Lesson two states that the American culture relies heavily on media, and that is not as valuable to learning as literature. I completely agree. It stated that an American child from age five to age eighteen has viewed over 20,000 hours of television and electronic media. That is an abundant amount of time spent doing that opposed to spending time doing homework and studying. There needs to be more of a balance in the use of electronic curriculum and traditional curriculum.
I know that when I was a child, my family didn’t even have cable, so it was a real treat when I would get to watch a movie, or any television on the non-cable channels. My family pushed the importance of reading books, and figuring out the message in everything I read. Television and media is making us lazy. We rely too much on electronics to do the work for us. Television requires very little brain activity, which is why when we watch it, we tend to zone out, or easily forget what was just said. When watching television we only tap into the emotional side of our brain, and never think logically. Everything we learn from television goes into our short-term memory, but when we use traditional curriculum, we have to think and comprehend everything, which goes into our long-term memory. For me personally, I am a much better learner when I have to read and comprehend something on my own.
To summarize, people are becoming more dependent on electronics. If we start to think on our own, without the help of the media, we will become better cognitive thinkers and make our own decisions. We were created to think, therefore, if we eliminate a little more television and add more reading in our lives, our society would become more…...

...1. What might be the objective of a museum? Of a firm? Do they have the same objective? Why or why not? According to the text the function of a firm is “to purchase resources or inputs of labor services, capital, and raw materials in order to transform them into goods and services for sale” (Salvatore, 11). Ultimately, this is done to create a profit. The theory of the firm states that the objective of a firm is “to maximize the wealth or value of the firm” (Salvatore 12). A museum, on the other hand, is created to showcase historical pieces such as art of artifacts. None of it is done for the purpose of sale. However different the two organizations are, both seek to maximize the value of their respective agencies. A firm may do it to increase value for shareholders or to maximize profits. A museum may judge its value differently, perhaps in the pieces it acquires and their value as historical pieces rather than present day monetary value to sell. 5. According to Milton Friedman, “Business has only one social responsibility – to make profits (as long as it stays within the legal and moral rules of the game established by society). Few trends could so thoroughly undermine the very foundations of our society as the acceptance by corporate officials of a social responsibility other than to make as much money for their stockholders as possible.” Explain why you agree or disagree with such a statement.

...Quantitative Methods and Analysis Unit 1 DB Leonidas Murembya July 22, 2013 My first choice is the face-to-face data collection method.The population health surveys trend to rely on five main methods of data collection, the one that I am doing is the Face-to-Face interview. Most of them in this study chose to do the face-to-face interview. The face-to-face is also known as FTF. The face-to-face interview method was done on the Population Surveys of Children’s Health and Wellbeing: Parental Views on Data Collection Content and Methods. (Waters, E., Davis, E (Nee Maher) & Mehmet-Radji, O., 2005-206). The face-to-face interview method could be done one on one or in a group setting. This study had been done on a group from Australian families with the children ranging from zero to twelve years of age. The face-to-face interview method is on their health status in which it has four subgroups for it, one is the health and wellbeing, the second one is the growth and development, third one is the mortality, the fourth one is morbidity and disability, as well as the fifth one is the safety and security. However, other professionals, such as doctors, do other studies and then there are also other kinds of face-to-face interview methods as well depending on what they are looking for in the child. There are several pros and cons for a face-to-face interview method. The cons would be that you would have a variety of communication (technology) (Editorial Board 2012). Then you......

...the transmitting and acceptances of things like thunderclouds and grass and the clean granite of reality. Art is both love and friendship and understanding: the desire to give. It is not charity, which is the giving of things. It is more than kindness, which is the giving of self. It is both the taking and giving of beauty, the turning out to the light of the inner folds of the awareness of the spirit. It is a recreation on another plane of the realities of the world; the tragic and wonderful realities of earth and men, and of all the interrelations of these." — Ansel Adams, Love, Art, Life, Spirit, Light, Beauty, World "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." — Aristotle Part 1 -How did you gain an awareness and understanding of art and art forms?

During the company's financial year (FY) which ended September 2012, revenue increased 3.4% over FY2011 to approximately $42.278 billion. The operating profit for FY2012 was just over $9 billion, an increase of 15.4%. Finally, the net profit was approximately $5.682 billion, an increase of 18.2% (Marketline, 2013). During the most recent recession, consumer spending has tightened. Unemployment reached a peak of 10% in October of 2009 and is still at 7.4% for July (Department of Labor, 2013). With many people out of work, people have been holding on to what little discretionary spending they still have. However, even with the difficult economic times, the Walt Disney Company is still continues to seeing the rise in profits. While some of the company's movie releases underperform, overall the mixture of media holdings such as ESPN and ABC, the global theme parks, and other holdings, the public keeps the cash coming.

Bible 104 Db 1

...When people approach the Bible without any concern for the historical-cultural context, their interpretation of what is written can be seriously misunderstood and lead them to form opinions and ideas other than what was originally intended. There is the danger of interpreting passages far too literally and missing the meaning that it holds for us today. Slavery is an excellent example of this. There are numerous references to slavery being acceptable in the bible. This was, unfortunately, a way of life then. However, that doesn’t mean that we should employ slavery, in any form, today, just because it was acceptable back then. In the Song of Solomon 4:1-4, Solomon proceeds to compliment his love with the following words: 1Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from Mount Gilead. 2 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone. He was, stating that her hair was as beautiful as that of the long, flowing black hair of the goats as the sun shines off of their coats. At a time when dental hygiene wasn’t really a concern, this was quite a compliment, as he was commenting on how white and straight her teeth were. If someone were to comment on the state of our teeth today or refer to your hair as being that of a goat’s, it would be considered quite rude! From a modern aspect, his “compliments” don’t seem to get much better: 3 Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon; your mouth is lovely. Your......

...Group 1 Module In this week’s readings the author explains the nine different characteristics of research in Chapter one. The nine different characteristics includes a clear purpose, detail, a plan, ethical standards, limitations, analysis for the decision maker’s needs, findings, conclusion, and reflection on the experience (Cooper & Schindler, 2014). The reader will learn of a workplace and a biblical example of applying the characteristics of research by using the what a manager should look for in research that is found in the text in this week’s readings. The workplace that the reader will learn about is Paoletta Counseling Services. The problem is that a client is having problems with the insurance company covering the therapy sessions. The manager is counting on her administrative assistant to research and find out why the insurance is not covering the therapy session and to report the findings back to the manager. The manager would also like the administrative assistant to come up with a plan to use to make sure this does not happen again with other clients because when the client is having issues with their insurance then the agency does not get pay, which causes the agency to lose money. The agency is a privately own agency so they cannot afford to lose money.

...Introduction to Operating Systems and Client/Server Environments IT140-1601A-01 Unit 1 – Discussion Board 2 January 6, 2016 Operating Systems Operating Systems (OS) are the key to managing your computer’s software, hardware, processes and memory (GCF Global, 1998-2016). Without it your computer wouldn’t be able to run various programs that need access to volatile information. As technology advances, we need various OSs that can handle the newer computers. Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X and Linux are OSs used on personal computers today and now use a GUI (graphical user interface) where everything can be managed using a click of the mouse (GCF Global, 1998-2016). Back in the old days computers used a CLI (command-line interface) where the user had to physically type in commands using the keyboard in order to pull up information. Icons and Images weren’t developed for use until later on so all you would see on the screen is text with CLI OSs. There are multiple versions of OS because every information systems and processor architecture requires various specifications (Byron, 2009). Most people are familiar with Windows which was created in the mid-1980s by Microsoft (MS). We have all had different versions including (but not limited to) Windows 98, 2000, XP, 7, 8 and Vista.

...Discussion Board #1: Narcissism Discussion Board #1: Narcissism In many aspects of our lives we feel the need to be appreciated for the things that we do (Fisher 2012). Some of us desire this feeling so much that we become consumed by it. Greek mythology tells us of a story regarding Narcissus, who was so vain that it caused him to fall in love with his self or his image. From this story we derive the personality characteristic known as narcissism. According to Robins & Judge (2009, p.112) “narcissism describes a person who has a grandiose sense of self-importance, requires excessive admiration, has a sense of entitlement, and is arrogant.” This personality attribute may have impacts on an individual’s life in many different ways, but when it comes to the workplace there are certain negatively defined impressions. It is not abnormal for an individual to desire for their efforts to accomplish something and if not we may even feel that we have failed (Fisher 2012). “Narcissists overestimate their own accomplishments and seem pretentious; although self-enhancement bias is common, narcissism is characterized by extreme levels of this bias” (Byrne & O’Brien 2014, p.244). These behaviors, especially when found in a leader, can prove to be most damaging to their underlings or even their peers. There is the tendency for narcissists to be exploitive, selfish and even feel as though the existence of others is merely for their benefit (Robins & Judge 2009, p.112). As......

...ECON224- Unit 1 DB Cheri Bolin July 19, 2011 Proponents of free market systems argue that free enterprise leads to more efficient production and better response to changing consumer preferences. Others point to the fact that markets are not perfect. Before beginning my classes, I really hadn’t thought about the economy other than the hardships it has brought my family and I over the past several years. After completing Microeconomics I had a bigger picture of the “small” part of our economic system. The inner workings of our economy and its effects on our country as a whole, somewhat fascinated me. I really do not know much about free markets or free enterprise but what I do know, I do have an opinion on. I agree yes- free markets are not perfect but with that said, I believe that is why they work so well. Now, there are some good and bad qualities of a free market and enterprise, just like everything else in this country. In my opinion, other markets and enterprises, such as protected or forced markets are incorrect. When individuals put decisions, basically our well-being, in the hands of our government and politicians, they are asking to be told what, when and how to live their lives. Now don’t get me wrong, I do believe that there are some great laws, we have in place but most of them are downright ignorant. If we had the choice as individuals whether we would prefer a free market and enterprise, I am sure that 75% of the U.S. would be all for it. The ability......
