The book “un- Spun finding the facts in a world of (disinformation)” by Brooke Jackson, and Kathleen Hall Jamieson is a very interesting book that will show you the true political war that many people don’t know about. Basically there are the truths behind the many scams people try to get quick money. “Surely it is asking too much to expect the advertiser to describe the shortcomings of his product,” By wrote by David Ogilvy in his confessions of an Advertising Man.” To me that mean that advertiser don’t want to explain their whole product because it might make the people not wanting to buy their product. Starting off this book I thought it was going to be boring and just not interesting but I started reading Chapter 1 “From Snake Oil to Emu Oil”. At first, I really thought it was a cheap way two make money on some snake oil. I thought Rattlesnake King was a smart person to advertise this product but then as I started reading the chapter it was too good to be true. He really started convincing me that the product was only 50 cents a bottle, and that he was really making money off of people. But when I saw his wanted ad about getting arrested for violating the federal food and drugs then I knew he was doing something illegal. Throughout the entire book I really learned a lot about the media, and advertising. I really didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes of the media, and advertising until I read this book. I learned that the people producing the product tell consumers lies and what they want to hear so the product can sell producing them money. Some people don’t read all the facts that they need to before they purchase the product because they don’t think it’s important. But unfortunately, they prey on people and mislead them into buying their products. I am one of those consumers that don’t do a lot of research on products that I buy. I rely on what is shown on television or in magazines which isn’t good because they can give you the wrong impression. By then, you are hooked into purchasing the product. I call this false advertisement. Companies like this sometimes will tell you half the truth. It’s especially important to read the fine print as it relates to their return policies. Companies will put special clauses in there about if the product is damaged or doesn’t work. But if you don’t read the fine print then you can sometimes be left with an ineffective product. So, I encourage everyone to read the fine print even if it’s borrowing or time consuming, because that way they won’t have a reason to take advantage of you, and you will make a decision on buying the product from your…
Question Topic: UN Security Council
1. The UN Security Council has succeeded in establishing itself as the prime guardian of international peace after the Cold War, however, its effectiveness has been mixed. This “prime” position must be considered in light of the fact that there is no other international body that has any perceived legitimacy to negotiate on issues of war and peace. The Security Council is unique in that, from a legal perspective, member states have given up elements of their…

Dear Kim Jongnu
I’ve noticed that the Totalitarian System is part of your country. A Totalitarian System is when
they control everything in that country. Some examples of a Totalitarian System would be the
way people in your country put wired fences by the river to china because people would try to
escape North Korea. Why does your state have really nice markets but do not have anything for
sale inside them? It’s meant to be just for display, but it fools people who don’t know the reality…

U.S. outdoes Europe at helping
Muslims into the mainstream
By Omar Jamal
The recent deaths of two teenagers in a Paris suburb, and the subsequent string of riots and carnage, sparked debates about whether similar riots could happen in the United States.
Most of the people involved in the riots were of Muslim background, and therefore everyone had doubts about the real cause of the unrest. Almost 6 million French Muslims and Arabs are concentrated in the Paris suburbs.
I am afraid that…
must be prepared
to address this situation head on. Addressing the UN General Assembly, The New Zealand reaffirmed the National Party government’s support for the US drive to war against Syria. It is
clear that the UN Security Council’s lack of agreement, has made it a powerless bystander to the
Syrian tragedy and in a way, shielded the Assad regime. New Zealand regards Russia and China
as major parts of this disfunction, which vetoed UN resolutions that would have paved the way
for military intervention…
but even so, the nation of Tunisia is still in need of help in regards to political and social aspects. Egypt is another nation who is in a similar situation like Tunisia, in that Egypt is under political turmoil as well; however, in recent months UN Human Rights Council has voiced their opinions in regards to the rising tensions during the protests about the new draft constitution, and even so there is a lack of participation within main actors in the Egyptian government.
