The Benefits and Disadvantages of On-line Newspapers
For centuries, newspapers have provided the world with up-to-date, useful information. During the World Wars, America turned to the printed press to receive reports, as the newspapers were a vital source of information for the public; however, over the last sixty years newspapers have evolved from more than just tangible chunks of paper that can be sold on a street corner.
Today, international newspapers can be found in mere seconds with a simple click of the mouse. In fact, many digital media experts believe that the second phase of the online newspaper phenomenon, called “Digital Delivery Daily,” will soon be upon us. If it works, consumers may soon see many different forms of media, including newspapers, which move out of print and into digital (Robins 2001). There is no doubt about it; the future of newspapers may very well be in the digital world. However, is this a good idea? The cyber world is filled with hackers, cyber-terrorists, slow connections, system crashes and excess traffic. When all of these factors are taken into consideration, many people are left wondering if eliminating the printing press in favor of digital technology is a good idea. Without a doubt, the internet has many disadvantages when compared to the traditional printed press. Newspapers and informational magazines should not be published exclusively on the internet because of two reasons: hackers and computer viruses.
Hackers have existed since the launch of the internet itself. Hackers, who pride themselves on demolishing data and changing a computer’s structure, use digital armaments to take advantage of the naiveté of the internet. Although hackers use a variety of me...

According to the Children’s Development Institute, ballet can teach a child to be able to be in front of people and to be confident in themselves. On top of this it can help children learn to follow directions, work well with others, and have a sense of self-discipline.("The Benefits of Classical Ballet, 2015). This website does not support any medical facts. Childhood is where our minds are molded. Of course, there are always genetic mental illnesses, but who we are as a person often stems from how we were raised. Ballet can help our minds with so much. We learn and grow from its beauty and its discipline. I have only been dancing in a class since last fall and I already have learned so much. Ballet is not only the foundation for all dance forms, it is a foundation for confidence and self-awareness as
One of the first connections Wattenberg makes is raising the issue of whether or not newspapers are a dying habit when looking, not only at the adolescents of America, but as the country as a whole. Overall, he states that the number of people who consistently read a newspaper on a daily basis has remained on a steady decline as the years go by. Wattenberg brings up the topic that earlier on in history the newspaper was the means of information for people all across America, and it was filled with political news to keep the citizens informed. However, in today 's society not only has technology taken over this old time habit, the new
Newspapers have allowed for such a freedom in our everyday lives, and most have not even realized this fact. They have provided us with an outlet to speak our mind about politics, societal issues, public differences, and religion and cultures. Searching online to find such knowledge can be extremely challenging; moreover, newspapers always seem to be a place to find valid information. Newspapers have started to come off the printer more slowly over the past decade. More people are turning to electronic ways to find information rather than going to the direct source where that electronic media got their information. Most reliable information comes from newspapers where high up and educated citizens or leaders speak their mind on certain and important topics. The reason newspapers should stay a part of today’s society is because they offer a way for people to speak freely about what they please and get their voice heard, they are always credible, and they help us hear the problems of the world openly from different perspectives.
When discussing the media, we must search back to its primal state the News Paper. For it was the News paper and its writers that forged ahead and allowed freedoms for today’s journalism on all fronts, from the Twitter accounts to the daily gazettes all must mark a single event in the evolution of media in respects to politics and all things shaping. Moving on in media history, we began to see a rapid expansion around 1990. With more than 50% of all American homes having cable TV access, newspapers in every city and town with major newspaper centers reaching far more than ever before. Then the introduction of the Internet; nothing would ever be the same.
Millions of people use various online news organizations as their primary sources for local, national and world news. Most newspapers have an online version which is much more convenient to consumers than the print version. News on the Internet can be updated immediately as events unfold, whereas printed papers are already out of date before they are even delivered by the paperboy. Sometimes the newspaper is only good for lining the cage of a parakeet by the time it is de...
“Out of Print” written by Eric Alterman is a very informative article. It relates to me in a major way considering that I’ve been interested in journalism all of my life. I get my daily news from CNN, the thought of reading a newspaper never crossed my mind.There has been a major decline in newspapers due to technology’s rapid advancement. Is this a good shift in our society? How long will print journalism be used? Many scholars believe that newspapers will not be around much longer. We must adapt with the technological changes in our society. Many also believe that newspapers will always be relevant. I believe that newspapers have no worth in today’s society. Why do we need them? We can simply access the news via cell-phone or computer. “Independent, publicly traded American newspapers have lost forty-two per cent of their market value in the past three years, according to the media entrepreneur Alan Mutter.”

According to an article by Marjie Gilliam, titled “The many Health Benefits of Dancing,” dance offers a total body workout, using all of the major muscle groups and providing heart-healthy benefits. And that “the benefits can extend beyond fitness.” His study shows that, a recent study in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine found that teaching the cha-cha to a small group of older adults twice a week for six months was enough to improve their memory and cognitive function on a number of tests. Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that ballroom dancing at least twice a week made people less likely to develop dementia (Marjie Gilliam). In my personal experience, dance helped improve my health because it is a form of physical activity. For example, in high school, I was in a dance club and we had to dance to hip hop. It required a lot of body movements and a lot of energy. I remember sweating a lot after an intense hip hop dance session. Moreover, through this dance club I lost weight and got more fit. Thus, dancing definitely benefits our health and keeps our body in shape. In kinesiology where health factors are also present, it is important to reflect that dance has shown many groups of people, past or present, the significance amount of movements it offers as well as health benefits ever since back in the
The entire newspaper industry is in a period of uncertainty, including the nations top performing newspapers. USA Today is among the best newspapers, yet the company is struggling to maintain readership.

It has become increasingly important for students to be able to read and understand the complex language of mathematics in order to perform well on both classroom assessments and statewide assessments like, the California Smarter Balanced Mathematics Assessment. In addition to knowing how to do math accurately and efficiently students must be able to read and comprehend the questions on assessments in order to demonstrate their math knowledge (DiGisi & Fleming, 2005). “Test score data and research continually confirm that many adolescents first need to improve their reading comprehension skills before they can take full advantage of content-area instruction” (Kamil et al.,
