Sports Fund Philippine Olympic Committee President Cojuangco affirmed that sports does not only concern in bearing medals for the nation, but it is also imperative for the growth of Filipino citizens conventionally that is why the value coming from the government must be revised (Gutierrez, 2012). Through the years, insufficient funding has been one of the concerns of athletes and sports officials that many experts believed caused the poor performance of Filipino athletes at international competitions and also hinder the development of sports in the country. Besides, the gradual improvement of Philippines` sportsmen was due to the lack of sports equipment and infrastructure (Cruz, Mendoza, & De Lima, 2011). Similarly, Filipino Olympic swimmers Jessie Lacuña and Jasmine Alkhadi expressed their frustrations were the former yearns for training centers like the ones in Singapore where swimmers can relish solid support from the government while the latter admitted that the journey before heading to the London Olympics was challenging due to the country`s limited resources (Gutierrez, 2012). Dispirited as the athletes are, the efforts made by the government to stabilize a stronger sports foundation were not totally sensed.
Neil Postman Rhetorical Analysis Inventions are changing before our eyes and the world does not seem to question what new technology reveals and what its consequences will be. In the future of technology, there are many individuals who see technology as either a sanction or a burden. Many individuals cannot seem to imagine a world with no technology, however, there are many others who argue that humans are becoming too dependent on technology instead of their own observances and cognition. Technology continues to develop and has become affected people’s everyday life. This issue is addressed by an American Critic and an educator by the name Neil Postman.
Immigrant’s one thing, full citizenship, or a legal status that will allow them to work, but it has been a long road and the wait continues. Based on the experience of Filipino immigrants, some of these key points on the immigration reform make no sense. For starters it creates an even more complex pathway to citizenship for all immigrants and expensive fees that many immigrants can’t afford to pay. As mentioned, in the immigration reform, one key point is improving the current system by developing a new form of identification for all immigrants but billions of tax dollars will be used where instead can be used in more beneficial ways. According to NAFCON, for many Filipinos in the United States in particular, “For the family of immigrants it ends petitions for married children over 30 and siblings 18 months after the new law begins.” In recent news, the Filipino community fears that the immigration reform will leave some important factors out; families of Filipino veterans are concerned that this reform will leave out the veterans who fought in WW II.
Due to the invention of modern technology, America has become the melting pot of different cultures and it shows most people are open to becoming cosmopolitan. The invention of technology have given society the ability to communicate with each other from all over the world. Americans have not fully embraced the idea of mutually agreeing about a topic through conversation alone because not every generation of people can see eye to eye. For example, the millennials and the Baby Boomers have two different perspectives on life because of their upbringing and many other factors. There is no peaceful mutual agreement between topics such as abortion, gay marriage or police brutality between the generations.
Life or Communication Some people believe that technology today is what is ruining people’s lives. They have so much nature and life around them and yet they do not look around. Most news heard from anywhere can be proven pointless, but communication is also a great source of learning about anything and everything. In these cases, the idea of living without pointless news, and the idea of actually gaining knowledge from any of it can co-exist but also is highly considered the opposite from Henry Thoreau’s views in his book Walden, to Heitman’s essay “If Thoreau Were to Move to Walden Today, Would He Bring the Internet? Maybe”.
Because of its commonality, popular culture both reflects and influences the people’s way of life; because it is linked to a specific time and place, popular culture is transitory, subject to change, and often and initiator of change. Since it affects every people’s life, it is a hard task for us, aspiring teachers to be the artisan of the Filipino youth for we are the one who will mould their character and through this powerful tool, we can be able to manage smoothly if we have enough knowledge about this. Popular culture and fictional entertainment media have an enormous influence on society. Whether in the genre of television sitcom or drama, or fictional stories in popular film, the entertainment media teach us something about ourselves as we map new meaning onto our own experience based on what we see and relate to; for good or for ill, it also teaches us a lot about others through fictional means (Tisdell, 2004). This statement tells us there are too many influences that contribute rearing a child’s mind.
Today many people believe that texting and other instant messaging programs are ruining the grammar and the knowledge level of the growing youth of this day and age. I believe that texting is not ruining our language and grammar because it has brought about advancements in technology and creativity, new words, and opening up new paths for communication. Many people believe that texting is a scourge of our generation but few believe that it help. Many new things have come to exist with the technological advances such as texting. some parents feel like the technology use is too important in a child 's life but I urge them to look at it differently.
Technology is vastly changing how people communicate and interact with each other that some fear it may be changing humanity for the worse. Whether technology users are interrelating with loved ones or acquaintances and bosses, many people, especially the Millennials, prefer an always-connected life in the digital world. Two authors explore the manifestations of new communication practices through technology. In “Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other,” Sherry Turkle describes how technology creates a paradox- easy human connections as well as easy disconnections. Ian Frazier explores the same social disengagements due to technology in “Dearly Disconnected.” Both authors tackle the issue of connectedness
People face bigger problems all around the world. Everyone tries to make the best out of their lives and be happy. When the English language is the most common language all around the world, there is no point of making it official in the United States. Most immigrants know that they need to learn English to be able to communicate with others and have an easy life. However, stopping immigrants from speaking their native language is too harsh.
