My Place - The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis
Human diversity is a social and psychological reality.
Diversity refers to the identification of the person for whom each is as it is and not as we would like. His identity. This recognition is what sets human dignity. So is talking about diversity of identity. Identity is what allows us to distinguish ourselves from others. Who we are. Every aspect of that identity puts us in a human group. The language we speak, the things we eat, our hobbies, our physical or mental characteristics or history with which we identify are some aspects of that identity.
The multimedia emulator "My Place" is a tool that shows how people just see the look or a brief summary of its history, a person labeled. Although for me it is very important not only to evaluate the book by the cover. The exercise of matching people with their biographies was very interesting and educational well as curious. Often my biggest problem was pairing race with the site of origin. He did not remember and with the global mixing is not only a German white with blue eyes for example. It can be any descent and born there. Just as religions that have spread worldwide an Islamic person is not just a Catholic Arab. We are all unique and increasingly mixing cultures have created a global citizen. Personally different viewpoints are good in all cases, whether in information systems or any other profession.
A profile that caught my attention was that Tammy did not seem as New York, the sex and the city look or complicated it looks like a New Yorker. This is one of the stereotypes we create as humans. I only can conceive what I see not what is hidden my visible dimension maybe consider optimism. The profile describe this person being born in Syracaur, NY, they lived in an upscale suburb.

...down. There was nothing else to do, so Alice soon began talking again. 'Dinah'll miss me very much tonight, I should think!' (Dinah was the cat.) 'I hope they'll remember her milk at tea-time. Dinah my dear! I wish you were down here with me! There are no mice in the air, I'm afraid, but you might catch a bat, and that's very like a mouse, you know. But do cats eat bats, I wonder?' And here Alice began to get rather sleepy, and went on saying to herself, in a dreamy sort of way, 'Do cats eat bats? Do cats eat bats?' and sometimes, 'Do bats eat cats?' for, you see, as she couldn't answer either question, it didn't much matter which way she put it. She felt that she was going to sleep, and had just begun to dream that she was walking hand in hand with Dinah, and saying to her very earnestly, 'Now, Dinah, tell me the truth: did you ever eat a bat?' when suddenly, thump! thump! down she came upon a heap of sticks and dry leaves, and the fall was over. Alice was not a bit hurt, and she jumped up on to her feet in a moment: she looked up, but it was all dark overhead; before her was another long passage, and the White Rabbit was still in sight, hurrying down it. There was not a moment to be lost: away went Alice like the wind, and was just in time to hear it say, as it turned a corner, 'Oh my ears, how late it's getting!' She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen: she found herself in a long, low hall, which was lit up by a row of......

...RUNNING HEAD: My Place: The Place for Diversity Chawn A. Thomas My Place: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis COMM 315/Diversity Issues in Communication November 4, 2010 Barbara Lach-Smith Although, I am not the type of person who judges people based on their superficial characteristics, after reviewing the examples depicted in the multimedia analysis, I did find myself judging people based on superficial characteristics as proven in the following examples. Example #1 “I received my bachelor’s degree in English and worked as the managing editor of a weekly newspaper while pursuing my master’s degree in communications. Shortly after attaining my master’s I worked for a large company as a graphic specialist before I began teaching for Axia College online. While working on my master’s degree, I lost my mom to cancer. Soon after, I struggled to find myself and experimented with many drugs, only to find out that they weren’t the answer and that my mom wasn’t coming back.” In this scenario, I originally selected the wrong person, and my selection was based on appearance...

My Happy Place

...As I sit here, on the hood of my car looking out into the vast field I think to myself, why this place? Out of all the places that mean so much to me, why does this place stand out the most? Everyone has that one spot that is special to him or her for various reasons whether it be a memory, experience, how it makes them feel, etc. For me, my favorite place encompasses all my senses bringing them to an all time high filling me with an overwhelming indescribable feeling. It’s my sanctuary, a safe place, but above all a place to clear my mind and getaway from reality. There aren’t enough captivating words to describe the beauty of this place. In the winter, the vast field covered in a blanket of untouched glimmering snow surrounded by bare trees brings a certain type of quiet stillness to the place. The only sign of life are the tracks made by the various animals that are brave enough to stick around during the chilly winter temperatures. The spring brings new life to the space with the blossoming of nature, muddy shoeprints and birds singing their sweet little songs. In summer, the preserve comes to the peek of its lifecycle packed with people and laughter. Nature’s vibrant colors and the soft sounds make it seem as if it was a scene out of a perfect movie. The fall brings cool crisp air to fill your lungs with and the unspeakable beauty of the leaves changing colors. Each season encompasses a different vibe to the preserve leaving me with different emotions. The preserve is......

My Favorite Place

...My Favorite Place Gatlinburg, Tennessee is my favorite place to be for many reasons. In the city there are many small stores and different restaurants to choose from. There is never a boring moment at any time of the day. Every time I visit Gatlinburg I always have an awesome and eventful time. My main favorite place in Tennessee is my grandma’s house. My grandma has always kept many farm and house animals. In the backyard there is an old gray barn with white doors, four windows, and the paint is slowly peeling away on the outside. The barn contains a few pigs, cows, and chickens. She always has had a dog inside the house, currently a caramel colored Boxer named Sammy. About a mile from each side of her house are two big farms. One farm grows different crops such as hay and corn. The other farm has many cows roaming around inside of a fenced area while grazing on hay. There is also an oval shaped pond in her backyard. After a long day I always swim in the pond and in the middle of it there is a huge navy blue raft I swim to and sit on for a while. The pond also stocked with fish so it’s fun to go fishing in too. I love visiting my grandma during the summer because it is very peaceful and eventful. Another reason I enjoy being in Tennessee is the extremely beautiful weather that it has. There are consistent hot and sunny temperatures. In the summer it is usually around 80-100+ degrees outside. During this time I’m never occupied in the house at all and I’m pretty much......

Diversity in Work Place

...Unleashing the Real Power of Diversity Major Thesis The workforce is becoming increasingly diverse, and organizations are doing more to address employee concerns and to maximize the benefit of different kinds of employees. But to benefit from those differences managers need to look past the obvious differences such as how they think, learn, work, solve problems, manage their time, and deal with other people. One of the enduring roles of HR managers is to serve as employee advocate – listening to employees’ concerns and representing their needs to managers – to make certain that the interests of employees and interests of the organization are aligned with one another (Snell and Bohlander, 2013). Authors of The Inclusion Breakthrough, Unleashing the Real Power of Diversity, Frederick Miller and Katz Katz believe that organizations are strengthened by a diversity of perspectives, nationalities, and backgrounds; and that all groups posses the inherent potential of diversity, but to truly leverage it you need inclusion (Miller and Katz, 2002, pg.1). An inclusion breakthrough is a process to transform the organization from a mono-cultural organization that values and supports sameness in style and approach, to a culture of inclusion that leverages diversity in all its many dimensions. It also is an approach for any organization that wants to transform their efforts from, a diversity in a box approach, to one that truly unleashes the power of diversity. An inclusion......

...Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Mary Hoffman COMM/315 March 3, 2014 Dr. Jody Kehle Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Diversity is a term that has grown in its use over the years. Simply put, the term refers to all of the ways in which people are different and unique. These include each individual, groups of people, and cultural differences (Bucher, 2010). So often, our society judges people by outer appearance (for example: color of hair, color of eyes, and clothes you wear), the social groups people are associated with, the home/neighborhood you live in, the car you drive, and even the school you attended or graduated from. It’s just like judging a book by its cover. I think everyone does it a little, whether they mean to or not. During my review of the Myplace multimedia analysis on the University of Phoenix student web site, I noticed that began to look for superficial characteristics in the individuals photos to match the profile. Example 1: “I received my bachelor’s degree in English and worked as the managing editor of a weekly newspaper while pursuing my master’s degree in communications. Shortly after attaining my master’s, I worked for a large company as a graphic specialist before I began teaching for Axia College online.

My Secret Place

...My Secret Place Guides1Questions1orSubmit my paper for analysis What is your attitude towards loneliness? Do you think it is a curse, when you are isolated from the rest of the world, left face-to-face with yourself? Or do you, on the contrary, seek it, appreciating each moment of silence you can snatch from the surrounding world? These small breaks can help you replenish your energy and reorganize your thoughts, so that you can start each day as a new one—not as an extension of a previous one. As for me, I am more of the second kind of person; solitude for me is a gift, which is valued less by people than it should be accorded. In my child and teen years, I had a perfect place to go to when I felt like being on my own. In a small town in the center of America, where I lived back then, we had a steep hill on the outskirts. On its top, an old warehouse stood. No one, even older people, seemed to know who had built that warehouse in such an inconvenient place, and what for. Some said that smugglers used it during World War II for their purposes; others told stories about local slaveholders, who lived in our town a long time ago—those people were thought to have kept slaves in the old warehouse. For us children, that old wooden shack was a haunted place with a grim, bloody story of love and treason. None of the townsmen had ever visited the old warehouse. Children were scared and adults just did not feel like climbing up the steep slope for no reason. For most of a......

The socioeconomic impact of the business we chose, McMenamins has on the public and its employees is great. For the public it provides a melting pot where many different backgrounds can come together and blend without prejudice for a meal and a craft beer. McMenamins is also active in helping the communities its business is related to such as, the Bagdad Theater and Pub helps with the Annual Hawthorne Holiday Stroll, “dedicated to the ideals of community involvement and making Hawthorne a desirable place to work, shop, and live”. (McM web) Their web page has many more events just like this one. As for the employees, I’ve read reviews of current and former employees some say it’s great place to work, some didn’t like it as much. The biggest complaints were working conditions, low pay and lack of upward mobility. All being equal this is a very tough business where there is a lot of turn over. I also discovered that there’s a large number of employees that have worked for McMenamins for twenty years or more. This also creates a tougher market for upward movement because of long term employees getting the opportunities because of their commitment.

Diversity in Work Place

...Diversity in the American workplace is very important but corporate culture in this country works against women and minorities to a certain extent (Tannen, 1995). The conversational styles that most women use tend to be less popular with businesses and corporations than the conversational styles that men use. Because of this, women are often overlooked for promotions, are seen as less confident, and are not considered as worthwhile when it comes to individuals giving their ideas and helping out with teamwork. Much of this comes from childhood when little girls were taught to be nice to other individuals and help to downplay their weaknesses, while little boys were taught to play up the weaknesses of other individuals and claim strength and domination if they were able (Tannen, 1995; Adams & Galanges, 2005). Individuals who come from one part of the country to another also face this and some men who lack a great deal of self-confidence and are not willing to speak up are also treated as though they are weak. Because of this, many women are overlooked for promotions and other issues in which they are extremely well-qualified but it is not believed that they are confident enough to do the job due to the fact that they do not speak up in the same manner that men do (Michard & Viollet, 1991). Women are not the only ones having difficulty, however. One of the main issues for organizational behavior that is both a challenge and an opportunity is the diversity of the workforce, and......

...My Favorite Place The alarm rang from my phone, flashing loudly that it was 6:30AM. I knew I had to get up and get ready for school. As I pressed the snooze button, I laid in bed under the warmth of the layers of my blanket. Halfway asleep, I turned and saw the light peeking through between the long red curtains shining on my face, made it harder for me to get up. My room was pitch black even if it was light out. I always had trouble getting out of bed. I prefer it that way, because it makes my room cozier. Being within the confines of my blankets made me feel like a warm burrito. I looked at my phone once again and it said 6:45AM. I had gotten up immediately to made sure I was not late for class. I pulled my curtains to the side, it gave me more light throughout my room. As that happened, I started to squint because it was so bright. Already being at school, I felt like I wanted to go back home to sleep. I was imagining myself sitting on my bed, in my quiet room. It is one of my favorite places to be in. I was so exhausted. I was relieved that I had my hot coffee because I would have been knocked out in class. Thankfully I only had two classes to attend that day. When I went on my break between classes, I started to talk to my friend Lala; “Hey morning! omg it is so early for class… I just really want to go back to bed” “Hey’ yes for real girl I almost fell asleep in Micro Economics” Lala said. “I know tell me about it” I said.

The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis

...Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis University of Phoenix, Fresno, Ca Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Diversity has always been open to various interpretations. Richard Bucher (2010) points out that because we are all unique and different in our own way there is no one universally agreed upon definition of diversity. Historically, diversity has largely been defined in terms of race and gender. The definition that best sums up my understanding of diversity is that it is a reality created by individuals and groups from a broad spectrum of demographic and philosophical differences. The list of these differences is endless and apart from the major differences of race and gender, it also encompasses a myriad of other characteristics such as religion, marital status, political beliefs, education, military status, lifestyle, social class, appearance and personality. These differences can be visible or hidden as demonstrated in the Myplace: The Place for Diversity multimedia. A very small percentage of our diversity differences seem to be visible until you get to know the other person. Race, ethnicity, age, attitude or gender are dimensions that are visible to the naked eye. For example, a person with darker skin is different from a person with lighter skin color. The same applies to other blatantly obvious physical attributes like gender which allows us to pick out males from females. In the multimedia presentation there is Michelle...

...Workplace diversity refers to the variety of differences between people in an organization. That sounds simple, but diversity encompasses race, gender, ethnic group, age, personality, cognitive style, tenure, organizational function, education, background and more. So why should companies concern themselves with diversity? Is this just because discrimination is wrong, both legally and morally? Or is there more to it? A recent Harvard Business Review article asked this question to 24 CEOs from around the globe who ran companies and corporate divisions that had earned reputations for embracing people from all kinds of backgrounds. When we asked these executives why advancing diversity in their organizations was so important to them, the aggregate answer was twofold: They believed it was a business imperative because their companies needed it to stay competitive, and they believed it was a moral imperative because of their personal experiences and values. These CEOs spoke forcefully about diversity as an advantage. Paul Block of the U.S. sweetener manufacturer Merisant pointed out, “People with different lifestyles and different backgrounds challenge each other more. Diversity creates dissent, and you need that. Without it, you’re not going to get any deep inquiry or breakthroughs.” Or, as Jonathan Broomberg of the South African insurer Discovery Health put it, diversity is “a source of creativity and innovation.” A more diverse workforce, they say, will increase......

My Favorite Place

...Working to find my inner peace, I go from place to place just looking for the solitude. A warm, comforting place that I may call my own. That place has been found and not many can claim it for it is mine. Out in the rolling country side of Fort Meade, Florida is a dream just unfolding. The Sunkist sunrise and sunset, the breath taking stars, and the calm, solitary squeeze against my being just makes it all the more better. On the outskirts of the Lilliputian town there is nothing more than the everlasting land where it’s hard to tell where the sky starts and where it stops. Nothing more than a relationship between nature and myself. Cool breezes drag the scent of pine trees and water through the air and the grass grows tall and dark green. Hawks, pigeons, and quails make beautiful music as their aria begins to sync. So the only sounds you can hear are the arias being sung and the wind blowing through my hair. The sunset glows of many pinks, yellows, lavenders, and blues as the day begins to kiss the land goodnight. The numerous birds flee to their nests as they begin to drift into slumber as the night is just beginning. The luminous moon rises to the center of the dark, velvet curtain. Its illumination kisses every tree, strand of grass, and the mist obscuring the few houses that scatter the land. Although the birds are nestled in their homes, the foxes, raccoons, and creatures of the night come out to find their next meal. No longer is there a breeze brushing my skin for......
