The negative effects of media on children and teenagers

For decades, media, more especially visual media has become an intrinsic part of our lives. However, media is becoming widespread has brought about many important problems in spite of the fact that media has simplified the access to the news in the world. Inasmuch as children and teenagers are more likely to be affected by the changes in the outer world, they are also more likely to be influenced by media. The increase in the consumption of cigarettes and alcohol, increased fast food consumption, and acts of violence among teenagers and children are some of the negative effects of media.

To begin with smoking and alcohol consumption, it can undeniably be said that both children and teenagers can easily be influenced by some television programs and commercials. The glamorization of consuming alcohol and cigarettes can give rise to smoking and alcohol consumption becoming widespread among young people because children and teenagers might suppose that smoking and consuming alcohol are compulsory in order to seem more adult-like.

When it comes to increased fast food consumption, like smoking and alcohol consumption, a great number of commercials concerning with selling fast food products usually tend to glamourize fast food products by making them more appealing. Consequently, children and teenagers would like to taste them; however, it is a fact that, fast food generally makes people addicted is concerned, it becomes impossible to meet the requirements of balanced diet. In addition, with the increase in the consumption of fast food products, one’s health continues to worsen, and consequently, it becomes inevitable to lead an unhealthy life.

As for violence, it can be asserted that conveying violence to people by means of media generally causes teenagers and children to exhibit an aggressive manner to other people. Movies including a great deal of violence have great influence on the behaviors of teenagers and children. In this regard, it should not be forgotten that every act of violence in movies can cause young people to imitate them in the real world and this may result in society’s becoming corrupt.

In conclusion, media can be regarded as the main influence on teenagers’ and children’s behaviors. Smoking and alcohol consumption, increased fast food consumption, and violence are some of these influences. In my opinion, media must make some adjustments in order to reduce the bad effects of caused by it.

Effects of Internet Addiction

The effect of internet addiction

As far as the developments that have changed the world considerably throughout the history are concerned, the internet is one of the most notable ones. With the internet’s becoming widespread all over the world, one can easily find a computer connected to the internet where he goes. However, there are certain bad effects stemming from using the internet excessively. Having trouble establishing social ties, neglecting schoolwork, and facing some health problems are some of these bad effects.

To begin with, just as the television weakens social ties among individuals, the internet also has an influence on this matter. Once a person becomes addicted to the internet, he gradually begins to live separately from other people. Consequently, it becomes inevitable for him to end up being alienated from society. Apart from this, he will not be able to distinguish reality from fantasy. Because of this reason, he will begin to turn a blind eye to what is happening around him, and thereafter, he will be faced with a lot of problems concerning his social life.

When it comes to neglecting schoolwork, it can easily be said that a student who can be regarded as an internet addict cannot find adequate time to study for his schoolwork. For example, it is an undeniable fact that the time when internet cafes are filled to capacity is the time when students begin to leave school. It must also be taken into consideration that students addicted to the internet cannot concentrate on their schoolwork even though they find the opportunity to study. Therefore, it can be observed that the more time a student squanders on the internet, the less grades he gets in school.

As for health problems, it can be asserted that using the internet excessively poses a great menace to one’s health. Sleeping disorders, for example, are pone of the most common problems about which almost every person addicted to the internet complains. Moreover, a person who regularly spends more than for or five hours a day on the internet is likely to suffer from some eye disorders because of the fact that rays given off by computer have a bad effect on the eyes.

It can be concluded that even though at fist glance the effects of the internet addiction are generally ignored, they might contribute to some serous problems in the long run. Social ties, schoolwork, and health are considerably affected by using the internet excessively. In my opinion, people who have drifted into this addiction had better use the internet less, know that life is not impossible in the absence of the internet.

Pros and Cons of Bilingual Education

In today’s world, language has become an indispensable element of international relationships, scientific developments and business activities. Therefore, some public schools have begun to implement bilingual education system, in which a student is caught lessons in a certain language rather than in his native language. However, this issue has caused great deal of controversy about whether it is proper to teach in a foreign language or not. This system fosters international communication and provides better job opportunities, whereas it hinders in-class participation and costs huge sums of money because of imported books written in this language.

To begin with, the bilingual system’s advantages, international communication and better job opportunities can be regarded as the good aspects of this system. By teaching students in a foreign language, these students will play important roles in international areas when they become politicians or ambassadors in the future. In addition to this, considering the fact that companies prefer those people who can speak a foreign language, it can be helpful for a student to learn a foreign language efficiently. Consequently, bilingual system fosters international relationships and provides better employment opportunities.

On the other hand, there are some certain disadvantages of bilingual system on students. T usually creates an obstacle for students to participate in class activities because of the fact that students generally find quite challenging to speak in a foreign language while expressing themselves. Apart from this, books written in a foreign language can cost considerable amounts of money for an average student to afford. Therefore, bilingual system can create financial problems when is though this fact.

It can be concluded that even though bilingual system poses some problems, it gives rise to the development of international relations between countries and provides better job activities. In my opinion, the implementation of bilingual system in schools should be encouraged, bearing in mind the good outcomes of this system.

Effects of watching too much TV

Discoveries and invention of devices  are always welcome till we, humans, find a way to abuse its benefits and be adversely affected by it. This was the case when Wilhelm Roentgen discovered x-ray and within five years, the British Army was using a mobile x-ray unit to locate bullets and shrapnel in wounded soldiers in the Sudan. TV was also invented with positive thoughts in mind – there would be no national borders, education and communication would be worldwide, etc. However, we are now trying to overcome its physiological and psychological adverse effects on human beings.

One of the physiological effects of watching TV in excessive amounts is eye-strain. It is true that there are specifications for watching TV; TV should be 5 m. away from the eye, the room should be adequately lit, TV should be placed at the same height with our eyes, etc. However, these do not prevent our eyes from getting tired if we keep watching TV for a long time. Another effect is obesity, which is widely observed in people who like watching TV and eating snacks  everyday (there is even a term “TV snacks” to refer to fast food that is suitable for eating in front of the TV). TV is such a powerful machine that people cannot get away from it – it is addictive.

Apart from the physiological effects, TV also causes psychological effects. One  is a result of being exposed to violence. After seeing so many violent scenes on TV, people start considering violent actions normal and they lose their sensitivity to their environment. Partly connected to this effect, the interpersonal communication among people decreases. Being insensitive to the suffering of other people causes people to become alienated. Also, after coming home from work people seek to relax in front of the TV, and generally people prefer watching TV to talking to each other. This issue is very important since lack of interpersonal relationships mostly end with divorces.

Shortly, inventions are meant to be beneficial for human beings, if we know how to benefit from them. TV is one of such inventions that need to be used for the right purpose only – being educated and entertained for a reasonable (according to age) period of time. We may, then, be safe from or at least reduce the adverse physiological and psychological effects of watching too much TV.

Serious problems of rural areas

(Boğaziçi Üni. Öğr.’nin kaleminden – P.Pekel)

In most underdeveloped countries there is a huge gap between rural areas and urban centers which results in the underdevelopment of rural areas. The proper distribution of national resources is the major indicator of the level of development. When there is an imbalance in access to these resources underdevelopment mainly strikes/hits rural areas. Underdevelopment in rural areas mainly/namely (baþlýca) manifests itself as three major problems: poverty, lack of education and poor medical care.

Poverty is the overriding problem in rural areas. Unfortunately rural areas have lagged behind (gerisinde kalmak) national development. These impoverished areas are lacking in / short of / inadequate in / deprived of investments. As a result the living standards are far from being satisfactory. Most of the rural residents lead a primitive life can only afford their very basic needs. The major source of income derives from agriculture and livestock racing. According to statistical data, rural people have a very small part in access to natural wealth. There are no suitable/appropriate conditions by which they can prosper as the government does not proceed (precede or provide da olabilir) financial supports, funds & expertise. The methods they are using are old-fashioned and these primitive methods do not contribute to their welfare. As they are very poor they have to lead miserable lives.

As rural people are poverty-stricken, they have no access to education. Lack of education is the major threat to their survival. The rate of illiteracy is tremendously/extremely high, most rural women are deprived of educational opportunities. For example, in Anatolia there is one primitive school in which one teacher teaches all the grades. The government does not allocate enough funds to improve the educational standards in rural areas. The school buildings are almost collapsing and need to be required. The teachers are unwilling to go and serve in these impoverished areas. If teachers were offered more attractive opportunities, they would be more willing to go and contribute to the disadvantaged children there. The rural students are being discriminated because they cannot make use of the resources and opportunities that their counterparts have in big cities. Most schools are not equipped with desks, blackboards and libraries let alone computers and other visual aids. As people are very poor their priority is not education but survival.

As people are very poor and uneducated, poor medical care manifests itself as another problem inflicting rural inhabitants. In Turkey health services are inaccessible in most villages. There are not enough hospitals and doctors even in big cities. To make things worse in rural areas there is just a nurse who tries to help the inflicted rural people. We know that the rate of infant mortality is extremely high and many women die while delivering birth. It takes, for example, 2 hours at least to reach the nearest place which has a medical center. These people are not aware of the importance of their health. They do not have money to afford health care , as well. As unhealthy and uneducated people, the chances of prosperity (ayakta kalma) and well-being are very low.

If rural areas thrive with educational, occoputional, and medical facilities and opportunities, large scale migration to big cities can be prevented.
