media is really a problem that needs to be addressed because many do not realize the harm of it. Erich Hatala Matthes, professor of moral philosophy, says, “Cultural appropriation can often seem morally problematic.
While technologies such as online social networks do provide a place to explore and express our own opinions across all social lines,the same tools that can provide opportunities can also be used to victimize others. With the increased use and interest in online technologies,the bullying and online cheating potential has grown exponentially nowadays, making the problems more concerned among both parents and educators. Consequently,learning how to become a critical thinker and tell the difference between right and wrong is extremely essential. With the ease of access and the speed of connectivity the internet provides nowadays, almost everyone can violate and judge others’ life. When students perceived as different from what others consider the ‘’mainstream’’ have always been targets of bullying(qtd from Mike & Teresa,136).
Technology has gotten so high tech in this past generation that it is affected the ways students cheat. Students have started to lose their sense of morals and ethics that is causing them not to care that they are cheating. The fact is plagiarism is getting worse and worse because cell phones are an immediate access to find the information they need. Plagiarism is more than just academic, legal, political, and social debate. Saha states that people rely on “copy and paste” when it comes down to plagiarizing and being lazy in this society(2377).
Professional Dishonesty – Plagiarism Professional dishonesty is an issue of utmost importance. Plagiarism is arguably the most severe form of cheating as it violates the main pillars of engineering ethics as well as the TAMU Code of Honor; lying, cheating and stealing. In order to understand what plagiarism is we first have to explain the term and fully understand it. Plagiarism is the act of using another person’s work as your own without his/her consent. Plagiarism considerably devalues academic and professional work.
Recent studies say 92% of teens go online daily, as said by bigthink.com. There is a wide range of vulgar things kids are exposed to online such as inappropriate pop-up ads, illegal drugs, and criminal activity. According to the dictionary, pop culture is: modern popular culture transmitted via mass media and aimed particularly at younger people. Pop culture influences our world tremendously. The younger generations see activities that celebrities are doing and suppose it is acceptable for them to do too.
Teenagers will find ways around passing the tests and would benefit more from realistic, informative activities. Also, teachers and coaches can be a great mentor to confide in and taking this away from a child can lead to more serious issues. Something I realized while researching is that the students with the highest likeliness to abuse drugs are often not even tested. This can make these students feel alone and as if their issues do not matter. I feel the knowledge I have about this topic is dense and properly defends my stance on the change needed.
Plagiarism can range from a small dishonesty such as a minor “copy and paste” of a piece of information, to a much more serious problem such as the duplication of another author’s entire work. Given that plagiarism is regarded as a case of “academic misconduct” and therefore a compromise of reliability, honesty and/or integrity, its consequences are commonly serious, from various sanctions to expulsion.

Government censorship of internet Internet censorship has been a significantly debated topic ever since online technology became an undeniably fundamental tool in human life. Over the last three decades, new technology affected people considerably, in almost every aspect of their lives, whether positively or negatively. People now have access to vast amounts of information because of the internet. Therefore, steps to lower its impact on the population had to be taken, and one of the easiest solutions is censorship. “Censorship is the act of suppressing or deleting material considered objectionable.” (Ballaro and DiLascio 1).
Technology does have its pros of creating new ways to meet people all around the world and allows us to communicate faster however it has hurt us more in our daily lives. We spend so much time invested in our technology that we lose 30 minutes of face-to-face interaction for every hour we waste on our computers
