Long blocks of wood are buit into a structure that outlines geometric forms. Most of the structures are massive and steady. 6. What ideas, concepts, or themes does the lecturer address in their work?
Oscar Tuazon draws attention to the volumes and exterior dimensions we tend to overlook daily. Line plays a strong element in his work. 7. Quote or paraphrase three things that the lecturer said, and explain what interests you about each one.
“Line forms all structures.” Line is a powerful element in art, to create something you must start with a line.
“My work always changes.” Change is great at most time, because experiencing new things is interesting and various styles can be beautiful.
“Pinewood is my best material.” Choosing the right materials is essential in art, pinewood can fill a large space for a cheap price. 8. Were you interested in their work? Why or why not?
Some of his sculptures are quite interesting because they seem to have a similar durable and strong character. However, since the sculptures are so large in size, I do not seeing anyone adding Tuazon’s work inside their…...

...WEEK 1 DISCUSSION QUESTION 1-3 DQ1: What are some ways in which receivers of messages provide feedback when listening to or reading a message? What effect does this have on the message? Provide examples Receivers of message provides feedback through body language, eye contract, facial expression or verbal acknowledgment. This effects the sender and the message by either having a positive or negative effect and or determines either a favorable or negative respones, depending on the feedback given by the receiver on the content of the message which might effect the context of the message. For example, if a person rolls their eyes, it can be they are disinterested, dissatisfied or simply aren't listening to the sender. This has a negative effect on the message because it will likely get lost in translation. DQ2: Which step in the communication process do you consider to be the most important? Why do you think this? Which of these steps is the most uncomfortable for you? Why is this? How might you work to change this? I believe the most important step in the communication process is the MESSAGE. The message comprised of ideas, thoughts, feelings, or opinions to be communicated. Sometimes it can be short and concise or as complex as quantum physics. It all depends on what is needed to get across to the receiver and how it interpreted it. ENCODING would be uncomfortable/difficult part. It is uncomfortable/difficult because in my line of work I deal with new and......

Adjustment to Health Change or Crisis

...paperwork that was not confidential and when John came into the office I would hand it to him and he would quite happily sit there rearranging it. It appeared that this activity settled him. When evaluating the effectiveness of these interventions it can be seen that becoming more in control of his present, he could cope with his situation. I learnt the importance of communication, Norman and Ryrie stress that communication is essential to person-centred care even though the person ability to communicate varies. Allowances are made for the amount of cognitive impairment but ensuring that the person is not disempowered. (2013)I had to adjust to allow communication to between us to be facilitated. I spoke slower and waited for his respone. He became aware that his family needed him and that he could continue with some normality the activities he was used to doing, therefore he was learning to ‘master’ his life. Mandler, acknowledges that “Mastery implies that we become the masters of the situation, that we can encounter its demands and by meeting them adequately render them manageable” (1984, p.123). Using psychosocial interventions John was able to develop problem-focused coping strategies and incorporate the knowledge he gained about mindfulness to enable him to improve his mental health. “Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally to things as they are” Kabat-Zinn, J., Segal,......

Where Do We Go Now Respone

...Where Do We Go Now? At the end of the film Where Do We Go Now?, the Christian and Muslim women of the village swapped religions overnight leaving the men confused on to what was going on. While men struggled with this decision, the women carried about regular duties as if nothing had changed in their village. After this abrupt shift the men were on the way to bury Nassim, but when they got there, they were stuck trying to figure out which side to put him on, Muslim or Christian. Since the women of the village switched their religions, the men were uncertain as to whether or not Nassim, a Christian, should be buried in the Muslim or Christian side, leading the men to turn around in unison and ask the women “where do we go now?”. This was a really funny way to end the film, and also unexpected. It went from a serious moment, the funeral/ burial, to the confusion of the men of the village. The ending of the movie called for an alternative society in which there are no divisions among the villagers which is demonstrated through religious status. When the men were trying to figure out on which side to bury Nassim, I was thinking why they don’t just put him in the middle, where there would be no difference between Christian or Muslim. This is exactly what the women were trying to do throughout the entire movie and finally accomplished by switching from one religion to another, they wanted the war between two religions to end. This swap in the religions puts......

Touched by God

...21days neither was it 7. But l want to assure you when the time that is Gods time arises his word is fulfilled. Given an opportunity l would allow you to go back in time and be at lazarus funeral. Maybe rewind you a bit back to the time when he was sick. We have been there, I know for certain l have been in that situation. Praying for my marriage. That was a jouney l now understand had to be traveled. When Lazarus got sick they called the greatest physician. They were on the right track we all agree. Remember when your problem started? That first day ou prayed you probably cried calling him so that he would hear your desperation and the urgency of your need. He just sent word back probably and said ok, or maybe you didn’t even see his respone. Marry and Martha waited but Jesus was no show. Hen their dearest brother died. I know the feeling the desperation, once upon a time l was them, l prayed and cried God my marriage, heal the broken heart and pick the scartered pieces but Jesus just said OK. Nothing, no healing of the heart, no broken pieces picked. The marriage died. I always believe during the days Lazurus was sick the sister took turn and would run outside the gate to look in the way to check for any sign of the disciples entourage, but everyday everyhour there was no sign. Silence is deafening, its when God doesn’t say anything that we start thinking, our minds take over and we doubt, we analyze. We assume and we conclude. We carry Gods head and we say to ourselves...

Weimer Respone

...Weimer Response There are many challenges presented to students in classrooms everyday. Whether it’s something of their own doing like being unmotivated, or something more out of their control like having a bad professor, struggling in college is very easy to do. These types of problems are exacerbated in online classroom settings because the student is left on their own to get the work assigned by their professor completed. They’re basically teaching themselves the content, and that makes it extremely easy to get caught behind if they lack motivation. For me, though, I’m prepared for this because I have that determination and self-starting attitude needed to succeed in an online course. While I can adapt to many different learning and teaching methods, the one that is best for me is one where I’m given the resources needed to succeed in a course and have access to the professor for any questions I may have about any particular assignment. From there, I like to be sent on my own where I’m expected to complete the work. In this class I’d like to see us incorporate peer feedback when we have essay assignments. I feel it gives the students a chance to see how each other interprets the subject, give tips on how to make their work better, and it may give us ideas in future essays. It also gives the professor a chance to allow the students to see our own writing how they see it when reading it. That way, students can have a better feel on what the professor wants in an essay......

Response to Two Kinds

...Respone to “Two Kinds” I found Amy Tan’s short story “Two Kinds” to be an emotional and touching story. It centers on the idea figuring out what is best for someone else. This is often a major conflict between parents and their children. Initially, I thought that it would be about a parent trying to exploit their child, which it was, but I felt so sympathetic for it. Then I came to know that the mother of the main character has lost some close family members and their family home in China. With a past like that, which parent wouldn’t want the best for their child? However, the more I read the story, the less sympathetic I felt for the mother and the more I started feeling for the daughter. She made her daughter try to play the piano, which I don’t have problem with, but even though she played badly in the talent show, her mother shouldn’t be disappointed. Afterwards, I found out what the title of the story meant when the daughter and her mother got into an argument about her not wanting to replay the piano. The mother claims that there are only two kinds of daughters, those who are obedient and those who are not. Even though the daughter seemed disobedient when refusing to play the piano again, I still felt sympathetic towards her as I can relate myself with the girl. I was forced to study in medical school for six years even though I never wanted to be a doctor. I personally think that it’s wrong to exploit the children to better their life. The mother of this......

Matching Dell Case Respone

...Matching Dell Como en cualquier negocio o circunstancia, una empresa o persona tiene que tomar decisiones que impliquen dejar algo a un lado, estos “trade offs” son parte de cualquier estrategia, no se puede hacer todo siempre. El punto del caso para mi es claro, si analizamos como estaba el negocio de IT en 1998 vemos un Dell creciendo con una estrategia clara con una excelente ejecución, vemos la competencia que quería imitar lo que estaba haciendo Dell, sin ser su estrategia, y una ejecución regular tendiendo a ser positiva. En mi opinión, lo que en ese caso tenía que hacer Dell es seguir ejecutando con su modelo directo, le venía funcionando, los resultados eran excelentes, lo único que les recomendaría es estar atentos al punto de inflexión donde esta estrategia dejara de ser tan exitosa, para adaptar el cambio de manera rápida y ordenada. Lo que tenía que hacer HP, Compaq, etc, es definir si quieren dedicar sus recursos, modelo de negocio, etc a la venta directa o seguir como estaban operando con canales muy definidos, pero tratar de atacar los dos sectores iba a traer algunos costos de complejidad, y diferencias con alguno de los modelos, ya sea un “enojo” de parte de los resellers, o un “enojo” de parte de los compradores directos. Se pueden hacer análisis de porter, u otro tipo de análisis para confirmar la hipótesis, pero el hecho es que aun cuando hay maneras muy buenas de hacer las cosas en otros lados (en este caso la manera de Dell), la solución no siempre...

Network Security

...Peer-to-Peer network setup, next we move on to the Client/Server model. In a Client/Server network a centralized computer known as a server facilitates communication between other computers on the network known as clients. For a computer to function as a server they must be running an Network Operating System which is designed to manage data for a number of clients, has greater security by allowing only authorized users and where they may access the server, File control, and supply applications to clients. Some distinct advantages for the Client/Server network are user authorization canc be assigned in one place, Access to multiple shared resources, problems on the network are easily monitored, servers are able to be optimized for faster respone time, and because of the effecientcy they are able to handle a handful of computers on the network. They are also more scalable-that is, they can be more easily added onto and extended-than Peer-to-Peer nwtork.(2009, Dean, Pg.6) So now to distinctly describe the differences between these two networks. Peer-to-Peer networks have the advantage over the Client/Server model by being easier to setup, easier to maintain, and requireing far less technical expertise. While the Client/Server advantages over the Peer-to-Peer network are Greater security, Ease of resource sharing, and abiltiy to grow the network easier. This is a basic description of the advantage/disadvantages of both the Peer-to-Peer and Client/Server network models.......

Reading Respone Lack of Electronic Etiquette

...Reading Response of Lack of Electronic Etiquette Michelle Singletary gave a very strong visual image of her stance on the issue of electronic use in public. The author used many examples that made this essay much more enjoyable to read. The issue presented is something we all need to spend some time and think about. As it not only affects us, but others in the society. It is time for us, to not be selfish and start thinking about others around us. I personally enjoyed this work of art as it was on a topic that actually occurs to me on a daily basis. Whenever I am sitting in a quiet place whether it be trying to study or relax, there always seems to be one person to disturb that moment. A majority of those people who ruin that time are, of course using their personal electronics. Another reason I do not like the constant use of electronics is because whenever I go to spend time with my friends, I usually end up getting annoyed. Due to the fact that they are constantly texting away, and not focusing on fun things we can do without the use electronics. This is a very important topic because it affects how we will act in the future. Nowadays there are so many that prefer to text people instead of meeting face to face or calling. Not only because it saves time but also it saves the effort it takes of having to go through all of the work. Imagine, how it will be in the future where humans communicate to each other electronically instead of verbally. It also disturbs the......

Child Labour

We have considered it appropriate to deal with both the applications together. This Court by an Order dated 24th October, 1989 appointed a social organisation by name 'Society for Community Organisa- tion Trust (SOCCO) ganisation for making appropriate investigation and circuated the State to the court. After the Report was received an were given time to file their respones Tamil Nadu and the manu- facturers were given time to file their response by way of affidavits. This Court then directed that a scheme should be formulated for for consideration of the Court. This court made an Order on 24th July, 1991 to the following effect. "We gather from the submissions made at the bar that in the meantime some exercise has been undertaken for the purpose of finalising the Scheme. Initially the state of Tamil Nadu has taken the lead but later Union of India has also go interested and meeting on a bigger ,scale for the purpose of finalising the Scheme is being arranged.

Respone Paper

...RESPONSE PAPER Catherine Cahill Philosophy 201: Philosophy and Contemporary Ideas August 8, 2012 Self-proclaimed atheist H.J. McClosky attempts to promote atheism as a superior belief to that of theism in his paper “On Being an Atheist”. McClosky begins his paper by referring to philosophical arguments for the existence of God as proofs. Right away there is a problem with this language and the usage of the word proof if one intends to argue with the majority of philosophers who present arguments for the existence of God or most standard arguments. The basic outline of a philosophical argument follows that an argument is either inductive or deductive. A deductive argument holds that the premise entails the conclusion and an inductive argument holds that a premise renders the conclusion likely to be true. Neither form claims to have empirical proof but only to convey validity and soundness of an argument to be accepted by one who is sane, rational and......
