6. The dialogue between Julius and Gerry demonstrated nonverbal communication in between their dialogues. While one was talking the other the other communicated with their facial expressions of disagreement and anger (Schmeidler, 101). It gives a sign of how one feels while taking in what is said to them before it’s their turn to respond and protect their argument. Both were attempting to achieve dominance over the other in their debate (Schmeidler, 98). 8. When Gerry and Julius argue they can arguably be participating in intercultural communication due to the differences of their backgrounds (Schmeidler, 147). During the time period of Remember the Titans, African-Americans had a co-culture living in a larger and more Caucasian-dominant nation (Schmeidler, 146). This was not limited to the Titans football team with more white fans which led to Julius arguing why the black players aren’t treated as fair as the white players. Despite also communicating nonverbally during their confrontations, they understood each other more clearly coming from low-context cultures in which “people derive much information from the words of a message and less information from nonverbal and environmental cues (Schmeidler, 147). They derived much information from each other through words from a heated argument on who’s right. Aside from the town that lacked collectivism towards African-Americans, Gerry acknowledged that the T.C. Williams Titans must rely on a more collectivistic culture, which values collaboration, teamwork, and group achievement (Schmeidler, 149). However, Julius doesn’t believe his argument stating that Gerry doesn’t care about the black athletes, which causes Julius to have a more individualistic culture valuing personal achievement (Schmeidler, 149). The argument between Julius and Gerry, though, would lead to a higher value of a collectivistic culture after…...

Funny Boy Postmodernism Essay

...their very own purpose, both cultures fight for their portion of the country. Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) used to be full of Tamils, however, the Sinhalese culture soon took over as they became the majority. Since they are all over the country, they feel that they are the only ones who should have rights. Due to this selfish behaviour, Tamil people have almost no right or privilege within the country. The novel can be analyzed from the Sinhalese or from the Tamil perspective when using the postmodernism theory. Within the novel Arjie and his whole family are Tamil, while Aunt Radha`s `boyfriend`Anil is and Arjies boyfriend Shehan are both Sinhalese. Since the civil war has begun, nothing could ever be right with the two different culutures. Arjies grandma, `ammachi` could never find the respect for even the utmost respectable Sinhalese ever since her father was brutally murdered by them. So, any relative of hers knows it would not make sense to be affiliated with a Sinhalese. Arjie wasn’t well aware of this and didn’t truly understand any of the conflict between them until his father moved him to a more strict school, more like an academy. This is where he witnessed true discrimination and property destruction of Sinhaleses to Tamil. He realized he was located at the very bottom of the scale and life was only going to get tougher. Only with the help of Shehan and his intelligence which benifitted his relationship with the head of the academy, he was capable of......

Newspaper Coverage of the Increase in the Unemployment Rate in the Bahamas

...criticize the PLP and also to urge them to work harder, in order to improve the unemployment condition in The Bahamas. From The Nassau Guardian’s reporting I felt this newspaper presented the statistical information but downplayed the seriousness of this matter, relayed it with indifference and tired to put a positive spin on it. I think both newspapers coverage would have been better if they had interviewed unemployed persons as well as the Minister of Labor to get their views on the increase. In addition, their articles only talked about the unemployment rate in New Providence and Grand Bahama. Is unemployment better or worse on other islands? References Baran, S. J. (2006).

Barbie Doll

...inhabitants into “Barbie Dolls”. From this poem you may conclude that society compares women to Barbie dolls, which in turns reflects the qualities society values in women. The symbols, tone, and comparisons between the girl, “Girl” and “Barbie Doll” allows us to see how society expects certain traits from females. Both “Barbie Doll” by Marge Piercy and “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid reinforce the idea that women should be submissive leads to them feeling inferior in comparison to men. It also reinforce that patriarchy is all around us and we beome influenced by it at an young age. Kincaid talks about how women are trapped under patriarchy and questions the notion of womanhood prescribed by the dominant culture. When speaking on the dominant culuture it characterizes women with domesticity and femininity. There has been some recent attempts to liberate women from the stereotypical gender roles. However, even though women attain similar jobs as men, they are still unable to get away from the patriarchal norms because of the social systems still exists. It is so deeply rooted in our culture’s history that’s that is all that is known. There are women out there that is aware of the idealized notions of womanhood that surrounds them.
