Profile

...English 134 24 January 2012 The Man Behind the Camo, by Kelly McBride, is a profile that focuses on the author’s younger brother, Scott, and his experiences with the concept of manhood. McBride goes about this by describing past events like childhood traditions and activities that she shared with Scott, and then providing her own commentary and thoughts on the matter. McBride’s detailed recounting of her personal experiences helps make this piece a well-written profile because it effectively gives the reader insight into Scott’s childhood as well as their relationship as brother and sister. This firsthand source (memories written onto paper) helps the reader to feel as if they were really there, and makes them more aware of what the actual events were like and how they helped McBride come to the conclusions that she did about Scott and masculinity. The author uses both quotes and detailed imagery to portray her brother in this profile, a combination that both appeals to the senses and works very well to describe events. McBride uses quotes to emphasize or confirm the memory that she is currently describing, which helps to lend the reader a hand and give them a real example of the subject while helping to align the author’s train of thought and the story. For example, when McBride is recalling Scott’s first venture into manhood in the form of football she quotes him saying “’All of my friends were doing it that year. Football is just kind of the ‘guy’ thing to......

Speaker Critique

...I have watched many speakers while in the military. There are many times that I come out of the room and I don’t remember the things that they had talked about because of the way they had put it out. It was 1 o’clock in the afternoon at the Sky Warrior Theatre where the audience was all military. It was a mandatory training that we have called Sexual Assault Prevention Response. The speaker was a spokesperson from The Naval Criminal Investigative Service. It was a big crowd and there was a microphone that was set up. I noticed that even though there was a microphone in place that he did not use it to his advantage. The theatre was packed and the speaker did not go on the stage. He stayed in one spot at the bottom left part of the theatre, where it was really hard for people in the back to see him. The speaker talked about avoiding dangerous situations, being aware of your surroundings and trusting your instincts. He needed to work on his opening because he just introduced himself and went straight to the points. He didn’t really add anything interesting on the introduction, so I knew it was going to be a long boring afternoon. He talked about how sexual assault is never accepted anywhere and that offenders are held accountable. He talked about one of the common factors dealing with sexual assault is alcohol. He used a PowerPoint to show the information, which was very detailed and didn’t have that much pictures. He was also just reading off the slides, but explains the......

Speaker Paper 6

...Some One Kin 4515 July 2013 Speaker Paper Another exciting week of speakers in Kin 4515 that kept the classes attention. This has to be the first time I actually had a Skype speaker keep my attention and was able to relate me to me without even seeing their face. The four speakers this week all had great things to say and very good advice for prospective students looking to start working when they graduate. The first speakers of the week were Jayson Santos and Blair Napolitano. Jayson and Blair are part of LSU’s compliance staff. At first they jokingly described themselves as the “police” of the coaching staff and athletes. The reason why Jayson and Blair said this is because they have to make sure that everyone in the athletic department are following procedures off the field according to the NCAA. Blair has been with LSU’s compliance department for about eight years now. She says her main focus is player’s initial eligibility to play sports at LSU. Blair says she works with high school kids. Blair helps the high school students make sure during their four years of high school they take their core classes. There are sixteen core classes these students have to take in order for them to be eligible to play sports at LSU. From there, Blair evaluates the student’s transcripts and makes sure that the students are prepared to come to LSU once they graduate high school. As for Jayson, he went to college initially to go to law school but decided against going to law school......

Influential Speaker Commentary

...Influential Speaker Commentary Political views aside, most can agree that Barack Obama is an influential and very effective speaker. He is able to inspire masses of people with his simple, yet articulate use of words. He always speaks with a sense of smooth confidence, yet never near the spectrum of arrogance. Most importantly, he is so effective because he accurately knows his audience before performing the speech. Obama is truly talented in his ability to make people identify with him, because the audience feels as if he walked a mile in their shoes. Interestingly, Obama is rarely seen reading a speech. The president is known to read from tele-prompters however the audience is unable to tell. It appears to the audience that Obama creates every speech on the spot, however he is somehow able to convey every point with extreme clarity, and free from any pauses. It is clear that Obama is a naturally talented orator, and that he has honed his skills through practice at Harvard, and throughout his political career. No matter what side of the political arena one may be on, seeing Obama speak live is a compelling experience, more so than past presidents. He is able to instantly connect with the audience with clarity and conviction. Obama is known by many as the people’s president, with his goal of strengthening the middle class, and opposing trickledown economics. He effectively communicates with the lower and middle class demographic because he radiates a feeling of......

Acoustical Enterprises makes commercial audio soundproofing material at a company in Echo, South Dakota. The Union filed an appeal with the NLRB requesting authorization as the private bargaining representative of Acoustical manufacture and maintenance workers On December 20.

The Board has petition a cross-application for implementation of its charge.

Speaker Evaluation

...Speaker Evaluation I attended “The Speak Up!!” event at the little theatre in Chabot College. It was on May 15, 2014 at 6:00pm. The Chabot College Forensics Team hosted this event. The stage where the speakers were performing was in the center of the theatre. There were rows of seats surrounding three sides of the stage. The audience was mostly a young crowd of Chabot students. The audience seemed to enjoy the speeches. The Duo Interpretation of Literature speech seemed to be the crowd’s favorite. There were a total of six speeches through out the event. My favorite speech was delivered by Franciska Karpovich. She delivered a Persuasive Speech about Gender Shaming. The speech focused on “Slut Shaming”. She spoke about the psychological effects of Slut Shaming. The purpose of her speech was to persuade her audience to boycott stores like Victoria Secret and Abercrombie and Fitch for over sexualizing young girls. She also suggested for schools to start teaching boys how to treat girls. Karpovich claims that girls are bullied for drinking too much and that they are embarrassed of their sexuality. She used current issues about boys taking advantage of girls while they were intoxicated as evidence to support her claims. She talked about people taking sexual assault as a joke because the victims are accused of provoking the boys. According to Korpavich, people think promiscuous girls are worthless. She blames the media for sexualizes girls and eventually leads to slut shaming.......

Authentic Speaker

...How to Become an Authentic Speaker http://hbr.org/2008/11/how-to-become-an-authentic-speaker Why sometimes we feel everything is right, but the speech is still not authentic? The reason lies in the relation between gestures and words. People’s natural and unstudied gestures are often indicators of what they will think and say next. Thus rehearsing specific gestures one by one and employing gesture or even slightly after speaking the associated words would let audience feel that something’s wrong—that the speaker is inauthentic. Then how to prepare an authentic speech and rehearse those gestures? Four underlying aims (intents): 1. To be open with your audience: Try to imagine giving your presentation to someone with whom you’re completely relaxed, or even do this in real. 2. To connect with your audience: Think about wanting—needing—to engage the listeners. Imagine that a young child you know well isn’t heeding you. To capture his attention, you simply do what feels natural and appropriate. You increase the intensity or volume of your voice or move closer. 3. To be passionate about your topics: Focus not on what you want to say but on why you’re giving the speech and how you feel about that. Let the underlying emotion come out in every word you deliver during this round of rehearsal. 4. To listen to your audience: Begin thinking about what your listeners are likely to be feeling when you step up to begin your presentation. As you practice, imagine......

A Great Speaker

...A Great Speaker Teresa Spracklin Argosy University A Great Speaker I have chosen to write about Martin Luther King Jr. He was a true fighter, seeking equality for all mankind. In his speech titled, “I Have a Dream!” given on Aug 28, 1963, he states, This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to the South. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day ('I have a dream', New African, 2004, par. 7).  He wrote a very powerful speech, but this passage is one of my favorites. I like how he talks about how one day we all can share this great nation as one. He talked about how one day his children will be equals, and how no one will be set apart. His ideas and his dream was shared in a time that was really struggling. I wish I could have seen and heard his speech. I have watched it on television, but I bet it was more powerful in person. If I understand the question “Which is the in-group…,” then I would have to say that at the time, the “in-group” would have been the “whites.” At the time of Martin Luther King Jr’s speech, whites were feeling that they were above the blacks. Whites felt that the blacks were inferior, uneducated, non-deserving of respect, and they did not belong...

In one instant as kid I decided to take her car for a joy ride in the middle of the. On my way home I decided to take the 1996 honda civic off-road. Before I can get ten feet from the concrete the car is stuck teetering. I go home and try to find a way to bring it back before she goes to work. Being a kid I was worried about getting in more trouble then I could hand so I grab some tools and try to pop the steering colum to make it seem like it was stolen.

Speaker Observation

...APPENDIX: REPORT Dear Professor Miller, What follows is the report you requested on a possible speaker for the event that EU Business School will be hosting. After viewing various speakers’ presentations I have decided to analyze Noreena Hertz’s talk, “How to use Experts” in more depth. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate why Noreena Hertz is the right candidate to talk at the event. In my opinion Noreena Hertz is a very good speaker. This can be shown by analyzing her Ted Talk in light of the different parameters. Noreena is clear, complete and cordial. She makes use of good language and is articulate. Her message comes across very clearly. Even though she uses complex words she explains everything very well and keeps the audience interested. In fact, even without visual aids the message is conveyed in an interesting way. She makes good use of pauses which allows for the information to sink in. Throughout the talk she also uses tripling when giving examples, which explains the context well. Her use of repetition works well to enforce the idea of the problem that she is addressing. Although she only smiles occasionally her attitude is warm and inviting. Noreena has a slight natural crouch, however her stance is open and she leans forward to engage with the audience. Her tone of voice varies in different parts and she uses this well to stir emotion within the audience in order to get her points across. She makes good eye contact with the audience. In terms...

Hospitality Speaker

...Guest Speaker Paper The guest speaker, Dean, gave me a lot of knowledge and insight into the event management and convention center business. He is very successful and managed to make his way through the ranks all the way up to a manager position. The OCC, which he works for is one of the largest and most successful convention centers in the nation. The OCC is the second biggest convention center behind Chicago in the United States. The location of central Florida and these huge buildings help OCC be in high demand for events. The Sears Tower would be able to fit lying down inside of the west building. The North/South building is smaller and shaped more like a box but still is large enough to host several events at the same time. Orlando is considered a first tier city. A first tier city is a city that is able to accommodate 30,000 people or more for an event. Other examples of first tier cities are Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Atlanta. The OCC is also a nonprofit business. It infuses the local economy with new money and expanding business. According to Dean they have only made a profit on two events the entire time he has worked there. The energy bill alone for a year is nine million dollars, with some of the high traffic months costing one million. Dean went through how he started out as a security guard to the position he is at currently. One of the things he stressed is you will mess up but make sure to learn from your mistakes. He also walked us through......
