    It is important for me to talk about the news because 1- When I know the news, I know what is happening around me in terms of sayings and events. From here, it becomes clear to me what the importance of the news is. The person is always interested in what is going on around him, as he is in constant need to learn about many things, including the weather or news. Important issues are like accidents, which at least helps me feel safe.

    2- The news has a great impact on me. When I know the news, I feel that I am in my country. When I see people telling what happened in the country, I say why, why I don’t know, because here the news affects my life, my psyche and in all areas of life.

Every day I browse the news because I feel that news has become among the necessities of life for me because of its great importance of knowledge, awareness, entertainment and education. Despite that, the news has many negatives that It affects the regularity of society, such as forgery, rumors, false news, and spreading concepts contrary to morals. We must also make use of the media to transmit news. I tell you, give a world without news, I will give you a people without awareness.

      I agree with this because if you didn't know the news you couldn't help at all. Another thing is that if you didn't know or catch up with the news you wouldn't be able help i any way at all. Other things is if you didn't talk about the news, people might not know about current events. these events effect us all, even if you don't know about. Such as the new Covid-19 rules if they were not talked about, people might not know about them. Also if they are talked about people will be interested and want to learn more. If they are talked about you might get protesters that will spread it to make changes. Also if you talk about it, it will help you notice what is going on and you an make positive changes. It will also help everyone try make a positive change which will help the world and make things a happier place to be.

      There is no doubt that there are many ways, including:
      For example, we can publish everywhere about things that can harm people.
      To publish (awareness) methods that contribute to the prevention of common diseases that we do not know about.
      Or we create an ad hoc committee that sends notifications to mobile phones of things to be avoided.
