Women Reading a News Paper Filter Bubble is when search engines control what you see using your personal meta data such as your location, past websites you visited, your search history and the money corporations used to manipulate search results that you see. This Information about the User can also be sold to second and third parties without their consent. This also causes users to become more separated from information that disagrees with their viewpoints, effectively isolating them in their own cultural or ideological bubbles. The choices made by algorithms are not transparent. They are filtering information just like the TV does, and it's mostly for their benefit and not yours, which is another good reason why this website is extremely valuable.

Popping the Information Bubble (youtube) - Censorship

Echo Chamber is a metaphorical description of a situation in which information, ideas, or beliefs are amplified or reinforced by communication and repetition inside a defined system. Inside a figurative echo chamber, official sources often go unquestioned and different or competing views are censored, disallowed, or otherwise underrepresented. The echo chamber effect reinforces a person's own present world view, making it seem more correct and more universally accepted than it really is.

We want certain information to be personalized and individualized at times, but not so much that the information becomes isolated or polarized. Even a Social Network can be a type of filter bubble when your friends all think alike. So your Sphere of influence may be blinding you.

The worst type of bubble is the Knowledge Bubble, where a persons lack of knowledge keeps a person blind to everything beyond the bubble. Learning can pop that bubble and reveal a world you never knew existed.

Media Literacy; Information is Layered, so you need to see beyond the surface of words and images. You need to see the whole picture and visualize all the layers underneath. Then you can accurately filter what information is needed, and avoid being distracted by irrelevant details and misinformation.

What is the News Supposed to Be Like?
3 Ways to Fix a Broken News Industry: Lara Setrakian (video and interactive text)

Multimedia Multitasking involves using TV, the Web, radio, telephone, print, or any other media in conjunction with another. Also referred to as "simultaneous media use," or "multi-communicating," this behavior has emerged as increasingly common, especially among younger media users. Simultaneous Multimedia Multitasking, for when you have to Search Far and Wide, and Dig Deep.

Human Multitasking is doing more then one thing at a time, or doing several things at once. Like talking on the phone while writing an e-mail. Or cooking several things on the stove at the same time while maintaining temperatures and cooking times, and measuring ingredients and preparing other food items as part of a big meal. Or playing several musical instruments at the same time. Multitasking is a human ability to perform more than one task, or activity, over a short period of time. Dual-Task Paradigm (memory flaws). Cognitive Flexibility. Is multitasking bad for you? No. But abusing your ability to multitask is definitely bad for you. Just like learning the wrong things is bad for you and doing the wrong things is bad for you, especially habitual things that you are not conscious of. You have to learn how to use things effectively and efficiently, like technology. One of the bad things about multitasking is that your awareness is fragmented and unfocused, so mistakes can easily happen. The good thing about doing things at the same time is that it can save time and increase your productivity, but only when you fully understand each task separately and have mastered their function and use.

Multitasking Computer Multitasking is a concept of performing multiple tasks (also known as processes) over a certain period of time by executing them concurrently. New tasks start and interrupt already started ones before they have reached completion, instead of executing the tasks sequentially so each started task needs to reach its end before a new one is started. As a result, a computer executes segments of multiple tasks in an interleaved manner, while the tasks share common processing resources such as central processing units (CPUs) and main memory. Multitasking does not necessarily mean that multiple tasks are executing at exactly the same time (simultaneously). In other words, multitasking does not imply parallel execution, but it does mean that more than one task can be part-way through execution at the same time, and that more than one task is advancing over a given period of time. Even on multiprocessor or multicore computers, which have multiple CPUs/cores so more than one task can be executed at once (physically, one per CPU or core), multitasking allows many more tasks to be run than there are CPUs. In the case of a computer with a single CPU, only one task is said to be running at any point in time, meaning that the CPU is actively executing instructions for that task. Multitasking solves the problem by scheduling which task may be the one running at any given time, and when another waiting task gets a turn. The act of reassigning a CPU from one task to another one is called a context switch; the illusion of parallelism is achieved when context switches occur frequently enough. Operating systems may adopt one of many different scheduling strategies, which generally fall into the following categories: In multiprogramming systems, the running task keeps running until it performs an operation that requires waiting for an external event (e.g. reading from a tape) or until the computer's scheduler forcibly swaps the running task out of the CPU. Multiprogramming systems are designed to maximize CPU usage. In time-sharing systems, the running task is required to relinquish the CPU, either voluntarily or by an external event such as a hardware interrupt. Time sharing systems are designed to allow several programs to execute apparently Simultaneously. In real-time systems, some waiting tasks are guaranteed to be given the CPU when an external event occurs. Real Time Systems are designed to control mechanical devices such as industrial robots, which require timely processing.

Free Speech Zone are areas set aside in public places for the purpose of political protesting. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution states that "Congress shall make no law... abridging... the right of the people Peaceably to Assemble, and to Petition the Government for a redress of grievances." The existence of free speech zones is based on U.S. court decisions stipulating that the government may regulate the time, place, and manner—but not content—of expression.

Suffragette were members of women's organizations in the late-19th and early-20th centuries which advocated the extension of the "franchise", or the right to vote in public elections, to women. Franchise is a statutory right or privilege granted to a person or group by a government (especially the rights of citizenship and the right to vote).

Women Letter Writers in early modern Europe created lengthy correspondences, where they expressed their intellect and their creativity; in the process, they also left a rich historic legacy. Over time, a large number of women's correspondences have been made the subject of publications. Some among them ignored the literary value of these missives that were sometimes circulated by their recipients.
