    1. The difference among these areas was race. In Detroit, "redlining" was a practice that efficiently barred specific groups—African-Americans, Eastern Europeans, Arabs—from access to mortgages and other financial resources. We can still see landmarks such as the Birwood Wall, a six-foot-high wall explicitly built to mark the boundary of white and black neighborhoods.

      My goodness, I can hardly imagine that even in the internet access there's still a discrimination. What more in the real wolrd.

    1. Search is one of the most under-examined aspects of power and consumer protections online, and regulation in the provision of information to the public through the Internet.

      I agree with this that Search is the most powerful method you may always wanted to do. To know more, to discover, to think, and to evolved new ideas. Then stop being racial and bias especially in informaion.

    1. the data show that men are more likely to experience name-calling and embarrassment, while young women are particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment and stalking.

      It's true, the men usually embarrass them in their names and their faces. Young women vulnerable with this and abuse by anyone in social media.

    1. Now new research into the personality of trolls suggests building their empathy for others could be one way to modify their behaviour.

      Trolling is way for them to giving some comments in the topic weather it is good or bad, but don't have any courage to show the real identity.

    1. Trolling behaviours typically include deliberately posting inflammatory comments and argumentative messages in an attempt to provoke, disrupt and upset others.

      This thing usually do in social media destroying one's persona with negative comments, yet doesn't show the real identity. Coward

    1. Both papers are aware of the more international characters of their websites and stories are adapted to it.

      I agree with this statement. You can explore more stories through online.

    1. Why is there so much interest in the future of newspapers, you may wonder. Obviously, they represent significant social artefacts of our age, and so their rapid change is interesting in itself. But more significantly they can be seen as a case study, or a warning from the future, about the impact of the Internet on well-established, often highly regarded, businesses.

      We began to experience the evolution of the newspapers these days. One good thing about this is newspapers can be read online with exact content from the printed one. You are always up to date on what's happening in world right now. Avoid fake news though.

    1. The idea of planned obsolescence is nothing new. But the use of “repair prevention” as a method of making products obsolete is growing, say right to repair proponents. Many companies that manufacture electronics—anything from laptops to refrigerators to your car’s onboard computer—now have restrictions that prevent consumers from having them fixed anywhere besides a licensed repair shop.

      The repair prevention is an act of a manufacturer to protect their products from the person who are not licensed or not authorized personnel to repair such product. It is also protect them from the fraud repair guy that could ruin the reputation and the design of the manufacturer's product and the damage could have been worsen.

    1. First year social work students reported considerable uncertainty about what was expected from them with regard to academic skills. Interview participants stated they felt like they had to “learn” these inherent assumptions during their initial weeks at university, while simultaneously learning course material and navigation of the institution as a whole.

      On this point, skills can learn by day-to-day experience of the social workers, somehow they have to learn their job theoretically and fundamentally. Degree is the validity of your knowledge and experience.

    1. Most OER degree programs are at community colleges, which serve student populations from lower income backgrounds, for whom the high cost of textbooks is an especially difficult challenge. But we’ve also supported OER degree programs at universities that serve some of the most disadvantaged student populations in the United States, and through the OERuniversitas, which is partnering with universities from around the world to offer a free, OER-based degree to everyone.

      I believe in this statement. Hoping that the OER degree would allow by the government to be adopted. It will give a great opportunity to the less fortunate people for them to have an education.

    1. a liminal space where lurkers, novice learners, are looking to make sense of the MOOC by observing and practicing skills and behaviours that are associated with active participation

      I am totally agree with this, for you to learn something on it, first observe but definitely after observation then participate.
