COM200: Interpersonal Communication

Instructor Angela Gillette

8/15/2011

Dear Mr. and Mrs. ?????,

First off, let me welcome you to a brand new world of love, care, family bonds and holy matrimony. My name is Bryan Kelly, and I am going to give you an idea of how interpersonal communication is going to affect your lives, and the skills/knowledge you will need in order to find yourselves together and still happy 50 years down the road. Marriage today seems, to some, to be a fly-by-night operation. I stand here today writing you to let you know that this does not have to be the case. If you two are willing to take suggestions and follow a simple set of rules based on a health relationship built on proper interpersonal communication, then you have a chance to find yourself happy and in love for some time to come. Communication is the keystone to any strong relationship. In order to truly understand ourselves and our loved ones, we must first understand the way that we interact in our day to day intermingling.


Explain the principles and misconceptions in effective interpersonal communications.
In the textbook Making Connections: Understanding Interpersonal Communication(Sole, 2011), we are shown that there are six basic principles at play regarding Human communications. First, we are told that communication is symbolic. Second, we are shown that communication is shared meaning. Third, communication is shown to be a process. Fourth, the argument is made that communication is culturally determined. Fifth, we are shown that communication occurs in context. Sixth, we are told that communication is purposeful. While these principles serve to explain the basic meanings behind how communications work, there will always be a basic misconception about how and what communication is mean…...

Dear Mr President Speech

...English Speech ‘Dear Mr President’ – P!NK The song Dear Mr President by Pink was written on Martin Luther King Day in 2005 and released in 2006. This song is described as an open letter to the President of the United States at the time, George W Bush. Pink’s distinctive voice addresses criticism to him and the policies of his administration. She describes it as one of the most important things she has written. The purpose of Pink’s song is to touch on emotional social issues such as the No Child Left Behind Act, the gay rights issues, the war in Iraq and the lack of empathy towards working middle class citizens. This song is directed at George Bush himself but also catches the attention of a wide audience such as American citizens and individuals who have listened to the song as the issues addressed in the song happen all over the world. The song starts with the line ‘Dear Mr President, Come and take a walk with me, let’s pretend we’re just to people and you’re not better then me’ by saying this Pink is trying to close the social gap between the president and everyday people while voicing her opinions to him and inviting him to listen. The lyrics to ‘Dear Mr President’ are bold statements represented by using continuous rhetorical questions as well as metaphors and the use of first person. Pink uses questions such as “What kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay” referring to his opinions on same sex marriage and his push for the Marriage...

Mr.

... Dhirubhai 28 December 1933, - 6 July 2002, was an Indian rags-to-riches business tycoon who founded Reliance Industries in Mumbai with his cousin. Ambani took his company (Reliance) public in 1977, and by 2007 the combined fortune of the family (sons Anil & Mukesh) was 100 billion dollars, making the Ambanis the richest family in the world. In 1962, Dhirubhai returned to India and started the Reliance Commercial Corporation with a capital of Rs.15,000.00. The primary business of Reliance Commercial Corporation was to import polyester yarn and export spices. The business was setup in partnership with Champaklal Damani, his second cousin, who used to be with him in Aden, Yemen. The first office of the Reliance Commercial Corporation was set up at the Narsinatha Street in Masjid Bunder. It was 350 sq ft. room with a telephone, one table and three chairs. Initially, they had two assistants to help them with their business. In 1965, Champaklal Damani and Dhirubhai Ambani ended their partnership and Dhirubhai started on his own. It is believed that both had different temperaments and a different take on how to conduct business. While Mr. Damani was a cautious trader and did not believe in building yarn inventories, Dhirubhai was a known risk taker and he considered that building inventories, anticipating a price rise, and making profits. [3]. In 1968, he moved to an upmarket apartment at Altamount Road in South Mumbai. Ambani's net worth was estimated at about Rs.10 lakh by......

Dear Mr. President

...Dear Mr. President, In this grate country we call America, we have the type of freedom that no other country has ever accomplished before us. Where all citizens regardless of race, religion, or ethnic origins has the right to life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Where anyone can stand up for what he or she believe in and be a part of a nation that fully supports and encourages people to fight for what is right. I would like everyone to take a moment of their time and remember that this gift, that we often take for granted, did not come without a price; and no one deserves our respect and thanks more than our first president George Washington. As one of the founding fathers he risked his blood, treasure and sacred honor to create the greatest nation known to man. I know that we already have president day, which was originally established in recognition of President George Washington, but perhaps we need a “Constitution Day” that focuses on George Washington and the other founding fathers and their work. George Washington was already a retired soldier who was no stranger to war, participating in the French and Indian war (1754-1763). Problems with Brittan started to spark conflict with the colonies. Britain deeply in debt after the French and Indian War demanded more revenue from the colonies (americanhistory.about.com). After a series of acts followed that restricted the colonies rights. In 1774 George Washington led a meeting to discuss growing problems with...

Mr. Ugwu

... a great future ahead of them. He seems like a man, who is working hard for his money, but also a man, who is privileged in many ways. He has a home, a family and a rather good job, compared to the other black people. In addition to that, he has a gardener, who takes care of his wife’s garden, and a houseboy which both show signs of prosperity. Even though he is this privileged, he still works for the white men. The story takes place in Nigeria. There is a clear racial division between the white and black race. As if this was not enough, there is also a division among the black race. We have the Hausas and the Igbo. Mr. Ugwu and his family belongs to the Igbo tribe, while people such as his houseboy is a Hausas. You can clearly see in the way that Mr. Ugwu treats the houseboy that he looks down upon the Hausas’. Mr. Ugwu is trying to stay friends with the white men mainly to keep his position with his job. The British imperialism seems to put its mark on the Nigerian society in some ways. From the clothes they wear to the way of thinking. Mr. Ugwu describes a shirt as “white European cotton shirt”. He also has thoughts of double standards when it comes to his houseboy “makes a mental note to tell his wife to insist the boy wash the dust from his legs and feet before he enters the house”. One western value that is not being well received in the story is sleeping in the same room. That Mrs. Ugwu does not approve of. Next to Mr. Ugwu’s bungalow, his neighbor Jake Javis...

Dear Mr. President

...Dear Mr. President, Civic participation is very important because every citizen (or at least the majority of them) need to engage in the public sphere, including political processes. Media participates often because it lets the public know what’s going on in society. Political participation is also important because if people don’t vote, there wouldn’t be a politically balanced system. No one would be in charge, and people would be in havoc. There was one person that influenced the political participation and that is Susan B. Anthony. Susan contributed towards the right to vote. She drafted the 19th Amendment which clearly states “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex”. The amendment made a huge impact because before the Amendment was ratified, women weren’t allowed to vote. Susan felt as if womn deserved to vote no matter what sex they were. There were many womans rights activists that supported the womens rights to vote but Susan was the only one that expressed her feelings to the public and made a difference. She wanted fairness between bth sexes. Men had more advantages than women in their society at the time. This motivated her to stand up and do whats right for the future of woman, and that woman deserve the same rights as men. Susan should have her own holiday because she honestly deserves it. She changed the lives of every woman ever. She allowed every......

They have come a long way since then and have truly built a reputable name for themselves in the retail/wholesale industry. Its target market includes Small business owners, Vendors, Hawkers, General public. Overall it has a wide target market as they strive to serve any consumers who require goods for re-sale or basic daily use.

The further goals were such as space requirement planning and find methods in which will increase the profits of the business. The approach that was followed was to speak to customers and get feedback on their satisfaction and suggestion of regions that need improvement. For space requirements I used techniques learned in Facility Planning (BFB). My findings and results from the analysing was that there was still room for improvement in the till area, checking out point, space planning and warehouse utilisation.

Dear Mr Presidebt

...Dear Mr. President, Civic and political participation we can say that is the most important personal law for you to work with the government. We all have to follow the rules that the president and the entire government put as a U.S. laws but we all want democracy, we have to make our voice heard to see things happen the way we want to manage the situation, we have many different ways of doing it, we can do it on the internet, blogs, social media, newspaper or even walk to political institution reasonable. Civic participation is important because the people who lived in U.S. have the most power to change laws or even create them, the people in the United States have been raised in a democracy; that is when citizens have the loud voice to make things happen. If we don’t participate sometimes the government can change their rights. Civilians is the better way and the most powerful way to change anything on the government because the government have laws and rules for us to follow them and if we don’t like something only us can change it , for example Venezuela it was a country that the most power was from people who live in the territory including citizens and illegals but now the new president persuade the civilians to change laws that now it makes the country manage for the anarchy and no matter what the civilians do, only the government can change the laws. Eleanor Roosevelt was born in New York on October 11, 1884. The niece of Theodore Roosevelt and wife of franklin D...

Dear Mr. President

...Dear Mr. President, I am a photographer who’s observed many disturbing sights and am showing it to you so that you can see the perils that has befallen your country, Mr. President. I had the opportunity to visit many states where the Great Depression has hit the most, and was shocked to find how bad the lives of people were. In Illinois, there was a young boy whose dad didn’t have a job so they were unable to pay their rent for months. His brother couldn’t afford a car to go to school, so he hasn’t attended for 2 weeks, and the boy’s sister can’t seem to find work either. I observed these farmers in North Dakota that were homeless, beaten down by the rain and shivering because they didn’t have anything since the Dust Bowl wiped out all their crops and the Depression struck. They begged for anything I could give to help them. It was heartbreaking and sad. I took a picture of a 19-year old girl from New Jersey, and let me tell you Mr. President, she looks so old for her age. Her face is haggard and stretched. The effects of the Depression have really messed up our kids. The girl explained that she and her family just lost their house, and she needs money for her graduation. She also requested her glasses to be changed since her eyesight is very poor. I have taken time to think of some ways that could be of benefit to you and the people in figure out how to move past this terrible time. First off, there could be a lottery every week for the people in every state. Whoever wins......

Dear Mr Corbett

...Dear Ms Corbett, I note that your ethos says 'Granton pupils are encouraged to be thoughtful and responsible young people with high self-esteem and with the motivation, skills and knowledge to succeed in life.' I believe that I will be able to help these young people by being at the same level as them so that I can understand them and find ways of encouraging them to have high self–esteem and believe in themselves that they will succeed in education. I will be able to include this in any work that I undertake with the young pupils that attend your school, particularly as I have the ability to listen and empower people. Allowing young people to get their voices heard is a great tool in raising their confidence. I believe that I have the ability to make changes in society by using personal experiences and my educational knowledge to relate to those who I work with. I am aware in order to have a successful career within the health & social care sector I need to build my skills within a professional setting and Granton is the right profession because of how diverse it is. This is vital within health and social care as there are people from different ethnic backgrounds and culture, therefore it is really important for me to always be in an environment where diversity is valued and promoted.      Working with Granton will enable me to develop skills that will benefit me in my career, as well as passing my course. This experience will continue to make me more passionate in......

Dear Mr. Wiesel

...Dear Mr. Wiesel, I just finished reading your book Night. I read it in my English class. I found your story hard to read because of all that you and your family went through. It really made me think about what I would have done if I were in your situation. I’m not sure I could have been as strong as you. I don’t think I could relate anything in my life to that terrible time in yours. So in this letter I will be thanking you for you sacrifices in order to tell your story. When I was reading your book Night I couldn’t help but to think of my own family. It truly broke my heart when you said that was the last time you saw your mother and Tzipora forever. I couldn’t imagine having to go through that with my own family. But if I had to I would try to stay strong like you. I learned a lot more about the holocaust when I read your book. I learned that Hitler didn’t directly control each camp. Your experience has taught me so much. It has taught me to stay strong when I feel weak. A question I would like to ask you, Mr. Wiesel, is do you still have the tattoo the Nazi’s gave you? Did you get it removed? Personally I would keep it to remind me everyday that if I could survive the holocaust I could survive anything and thrive. Your story hit me on a personal level. I hate racism or anything of that nature. When I read this I got mad at Hitler. Mad at the entire Nazi party. Mad at other countries with the means to stop this massacre and didn’t. Is it okay to be mad Mr.......

Dear Mr. Brolin

...To: Bob Broline From: Kimberly Smith Date: December 6, 2013 Subject: After carefully reviewing the problems you are having with your business organization. I have come to the conclusion that that the best option for you and your company is for you to form your company into a Limited Liability Company. I am confident that after I share with you the reason for this change. You will also agree with me that a limited liability will be a good option for both you and your business. Mr.Broline, you are currently operating your business, Broline Woodworks, as a Sole proprietorship. I have talked about that you have liked the advantages of being a sole proprietor because you have the control over the business, all the profits are yours alone, and you only have to file a personal income tax. These advantages are all good parts of sole proprietorship. The Problem for you is the disadvantages of sole proprietorship, which your biggest concerns is personal liability. As a sole proprietor you are personally responsible for all liabilities. This means any judgments against your business; creditors can go after your personal assets. For these reasons I believe you should you and your business would be best severed if you formed into a Limited liability company. The most important reason you may want to consider a limited liability company is that it will protect your personal assets from creditors and legal judgments. Another aspect of a limited liability company is you will...
