Extra credit
For this extra credit I went to the circ for the radical beauty display. I loved it! It showed things from what we think are beautiful like in the media. For example how magazines computerize faces and hair and everything! When really behind famous peoples pictures it’s just normal acne wrinkled women like everyone else. This is so sad causing younger women to feel ugly, even not normal. They also had a section where people we naked and all shapes and sizes, but happy and proud. For example I love the picture of two naked woman one skinny, one larger. They were both so happy and smiling. They were both beautiful. I also saw a picture of an overweight woman with words all over here like stereotype words such as lazy, careless, passive, undisciplined, insecure, giving, ect. Then the skinny woman next to her also had words like superficial, confident, mean, vain, ambitious, ect.... my favorite picture that I thought nailed this whole display on the head was the one where a girl asks "which bit would you alter first?" (As she is standing in front of mirror naked asking her mom). Then the mother says "the culture." loved it just shows how we are brain washed into what beauty really is. Not only brain washed about that but also the last picture that intrigued me was a naked picture of a transsexual person. First thought was wow he looks so normal to me. Then I stopped myself and said wait Kelsie why isn’t he normal?! Made me feel bad and like I was brain washed into what’s normal and attractive. Reminded me of Tobin’s journal and how he talks about all the different factors with sex. But really I just saw this man’s face first and I would have never guessed he was a transsexual. This display helped me realize how brain washed we can all be. This is sad but it can start at an early age with the media. What we think it’s beautiful, normal, or…...

...Liquid Crystal Display The LCD is used for the purpose of displaying the words which we are given in the program code. This code will be executed on microcontroller chip. By following the instructions in code the LCD display the related words. Fig.5.6 shows the LCD display. 5.3.1 Introduction [pic] Fig. 5.6: LCD Display The LCD display consists of two lines, 20 characters per line that is interfaced with the PIC16F73.The protocol (handshaking) for the display is as shown in Fig. The display contains two internal byte-wide registers, one for commands (RS=0) and the second for characters to be displayed (RS=1). It also contains a user-programmed RAM area (the character RAM) that can be programmed to generate any desired character that can be formed using a dot matrix. To distinguish between these two data areas, the hex command byte 80 will be used to signify that the display RAM address 00h will be chosen Port1 is used to furnish the command or data type, and ports 3.2 to 3.4 furnish register select and read/write levels. Theory A liquid crystal is a material (normally organic for LCDs) that will flow like a liquid but whose molecular structure has some properties normally associated with solids. The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is a low power device. The power requirement is typically in the order of microwatts for the LCD. However, an LCD requires an external or internal light source. It is limited to a temperature range of about 0°C to 60°C and......

Beauty on Display

...this paper is to explore the objectification of women in general; with an emphasis on beauty pageants and how the media interpretation of beauty has changed the woman's body image. Finding an exact definition of beauty is highly impossible, considering beauty is said to be have seen in the eye of the beholder. Unfortunately, in this metaphoric glass fish bowl life style; media, men, art, and fashion are the foremost most important holder. As customs, traditions and American habits expand, so does the true meaning of the word beauty. According to webster dictionary, beauty is defined as the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit. Since when does plastic surgery, sex appeal or an unhealthy size zero make up something that is beautiful. Beauty is no longer just a complement or self assessment, but a necessity tugging at a woman’s true identity. For many years the Miss American organization made a crucial understanding that beauty was not solely based the outward looks of a woman’s face and body, but how well the woman was educated, if she was physically healthy, if she could walk gracefully yet powerfully, and if she could take a stand for a greater cause other than having her nail color match her shoes. Prior to the Miss America pageant, women being placed on public display for the world to see was not fully accepted by society. The Miss America organization did a thorough job at......

The technology dominates the market, as it can be used in different types of applications, ranging from small devices including mobile phones to large appliances including televisions. ·PDP differs from LCD in that it does not need back light because it is self-luminous. Its use is limited to large applications such as televisions because the technology cannot be applied to small devices. It consumes more electricity than LCD. ·OLED is also self-luminous, and its use is limited to small devices such as mobile phones, as research is still underway to apply the technology to larger devices. OLED is lighter and consumes less electricity than LCD. It has great potential due to its simple structure and focus on materials, and it is praised as the foundation for flexible display, which is expected to lead the future. OLED is drawing......

...English 101 May 10, 2009 A Media Driven Society Raises Today’s Youth “Beep!” “Beep!” “Beep!”… Its 7 o’clock am, I rise to an alarm set to 94.5 where I hear the latest news and media gossip. I jump into the shower where I continue to catch up on the world’s news reports. My pre-set coffee brewer has coffee already prepared for an on-the-go person such as myself. I grab my laptop, cell phone, ipod, and jet off to work. After work I stop at a local café where I can pick up free wi-fi and sign in to my online classes. I email a few friends in the process of emailing a professor about the assigned paper. I can’t forget to check my facebook to catch up on the latest gossip while listening to lecture notes podcasted from the previous day. Once finished, I stop at the local grocery store to pick up dinner and while standing in line at the cashier I feel compelled to buy a magazine to keep up on the celebrity gossip and check out new poperotsy photos. On my way home a billboard advertising the new corona makes me stop at the local 7-elleven for a six-pack. I speed home to pop my tv dinner in the microwave and sip a beer. While I wait, I turn the television on and watch the news on one screen while watching another show on the split screen monitor. After a long day, I set the coffee pot, my alarm, plug the ipod, computer, and cell phone in to charge and lay my head on my pillow. As I close my eyes, I think of all the information I’ve seen, heard, and......

Primary Flight Display

...Report Currently I’ve been working on one gadget that belong to the Electronic flight instrument systems (EFIS) which is the primary flight display. This PFD will display the attitude and system control commands. Additionally it will be distributed in the following way. First, the attitude indicator will be displayed in the centre, this specifies the pitch, roll and stall angle of the aircraft. Second, at the left hand side the airspeed. This speed is measured in knots which are taken above mean sea level. Third at the right hand side the attitude indicator shown as numbers and next to it, the vertical attitude indicator which indicates how many feet per minute the aircraft is ascending. This V indicator illustrates in one or two unit number. For instance if is indicating number two (2) that means 2000 feet pre minute or 2 X 103 . There are some parts in the PFD that are going to be omitted, because some of the inputs are taken from other gadgets. For example: SPD: this allows the automatic pilot to take control of the velocity and other matters. CMD: indicates that the automatic pilot is on. Approach Reference: Displays the selected ILS identifier or frequency approach course and ILS DME distance. Glideslope and localizer Scales: appears when the previews frequency is in tune. At low altitudes and with the autopilot or flight director engage. Moreover, the package will have the functions or classes in order to enable these facilities if the other gadgets......

Types of Displays

...DIFFERENT TYPES OF DISPLAYS 1. Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT) Technology This technology has been in use for more than 100 years, and is found in most televisions and computer monitors. Beams of electrons, from an electron gun are projected towards the fluorescent screen, within a vacuum, and each time it hits the screen, a phosphor dot lights up inside the glass tube, and thus illuminating active protons of the screen. Repetitions through the screen form a complete image. The image colour depends on the intensity of the three beams of RED, BLUE and Green. The screen is usually made of thick glass to prevent the emitting of x-rays to the environment. The tube has high stress due to the presence of the vacuum which can cause an explosion if the outer glass was to break. These types of screens are very hard to recycle because they have high concentration of lead and phosphors 2. Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Technology This technology uses the light modulating properties of liquid crystals. This display uses two sheets of polarizing material with a liquid crystal solution between them (thus the name liquid crystal display). An electric current passed through the liquid causes the crystals to align so that light cannot pass through them, acting like a filter. The screen is then put in front of a light source in order to produce images. When light falls on a pixel on the screen, the pixel appears black but change in the amount of voltage flowing in each pixels results in varying......

...the media’s portrayal of sexuality affected your life? The effects of the media’s portrayal on sexuality on adolescent’s lives are vast. Most media in today’s society portrays acts of sexuality as commonplace and expected. It shows young girls being flirtatious and having sex. It shows young men as sexual predators or pressuring the girls. It is far and few between that a show displays age appropriate sexuality for it’s viewers. The media also represent’s young gays and lesbians more readily than it would have years ago. I think this is a good idea since that demographic of viewer base has increased greatly. This increased awareness for young people has both positive and negative impacts. The increased awareness of the effects of sexuality in early ages such as pregnancy and STD’s are more prevalent than in yester years. However, the increased stimuli of sexuality leads to more exploration of our younger generations to have sex earlier than they should be and producing babies at a younger age as well as they are contracting more STD’s. I think the media’s influence on our future generations needs to be tempered and that is the job of the parent or caregiver. The media’s portrayal of sexuality has not has as great an effect on my life as it could have as I do not watch much TV and tend to read more often than watch a movie. The media has more of an impact on those around me and influences me through them. My friends have an intense amount of pornography that they watch and......

...Through the technological development of electronic media and devices, access to entertainment media has become easier than ever before. In addition, these developments have led to an increase in the amount of time individuals spend watching and interacting with screen media, namely films, television and video games. As individuals in society display more aggressive behaviours in everyday life, researchers have endeavoured to identify the extent of how much violence portrayed in the media affects an individual’s thought, feelings and behaviours. While there is still debate as to whether there is a casual link between media and aggression, or that engaging with it maybe be cathartic, it has become evident that exposure to violence portrayed in the media can have short-term and long-term effects. This literature report will concentrate on reports and research focused on the influence of different types of media on aggression and the levels that these can be interpreted psychologically. Influences of Different Media on Aggression Exposure to violent media and the effect that this can have on an individual has been a topic that has interested researchers and society alike for decades. The likelihood of aggressive behaviour, thoughts and emotions is increased with short-term exposure to violent video games and films. (MVC 2012:337; Anderson 2004:2). Reasons provided for this increase by the Media Violence Commission (2012:337-8) and Myers (2013:378) is neural processes......

...Stratification Media Analysis by: Simone Walton The program’s title is ‘How I Met Your Mother’. It is a romantic comedy television series that aired from 2005 to 2014. The social theme that I will be discoursing is Sexism. The popular CBS television show How I Met Your Mother is currently off air. Through the example of this show and the lens of ideology, I argue that How I Met Your Mother has a sexist ideology that supports the stereotypes that women are stupid, easily manipulated, and “crazy”, especially when there is a man in her life. I argue that this sexist way of seeing the world is counterproductive to gender equality and promotes simplistic stereotypes of women that are widely accepted by the audience because these stereotypes are packaged as jokes that make the show and specifically the character Barney Stinson, funny and popular. Ideological analysis focuses on “how the elite have legitimatized their interests, specifically through the enactment of posturing their political necessities as natural, universal, and immune to history, thereby insulating the social order against change”. In this example the elite are men and their interests (particularly the interest of Barney) are presented as winning women over through manipulation in order to have sex with them. How I Met Your Mother runs on the assumption of the world that women are emotionally unstable, especially in relationships. There are many examples of the main character Ted dating women who turn out to......

Product Display

...Sales Management Keywords: sales promotion, planned purchases, unplanned purchases, impulse purchases, POP-displays Abstract We report the findings of an exploratory study on the interaction between buying behavior style and product presentation. The results, which are compatible with findings from other studies, offer support for our approach that the effectiveness of display usage is moderated by the type of product under promotion. Using observational data we find that the impulsive power and therewith promotional efficiency depends on the type of underlying product specific buying behavior. As our findings show, displays are more effective in influencing purchase behavior when used with impulsively bought products. The question to which extend other categories should be considered for display promotion needs careful evaluation. With product categories bought routinely, other than display-based forms of promotion seem to be more promising strategies with regard to promotional efficiency. Introduction Sales promotions cover a wide spectrum of activities to influence consumers to make a purchase. Especially monetary promotions like price-offs, rebates or coupons, are heavily used in this context, and their effects have received considerable attention in research (Darke 2001; Tellis 1998, p. 218). Among non-monetary approaches to influencing purchase behavior at the POP, displays are frequently used (Rossiter & Percy 1997, p. 391; Tellis 1998, p. 235; Sullivan & Adcock 2002,......

...Media  Topic 1: Explanations of Media Influences on Antisocial Behaviour  Observational Learning  Where individuals observe and imitate the behaviour of others. Many argue that watching television  can teach viewers violent behaviour/draw their attention to behaviours they wouldn’t have  previously considered.  Bandura (1983) used his Social Learning Theory to explain this. Watching violent role models may  increase violent behaviour in those who are already motivated to behave aggressively. TV may also  teach viewers the positive and negative consequences of behaving aggressively.   Research on the role of observational learning from media in antisocial behaviour has shown:  ‐ Bandura et al (1986):  Children aged 3‐5 were shown films of a model behaving aggressively towards a “bobo doll”. The  doll was hit, thrown, sat on and punched in the nose 3 times during the film. The children were then  lead to laboratory containing toys (including the bobo doll), and were observed during free play. 88%  of the children imitated the behaviour seen in the film‐ significantly more than a control group of  children who did not see the film.  ‐ Bobo dolls do not retaliate when hit. This raises questions as to how much this study tells us about  the effect of media influences on antisocial behaviour towards other human beings.   ‐ Smith et al (2004): The children’s behave would be better defined as “rough and tumble play”  rather than aggression.  ‐ Some have labelled B......

Visual Merchandising: P.O.P. Displays

...Visual Merchandising: P.O.P. Displays Visual Merchandising is the method of displaying products in a store that will entice a consumer to buy. “POP display” is short for point of purchase display. A point of purchase display can catch the attention of prospective consumers. For as long as humans have been selling things to each other, there has been a need for point of purchase displays. Over the centuries, the vendor, the peddler, the hawker, all have needed to display their products to consumers. POP displays are all about point of purchase displays that are types of marketing and advertising techniques or ad campaigns that boost the marketability of the goods close to which they are placed. The reputation of an item is dependent upon its advertising and marketing strategies. The benefit that promotion provides to any product is its brand name value that becomes the identity of the product or service. By the twelfth century, shops in major European cities were well established. Traffic in bazaars and shops was important and early retailers just like today's retailers, needed to display the goods offered. Logically in an age before mass production, there were few consumer goods to promote. Nevertheless, food, clothing, footwear, furniture and cooking utensils were the essentials of life and for those who could afford them bought in shops. During the nineteenth century's industrial revolution, a wider variety of goods became readily available. Signs, posters and means of......
