introductory paragraph of the impact of the internet on politics
The Internet and emerging technologies have made a profound impact on Presidential campaigns. Online campaigning has revolutionized political communication, grassroots activism, supporter outreach, and fundraising. [ Ten years ago, the Internet was barely used in politics; today it is an innovative, informative, interactive, and a creative tool that transformed Presidential campaigning. In the
Internet’s early years, most users were academics, military, or technology enthusiasts; today, the Internet is a common part of American life and has gone mainstream. Since the mid-1990s, the Internet has been the fastest growing resource in American politics. With more than 55 percent of Americans utilizing the Internet frequently, and nearly 70 percent having Internet access, campaigns are investing millions of dollars into developing websites and emerging technologies to reach supporters, target voters, shape public opinion, and raise funds.1 In recent years, advances in high-speed Internet access and price decreases, low price dial-up Internet access, and growth in home computer ownership, have increased Internet usage. High-speed Internet, for example, enables people to look for information faster and perform more complex online tasks without tying up a telephone line. The use of high-speed broadband is also increasing overall ]

Write a thesis sentence stating how and why the music value extends beyond entertainment value. The thesis must include why it is a legitimate form of popular culture. Keep in mind factors such as influence and controversy.
Weegy: For most of us, particularly in the media business, the word “entertainment,” is synonymous with content: movies, television programs, music, books, and the like. The better the content, the more “entertaining” it is. [ However, a new study released today highlights that the majority of consumers now have a different definition of entertainment, one that extends beyond content to include interactions that they have via social networking sites. Given this, publishers need to reevaluate the business they are in. In a world of Publishing 2.0, we are in the audience business, not the content business. Today, Edelman released summary findings of its fourth annual Trust in the Entertainment Industry study. The notable highlight is that over 70% of people 18-34 in the U.S. consider social networking to be a form of entertainment. Over the past year, Edelman found a significant rise in the number of people who consider the web a source of entertainment; in 2010 the Internet surpassed movies and is now second only to TV. Additionally, out of all of the entertainment categories, social networking scored the highest in perceived value, with 40% of U.S. respondents saying that it offers excellent or very good value. This highlights how the entertainment sector is undergoing an experience revolution, with consumers revealing that not only is social networking displacing traditional media as a significant mode of entertainment; but that they appreciate that social networking provides better value than other options. The implications for publishers are clear: by creating compelling, interactive experiences for consumers, we not only get them more deeply engaged but can also increase their perception of our value. ] (More)

Write a 250- to 350-word introductory paragraph, which includes points that would be used in a paper to support music thesis statement.
Weegy: When you’ve chosen your topic, picked a music thesis statement and focus, and gotten all of these approved, the most important thing is to make sure you give yourself enough time to do a thorough job and enjoy the paper. [ If your degree is not a fine arts degree, then chances are you enjoy music to the point that you truly enjoy knowing and finding out everything you can. If you chose a subject that interests you, then give yourself time to enjoy it. Start early. As early as possible. Document everything as you go along, making copies as needed. There’s nothing worse than having a great piece of information that you can’t use because you can’t find the documentation. Even worse than that is wasting hours in search of that documentation – whether you find it again or not. In any case, you’ll need a bibliography for your music thesis and you might as well create it along the way so that you’ll have one less thing to do when it comes time to do the final polishing and turn it in. When you’ve finished researching, lock yourself away as if you were creating a great piece of music yourself. You will need all the space you can get to create a cohesive piece out of all the information you’ve gathered together. Don’t let anyone see it until you have finished a complete first draft, left it alone, and come back to edit it at least once. You don’t want to bring in the critical eye of another until you’ve had enough time to get a solid grasp on what it is that you want to accomplish with your music thesis. This understanding may not come until the very end, so give it time. And enjoy ] (More)

in atleast 100 words answer , What are the primary roles of media delivering news to the public?
Weegy: Independent media play a critical role in building and sustaining democracies, societies, and economies around the world. They provide citizens with the information necessary to make informed political and economic choices. [ Independent media give voice to women, youth, and minorities, along with dissident political opinions. They also improve communities by providing citizens with important information on health, the environment, and rural development, and help people prevent and respond to disasters. Advances in technology have allowed media to deliver news and information to growing numbers of people and to share stories as they occur across the street and around the world. The spread of the telegraph system enabled foreign correspondents to file their stories in hours rather than weeks. Radio broadcasts brought the sounds of the world into people’s living rooms and provided real-time reporting of events as they unfolded. The arrival of television allowed people to see what they could only imagine previously. Cable and satellite technology created even more opportunities for people to be connected. The ability to share information and images across national boundaries played an important role in the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. CNN, started in 1980 by Ted Turner, broadcast to world viewers the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Empire in 1991. As Glenn Baker of the Center for Defense Information wrote in the script for “The ‘CNN Effect’: TV and Foreign Policy,” “Thanks to satellites and instant global communications, TV images of the celebration circulated around the world. In the wake of the Soviet breakup, popular revolts brought down one communist government after another in Eastern Europe, news pictures of one uprising inspiring the next. Computers, fax machines, video cassettes, and pervasive media coverage provided the means for ordinary citizens to share ideas in ways that totalitarian governments ... (More)

5. Describe the importance of ethical and legal compliance in online interactions.
Weegy: Business ethics are the principles to be followed in the work place and provide for honesty, justice and fairness in carrying out all of the business activities. [ In a legal environment, there are ethics and virtues which guide every member of that organization. Some commonly followed ethics include ability, or being competent in one’s job and acceptance, which is making the best of a dire situation. Other ethical behaviors include being honest, humble and independent in getting things accomplished. Integrity, loyalty and trustworthiness are other important virtues. Justice means treating others fairly and must be practiced to enhance a proper relationship between all the employees as well as between top management. Employees also need to be tough in their positions and be able to fulfill their responsibilities. When these organizational ethics and virtues are not followed, one might find oneself in an ethical dilemma. ] (More)
