“Media can be trusted to tell the truth”. The role of mass media as producer of trust.to come up with the evidence to prove it,we first need to understand what is mass-media?.mass media refers collectively to all media technologies,including the internet,television,newspapers, and radio, which are used for mass communication, and to organization which control these technologies.why media is so important to us?it is cuz it play a significant role in shaping public perceptions on a variety of important issues,they also play a large role in shaping morden culture, by selecting and portraying a particular set of beliefs, values, and tradition- an entire way of life, AS REALITY. That is, by portraying a certain interpretation of reality, they shape reality to be more in line with that interpretation.Mass-media is on a scale much larger than was previously possible. The mass media served as a secondary information source that produced process-based trust.the media provides society with access to information about specific communitiesn the nation as world. the medias commitment to truth displayed through their codes of practice, codes of ethics, and overseen by ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority).just imaging how our life would be if its without mass-media?
I do believe that most of you here did turn the TV on when you heard about earthquake in Japan. I do believe that you would look up on the internet to research and collect information for your assignment, you would check in the newspaper to find a part time job, you would turn the radio on while you driving just to listen to what the local news is….is it because all of these what you see on the TV, listening on the radio, reading on the papers are lies? They are not truth?

Printed in the Netherlands Divergent and Convergent Idea Generation in Teams: A Comparison of Computer-Mediated and Face-to-Face Communication DAVID S. KERR Department of Accounting, Mays School of Business, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX 77843-4353, USA (E-mail: d-kerr@tamu.edu) UDAY S. MURTHY School of Accountancy, University of South Florida, 4202 E. Fowler Avenue BSN3403, Tampa, FL 33620-5500, USA (E-mail: umurthy@coba.usf.edu) Abstract Many tasks and decisions in business, including management consulting, are performed in group settings. Computer-mediated communication (CMC) tools (e.g., Lotus Notes) are increasingly being used by businesses to support teams in a variety of settings. Considerable research in information systems has demonstrated the advantages of “electronic brainstorming” (EBS) for generic tasks involving only divergent thinking. However, it is unclear whether the benefits of CMC extend to tasks that require both divergent and convergent processes. Per task–technology fit theory (TTF) (Zigurs and Buckland 1998), the use of computer-based group communication support tools, including “chat” systems in wide-spread use today, may be less effective for convergent processes than for divergent processes. This study experimentally compares the performance of computer-mediated and face-to-face (FTF) teams on tasks requiring both divergent and convergent......

Thoughts

...A thought, as defined by the oxford dictionary is “An idea or opinion produced by thinking, or occurring suddenly in the mind. It is common to hear a person say that, “I had a thought about X the other day.” Thoughts are usually short lived, discrete events. Everyone experiences thoughts and have no problem identifying them. Thought can refer to the ideas or the arrangement of ideas that result from thinking, the act of producing thoughts, or the process of producing thoughts. Thoughts are the result or product of spontaneous act of thinking. Thoughts, especially in humans, are not that independent, they can be much more complicated and it can appear to be nothing as it seems. All the information received by the mind triggers a chain of thoughts. Edward Chace Tolman, a great experimentalist and a theoretician in psychology was the first to demonstrate thought influence action. After Tolman, a psychologist Roger Shepherd showed that people can actually manipulate thoughts or mental representations. Thoughts are electro-chemical reactions taking place in the brain, but the number and the complexity of these reactions makes it hard to completely understand these reactions. Because thought underlies many human actions and interactions, understanding it’s physical and metaphysical origins, processes and ......

Thoughts

...to hold forever. The stars and you are the same. You are beautiful but only at a distance. And kissed me like sending a thousand lightning on my spine. I tasted salt in your mouth as if you drank the waters of the ocean; good thing you didn’t drown. My skin had blood marks on because you held me so tight that winter night. But that didn’t matter because I love you. And I mean it. -End- It’s a little bit funny how I cut fringes out of my long hair And I would feel very sad every time I look at the mirror. Like I was carry kettle bells with each of my finger I thought every girl in school was perfect and not fat And I curse myself for not being alike. I wasn’t good with words spoken or written, and I was ashamed of myself every time I stood in front to say , perhaps stutter. I look above with a beaten heart. The stars at night became my mother. My father was the moon. Or so I thought. As days went by, I became even sadder. I kept on dropping hints Of sadness and they fall like nothing. As nobody noticed....

Nature of Thought

...Nature of Thought I have always been fascinated by Socrates’ bold quote “The unexamined life is not worth living” (Kirby, 2007, para. 1). He is very powerful with his chosen verbiage in this quote. He does not diminish his statement by saying that the unexamined life is less meaningful than it could be; he clearly states that the unexamined life is not even worth living. Socrates was a big believer in personal and spiritual growth. In fact, he believed that was the sole purpose of human life. Humans must make the time to examine and reflect on life in order to broaden the understanding of it. I will explain the nature of thought by describing what exactly thinking is, identifying a situation in my life where I had an altered perception and the types of perpetual blocks that influence my views. Thinking Thinking is the ability for a person to put in perspective his or her thought processes (Smith, 2003). Processes that allow a person to develop views on situations based on his or her beliefs and past experiences (Smith, 2003). Thinking uses the data that one previously learned to process the results and put it into action. Humans are the only creatures that can do this, we can think before we react. There is a strong need to express thoughts because it is human nature to want to explore and to learn. The mind is like any other muscle in the body and must be stimulated on a regular basis in order to reach and maintain full potential (Kirby, 2007). The eBook, Thinking: An......

The Nature of Thought

...The Nature of Thought How does one explain the nature of thought? To do so one must first define what thought is. Many theories have been written to this question and, the simple answer is no one knows. For the purpose of this paper thought is defined as the process in which one uses their mind to consider something carefully. Many factors can affect ones thought process. The way one is raised, emotions, age, race, gender, and personal experience can affect how one thinks. Thinking The Thinking Process The thinking process or thought process is a combination of observing, listening, and reading. After gathering the information that has just happened, with this the thinking process occurs. The brain evaluates what just happened and uses that information to decide what to do next. The sensing process. Sensing and thinking go hand in hand, because the brain uses the senses to evaluate what is going on. According to The Penguin Dictionary of Psychology sensing is “The process of whereby one becomes cognizant of a stimulus which has impinged upon one's sensory organs.” Our senses can also help us pick up on nonverbal communications as well. Although very powerful our senses can be affected by a number of things: our emotions, an illness, or if we are tired. Like it or not our emotions play a huge role in our ability to think. If you grow angry or believe strongly about something, that emotion may get in the way of making the proper decision. One thing may affect the......

Thought Paper

...Thought Paper 1: The Uniqueness of Humans Aggression, or displaying any form of hostility towards others, is one of our initial reactions when our anger arises. Some people, out of utter fury because of severe reasons, tend to become overly aggressive which leads them to commit immoral deeds such as killing (another human, where organized violence and genocide are involved). That is indeed evident among humans but what we didn’t know was that, it happens among other species of animals, too. As what Dr. Sapolsky stated in his example, “the leading cause of death among male baboons are male baboons”. There are other reasons why other animals kill but the key point is that we, humans, are not alone in doing such sinful behaviour. “We are not the only species that kills.” The only thing that makes us different from them is that, we’re capable of terminating or harming the life of another of our own species in a whole new level. That’s what makes us humans unique. We are known for our notoriety. That can never be parallel and comparable to any other species aside from ours. After knowing of Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, I’ve since then believed that humans are not much different from animals. We have seen how we have developed from apes and how we are closely related to primates. Surely, that would make us accept the fact that we are definitely one of them. But over the years, I’ve come to ponder upon the thought that maybe, we do have certain differences from them;......

Nature of Thought

...Nature of Thought David Dawson PHL/251 26 May 2014 Abeba Salter-Woods Nature of Thought I think a lot about what it means to be in thought and how an outcome of an individual’s action is exemplified on how they took the time to actually think about what they are doing. In life, as humans, we are challenge through many different scenarios that requires us to put time and effort into thinking things through. That thinking process is the foundation of the aftermath of these scenarios. To me, human thinking is unique because we are one of a kind. I don’t believe that there is another species out there that is capable of producing results that we, as humans, are able to come up with. Other mammals might have brains that allow them to think, but not to the capacity or liking to what I believe is necessary to survive on this planet. According to “Www.ask.com” (2014), “Human thinking is unique because as far as we know, we are the only living creatures who can think and put our thoughts into action. We are the only ones who think before we act. We express our thoughts because it is human nature to want to explore and to learn.” Humans express their thought through their actions. To make are thoughts more realistic, we feel that we have to witness or perform it first hand. A thought will always remain a thought if not utilize. Most of the things that humans think about is normally fantasies and actions that need to or want to be performed, hence the reason on why we act on......

Thoughts and Writing

...Writing Assignment #1 ENG 1050: Thoughts and Writing The essay “Trigger-Happy Birthday” written by Kiku Adatto, is about the author’s personal experience when faced with the dilemma of letting her son participate in the activities at another child’s birthday party. The mother of the birthday child had organized a birthday party at the local paintball center. The author was alarmed when she received the “Release of Liability” form in the mail. The liability form asked for a parent signature to release the paintball company from any liability if any participant was injured, permanently disabled or even died while participating in the activities provided by the paintball company. Kiku decided to visit the paintball center before the birthday to make a determination if she was going to allow her child to participate in the birthday party or if he was going to have to stay home on the day of the birthday party. While at the paintball center, she noted that the company did give a safety orientation and the children were given safety equipment to protect them. She also noted the expensive price tags that came with the hobby and that a couple of the kids had gotten some nice welts on their bodies from the paintballs. At the end of the day, she decided that she did not want her twelve year old son participating in the paintball birthday party. I connected well with the author because I think that we all come across decisions in our lives where we need to make an educated...

Thoughts on Cancer

...Here are some random thoughts about cancer in general and and what I think I have observed in my own nine years of surgery, recovery, and chemo. Those who have been riding that tiger formany years surely have a sense of its presence that is different from the sense with which those with fewer years' experience regard it. It occurs to me that when cancer first is diagnosed that it is a challenge to know that the illness is cancer. Some can't even say the word for a few months. Some become angry and feel that they have been betrayed, because they think that they don't deserve to be saddled with that monster. Some have expressed anger at God for permitting them to have cancer. Some have told me they are angry at the world. Some even stay in a posture of denial that it's not really cancer, and that it will all be made well, or it will be discovered that it was a mis-diagnosis. This sort of delusion has been observed to last for several years with some. Some others just accept "the death sentence" and die. Not all who die have given up. There are too many whom I personally know that have died in spite of everything that could be done by them and for them, emotionally and medically. It seems to me that we have to accept the fact that cancer is not an immediately solvable illness, but it's more nearly so than it has been at any time in medical history. Recently I have read that those with religious faith have a better time of it than those who do not. One of the remarkable......

Thought Patterns

...situations and those of others. The negativity and positivity degree in these perceptions, in other words, our thought patterns have a direct relationship with our level of competence and the success of our communication. Manz and Neck define the process of constructing thought patterns as self-leadership of thought. It is stated that with the application of specific cognitive strategies, individuals have control over their thoughts, and these thoughts have direct impact on their communicative performance. There are two ways of self-leadership of thoughts; challenging destructive thinking and building up constructive thoughts patterns. They define ten different kinds of destructive thinking with the suggestions of altering them into constructive thoughts. Labeling, having been discussed in our class as well, is one of the destructive thoughts hindering personal communication effectiveness. To clarify, assuming that a manager is lacking knowledge and awareness of individual different communication styles and has expressive-reflective communication style. She would inevitably evaluate one of the employees, who has an instrumental communication style with his being inadequate in his report or his indifferent nature of communication with her. She would label him with the words such as `unmotivated, inadequate, anti-social, etc.`. In all likelihood, these judgmental thought patterns have impact on her behaviors negatively and thus begin the cycle of negativity with poor......

Thoughts

...catching an attitude. Especially when someone asks me for my two cent and they go against what I tell them. The Last one is Judging. I try not to judge many people. The impressions that people tend to give me, sometimes give me the reason to judge them. I know half the time it is wrong to do. For example, I cannot stand to see any woman in pajama pants outside the house. I think it is very nasty for a woman, to come out of the house like that straight out of the bed. My personality type consist of these types of characteristics: skeptical, often stubborn, critical, independent, and determined. Under most circumstances my day-to-day thoughts are consistent with these traits. Self-management is an important trait when dealing people that tend to get within your circle. Self-management can also mean to be able control your emotions, thoughts, professionalism, temper, and the way you communicate with others....

Shared Thoughts

...SHARED THOUGHTS………….19.05.2012. =================================== As told by Robin Sharma. Richard Carrion, the CEO of Puerto Rico's top Bank, once shared a line with me that I'll never forget : " Robin, Nothing Fails like Success." Powerful Thought. You, as well as your organization, are most vulnerable when you are most successful. Success actually breeds complacency, inefficiency and - worst of all - arrogance. When people and businesses get really successful, they often fall in love with themselves. They stop innovating, working hard, taking risks and begin to rest on their laurels. They go on the defensive, spending their energy protecting their success rather than staying true to the very things that got them to the top. Whenever I share this point with a roomful of CEOs, every single one of them nods in agreement. Please let me give you a real world example from my own life. This past weekend, I took my kids to our favorite Italian restaurant. The food is incredible there. The best bresaola outside of Italy. Heavenly Pasta. Super foamy lattes that make me want to give up my job and become a barista. But the service at this place is bad. Bad, Bad, Bad ( like it is at most places ). why? Because this place is always full. And because they are doing so well, they have taken the lines out front for granted. And guess what? It's the beginning of their end. I love taking pictures. My dad taught me to record the journey of my life with photos.......
