Demonstrative communication describes nonverbal and unwritten communication. This communication can be conveyed through facial expressions, tone of voice and body language. How the message is received can vary greatly depending on these factors. As cited in Lavan (2009) “about 55% of interpersonal messages are conveyed nonverbally”.
A positive experience is one where all parties feel at ease. When people are comfortable they are more receptive to the message. A speech about a charity will garner more support if the audience feels good about the speaker. A presenter who is neatly dressed and speaks with a friendly upbeat voice is very appealing. Walking around the stage keeps the...

When having a meeting with young adults, keeping them interested is very important. It only takes one person to lose interest in the discussion to distract others.
The last meeting the adults and myself had with our young people took a lot of studying and planning. We wanted to have an open communication relationship with the young people.

Watching their body language and body gestures, would let the speaker know if they are paying attention.

An extremely important aspect of self-disclosure is the sharing of feelings. We all experience feelings such as happiness at an unexpected gift, sadness about the breakup of a relationship, or anger when we believe we have been taken advantage of. The question is whether to disclose such feelings, and if so, how. Self disclosure of feelings usually will be most successful not when feelings are withheld or displayed but when they are described. Let's consider each of these forms of dealing with feelings.WITHHOLDING FEELINGS:Withholding feelings--that is, keeping them aside and not giving any...

Mirk's (2014) article “An Epic Feminist Edit-a-Thon Takes Aim at Wikipedia's Gender Gap”, featured in Bitch magazine, prompted an investigation on the interplay between gender and Web 2.0 platforms. According to this feature, there continues to be a significant lack of representation of female artists on Wikipedia and those women with entries are scantly described. On February 1, 2014 an international “Feminist Edit-a-Thon” was undertaken as a remedy to this gender bias. This contemporary issue of women's representation and contributions on sites, such as Wikipedia, thus provokes questions about the ways women engage with information technologies.

Social and political turmoil enveloped England in the mid 19th century and was a result of the increasingly unstable state of Europe at the time, and of the increase in communication and awareness with and of other cultures. Technological advancements in industry and design bombarded the nation and the English reaction to these massive changes was a mixture of apprehensive enthusiasm and rejection thereof. The revolutions of 1848 impacted England greatly, although comparatively indirectly. The reign of Queen Victoria commenced in 1837 and this age, the Victorian age, became one of adamant historicism and revivalism. Socially, as a result of the consistently increasing industry at the...

An Analysis of Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway
Somewhere within the narrative of Mrs. Dalloway, there seems to lie what could be understood as a restatement - or, perhaps, a working out of - the essentially simple, key theme or motif found in Woolf's famous feminist essay A Room of One's Own. Mrs. Dalloway does in fact possess "a room of her own - " and enjoys an income (or the use of an income) that is at least "five hundred a year - " (Room: 164). But most importantly, Clarissa Dalloway also deals with ways of working out female economic necessity, personal space, and the manifestation of an "artistic" self-conception. That this perceived "room" of her famous essay can also serve as a...

Jamaican Patois and the Power of Language in Reggae Music
Creole languages are found all over the world on every continent. When two or more languages come into contact to form a new language a Creole language is born. Some type of human "upheaval" that forces people to find a way to communicate, without using their own languages, stimulates the creation of a Creole language. In the case of Creole languages in the Caribbean, the "upheaval" is the past history of slavery. Most Creole languages are based on one language. In Jamaica the African slaves were thrown into a situation where the only common means of communication was English, or at least broken English, therefor...

Is Aeneas a Good Warrior?
'I sing of arms and of the man, fated to be an exile', begins Virgil, and it is on precisely the issue of this man of arms that critical debate in recent years has tended to centre. Scholars continue to disagree on whether or not Aeneas is presented as a good soldier, although the question itself is certainly far from black and white, complicated by the culturally relative nature of terms such as 'conflict' and 'courage', as well as by the rather oblique definition that 'good' itself holds. In this essay I will attempt to resolve these complexities and ambiguities by juxtaposing Aeneas against the Roman and Homeric ideals of the warrior, exemplified by...

The Monkey's Paw and The Red Room
During the time of the 19th century that "The Monkey's Paw" and "The
Red Room" were written, many unusual events occurred and which could
not be answered or explained because science and human minds had not
developed enough to answer questions or prove any unusual events that
occurred. The society would try to come up with answers and
explanations to the paranormal events that occurred. In some cases,
they were able to come up with answers, which in our time we would
think are incorrect and idiotic because we all ready know the answers
to a lot of them. In addition, the society in the 19th century was

Governance is concerned with the conduct of conduct. It implies neither the direct control of a monolithic state nor a singular individual acting entirely autonomously. Governance differs from social control in that it allows for a fluid illustration of how power operates not on the individual but through the individual, not as control but as facilitator. Governance works through a variety of institutions and authorities to align the choices of individuals with those of experts. By making choices from those made available by experts individuals end up seeking compliance. ... the expert is someone whose work consists in judging an individual's situation in accordance with reason and hence...
