Good and the Bad of Technology

posted Dec 10, 2018, 7:12 AM by PHS Warrior Beat

    Computers and phones have been a great development for technology and had led us to various technological advances, but with the good, also comes the bad. People today are becoming too dependent on technology and it’s becoming a problem.

    Think about what you would do if your computer, iPad, or laptop crashed today? What if someone took your phone away for a few days or perhaps you lost it? You wouldn’t be happy because most of us cannot go a minute without looking at our phones.

    Society is so dependent on technology that doctors have begin recommending a “technology detox.” This is a period when individuals take a break from using any electronic devices including smartphones and computers as a way to reduce stress.

    “ Schools are not making the technology problem any better, though. Many schools have stopped the “old-fashioned” way of turning in work - on paper”. Teachers have become dependent on assigning, collecting, grading, and returning work online. Although this is conservation of paper, which is a benefit, if the internet is down, work is over for the day. The good come with the bad.

    Many times, people are too worried about their phones instead of living in the moment. If someone is out having fun, thought about their phones are still running through their minds. They are too worried about who is texting them, or if their phones are dying. The result is that you fail to capture and experience the moment since you are busy worried about other things.

Disney came out with a teaser trailer for the movie, “The Lion King” and it's going to be in live-action in theaters during the summer of 2019.     

    In this live-action Disney movie they have huge names in it like Beyonce, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Seth Rogen.     

    The trailer was aired during the NFL’s traditional Thanksgiving primetime game. The trailer was racked up 10 million views less than 24 hours.

    People are mostly worry about this movie because they think that Mufasa’s death is going to be bad because it is in HD. The director Jon Favreau remade the movie “ The Jungle Book” and some people were not pleased with the movie. The reason for this is because they feel directors only want to recreate these movies to get more interest from older viewers.

    The only thing that people are going not to watch these new movies is that they didn’t want to see their favorite old story tell the same story and never change. According to an article from the BBC,  “the fans reaction has the largest positive thing from when kids watched it during the football game.”

    Overall, people are really happy that they are coming out with new movies that are better than the original so little kids now can see them.

By:McKenzie Mitchell
 See the source image    The Netflix original series, 13 Reasons Why, is receiving backlash since it was put out for the public on May 18, 2018.

    In the 13 Reasons Why first season, a young, fictional high school student named Hannah Baker commits suicide as a result for being bullied over and over again. The junior made 13 tapes for the different people who drove her to end her life.

    Many people were upset with the show because in the tapes, it talks and depicts scenes of the young girl being sexually assaulted and it shows her actually inflicting self-harm.

    According to foxnews.com, people were mad with the first season, but the second season had  brought a lot more backlash.

    In the finale of the second season, Tyler Down a student who went to Hannah Baker’s high school, walks into the boys bathroom at school where a few of his peers start beating him up. Tyler’s head is smashed in the bathroom’s mirror and against the sink before the boys pushed his face into the toilet bowl.

    While being beat up in the bathroom, Tyler Down was also sexually assaulted and left in the bathroom floor bloody and all alone. At the very end, it shows Down coming to the school dance holding an assault rifle, attempting to shoot up the school.

    The show did put a warning at the beginning of every episode, but some people think that the earning was not enough.

    A viewer wrote, “Can someone make the executive decision to cancel #13ReasonsWhy already? Yes, these topics need to be discussed. But I'd rather it be from a show that knows not to make actual painful situations into dramatic plot points.”

    The show has only been out for less than a week. Some viewers appreciate the show touching topics that need to be brought to society’s attention, but some think it needs to be approached a different. If 13 Reasons Why continues to air, changes will definitely be made.

  Music has changed and developed from the 20’s to now 2018 it sounds totally different from what it used to be like and now there’s more and famous new artist in this generation and the style of music has changed also the way it used to be it had simple beats unlike today there's like a thousand beats per second. The 20th century saw a revolution in music listening as the radio gained popularity worldwide and new media and technologies were developed to record, capture, reproduce and distribute music.

    The music in this generation uses a variety of recording machines and difficult machines to make one beat or a few to make it sound a lot more better than what it used to be. And the music videos are a lot different, the director of the music video adds special effects and can make the singer be a one location more than one place.

    And for this new generation for clubs now we have DJ’s with the huge set that can change in between sounds and edit a beat on spot to change the tempo and replace the track with another sound or beat. Like for trap music there are tons of combinations that they use. and rhythmic snares; deep 808 kick drums; double-time, triple-time and similarly divided hi-hats, and a cinematic and symphonic utilization of string, brass, woodwind, and keyboard and synth, instruments creating an overall energetic, hard hitting, deep, and variant atmosphere.

    David Guetta said, “That moment in 2009 something really unique happened. And it happened, I would say, from 2009 to 2016. There was a moment when the music in the United States and Europe was the same. This never happens. Maybe at the time of The Beatles, you know, but it’s very rare.”
