In the cover photo, Oogy seems to be looking directly at the viewer. His gaze is strong yet steady and calm. One expects a pit bull to look threatening, but with Oogy's missing ear and crooked mouth, he does not look threatening at all. His direct gaze immediately engages the viewer and invites empathy. Our response is a purely emotional one.
The cover photograph is hard to look at because Oogy is so physically damaged. Yet, the visual message is indeterminate. There is no guide to interpretation, which means that people coming from different cultural paradigms will use different codes in order to decipher the message encrypted in the same image .One might assume that the dog underwent an accident or was beaten or was even born this way. The main strength of the image is the force with which it invokes unconscious identification, hence the powerful impact that the…… [Read More]

In order to be able to pass a message across using visual communication or visual aids, there are several aspects of the communication that must be taken into consideration for the visual aid to be effective and to pass the message across in a manner which is comprehensible and catches the eye of the viewer Mary Beth Watson, Narasimhan, & hee, 1998.
These can be summarised as the 7Cs of effective communication Hinds & Kiesler, 1995.
Each approach used in the visual communication is important in passing the message across. They help in making the visual aid catchy and passing the message across with ease. When designing a piece of communication,…… [Read More]
Visual Culture: The Reader. Edited by Jessica Evans and Stuart Hall. New York: Sage, 2002.
According to Victor Burgin's rendition of photography, how do photography and text relate to one another?
Photography and text never simply stand beside one another. Rather, the two exist in dialogue. Burgin suggests that when a text and a photograph exist together, they create a new text that stands apart from the two, original products -- in other words, even if the two appear to be complementary on the surface, the two fused together create a new text and message for the reader of the photograph and text, a reader who is apprehending the photograph and the words simultaneously.
For Burgin, a photograph is a text in and of itself -- although an apparently frozen image, it too tells a story. Words create images in everyone's mind, but the words are different for every reader…… [Read More]
E-Marketing in Terms of Visual Communication
Given the increased use of the Internet in past few years, e-marketing has had an indisputable progress within the past decade. Generally, daily activities and the variety of internet have created interest of consumers as many websites are creating virtual designs in order to strengthen their relations with customers. These developments have not only contributed to the creation of visual communications but have also increased e-marketing and contributed to the need for effective strategies. Therefore, an analysis of effective strategies in terms of visual communications is an important topic of study, which is the focus of the article. The main goal of study in this thesis is to analyze e-marketing websites by evaluating interaction and adverts in relation to the customer perceptions they create. Moreover, the thesis evaluates the definition of e-marketing, the development of this form of marketing, new trends in e-marketing, and…… [Read More]

James ond is presently one of the principal sexual concepts that the film puts across. Daniel Craig's ond is no longer seen as a very effective killing tool, as it shown as an object of admiration.
Craig's physical appearance is no longer a crime deterrent, as it is actually used with the purpose of impressing viewers. This ond is no longer yelling, as he speaks in a gentle voice and some might even be inclined to consider that he has become more sensitive. When considering ond's overall development, it appears that society is becoming more and more obsessed with the masculine body image and less preoccupied with manliness as an intellectual concept.
The masses in the 60s saw masculinity as an idea that needed to be exploited and largely believed that men had to be particularly aggressive in order to truly be appreciated by individuals around them. However, trends changed…… [Read More]
..now requires understanding and manipulating the processes used to create messages in the modern world" (Adams & Hamm, 2000, p. 22) in fact the student is expected to be able to decode the information from various types of media. However the equally important point is also made that this expanding definition of what literacy comprises does not "...diminish the importance of traditional reading and writing skills; rather, it recognizes the increasing importance of information and communication technology" (Adams & Hamm, 2000, p. 22).
This is an important caveat to the enthusiastic embrace of modern technology and visual aspects of modern teaching. In other words, while visual literacy has become more important and while this aspect is closely linked to the use of modern technological tools such as computer, yet the basics of teaching and education should not be forgotten. Of equal importance however is the view that; "Today's students live…… [Read More]
Fans of science fiction are fond of recalling a remark by novelist Arthur C. Clarke, to the effect that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. I am currently typing these sentences onto a laptop, where I am also currently watching a grainy YouTube video of the legendary magician Harry Houdini, performing one of his legendary escapes -- from a straitjacket, in this case. Houdini is probably the most famous stage magician of the twentieth century, as witnessed by the fact that his name is familiar to my generation although he died almost a century ago. If Houdini were to suddenly reappear in front of me right now -- in the flesh, I mean, and not merely on YouTube -- how would I explain to him that the way in which all of this is taking place? To someone who has been dead for a century, the…… [Read More]
In the text, Blair asserts that rhetoric and argument have been conventionally linked to the verbal. In turn, he purposes to consider whether visuals can be arguments. An argument in this context encompasses the reasons for accepting a particular point of view. He elucidates the erudition that indicates that arguments are not just verbal in the same ways to the arguments made by Birdsell and Groarke. Despite this, Blair goes on to proclaim that even though there can be purely visual arguments, a great deal of communications that contend to be visual arguments are amalgamations of the visual and the verbal. Owing to this, Blair goes on to examine verbal and visual arguments. He labels the grouping of these two arguments as visual. On the other hand, he labels verbal to be stringently verbal. Bearing this in mind, he delineates that a visual/verbal is an argument contrasted with…… [Read More]
Yes, I agree that sometimes technology and visual aids become more distraction than the presentation itself. One of the popular examples in which the use of visual aids and technology is distraction is where the main concerns of the speaker is not to explain or convince the audience rather state simple facts -- for example, everyone knows that drinking or smoking is harmful for the people, or pollution leads to many diseases in the living bodies. In both of these cases, everyone knows the facts and their effects; therefore, using technology and visual aids is unlikely to add any thing new the presentation. On the contrary, the visual aids are likely to be distraction.
If the speaker wants to make the use of visual aid, the following steps can be taken: first, the speaker can provide the hands-out of the write-up to the audience, since the speaker is…… [Read More]
On some level, art is communication. The artist creates a visual element that conveys complex ideas, emotions, and concepts. Therefore, learning good communication skills is essential for an artist. Communication also requires creativity. Negotiating difficult deals and addressing conflict depend on creative problem solving skills.
Animators are called upon even more to be solid communicators because of the nature of their job. An animator renders stories into visual form. Storytelling is a form of communication. An animator who can communicate well is one who can convey the story arcs and dialog in ways that are memorable and meaningful to the audience. On a more practical level, animators work with people as a matter of course throughout their job. hereas a painter could be holed up in a studio for six months out of the year, never talking to anyone, an animator will rarely live an isolated lifestyle.

Effective written communication is necessary in a number of different situations. In the first section of this paper, I discuss my areas of personal weakness in written communication. Those areas include improving my tone and voice, understanding my audience's point-of-view, and improving my self-confidence. Effective persuasive communication depends on rhetorical strategies like pathos, ethos, and logos. In the second section of this paper, I suggest how to solve a specific problem using effective written communication.
Whether dealing with a casual conversation with a friend about the need for sidewalks to improve community safety, an email to a boss proposing a new safety procedures, or an academic persuasive essay about the community's need for a free spay/neuter program, I will need to know how to communicate effectively. Effective written communication depends on choosing the most effective tone, voice, and style for each situation. One of the three aspects of my…… [Read More]
The Application of Five Communication Theories
There are countless communication theories, with each one looking at a different aspect of communication or looking at communication in a new way. The number of theories that exist raises the question of how they can be used to understand communication. The answer is that every communication is complicated, with one single theory not being enough to understand every communication completely. For this reason, various theories can be applied to various situations, with each one helping us to understand something about the communication. To consider how real situations can be analyzed, five communication theories will be described. Each one will then be applied to a real situation to show how the theory helps create understanding of the communication events and processes that make up human life.

Communication & News Framing - Case Study of the U.S. & China Standoff of 2001
An event is a fact. It happens. People witness it. People talk about it. People report it. In today's world, the even t may be recorded for posterity in a variety of ways. It may be capture on videotape. It may be captured in the voice recordings of an airplane's "black box." It may be tracked line by line through a printed transcript that contains the exact words of the participants. ecorded. Exact. Fact. We associate these words with what we read in newspapers, hear on the radio, or see on television. We assume that the news, as it is reported, is wholly truthful and accurate, but is it? Is the reportage of real-world events by the "unbiased" media free from the filters through which we all observe and analyze the world around us? Children…… [Read More]
isual 1: The message of the visual is clear, since it provides clearly drawn pictures of each food group, a written description close to each drawing, and a clear key to describe the fat and sugar symbols. Each written legend also states clearly how many servings of each group per day is recommended. The color is relatively clear, although the symbols for fats and sugars could have been more clearly distinguished in terms of both color and form. There does not seem to be an overabundance of either chartjunk or misleading information.
isual 2: The updated food pyramid does not seem as clear as the former one, since it is highly symbolic. The symbol is described by means of a color chart, but it appears that elaborate explanations are required to clarify the chart for users. Furthermore, the pyramid itself contains no clear specification on the food portions or…… [Read More]
Visual aids, including PowerPoint presentations, are the most powerful way to convey information. My message is related to helping employees with robust training materials. With the slide show presentation on PowerPoint, the employees have multimedia materials they can use for learning. For example, this presentation can teach employees how to incorporate PowerPoint presentations in their work. Using PowerPoint to teach PowerPoint is an ideal training program. Audio and video dimensions help all employees master the material. Moreover, the employees can take home the PowerPoint slides for reinforcement. The method of using PowerPoint is itself important because all workers need to create or interact with PowerPoint presentations at some point in their career.
However, not all PowerPoint presentations are equal. Some make their audiences fall asleep, while others convey information in ways that are both entertaining and informative. The intended audience for the presentation is management. With this target audience in…… [Read More]

I would tell Johann that we are doing all we can to ensure Billy's hygiene and that if his body odor continued to bother Johann that we can move him to another room or ward in the hospital.
18. There seems to be a language and cultural barrier that's blocking effective communication occurring between these two gentlemen. Considering they are both your clients, what strategies would you put in place to improve this situation?
The best way to remedy the situation would be to introduce the two patients to each other. A handshake, some eye contact, and small personal interactions can go a long way toward eliminating prejudices and stereotypes…… [Read More]
In a study entitled Lost on the Web: Does Web Distribution Stimulate or Depress Television Viewing?, it was found out that Web distribution of TV programs positively influenced the overall viewing of TV network programming (Waldfogel, 2007). A joint poll by America Online and the Associated Press reports that 80% of their respondents say that their TV viewing habits remain unchanged despite having consumed online videos. It can be inferred, therefore, that Web distribution of network material can actually become a form of free advertising.
ESACH QUESTIONS and HYPOTHESES
The review of the literature and the study framework lead to the following research questions: Does downloading or online viewing of shows play a role in the TV viewing habits of University students? What are the motivations that drive these students who prefer online downloading and viewing over watching shows aired in cable TV?
It is likewise the review of the…… [Read More]
Communication and Leadership
hat makes a great leader? How is a great leader made? There is no single answer to that question because there are as many different kinds of great leaders as there are problems in society that need to be overcome. hile certainly it is true that many important and effective leaders share a number of the same qualities, it is also imperative to remember that each leader has different challenges that face him or her because of the particular historical circumstances that call that person to be a leader.
This research proposal maps out a plan to study the ways in which African-Americans become leaders in the United States today, looking at the struggles that they have to overcome in terms of the general level of background racism that still exists in this nation. But this is certainly not a research project designed to cast pity on…… [Read More]
The educational needs created by a visual impairment are unique. Vision loss can result in delayed concept development and critically influence social, emotional, academic, and vocational development. These students must garner knowledge through alternative mediums using their other senses. Because of this students with visual impairments often require individualized instruction since group instruction for learning specialized skills may not be provided in a meaningful manner. These students require specialized skills as well as specialized books, materials and equipment for learning through alternate modes and are limited in acquiring information through incidental learning since they are often unaware of subtle activities in their environment. Curriculum areas that require unique strategies or adaptations for students with visual impairments include concept development, academic functioning, communication skills, sensory/motor skills, social/emotional skills, orientation and mobility, daily living skills, and career/vocational skills (AFB, 2011).
To ensure an appropriate education, families and staff with special training…… [Read More]
Communication and Super-Saturation of the Modern Sense of Self
"How does the design of information structure the information process? And how, on the other side of the equation, does the nature of audience engagement structure its reception?"
Communication by its very nature is a dialogue. One person or medium speaks. Another individual or an audience of individuals receives the word or the message being conveyed. As with any performance, particularly a live performance, the method of transmission of the message conveyed invariably affects the message itself.
This is demonstrated in its most raw form during an improvised performance piece such as that of a stand-up comic. The comic realizes that he or she is not getting a favorable reception from the audience.
They are yawning, or signaling to the waiter that they would like some new drinks. The comic takes stock of this information, realizing that he or she is…… [Read More]
The salary ranges from $80,000 to $110,000 (Kalbach 45).
Rank advancement relates to the level of experience of the employee and the amount of years of services within the context of the business entity. For individuals or experts to command rank advancement within this field, they must develop large pool of experience and qualification to be able to serve in the higher ranks. The employee must also serve within the company for certain duration in order to merit promotion. This type of rank advancement or promotion depends on the performance and personal or character traits (honesty, loyalty, and obedience) of the employee. The company must be convinced on the performance levels of the user experience designer to guarantee or facilitate promotion to higher ranks with better remuneration or wages.

powerful connection between visuals and words in storytelling. Before doing the research to write this essay, it never occurred to me place words in a hierarchy above images, so I confess to some surprise at the debate over which should be considered more important. I began my research with the premise that the two are equal; different yes, but equal certainly. And nothing that I discovered in my survey of literature on the subject has changed my mind.
The saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" sums up the debate over the relative importance of images vs. words. This statement was clearly made by someone who believes in the primacy of images. Based on my research, however, it would seem that proponents of the position that images are more important to communication than words appear to be in the minority.
There is no question that Sandra Martin believes that…… [Read More]
In general, communication refers to the sharing of ideas by transmitting those ideas from at least one individual to at least one other individual. Communication can involve several different mediums: it includes verbal transmission of ideas, visual transmission of ideas, and it can involve both deliberate and unintentional or even unconscious transmission of ideas. Communication is not necessarily limited to same species either: individuals from different species often communicate using postures, mannerisms, and sounds that are universally associated with particular concepts, such as aggression and dominance or submission and fear, among many others.
What is the purpose of communication?
Communication has many different purposes. Most generally, it is intended to allow another individual to understand the state of mind of another individual. That state of mind may include myriad different ideas such as aggression, non-aggression, interest, non-interest, possessiveness over resources, and even deception, such as in the case of…… [Read More]
In this image a large group of Pakistani people are in a mob/protest that is clearly against the United States, most likely relating to the U.S.'s use of Pakistan in conducting its war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. This is known because at the center of the group is a large, upside down American flag being burned and the surrounding individuals cheering in support.
Within this crowd are numerous cameras and video recorders capturing the flag burning, showing that the act is being done not for the individuals at the event but for the effect it will have on the individuals watching its portrayal through video, photos and news. If this image was not broadcast, then it would have a limited effect as its message would be only conveyed to those who already support the group's cause. However, by taping it and broadcasting it, it can be viewed by a…… [Read More]
In a news story presented by the online version of NBC news, a major American network, an article about #BlackLivesMatter includes photographic imagery of a large social protest that took place in 2013. The protest followed in the wake of George Zimmerman being found not guilty on charges of second-degree murder of an unarmed black man—an event that showcased the extent to which even the law fails to protect the lives of innocent people of color. In one photographic image used in this news story, the photographer captures a significant moment in the protest in which five individuals together hold up a large banner that has written on it nothing but the hastag and name of the organization #BlackLivesMatter. The background of the banner is black and white stripes, which is symbolic and reflects the interracial harmony intended by both the organization and the photographer who captured the image. This…… [Read More]
media equation theory and its applications.

There were six sources used to complete this paper. The paper is in MLA format.
MEDIA THEORY IN PRACTICE
The technological explosion of the last three decades has taken us to places we never dreamed before were possible. ith each passing year, the technology becomes more linked to human thought and emotions than ever before. Today, there are studies being conducted worldwide to understand the phenomena of people treating their media tools in the same manner that their human interactions are treated. For several years, the habits and protocol of people who work with these questions have been narrowly defined by the rigid demands of research…… [Read More]

Zelizer and food culture
According to B. Zelizer's analysis of the book ealms of memory: "We are enlightened by the curious notion that one's food an indicator of one's level of civilization" (Zelizer 1999: 202-203). In discussing the symbolic language of France, food plays an important role in the author's analysis. Food symbolizes collective aspects of the culture as well as personal aspects of nutrition. This can be seen in every nation. Cultural constructions affect personal tastes, and quite often what food symbolizes is equally important as how the food tastes. The visual of a steak or piece of meat has symbolic significance in America beyond providing information about what is available at a supermarket or restaurant.
ed meat has come to symbolize indulgence and decadence in the eyes of many people. This is partially because it is…… [Read More]
Moreover, we conducted a non-invasive approach in which we emphasized that the firm already had the rudiments of data governance in place, and simply needed assistance in formalizing the management of the accountability of data since its principle need was providing a transparent method of data lineage.
This communications process of meeting regularly with upper level management proved to be successful in the long run, because we were able to address their concerns as soon as they arose, as well as keep them updated regarding our projects. Despite our efforts to plan as conscientiously for this project as we could, however, my team and I still encountered an instance or two of feature creep, "unforeseen requests for additions and changes that are outside the project scope" (Gube, 2008). According to the circumstances, these instances were actually quite understandable, as one of the top executives wanted to make a last-minute switch…… [Read More]
Obviously, those situations include survivors of ditches and crashes, but equally important is the degree to which cell phones offer solutions to flight emergencies.
Salven acknowledges that cell phone use of this nature is specifically prohibited by FCC restrictions but relates the views of an FCC spokesman who relates that.".. The FCC isn't aware of any enforcement action having been taken against pilots using cell phones in emergency situations during the past 30 years." Salven describes situations such as cell phone communications between pilot and controllers necessitated by emergency conservation (i.e. shutdown) of electrical power caused by acute ammeter discharge in flight.

The other components of emergency communications relate to the relative capability of equipment to prevent emergencies (particularly on the ground), various factors capable of reducing the efficiency of pilot responses to emergencies, and the inherent ambiguity and even apparent contradictions in…… [Read More]

Visual Media and Collective Memory
How visual media shape collective memory
Visual media: Shaping collective memory
According to Barbie Zelizer's review of the book ealms of memory, the simple question: "What does it mean to be French" is the focus of all three volumes of the massive cultural history of the nation (Zelizer 1999: 201). The artifacts chronicled by the author of the book are simple, yet complex enough to sustain the reader's attention. The work Zelizer is reviewing is divided into three sections: conflicts and divisions, traditions, and symbols. Certain visual themes, including food and competitive bicycling, run throughout all three works, given the significance they have in French culture. Within America, other visual themes in history have similar symbolic significance and embody all three aspects of visual history -- conflicts, traditions, and symbols. This can be seen in the treatment of the Vietnam War in the media.

The procedure of communication involves a sender transmitting data in a fitting structure to guarantee the message is comprehended by the recipient. The sender should likewise consider potential "noise" or limitations to the transmitted communication. Compelling communication relies on upon:
clearly characterizing the goal of the message
taking record of the requirements of the recipient
selecting the best medium and strategy for communication
being mindful of how "noise" can contort the message
Ensuring feedback, to assure comprehension of the message (Business Case Studies, 2016).

Although interpersonal and group level communications reside at a lower level than organizational communication, they are major forms of communication in organizations and are prominently addressed in the organizational communication literature. Recently, as organizations became more communication-based, greater attention was directed at improving the interpersonal communication skills of all organizational members. Historically, informal communication was primarily seen as a potential block to effective organizational performance. This is no longer the case is modern times, as on-going, dynamic, and informal communication has become more important to ensuring the effective conduct of work
It is also widely accepted that top managers should communicate directly with immediate supervisors and that immediate supervisors should communicate with their direct reports. In regard to issues of importance, top managers should then follow-up by communicating with employees directly. The Communication Accommodation Theory supports this rationale.

Individuals involved in my life during my work from 2003 until the present at Catholic Family Services include:
My learning experiences in Oral Communication which began with my formal employment in 1997 and continue even today can be considered comparable to lessons taught in a classroom, albeit, as at times I had to be my own teacher. I contend that the following things I have learned, in addition, to those previously pointed out (and even more) stem from the thought I frequently tell clients I work with: "What you learn today will make a BIG difference in your life." I have also learned what Parvis (Ibid.) stresses: "One of the best tools in mastering communication is listening." I listen as listening, I contend, constitutes a vital component of oral communication in human services. In interviewing, oral communication can be used to convey what is needed to help…… [Read More]

Public elations Plan
Marketing experts always claim that a well planned public relations campaign is often more effective as compared to advertising. Public relations is in most cases confused with merchandising, advertising, promotion or other buzz words that are used in marketing communication. Public relations involve doing something newsworthy which one wants to communicate and telling the audience what you have done. Most common public relation vehicles include briefs, news release and so on. This paper will look at developing public relations plan. It will highlight on mix of media that can be used in the implementation of a public relations campaign and a detailed explanation of the objectives for each of these media forms.it will also look at how an organization can take advantage of community relations in order to generate positive publicity.

The type of communication involved face-to-face, writing letters then sending to people, using telegrams which was the quickest means of communication, and use of telephones, although telephones were invented some years back. Today, the world has become computerized and there are new technologies that most firms have acquired to ease communication as well as replace labor. The computer mediated communications (CMC) that emerged involved the use of e-mail, chat rooms, and Usenet groups. In summary, this paper gives a narrative regarding the issue of Computer Mediated Communication as well as, analyzing the linguistic and visual features of my topic while explaining how they affect communication.

In my e-mail and text communications with friends and family, emoticons are actually infrequent. I receive them more than I use them myself. There are a few different ways to analyze this. Emoticons are intended as the "graphical representations of facial expressions" when using technology-mediated modes of communication (Walther & D'Addario, 2001). They act, therefore, as a substitute for non-verbal communication in face-to-face speech. It has been found that emoticons are generally outweighed by the verbal component of the communication. Further research has showed that the most important communicative value of emoticons are as a means of communication not emotions, but context. Emoticons tell the message recipient how the message is to be received (Skovholt, Gronning & Kankaanranta, 2014).
I have found that the latter tends to be true. Emoticons are used by myself in outbound communications mainly in situations where there may be interpretation issues with the text.…… [Read More]

Communication Message Analysis
The success of companies is influenced by several factors. Such a factor is represented by the communication strategy that companies develop. The communication message that companies send to their targeted customer segments can significantly influence the number of customers they attract.
Coca Cola is one of the most well-known companies on international levels. Its success can be attributed to the communication message that the company has developed. In this case, it is important to analyze the blog of the company. This communication material was selected because of the increasing importance that characterizes the Internet in individuals' opinion. The number of Internet users is increasing. Companies try to connect with their customers through websites and online social networks. This is because this allows them to…… [Read More]

Assessing integrated business communication today
Ultimately, business is about serving customers, and customers will not understand the value one's business can give them without effective communication. However, the need for effective communication is not limited to people who buy an organization's goods and services. The ability to frame a cohesive organizational message begins with strong, effective workplace relationships between employees and employers and then spills out into the other facets of the workplace.
Given the profound shifts that have occurred in workplace communication, it is necessary even for well-functioning organizations to review their standard operating procedures. Workers, thanks to the availability of online technology, are often spaced out farther from one another than ever before yet are also far more constantly connected: the…… [Read More]
Visual Impairment on the Family
The incidence of visual impairment among young and old people alike is on the rise, and is expected to increase in the future. The purpose of the paper is to provide an overview of the problems that typically confront families when one or more of their family members has a visual impairment. The background of the problem is followed by a discussion of how visual impairments affect the individual child, followed by an analysis of how such conditions affect other family members. A summary of the research is provided in the conclusion.
Physical impairments can assume a variety of forms, such as a loss of limbs or a paralysis due to accident or disease. When one family member becomes disabled in one fashion or another, it will naturally have profound consequences for other family members, but it is important to remember that every family is…… [Read More]
A good example of some of the different texts that were utilized to insight anger and violence can be seen with one that was sent to number Anglo Saxons in the commonwealth. Where, it would encourage all youth in Western Australia to show up at Cronuella each, in an effort to protect the beach and women. This is significant, because it shows how the use of heated SMS messages could help to enrage both groups. As this form of written communication would increase the overall amounts of rage that the two side were feeling towards each other.
Visual languages were used to help increase the overall negative opinions that many Australians would feel towards the Arabs. Where, the women and men would dress differently in public (with many women covering themselves). This is problematic, because it would cause a number of groups in society to view Arabs as untrustworthy, based…… [Read More]
This RIS includes Toshiba digital desktop telephones, plus 24 SpectraLink wireless telephones; these wireless phones were programmed to extend the features and capabilities of the users' desktop telephones to anywhere they roam at the 22-bed hospital; however, other wireless technologies such as cellular, could not be used due to the interference with sensitive medical equipment (Just the right prescription 24). The hospital's chief operating officer, Darryl Thornton, reported, "Being able to be mobile, yet still receive all our telephone calls, has greatly improved our efficiency and productivity. Toshiba's SpectraLink solution was the only one we found that would extend our desktop telephones to the palms of our hands" (Just the right prescription 24). The RIS also accommodated the needs of the hospital's remote users: "The system is so flexible that we were able to connect our remote users and still have it look like they are located at our corporate…… [Read More]

History Of Communication Timeline
TIMELINE: HITORY OF COMMUNICATION
(with special reference to the development of the motorcycle)
First paleolithing "petroglyphs" and written symbols. This is important in the history of communication because it marks the first time humans left a recorded form of communication. Also, these written symbols became the ultimate source of later alphabets.
Cave paintings at Lascaux show early representational art. This is important in the history of communication because the caves depict over 2000 figures, including abstract symbols. More recent research suggests these may record astronomical information.
OURCE: Wikipedia, "Lascaux."
First surviving umerian pictograms demonstrate a primitive form of record keeping. This is important in the history of communication because pictograms, together with ideograms, represent a primitive form of writing, in which a symbol either means what it looks like, or represents a single idea.

This is an important historical communication, noted seventy years after Vespucci's discovery. Columbus indeed landed in the est Indies (San Salvador in the Bahamas), and on Gutierrez' map the cartographer wrote: "This fourth part of the world remained unknown to all geographers until the year 1497, at which time it was discovered by Americus Vespusius serving the King of Castile, whereupon it also obtained a name from the discoverer."
Hieronymus Cock, a Flemish artist, engraved the map in a collaborative effort with Gutierrez, Hebert explains; in fact Cock is believed to be one of the "most important engravers and printmakers in Europe in the sixteenth century."
Maps not only communicated important information - and still do - but, according to an article in the journal Americas, they are witnesses. Authors J.B. Harley and D. oodward write that maps "...may be called the light or eye of history" (the quote they…… [Read More]
Embedded Communication in Advertising
"There is no evidence that advertising can get people to do things contrary to their self-interest." -- JI Fowles, in Advertising's Fifteen asic Appeals
"Good advertising does not just circulate information. It penetrates the public mind with desires and belief." -- Leo urnett, Advertising Executive and Creator of the Marlboro Man
"The ability to attract new smokers and develop them into a young adult franchise is key to brand development." 1999 Philip Morris report
When the preceding collection of opinions regarding the influence of modern advertising are considered in conjunction with the iconic advertising image shown above, it becomes quite clear that, much like advertising itself, forming an informed position on this ubiquitous aspect of modern marketing is simply a matter of perception and perspective (elch 120). Corporate conglomerates and other private enterprises ascribe tremendous value to the persuasive power of advertising, bombarding the general public…… [Read More]
Electronic communication has increased the availability and speed at which financial information is made public. Announcements and stock prices are made available in real time. Aggregated and historical information is widely available on information aggregator sites like Yahoo Finance. Annual reports are publicly available, and securities regulators insist that they be made publicly available.
The increased availability of financial information about companies serves to improve both the transparency and liquidity of financial markets. Investors of all types and abilities now have access to the information that they need to make information decisions. That all companies must produce consistent financial statements according to GAAP also helps with the transparency of financial information. ith easy access to this information, investors can become more educated and more confident. Ultimately, this improves investor confidence in the system and liquidity in the market, improving the market's function.
Because publishing this material improves the…… [Read More]

Work to the completed
The work so far completed represents the backbone of the future report and it is as such crucial. Nevertheless, it is insufficient and several steps still have to be completed. The first is represented by a higher degree of centralization of all important information collected throughout the process of researching the secondary sources of information. This process is necessary as it offers the first valuable insights into the opportunities and other features of the Malaysian market, but also because it raises the questions for the research to be completed from the primary sources. Specifically, the review of the secondary sources informs the researcher on what areas to focus upon while conducting the primary research. These items could change…… [Read More]
Corporate communications involves not just the message, but the idea that communications are managed, and are connected to corporate objectives (Cornelissen, 2004). Therefore, when communication possibilities were limited, corporate options were limited, and one did not see communications management perspectives that advocated the type of intimate connection between communications and corporate strategy that one sees in a modern context (Cornelissen, 2004). What this makes clear is that CC is not simply, or even primarily, about communications; it is an overall corporate strategy that helps define how a corporation interacts with the world.
The emphasis on communication is very different from how corporations were traditionally, historically structured. Traditionally, strategic planning occurred at the top of the corporate structure, management was considered a mid-level activity, and operational control was the function of first-level management, and this corporate strategy was used in most workplaces (Oliver, 1997). However, as institutional hierarchies were challenged and…… [Read More]
Measurements were obtained both in the presence of and the absence of whale watching boats. It was observed that a period of intense boating activity caused the killer whales to adjust their call duration levels to compensate for the background noise. This clearly indicates that anthropogenic noise levels directly interfere with the routine life of the killer whales, which are dependent on vocal communication for successful hunting and survival. [Andrew et.al. 2004]
It is well-known that anthropogenic sounds can even have fatal consequences as evidenced by the recent mass strandings of beaked whales that coincided with the mid frequency sonar exercises by the navy. A recent research by (Holt et.al, 2009) focused on the effects of anthropogenic sounds on the vocal behavior of killer whales. The resident killer whales of the waters of the Puget Sound, Seattle, were the subjects of this study. The southern resident killer whales in three…… [Read More]
My attitude has changed resulting from the information I learned about business communications quite dramatically. Business communication in my opinion was always something that was important to people working as managers or administrators, but I never fully understood how critical business communication is to all people regardless of the field they work in. The components of business communication most important to my field include learning how to translate one's thoughts into oral and written communication in multiple forms.
Nurses have to document all interactions, whether with patients or with other healthcare professional (Riley, 2000). hile many are provided with charts they can use to fill in information, it is also important for nurses to know how to create strong narratives and oral presentations when providing information to others. Multicultural communication is essential in nursing today because of the diversity present among the patients treated and the doctors, administrators and other…… [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]
The research question examined in this study poses the following question: "How does one person's behavior affect another person's behavior?" Specifically, this study is intended to assess the various mechanisms through which people communicate, both verbally and non-verbally. The study is intended to examine the different methods in which males vs. females communicate, and explore whether a difference in gender correlates with a different approach to communicate. Also examined is whether or not males or females are likely to be influenced by each others communication cues, and whether one gender is more influenced by certain settings/cues than the other.
Non-participant observation was the methodology selected for this study. Specifically, in order to best assess and observe gender relationships, our group decided to split the observations between two social settings: bars where people might "hang out" casually and the student center. Four members of our group went to Pete's…… [Read More]
