1.) Three Properties of Culture * Symbolic – stands/means for something * Socially constructed – created by society * Embodied in form – person, objects, visual, audio, language, nonverbal gestures

2.) Four means of understanding the “popular” aspect of popular culture * Well-liked * Measured by success usually in ratings and sales * Well-known * Recognized globally * Example: Paris Hilton * Targets a general wide audience (“mass culture”) * Commercial media that is for general consumption * Directed to the common people * Belongs to the people * Invokes a individuals tradition and roots

3.) Cool hunters are people who go around looking for the next person that is considered cool and what will be the start of a next new trend. They research the underground trends of fashion-forward youth in order to appropriate them for mass consumption.
The triumphant circularity of cool hunting refers to: * No coherent philosophy of cool * Can’t manufacture cool, only observe it * Must be cool to know cool * Look for people first and cool things later

5.) The functionalist approach argues that the explanation for popular culture is our obsession with “mass entertainment” in terms of their social uses or their function in generating solidarity among individuals within large and anonymous communities. It also emphasizes how the symbols, rituals, and practices surrounding its production and consumption can bring people together as a social adhesive by generating a shared sense of social solidarity and reinforces the collective conscience. The critical approach says that the explanation for popular culture is its’ ability to reflect and reinforce the enormous economic and cultural power of the mass media industry. It emphasizes the darker aspects of popular culture – its ubiquity and…...

Some Concepts and Definitions Before proceeding to the discussion of the applications of differential cost analysis, some basic concepts and definitions need to be introduced including fixed costs, variable costs, step costs, maximum efficiency, and surplus capacity. Fixed Costs and Variable Costs In Chapter 8 the concepts of direct and indirect costs were introduced as part of the discussion of cost analysis.

...James E Thomas CJUS 200 Reflection Paper 12/0/2014 Liberty University Law Enforcement The reflection that I have of law enforcement in recent days has been somewhat flawed by the way law enforcement has been portrayed in the media, and in news articles. The understanding of the police system in today’s society should have improved from what it was century ago, the agenda should be enforcing the law and keeping the peace amongst the people that they serve. I’ve never had an encounter with any police, but I’ve had opportunity to know how they treat others and how they target and even profile certain ethnicities. Many times I've seen law enforcement turn the their head when crime is being committed depending on ethnicity. Today we have to many police officers utilize force to get a handle on situations and in past days they have taken their forcefulness too far. In maintaining peace the police have rules that they must follow that will not go against citizen’s rights. The system has now more opportunity, and programs. The system is now structure in a way they can best help those that are found to be in their grip. In ( Hendrix, N., & Inciardi, J.

...the misappropriation of science that allows science and technology to be problematised for a generation of students enamoured and ensconced within a highly technological world. As a genre which explores technology’s perils, especially through ‘othering’ and the re-addressing of Said’s concerns of ‘Orientalism’, Science Fiction is particularly appropriate for expanding our discussions and concerns and making them relevant to the students’ own lives, not only in terms of recovery from the historical trauma of apartheid, but as future professionals who will have a substantial impact on the real future of science and technology. However, the origin of Science Fiction might encourage us to view it as an imposition from the West. This concern needs to be interoggated and questioned, so that students are encouraged to see the intersections between how the genre might offer critiques of othering, while in the process be othering and alienating itself.

...A Fox’s Tale (Tail) One day a fox was out on a walk, following the same trail that she had once followed when she was just a pup. While walking through the dense woods, it became more and more difficult for her to see where she was stepping. All of a sudden she heard a snap, followed by her own whimpering. Her beautiful tail had been caught in a bear trap. It was only after a tough struggle that she was freed. Although she was no longer trapped, she was still filled with sorrow. Her tail had been cut off and left in the trap. “Oh, how ugly I do indeed look!” Cried the fox, “won’t the other foxes laugh at me?” After racking her brain for quite some time, the fox constructed a plan to prevent being laughed at. Soon after that she called a meeting among her friends and said, “Friends! Have you ever wondered why, after all of the trouble it causes us, we carry these long bushy tails? Let us get rid of them and be free from their nuisance.” To the grief of the fox who was missing her tail, her friends had noticed just that, she was already missing her tail. They laughed aloud and replied, “You used to say that tails looked just fine when your own was okay- and still intact. Now that you’ve lost yours, you want us to lose ours too.” Just as this fox’s friends did, you should always evaluate people's intentions; they may wish to drag you down in order to make themselves feel better....

...just one month old.” The report goes on to say, “Prosecutors said one girl was just 2 years old when the abuse started in October 2002. The other girl was less than 8 months old. The sexual abuse of the boy allegedly began in December 2002, when he was just one month old.” According to The Idaho Statesman Newspaper in Boise, Idaho, “The parents are being charged with four counts of felonies. The first three include the connection with the allegations of sexual abuse by the boys, and the fourth charge addresses allowing a child to walk on dirty floors, in which resulted in infected cuts on the child’s feet.” This sounds more like a child neglect case rather than a connection of a child molestation case. I am not defending the couple in any way, but I feel there is no proof of them knowing about such acts going on between their children. Therefore, it will be hard to prosecute the couple on the molestation charges unless there is some type of evidence that is not being presented or considered until the trail. There was a young boy in Florida several years ago who was charged with the murder of his 6-year old cousin. He accidentally killed the young girl while rehearsing a wrestling move that he had seen on television. The young man was 13 at the time of the murder and was sentenced to life in jail. Imagine if his mother would have gone to trail instead of him because he was her offspring....

...FACTORS AFFECTING THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF FIRST YEAR STUDENTS IN PURPOSIVE COMMUNICATION OF QUEZON CITY POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY S.Y. 2015-2016 Chapter 1 The Problem and its Background Introduction Purposive Communication is built upon the firm foundation of logic and orderly reasoning. Purposive Communication learning progresses smoothly, step by step, from the simplest processes to the most complicated and advanced applications, each step along the way resting upon those topics which have been taken before. It is axiomatic that the understanding of the present and future lessons depends greatly on the kind of understanding of the present lesson. Within this context, Purposive Communication learning is basically like a language; if it is not learned properly from the beginning, it may become too difficult and abstract later to grasp and understand. In the study of Purposive Communication, the first topic of the study can be exceedingly important in the development of the student under an instructor. As such, concepts should be taught by the instructor and learned properly by the student with the aid of detailed explanations. This should include every available and relevant learning aid to condition the minds of the students into understanding the lesson well. Towards later part of the discussions examples are given applying the same concepts the theories to enable the students to relate their understanding of the lesson to the given examples as encountered...

...Thinking... The conceptual background to strategy, marketing and planning Stephen Cashman, February 2003 This online background paper provides a review of some of the definitions, theories and concepts underpinning strategy. As such it is intended to introduce the key concepts involved, or to form an overall reminder of the various issues relating to these areas. 1. What is strategy about and why is it so important? ‘Every company needs a strategy – either explicit or implicit.’ Costas Markides (1995) ‘An effective strategic management process has become the essential norm for businesses.’ Richard Hanscombe and Philip Norman (1993) ‘Effective strategic management is the ultimate aim of all managers.’ Financial Times, 1997 ‘The survival, growth and prosperity of any organisation depends on the quality and viability of the strategy the organisation is pursuing.’ Andrew Kakabadse, Ron Ludlow and Susan Vinicombe (1988) Indeed, such is the importance attached to the subject of strategy that one commentator on the subject, Richard Whittington (1993), reports that ‘there are thirty-seven books in print with the title Strategic Management’. Similarly a leading strategy thinker, Henry Mintzberg, and his colleagues (1998) note that ‘The literature of strategic management is vast – the number of items we reviewed over the years numbers close to 2,000 – and it grows larger every day.’ However, despite the importance given to them, thinking, writing and talking about......
