Briefcases: Steps toward Rhetorical Analysis”, Carroll describes the need for rhetorical analysis to assist in decoding the purpose and intent behind a cornucopia of the situation we faced daily. She elucidates the subject by describing the steps that we need to effectively to do it. She points out how we analyze people around us by making quickly a conclusion to the person that we are analyzing. As a student, it is important that we use Rhetorical Analysis as a strategy to communicate effectively. For example, when we write an essay, we need to show how the text convinces us of its position.
The second effect is agenda setting. This is another reason why we might call dependency a "comprehensive" theory of media effects because it includes the theory of agenda-setting within its theoretical framework. Just like other effects, the effects of media agenda-setting should be intensified in times when the audience’s needs and dependency on media are high. Third is attitude-formation. Media shows us new people such as celebrities and political figures.
1. Improved K-pop Show Contents Since the globalization of K-pop, the demand for Korean popular music contents has been diversified throughout Asia. To meet the needs of fans wanting to see K-pop stars directly before them, Korean production companies, broadcasting companies and non-profit foundations increased overseas performances and prepared for alternative channels such as internet live-streams. But they could neither satisfy fans in quantity nor in quality. K-pop fans in Asia did not enjoy the luxury of experiencing K-pop contents as a whole since most of the concerts were one-off events, concentrated on a few artists.
He further elaborates that the increasing interaction between seven or eight civilizations and their basic differences will be the reasons of clash. The increasing interaction intensifies civilization consciousness and awareness of differences between civilizations and commonalities within civilizations resulting the widening differences between civilizations and alliance within civilization (Huntington 23). He also adds, the revival of religion for fulfilling the gap of weakened nation state identity by the process of economic modernization and social change will also play the role. Furthermore, a west in the peak of its power confronts non-west that increasingly have the desire, the will and the resources to shape the world in non-western ways through Asianization, Hinduization and re-Islamization (Huntington 26). Huntington further explains, cultural characterises and differences are less mutable and hence less easily compromised and resolved than political and economic ones.

It could be reasonably argued that the first step toward an understanding of this theory is exchanging views on culture, power relations, and history in a particular society. Tom Fish and Meredith Anne Skura affirm that New Historicism deals more specifically with the issues of power (the ways in which dominant group exerts its influence over others) and culture (social forces of constraint and mobility), and to the plays’ effect on power relations in the new world. (qtd. in N-avarro 14) The most obvious way of illustrating the culture over the past centuries is considering the various discourses in literary texts. New Historicism has changed the way in which we are obliged to think about the culture over the past centuries through literary
Chapter 1 works as the introduction, explaining the subject matter and methodological issues from the research approach to how to deal with the interpretations. The details of all these are mentioned above. The author also, in a few sentences, shows a brief summary about the remaining chapters of the book for readers to gain a better understanding about the flow of the research. Chapter 2 covers a discussion of the subsequent aspects of the teachings of Confucius, Mo Tsu, the Yangists as the background of the main discussion of Mencius. In chapter 3, Mencius’s conception of the ethical ideal is presented based on the discussion of Confucius in the previous chapter; in addition to the four attributes, jen (仁 benevolence, humaneness), yi (義 righteousness, propriety), li (禮 observance of rites), chih (智 wisdom), Mencius’s idea of the unmoved heart/mind (不動心 pu tung hsin) attitude towards ming (命 decree, destiny) are also considered.
Back then, the Philippines was one of the colonies of the United States for 48 years, however when the Philippines finally gained their independence in 1946, they were yet to totally receive their freedom as United States maintained a high level of influence in the country. This caused the movement of anti American sentiment in the Philippines, however the movement is considered minority (O'Connor and Griffiths, 2007). Majority of people in the Philippines might find the influence of the United States is not a bad thing, which relate to how English is a common language in the Philippines. "American movies are not dubbed into another language for consumption in the Philippines. English also give Filipinos a competitive advantage when travelling abroad" (O'Connor and Griffiths, 2007).
Literature review The agenda-setting function of the mass media has evolved and continues to do so. Since the initial 1968 Chapel Hill study, the concept of agenda setting has become more refined and complex. The potency of agenda-setting influence is found to vary dramatically depending on certain contingent conditions of the receivers of that information and the issues themselves. Yet, as the world continues turning to be a more complex global village and audiences learn more about the world outside and form “pictures in their heads” about issues, the power of the media to influence is not to be underestimated. Brosius and Kepplinger (1990) found that agenda-setting effects were most likely to occur when coverage was intense and when there
