Perhaps the most significant event that occurred on October 7, 2015 was the exclusive screen of Finding the Gold Within in the W.V.M. Fines Arts Center. This film touched my soul because it revealed the concerns of young, black males at predominately white institutions. Although the students encountered similar problems as students at historically black colleges, their struggles differed due to the fact that racism was one of the greatest obstacles during their college experience.

In the memoir, The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls, the author, was most influenced by her time in Phoenix, as indicated by how she describes the living situation in her grandma's old house with the money, and the time they had to tie her dad down because he was going delusional.

The first time was just to visit Grandma Smith, but the second time they came back to stay for awhile in Grandma Smith’s old house. The family’s time in Phoenix is described mainly about the house there and what happened in or around that house.
However, I have come to terms with the fact that all I have is my story and even though it may not be the saddest or dramatic, what is important is, it is my own and I know how difficult it has been for me to overcome the obstacles in my life. Being a black woman I have learned early on that I need to work twice as hard in order to be taken seriously, and there are certain obstacles that I will face because I am a woman as well as the fact that I am black that many others do not face.
Mary Tyler Moore taught me many lessons during my research. She taught me to keep trying even when things get rough. Mary Tyler Moore had to deal with her son dying from a self inflicted gunshot wound and also dealt with alcoholism, but Mary did not let those things bring her down. She kept acting though those things and ended up even stronger than before.
American journalist and politician, Clare Boothe Luce, in her opening speech at the 1960 Women’s National Press Club meeting, prepares her audience, qualifying and defending her forthcoming criticism. Luce’s purpose is to provoke thought in the journalist’s minds on what journalism is really about at its core. She adopts a frank and humorous tone to best capture the attention of her intended audience of female journalists. Through, appealing to the ethos, logos, and pathos with flattery, syllogism, and rhetorical questioning to prepare the audience for her message: “the tendency of the American press to sacrifice journalistic integrity in favor of the perceived public demand for sensationalist stories.” In the first paragraph of her speech, Luce assures the audience that “[she is] happy and flattered to be a guest of honor…”
My placement was at Toronto Rehab at the Lyndhurst location. I was placed in a seating clinic to work with neurological clients who either have a spinal cord injury, spina bifida, polio or general decline in function regarding their posture. I was assigned to work with Andree Gauthier; she has twelve years of experience when it comes to wheelchair seating and positioning. My placement started from March 6 to April 7 and my work hours are 8:30am to 4:30pm. From my previous intermediate placement, I had the opportunity to do an inventory of all mobility aides residents use at the LTC home. I was able to utilize my previous knowledge and applied my skills in the seating clinic. At the seating clinic, they provide wheelchair seating assessments for custom made backrest and cushion for the clients. Clients may also require specialized drive controls or have chronic postural and skin issues where past interventions have been unsuccessful. I had the opportunity to experience many learning opportunities at the seating clinic that will help me in my future practice as a health care professional.
The rapid increase in the programs and websites has also inclined the rivalry among different channels for targeted audience and advertisement companies. In line, to raise the competition and rivalry, the demand for economic content is increased (e.g. latest celebrity gossip, their love-life, trendiness and new fashions in the industry) in order to complete the flourishing quantity of broadcasting time.

Once the main focus of public relations was to prepare talented peoples with their relative interests and analysis of those benefits that are gained by them but now it involves more dimensions.

He clarifies the best routes for any ruler or sovereign to govern a region, bring prosper to the society, and keep up their position.

He maintains that the ruler 's primary goal should be conquering, staying in control of the general public and to always have the idea of war in mind. His ideas seemed utterly straightforward as he used simple logic, thus i liked his view points, even though i had a few disagreements with his ideas of solutions to some problems. Some of his central opinions based around the idea that its better to be feared than to be loved by people. to not be unbiased and to disregard flattery.
