A Critical Assessment Of Media Effects

6390 руб.
The 1994 genocide against the tutsi shocked the world. Scholars analyzed what could have led to such a mass atrocity and the media -radio in particular- came up as a contributing factor. Now that the country is in a process of reconstruction; radio, the most popular medium in developing countries, has been seen as a partner in contributing to building peace. This research argues that radio broadcasting; although a double edge sword; remains a powerful tool for peacebuilding, healing and reconciliation in post-conflict settings. Through a critical, careful and detailed analysis, the author threads out the interweaved components of this complex issue that has been over-simplified in the past, and through this the reader gets a better understanding of the radio's contribution and limitations to peacebuilding efforts in post-conflict countries. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars and students in Media and Communication studies, Conflict Resolution, International Relations, Genocide Studies, Peacebuilding and practitioners of media in post-conflict settings.

Contesting Habermas:

7790 руб.
In this book, the author offers a critical assessment of the state of critical theory as expounded in the works of its most recent adherent - Jurgen Habermas. The author argues that under Habermas's stewardship, critical theory has taken a wrong turn, and this has left it conceptually ill-equipped to serve as a critical theory of contemporary society. The roots of this problem lie in Habermas's jettisoning the Hegelian and dialectical heritage of critical theory for one grounded in the moral philosophy of Kant. This is explained by what the author argues is a serious misreading of Hegel, associating dialectics with absolutist tendencies, or in the case of Adorno, with aporia and fatalism. The author proceeds to expose these misreadings, arguing that a return to Hegel is not only viable but necessary if we are to return the critical impulse to critical theory.

Corrosion Effects of Mild Steel in Alkaline Media: Laser Irradiation

7790 руб.
The corrosive effects of sulphate ions in alkaline media have not to date been clearly outlined or defined. Research of sulphate attack is at a critical stage. In spite of meaningful advances in the past few years, this problem is still not well understood. Extensive work by many researchers has been conducted on studies relating to the effect of chloride ions in acidic and alkaline media. The bulk of research work has been done in relation to stainless steels in the above-mentioned media. This research study aims to focus on a more commonly used construction material, mild steel, otherwise known as carbon steel, and to determine and define the effects of sulphate ions on their own and the effect of sulphate ions in the presence of chloride ions in alkaline media. Commercial grade mild steel was tested using the gravimetric and potentiodynamic methods, in alkaline solutions of varying concentrations of sulphate ions together with additions of different concentrations of chloride ions. Results show that mild steel material protection is seriously compromised when in the presence of highly basic media.

Jaeho Kang Walter Benjamin and the Media. The Spectacle of Modernity

4332.76 руб.
Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), one of the most original and perceptive thinkers of the twentieth century, offered a unique insight into the profound impact of the media on modern society. Jaeho Kang’s book offers a lucid introduction to Benjamin’s theory of the media and its continuing relevance today. The book provides a systematic and close reading of Benjamin’s critical and provocative writings on the intersection between media – from print to electronic – and modern experience, with reference to the information industry, the urban spectacle, and the aesthetic politics. Bringing Benjamin’s thought into a critical constellation with contemporary media theorists such as Marshall McLuhan and Jean Baudrillard, the book helps students understand the implications of Benjamin’s work for media studies today and how they can apply his distinctive ideas to contemporary media culture. Kang’s book leads to a fresh appreciation of Benjamin’s work and new insight into critical theoretical approaches to media. The book will be of particular interest to students and researchers not only in media and communication studies but also in cultural studies, film studies and social theory, who are seeking a readable overview of Benjamin’s rich yet complex writings.

An assessment of the MHC as a media regulatory body in Rwanda

5790 руб.
This book is a result of analytical efforts of the media regulation in Rwanda. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that freedom of the press is a scarce resource for the establishment of any democracy. Without defining what they want, many countries have borrowed this text and applied it to their constitutions. From my experience, good laws are not enough to make good journalism. It is critical to match the good laws with the practice of the media and see the results. In fact, if one wishes to learn more about the harm of unregulated media, Rwanda would be a good example because of the role media played in the 1994 Tutsi genocide. That media regulation should be left in the hands of media professionals is also an ethical question because professionals without good conscience can only harm. Based on the practical experience of the author, this book will help media scholars and policy makers to understand the unexplored areas of media regulation. It will also help you to take informed decisions when it comes to prepare and implement media laws. Hope you will enjoy it and invite others to read it.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996

6690 руб.
Revision with unchanged content. The enactment of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 fundamentally changed the basis of broadcast and communication media regulation and the structure of broadcast media in the United States. Touted by its proponents in the American media industry as a remedy for a regulatory regime viewed as non-competitive, the Telecommunications Act fundamentally changed ownership restrictions, reshaping local markets and effectively shifting ownership from local to non local entities. This research assesses the effects of this sweeping deregulation of U.S. broadcast media by disaggregating national data and examining in detail how this legislation affected individual broadcast markets. An examination of the sale of radio stations before and after the enactment of the Telecommunications Act gives the reader insight into the following questions: Did deregulation of broadcast media ownership regulations in the United States enhance competition and programming variety? Did deregulation affect ownership structures in smaller broadcast media markets in the same manner and at the same time as larger markets? This book is of interest to critical mass media and communications students and scholars, as well as students interested in the sociology of mass media and formal organizations.

Media Politics in China

8685 руб.
Who watches over the party-state? In this engaging analysis, Maria Repnikova reveals the webs of an uneasy partnership between critical journalists and the state in China. More than merely a passive mouthpiece or a dissident voice, the media in China also plays a critical oversight role, one more frequently associated with liberal democracies than with authoritarian systems. Chinese central officials cautiously endorse media supervision as a feedback mechanism, as journalists carve out space for critical reporting by positioning themselves as aiding the agenda of the central state. Drawing on rare access in the field, Media Politics in China examines the process of guarded improvisation that has defined this volatile partnership over the past decade on a routine basis and in the aftermath of major crisis events. Combined with a comparative analysis of media politics in the Soviet Union and contemporary Russia, the book highlights the distinctiveness of Chinese journalist-state relations, as well as the renewed pressures facing them in the Xi era.

Creative Opposition

5790 руб.
What I presented here is a framework that bridges the study of production and consumption in media and the historical study of media artifacts. It is a critical framework that privileges both the media producer and the consumer. Unlike other critical frameworks that demonize the capitalist class, often producers who have the steep capital to produce, promote, and distribute mainstream or mass media content, this framework, instead, accepts it as a reality that is equally as powerful as media consumers that now have many ways to shape and influence mainstream media content. Because the Internet has democratized media production, this framework is made all the more relevant. No longer are audiences just powerful as users or consumers, they are equally powerful as actual producers (not just influencers of production), especially of digital content that now converges with mass media. In a media environment where the Internet and mass media infrastructures merge, postmodernity is expected, and the framework that can capture and embrace the multitude of relations emerging from the equally powerful discourses arising from mainstream and convergent media becomes the most meaningful.

Earth Slope Stability Assessment Earth Slope Stability Assessment Новинка

Earth Slope Stability Assessment

5790 руб.
The stability assessment of earth slopes is one of the fundamental calculations in geotechnical engineering. The most commonly used methods for slope stability assessment is based on the limit equilibrium method of slices. In these methods, the potential sliding mass is subdivided into a number of vertical slices. The analysis is based on generation of the trial failure surfaces and evaluation of the safety factor corresponding to each trial surface. The critical failure surface is a surface with the lowest factor of safety. Generally, the problem of locating the critical failure surface associated with the minimum factor of safety may be formulated as an optimization problem and an effective optimization algorithm could provide a reliable solution. In this book, first the available global optimization techniques and limit equilibrium methods of slices will be reviewed. Afterwards, an effective global optimization algorithm based on particle swarm optimization will be presented. Also, application of the new algorithm for slope stability analysis and evaluation of minimum factor of safety and its associated critical failure surface will be discussed in detail.

One of the greatest challenges of the new media in recent years and one that will intensify further as world turns to a global village is the potential impacts of New Information and Communication Technologies (NICTs) on form and content of media output,the processes through which media messages are produced and consumed.Such challenges are however, not new,and of course the history of the mass media is a history of technological development with profound social consequences and implications at every stage. And there are strong grounds that contemporary media are undergoing particularly dramatic technologically driven changes, as characterized by media interactivity, accessibility and diversity of information overload with new freedoms for the audience, users, or consumers.It is resolved that this book will be able to:centre and justify the discourse on new media and terrorism and its potential for destruction in a more global context of post-modernism, and also enhance the knowledge of media professionals, media scholars and peace practitioners who will find this research instructive as it is a timely response to the awareness and effects of media globalization.

The Construction Of ‘Farm Killings’ In The Eastern Province Herald

5790 руб.
This study examines the ideological inflection of the ‘farm killings’ discourse in the Eastern Province Herald articles published in August 1998. ‘Farm killings’ is a media frame which was applied to a spate of killings of people on the country’s farms since 1994. Heightened and sustained media attention on the ‘farm killings’ has lifted the phenomenon from the other ‘run-of-the-mill’ murder crimes, and located it firmly as a matter of public concern and a subject of a broad political and economic debate. In this study I investigate the media coverage of the ‘farm killings’ within the context of these debates.The cultural studies approach to the study of the media provides a fruitful theoretical framework within which this study is located. The ideological examination of the articles is done using the critical linguistics method - a brand of reflexive, interpretative style of analysis which enables a sustained examination of media texts within their social, cultural and historical context. This study’s conclusions pose a challenge to the ‘Fourth Estate’ role often claimed for the media.

How to hone Critical Thinking Skills through Assessment

5790 руб.
I have not met an educator who enjoys having students regurgitate information without taking the time to internalise the given facts and arrive at their own conclusions after much analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Have you? Everyone wants a winner! All stakeholders see the need for critical thinkers. Most books and websites on critical thinking focus on its knots and bolts: what it is; what it is not; how you can teach it; do’s and don’ts; and how you can assess it. This book is different! It shows you how you can use assessment (that is accepted as compulsory in all courses/programmes) to hone critical thinking skills. Because everyone already accepts assessment it is easier to convince the greatest skeptic about the importance of critical thinking. The shared examples show how the critical thinking principles I have taught my students through the medium of assessment have enabled them to be enormously successful. This book is useful not only for teachers, parents, administrators, students and well wishers, but also for employers, government officials, and researchers who value the potential of their human resource and celebrate the contribution they can make in the workplace.

Understanding the economic paradigms at work in media industries and markets is vitally important for the analysis of the media system as a whole. The changing dynamics of media production, distribution and consumption are stretching the capacity of established economic paradigms. In addition to succinct accounts of neo-classical and critical political economics, the text offers fresh perspectives for understanding media drawn from two 'heterodox' approaches: institutional economics and evolutionary economics. Applying these paradigms to vital topics and case studies, Media Economics stresses the value – and limits – of contending economic approaches in understanding how the media operates today. It is essential reading for all students of Media and Communication Studies, and also those from Economics, Policy Studies, Business Studies and Marketing backgrounds who are studying the media.

Media Effects And Youth

5490 руб.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, media usage has both flourished and become a necessary part in the lives of people. During its development, many new tools emerged such as social media networks and video games which occupy the minds of the youth. Many companies come to realise that over time it would be a profitable business, so each rushed to be the number one contender for the lives of the youth. Currently, thousands of tools are available for the youth who are really interested in them. They only see the bright side of these tools but unfortunately they have no idea regarding the slow and imperceptible influence that is affecting them in the areas of health, social and personal affairs. This book therefore, contains a collection of empirical studies concerning the effects of different media tools on youth; these have shown how some media tools affect the lives of the youth and they provide the required solutions. This book should be useful to communications scholars, professionals, researches and teachers, or anyone else who may be interested in finding out more about this area of concern in order to avoid the negative impacts of this form of media.

Beyond Technology: Childrens Learning in the Age of Digital Culture offers a challenging new analysis of learning, young people and digital media. Disputing both utopian fantasies about the transformation of education and exaggerated fears about the corruption of childhood innocence, it offers a level–headed analysis of the impact of these new media on learning, drawing on a wide range of critical research. Buckingham argues that there is now a growing divide between the media–rich world of childrens lives outside school and their experiences of technology in the classroom. Bridging this divide, he suggests, will require more than superficial attempts to import technology into schools, or to combine education with digital entertainment. While debunking such fantasies of technological change, Buckingham also provides a constructive alternative, arguing that young people need to be equipped with a new form of digital literacy that is both critical and creative.Beyond Technology will be essential reading for all students of the media or education, as well as for teachers and other education professionals.

EIA is an exercise to be carried out before any project or major activity is undertaken to ensure that it will not in any way harm the environment on a short term or long term basis. Any developmental endeavor requires not only the analysis of the need of such a project, the monetary costs and benefits involved but most important, it requires a consideration and detailed assessment of the effect of a proposed development on the environment. The environment impact process was introduced with the purpose of identifying /evaluating the potential beneficial and adverse impacts of development projects on the environment, taking in to account environmental, social, cultural and aesthetic considerations. All of these considerations are critical to determine the viability of a project and to decide if a project should be granted environmental clearance.

1970 to 2013. In a little over four decades, Oman exemplifies phenomenal progress. The development has been the fruitful transition of a vision whose seeds were sown with the ascendance of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said on the throne. Particularly distinguishing is the ever increasing media scene in Oman. From a single newspaper in 1971 to the present multi-edition daily bilingual press, the presence of homegrown TV network and access to regional Arabic press besides global English media. This book is an attempt to critically analyze the working of the media institutions, platforms and the effects of their contents and practices. The book presents an assortment of research studies which reflect the native perspectives. The book is unique and is first in many ways. It is among the first books to contain studies carried out by the group which is the most frequent user and perhaps the most impacted media consumer section of the Omani society- the youth. Hopefully, this book will become a starting point for many more, exploring the nuances of access, consumption and effects of media on Omani society.

Self-regulation as a tool for media accountability

4839 руб.
Emerging trends indicate that self-regulation is the preferred model for promoting high journalism standards in democratic societies. The challenge, however, is that it presupposes some level of maturity in the professional ranks and a culture of respect for both peers and the society, which is not always the reality. In its quest to maintain high professional standards, the media fraternity in Kenya has adopted self-regulation as a tool for ensuring media accountability. While this approach has been instrumental, its effects still remain elusive. Based on a case study of the Media Council of Kenya, this book explores the effectiveness of self-regulation as a model of media accountability. The findings of the study reveal that the model is beset by lack of commitment by the media industry and public ignorance of the role of the media council, among other challenges. This book is suitable for researchers, policy makers and media professionals grappling with the question of media accountability in contemporary journalism.

This is a systematic and objective study of the effects of the Quality Assurance and Standards Officers assessment visits to secondary schools on the utilization of instructional media in the teaching of English subject and its performance a case of Uasin Gishu District in Kenya. It reveals that the Kenyan government policy entails allowing a broad based participation in the provision of education with all stakeholders taking responsibility for planning and implementation. In tandem with this policy direction is the decentralization of decision-making and resource management to lower level structures with Ministry of Education maintaining general oversight and overall superintendence. The findings demonstrate that the arrangement has resulted in major weaknesses in management and delivery of services particularly at the school level. Mechanisms to coordinate the various state agencies involved in the supervision and management of education are lacking and capacities of districts and school level structures that manage education services are inadequate particularly at the district and school level planning and reporting, assessment, monitoring and evaluation of resource management.
