Celebrities are able to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle, but fame comes at a price. Famous people are always being hounded by the paparazzi who invade their private lives in order to satisfy the curiosity of the public. Some people have called for restrictions to be put on the press, while others are against the idea.
No one can forget the pain brought by knowing that our beloved Princess Diana was killed in a car accident in Paris when fleeing from paparazzi. Because of this tragedy, people began to consider whether the press has been given too much freedom. Until now, paparazzi are still invading celebrities’ private lives, even more serious than before. Therefore, some are calling for restrictions to be put on the press while some disagree. In order to reach a fair and reasonable conclusion, we must first look at pros and cons of this issue.
First of all, some agree with the proposal of putting restrictions on the press because it helps to safeguard our basic human rights, one of which should be privacy. The fact is that no one has the right to exploit one’s privacy. It is even ridiculous and unfair to say that celebrities being the well-known people have to sacrifice their privacy to satisfy the curiosity of the public. We should always remember that privacy is something that every one of us could enjoy, let alone the celebrities. Moreover, these days no one can deny that animals are gaining more and more rights. Even the government has set up laws to protect them from being abused. Similarly, human rights of the celebrities have been invaded seriously by the paparazzi, why can’t the government do the same thing to protect them?
Secondly, restrictions to be put on the press will not only benefit the celebrities, but also the whole society – every one of us. If we don’t do something to stop this worsening problem or just keep our arms folded, the problem will once…...

When the Paparazzi Go Too Far

...Caitlin Birch Dr. Weinstein English 202 6 October 2012 When the Paparazzi Go Too Far 1. Introduction Everyone who is interested in pop culture and the entertainment industry knows who the paparazzi are. According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, the term paparazzi is defined as “a free lance photographer who aggressively pursues celebrities for the purpose of taking candid photographs.” The term actually came from a film from the 1960’s called ‘La Dolce Vita’, directed by Federico Fellini. A character in the film was a news photographer named Paparazzo. Paparazzi target celebrities and public figures that are in the spotlight. In recent years, the paparazzi have taken their job of snapping photos to another extent. They will go to any length to get the shot of a celebrity, even if that means stalking a celebrities’ every move. The media’s intrusive and insistent attention towards celebrities has caused celebrities to lose their privacy. An anti-paparazzi law is the best solution to help celebrities and public figures who entertain us gain their rights and privacy back. 2. Power of the Media Its almost impossible for us not to be under the power by the media. Every event that happens in the world is brought to everyone’s attention faster with the technology that has enhanced our way of receiving media. The media is everywhere we turn and it makes us question how we will be able to control the media so that its a proper influence on our lives. 2.2......

Paparazzi Friend or Foe

...Abstract The world was stunned in 1997 at the death of Princess Diana. Many blame the forever-controversial assault on the local paparazzi. Throughout the years the community of celebrity film and journalistic stars have all faced a menagerie of photographers and videographers hounding their every move. Some would say it is relentless search for the perfect picture no matter what gets in the way. Though hearsay, as we notice the headlines from time to time from celebrity scuffles with reporters to people of power and even royalty, the documenters recording the documenters capture the real essence of what victims of media pressure go through. The online dictionary defines paparazzi as a freelance photographer who follows famous people hoping to get a newsworthy story, especially something shocking or scandalous.” Paparazzi: Should they have limitations? Throughout the decades there have been legal bouts concerning the media and its so-called closeness or distancing with their subjects of interest. Whether it is a celebrity, politician, religious figure and or an everyday Joe that may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, the public has rights that protect them from privacy intrusion. Do we really know these laws and can they be enforced. The right to privacy as in the 1st amendment clearly states we are all allotted a freedom of speech, press as long as we do not use either with seditious intent. Cornell University describes the First amendment as one......

...Limitation Although this market research has been finished already, there are still some limitations that cannot be avoided. Firstly, in terms of questionnaire design, the total amount of questions in the questionnaire maybe too large, and it costs respondents about 3 minutes to finish all of them. Especially when they saw the 10 tables, many of them showed their impatience to finish the questionnaire. In addition, some respondents cannot quite clearly understand what they should do on the tables. Thus, it indicates that the table questions may not be so well designed and made respondents confused about that. It would be better if the table questions could be simplified. Secondly, regarding respondents, many people were not willing to respond questions through the whole process of conducting the survey. It may result in some problems when analyzing demographic data. According to the results, it is obvious that the ages of the respondents are focused on 18 to 35. It is difficult to get some feedbacks from people in other ages, especially elderly people and people with a young baby. Thus, their purchase preference and intention are not clear in the analysis. Moreover, some respondents finished the questionnaire in a hurry and they even did not read the questions clearly. Among all the questionnaire paper, there are approximately one fourth of the respondents did not finished all the questions required. Thirdly, many respondents consuming in Wal-Mart have never heard about its......

Paparazzi Limits

...The paparazzi are photographers who will certainly do anything to achieve their aim, gaining the profit from the photos of famous people and their families. They sell the photos to tabloids or anyone else who is willing to pay them a high price. (** Thesis Statement) This report will discuss and examine an opportunity of whether paparazzi could be seen one day in Thailand. Firstly, it will remind us the significant power of media in the present world and explain how people who relate to the process of generating the media unexpectedly support the paparazzi initiation in the media world. Furthermore the report will reveal the origin of the word “paparazzi” that was released first time in Italy and shortly expanded across the country in the negative terms. Then it will refer to some of apparently violent cases from the celebrities who became unfortunate victims of paparazzi; Princess Diana and Catherine Zeta Jones with her husband – Michael Douglas. It will then talk about the media ethics, moral, the definition of privacy and human rights, including show the conflict of celebrities privacy and public rights to know the celebrities lives. Lastly this report will offer the idea of the paparazzi motivation of who support their actions; the readers, the media commercial agency and paparazzi themselves.

Ecommerce Limitations

...benefits to organisation, individual customers and society. One of the major benefits of e-commerce and m-commerce is the ability to solve complex problems that have remained unsolved for generations. Among other advantages to organisations include; Global reach, cost reduction supply chain improvements, customisation/personalisation, efficient procurement, improve customer service and relations and lowers communication cost Why companies still stick to Brick-and-Mortar Operations? Despite the numerous advantages of e-commerce and m-commerce most companies are still sticking to their “Brick and Mortar” operation in developing countries like Ghana because there are some major limitations and barriers to e-commerce and m-commerce adoption. These limitation and barriers can be grouped into six main categories; Social and Cultural, Technical, Economical, Political, Organisational readiness, and Legal and Regulatory. Social and Culture: organisations have been reluctant in adopting ecommerce because most of them are not aware of the benefits of ecommerce and m-commerce adoption. There is also lack of popularity for online sales and marketing as well as lack of external pressure from suppliers and customers. Some customers like to feel or touch the product thus motivating companies to still keep their brick-and-mortar operations. Also customers are used to shopping or transacting business at a brick-and-mortar organisation. Technical: there is lack of......

Term Limitations

...Do you think there should be term limitations for every elected government official? Well, as we all know one person’s opinion may be different from another person’s opinion. My opinion is that I think term limitations are a good thing, but it also can be a bad thing. Keep reading to find out the reasons that support my opinion. A term limit is a legal restriction that limits the number of terms an officeholder may serve in a particular elected office. When term limits are found in presidential and semi-presidential systems they act as a method to curb the potential for monopoly, where a leader effectively becomes "president for life". Sometimes, there is an absolute limit on the number of terms an officeholder can serve, while, in other cases, the restrictions are merely on the number of consecutive terms. The reasons why term limitations is a bad idea is because, it limits the choices of people the public has to vote for. If you have a really good public servant and you want to keep him, you can't. You have to get rid of the good candidate and replace him with someone who's inexperienced. By having term limits, we are eliminating the people who have wisdom and experience from political life. Like any job, it takes years to be good at what you do. About the time our elected officials have become good public servants, we're required to throw them out. The reasons why term limitations is a good thing is because, term limits ensure that politicians do not become......

The Annoyance/Dangers of the Paparazzi

...The Annoyance/Dangers of the Paparazzi Would you like if people were constantly bombarding you with cameras? Lets say you’re enjoying a nice meal with your family and then suddenly a group of “photographers” come up and just start snapping an endless amount of photos and there’s nothing you can do about it. The so-called “photographers” that I’m talking about are called the paparazzi. The paparazzi first started with a man named Ron Galella, nicknamed America’s first paparazzo. Galella’s first target was actor Marlon Brando; he began harassing Brando one day telling him to take of his glasses for a photo. Brando wasn’t playing his games, not only did he refuse, but he also punched Galella, knocking out five teeth. (Talese 97) Yes, what Marlon Brando did was a little excessive, but in his defense you shouldn’t bombard people with your camera, giving them orders and whatnot, it’s called common courtesy. The paparazzi have gotten way out of control over the years, yes, they have a job, but there should be limits. Of course, the paparazzi see it differently. They have little concern for celebrity’s privacy. The way they see it, is they have a job to do and money to earn. They believe celebrities like being photographed, but they pretend they don’t. They also believe they’re making celebrities more famous, therefore successful. (94) I’m almost positive celebrities do not enjoy getting their pictures taken, as for saying they pretend, well that’s just right stupid. For......

Paparazzi and Privacy

...Name Professor Title Date Paparazzi and Privacy Creeping cautiously through the tall grass in the jungle, she breathes with anxiety and apprehension. With this size and repute, she could stay full for a very long time; the family included. As she waits for the prey to show up its head, she steadies her head up ready for the big catch. A catch, perhaps worth a fortune, at least it will sustain her for some time. Seconds later, it becomes a perfect catch. The paparazzo has got what he wanted, that image, a photo worth thousands of dollars, or even more. Menacingly rude and pushy, these photojournalists earn their living through stealing images of celebrities. They hound and stalk a celebrity for the main purpose of taking their pictures and selling them to the mainstream media for a hefty sum. Just like the lioness hunts, so does the paparazzi. They behave in a similar way in all aspects: from identification of the target, up to the end of the game (death of the prey or photo of the celebrity). In short, they make their living by aggressively pursuing a celebrity for the aim of obtaining candid photographs for sale. The paparazzi are a jigger in the toe. Paparazzi do not care what the celebrities do when taking their photos, in fact, they rejoice when they get a photograph of celebrity in an anomalous circumstance. They plant spies in every joint in cities so that they can get information on their whereabouts.In most cases, waiters and......

Limitations of Science

...The Limitations of Science Mankind has never devised a better tool for solving the mysteries of the universe than science. However, there are some kinds of questions for which scientific problem solving is unsuited. In other words, science has limitations. There are three primary areas for which science can't help us answer our questions. All of these have the same problem: The questions they present don't have testable answers. Since testability is so vital to the scientific process, these questions simply fall outside the venue of science. The three areas of limitation are * Science can't answer questions about value. For example, there is no scientific answer to the questions, "Which of these flowers is prettier?" or "which smells worse, a skunk or a skunk cabbage?" And of course, there's the more obvious example, "Which is more valuable, one ounce of gold or one ounce of steel?" Our culture places value on the element gold, but if what you need is something to build a skyscraper with, gold, a very soft metal, is pretty useless. So there's no way to scientifically determine value. * Science can't answer questions of morality. The problem of deciding good and bad, right and wrong, is outside the determination of science. This is why expert scientific witnesses can never help us solve the dispute over abortion: all a scientist can tell you is what is going on as a fetus develops; the question of whether it is right or wrong to terminate those events is......

At War with the Paparazzi

...At War with the Paparazzi Benjamin Biwer 4320316 JOUR3745 (Section 001) “I can’t go to war with paparazzi” (Craig). This statement, made by Daniel Craig, unintentionally (and unknowingly) references the power struggle between celebrity spin machines and the paparazzi. In his piece, “On the Function of the United States Paparazzi: Mosquito Swarm or Watchdogs of Celebrity Image, Control, and Power”, Andrew Mendelson analyzes the function of paparazzi and the role these popular culture fixtures have on society and celebrity. Specifically, Mendelson examines the “war” between highly controlled celebrity images and candid, raw offerings provided by the paparazzi. While an argument can, and should, be made regarding privacy issues, pictures obtained by paparazzi provide a necessary checks-and-balances system to the cunning world of celebrity and entertainment (Mendelson). To this end, Mendelson’s argument that journalists (i.e. the paparazzi) should “look more deeply” into celebrities and popular culture events is completely valid. This paper will provide arguments that support Mendelson’s view of the paparazzi – first, by exploring the issues presented by celebrity-controlled personas; and second, by reinforcing the need for fact checking, as exists in political and professional realms. Mendelson provides a thought-provoking piece that challenges conventional wisdom on the paparazzi (i.e. privacy and boundary issues). The most poignant of his arguments describes the tactics......

...Limitations and constraints of marketing In this task I will be explaining the laws that focus on protecting the customers when they are buying a product or service from things such as fraud and identity theft. There are several limitations and constraints in the consumer law that help the customers understand their legal rights and they protect them. Laws are constantly changing to ensure that businesses do not take advantage of their consumers. Sales of goods act 1979 This law states that; the goods must be fit for purpose, which means that for everyday purpose, and also for for any specific purpose that can be agreed with the seller at the time of purchase. The goods must also match any sample or images that are visible to the consumers, such as in brochures and leaflets also the description of the product must match the product. The goods that you buy must be in perfect working condition. An example of where the act has been broken could be; A seller who was a specialist in contemporary art and they offered a paining and this individual claimed it to be by the artist who was German. The buyer makes it clear that he was not an expert on German paintings; although the seller should examine the painting himself before putting the painting up for sale. The buyer brought the painting which later on turned out to be forgery which is in fact illegal. The court of appeal held that he could not cover his purchase price from the seller since he had not relied......

Knowledge and Its Limitations

...Jacqueline Aldaco Anthony Bullock Classics 28 27 April 2012 Knowledge and its Limitations Greeks could never know exactly what their gods were up to, so they often had to travel to visit oracles that were able to give them insight. Greeks saw knowledge as a form of power that helped them gain some control over their lives. To ancient Greeks knowledge was such an important aspect of life they had a divinity symbolize it. Apollo was the god of knowledge and medicine, in many Greek myths the quest for knowledge, or attaining too much knowledge altogether was a common source of tragedy. Ancient Greek cultures believed that even if mortals had the knowledge they sought, once they acquired it they did not know what to do with it. There are many examples in Greek myth that plainly show how knowledge eventually leads to tragedy. For instance, Oedipus’ search for knowledge of the king’s murderer ends up becoming his demise and the major source of pain in his life. Oedipus needed to find out why Thebes was suffering from a plague, so he sent Creon to the temple of Delphi to ask Apollo what he could do to life the plague from his people. As the oracle of Apollo Tiresias goes to Thebes and tells him that the person responsible for the death of the prior king, king Laius was living amongst them, and the plague would only be lifted once they found the murderer. In the quest for the knowledge that would save his people, King Oedipus summoned the messenger that was given......
