Description

Hacking and trolling; mass murders and bullying. What do these have in common? One theory holds that these are all "deviant" social behaviors, occurring both online and off, which have purportedly been brought about or exacerbated by our new media environment. Such aberrant behaviors seemingly give us ample reason to fear digital and social media. But is technology to blame? We will grapple with this question as we investigate how our understanding of new technologies and media is socially shaped and, in turn, how new media might influence our social behavior. We will begin by studying how similar panics about "old" media (books, film, television and even the written word itself) set historical precedents for these current fears.

Perceptions of Terrorism Threats at the 2004 Olympic Games: Implications for Sport Events

Description

Keltner, 2001), we investigated effects of anger and fear on risk judgments of 277 attendees at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Attendees who reported being fearful or feeling unsafe at the Games displayed increased risk estimates and associated concerns, whilst respondents expressing defiance and anger produced opposite reactions. Male respondents had less pessimistic risk perceptions than did females, and men were more likely than women to report that the increased security measures detracted from their Olympic Games experience. Nationality had minimal effect on perceptions of risk except in the case of the host country, with Greek respondents reporting fewer concerns for safety but greater awareness of the security measures present at the Games. The discussion focuses on theoretical, methodol

‘Knowns’ of Sports Mega-Events

Description

This article uses a piece of writing in The Guardian newspaper by the philosopher Slavoj Zizek ('The empty wheelbarrow', 19 February, p. 23, 2005) about the former US Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, as a framework by which to reflect critically on major international sporting events, or sports mega-events. It suggests that it is an academic's duty to look critically at the assumptions, beliefs and misrepresentations that are often suppressed, or, perhaps more accurately, repressed, about sports mega-events. The article is based on an analysis of research and writing about sports mega-events, some of which offer more comprehensive reviews of the literature. It is argued that in their enthusiasm to host and support sports 'megas', politicians, senior administrators of sport, corpora

Angelo Reciti, Italian shoemaker, arrested for threatening his wife

Description

Name: Angelo Reciti Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 18 April 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-69-Angelo Reciti The Shields Daily News for 19 April 1905 reports: "ALLEGE USE OF THREATS AT NORTH SHIELDS. HUSBAND AND WIFE CASE. At North Shields Police Court today, Angelo Reciti (29), residing at 8 Clive Street, was charged on a warrant with unlawfully using threats towards his wife Elizabeth, whereby she fears he will do her some grievous bodily harm, on the 18th inst. Sergt. Geo. Murray spoke to apprehending the accused about a quarter past eleven o'clock last night. In pursuance of a warrant, he proceeded to 64 Elsdon Street and there found the accused concealed under a bed. He got him out and he thereupon became very violent. Witness had to get the assistance of two other police officers to hold him. The wife of the the prisoner had been obliged to leave the town in consequence of his threats towards her. At present she was staying in Jarrow. The accused was remanded until tomorrow to give his wife an opportunity of attending the court". This wasn't the first time that the Magistrates had become involved in Angelo and Elizabeth Reciti's marital disputes. The Shields Daily Gazette for 26 October 1904 reported: "At North Shields to-day Angelo Reciti, Italian shoemaker, was charged with deserting his wife Elizabeth. Mr G.W. Chapman defended. Complainant, who is only 16, said they had been married since March and resided at Camden Terrace. On Saturday last, at defendant's request, she went to visit her mother at Jarrow, and on returning in the evening she found nothing but the four walls. The defendant had removed all her furniture and her clothing. She was a present living at 57 Church Way. By Mr Chapman: She admitted having declined to live with her husband if he removed into Clive Street. Defendant said that five or six weeks ago he went to Manchester in search of employment and when he returned he discovered that his wife had sold off the furniture and gone to live with her mother. He wished to go into Clive Street for convenience in his business, and when he spoke to his wife about removing she declined to go with him. The magistrates granted a judicial separation, the defendant to pay his wife 5s a week. Defendant was also charged with threatening the life of his wife's sister and was bound over to keep the peace for six months".

Robert Lightly alias Golightly

Description

Name: Robert Lightly alias Golightly Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 27 May 1904 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-29-Robert Lightly AKA Golightly For an image of Lightly's accomplice, Anthony Russell see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/19172779382/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily Gazette for 28 May 1904 reports: ?TWO MINERS HAVE A NIGHT OUT. FRACAS ON A NO. SHIELDS FARM At North Shields Anthony Russell (27) and Robert Lightly (24), pitmen, Percy Main, were charged with being concerned together in stealing a duck, value 10s, the property of Mr Elwin on the 22nd inst. Joseph Elwin said that at 4.25 am he was awakened by his father, who told him that he had heard three shots fired. He got up and looked out of the window, and saw two men, each carrying a gun, on the field of the farm. He went out with another lad, and on getting up to men he saw that one was carrying a bundle, from which he saw a hare?s head protruding. He asked him why he had shot the hare on his father?s land. They made no reply and walked away. He then gave information to the police. On getting back to the farm he missed a duck. An officer spoke to arresting the defendants and charged them with stealing a duck. Lightly replied that Russell shot the duck and took it away. Russell replied that he burnt it. Mr Duncan, for the defence, said that there was no doubt they shot the duck, but it was not with a felonious intent. It appeared that on the Saturday night they had taken too much drink, and on the Sunday morning they got up at four o?clock and took their guns into the fields. Russell had seen a duck and the temptation had been too strong, and he had shot it. The Bench committed both defendants to prison for 14 days. The prisoners were afterwards charged with threatening Joseph Elwin. The prosecutor said that when he accused the two men of trespassing on the farm they both threatened to shoot him if he did not get out of their way. Lightly said that he would drill rabbit holes into him. Mr Duncan, for the defendants, denied the charges, and stated that Elwin challenged the men to fight. The defendants both denied the charge on oath. They were both bound over in the sum of 10 in their own recognisances and sureties of 10 each, or in default committed for 14 days; they were also ordered to pay the costs for both sides or in default go to prison for seven days. The defendant Lightly was charged with assaulting Elwin by striking him in the chest with his fist and with the muzzle end of the gun. The defendants were next charged with trespassing in search of game at Chirton Hill Farm on the same date. Mr Duncan submitted that the defendants had already been sufficiently punished for their offence, and the summons for trespass ought to be withdrawn, especially as it was taken out against the wish of Mr Elwin. The Chief Constable contradicted the latter statement. Mr Duncan said that Mr Elwin had stated in Court that he did not wish the case to proceed and therefore the summons could not stand. The Chief Constable sad that he himself was the informant in the case and he intended to go on with it. Mr Duncan took the ruling of the Court on the point, and Mr Kidd decided that the Chief Constable was acting within his rights. After hearing the evidence, the magistrates fined defendants 10s and costs or in default 14 days imprisonment to run concurrently with the other commitments?.

The four 'knowns' of sports mega events

Description

This article uses a piece of writing in The Guardian newspaper by the philosopher Slavoj Zizek ('The empty wheelbarrow', 19 February, p. 23, 2005) about the former US Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, as a framework by which to reflect critically on major international sporting events, or sports mega-events. It suggests that it is an academic's duty to look critically at the assumptions, beliefs and misrepresentations that are often suppressed, or, perhaps more accurately, repressed, about sports mega-events. The article is based on an analysis of research and writing about sports mega-events, some of which offer more comprehensive reviews of the literature. It is argued that in their enthusiasm to host and support sports 'megas', politicians, senior administrators of sport, corpora

Perceptions of Terrorism Threats at the 2004 Olympic Games: Implications for Sport Events

Description

Keltner, 2001), we investigated effects of anger and fear on risk judgments of 277 attendees at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Attendees who reported being fearful or feeling unsafe at the Games displayed increased risk estimates and associated concerns, whilst respondents expressing defiance and anger produced opposite reactions. Male respondents had less pessimistic risk perceptions than did females, and men were more likely than women to report that the increased security measures detracted from their Olympic Games experience. Nationality had minimal effect on perceptions of risk except in the case of the host country, with Greek respondents reporting fewer concerns for safety but greater awareness of the security measures present at the Games. The discussion focuses on theoretical, methodol
