    Debate: Talk Shows Chrsitine Tirman Talk About Talk Shows In the world of television, talk shows have undoubtedly taken up almost every inch of space on daytime television, and while doing so has caused much controversy.

Some of the talk shows on the air today, such as the Oprah Winfrey Show and t ...

  • With Talk Shows Ruling Daytime Television, People Are Left With Little Choice But To - 782 words
    With talk shows ruling day-time television, people are left with little choice but to watch this humiliating form of entertainment. Turn the television on in the afternoon and you will find a large variety of talk shows to choose from. "Maybe we have become a nation addicted to hearing our neighbors' seamy personal problems"(You 40). Personally, I feel it is both the lack of choice and the attraction to other peoples problems. Many of the topics on talk shows are degrading to our society. If person came to America for the first time and watched television, they would probably see a talk show. The model a talk show would give of American society is horrifying. For example, a common talk show ...

  • Argumetative Single Gender Schooling - 855 words
    Argumetative Single Gender Schooling Single Gender Schooling: A better learning environment For years, educators have searched for better and more effective ways of teaching. Their efforts have resulted in the specialization of instruction according to the specific needs of different students. We have seen therefore, specific classes for dyslexic children, special instruction for visual learners, teaching methods, which target non-native English speakers etc. At a more basic level however, the separation of our educational efforts by gender, has proven to be controversial at best. I believe that grouping young students according to sex, provides a better learning environment and is more cond ...

  • Diary By Bridget Jones - 660 words
    Diary By Bridget Jones On a good day, Bridget Jones weighs no more than 120 pounds, smokes no more than five cigarettes, imbibes no more than three alcohol units, comes up with one or two clever ideas at the office meeting, and checks her voice mail maybe two or three times to see if her boyfriend has phoned. On a bad day - of which there are many - the statistics are less satisfying. Still, the obsessive Jones dutifully records them all in her hilarious but poignant diary: "Saturday 12 August: 129 pounds, alcohol units 3 (v.g.), cigarettes 32 (v.v. bad, particularly since first day of giving up) . . . voice mail calls 22, minutes spent having cross imaginary conversations with Daniel 120, m ...

  • Evolution Of Rap Music - 2,575 words
    ... Signed: THE EVOLUTION OF RAP MUSIC Rap is a form of urban music, which emerged from the hip-hop movement of the South Bronx, New York, in the early 1970s. The hip-hop culture was comprised of the popular street activities of African-American youth during the 1970s such as: styles of language, street-slang colloquialisms, graffiti, break dancing, music and their colourful attitude and fashion. Rap music is therefor a subculture to the hip-hop movement, or what many describe as the soundtrack to accompany the other facets of the hip-hop culture . This means that any changes that take place within the hip-hop culture itself will be reflected in the subculture of rap music. Since the 1970s ...

  • Ice Storm - 1,298 words
    Ice Storm There are many ways to tell a story. Back before there were books there as the actual storyteller who could speak out a story. There is also acting where people physically perform a story. Books are another storytelling device that is more permanent, the words are kept and they can be reviewed again and again. Now there are movies, which provide story telling with more an emphasis on visual effects. The question is which way is the best to present a certain type of story. The Ice Storm by Rick Moody was in such a position that one could actually look at both the modern movie and the book version. The story is a realistic story about the Hoods and the Willams. Both of these families ...

  • In The First Article The Authors Speak About What The Major Factors Of Poverty Are The Number One Reason Is The Imbalance In - 291 words
    In the first article the authors speak about what the major factors of poverty are. The number one reason is the imbalance in the distribution of wealth because the rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer. They also say that the military also aggravates the causes because they spend so much money on valuable recourses on the production of tools and weapons that cause human destruction. The only thing I dont agree with is that I dont believe that the military are wasting that money. They are putting that money and those recourses in good use. You never know when we will get pushed into another war. Without the deadly tools for human destruction in a war we would probably get ...

  • Jane Fonda - 1,171 words
    Jane Fonda Who is Jane Fonda? This is a question often asked by many people with no one right answer. She is an actress, a fitness guru, a former communist sympathizer, and most importantly, an antiwar activist during the Vietnam War. Although Jane Fonda was honored as one of the 100 Women of the Century, her infamous name is one Vietnam veterans will never forget.

  • Love And Color - 1,747 words
    Love And Color Is love colorblind? Just three decades ago, Thurgood Marshall was only months away from appoint- ment to the Supreme Court when he suffered an indignity that today seems not just outrageous but almost incomprehensible. He and his wife had found their dream house in a Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C., but could not lawfully live together in that state: he was black and she was Asian. Fortunately for the Marshalls, in January 1967 the Supreme Court struck down the anti-interracial-marriage laws in Virginia and 18 other states. And in 1967 these laws were not mere leftover scraps from an extinct era. Two years before, at the crest of the civil-rights revolution, a Gallup poll ...

People can't have trust in the media and many don't feel they can trust the judicial system. The media has taken it one step further, there is a book in the works on this case and they are negotiating a movie. It is hard to believe anyone could profit from this (French 1). Was the Vietnam War lost because of the media or because of political policies executed by senior commanders in Vietnam and by elected officials in Washington? The military claims that American reporters had free access to most battlefields, and were against the American effort. Officers claim t ...

    Modern Psychology Everyday, this chant is heard by millions of people watching the now infamous "talk show", Jerry Springer. Even though just a few years ago, most people regarded these shows as ridiculous, now this chant is recognized and adored by many people in society. The most parsimonious explanation for this is that the shows now have more interesting and captivating topics. The premise of most episodes of these shows has changed greatly over the past few years; The topics have moved away from large scale social issues, like homosexuality and cancer, to relationship and familial issues, like adultery and mothers who are too flirtatious with their daughter's boyfriends.
