Catron succeeded in engaging a large audience since her article has been viewed over eight million times. Her experience with the study and the following love story is by that well-known. The inevitably question is therefore: are they still together? After the article’s success Catron has held a Ted Talk in which she discusses her changed view on love and whether or not she is still in love with her university acquaintance. Catron uses some of the same means from her article to engage her Ted Talk audience.
At first it was confusing because she talked a lot about Essentrics first and kept saying she would explain it later on in the book. She was hyping the Essentrics program a lot in the beginning saying how thirty minutes a day can help pain, slow aging, heal injuries and so on. After reading the first couple of pages, the book was getting repetitive and I wanted to know what the thirty minutes exercise were already. On the other hand the hype of Essentrics was actually worthy because that was her hook in the book. Reading the first couple of pages in the first chapter was interesting and deep explaining in a cellular level how our bodies work.
Jealousy leads to mayhem. In the crucible lot of the character get jealous of someone leading to total mayhem. The interaction between Mrs. Putman and Rebecca Nurse is a prime example of this jealousy. Mrs. Putnam had had eight children but she lost seven of them. When Rebecca Nurse tells her she is blessed with “eleven children” (page 27 in regular book) Mrs. Putman believes she is under the spell of witchcraft as she only has kept one and Rebecca has eleven.
What does resilience really mean to you? The literal definition to resilience is the ability to cope with problems and setbacks. In the story Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, she shows us all different kind of ways that the characters in her story used the skills that Kendra Cherry was talking about, to help them out of every situation. In this story it shows how certain situations affect people in different ways and how each person goes through seven skills. The characteristic that Louie undergoes is the skill of Strong Problem-Solving.
We got the approval of recording the interview from the interviewees, and started to interview three people who have touched the “Black Angel” before around us. We asked some basic questions, including the reason, time, feelings, consequences of touching the statue, and theirs attitudes about those murky myths. The records we used in the presentation were original that could show the most real attitudes and thoughts of those interviewees. We used the rhetorical method of pathos, which “is an appeal to emotion, and is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response (your dictionary).” to appeal our audience here: letting the audience listen to the interviewees’ own experience and feelings. The consequences are that those myths didn’t happen on the interviewees even if they touched “The Black Angel”, and they are still alive and being healthy.
The majority of your time in Firewatch will be spent engaging with the conversation system. Because as Henry explores the Shoshone he keeps a running dialogue with Delilah going via his walkie-talkie. Firewatch often tasks you with determining how Henry responds to Delilah 's queries or how he reacts to something she says or that is happening around him. And the conversation flows more or less effortlessly regardless of your input. As previously mentioned, the quality of the writing ensures the conversations are engaging throughout.
You learn life lessons almost everywhere you go and anything you see. In movies, from people, online and especially in books. For me, the book “Unspeakable” by Caroline Pignat is filled with different main ideas and life lessons everyone should know. But the one I think is the most important is that losing someone isn’t the end of your world. In the text Ellie had lost a lot of people.
Pamela Meyer I could not think of a speech off of the top of my head so I chose one of the presentations in this module. I chose to listen to Pamela Meyer speak on "How to spot a liar". Pamela Meyer is the CEO of the social networking company Simpatico Networks as well as Calibrate, a leading deception detection-training program. She worked with researchers and studied all of the published research that she could find on deception "from such fields as law-enforcement, military, psychology and espionage" (Meyer, 2011). She then became an expert herself on this subject and received advanced training in several areas such as interrogation, microexpression analysis and behavior and body language (Meyer, 2011).
In the last 6 weeks, I was playing a group leader role in the DTESB project and learned quite a lot from both the project process and the TOUR 7040 lectures. Currently, I would like to reflect the study of emotional intelligence (EQ). Using emotion to achieve goals is quite easy to be understand but not easy to be done during the cooperation. Personally, I am a straightforward girl with a short temper. And the perfect teamwork in my mind is that all team members could work together with a smooth communication and a high implementation.
In this paper, I will briefly cover on the interpersonal communication concepts. At the beginning of my relationship with Diana we typically discussed more factual information, such as the outside layer of an onion. Like the textbook states, it took time to get through the first two layers of the onion. Today, we are through all the layers, so our meetings had much more emotions and opinions stated than what would have been when we first started talking to each other years ago. Diana explained herself straight-forward on her opinions involving our new house.
Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing. Overall the story is very engaging to its readers, especially for those who don’t like long stories. Fresh Bait was one of the best stories that was read out of all of the Top Stories 2.
