King hit or coward’s punch: the language of violence and why it matters – | Charli's yr 9 journal | Scoop.it
Assault victim Daniel Christie's family has argued the term

Via Jai Tuckwood
Charli Morelli's insight:

This is an article about the terminology of violence and changing the language from a king hit to a coward's punch this ad is to imply to teenagers that the hit is not cool and it is however looked down upon. I think it's better to call a random hit a coward's punch as it makes people not want to be known as a coward.  As the article states "violence on the street is a discourse of war — there are winners and losers. It’s about changing discourse to say there are no winners when someone is hit, there is no king." this article is valid and relabel to everyone. its purpose is to change the name which today has proven to be successful and is known as the coward hit.

Jai Tuckwood's curator insight, November 20, 2014 6:08 AM

This is an article about the terminology of violence and changing the language from a king hit to a coward's punch so that no one thinks it's good or cool to hit someone for no reason. I think it's better to call a random hit a coward's punch as it makes people not want to be known as a coward and peer pressure is something people might hopefully pay attention to. As the article says "violence on the street is a discourse of war — there are winners and losers. It’s about changing discourse to say there are no winners when someone is hit, there is no king." I think the article raises a valid point and it's good that the Australian government, media and celebrities have supported this language change.

Charli Morelli's insight:

This ad is trying to send a message across to the audience on how important road safety is. he tells the viewers common scenarios, this ad allows the audience to create their own image and put themselves or people they know in that same situation. Passengers are also effected by this ad it puts them in a situation that could be fatal to everyone in the car including them. this ad is reliable because i is an ad from the government and they have a 'doctor' speaking.

Erin Golding's curator insight, November 24, 2014 3:30 AM

This ad is very effective in sending the message of how important road safety is. It connects to the viewers by asking them questions that result in shocking scenarios. The shocking images that are put into your head are a strong reminder of the pain that speeding and irresponsible road safety can cause to both yourself and family.

United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right"

United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right" | Charli's yr 9 journal | Scoop.it
In the United Nations Population Fund’s (UNFPA) recent State of World Population report, access to contraception is described as a “universal human right.” While the report has no legal force, it declares that cultural and financial barriers to...

 

LBN:

In that case, food is a human right...are we to pay for everyones food too??&house and medical care&clothes??When does the demand for providing for the needs of others end?? Those who don't want to work hard to pursue life, liberty and happiness are burdens on society and cause the government to become their nanny and create a dependent state. The more dependent on govt society becomes, the less productive they become and eventually the less stable the economy becomes.

 

Socialism/collectivism/redistribution of wealth have been tried for decades in other countries, you'd think the US would learn from the past and the mistakes of others. But, not Hussein Obama and his administration of czars&incompetents.

 

Well maybe they are not so incompetent as they are intentionally trying to overwhelm our financial system and economy and bring the US down from grace. They don't think the US should be exceptional but on equal ground with third world countries. They see the US as a powerful oppressor who has kept the poor down in other countries, rather than as a humanitarian provider. Yet, the US is always the first country refugees&immigrants run to when they try to escape oppression, socialism and communism.  See http://2016themove.com for the best comprehensive overview of what makes Obama tick and why he has such an anti-American, anti-colonialism ideology.

 

Under Obama and his anti-American administration and policies we will all become equally poor, because everyone needs to "pay their fair share".

Charli Morelli's insight:

In this article it is brought to our attention the argument is; that it does not want the unfpa to make access to contraceptives a human right mainly for young women. although it is a hard argument to take sides on however i belive that having sufficient food and water is equally important as being protected from STIs. Expessially in places where infections such as this are more common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

Juliet Stanton's curator insight, November 18, 2014 10:10 PM

This article is arguing that it does not want the UNFPA to make access to contraceptives a human right, particularly for young women. However I disagree as I think that being protected from STIs is as important as having sufficient food, water and shelter, especially in places where these infections are quite common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

I think this article is really good. It not only tells you about the dangers of teenage drinking either at a party or behind the wheel but it actually tells you about the long term affect that alcohol gives you. It also gives some pretty scary facts that everyone should keep in the back of there mind.

This article explores the topic on how we have succeeded as a country to reduce smoking rates but unfortunately this has just led to binge drinking at unsupervised parties. It is sad that we have succeeded at one thing but teenage drinking at parties has gone on a rise. In class we have looked at binge drinking, smoking and teenage parties, which is suitable to this particular article.

Underage Drinking Law

KXAN News Today.

Via Caitlin Chadrawy
Charli Morelli's insight:

1 in every 4 students binge drink, 1 in 2 have experienced an achole  overdose. this numbers are rising everyday and unfortunately to is the death rate of young binge drinkers. we only have to look at this article to see the true damage it can do and sadly for this 13yr olds family and peers they are left to face the unthinkable truth. in this news report it mentions a new app called Drunk or Dyeing? this app is for a child who is in a situation  where they are drinking, this app provides them straight forward information on what to do under certain situations. this app was created to help underage drinkers who need assistance or who are fearing calling the ambulance because of the punishments they will be in for underage drinking. 911 life legislation is a new law inlaced in the US for underage drinkers to not hesitate to call for help because punishments in result of oungerage drinking or drug intakes. this law means that if a person under the age of 21 in the US can seek medial assistance without facing heavy tickets or being locked up. however this law does not protect the victim only the person calling as a victim under serious circumstances would not be responsive or hesitant to the idea of making a call. i think a law like this should be introduced to australia as it is very important for teens under 18 to know if they are in serious trouble or a friend or perhaps a stranger that its ok and safe to call 000. this is relevant to manny students across australia and i think it would be a successful law to have in our country.

This youtube video shares the information about underaged drinking, a seat that occurred and applications and help lines that offer the help needed in a situation. Going unnoticed the news reporter covering the case slips in the fact that 1 in 4 high schoolers binge drink. She also shares one of the helpful devices that can save peoples lives and it is an application on a hand held device called 'Drunk or Die'. The application helps in the situation when someone is unresponsive, unconscious, if they have odd breathing, if they are puking a lot and if their skin is a pale or blue colour and what to do at that point. 

The sad story shared in this news report was that 13 year old Sofia Martinese died on new years day from and alcohol poisoning. 

Now there have been a lot of new laws to do with underaged drinking due to the fact of the numbers of underagers drinking. The new law in this video is called law and the law provides some protection for kids under 18 who seek medical assistance for themselves and others.
