Printing Press

...The Printing Press Introduction: The Advancement The advancement in question is the printing press, a technological innovation that profoundly altered human culture. It may be argued, in fact, that this advancement revolutionized humanity and society in a manner rivaled only by the modern advent of the Internet. Moreover, as will be discussed, these were impacts with both varied and far-reaching consequences: “Paper and printing paved the way for religious reformation and made possible popular education” (Thompson, 1978, p. 167). It is then all the more astonishing that such consequences could arise from so simple a mechanism, or that its development would be realized as late as the 15th century. What is generally considered the original version of the modern printing press is a machine consisting of several key components. A long wooden table provides the surface for setting out the paper and ink, and these are then placed under the upright frame of the press itself. Before this step, however, every stage requires exacting work. First, the type is needed, which are metal blocks with raised letters, numbers, and punctuation marks on one end. This type is then arranged to spell out the document, smeared with ink, and lowered by the frame onto the paper by means of a large and adjustable screw, supported by a cross beam (Hook, 2009, p. 46). The press is, again, hardly an impressive-looking feat of engineering. Essentially, it......

Press Freedom

...Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States, recognized that principle before either the constitution or the bill of rights in 1786 when he wrote “Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of press, not that be limited without danger of losing it.” It is precisely when the free press is telling us what we don’t want to hear, when it’s challenging government officials, exposing government misconduct and refusing to be the unofficial mouthpiece of any government agency, that the press stands most in need of peoples’ protection. The form of media that we commonly refer to as the "news," disseminates information with the primary goal of informing the citizenry and, thereby, the democracy. This is in contrast to the political / entertainment media which diffuses information with the primary goal of generating profit, money and/or political power, regardless of its impact on democracy. Because media, generally, has no citizenship (media is not human), no form of media has an inalienable right to freedom of speech. However, as part of its information-providing role and in order to fulfill its vital mission, the news media must be free to report its observations that are facts regardless of the potential outcomes. In other words, media has an inherent duty to observe, investigate and report to the public about government and political process, and must, therefore, be able to report those......

Freedom of the Press

...with freedom of press when it’s either about them or if its bad press. I have never seen anyone complaining about press that is in his or her favor or anything that is not in his or her favor Freedom of the press is defined by dictionary.com as the right to circulate opinion in print without censorship from the government. America’s Founding Fathers believed so strongly in the right to free speech that they codified it in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which states in part, “Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” This right was considered so important it was the first of the ten freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights. So why should anyone think or feel that they can limit people on their right as humans. I see freedom of press as the same thing as freedom of speech. Most individual are fine with freedom of press until it hits home. So why take the right away when your in the spotlight. It just isn’t fair. I really don’t think that sensitive information sways people in the work plae one way or the other. For everything that said in the press there is something written that disputes the information. So now you have a decision to make as a consumer of the information. Which is the truth you want to believe. There will be a group of people that belive one side and another group that goes the other way. This is where the controversy comes into play. Therefore I don’t believe that the freedom of press is the......

World Press Freedom Day, Other Side of the Coin On 3rd of May every year, soon after the termination of the Labour Day activities world press freedom day is observed. Freedom of press is a perpetual issue. There is always divided opinion over rights and duties of press. The media owners and journalists are always of the view that there should be liberty of they are bound to the futile rules and regulations and have no freedom to express the truth. On the other hand the ministries of the information argue that they have given extra ordinary freedom to the press. In fact these two opinions are the two extremes. The situation is in between these two states. Media insists on knowing more and more in order to astonish their viewers and readers. There is a lot of evidence that media aggrandize the matters always or conceal facts due to some overt purposes. Each and every country has formulated laws to control the media.

Theory Critique Cloud and Townsend

...Theory Critique: Cloud and Townsend Sue Miller Liberty University Concise Summary of Theory Henry Cloud and John Townsed’s book, Boundaries in marriage (1999), builds off of other works that the authors have penned together on the topic of creating Godly boundaries in relationships. The authors premise their work on the belief that clearly delineated boundaries are essential both for the health of the individual establishing the boundaries and the health of the relationship that the boundary has been established in. Boundaries are described as a “personal property line” that “promote love by protecting individuals” (Cloud & Townsend, 1999, p.10). Some people struggle with establishing boundaries particularly people with poor developmental histories and people who have grown up in households where loose boundaries esxisted. Often times establishing boundaries is difficult for Christians who have a sense of sacrificing their own personal needs and desires for the needs and desires of others. Cloud and Townsend maintain that boundaries are Godly and that they are a critical component necessary for an indivual to establish their identity and self-worth. People with no boundaries are vulnerable to being taken advantage of and that is not God’s desire. Cloud and Townsend demonstrate that boundaries can be utilized to assist with spiritual growth, personal growth and are critical components involved in healing relationships. Boundaries can be physical......

Freedom of the Press

...Since the establishment of the freedom of the press many positive influences has taken place in our society today. Policies and rules have come from the media shedding light on issues of sexual harassment in the work place and equal opportunities. However, today the media has also taken advantage of the freedom of press amendment and gone beyond its intended usage of protecting the publishing of useful information without repercussion. The effects of the consistence repeat of highly sensitive reports being broadcast has effected how people interact among each other, how people resolve conflict, and racism within the work place. Therefore, my thesis for this paper is that the recent trend of reporting sensitive topics by the world of multimedia does have a negative impact in the work environment and on society. Therefore, the purpose of my paper is to show the negative impact of the press since the incorporation of the freedom of press amendment on the working world by providing factual of negative incidences that have been made famous because of the media. First, in accordance to Annenberg classroom,“Freedom of Speech and of the Press: The First Amendment allows citizens to express and to be exposed to a wide range of opinions and views. It was intended to ensure a free exchange of ideas even if the ideas are unpopular” (Annenbergclassroom,2014). Freedom of press applies to all printed and broadcast material, which includes books, newspapers, magazines, pamphlets,......

Bench Press

...The Bench Press The bench press is the most popular lift in the gym, but how do you do it properly? It can be broken down into three steps; the setup, the un-rack and decent, and the press and lockout. The most critical part of the bench press comes before you even touch the bar, the setup. First you lay on the bench aligning your eyes straight up and down with the bar. This sets you close enough to the bar for a proper un-rack, yet far enough from the rack to clear it when you do the exercise. Once aligned with the bar, you want to make sure your head, upper back and butt are firmly planted on the bench while you keep your feel planted on the floor. Next, you grip the bar. You will want to put your index finger about two inches outside shoulder width. This is just a general rule but will need to be adjusted slightly to make sure when the bar is touching your chest that your forearms are perpendicular to the bar. After the setup comes the un-rack and decent portion of the exercise. After you get your grip, you will want to try and bend the bar in half while trying to pull it apart. What this does is activate all the muscles in your back to give you a nice stable platform to press from. Next, take a deep breath and un-rack the bar. Once the bar settles over your chest and you have total control, you can start your decent. During the decent your back should be pulling the bar down, not your chest trying to push it away. Once the bar comes to rest on your......

Printing Press

...that changed lives. One invention that really changed every person’s life for the good was the printing press. Before the printing press, everything was handwritten and most books were mostly copied and handwritten by monks. The monks would copy and write the bible the most but they would also copy things such as philosophical views and other types of scholarly documents. The spread of knowledge has been easier to spread due to the printing press. The printing press allowed books, articles, newspapers, pamphlets, and documents to be reproduced and printed on a much larger scale and in much quicker time. Also, it made communication a lot simpler by giving people an easy and quick way to communicate. When the printing press came out, it allowed anything to be printed in other common languages such as English, French, Latin, German, and other European languages that were common at the time. The printing press also helped creating a standardized language by making up and printing a dictionary. The dictionary was able to give people the knowledge to understand each other better and know the same meaning of every word. It was less costly for people to learn how to write and read, making it easier to communicate more effectively. The spread of knowledge through the printing press was getting many more people interested in the written word other than believing myths. The printing press has been involved and influenced in the Reformation, the Renaissance and the Scientific......

Meet the Press

...Meet The Press February 5th 2012 My my first time watching the show I actually found it interesting aside from not knowing what they are actually talking about some of the time. This episode of February 5th was accompanied by guest speaker Newt Gingrich. Newt was asked to speak on several topics which include his thoughts on Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, as response to war on religion and a update on the current job market status and how Romney won't help it. Also before I get started I wanted to point out that the host was sort of rude and liked cutting people off when they speak. I'm sure he knows his politics but who does he think he is? I may be exaggerating but he rubbed me the wrong way with his questions, I mean attacks. To start off the show the hosts asked Mr. Gingrich what he thought about Mitt Romney and his winning poles in Nevada. The well thought response of Mr. Gingrich was as something like this. Mr. Gingrich Accused Mitt Romney of spreading rumors that Newt would withdraw from the race at Caucus time, which I'm still not sure exactly what Caucus is or if it should even be capitalized or not, heh. In, addition to his first response he added that he is basically moving on and not dreading on the past. Mr. Gingrich seems to have a clear agenda ahead as he continues to respond to the statement that basically meant Romney just cleaned house in Nevada. Newt says he is moving on, moving to Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Texas and focuses and......

The British Press

...THE BRITISH PRESS The newspaper reading is the essential part of British culture. British people are not expected to do at least a day without their newspapers. Almost every household in Britain is subscribed to one of the main national papers. That is why the press is so powerful in the UK. It is sometimes referred to as ‘the fourth estate’ (after the Monarch, the Lords and the Commons). There are national and regional or local newspapers in Britain, but the dominance of the national press is evident. They usually come out in the mornings and are delivered to the readers’ doors during the so-called morning ‘paper rounds’. So, the morning newspaper is a very important household institution in Britain. The British press is controlled by a number of large multinational companies. None of them is an organ of a political party, but all of them occupy a certain position on the right-left spectrum. This position reflect political outlook of the owners of the newspapers. Actually, most of them are Conservative party supporters so the majority of the newspapers are obviously in favor of this party. We can divide the major national papers into 2 parts: broadsheets, or quality papers and tabloids. Broadsheets cater for educated readers who are interested in politics and other serious news. Tabloids are written in a simple style and concentrate on ‘human interest’ stories, so they sell to a much larger readership. One of the most distinct features of the national press is its......

Printing Press

...The Printing Press What’s so important about the Printing Press? It had numerous reasons as to why it was so important, but this essay will just name a few. This will tell the reader who invented it and what inspired him to do so. It will explain the importance the printing press had at the time it was invented. Along with explaining how important the machine was at the time of its invention, this will also explain how the machine is still important today. It is important because it enabled books such as the bible to be produced and helped the spread of ideas. Johan Gutenberg lived in Strasberg, Germany in 1450 when he invented the Printing Press Movable. Information concerning Gutenberg’s life is minimal since history has little knowledge about him. One thing we do know is that he was born in Mainz, Germany, where he moved to and set up a printing shop and completed the first true book in the West produced by his movable printing press: The Bible, completed between 1455 -1456. Unfortunately, he lost his shop to a creditor. Gutenberg died at the age of seventy-one in the year 1468. Printing became one of the largest industries in the western world. It had an enormous impact on the intellectual society. New religious ideas would have never been able to spread with such speed and ease throughout Europe without the aid of printing press. The Bible commentaries, books of devotion, and sermons made up more than 50% of the publication printed and spread throughout......

Freedom of Press

...Allison Ash Mrs. Morris CWI March 26th Freedom Of Press Freedom of press is the right to publish newspapers, magazines, and other printed matter without governmental restriction and subject only to the laws of libel, obscenity, sedition, etc. Freedom of press is what helps us know what’s going on around the world. Freedom of press tells us also what is going on outside of our country and what is going on to places we have never been to, or heard about. Bolivia does not allow freedom of press because people’s opinions and thoughts don’t seem to be as valued as they should. The reporter’s rights could cause them to be in prison for up to five years. Not only are their rights taken away but their records to find a job and all that they must need to live. All because of an opinion and them expressing it to others. This world report talks mainly about the issue of Freedom of expression and how in October 2010 that all media that includes “endorsement or publishing or discriminatory ideas” reporters can be fined and their licenses can be taken away and that means that they are out of a job. If journalists “spread ideas based on racial superiority or hatred” they could face prison for about five years. In one instance in the Página Siete and El Diario newspapers there was a criminal complaint from the government that stated there was an anti-racism law against the Fides News Agency that objected the coverage of a speech by Morales about food shortages. What was......

Freedom of Press

...important ingredient of democracy is the existence of free and fearless press. In a democracy, the press must enjoy complete freedom and should not be subjected to any restriction. The voice of the press is the voice of the people. Censoring the press means the suppression of people’s voice. So the very survival of democracy inevitably depends on the freedom of the press. But at the same time, the press must not fail to follow its code of conduct and misuse the freedom. The press plays a very positive and constructive role in a democracy. It keeps the people informed of the national and international news and happenings. It brings to the notice of people the programmes, policies and activities of the government. Similarly, it keeps the Government in the know of the people’s problems, difficulties, hopes and aspirations. Thus the press plays a dual role. It serves as a bridge between the Government on the one hand and the people on the other. Of course, the role of the press cannot be minimized even in a dictatorship, because a dictator also needs the press for reflecting his ideology and policies. A dictator uses the press to prop up his image by highlighting his achievements. But in this case the press gives very little feedback to the dictator. Another crucial difference between the press in a democracy and the press in a dictatorship is that while the press in a democracy is free, frank and fearless, the press in a dictatorship is subservient to the whims and fancies of......
