Gaga versus Jobs

The media is not a yes or no question. It contains different types that mainly is an expression of thought through networking involving thousands of people to access it no matter how personal or private it is. Lady Gaga is revolutionary. She is a role model to thousands of boys and girls who started off by creating her stage name through radios. It was the freedom of speech that allowed her to become this phenomenon. On the other hand, Steve Jobs is the inventor of Apple: the Macbook, the Mac, the iPhone, and more. The current generation fundamentally associates themselves with spreading the word of politics, celebrities, and schoolwork on an everyday basis. Lady Gaga and Steve Jobs have their own fan base. One is typically on TMZ and the other is on Oprah. These are two completely different people, but similar in so many ways. Together, these two are invincible. They have a gift to share the world. It isn't a matter of competition if one or the other will be "googled" the most. It is the matter of complimenting each other to be omnipotent. People look for the best technology, Apple, to look up the latest gossip on Lady Gaga. This is what media is. It is the history of the technology, and one of the popular topics communicated about. Reading literacy is the ability to read. Therefore to be media literate, someone needs to know or have the ability to know the Steve Jobs, and Lady Gaga to every electronic situation.

Be the Best Version of You

LIFE is the choice you choose! It is the MISTAKES you don’t regret. It is the MISTAKES you make once. It is the MISTAKES you reverse to drive. You are your worst enemy. You have to see that LIFE can’t control you. YOU CONTROL IT. You’re going to face more battles in your future with enemies that will not allow you to be defeated. You have to see that you’re the only one that can fill the hole in your heart to prevent your mistakes. To prevent the life you don’t want. To change the life of being alone. You can't change for someone else even if you tried: not even if you wanted to. Oh, it certainly sounds sweet, easy, and nostalgic, but to do better, you have to BECOME BETTER! You’ll have friends that will judge you, belittle you, antagonize you, but you fight your battles! Your choice was your mistakes twice. Be the best version of you for you.

Why African Farmers Do Not Want GMOs

By Catherine Lumanauw, Truthin | News

AFRICA - GMOs does not breakthrough with exceeding credibility of beating world hunger in Africa due to food sovereignty.

To the corporate voices and their allies calling a promotion to not regulate the genetically modified crops (GMOs), there is world hunger and a decrease in food trade in Africa. Disabling the regulation of GMOs will end the transition of a developing country to a developed country by reducing the need of herbicides and pesticides. Earth is in perfect shape, and will not self-destruct in a mass extinction of homo sapiens.

“People should have more children to be cognizant of because there is not a rate of population escalating 100,000 births a day,” says a father of two children on his way to buy groceries at the nearest Whole Foods.

Since we only have one million people in the world, genetically modifying crops would not be necessary observing the amount of food equipped to distribute. A higher birth rate increases our death rate which means our population will decrease. As our population decreases, we need no more or less food to produce when Africa is still in world hunger. GMOs provide Vitamin A that 500,000 children who go blind every year in the developing world from a Vitamin-A deficiency.

My 1984 Reaction

The ending of 1984 easily took me by surprise. The general consensus on what everyone expected to happen was that the proles would eventually take over the government, considering that they consume the majority of the population. However, Winston was taken in my the Thought Police and tortured until he fell into the propaganda, brainwashed by Big Brother. Overall, I enjoyed Orwell's work because he took a concept so relevant to our society today and expanded upon it, creating a dystopian society where nothing was secret or safe from anyone else, even thoughts. The ending was a revolutionary idea, and although I could not have imagined it myself, Orwell fabricated a flawless, fascist government that could vaporize any ounce of rebellion within the system. In the world we live in today where media is integral in our society and technology is incorporated everywhere, privacy is shrinking away from the hands of our citizens. I think that this novel was an appropriate criticism of our government today, for it is taking advantage of these innovative ideas. For example, Snowden has confessed to the NSA's corruptive collection of data on private citizens. I don't think I would have ended the book any other way, because by leaving it without a distinct solution, Orwell forces us to take away from the book that once a government has complete control like this (rectifying the past to control the future), it is difficult to return to where we were. He forces us to realize that we have to step up and protect our rights in order to control our futures.

Reflection: Looking Back on Media Literacy

Senior year is a trying time. Everyone is exhausted. Everyone is ready to graduate. Everyone knows where they will be in life. There is only one thing I can say about this class; I have never been so passionate for an academic class. Media Literacy is the one topic I can certainly say I am good at. I have found something I can cling onto as something I can work into in the future as a career. I never knew what I wanted to be or who I wanted to be. As little as this class may seem for another student, I was genuinely affected. For the past four years, language arts classes are about vocabulary tests, how you write, and what kind of reading comprehension level you are. I would have worry about the text test on how “skilled” I am when statistically; all I am trying to do is do my best when it is typically not good enough. This was the year I could relax a little bit. I learned précis for when I write my first fashion article and how particular an article should be written in. Nevertheless, there have been negative flaws about the class. If this class is called “Media Literacy,” the future class AKS should base itself around more interactive activities that students enjoy their second semester of their senior year because everyone is restless. The curriculum was amazing and there is a possibility that many would cherish if we were in a different semester. Other than this, I am grateful for being in a class that was one of the first classes to test “Media Literacy.”
