Decline of Formal Letter Writing
Once the only means of long distance communication, the formal letter has taken a plunge in popularity over the past century. The telephone was the first major technological development that led to the decline of formal letter writing. Even before the telephone became commonplace, the telegram served as a quick or instant mode of long-distance communication that substituted for a formal letter. Wire services such as the telegram or the telephone offer conveniences that the formal letter cannot, such as immediate delivery or live conversation. However, the contents of a long formal letter cannot be contained in the small package of a telegram. Phone calls can be expensive, and do not offer the opportunity to write poetically. Formal letters, whether they are love letters to and from estranged partners, political messages from leader to leader, or letters from sons serving in the military, are a…… [Read More]
letter to explain my absence from recent classes.
The reason for my absence is that I had an accident that left me with a broken leg, as well as injuries to my shoulder and head. I was admitted to the hospital last week and was just discharged on Monday, October 12th.
The effects of my injuries are an ongoing issue for me. I was able to attend Dr. Lee's class yesterday (Oct. 13th), but I was unable to complete the school day because of pain. I was also having some issues with my crutches that compromised my mobility. I am struggling with the crutches because of the shoulder injury, which has left me unable to properly balance my left side.
To resolve this issue, I will be receiving replacement crutches today (Oct. 14th), and hopefully that will restore my mobility. I expect that if the new crutches work that I…… [Read More]
Because the course is literature, we expect a challenging course that demands English language expertise. Yet as a professor, Doe is required to be encouraging. She is supposed to help her students excel, and not supposed to make her students feel belittled. Professor Doe expects that all her students perform at exactly the same level at exactly the same time, rather than acknowledge the diversity of learning style, experience, or pace.
I believe that Professor Doe is ill prepared either to adapt her instruction to address the individual needs of her students, or unable to identify appropriate, fair, and reasonable accommodations for them. Professor Doe does not seem to appreciate or acknowledge the value that foreign students have in her class. Rather than offer foreign students opportunities for academic advancement or personal progress, Professor Doe simply dismisses us with disdain. It has been left solely up to Professor Doe's students…… [Read More]
letter at one instance or another. Accountants are of no exception in writing letters. In many circumstances, they are required to write a letter to the government, clients, or fellow professionals. The letters have a common characteristic; they are official. Therefore, they ought to be written appropriately, considering several properties. Among these features should be a well-organized letter, style, the right tone and format (May & May, 2012). Writing a letter in the appropriate way assures the writer that readers will receive the message as intended.
A comprehensive letter requires proper organization. Such a letter should include an introduction, body and a conclusion. The introduction informs a reader about the themes contained in the letter. The body contains discussion of the themes mentioned in the introduction. These themes should be arranged according to their priority. It should be noted that paragraphs of a formal letter should be short and precise.…… [Read More]

Letter of Advice to Couple
Dear Sara and Tim, it is wonderful to discern that you are one of those smart couples who take their relationship seriously and are always looking out for guidance and a valuable piece of advice to keep their marital relationship healthy and tight. In the following lines, I will be discussing the necessary concepts that are crucial for the development of a happy relationship. Through my experience, I discovered that many troubles in a relationship crop up only due to the lack of interpersonal communication. This area of relationship grooming is highly significant; however it always suffers profuse negligence. Meaningful communication that would lead to the solution of hovering misunderstandings and troubles is very powerful in turning any spoiling relationship back to normal. This letter is designed to help you regarding various misconceptions and troubles which you must be facing and interpersonal…… [Read More]

Support for health care bill
I am writing to request for your support in the health insurance bill. As you know, a proper health is vital and that we cannot enjoy wealth and other luxuries if we are not healthy. However, diseases like Influenza cough and other serious illness are unavoidable in our daily life. In addition, lifestyle changes have caused many individuals to suffer from illnesses like cancer, stroke, and heart attack. For those reasons, I advocate that the government should give health insurance to its citizens. The health insurance will insure against the risk of incurring health expenses (Hitchcock, Schubert & Thomas, 2003). This happens by first estimating the risk of health care among individuals. An insurer can then develop a routine finance structure such as payroll tax or a monthly premium. I believe the implementation of a Health Insurance Bill…… [Read More]
The U.S. Census indicates that one is six residents in the Washington, DC metropolitan area is at risk of or is already regularly experiencing hunger (U.S. Census ACS 2006-2008). We believe that hunger should not exist in a nation as blessed with resources as the United States, especially among children. That hunger exists to such an extent in the nation's capital is especially unacceptable.
Community of Hope DC is seeking $400,000 to establish a food bank program as part of our charitable services. There is currently a grassroots movement in our community that is focused on bringing fresh local food from the countryside surrounding Washington into the city. Community of Hope DC would like to combine this "local food" movement with the agenda of feeding the poor and homeless. We would like to set up a food bank that collects unsold produce from the many farmers' markets in the city…… [Read More]
According to the Dictionary, a lord is "a monarch, ruler, governor, [Milton] Master, supreme person [Shakespeare]; a tyrant, an oppressive ruler, [Hayward]; a husband, [Pope] One who is at the head of any business, an overseer [Turner]; a nobleman [Shakespeare]; a general name for a peer of England [King Charles]; a baron; an honorary title applied to officers, as lord chief justice, lord mayor, lord chief baron; a ludicrous title given by the vulgar to a hump-backed person, traced, however, to the Greek crooked (439). Johnson, not a lord, is a man who calls himself a humble scholar. He uses his posture supposed humility ironically before Chesterfield, as he does the term patron: "hen I had once addressed your Lordship in public, I had exhausted all the art of pleasing which a retired and uncourtly scholar can possess. I had done all that I could; and no man is well…… [Read More]

Why Andrew is best suited to Receive the Award
For the reasons I highlight in this text, Andrew has my full backing as recipient of the award. This particular candidate has over time demonstrated that he has the ability to not only enhance student learning, but to also spearhead the progress of learners. On this front, in addition to efficiently making use of formal and informal assessments to guide instruction, Andrew is also an avid user of student tracking systems (the Engrade online system to be particular).
The candidate also stands out in classroom instruction. This is more so the case given that he continues to meet student expectations (particularly by grading them on the same level regardless of Gen Ed. Or IEP) and demonstrate academic rigor by ensuring that all essays and work are common core aligned. I also dare say that the candidate's rapport…… [Read More]
Different experts have defined emotional intelligence in their own ways. In the following paragraph, I will share some definitions with you.
According to Mayer and Salovery (1997), emotional intelligence is the capacity to reason about emotions and increase the thinking level. Bar-on (1997) on the other side, gives a simple definition by saying that emotional intelligence is to effectively understand each other, relate to them and adapt the immediate surroundings. Another definition was given by Marques in 2007 states that emotional intelligence is an "an ability to recognize the meanings of emotion & their relationships and to reason and problem solve on the basis of them."
All these definitions have one thing common; which is to understand and know each other's emotions by enhancing and broadening the thinking level. Both of you need to be emotionally intelligent if you want to make a successful lifetime relationship, especially you Jeff. You…… [Read More]
As President, one of your chief responsibilities for the next four years is to effectively communicate America's ideals to an increasingly skeptical audience, both at home and abroad, and unless you are prepared for the fluid nature of modern media dissemination, these efforts will be stunted from the onset.
Another aspect of governing effectively in ashington concerns the role of special-interest groups, and their armies of paid lobbyists, which have effectively consolidated much of the power existing within the Congressional chamber. Rather than openly distance your Administration from these potentially valuable resources, as President Obama did repeatedly during his idealistic campaigns, and risk the appearance of impropriety when you inevitably deal with lobbyists and special interests, it is advisable to be transparent with the voting public. hen one objectively considers the overlap between elected public officials and paid lobbyists, "the reality is that many former officials of both parties have…… [Read More]
letter of recommendation which I, as being a graduate of interpersonal communication measures, have dealt with to a recently wedded pair - Lara and Jack Sawyer. The main objective of this document has been to focus on a few of the primary interpersonal communication problems that emerge in freshly married partners accompanied by guidance, based on pertinent scholarly documents, which will help them get around these communication problems.
Just before the problem of communication is explained in depth, it is actually essential to figure out what plays a role in relationship fulfillment to be able to position communication inside a theoretical framework. Scientific studies in this field seem to have largely been led by an essential theory of relationship quality and steadiness produced by Lewis and Spanier (1979). These scientists specify relationship quality as being the subjective assessment related to the connection on numerous interpersonal relationship designs as well as…… [Read More]
Much of the time this goes hand-in-hand with enabling users or readers to easily navigate a website or document, as simplicity makes navigation simpler, but at times these two can also be in opposition to each other. Navigation makes the access of necessary and important information -- from the point-of-view of both the author and the reader -- more likely to be found and obtained, and thus utilized (Markel 2009). Developing visual means to allow for simple navigation is one of the essential goals of document design, and these documents vary in contrasting ways when their success in this goal is assessed.

letter in a more introductory fashion, stating that I've been visiting the facility and found some problems that need attention. Then I would request that the manager implement the requested changes. I would also change the reference to ethnic minorities, and persons who grew up in poverty and in single-parent homes. It is a valid statement, but it sounds very derogatory. Basic cleanliness does not have to be taught in a class. Instead, the requirements for joining the staff can be drafted in a written document to serve as a guide for cleanliness. Perhaps a class in basic cleanliness might be seen as somewhat insulting. There are better ways to handle such an issue.
I do believe that the tone is adequate. It's very formal, straightforward and polite. The focus on politeness has been maintained throughout the exchanges with the manager, and the draft of the letter is no exception.…… [Read More]

Drawing gives one the ability to use not only imagination but also perception to create artistic depictions of what we see.
[Letter of Critique]
What really entices me about drawing class is that it provides us with the opportunity to invent our own way to draw. Instead of mimicking another's style, we have the creative license to really create people and things as we perceive them, even with an untrained eye.
What better way than drawing to shape what we see in our mind's eye. This is particularly true of drawing other people in the class. We actually compose an image in our mind of the person we see. I may note the shape and color of their eyes, when another student looking at the same person I am, focuses…… [Read More]

Metropolitan Museum of Art: The Love Letter
This paper examines the piece The Love Letter, created in 1770 by Jean -- Honore Fragonard. The painting consists of oil on canvas and is 32 3/4 x 26 3/8 in. (83.2 x 67 cm) and originates in France. The painting was originally part of a series of decorative panels which were commissioned by Madame du Barry, one of the loves of Louis XV, for her house which was located at Louveciennes. However, once the panels were finished, she rejected them as being unsuitable for her tastes. This painting was executed before the entire series as a pitch to acquire her commission. The Love Letter in many ways is characteristic of Fragonard's style as a whole: it has warm and muted coloring with a strong eroticism which is present, though somewhat hidden. Fragonard is one who made an entire career from portraying the…… [Read More]

As a nurse it is very important to me to see that all people who need healthcare have access to it. In order for our nation to be healthy it is important that everyone have access to affordable health care.
Funding for this program should be achieved with both public and private funding sources in order not to put a burden upon either source and yet be able to provide the care that is much needed in this country.
With the overwhelming concern for the growing number of uninsured Americans it is very important that we put a plan in place that will allow all Americans to have affordable health care coverage and be able to get the health care that they need when they need it.

As well I can see that she has wore royal headdress that usually a king wears but the uraeus (cobra) is linked with the female individuals, though both kings and queens use it. The uraeus is linked to the sun god. Here I remember and you also know dear Zeus one of our beliefs that God took the eyes from Sun. This uraeus in front of her headdress makes me feel like she is the goddess though it symbolizes her kinship.
Yet I am feeling that her portrayal and imagery is different from the Canonical practice however, I am also feeling that it was essential for creating her female king identity. It also makes me feel that Hatshepsut created her image very carefully and slowly and was able to cultivate her identity because in her images she is portrayed as female king and not as a male king.

There are several positive aspects of the letter reviewed within this assignment and which will be evaluated herein. It is obvious from even a cursory read of this document that the author is very confident and fairly talented. However, there is a thin line between confidence and overstepping one's boundaries, and there are a few places in the letter in which the author's approach could stand some restructuring and re-phrasing to emphasize a greater degree of professionalism. By adhering to a more formal format for this cover letter, it is not improbable that the author could obtain the position that he desires.
Still, the basic structure of the letter itself is commendable. The fact that the author has written this on letterhead with his contact information at the top is beneficial, and he follows the general structure for a business letter nicely, including leaving a space between the…… [Read More]
I can assure you that it would have been much shorter if I had been writing from a comfortable desk," (para. 47). The use of sarcasm allows King to retain his sense of confidence rather than to seem conciliatory to those who have thrwarted civil rights. Earlier on, King also uses sarcasm to enhance the confident tone of his writing. "I am sure that none of you would want to rest content with the superficial kind of social analysis that deals merely with effects and does not grapple with underlying causes." (para 4).
To achieve a balanced tone in the letter, King blends anger regarding discrimination with the hope of liberation. Doing so, King frames civil rights as a necessary part of achieving the social order and the goals of the Founding Fathers. He remains angry while also pointing out that liberation was the ultimate goal of American Independence. King…… [Read More]

Evidence-Based Design in Healthcare Facility Planning
This Letter to Stakeholders aims to help the recipients appreciate the importance of evidence-based design in the planning of Healthcare Facilities.
Dear Sir / Madam
I feel happy to share with you the letter that explains about the upcoming healthcare renovation project. There are a lot of disruptive changes happening in the healthcare landscape and the application of evidence-based design (EBD) is prominent among them. It is essential that we understand the features of the model before taking a final decision. I have put my perspective on why adopting the EBD model for our renovation project is important.

Motivational Letter: Creative Sustainability at Aalto University
The Master's Degree Programme in Creative Sustainability at Aalto University is one of the most unique programs in the world in the rapidly-developing field of sustainable commerce. Today, it is rare to find a major company that does not have a section of its website devoted to sustainability. Sustainability is a popular 'buzzword' in the business press. Yet sustainability is not merely something that is fashionable: it must become the core of how businesses develop their standard operating procedure and approach the environment.
The Creative Sustainability Programme attracts me because of its recognition that sustainability is more than recycling or fair trade: it is reworking the entire focus of a company to take an environmentally-friendly view of the future and rethink what it means to be efficient and productive. The programme's merging of architecture, various features of design, construction, business operations, landscaping, and…… [Read More]

It is very clear to me the demands medical school has upon a person's time and character. Though I am well aware that nothing I do beforehand can fully prepare me for the experience of medical school, I have made substantial efforts to build my character as well as prepare my mind and body for the adventure of medical school.
One of the most valuable experiences a person can participate in is to volunteer, which is one reason why I have a variety of volunteer activities. Practicing medicine and being a licensed physician is, for me, a kind of civil service -- an overt dedication to one's community. I do not believe that any person, particularly a person who intends to be a doctor should wait until the formal training commences for the doctor's dedication to the community to begin.

damages is whether or not there is a contract that has been breached. Under Texas law, a plaintiff must be establish four elements in order to prevail on a breach of contract clam. The four elements are: 1) the existence of a valid contract; 2) performance or tendered performance by the plaintiff; 3) breach of the contract by the defendant; and 4) damages sustained by the plaintiff as a result of the breach (Valero Mkfg. & Supply Co. v. Kalama Int'l. LLC).
The best evidence available for the plaintiff in establishing a possible breach of contract action is the loan commitment letter issued on March 31, 2005.

Additionally, the bank's employee, Max Brandt, assured the plaintiffs that compliance with the new term was not…… [Read More]
Standardization, Expectation, and Judgment in Language Use
We are often advised as college students to write our papers in "standard academic English." If we are putting together a resume or drafting a formal letter, we are expected to use "standard English" as well. In our daily speech patterns in formal situations, our parents or mentors have at some point encouraged us to use "proper" English in order to reflect well on ourselves and our education and background (and on them, of course). But what, exactly, is "standard" English? Who gets to decide? Must it be grammatically perfect? Are long, multi-syllabic words more effective than short, simple ones?
Is there a standardized language we are supposed to use for certain formal situations, and if so, what is it, and how do we learn it? For example, some English texts and teachers advise students to avoid ending a sentence in a preposition;…… [Read More]

Exegetical Analysis of 1st Peter 2:1-10
The New Testament's two documents, ascribed to Peter, represent a work in contrasts. Peter's first letter depicts a writing style, which reflects most of his letters. A reason behind this statement appears in 1 Pet. 5:12, where it is stated that the brief letter is written through Silvanus, who is regarded as a devoted brother, for encouraging readers and testifying that this truly is God's grace. This implies that the letter was not written by Peter himself, but by Silvanus (Latin name for Silas), who wrote it as directed by Peter. An ancient universal system for writing formal letters was through an amanuensis (Latin for writing secretary). Predictably, an individual who spent the major part of his adulthood traveling with Paul, the apostle, and had most probably also written some letters of Paul, would write Peter's ideas with a distinct Pauline quality to them.…… [Read More]

The act of complaining has many negative connotations which distract from the notion that complaining effectively is an art that every person can develop and refine. Simply put, to complain is to tell someone that you are unhappy with a particular service, product, or behavior. Whether you are interested in complaining to a retail establishment, a political organization, or to an individual person about a personal matter, there are several simple steps which can ensure that your voice is properly, and appropriately, heard. Although there are a wide variety of situations where one might register a complaint, for the purposes of this essay I will discuss the art of complaining about a product. Rest assured, these steps can be easily applied to any number of different circumstances.
The primary mistake that many people make when complaining is to allow their emotions to overwhelm what they are trying to…… [Read More]
Dan's first step would be to speak with a representative in Human esources, outlining his concerns in writing, citing the legalities and the potential liability to the firm. He needs to do this in a non-confrontational manner that focuses specifically on the ethical issue, and not the personality conflicts.
Dan, in fact, has several issues towards his benefit. 1) Ethics are not an "except for" and he has the legal and moral obligation to provide correct and ethical work for his clients and his company; 2) if he had followed his supervisor's instructions, he would be challenging professional accountancy codes as well as putting his, and the firm's, professional and legal integrity on the line; 3) if Dan does nothing and something does go wrong, he will be the scapegoat unless there is a clear paper trail showing the steps he took to mitigate the situation.

Minimizing Poverty Is a Government Initiative
The Progressive Era
Poverty reduction has remained a central debate in periodical democratic societies. Schemes have been established to enable citizens to be economically viable either at paid-employment or self-employment level. Activists, philosophers, and politicians have suggested technical, liberal, and legal approaches towards poverty eradication. In fact, most of the debate in relation to the field of poverty examines whether poverty is a natural phenomenon associated with human beings. As this report will identify, fighting poverty is a double-edged sword since, after all, poverty is not the only member of the league. Close players include capitalism and politics. The commencing research proves that reducing poverty is a sequential process that requires considerate participation from all stakeholders. The research will principally cite Darwin's Social Darwinism theory, the 1933-1936 national initiative New Deal and Johnson Lyndon Economic Opportunity Act.

Letter of Transmittal
This report is concerned with the transition of leadership on a crucial project that requires a seamless transition due to the importance of the project to the company and the significance of the team already in place. Due to the fact that this team has worked as an insular, cohesive unit for approximately two years perfecting this project, it is necessary to have a transition that approximates the qualities of the present leader. Unfortunately, this transition has become necessary, but it should not be difficult to find the right person going forward. This is a detailed report that lists the leadership criteria needed and the determination of the search team. The recommendation is to search outside of the company for a leader that exhibits the needed qualities and can provide continued and steady leadership for this crucial project.

The nature of the juvenile justice system may be adversarial at times, but unlike the adult criminal system it is not necessarily so. Agreement is the goal. In fact, depending on the nature of the offense, a juvenile case may be dismissed or dealt with in an informal hearing, rather than subject to formal proceedings at all.
The purpose of the juvenile system is almost always to rehabilitate the offender, rather than to enact social retribution. Given that our society believes that a child usually does not have the moral or cognitive capacity to judge the wrongfulness or rightness of his or her own actions like an adult, there seems to be a need for two systems of justice. For example, a child who burns down a building because he is playing with matches is unlikely to deserve the same type of sentence or treatment as an adult who commits…… [Read More]
Accounting Information for Decision Making
Corporate Confirming on Water isk (Feb 2010) indicates that the Global Confirming Initiative (GI) G3 Guidelines' five water-related indications (total withdrawal volume by source, ponds considerably impacted by distributions, percentage and total amount of water recycled and used again, total water discharge by quality and destination, and identification water physiques and related habitats impacted by discharges) make the perfect beginning point for assessing and confirming water risks. Within this section, we'll briefly discuss the relevance of all these standards (Power, 2010).
Total water withdrawal by source
Confirming the entire amount of water withdrawn by source adds for knowledge of the general scale of possible influences and threats connected using the company's water use. The entire volume withdrawn offers an indication from the organization's proper size and significance as a user of water and offers to set up a baseline figure for other information relevant to…… [Read More]
In that regard, we are never too busy to talk to parents about their children. If you had called me to explain Hillary's concerns, I might have been able to get her an exemption from detention under the circumstances. Even if I could not have done that, I could at least have assured Hillary (and you) that detention would have, essentially, allowed her to do exactly what you allowed her to do at home: she would have been asked to sit in the classroom under the supervision of a teacher and to read her book during that period or to do any other schoolwork she wished to do. Had we been able to discuss the matter in advance, Hillary might have received an exemption from detention, or at least an explanation to allay her fears about what it was. However, it would have been much more beneficial to Hillary to…… [Read More]
Parent Teacher Communication
Parent-teacher letters provide a formal mechanism for regular communication from the teacher to the parent about the progress the child is or is not making in school. There are a couple of purposes for these letters. This first is simply to inform the parents about the status of the child in the educational setting. The second is to elicit a dialogue and relationship between the parent and teacher. Parent-teacher relationships have been demonstrated to be an important component of student success (Chan, 2013) so fostering a stronger parent-teacher relationship should be expected to have positive outcomes for students.
The audience for this type of communication are the parents. The student should receive feedback through separate channels, and these letters should specifically provide information with the parents in mind. Most frequently, such letters take a couple of different forms. The first is as a complement to a report…… [Read More]
Response from District Superintendent
How did the parents' letter make you feel? Be candid in your response.
How did I feel when reading this belligerent letter? My first impression after reading half way through the letter was, here is a member of (or an ideological believer in) the Tea Party and the school's multicultural programs give him a perfect opportunity to rage against immigration. Reading all the way through, and reading it a second time, it is apparent that the father has a chip on his shoulder because he served in combat missions and now that he is out of uniform he believes he has the right to rage against what he feels is too much attention paid to other cultures / subcultures in America.
He can say that he was in the service with others of different nationalities and ethnicities -- and therefore he can't…… [Read More]
career interest is accounting. Accountancy is the process of evaluating the financial information about business entities to users such as the managers of the shareholders (Elliot, & Elliot, 2004). Accountancy falls into three areas: accounting, bookkeeping, and auditing.
I choose accounting since it will give me a solid employment with a lucrative wage and this is what is important to me. I have also learned that it can be fun in the investigative way if I se it as such. The work conditions are fine -- not too tedious and best of all I can structure them at my convenience. I can work either for an institution or be self-employed. Chances for advancement also depend on myself and, best of all, I can find global opportunities in any and every business..

Part of the set-up process should include an inventory of staff talent: a company needs to develop a database system "to catalog [staff] capabilities and equipment" including phone numbers, address, personal email addresses. If suddenly a key telecommuter is unavailable for any reason, alert organizations have "hordes of unofficial 'guerilla' teleworkers" that can step in remotely as needed. Hewlett-Packard (HP) for example has set up a "teleworker-tracking" database; this allows HP to use competent substitutes on a moment's notice, helping HP to "leverage the competitive Internet access rates for the home office." The HP system also provides flexibility to existing staff; indeed, 70% of HP's workforce in the U.S. has the training and ability to work remotely and about 10,000 HP employees "have given up dedicated office space entirely" (orldatork.org).

Consultant Cover Letter
CEO, Capellon Pharmaceuticals
This memo serves as an introduction to my consulting services and a briefing of the work I have just completed for Capellon. I met with Alexi Parsons two weeks earlier to outline a plan for my consultation and to set this day as the target for completion of my research. Below, I describe my perspective of the challenges Capellon faces, my research findings, and my recommendations to you and the board of directors.
Challenges. Productivity and morale have decreased company-wide. Resources have been heavily allocated to the marketing department, but year-over-year sales fell markedly.
Staff resisted required changes in policies and interactions have been sophomoric. Consequently, turnover had reached unacceptable levels that threaten to mare the company's reputation in the industry. The marketing manager does not have leeway to function effectively and is chronically micromanaged by superiors who do not understand the operations of…… [Read More]

Impact of Email to Business Communication
Implications of Emails as Business Communication Tools
Email is an important form of communication in today's organization that is increasingly seeing a geographical dispersal of the workforce. To communication tool has replaced traditional business letters and memos in preference for email memos. The research carried out a review of literature on email and business communication and found the tool is used in 100% of businesses today. However, despite the wide acceptance, the tool lacks in social and visual cues which lender the messages toneless. The lack of tone and physical gestures leads to misinterpretation, ill will, disconnectedness, loss of intellectual capital and integrity for the business. The research finds that the informal history of emails, heterogeneity among users, technological limitations in social-emotions, and lack of…… [Read More]
Graff Asserts that literacy played a less significant role in the industrialization of American than was one thought. He argues that training people to read and write was not enough. Literacy alone was not enough to advance the industrialized nation (Cattau).
Douglas did not need to know how to read to perform his job in the shipyard. He only needed to know how to write four letters. He did not need to how to read and write proficiently. The workforce may have needed little bits of knowledge to perform their jobs, but this is different from being able to read and write fluently, which supports Graff's ideas on the importance of reading and writing to the industrial age. It relied more on the availability of a workforce, rather than the need for a literate workforce. The only ones that needed to learn to read and write were the managers and…… [Read More]
The continuing economic recession that began in 2008 in the United States greatly exacerbated that revenue problem as people reduced their unnecessary use of postal services and increased their use of private-sector competitors such as United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (FedEx). To date, the USPS has been slow to respond to competition, particularly in relation to the adoption of the bar coding system that has long been in use by UPS and FedEx and that is considered to have been instrumental in their increase of the market share (Brewster & Dalzell, 2007).
The USPS already has formal plans to adopt such mechanisms by the year 2013, but those plans preceded the economic crisis of 2008 and the precipitous nature of funding issues affecting its operations in the current political climate. In that regard, the USPS is also saddled with significant pension obligations that have inspired considerable attention in…… [Read More]
Clearly she has not been a good steward of her classes because the principal twice visited her class and both times she was working individually with a student while other students were misbehaving or otherwise not being productive.
The Trenton district was also negligent because state law requires that all computers in public schools have software that prevents -- or filters out -- inappropriate materials. A public school cannot allow students to access pornography, whether it was just a little stunt that some boys pulled to get attention, or whether they were actually curious about a porn site and hoped to access it for a thrill of some kind.
Additionally, the Trenton school district is also potentially negligent because the Connecticut Guidelines for Teacher Evaluation Programs (Duke, 1995) require that before a teacher gets a contract, he or she must pass "…an essential skills examination (CONNCEPT)"; in fact teachers must…… [Read More]
Business Communications Final Analysis Report
In order to apply the strategies and decisions formulated in the initial phases of the communication research, they are applied in the context of business communication, particularly in group decision-making processes. In the final analysis report, the case study on the Creative Media team conflict is discussed, addressing the prevalent issues that bring about miscommunication within the team.
The case study on the Creative Media team situation has the following specifics: Gap Jeans, Inc. is planning to launch a new advertising campaign for its new product, called the Gap Washed Jeans, which features a denim-wash (faded look) feature for women, which will be available in hipster and flared styles. Gap is looking for a creative ad agency that will conceptualize and produce the ad campaign, although specific information about the nature of the ad campaign is not yet formulated. Thus, the whole advertising and marketing…… [Read More]
Commonplace: "You Always Admire hat You Really Don't Understand"
There are a great many things that arouse admiration in this world of ours. Some of these things such as a creation of nature, a work of breathtaking art, scientific breakthroughs that benefit human kind, and acts of bravery are, without doubt, worthy of the admiration and the sentiment that they inspire. Unfortunately, however, human beings also fruitlessly admire a great many more things that are illusory in nature and, therefore, not really worthy of respect. Take, for instance, the human desire to be good looking, rich, successful and powerful. These qualities seem desirable purely because people who possess these attributes appear to be better off in life. But, are they really? Or, do these qualities give rise to admiration only because we don't really understand what being beautiful, wealthy, successful or powerful entails?
Perhaps, it is precisely the recognition that…… [Read More]
functional literacy activities? What are some examples?
Functional literacy activities refer to activities that focus on reading or writing in direct connection to actual tasks that can be easily applied or used in the real world. For example, functional literary activities might involve reading street signs, reading maps or drafting a grocery list.
What are ways to share literature with young children? What are important factors to consider when selecting literature to share and stocking classroom libraries? What are some effective story-reading strategies (read-alouds and shared reading)?
One way to share literature with young children would be to present it in the most dynamic and hands on approach possible. For example, using puppets or dolls or figurines when presenting a new book to students can be a way to help engage students' minds and imagination. Or dynamic follow-up activities which relate to the text can also be used with success:…… [Read More]
Ross (1988) notes the development of Romanticism in the late eighteenth century and indicates that it was essentially a masculine phenomenon:
Romantic poetizing is not just what women cannot do because they are not expected to; it is also what some men do in order to reconfirm their capacity to influence the world in ways socio-historically determined as masculine. The categories of gender, both in their lives and in their work, help the Romantics establish rites of passage toward poetic identity and toward masculine empowerment. Even when the women themselves are writers, they become anchors for the male poets' own pursuit for masculine self-possession. (Ross, 1988, 29)
