The topic that I chose for my reaserch paper is the limitations that should be applied to the parizi. I chose this topic because I wanted to see how much the pree and media have acces to the celrites. I want to fight for the celberite cause I deserve they need more privercy.
My topic is the limitations that should be applied to the paparazzi. I wanted to see how much the

press and media have access to the celebrities. Celebrities are just people like us, and they

need their privacy. Sometimes you’ll see some really personal in magazines that you will say to

yourself “how do they know that?”. I chose this because i want to see the paparazzi can push a celebrity and how much they can

learn from the scandals and the relationship problems.

I limited my research to just what the paparazzi should be limited on and why. I’ll get most of my research from interviews, magazines, and some websites. I’ll try to interview some people from the press and ask them questions like “ how much of

these peoples lives do you know about “and “ do you think there should be some limits on how

much you can know about these people”.

I’ll see if i can get some interviews of people who have already interviewed drama filled celebrities like Brittany Spears and "the always in the fighting mood" Chris Brown.

I want to find out how far the paparazzi is limited, if any at all, and see why they should be

limited.

I’ll learn how to make a website and how interviews work and the skill behind them. What will mostly interest me will is when i can find out the future affects the paparazzi will have on the media. With the media being

the most useful source of info for the people, the paparazzi could have more power, or they could lose that power and become more

limited on the things they can do.

In the New York Times article, “Do Paparazzi's Have Too Much Freedom?”, it talks about the debate whether the paparazzi has too much freedoms or they don’t have enough freedom. The argument for “Yes” describes the evil, twisted minds of the paparazzi. It explains that they “stalk” the celebrities and wait for the right moment to catch them cheating on their spouse or finding a new secret lover, which if could be achieved could be sold to magazines and websites for “millions”. On the other hand, the “No” argument is that the 1st amendment protects the freedom of the press. Paparazzi is named for the Italian word that originally meant the buzzing of a mosquito. Paparazzi are journalist, and even though it may be a little inconvenient to be followed by them, celebrities benefit greatly from the press (Burke,Ottoman, 2013). This shows the different views on the paparazzi. In the BBC news article, it talks about kids of the celebrities should be protected from the paparazzi. It talks about the bill that was passed to into a law which lays out penalties for taking photos and video of a child without parental consent and in a harassing manner (Garner, 2013). This provides an example of how the paparazzi can take things too far. In the Newsweek article "Paparazzi with drones" it discuses the rumor of the gossip site TMZ having a drone used for spying on celebrities at the poolside. This drone could possibly be a way for TMZ to get all its info without the use of the paparazzi. The new drones could very well be the way the paparazzi will spy on the celebrities in the future. There is no way journalist wouldn't do this; they could fire all the people that work them (which would create more unemployment) and save a lot of money to just pay for a couple of drones with one payment than having to pay workers a salary. Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman said " if TMZ does, so will someone else" (Dickson, 2012). This show why the paparazzi should be limited. In the article "The Steven Tyler Act" on ONTD.com, it talks about how people can now be sued for taking photos of other peoples private lives in an offensive manner. The Hawaiian senators approved this law. Steven Tyler said he wanted to protect the privacy he had as a public figure (Thomas, 2013). This shows the impact the paparazzi has on celebrities lives. In the New York Times article " Should the private lives of famous be off limits" it talks about the wife of Britain's Prince's wife. Paparazzi photographers had taken pictures of Kate Middleton topless and sent them to tabloids in France (Doyen, 2012). This shows how personal the paparazzi can get. In the Betsy.com article "Limits for the paparazzi" it talks about both sides of the argument. It says that the paparazzi can change a nobody into a somebody (Allen, 2012). This shows the power of the media. In the CBC News article "Judge challenges new California law that limits celebrity chasing" it talks about paparazzi chasing Justin Bieber. The judge said California's law too broad so he dropped some of the charges (Raef, 2012). This shows how some laws against the paparazzi aren't specific enough. In the article " New Anti-Paparazzi Law protects celebrities" talks about the law creating a "boundary". It says this law is supposed to maintain privacy, reduce harassment, and protect both celebrities and paparazzi (Herzog, 2013). This shows more limits being pushed on the paparazzi.

How It Relates To North Carolina The paparazzi relates to North Carolina in many ways. The paparazzi is attracted to celebrities and major events. A good example of common paparazzi in North Carolina could be newspapers. Its not the usual "chase you around cities and stalk your life" paparazzi, but they do basically the same thing. For example, if something big happens in your local area, the newspapers send out interviewers and journalist to that event so that you can know everything there is too know about that event. So when you think about it, the paparazzi does the same thing. North Carolina is full of big sports names and teams. When the teams are doing well and they have big games, sports interviewers and sports journalist are all over those games. Even though the sports interviewers and journalist don't have the classical paparazzi characteristics and attitudes, they still would do a lot to do to get that "big shot" on the sports athletes because they can turn around and go sell that photo to some magazine or newspaper for a good days work.

How It Relates To The World

Paparazzi being related to the world is like peanut butter going with jelly, its always been together. Every month, there is countless number of accounts where celebrities all over the world have their personal lives exposed. News stories like the Princess of England being exposed (naked) on international news. The paparazzi only did that because of their sole motivation, money. Another example of celebrity exposure is the Mayor in Canada incident. He was caught doing drugs on video and the media blew it up. The news was all over the world about this. Without the paparazzi pushing for those big shots, the world not have known about the incident. The paparazzi can take things way too far when they get involved in celebrities love lives. All over the world, in every country there are celebrities, and with the celebrities there are reporters and journalist trying to get some dirt on the celebrities . The most common forms of paparazzi in the world is mostly journalist. They are the main source of info where we get all of our dirt from. Without them, we would only know what happens in our country, even smaller than that, we would only know about things in our town. That's the power is social media.
...................................................................................................................................................................................
How It Relates To The US Paparazzi is very significant in the social media in the US. The paparazzi are called many things; annoying, sneaky, mean, but hey do get the job done.The paparazzi will go to very far limits to get that one photo so they could sell it for a major profit. Most people see the paparazzi as those little creeps that need a life, but if it wasn't for them, you wouldn't know about all these celebrity scandals. There are so many stories of celebrity chasing all around America. Most celebrities are pushing for new laws against the paparazzi. Celebrity Halle Berry is getting a law passed in California where the paparazzi can't photograph celebrities children.without permission. In other cases, the paparazzi is the victim. They can push some celebrities to points where they just can't take it anymore. Justin Bieber has had many paparazzi problems. One where he was being followed for 45 mins by a reporter and had some choice words to say to that reporter. Another was when he was involved in a heated argument with a reporter in England. There's also the most popular one where a man was killed trying to take a photo of Justin Bieber's car, and now Bieber is trying to get tougher laws passed on the paparazzi. Justin Bieber isn't the only celebrity that's trying to get tougher laws passed. Steven Tyler is trying to get tougher laws passed in Hawaii called the Steven Tyler Laws. The paparazzi will do almost anything to get what they want, and most of the paparazzi stories come out of California because that is where most of the celebrities in America reside. Which is coincidentally the state that has the most anti-paparazzi laws.

Sound of Love

...thought I was a patient man, but I was not until I met a nine year old boy. He let me know that people should pay attention to the small things, even a smile or a sound. I was almost tortured to the point of madness by my neighbors when I arrived in Omaha. I lived in a cheap place so I had to put up with the noise. One of my neighbors is a guy from Nepal, an international college student who only goes to school on Tuesdays and works six days a week for tuition and bills. Ironically he was a delivery man whose car engine sounded like an asthma patient with a megaphone. Every night when I had just fallen asleep in bed, the car would be back with its “cough” to wake me up. Another neighbor was Korean and bought a saxophone; he liked early morning practice the best. Every night I was devoid of sleep from drowsiness by the car, and I was woken up by the saxophone’s weeping sound in the early morning. I often, out of anger from sleep deprivation, wanted to make my way over to speak with them both, but didn’t right away. That car is the Nepalese guy’s career; and the saxophone is the Korean guy’s hobby. How could I let them give up their career and hobby? On behalf of my well-being, I decided to move out. I vented my grievances to Julie who is one of my friends, and I hoped that she could help me find a good place to live. I stayed in her townhouse; it was a wonderful place in downtown Omaha. It is quiet and beautiful, close to Omaha’s Old Market; people can take a......

...have a case or not. The reason they are there is due to docket call. Docket call is when the “judges assigned the indigent cases” (Braswell, Miller, & Pollack, 2006). Mr. Deffens takes court appointments along with his private clients. While at the court house you realized that Deffens is very flirtatious with a women named Julie. Julie is the court administrator for Judge Anderson. Later on, the intern went back to the court house to file papers and Deffens asked the intern to drop something off to Julie. It was an envelope with her name on it, nothing official. The intern soon realized that it was not sealed, the flap was left open and you see five ten dollar bills and a note that read “Armstrong”. After reading that note, you made a connection with the name Armstrong. Deffens had received an appointment for a case named Armstrong and the money was a type of compensation or “kickback” for the appointment. The intern then talked to Deffens about what he/ she found and he basically tells the intern that it happens all the time and everyone does it. He also tells the intern how everyone is webbed in this somehow; Judge Harris pays Judge Townshend’s wife seventy-five thousand dollars a year for two days a week and he, Deffens, buys lunch and takes the judges out to his box seats for NASCAR and basketball.

...love for school and strives to be the very best in his class. The male child is about to turn seven years old and is in the first grade. The child attends a school that the mother and father are not employed and the grandparents are responsible for picking the child up after the school day is complete. The parents are very involved in the students’ school work and provide support for the student every evening when they are at home. In visiting with the student before we began our reading assessment I found the student to be very mindful and attentive. We discussed the students’ interests and I found the student was very interested in video games and games in general. During spare time on weekends the family likes to play games together and the student was very proud to tell me that the family owned an x-box and he could beat his brother in any game that they chose to play. So I decided I would make my assessment into a game and would challenge the student to see how many questions he could answer correctly. I decided to focus my assessment on phonemic awareness. Phonemic awareness is defined as an understanding that spoken language and words are made up of individual sounds (Reutzel & Cooter, 2011). In student performance the student needs to have the ability to pick out and manipulate sounds in spoken words and language (Reutzel & Cooter, 2011). I broke my assessment into three parts that consisted of letter names, letter sounds, and phonemic awareness. I feel......

The Warm Bodies

...A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human - setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world As much as I enjoy "The Walking Dead" on AMC and movies such as "28 Days Later," one of my ongoing complaints about the explosion of the zombie genre is the general mopery and overall predictability of those ever-staggering creatures. They lurch. They snarl. They sniff the air for the scent of human flesh. They pounce and gnaw. They pound windows and doors, and express frustration when confronted with 10-foot-high cyclone fences. And then they get shot in the head and die. That's pretty much it. We almost never get inside the rotted mind of the zombie or see things from the zombie point of view. They're forever penned in as the Big Metaphor. One of the many exhilarating pleasures of "Warm Bodies" is the flipping of that script. This is a bloody fresh twist on the most popular horror genre of this century, with none-too-subtle echoes of a certain star-crossed romance that harks back to a certain bard who placed a......

It was set in Austria in the 1930’s. The movie is a biography, drama, family, musical, and a romance. There were three main actors in this film. The three were Julie Andrews (Maria), Christopher Plummer (Captain VonTrapp), and Eleanor Parker (The Baroness). The director was Robert Wise. Wise has directed other popular movies like West Side Story and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The film won five Oscars, twelve awards, and had another eleven nominations. The Sound of Music has a four-star movie rating. The Sound of Music does a stupendous job of creating a cute love story mixed with a musical, has a very noticeable character development, is interesting and catchy, but it incorrectly portrays the true story behind the movie. The movie begins with Maria, a nun, living in an Austrian convent. Maria does not fit well into the nun life. She was sent to the VonTrapp’s to be a governess by her Mother Superior. When Maria arrives at the house, she finds the children to be very rude and unwelcoming. She finds the father as very strict and uptight.

It was a good thing that I left an hour ahead of schedule. I asked a gentleman for help and he told me where to go and was extremely kind. After I finally arrived to The Frozen Food Store, I was kind of disappointed. I thought I would be working at this huge company but it was just a hole in the wall. It was crappy.

...Early June 2011 my grandfather suffered a minor stroke at the age of 76. He was quickly admitted to John Muir in Walnut Creek, a few days went by and he only seemed to be getting worse; when unfortunately my family’s worst nightmare became a reality. My grandfather endured another stroke, but this time it was much more serious. This put my family in an enormous amount of emotional distress, everyone was terrified and we had no idea what was going to happen to my grandfather. It happened so fast, all we wanted were answers. But, when we got answers, they were far from what we wanted to hear. A few days after my grandfather’s second stroke my family met with his doctors who showed little hope or optimism. They told us we were lucky he was still alive, but with the condition he was in now we were never going to see him walk again, he would probably never talk again, and he was definitely never going to be able to live independently ever again. As he kept explaining to us what was going to happen to my grandfather’s life, the words cut like daggers. My cousins and I watched our parents bewail with sorrow as we just sat aside our grandfather’s hospital bed feeling helpless and confused. About a month went by while my grandfather was still in John Muir, and his progress was nothing to rave about. We would visit him daily, but he never seemed to be getting much better. He couldn’t eat, talk, or move, but we just reminded him to keep fighting and we knew, with hope, he would be......
