Benefits of Watching TV
While Steve John used a lot of different examples in his “Watching TV Makes You
Smarter”, he in fact did so to show that there are many evidences to prove his claim, and as long as the readers have watched at least two shows that he talks about, the point is quite clear that the TV series industry has well improved its role in exercising our mind in the last few decades.
John’s work, however, bewilders readers easily with its novel graphs and manifold examples of outdated shows. With his new way of illustration, readers may have to be familiar with TV shows; how scenes take place at various times and places have clues to the one main story line; how the seemingly unrelated plots interwoven together to make a bigger and more profound story line. But if read closely the graphs are not hard to understand, and while Johnson clearly isn’t writing to people who don’t watch TV, the shows he brings up would be nonsense to the group, and on top of that it is not necessary for the readers to even know the shows he talks about, if the readers can pay most of their attention on structure change of the shows, and not the contents of them.
As Johnson putted “ Over the last half-century, programming on TV has increased the demands it places on precisely these mental faculties. ” According to Johnson, these faculties are attention, patience, retention, and the parsing of narrative thread, and they are the cognitive benefits ascribed to reading. So examining whether watching TV shows have improved these faculties will show the credibility of Johnson’s work. (280)
Johnson himself admitted “There may indeed be more “negative messages” in the media sphere toad.” The truth is that conventional views about the TV industry are pretty much accord, that the violence and nudity…...

...of the long-term effects of domestic violence are anxiety, chronic depression, chronic pain, panic attacks, sleep disorders, suicide attempts. Women of domestic violence are called battered; they suffer from physical and mental problems. Most women who are abused feel it is their fault. They believe they are to blame for the abuse, that they caused it, and that they can somehow stop it. They often experience anxiety, tension, low energy, insomnia, change in appetite and physical aches and pains such as headaches. These symptoms are not necessarily caused by physical injury. Often, women are abused feel ashamed of what’s happened. Shame often prevents them confiding in others and keeping their details of abuse away or not wanting to say anything to legal authorities and medical personnel. Women who are abused frequently experience difficulty in expressing anger related to their abuse. Some may turn this anger toward themselves, harming themselves. It’s common for women to fear their abuser; they fear that they will repeat their abusive behavior and fearing that if they leave it will get worse or fearing that he may kill her and/or harming their children. Children often suffer some of the same symptoms, as the abused parent. Often in domestic violence, there is no cure for the abuser and victim; however, there is always help for this crime. Domestic violence programs and counseling is both good for the abuser and victim, but if for some reason the violence still continues.......

Anything for Love

...purchased some expensive combs for Della’s hair. Della has wanted these combs for a while. Della still loved them and knew once her hair grew back she would be able to wear them. It was at this moment that Della remembered that she still had the gift for Jim. You could sense her excitement in the tone of her voice, and she yelled out for Jim to open her gift now. The biggest shock of the story was after Jim opened his gift. We then realize that both Della and Jim have sold their prized possessions to be able to afford a nice gift for the other. In the end, “Their Christmas gifts are compromised, but they realize they have the best gift of all--each other.” (Magill, 1990) The story ‘The Gift of Magi” is a great reminder of what true love really is. “Besides irony and surprise endings, O. Henry's stories focus on the triumph of the human spirit despite the web of uncontrollable circumstances in which his characters find themselves ensnared.” (Sayers, 2001) He also does a great job of keeping the story flowing and interesting. In the end we are reminded that love has no monetary value. We get so caught up in buying nice gifts and believing that love has a monetary value but Della and Jim learned that the sacrifice each other made meant more to them than any gift they could have ever bought.....

...and allowed the reader to connect them to themselves. No matter what piece of work it was, conflicts exist; without conflicts the story would be dull and uninvolved. A major conflict throughout the novel dealt with Elinor. Elinor had gone through a lot, but never once did she leave her guard down. She put up a front and acted like everything was okay, when in reality she battled against her own heart and mind, and was constantly trying to figure out what to do. Inside of her body there was a raging war, while externally, she acted like she had it all together. For example, Elinor was told that Mr. Edward Ferrars was already engaged to Lucy, when Elinor really wanted him. “Mr. Edward Ferrars, it seems has been engaged above this twelvemonth to my cousin Lucy” (Sense and Sensibility 176). Elinor was devastated, but did not really show much emotion and did not go all around sharing her problems. Although Elinor tried to keep it together through all her conflicts, Marianne, on the other hand, shared all her conflicts and allowed the world to see what was going on in her life. Marianne had conflicts involving Willoughby. Marianne fell in love with Willoughby, and when he went off to London for business, she was absolutely devastated. Conflict was internally happening Marianne was not sure if she would survive without her love. Conflicting feelings were occurring throughout the story in how she should react and feel towards him. Later on, she discovers that although she had loved......

Do We Really Know Anything? really know anything? With reference to Descartes’ first meditation justify your answer in full and respond to possible objections. A belief is any opinion or any view whether you are committed to the view or not. Thus, if you know something, you are entitled to believe in it. The subjective nature of knowledge partly is based on the idea that beliefs are things that individuals have and those beliefs are either justified or not justified (Pardi, 2011). However, Descartes notices that over the course of his life, he has from time to time accepted false beliefs and the falsity of these beliefs have influenced other beliefs. Thus, Descartes aim in his first meditation is to find out if what we know is truly correct (Blackburn, 1999:15). Once we have figured out what beliefs are beyond any possible doubt, it is suggested that we can use reason to deduce the rest of what is knowable (Pardi, 2011). There are three conditions when one can say they know something is true (Pardi, 2011). Firstly, you believe in something, secondly, it is in fact true and lastly you are justified in believing a statement is true. Of course it is possible that there are no complete unshakeable truths, it is also possible that we might discover that our prejudices cannot be detached or that the beliefs we think are our grounds for all our other beliefs are not really ultimate at all. For this reason, it is why rationalist say that knowledge comes from within, the only beliefs we can really......

...geared up and blown by bards numerically. At this point bards have two things: mobility and utility. Everyone seems to complain about bard mobility like it's too much but similar reactions could be thrown at summoner mobility; once their dots are up a good majority of the summoners damage is taken care, and they can ruin2 while they need to move. Summoners suffer a minimal damage loss as a result of mobility, but nobody seems to complain about them like they do about bards.As someone who raids at a fairly decent level, with two bards in the group, I can attest that we didn't opt for a second bard because of the mobility, it was the utility. A second bard gives your healers an (arguable) bottomless manapool, and allows your caster dps to really flex (battle voice foe's requiem) during periods where high raid damage is necessary. All the mobility in the world is going to make the dreadnaughts in turn 4 die faster. You might say that Bard utility is overpowered, but I would insist that you take a look at the broad spectrum. 99 out of 100 raids are coming in with 2 bards or 2 caster dps. You can adequately clear all five turns with either a 2 bard or 2 caster dps setup. The same cannot be said for melee, they need to be brought up in overall raid value so that taking one isn't a decision you begrudgingly make because you want/need the limit break. You might argue the necessity of having a bard, about how no group is clearing through coils without at least one bard,......

Nothing Really’s perfect. We all learn from something – by observing, listening, asking. Sometimes, we learn from others’s mistakes. But other times, we find ourselves confronted with the consequences brought about by our own mistakes. Whether done intentionally or unintentionally, mistakes are mistakes. And as we are human beings, we have no power to press rewind and do things over. It’s done, it’s there, we have to deal with it – that’s life. I would like to thank you because : For the new experiences and adventures we gained from traveling For the stories we shared simply because we needed someone to talk to, For the mistakes we made that got us into trouble but made us closer, For the disagreements that helped us accept each other for who we really are, For the laughter and smiles we shared, For the times we helped each other out, For the nights we watched movies or series together, For the pictures we took together… The past will always be a part of our lives we can’t control. It’s done. Whatever happened, happened. Whoever came and stayed, stayed; and the others, well maybe they just weren’t meant to make it to the present. But who knows about the future, right? I’ve realized not too long ago that I’ve been trapping myself in the past, comparing whatever happens to what already happened. And by doing so, I’ve unconsciously been restricting myself of enjoying what I have now. The habit to compare the past to the future comes from the fear of repeating the past. A......

...Adam Lopez Mrs.Leinweber Oceanography 14 October 2015 Water Desalination Plant Report To begin, when arriving to the desalination plant I didn’t really think there was much of process to turn salt water into drinkable freshwater. After going through the plant and being shown exactly how the salt particles and other minerals are separated I realized that there are many steps to the solution/process. First water goes through the water intake then goes through the ultrafiltration process, this acts like a filter for all particles over 10-20 Nano meters in size examples of these Nano particles such as pollen, algae, bacteria, viruses, germs and organic molecules. Even after the ultrafiltration process there are still sodium and other minerals and particles that we cannot healthfully consume. This is where the second process takes place and this is Reverse Osmosis, when this procedure occurs a device called an Energry Recovery Device takes in both water and salt molecules and splits them apart making the water purified from all sodium and other oceanic particles, this exact procedure of splitting the molecules apart uses the most energy. This is why the (ERD) device was then invented by ERI, because not only does it purify the water it transfers pressure and reuses up to 40 percent of the energy it took to split and filter all the particles. It takes two gallons of salt water to create one gallon of fresh water making the salt water to fresh water conversion ratio 2:1. It......

...clear idea about the size of the company/business, the kind of work or clients they have and what role they would expect you to work in. Knowing a bit about the company or business that is interviewing you will always come in handy. There's nothing worse than being asked "so... do you know much about our business" when the answer is no! If you find out that the job you have an interview for isn't really what you're looking for, there's no harm in attending the interview anyway... practice makes perfect. Dress the Part Having conducted many interviews in the past, I can honestly say, leave the suit and tie at home. In creative fields a suit is too rigid and old fashioned and you don't want to appear that way. This doesn't mean that you should turn up in your jeans and sneakers either (unless you're a freelance Illustrator with an outstanding portfolio... they seem to be excluded). Try to dress a little bit better than what's expected from the staff, this way you will show that you're putting in some effort, but also that you're not a bad match for the workplace. If you're really stuck, try on your outfit the evening before and ask a friends opinion. Arrive on Time Always arrive at the interview on time. If you're nervous beforehand, you'll be a mess if you're running late. Arriving on time is good for other reasons too. Sometimes it's all that separates you from the other applicants and every little bit helps. Take a Printed Resume You may not need to take along your......

...husband and a wife is what makes them complementary. The different but complementing traits could add to the union’s strength if understood properly. What does Ephesians 5:22-33 say about this? WHAT The Bible says that every good thing comes from God (James 1:17); one of which is marriage. This God-initiated union is a relationship covenant between a man and a woman. Here are three points to better understand what marriage is and God’s purpose for it. 1 Marriage is a union between a man and a woman. God designed marriage. “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’” Mark 10:6 A well-engineered product is one with function, aesthetics, purpose, and life. The Greatest Engineer designed marriage with the same goals. Anything that goes outside the design is considered a misuse. To better use or maximize the purpose of something, where should we go? Why is God’s opinion on marriage the one that truly matters? 3 God intended marriage to remain a union for life. “Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Mark 10:9 When God starts a union, each party must work to keep it together. It is indeed a covenant not a contract. A contract has limited life while a covenant is for a lifetime. Also, parties in a contract seek their respective gain. In a covenant, each party should give and, if possible, sacrifice to keep the relationship......

...believed in the literal truth of Jules Verne's 1864 account of a different world at the centre of the earth, accessed by giant volcanic tunnels. Trevor takes his young teenage nephew Sean, played by Josh Hutcherson, with him when some laboratory readings suggest seismic conditions are as they were when Max disappeared. He and Sean hire a guide -- the fit and feisty Hannah, played by Anita Breim -- and accidentally slip into one of the volcanic tubes, newly opened by volcanic activity. And then the adventures really start. They confront steadily rising temperatures, giant lizards, icing-thin rock formations, reversed magnetic fields and, yep, some pretty scary prehistoric creatures, land and sea born, much as their well-thumbed edition of Verne's book describes. It's all good clean fun: a rattling good yarn in fact, with mostly nicely modulated performances from Fraser, Hutcherson and Bream, emphasising confidence, growth, solidarity and self reliance. But it's really about those cliff-hanging moments. This film has some beauties, including one when young Sean has to cross a huge chasm on a series of floating rocks. Sunrise and sea monsters had me jumping too. In Journey to the Centre of the Earth, we have to duck a lot of rocks, and the filmmakers -- the director is seasoned special effects supervisor Eric Brevig -- have also had to learn to pace the effects. It's the film industry's response to the threat of home cinema. A few years ago, as flat screen televisions......

...context: compliments can set up a debt, or they may be intended to be interpreted negatively. Holmes is unable to see compliments as anything other than positive, but she is willing to admit that `very clearly, the relationship between the complimenter and recipient is crucial in accurately interpreting the potential functions of a compliment’ (Holmes, 1995:118). She does not analyse these relationships, however. She is aware that context plays a role in whether a compliment is interpreted as an aspect of positive politeness or not, but she is forced to assume that compliments can be interpreted globally, because of her concern with generalisation and, influenced by Brown and Levinson, universal statements. Thus, whilst she admits that: `in some relationships compliments will be unwelcome because they are experienced as ways in which the speaker is asserting superiority’, her general positive model of compliments holds (Holmes, 1995:119). She lists the functions of compliments: ironic, sarcastic, flattery, patronising, expressive of solidarity, praise, envy or admiration, but despite this very mixed list, in her data she only analyses those compliments which function to express admiration. She asserts that `provided it is not sarcastic, a compliment on someone’s appearance such as "you’re looking wonderful" is difficult to interpret as anything other than a positively polite utterance’ (Holmes, 1995:131). However, there may be range of different motivations and......

Anything Ozzie Nelson? Yeah, right. In the early 1970s, television audiences said goodbye to the goody-goody TV fathers that they had grown up with and witnessed the birth of a new kind of TV dad—a real dad. Gone were the distinguished, upper-class fathers with the pipes and sweaters with the leather patches on the elbow—the guys who gently sat their children down and explained to them in a calm voice that the kids had messed something up and then gently gave them moral advice on how to fix the situation. Oh, yes, those men were gone. Enter the new guy: Archie Bunker. This dad was middle-aged and middle-class, he believed in family and country, and he feared everyone who was different from him. He yelled at the top of his lungs about anything and everything, and he showed his sensitive side only in the most serious of situations. Archie and family were introduced to America in 1971 by sitcom genius Norman Lear in a show called All in the Family, an American remake of the British hit Till Death Us do Part, which ran for ten seasons in England from 1965-1975. Initially, the show didn’t do well in the ratings. America’s response to the character who would become “America’s most loveable bigot” was outrage. Many wondered how CBS could air a show whose main character used words like “jungle bunny,” “jigaboo,” “fag,” “fairy,” “Mick,” “Spick,” “dumb Polack,” and “Hebe” on a regular basis. The audience was shocked and, at first, put off by such a character. However, the......

He decided to open a restaurant where customer would decide how much to pay for their meals and extra donations would fund another customer’s meal who normally could not afford.

Lentil as Anything or Lentil for short, also believes in assisting their employees by sponsoring some of them get their Australian visa, and management have extended this culture by hiring people who are struggling to find employment. However, despite Shanaka’s and his team’s passion, they have failed to run an efficient and successful organisation. Throughout the day-to-day operation of the organisation, poor management and ‘no-structure’ culture has contributed to the struggles within Lentil’s operation. This essay will discuss the mismanagement in the organisation and suggests what managers can do to turn it into a successful firm. First discussion is regarding no quality control for their products and services. Quality plays a significant role on both products and services that meet or exceed customer's expectations.
