The Presence of Carnism on Portuguese Television  [PDF]
Rui Pedro Fonseca
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.38004
Abstract: This paper presents the results of a research about carnism on Portuguese television. It begins by presenting a case study of MasterChef program (TVI) which conveys carnism in both practices and language, and from which some characteristics of their dominant representations are described. Subsequently, the paper presents the indicators of the presence of carnism in the Portuguese television programming between 2013 and 2014, in the TVI, RTP1 and SIC channels. The data reveals that there is hegemony of the carnist ideology in the main channels of the Portuguese television. Also, the samples collected and viewed show no mention of the impacts of carnism in its various dimensions (non-human animals, environment, human health and sustainability).
Pay Television Among Low-Income Populations: Reflections on Research Performed in the Rio de Janeiro Favela of Rocinha
Bethany Lynn Letalien
Contemporanea : Revista de Comunica??o e Cultura , 2003,
Abstract: This paper presents the results of a study performed in Brazil's most notorious shantytown (or favela), Rocinha, located in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Over 150 residents with pay television subscriptions responded to questions regarding their television viewing habits before and since subscribing. The author contends that pay television was used primarily to gain better or increased access to Brazilian programming and a small number of particular types of foreign programming. She questions whether pay television viewership in Rocinha should be characterized as evidence of cultural imperialism and suggests that, in places such as Rocinha, where having access to only broadcast stations can effectively mean having access to a single television channel, it could be useful to extend conventional notions of the "digital divide" to include non-"interactive" media such as television.
Sou visto, logo existo
BECKER, Beatriz
Contemporanea : Revista de Comunica??o e Cultura , 2005,
Abstract: This work comprises a media study through the discussion of the complex interactions between politics and television viewing the representations of the social events produced by the news. The study of the media coverage of Deputy Roberto Jefferson’s declarations to the Ethic Commission, through the registration of the current national television news, including Jornal da Band, Jornal da Record and Jornal Nacional, proposes an analysis of their reports and their ways to reassert the accusations and their effects. Each edition of the television news re ects a certain version of daily social reality. Assuming television news as a singular way of scattering information and presently the most shocking information product we propose an investigation on the hierarchy of values that is considered to be contained within the media speeches. Concepts and identities are constructed through an intentional use of the language and narrative techniques. This study also intends to point out the responsibility of journalists and researchers whose professional exercising functions work as opinion markers and/or articulators of speci c ways to understand the country and the world.

Revista Latinoamericana de Psicología , 2007,
Abstract: in spite the many observational and experimental studies on the relations between television and violence found in the literature, there is still no agreement about an eventual causal relationship. even if most authors have observed a positive correlation between both variables, these do not have to be necessarily causal; both might depend of a third factor. although most results show eventual short term causal effects of mass media on violent behavior, some ones suggest the opposite direction of the effect, a third group suggest rather bidirectional influences, and finally other authors talk about the cathartic effects of some violent programs. the final part of the article suggests some possible psychological models as explanation of the eventual relationship between both variables.

Low Noise Amplifier Design for Digital Television Applications  [PDF]
Anastasios Tsaraklimanis, Evangelia Karagianni
Journal of Electromagnetic Analysis and Applications (JEMAA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jemaa.2011.37047
Abstract: The DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting—Terrestrial) standard is being deployed in many parts of the world for digital broadcasting services, providing a variety of features extending the capabilities of the older analog ones. In this paper, a two-stage low noise amplifier (LNA) is designed for use with the DVB-T standard. The design is employed based on microstrip. The microwave design meets all the specifications required, achieving input and output return loss below ?10 dB, high gain of 35 dB and high linearity. Low noise figure of 1.3 dB is achieved with the use of pHEMT transistor technology.

Digital Television, Convergence, and the Public: Another Digital Divide?
Jason Smith
Sociation Today , 2009,
Abstract: While 85 percent of Americans pay to receive television signals through satellite or cable companies, 15 percent still receive their television using over-the-air signals. With the elminination of analog television signals, the 15 percent of households have had to make significant changes in their viewing technology. These households tend to be elderly, poor, minority and rural. Signal coverage areas will be cut back, since government assumed a viewer would have an antenna on a 30 foot pole. Few do, and governmental programs delibertely hid this engineering fact. It is argued that digitalism has neglected the public use of the airways and created yet one more digital divide.

The Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education , 2010,
Abstract: Among several uses, educational use of television is a prominent one. The public broadcasters of many countries routinely provide locally-relevant and useful educational television programs. In other side, there has been phenomenal growth in Internet use worldwide. The researchers are of the view that Internet has challenged the supremacy of television as an important medium to disseminate information to the learners. In this background, present paper attempts to answer the question, is Internet an opportunity or threat for educational television? To get the answer of this question, researcher presents an example of Germany where both television and Internet has been widely used for educational purposes. The outcome of this study depicts that instead of threats, Internet offers more opportunities for educational television. This analysis also leads the researcher to propose promotional strategies to use Internet for creating more opportunities for educational television in global perspectives.
