Social network vs social media
Social media may be a driving force behind a record number of teenage deaths on the railway, according to the British Transport Police. Seven teenagers were killed on Britain’s rail tracks in the last year, and last month young three graffiti artists died at Loughborough Junction after being hit by a train, which could cause this year to continue the trend. A further 48 young people received life-changing injuries after trespassing on the tracks in the last year. A BTP spokesperson told The Telegraph that social media “could be a factor” in influencing young people to trespass, as they launched a new campaign with Network Rail, urging teenagers and children not to play on train tracks. The BTP has previously warned the public against taking photographs for social media on the tracks. A Network Rail spokesperson added their research shows young people do not realise the dangers of trespassing on the tracks, which causes them to take risks they would not … [Read more...] about Social media may be behind record number of teenage deaths on railway, says British Transport Police
opinion Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic Published 3:58 p.m. UTC Jul 15, 2018 It's tempting to say that the relationship between President Donald Trump and the news media is turning into a clown show, but there's nothing funny about it. We got yet more evidence of this Saturday, as the White House played its version of the playground favorite "we play by my rules or I'll take my marbles and go home." Preschool playground. To explain: It's no secret Trump holds the media, with the obvious exception of his beloved Fox News (a network that returns the love), in great contempt. 'I don't take questions from CNN' If you needed a reminder, Trump provided one Friday during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. CNN's Jim Acosta tried to ask a question. Trump refused to answer, saying, "CNN is fake news. I don't take questions from CNN. ... Let's go to a real network." At which point he called on John Roberts of ... Fox News. Acosta often seems to relish … [Read more...] about Donald Trump vs. CNN … again. Now on a world stage and with a hint of totalitarianism.

Love Island has proved so successful in recent years that other countries have been desperate to get in on the act. Scandi countries will have to wait a bit longer for the drama to hit their screens, but Love Island Australia is underway and proved a major hit this year. Filmed just miles away from the UK version, it’s fair to say the show has been on fiery form. UK and Australian versions follow the same format but they're world's apart when it comes to the contestants and the fallouts on screen. So which version should you be watching? Access On a basic level, Love Island UK is what you should be watching because, well, it’s the easiest to view. Love Island airs nightly on ITV2, at 9pm, with a half round-up half unseen episode on the Saturday night. Love Island AU is on Nine Network, which is hard to access outside of Australia meaning that UK fans of the show rely on clips on social media and news articles. The drama … [Read more...] about Love Island UK vs Love Island Australia: Which one is more ‘lit’?
