Don’t let them think that raising their voice makes them heard, give equal attention to both parties.
Despite how much you may dislike it or try to avoid it, arguing is a natural part of life. Most people would not think that arguing is a natural way of balancing things out, but it is. Although there isn’t necessarily a right way to argue, there are definitely wrong ways to argue, which will most likely lead to bigger problems than the original problem. Clearly, no one taught us how to argue, but just like we are influenced to do a lot of things in life, the way we disagree with one another and accept criticism is one. In today’s society, technology has played a major role in influencing the way we argue and disagree with one another. In “Fighting Words: Why Our Public Disclosure Must Change” essay by Kelby Carlson, the idea of the media and technology is ruining the way people interact with each other during arguments.

How does one deal with challenges thrown at them? By ignoring them and hope things will change for the better? In both stories Speak and Things Fall Apart, Anderson and Achebe have bothe of the main characters in their novels deal with challenges thrown at them. In Speak, Melinda deals with being an outcast in her social class and also deals with the fact that she’s been raped. This causes Melinda to feel depressed during her Freshman year. While in Things Fall Apart Okonkwo deals with being exiled from his clan and deals with his internal conflict about how the clan is becoming more women than men. Despite the fact that Okonkwo and Melinda undergo significant changes in the novels Things Fall Apart and Speak, it is clear that Melinda endures a more arduous journey of growth in regard to the lack of parental support, their social classes, and their internal conflict.

On August 28, 1963, thousands of people gathered near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to hear the leader of one of the greatest freedom protests in history. Martin Luther King Jr. was a pastor from the south, the elected leader of the bus boycotts. His speech that day in Washington is one of the most eminent pieces of oral literature. His dissent to the shameful conditions was painfully obvious. There was a reason his speech touched the hearts of so many and caused congress to take action. He used logos, the Greek word for logic. Dr. King used logos the most in his speech through mentioning Abraham Lincoln and the conditions of the South.
At the pub on St Martin's Lane, you guzzle Brooklyn Lager while Iggy uploads photos to the Internet. England Trip with Dad--Day One, she's called them, and she tags you in each: London Heathrow! Eating fish 'n' chips! Dad's neckbeard, lol! In one hand she cradles her cellphone and in the other a champagne flute that pulses with prosecco, which, you've learned, is European for sparkling wine. Iggy's got irises dark as ground coffee and skin the colour of cork. After each taste of bubbly her lips leave a forensic imprint on the glass. Eighteen, your daughter, not old enough to drink legally in British Columbia and too young to have voted--though she will, she reminds you, she'll vote for the goddamn Liberals. She's heading to university in Toronto,

I would describe “rhetoric” as the use of language in order to effectively express thought, and best convey a desired result to an audience given a specific context. I also agree with the idea that rhetoric attempts to “remedy misunderstanding” (I.A. Richards). The “rhetorical situation” is any situation where people are communicating, and is defined by a number of elements: rhetor, audience, purpose, context and strategies. The awareness of this concept definitely affects one’s writing and behaviors in that, it provides the best foundation to craft an engaging and effective piece of writing. If you have a keen awareness of who the audience of a text is, what the purpose of said text is, and have analyzed the best tool or mode to achieve that
Player drama - Is annoying for everyone, chat starts getting spammed, then it becomes a hassle for the staff, So what I would do to start of is tell the suspect to watch their actions while they on the server and to try and keep the arguments to a minimum and ask whats the issue if two,three people have just fell out, I could consider asking them to just /ignore the suspects who are starting on the victim, I could even try and get them all on team-speak and sort out their issue while their on the team-speak but I will keep considerate and tell them to consider their actions so no server actions such as a mute, is taken.
The novel, Mistakes were made (but not by me): Why we justify foolish beliefs, bad decisions, and hurtful acts, by Carol Tarvis and Elliot Aronson is about how humans naturally attempt to use cognitive dissonance to justify their acts and beliefs. I selected the book to review because the title interested me. I wondered how people could justify actions such as lying to the nation and even terrorism. I was also interested in learning about how criminals could do such horrible acts and still be able to sleep at night without having to worry or stress about what they had done. I have seen many instances when people argue and never make up. The reason behind that is that they’re both either afraid of what the other would say or they both think that themselves is correct. This mindset leads to a lack of communication and a
King during his speech. This speech has as many as eight anaphoras. The most famous of them is “I have a dream” this is repeated in the beginning of eight consecutive sentences. Anaphora’s used by Mr. King helped impact his audience more with each successive repetition of the theme words. Besides his usage of metaphors and anaphora’s, King makes good use of another figure of speech called allusion (an indirect or passing reference) in his speech. He speaks of numerous important cultural texts, which makes his speech even more persuasive. These are some of the allusion from his speech: “Five score years ago…” refers to the famous speech by Lincoln during the Gettysburg Address that started with “For score and seven years ago…” (Lincoln’s beginning in turn speaks of the Bible.) This was touching, as King gave his speech in front of the Lincoln
In a perfect world, there would be no fights, arguments or disagreements that result in destruction and pain. Unfortunately, the world is full of constant battles that cause many relationships to fail. Divorce rates have skyrocketed over the past years and young families are slowly falling apart. Although each relationship is different, one of the main reasons that arguments occur is because of a lack of proper communication or hidden secrets. Either of these things can create chaos. Similarly, in the short story “Popular Mechanics” written by Raymond Carver, two individuals are in an obvious argument where the dialogue revolves around which parent should receive the custody of the child. The major theme that stands out in this short story
Conflict is unpleasant, but inevitable throughout life. In any situation involving two or people, conflict may arise. Conflict can be defined as, “any situation in which incompatible goals, cognitions, or emotions within or between individuals or groups lead to opposition or antagonistic interaction” (Learning Team Toolkit, 2004, pp 242-243). People come from different backgrounds and live through different life experiences therefore, even when working towards a common goal, they will not always agree. Major conflict that is not dealt with can devastate a team or organization (Make Conflict Work, 2008). In some situations, conflict can be more constructive than destructive. In this paper we take a look at two technology giants,
