Good day to everyone reading my blog again! Guess what?!?
I have a University assignment worth 50% of my overall year mark for 1 subject, where I must choose a peice of technology or development in the field of Media, Communication and Information and discuss the effect it has on society.
I chose BLOGGING!
and I just created a perfect example for how blogging can definately have PRACTICAL effects towards changing society. Sunshine most recent post was titled " My Asthma & the pollution... ", the story of how she has been fighting asthma since she was young, and how being allergic to the "Turbo Inhaler", ventolin that is commonly used to treat asthma has meant she can no longer get medication to prevent her asthma worsening or causing fits...
The type of medicine Sunshine uses is the same type that I used up until I was about 13(when I stopped using medicines all together because my asthma subsided for a while), and are readily available here in Western Australia.
Sunshine's Aunt, Rose
lives in Dubai, a country more friendly with my own than Iraq is, so I am going to post Sunshine's medication over to her.
She will then send it to Sunshine in Mosul, this way it will be much less conspicuos, I can imagine that a small package sent from Australia to Iraq wouldn't be too reliable and probably be subjected to much 'observation' before it went anywhere....
anyway, that is one such practical application...
I will continue this post later!
