One For the Gamers

If you haven’t been following the debate over R18+ games in Australia, well I’m sorry: you’re just not a TRUE GAMER.

See what I did there? Use your outrage for good! Blog about it!

Another Idea For Your Final Assignment

And proof that blogging isn’t always a waste of time.

It’s very clear that these are not my words.

Or Lincoln’s, incidentally.

The Final Assignment

Enjoy, everyone:



Yes, it does matter who reports the news. Generally, most TV channels report the same news stories with similar information and format, but it’s how the presenter brings the news into your lounge room that counts. Some news reporters go about their story in a certain way that draws people in. They tend to have this certain connection with their viewers which keeps them watching. You’ll also find that most reporters will have their own perspective on the story.

People form different opinions on news channels and the way the media reports the news to the public. You’ll always get those people who just say well who cares all they do is read off a screen so why does it matter so much?  The majority of people who watch the news enjoy being able to have some connection with the reporter.  People are always saying the news does an excellent…
