Review of On-line Publications
Because of the prevalence of the internet in today\'s society many
thousands of papers now publish an on-line edition. It is through the use of
this medium that they wish to make in roads in the communications market. It is
seen as a necessary step by many because of the loss of readership due to the
internet, broadcast journalism and radio. In my review I will examine an on-line
edition of a newspaper from each of the continents. I will comment on some of
the technical aspects each employ. I will also discuss the tools many of the
papers are using, that not only make them a hybrid of broadcast, radio and print
journalism but also establish them as the only medium that is using interactive
Representing the continent of Asia and the city of Hong Kong is the
South China Morning Post. It is one of only a few English language news papers
in the republic. The post has an air of journalistic freedom the other news
papers do not seem to have. One of the lead articles outlined this concern and
dispelled the rumor that China would censor the paper when the city is turned
over in July.
The Morning Post is a very up to date paper that features an updated
breaking news sidebar. A very useful and inviting feature which enables it to
keep up with and often scoop the broadcast media. The newspaper also had a
technology section which caters to the on-line user. The post also utilizes the
use of java script to make it seem more like an interactive medium.
Of the papers available from the continent of India the Times of India
is the one of the finest. It features an archive that is quite extensive, a
metropolis section which features two cities a day, an easily accessible reprint
section for syndication of articles and a career opportunities in India section
that is aimed at the overseas applicant. It has some draw backs though, the
world section although very extensive is more of an overview of the continent
and the region rather than the entire world. It is not as inviting as some of
the other on-line news papers it has a uninviting look to it which lends it to
be a little less reader friendly.
Business Day is the best offering of dailies for South Africa. It takes
a little longer to load the page but that is due to a very dominate graphic
which clearly outlines all of the major markets of the world. The major market
graphic is the most impressive of the elements of this on-line newspaper. Coming
in second is business days entertainment section. It has well written and
intelligent reviews of cinema, books, theater, wine and food. As a whole the
paper has some major drawbacks, there are no pictures, essentially no world news
and the front page contained a spelling error.
The Times of London is the signature paper of Europe. It is not only
very easy to use it is also very insightful and timely. It has a crossword
puzzle, a first among all of the newspapers that I reviewed for this assignment.
It has a true world news section which has comprehensive coverage of the world.
It has a very slick look that is complimented by many color and black and white
pictures. Many of the stories incorporated graphics which lead to a very
contemporary wed designed look. The most compelling aspect of the paper was the
feature “personal times”. Personal times, is a customized news paper designed
from the readers general interests. The feature was one of many which
distinguished the times from any other I reviewed. Overall the times was a very
exciting newspaper and one which is very insightful into its readers needs.
An extremely modern looking design dominates the Christchurch Press, one
of the three on-line papers from the small island. It has the distinction of
being the only paper I could find that had a photo gallery. The gallery was a
very welcomed find amongst the many papers on the internet that all but abandon
photojournalism for more graphics and text. Surprisingly, it does not have a
world news a section. It has some unusual fare for an on-line news paper, such
as, a motoring section, a teen section, a TV guide and a computer tools section.
It also distinguishes itself from other on-line news papers by offering sound
files. The sound files demonstrate how the medium of on-line news and broadcast
will probably be a merging and gray area in

The Synchrinicity of Pen and TypeThe Synchrinicity of Pen and Type At first, there would appear to be little in common between a poem that attempts to persuade a mistress and one that commemorates an anniversary. Indeed, there are few sentiments that The Anniversary and To His Coy Mistress share. Yet, these are love poems and there must be some common ground that unites them on some plane. There is, of course, such a common point of reference and it lies in the attitudes towards time that we find expressed in these poems. M

This is an age old question, that for years has stumped even the best of scholars. The thing people need to realize is that there is no black or white, yes or no answer to this question. It can not be analyzed, or sorted out by scientists or analysts to create a simple why or why not answer for the lay person. The simple fact is, heartache, tragedy, and suffering is somet
Farewell To Arms PaperFarewell To Arms Paper Hemmingway has a unique style of writing. It works on multiple levels. A person could read Farewell to Arms and enjoy it as a tragic love story. Hemmingway’s concise writing style allows a literal interpretation. At the same time a reader could get involved with the various symbols that he has placed in the novel. In a way everything he has can be used as a symbol depending on a person’s biases. This is what makes Hemmingway’s writing even more unique. He can have what see

During his 80 year lifetime, he systematically developed a pragmatic, empirically based philosophy which he claimed would lead its followers towards an enlightened existence. Buddhism is commonly called a religion; however, it differs from the usual definition of a religion in that it has no deities, does not promote worship of demigods, and
The Lust For Power: How Politics and Personal RelaThe Lust For Power: How Politics and Personal Relations Become One WILLIAM YAO The stories of the Bible reveal a pattern of “ups and downs” for the nation of Israel. A period of prosperity, faithfulness and fearing God would almost always be followed by a period of destitution, lawlessness and idolatry. This recurring cycle can be linked to political authority, and the level of separation of political authority from other influences. The successful struggle for liberation under the leadership of
SocialismSocialism The term socialism is commonly used to refer both to an ideology--a comprehensive set of beliefs or ideas about the nature of human society and its future desirable state--and to a state of society based on that ideology. Socialists have always claimed to stand above all for the values of equality, social justice, cooperation, progress, and individual freedom and happiness, and they have generally sought to realize these values by the abolition of the private-enterprise economy (see CA

Johannes BrahmsJohannes Brahms “Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45” April 24, 2003 There are those moments in life where one is certain that the everyday minutiae that worries one so is as insubstantial as smoke. The hands we use for mundane activities, the breath scarcely noticed as it enters and exits the body, the eye that is witness to countless images…all these instruments lay idle until music animates them. Requiem, such a paradoxical body of music - it is the ephemeral hand of death yet vibrating with power,

AishaAisha Aisha was the youngest daughter of Abu Bekr, himself the chief advisor, the first disciple, and best friend of Muhammad -- the Messenger of God. It was customary in those days, and still is today in Arabia, for a man of property and substance to have many wives. In offering his daughter to Muhammad, Abu Bekr was trying to solidify his ties with that great man, hoping an issue would spring forth to carry on the name of both Muhammad and Aisha. The Qoran allows a man to have up to four wives
Black BoyBlack Boy besieging the ethnic intolerance during his nurturing years Black Boy (1845), created by Richard Wright with his soul and written as his shadow, is a subtly actualized chronicle of an adolescent’s coming of age in the United States accompanying by a clear-cut denunciation of the Southern racial intolerance.

BuddhismBuddhism 12/10/98 Introduction To understand the ways of Buddhism is to understand a concept of thinking that is rare.

ThemesThemes The three major themes are love, loyalty, and irony; the most major theme being irony. Antigone\'s love for her brother, Polyneices, was so strong, she died for him. Haemon\'s love for Antigone was so strong, he died with her death. Eurydice\'s love for her son, Haemon, was so strong, she died with his death. Creon\'s guilt and love for his wife and son was so strong, he felt he should not go on living after their death. . . . I speak for you, for me, and for the spirits of the dead. . .

Slowly extend one hand forward, palm up, and follow the path of your moving hand to look forward as your arm fully extends. Hold that extension
