Eunice, Beverly, KimberlyThere are many reasons as to why we have fears, as listed below: Trust, impostion, the origin of it, how many are killed by it at once, the dread factor, stuff we know nothing about or do not know enough of, the familarity of the situation, or awareness, knowing who would be affected, if kids are affected or ourselves, as well as the control we have over the stiuationWe do not fear enough of our environment, many believe that inventions would be able to save our world in the future and are not taking any actions now. We also do not fear enough for our health, and do not take measures to ensure we are healthy at all times, again believing that medicine can help us in every way. We also do not fear time, as we have the mindset that there'll always be a "tomorrow" and do not finish our tasks immediately or properlyWe fear cancer, child abductions, plane crashes

Nehal,Luke,Chelsea Main points: Reporters feel the need to experience the risk themselves so that they can provide the core questions of 5Ws1H of risk-related stories (Interviewing people who are frightened insightfully and gathering facts in a larger perspective). The danger is that journalists can be so seduced by these subconscious risk perception fear factors that they play them up while failing to quaìify how big or small, certain or not, the actual risk is.People’s emotions and feelings affect their perception of whether the issue is dangerous or not, if we trust the process used in deciding if we will be exposed to danger, we are less afraid. We are much more afraid of a risk that is imposed on us, if we think the risk is natural, we are less afraid. We are more afraid if something is catastrophic compared to chronic. We are more afraid of a risk that is imposed on us compared to the same risk that we voluntarily expose ourselves to. The worse the outcome from a risk the more afraid we are. The harder it is to understand, the more we are afraid.
We do not fear terrorism, lack of resources, and smoking enough
We fear car crahes , killers, harmful gases emitted by vehicles enough

Taufiq, Khairul & DarrylPeople tend to mispercieve risks and threats shown on the noose. Risk perception is the study of how people percieve and fear risks allowing reporters to avoid needlessly scring people or not warning them enough.laws impose the risk on parents and kids, all of which raise fear.
Things we do not fear enough: global warming, pregnancy, World War.
Death, the future, Self Image

@xXSeanXx@ |V|LG FaZeMain points:
Stories that reporters report are often less dangerous than the media makes them seem.
Risk Perception varies from person to person and while some play up fears of stories that are not that scary, others ignore stories that should be evoking a lot more fear than it is actually doing.

However, reporters are extremely good at their jobs because they are able to strike a good balance to cover a story comprehensively and unbiasedly.

Various risk perception factors that come from the story are the things that make people more fearful.
Fear too much:
Viruses
Health Issues like high cholesterol
Fear of not having a stable job and earning $$$
Getting no-scoped
Small extremely rare accidents that are played up

Fear too little
Our environment and the world around us
Terrorists and war
The lost of culture

Yu Hin, Bryan Goh, Ryan, Wynn, Kai ChengPeople tend to mispercieve risks and threats shown on the news.Main Points:
- The way different people view different risk
- When someone we trust tells us that there is a risk, we are less afraid compared to when someone we do not trust tells us
Fear too little:
Global Warming
Natural Disaster
Apocalypse
Judgement Day
Car Accidents
Fear too much:
Heights that are not very high
Death, the afterlife, as well as the point of all existence in the universe.
Clowns
That monster in your closet and under your bed.

Kenric, Chester, Hong YiWith different perceptions, different people have different views on the same issue, perceiving the same risk differently. Reporters sees risks as an opportunity while others may see them as a danger. "Fear factors" are characteristics of a story that has a better chance making a headline.Enviromental issues
Traffic accidents
Smoking
Viruses
Sharks
