My topic is 

participating in the evolution of international law..

geog207—–Wiki Project—at least 750 words—–sbian

The main theme for my group is Geopoliitcal Framework

There is two members in my group, therefore just divide this main theme into two topics as determined by the breadth of the theme

 

You will then divide this main theme into several topics as determined by the breadth of the theme (a good place to start would be looking at the key concepts that are covered throughout the chapters in our textbook, though you will need to go beyond this).  As a group, you will collectively research our coverage of this theme (and related topics) in the course materials in order to craft a coherent and informative group Wiki (i.e. a Wikipedia-style article).  Each group must compare these dynamics across at least 3 geographical regions in their Wiki (*Note:  do not simply compare three individual countries).

Do not simply rephrase and regurgitate what is stated in the book — and of course, do not under any circumstances copy and paste the text.  You need to process the information, synthesize it, and use your own words and voice to teach your classmates about this particular topic.  It may be helpful for you to start out with an outline as a group, assign certain topics/sections to each member, and then add flesh to the outline as you dig a little deeper into the readings.

A brief discussion of how this might work:

Your group was assigned the fictional theme of “World Sports,” which you then divided into three main subtopics:  World Sports and Globalization, World Sports and Gender, and World Sports and Culture based on how the theme of “World Sports” has been discussed throughout the chapters in your textbook.  Your classmate, John, agrees to cover World Sports and Globalization.  He would then scour the textbook for any mention of sports and globalization, business, marketing, media, and other relevant dynamics that are brought up throughout the text — starting perhaps with the Subject Index (in the back), Table of Contents, etc.  Now John’s job is to gather this information, process it, and begin writing a coherent entry for your Wiki page that deals with the topic of Sports and Globalization in general terms as a process occurring around the world.  However, don’t forget:  each group needs to work in specific details and examples comparing dynamics related to their main theme across at least 3 regions; so, after discussing the topic generally, John might next discuss more in-depth the global marketing efforts of the U.S.-based NBA and how it has increased the popularity of basketball dramatically in Europe and East Asia.

Below is Sample:

A brief illustration of what this might look:

Wiki Project Group 6 Theme:  World Sports

I. World Sports and Globalization

Like many social and economic facets of life, sports have also been impacted dramatically by globalization.  While there are still several sports that are popular in particular regions — like gridiron (“American)” football in North America — there are also many sports that can be considered “world sports” by virtue of the fact that they are played and watched by millions across the globe.  Soccer (or “football”) is perhaps the best example of a truly global sport, as it is enjoyed by billions on nearly every corner of the globe.  International bodies govern the sport under the umbrella of FIFA, which hosts what is perhaps the most watched sporting even in the world every four years:  the World Cup.  Even regional club teams have become global “brands” due to the widespread use of internet and satellite technology allowing fans to cheer on teams like Manchester United from London to South Africa.  Soccer is considered a national past-time throughout the globe.

In Latin America, soccer is followed almost religiously by fans, and some of the world’s best players hail from this region.  During the World Cup, South American teams such as Argentina and Brazil are regulars in the final rounds of the tournament, while Latin American players such as Lionel Messi have become household names throughout the world.

In Europe, the dynamics are very similar, as soccer is widely considered the most popular sport across the continent.  Many of the world’s most prestigious club teams are located in Europe; teams such as Bayern Munich (Germany), Manchester United (UK), Barcelona (Spain), Paris Saint-Germain (France), and Juventus (Italy) regularly make the European-wide tournament called the UEFA Champions League, with fans watching their matches across the globe.

While soccer is undoubtedly a global sport beloved in every country, it has not yet reached these same feverish levels of devotion in North America, though the sport is growing by leaps and bounds in this region.  Since the United States hosted the men’s World Cup tournament in 1994, the US has formed its own professional soccer league (the MLS) which has quickly become a popular and profitable league and is now drawing players from outside of the region.  The US has also most recently hosted the 2016 Copa America, featuring teams from Latin America, the Caribbean, South America, and North America.  While the men’s national teams in the region have not yet reached the same levels of success as their European and Latin American counterparts, the US and Canadian Women’s national teams have each reached the pinnacle of the sport, earning championship berths in multiple World Cup finals.  Thanks in part to access to an increasingly global pool of talent and North Americans’ access to globalized media, soccer is one of the fastest growing sports on the continent.

Basketball, once a predominantly American sport, has also seen its fan base and player pools grow significantly beyond North America in the past few decades, thanks in part to concerted efforts on the part of the NBA to market the sport to Europe and Latin America…… [Sample text about this topic in Latin America, Europe, and North America]

Question A

You are the leader of a major aero-defense manufacturing plant. You build fighter-jets. You travel nearly 90% of the time for business. You find yourself on a commercial airplane preparing to take-off. The plane begins traveling down the runway at 170 miles per hour. At this very time, you lean back in your seat and remember your college physics course and the principle of lift.

Explain this principle and how it relates to all air travelers everywhere.

Question B

Roofs of houses are sometimes “blown off” during a tornado or hurricanes. Explain this using Bernoulli’s principle. Can you think of other examples where this effect is observed or used? Many times you read people should open certain windows to reduce the effect and possibility of the roof being lifted and house exploded.

Give it some thought, “Google it”, explain clearly why your chose your example and explain the physics. Properly cite any references and information you use.

Draft

 

 

Indecency, profanity, and obscenity has been challenged by broadcasted radio and television for many years now, while still trying to send their message to the audience. Federal communications commission has been regulating and monitoring television and radio channels to make sure such censorship policy is being followed. However, in today’s society, such vague restrictions have gotten looser. Language censorship on television and radio is slowly losing its value as this can certainly effect our society in many way.

By late 1930’s language censorship was beginning to establish as the directors of the radio and television networks assured of scripts to be free of any obscene and sensitive jokes that could offend listeners. “By 1939, NBC programs were prohibited from talking about suicides or describing homicides on the air. Demeaning or ridiculing public officials was banned. In children’s programs, parental authority was sacrosanct, but NBC also proscribed horror shows, the use of vulgar or profane words, stories of torture, kidnapping, or morbid suspense or hysteria. Any program that described a medical operation, sexual disease, or advocated mercy killing or capital punishment was also strictly taboo” (Pondillo, 2010). Censorship during this era showed its relevancy. Sexual radio content was almost nonexistent, and even atomized words were scrutinized for double entendre.

However, today’s humor and language use has had negative depiction from its viewers. South Park, being one of the most watched American animated show on comedy central television network has used profanities and indecency language for over a decade, in order to keep their audience entertained of such comedy animated show. Schulzke investigated the existence of profanity and mockery toward different background culture and races (Schulzke, 2012). This has left many people puzzled, questioning the such lack of control over language censorship on broadcasted cable television.

According to a research, “FCC rules don’t apply to cable or satellite TV, so Comedy Central can produce an over-the-top satire like “South Park,” in which animated children swear for laughs, while HBO can produce a serious drama like “The Wire, “in which characters swear for the sake of realism” (Adalian, 2006).

In the research on profanity in media and its association with attitude and behavior revealed that, individuals that were often exposed to profanity in multiple form of media, beliefs about profanity and its use, tend to be more aggressive. Overall, broadcasted television and radio programs that are self regulated have clearly lost their edge on language censorship policy, making it highly accessible to children, as well as causing harmful and negative depiction toward certain viewers.
