News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper November 28, 2013 - 7 By Kymberlee Mar- low OK, so I write this ar- ticle just after MTV'S Music Awards. And there hasn't been much talk of anything besides Miley Cyrus's controver- sial performance. People couldn't believe that former Disney darling Hannah Montana got up there and got as raunchy as she did. The backlash hit this country like a tsunami. Lots of people have threatened to protest MTV. Lots of people say she's a performer that's trying to prove a point and trying to shed her good girl image. Well congrats Miley, you sure showed them. Listen, my twenties was such a confusing and carefree point in my life. It was chalked full of mistakes, fun, lots of questionable outfits, and behavior. So I personally cannot judge. I wouldn't let any child of mine watch it, though, I'll tell you that. I saw a mother on CNN the other nightwho was outraged. She said she was a bad example for tweens and teens. She said the only reason her kids wanted to watch it was for one of the boy bands that was supposed to be on it. The guy doing the interview posed a great question. He asked, Why would your kids be watching an awards show that is notorious for outrageous behavior? And besides didn't that show air at 10 p.m? What was your kids doing up watching t.v on a school night? I thought, touch6. He told her. Because isn't this how the game of fame works. Somebody has to go for shock val- ue to get noticed. The exposure then equals ticket sales and album or movie sales. The more outrageous you are, the more people talk about you. So Miley scored in that sense. It's a shrewd world where people are re- warded for bad behavior. However, we have the choice of watching or listening or tuning them Madonna was my fa- vorite singer when I was nine. I sang her songs word for word. Songs like Material Girl and Like a Virgin. And now that I know what the words mean, I can't believe I got away with that. We all know Madonna was a pretty sorry role model for young girls. She was a pretty power- ful woman in the indus- try. But wow, she was very racy. But for her it worked. But for some reason people should just ac- cept that little Hannah Montana has grown up. I think when you have all the pressure of be- ing perfect and clean- cut, you eventually rebel against it. And we all know how that works. I out. People act like they say just, let it be what it are shocked. I'm not. I is. It's entertainment for know there is one per- a mature audience, not a former every year on national crisis. I swear, the show that goes be- with the shape this yond everyone else.

'1 A Meeting in Salt Lake City and Why You Should Care This week, a meeting of The US position in the It is estimated that if the representatives of Pacific TPP negotiations is that fairy tale Snow White had Rim nations is set to occur copyrights should last the been copyrighted under at the Grand America Ho- author's life p!us 95 years! these proposed regula- tel in Salt Lake, Utah from November 19th through the 24th. The meeting is to hammer out the se- cret trade agreement be- tween the US and other Pacific nations called the TransPacific Partnership (http://upr.org/post/ trans-pacific-par tnership- draws-criticism-secrecy- prior-meeting-salt-lake). I have written about my concerns over the TPP in an earlier article to this pa- per. Briefly, my concerns are: the lack of transparen- cy in the negotiations, the i push for a fast track approv- al through Congress, and the all but certain possibil- ity that this treaty would be an end run around legisla- tion that would not pass a vote by our elected repre- sentatives-let alone, the will of the people. Nothing of what I wrote earlier do I now wish to retract. If anything, my concern has grown larger. On Wednesday of last week, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange obtained and released a secret draft copy of a single chap- ter of the proposed TPP (https://wikileaks.org/ tpp/pressrelease.html). The chapter is about intel- lectual property rights. In this chapter alone, there is enough information to raise the hackles of any red-blooded American. According to the leaked document, our patent and intellectual property laws are to be rewritten (extra- legislatively). The revi- sions to our existing law would extend monopoly- protecting patents to surgi- cal procedures, life forms Wouldi:le en the term of patents and copyrights. In the case of patented tions, Walt Disney would pharmaceuticals, generics not have been able to would take much longer make his animated version to enter the market place of Snow White, until 1956. because of redefinition Thus, under the TPP, not of what is patentable.
