What News Have You Brought Us Today?

Messengers are known to have been attacked for delivering bad news to their bosses and everyday reporters get attacked in their line of duty when gathering newsworthy pieces of information on behalf of the general public. Journalism is the only profession in the whole world where the primary job of the employees is to dig up dirt on others. Well nobody likes being publicly exposed however nice a person they are by nature, when something unfavorable about them gets aired they are naturally inclined to retaliate, which could mean causing harm to the people that dug up dirt on them in the first place.

The downside of journalism is that a lot of news the reporters gather is always negative. When you turn on your TV to listen to the evening news, you are bombarded by an endless stream of bad news, so much misery and negativity is what fills the lives of these reporters. Some of those folks’ lives completely changed once they became news anchors. And for this same reason, most news anchors begin their careers as very happy and cheerful fellows but unfortunately retire very dull and gloomy. The negative and heart-wrenching stories they have been airing for decades really get onto them and start to affect their way of thinking. It affects the way they see the people around them and the world in general. The first people to notice these changes are the family members of those journalists. They come to realize that something inside their loved ones started to change from the moment they became journalists, be it either field correspondents, news anchors, or investigative journalists.

We are surrounded by a world filled with news of all kinds, the modern-day technologies bombard you with so much news in which you find it hard to distinguish facts from fiction. The word ”Fake News” is not a Trump’s invention. In fact many years before his coming into office, there was a growing mistrust by viewers towards the mainstream media, because some of the stories they aired turned out to be outright lies. His words only ignited the rage and dissatisfaction that had been boiling in the public’s hearts for many years. He touched an inflamed nerve and that was enough to bring forth what we now call ”Fake News Global Phenomenon”. Lying even for once is enough to damage the reputation of your media house. Even if you delivered a thousand accurate news and told just a single lie, that is all viewers need to turn away from you.

Now with the emergence of social media, the uncertainty is made even worse, anyone can post anything on social media and call it news. It’s a more volatile and dangerous world out there right now, the world in which the current generation is growing up is totally different from what the millennials and those previous generations grew up in. it’s a wild world out on the internet there, everyone, therefore, has to be careful with what they read or listen to. Because no one can really be trusted with news.

Bolton is paranoid about the media, he tries to make sense of what it really is, how it functions, its purpose, aims and goals in society, and how it has influenced him over the past decades, although he is very scared of finding himself in the media spotlight someday, at the same time he discovers a hidden edge, an important value the world owes the media.

The humanization of diversity and inclusion is a tough topic, but it’s important. This 30-day guide will help you get started by asking yourself some questions that may be on your mind when it comes to this complex issue like “What does humanizing really mean?” or even more challengingly  “Who are we without our differences?”. You’ll also learn how practicing empathy can go hand in glove with valuing someone else’s perspective so they feel seen as an individual rather than just another member within groups whose membership has been reduced down over time through natural selection processes which sometimes includes violence against those individuals who don’t fit into society expectations anymore.

Meet Gary Brackett

Gary Brackett was born with a love of competition and a will to win. By all accounts, he has already lived a life that most athletes (and even non-athletes) only dream of. If you know anything about football, it’s likely that you know his name. You may remember his impressive stats (he still holds the record for most individual tackles in a Super Bowl). But he is best known for his unwavering passion, unmatched energy and unrelenting work ethic that transformed this “underdog” into a Captain of a World Championship Team.   Since his “retirement” (from football), Brackett has continued tackling opportunities. After hanging up his jersey, he received his MBA from George Washington University and founded Brackett Restaurant Group.  During his time as a restaurateur, he realized the critical ingredients to success, as well as the potential pitfalls to avoid failure.  His own experience, coupled with his obsession with uncovering “hacks” and “secrets” of the world’s most successful leaders and businesses, lead him to create his own signature framework.  He uses the framework as a tool to guide his clients through actionable steps with measurable results.  His training helps clients align themselves with their vision, become crystal clear on their desired outcomes, and unlock the champions they are inside of their organizations.    Brackett has mentored and empowered thousands of small business owners and professionals to realize their value, maximize their potential, and begin to thrive in business and in life.

Guides FOR DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS

In the 21st century, it has become imperative that learners at all levels of education are armed with the technological skills needed for the next stage of their life. The majority of teachers believe that technology will kick them out of their jobs. No, teachers will always be drivers of knowledge and innovation but a driver of knowledge that does not know the road will drive the learners on a wrong path. The top-rated teachers are creative and innovative, loving, caring and they have empathy towards their learners. They are masters of subject matter, they facilitate learners’ growth in the three domains of learning, cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains through technology and other skills aforementioned. Today, there are many facets to classroom technology as concerned lesson delivery, text, video, games, simulations, and appropriate hardware and software to bring everything together. Different Learning Management systems bring part or all of this together which allows for great collaboration between the school, teachers, learners, parents, and the global education community. These platforms are either paid, free, or in-App purchases. It is not only the teachers that are creative, but the learners also do too and there must be a shift in the role of the teachers from content deliverer to the role of learning facilitator who guides the learners in the use of technology to create their learning. Classroom technology is not about the technology device(s) you have in your classroom, it is about making the most out of what is available.
