    This story is about my sister talking to a friend and saying what really goes on in their lives. I can't think of any times that something like this happened to me, so I'll use an example of their lives. It's from the perspective of my sister Kirsty. She told me about this conversation recently, and I still remember it for some reason. "Can you keep a secret?" Becky asked me in a hushed tone. We were in my living room. Last I checked, my walls don't have ears. I had no idea why she was speaking so quietly. "Why? What is it?" I was wise to this type of chit-chat. She wanted to tell me a piec

    The Paparazzi Are A Menace To Society And Should Be Banned

    945 words - 4 pages

    The paparazzi are “men of remarkable guile, diligence and sophistication.” Many may not agree to this statement of reporter William Langley’s; in reality some might even say the paparazzi are pests and stalkers, however I believe this is incorrect. When you mention the paparazzi, the majority would definitely bring up numerous negative points and hardly any in favor of the paparazzi. Yet that is because we have not truly understood the job of a paparazzi- the effort, devotion and dedication one has to put in is extraordinary. The paparazzi are often misunderstood as intruders of privacy

    Effects Of Gossiping

    “He Said, She Said…” Remember the game of Telephone? You know the one I’m talking about… you probably played it around the fire at summer camp, or perhaps in the back of a school bus on a field trip. It starts out with one person whispering a “secret” in someone’s ear. This “secret” gets passed around the circle until it reaches the final person, who then says it out loud. Everyone subsequently gets a good laugh at how absurdly different the final secret is from the initial one. The game itself is innocent enough, but it’s inspired by something a little more sinister: gossip. It sound

    My Name It is like an American teenagers dream; it fits in, not too boring but not ‘a sore thumb’. It is like the familiar things: a Honda accord, a north face backpack, Addidas running shoes and medium length hair, preferences: the color blue, vanilla ice cream and 106.1 fm radio station. These are ordinary things expected of the name Jessica. This certain name was originated from the Hebrew language meaning “God’s grace”.

    Information Identity The Book of Probes by Marshall McLuhan and David Carson contains the most famous aphorisms by McLuhan. An aphorism is a bold and ambiguous compact statement intended to provoke thought. By being bold, an aphorism captures the attention of the reader and its ambiguity compels the reader to contemplate and interpret its meaning. McLuhan used aphorisms because they encouraged probing instead of theorizing. Probe is a penetrating investigation or inquiry (OED); whereas, theory is a scheme or system of ideas or statements held as an explanation; a statement of what a
