Question and answer
Some people consciously decide to not own a television set. Do you think they are wise, or are they missing out? Why do you think so?
It?s no secret ? being a couch potato contributes to a lot of our current culture?s weight gain and poor health. I was surprised by some of the statistics I unearthed when I did research on this for my upcoming book. According to the U.S. [ Center for Disease Control: ?One-fourth of children in America spend four hours or more watching television daily and only 27 percent of students in
grades 9 through 12 engage in moderate physical activity at least 30 minutes a day on five or more days of the week.? Childhood obesity is a major problem; we all know this. One of the biggest links is the increase in screen time ? according to Norman Herr, professor of science education at California State University, the average child in America watches 1,680 minutes of television per week. That?s four hours per day. ]

User: Imagine a world without movies. What would it be like? How would culture and trends differ? Why?

User: YouTube could be called television of the future. Do you think YouTube and television are more alike or different? Why?





Weegy: I think YouTube and television are more of different than alike. This is due to the fact that on YouTube you can post videos that cannot be available on TV. [ There is also the fact that TV has many standards and rules as compared to YouTube which is freer. ]
