Paparazzi are photographers who take pictures of athletes, entertainers, politicians, and other celebrities, usually while they are going about normal life routines.
Description Paparazzi tend to be independent contractors, unaffiliated with mainstream media organizations, and photos taken are usually done so by taking advantage of opportunities when they have sightings of the high-profile people they're tracking. Some experts have expressed opinions that the behavior of paparazzi to be synonymous with stalking, and anti-stalking bills in many countries address the issue by reducing harassment of public figures and celebrities, especially with their minor children. Some public figures and celebrities have expressed concern at the extent to which paparazzi invade their personal space, and the filing and receiving of judicial support for restraining orders against paparazzi has increased, as have lawsuits with judgments against them.
Etymology The word "paparazzi" is an eponym originating in the 1960 film La Dolce Vita directed by Federico Fellini. One of the characters in the film is a news photographer named Paparazzo(played by Walter Santesso). In his book Word and Phrase, Robert Hendrickson writes that Fellini took the name from an Italian dialect word that describes a particularly annoying noise, that of a buzzing mosquito. As Fellini said in his interview to Time magazine, "Paparazzo ... suggests to me a buzzing insect, hovering, darting, stinging." Those versions of the word's origin are confirmed by Treccani, the most authoritative Italian encyclopaedia, but sometimes contested. For instance, in the Abruzzi dialect spoken by Ennio Flaiano, co-writer of La Dolce Vita, the term "paparazzo" refers to the local clam (Venerupis decussata), and is also used as a metaphor for the shutter of a camera lens.
The English usage of the word paparazzo is traced to Italian poet Margherita Guidacci, in her translation of George Gissing’s travel book By the Ionian Sea (1901), in which a restaurant owner is called Coriolano Paparazzo. The name was supplied by the screenwriter of Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita, Ennio Flaiano, who in turn got it from Margherita Guidacci's Sulla riva dello Jonio (1957). By the late 1960s the word, usually in the Italian plural form paparazzi, had entered English as a generic term for intrusive photographers. A person who has been photographed by the paparazzi is said to have been "papped".
In an interview with Fellini's screenwriter Ennio Flaiano, he said the name came from the Italian translation based on a 1901 southern Italy travel narrative by Victorian writer George Gissing, By the Ionian Sea. He further states that either Fellini or Flaiano opened the book at random, saw the name, and decided to use it for the photographer. This story is further documented by a variety of Gissing scholars and in the book A Sweet and Glorious Land: Revisiting the Ionian Sea (St. Martin's Press, 2000) by John Keahey, and Pierre Coustillas.
Looking here Baby or talking on the phone Ring Ring
Pretending to be
natural in an awkward manner
I already know you
With a smiling face
that you wish to see Aha ha ha ha
Every night’s hide and seek
Now there’re still
Don’t you want more
Let’s be nice to each
other, aren’t we of the same party
Life is a party from garage to suite room
Any time you go boom
gorgeous car chase,
flowers all round
Leading you to the
Boom boom boom
The love that grown up with a price tag
Shooting the darkness
while flash is the sight of money
Life is a party from
garage to suite room
No matter I’m
sleeping or awake, boom boom boom
Oh La La La
La La La La
Oh La La La
When I hide you wish to see the back of the screen
The person who
pretends to be honest also goes La cha cha la
That dandy person
also goes Mama mama at home
Feeling anxious at
the thrill of the secret kiss
Punkadelic crazy night
Searchlight for the
Bad boy bad girl I’m
Compared to being
controlled, dancing is the style
Life is a Party, the more damage it causes the more it sells
Once discovered, the
last Boom boom boom
The shadow hiding at
the end of the night
Take a shortcut to
the front and Boom boom boom
After the rumours sparkle as rumours
Burning and before
I’m just loving and
Now that even this
love becomes dirty
I can’t bear with it,
I can’t bear with it
But there’s no reason for me to complain
Here and there Boom
Saying that the more
you show the brighter you shine
Come On Friends,
that’s right this way, Oh la ta ta
A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or
distributes news or other current information. A journalist's work is referred
to as journalism. A journalist can work with general issues or specialize in
certain issues, however, most journalists tend to specialize, and by
cooperating with other journalists produce journals that span many topics. For
example, a sports journalist covers news within the world of sports, but this
journalist may be a part of a newspaper that covers many different topics.
A reporter is a
type of journalist who researches, writes, and reports on information to
present in sources, conduct interviews, engage in research, and make reports.
The information-gathering part of a journalist's job is sometimes called
reporting, in contrast to the production part of the job such as writing
articles. Reporters may split their time between working in a newsroom and
going out to witness events or interview people. Reporters may be assigned a
specific beat or area of coverage.
Depending on the
context, the term journalist may include various types of editors, editorial
writers, columnists, and visual journalists, such as photojournalists
(journalists who use the medium of photography).
A newspaper is a periodical publication containing news,
other informative articles and usually advertising. A newspaper is usually
printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint. The news
organizations that publish newspapers are themselves often metonymically called
newspapers. Most newspapers now publish online as well as in print. The online
versions are called online newspapers or news sites.
Johann Carolus (1575−1634) was a German publisher of the
first newspaper, called Relation aller Fürnemmen und gedenckwürdigen Historien
(Account of all distinguished and com-memorable news). The Relation is
recognized by the World Association of Newspapers, as well as many authors as
the world's first newspaper. The German-language newspaper was published in
Strasbourg, which had the status of an free imperial city in the Holy Roman
Empire of the German Nation.
Italien, Duytslandt, &c. was the first Dutch newspaper. It was published in
June 1618 in Amsterdam. It was a regular weekly publication. It can be called
the first broadsheet paper, because it was issued in folio-size. Before this,
news periodicals had been pamphlets in quarto-size. The paper carries
no imprint of the printer or the publisher. Similar papers published later
suggest that it may have been printed by Joris Veseler and published and edited
by Caspar van Hilten. The exact date of the publication is not known, but the
dates of the news items suggest that it was probably printed between 14 and 18
La Gazette, originally Gazette de France, was the first
weekly magazine published in France. It was founded by Théophraste Renaudot and
issued its first number on May 30, 1631. It progressively became the mouthpiece
of one royalist faction, the Legitimists. La Gazette disappeared in 1915.
A mobile phone(also known as a cellular phone, cell phone, hand phone, or simply a phone) is a phone that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area. It does so by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network. By contrast, a cordless telephone is used only within the short range of a single, private base station.
In addition to telephony, modern mobile phones also support a wide variety of other services such as text messaging, MMS, email, Internet access, short-range wireless communications(infrared, Bluetooth), business applications, gaming, and photography. Mobile phones that offer these and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.
