In the essay, Mark Twain is saying that humans are the lowest of animals. Instead of evolving from lower species, human have descended from higher ones. “In order to determine the difference between an anaconda and an earl (if any) I caused seven young calves to be turned into the anaconda’s cage. The grateful reptile immediately crushed one of them and swallowed it, then lay back satisfied. It showed no further interest in the calves, and no disposition to harm them… The fact stood proven that the difference between an earl and an anaconda is that the earl is cruel and the anaconda isn’t….” (Twain 2). This is one example Twain uses to explain to the reader one of the reasons why he believes man is the lowest of animals. This example tells
Speeches are used to commemorate points of history, and inform the general public of the product of their history but what makes a speech so impacting on it’s audience? Rhetorical devices give speeches and works of literature a way that can convey feelings or ideas to a viewer. When addressing during times of war or chaos, people such as Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, and Winston Churchill used these terms to better connect with their audience. Without these tools of the english language, dialogue and literature would be all the more dull and unappealing. However, with these useful instruments, writers and speakers can better communicate through some of the many rhetorical devices.
During the 1980s, space exploration was a popular topic to watch, listen to, and learn about in American life. NASA had already sent a lot of missions to space, all reaching new milestones and increasing interest in space exploration. The Challenger, however, had a different mission than the rest. It was going to carry the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, into space where she would teach two lessons. There were six other men and women on board the Challenger. At this time, space exploration was at its peak and all of America was following the space program. Throughout the day, most of the televisions in the nation were tuned to the Challenger launch. One minute and twelve seconds into the launch, the space shuttle exploded. Such a traumatic
Huxley’s main argument in Brave New World is if the human race continues to allow science, technology, and material objects control our lives, society will lose a reasonable and moral lifestyle. Huxley’s argument is well-presented because Huxley executes the creation of a dystopian world in which tyrannical leaders are able to control the consumption, emotions, and fears of the entire population through the use of technology. In the novel World State uses technology to make citizens simple-minded and controls every aspect of their lives. To readers the practices of World State might be unjust but many aspects of the novel relate to the real world.
The text being analyzed is a film called “Race to Nowhere” by Jessica Congdon and Vicki Abeles. In this film, the directors talk about the stress and pressure placed on students to do well and to succeed in today’s educational system. There are multiple speakers in this film including students, teachers, and parents. This film is mainly intended towards the three previously mentioned groups;students, teachers, and parents. The intended message of this film is that improving the educational system will better the lives of children and young adults. The thesis statement for this film is that the documentary Race to Nowhere, directed by Jessica Congdon and Vicki Abeles effectively argues about the flawed educational system by providing real life examples, statistics and credible sources to convey how students are negatively affected mentally and physically by the educational system. Throughout the film the directors are trying to persuade parents and teachers not to put so much stress on students and to understand that they are just kids and they can only take so much before it starts to
Since 1996, Royal Dutch Shell (Shell) had been promoting the diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives, which aimed to increase the variety of compositions and values the differences such as, age, sex, gender, race, nationality, and education (Sucher & Corsi, 2012, p. 5). Yet, Voser’s, the new Chief Executive Officer, Top Management Team (TMT), was dominated by middle-age American and European men from 2008 to 2009. Because diversity could have both positive and negative impacts on the company (Webber and Donahue, 2001) and the nature of industry as well as the contextual circumstances could both support or hinder various diversity characteristics (Cannella et al., 2008), the implications regarding the short run situations and
Do you know the importance of having a hierarchy structure within any given work space? Without structure there would be no clear line of communication between workers. Having a structure in a workplace establishes communication skills, defuses conflicts, and also provides awareness of leaders who are in charge of you. The most fundamental and important organizational concept used by military is the chain of command. Chain of Command can be defined as the succession of commanders superior to subordinates. Soldiers should utilize their Chain of Command to work through any given situation when a leader cannot solve the situation at hand.
“Integration and Desegregation”, written by Ralph Wiley addresses issues with integration and how helpful it could be to desegregate areas in the community to benefit all of the citizens and not just one group.”Affirmative Action”, written by Shelby Steele addresses the issue of people using a tool that is meant to help as a reason to be lazy. Both of the authors in the passages use extreme negatives and positive examples to get their points across to their audience, resulting in the reader having to think about what the author is really saying.
In the article, “Some Teens Start College Work Early Via Dual Enrollment” written by Joanne Jacobs,from the U.S. News and World Report Education, discussed a current path that most high schoolers are taking that will lead them to college success. Jacobs uses ethos and logos to prove the successfulness of the Dual Enrollment Program. The program offers students the opportunity to experience college life, to gain both high school and college credit, and to gain confidence.
I’m glad that you broke down on what sympathy and empathy are, there are a lot of people who get these two mixed up. But as humans we will always have sympathy for others, but for most of us we will never know how to empathize with others. Having both of them are great to have in the Human Service field but we cannot let it consume us, we were called upon to help them in the best we can for them. But you make great points in the scriptures that you use, every day I wake up and tell myself to become more like God. In the Human Services field we are there to improve the situations of others, and to be able to help them when they cannot help themselves anymore. Having a positive characteristic for others with making a differences in people’s lives.
As described in the Leviathan by 17th century political philosopher, Thomas Hobbes, humans are "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short" (Hobbes). Hobbes believed that humans are inherently flawed, and will naturally create anarchy amongst themselves due to their nature. In the novel Brave New World written by Aldous Huxley in 1931, the world controller of the state, Mustapha Mond, manifests this idea through the rhetorical question, "What 's the point of truth or beauty of knowledge when the anthrax bombs are popping all around you"(Huxley 228)? As science was explored unrestrictedly, citizens of the World State began to fight each other. Although Mond 's argument ultimately leads to the sacrifice of
The organization I work for, Starbucks is highly diversified. In my opinion, Starbucks successfully employs each of the seven diversity components: “authentic leadership commitment, clear organizational communication, inclusive recruitment practices, long-term retention strategies, incorporating diversity into main work of the organization, diversity management metrics, and expansive external relationships” (CanÌas, Sondak 2014). With that being said, Starbucks could improve by incorporating diversity into main work of the organization.
Working teams that are diverse in their make-up are able to come up with a wider range of solutions to business problems. Inclusive workplaces that openly communicate their values and strategies on equality, human rights and inclusion are capitalising on this as they are able to attract a wider pool of applicants and talent. Candidates from minority groups may be put off applying for positions in organisations that do not make their commitment to inclusion known.
An organization that has a team or horizontal style of work structure and management is called as contemporary organization. Instead of a strict hierarchy, the power is spread out to the whole team in the contemporary organization. It is a more responsive and flexible. Traditional organization is changed to the contemporary organization of business. The traditional organization style concentrated on a pyramid order, with supervisors and managers controlling all components of the representatives beneath them, including interpersonal connections, ventures and disciplinary activities. Conversely, contemporary organization regularly has administrators with distinctive parts so these assignments are imparted among a gathering as cited in (Johnson,
Leadership- The ability to influence a group toward the achievement of goals. Management the use of authority inherent in designated formal rank to obtain compliance from organizational members because management positions come with some degree of formally designated authority, a person may assume a leadership role simply because of the position he or she holds in the organization. But not all leaders are manager, nor, for that matter, are all managers’ leaders. Just because an organization provides its managers with certain formal rights is no assurance that they will be able to lead effectively
