Dweck 1 Abraham Dweck Professor Swanson EN101/ Essay 4 29 April 2009 Pass the Popcorn 2.        “Could you pass the popcorn?”A woman exclaims as she is sitting by the TV watching  the news as they describe a double homicide that occurred only a few miles away from her.  Today, due to the heavy doses of media coverage and the speed at which it is received most  horror stories are taken in without a second thought. Watching a person jump off the ledge to  his death or watching as dozens of body bags are taken from the War in Iraq has become a part  of daily life for many people living in the United States. So while the media may perpetuate a  “culture of fear” when reporting the news, mankind has adapted to this coverage so much so  that it sees it not as fear but rather as life (Tietge 6).  Media coverage in today’s world has no limitations. The scene of the Twin Towers falling  will undoubtedly leave a scar in every person’s brain. However, how long did it take for that

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
