Ã¢â¬Å"The biases the media has are bigger than conservative or liberal. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re about getting ratings, about making money, about doing stories that are easy to cover. Ã¢â¬ This may seem like a trite saying but it holds an enormous amount of truth. As Americans, we trust what reporters write in the newspaper and say on television and radio stations. We expect them to report the truth. However, current media outlets distort stories and certain news reports are getting too much attention.The most important stories are never seen on television, or read in the newspaper, or heard on the radio stations, while minor and trivial stories get the most news coverage. Hence celebrity engagements, divorce, entrance in rehabilitation centers and DUI cases are sold to the media. American people are then left without valuable information contrary to what story is getting 24-hour news coverage.Media bias is a Ã¢â¬Å"term used to describe prejudice in news and media reports, in which it is perceived as an imbalance or unfair presentation of facts or selective reporting of which events or facts are reported. Ã¢â¬ The main point here is when biases in media distorts certain stories, and other stories are spoken about entirely too much, it hurts democracy in America. The media, in that case, fails to focus on real issues that underlie the American culture, it has one-sided opinions, favoring a liberalÃ¢â¬â¢s point of view, and it caters to the majority, favoring the wealthy.Media biases causes the America people to become misinformed or too well informed, often due to the tendency of the media covering unimportant stories about celebrities, while overlooking issues like war, poverty, disease, violence, and education. The media content and news coverage rarely display the underlying issues that the American people face. Rather, it only acknowledges news that may appeal to the audience Ã¢â¬Å"because of its dramatic or entertainment value. Senator Barack Obama recogni zes the failure of the American media in updating America with real issues at Southern New Hampshire University Commencement: Ã¢â¬Å"We see it in a media culture that sensationalizes the trivial and trivializes the profound Ã¢â¬â in a 24-hour news network bonanza that never fails to keep us posted on how many days Paris Hilton will spend in jail but often fails to update us on the continuing genocide in Darfur or the recovery effort in New Orleans or the poverty that lagues too many American streetsÃ¢â¬ The media bonanza on Paris HiltonÃ¢â¬â¢s 14 day jail sentence was among one of most overplayed (unimportant) stories recently because TV news ran hundreds of hours of news coverage, while only showing 60-second sound bites of yet another death of an American soldier in combat in Iraq. Paris Hilton, a hotel heiress and the star in the media spotlight, was sentenced to a 14 day jail sentence at Century Regional Detention Centre in Lynwood, California on a traffic violation. The news media made the story seem so valuable and significant to report for so many hours.Some reporters believed that she deserved to be placed in jail because too many celebrities donÃ¢â¬â¢t receive the justifiable punishment they deserve like ordinary citizen because they are wealthy. Others believed that her jail sentence was too cruel just for a DUI charge, it was unfair and that she became the victim because of her prestige and as a famous figure in America. While Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and ABC were breaking in the entertainment news, debating whether her punishment was too cruel or justifiable, they failed to inform the American people about.When Hurricane Katrina unfolded in New Orleans, the media placed a lot of dramatic biases on the issue and missed the underlying point, misinforming the public. On August 23, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck down in New Orleans becoming one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit the United States. The media unfolded the events that those most effected in the black community, remained in New Orleans looting stores in search of food and water that werenÃ¢â¬â¢t available by any other means. On the other hand of the issue, white Americans were Ã¢â¬Å"wading through chest-deep waters finding soda and bread floating in the water from a grocery storeÃ¢â¬ .But while Paris Hilton was hogging the headlines the media failed to report that during that week the Washington Post reported Ã¢â¬Å"that about $854 million offered by allied countries worldwide after Hurricane Katrina. To date, the Post reports, only $40 million in foreign aid has been funneled to the Gulf Coast. The story goes this way: Apparently the Bush administration was stymied on what to do when offered this aid, since the U. S. is not usually in a position to need or accept such assistance. How, and from whom the $40 million was accepted is unclear, but what is eminently clear is that $800 million could have put the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast into f ast forward mode). Ã¢â¬ This goes to show that the media is filled with close-mindedness in which entertainment news surpasses Ã¢â¬Å"hard news every time. Ã¢â¬ 5 Instead of bringing American people together to work in effort to make children lives better, the economy better, the living welfare of families better, the media devours our interest to support a difference by resembling soap operas and commercial television shows. Dateline is the same as ER or Friends.They all have to compete for prime time audiences. CBS and 48 Hours is the same as Everybody Loves Raymond. Notice how importance never enters into the equation. Notice how there isn't even a pretense to public interest. TV Ã¢â¬ newsÃ¢â¬ has become celebrity trials and runaway brides, and sex Ã¢â¬â while foreign bureaus are closing and news budgets are shrinking and we become a people ever more thoroughly entertained than informed, even as we live through the most dangerous and portentous days in recent history . The media also has the tendency to uphold one-sided opinions, favoring liberals, whereas the mainstream media holds liberal biases.Liberals in a political sense relate to ideas and theories of government in which they advocate individual liberty, for example, race, abortion, affirmative action, homelessness, and gay rights. They use liberal principles and ideas that influence their news coverage and or selection of stories. Liberal biases undermine the American value. In the controversial book, Ã¢â¬Å"Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distorts the News,Ã¢â¬ Bernard Goldberg said Ã¢â¬Å"journalist doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t see their views as liberal but merely reasonable and civilized. Ã¢â¬ In contrast, the media, for the most part, is helpful in feeding the mass with stories that reflect America.In fact, America has never been provided with a broad arrangement and providers of news. However, government cannot solve the problems of media bias because part of the media bias is in part of political [government] decadence. The government embraces liberal views! The media only identifies problems for the government to solve, such as poverty, disease, and violence. To solve the problem of media bias, educational groups are needed to educate people about wanting to understand the truth and demand a balance in media coverage through advocacy and petitioning.

Ã¢â¬ ¢ What is discrimination? How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping? Discrimination is the denial of oppurtunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary reasons (Schaefer, 2012). Discrimination is different from prejudice and stereotyping because discrimination is an action whereas prejudice is a belief or attitude and stereotyping is a generalization about a group of individuals (Schaefer, 2012). Both prejudice and stereotyping are ways of thinking about and classifying people into groups based on a belief or dislike of those individuals. Discrimination takes it a step further and puts those beliefs and attitudes into action by denying these groups of certain oppurtunities because of the prejudice and stereotyping. Ã¢â¬ ¢ What are the causes of discrimination? Discrimination comes in many forms such as race, gender, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, and even disabilities. Discrimination is a learned behavior in which I believe children hear negative remarks about a group of people or individual from their parents or other influential persons and then make those judgements based upon what they grew up hearing about these individuals (Schaefer, 2012). Discrimination can also be caused from possible bad experiences with one individual that may cause another individual to now have negative feelings about this particular person because of race, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. Another cause of discrimination is institutional discrimination, which is the denial of oppurtunites and equal rights to individuals and groups that results from the normal operations of a society (Schaefer, 2012). Ã¢â¬ ¢ How is discrimination faced by one identity group (race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability) the same as discrimination faced by another? How are they different? Facing discrimination is never an easy task to do. Having to face discrimination is difficult and usually the minority gets the brut force of the discrimination. The only way facing discrimination could be the same is that either group has to endure the prejudice for the actions and beliefs in which they are being discriminated about. The difference is that one identity group may receive harsher discrimination for their identity group. Race, gender, and disability may get hit harder when it comes to jobs and other oppurtunities than would ethnicity, religious groups, and sexual orientation. Certain groups have been discriminated even harsher than others and this can lead to hate crimes, such as race. Either way discrimination is a negative action and the more we can do to prevent it, the better it will be for our future.

In contrast to high school, missing a class in college can often feel like no big deal. Its rare for college professors to take attendance, and if youre only one student out of hundreds in a large lecture hall, you might feel like no one noticed your absence. So what -- if anything -- do you need to do if you miss class in college? Contact Your Professor Consider emailing or calling the professor.Ã You dont always have to let your professor know if you missed class, but you should at least think carefully about whether or not you need to say something. If you missed one relatively uneventful lecture in a class with hundreds of people, you might not need to say something. But if you missed a small seminar class, definitely touch base with your professor. A quick message apologizing for missing class because you had the flu, for instance, should work. Similarly, if you missed a major exam or a deadline for turning in an assignment, youll need to touch base with your professor as soon as possible. Note: If you do miss class, dont mention why if your reason was ridiculous (I was still recovering from my fraternity party this weekend!) and dont ask if you missed anything important. Of course,Ã you missed important things, and implying otherwise will just insult your professor. Talk to Classmates Check in with your classmates about what material you missed.Ã Dont assume you know what happened in class, regardless of how previous class sessions have gone. For all you know, your professor mentioned that the midterm has been moved up by a week, and your friends wont remember to tell you this key detail until (and unless) you ask. Perhaps people were assigned small study groups and you need to know which one you now belong to. Perhaps a comment was made about some material that will be covered on an upcoming exam. Perhaps the professor announced a change in office hours or when the final exam will take place. Knowing what content was scheduled to be covered in class is not the same as knowing what actually happened. Keep Your Professor in the Loop Let your professor know if you expect to miss class again sometime soon.Ã If, for example, you have a family emergency to deal with, let your professor know whats going on. You dont need to go into too much detail, but you can (and should) mention the reason for your absence. Letting your professor know that a family member passed away and that youll be gone the rest of the week to travel home for the funeral is a smart and respectful message to send along. If youre in a small class or lecture, your professor might plan their class activities differently knowing that one (or more) students will be absent on a certain day. Additionally, if you have something going on that requires more than an absence or two, youll want to let your professor (and dean of students) know in case you start to fall behind on your coursework. Letting your professor know why youre missing class so much can help you work together to find a solution; leaving a professor out of the loop about your class abse nces will only further complicate your situation. If you do miss class, just be smart about communicating when necessary and setting yourself up for a successful rest of the semester as much as possible.

A harrowing, poignant account of caring for not only one, but two AlzheimerÃ¢â¬â¢s patients, Slow Dancing with a Stanger Lost and Found in the Age of AlzheimerÃ¢â¬â¢s is a first hand experience with AlzheimerÃ¢â¬â¢s disease that leaves the reader moved, intrigued, and a little worried about what is to come with the aging process. The book is not an easy read as it gives a very unromantic summation of being a caretaker to a person with AlzheimerÃ¢â¬â¢s disease. Meryl Cromer, the author and caretaker in the novel, was a very ambitious woman for her time. She had a career in television and spent more than 30 years in broadcast journalism. She married her husband, Harvey Gralnick, in 1978. Both of their careers were flourishing; however, their marriage was not.Ã¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦He would crash his car leading Cromer to disconnect his car battery, urinate in public, and ultimately lose his job. In contrast, Gralnick, in his heyday, was a prominent physician focusing in oncology and hematology at the National Institute of Health. He is known on an international scale for his groundbreaking research in leukemia. As the disease progressed, He spent three months degeneration was fast. He became increasingly forgetful and was soon unable to do basic tasks for himself. Harvey was incontinent, unable to bathe himself, unable to feed himself, and sometimes even abusive. These symptoms are very common for those with AlzheimerÃ¢â¬â¢s disease many patients also experience lack of sleep (Whitbourne, 2011, p. 103). He even went as far as to knock a few of MerylÃ¢â¬â¢s teeth out. It was therefore up to Meryl to meet these needs in the book, which is quite a tall order in terms of caregiving. This demand caused her social and work life that was once vibrant and bustling to diminish to nearly nothing. She also had to cater to her husbandÃ¢â¬â¢s outburst in addition to caring for his daily needs. She would set up mirrors in the house in order to see when he was coming so that she would not be taken by surprise. The caregiver burden, a term used to define the stress that caregivers endure, is very evident in MerylÃ¢â¬â¢s case (Whitbourne, 2011, p.

Private agreements are essential for the disruption of private interest groups domestically. They provide collaboration, direct access to foreign markets and the right economic incentive. In October 2013 Duke Energy and ENN group proposed a private agreement to invest in renewable energy by developing solar farms within China. They have agreed to join together instead of competing, there is evidence international cooperation is increasing competitively. Other groups have proposed the exchange of carbon capture and storage information with the knowledge of safe and efficient nuclear plant management. This information being a national security issue has to be approved by the US government it provides leverage to isolate and disrupt domestic interest groups. Internationally, the United States can provide channels to broker thee agreements. More directly the U.S should attempt to collaborate directly with china in the development of cleaner carbon technologies. The best area for collaboration is the building of a carbon capture and storage system. On a smaller scale models this technology has managed to capture up to 90% of carbon dioxide emissions from coal powered plants. The CO2 is collected, transported and buried in used oil fields.
