On the bottom right-hand corner, the slogan “We go to the story, so you get the story,” is clearly visible and similarly, on the top right-hand corner the Nightly News’ host’s name, Lester Holt, is visible in white print; however, underneath the text, written in red print is the word Paris, which informs the audience of where the image was taken and doubles as a sinister, yet symbolic representation of the tragedy that
In our daily basis we are bombarded with millions of images, but we rarely stop to think about what those images mean and what they are persuading us to do. Images can be found in many forms, newspapers, magazines, internet, radio, television, smart phones, social media and billboards, amongst other forms. Images have power, which is why individuals need to understand the messages being sent to them.
The image that was presented to me was The Handbill for the meeting of the Free Soil Party. This is more of an advertisement, there are big bold letters that say phrases such as FREE SOIL! GRAND RALLY! In the advertisement, there are certain names that stand out such as Charles Sumner, Van Buren, and John G. Nazro. It is almost as if it is announcing a big event. It marks the date Thursday, October 5th at 7 1-2 o’ clock. It is giving information on what will be taking place in the meeting. This article shows excitement.
The bolded text “We Will Never Let Money Hide Reality From Us.”, gives the image it’s true meaning. I believe the meaning of the image is that bribes from big corporations will not hide what these big corporations are doing to the environment.
Though a wonderful educational and social resource, the internet poses a multitude of dangers of its own. In this day and age most homes have the internet and even cafes and shops offer wifi services so people can access the internet from pretty much anywhere and with games consoles, mobile phones and a multitude of other devices having internet capabilities you do not need to own a computer or laptop now to be able to access the world wide web. Unfortunately peadophiles and other dangerous and unsavoury characters have cottoned on to the power of the internet and use it for their own vile ends.
While analyzing this, I found it difficult to understand why and how this poster was made. There was no author, website or links associated; I simply typed in “Posters that mean something powerful.” And this appeared in google images. I believe the mystery of how and where this image came from makes its rhetorical appeal more of “ethos”. The writer who created this wanted readers to feel emotionally connect to the image. Immediately your visually pulled into an image that shows a good amount of blood. Blood makes you ask the question why or how is something okay. The fact that blood is coming from two pencils makes me link the image to education. This image called me to write about how the public school system is leading children into
The propaganda pictures can be analyzed through the process of SOAPSTone. The Speaker is shown through the sponsors or organization that approved of the picture; the Speaker of the pro and con are WikiLeaks and the NSA, CIA, and FBI respectively. The occasion is shown through the copyright or the year of approval of the picture, which for both is 2009. The audience, which is the same for both, are the citizens of the United States, and it is showed through direct speech in the pro image or the image on the laptop in con image. Purpose is quite opposite. The pro side is trying to persuade U.S. Citizens to group up and stop U.S. document confidentiality with the help of the site called “WikiLeaks”, while the con side is trying to persuade U.S.
The Internet has proven itself to be helpful, but it can also be a scary place. When the Internet first emerged, it was difficult to gauge its full potential. The Internet was actually created as a “military communications network in the 1960s” (Campbell et al., 2016, p. 41). However, the Internet became a more integral part of society around the 21st century when it transformed into a hub of information and entertainment. The film, The Net, features the early years of the Internet and the dangers that came with it. This film took a radical stance about how the Internet can damage a person’s life. The film remains relevant today since it inspires paranoia regarding the fragile safety
Technology is a big part of life today, I mean think about it everywhere you look technology is used from computers at school to self-driving cars on the highways. Everywhere you turn technology is there to make our lives faster and easier. It’s hard to believe something we use every single day to function could become so dangerous. Technology can be so wonderful and helpful at times but, when you’re not careful with personal pictures or information they can have the potential to be accessed by anyone at any time online. In “Could You Become a Mean Meme?” by Kristin Lewis the author explains the positive and negative aspects of the influence of technology on today’s society, as well as how to prevent certain situations on the internet.
In an article by Nicholas Carr, “Is Google Making Us Stupid”, the author is questioning the readers about the internet and making suggestions that the internet is changing how our brains operate. Throughout the article, the author's main point is to inform us about the negative effects of the internet on humans.
15). This is what makes our brains so susceptible to the the negative or positive outcomes of Internet use. Whether the effects the Internet on our brain is positive or negative, in paragraph 32 Carr expresses that maybe his trepidation of the effects of the Internet is not as significant as he makes it seem. Even Socrates was afraid that when people began writing, they would lose their memorization abilities and become forgetful (Carr par. 32) By pointing out that his idea may not be correct, Carr keeps the essay from being bias for the naive reader. However he then continues his argument with more evidence and examples of how the Internet is negatively effecting us. Throughout his essay Carr always seems to relate all of his support, evidence, and examples to the idea that due to excessive use of the Internet, humans capability of analyzing and interpreting at a deep level of concentration is lacking more than ever
People argue that technology can be dangerous because Technology contains information that many would rather it not have. It influences minds in bad ways, and it allows people to share information, which they would otherwise not be able
