In brief, both texts elaborate to some extent, the topic of cultural identity, although, in very distinct ways. "What is Cultural Identity" is an informative text, with factual evidence and strongly supported arguments. While on the other hand, "Ethnic Hash" is more of a personal essay, for the reason that there is hardly any supported evidence, or in the least, an actual existent argument. This is just a personal narrative, which dabbles the very peak of the iceberg in the topic of cultural identity.
The MIT Academic Integrity page suggests using synonyms for non-generic words and using a different sentence structure and voice than that of the original.[v] It is also important to cite all paraphrased material, even if the text no longer resembles the original, as the ideas are still borrowed. 3. Unintentional Plagiarism Unintentional plagiarism happens, well, unintentionally. It can be the result of incorrect or incomplete citation or a heavy reliance on outside material, even if it is properly credited.
First of all, I need to clarify that there is no dominant method of comparison between countries. Every method has its own advantages and disadvantages involving the level of abstraction, the scope of covering, etc. (Landman & Carvalho, 2016).In the early days, Lijphart (1971) called comparing many countries when using quantitative analysis, the ‘statistical’ method and on the other hand, when comparing few countries with the use of qualitative analysis the ‘comparative’ method. But nowadays, comparative studies are conducted to compare similarities and differences across countries and within countries.
understand the 'hidden face' of power as in Steven Lukes' (1974) “three faces of power” it is necessary to explore beyond what initially appears from a policy decision or political standpoint. The realms in which the media operate can be quite complex, gauging an understanding to these is essential when trying to understand the various sources of power that the media controls and hence can manipulate. There have been numerous theories and theorists which have been introduced throughout this course regarding various conceptions of power, the 'two faces' view of Bachrach and Baratz (1970) provided the framework for the view on power. However, it was not until Lukes (1974) “three faces of power” theory which expanded on the work of Bachrach and
There is such a variety of definitions regarding discourse that make it difficult to stick to one definition, therefore the context to which discourse is used is helpful to narrowing down a less diverse definition. Michel Foucault (philosopher, social theorist and literary critic) used various definitions of discourse at separate instances. The rough definition that Foucault suggests for Discourse is ‘the general domain of all statements’. He also defines discourse as an adapted cluster of statements, which could relate to the distinct structures in discourse. Discourse has to do with distinguishing groups of statements which are controlled in a way that they match and reach a mutual effect.
And finally, the bunch of queries should be motivated to trigger responses feeding the factor dig rather than creating a big, and irrelevant, picture of the individual with no convincing trait. Studies, published in Educational and Psychological Measurement (Sipps, Freidt) and Journal of Personality (McCrae, Costa), have shown that factor analysis of the MBTI questions leave a large room for error. And for us mere mortals, it probably means that the error is big enough to fit a second individual, a camel, and a
Ethnographic and cross-cultural studies of emotions have demonstrated the diversity in which emotions differ with cultures. The biggest evidence that conflicts with the universality of emotions is language. Variety within language precisely correlates to the differences in emotion presentation. Hence, in this case, I would like to propose to research on emotion as well as text to maximize the accuracy and contribution towards social media
For example, Atkinson (1997) points out there are variety of definitions of critical thinking that differ to some degree. In like manner, Davidson (1998) argues that it is easy to notice large areas of overlap in these definitions. They are just paraphrases of the same idea. They simply link critical thinking to rational judgment.
In many cases you find that many Americans rely on media as their source of information and this have changed their culture of maybe doing research on something they want to get more information about, relying mainly on secondary data will not make them get the required information they need. In the other hand whenever they obtain the information from the media they usually do not address where that data originated from and they are not sure if that information is reliable. This new source of data is a massive impact on American culture, as well as the whole world. Media can impact the emotions of people in various ways, both good and bad, for instance government effect on media can influence the assessments of the general population presented to that particular media.
When thinking about the communication process, we usually tend to think about a simple process in which one person speaks and another listens. However, literature on the issue has shown that this sort of thought is completely wrong and that human communication processes are in fact quite complex and ever-changing phenomena. But, why are these processes as complex? How does communication really work? Answering to these questions is the main aim of this topic.
In our society, pubic administrators are sometimes given vague policy mandates from legislators for a variety of reasons. One reason why public administrators are given vague policy mandates is because of their wealth of knowledge and advanced sophistication in specific specialized skills such as “recording keeping and information gathering to allow them to develop expertise on some matters that cannot be matched elsewhere in society” (Rosenbloom, 2015, p. 59). In other words, public administers used their expertise and political and personal experiences to assist them in making a good decisions when facing difficult and complex issues. According to Rosenbloom, “ Not only do public administrators often know more about many aspects of the
In this section, discuss the research question(s) or hypotheses presented in the article. • There were two research questions presented in the article. The first question was how much variation in counselors’ self-reported multicultural counseling competencies is accounted for by a set of demographic, experiential, and training variables. The second question was how multicultural training explains additional variations in multicultural counseling competencies after accounting for the variation in competencies due to demographic and experiential variables. The purpose of the study/research problem was clearly identified within these two questions.
We communicate in many ways, either by email, telephone, text, face to face, social media or letters and the language we use allows us to get things done, nonetheless the language and communication method in which we chose to use can vary depending on the discourse community. Much like John Swales suggests a discourse community involves a group of people who share the same common public goals, such as shared interests, rules, structure, and vocabulary. When thinking about the several discourse communities I am evolved in, which include family, coaching football, college student, and a few friends. These discourse communities have influenced me, given me insight of where I come from and tell who I am as a person. I also believe much like Swales,
Reader Response #1 James E.Porter / Carl Rogers In the article of James Porter’s “Intertextuality and the Discourse Community,” the author states that in order for one to understand the other, they first understand it by another. What that means to me is that we learn through means of other text or others and not truly by ourselves, because we gather information from around us and then proceed to generate our own opinions or ideas/ideals by our own surroundings. Porter also mentions and talks about how if you nitpick and view text in a way of plagiarism in some way or another it technically would fall under that category. He goes off to mention that Thomas Jefferson is loosely the author of the Declaration of Independence.
