The advent of the twenty-first century was marked by a succession of conflicts and catastrophes that demanded unrestrained journalism. Hoskins and OLoughlin demonstrate that television, tarnished by its economy of liveness and its impositions of immediacy, and brevity, fails to deliver critical and consistent expositions of our conflicting times. Author Andrew Hoskins: Andrew Hoskins is Director of the Adam Smith Research Foundation. His research focuses on the theoretical and empirical investigation of today s new media ecology and the nature of/challenges for security, and individual, social and cultural memory in this environment. He has an established record of leading externally funded empirical research into the shifting relations between media, war and terrorism, media and radicalisation, and media and memory. His current work explores the relationship between connectivity, risk, and memory.
On July 11, 1767, in the North Parish of Braintree, since set off as the town of Quincy, in Massachusetts, was born John Quincy Adams. Two streams of as good blood as flowed in the colony mingled in the veins of the infant. If heredity counts for anything he began life with an excellent chance of becoming famous- non sine dîs animosus infans . He was called after his great-grandfather on the mothers side, John Quincy, a man of local note who had borne in his day a distinguished part in provincial affairs. Such a naming was a simple and natural occurrence enough, but Mr. Adams afterward moralized upon it in his characteristic way:- The incident which gave rise to this circumstance is not without its moral to my heart. He was dying when I was baptized; and his daughter, my grandmother, present at my birth, requested that I might receive his name. The fact, recorded by my father at the time, has connected with that portion of my name a charm of mingled sensibility and devotion. It was filial tenderness that gave the name. It was the name of one passing from earth to immortality. These have been among the strongest links of my attachment to the name of Quincy, and have been to me through life a perpetual admonition to do nothing unworthy of it. Fate, which had made such good preparation for him before his birth, was not less kind in arranging the circumstances of his early training and development. His father was deeply engaged in the patriot cause, and the first matters borne in upon his opening intelligence concerned the public discontent and resistance to tyranny. He was but seven years old when he clambered with his mother to the top of one of the high hills in the neighborhood of his home to listen to the sounds of conflict upon Bunkers Hill, and to watch the flaming ruin of Charlestown. Profound was the impression made upon him by the spectacle, and it was intensified by many an hour spent afterward upon the same spot during the siege and bombardment of Boston. Then John Adams went as a delegate to the Continental Congress at Philadelphia, and his wife and children were left for twelve months, as John Quincy Adams says,-it is to be hoped with a little exaggeration of the barbarity of British troops toward women and babes,-liable every hour of the day and of the night to be butchered in cold blood, or taken and carried into Boston as hostages, by any foraging or marauding detachment. Later, when the British had evacuated Boston, the boy, barely nine years old, became post-rider between the city and the farm, a distance of eleven miles each way, in order to bring all the latest news to his mother.
K.B. Chapman spent over three years studying and analyzing the filmography of Adam Sandler in preparation for her Masters Thesis. In Modeling Manhood: Adam Sandlers Portrayals of Masculinity and Manhood, she provides a concise look into the thinking behind the films. Her analyzation of Sandlers characters and the females he is attracted to in each film became a study in gender dynamics. Chapman avoids typical feminist rhetoric, looking instead through a lens of intelligent common-sense reasoning about day to day performances of masculinity in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century America. This book is invaluable to students of gender, sociology, psychology, and film, as well as news and entertainment reporters and critics.
In 1929, a Nietzsche-obsessed doctor, Friedrich Ritter, left his wife and his German homeland to flee with his mistress, Dore Strauch, to Floreana, a deserted island in the Galapagos archipelago off the coast of Ecuador. The pair of humorless vegetarians had become disillusioned with societys constraints and obsession with wealth, so living off the land far away from civilization seemed like the right antidote. But news articles about the couples escape, some of these unfortunately written by Ritter himself, gave other eccentrics the idea to follow. Ritter and Strauch were not amused when the German Wittmer family - Heinz, Margret (five months pregnant at the time) and their young son - crashed the couples private party. The misanthropic Ritter was especially annoyed, and even told Margret he would offer no medical assistance in case of complications during childbirth. The Wittmers, who wanted to live like the Swiss Family Robinson, were in turn highly agitated about the arrival of another group led by an exhibitionist, self-proclaimed Viennese baroness Eloise von Wagner-Bosquet. She brought along not only her three lovers, but also plenty of media attention with her habit of dreaming up outrageous stories about herself and her neighbors on the island, which she fed to reporters. The grandiose Baroness soon acclaimed herself Empress of Floreana and appeared not averse to appropriating property of the other island residents as well as opening their mail. She sported a riding crop and an ivory handled pistol which she was fond of pointing at people who displeased her. She soon had the Wittmers as well as Friedrich and Dore very nervous of her and her armed entourage. The Baroness could be very charming and became something of an international celebrity, much to Ritters distress as he had previously had the press limelight as the Robinson Crusoe of Floreana. In 1931, Frederick Ritters important articles were published in the newspaper Atlantic Monthly, Vol. 148. You can read these historic stories here.
