Our Use of Technology Has Gone Too Far.

Hello Mia, thank you for your inspiring, and meaningful letter.
I love the way you express your meanings, and still write what is happening to our brains with all this technology.
You say that in today’s world you can not sit with people who aren't using their phones. I completely disagree with you. In many cases people use their phones but most of my friends, and family can easily control the use of their phones. So I think it is very different from person to person.
We live in a world today where everything happens on phones, computers, iPads, and so on. We follow the news online we follow our friends and families life's online, and the most important of all is that we can keep in touch and connect with our acquaintances and friends.
I agree with a lot of your arguments but the “online life” is still a big part of the world today and we need to accept all the bad, and good things that comes with it.
I think that it is a great invention, and for everyday the technology is getting smarter, faster and also more complicated. I can see what you mean when you say it’s getting more dangerous when when you need to go by yourselves to the bank, and pay the bills. Exactly! But What if the systems breaks down one day? Then we will have to trust the smart people who are working all these things out for us, and we will be completely helpless.
I hope that you can see the things differently now and maybe this has changed your mind a little on the…...

...Kevin Thomas GE217 Hudson 12/16/12 Opinion on John Ellis John Ellis’s opinion on violence on television was very one sided. He primarily focused on the increase in violence on television correlating directly to the increase in violence in school. While this is a factor to consider in the increase of violence, he never once looked at his examples of students that committed these horrific crimes home life. The way the perpetrators grew up surely needs to be considered. Home life plays a big part on how the person will develop and moral standing on how they will react to actually doing a horrendous crime like shooting children in a school. John Ellis’s percentages on the increase in violence on television were astounding. If a person watches television a lot of the time of course that will affect the way they view life in death if they are seeing it so blatantly disregarded on television every day. Taking all of what John has written, I do not feel that violence in television is the only reason for the increase in school shootings. Violence is a part of the world, that is just the case and it always has been. What he did not look at is the whole picture. While I agree that violence in television has increased significantly, that cannot be the only factor in why someone would commit these crimes. What pushed these people over the edge? Why were these people watching television episodes with so much violent in them so often? Why did the parents of this person not supervising...

Opinion

... zones. I have explained my personal observations of women operating in a combat operation, now I will offer my opinion of a woman’s right to choose. Women have earned the opportunity to serve as pilots in direct support of combat troops during engagements and I believe they should have the opportunity to earn the chance to operate in a kinetic environment. The website News Observer.com provides an article “Female Troops Still Battling for Right to Fight.” The article states that due to cultural taboos in Iraq and Afghanistan, women are volunteering for duties that send them into dangerous neighborhoods and villages where insurgents hide, to search females for weapons and obtain information. Male Marines would not be able to conduct these types of interviews without disturbing the local male populace. The females are not doing this for notoriety, it is happening because they want to do their part. NewsObserver.com continues on with the following from Joan Galbraith, Women Veteran’s Program Manager for the Durham Veteran’s Administration Medical Center, who says “women have long been coming back from wars with the same kinds of injuries as men and they’re losing legs, arms, and eyes just like the guys are.” I believe that the military today would adjust to females in combat jobs just as they adjusted to homosexuals openly serving. As long as females can perform their duties, they should be able to choose how they serve. I have explained that women should have the...

My Opinion About About Marxism

... that through out human history it's always been the oppressors against the oppressed which in my own opinion no matter what kind of system of government a society practiced there's always going to be oppressors against the oppressed. Life is like a battle field where only the strong and determined can survive and so is the society we live. Even if we all start from one level in life we might all not be able to end at the same point because each one has a special and unique feature. Some people are naturally born to be great while others are born to be losers. Some are good with their head while others are good with their hands so there's always bound to be class difference. Like one of the principles of economics 'rational people think about the margin' some people might decide to drop out of school because they think its not worth it while others no matter how difficult it might be they will still persist on. Years later I wouldn't expect to see these two people on the same level. The idea of creating a classless, stateless and moneyless with the Marxist ideology is impossible in my own opinion, we can only try to improve the lives of the less fortunate and bring justice to all. The state can not be a universal class because people by nature are greedy and selfish. We only care about our own self interest and people put in high positions as civil servants can't be fully trusted to represent the universal class. The adage " we all have equal vote but we all don't have......

My Opinion, Henrietta Lacks' Response and Dr.Kings Dream

...Dr. King once said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Dr. King had a vision that one day everyone could be seen as equal and that they would only be judged by their character. He knew that during his time, African Americans were at a disadvantage compared to the whites. The African Americans had fewer rights, and Dr. King sought to change that fact and help for the equality of all. While obtaining freedom and rights have been achieved in Dr. King’s dream, everyone being seen as equal or being judged by the content of a person’s character has not fully been fulfilled. I believe that Henrietta lacks would have responded to Dr. King’s speech with joy and acceptance. First off, Henrietta lacks was born in Roanoke, Virginia, on August 1, 1920 and had 9 other siblings. Henrietta was raised by her grandfather after her mother died. Henrietta attended school, but she stopped in the sixth grade. While walking to school she passed the white school where children threw rocks and taunted her. Later on, Henrietta married David and moved north. She was also soon diagnosed with cervical cancer and was treated as a research experiment. Scientists took her cells without her permission and discovered that her cancer cells didn’t die. Though they made much success, they gave her no credit because she was black. Henrietta would have loved a time where she...

Communication Opinion

...Communication Opinion Paper HCS 320 April 21, 2014 Communication Opinion Paper What is communication? Communication could be described in many of ways. One of the best definitions of communication is that it is a “process of understanding and sharing meaning” (du Pré, 2010). Communication is not one stagnant event that occurs. There are elements involved within it that leads to a specific meaning that is shared between the individuals. Being able to communicate effectively helps perop to obtain a better understanding of the person or situations. This paper will cover the elements of basic communication, how the elements differ from the basic rules of health care communication, providers and their communication with the patient, and cultural differences within communication. Effective Communication As mentioned earlier, communication is a process. The individuals involved in communication realize that it is an ongoing situation for each person to obtain an understanding between them as well as the environment that surrounds them. This process would include a receiver, sender, message, channel and feedback. Effective communication should also include clear and concise information and contain the adequate amount of information needed. Being able to communicate effectively would help a person to relay both negative and positive information and being able to do so without destroying any trust or creating a conflict. One basic element of effective communication is...

Communication Opinion

...Communication Opinion Paper Diana Rodriguez HCS/320 May 5, 2014 Communication Opinion Paper In healthcare, providers must communicate effectively by using the basic elements of communication with a compassionate and understanding approach. What are the five basic elements of communication? Quite simply, the sender, receiver, message, channel and feedback play a significant role in how providers and patients interact in order to accomplish a mutual level of understanding. (Cheesebro, O'Connor, & Rios, 2010) Communication is about sending and receiving messages but listening is the key to bringing clarity to the topic of a conversation. Being descriptive and inquisitive while exchanging information helps grasp the feelings, wants, thoughts and needs of the people communicating. (Cheesebro, O'Connor, & Rios, 2010) It is important to know the reasoning behind the message being delivered. In the medical field professionals deal with many types of audiences like vendors and the communication style will be different for each one. Professionals must be eager to be good listeners so that they can summarize the sender’s information. Being good writers will collect he necessary data needed to take good care of patients, address their needs appropriately. Utilizing verbal and non-verbal communication skills by making eye contact and controlling the tone and volume of their voice is still considered a form of speech and is a good way to build a connection with others...

Jabwood International Case Study - My Personal Opinion

...Jabwood International Case Analysis I. Analysis Problem: Jabwood International is experiencing a downward trend in revenue and sales and may continue this trend if change is not made immediately. Causes: Due to the financial crisis and economic downturn across the world, Lebanon has seen an almost flat performance in the real estate market driving down the prices of raw materials used in construction such as wood. Advances in transportation and technology have led to increased competition in the timber industry. A subsidiary of Jabwood based out of Saudi Arabia was closed for non-business related matters. This subsidiary, before closure, contributed almost half of Jabwood’s sales. Jabwood is a large company that has a very strict and limiting business structure. Jabwood’s physical presence remains solely in Lebanon. Jabwood relies heavily on one major supplier for approximately 60 to 70 percent of its revenue. This supplier intends to offer the opportunity to sell to other wood wholesalers, eliminating Jabwood’s exclusivity. Possible Alternatives: In order to increase revenue and sales, Jabwood International has many options. In my opinion, the only feasible options would include expanding their business into two countries: Saudi Arabia and China. Expanding into the Saudi Arabia market is a very enticing solution for many reasons. Saudi Arabia does not have its own wood supply and therefore relies heavily on other countries for this need. Jabwood has had...

My Article

...Nature, one of the world’s most-cited scientific publications, took a step toward open access on Tuesday by granting its subscribers and journalists wide authority to let outside readers view its articles at no cost. Under the new policy, subscribers to 49 journals published by the Nature Publishing Group and collected on Nature’s website can create and share links to full-text versions of all of that content. About 100 media outlets also can include free links in news reports that reference articles in the group’s journals. The change is a financial risk for Nature, which recognizes that it may lose money from both subscribers and nonsubscribers who buy access to a single article, Steven C. Inchcoombe, chief executive officer of the Nature Publishing Group, said in an interview outlining the decision. "But we think the bigger risk is pretending it’s not happening," Mr. Inchcoombe said of the growing movement toward open-access formats, and Nature finding itself in a world where "that usage [is] gradually migrating elsewhere, and us being left as a glorified digital archive making available content to fuel activity everywhere else." The move follows steadily growing pressure on publishers to permit open access to articles describing research produced with taxpayer dollars. Last year the Obama administration introduced rules requiring journals to make articles about federally financed research available to the public within 12 months. And last month the Bill...

...The legal drinking age today is 21, an individual must be 21 years of age to purchase alcohol and consume it. Still there are numerous minors who are able to get alcohol and consume it as well. I believe the legal drinking age should be lowered to accommodate individuals 18 years and older. Many people will argue that the drinking age limit should remain 21 years of age, and to some that may sound better than thinking of younger people being able to drink legally. Numerous minors, aged 18-20, are still finding ways to get alcohol and are able to consume it at home or at parties that are not watched over. Some may believe that 18 is too young of an age to be able to purchase alcohol, but 18 year olds are able to sign up to go into the army. Being 18 years old is considered becoming an adult, you can join the army and give your life to protect your country at 18 years old, so I believe you should be able to enjoy an alcohol beverage as well, at that age. The maturity level in people between the ages 18-21 is irrelevant when it comes to alcohol. Someone who is 25 can be just as immature as someone who is 18 when alcohol is involved. You can’t assume everyone under the age of 21 is going to abuse alcohol and act out, because there are also grown women and men who are just as immature when they drink. We can also look at the fatalities caused by underage drunk drivers, but there are also plenty of fatalities cause by adult drunk drivers. My cousin was killed years ago, by a...

My Subjective Opinion on "The Wave" by Marciel Camillo Ayala

...My Subjective Opinion On "The Wave" by Marciel Camillo Ayala "The Wave" uses juxtaposition of different compositional elements to create a piece that explores the realms of human life and finding its meaning. The focus of the painting, the water, symbolizes life itself. And the form the water is in, a river, represents the fluidity and constant change of life. The artist uses different shades of blue, both dark and light, to arise feelings of contrast in which change in our lives can be wanted, unwanted, or even conceivably both. Furthermore, the nearly symmetrical disturbances in the water – which can be referred to as the ripples in the water – create a sense of division between expectations and reality. On the left, we see a rocky, precipitous, and rough side that symbolizes reality. On the right side, we see a smooth, fluid landscape with rolling hills that symbolizes expectations of reality. This comparison of reality vs. expectations identifies with the saying, "the grass is always greener on the other side," and can be clearly connected to the expectations side, in which there is a greater and much more noticeable presence of the colour green. In between these two sides, the objects within the water – which the viewers may envision of as themselves – embody the struggles endured in real life, while reaching for those expectations. Above everything happening in the painting, the blue sky represents and symbolizes human ambitions and desires for mystery, depth, and......

Write an Opinion Piece Article in Which You Discuss the Issues Surrounding People Changing Their Accents. [40]

... who speak with a local accent such as from Ireland, Scotland or Wales as Giles’ work said that customers feel more comfortable interacting with an operator that spoke with a ‘friendly’ regional accent. Accent reduction schemes work on the basis that regional dialect will be viewed negatively in workplace and attempt to change or completely change the way in which someone speaks. Evidence contradicts this as some regional accents can evoke a positive response and can be an asset in some occupations having the opinion that it is not how you say something but what you are actually saying. Elocution lessons are set to alter the way in which people speak for the weird reason of being liked by society. But why should one change their voice in order to be liked when we are all different individuals in the first place? People may choose to change their accent to be part of a group and this is called convergence – when an individual adjusts his speech patterns to match people belonging to another group or social identity. Celebrities may do this to become more popular. On the other hand, others may change their accent completely – called divergence – this is when an individual adjusts their speech to be distinct from those of people belonging to another group. Giles showed that speakers tend to accommodate their accent to that of their interlocutor, aiming to become similar to the accent of somebody they like or want to impress. Therefore, most people will modify their......
