Traditionally, students have trouble thinking of subjects beyond right and wrong answers. For example, students will see a history class as a set of dates and events that need to be memorized in order to answer questions correctly on an exam. They fall short of seeing the broader picture or the impact that history can play on the present world or their own lives. Similarly, students miss the broader aspects of mathematics and science. They rely on formulas and procedures to solve the instant problem, but fail to see how the formulas and procedures are actually based on larger concepts that apply universally to the physical world.

Instead, stations will concentrate on a more individualistic basis whether it be by hobby, religion, race, or interests. This type of convergence has come into play as stations are beginning to segment their already audience fragmented channels.

The role of nonverbal communication within business meetings should not be over-rated. Nonverbal behavior does play a role and can help with victory in negotiations, but is not always the answer to negotiating successfully. Being aware of violating someone's personal zone or knowing when to be quiet is as important as knowing what to say and can carry the same consequences. In general, more successful persuaders were found to be smiling, nodding, and gesturing at appropriate moments during a business meeting or job interview. What is important to remember is to know when to use these various cues to your advantage, and to know not to overuse them.Voices have a significant...
