Race and Gender Advancement in Social Media

Media

 America being a superpower, does not only display its advancement in scientific discoveries but also social and gender advancement. Dating back in 1840, Harper, an author and social analyst states that, a walk for equal rights for all citizens could only be cropped up to the benefit of social and cross-gender development. Women acknowledged that their civil rights had been denied, which led to an upsurge of campaigns and demonstration. They were fighting for legal rights to own property, pursue higher education, venture in the scientific world, and retain custody of children after divorce among others. Timely in the year 1960, the civil war association had paraded much influence and swept U.S in the storm.

Public Relations Campaign Proposal

Proposal

 Introduction

 Media is one area that is very important to a business and largely affects its reputation. According to Wilcox et al. (2015) there have been complains of how the activities of the mainstream media have had a negative impact on the reputation of companies to the extent that company executives have come out defensively on the way that journalists cover their businesses claiming that most of the media houses have been out to tarnish the names of their businesses. On the other hand, the media houses have indicated that they are faulted by the businesses because the CEOs and other executives do not allow them access to even the most basic information about their activities. However, it is almost impossible to allow media access to all the information on a corporate. It is therefore advisable that the corporate itself takes charge of its relations with the population instead of relying on the media which is likely to give false information about a corporate provided that they publish or disseminate information that draws the attention of the public. Social media is a development that has been taken over by corporates and is being used to replace the role that mainstream media has played in the functioning of corporates (Wilcox et al. 2015). In this light, an organization can use the available platforms to disseminate information about its activities and eliminate the chances of the mainstream media tarnishing its reputation. It is easy to get the attention of people by using sports. Corporates sponsor teams, tournaments and sports events and use them as a channel for communicating about their activities. Therefore, this paper will discuss how a company can reclaim its reputation by sponsoring a half marathon event event and creating an integrated social media platform that will be used to update people on both the track events and the operations of the company after a biased expose by a company in the mainstream media has damaged this reputation.

Psi-borgs: The Ghost in the Machine

Machine

 Background

 Mankind remains highly fascinated by the paranormal activities and subsequent documentation of the same. These anomalies represent desired connection with the afterlife which is manifested through possession of physical matter in order to assert the presence of such paranormal forms. Throughout histories, numerous instances of paranormal activies have been documented proactively and accidentally which have inadvertently lent a hand to the controversial debate over the presence of such natural forces coexisting with humanity. Harvey’s article the Ghost in the Machine: Spirit and Technology details a unique history of the paranormal occurrences and how they shifted perception about ghosts and ghoulish characters (Harvey). He notes a steady trend in the interactions of such figures with humanity that started with one-to-one interactions resulting into personal tales of the encounters. Then trend persevered through history and remained a preserve for seers and mediums. Eventually, history indicates a sudden shift to modernised equipment such as the camera where paranormal figures appear in still images captured at the time. In Harvey’s words, “Psi-borgs’ have taken on a new way to review themselves to humanity which is majorly focussed on modern day technology.
