Media is communication connectivity as top news sources. Mass media gains into the vast world of society with news and commentary. The media use to be like newspaper, magazines, billboards, TV or radio broadcasts to catch the visuals of promotional sources. Media Literacy is a person who can have the ability to read and write.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA—Following a host of conflicting reports in the wake of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 last Saturday, representatives from the Kuala Lumpur–based carrier acknowledged they had widened their investigation into the vanished Boeing 777 aircraft today to encompass not only the possibilities of mechanical failure, pilot error, terrorist activity, or a botched hijacking, but also the overarching scope of space, time, and humankind’s place in the universe.

The airline, now gone missing about numerous amount of days of searching for the passenger jet carrying 239 passengers and crew, has come under fire for its perceived mishandling of the investigation, whose confusing and contradictory reports have failed to provide definitive answers on everything from how long the missing plane remained aloft after losing contact with air traffic controllers, to whether the flight made a radical alteration in its heading, to the very dimensions of space-time and the nature of reality, and what exactly it is that brought us into existence and imbued us with this thing we call life.

Additionally, the airline confirmed it had expanded its active search area to include a several-hundred-square-mile zone in the Indian Ocean as well as each of the seven or 22 additional spatial dimensions posited by string theory.

“We continue to do everything in our power and explore every possible lead—both Cartesian and phenomenological—to locate the aircraft as quickly as possible,” said Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, who went on to say that authorities were still actively seeking tips from anyone claiming knowledge related either to the flight, or to the mechanisms by which consciousness arises, or to the question of why anything physical and finite exists instead of nothing at all. “At this stage, we can’t rule anything out: not crew interference with the transponders, not a catastrophic electrical failure, not the emergence of a complex topological feature of space-time such as an Einstein-Rosen bridge that could have deposited the flight at any location in the universe or a different time period altogether, nothing.”

“Could a parallel universe have immediately swelled up from random cosmological fluctuation according to the multiverse theory and swallowed the flight into its folds, or could ice have built up on an airspeed sensor? Those are both options we are currently considering,” Rahman added. “Everything’s on the table. That is, insofar as anything exists at all, which we’re also looking into.”

In addition, we can navigate missing IPhones of us individual users for about less than 5 hours, yet we cannot radar this huge model plane for about 2 weeks? Aren't the lives of the those passengers so much more important than a missing phone? According to global airlines, streaming data from the flight recorders. However, the post states that cost and regulators or airlines adopted the advanced technology.

“The bottom line is that we have a sophisticated aircraft fresh off a safety inspection with no prior incident of malfunction, flying in good weather at a cruising altitude,” Rahman continued. “Why didn’t the pilot send a distress signal? Why aren’t we finding a debris path? What are we to make of the contradictory radar information? Where did the universe begin and can it be said to have a limit or an edge? What is mankind’s role in it? Is there a God? If so, what is God’s nature?”-- “It’s too early to answer these questions right now, but I can assure you that Malaysia Airlines will get to the bottom of it,” Rahman added. “Our top people are on it right now.”

My Response of 1984...

My idea of "1984" from George Orwell was that it is completely brainwashing. The power of fear can control the mind of humanity is absurd. Also, he control of not able to love their own family and being tattle-tailed by their own child(ren) like it's unable to believe. I was really shocked about the twist at the end when it turns out O'Brien, the controller of Ministry of Love, was the one who created this fear of Goldstein and the non-sense about "Brotherhood" organization. It's like this made-up organization was to lure people into the trap and become hooked. Also, how Mr.Charrington kept quiet and being the head of the thought-police. I don't really like novels ending with a huge twist that may become our future. In most American movies, we are filled with happy endings not like the French movies, most endings are ended in a creepy twist. If were to be the author, I would've questioned the proles to be envious of the party and overthrow what good stuff that has been hidden and not be like loathing around like hippies. Once that action grabs the attention of the proles crowd, there is possibility that may be overthrown after Smith has been captured (like Evey vs. V scene being captured), and leave it for the reader to decide. Instead of giving an unreasonable idea how scrambled his mind turn out because of O'brien. If you think about it, how could he possibly continue writing in his diary after being sent to Room 101, and still explicitly say he loves BIG BROTHER. The message novel is if you were to doublethink, don't trust you're surroundings and be cautious since being under so many surveillances system.

Revision at the End

The power of media and the understanding with media literacy makes the future path a broad world. A wide range of controversy that is effective and engaging to our critical thinking to understand the complex messages. Well, what are coming along with me to my path of success are my memories spending time in class. Every morning at 7:10 am, listening to everyday announcement and start a new planning or become a zombie in class. Well, it was one of a few or other every other week. This class of 2014 Language Arts is based on electronic device going to the computer lab or use laptops to evaluate media with relevant news advertisements, social media, or articles or news, and analyzing different structures used in media such as, précis, satire, advertisement, and kinetic typography and many more. Previous Language Arts class only study vocabulary, grammar identifier structure, and read many requirement books like Mice of Men, The Great Gatsby, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and many more. I really enjoyed being in class learning the different new happening and even at this moment some type of media is happening. One change for me to suggest is really make it more of a literature class than a computer class. I think we didn't analyze enough big books of literature to practice of forming an accurate précis, so I can fully be sure the structure of writing format to bring along to college turning in, since that’s how it is done with the courses there. Now not everything will be remembered, but a good handful memory is enough to along to my journey for life, because I have the end of year project of a revision what I really learned in high school. The Senior Legacy of video that will reflect my past growing up becoming today and plans going to happen in the future. “Who controls the present controls the past. Who controls the future controls the present.”-revision of Aimee’s thought of 1984.
