KEY WORDS Topic selection Ethical behavior Plagiarism General purpose Specific purpose Thesis statement Audience definition Facts Statistics Examples Testimony Analogies Introduction Body Conclusion Language Fillers Stages of speech tension SUMMARY Putting together an effective public speech requires good planning. In order to construct and to deliver such a speech, you should follow an eight-step process. First, decide on a topic. Before choosing a topic, make sure you know the amount of time you have to speak, your level of knowledge about the topic, and the needs of your audience. Second, resolve to demonstrate ethical behavior throughout the process. This requires you to use accurate and current information, to rely on sound reasoning, to present a speech based on your own independent research and views, to cite sources, and to quote and to paraphrase correctly when you present information that is not your own. Third, determine the general purpose, specific purpose, and thesis statement. A speech may have one of three general purposes: to inform, to persuade, or to entertain or inspire. A speech’s specific purpose is an infinitive phrase that explains precisely what you wish to do in the speech. The thesis statement is a single sentence that expresses the central message that you want listeners to receive as the speech’s main point.

...None Coms 2 Professor Reams 2/7/2013 Reading Response for Chapters 1-2 The one concept that I feel that I can apply best to my life is what Wayne Brockriede describes some arguers as rapist, seducer, and lover. In my own words rapist arguers are just people who attack and do not let people get their words out or their point across. These kinds of arguers are people who feel that what they are saying is right and cannot be wrong no matter what. The seducer is someone similar to the rapist but just in a smoother, sneakier way. He will listen to your side but he will not take it into consideration. The rapist is more about power than about reasoning. The seducer wants you to see things his way and he will do that by trying to sweet talk you or seeming to be extremely nice. His tactics are the same as the rapist but just are delivered differently. The seducer is about power but not as much as the rapist. Now the lover, he is absolutely different from the rapist and the seducer. The lover wants your opinion and will actually make it into consideration. The lover considers you as an equal and not as someone who is lesser than he is. They do not mind their views being changed unlike the rapist and the seducer. The lover is all about sharing the power; he is all about equality in arguing. I have experience this when my friends and I argue about something. We all have been the rapist, the seducer, and the lover in are arguments. We argue about everything and anything every day.......

...Search Funds 101 The Panel G ro u sb ec k mo d e r a te d p a n el i st s Fowler, Rafael Somoza, gsb ’96; Barry Reynolds, gsb ’92; and John Moran, hbs.The panelists had a nice diversity of experience and were in different stages of their searches (from start to industry consolidation). Fowler raised the money for his search fund, Montebello Capital, with a partner.The funding took less than five months and currently Montebello is in the heat of looking for an acquisition in the Western u.s. with $1–5 million ebitda parameters. Fowler found the n e t wo r k o f ot he r s e arc h f un d er s a helpful guide for advice and for investor names. When asked about the necessity of having private equity or deal experience, Fowler said that lack of such experience was not a disadvantage (he was previously a consultant). Somoza’s fund, Quest Management Corporation,is focused on Puerto Rico. He talked about the difficulties of the search process when targets that looked attractive had either cooked books or the founders walked away at the last minute. Such is what happened to a deal in the outdoor advertising space, so he decided to found his own company in this space—an atypical result for a search fund. The investors were on board, and his company now has 22 employees. Reynolds represented the investor p e rs p e c t ive.

Com 101 Persuation

...Kyle Budde COM 101-002 Paper #1: Three Persuasion principles Netflix wins again One of the many avenues of persuasion comes from reciprocation when someone does or gives you something and then you feel a need to return the favor. I fell victim to this when I was a freshman in college. While in high school, my parents utilized a standard cable package with no need of buying any premium cable channels. This was the norm to me. However, as I was exposed to dorm life, I quickly realized that some of the shows on Netflix were actually very intriguing. My dorm roommate made an account and I found myself surfing through Netflix rather than flipping through channels. Everything was customized to him: because he watched Iron Man, the website suggested he watch Black Knight. There was no thinking involved, which impressed me. One night while doing homework I saw an ad for “Free Netflix for a month” I clicked on the bright red, flashing ad and signed up instantly to stream shows from my own Netflix account for free. However, in the last paragraph of the subscription sign up page, there was a paragraph describing how the company would start to charge me for the service after the first month. I told myself as I inputted my credit card information that I will not be paying for this and I will cancel within the month. As the free month rolled around, I only watched two movies, and I realized that it was time to cancel, as paying for a subscription would not be feasible since I......

They have given me such a wonderful life even if I take them on my shoulder and show them around the world I won’t be able to repay their greatness, kindness and what they did for me. The have always showed me the right path to follow. There are many aspects that stand out in my personality such as responsibility, helpful and respectful person. All of these things make me the person who I am and make me enjoy my life.     One of the aspects that stand out about my personality is that I am very responsible person. When I think of responsibility, the first thing pops into my mind is my family and it means a lot to me. Ever since I was a little kid, my parents always taken care of me and looked-after me even when I was sick. They gave me everything I wanted and I never felt shortness for anything. They are old now and it is my responsibility to support them. They don have enough ability to work and that makes no difference. I will work hard for them and make them believe I am always going to be there to assist them. If they could’ve taken care of when I was young so then why can’t I support them at their old age? Also, I take care of my young brothers and sisters and trying my hard to get them education and a better life.     Another aspect that stands out my personality is I am very helpful.

Com 101 Week 4 Tutorial

...COMM101 WEEK 4 TUTORIAL Week 4: Recent examples of irresponsible business (assessable). Using points from the discussion at the end of the Week 2 lecture, prepare your answers to the following. 1. What were the individual factors that contributed to the failure of Enron? Briefly explain two key factors. The first individual factor is their greed. They became so greedy wanting more and more while running the company. The executives did massive fraud and insider trading in order to get more profit because of their self-interest. if they can keep their self-interest to themselves, enron can become one of biggest company in this world, but they did all of criminal acts only thinking of the short-term benefit not thinking of the long-term effect which leads them to bankruptcy. The second one is their failure of leadership. There were numerous Enron’s executives engaged in so many false acts like false statement of the report, making misleading statement and etc. Also, enron’s top management allowed Fastow (former chief financial officer) to operating a partnership with related party to do business with them which is really opposite from The Enron Code of Ethics (Knockitpocket 2013). In fact, the board of director should have prevented all of the wrong doing from happening. 2. What were the organizational factors that contributed to the failure of Enron? Briefly explain two key factors. The role of a company‘s board of directors is to oversee corporate management to......

It 101

...IT 101-002 September 22, 2013 IT News Report Assignment 1 Article Summary The article, “The iPhone 5s fingerprint reader: what you need to know”, explains how the fingerprint sensor works to its readers. For the first time, Apple has introduced a new technology called the “Touch ID” in its iPhone 5s. Basically, this feature enhances the security for the phone’s owner, where they no longer have to solely rely on entering a passcode to access their phone. The new iPhone 5s makes use of a capacitance fingerprint reader, which measures and senses the user’s fingerprint and further forms an image. This sensor has been placed in the “home” button of the phone. Eventually, the iPhone does not store the user’s fingerprint but instead runs a scan every time a finger is placed on the sensor. The emergence of this new technology does not mean that passcodes will no longer be used. Passcode is a must! If the sensor breaks or something happens to your finger, you need a way to get back into your phone. Other Apple services, such as iCloud or iTunes, will still require passwords, as fingerprint readers cannot always be used for them. However, purchases can be made using the Touch ID. According to Apple, this new technology will prove to be exciting to its users. A simple four-digit passcode will no longer always need to be used to get into your phone. Touch ID along with the use of a passcode will prove to be more secure for the iPhone user. Analysis Day by day, new advancements in...

...Professor Schnell PSC 101 November, 20th 2014 Paper 1 Poverty is a big problem in the world, and also in the United States. Even though the United States is one of the most wealthy and well off first world nations, there are still about 10% of the population that is in poverty. This was found by the 2009 U.S. Bureau of Census Statistics report. In the 2009 U.S. Bureau of Census Statistics report, Hispanics and African Americans have the highest rate of poverty at 21.3 and 22 percent respectably. Compared to Whites which is only 8.4%, there is a large difference. However, being a business major and taking many statistic courses, there are more Whites in poverty. The total percent in poverty is 10% of the population. A total of 303,820 people live in poverty, 197,164 are White-not Hispanic, 38,556 are Black and 48,811 are Hispanic. Looking at this, there are a substantial amount more of White people who live in poverty than Hispanic and Black people combined. I received all of these statistics from http://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/p60-238.pdf. As you can see, there are many more white people in poverty. By showing only a percentage it makes it seem like only minorities are in poverty. Even though a higher percentage of them are in poverty there are many more whites who live in poverty. Female lead households also have a higher rate of poverty than male lead households. This is due to the fact that in today’s society, women are still making their way up in the job......

...SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin: No. 101 – Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements summarizes certain of the staff's views in applying generally accepted accounting principles to revenue recognition in financial statements. The staff is providing this guidance due, in part, to the large number of revenue recognition issues that registrants encounter. Based on these guidelines, revenue should not be recognized until it is realized or realizable and earned. SFAC No. 5, paragraph 83(b) states that "an entity's revenue-earning activities involve delivering or producing goods, rendering services, or other activities that constitute its ongoing major or central operations, and revenues are considered to have been earned when the entity has substantially accomplished what it must do to be entitled to the benefits represented by the revenues" [footnote reference omitted]. Paragraph 84(a) continues "the two conditions (being realized or realizable and being earned) are usually met by the time product or merchandise is delivered or services are rendered to customers, and revenues from manufacturing and selling activities and gains and losses from sales of other assets are commonly recognized at time of sale (usually meaning delivery)" [footnote reference omitted]. In addition, paragraph 84(d) states that "If services are rendered or rights to use assets extend continuously over time (for example, interest or rent), reliable measures based on contractual prices established in advance...
