Are Your Ears Open "Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk." (Deep and Sussman 76) Upon studying listening within another course, the vast and somewhat unclear subject began to become clearer. The act of listening entails in-depth processes that elude a majority of people's knowledge. The act of listening involves four main parts: hearing, attention, understanding and remembering. Listening entails a vast amount of information that a majority of people does not know or understand. The common view on listening often does not even involve true listening.

- Crying Of Lot 49 - 1,920 words
Crying Of Lot 49 Exploring thermodynamic entropy and information theory clarifies the ambiguous relationship between Oedipa Maas, Maxwell's Demon and the Tristero System in The Crying of Lot 49. Through a convoluted, chaotic adventure leading to disorder, Oedipa searches for the truth about Tristero, hoping it will save her from her tower of imprisonment (Pynchon, 11). Pynchon dangles this elusive message over Oedipa's head until she discovers Tristero's meaning. However, interference from thermodynamic entropy and the entropy of information theory prevent the message from being transmitted from the transmitter to the receiver. Thermodynamics deals with the changes that occur in a system if ...

Decision-Making & Forces Of Influence Critical Thinking Styles and Forces of Influence Making decisions is a major portion of the manager's responsibilities.

- If The Unsubstantial Sound Bite Is The Shame Of Televised - 741 words
IF THE UNSUBSTANTIAL sound bite is the shame of televised election coverage, then information overload is the parallel pitfall on the Internet. After spending one interminable day in October reviewing Web coverage of the presidential campaign, I can verify that the online universe is indeed infinite, and that politics, not pornography, seemed the most prolific theme. Stunned by thousands of news articles, background pieces, surveys, discussion forums, transcripts and commentary, this human brain nearly screamed for spoon-fed mush. Election sections on most of the major news sites were so enormous that a person couldn't possibly process all the sections and subsections and sub-subsections. Ab ...

... mple of such a development is an experiment at Sandia National Laboratories: "The co-operative monitoring center there seeks to make available in today's trouble-spots monitoring technologies and procedures acquired in the Cold War." The program seeks to develop IT solutions - procedures, instruments, and systems - so that adversaries may watch each other's maneuvers. Already showing some success, the center has brought Israelis and Arabs together to play simulated monitoring 'peace games' on their computer screens.

- Objectivity In Journalism - 867 words
Objectivity In Journalism Merriam Webster defines objectivity as expressing or dealing with facts or conditions as perceived without distortion by personal feelings, prejudices, or interpretations. Objectivity, as defined by the school of media ethics, means standing so far from the community that you see all events and all viewpoints as equally distant and important, or unimportant for that matter. It is employed by giving equal weight to all viewpoints--or, if not, giving all an interesting twist, within taste. The result is a presentation of facts in a true non-partisan manner, and then standing back to let the reader decide which view is true. By going about it this way, we are defining ...
