Week 5 Discussion Question

Breanna I
News can be a number of things. “Did you hear that my sister is engaged?” Or on a much larger national scale, “Did you hear about what happened to the US ambassador?” News is a large part of our daily lives. Did you notice how my previous two questions both started with ‘did you hear…’? News is a huge source of daily conversation. I personally don’t go out of my way to watch the news on TV or go to an online news source, however news is an unavoidable part of everyday conversation and daily communication. Recently I was playing with the BMB for the Vice Presidential speech. We were supposed to play inside Zorn as well as outside but at the last minute we got the news about the death of the US ambassador and because of this they wanted a more somber atmosphere inside and asked us not to play. This is a good example of how news is relevant in our everyday lives even if we don’t go seeking it out for ourselves.

    I like your example; it demonstrated the side-effects of news. I’m sorry that you couldn’t play. I don’t think that you need to change a thing with this post. Great work.

    This is a good example of how news can affect us, and how one news event can change a day. News is a huge part of our lives whether we accept it or not. This is a good explanation.

    Communication is crazy these days; Crazy in the sense that events that happen half-way around the world affect us. I suppose there is some good and some bad that results from that. News can “rain on our parade”, cause us to celebrate, and in this case show respect for individuals that are no longer with us. Great example of how news personally affected you.
