Policy Reactions 5 Canada Canada "Kellie Leitch's (Conservative Party) campaign manager has posted fake news about the Trudeau government in an effort to draw out left-leaning voters". Policy Policy There have been laws against the spread of fake news for decades. Even though they're only enforced in extreme cases, there is an explicit law against the spread of fake news if it influences election outcomes, in contrast to the US. Instead of proposing laws, the government started a collaboration with Facebook and Google to educate younger generations in recognizing fake news and improving the online information system. Germany Germany The increased spread of fake news was considered a possible threat to democracy by Angela Merkel towards the German elections. Policy Policy This bill is a great example of the worldwide discussion between governments whether it's appropriate to use the law as a mechanism against the spread of fake news, because it may also be seen as a limit to the freedom of speech. India India Where other countries are mostly concerned about the threats to democracy, India faced violence and even deaths as a result of fake news. What makes India more vulnerable than other countries towards the consequences of fake news? Poor education Large cultural differences Declining mobile phone prices Fall in internet data prices 'News' isn't defined in the law, misinformation therefore isn't punishable. Social media companies are considered intermediaries Current governmental solutions: Internet shutdowns Counterspeeches Policy Policy Current solutions by individuals Fact-checking websites Fake news doesn't only influence public opinion, but also interferes in resolving the MH-17 attack that killed 200 people. Netherlands Netherlands Policy Policy Current governmental solutions: Collaboration between Facebook, Leiden University and (newssite) to take down fake news through factchecking website. No real policy proposes yet. Singapore Singapore Singapore government has a prominent role compared to other countries in the region with battling fake news. This is mainly to make sure there won't be any religious tensions. A recent government survey showed that 91 per cent of Singaporeans are supportive of stronger laws to "ensure the removal and correction of fake news". Policy Policy Tech companies such as Facebook, Google and Twitter also bear a "significant responsibility". Some of these platforms have committed to reporting hate speech and flagging disputed information, but these "voluntary commitments" may not be enough, Mr Shanmugam said, citing how Germany and Israel are considering laws to compel social networks to remove certain types of unlawful content. Effects on Politics 6 “Everything is true and nothing is true. An explanation of climate change from a Nobel Prize winning physicist looks exactly the same on your Facebook page as the denial of climate change by somebody on the Koch brothers’ payroll.” Effect of Partisan media ,

Alternative Health

Transcript: THESIS: I believe that we can heal ourselves and better our every day lives without the use of modern day medicine by, taking care of our bodies by eating right, getting enough sleep, exercising, controlling our thoughts and actions and being aware of what our body needs at that moment. Rice Experiment -alternative medicine is holistic: working with the whole person – body, mind and spirit. Rather than simply focusing on specific symptoms and problems -Alternative medicines are usually less costly than conventional drugs and can be obtained over the counter -Practitioners of alternative medicine offer more personalized care -Alternative medicine treats the underlying cause of a problem -alternative medicine allows – and requires – you to take charge of your own health. When you are actively involved in your own health you can make better, more informed, more cost-effective decisions Why are so many people choosing this route? "People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships.Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is often called the “mind/body connection.” When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn’t right. For example, high blood pressure or a stomach ulcer might develop after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one" (Hastings 1). What exactly is the mind body connections: Mind body connection is the interaction of physical, mental and emotional aspects of the human life experience. This connection is real and exists in all people so there is no need of creating or developing such a connection. Mind body connection means that one can use his or her thoughts to positively influence some of the body's physical responses. Alternative Health and Medicine WORK CITED MIND BODY CONNECTION: -"Alternative medicine includes dietary supplements, megadose vitamins, herbal preparations, special teas, massage therapy, magnet therapy, mind body connection, spiritual healing and other methods that do not follow generally accepted medical methods and may not have a scientific explanation for their effectiveness" (Seasons 1). -Alternative medicine can also be ways or methods of just bettering our lives emotionally and physically without the use of modern medicine such as nutrition and eating well, and getting the proper amount of exercise and sleep. Topic 4 What is alternative medicine? If THIS can happen to rice, imagine what destructive thoughts or words can have on the human body After all, the human body is composed mostly of water. Audience: My audience that I have chosen to focus on is college students that are looking to better their lives now to prepare for the future. It is important now to get into these habits of taking care of our bodies now while we are still young and able. Hastings, Bill. "Mind/Body Connection: How Your Emotions Affect Your Health." N.p., Dec. 2010. Web. 1 Dec. 2013. LivelyMom. "The Rice Experiment – Demonstrating the Power of Words." Adam's Journey. N.p., 12 Feb. 2010. Web. 3 Dec. 2013. Seasons, Walter. "Six Reasons to Choose Alternative Medicine." N.p., 20 Jan. 2012. Web. 1 Dec. 2013. People against this alternative route argue that they want someone who is educated in medicine to help and diagnose them but really we know our bodies better than anyone. How can we improve our emotional or physical health from knowing about the mind body connection? First, try to recognize your emotions and understand why you are having them. Sorting out the causes of sadness, stress and anxiety in your life can help you manage your emotional health. Ways to improve emotional and physical health: -Express your feelings in appropriate ways. -Live a balanced life. -Develop resilience. -Calm your mind and body. -Take care of yourself. -being aware of your thoughts and how they can have an impact Can we really heal ourselves without the use of modern medicine?
