It seems to me that television is a good thing. It not only provides information for people but plays a great role in entertainment. Notwithstanding some people might think that the violence and bloody scenes which spread along with some particular programs, the advantages and laughter which television brings couldn’t be overtaken easily by any other audio device.
Since 21 century, because of the invention of television, a big black box with a cable behind, has helped not only the government but folks to deliver the information and opinion which they wanted to show to the entire society. For instance, while a typhoon strikes Taiwan, people couldn’t get information from the government immediately. Thanks for the invention of television, people then can get a briefly news with a thumb pressing the button on the remote control.
So here are some things that I wanna discuss about:
1. When did the first Television come out?
The first TV got its debut in 1928, United States. It is a cabinet compacting a 4” screen. It is a mechanical television made by GE(General Electric) called, “Octagon”. And only four of these were built.
2. How can it involve and influence people’s everyday life?
TV transport the information through visual ways. People receive them by sitting in front of the TV. News and entertainments are two most important part in which TV influencing-range. You can know what just happened in NY, at the next second the important decision which Taiwan’s president just made popped out immediately. I mean, really, you couldn’t live without TV for just a few days.
3. Why does “Visual” involve our daily life so STRONG?
Have you ever discover that learing in a visual way retains a longer period? Memorizing graphic will be much easier than maintaining words inside your mind.
4. What are shown on TV?
News channels, usually divided into several sections, are most people always switch to. For example the headlines from CNN, the international news from BBC. Entertainment programs, for instance, talk shows, sports telecasts and movies which is my favorite part. And of course education channels, such as, National Geography Channel and discovery Channel.
5. What are the differences between TV news and the news from a newspaper?
TV news compatibly integrate with audio-visual videos, while newspaper couldn’t do that, definitely. But TV news is commanded to be far more briefly displaying the news than the daily newspaper. Thus, they only give you a little bit of information about each news. As a matter of fact you cannot know what happened in-depth. On the other hand, newspaper could give you more information and provides more aspects for readers as you can see in editorials.
6. What are the positive and negative influences of TV?
First and foremost, TV spreads information very quickly. Thus, it makes people update the latest easily. As for education, it would be a perfect match with teachers, providing great things for students. Students may find answers and learn something through some specific TV shows. Nevertheless, there are still too much sex and violence on TV, which will make bad effects on adolescent.
7. Question for readers who want to share your opinion with me:
What TV programs do you like?
BTW, I love “Chunk V.S. the mask” recently.
Write your answers below~ Hope you like it…
It was sad and disappointed (and honestly, a little bit shock) when i heard my math grade popping out from the teacher’s mouth. Unfortunately, this was the worst grade in my entire senior high life. But after a while, i totally forgot it!
I got a lot of As in my first grade. So, ok, i have to admit. I am not so prepared for this time. I totally underestimate it! At the moment i saw the test paper, so nervous that,"What the hell it is ?" i thought. Huh… That means i really have to study harder next time.
Last week i just bought Avril’s latest album. It’s so great that i listen to it all the time. (Almost there of Katy Perry’s in my own ranking) Anyway, just recommending. :)
Oh, recently i am reading a fascinating novel, called “Die Vermessung der Welt". It is a German-written book, original. It then translated into English. At the beginning, it was not so appealing for me to read. After reading a couple of pages and i left it on the table. Ha! :) But last week (After midterm exam) I finally got plenty of time. So, i chose to get myself inside the novel. And it is far better than i thought originally! It’s interesting but not so attractive. It was like….following a prescribe pattern. (Maybe ’cause it’s a German :) ) I’ve studied German for half year~ Guten Tag! Anyway, It’s still a great book about a two extraordinary people (mathematician and scientist) Gauss and Von Humbuldt. It educated me about this two celebrities. The fact is it is a novel, so i don’t know whether the informations and stories were right or not.
It’s so late now~ Wish everybody a great weekend! :)
still finding Wows…
The first thing that i wanna say is, “WordPress" is a good blogger. A lot of “Wow"s keep appearing in front of my PC. And i believe that it will continue for a couple of days. Any way, my old posts are removed from my lives pace. i wrote them long time ago. (before i’d discovered fb :-p ) Hope WorldPress could bring my passion of blogging back into life. XD
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

上禮拜去比國語朗讀，因為是比瑞芳區，所以我非常有自信的表現的到最好! 瑞芳區承辦單位是瑞芳國小，還沒比賽就出包，評審老師不知道是怎樣，好像私底下講好還是怎樣，突然就換了另外三個人，結果教室就留了一群不知其所以然的參賽者，你說這誇不誇張?! 如果妳覺得我剛才說的那些話有點"不可一世"，那這些評審連交代都沒交代就換人，這要怎麼解釋啊?
第二件令人火大的事：成績公布，我竟然是第三名!! 如果這場比賽有錄影的話，我一定馬上po上網給大家評評理。拜託，第一名的唸的那麼趕、那麼小聲，"滔滔不絕"情感可以表現成 "輕聲叮嚀" !! 評審講評竟然還說她這樣唸是"自然"!! 第二名的就不用說了! 嫋娜(ㄋㄧㄠˇ ㄋㄨㄛˊ )她可以 "大聲的" 唸成 ㄖㄨㄛˋ ㄋㄚˋ! 這麼嚴重的錯誤，名次竟然可以在我的上面!! 髒話都快出來了! #$~&~oxx
看到成績之後，馬上在評審講評時在眾人面前提出疑問，「你今天說朗讀要有高調、中調、低調，但是我們表現得很清楚，你又說這太超過；自然得讓人聽不出來有表現，你卻說很好，那我們到底要怎麼表現?!」我當時真的氣到甚麼話都說得出來。「你如果有想要表現，再小聲我們也聽得出來，但是不要把『朗讀』變成『朗誦』!」聽到她對我說得話，我更氣了。還說服裝不要太成熟! 算了，我不跟眼前這位阿婆吵，很紳士的轉頭就走。棒吧，跟人家吵完架，還可以這樣保持高姿態，哈哈! 後來愈想愈奇怪，成績公布跟前面的評審交換的事，不禁讓人聯想到 "賄賂"，唸的不怎麼樣的可以比一個從小到大在台北縣動態演說比賽成績亮眼的還強! 我就不信瑞芳區縣賽會有甚麼好成績!
吵完之後回休息區吃飯，講完我剛剛做的豐功偉業，老師們都豎起大姆指! 哈這就是「時雨人的精神」! 跟主觀的評審爭，總比自己回家躲在被窩裡哭還好吧! 之後十一月十二月後還有一場英文的演說比賽，希望不要再遇到這種主觀的評審和令人頭大的承辦單位!
p.s 如果瑞芳國小的教職員看到這篇文章，請趕快改進! 而我們之所以沒有投意見書到你們的校長室，是因為這件事我們不計較，這次的英文競賽如果是在瑞芳國小辦，我們不希望看到再發生這種事! 對我或對別的參賽者都不好! 而評審只能說她們主觀意識很強。///
