We have artists like Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, and Britney Spear. (Yea, don’t forget about the dollar sign in Ke$ha’s name.) It is sad how in today’s world, it is all about drinking and partying in songs. With Nicki Minaj singing about the rich and about being Barbie to literally Ke$ha’s song “Die Young”. Though one Artist still has the power to have the real existence of true POP. Ladies and Gentleman introducing! LADY GAGA! Yea right, everyone knows Lady Gaga by her crazy outfits, but they don’t really know what is behind the Burqa of Gaga’s. Lady Gaga by far is the only artist to bring in ART & POP in music itself. While Britney Spears sings about getting to work and about a perfume? Lady Gaga sings about the controversial of Burqas and Fashion around the globe. The Fame, The Fame Monster, Born This Way, and ATPOP has been by far the most influential albums of the decade. Even though people only over looks the charts on how much money the artist makes they lose the opportunity to see what the albums stands for. Bringing the competition of Katy Perry v.s Lady Gaga. Who did better? Who has the best 1st single? Which CD is better? This may seem like a Bias blog, but Lady Gaga made so much impact in many lives. For what she stands for feminism, the gays, etc. She has touched many lives with just her music. So you decide who you would applause for. Someone who swims in pink stomach medicine in Superbass or someone that has sent the message that everyone is Born this Way.

The Applause of Heaven

...The Applause of Heaven The Applause of Heaven easily becomes a step by step description of how to rebuild the believer’s heart. God is relentlessly in pursuit of his children and He desires to welcome them home with applause. Through the Beatitudes, Lucado hopes to convey this message to rekindle the love inside God’s children. Within the first couple of chapters, Lucado immediately introduces the bi-product of Christ’s reconstruction of the believer’s heart. He begins his series of insights by introducing the idea of the Sacred Delight. This Sacred Delight is a holy joy that comes from God and is the gift received when a person surrenders everything they have come to know and cherish. Lucado recognizes this shift and says it starts with, “a demolition of the old structure and a creation of the anew,” and explicitly interjects that, “the more radical the change, the greater the joy. And it’s worth every effort, for this is the joy of God,” (Lucado, p12). Lucado breaks down what the idea of the Sacred Delight means. He says, “Sacred Delight is good news coming through the back door of [one’s own] heart. It’s what [one had] always dreamed but never expected. It’s the too-good-to-be-true coming true,” (Lucado, p10). Lucado is an excellent narrator and uses his words to truly convey an idea in a multitude of ways. He even goes further than just simple illustrations to explain what makes this Sacred Delight so joyful. “It is sacred because only God can grant it. It......

Obama Rhetorical Analysis

...October 01, 2011 Remarks by the President at the Human Rights Campaign's Annual National Dinner Washington Convention Center Washington, D.C. 7:26 P.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Thank you so much. It is great to be back. (Applause.) I see a lot of friends in the house. I appreciate the chance to join you tonight. I also took a trip out to California last week, where I held some productive bilateral talks with your leader, Lady Gaga. (Laughter.) She was wearing 16-inch heels. (Laughter.) She was eight feet tall. (Laughter.) It was a little intimidating. Now, I don’t want to give a long speech. Cyndi Lauper is in the house. I can’t compete with that. (Applause.) But I wanted to come here tonight, first of all, to personally thank Joe for his outstanding years of leadership at HRC. (Applause.) What he has accomplished at the helm of this organization has been remarkable, and I want to thank all of you for the support that you’ve shown this organization and for your commitment to a simple idea: Every single American -- gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender -- every single American deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law and in the eyes of our society. It’s a pretty simple proposition. (Applause.) Now, I don’t have to tell you that we have a ways to go in that struggle. I don’t have to tell you how many are still denied their basic rights -- Americans who are still made to feel like second-class citizens, who have to live a lie to keep their jobs, or who......

...President Fidel Ramos, sir, salamat po sa tulong mo making me President; President Joseph Ejercito Estrada; Senate President Franklin Drilon and the members of the Senate; Speaker Feliciano Belmonte and the members of the House of Representatives; Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court; His Excellency Guiseppe Pinto and the members of the Diplomatic Corps; incoming members of the Cabinet; fellow workers in government; my fellow countrymen. [applause] No leader, however strong, can succeed at anything of national importance or significance unless he has the support and cooperation of the people he is tasked to lead and sworn to serve. It is the people from whom democratic governments draw strength and this administration is no exception. That is why we have to listen to the murmurings of the people, feel their pulse, supply their needs and fortify their faith and trust in us whom they elected to public office. [applause] There are many amongst us who advance the assessment that the problems that bedevil our country today which need to be addressed with urgency, are corruption, both in the high and low echelons of government, criminality in the streets, and the rampant sale of illegal drugs in all strata of Philippine society and the breakdown of law and order. True, but not absolutely so. For I see these ills as mere symptoms of a virulent social disease that creeps and cuts into the moral fiber of Philippine society. I sense a......

Social Media Analysis Caterpillar Facebook

...Using Engagor, Excel and SPSS Statistical 22, we analyzed the e-business process support of Caterpillar on three social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Next pie chart shows how much firm generated content had been analyzed, setting up a certain time frame. In the following, both quantitative and qualitative insights are provided. Number of analyzed firm generated content Processes supported on social media In order to give a brief overview of the business processes supported by Caterpillar on several social media platforms, we used SPSS Statistics 22. The following pie charts and frequency tables result from our statistical deceptive analysis. Facebook - Caterpillar Inc. Looking at the pie chart and the frequency table of the Facebook page ‘Caterpillar Inc.’, we can conclude that the overall presence of Trade Processes (Authentication, Customer Service and Search) is rather obvious. With 66.7% of the business processes, content regarding Authentication Processes are most likely to be generated by Caterpillar on this social media platform. The fact that this page is the main Facebook page of this company can be a logical explanation for its Trade Process focused nature. Since these processes are rather customer oriented, it is wise to reach their customers via their established brand name and the most well-known social media platform. Furthermore, we also recognize a small amount of Decision Support Processes. In light of the previous explanation...

...right. Helen can also promise to her friend that she will not disclose the stealing of paper by her friend to anyone; Promise right. It should be a fair competition between Helen and other students of her class. It’s unfair for other students who don’t have access to the final exam. If the other students get a chance of having a final paper before the Final, then everyone will have an equal chance to be considered a fair game else it will be an inequality towards other students. There will be a lack of justice if stealing of paper by Helen’s friend goes unnoticed. Helen will earn lot of respect from professor by showing virtue; truthfulness and rejecting the final paper from her friend. Being Truthful and honest, Helen will win lot of applause from professor and on the other side the professor or University will take appropriate actions to punish Helen’s friend for stealing the paper from mailbox. This will do proper justice to Helen for being honest and truthful and also indirectly to other students of the class. To Helen, there will be no point of receiving nice treatment from her friend. Though, her friend stole the final exam only to help sensitive Helen. Her friend deserved the respect of Helen and she also deserved a promise from Helen of keeping secret about the truth. Helen could convince her in keeping the final exam. She...

Moral Proposal

...monetary rewards is not always the answer, or in many cases not the best answer when it comes to retaining an employee. I hope to give you some ideas on what will help motivate employees without raising their pay. Some of the retaining notions I feel will work are recognition, appointed leadership roles, and increasing company and office moral. The first idea for motivating employees is recognition. This is very important because when your employee accomplishes something that means they have achieved something. The recognition is appreciation of that achievement. Many members of management don’t give enough or sometimes don’t give any recognition. In addition, applause from time to time would be nice for specific achievements. The applause could take place at a meeting, luncheon, or even in the office. To back up applause, employees could be presented with a plaque or certificate that states the specified accomplishment. By doing so, the employee will feel valued and will continue to put forth an effort. Moreover, on the spot praise is in my opinion the most effective way when recognizing excellent work. This works best smaller accomplishments that could be forgotten prior to the...

Concert Review

...that was going to be played. He then got into his position and picked up his stick and began to conduct Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major. The music starts off slow and smooth as it felt like doves flying the sky in a Disney movie. About two minutes into the piece Ingrid Fliter begins to play her piano solo. While she was playing she looked so calm and poised. I tried to picture myself in the position and couldn’t stop laughing how horrible I would sound. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 had three movements Allegro, Adagio, and Allegro assai. The piece lasted about twenty five minutes and the end of the piece had me moving my fingers like I was conducted the orchestra. Once the piece was over the crowded erupted with a round of applause to the grinning face of the pianist Ingrid Fliter.

Influential Speaker Commentary

...Influential Speaker Commentary Political views aside, most can agree that Barack Obama is an influential and very effective speaker. He is able to inspire masses of people with his simple, yet articulate use of words. He always speaks with a sense of smooth confidence, yet never near the spectrum of arrogance. Most importantly, he is so effective because he accurately knows his audience before performing the speech. Obama is truly talented in his ability to make people identify with him, because the audience feels as if he walked a mile in their shoes. Interestingly, Obama is rarely seen reading a speech. The president is known to read from tele-prompters however the audience is unable to tell. It appears to the audience that Obama creates every speech on the spot, however he is somehow able to convey every point with extreme clarity, and free from any pauses. It is clear that Obama is a naturally talented orator, and that he has honed his skills through practice at Harvard, and throughout his political career. No matter what side of the political arena one may be on, seeing Obama speak live is a compelling experience, more so than past presidents. He is able to instantly connect with the audience with clarity and conviction. Obama is known by many as the people’s president, with his goal of strengthening the middle class, and opposing trickledown economics. He effectively communicates with the lower and middle class demographic because he radiates a feeling of......

Sondheim's a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

...Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum When I think of musical comedy, Stephen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is the first show that comes to mind. Just three years ago, I had never heard of Forum before, until my high school choir director announced that it would be our 2008 musical. I was hesitant to audition at first, not knowing the plot or what I was getting myself into, but now I can honestly say that it was my favorite musical production ever to be a part of. Forum, a musical farce written in two acts and Sondheim’s first work on Broadway both as composer and lyricist, is “a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for freedom” (MTI 1). In Sondheim’s own words, “there’s not a wasted moment in Forum, and the truth and the test of it is that the play is just as funny when performed by a group of high school students as it is when it is performed on Broadway. It is never not funny. The reason is, it is based on situations so solid that you cannot not laugh” (Gordon 25). A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a collaboration between American librettist Burt Shevelove, playwright Larry Gelbart, and musical theater extraordinaire, Stephen Sondheim. Originally, Shevelove had done a version of a Roman comedy in college and thought that a professional Broadway production would be......

Audience Analysis and Reception

...Audience Analysis and Reception Name XBCOM/275 Date Instructors name Audience Analysis and Reception Audience Analysis and Reception In this paper, I will present some important facts while preparing a report for the management of my company. My goal while speaking to them would be to either inform, persuade or entertain the upper management. While doing this I need to know the interests, likes and dislikes. I will tailor my speech to the needs of the management which would lead to a positive reaction from them. Why you need to know your audience? This is important because in order to achieve your purpose, as well as to get the expression and applause you desire, you must satisfy the audience with something in which they are interested. Thus, it is important to know what your audience is interested in, what their expectations are and even what mood they are in. In speaking to a group of managers at work, you have a good idea of who will be in the audience. There may be some individuals to be wary of or to whom you should focus the speech. It is a good idea to know who is important in my career in giving his presentations. If you find out about some key people in the audience, you can use them in your opening comments to gain rapport with the audience. Everyone likes a humorous comment about the boss, at your expense, not at his or hers. Audience Analysis and Reception ...

...Aquino recalled the issues of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (PGMA) administration that were inherited to him before his term in 2010 such as 'Hello Garci'scandal, ZTE-NBN deal, MWSS bonus, Maguindanao massacre, and NFA anomalies.
