40 POINTS In this task, you will develop a press release about one of the issues from task 1. Your release doesn’t need to highlight every agency involved, but make sure that it summarizes the actions being taken by at least two UN agencies working on the issue. Your press release should include the following pieces of information: a short explanation of the issue, including why it’s important and how it came about at least two visuals that are relevant to or describe the problem (an image, a chart, or a graph) a short explanation of the activities being undertaken by at least two UN agencies that have been assigned to resolve the issue a conclusion that encourages the Security Council to continue supporting the work of the agencies Keep these suggestions in mind as you write your press release: Keep your press release short and to the point. It should call attention to any event or information that the individual or organization thinks is important. Include the date of the release in the upper-left corner. For example, “FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Month, day, and year.” Give your press release an attention-grabbing title. For example, you may write, “UN Calls for International Cooperation in Combatting Global Terrorism.” Write a headline that makes your audience curious to know more about the issue you chose. Write a first sentence that makes people want to keep reading. The first paragraph of your press release should cover the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the event or subject you’re trying to promote. Make sure that you use active verbs. That will help you direct the attention of your audience to your subject. Your subject should be clear and stand out to your audience. Start with the main facts. Add the details as you go along. Write in the third person, and include a fictitious quotation from a UN staff member. At the end of your first page write more, end, or the symbol ###. These words or the symbol informs the reader that the text continues on the next page. Center the word or the symbol you decide to use. Limit your release to 300 to 450 words. Proofread everything at least twice, and have a classmate, peer, or friend proofread it as well. Make sure your release is well organized and concise. Look at this example of a UN Press Release for further guidance. Submit your completed press release along with this activity.
Do you understand the risks of technological progress?
The new rise of technology is driving fast worldwide change. The technical difference has created new opportunities for multilateral practice, but the UN has on occasion fought to keep up with the rate of change. The conflict leads in part because the private sector and civil society actors are much at the play when it comes to technical innovation. Another situation is that current technologies here not only chances but also current threats to humanities and their freedoms. To effectively make up and change, the UN must decide where it will play an important part and where existing mechanisms and different actors are better positioned.
Living in a digital age is not a secret. As technology evolves at astonishing speeds, Jetsons-style society is no longer so viable. Some people think that technology is more harmful than good, but it is impossible to disregard all the benefits technology brings to us as seeds. Business, infrastructure, philanthropy are just a few of the industries affected by technology. One aspect of a society that benefits most from advanced technology in education. When teachers effectively integrate into the subject area, teachers grow into roles of advisers, content experts, and coaches. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun. Students are also able to collaborate with their classmates through technological applications.
But experts have found that in addition to making our lives more convenient, but there's a negative side to technology - it can be addicting and it can hurt our communication skills. Extended screen time can result in health ramifications like insomnia, eyestrain, and increase anxiety and depression.
"Mobile phones may be useful depending on the situation, but I believe that the harm of mobile phone outweighs the benefits of these reasons," said Vil Schoenheit, a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization, "It might be caught dangerous interference when used on a road. And I am distracted by it during the time I'm still in high school."
In October 2018, the City of London did a study at Ludgate Circus to ascertain how many people crossed the road while looking at their phones. The results: 4.5% of pedestrians walked into the road distracted from their surroundings by a smartphone. Or to be more precise 1,800 crossings a day (this number may include people crossing multiple times, phone in hand). (The Dangers Of Walking While Looking At Your Phone, 2019)
Too much time interacting with technology and too little time interacting with humans in the same room can lead to some serious social difficulties. For instance, girls age 8 to 12 who spend a lot of time-consuming media and attempting to multitask lower self-esteem and more difficulty socializing compared to their less media-driven peers, according to a study by Standford's researchers.
We face an intense and prolonged process of deliberation in order to work out how we want to proceed. That means getting the science right, of course, but it also means grappling with the profound ethical questions that some emerging technologies raise. More than ever, getting to grips with global risks means getting to grips with fundamental questions about what human society could or should look like.
