There were quite a few rhetorical devices in the movie clip. My favorite was when Mr. McGee was describing his old Executive Assistant. Back in the day they we all called secretaries, but they knew as much of the goings on of the company than their immediate boss and other executives wanted to admit or believe. I think that is one reason why the named changed. The other reason is that it sounds more professional and less demeaning.
There are four classes of rhetorical devices. Class one consists of one word or a phrase that makes something less important, gives a way out if challenged, and specific words to upscale something. Class two devices succeed on unwarranted assumptions. Class three, which is my favorite, is humor or exaggeration. I use this one all the time and never realized that there was a specific name for what I was doing. Class four is using or conforming a definition to meet your needs.
The devices when used properly can captivate the audience. If they are used wrong it can get the audience in an uproar very quickly. If the author or speaker uses these devises the way they are intended to one could not argue against them and they would have an air tight opinion. A very experienced person using these devices can convey their argument to any group and have them at least stop and think.
If these devices are once again used correctly the claims that are made could sound extremely creditable. It will once again depend on how they are used and if confronted how the author could explain his claims without skipping a beat. If he had to think about the confrontation before he responded I believe that his claims would take a hit, but if his rebutted immediately then that would save him and his…...

...Week 5 Individual Assignment - Due Day 7 Class, Six months after the merger described in Change and Culture Case Study I, the new administration initiated a significant reduction in force. A decision was made to redesign patient care delivery. The administration’s first job redesign recommendation was that of a universal worker. The universal worker would deliver many support services.

Cross-site scripting allows for attackers to bypass client-side security mechanisms normally forced on web content by current browsers. 3. You can do this by disabling scripting when it is not necessary. Do not trust links to other sites on email or message boards, and do not follow links from sites that lead to security-sensitive information directly through its address. 4. The attacker can use redirect vulnerability, where a webpage uses a script to redirect the user somewhere other than the intended site. So then the hacker takes advantage of the script and you are sent to an external page instead of an internal one. 5. It can be denial of access, data loss or corruption, and unnecessary account privileges. 6. Blind SQL injection ask question that can only have a yes or no answer.

...Week 3 Summary MGT/311 Team B William Osborn, Juli Gibson, Ramon Taboa, Terrence Griffin, Cedric Davis June 30, 2014 James Eyster Week 5 Summary: Team B This week we learned ways to help make the changes within the company easier for the employees. Changes in the workplace can consist of things such as management, change in how the work is done, and change of ownership to name a few. Most people fear the unknown so when changes are made within the company. Some common fears are losing their job, that the change will affect the culture and effectiveness of implanting that change. There are some ways that the company can help to relieve some of that fear by educating the employees on the changes that are being made. The company can also relieve some of the fear by having open communication by letting the employees ask questions and give them an honest answer. Some negative ways to implement the change are by manipulation and cooptation. By doing this it can backfire on the company when the truth comes out. Going hand in hand with a company implementing changes is stress in the workplace. There are many things that can contribute to stress in the workplace. There are various ways stress in the workplace can occur for example, workload, coworkers, management, and pay. For an employee to relieve some of that stress it may help to take breaks to get some alone time. This will help the employee rest their mind......

...Week 5 Internet Service providers Ashour, Kalled Week 5 Internet Service providers Ashour, Kalled 2014 2014 Internet Service Providers In Denver Colorado, there are only two main options for personal home internet service. You can either get broadband through Comcast, or DSL through Century Link. Both have their positives and negatives, and both are around the same price. Comcast is 39.99 a month, for broadband internet service. While Century Link is $29.95 a month for DSL service. I personally have DSL though Century Link as I think that their customer service is much better than Comcast. Century Link provides packages of 1.5, 7, 12, 20 and 40Mbp/s connections, though all of them are the same price. I personally have the 40Mbp/s connection and pay $30 a month for the service. The router they provide has wireless capability and has suited all of my needs. Century Link has been running a campaign that they will be installing a full fiber optic system in the Denver area over the next year. So their speeds will be increasing in order to compete with Comcast. Comcast provides up to 50Mb/s for $40 a month, on a dedicated broadband line. Meaning that you should always have 50Mb/s no matter the time of day. They do offer more expensive plans with higher bandwidth, such as 105Mb/s for $45 a month. This is where Comcast has a clear advantage over Century Link. They can offer much higher speeds for just $15 more a month. They also have plans that package HBO and......

...Identify and describe the stage of the life cycle the brand, product, business or organization is in? The product I have chosen to discuss this week is the Philips Compact Disc (CD). Although this product is fairly common, I believe it to be unique from other examples such as the cassette tape and the Apple iPod. The main difference is that although this product is indeed in the declining stages of the product life cycle, I strongly believe the product will continue to remain relevant for the next several years due to the way Philips has re-designated the CD’s usage. The insights below prove that this product is a unique example of how companies can prolong the life of a product while evolving with newer technologies. The compact disc was first introduced in the early 1980s and was initially marketed to Japan. Although sales were initially slow, the CD gained popularity in Asia due to efficiencies with file transfers and considerably better audio quality with music recording. By the mid-1980s, the compact disc gained popularity throughout Europe as a primary means of recording music. As sales continued to increase over the next decade, Philips viewed the CD’s niche market as primarily a vehicle for the recording and selling of music. This form of file transfer allowed musicians to record more tracks on an album and continued to provide better clarity than cassette tapes and other forms of file storage. The CD’s popularity eventually spread to the United States where sales...

...system! But most families don't pay on time. The average family today carries $8,000 in credit card debt according to the American Bankers' Association. Now let's talk about the rebates. If you were using a credit card at 5%, you would have had to have spent $80,000 to get $4,000 rebates on new cars that lost $6,000 of value when you drove them off the lot. That is not a good deal! Cash vs. Credit Cards When you pay cash, you can "feel" the money leaving you. This is not true with credit cards. Flipping a credit card up on a counter registers nothing emotionally. A study of credit card use at McDonald?s found that people spent 47% more when using credit instead of cash. This is money you could have saved! If you "have to" use plastic, I suggest a debit card. I use them for travel and the occasional convenience of ordering something over the Internet or phone. Other than that, I use cash. Personal finance is 80% behavior. You need to cut out habits that make you spend more. You do not build wealth with credit cards. Use common sense. When you play with a multi-billion dollar industry and you think you're going to win at their game, you are naive. You cannot beat the credit card companies.

Firms should always be adhering to public policy changes related to environmental initiatives because essentially one of the largest contributors to company sustainability is environmental compatibility. However, a company that is trying to minimalize cost could only follow the minimal requirement of certain environmental aspects such as recycling in certain places in the world. This factor alone could save companies expenses. 4.

...week 5 Describe the neuroanatomy of and neural processes related to learning based on current literature. There is a subtle difference between learning and memory whereas learning is the process by which in one’s mind there is an incorporation of new information and abilities and memory is the way in which the mind stores the information and abilities. There is a great importance from the outset that there are many kinds of memory such as procedural memory. Procedural memory is the process of remembering how to do certain things. Declarative memory is another memory where one can remember actual semantic information. These two memories are often unrelated in many instances. A prime example of these two memories would be a basketball player may have the perfect three point shot, but does not need to be fully aware of the physics that goes into shooting a three-pointer because procedural memory comes into play. To some extent this describes the difference between declarative and procedural memory. Even though that they are totally different form one another they both are a kind of memory. You can describe learning as a process in which experiences are incorporates into a person’s memory. This definition can be broad and encompasses not only the most traditional type of learning such as school learning. Learning can also be described as people forming memories of significant events that have occurred in the past. However, biologically, learning encompasses all of these......
