The Value Of Our Actions.
Sometimes is easier for people to understand what you mean by our own actions. The act of talking and not proving what you say might annoy people or disappoint them. In fact, showing what you mean when you’re teaching something is very helpful for society to understand better. And, also, words sometimes nowadays don’t mean the most understandable thing for people, you need to show it if you want to say it, or they will not believe you.
Talking about if they will believe you or not, it depends on what you’re talking. For example, if you want to impress somebody, you need to show how impressive you are and tell always the truth before telling him or her lies. Because of that type of issues, people are starting to reject words that people (such as magazines) say without proof. Years ago, things were different because when someone said something, real or unreal, people used to believe in it. Of course, some kinds of things are still believed without proof, but that’s just because people want it to be real but the truth is that they aren’t. Truth or lie, people nowadays must show what they mean by actions that sometimes make people annoyed.
In our society, things are getting very complicated because nobody agrees in what to believe in. Also, people say something but they don’t have any actions to show what they’re saying. In fact, there’s an action for everything you want to say, but finding the action is the hardest part. But, when people start finding it, it becomes very valuable. In fact, the few people that found the best action to explain something they mean to say; have had honors and were very recognized by everyone. For example, when Newton finally proved the existence of the Law of Gravity, became famous and recognized until today. That is because there is prove for every single thing that we learned and we know.
Finally, I think…...

Action Speaks Louder Then Words

...Actions speak louder than words In this world where we live today, people tend to avoid paying attention to anyone who is talking, unless you have a good impression on them. Have you ever asked yourself why don’t we always believe words? I guess the reason of that is that words are alterable; we say something, and we change it the next minute right away. I therefore firmly believe that actions speak louder than words. First of all, every single person on earth has the freedom to say whatever he/she wants, but it is not something guaranteed that everyone is going to believe you, or take you words into consideration. People nowadays are more likely to believe the language of the body, because it is the evident truth. For example; when someone runs for presidency; he wants to get people’s votes. Thus, he/she starts improving his/her image among people by visiting hospitals, making donations, and giving free stuffs away. Furthermore; words don’t have the effect that actions do on people. Words are easier to forget, while actions can be forgotten that easy; actions would last forever if they had a great impression on us. It is also impossible to show people how truthful your words are without an evident action. For example; when you say ‘I missed you’ to a friend, and you haven’t even bothered yourself to pick up the phone to know how he/she was doing, then obviously these words are just lies. Hence, actions are more realistic when it comes to expressing our......

Actions Speak Loudly

...Actions Speak Loudly Chekhov and Conrad are masters of symbolism, but each author uses the literary tool differently within their stories. For Chekhov, simple gestures and subtle images meticulously placed throughout the text help to reveal psychological aspects of a character. Conrad, on the other hand, tends to employ symbolism rather visibly and allegorically, allowing the reader to directly establish a link between objects, actions, and themes. To compare Chekhov and Conrad’s writing styles, an example of symbolism in one of each author’s stories will be used: Gurov eating of the watermelon in Chekhov’s “The Lady with the Little Dog” and the lamp in Kurtz’s death scene in Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”. Using these examples, it becomes clear how Chekhov uses symbols to develop a character’s persona to more effectively have that character illustrate the story’s theme while Conrad uses symbols to directly develop the story’s theme. The watermelon scene in Chekhov’s “The Lady with the Little Dog” contains symbolism associated with the gestures and actions of the story’s male protagonist Gurov. Chekhov has the scene begin with Anna – the female protagonist – and Gurov entering Anna’s apartment for the first time. Immediately after entering, Anna begins to express her fear that Gurov will not respect her should she cheat on her husband and become romantically involved with Gurov. The details of Anna’s face also help to set the serious and gloomy tone for the scene as she......

Conversations: More Than Just Words

...Conversations: More than Just Words BCOM/275 November 11, 2013 Conversations: More than Just Words Communications is the process by which information and thoughts are shared between two or more people by means of speech, behavior, or nonverbal cues. Thereby, meaning the process of conversing does not only occur with verbalization but also through demonstrative communications. Demonstrative communications involves all actions that do not comprise of spoken language. Every day, we send out and receive messages nonverbally, using them to emphasize and enhance our verbal messages. Everything from the way we dress to the way we carry ourselves speaks to others and says a lot about our character. Silent messages encompass a considerable portion of our daily communications. A study showed that only seven percent of communications is verbal whereas ninety-three percent is composed of demonstrative communications, indicating that we use nonverbal actions to listen and respond more than we do with words (Mehrabian, 1995-2011). What we are thinking and feeling is communicated through our body language and sent out in unspoken language. Therefore, when carrying out a conversation we are not only listening with our ears but also our eyes, just as we respond with body language and not only with words. Developing communication skills to be more conscious of body language and their meanings will enable a person to read other people better, in turn, allowing them to be more conscious......

Action in the Matrix

...a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. What makes the Wachowskis' 1999 film, The Matrix, an action film isn't just its exhilarating visual effects and the innovative "bullet time" that loaned the audience a virtual eye to the world of the Matrix, where the laws of physics can be bent or broken. Nor is it just the fighting sequences of kung fu and the impossible acrobatics of a hero "plugged-in". The Matrix is an action film because its actions speak louder than its words. It is a film where adventurous narrative and visual spectacle meet, unapologetically, hand in hand. The film, through action, reveals just as much story, if not more, as through characterization or dialogue. This is best summarized in the words of the great Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), as he explains to Neo (Keanu Reeves), and consequently, the audience: "Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself." Perhaps it is because the story in The Matrix is one best understood in action, as it dwells into territories of sci-fi genre (e.g. breaking physical limitations through psychological liberation). There is no better way to explain how a person, who is liberated from the Matrix, can jump from one building to the next than to show it. Furthermore, action in The Matrix can be seen as the physical display of its story's progression. The various set piece action sequences throughout the film mark the development of the protagonist in terms of his psychological......

Nonverbal Communication- Actions Versus Words in the Workplace

...Nonverbal Communications- Actions versus Words in the Workplace Brigitte Nichols COMM/400 September 15, 2010 Christopher Page Nonverbal Communications In this paper will be discussed nonverbal communication in Intra-Corp Inc. Three examples of nonverbal communication will be discussed and analyzed. At least one listening technique will be discussed. How the listening technique can be used in a managerial situation will also be covered. At Intra-Corp. most of the communication is verbally or by e-mail, but I have observed a few instances of nonverbal communication. The first instance was a conversation between my boss, Alex, and Pam, the office manager. When Alex has something important to say to you, he will put his arms on the armrest of his chair take a deep breath and turn the chair to face you. He did this to Pam and told her about an e-mail that was sent out late. She rolled her eyes before she turned to face him. Since he is her father she let him say what he needed to and promised it would never happen again. Alex’s actions were a compliment to the conversation. Although her actions were condescending Pam did understand that he was upset. Her actions were not received by Alex, so no nonverbal communication occurred. ...

Speak

...Speak Personal Response Speak shows that the author, Laurie Halse Anderson, understands and remembers the crude emotions and unrest that makes up a teen’s world. This happens to be the most realistic fiction story on the battles of adolescence and harassment. Melinda does not turn into a racist activist Wonder Woman (even though she might when she is older) portrayed in some movies and her recovery is not sugar coated, it describes the true struggles. Even though this novel is based on sexual harassment it also focuses on the thoughts and feelings of a victim of the cruelties in high school. Rape and harassment are not issues I have dealt with but the shunning by friends, weird teachers, and oblivious teachers are problems that I and many others can relate to. For instance, the description of the Sordino family’s communication system on page 14 depicts how some teens get cut of from communication with their parents. The author of Speak portrays high school to be truly what it really is. “I am clanless.”(4) Melinda thinks just what practically all teens think. I am part of no clan; I don’t think FFCA has clans but you still fell “uncool” or not popular. Melinda also talks a lot about how no one cares what you have to say and in reality, that is the comprehension countless teens have about adults. Laurie Halse Anderson did a dead-on illustration of a ninth graders’ day to day life in the dog eat weaker dog world we call high school. Creativity and symbolism in writing are...

Some, such as bedlam, reveal the origin of their current meaning, while others reveal the origin of a different modern word, as with gentle, the sense of which is preserved in gentleman.

Speak

...Name: Shelly (Yiru) Shi Year: 10th Title: Speak Author: Laurie Halse Anderson The book, “Speak” by Laurie Hales Anderson is about Melinda has a deep secret in her heart which she was raped by a boy named Andy. It is too shameful and secretive for her to talk. I have a friend who was raped by her half brother, but she chose to talk to the Elders eventually. There is an old saying in Chinese that “you should turn on the light in your heart by yourself. Thus nobody can save you except you at the first time”. I feel for her because as for me sometimes when I feel that something’s are hard for other people to understand I tend not to talk about because nobody can understand. For Melinda, sex is one of the most important things in a woman’s life. Nobody wanted to ask her what happened at first time when her best friend Rachel or her mom saw her weird behavior, but also her fear and struggling in her deep heart. She needs somebody to push her, to help her in a gentle way, like Mr. Freeman did. Even though, I didn’t meet any of these things in my life, it doesn’t mean it won’t happen in somewhere else in the whole world. Before I read the book, I thought if someone doesn’t want to talk, it just because they are introverted by nature. I always adopt a nonchalant attitude towards things of no personal interest (which is a Chinese old saying). But I realize that there would be lots of people that we need to focus on. Maybe they are sadness ladies, upset students or even......

...Introduction “There is no commerce without community,” (Jennae as cited in Goodreads, n.d.). Indeed, commerce has pervaded the global stratosphere, linking countries in a communal bond of trade. Designated as trade blocs, these bonds are a type of intergovernmental agreement, usually associated with geographically aligned intergovernmental confederations, “where regional barriers to trade, (tariffs, and non-tariff barriers) are reduced or eliminated among the participating states” (Boundless, n.d.). As such trade blocs enable politico-economic ventures to flourish in the benefaction of its member nations. Albeit, trade blocs also represent diverse forms of economic integration, markedly, the preferential trade area, free trade area, custom union, common market, economic union and complete political integration (“What are trading blocs?”, n.d.). Customarily, the preferential trade area denotes the lowest level of commitment to reducing tariff barriers; typically member nations reduce trade barriers sans eliminating any amoung themselves (Finance Train, 2012). Whereas, the free trade area exists under the terms whereby trade barriers are removed on all member country imports, whilst independent tariff policies for non-member imports are retained (Finance Train, 2012). Comparatively, within the custom union, trade barriers are not only removed on all imports from member states, but a set of common policies are authorized in dealing with imports from non-member countries......

Have More Than You Show, Speak Less Than You Know

...Have more than you show, speak less than you know. 怀壁慎显,博学谨言。 ---William Shakespeare I was thinking to give a speech on stuff like this: When the whole world is about to rain, let’s make it clear in our hearts. But then I thought, no, the thing I want to show you is something more meaningful in some way. Before Jack Ma wows the world in the day Alibaba go public, he has become my hero for a long time. As we all know that in his early years, his perception of internet and business was beyond the time. And I am also surprised to find that he is such a fluent English speaker that he can answer the question raised by the reporter without a interpreter standing by. Especially when he had a talk at Davos Forum, his sense of humor and confidence impressed me a lot. So I reflected a lot on this, Jack Ma seems talk none stop and being so high profile, why his appearance is so interesting and we all love it? In my perspective, what he shows to us ,to the world is just a little thing, compared to his vast spiritual world. In order to learn English well, everyday he volunteered to be a guide tour for the tourists from abroad for 9 years. When his companies ran into a trouble, he even thought of giving up for many times. At first he just knew a little about the internet, but after many years of searching, he became china’s internet godfather. More often than not, with an intention of earning a place among so may people,sometimes people are eager to show off their success. Maybe......

Be Impeccable with Your Word

...In the article, “Be Impeccable with Your Word”, the author talks about the gift that directly comes from God, the power of the spoken word. The word is not just a term or a symbol, it is the potential to express and connect, to think and create the events in your life. But like two sides of a coin, your word can create the most beautiful dream come true, or your word can destroy everything you own within seconds. One side is the misuse of the word, which creates a living hell. The other side is the perfection of the word, which is capable of giving you heaven on earth. Precisely, what you dream, what you feel and what you really are, is all manifested through your words. The author advises that in order to be impeccable with your word, you must plant positive opinions and thoughts in your mind; take responsibility for your actions and most importantly, make truthful use of your energy. To begin with, putting the right kind of constructive thoughts in your mind is the first step towards becoming immaculate with your word. The human mind is like a fertile ground where various seeds are being planted at the same time. These seeds are the virtual opinions, ideas and beliefs that grow into actions. The word is like a seed. However, too often, the mind is fertile for the seeds of fear as well. Every human mind is fruitful to specific kinds of seeds and it is important to see which kind. One man alone, many years ago, sent out seeds of fear and manipulated a whole......

Affirmative Action Bigger Than Diveristy

...Affirmative Action: Bigger than Diversity Is affirmative action bigger than diversity? This is the question that comes to my mind since there has been much debate on whether or not Affirmative action laws are still needed. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in October on Fisher v. University of Texas, a case that could overturn or uphold the 2003 Grutter v. Bollinger ruling that found affirmative-action policies to be constitutional. (Nhan, 2012) Of course it’s still needed and it’s constitutional since it reinforces the Constitution that is based on all men being created equal. And without this reinforce able law I don’t believe that the Constitution will hold true. And if Affirmative action was not still needed then why is there so much debate about it. Affirmative action has gone way beyond diversity, it’s all about power. This leads me to my first point when affirmative action was put in place white America lost their control and now they are trying to do whatever it takes to get that control back. One of the biggest blows to this countries ego was when the first black president was put into office, this really struck nerve. Finally, getting rid of affirmative action is just another way to shake up the confidence of minorities and women so that they break them down to where society feels they should be. This is just a fraction of why I feel affirmative action is still needed and society is just playing the part until someone makes the under minding......
