Unformatted text preview: Week 6 Discussion and Replies The Hackhman East School video address the issue of immigration and refugee status at hand. Most countries see immigration and refugees as a controversial issue, mostly due to safety concerns and national security. The Muslim Community has it the worse in this case, as well as most people of African descent who are looked down upon, in most places of the world. The issue inquires if Australia is doing enough to help these refugees find a safe place to call home. The real question is, is it Australia's job to find these people a safe place to call home or is it these people's job to find their own safe haven. This is not my opinion, but rather two ends of the spectrum. This determination should be on the rights for the voters to decide. The audience is the Australian people in general, but specifically the Australian constituents and their relatives who may help sway their votes. The children in the video seem to be very passionate about helping these refugees. The woman in the video who brought her family from the Congo seemed grateful to Australia for providing these opportunities. Unfortunately, she also stated that she couldn’t help her friends and relatives escape the predicament she successfully made it out of. The producers may have created this video as propaganda for the liberal party in Australia to help them gain votes to bring in more refugees and help those in need. In countries with weak bureaucracies or authoritarian rules, it could be expected that the citizenry perceives all government public relations as forms of propaganda and fundamentally distrust all the communication efforts (Gelders & Ihlen, 2010). On the other hand, it could also be seen as a project done by children simply for the sake of educating them. The main point of this article is that there are people who need help. As the kid questions in the end, are we as citizens (not just Australians) doing enough to help our fellow humans in their time of need. References Gelders, D., & Ihlen, Ø. (2010). Government communication about potential policies: Public relations, propaganda or both?. Public Relations Review, 36(1), 59-62. Hackham East School. [The New Media Awards Program]. (2012, January 8). Immigration Australia: A special report [Video file]. Retrieved from ? v=zPLgII3psmQ Discussion replies Reply 1 Excellent work on your discussion post. I’m very interested in this topic, as the refugee crisis should not be ignored, as it is a growing occurrence, and these people are fleeing war-affected countries. Job well done analyzing your article. It’s unfortunate that refugees are dying trying to get into countries so that their family can be safe. The Syrian refugee crisis has been going on for years, due to violent dictatorship in a civil war involved in rebel groups, religious extremist, and the regime. In 2015, more than 1.25 million refugees arrived at the borders of the European Union, many of which being in need of international protection from war, violence, and persecution in their home countries (Greussing & Boomgaarden, 2017). The potential immigration of Syrian refugees is a growing ten times greater than the existing number that have already immigrated, or tried to. Again Douglas, great work this week!

Reply 2 Great work on this outline! You provided us with a structures layout, which made it easy to read and understand. You were defined on you problem statement and goals as well. Your campaign sounds great, and highly informative. I have to say, not too familiar with technology advancement within the medical field, however your outline gave me clear guidance in what I needed to know. What is most important is that the brief contain all data and information for every stakeholder in the process (Phillips, 2012). If I’m not mistake, you’d be using your listed tactics to increase demand for your product right? If so, your strategies are looking to be very influential in the success of your product. I thought your key messages section was very creative, including testimonial statements from professionals provides credibility. Overall, I think your outline is ideal, and will be considering using your organizational strategies with my own! Again, excellent work Colette! References Phillips, P. L. (2012).

You chose the Middle East as your demographics, it’s wonderful that you provided some personal history behind that also. The section where content and data are being presented about Jews and Arabs are greatly supported with visuals within your video. Great mention to the rising conflicts in the middle East. It is apparent that investment on infrastructure in these locations are needed. Infrastructure investments in power, water, health and transportation, will accelerate sustained growth in the region, creating the conditions for peace and stability. Having a stable economy and a growing infrastructure will serve the communities in a positive way. Overall Linda, I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation, job well done! References Rice, J.

Your delivery was contextual and with clarity. You chose the South Africa as your location, in which you provided in detail it’s most recent economic and infrastructure investments. I thought it was a great idea to mention FIFA, as football is very popular on the continent! Nelson Mandela once stated, “the World Cup would help unify people and if there is one thing in this planet that has the power to bind people, it’s soccer.” Telecommunications is said to be the lifeline of modern business and industry in South Africa. Unfortunately, the infrastructure in the areas occupied by the black majority is generally undeveloped or badly maintained (n.d.). With the increase of telecommunications and technology, this will modernize underdeveloped areas, providing more jobs and increase infrastructure. Again Leila, excellent work this presentation!

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
