Well, Well, Well, the time has come where the joy of sharing all kinds of emerging issues of BCM 310 has ended officially. To begin with it all started with the word of “blogging” by Miss Rohayu and I went OMG again?… oh well, time flies where now I am typing the final blogspot and to begin with what I had learned for the entire time of this great subject is mainly about the issues that are emerging in today’s world and people tend to ignore or not aware of. I enjoy understanding the concept of Pink Washing, E-waste , white bread media and moderating conversation. At first I would think that the concept of company doing pink washing is to help those whom are needy ones but right after the chapter of Pink washing, it changes my view completely different where most of the companies are just tapping into the bandwagon and promote their products at the same time gaining profit rather than benefiting the whole event course which is to help the people whom are suffering breast cancer. Now I would even thinking twice when companies promote their products especially we can see nowadays “buy a product and then your help the poor or charity” so on. I will think that is rather more of profit earning than doing the right thing. Then , here comes the e-waste where I’ve learned about the hidden cost of creating an I-phone where they uses tons of different materials and they abuse on the labor force in China by paying them $1dollar for intensive working hours. At the same time, I never knew that the e-waste/ or commonly e-recycling done by major companies are not aware of where their electronics being shipped to would ended be. This is where something that the authorities should foresee as most of the electronics would be burn in an open area without the consideration of people around there that would risking their health. How immoral can human being be for the sake of money and self satisfaction.
Additionally this topic is also brings an eye opener for me especially I’ve learn a lot things at the same time the laws and enforcement of Malaysia in multimedia and IT world like Security Act, firms like MCMC to control the content and so on. Not forgetting this subject has also encourage students to think critically and make more research on how this emerging issues can affect todays world even some issues like stereotyping (white bread media) has been for years but nobody is taking consideration about it. This has change my way of viewing issues especially when comes to discrimination or even racism where we are born equally and nobody is right or wrong so let not be racist or discriminating people because everybody has their strength and weaknesses.
Till then, I would like to thank Miss Rohayu for once again for the courage of teaching us and patient when comes to explaining some complicated terms. I am proud and happy to have Miss Rohayu as a lecturer due to her professionalism when comes to lecturing.
