Louis CK’s interview with Conan O’Brien on The Late Show, consisted of Louis going into great detail of his hatred for the culture of smartphones and why he would never get one for his kids. He says smartphones are the reason kids today are meaner. Louie also explains the negative emotional effects of they have on adult; using them to avoid confronting negative emotions. Louis argument is very well said; he provides a vast amount of explanation, that anyone who owns a smartphone can relate to, whether they want to or not.
The first stance Louis takes, explaining his hatred for smartphones, is how smartphones are making kids meaner. He states that at some point kids are going to be mean or say something mean to some one, but in seeing the reaction of the person they gain a sense of empathy. That if the child had done the same thing using their phone, they otherwise wouldn’t learn. Also in doing that they might find some sort of pleasure in making someone feel bad. In Louis explanation of this he credits himself with a strong use logos, by playing out a situation that shows a shows the negative effect of smartphone can have o a developing young mind. Also using ethos by using the audiences own sense of empathy to relate to the lack there of empathy, in these kids using smartphones. His statement makes since, because we can all agree that it’s a lot easier to intentionally offend or verbally attack someone through the screen of you phone or computer, than it is face to face. Louis next point that he makes is how adults use smartphones as a distraction to avoid confronting negative feelings. He says, these phones are taking away the ability for people to be comfortable being themselves with out doing anything. He says, “Because underneath everything in your life there is that thing, that empty—forever empty. That knowledge that it's all for nothing and that you're…...

Here There Be Tygers

...Literary essay “Here There Be Tygers” ”The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn” – Marcus Tullius Cicero The school is supposed to be a place where children can let their imagination flow. But in the school of the 1960´s, rules, authorities, discipline and the promise of physical punishment to those who did not obey, subjugated children’s imagination. Stephen King’s short story from 1968 “Here There Be Tygers” is about a strict teacher and a young boy whose imagination comes to live in the shape of a fearsome tiger, and challenges the order and the strict discipline of a US primary school. The story is narrated from the main character Charles´ perspective. The narrator is a third person, non-omniscient narrator, which means that we see the world trough Charles´ eyes, from a child’s perspective. This signifies that we see things that happen, the way he experiences it. To Charles, the tiger, which he encounters in the men’s bathroom, is as real as Miss Bird. Charles feels that his teacher, Miss Bird, is hostile towards him, the narrator says: ”She meant to pounce. Charles thought that miss bird was about to find out what pouncing was really about”(p.159, l.23-25). This displays Charles´ apprehension towards miss Bird because, from his perspective, it feels like his teacher really is attacking him. From a grown ups perspective, miss Birds behaviour would not seem as aggressive as it does to Charles. Charles has a very......

Here There Be Tygers

...“Here There Be Tygers” By Stephen King “Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.” (Albert Einstein). This is just one out of Albert Einstein’s many famous quotes about imagination. Einstein was against society and its way to learn and educate children. Now at days society has high expectation that we follow the rules and focus on getting good grades. Yes, knowledge is off cause a good thing and we need that to learn and evolve to be mature adults. Knowledge will get you from A to Z, but imagination can take you wherever you like to go. Off cause we have to follow the set of rules society makes, but that doesn’t give them the right to tell us what to do or interfere in our naturally evolvement. ”Here there be tygers”(1968), is a short story written by Stephen King. The short story is about how a boy’s imagination and free will, can lead a rebellious strike against modern society. The story is narrated from Charles’ perspective and the narrator is a third person, nom-omniscient narrator. The story takes place in the Acorn Street Grammar School. We can’t be sure about the historical time, but two posters on the bulletin board in the hall within the school indicate that the historical time might take place around the 1970’s in USA. The woodsy owl made its first appearance in 1971 and officer friendly was an officer in the U.S Marine Corps who travelled around to schools in the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Within the school, the story especially......

...Drug Addiction Eucharia Onwubuya NRS 427V Teaching Experience Paper Grand Canyon University October 4th , 2015 It is a mystery how people become addicted to drugs. Usually it is assumed that drug abusers do not have morals or willpower and claim to have the ability to stop using drugs by simply changing their lifestyle. Drug addiction is a complicated disease, to quit just by changing, or having good intentions is quite unlikely. When drugs enter the body they change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is challenging, especially for people who say they can do it easily. The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) offers these statistics. More than 20 million Americans over the age of 12 said they drove a car after drinking alcohol at least once in 2009. The NSDUH estimated that about 30.2 million people over 12 drove while intoxicated at least once in 2009. More than 4.6 million emergency room visits were related in some way to drugs in the United States (DAWN, 2015). These are alarming numbers and eye opening; which leaves people wondering how easy it is to acquire drugs in the U.S. The feeling of intense pleasure makes it extremely difficult to pull away from drugs, this will then lead to long term addiction. Mentioned later in the paper, long term drug addiction can lead to future brain damage. Due to the teaching summary provided, understanding the connection between drug addiction and brain damage became very evident. Information......

...(usually softens) the rhetorical effect (“die” vs. “pass away” vs. “in a better place”). Different choices of language signal different implications and underlying philosophies. Euphemisms tend to distance the audience from the subject, using more vague and imprecise language (“collateral damage” vs. “unintended killings,” “got the better end of the deal,” vs. “swindled the other guy”). Paraphrase: An alternative phrasing of an author’s original language. Don’t paraphrase simply to pretend an author’s arguments or content are your ideas, or to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Instead, paraphrase in order to reveal something that wasn’t obvious in the author’s original words. Effective paraphrases make the implicit explicit (“What she’s saying here is...”) Always give credit to your sources, even when you paraphrase. Summary: Similar to paraphrase (in that you choose your own words to describe an author’s argument), except in a summary, you compress large portions of text into a much smaller space. You’ll need to choose specific things to focus on in a summary. You aren’t trying to restate every claim and every piece of evidence. Instead, choose smaller parts of the text that are relevant to your work and explain how you want your reader to understand them. Quotation: A rhetor’s exact language reproduced with precise accuracy (no words changed!), attributed to them, and presented in quotation marks.

...Darnell Clayton Business Report #4 Current Issues in Organizational Leadership July 28, 2011 Mr. Mike Studdard asked us to write a paper about where we think we will be and what our goals are in the next five years. It’s so interesting because instantly I focus on tangible things such as money and nice house. I grew up poor, and not knowing when my next meal was. I had to learn that the meaning of hard work was something that was not a privilege but something that was too be expected. However I grew up in a household where education was never very important. Maintaining a good credit score, finding a nice apartment, and getting a halfway descent tax refund what was my life was about. However when I think about what I want for the next five years, I think about the goal that has driven me for the past few years. I have always said that I wanted to make six figures by the time I was thirty, and I am nowhere near close. Some may find that goal as selfish, but my goal in life has always been to make as much money as possible to help as many people as possible. I have always been comfortable living in an apartment, but I have always said that I wanted to put my mother and my grandmother in a nice house. My grandmother has always wanted a nice kitchen and my mom does some unorthodox things to get money. My goal in life is be exactly the opposite of where I came from but ultimately never forget where I came from. It is astonishing to me how my professor does so...

...Demonstrative Communication Paper BCOM/275 Demonstrative Communication Paper Communication is often thought as strictly verbal and people tend to forget that they can communicate in different ways rather than verbally. Nonverbal communication is the other half of communication that includes the elements of facial expressions, tone of voice, hand gestures, body language, and the most important element: eye contact. The unique aspect of nonverbal communication is that this type of communication occurs with friends, family, and even strangers. People may not be aware that they are performing any of these actions, as they communicate with people by making unintentional eye contact in passing. Nonverbal communication is also categorized as demonstrative communication. Demonstrative communication between people can be positive as well as effective because people who use proper communication methods are ensuring the speaker that listening is occurring. When used incorrectly, or to be rude or unreceptive to someone else’s message, the results of demonstrative communication will be ineffective and negative for both the sender and receiver. Demonstrative communication, much like verbal communication is broken down into positive, negative, effective, and ineffective. A prime example of how demonstrative communication can be both positive and effective is during a presentation either at school or at the workplace. When the sender of the message, or presenter, is......

...eventually disappear. Extinction is a behavioral strategy that does not promote desirable behaviors but can help to reduce undesirable behaviors. Punishment Punishment is a control device employed in organizations to discourage and reduce annoying behaviors of employees. OBSERVATIONAL LEARNING Observational learning results from watching the behavior of another person and appraising the consequences of that behavior. It does not require an overt response. When Mr. X observes that Y is rewarded for superior performance, X learns the positive relationship between performance and rewards without actually obtaining the reward himself. Observational learning plays a crucial role in altering behaviors in organizations. Cognitive Learning Here the primary emphasis is on knowing how events and objects are related to each other. Most of the learning that takes place in the classroom is cognitive learning. Cognitive learning is important because it increases the change that the learner will do the right thing first, without going through a lengthy operant conditioning process. LEARNING THEORY AND ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR The relevance of the learning theories for explaining and predicting of organizational behavior is marginal. This does not mean that learning theories are totally irrelevant. Learning concepts provide a basis for changing behaviors that are unacceptable and maintaining those behavior that are acceptable. When individuals engage in......
