The comparison of a Canadian newspaper printed in the 1920s with a current one


First and foremost, although newspapers have drastically changed over the years, the idea behind it remains the same. A newspaper can be described as a publication containing information in a factual manner. The type of information found can be related to politics and social events as well as entertainment and the media, sports, the weather or jokes and comic strips. When it comes to the front page of the newspaper, three main changes have been brought on, since the 1920s, the layout of the newspaper, the format as well as the content. First of all, the layout as I will further discuss, changed in the way the number of images increased as well as the way the text font varies and so on. Second, the content, has shifted from only politics and social events, to advertisements, entertainment and so forth. Finally, the format of the newspaper has gone from a very broadsheet format to a much more compact one. The newspaper I have chosen to compare from the 1920s is from Washington, was written March 4th 1920 and is entitled “The Evening Star”. The one I have chosen from our time is entitled “The Gazette” and was written October 25th, 2010. If we take a look at the newspaper from the 1920, the first thing that I noticed in the layout was the lack of images and pictures. The only image that is surrounded by…...

Printed and Digital Books

...Printed Versus Digital Books Name: Course: Professor: Date: Introduction Books trace their history to 868 BC when a Chinese writer produced a book named Diamond Sutra. However, printed work never featured predominantly before the development of Gutenberg’s Bible. Before Gutenberg, humans preserved literary work through wood, metal, or stone paintings. Further, people started using paint as a mode of expressing and preserving ideas. As technology advanced, printing burgeoned and the world became filled with books. Today volumes of printed sheets may be found lying everywhere particularly in libraries. Everywhere you go, from private homes to libraries, you will find magazines, hard cover books, newspapers, journals, religious books, and many other forms of printed material carefully arranged waiting for readers. However, over the recent past, people have left the colorfully printed media for digitally downloaded and installed media made available by technological gadgets. This paper will assess the place for printed books in an era where technology presents myriad alternatives. Current Trends Today, students flock schools with the latest gadgets such as iPads, NOOK color, and Kindle Fire equipped with an array of books. These technological tools can handle simple digitized forms of books as well as enhanced books. Enhanced books have gained popularity over the recent past and prominent publishers reproduce their books in such versions. This sudden twist of events......

Comparison of Canadian and U.S. Health Care Systems

...Comparison of U.S. and Canadian Health Care Systems Quinn Sullivan California State University East Bay Abstract Health care is an essential service needed by citizens. As a result, the government plays an important role by designing an appropriate health care system for its citizens. In this paper, a comparison between the health care system in the U.S. and Canada has been made. Using various literary sources, the comparison has been done considering the four components of health care services delivery; financing, insurance, delivery, and payment. The findings indicate that the health care system in the U.S. is expensive but more efficient than the single-payer health care system in Canada. The findings have further been analyzed to ascertain its implications on the U.S. citizens, as well as the Canadians. The paper concludes that the health care system in the U.S. does not favor the middle-class earners, and thus recommends an improved system. Table of Contents Abstract 2 Table of Contents 3 1.

The question is not whether newspapers are going to continue, but how the publishing industry will adapts. Research shows that newspapers are now charging for online content, but more importantly that consumers are willing to pay. Sector Structure Up to date news that is recorded and presented to a consumer is classified as a newspaper, typically through the print medium, on inexpensive newsprint paper, typically sold through retail stands. The industry is divided into two main formats: ‘broadsheets’, sometimes known as ‘the quality press’, more formal and better respected than those taken less seriously which are known as ‘tabloids’.

...The U.S. newspaper industry is undergoing the rapid decline due to the economic downturn and the competition from other media, especially from Internet. This paper is going to provide the overview of the current environment of the United States newspaper industry and how newspaper transit from old business model to the new one in the competitive digital era. Here I am going to focus on addressing some of potential opportunities and threats of the United States newspaper industry. Industry Opportunities: There are some potential opportunities for newspaper companies if they have the ability to quickly adapt to the new technological changes. One of the major opportunities is the increasing availability of alternative news and information via devices like E-readers and tablet computers such as the iPad. Another opportunity is the rise on the web for the newspaper industry. Google's Chief Economist Hal Varian said he has been studying the data on circulation and adverting revenue from the Newspaper Association of American and he came to the conclusion that “Digital distribution will be a boon to newspaper publishers if they can also radically redefined their product and means of reaching consumers.” (David 2010) Thus, in this section, I am going to explain how alternative news sources and the rise on the web can help to benefit newspaper industry as a whole. Alternative News Sources: iPad and E-readers New devices like Amazon Kindle and Apple’s iPad can provide a new......

...A newspaper (often just called a paper when the context is clear) is a periodical publication containing news, other informative articles (listed below), and usually advertising. A newspaper is usually printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint. The news organizations that publish newspapers are themselves often metonymically called newspapers. Most newspapers now publish online as well as in print. The online versions are called online newspapers or news sites. Newspapers are typically published daily or weekly. News magazines are also weekly, but they have a magazine format. General-interest newspapers typically publish news articles and feature articles on national and international news as well as local news. The news includes political events and personalities, business and finance, crime, severe weather, and natural disasters; health and medicine, science, and technology; sports; and entertainment, society, food and cooking, clothing and home fashion, and the arts. Typically the paper is divided into sections for each of those major groupings (labeled A, B, C, and so on, with pagination prefixes yielding page numbers A1-A20, B1-B20, C1-C20, and so on). Most traditional papers also feature an editorial page containing editorials written by an editor, op-eds written by guest writers, and columns that express the personal opinions of columnists, usually offering analysis and synthesis that attempts to translate the raw data of the news into......

The 1920's

...Did the 1920’s Roar? The 1920’s were an interesting time in history, soldiers were returning home from war and people had a reason to celebrate and thus the decade roared. Many women went back to working out of the home but women became more liberated after experiencing independence of working during the war. Women wanted to work, dress more modern, get educated and have the right to vote. Families reunited and enjoyed sitting around the living room listening to new inventions like the radio and the record player. People had more money and they wanted to have fun and live beyond their means spending money on convenience items like washing machines, sewing machines, and vacuums. Middle class wanted to live like the rich and enjoy luxuries like cars, fine clothes and entertainment like Jazz, movies and gambling. Mass production and advertising was making items more accessible and desirable and everyone was investing their savings on the rising stock market. In many ways the 1920’s were a positive period full of fun and fads and the decade roared but there were also negative events throughout the 1920’s, most notably the 1929 stock market but also political and labour unrest, racial discrimination and the onset of Residential Schools, which made the 20’s, not roar. All the new fads and fashion trends made this period a time for change and growth. Many ladies in the 1920’s wanted to be liberated and challenge the status quo on acceptable dress and conservative hair......

The Media in Canadian Politics

...The Media in Canadian Politics 1956 words Media has always been a center of interest of different political intellectuals in Canada. They always tend to use media as a powerful platform to convey their message to the all the stakeholders of Canadian politics. Common people, on the other hand, also use media to transmit their concerns and feedback to their political representatives. Be it the print media, broadcast media or social media, they have always played a significant role in Canadian politics. We have seen the active role of media in the longest election campaign of Canada in recent federal elections. Media influence Canadian politics by serving as an intermediary between the government and the common people, by acting as a public representative, and by shaping people’s perception of the political environment around them. As a common carrier of information for both government and common people, media plays a significant role in Canadian politics. The important part of this role of media is that most of the media act independently to provide unbiased information for both government and common people. This, however, is not always the case. We will discuss biased part of media later in this essay. As an intermediary between government and common people, media reports the news, helps determine the critical issues to be discussed, and enables the transparency in the political structure. Reporting the news is most basic and essential function of media. Common people......

The Evolution of Tqm in the Manufacturing Sector: a Comparison of Current Practice in Japan and China.

...The evolution of TQM in the manufacturing sector: a comparison of current practice in Japan and China. TQM has many definitions which are influenced by individual interpretations of businesses or academics’. However for the purposes of this study TQM is defined as “the involvement of all of a company's managers and employees in making sure that its products and services are all of a high standard and exactly as designed” (Cambridge Business Online Dictionary 2012). TQM was developed and adapted by Japan after the Second World War. The development was motivated by the visits and lectures of two American management gurus: W Edwards Deming and Joseph Juran. In recognition of the former’s contributions, the Japanese, in 1950, introduced Deming Prize which is a highly prestigious quality management award. As a result of successful TQM implementation Japanese products enjoyed worldwide recognition for their unmatched superiority in quality, durability and design. It was not until the 1980s that the rest of the Western World acknowledged the role of TQM in Japan’s success and subsequently have been trying to embrace it and implement it in their businesses (Powel 1995, cited by Martinaz-Lorente et al 1998). This study aims to compare TQM implementation in Chinese manufacturing to that of Japan with Japan, understandably and unquestionably, being the bench mark and gold standard. There are four main factors which underpin and form the foundations of TQM: management leadership,......
