MEDIATION:

 1- Topic: Health - Junk food

You read the following text in a news editorial:

In the continuing effort to fight obesity in the US, the Food and Drug Administration is reviewing its nutrition labeling guidelines. However, what motivates people to buy junk food varies so much based on context - the purchasing environment, their socio-economic status, their emotional state, their hunger - so a label is unlikely to “interrupt” the purchasing decision except in a small number of cases.

2- Topic: Health - Cosmetic surgery

You read the following text in a news editorial:

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), almost 18 million people underwent surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States in 2018.This total means that there were almost a quarter of a million more procedures in 2018 than in 2017. The authors of an earlier study in the United Kingdom analysed 204 questionnaires to identify the factors that make people go through cosmetic surgery. The findings showed that women who rated their self-esteem, life satisfaction, and attractiveness as low, had few religious beliefs, and had high media exposure were more likely to undergo cosmetic surgery.

Automation (Click HERE):

Robots have been doing the repetitive drudge work in our factories fordecades. But now they can flip burgers, lay bricks, even co-operate to open doors and escape. Giant 3D printers can make houses out ofconcrete in a fraction of the time humans can. "Artificial Intelligence is a big threat to low-skilled jobs, no question," says Bernard Louvat, general manager of digital customer engagement solutions at tech firm Nuance."Chatbots are certainly eliminating jobs - we need fewer and fewer human agents each year. The ones that are left will be highly skilled super-agents looking after the most complicated cases."

And Selfie-Tourism (Click HERE - Key):

You read the following text in a news article:

Technology has changed the way we travel. Smartphones, travellers’ comments and photos,search engines and algorithms can all inspire and empower us to plan complex journeys all overthe globe within minutes.
For many people, mobile phones have become their external brain when on the road. These so-called “selfie-gaze” tourists see and experience the destination largely through their cameras
and the comments and feedback they receive on their posts. In this sense, their satisfaction does not depend on the quality of the destination and experience, but on how well they manage impressions and attract “likes” and positive comments.

Written mediation

As eco as they can be, electric scooters turn out to be more of a problem than convenience on the streets of Madrid and other major Spanish cities. The scheme is the same as with the rentable electric cars or bicycles - you find it using an app, pay a fee, ride, and then park it at any location. That last part turns out to be causing troubles for pedestrians as scooters are being left on sidewalks or used without taking into consideration traffic rules.Some viral videos show people racing with the vehicles causing problems for pedestrians.
