There have been numerous challenged in the community, but none have had a very large impact since they never made it very far in the banning procedure. I learned a lot about the process a book goes through to be banned. Book banning is an ignorant thing. Ignorant being “a lack of knowledge or awareness”, and the people who want books banned are ignorant; they lack the awareness of their opposition. Some of the librarians, mainly Ms. Grant in this paper, understand both positions.
Delving into the ethics behind the Stanford Prison Experiment done by Philip Zimbardo, it has come to the public’s attention the questionability as to whether or not the experiment had followed traditional scientific manner. If the research does not follow ethical guidelines, then there is reason to believe the Stanford Prison Experiment was corrupt due to the lack information to participants, and absence of human morals Mr. Zimbardo portrayed during the time of his findings. Ethical rules provide the guidelines used to identify what is wrong and right. These decisions occur with the daily lives of average people, influencing the way they interact with the world. In the Prison Experiment, participants were not fully disclosed information about the study, resulting in stressful measures and ultimately traumatizing those who took part.
Academic ghostwriting, on the other hand, is highly controversial because only those who are a part of the academic community have insights into the practice. Ghostwriting for academic purposes can cause information to become inaccurately portrayed. Credibility is often measured by how credible the author of the work is, but when another person writes in the name of the credible source, the writing loses its credibility. Since ghostwriters do not legally have rights to their work, they cannot tell the general public about who is the true author of a
He would notice, however, that the book did include an actual slave owner's quote, but would mostly likely dislike the heading used. Additionally, Loewen would notice that racism is not mentioned, nor is the process and specifics of slavery. By not mentioning racism, this textbook makes slavery seem like a thing of the past and nothing to worry about, but it does have lasting effects that this book ignores. Although it was not in the excerpt I photographed, Loewen would also note that the book did not address any presidents having racist tendencies and remarks. Loewen would say that by not addressing racism and white-washing the abolitionist movement, that students would be ignorant to the effects of slavery and racism today.
This challenge could cause faculty members to feel restricted on what kind of information is considered appropriate to share with their classes. Finally, trigger warnings would give students an unrealistic perception of what life beyond DePauw is like. There will not always be somebody to warn them when life shakes their world a little bit. When a story regarding rape appears in a newspaper, there are no trigger warnings.
That could have been a reason on why they hated the army. “ There is some complaint that all they do is go on marches, although we are never there when they “do” go on marches. He does not resolve the complaint. There is very little detail about all their marches. Johns experiences in World War I, traveling the world, and the things he witnessed made him a very successful writer.
Draco certainly was not an open book, but Sirius Black is very misunderstood. He taught me that there are more to people than just what meets the eye. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry first learns of Sirius Black on the Knight Bus. Where Stan Shunpike, the conductor, told him Black was a mass murderer, this was backed up by the daily Prophet and, more notably, Arthur Weasley. Despite that, When Harry finally gets a chance to meet him, Sirius proves himself to be a good man, innocent of his charges, and unjustly sent to Azkaban.
Many people deface pictures in their textbooks at school, should those be valued for millions of dollars? I understand that readymades were Duchamp’s forte, but I do not consider them art. I believe that anyone could do what Duchamp did and not get any recognition, so I do not understand why it is so popular. To conclude, while the Mona Lisa is a great work of art, in my
With that said, it is no surprise that high-level employees within the company are treated like royalty. Meanwhile, those that are verbally inclined like Jimmy have a hard time finding a job after graduating from Martha Graham. Jimmy knew it wouldn’t be easy for him to land a job right after graduating Martha Graham, so he spent the summer working for the Martha Graham library. The school asks Jimmy to throw away old books, but Jimmy refused to do so. This further accentuated the demise of the artistic and creative use of language.
Those who say that the impact of technology on people’s personal identity is small, are incorrect. Throughout the book Ubik it talks about how people try to avoid changing with the changing of technology. For instance, Philip K Dick wrote about how Joe did not have the money to pay the door to open, so he tries to unscrew the bolts so that the door will open. The door threatens to sue, and Joe replies, “I’ve never been sued by a door.
This week we started reading W.J.T. Mitchell’s A Photographic Essay: Four Case Studies. As I began reading this essay, I knew immediately that it would be a difficult one. I read carefully and searched the definitions of many terms in attempt to fully comprehend the ideas expressed by Mitchell. First, I would like to key in on the pages that were assigned to our individual groups for our group projects, and explain the process I went through to fully understand and comprehend the reading that was assigned.
Professors try to justify the sudden rise in grades but their explanations hardly convinces anyone. Mark Edmundson a professor at University of Virginia, writes about this in his essay, On the Uses of a Liberal Education,. He states, "a professor at Stanford [University] recently explained grade inflation in the humanities by observing that the undergraduates were getting smarter every year; the higher grades simply recorded how much better they were than their predecessors. Sure" (Edmundson 396). Edmundson 's sarcastic tone in his writing shows that he does not believe the Stanford professor 's explanation for grade averages going up.
Anne Applebaum states “The really interesting question is not whether torture works but why so many people in our society want to believe it works.” Applebaum is against the use of torture as she questions its effectiveness. America has operated under the false pretense that torture is a viable option for obtaining information. She argues that torture damages the country’s image and does little to acquire useful intelligence. Torture is merely a way for officers to take their anger and frustration out on detainees.
In a country that promotes the ideas of grit, innovation, resourcefulness, and growth, I find it curious that American universities are still using standardized tests as an indicator of future success in college. Although standardized tests are only one factor in admissions to many colleges, they should not be used at all because they do not accurately predict the success of students in higher educational environments. Instead of using the SAT and ACT, admissions officers should put more weight on written essays, cumulative high school grade point average, extracurriculars, and letters of recommendation when deciding admissions. Although some may argue that the SAT and ACT offer a way of ranking students without factoring in grade point average, their ability to predict the future success of college students has not been demonstrated.
Using analytics in operations was a point much more strongly highlighted at the College Football Hall of Fame, than any other area of the company. However, there was not much data that could be used because it was a brand new analytical project, the first year was a test run. We relied on data from neighboring attractions as a benchmark to gauge the expectation of demand coming into the building. After that first year, the CFHOF was more efficient in the way they staffed employees, they were able to maximize productivity and reduce overspending on salary pay. Unfortunately, there were slow days when there wasn 't much traffic coming through the facilities so front line employees had their working hours reduced in an effort to reduce costs.
