Media is Helpful


Media is helpful. It is helpful because it can keep you updated on current events happening locally or internationally. Media could also help by letting us know what the government might have changed and new laws. Media allows us to follow and keep track of our favorite actors, shows, movies, and sports. Media can also help with education on research projects. All you have to do is go on google look up anything you’re searching for and it will show you great information to help you. Media can help you network if you have a business you can make a website, put your number on line, and connect to other businesses that can help you.

Social Media can help you connect with love ones that you would have never thought you would talk to again. Media can also help you clear your mind and put you in a better mood. Like, Pandora allows you to listen to music you may like or help you discover other music or artist that you’ve never heard of. It is a great form of entertainment. Media can help people get their lives together or safe someone else life. Media can help by commercials about free rehab centers, shows helping about dieting, and even inspiration shows that could change your life. And programs about adopting a child in need of help from a family or finding out if you can help natural disaster survivors in need. Media can help raise money for organizations you wouldn’t hear about if media wasn’t help promoting them.

I think it means to be Media literate is to use media the right way. Being media literate means you use media the way it is meant to be used. You shouldn’t abuse or use media inappropriately. It can also mean you keep up with the new ways media is being used. Joining all the websites and knowing how to use them correctly. Media is a very helpful tool for any aspect of life.


In April 10,1912 the world’s largest ship ever known to mankind, at that time, was setting sea from Southampton, England scheduled to arrive in New York. Nearly 2,240 souls were on that ship. The RMS Titanic was known as the “unsinkable ship” and unsinkable it was. Safely arriving at its determined destination was a trivial challenge for this massive vessel but a challenge nonetheless. The Titanic only had half the required number of lifeboats to fit all their passengers. One of the challenges they faced was enormous iceberg that threatened to sink the ship. Miraculously the ship missed the iceberg and paved the way for technological advances for other ships. The most important technological advance that is was the first steamed powered ship with turbines making them faster than the competition and easier to navigate. This was a giant leap forward in marine engineering in the early 20th century.

The ship was separated into classes of wealth. It was a very elegant ship with nothing but the best silks and linens to the silverware. They had magnificent paintings on the walls of every room and carried precious cargo worth millions. Today the ships still runs with the same memorable atmosphere as it did back then with even more passengers. This unsinkable ship is still proving itself today by carrying people back and forth to their destinations safely. When the ship reached 10 years old the White Star Lines retired the ship and transformed it into a museum for other to experience the ship. People are still in awe of its gorgeous decor and how it still give off an magical effect.

And it is hard to believe the amount of lives that could have been lost if the ship was to crash into that cavernous iceberg. Just the thought of it is a horrific idea. Fortunately, the lookout men spotted the iceberg in enough time to avoid it. Because if they the ship wouldn't have time to avoid it thousands of innocent passengers would have died in a very fatal situation.Finally, when it arrived in New York there was a tremendous celebration. Everyone was amazed and ecstatic the ship made it back safely from its long tedious journey.

This ship will live on for many years preserved in the museum for many more years to come. Some of its passengers still remember the day the set foot onto its hallways. They remember the fear and excitement running through their minds while on board. Also, some of the passengers come to the museum to give speeches about how amazing it was to be on the ship all the activities they had place. Meeting all types of people from different walks of life all on this voyage exchanging stories. The RMS Titanic will always be the most memorable ships humanity has ever created the first unsinkable ship to ever ride the waves of the ocean. The museum captures its beauty to the fullest and makes you feel like you were actually there when it first opened its sails.

Somebody's Watching Me

The perfect theme song for 1984 by George Orwell is Somebody’s Watching Me by Rockwell. Winston was constantly being watched by big brother. There were telescreens that watched and heard everything you said and did. Even when you think you’re not being watched there are mini microphones in places you can’t see. Also, there were children trained to spy on people and can convict you of any crime they feel fit to. A thought crime was the worst thing you can be convicted of because that means you are thinking against the government and big brother. If you are convicted of a thought crime you get vaporized, erased out from society. Similarly to other dystopian societies, the citizens have little to no freedom and are under the constant supervision of the government. In conclusion, this book relates to the song because the speaker has an undying and uneasy feeling that throughout the day he is being watched. The protagonist, Winston, feels the exact same emotion. Everybody’s watching me is the best theme song for 1984 because it shows how privacy doesn’t exist physically or mentally. Winston is stuck in a society where he can’t escape from himself.

Somebody's Watching Me By Rockwell

I'm just an average man with an average life
I work from nine to five, hey, hell, I pay the price
All I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I'm in the twilight zone

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I Have No Privacy
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell Mi Is It Just A Dream

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone, I'm trying to avoid
But can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid

When I'm in the shower I'm afraid to wash my hair
'Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing there
People say I'm crazy, just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much
That's why

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I Have No Privacy
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's Playin' Trics On Me

I don't know anymore
Are the neighbors watching me
Well is the mailman watching me
And I don't feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who's watching me now--- (BOOO!) -The IRS?

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I Have No Privacy
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell Me Is It Just A Dream

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I Have No Privacy
I always feel like somebody's watching me
I always feel like somebody's watching me

I always feel like somebody's watching me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell Me This Can't Be

I always feel like somebody's watching me
I always feel like somebody's watching me
I always feel like somebody's watching me

Budweiser’s Puppy Love commercial

In the Budweiser’s commercial “Puppy Love (2014) the puppy keeps running away from its owner to his new best friend that’s a horse. This is supported by the multiple times the puppy has run away and also when the horses started running after him when the puppy was in the car driving way. The commercial’s purpose is to show the “Bud” the puppy is man’s best friend in this case the horses best friend like beer is man’s best friend. This commercial is speaking to men that are in their 30’s, animal lovers, and hard workers.

Media Literacy has affected my life

In media literacy I’ve learned how to better myself as a writer by making my essays more personal. I learned how society views certain issues and controversial subjects. We discussed how certain events happening in the world now will affect us in the future or even affect our children’s future. We've read books that were written in the past that are foretelling events that are partial happening in this century.

I’m taking away from this class personal values and morals that I will need in the real world to succeed. This class has really prepared my mind for college and all the critical thinking I will have to endure. Media literacy has taught me that the most obvious meaning isn't always what the author is trying to portray to you. You have to annotate what you're reading to establish the true meaning. What I'm taking from this class is that society isn't always what you see its what you don't see that affects your life more and how you need to have to have an understanding of everything so you're not ignorant.

This language arts class differs from other because it makes you actually analyze what you are reading. While other language art classes are reading fictional books from the 1800’s we are reading news articles, Ted talks, and documentaries. Media literacy gives us a hint of how it will be when we attend college. Other language arts class talk about fictional stories that we can't relate to our lives. Other language art classes aren’t as challenging as media literacy is because you have to dissect what you are reading to make sure you have an understanding. Your actually going to remember what you learn in this class because it influences your life in a positive and meaningful way.

What I think should be done differently is to start the class slower not to jump into a whole bunch of assignments as soon as we start. Also, everything shouldn't have to be done online because not every student has the resources to complete them in a timely manner. Other than that I enjoyed the class and our many entertaining discussions.
