The Thre Barriers

University of Phoenix


















The first barrier I would like to start off talking about that influence my thinking and writing is Enculturation. This barrier impacts my life enormously because the strict Christianity background I was born and raised into. Looking back on my academic history I remember writing a paper about politics, and gay marriage was the topic. I aggressively enforced my religious belief about the situations and no one could tell me I was wrong. Looking back on that situation I think a good way to overcome being that closed minded person I was is to simply question everything, instead of letting religion shape how I think. Look at the situation from different point of views as if I wasn't born in Christianity.
The second barrier that influence my thinking is self serving Biase. Back in high school I remember my English teacher gave the class a writting assingment to create our own creative story including the item chosen from the mystery box. My friend chose a dandelion and wrote an amazing story and got an A on it; As to my stoy; I wasnt a creative as he when it came to word, so I despised her work. Later classes switched and we was in a class that I mastered, Art. Every time we had an assingment I would look to see what she was doing so I could out draw her; And I did everytime. I would then critique her work on everthing she did wrong. Overcoming my old ways might consist of being able to accept my mistakes. Everyone is not perfect and we are all talented in different ways. Try thinking positive in all ways even if its not an advantaging you.
Last but not least Self Concept is the last barrier that influence my thinking and writing. The way you view yourself plays a huge role on how you portray yourself. Throughout my life I can sadly say I have always looked at myself…...

Communication Barrier

... three speci¼c characteristics which we suggest constitute signi¼cant communication barriers in public document writing, 24 Inger Askehave and Karen Korning Zethsen namely (1) a broad target group, (2) an asymmetrical sender-receiver relationship, and (3) mandatory genres. In the second part, we turn to the patient package inserts as a prototypical example of public communication, and illustrate how the common barriers suggested above manifest themselves in the case of these inserts. f. Genre-mediated communication g. Regulatory a~nity h. Functional genres re a. Like mass communication, public communication is designed to reach an extremely large part of the population. The size of the audience varies of course from document to document. For example in the case of tax forms, the potential receivers are all Danes with an annual income exceeding 20,000 DKK, whereas the number of people receiving a parking ¼ne is considerably lower (though it should be kept in mind that all Danes with a driving license constitute a potential target group). re b. As a natural consequence of large target groups (potentially the entire adult population in a country), the audience in public communication is extremely heterogeneous. For example, young and old, well-educated and uneducated people, experts and nonexperts all form part of the potential target group. re c. The sender-receiver relationship in public communication is often extremely asymmetrical. Generally speaking, the public...

...Introduction: International Trade policies deal with the policies of the national governments relating to exports of various goods and services in various countries either on equal terms and conditions or on discriminatory terms and conditions. Trade policies also aim at protecting the domestic industry from the competition of the advanced countries through imposing quotas and build competencies by providing subsidies. All countries are dependent on other countries for some products and services as no country can ever hope to be self-reliant in all respects. There are countries having abundance of natural resources like minerals and oil but are deficient in having technology to process them into finished goods. Then there are countries that are facing shortage of manpower and services. All such shortcomings can be overcome through international trade. Though it seems easy, in reality, importing goods from foreign countries at cheap prices hits domestic producers badly. As such, countries impose taxes on goods coming from abroad to make their cost comparable with domestic goods. These are called tariff barriers. Then there are non-tariff barriers also that serve as impediments in free international trade. Tariff Barriers Tariffs are taxes that are put in place not only to protect infant industries at home, but also to prevent unemployment because of shut down of domestic industries. This leads to unrest among the masses and an unhappy electorate which is not a favourable...

Great Barrier Reef

...The Great Barrier Reef Ecosystem Biotic, Abiotic and Human The ecosystem I have selected to review is that of the Great Barrier Reef. The Great Barrier Reef is located in north eastern Australia off the coast of Queensland. It's a nearly 2,000 kilometer long natural wonderland of coral and sea life. A natural coral reef is a very fragile environment with many biotic and abiotic components working in a perfect harmony. Because of this balance, reefs are susceptible to natural variances, outside pollutants and human recklessness. Map of the Great Barrier Reef Biotic components that make up the Great Barrier Reef include all of the living plants, the coral itself and a multitude of animals that live in the coral. Nonliving factors make up the Abiotic component of the Great Barrier Reef, these includes physical influences such as temperature of the water, lighting and nutrients found in the water (these nutrients feed the coral and fish) Both abiotic and biotic have to work together in order for the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef to survive. The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest reef system and can be seen from space Humans civilization has also impacted the reef ecosystem. Farm land that borders the Great Barrier Reef often uses fertilizer that gets washed into the sea killing sea life and coral. Factories near the reef can put off pollutants into the soil, air, rivers, and other water sources. Fishing if done improperly such as with...

Breaking the Language Barrier

... waste of time. She felt that she received little or no empathy from the hospital workers, even though she explained that she was anxious to know the diagnosis. She stood her ground and wouldn’t budge. In the end, the hospital called her daughter, who ironically spoke perfect English and assured her that the CAT scan would be found and even apologized for any inconvenience or suffering the incident may have caused. I can identify with this situation as my direct boss is Asian, and speaks very similarly to Amy’s mother. There was once a time when we were having a discussion on an ethical issue at the office, and the conversation escalated since I misunderstood what it was she was trying to say. I ended up getting defensive about the whole thing. I’ve learned to adjust and try to understand what it is she’s trying to say before I jump to conclusions. I find it very inspiring that given all these challenges with language barriers, and the fact that it’s widely known that Asian people are not known for their strengths in English, Amy Tan is a well versed and accomplished writer. Tan writes: “But to me, my mother’s English is perfectly clear, perfectly natural. It’s my mother’s tongue. Her language, as I hear it, is vivid, direct and full of observation and imagery. That was the language that helped shape the way I saw things, expressed things, made sense of the world.” Even though her though the sentences are abrupt, and not clearly stated to......

Language Barrier

... talking about by simply looking at their movements. Why are we interested in learning other language? Example for me for instance, I have a lot of Korean classmates and I often ask them stupid things or asking for translation for my stupid words like what is the Korean word of “I will kill you” or “Ugly” or some foul words. I find someone “cool” if he/she capable of speaking 2 or more languages. Well the fact that I too speak 3 languages makes me “cooler” (English, Filipino, Kapampangan and some Spanish words from Dora) ‘Limited conversation’ eloquently described the use of simple words and sign language to address the lack of shared language. McCarthy (2013) ‘Limited conversation’ means rather than talking in a deep specific way, the use of gestures and simple words are the simpler way. Being able to speak in different languages possess both challenges and opportunities for further more improving oneself. If you work in a business, being able to communicate with foreigners with complicated language (German, Japanese etc.) may impress them and you might win the deal. One tip that might be useful in communicating with is by looking for an expert who is capable of speaking and understanding the specific language or by asking someone who know whom to ask for an interpreter.

...Running head: REMEDIATING AGRICULTURAL WATER CONTAMINATION 1 Remediating Agricultural Water Contamination: Problem, Solution, and Barriers Paper Student Name COMM 2367 MWF 9:10 Instructor Name September 29, 2012 REMIEDIATING AGRICULTURAL WATER CONTAMINATION Remediating Agricultural Water Contamination: Problem, Solution, and Barriers Paper Problem Concerns about water pollution are generally focused towards sources that are highly visible and chemically oriented. However, the greatest causes of water contamination and quantity abuse in the United States come from agricultural production (United States Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], 2012a), which is defined as a nonpoint source that pollutes with nutrients. In 2011, nine of the top ten corn and soybean producing states were located in the 2 Midwest (United States Census Bureau, 2012), making this region the largest agricultural region by volume produced in the U.S., and thus prone to environmental problems with alarming consequences. In order to meet production demands while bound by constrained budgets, farmers often turn to unsustainable practices to ensure a yield. These include irrigating their fields with groundwater (the water from natural basins underneath the ground), applying excessive amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus as fertilizer, and plowing the land in a way that reduces quality of soil structure (United States EPA, 2012b). All of these factors directly result in the rapid depletion of...

... burden has increased slightly over the past 12 years from 10.8 hours per day in 1981 to 10.9 hours per day in 1995. Men’s average work burden presently is 7.8 hours a day, 3.1 hours less than that of women. Women’s participation in the informal sector has increased significantly in both urban and rural areas – for example vending, water fetching, petty trade liquor making and vegetable selling some of the more common employment ventures of women. In rural areas, the employment outside the household generally was limited to planting, weeding and harvesting. In urban areas, they were employed in domestic and traditional jobs, as well as in the government sector and mostly in low-level positions. Women has faced with a lack of services and infrastructure, rural women carry a great part of the burden of providing water and fuel for their households. In rural areas of Nepal, for example, women spend more than twice as much time fetching wood and water per week than men, while in they spend over eight times more than men on the same tasks. Girls in rural Malawi also spend over three times more time than boys fetching wood and water. Collectively, women from Sub-Saharan Africa spend about 40 billion hours a year collecting water....

... example of this is Facebook. Whenever I’m looking up products on my phone and go to Facebook I see ads related to the things I recently looked up. * Usage rate- . An example of usage rate based marketing is personal care. There are some customers who use a lot of personal care products whereas others do not use personal care products much. Thus depending on their usage the customers can be targeted. Another example of usage rate marketing is companies who sale a large quantity of products for a lower price the more that you buy. This is usually seen in the grocery stores in their products and food selections. * User status- An example of user status segregated marketing is justfab.com. The company offers a huge discount for signing up on your first item. Another example of user segregated marketing is chilis. They offer you a free appetizer for signing up on their email list to get future deals and specials they have delivered to your email. 6.

... Regular Classroom: Challenges and the Way Forward Fuandai, C. M experiences on account of physical, mental, emotional and other sundry disabilities, which may or may not be easily identified. Therefore, special needs children are special children who need to be given special attention in the classroom. Identification or Special Needs Children in the Classroom Since children with special needs come from different family backgrounds and mix-up freely with the other children with/without disability, some of them may pass through the school system without being identified. It is therefore imperative that efforts should be made to identify those with special needs. Some of the strategies include among others: • • • Observation especially those with special needs. This could be done by parents, teachers, siblings and classmates. By self-reporting by the child with special needs. By teachers made assessment tests. Categories of Special Needs Children From the definition of the special need child, many categories can be identified. For instance, the National Policy on Education categorized special needs children into three main categories. These are: 1. 2. 3. The Disabled: Under this category are people with impairment (physical, sensory) and because of impairment/disability cannot cope with regular school/class organization and methods without formal special education training. They include those who are visually impaired, hearing...

Barrier of Communication

...In this essay we will be discussing the four barriers in communication and also which barrier is the easiest to overcome and why it is easy to overcome. The first barrier of communication is the emotional barrier. This barrier can be displayed in either the person who is listening or the person who is talking. This barrier can be caused from when the speaker is inputting a personal spin on the discussion and causing the information to be allowed to have personal input instead of facts. The emotional barrier can also be a way for a person to help keep their self-esteem up. Some of the emotional barriers are depression and psychological problems. Some of the ways to help with addressing problems with the emotional barrier is using peer support systems and also pairing peer support systems and professional help from a psychologist. The second barrier of communication is physical barriers. The physical barrier is caused by environmental factors that make it difficult to communicate. Some of the physical barriers are a rigid chain of command, equipment malfunctions, and obstruction that will slow down or hinder the flow of information. Ways to help keep this barrier from being a nascence is to keep more officers closer together, keep equipment functioning properly, and make sure that all officers have the information that is needed to continue with the case. The third barrier of communication is semantic barrier. This barrier is caused by an inability to agree on meaning...

Green Barrier to China's Export

...Introduction As the world economy moves towards globalization, China has become more open to trade with other countries. Its international trade volume had risen from US$20.6 in 1978 to US$1,422 billion in 2005 (Wang & Liu, 2007). Since China’s exports mainly focus on the labor intensive and resource intensive industries, this exports pattern causes a serious environmental problem in China. Green barriers become a kind of emerging non-tariff barrier which is used for the developed countries to protect their production and economic development in recent years. The main forms of green barriers include green tariff and market access, green packaging and labeling requirements, green technology standards, Green health inspection system, environmental costs and green subsidy system (China west products, 2011). China’s agricultural, mechanical and electrical products are all facing green barriers, such as pollution, noise, safety standards and recycling requirements (Wang & Liu, 2007). How to cope with green barriers becomes the biggest challenge that China faces to continuously expand its exports. The purpose of this paper is to address and analyze the green barrier issue in China and to provide my ideas and suggestions on China’s exports related to green barrier. My following analysis is mainly based on the positive effects of green barriers and the specific example of China’s tea exports as well as three policies to cope with green barriers. I feel confident that you...

Barrier to Effective Communication

...In this paper I will be discussing the process of communication and its components discuss the difference between listening and hearing in communication, talk about the formal and informal channels of communication, talk about the different barriers to effective communication, and lastly discuss the strategies that may be implemented to overcome communication barriers. Communication is very crucial in the criminal justice system; it is the key element for success. From a rookie all the way up to a chief, every police officer must be able to speak, listen, and understand without excuses. There is no room for poor communication in the criminal justice system, because it is a waste of time and a waste of everyone's energy. An author named A. Richard in 1928 gave the best definition of communication he said, "Communication takes place when one mind acts upon its environment and that another mind is influenced. In that other mind an experience occurs just like the experience in the first mind, and is caused by that experience" (Wallace, 2009). Communication is not an isolated event, it is a process. It is five steps that the communication process contains and it is transmitting an idea, sending the idea through a medium, receiving the message, understanding the idea, and providing feedback to the message sender. The communication process becomes flawed, when failure occurs during any of the five steps, and the information that is at hand will not flow in a smooth and accurate...

...The several factors that make it very difficult for the competition to enter the soft drink market include Barriers to Entry: Cost of Establishment: Due to high capital intensive requirement to establish new bottling plant in Bangladesh, investors cannot entry into the market. This financial barrier can be a major barrier for new entrants Advertising Expenses Abdul Monem Limited spends about $51 million in five years to frequently advertise Coca Cola products through mass media.
