Why is Greta Thunberg TIME'S Person of the Year?

TIME's former managing editor, Walter Isaacson, laid out the criteria for Person of the Year in 1998. The title goes to "the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse." While the results of online polls are considered, the magazine's editorial staff makes the final selection.

Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old climate change activist from Stockholm, Sweden. In August 2018, she skipped school and camped out in front of Swedish Parliament to bring awareness to climate change. "In the 16 months since," TIME wrote, "she has addressed heads of state at the U.N., met with the Pope, sparred with the President of the United States and inspired 4 million people to join the global climate strike on September 20, 2019, in what was the largest climate demonstration in human history."

Through her activism, Thunberg has legitimately influenced policy. Following her words to British Parliament and demonstrations with environmental group Extinction Rebellion, the U.K. passed a law requiring it to eliminate its carbon footprint.

"She is an ordinary teenage girl who, in summoning the courage to speak truth to power, became the icon of a generation,"TIME wrote.

Who reads time magazine?

When Time magazine first debuted in 1923, it was unique: perhaps the first mass-appeal weekly news magazine. The owners were conservative Republicans, and the magazine leaned in that direction to some degree, but there was a great interest in news and analysis, and Time provided it, in addition to interesting cover stories featuring major news-makers. Back then, Time's readership was probably middle and upper-class people from the age of 25 up. But as with many magazines, the audience got older, and Time went through several changes of style (and ownership) over the years. These days, Time is no longer conservative or Republican (nor is it liberal and Democratic). It is a mainstream news magazine, known for being generally objective, and it has an active website and excellent archives (great for researchers-- everything from 1923 onward has been digitized). The typical print magazine reader is in his or her 50s or even 60s, but the online readers are younger. Time is read by students, as well as by people who are interested in getting some new insights and perspectives on current stories.

What are the negative effects of media on childhood language development?

In America, the media do not teach language skills to children, and in fact do the opposite. For one thing, the media cannot respond to the children's use of language, can offer no correction or reinforcement, but only continue to blither on at them like a malfunctioning robot. And for another, American children listening to the media are exposed to the most unskillful, tongue-tied speakers of the language. Media people are famously inarticulate mumblers who must major in "Communications" in college in order to pronounce their own names clearly.

Some negative effects are that violence on television prevents a more comprehensive and larger vocabulary of children, because of the swearing, sex and drugs that are so rampant in television shows. Characters engaging in acts of violence, swearing, sex and drugs tend to be of lower than average intelligence (perhaps not including sex unles it is pornographic sex). They use short or even incomplete sentences and this is what the children pick up. They emulate the tough and bad language they hear on television at school among their friends. They fail to learn the art of complex and abstract thought. Sometimes it can be so ingrained in them that inadvertenly perhaps by habit a child at the Thanksgiving dinner table might say something like "Please pass the f----ing cranberry sauce." , without even knowing it was wrong. And of course texting has all but destroyed spelling and grammar in the English language, but don't get me started on that.

It is agreed that over the years electonic mediums such as television and cinema have certainly negatively impacted language development in children. Indeed in the past, swear words were used and meant as insults or verbal attacks, these days they are imitated out of habit, and the impact of using it is just to sound "cool" and be part of a crowd. It is important to note that those who commonly use swear words are unaware that it can be quite shocking to hear- if especially heard by some foreigners.

It reflects the failure of the family as a foundation unit, society as a community and the educational system as a country's backbone to postively unite together to instill and nuture the proper language skills needed for a functional future generation who will integrate into the community as a whole with proper language skills.

Teachers' jobs have become even more difficult as now not only do they have to teach the proper language development skills but have to try to undo the negative ones- before a student can comprehend the right skills. Teachers have come across students writing in short form computer language such as the following:

' I think u are g8.' ( I think you are great. )

Furthermore, children have become lazier in writing, as they are now using technical gadgets and computers to print words rather than form them using fine moter skills. Note, there is a specific way to form each letter, something they can't do or learn on a computer. This takes away language appreciation and has an effect on reinforcing language development skills through writing skills.

While parents have the first role of positive upbringing in the foundation unit of the family and introduction of proper speaking and writing skills to their children, the media is making it especially more and more difficult. Although, parents can play and should , rightly so, play a major role in their child's language development skills - by at least restricting the use of watching negative tv movies in the home environment and introducing more positive tv movies and programmes that have appropriate standards of language use such as classical movies ( some are very interesting), one has to instill and nuture positive interest too from an early age.

Having said that, children will eventually be exposed to the wider environment such as school and university but at least they would already have set language skills and can differentiate between the negative and positive of language use.

In the end it essentially depends on everyone in society to nuture good language development skills in children by setting the right example-by speaking and writing the correct way.

Can rounds be left in a magazine for long periods of time damage the magazine's function?

In some cases yes, as the spring within the magazine remains compressed. There is a greater risk when the magazine is left completely full which results in total compression of the spring. Most springs are metal (some are plastic) and lose some of their elacticity over time due to repeated use. Eventually the spring can become weak enough leading to the possiblity of a crossfeed.

Think about the springs on your car for example, eventually they have to be replaced, the same is true of just about any spring. For those that prefer to leave a magazine loaded, as in the case of home defense, the magazines should be cycled (1 or more empty, 1 or more loaded) every 5-7 days and/or only partially loaded. Though this does not completely relieve the possiblilty of metal fatigue in the coil mechanism, it can reduce the effect. (Always secure your firearms and ammunition responsibly.)
