The history of modern media begins with the printed book, certainly a kind of
revolution, yet initially only a technical device for reproducing a range of texts the same
as, or similar to, what was already being extensively copied by hand. Only gradually
does printing lead to a change in content, more secular, practical and popular works as well as political and religious tracts, which played a part in the transformation of the medieval world. At an early date, laws were also printed by royal and other authorities.
Thus, there occurred a revolution of society in which printing played an inseparable
part. Over the past decades, the development of technology has made it easier for people to access different types of media such as television, internet, newspaper etc. Printed books, papers, news or letters date back to the 15th century. The history of printed media and written communication has changed and aims to fit in with the technological developments during the past years.
The successful application of print technology to the reproduction of texts in place of handwriting, about the mid-fifteenth century, was only the first step in the emergence of what we now call a ‘media institution', an organized set of interrelated activities and roles, directed towards certain goals and governed by a set of rules and procedures. Around 25,000-30,000 years ago B.C. first humans used to paint on cave walls pictures and silly marks; these silly marks represented their own way of communicating with the spiritual world and each other.Johann Gutenberg’s brilliant invention brought the creation of the first newspaper printed in Germany in 1609. Later, in 1702, England had the first printed daily newspaper. Printers were later tran...

- Today’s parenting model was composed by diversity, through media and books that parents got to know different parenting styles. Since more and more people focused on how to cultivate the next generation, the difference between Chinese and Western parenting styles would arouse controversy.

- Parenting Styles Parent has changed with the years. Spanking a child was okay in the past, but is frowned upon. Some parents believe in talking through situations. “In any society, parenting beliefs are a reflection of that society 's cultural values and traditions” (Hulei, Zevenbergen, & Jacobs, 2006). Traditions in one culture may not be accepted in another culture. Traditions change with the times; what is accepted today may not be accepted later in the future. Parent is based on three main styles, but past research has included a fourth.... [tags: Parenting styles, Parenting, Parent]

- 1. Cost-effectiveness.

However, a simple force-field analysis or cost-benefit analysis would be useful to justify the survey investment.... [tags: Learning styles, Training, Skill, Education]

The anti-Asian exclusion era (1880s to 1940s) in Canada played a pivotal role in the emergence of the “Chinese” identity. Benedict Anderson describes the ‘imagined community’ as a community that is built through emotional ties with one another. Anderson states that the community "is imagined because the members of even the smallest nation will never know most of their fellow-members, meet them, or even hear of them, yet in the minds of each lives the image of their communion,” (Anderson 1991)....
