How Does Television Affect Our Children Lives

Our world is in a time called the digital age, and humanity has lost the ability of human to human interaction.

The media sector of television has become very vast,Guest Posting and has various inventions that have gained popularity among its users. There is a television in just about everyone home in the United States. Jimy Tallal a television audience psychologist stated that by his research he found that there are seven reasons why people like watching television which are: relaxation, emotional engagement, time waster, curiosity, companionship, water cooler factor, and anticipation (La times). This is an issue because, the television stations want the recognition for the positive impact on children. What is the impact on children? I believe that there is an overall negative effect on the children, and their relationship with television. I will inform my peers about the history of television, who was the first educational television station, and how television affects our children. Television was developed by many investors, and engineers across the globe. The development overlapped with mechanical, and electronic principles. The television was a combination of sound, and picture. This signal was sent from a television tower to a viewer’s home. Television was viewed for entertainment mainly, but it was viewed for other purposes as well. Television at its early stages was shown in black, and white. Color televisions were invented in later years. The sets or monitors of the television started small, and gradually became larger as time went on. The quality of early television was not that great, because the mechanical television was at its basic stages. Television was a new invention, and new updates were made gradually as time went on. World War II stopped further development to the mechanical television model, so the progress of the television or growth was at a stand still. Advertising remained being aired by radio telecasting, and the progress of the war was reported on the radio also. The price of a television remained high as well; so the average person could not afford the new invention called the television. After World War II, the price of television dropped and the new invention was mass produced. The nineteenth century invention blossomed; advertising began to be one of the television’s stations biggest profits. This gave way for the television to begin to be enhanced further, and more program ideas to be added. In 1934, television became all electronic; all the mechanical sets were of no use at this time. In 1941, the Federal Communication Commission licensed television stations to broadcast their signal into many homes by an assigned channel. Each television station was given a number to use and their frequency was spread out between each television station’s transmissions on the air. At first some of the stations frequency interfered with each other’s channel, so the Federal Communication Commission issued new numbers. The television broadcasting era became an immediate success. The world began to broadcast television signals from stations by an assigned channel. The first licensed public television station in the United States was WCET of Cincinnati, Ohio. WCET began broadcasting on July 26, 1954, from Music Hall, but with the help of the Cincinnati community and William H. Alders. WCET was governed by a board of trustees which were 53 member institutions. The Television station was assigned channel 48, operated on analog, and transmitted on 400 kilo watts of power. The station stood for The Cincinnati Educational Television owned by The Greater Cincinnati Educational Television Foundation. There were numerous television stations that operated on VHF, but WCET operated on UHF because all the VHF channels were taken in the telecasting radius in the region. VHF meant very high frequency and UHF meant ultra high frequency on the band to transmit television signals. According to The Federal Communication Commission, the major disadvantage of UHF is its broadcast range and reception, often referred to as line-of-sight between the TV station’s transmission antenna and customer’s reception antenna, as opposed to VHF’s very long broadcast range and reception which is less restricted by line-of-sight. So in order to view WCET’s programming, a viewer had to either buy a converter box or buy a television that allowed viewers to use both frequencies. At this period of time only 500 television sets could receive the signal. The first program was called Tel- A- Story which had an adult telling a story to several children. The television station aired one program every 15 minutes, but most of the programs were on five hours a day, five days a week schedule. There were other programs like news, sports, weather reports, and do- it- yourself shows, poetry workshops, jazz clinic, and business trends. From 1959 to 1960 there were over 30 hours of programming for the viewer to enjoy. WCET was Ohio’s first educational television station reaching more than 2 million residents, 470,000 students and 37,000 teachers. WCET became closely tied to the Cincinnati Public Schools system; however, it was also broadcasted to living rooms all across the greater Cincinnati region. The primary mission was to provide high quality educational programming. In school telecasts, productions go through the same process as WCET’s other productions, but the planning and production are handled by the Department of Instructional Television Services. In June 1976, WCET was serving over 180,000 students in more than 300 schools in southwestern Ohio. Many of the series that were produced for educational purposes began to be distributed through national libraries to schools across America. The educational television station CET is the first to be licensed in the region of Ohio, but was not the first to be licensed in the nation of the United States. The first educational television station was KUHT on June 8th 1953 in Houston, TX. According to the Federal Communication Commission on average, children spend about four hours a day watching television. Sixty eight percent of eight to eighteen year olds have a television in their bedrooms; sixty three percent of households the television is on during meal time. In fifty three percent of households of seventh to twelfth graders, there are no rules about watching television. Fifty one percent of households have the television on most of a twenty four hour day; therefore, children on average watch almost one point five hours more per day than children without a television in their bedrooms. Watching television is replacing activities that a child usually would be doing in their life. Excessive television viewing can contribute to poor grades, sleep problems, behavior problems, and obesity. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a parent should not place an infant or toddler in front of the television. The concern is that target programming for children has a negative impact on the development of the child’s brain. Television can discourage and replace reading; reading helps healthy brain development. A child who watches a lot of television spend less time reading and being read to, this can cause a child to less likely be able to read. According to the research studies of Georgia Better Brains for Babies children learn language through experience. When adults read to children, neurons connect and a vocabulary builds. When adults and children read a favorite book again and again, connections in the child’s brain become stronger and more complex. Talking about the story also contributes to brain development. As adults discuss the storyline with children, even more new words are introduced. Vocabulary increases, and children starts to learn the process of conversation. Watching television or listening to a recorded story does not have the same benefits of live conversation. The interaction in give and take conversation is the key experience that wires the brain to develop language. The Department of Education states that language skills are best developed by reading, and interactions with others in conversation or play. All television shows education or commercial replace physical activity in a child’s life. The metabolic rate goes lower while watching television then just sitting doing nothing. According to the research study by Dr. Elsie Taveras of Harvard Medical School children who sleep the least and watched television instead had the better chance of becoming obese. The study required real time information from mothers of children from six months old till two years old. The researchers found that five hundred, and eighty six of the children slept an average of twelve hours or more a day. Three hundred and twenty nine of the children slept less than that, but seven percent of the longer sleepers were obese by age three. Seventeen percent of the children who watched two or more hours of television a day became obese by the age of three.The Family Education Network argues that watching television while eating junk food with no physical activates lead to obesity. The Kaiser Family Foundation found in their studies that television viewing is associated with alt

Do you find yourself renting a lot of movies? Whenever the new released movies hit the theaters, many people find themselves sitting in front of the big screen with a tub of popcorn in their lap and a boat load of money gone from their wallet. The prices we pay to watch a new release blockbuster has gotten out of hand (or is that out of wallet). The Hollywood film industry is an enormous business and the movie producers are more than willing to gamble millions of dollars making movies because they know that movie lovers like ourselves are willing to cough up their hard earned money to go the movie theater and watch their film. If we don’t fork over our cash at the movie theater the movie moguls have a back-up plan. Can you say DVD?

Video palaces like Blockbuster are only too happy to help us spend the money that we tried saving by not going to the movie theater. Can’t get to your local video store to rent or buy new released DVD’s? No problem, the movie industry has that covered too. Blockbuster and Netflix will mail them right to your mailbox. It used to be cheap to enjoy a good movie, but no more. Well, I for one have had it.

They are not a bunch of B rated movies like you would expect for free movie downloads. These are mostly all blockbusters like “Braveheart”, “Gladiator”, “Shawshank Redemption”, “The Green Mile”, “The Harry Potter Movie Series” and “The Lord of the Rings Trilogy” to name just a few great movies that I first watched online. I also enjoy watching TV movies online as well as the TV series and just like the online movies I watch and then copy afterwards, I do the same with the TV shows I like. I now have a couple of seasons of “24″ plus “Lost” and “Heroes” (my favorite). Keep reading and learn how I do it.

So how you can save money and watch movies online 24/7, plus build yourself a massive movie library that will make your friends jealous? The first thing you want to do is find a reputable unlimited free movie downloads review site. They review all of the different sites that offer free downloadable movies and recommend the very best ones. There are a lot of scam sites that say you can watch movies online for free but when the smoke clears you end up paying a lot of money or are downloading someone’s backyard quality videos. I will leave you a link for a good movie review site in the resource box below.

Next, I am going to tell you how to find an unlimited free movie downloads site that has “Value”. All of the really good unlimited free movie downloads sites charge a one time only membership fee you need to join prior to getting all of your free movie downloads. These one time membership fee’s only cost between $35 and $50 and before you begin running around the room yelling “I knew it, it’s a Scam! It’s a Scam!” allow me to explain to you exactly what the membership fee is all about and how it benefits you in your quest to download free online movies.

When you join a membership to download free online movies, the first place you will enter is called the members area. A good members area should have everything you will require to watch movies online, download free movies and copy or burn movies to CD’s and/or DVD’s. There should plenty of easy to understand step-by-step tutorials, manuals and/or videos to show you how to download free online movies. In addition to gaining access to all of your unlimited free movie downloads, the members area is where you will also gain access to the databases for free TV show downloads, free software downloads, free music and music video downloads as well as free ringtones, wallpaper, eBooks, game cheats, music lyrics and more. It costs money to keep the members area up to date with the latest movies, music, games and more, not to mention giving you around the clock technical support in case you run into any problems.

Finally, it can get very expensive to keep a website going online. When I began my website it cost me $15 in hosting fees per month. As my site grew in popularity and my traffic increased, so did my hosting fees, and a year later my site costs me over $200 per month. If my site costs that much to host, I can only imagine what an unlimited free movie downloads site costs with the amount of traffic they receive on a daily basis.

I told you all of this rather boring stuff so you could understand why there is a membership fee. The world would indeed be a nicer place if people we didn’t even know were willing to spend all of that money so we could download free online movies, TV shows and more. As it is, look at the value we are getting. Remember my personal library of 60 movies? If you wanted to build a similar sized library of Hollywood blockbuster films, it would cost you roughly $1200 to purchase them at your local video store.

By joining an unlimited free movie downloads site, for less than $50 you not only get to download free online movies, one of my favorite free movie download sites lets you watch online movies while you are waiting for your downloads. If you break it down, my library of 60 crystal clear DVD quality movies cost me less than $0.90 per movie, and that is not including my free TV show downloads, free games, software, music, music video’s plus everything else I have downloaded for my personal use. Here is the best part. I can continue downloading free online movies, TV shows and the rest for a lifetime with absolutely no more fees. Talk about value and these sites are completely adware and spyware free. We were just talking about my movie collection, but this can be your collection of free online movies that we are talking about. You can gai
