- Explore how the growth of Canadian media and broadcasting can utilize labels of ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘diversity’ that it is already associated with to create a Canadian content as distinct as that of its American counterpart by heavily capitalizing on content that it is entitled to, such as hockey, Canadian artists, and domestically produced shows.
- consider the current Canadian broadcasting ecosystem in relation to that of the United States by taking an in-depth look at the American Federal Communications Commission (FCC) along with roles of the CRTC, foreign content quotas specified in the Broadcasting Act and regulations regarding public/private funding.
- Understanding how each of these regulations affect the freedom and ease of production for both small-scale independent and corporately supported projects
- Assess why Canadian Media’s current regulatory structures upon which the broadcasting ecosystem is built upon are growing at a slower rate than would be ideal (assess against American/Hollywood media successes)
leep paralysis appears to be a sleep disorder that has existed for hundreds of years and in multiple cultures. The first presumed recorded instance of sleep paralysis dates to ancient Samira (Jalal & Hinton, 2015). Recordings of sleep paralysis have been found in many distinct cultures since then, appearing in stories from Ancient Egypt to a Dutch captain’s log in 1664 (Cox, 2015) This gives sleep paralysis the general appearance of being a universal mental disorder. However, because researchers focus primarily on examining sleep paralysis as a modern-day affliction, little research has been conducted on sleep paralysis in non-western cultures. Even fewer studies compare the symptoms of sleep paralysis in different populations to find any variance or similarities. With other mental disorders manifesting themselves in separate ways across cultures, it may not be correct to assume that sleep paralysis is experienced in a universal manner. It is possible that what a culture believes about mental disorders has the possibility to change how the mental disorder manifests itself. Methods Several studies conducted separately are reviewed and compared to each other. The studies were chosen as representative samples of distinct cultures within different countries. All but two studies were conducted upon university-aged students. The studies were read in depth, annotated, and analyzed. A list of repeating symptoms of sleep paralysis was created and used to critically evaluate the sources as a reliable way to contrast and compare the instances of the sleep disorder. Results Overall, it was found that sleep paralysis occurs consistently across cultures despite wildly varying belief systems. Common systems include pressure upon the chest, inability to move, inability to speak, hallucinations, and the impression of an intruder within the room. However, rates of hallucinations, trouble breathing, and fatalities were linked to cultures that had been taught to fear incidents of sleep paralysis as a spiritual attack.>GET ANSWER
