Text 'A' is a transcript of a private spontaneous speech between two friends, Rebecca and Sonia. They are talking about their attitudes towards food, cooking and cookery programmes. Sonia is positive about the three topics whereas Rebecca firmly hates cooking. Text 'B' is an extract from an online article based on an interview with Raymond Blanc. The audience is the general public as it is accessible online, but is probably mostly read by adults with an interest in cooking. Contrasting text 'A', Blanc's interview shows a hugely positive attitude to both food and cooking. The purpose of the article is to inform the reader about Raymond Blanc.
In text 'A' Sonia and Rebecca's vocabulary and speech features are influenced by the context of their conversation, a private, spontaneous and friendly situation. The conversational topic starts out as cookery programmes, as initiated by Sonia. The topic is only discussed briefly, before the conversation moves onto the topic of cooking. Cooking is not a topic Rebecca is comfortable with and she is bold with her attitudes towards it. "I hate cooking", the stress on the word "hate" shows how strongly she feels about this topic. Sonia's attitude is different from Rebecca's and this is shown when, before Rebecca has finished her sentence, Sonia overlaps with "What" showing that she is surprised enough to interrupt her friend. After Sonia expresses her shock Rebecca takes conversational dominance to explain herself, but she seems to be more defensive than explanatory when doing so. She give five reasons about why she hates cooking but they are all very similar to each other. For example, "whatever I make always turns out wrong" and "that's not the same when I do it". The repetition of similar statements suggests Rebecca is irate and on the defensive. The is illustrated further when she repeats "you see these (.) these people". The…...

Comparing Classes

...Thesis: When choosing classes for college comparing and contrasting the classes is very helpful. Online class vs. Traditional class is a common decision many college students have to make. I. Location -Workplace -Home -School II. Interaction -Friends -Teacher -Discussion III. Accessibility -online -In Classroom Comparing online classes to traditional classes’ people generally pick traditional, because that’s all they have ever known. These days, there are many different ways to access higher education. One can enroll in a traditional program, attending classes and accessing educational resources on campus. Someone can also enroll in an all-online program, in which the majority of your schoolwork and communications are completed via the Internet. Or there's the in-between option: Blended learning environments that combine on-campus and online coursework. Online courses typically allow students to work together, which means that they can complete their coursework at the time and place of their choosing. This is often ideal for working students or single parents who need a flexible schedule. However, students who struggle to be self-motivated may find that they quickly fall behind (Cooper).Of course; the primary reason you're in class is to learn and develop new skills. For some students, this can be very difficult without the direct, face to face input of an instructor. If a person doesn't learn well from books and other written material one may......

Transcript of Mary

...Liberty University Mary, Mother of Jesus Transcript Submitted To Dr. William Joseph Subash NBST 515 By Lisa Tipton Centerville, OH May 4, 2014 Lesson 1 History and life of Mary Introduction We will look into the history and life of Mary Mother of Jesus. Mary’s background is a key to understanding her as the human mother of the Son of God. Luke 2:6 says, “And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.” Mary represented every human who needed deliverance. It was almost as if she carried the weight of the world while also carrying the salvation for that world. While many honor her and pray to her over praying to Christ, we will learn of the human side of Mary. I. History of Mary a. Came from the line of Nathan, son of David (Luke 3:31)Matt b. Cousin of Elizabeth (Mother of John the Baptist) c. Found favor with God (Luke 1:30) d. Engaged to Joseph (Matt. 1:18) e. She was a virgin while married to Joseph until after the birth of Jesus (Matt. 1:19, 25) f. She was young and poor when visited by the angel Gabriel (Luke 1:27) II. Prior to the Birth of Christ g. According to the authors of Matthew (Matt. 1:18-25) and Luke (Luke 1:26-38), Mary was a virgin h. Knew Scripture concerning a virgin giving birth (Matt. 1:23) i. Married to a man that listened to and followed God (Matt. 1:20) Conclusion We will learn of the......

Comparing/Contrasting

...Your goal is to write an essay showing how two subjects are either similar or different (not both). When comparing subjects, show how they are similar. When contrasting them, show how they are different. In a comparison/contrast paper, be sure to develop a thesis that includes words that signal comparisons, such as “although,” “even though,” “in spite of,” “except for,” “not withstanding,” or “but.” Also, use appropriate transitions to signal comparisons and link paragraphs within the body of your paper, such as “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” “similarly,” “also,” “both,” “even though,” and “in the same way.” In order for two things to be worth comparing, the two things should initially appear to be different. In order for two things to be worth contrasting, the two things should initially appear to be similar. Comparing and contrasting are ways of exploring the similarities and differences between two things. 'Compare and contrast' is often used as a development strategy for essay assignments but it's a helpful strategy for any important decisions you have to make. Generally speaking, comparing is showing the similarities, and contrasting is showing differences between two things that are related in some way. For example, you wouldn't compare/contrast reading a book to driving a car, but you would compare reading a book to reading with an e-reader.

Comparing Stats

...Comparing Populations Using Statistical Inference Sunday, September 20, 2015 MBA 6018 | Capella University Practical Application Scenario 1 You are the manager of the Gander Mountain store in Frogtown, Illinois. Recently, a customer mentioned they believed your prices for ammunition were lower than the prices of Gander Mountain's primary competitor in hunting equipment, Cabela's. You would like to include that statement in a forthcoming print advertisement, so you need statistical evidence to support this assertion. * Identify the null and alternative hypotheses needed to test the contention. The null hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are lower than those of their top competitor, Cabela’s. The alternative hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are not lower than Cabela’s. * Then, identify the most appropriate sample selection technique to gather data for testing the hypotheses. The best sample selection technique to use in this scenario would be random probability sampling. * What statistical test should you use to accept or reject this hypothesis using the data you will collect? I think that finding the average or mean prices of Gander Mountain’s ammunition would suffice. Practical Application Scenario 2 Your love of golf has brought you back to the range as the new product manager for UniDun's Straight Flight (SF) line of golf balls.

...our lifestyle have evolved for many reasons, the most dominant being due to Geographical barriers, and the area in which we live in. Geographical barriers have allowed various dialects to develop within the same language, creating a drastic contrast between the variations. Spontaneous texts in where the dialect is put into effect will be analyzed to see the differences between them and evaluating why there is a difference in dialect. Transcript ‘09’ is a casual conversation between three young Asian women. The exchange has been set in London and they are unaware of the recording. The speakers language is interactional and somewhat phatic, therefore there is no particular direction in the conversation, as there is no purpose as the teenagers just interacting. Transcript ‘12’ however, is an interview between a Guyana female and an English interviewer. This dialogue takes place in Guyana, whilst the interviewer interviews Patti (the Guyana female). The language is transactional and has a set purpose; to receive information. Transcript ‘09’ is introduced with an attempt at topic management by speaker A, who opens the conversation with the definite statement of ‘Zainab is Syed’s // mum’. The way the speaker opens this conversation highlights the uncertainty she feels when initiating the conversation, showing us through the audio, that she does not know how to start the conversation. However, as the conversation progresses, all three speakers are able to equally put their...

Comparing Colonies

...in charge of and it soon became the life support of this colony and also made Jamestown money. So it’s evident that money was the driving force of this colony. In the colony of Maryland things were a bit different being that the people mostly held its attention to freedom of religion and not so much on money. It wasn’t until 1649 when restless Protestants adopted the “Act Concerning Religion” that this religious freedom came about. Maryland and Virginia were similar when it came to their work ethic. Like Virginia, Maryland also grew their tobacco and made their money on it but this colony wasn’t entirely base on or known for their riches because religious freedom is really what they sought and what was most important to them. In comparing these two colonies it’s apparent in what ways they differ from one another although they shared a common ground in the need of money for survival, but it’s in the importance of it and the priorities of religion that made them different....

...Pascal Debowiak Mrs. Morse Comparing/Contrast Essay 02/03/16 The Environmental benefits of bicycling There are numerous reasons to own a car. Every day people drive a car to get to work, visit friends, buy groceries and complete many other chores. We are, like it or not, dependent on automobiles. However, bicycles are often a useful alternative and are more environmentally friendly. A car is but also costly and often difficult to pay for. To begin with, buying a two-year old car is smarter than purchasing a new one. After a new car depreciates a couple years, it can be purchased for thousands of dollars less. But whether buying new or used, the car’s cost is only part of the expense. Paying for insurance, maintenance, gas, and repairs adds significantly to the expense. Being able to repair a car yourself helps keep costs down, but there still is an expense. Costs of purchase, maintenance and repair aside, automobiles have an adverse effect on the environment that bicycles do not. Even before a car is driven it consumes energy. Automotive production leaves a giant footprint because materials such as steel, rubber, paints, plastics, and glass must be created before a new ride is ready to roll. But that’s not all; air quality suffers because vehicles are America’s biggest air quality compromisers, producing about one-third of all U.S air pollution. The also contribute to global warming. These findings have caused engineers to develop more eco-friendly cars for the future.......

Environmental and Evolutionary Psychology Transcript

... Environmental and Evolutionary Psychology Transcript PSYCH/635 February 1, 2016 Dr. John Barker Environmental and Evolutionary Psychology Transcript Introduction The environmental and evolutionary psychology field is the study of how a person’s environment can affect their psychological process. The environmental field helps identify if there is a connection involving the environment of a person and what impact it can have on a person’s life. The evolutionary psychology part of the field does research on a person’s memory, perspectives, and language through the theory of adaptation. Evolutionary theory will focus on the properties of an organism and how the organism functions and it will include information on how the brain functions. Some people will react to certain situations in one manner and someone else in another. It depends on the person and the situation that they are faced with as well as the environment that they were raised in. People will tend to adapt in their environment because of necessity to survive and to become comfortable within their environment. Theorists that study evolution may view a person’s psychological traits to be progressed adaptations. The field of environmental and evolutionary psychology can help a person in understanding how external factors may affect their lives. Some people do not see the outdoors as being therapeutic, but there are a lot of factors of being in nature that can help a person. Spending time outdoors and with animals......

...Comparing Oedipus and Othello For Oedipus and Othello “duty” should have their first priority. Othello’s duty was supposed to be the importance of his marriage, but he listened to Iago, ignored Desdemona, didn’t believe his own conscience, and his own heart. Oedipus’ duty was to defeat the Sphinx(which he does) free Thebes from heavy taxes(which he does) be a great king of Thebes and be a good husband, but instead he offends Creon, his brother-in-law and uncle; insults his friend, Tiresias the blind prophet; kills his father; and destroys Jocasta, his mother and his queen. Fatal flaws demolished the lives of both Oedipus and Othello. Othello was so proud of his honor and bravery that he didn’t recognize his violent temper and Iago’s mind tricks. Oedipus was so proud of his cleverness that he tried so hard to escape his own fate. With all that said, these were honestly just a couple of comparable traits between Oedipus and Othello. When looking for a great leader that would lead your city through anything and everything it is not hard to tell that both Oedipus and Othello could be those leaders. Both had great gifts in leadership. They stood up in what they believed in. Each held exceptional accomplishments and both possessed the ability to be an all-around leader. Othello was a respectable citizen who was usually known for his fighting or war success. He knew how and what the goal was to succeed. Not all leaders knew that. Oedipus was also somewhat the same. He,......
