The critics denied cinema as an art form being unable to sustain the live performance. Despite the attempts to attract the viewers by inviting theater actors to star in the first movies, the interest to motion pictures did not rise. Theater long remained the primary form of art where staging was valued and appreciated by the audience and critics. The next criterion which cinema also failed to meet was the ability to freely express self in realism (Johns 80). The hostile audience blamed cinema for incapability of communicating strong emotions to build connections with the viewers.
This contribution obtained long after the initial distribution of movies in theaters and television. Pirates do not pay wages or taxes and they do not give benefits to the workers. Therefore, how is it possible for all these workers obtained those benefits when the viewer preferred to watch the film at pirate sites rather than in more legal ways. Conversely, actors and directors may not experience the impact since they may not be getting a considerable portion of back-end money (Strauss, 2013). For them, piracy is just another way of upping up their visibility where recognition of their work, their name, and their face is predominant.
The growing menace of counterfeit products has become a serious problem for consumers and producers, so the country’s law enforcement agencies must acquire the ability to investigate this white-collar crime. Laws do exist to curb this menace, but the law enforcement agencies do not have adequate knowledge to distinguish between the fake and genuine products. The proliferation of fake and modified goods is not only hurting the consumers and genuine producers of goods, the menace is also adversely affecting the national economy, government revenues and thereby public-sector sociology-economic
Popular mass media has indeed put TV shows and video games under negative light. This has spread from person to person, eventually reaching the point were any amount time spent on these activities is considered wasted at best, if not damaging to the person involved in them. The increase in the complexity of popular culture witnessed throughout the previous decades stands as proof to the fact that popular culture does not dumb down the people who choose to involve themselves with it. “Despite claims to the contrary, popular culture has grown increasingly complex over the past thirty years. Complexity, in this case, is defined as the amount of cognitive work the audience is asked to perform in order to comprehend the work in question.
Case Question 1: Most aspects of foreign culture, like languages, religion, gender roles, and problem solving strategies, are hard for a casual observer to understand.

There were fewer media moguls controlling the movie scene, and more independent producers and writers creating controversial topics (sex, politics, drugs) for the youth market. “To maintain their profit, studios made fewer and lavish pictures and charged theaters more to show them,” said Plummer (2010). The 1960’s laid the foundation for future movie making. The movie industry found that if movie makers made sequels to popular movies that the audience like and familiar with, then they would have to do less marketing and advertising for the sequels. Forward-thinking and controversial movie topics gave the movie industry hope for the

For instance, from the article “The effects of minimum wage” by David Neumark states that employers will try to keep away from low-skilled workers if the wage were to increase because it would cause them to be wasting money to train them; especially for students and high school graduates who are in absence of any work experience. With minimum wage increasing for the past couple of years it makes it difficult on employers who run small businesses to hire more new workers because they too are also citizens that have to pay their taxes and extra just to keep their business up and running. Such as the author Gina Kim who wrote the article “Minimum wage: helpful or harmful for small businesses” states that 85% of small businesses pay workers a bit more than the minimum to keep their workers interested in the job and they have to make profits out of their business to keep it on track. These businesses cannot innovate if the wage increases because then the labor market will pick up the prices on materials as well creating more of a problem for small business owners to keeping their company open for as long as possible and their solution would be to not hire a lot of employees. This pretty much explains the reasoning about how it will be troublesome for new fresh workers trying to just gain experience and get hard earned
People work in different positions, at different places with different working environment. There are such that work all day and night, twenty-four-seven just to earn some money in order to support their families. On the other side some people have much more money than needed to have more than sufficient life, and it seems like those people do not put as much effort as the poor ones to earn their incomes. From this inequality mainly comes the urge for criminal activity - people still, kill, rape which cause great hardship and sorrow to a large number of people in society. In his article sir Jeffrey H. Reiman show us who are these people and in what way justice is being done.
An example of this is when Walter used the insurance money to make an unauthorized transaction for a liquor license. In life today troubles of the same nature would be cyber crimes and stolen identities, these crimes affect our world and everyday living. Finally, poverty is affecting thousands of people in the United States; this impact is changing the quality of life for families as noted in the play A Raisin in the Sun.
