The Long And Tall Tales Of Television Today

It’s such a controversial topic today, in order to get my own conclusion, I will exam the arguments and studies of two papers: one is “The Function of Television: Life Without the Big Box” by Charles Winick who supports the functions of television; the other is “Some Hazards of Growing Up in a Television Environment” by Jerome L. Singer and Dorothy G. Singer who does not agree that TV should be viewed as much as today and it has already became a society problem. I agree with ...

It’s such a controversial topic today, in order to get my own conclusion, I will exam the arguments and studies of two papers: one is “The Function of Television: Life Without the Big Box” by Charles Winick who supports the functions of television; the other is “Some Hazards of Growing Up in a Television Environment” by Jerome L. Singer and Dorothy G. Singer who does not agree that TV should be viewed as much as today and it has already became a society problem. I agree with the view of Singers, in addition, I think this is the problem that should be solved urgently.

Charles Winick considers that most important for children is that they can learn from TV. “The children of today do not need to learn to read as early or to develop an imagination. All their fairy tales, bedtime stories and cartoons are shown in living color on TV”. He shows a great children program “Sesame Street” as an example. “ It has led to the production of a television program in which the contents are closely based upon knowledge of what young children need to know and about their manner of learning…it’s a highly effective educational program which has successfully taught basic skills to children from a range of very different home backgrounds.” In Singers’ paper, they argue that although the average child spends a great deal of time watching television, they learn very little from the medium.

A common model is the ‘hyperdermic syringe model’. According to this model, the media had the power to change attitudes and behaviour for the ‘pro-social’ as well as the ‘anti-social’ influence. Empirical research has soon revealed the shortcomings of the hyperdermic syringe model and it was recognized that the effectiveness of the media in getting its message across depended on the personal influence affecting the perceptions of audience members. An alternative of this was the development of the ‘two-step flow’ which was produced by Katz and Lazarfelo. They believe the way the media is interpreted by audiences is usually involved by a process of negotiation with other members of the audience. They believed instead of passively absorbing media output, a discussion is held between family members, friends and even strangers about the programmes seen on T.V. In this model, opinion leaders emerge to help interpret the message we are being sent. They believed the stimulus relationship between media and audiences was replaced by the complexity of human meaning and personal relationships. Finally the third alternative model, which rejected both the hyperdermic syringe model and the two-step, flow model, was the ‘long-term’ effect model. This model suggests that media may influence us in many ways that are hard to measure and have long term effects on our attitudes, creating new ideas or reinforcing our original ones rather than changing opinions we already have.

Cumberbatch carried out a study where he analysed all programmes broadcasted on all four channels, in four separate weeks between May and September 1986. The primary unit for counting was the violent act; he quoted “a coherent uninterrupted sequence of actions involving the same agents in the same role”. Cumberbatch found that 30% of programmes contained some violence. The overall frequency was 1.14 violent acts per programme, 1.68 acts per hour, where each act lasted approximately 25 seconds and so therefore occupying just over 1% of T.V time. However he claimed that if boxing and wrestling were excluded, the average duration would be 13 seconds and if verbal threats were to be included than the average frequency would rise to 1.96 acts per hour. He found that most violence was shown in spy, fantasy, war detective, crime and thriller programmes, and less violence on quiz shows and chat shows plus non-contact sports. However he claimed that injuries from violent acts were rare. 26% of occasions, violence resulted in death but 61% no injuries were shown as the victims simply showed pain or were shocked.

 

The Hot And Cold Celebrities Of TV

Celebrities, for the most part, stand the test of time. Once they become stars, they remain stars until the day they die and even beyond. But there is another type of celebrity. This kind is known as the "fleeting celebrity". They are said to have their "15 minutes of fame", which was a phrase coined by the late Andy Warhol. Our culture has seen a number of these 15 minute wonders. We're going to take a look at just a few of them here.

Celebrities, for the most part, stand the test of time. Once they become stars, they remain stars until the day they die and even beyond. But there is another type of celebrity. This kind is known as the "fleeting celebrity". They are said to have their "15 minutes of fame", which was a phrase coined by the late Andy Warhol. Our culture has seen a number of these 15 minute wonders. We're going to take a look at just a few of them here.

Why don't we start off with two for the price of one? Remember quite a few years ago when a 16 year old girl by the name of Amy Fisher had an affair with a guy by the name of Joey Buttafuco? Amy ended up shooting the guy's wife in the head and ended up going to prison for 6 years. Today, nobody gives her or Joey a second thought.

Then of course there was Monica Lewinsky who had sex with President Bill Clinton. Of course Clinton's celebrity status has not diminished since, but Lewinsky has so fallen off the radar map that today nobody even knows where this woman is or what she's doing.

Then there was the big scandal in the late 80s involving Jim Bakker, who began the Praise The Lord Ministry in Fort Hill, South Carolina in 1974. A big sex scandal and some shady business dealings involving the PTL landed Bakker in prison for 45 years. Most people today don't even give him a second thought.

In the world of music, a guy by the name of Carl Douglas gave us the totally ridiculous song "Kung Fu Fighting". While Douglas may have been yesterday's news after that song mercifully fell off the charts, the song itself has been in more Kung Fu movies than you can possibly imagine.

And then of course there was the novelty song of the 90s, "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred. These bald headed brothers probably grew hair after this total embarrassment of a song. Neither one of them has been heard from since and the song only gets played as a parody.

Thousands if the world’s sexiest women have tattoos? Tattoos have been showing up everywhere...on movie stars, super models, sports stars, rock stars, as well as thousands of the world’s sexiest women.

Here is a fascinating glimpse of 10 world famous celebrities and their fabulous collection of body art. Check out more knockout photos and descriptions at: http://www.temporarytattoofactory.com

NICOLE RICHIE is known for her tattooed ballerina shoes that were inspired by a song her dad, Lionel Richie, wrote for her. She also has seveal unique designs which include wings on her back, “Virgin” on her inner wrist and a gorgeous chain 7 cross on her ankle that look like jewelry.

VICTORIA BECKHAM, formerly “Posh Spice” of the Spice Girls,is most famous for her husband David’s initials on her inner wrist and the 5 stars on her lower back to signify family which includes her husband and 3 children. Also interesting is the Hebrew script on her upper back.

DREW BARRYMORE has been acquiring her collection of “free spirit” tattoos for over a decade. She is known for the adorable butterfly under her belly button, the moon & star on her foot and a unique angel adorning her gorgeous lower back.

 

Reality Bites Of Television

Everyone loves to reminisce about the “good old days:” the movies and shows we watched, the things we did. We tell the younger generations about our all-time favorite TV shows and films and scoff when they don’t have a clue what we’re talking about. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could play them a few episodes of that old-time show or cherished movie? Now, with Rare TV, you have the chance to!

Everyone loves to reminisce about the “good old days:” the movies and shows we watched, the things we did. We tell the younger generations about our all-time favorite TV shows and films and scoff when they don’t have a clue what we’re talking about. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could play them a few episodes of that old-time show or cherished movie? Now, with Rare TV, you have the chance to!

Rare TV specializes in finding and reproducing rare television shows, films, games, and music. With hundreds of DVDs already restored and in stock, there’s no doubt that Rare TV will continue to increase its inventory. Currently, the company has music DVDs, pilot episode DVDs, full television season DVDs, and just about any movie you can think of on DVD.

The shocking truth is that many actors are struggling and finding it difficult to pay their rent let alone live up to the 'stereo typical' fantasy lifestyle that most people perceive. Acting is a very hard game to master and if your sole purpose is to come into this profession just for the money then I urge you to think again because unless you have a true passion for this craft, you may find yourself banging your head against a brick wall waiting for the next part to arrive that will pay you the mega dollars that you've been yearning for.

Simply, how much any particular actor does make will be determined by many factors, such as: what level the play or film is considered to be, how many roles they have already been in, and for stage acting, the length of time spent in a said role.

In the first instance, the level of the play is decided by the professional quality of the said theater. For instance, everyone knows of Broadway, it’s the first thing that comes to mind when a person thinks about theatre and making it big on stage. This is probably the highest level where the actor would make the most money. Stepping down from there is off-Broadway, followed by off-off Broadway. Though all are professional theaters, with each progressive step down, is a bet that the salary will decrease. In addition to theatre, film also has levels, from television stars, to television movie stars, to the big screen and again each progressive step will be followed by a different actors salary.

Television or what they call “boob tube” evolved in the early 1930’s. There has been a lot of development as the years passed. Currently the most talked about when it comes to televisions are the so called “Plasma TV”.

Now, what exactly is a Plasma TV? Maybe some of you would just say that it is a wide slim TV that you can hang around in your room where you want it or when you want it. Now, the bottom line is this, Plasma TV is not just your ordinary TV. The display that you will actually see is made up of thousand cells. These cells are glass compartments infused with a certain gas called “neon-xenon gas”. This gas is now plasma suspended.

So what now is plasma? Plasma is a matter that contains number of particles that are electrically charged. When the neon –xenon gases are then electrically charged, it will give phosphors of different colors, such as red, blue and green. These colored elements are the pixels that are contained in the Plasma TV.
