The Economics of Research, etc.
When doing some research, it is very difficult for mose students to access some content regarding their most important research. Worse, gadgets are not allowed without securing a permit from a certain body.
However, the economics of doing research applies here. Since economics talks about the allocation of resources, here, people are taught to survive through the OPAC, card catalogue and reading journal articles.
It is very important to value books, more than simply relying to the world wide web because not everything in the Internet is reliable. Typos, errors and ad hominiem fallacies are usually encountered, unless people rely on the most reliable sources such as the BBC News, etc.
Interpretation of the News
Usually, TIME Magazine, Newsweek, Telegraph, Inquirer and the Phil. Star are considered as print materials where students may use these sources. Usually, when reading newspapers, it should be in broadsheet. Broadsheet newspapers are more highly-regarded compared to tabloids. Most tabloids show exaggerated types of news, and traumatizes the reader.
Take Note: Reading the news is way different from watching the news. Watching the news needs precaution. First of all, these are current events that are simply misinterpreted. Usually, the news is viewed in a negative manner like, killing everywhere.
Usually, current events stress everyone, so most people do not watch the news to keep themselves updated. Others prefer not to watch it since the news that we watch are mostly… negative. Do you know what groups of people do not watch current events? Probably the nuns, because they are not allowed to access it, or maybe they might get themselves depressed. They don’t even read newspapers, but that does not make them ignorant. It’s only that the nuns simply focus on a simple life rather than focusing on political life.
