Demonstrative Communication PaperDemonstrative communication is in large the majority of how we communicate with others. The many forms of communication continue to change with all the technology that we use on a day-to-day basis, we tend to rely on this technology for our main form of communication. "We are witnessing a breathtaking evolution of new forms of digital communication. More than witnessing, we are facilitating it. All of this is unfolding so quickly that we do not have time to pause and reflect on what is happening." (Iskold, para. 11)Because of the increase in the use of technology, we lose the face-to-face communication that we are used to, where we can observe the receiver...

Demonstrative Communication is a non-verbal form of communication. According to Types of Nonverbal Communication - 8 Major Nonverbal Behaviors, “a substantial portion of our communication is nonverbal” (Psychology, By Kendra Cherry). Non-verbal communication including body language, hand movement, head movement, avoiding eye contact, and the tone of voice.
Positively, non-verbal communication may be interpreted equally from culture to culture. As most forms of non-verbal communication transcends a smile, a hug, and most hand movements. However, touching someone on the shoulder or hand may exemplify somatic actions and send signals that may not be intended as, “a touch can be used to...

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...

Communication is the circulation of material via two people whereas one person is the
sender and the other is the receiver. The importance of communication is how the sender expresses
the intended message and how the receiver comprehends the material. Communication is an important

happen in the transmission phase that can make the presentation effective, ineffective, positive, or
negative. Listening and responding to the transmission of the message and its perspective or objective

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 verbal or nonverbal clues to their existence--is generally an inappropriate means of dealing with...

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. In this meeting, we wanted to communicate with them and also have them to communicate with us. We wanted to have their undivided attention. Watching their body language and body gestures, would let the speaker know if they are paying attention.
There are a few codes of nonverbal communication that we want to follow to have a...

We were strangers from the beginningtormented by our differencewhich did not exist.(Betsy Warland)An important ingredient inherent in a successful mother-daughter relationship is balance. Like the scales of justice, maintaining equilibrium requires work. The special bond between mother and daughter is delicate and unlike any other relationship due to expectations of performance on behalf of both women. The female psyche is, characteristically, particular: each woman having a certain regiment making themselves unique. Ideals and behavior learned, possibly inherited, from others are two of many things which carve an individual's personality. It is these similarities and differences which often...

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. To explore these issues, scholarship on...

Everyone in the, paradigm of the human experience instinctively and systematically change the music of the past to represent the realities of the present.

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 time,...

Over thousands of years language has evolved and continued to develop to what we know it as today. Throughout the years, it has been studied how we learn language and the benefits of learning it as well as the deficits of not learning it. While studying language it is important to consider the language acquisition device, language acquisition support system, and Infant-Directed and Adult-Directed Speech. Not only is it important to learn language in general, but there are specific sensitive periods in which a human must learn the language in order to obtain developmental milestones. The sensitive period is also crucial when learning a second language and can greatly affect the human...

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 in...

“There is nothing on earth that you cannot have-once you have mentally accepted the fact that you can have it.”
Perhaps the most important mental and spiritual principle ever discovered is that you become what you think about most of the time. Your outer world reflects your inner world. You can tell the inner condition of a person by looking at the outer conditions of his or her life. And it cannot be otherwise.
Your mind is extraordinarily powerful. Your thoughts control and determine almost everything that happens to you.
You are a complex bundle of thoughts, feelings, attitudes, desires, images, fears, hopes, doubts, opinions and ambitions, each of them constantly...

The Power of The Judiciary
When the founding fathers of our country, and by that I mean the
Federalists, were creating the system of government for America, they knew that
a separation of power would be necessary to protect the American people from the
evils of a monarchy or dictatorship. In doing this, they created the three
branches of government; Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary. The plan was to
have the Legislative make the laws, Executive enforce the laws, and the
Judiciary interpret the laws, and it was Madison's system of "Checks and
Balances" that would keep the three in check. No one branch would be able to

A child is a blank book and a parent is the pen. A parent or elder makes a remark or takes action, and a child often will respond by mimicking what has been said or done. The essence of a child is one of innocence as well as gullibility. Adults serve as an abundance of knowledge, rules, and regulations, which a child is supposed to live and abide by. Not all children will obey the regulations expected of them, yet certain rules are more critical than others. When disciplining children, parents and adults take rules pertaining to gender specifications much more seriously than most other topics of obedience, without acknowledging they are practicing such behaviors. Gender distinctions are...

Today, the press and media cause rampant swaying of the vote through
their own opinions and reports. People are often misled with half-truths and
believable rumors that can aid or ruin an election. Journalists and the
newspapers often print things too hastily, without first investigating the truth
or at least both sides of a story. Candidates abuse the media, using money as a
pass to publicly slander and deface the character of their opposition, his
ideals, and even the innocent people related to him. These concepts did not

The Pressure to be Perfect
In today's competitive society, a person strives for perfection, due to the fact
that so much emphasis is placed on one's outer appearance. No matter who we are
or where we live, society puts this pressure upon us. We are typically faced
with this pressure by models on television and in magazines. Companies seem to
have targeted women more so than men. They usually use women with good looks and
nice figures to advertise and market their product. When companies use these
women in advertisements, it is setting a standard that other women feel that
they need to follow.

Miss Brodie fails to be a good teacher because she teaches on her own accord, gives her students wrong impressions, and displays unprofessional behavior towards her staff and pupils.
As a schoolteacher in Edinburgh during the 1930’s there were many rules and regulations that teachers had to adhere to in order to successfully feed the minds of their young pupils. Schoolteachers had more of a responsibility during this period than today because school was the only source of information and education that people could receive. Due to this fact, the government set strict policies and curriculums (and still do) that teachers must follow so...

I do not believe that evil—as we typically understand it—exists in the world. I believe that what we perceive as evil is simply our misdirected use of the good that God provides. The reason that we even have an experience of perceived evil is because for the soul to experience itself as any particular thing, the exact opposite of that thing must come into the space. In other words, in this relative existence, hot cannot be hot without cold, tall cannot be tall without short, and you cannot be you without that which is not you. So I believe that what we call evil is just the opposite end of the spectrum of good, not something separate. Following this line of thought, the next step our...

This paper will discuss the different effects managed care has on the quality of mental health care for its clients. On the positive, managed care has increased availability to a cliental that would otherwise not be able to afford mental health care. On the negative, there has been a reduction in quality in order for managed care corporations to keep costs low and still make money. Proper implementation of managed mental health care would likely result in high quality, low cost mental health care.

The Protestant Reformation was a major 16th century European movement aimed initially at reforming the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. The Reformation in western and central Europe officially began in 1517 with Martin Luther and his 95 Theses. This was a debate over the Christian religion. At the time there was a difference in power. Roman Catholicism stands with the Pope as central and appointed by God. Luther’s arguments referred to a direct relationship with God and using the local vernacular to speak to the people. Luther’s arguments remove the absolute power from the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church in general. The revenue from the taxes paid to the Church would...

The Puritan beliefs and practices were complicated and rather "snobbish," as seen in The Puritan Family.
The Puritans were "Christians," in that they believed in Jesus Christ yet some may argue that they did not lead "Christian" lives. These fanatics seemed to obssess over a major tenet of their religion, that being "Pre Destination." That is, God Himself...
