Oeffentlicher Meinungsraum ist der Raum zum Meinungsaussdruck.Oft darf man im Offen die Wahrheit nicht sagen. Zu sensiblen Themen
darf man nicht sagen was man denkt.
In Kenia hat die Medien viel dazu beigetragen,Meinungen im offen bekannt zu geben.Sie informieren ueber schlimme Geschehnisse,wie den
Terroristenueberfall in ,,Westgate" oder ueber Korruption unter der Polizei und der Politiker.
Verschiedene Fernsehsender bieten dem Publikum Meinungsfragen zu verschiedenen Themen,die kontrovers sind.Die Zuschauer schicken
dann ihre Meinugen und Antworten per Handy.
Auf diese Weise traegt auch das Publikum dazu bei,das Land zu regieren.
Music....Music...Music!What is life without music?Lemme tell you....stress,tension,BOREDOM...simply unbearable.Why is music interesting then?Let's see....you get to express yourself especially in situations which people find embarrassing.Have you ever considered why musicians are very romantic?The likes of Jason Derulo find it very easy to connect with their audiences through music. Wouldn't you want such a life?Every note carries a message,every melody has the power to move the world,every word has an impact so strong..it could soften a heart of stone and every song takes the world to a whole new level.
Through music,you get to be just YOU.It brings out the crazy part of you through dance which is the dessert of music.
Well,I guess you now know that MUSIC IS LIFE AND LIFE IS MUSIC!!!!
"Everything is an art and a science in its own right." Ironic,right?Who said that analytical minds cannot be artistic and artistic minds be analytical?Think about this:have you ever thought of learning the "Kinetic Theory of Matter" in the form of dance?Has it ever occurred to you that you could better understand the laws of sound by paying attention to Electronic dance music?
All can attest to the fact that it is much easier to vividly remember the scenes from your favourite movie compared to a Biology concept. Imagine a Biology class where students stage a play to explain the work of the white blood cells in the body.For instance,the white blood cells could play the role of the police while the germs could be the bad guys.
In my literature class today, we had a discussion about whether or not art is important in a student's life. well, in my opinion, it is. being in the 21st century, anybody could make a career out of art. For example, last Saturday's newspaper featured one Owuor Arunga, from the humble Kisumu town, to making headlines as a top jazz artist in the united states. Imagine, if he had listened to anybody's criticizing sentiments that music would take him nowhere....then he wouldn't be playing for Macklemore - the amazing hip hop artist - today. World famous painters like Picasso have moved the world with their most exquisite creations and their most eccentric display of the feelings and emotions with simple strokes of a paint brush.
In my country, the average teenager is advised (expected, rather) to first pursue a "lucrative" career path, for example medicine, before "indulging in hobbies". However, Michael Jackson at the age of 9, began to move and inspire people with his music, which is still celebrated today, even after his tragic demise. We are DEFINITELY not saying that education is a waste of time, because, inventions that are useful in our modern day world are as a result of the painstakingly hard work of young people who passed through school. We are just trying to put across that not all people are as gifted in academic work. Some people work better through artistic innovations. So before you tell your child that the path they wish to take is ridiculous, imagine, that ten years from now, they could be going down in the guiness book of records for some fantastic achievement and remembered for centuries to come. e.g our great poet and bard William Shakespeare.
