Some days ago, Rep. Ro Khanna and Rep. Tim Ryan, two Democrats in the House of Representatives, proposed the emergency money for the people act that helps fix the problems that were present in the CARES act. The problem with the cares act is that it excluded a lot of people. It prohibited undocumented immigrants and excluded college students and a few other types of workers who desperately need money because they were unable to work due to the shutdown. To add on to that, are some people who can not get approval for unemployment in their state, like Undocumented or part-time workers. Some workers are only eligible for the $600 in the care act and not the additional state benefits. Such a bill like this would help patch specific flaws in the original proposal. It also has options for the un-banked with the opportunities to send money to Venmo accounts, Cash app accounts, and Paypal accounts for those who don’t have traditional or even more modern fintech bank accounts.

When I was growing up, productivity was never really an action that I could do well. Maybe it's due to the constant distractions of being Young, but ever since I started college productivity, (unless I was super into the topic) was just painful. The ability to focus on something that wasn't about my everyday life caused me a lot of frustration and it lost my interest in a matter second; it wasn't until I started to study at a university when my productivity increased. What changed? Nothing Really, except for the music I was listening to while studying. I didn't change the times I studied; I didn't change the length of studying I didn't even change the amount of caffeine or coffee I would drink. No, I traded the music. In my second semester at San Francisco State University, I took a class called the music of John Coltrane.
Its 9:00 AM, you wake up, and immediately reach for your phone, scrolling through your social media: your Facebook, your Snapchat or your Instagram, as you do. Scanning through your news feed, you’re reading posts from celebrities or models, pausing to peruse it, envying their extravagant lifestyle. You come across a picture of said celebrity: nicely dressed, well posed, and standing in the middle of a walkway, in Milan or Rome, or even Fashion Week in NYC. Or how about, when you see the same person next to their Maybach, and during that moment it’s as if someone took the perfect snap shot of that fleeting moment. While you’re sitting there on your bed and you think to yourself “Wow, why can’t that be me? Why can’t I have a picture perfect life where people will take random pictures of me in public?” Does this story sound familiar to you?
One of the greatest aspects of democracy is the freedom of diverse thought and speech (intellectual Property). The Media is the best way of ensuring that and these aspects of democracy survive. The media is everywhere nowadays, on our phones, our TVs and every-time we go out of the house we are confronted by the message of media. It's no wonder then that media is the largest industry in the world, and only growing bigger.
