Numerous studies suggest the US media have been too uncritical in their coverage of the Bush Administration’s policies implemented in response to the events of…Continue

“Terrorism” is a term that cannot be given a stable definition. Or rather, it can, but to do so forestalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organizing ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing definitions, accounts and explanations of terrorism.
In proposed research which is divided is divided in…Continue

From time immemorial, scientists conducted experiments on animals. For example, in 1880, Louis Pasteur proved the microbial nature of certain diseases by artificially causing anthrax in a sheep.

But despite the experiments, there were people who tried to fight for animal rights. And by the beginning of the 21st…Continue

Four a.m. Seated in front of the computer. I am just from bed, where I had been tossing and turning for hours, looking for sleep that was seriously evading me like the plague. This is not the first time. I should honestly sit it down and have a mature conversation. We can’t go into the new year with this dispute still ongoing. Anyway, maybe I should thank sleep for playing so hard to get because now, here I am, writing. Here I am sharing what’s on my mind with you, hoping that you…Continue

If somebody would ask me about my government preference way back, I would have questioned why our country has a Democratic type of government. Why not a monarchial one? With princesses, big gowns, and horses. I was very…
