So I have been pretty silent on here lately because I am not really sure what to say… First of all I’m still cancer free! And still dealing with the big can of worms we call my intestines that were damaged while we kicked cancers ass. The pain is the same, constant, nagging, unrelenting, stabbing, tiring, annoying, at times unable to stand up straight, cough or breathe deep without wanting to scream or slam my hand on a counter and yell about how unfair this is, I am so done with it. My digestion is so, so. On a good day I can eat and actually keep the food in without wanting to just cry. On a bad day, it seems like the minute I get food in my intestines they scream EVACUATE! I tend to drink all my food on days I work so I don’t have to deal with it. . After all of this is done with my gut I am never having a milk shake again in my life!
I am so happy and grateful to be cancer free that it seems almost petty to be complaining about pain, about my gut, about being down right angry & pissed & scared all at once.
They say there are 5 stages of grief people go through…
1. Denial & isolation
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression and
5. Acceptance

These 5 stages don’t necessarily go in any order. I know I have totally hit all of these stages over the last two years dealing with cancer and surgery and recovery and now lately I just feel like I am stuck, stuck in the stupid anger stage. Angry I had cancer, angry every time I look at my hand or feel the pain, angry when I get dressed and see my huge abdominal scar, and so angry when I think of May 7th, the day of my next big dye study and meeting with the surgeons. Angry that I can finally sit up right without my abdominal muscles hurting after too long, and now they are going to get cut open again. Angry my scar on my stomach is going to be cut open for a 5th time. Angry I…...

Angry Young Woman

...As a young woman, I spent a lot of time being angry. It seemed that people often went out of their way to cross me and block my path. This was one of those times, thought I don't remember which car it was. One autumn afternoon, I took my daughter to the fair after school. We were one of the first people there in the afternoon, since I did not want to wait until dark to keep her out late. She was about six or seven at the time, and her dad did not enjoy riding the rides that I liked—the fast rides that depend on angular motion for their thrill. Since she was with me, I thought she would be safe enough, and I could watch her ride the kiddie rides and have a few moments to myself. I did get a scare when we rode the Viking ship, a ride that rocks back and forth like a giant swing. She was barely tall enough, but she begged to ride it because it looked like a dragon. Since I was with her, they let her ride. She was excited and had a wonderful time. On the other hand, I was terrified. She would float up out of the seat every time we rose to the top of the swing, and I held on to her for dear life. I've never had the thought of falling out of or off a ride, other than a Ferris wheel, which I hate, but I just knew she would sail right out of the ship and fall to her death. Needless to say, I was shaken when we got off the ride, ready to go home. When we got back to the car, a lot more people were at the fair, and I was blocked in on all sides. I was not amused. One thing I...

Twelve Angry Men

... background as evidence for his being “trash.” 5th Juror is angered by this, having grown up in a slum himself. 8th Juror is now made to stand and defend his “not guilty” vote for the boy. He states that he’s not sure whether or not the boy did it, but he was unsatisfied with the job of the defense council, and he was unsure of the two eyewitnesses. This leads into a discussion about the knife. 4th Juror explains that, on the night of the murder, the boy bought a uniquely carved switchblade knife identical to the one used in the murder. The boy claims that he lost it that night, before coming home to find his father dead. 4th Juror presents the death weapon, the “only one of its kind;” 8th Juror surprises the others by presenting an identical knife he had purchased in a pawn shop two blocks from where the boy lived a few nights prior, shattering the claim that the knife was unique and identifiable. An argument breaks out among the jurors as to the new doubt; most are just upset that they’re still arguing and want to just declare him guilty and go home. 8th Juror makes a proposition that the other eleven of them could vote, and if all of them voted “not guilty,” he would not stand alone and would go along with their guilty verdict. They agree to this and vote by secret ballot. The vote is 10 “guilty” votes and 1 “not guilty” vote, and so the deliberation continues. --- Analysis of Act One (Part 1) --- Twelve Angry Men is in many ways a love letter to the American legal......

12 Angry Men

...Positive Leadership and Group Practices             Beyond the example of a cooperative community that was established among the jurors in 12 Angry Men, we can draw from the film examples of how leadership can minimize rivalries, constructively integrate opposing views, and contribute to developing effective coalitions.  The first positive step that Fonda’s character took toward constructively integrating opposing views was his overall approach to the situation.  The opposing views of the jurors were utilized in order to understand differing perspectives.  The underlying theme that seemed to be presented in the film was that the addition of multiple perspectives would provide different points of view that would eventually lead to the best solution. In order to minimize rivalries and integrate opposing views, it is important to view diversity as an opportunity as opposed to a threat to progress.  The presence of varying perspectives, if handled effectively, provides the benefit of greater understanding.  Kouzes and Posner (2003) further this idea: “diversity is not simply good because it implies breadth of tolerance and empathy but because it will help us to be creative and innovative” (p. 95).  Creative and innovative members of a community are more likely to consider a more wide range of ideas in an effort to develop the most effective solution that will be accepted by the widest range of individuals. Unfortunately, the incorporation of diversity can be wrought with...

12 Angry Men Review

...The movie 12 angry men is based in a juror room ready to convict a boy of murder. The film displays conflict and ways to negotiate to turn people or see the other side of the picture. Goes along with real life situations where there are people that hold certain biases and this movie displays them well. One of the biases is confirmation bias, which restricts new information. This Bias is seem early in the beginning of the film. For example when Mr. Fonda introduced the notion of the murder knife not being as rare as the prosecutor showed. One of the juror's rejected the new information because of the boy's background, and the area he lived. The other juror had relationship problems with his son so he rejected any new data that made the convicted boy seem innocent. Both these jurors hold on to their belief even when relevant data emerged to challenge their view, the defense mechanism that arose was anger towards the others. The jurors also display the bias of small data, which they rely on small amount of information to make a decision. Which throughout the film, Mr. Fonda makes each of them realize that there is more to the other side of the story. And makes it relatively available. For example, if one reviews the testimony information, one realizes that its accuracy is significantly lowered. Like the testimony of the woman who herd and saw the boy stab his father, when Fonda reenact the scene there was large holes that could be turned in favor of the boy. Although, Fonda...

...“12 Angry Men” Movie Analysis Throughout the movie “12 Angry Men”, different examples of influence techniques were portrayed through the various interactions and discussions among the jurors. As in many other cases in our daily lives, in this movie it was fascinating to see how powerful and influential one can be depending on the strategy one decides to implement, one’s attitude towards others, and the perception that others have of oneself. Throughout this analysis, I intend to explain and showcase with examples the many different techniques of influence that affect the day to day relations one could have with others. At the beginning of the movie all the jurors except for Juror 8 were ready to sentence the accused young man to death. Through the use of the inspiration influence technique, Juror 8 was able to inspire all the other man to reevaluate their decision by emphasizing the holes in the evidence and by reminding them that sentencing someone to death is a big responsibility. Juror 8, whose name was Davis, argued that a decision of this nature should not take only five minutes, especially when there was reasonable doubt. He was unsure if the young man was innocent or guilty, but one thing he was sure of was that all the jurors should discuss the matter elaborately through a meaningful exchange of ideas. Another example of the use of the inspirational influence technique in the movie was portrayed by Juror 5’s sharing of his background story. Some of the......

Abraham Lincoln “The virtue of justice consists in moderation, as regulated by wisdom”. Aristotle ”Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck”. Orson Welles Justice = mid-12c., "the exercise of authority in vindication of right by assigning reward or punishment;" also "quality of being fair and just," from Old French justice "justice, legal rights, jurisdiction" (11c.), from Latin iustitia "righteousness, equity," from iustus "upright, just" . The Old French word had widespread senses, including "uprightness, equity, vindication of right, court of justice, judge." The word began to be used in English c.1200 as a title for a judicial officer. Meaning "right order, equity" is late 14c. Justice of the peace first attested early 14c. In the Mercian hymns, Latin iustitia is glossed by Old English rehtwisnisse. To do justice to (someone or something) "render fully and fairly showing due appreciation" is from 1670s.

Tweleve Angry Men

...Two Good Guys To Kill A Mockingbird and Twelve Angry Men have the similar characters, Atticus and Juror 8. They both are middle-aged men. They are good at talking. They did something unpopular. But as we know Juror 8 didn’t know this boy before. He could just let it go, But he didn’t. Then he won the case. Atticus is a lawyer. It’s his job to fight for people who need help. Although Atticus from To Kill A Mockingbird and Juror 8 from Twelve Angry Men are similar in that they both disagree with most people’s ideas and they are in a trial, the outcome of the trials were different. Atticus he loved his family. His neighbors liked him before he got Tom’s case, however, when he get that case his neighbor didn’t like him anymore. But as he said,”It’ll never come back”(Lee168). It’s show us how good that man is. It’s hard to see someone help a black man without prejudice in 1960 in the South. Juror 8 is kind of superman. We don’t know anything about him. We had enough sense of justice to help a kid he didn’t know. As he said,”No jury can declare a man guilty unless it’s sure”(Rose66). He is no shortcoming. He is perfect. Both Atticus and Juror 8 are good men. But I think Juror 8 is clever than Atticus, because they didn’t like he at first but they respected him at the end of story. He won respect on his own. Atticus had respect before, but he lost it. They both are good men. But Juror 8 is a perfect man. Atticus is a normal person. I can’t say who I like better, but......

Angry Men

... can be explained by: Cause (w/o reason): as in the physical sciences. But even Hume rejected that cause and effect exist (there is only sequences of events). Reasons for acting (chain of actions) Motivation and motivation-for or motivation-to Intention (to do something) (it links a self’s intention to an action). Conventionally, desire is not considered rational (therefore, should not justify and action); nor is it considered a cause. Thus, desire is left out of the notion of reason, motivation, and intention. Power to act. Ricoeur proposes a third situation (between cause and rational thinking) which involves desire in a way that redefines both pure rationalization and pure (physical) energy. This new way of looking as action brings ascription to consider the notion of “power to act.” Agency. Since Power to act refers to “agency” which is in the agent (the agent possesses it, it belongs to the agent) you; then all explanations (attributions or ascriptions) must incorporate/move from the “what and why” to the who, because agency is part of an agent. HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: 1. Watch Twelve Angry Men (with Henry Fonda) on YouTube. (It’s about a 2 hour movie). 2. Discuss in what way the movie reflects the conventional approach to analyzing action (as in organizational behavior). Use the theories of motivation in Chapter 6 and 7 as a reference, along with Chapters 1-5. 3. Discuss in what way the movie reflects the hermeneutic approach to...

Angry Couple

...Running head: ANGRY COUPLE 1 Anita Hardon University of Phoenix BSHS/385 February 5, 2015 Professor Rebecca Rabe ANGRY COUPLE 2 The “Angry Couple” video depicts a therapeutic session concerning an angry couple who appears to be having difficulty listening to the concerns each have with the other, their relationship and with their therapist. Before the therapy session begins, Dr. Susan Heitler arranges the room for symmetry and interaction. She then begins the therapeutic session by asking a few intake interview questions to better assist the couple in the counseling process. Examples of the three stages model of interviewing are illustrated below: Exploration Stage Dr. Susan Heitler asked both Richard and Judith to explain exactly what it is that they each want to accomplish during the session. In the taped interview, Dr Susan Heitler (Psychotherapy.net, 1995) asks Richard to turn to Judith and, “try talking and tell her why you are here.” She then asks Judith to ask Richard the same question before asking them both to clarify why they are here. Judith wants Richard to commit to having a family. However, Richard feels the time isn’t right. Dr. Susan Heitler explores the problems and how they’re feeling. She explores any previous treatments they may have had. Judith is upset and doesn’t feel her husband listens and as a result, Judith’s anger escalates. Clarification...

12 Angry Men

...CASE STUDY: 12 ANGRY MEN In the grand jury room, the jury takes a vote. Eleven jurors vote guilty, and one juror, juror eight renders a not guilty vote. Jurors three, seven, and twelve criticize him, but juror eight says that he does not know whether the man is guilty or not but that it is not easy for him to send a boy to his death without discussing it first. After some argument, they agree to discuss the facts of the case. Juror three reviews what they know. An old man who lives underneath the room where the murder took place heard loud noises just after midnight. He heard the son yell at the father that he was going to kill him. Then he heard a body falling and moments later, saw the boy running out of the house. Juror four says the boy's story is flimsy. He said that he was at the movies at the time of the murder, but no one remembers seeing him there. Also, a woman living opposite looked out of her window and saw the murder through the windows of a passing elevated train. During the trial, it was verified that this was possible. Further facts emerge: the father regularly beat his son, and the son had been arrested for car theft, mugging, and knife fighting. He had been sent to reform school for knifing someone. Juror Eight states that too many questions were not asked during the trial. He asks for the murder weapon to be......

Twelve Angry Men

...Twelve angry men essay ‘Twelve angry men’ shows that personal experience is the strongest factor influencing human decision-making processes.’ Discuss Twelve angry men by Reginald Rose is an intriguing play that explores the idea of personal experience affecting ones decision. Indeed Rose shows that decision-making is based on personal experiences. This is evident in the play when the 3rd Juror’s personal experience with his own son influences his decision and as a result he votes for guilty, the 9th Jurors old age becomes one of the greatest factors which influences his judgement of the boy ; when the 5th Jurors personal experience in a slum causes further doubts to form in his mind It is clear throughout the play that personal experience is a means of making the right decision. The 3rd Juror’s painful memory of his own son inspires his decision and as a result he votes for guilty. His son who left him when he had an argument similar to the one the defendant has with his father which causes him to assume that all teenagers are the same. His generalisation of teenagers as a whole and empathy dismisses the possibility that the boy may not be guilty. This is apparent when the 3rd juror says:” jeez, I can feel that knife goin’ in.”(Act 2 page 59) His anger for the boy grows as the play progresses and several times he makes reference to his own son. This is proven when he says:” when he was sixteen we had a battle…”(Act 1 page 12)Perhaps it is for this very reason that the......

Twelve Angry Men

...In the film Twelve Angry Men, I believe justice was served. Without juror number eight, however, the outcome most assuredly would have been different. The subtle force and confidence that he displayed allowed the narrow minds of the other eleven jurors to be broadened. From the beginning of the film, juror number eight displayed his interest in the case, not his personal engagements. His opening part by the window foreshadowed his deep concern for the defendant, an eighteen year-old Hispanic gentleman accused of stabbing his father in a fit of rage. While most of the jurors were ready to leave so as not to further interrupt their schedules, Henry Fonda was willing to give as much time as it would take to analyze this seemingly simple decision. The jurors took a vote and saw the ratio at eleven for guilty and only one for not guilty. When they repeatedly attacked his point of view, his starting defense was that the boy was innocent until proven guilty, not the opposite as the others had seen it. After Henry Fonda instilled doubt in the mind of another juror, the two worked together to weaken the barriers of hatred and prejudice that prevented them from seeing the truth. The jurors changed their minds one at a time until the ratio stood again at eleven to one, this time in favor of acquittal. At this point, the jurors who believed the defendant was not guilty worked together to prove to the one opposing man that justice would only be found if they returned a verdict of not...

12 Angry Men Case

...12 Angry Men is a gripping drama that depicts twelve American jurors confined to a jury room on a hot and humid summer day to decide the guilt or innocence of a defendant in a murder trial.1 Before sending out the twelve jurors to deliberate, the judge reminds them that their verdict must be unanimous and that if they hold “reasonable doubt” as to the guilt of the accused then their verdict must be “not guilty.” If, however, they find the defendant guilty then he will be sentenced to death. Eleven of the jurors, believing that the prosecution has presented an “open-and-shut”case,quickly vote for conviction.They believe that the young, poor Puerto Rican defendant, who has a criminal record and lives in the “slums,” killed his father with a switchblade knife. The sole initial dissenter is Juror 8, played in the film by Henry Fonda, who votes“not guilty” as the deliberations begin. As the film proceeds, he deconstructs the pros- ecution’s case, progressing from communicating a sense of vague uneasiness to articulating a precise refutation of the other jurors’ specific arguments. The Negotiation Environment To analyze the negotiation environment in 12 Angry Men, we adopt the methodology outlined by Rojot (1991), who wrote that a negotiation is structured by the relationship between the parties, the resources and con- straints within the environment, and the bargaining power. Rojot identified two significant dimensions for evaluating the...
