television, goes to movies, everywhere there are advertisement, all these effects the mind, as well as the culture. Media has also shaped America in most all ways. The violence, the passion, all stems from media entertainment. In 1920, radio quickly became a popular medium of providing news and entertainment to the masses in their homes. When it comes to the social influences of the visual entertainment media I feel that television is mostly negative. It dulls people's senses and lowers their creativity. It is passive watching rather than playing or doing and the news focuses on what's exciting and thrilling. A mental disease of our times not confined to news or to visual media but certainly virulent there, which is mostly painful and/or stressful. Meanwhile the good that people do passes unnoticed because it's quiet & un-newsworthy. I think that movies are more positive, movies can move hearts awaken loveliness, and people sometimes gather as a group of friends before or after a movie. Watching movies is the best thing I love to do and it keeps me busy, but some movies glorify violence and conflict, or sexualize too much. At least with the internet (as with newspapers) we have a full choice where we put our eyes, ears and hearts and can quickly turn the page if we run across something we don't want to be in the presence of. I feel that audio media influence social behavior by using this type of media it would create new trends in society which then affects the society's view. This case then would be a part of the people's socialization thus makes a difference in the current generation. I also feel that it would be a great factor for the evolution of the human behavior.

    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.
