Mass Media Shift By VR Dolosa Communication technology is one of the most indispensable thing that human being has invented. The main purpose of its existence is to disseminate information to the public within the radius of its reach. Overtime, communication technology morphed into something different; multidimensional, mind-blowing multimedia. Not just only to project information to the society but also to entertain them and waste their time day after day. My father, in his younger age, luckily experienced the joy it brings to children like him. His parents bought a television for the whole family. It was a piece of heaven, very entertaining, and most of all time-consuming. Television was black and white, yet, at that time it was in its best. My father, together with his brothers and sisters, were all fan of watching animated shows, while his parents were up for news programs, music videos etc. The device somehow inhibits them from doing physical games outside with their neighbors and friends. Their eyes were always staring on the screen of that old CRT monitor of the previous model. Morning, afternoon until evening they can’t get rid of their selves in front of the television. Their parents sometimes reprimanded them to lessen the number of hours for their viewing and instead to do their homework and studies. But, who can blame the children? Who happen to have a technology which is not yet owned by many in the neighborhood. Moreover, my father told me some funny things in connection to being the first family to have owned a television in their neighborhood. Most of their neighbors actually gathered every afternoon in my father’s house to watch television. These people also found this technology exhilarating and entertaining. Sometimes, mothers carried their newborn just to watch news and other entertaining shows. They don’t care anymore if they created some sort of disturbance on the part of the host which was my father’s of course. Every afternoon without a miss they were situated themselves inside the house in front of the shining monitor. In today’s time, black and white TV has lost its value already as new trends in technology surfaced in the market. People in the present time prefer high definition televisions that could project millions of colors spectrum. The old model of TV can only be seen now in the garage or in the basement under the house shut down to oblivion. If we are going to evaluate the value of those old black and white models, we could see its benefits when it comes to the health of the children’s eyes. According to studies, more and younger people of today’s suffered from early signs of blindness because of the blue light projected from the high definition monitors. In retrospect, television can give happiness especially to the young ones. It is also a good source of information with the news program presented for diverse societies. It is indeed entertaining and grandeur. However, this device can obliterate the children’s time to play with their friends and their focus on school. It can be a cause of total waste of time for everyone who allured with its vibrant display. The lost of popularity of the old black and white model televisions gave rise to some problems in health due to the myriad hazardous artificial lighting emitted from the vibrant screen of the high definition televisions.
