I. Introduction

The purpose of this study was to determine the implications of Social Media in some random students of Polytechnic University of the Philippines Sta. Mesa Manila. Social Media, it is everywhere these days. Students and teachers alike are accessing not hundreds, but thousands of social media sites, and these continue to multiply by the day. Our students are using Social Media to do more than simply share photos and chat with their friends-- they are using it to connect with family, to learn about global issues, or to hone skills and talents that they share with other teens. Because Social Media has rapidly become an essential tool in the world. Surely, Facebook might be a good place to look at pictures of your friends engaged in drunken, weekend antics and you can quickly tell people about how hungry you are on twitter, Linkedln has established itself as the platform where business professionals can powerfully extend their brands. While media use in an integral part of the daily life of adolescents, there are a number of risk associated with social media use, specially, negative effects on mental health, cyber bullying, texting/sexting, danger of sexual colicitation, and exposure to problematic and illegal content and privacy violations. The risk that teens face online are similar to those faced offline. However, the risk profile for the use of various types of social media depends on the type of risk, a teen’s use of the media, and the psychological makeup of the teen using them. It isimportant to note that teens most at risk often engage in risky behaviors offline and also have difficulties in other parts of their lives (Berkman,…...

... accomplish the action? Actors: Motive: Method: 18 PART ONE - THE BASICS OF THE SHORT ESSAY Setting: What was the time and place of the action? What did the place look like? What positive or negative feelings are associated with this time or place? These are only a few of the dozens of questions you might ask yourself about your “drama.” ( If it helps, think of your “drama” as a murder mystery and answer the questions the police detective might ask: what happened here? to whom? who did it? why? with what? when? where? and so on.) You may find that you have a great deal to write about the combination of actor and motive but very little to say in response to the questions on setting or method. That’s fine—simply use the “dramatists’ approach” to help you find a specific topic or idea you want to write about. If at any point in this stage of the writing process you are experiencing Writer’s Block, you might turn to the suggestions for overcoming this common affliction, which appear on pages 116–118 in Chapter 5.

Solid Waste Management

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Background of the study One of the most basic abilities of human beings is to classify and categorize objects and information into simpler schema, such that we can characterize the objects within the groups in total rather than having to deal with each individual object. ( s.pdf?sequence=1) In a developing country, the problems associated with solid waste management are more acute than in a developed country. Lack of financial resources and infrastructure to deal with solid waste creates a vicious cycle; lack of resources leads to low quality of service provision which leads to fewer people willing to pay for said services, which in turn further erodes the resource base and so on. The problem is further complicated by rapid growth in population and urbanization, which adds greatly to the volume of waste being generated and to the demand for waste retrieval service in municipal areas. However, more often than not, an increase in population is not matched with an equal increase in revenue for the local municipalities for waste management. Besides this, rapid urbanization means rapid growth of shanty dwelling units that are largely unplanned for, and add to the waste, health, and hygiene problems. Another significant factor that contributes to the problem of solid wastes in a developing country scenario is the lack of proper collection and transportation facilities. Improper planning coupled with...
