Blue Collar Brilliance Blue collar worker is a working class person who performs manual labor. Most blue collar jobs are pay by hourly rates. In contrast, white collar is a person who performs professional, managerial, or administrative work with higher pay than blue collar. There is also pink collar worker who performs jobs in the service industry. In the essay “Blue Collar Brilliance” Mike Rose argues against the commonly believe that “work requiring less schooling requires less intelligence”.
I believe that the Atacama Humanoid is in fact some form of the human race rather than it being an extra-terrestrial being. This essay will prove that the Humanoid will one day be classified as a human and no longer an extra-terrestrial being. Time and technology will allow us to do so. Firstly, I will discuss how it is impossible that the Atacama Humanoid could have been a grown human due to its body size and proportions. Secondly, I will explain how with the advanced technology of today, results have shown that even though there are similarities, there are vast disparities as well.
The act of stereotyping is assuming that all members of a group have similar knowledge, behaviors, or beliefs simply because they belong to a group. Using stereotypes is one of the most common reasons why countless people are misjudged. It can occur with the person’s knowledge or it can happen subconsciously. Sometimes, in writing, authors will form stereotypes for their characters to fit into. By using a stereotype, it sets a base for the character to build off of and show change.
Animal Farm Equality is a very misused word. In the book Animal Farm, by George Orwell, it shows good understanding of inequality. The book shows that equality is often hard to maintain. Equality is not possible when it comes to a society and individuals.
In "Outliers: The story of success", Malcom Gladwell explained and gave examples of ways to be successful. There are many ways that Gladwell mentioned, such as luck, practice, background, family, and culture. There are many more of course, but I will save time. There are three of which I think are the most important, these being Intelligence, Social Skills, and Location; and these are explanations as to why I think these are the most important.
Just imagine how much of a struggle it would be attempting to tame wild animals. In the adventure book, Swiss Family Robinson, the family tames all sorts of animals while stranded on an island. These animals were put to use for many purposes that made their lives easier. A buffalo and an ostrich are just two of the many difficult animals that were tamed.
An important trait to life that many people have is intelligence. It is an exceptionally significant feature that people use in life for either good or bad. Intelligence can be positive, bringing bigger paychecks, fame, and power. These positive aspects of intelligence sound good, but such shrewdness has its disadvantages. Some negative aspects of intellect are depression, difficulty making friends, and the lowering of self-esteem.
According to science, Human evolution is the extensive progression of many different changes man went through from its original ape-like ancestor. Evidence that scientists have collected over the decades show that there are some physical and behavioral characteristics that primates and humans share. And that the fossils that scientists have found in Africa regarding early man, show that there was a evolutionary split between early man and ape about eight to six million years ago. From what science tells us, Humans are primates. There are many physical and genetic resemblances that show that modern man, Homo sapiens, are very closely related to another group of primates, known as apes.
There are humans and there are animals that roam this Earth. If we are not that different biologically, why aren’t animals as developed as us? Why aren’t we as simple-minded as our fellow animals? There are many different beliefs as to why we have created technologies, ideas, and a future for ourselves while animals are still at the starting line whether it be scientific or religious. After a few months of book reading and researching, I have found that unlike our animal counterparts, humans have the ability to have an identity however they are shaped whether it be by our surroundings or by the people we spend time with.
There are several theories of Intelligence ranging from whether intelligence should be measured by one test or whether one can measure intelligence in several tests. Intelligence has been defined as the ability to learn from experience, solve problems, and use knowledge to adapt to new situations. Since the surroundings we live in affect our experiences, then our intelligence naturally has to vary across cultures and time. Learning from our experiences and solving problem while living in the heat of Dubai for example will require different skills and knowledge for optimal living to someone living in the Amazon rain forest where they may have to understand the medicinal qualities of local plants. One of the ways to understand intelligence is to compare and contrast the historical and contemporary
