Should the press be completely free?
Definition of the press:-
The press is the way that focus on delivering news to the general public or to a specific public through papers The role of the press in the society:-
Newspapers are the important means of forming public opinion. They comment on current events and criticise or appreciate the conduct of the Government. It is through them that the public comes to know the problems that face the country. Thus they educate the public mind and enable the people to have their own opinions on matters of public importance. Newspapers keep us aware about the things going on in the world and specially the country. Moreover, newspapers increase r vocabulary and it makes us confident. They make ppl realize about the problems through the editor's column.
The uproar caused by the Prophet Mohammed caricatures has brought new light to the debate of the freedom of press that dates back to the days of the Renaissance. Nonetheless, press freedom is likely to be an inevitable feature in the society as the major role of the press in the society is to serve as informant as well as watchdog of most governments in the world. Therefore, the press should remain largely free especially in the area of publishing materials, the way of obtaining information, as well as the way of obtaining funds. However, the press can have a powerful effect on some areas of society (I changed the passive voice to active),so there should remain a certain degree of checks and balances so that the people who work for the press could be held responsible for their actions. As such, I would support this question and agree that the press should be given complete freedom within the framework of the law and the constitution.
The press should be given complete freedom in the way they obtain funds to prevent the press from possible manipulation by the parties who fund the operation of the press. These manipulations would include making reports in the press...
...“ Live to eat.......that's what I believe and practice”. Although most of you might be thinking that my topic seems to be much weaker as compared to the topic in opposition, “Eat to live”, as we go forward in this healthy debate, I will try to put across constructive points to prove “Live to Eat” is a better option.
Before I begin with the actual debate, let us look at the statistics related to eating habits of people in today's world, which gives a wrong picture of the section of the society which 'lives to eat'.
---Why we choose what weeat ?(Source-US FDA, 2008 )::
85% go for TASTE!! Still the number one reason! Out of the remaining, some look for convenient eating, others eat what is affordable. Some are influenced by heavy advertisement and some overeat under stress. Surprisingly, some people also eat unhealthy because they don’t know what is healthy.
---What is most liked by people in eating?
In this category, junk food takes the lead. Majority of the Americans are reported to eat more junk food they should, often 19% and sometimes even 36%.
---Who eats where and how often?
66% eat a meal in a restaurant at least once weekly. Fast food intake is highest in males (47%) vs. females (35%). Also 59% of 18-29 year olds...
...right? Eat to live, don’t live to eat. Simple enough. So why do I go to the park and half of the people I see are overweight or severely obese? Why are their kids fat? Why do my coworkers have fat rolls that hang off the back of their chairs? It’s a question I have asked myself over and over again. There have been many theories as to why people are fatter today than they were 100 years ago. Now you can choose to believe the BS about good calories and bad calories or that we are fatter because we don’t eat like our ancestors.
You can also choose to believe that calories don’t matter and we are fat because of the processed junk food we consume so much of. By taking a look at fat people, we can make the most probable assumption that they consume more calories than they expend. So, if you are in tune with what happens when energy intake is greater than expenditure, you know the excess energy is stored as body fat or contributes to LBM gain under certain situations.
Why is this important? A long time ago when we had to chase down our food and stab it with a sharp object, storing fat was essential for survival as it could be days or weeks before we might feast again. So after I expended all of that energy hunting down the kangaroo, you can bet your sweet loin cloth I am going to sit and stuff myself...
...DO WEEAT TO LIVE OR LIVE TO EAT???
Do weeat to live or live to eat? In my opinion all people eat to live. I have no doubt about the accuracy of that fact. Yet, I want to entertain the idea that it is possible to live to eat.
What do I mean when I say, “eat to live”? All humans need to eat in order to survive. Once you stop eating, you will die. To avoid this fate, you and I eat food and drink water. On the other hand, “living to eat”, is a concept that implies my eating is beyond and above my need to survive. My eating has nothing to do with my biological survival. In sum, “eat to live” is a biological understanding whereas, “live to eat” is psychological, social, and emotional.
Secondly, people who live to eat are numerous. Take a look around you next time you're at the food court in the mall. What do you see? More than likely you will see overweight men and women ordering double cheeseburgers and large fries from McDonald's or something of that nature. Sumo wrestlers are also a great example. In Japan, Sumo wrestlers who become champions are highly revered and respected by the people. Many young boys begin, very early in...
...Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, renowned gastronome once wrote in 1825, “Tell me what you eat, and I’ll tell you who you are.” This goes a long way in describing American culture as well as other cultures in the world. The kind of food weeat, the ingredients and their origin, how we prepare the ingredients to make a certain recipe, and ultimately how we consume and share it, is significant in showing our character, whowe are, and where we are from. In America our food shows us the evolution of our society’s character. This can be seen throughout history in the United States and it continues today.
In the beginning the food Americans consumed was based upon each immigrant’s nationality and its melding with other immigrant’s cooking. America was becoming more diverse and so was its food. American food sources were from all over the world. It also had its own unique foods native to the United States to choose from and use to invent American cuisine. In the early stages of the countries foundation the food exposed the future of American society.
The diversity of our country can be seen in the food Americans eat. We can see food customs often correlate with particular religious and spiritual rituals; births, weddings, and funeral ceremonies. For instance, Germany it is believed that a piece of cooked apple must be put into a newly born baby’s mouth...
...We as Americans love food and slowly but surely we have ended up with an abundant amount of food options as well as huge waistlines. But we have to argue, who is to blame for this? Should we be held responsible for our bodies and what we decide to consume or is the food industry responsible for luring us in? This, as well as many biological and environmental factors can contribute to the rise of weight problems and obesity. R.A Ames, author of "Fast Food Isn’t to Blame", argues that weight difficulties are the responsibility of the individual and we shouldn’t be blaming the fast food industry or other biological and environmental causes. Although individuals should be aware of the consequences of the food they choose to consume, fast food companies and a person's biological makeup are also partially to blame for the outcome of obesity.
Individuals have a choice on a daily basis on what they want to eat or drink. Granted, we don’t always make healthy choices, most of the least healthy ones are offered by fast food companies. These fast food companies offer us bigger sizes and huge portions compared to what we are supposed to eat. Most of us want something fast, cheap and good. That is why so many people turn to fast food, because it is convenient, fast, cheap and the taste appeals to many since it is loaded with fat, sugar and...
...The article discusses the long-term negative impact of watching television on the diet of American adults and provides advice on encouraging teenagers to eat healthy. This article is relevant to my project on proposing ways to combat obesity in Singapore as it highlights an important but possibly neglected causal factor for unhealthy eating habits – TV-watching. As young Singaporeans are exposed to television shows and media sources just as American teenagers are, findings on their negative influence should be seriously considered for my project.
As the article was published recently on Jan 30 2009, the information is up-to-date. The author uses interview excerpts from professionals – Frederick J. Zimmerman from the Child Health Institute and Kimberly M. Thompson from the Harvard School of Public Health. Both institutes are highly reputable and influential in American health matters. Thus, they have the responsibility of presenting accurate information to the public.
In the article, Zimmerman states that heavy TV viewing, especially of food advertising makes a difference to children’s diets. I agree, as advertisements have the cumulative effect of portraying unhealthy food as desirable and this undermines efforts to encourage a healthy lifestyle. This potentially explains the result in a recent study by a Canadian medical publication where physical fitness programmes in schools do not appear to combat obesity . Such advertising promotes food that goes...
...power. Here we will be able to see the profound acting and filming script that is used in this film.Citizen Kane stresses in the fact that money alone don't bring happiness and joy to it's owener, it just expresses his taste and preferences for materialistic thing that has no value in the spiritual side of anyones life. Charles Foster Kane collected an army of statues and antiques, but internally he felt like a lonely soldier in the desert searching to find out what makes life more tempting
As metioned in our book "Film"(page:265) :"Charles Foster Kane has two major goals in his life...He fails to attain that goal, too.". Kane was separated from his patents at the age of eight, this made him more emotional in his desicions, that's why some of his decisions didn't meet his true genuisness as we knew it. Dr. Dennison said in class that Charles Foster Kane was always searching for ideal mother love and ideal relationship that he has missed during his childhood. Kane tried to share love with a women that could fill his emotional side, he failed in his quest. Also Kane aimed of winning the love of the public by becoming the governor, not only he failed in that, but because of his arrogancy and ego he ruined his reputation.what Kane really aimed for is to live the innocent world of his youth, which is represented in the film by "rosebud".
It's sad when the story's major character fails to achieve any on...
...We can not live in it neither can welive without it.
Water is very important to us. Period. We will die without it, but unfortunately we also can not live with too much water. Our bodies are not designed to handle too much water. Our infrastructures also can not withhold massive amounts of water. Therefore we hope things like tsunamis, or hurricanes or typhoon or heavy snowfall or blizzard would not occur in an extreme manner.
We all know our resources are depleting and I am going to encourage you to find ways to safe water. We have too much water this year, that's true. At the moment, despite of too many chaotic problems happening in the Arabian countries, other countries are trying to stay alive fighting with the environment. Australia has so much water, flood upon floors. Brazil as well, also flood. Many parts of Europe are having so much snow this winter, and even in US, many states are just struggling to keep their home premises snow-free.
So why should we start to save water? and How?
Good old days.
In the good old days, people collect rain water. I remember my grandmother's garden had 3 huge vase like the picture on the right at the corner of the house where the pipes would hang out from the roof. When it rains the rainwater would flow down to these huge vase.
"Save money" my grandmother replied...
