Death Makes People Equal
Shakespeare uses the skull as a symbol to explore the idea that everyone is equal when they die. Even people who are special are like normal people in the end. Hamlet asks Horatio, if he thinks Alexander the Great “looked like this in the earth” (Shakespeare 272). He asks this because Alexander the Great died and “returned to dust” (272). It shows that all humans are equal in the end since Hamlet says that Alexander the Great changed to dust and that this “dust is earth” (272). Ephemeral things like power, fame, and money become worthless after dying since Alexander the Great “looked like” (272) Yorick when he died, which means that successful or unsuccessful, humans are the same in the end. While living, accomplishments are meaningful but when time passes, we return to dust and the fulfillments of the physical world become valueless. In addition, women “paint” their faces “an inch thick” in order to make themselves beautiful (271). Make-up for women can cover up their physical appearance for them while they are living but when they return to nature through death, nature takes control of them and makes them the way they are supposed to be; just their bones are left and they become “just the same” like everyone else (271). In conclusion, Hamlet explores the idea that death is the true equalizer because once we die everyone returns to dust and becomes a part of nature negating the physical aspects of human…...

Sociology and Sociological Imagination Are Both Connected to Each Other; One Cannot Stand-Alone from the Other

...Sociology and sociological imagination are both connected to each other; one cannot stand-alone from the other. Therefore, they go hand in hand. However, when looking at these two terms they are very different from each other. According to McGraw Hill sociology is, “the study of the relationship between the individual and society and of the consequences of difference.” Sociology mainly focuses on how other individuals affect us and even how we affect other individuals. For example, our parents and others close to us shape the way we think in one way or another. Not only our parents are part of who we are but also the world around us. Therefore, sociology specifically focuses on the influences that shape us as an individual. On the other hand, McGraw Hill stated that sociological imagination was, “an awareness of the relationship between who we are as individuals and the social forces that shape our lives.” Sociological imagination focuses more on the understanding of an individual. It is also considered a tool used in sociology. This tool allows us to see people in depth and have a better understanding of who they are. Therefore, sociology is broader in the way that it focuses on the influences; while social imagination is more focused on the individuals way of being due to the influences that surround him/her. Sociological imagination is of great importance in order for us to understand our society and individuals because as the books stated we can be the...

Not Alone

...Not alone Lucy and Emily have always been very close and each other’s best friends. That is quite typical of twins. Either they cannot live without each other or they can be as different as night and day. Lucy and Emily have always been the first. Even at the age of 24 they still lived together. They have rented a small roof apartment in an old post office from an old lady who had to move to a mental hospital after living alone for to long. It was the only tall building in the town so they had a great view over the sea. Tonight was like every other night. They made dinner, mainly pasta, and ate it in front of the TV and sat there until they fell asleep. They did not have a lot of friends nor family. An hour after midnight, Emily woke up feeling a little sick. Emily could not fall asleep again and looked at the alarm clock. It was 8 Am but still pitch-dark outside. Maybe it was solstice? She decided not to think further about it and instead she made breakfast. While she was cooking the eggs she listened to the increasing storm outside. It had started raining a lot now. Emily did not like to be alone when it was stormy, so she woke up Lucy. They ate the breakfast while watching TV. Suddenly the lights went out and the TV went flicking in black and white. The twins stopped chewing and looked at each other with big eyes. Quickly Lucy found some candlelight and lighted them up. They took a look at the clock again. It was 9.30 Am. How could it possibly still be dark outside?......

...educational outcomes and the skill sets needed to succeed in the quickly shifting world. The next generation of jobs will be characterized by increased technology use, extensive problem solving, and complex communication (Levy & Murnane, 2004). These are skills that go beyond typical reading, 4 writing, and arithmetic of years past. It’s not only what students need to learn that is shifting, but also how and when they learn. Students of today are growing up with laptops, tablets, cell phones, and video calls, and they expect to use this technology in their daily interactions (NCREL & Metiri, 2003). One area of significant promise in this regard is a movement toward the use of educational video games as learning tools in schools. In response to this movement, several commercial and custom made video games have been used in K-12 classrooms across the world to enhance students’ learning experience (Wastiau, Kearney, & Van den Berghe, 2009). The 2011 Horizon report suggests that augmented reality and game-based learning will gain widespread use in two to three years (Johnson, Smith, Willis, Levine, & Haywood, 2011). Advocates of game-based learning in higher education cite the ability of digital games to teach and reinforce skills important for future jobs such as collaboration, problem-solving, and communication. While in the past educators have been reluctant to use video games or computer games in the classroom, there is an increasing interest across broad and varied......

Are We Alone

...Are we Alone? Throughout the recorded history of mankind, we as citizens of Earth have encountered many unexplained mysteries. Many of these anomalies will remain unsolved unless we as a society become open to the possibility of change, open our minds and our eyes. The answer to the question "Are we alone in the universe?" has been unanswered and may remain so until scientists are no longer heavily scrutinized for researching the topic. Mainstream science has and will continue to ridicule and humiliate any individual who expresses an interest in the topic of aliens or extra-terrestrials. However, as time and technology progress, there has been a vast amount of substantial evidence that continues to build in many scientific disciplines such as archaeology, astronomy, philosophy, anthropology and ancient history. The late Swiss author of multiple best-selling novels, Erich Von Daniken introduced a radical new theory that would cause an enormous paradigm shift. Von Daniken was educated in a strict Catholic boarding school. He and his classmates were made to complete translations of the Old Testament Bible from Greek to Latin, and then from Latin to German. Von Daniken discovered his fascination with extra-terrestrials once he began to study the book of Ezekiel and the story of his wheel. In 1968, Von Daniken wrote and published his first novel titled “Chariots of the Gods” and the birth of the Ancient Astronaut theory was born. Essentially, the...

Is Transpersonal Communication a Stand-Alone Type of Communication or a Subtype of Intrapersonal Communication?

...Karman Khanna MA (Communication and Journalism) Communication Theory – Literature Review Topic : Is Transpersonal communication a stand-alone type of communication or a subtype of Intrapersonal communication? Department of Communication and Journalism, Mumbai University (2013) Abstract: Transpersonal communication is principally defined as a communication between a person and God, spirits, ancestors, or other divine entities. However, their existence is debatable and depends on the individual’s beliefs. It is his mind which believes in their existence or absence which ultimately leads to the question of whether the person actually communicated with a second entity or himself. This raises the question as to whether transpersonal communication can be regarded as a stand-alone type of communication or a subtype of intrapersonal communication which is principally defined as communication within an individual. Hypothesis: * Transpersonal communication is a stand-alone type of communication * Transpersonal communication is a subtype of intrapersonal communication * Transpersonal communication is maybe a subtype of intrapersonal communication Objective: To know the degree up to which transpersonal communication can be regarded as a stand-alone type of communication Literature Review: “Levels of communication are determined on the basis of the number of people involved in the process of communication as well as on the purpose of......

We Are Not Alone

...We Are Not Alone Everyone has an experience at some point in their lives that changes them, for better or for worse.  It may make them believe in something that they cannot see. Humans live for a short time and are here to question everything that does not fit into a nice neat box. We have a hard time believing in something that we cannot see. Yet, the wind is not seen, only felt, but we rarely think of that.  When an event in our lives makes us question everything, we go straight to denial or we try to cling to our innocence. My story starts in 2009.  That is when I started to believe in something ‘bigger’ than myself.  The setting for this experience is on the coast in Oregon. I was with some of my peers from the group home, where we all resided. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to go swimming. We plunged into the ocean and had fun. Most of us got out after a short while, however, one of my peers and I decided to stay in and have more fun. I was 16 years of age at the time. My peer and I were having so much fun that we did not notice that we were being carried out to sea. I realized this fact when I got tired and tried to touch the bottom. I panicked I could not feel the sand. I was scared and started screaming. My peer looked over at me to see what was wrong and witnessed my sheer panic in the situation. We were both a long way from land. Since I have asthma, the panic sent me into a full-fledged attack which did not help in this situation. My peer made her way......

Connected but Alone

...Connect, But Alone Does too much of a good thing ever become a problem? Sherry Turkle was trying to answer that question in her TED Talk, “Connected, But Alone?” Turkle was once a huge fan of the innovations of the Internet and she was also in awe of it but she realizes the negative effects of having an instant connection to anyone, anywhere, anything. Turkle gives examples from research she performed to show that technology has become very addicting and that we have become very secluded because of our overuse. She also gets her audience to examine their own personal experiences. What Turkle is showing from her research may make a lot of people unhappy. People will be unhappy because no one agrees to have a problem, especially in the case of addiction. Turkle wants to shine a spotlight on technology addiction, though it may not be as bad as a drug or alcohol addiction. Nevertheless, it is still an addiction. Turkle knows she has to establish credibility in order for her to diagnose mankind with this condition. Turkle uses two different appeals to make this happen. Her first appeal was to use emotion, while her second was informing the audience of who she is by sharing her background with them. In her first appeal, she shared a text from her daughter at the beginning of her presentation. The text message read, “Mom, you will rock.” “I love this. Getting that text was like getting a hug,” she told her audience (Turkle). Just by sharing that little conversation between her and...

Go It Alone

...Speech on Go It Alone Many of us, including myself, have owned a business before and many of us have struggled to make ends meet in your current day job. Owning a business can be a fun and an exciting adventure and at the same time, if not done right it can be hard and scary. I recently read a book called “Go It Alone” by Bruce Judson, this book can make starting your own business a more pleasant and successful one. I am going to be telling you some of the key points of what I learned in hopes that you will not make some of the same mistakes I made when starting up my first business. First of all the author, Bruce Judson, is one of the nation’s leading experts on entrepreneurship. He is on the Faculty at the Yale School of Management and has had several go it alone businesses over the years. In this book he goes through several principals that every entrepreneur should implement in starting their own business. I feel that if run your business with these principals in mind, you have a much better chance of hitting your goals and eventually becoming successful. One of the main principals Judson pushes is the importance of keeping your day job. Entrepreneurs are at the heart, risk takers, and that is partially true. But as one top CEO explains, “they do everything they can to limit the costs and failure.” If we are actively managing risks "While they are still refining their business concept (1) they reduce risk by gaining as much experience as possible with paying......

My Response to Pacquiao's Stand

...In Arnold Van Vugt’s article, entitled “ Samesex duos: right to live together, yes; right to marry each other, no”, the author expressed his disagreement to Manny Pacquiao’s stand on same sex marriage. He started by specifically mentioning an article written by a group named ““ Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International in the Philippines”, which he inferred was published by people who take bible teachings too literally. The reason he opposed the statement made in such article was that he regards the rights of homosexuals the same way he regards that of heterosexuals, one of which is to do marital acts. Contrary to what the bible says and what Manny Pacquiao believes, he me said that he does not think that homosexuality is an objective disorder or a deliberately evil act because, according to him, an inclination to someone of the same sex is natural and unintentional. He concluded by saying that regardless of how good a boxer he is, he should not be in the position of making laws. a) The writer’s attitude reveals that he is a gay himself. He is defensive and his defenses manifest his own hang ups and lifestyle. Being able to explicitely say what homosexuals do as married man and woman do reveals the attitude of having a homosexual partner engaged in such acts. His values are laxed and he does not have a faith or any spiritual base. He is against the church teachings and he carries with him an attitude that he will not arrive on any good and instead......

...has emerged, primarily through whistleblowers' laws. In April, 1981, Michigan became the first state in the country to pass a "Whistle Blowers Protection Act." The provisions are as follows: Any employee in private industry fired or disciplined for reporting alleged violations of federal, state or local law to public authorities can now bring an action in state court for unjust reprisal. If the employer cannot show that treatment of the employee was based on proper personnel standards or valid business reasons, the court can award back pay, reinstatement to the job, costs of litigation and attorney's fees. The employer can also be fined up to $500.. Every employer in Michigan must post a notice of this new law in the workplace.13 From the stand point of a strong advocate of professional employee rights, the law is weak. It protects an employee only from discharge for reporting illegal actions, not actions which are contrary to professional ethics or conscience. Furthermore the penalties to employers are minimal. What is a fine of $500 to General Motors? Nevertheless the law is significant as an indication of another departure from the "employment at will" doctrine. Along with other states, Pennsylvania also has whistleblower protection laws on the books. While the law only protects reporting to the employer or to government agencies, the protected report includes not only legal violations, but also "a code of conduct or ethics designed to protect the interest of the public or......

Bowling Alone

...Critical Analysis of Bowling Alone Bowling Alone defends a thesis that in the 1960’s and 70’s, something occurred in the US that caused a change. In the 20th century for the majority of the time, American were greatly involved within their community. However, since Americans started to pull away from one another and their community, the “community vitality” weakened. Putnam uses bowling as an illustration for his claim. By using statistics and charts, Putnam compares the participation of individuals in bowling to those who actually are in league bowling; the percentage declining by 40% while bowlers themselves increased by 10. The concept of “bowling alone” is not a literal term but comparatively speaking they are bowling along because informal groups, which are typical in most cases, can not replenish social capitol. Still Bowling Alone happened to fall under the original Bowling Alone 15th Anniversary and it revisits some civic disengagement as well as touches on the after 9/11 generation and compares their involvement in politics compared to their elders when they were their age. The newer generation was revived as far as its involvement in their community after tragedy struck the mainland as well as some presidency mile stones. Putnam discusses a threat to America due to the a growing gap between the youth which involved their self-esteem, family support, social trust civic and religious engagement; all of which threaten social mobility and cohesion. Within my......
