American historian, Russell Kirk once said, “True education is meant to develop the individual human being, the person, rather than to serve the state.” A liberal arts education focuses on developing students into productive citizens by preparing them for future careers, while building their character. Seen as a new approach for further insight and critical thinking, a liberal arts education provides students with a broader worldview for general understanding and problem solving. In his article, “The New Liberal Arts,” Sanford J. Ungar combats common liberal arts misperceptions that prevent future students from attaining a liberal arts degree. Many students believe a liberal arts education is irrelevant; thus, leaving students to futilely

Therefore, it is important for readers to understand the effect and consequences that censorship will bring and reading a novel like Fahrenheit 451 will give them a good idea of what government censorship really is. In the 21st century, new knowledges, ideas, and imagination will prevail and emerge, but a government censorship will only prevent them from doing so. Therefore, the importance of understanding the cruel dystopian reality of government censorship can bring awareness to this issue and prevent such government control from
Is cultural competence more important than counseling competence (Sue text and lecture notes)? I believe that cultural competence and counseling competence go hand in hand. You can not experience counseling competence without being culturally competent. I do not believe that we can be unbiased as counselors but being aware of our bias is important in regards to cultural competence. According to Sue & Sue in order to help and serve our clients we need to openly experience and discuss our emotions regarding race, culture, and gender (p. 12).
Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt have successfully entertained me with their novel, Freakonomics, which talks about economics in an in-depth and analytical level. The authors attempt to challenge subjective truths at face values, show how data can be rearranged, and how there is always a hidden side to everything. They attack every day aspects of life to shine humanity on figures we regard as untouchable and they are challenging the normal, hackneyed rhetoric about the way the world works. Ultimately, the authors make the world more inquisitive by offering statistics on subjects in order to look at an issue from a different perspective, they use economic approaches to analyze the connection between disciplines, and they offer insight to the deeper causes to major influences in history by appealing to authorities. In the chapter titled “How is the Ku Klux Klan like a group of Real-Estate Agents?”, the
Myth of a Culture War A culture war is defined as a conflict between groups with different ideals, beliefs, and philosophies. At the 1992 Republican National Convention, Pat Buchanan said “There is a religious war going on in this country, a cultural war as critical to the kind of nation we shall be as the Cold War itself, for this waris for the soul of America.” Buchanan suggests there is a divide between groups of people. However, Morris P. Fiorina, PhD, a political scientist from Stanford University is in disagreement. He believes that the media outlets are magnifying the existence of a culture war. Fiorina has even wrote a book called Culture War?
To briefly summarize, in portraying these insecurities, the author wants to highlight the need to identify one's faults, so then they can work on rectifying them to become a better person, just as we see Holden do at the end of the novel. He wants to emphasize that becoming familiar with the struggles of the adult world isn't all bad, as we can prepare ourselves and adjust to the situation, before it becomes too much to handle. Lastly, he wants to pin point that we should not label the whole world based on a couple of people, but instead we have to broaden our horizons. To begin, the protagonist Holden Caulfield has an immensely difficult time getting over his brother's death and thus it is portrayed that he doesn’t possess the ability of letting go of the past and concentrating on the future. He instead harbors the anger, sadness and guilt of his brother's death inside him for so many years, causing him to battle with himself and blame himself for what happened.
First, to decrease the impact of implicit bias Kang suggests that his readers expose themselves to counter association in order to counter the stenotype with vicarious exposure. He suggests that in order to break the link we should alter the decision-making of judges and jurors. Judges should doubt their objectivity and begin learning more about unconscious thought processes; this would lead judges to be more skeptical about their own objectivity. We should scientifically educate judges with knowledge about implicit social cognition and judges should undergo early training and take IAT or other measures of implicit bias. Furthermore, jury selection and composition should be improved significantly according to Kang.
My interest in intercultural communication and determination of pursuing a career in international education motivated me to apply for the MA ICBP at Warwick University. The decision has been carefully made based on my bachelor degree in International Communications Studies with Spanish, voluntary teaching in primary schools in China and Cameroon. After graduation, I wish to work for as an administrative coordinator in an international education institution or as a program manager of NGO, promoting quality education. With 3-5 year working experience, I will head for a PhD degree to prepare myself for a research-oriented position. Undertaking my bachelor degree in the first Sino foreign university, the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), is the first step for me to engage in cross-cultural communication as a learner.

Next, I framed and presented my argument by explaining the controversy on core, clarifying the purpose of core, presenting objections to the core, and explaining possible frustration from being opposed. Through the development of my argument, I attempted to persuade the reader that the requirements exhibit a beneficial purpose, and a liberal arts education is an advantage in post-college life. To evoke credibility in the presentation of my argument, I effectively established ethos by sharing how my perspective has changed, and by using Calvin 's resources to support my position. Likewise, I acknowledged counter arguments to verify my consideration of both sides of the controversy with my audience. Overall, my persuasive essay is effective in recognizing different positions on the situation, and by using an article from Calvin 's website to educate my audience on the benefits.
