Privacy Isn’t So Private Anymore

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2009 by MidnightSun

Now there has to be some limit.  Nude photos of Cassie and Rihanna being leaked? You can’t damage a rep more than to have some not so nice pictures of yourself and the fact that these girls are stars in their own right makes it even worse. These girls deserve some privacy and looks like they aren’t going to get it. What in the world is going on? Celebrities are human beings as well, don’t they deserve some level of respect? How are they getting these pictures? This is bananas. 

You have to be careful about who you give or send certain photos because they can resurface in the most possible way. Once something is posted online, you can’t undo the damage that has been done and reposting it is not gonna help these girls heal the way they need to. Everyone deserves privacy and some level of respect even if they are celebrities. Spreading them around is not helping anyone.

Social Networking Sites

Posted in personal, point of view with tags , , , , , on May 2, 2009 by MidnightSun

Yes we have heard of these types of sites where you can interact with people all over the world with just a click of mouse and a peck of a keyboard. The three biggest, MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter.  These website become the most popular thing among teenages, young adults, and even some in their early 30s, hint, hint, love you too sis!

I started out using MySpace for awhile then I got wind of the Facebook trend and I just recently got wind of Twitter and starting using that networking site. Of all these, my favorite would have to be Facebook and Twitter and I am never on MySpace anymore.

If you start using these sites, please be careful with what you post such as pictures and who you talk to, especially if you are a teenager because you never know who could be watching because once you post it online, you can’t take it back.

Are We Defined By Our Qualities?

Posted in life, personal, point of view with tags , , , on April 30, 2009 by MidnightSun

We are all human and we have been born with certain qualities and traits that we develop, whether at a young age or when we are an adult. We can be defined by physical traits as well as personal traits.

There’s something called the “halo effect” and the “horn effect”. The halo effect an extension of an overall impression of a person (or one particular outstanding trait) to influence the total judgment of that person. The effect is to evaluate an individual high on many traits because of a belief that the individual is high on one trait.

The opposite of halo effect is the horn effect. The horn effect whereby a person evaluates another as low on many traits because of a belief that the individual is low on one trait which is assumed to be critical.

Let’s say a person who is physically strong and that is a good trait and there for people assume that you must have other good traits as well. In the reverse, if you aren’t strong as other people, then they will assume that you aren’t good at anything else whether intellectually or work related.

This is how some people think and you can’t judge people based on their qualities and assume that this is how they work or act all the time.

The definition of halo and horn effect were taken from http://www.envisionsoftware.com/articles/Halo_Effect.html
