“How the content of online pornography depicts expressed consent for insemination”

“How the content of online pornography depicts expressed consent for insemination”

Authors: Carmen M. Cusack| J.D., Nova Southeastern University, USA

Abstract

Insemination is a sex act that requires consent. Legally, expressed consent eliminates any doubt that consent was absent, especially because the absence of objection does not imply consent. The researcher examined how the content of online pornography depicts expressed consent for insemination. The hypothesis accurately predicted that some films would express consent, some would ambiguously discuss ejaculation or consent, and some would remain silent on the subject. This research is important because it offers insight into how pornographic film actors appear to express consent. This research opens the door to future research on the subjects of nonconsensual insemination, expressed consent, and pornographic depictions of these themes.

Keywords: Nonconsensual Insemination, Pornography, Expressed Consent, Creampie, Cum, Money Shot
Analysis of Communication Barriers to Distance Education A Review Study

Analysis of Communication Barriers to Distance Education A Review Study

Abstract

Now that the technology is changing fast and due to the multitude of people demands and conditions, traditional educational systems and institutions have to provide additional educational alternatives. There are some educational establishments contributing to these conditions and demands by developing and offering distance education programs. In such programs, teachers and the students do not establish a face to face communication thus creating difficulties and are separated by physical distance and time. As a result alternate media sources are used to deal with these difficulties. That is to say, different delivery systems such as computer mediated communication systems, video tapes, printed material, cassettes and instructional television are used to deliver instructions from tutor to students. Moreover, the universities have the advantage of using World Wide Web to deliver the instruction to nearly any node in the world, regardless of the physical distance and time because of the developments in the Internet and the global network systems, Almost all institutions which are offering distance education should try and find the most effective program and make sure that it is a sufficient replacement for face-to-face education. Its effectiveness of course is dependent on how interactive the process is and how it overcomes the communication barriers among the members involved. Communication barriers, on the other hand, as in any communication process, also exist in distance education because of such reasons as the physical distance between members, the difficulties of dealing with new media, having time constraints and restrictions, background knowledge of distance education, incompetence in skills of using technology, and the interactivity level of the process. Put all together, effective distance education process becomes almost impossible. The levels of these barriers are different in different institutions or in different programs and in different delivery systems used.

Abstract

The construction of knowledge cannot be examined without the influences of power relations and its ideological instrument; discourse. However, interpretation of given information despite of discourses by the recipients also play an important role at knowledge/identity construction. During the study the indictment of the idea that “missing information about the „Other‟ and the words for identifying the „Other‟ may cause biased national discourses” is assumed. The study is focused on Cyprus Island, which is divided into two parts and shelters two communities. These communities share certain periods of the past but expressed by different discourses in the history textbooks. The purpose is to figure out whether the history textbooks were influential on the construction of the \'self\' and the \'Other\'. To illustrate whether citizens of both republics are active recipients or passive one; a questionnaire has been delivered to 100 Turkish and 100 Greek Cypriots who live in the island.

The global communication via internet has been fostering the political participation of the public civil into the world orders through several different ways; include the participation of computer virtuosos, called hackers, who have been sponsored the emergent of a new social movement „hacktivism‟ as a new interest phenomena for the media communication and technology field. This article aims to describe the hacktivism movement as one of the ways of civil people to participate into the global politics through the public sphere, communicate their ideas and promote the principles of democracy using the technology of hacking computer. Within this article I focus on several hacktivism activities emergent since 1990s. My findings have revealed that the hacking politics actions and the social-humanity messages were conveyed by the hactivists encouraged the global circumstances for being more aware and concern on the democracy discourses. Hence I shall conclude that in the modern era of communication and technology the hacktivism has been emerging to promote the freedom of people through the internet and distributes the democracy principles into the global world for the global changing.

Abstract

In view of the fact that, the world is not stabile and most of the things change very rapidly. In spite of this, women’s place and rights in some fields seem still the same. This paper seeks to explore whether women have any choice to construct their world in their life. This research focuses on analyzing the political economy and the cultural studies perspective to find out some answers for the research questions. Also Berger, Douglas, Foucault and Habermas perspectives have been analyzed to understand better if women have a choice to construct their world. The result points out that, the world can change but to make some changes, awareness of the problem is important. The importance of this paper is to make society aware of inequality rights among genders.

The Art Work and Triology of “Intellect – Action – Knowledge”

The Art Work and Triology of “Intellect – Action – Knowledge”

Abstract

Circulation of information produced by art as a consumable in the society has always been difficult for all times. Since art has developed an understanding beyond commonalities and general out-passes of values has always had the problem of dealing with and obedience with pre-inured values. Transformation, change and differentiation require new information. Artists who convert each new information to the energy of progress and thus enhance the emergence for art as an autonomous sense discipline, simultaneously by differentiating the knowledge art from knowledge for science, created a different ideological autonomy in human life. Change in lifestyles at different times has always led to changes in the phenomenological perception of the work of art; simultaneously the appetite put forth by the art has opened new horizons numerous sociological progress models. As the artist pushes the possibilities of reaching the knowledge in his occupation in the school of thought he established or inherited; it is inevitable that above all he struggles with his own emptiness. Emergence of knowledge as a result of questioning the reality through the intellect the sine qua non material of information starts with scholastic philosophy and takes it place in the history together with humanism which gave birth to Renaissance. Art and knowledge relationship which I will take into consideration as “The Work of Art and Intellect – Action - Knowledge Trilogy” does not consider the phenomenological relationship that comes from the work of art but also questions the subjective position of the artist towards being seen and show.

Abstract

As media organizations confront an uncertain future unleashed by disruptive technologies, they are searching for ways to successfully navigate the changing information landscape. This paper argues that one way out of the present crises is for media to embrace a culture of innovation and use engaging communication technologies that are mutually beneficial to the media and to the communities they serve. The paper maps trends in media innovations and then reports on a unique innovation project that designed a new digital tool to help media re- engage their communities in new ways. The success of the project suggests that innovative tools and services that are specifically geared towards community engagement can provide a lifeline for media in crises as well as transform community news, information distribution and visualization, and impact community conversations, making new media technology a valued ally to media organizations and communities rather than a disruptive threat.

Mobbing (Psychological violence in working place) has been researched especially by the scientists making researches in organizational communication for last 20-25 years. In Turkey, mobbing concept is a newer research field. In this study, how the news regarding mobbing has been given in Turkish press will be analyzed with Van Dijk’s discourse analysis. How the news regarding mobbing has taken place in Turkish press will be analyzed by applying Van Dijk’s discourse analysis. From the year of 1997 when the news related to the mobbing appeared to today, what kinds of differences happened in news discourses especially with taking place of mobbing in Turkish Criminal Law, will be analyzed. Keywords: Mobbing, working place, victim The working concept is to use human’s physical and mental powers for a determined aim in a planned manner. Nowadays almost the most important one of the personal prestige criteria is regarded as the success in working life. Therefore, the working life is leading in basic communal institutions to have an important role and place in the community and reflect existing potential. The working life has an important place in human life, because one third of the human life passes by working and in this activity the individual sustains the continuity of his/her life. By working the individual not only earns monetary gain, but also has moral gains with the issues such as becoming happy, successful and satisfied from the work s/he accomplishes. Due to the fact that the working life affects the individual’s relations with the community and communal position, the encountered problems affect the individual’s whole life negatively.

Abstract

There are two major views to literature. The first and older one treats literature as something, invented by human for cultural needs. The traditional studies in literature employ this view evaluating cultural value of literature. The other and new one considers literature as a part of the cybernetic system nature-human-literature, where a human play a role of a transmitter, nature is its input and literature is output. Accordingly, it presents human as a medium, communicating fundamentals of nature in the form of literary texts. Although this view is already formed, its scientific implications are not yet investigated. In this paper we employ the second view and show that literature in the whole and diffusion behave similarly. We propose a method for creation of sample paths of the diffusion process, related to literary texts. The paper is addressed to those who are interested in mathematical modeling, philosophy of literature and communication. It has a speculative form with a minimum number of mathematical formulae.

This research aims to identify the efficiency of the variables that positively or negatively affect customer attachment, which constitutes a significant place among the goals regarding marketing communications practices. The hypotheses regarding the research were tested through a questionnaire given to the executives of the 141 Group A travel agencies active in the distribution sector in Turkey. The research has shown that trust felt for the seller, positive and satisfying seller-customer relations, cooperation, mutual benefits, and empathizing have positive effects on creating customer attachment; while opportunist attitudes, potential conflicts between the seller and the customer, and risks regarding the future may affect customer attachment negatively.

Abstract

1946 elections retain a different part and significance by many aspects. Certainly, 1946 elections were not the only significant election in Turkish political history. However, 1946 elections indicate a crossroad, a milestone. 1946 elections express an important stage in Turkish political history as of transition stages from Selçuklu to principalities, from principalities to Ottoman State, from Ottoman State to Republic. Therefore it is one of the most important exchanges. Transition to multiparty system can be considered not with 1946 elections, but with the establishment of National Development Party (MKP). As a matter of fact, two distinct parties were established between 1923 and 1944; both of them were suppressed by the moderation of the council of ministers (Tuncer, 2003). On the other hand, the first party in the multiparty system period is the National Development Party, established on July 18, 1945 (MKP). As for Democrat Party (DP), it was established on January 7, 1946 following MKP (Tuncer, 2003).

Abstract

Cyprus is a small island in the eastern part of the Mediterranean sea. It has about the same size as the state of Connecticut with 660,000 inhabitants. The population of the island, according to the US State Department consists of: Greek-Cypriots 78%, Turkish-Cypriots 18%, Armenian, Maronite and Latin-Cypriots 4%. They were dispersed all over the island, mosques and churches can still be found side by side and members of one community worked in the business of the other. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots have been living on the island of Cyprus for almost five centuries. Generally all their social habits, productions, consumptions, fears, happiness, enjoyment ways, and sadness have always been the same. Being different, their religions and languages couldn’t obstruct this; they’ve shared the same faith. Although getting cross with each other in the past, the commonality of even the sorrow they felt is a proof that these communities possess a resolution culture, and not a conflict one! In this study, the aim of resolution, instead of positive phenomenon will be reached via a negative phenomenon as a result of conflict. The aim will be tried to achieved by the help of messages inherited selected examples from the 150 works (suitcases) that took place in a happening, and my own work (suitcase) called ‘Here are your pins grandmother’. The happening was titled Nomadifesta 2004(**) organized by Artrageous Group (***) (on the 22nd of May 2004, at Kasteliotissa Space, Nicosia Cyprus) and invited artists and designers, local and international, were asked to use a suitcase not only as a simple means of transporting belongings, but as a platform for the expression of one’s personal statement and as an arena of exchange and communication about migration.
