This is for speech class. PLEASE Read THE INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY.
There are two parts. First, you need to fill the SPEECH OUTLINE file I have uploaded for you. The format should be exactly like the file just fill in whatever the professor asked. The second part is that you need to write a two page speech . The two page speech should follow the OUTLINE STEP BY STEP. you just need to explain the MAIN POINTS MORE. I need to give a 3 minute speech so I am going to read the paper you wrote to my professor. ( NOTE: THE PAPER YOU WRITE NEED TO EXACTLY FOLLOW THE SPEECH OUTLINE you filled. JUST you need to explain more each of the MAIN POINTS).
Please read the instruction FILE on what you need to write. choose three object and upload me the pictures of them so I can show in my speech .
A little bit about me : I am a college student currently. I used to live in EGYPT. I was born there. Currently I am living here in Los Angeles. I am attending college full time and my major is Mechanical engineering. Currenly, I workout alot. I GO TO GYm. About my future, I want to be a mechanical engineer.
If you have questions let me know. For the objects, I thought maybe for my past we can choose a car toy to show that I loved playing with cars. For present we can choose dumbells to show that i workout. For future maybe you can choose something that related to mechanical engineer. This is just my idea please use whatever you think is best.

The goal of this assignment is to apply the knowledge learned in the course, to

The goal of this assignment is to apply the knowledge learned in the course, to exhibit a deep
familiarity with the learned material in lectures, recitations, and in the reading materials. The
assignment is based on all the material learned in the course throughout the semester in the lectures,
recitations, and in the reading list attached at the end of the instructions (the readings can be found
on the course website within the folders for the specific weeks in which they were assigned).
The assignment includes two parts. You must answer both parts, following the instructions for each
part. Answer only the number of questions detailed for each part of the assignment – if you
answer more than the specified number, only the required number of answers will be graded and the
rest will be ignored.
The assignment must be submitted in Word format only. Do not submit the paper in PDF
format. The assignment must be submitted in the separate answer file (attached). The entire
assignment must be typed using Times New Roman 12-point font. If you use external sources in the
paper, make sure to also attach a reference list in APA style. If you use any artificial intelligence
(AI) application/program in completing the assignment, you must attach an appendix detailing
which applications/programs you used, how they were used, and how the information obtained from
them has been incorporated into the submitted assignment. The reference list and appendix will not
count as part of the page limitation for the assignment. Violation of the instructions will result in a
grade deduction.
The assignment may be submitted either individually or in groups of two students (but no more than
two students per group). The ID numbers of all student writers and the names of the relevant
teaching assistants should be written on the first page. The paper’s grade will constitute 70% of
the final course grade. Any suspicion of academic dishonesty or plagiarism will be reported to
the Reichman University Disciplinary Committee.
The assignment must be submitted by Thursday, February 22, 2024 at 23:59 on the course
website, in the dedicated folder. Late assignments will not be accepted nor graded.
Part 1: Media exemplification of central theoretical concepts
Choose five of the seven (1-7) theoretical concepts below (8 points per concept).
For each concept you choose, exemplify it with an English online newspaper article (NOT a social
network site post, independent blog, or video clip but a print online newspaper article only). You
can choose a different article for each concept. All the newspaper articles brought as examples in
this section need to be only from 2023. Provide a link or print screen image of the article in the
assignment.
Each concept exemplification will be written in no more than seven lines on the form provided.
Each concept exemplification should include the definition of the concept and an explanation of
how the article exemplifies the theoretical concept. Note that some concepts are content-based (that
is, they can be “found” in the content of the news article itself) but other concepts might require you
to hypothesize about the process of how the content will impact the audience – for these concepts,
make sure the explanation is clear and linked to the theory as learned in the course. Make sure to
address all concepts and arguments in consistency with how they were taught in this course! The concepts are: 1) Resonance with the symbolic reality as in the spirit of cultivation theory 2) Transfer of salience in the spirit of agenda setting theory 3) Majority opinion as expressed by the media in the spirit of spiral of silence theory 4) Arts as a commodity in the spirit of the Frankfurt School 5) Elite-serving messages in media content in the spirit of political-economy theory
6) Thematic framing in the spirit of framing theory 7) Technical code in the spirit of the cultural-critical approach Part 2: Theoretical application to a media example
Choose two of the three (8-10) application exercises below (30 points per exercise).
For each exercise you choose, analyze a media example using the theoretical framework as taught
in the course. Each exercise should be written within the allotted space on the form provided.
Each exercise should discuss the theory’s central concepts and main assumptions (make sure to
define each concept and assumption clearly and to apply it well). When relevant, link the analysis to
the theory’s paradigm (again, make sure to define all theoretical concepts and apply them clearly).
Make sure to write complete arguments in essay format (that is, not in bullet points). When
relevant, use the course assigned readings to inform your arguments. The application exercises are: 8) An Internet meme is “a cultural item (such as an idea, behaviour, or style) that is spread via
the Internet, often through social media platforms. Internet memes can take various forms,
such as images videos, GIFs, and various other viral sensations. Characteristics of memes
include their susceptibility to parody, their use of intertextuality, their propagation in a viral
pattern, and their evolution over time. . . Memes are considered an important part of Internet
culture. . . They appear in a range of contexts, such as marketing, economics, finance,
politics, social movements, religion, and healthcare” (Wikipedia, a non-credible source).
Think of a meme which you recently encountered on the Internet, preferably within the past
year. Briefly describe the meme. On the basis of uses and gratifications theory, as learned in
the course, discuss your engagement with the meme. Address issues that reflect your
audience activity relative to the meme, including your decision to share/not to share the
meme, why you chose to do (or not to do) so, with whom did you share the meme, how you
shared the meme, what were you hoping to achieve by sharing the meme, what you feel you
obtained from sharing the meme. Remember that your answer should exhibit a deep and
thorough understanding of the theory, its central concepts and basic assumptions, its relation
to a theoretical paradigm, etc. 9) Choose an episode from a recent television series (preferably an episode that aired within
the past year) which presented a social behavior that audiences could have learned through a
social learning process. Briefly describe the series and the social behavior portrayed in the
episode. On the basis of social learning (cognitive) theory, as learned in the course, discuss
a possible audience effects process that could potentially have followed exposure to this
episode and the portrayed social behavior. Make sure to address all the central social
learning steps and exemplify them through the content. Make sure to explain the cognitive
elements involved in the social learning process you discuss. Remember that your answer
should exhibit a deep and thorough understanding of the theory, its central concepts and
basic assumptions, its relation to a theoretical paradigm, etc. 10) A moral panic is “a widespread feeling of fear, often an irrational one, that some evil person
or thing threatens the values, interests, or well-being of a community or society” (Wikipedia,
a non-credible source). Moral panics have often been associated with, or attributed to, media
technologies, genres, or content. Choose one recent media technology/genre/content
(preferably that has been relevant in the past year) that you think can lead to or has been
associated with a media moral panic. Explain the technology/genre/content you chose and
why you think it lends itself to a media panic. On the basis of the powerful media effects
paradigm, discuss what is the possible media effect likely to result from exposure to or use
of this technology/genre/content. Analyze this media effect using the categorizations of
media effects learned in the course. Explain each decision you make in describing this
potential media effect, using the concepts and basic assumptions of the powerful media
effects paradigm. Reading list: Adorno, T. W., & Rabinach, A. G. (1975). Culture industry reconsidered. New German Critique, 6,

“Israel Hayoum Law” – The Ethical dilema: Your final assignment involves an in-d

“Israel Hayoum Law” – The Ethical dilema:
Your final assignment involves an in-depth exploration of the “Yisrael Hayom” law, proposed in 2014, officially titled the “Law for the Advancement and Protection of Print Journalism in Israel,” commonly known as the “Israel Hayom Law.” The assignment is structured into four key questions:
Understanding the Israel Hayom LawProvide a comprehensive overview of the Israel Hayom Law, including details such as when it was proposed, the individuals or entities behind its proposal, and the motivations driving its introduction.
Examine the impact of the law on the Israeli political landscape and delve into the events triggered by its proposal.
Arguing Against the LawPresent a well-structured argument highlighting why the Israel Hayom Law is perceived as unethical, drawing insights from the form of journalism practiced in Israel, particularly the social responsibility form (refer to the first online lecture document).
Evaluate opposing perspectives, validating arguments against the law while critically analyzing the agendas of those who contested it.
Explore how the law poses a potential threat to democracy and discuss the possible consequences it may lead to.
Arguing in Favor of the LawArticulate reasons supporting the Israel Hayom Law, emphasizing its role in fostering ethical journalism within a democratic capitalist society.
Investigate the motivations behind the bill’s formation, scrutinizing the stated agenda versus the underlying motivations, and form an informed opinion in support of the law.
Assess how the proposed law contributes to safeguarding democracy, considering the essence of Western and Israeli democratic values.
Proposing a Better Legal FrameworkPut forth suggestions for an improved legal framework, alternative legislation, or specific regulations/policies that could better safeguard the democratic press in Israel.
Ensure your proposal addresses the shortcomings of the Israel Hayom Law and aligns with the principles of ethical journalism and democratic values in modern age – in other words – feel free to be creative.

ISRAEL HAYOUM – a different animal – launched by Sheldon Adelson in 2007 and described by Nahum Barnea (Israeli Journalist) as the biggest election gift ever it is a free daily with a massive circulation in its 7 year of existence. Nicknamed the Bibiton.
What is the Israel Hayom law that the Knesset passed in a preliminary vote on Wednesday?
The “law for the advancement and protection of written journalism in Israel” is more widely known as the “Israel Hayom law” and would more accurately be called “the law to limit Sheldon Adelson’s influence.” The law, proposed by MK Eitan Cabel (Knesset) and sponsored by members of five other Knesset parties, would make it illegal to widely distribute a full-size newspaper free of charge.
The law’s stated intention is to “defend written journalism” in a period of financial hardship for newspapers in Israel (Maariv closed down, Haaretz on its way) . It doesn’t mention any paper by name, but only Israel Hayom fits its requirements.
THE LAW’S UNSTATED INTENTION: An anti Bibi/Adelson law many would argue that was widely supported across the board by many from within his coalition. This is not a right wing newspaper per say that just purports right wing ideology – this is a paper that came out against many of Netanyahu’s competitors, party members etc. Regardless of their ideology or platform rather more if they posed a threat to the PM. It came out after Bennet, after Lieberman etc. Why are the law’s supporters going after Israel Hayom?
Aside from the official reason of creating fair competition in the Israeli newspaper industry, there are political and commercial considerations at work. Israel Hayom has had one agenda since it first appeared in 2007 — Benjamin Netanyahu. It supported his candidacy for prime minister, and since his reelection in 2009, it has been slavishly pushing his policies and defending him and his family from criticism.
The law is being sponsored by members of rival parties to Netanyahu’s Likud, from the right and left, both coalition and opposition members. Even Netanyahu’s senior ministers have attacked the paper; Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called it “Pravda” and Economics Minister Naftali Bennett described it as “a mouthpiece of one man.” In its support for Netanyahu, Israel Hayom has created enemies across the political spectrum who are eager to clip its wings.
——————————————————————————————————
they reserve their most vicious editorial attacks for anyone who dares to disagree with or criticize Netanyahu and the government. I wouldn’t say that they do that at the expense of the truth, but the journalists who work there know that they have to tow a particular editorial line in anything that touches the government. There isn’t even a pretense of objectivity. And that makes them very, very different to any other paper in Israel. It’s known as the “Bibiton” which is Hebrew for sort of “Bibi” news and –
Nachum Barnea, who’s an award-winning Israeli columnist. He described the paper which was launched just before the last election as “the biggest election gift ever given in Israel.” If you remember, Natanyahu was elected by a knife edge, so any slight swing in the vote there was extremely important.
The other thing about Israel is that the standard of living here is much, much lower than it is in the States, and so, an expenditure on a daily newspaper is much, much higher proportionally, since salaries are about a third of what they are in the States. If someone’s giving you a newspaper for nothing, instead of one that you have to pay for, then it’s gonna be very attractive to you. And once you start reading it, then there’s more than likely possibility that it’s going to start to inform your political views. ————————————————————————————————–
The freesheet swiftly became the newspaper with the highest public exposure in Israel, upsetting the monopoly of the top-selling tabloid Yedioth Ahronoth. Israel Hayom has accused Yedioth’s publisher, Arnon “Noni” Mozes, of orchestrating the law through MKs who receive preferential treatment from Mozes’ paper and its popular website Ynet, in the interest of reestablishing his predominance in Israeli media. For months now, the paper has been running a campaign portraying Mozes as a puppeteer pulling the strings of the politicians in “Noni’s evil empire.”
Mozes, who never gives interviews, has not responded to these accusations. The MKs sponsoring the law have denied they are doing Mozes’ bidding.
Why does Adelson need a newspaper?
Adelson, who made his first fortune from computer-industry conventions and then reaped billions from his mega-casino and hotel complexes in the United States and Far East, has no major business holdings in Israel and never invested in the media in the past. At a conference just this Sunday he even said “I don’t like journalism.” He does, however, have a keen interest in politics in his native United States and in Israel (of which he isn’t a citizen, though his second wife Miri is).
In the United States he has plowed an estimated $150 million through super PACs to fund presidential and congressional campaigns of Republicans he favors, but political funding laws in Israel allow individuals and corporations to contribute only relatively small sums.
Adelson, who holds far-right political views and has known and supported Netanyahu for over two decades, founded Israel Hayom as his own personal loophole to do in Israel what he has been doing in the United States. The paper’s financial statements remain a closely guarded secret, but Israeli media experts believe he has spent at least $50 million to date.
In interviews, Adelson has denied that Israel Hayom is a “Bibiton” — a moniker combining Netanyahu’s nickname and the Hebrew word for newspaper. He says the paper was created to balance the “far-left” agenda of Yedioth and other Israeli media. (Not true – goes out against
Bennet/Lieberman/internal likud competitors).
Adelson’s MO and his paper’s coverage of Netanyahu suggest otherwise. Israel Hayom was founded on the (not totally unfounded) belief that the Israeli media are out to get Netanyahu and the only way he can govern is by having his own media.
Would the new law harm Israel Hayom?
The freesheet has been running a campaign accusing the law and its supporters of trying to shut it down. This is disingenuous. By forcing them to charge readers even a small price, readership will go down, but whatever that may do the paper’s revenues it is immaterial as the paper is operating at a loss anyway that Adelson has no problem covering using his private fortune. Israel Hayom can continue to operate despite the law as long as Adelson continues to bankroll it.
Their real issue is that the law would drastically limit the paper’s exposure. Israel Hayom rarely publishes scoops, seldom receives high-profile exclusive interviews and has very few must-read columnists by any standard. Its one attraction is that it’s free of charge.
But its publishers are no fools; they’re fully aware that if it were a paid product, it would be likely to be bought by very few Israelis — as it is, print journalism is on the decline. Denying it this advantage would deny Adelson the influence and support he hoped to buy for Netanyahu in funding the paper.
What’s wrong with the law?
There are two major problems with Israel Hayom law. First, no law should be targeted at a single individual or company. The crude way the proposal has been tailored for this one freesheet highlights the political and commercial motivations behind it.
Second, any law that seeks to impose limits on a media organization carries inherent dangers. Legislation against one newspaper, as problematic as it is per se, creates a perilous precedent for Israeli democracy. (where else did this happen? Germany – find examples as to how)
There are counterarguments in favor, of course. For a start, Israel Hayom as a loss-making, mass-distributed, one-politician-supporting freesheet is not a real newspaper in many senses. Its supporters claim that it operates on the business model of freesheets around the world, but this is patently untrue. Those free papers, with their tiny editorial budgets, are meant solely as vehicles for advertisement — and to while away a few minutes on the daily commute.
Adelson’s billions, on the other hand, have financed a full staff of journalists (in itself a good thing) whose sole aim is to create a pro-Netanyahu publication that resembles an attractive and professional newspaper. While this may or may not have been an intended result, it is jeopardizing the existence of rivals that lack the capacity to sustain large losses. Still, targeted legislation should not be the solution.
Are there other ways in which Israel Hayom should be challenged?
Adelson’s newspaper is thinly disguised mega-campaign funding. The regulators of political finance, especially the state comptroller, should have stepped in long ago to close this loophole. Flooding the market with a free product and undercutting competitors by offering cut-price advertising space is ruining competition in what is already an increasingly fragile print-media market.
The Antitrust Authority should be looking into that. For whatever reasons (and which state agency would rush to investigate a company owned by the prime minister’s chief patron?) the relevant authorities seem to have made no attempt to enquire whether Israel Hayom is breaking any laws, let alone try to regulate them.
In the absence of any regulation or enforcement necessary to create a more level playing-field both in politics and the media, this anti-Adelson law was born. It’s a bad law can be argued, but more than that, it’s a symptom of the weakness of Israeli democracy.

The purpose of this paper is for you to discuss the relationship between amateur

The purpose of this paper is for you to discuss the relationship between amateur media practices and productions in relation to larger dominant forms conventionally deemed ‘professional,’ and to discuss what is at stake in the production of amateur works (as well as how that label is constructed, and what it entails).
To do this, you are to select a particular media item, process, practice, and/or form and detail its broader importance and significance in relation to ‘the archive,’ grand narratives of the nation state, and/or generally memory/events not normally highlighted by traditional culture industries. Though our conversation has thus far focused on home videos and film, you are encouraged to discuss other media forms including zines, radio broadcast, journals, photographs, scrapbooking, oral storytelling and traditions, songs/music and poetry, other forms of art and technologies (videos, cassettes, i.e. the analog) that mediate and memorialize history and events through means not conventionally regarded as professional (explain why, and include a scholarly reference to explain this).
