Analyzing Nora Ephron In the selection The Boston Photographs,” the author Nora Ephron shares one of her selections from her collection Scribble, Scribble: Notes, on the media (1978). This selection was a response to the “The Boston Photos,” that were captured by Stanley Forman, from the Boston Herald American who used a motor –driven Nikon set at 1/250, 15.6-s. Ephron tries to inform and persuade the readers on why those Boston photos should be publish and why all photos make great journalism and she accomplish those things. With that being stated, her thesis and purpose of this selection is that photojournalism is better than written journalism. Ephron explains and give her opinion and others opinion on why and why not these Boston photos that were token around the 1930’s should or shouldn’t be publish for the public eyes. The audience of this selection would be students that major in photography or journalism, and on the other hand people who read the newspaper on the daily. Ephron starts her selection off by giving the reader background information on the Boston photos. She did not leave the audience guessing on what she was talking about. These pictures were taking while a firefighter was trying to save a young women’s and child’s life during an apartment fire. The photographer, Stanley Forman did not know the ending outcome of that failed rescue. As he took the photos you see the firefighter grabbing the ladder as the young women and child were felled unto the ground. The young women failed to her death but saved the child life while he landed on her dead body these photos were not captured. Ephron explains that over four hundred newspapers across America carried those photos. And then went to the discussion on why she believes and why others don’t believe those photos should have…...

Analyzing a Job

...Analyzing a Job Melina Boggs January 30, 2012 HRM531 Christine Healy Analyzing a Jobs Determining how to create a new position within the business is commonly on the basis of overload for employee’s job functions or duties. Managers must recognize as times change the job functions change to meet new demands of job functions and duties. Recognizing the overload of duties and functions a manager may decide to split the one job into two thus, creating a new job position. Also managers must meet productivity measures. If the company is in need of meeting demands or increasing sales a new position may be needed to meet these demands. When a company such as Aflac needs associates to represent its company one would assume that either the company is in need of increasing its sales force in the community because of an increase in demand for insurance or the company must hire new faces to help promote on account of a decline in sales. When companies desire to hire during times of economic recession one may believe this company is expecting an increase of demand as a result of economic growth. “Fortune 500 companies had a $2 trillion hoard of cash as end-2010” (Bayer, 2010, p. 62). “Consumer demand growth is slack, unemployment remains high, and the housing market is flat” (Bayer, 2010, p. 62). Bayer states, “No corporate executive is going to invest into new......

Analyzing a Website

...Analyzing a Website Michael Buggs IT/236 3/10/2013 Daniel Liu Analyzing a Website The website I will analyze is The homepage is a little cluttered with too much information on the homepage. The fonts and color schemes are great because they used a black or dark grayish wood floor background. Every link they have on the homepage when you scroll over it has submenus to choose from which is awesome. As you make you way further down the homepage there are videos you can watch, see what’s trending on Facebook, they even have a place where you can sign up to win a scholarship for college. There are things that I like about this site. The first thing I like about this site is that you can customize certain shoes to your liking. For instance you can pick the new Kobe Bryant shoes (Kobe 8) and change the color of the shoes from the heel to the tongue of the shoe and even change the shoe strings before you order them. Another thing I like about is that you have a lot of shoes to choose from. They have everything covered from infants to grown people. When you select a submenu you want to go to they have options on the left side of the screen so you can narrow your choices down from prices, size, colors, and even how wide you want your shoe. I also like when you are looking for a shoe you can see how many shoes you want to see on the page at one time. It is 60, 90, or 120 items per page you can view. They way they used the fonts and color......

Analyzing Visuals

...Analyzing Visuals Advertisement: The advertisement shown by the Salvation Army is a depressing and a sad work of art. The first item that catches the viewer’s attention is the window placed in the top left corner. This gives an impression of hope for maybe; poverty would not be a life-sentencing situation to all mankind. Maybe, the families experiencing poverty will have a chance to view the modern world and experience the nature. In contrast to the main idea of hope, there are lines in the room, which may represent the days that they have experienced poverty and no one shall go through the same thing by the looks of their emotionless faces. Artwork: The Three Sphinxes of Bikini, is a beautiful and a dangerous work of art. The first thing that catches my eyes is the enormous explosions by the nuclear bombs in the United States. However, not every explosion look the exact same. The second explosive with the green color shade may represent the trees, a form of nature. The destruction of two hundred Micronesians, have a reason why the nature will be a huge factor. Referring back to nature, we can see the black color from the background that represents the increase in level of radioactivity, which could harm the country by being a major contributor to the world. Photograph: Kevin Carter’s, A Vulture watches a starving child, is a very emotional photograph. The point of view of the vulture symbolizes the dominance over the child who struggles to survive each day. It gives an......

...Analyzing Cynthia Fisher Grantham University In the article “Give Congress Some Credit for Tough Workdays” Congress is uplifted and spoke of as hard working Americans. Rose, the author, wants his audience believe in the good things that Congress does for their country. He explains that according to Public Policy Polling, “Congress is literally less popular than cockroaches and traffic jams” (Rose, 2014). “This is a bum rap” (Rose, 2014), he proclaims, denying that the reputation given has been misconstrued. Throughout the article Rose gives examples of the truth that Congressmen must deal with many issues in their field. “They take heat for nearly every vote, they find themselves on the wrong side of disagreeable and quite vocal dissidents” (Rose, 2014). While issues the author provide are true in facts, important information to why Public Policy Polling discovered the dishearten conclusions are not mentioned. Rose gives a classical argument filled with filled with substantial relevance to his claims. He also recognizes the weakness that “There are cockroaches in the Congress” (Rose, 2014), however, he feels the pros outweigh the cons in the debate. It is certain that the author is strongly sympathetic to the accusations portrayed over the Congress. He is clear and concise with giving reasonable points to the sacrifices that is made by these politics. The author speculates, “The overwhelming majority in Congress believe in what they are doing” (Rose, 2014). Rose wants......

Analyzing Risk

...Analyzing Risk November 11, 2013 Analyzing Risk This document will cover the definition and description of risk management. Topics covered include the philosophy, methodology, and the purpose of analyzing risk as well as development of a risk management plan and a procurement management plan. Identifying risk is the process of determining which risks may affect the progress of the project. The project stakeholders are usually included in the risk identification process. These stakeholders include the project manager, risk management experts, the project team members, and end users. Identifying risk is an iterative process because new risks can develop in a short period and should be integrated into the risk management plan. The process of risk planning involves following a series of steps that can be continually repeated in sequence throughout the life of a project. The first step in the process is risk planning. Risk Planning Risk planning begins with getting solid backing from the project stakeholders for the risk management approach (Marchewka, 2009). Support from the stakeholders will ensure that the resources required for a successful risk assessment are available to the project team. The second part of risk planning is to be prepared for the risks that are identified. The team must plan for the potential resources and tools required to perform proper project risk management. After the stakeholders have committed to the risk management approach, it is...

Analyzing Art

...Analyzing Art Josh Bedard Rasmusen College Submitted for G125/HUM2023 Section 14 Humanities - 2014 Winter Quarter Analyzing Art The piece of art that I chose was the Mona Lisa. This is one of the most well-known pieces of art in the world. It is also covered in mystery. The painting is one of a woman named Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo. She is sitting in a chair looking at the painter. She has a subdued look on her face, yet if you look closely at her eyes and lips she almost has a smirk on her face. One that is trying to say “if they only knew what this painting was about.” As if it was meant for as a clue for one or two few special people to see and not the everyday person. I like many people are not sure what the reasoning behind this painting is. The painting could have been for just a painting or as some people think it could have been for a whole other reason. Some think that it could be a female version of the painter himself or have hidden meaning within the painting. When looking at this painting I think there is a story behind it. I think her eyes tell you a story that many people may not see. I think that there is a reason for this painting that many have not looked at. It almost seems like she is trying not to laugh while posing for the painting. As if what she is wearing and the way she is posing is as if she is trying to trick everyone who will be looking at the painting. This painting show perfectly what......

Analyzing Messages

...Analyzing Messages COMM/470 Dwight Fryer University of Phoenix August 10, 2015 Dawn McDowell Analyzing Messages The skills of being able to write, receive, and send a message requires communication as well as awareness by the sender and receiver. The sender should always be aware of the tone of the message they are writing and if the point of the message is made clear. The receiver should be open to feedback, which is either negative or positive; they should also be able to distinguish the difference between them. When sending and receiving messages, communication is very important. How a message are created and received will determine how others will perceive it when they are reading. Raffoni (2009), "Framing is the essence of targeting a communication to a specific audience" (p. 2). A message is a type of communication between that expresses the sender's thoughts and opinions and occurs between a sender and receiver. After a message has been received and read the receiver should be able to understand what the message is telling or asking of them. Messages are created with the purpose of being persuasive as well as informational. Messages are used to explain information. They can also be used to persuade, inform, and or seek action from the receiver. Messages that are sent with the intention of altering the receiver's thoughts and opinions are persuasive. Whereas action Messages encourage the receiver to perform specifically. I will analyze three......

Analyzing a Job

...Analyzing a Job Misty Diaz HRM/531 Human Capital Management July 18, 2011 Carol Jackett Analyzing a Job This paper will discuss changes made to a job description that was acquired from for a Sales Representatives/Service at Catholic Healthcare West. A job description is used to describe in writing the overall summary of a task or job requirements ( Wayne F. Cascio,  2010). Many organizations use job descriptions to ensure that the employees are aware of what he or she will be entering into as far as position requirements. When many people look for employment, a job description can verify if he or she has the qualifications for the position prior to applying for the job. Organizations use job descriptions when recruiting for positions within or outside of the organization. Determining a Need to Create Job Position When reviewing the job description posted on for the Sales Representatives/Service, their need for this job position was urgent. The reasoning behind this was because the start date actually was for someone to start as soon as possible. I would have changed that for a start date to be tentative pending a review. The former makes the description of the job sound too desperate. This description could cause a multitude of unqualified people to apply for the position. As the mentality could be that the organization would take anyone for this position, thus possibly sounding unprofessional and undignified. ......

Just as the Company’s logo has changed over the years so has the company itself. The company has grown from a small town store to a well-known name globally.

The internet is a handy tool that allows a person to access any information he or she desires effortlessly, with little to no cost, depending upon what the person is looking for.

These dialogues have certain components that show the importance of the message and try to communicate that importance in an effective way.

Analyzing a Job

...As companies observe a need for a position to be filled, there are several areas that are considered prior to posting a job for potential job candidates. In this paper, we will discuss those aspects and select a job description to analyze. After analyzing the job description, we will rewrite the description based on the results of the analysis. Most jobs that are posted for individuals whom are seeking jobs are the result of a company trying to fill an opening that was developed by the company, or the company is seeking to replace human capital that may no longer be employed with the company. For a new position that is created, a company may begin planning a year ahead of the time the position needs to be filled. This strategy allows the company to observe staffing needs before the job opening is released. This type of strategic planning also provides an opportunity for the requirements of the job to be laid out as well. The requirements for a job are based on several aspects including the mental/physical tasks involved, how the job will be done, and the qualifications needed. These important factors are usually resolved by HR meeting with managers and employees to gain understanding of the potential job opening. In instances where an organization does not have employees, HR may choose to rely on descriptions utilized by other companies that have similar positions. In all cases, there is generally a timeframe that is guiding the process. This is because the......
