Tibaldo: Communications technology and the need for media education

SINCE the time of the early scribes and medieval town criers, painters, caricaturists, publicists and early reporters has played an important role in chronicling events that happened in the past. From clay tablets, hieroglyphs, ancient cave paintings and the Gutenberg press, the constant development of communications technology has also changed the way we live and interact with others. The introduction of various forms of media from print, radio and television broadcast during the last century was also responsible for making people aware of every happenings around the world from political unrest of nations, the melting of the ice cap at North Pole and discovery of new things or breakthroughs in science. While many question the role of the media as providers of doomsday stories and sometimes unproven conjectures, many praise them for their worthy news and information that they provide to guide and help people in their day-to-day living.

    Exactly what the new Covid rules mean across the UK

    England is expected to be carved up into three tiers from Wednesday with restrictions placed on each area depending on levels of coronavirus transmission.

    The Liverpool city region will be placed in the most serious “very high” risk category, while the high alert level reflects interventions in many areas subject to local restrictions, preventing mixing between different households indoors.

    The medium alert level will cover most of England and will consist of the current national measures, including the rule of six and the 10pm curfew.

    Here is how restrictions differ across the UK.

    Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max have larger screens and steel cases

    Apple’s new Deep Fusion feature also taps into the new A14 Bionic processor for photo processing, helping colors to pop even more. Professionals should also appreciate Apple ProRAW, a new file format that’ll give you more editing flexibility like other RAW formats. You’ll also be able to shoot and edit 10-bit Dolby Vision content right from the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, which is something you can’t do with any other smartphone.

    It’s not a huge surprise to see larger screens on iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, but they’re still notable. The Pro Max, in particular, is intriguing since it features the biggest display we’ve ever seen in an iPhone, edging ever-so-closely to the iPad Mini’s 7.9-inch screen. Both displays have the same “Super Retina XDR” technology, with support for HDR and Dolby Vision. They’ll also feature Apple’s Ceramic Shield technology, which the company claims is stronger than

    3 Sectors Areas to Invest in Ahead of Q3 Earnings

    Analyzing the third-quarter job market data is undoubtedly the best strategy for investors looking to play the upcoming earnings season. September data by the Department of Labor showed that from mid-March through late August, 59.3 million Americans filed for unemployment insurance.

    A majority of these claims were made in July and August, with 13.3 million around late August. Though this was lower than the peak hit in mid-May of 25 million claims, the figure exceeded majority of market watchers’ initial projection.

    Further, the Fed’s economic outlook released on Sep16 (that signaled at interest rates staying near zero through 2023) along with the grim pandemic scenario in Europe played a crucial role in dragging market sentiments down.
