What is news, how does it affect you, and would you pay any attention to this news if you were not enrolled in CJ105 right now? Be specific in providing a recent example in the news in the past month.
I believe that news is a system of relaying information about what is going on around us. I personally do not pay much attention to news, in hopes to stay positive about the world around us. Some may think I am avoiding the situation, but it is how I choose to go about my days. I have lately paying more attention to news due to CJ 105 which is kind of opening my eyes again that not all news is bad news. So because of it I have been opening up to news more often. However I do see a lot of the bad news in which I would care to overlook, such as the wars going on over seas, and the crime that is so close to home.
An example: I am a professional water skier and was just offered the chance to go water ski in Lebanon for 10 days (Oct 5-15). At first I was totally excited and didn’t even think about anything bad going on overseas to make me change my mind. However when I started listening to the news closer and started doing some research of my own my decision to travel there as a large group of water skiing westerners I was quickly swayed.
