Comparing Historical Communication Wow, what do I think of this topic? I’ll start off with elocution (behaviorism). During the 1700s elocution was considered an art form, and a formal discipline. Elocution encompasses a number of important principles, articulation, inflection, accent, voice, and gesture. The study of this topic seems to me, to be very important. Humans in general need to convey the meaning behind their message. Without this course of study and its effects on our modern world we as a species might not be as advanced as we are. Imagine one of our nation’s speakers approaches a podium in a foreign country. He is not dressed in proper attire. He gives his speech about how trade between our nations could benefit us both. Unfortunately he is slouched over and doesn’t move or gesture to convey the feelings and motives behind his speech. He delivers the speech without the correct intonation and volume. He doesn’t use effective wording and a rich tone of voice. I imagine witnessing this would be a catastrophe for any relations between two foreign nations. Without the study of behaviorism and the methods of elocution, we would still be living in hovels, and most likely living in fear of the people around us. My point of view about the interpretive studies or (humanism) would have to start with Classical Greek and Hellenistic Humanism. The classical period in Greece, and the Greek-influenced period that directly followed, was the wellspring for philosophy and art in Western Civilization.
It featured: * Human-centered sculpture and painting, in an increasingly natural and realistic style * A fascination with mathematics and geometry, leading to advances in architecture * A development of the art of drama and the creation of great works of theater * Writings on the subject of virtue and excellence
From this Era we gained some of the greatest…...

Historical Cost

...The historical cost accounting is an accounting technique that values an asset for balance sheet purposes at the price paid for the asset at the time of its acquisition. It is usually used in combination with other measurement bases. For example, inventories are usually carried at the lower of cost and net realizable value, on the other hand marketable securities are usually carried at market value, and entities prefer to carry pension liabilities at their present value. The main advantage of using historical cost accounting model is its simplicity and certainty. Most entities know what they have paid for the assets when they purchased them. Similarly they also know what proceeds they received in exchange for their obligations. Historical cost method is a very objective method because usually subjective estimates are not involved. The drawback of historical cost accounting model is that it cannot deal with the effects of changing prices of non-monetary assets. Therefore some entities prefer to use current cost basis instead of historical cost accounting model. The most prominent disadvantage of this method is that book values may be based on badly out of date costs. This becomes more of a problem during periods of high inflation. Therefore, historical cost does not generally reflect current market valuation or fair value of an asset or liability. Historical-cost financial statements do not provide information that is relevant to investors. Fair value is defined as the amount...

...therefore a deliberate, intellectual activity by which the practice of nursing is approached in an orderly, systematic manner also known as the nursing process (Walker & Avant, 2011). Historical Timeline Theories are concepts that have been investigated and developed into theory to guide and explain nursing practice. Florence Nightingale was known as the pioneer of nursing theory, the first nursing theory that focuses on the manipulation of the environment for the benefit of the patient which has directed nursing practice for 140 years (George, 20011). Nightingale’s theory is based upon the belief that the force for healing resides within the human being and that, if the environment is appropriately supportive, humans will seek to heal themselves. Her 13 canons indicate the areas of environment of concern to nursing including ventilation, warming, health of houses , taking food, bedding, light, cleanliness of rooms and walls, personal cleanliness, chattering hopes and advices, and observation of the sick (George, 2011). As nursing evolved other theorist began to arise throughout the 1990’s. In 1952, Hildegard Peplau’s theory described the nurse client relationship as being centered on the communication between the nurse and patient by using therapeutic communication to enhance the relationship, thus promoting healing. The three phases of this relationship are orientation, working, and termination (George, 2011). The relationship is initiated by the......

Historical Need

...Ana V. COM-126 Historical need People live in a world of media and technology, making it our way of communication. Unfortunately, we are becoming more attached to these needs that our communication is lacking of reality. Therefore, "it is clear that mass-media influence our values, attitude, culture etc." (Enache, R., Pescaru, A., Stan, E., & Safta, C. (2010), p. 31). This media has a long history behind its back and has walked a long way to be transformed into this large communication connection we all live with today. Like all stories with a beginning, media started in the early years of 3000 B.C with the introduction of the alphabet, devised by the Semites (“Major Events in the History of Mass Communications”, n.d.). During this early era of media, not only the early form of paper was invented by the Egyptians, but the printing method was created. Johannes Gutenberg, with his printing invention, opened “the possibility of distributing identical messages to many people located in different places" (Bogart, 1991, p. 63) - this big step would really begin mass media, giving it a start to the printing production of books. A follow up century which would take a big leap in the media history is the Telegraph Era. From 1800s to 1900s the first telegraph line would be first introduced by Samuel Morse, along with the invention of the telephone and radio. These inventions took media development into a big significant time in which more and more people would......

...HISTORICAL PROJECT 2570 bc The Great pyramid of giza completed The Pharaohs built the pyramids and today archaeologists still argue about how they achieved this feat. Ancient records show there were managers for each of the four faces of the Great Pyramid, responsible for overseeing their completion. We know there was some degree of planning, execution and control involved in managing this project. 208 BC Construction of the Great Wall of China Later still, another of the Seven Wonders of the World was built. Since the Qin Dynasty (221BC-206BC), construction of the Great Wall had been a large project. According to historical data, the labor force was organized into three groups: soldiers, common people and criminals. The Emperor Qin Shihuang ordered millions of people to finish this project. 1917 The Gantt chart Developed by Henry Gantt (1861-1919) One of the forefathers of project management, Henry Gantt is best-known for creating his self-named scheduling diagram, the Gantt chart. It was a radical idea and an innovation of worldwide importance in the 1920s. One of its first uses was on the Hoover Dam project started in 1931. Gantt charts are still in use today and form an important part of the project managers' toolkit. 1956 The American Association of Cost Engineers (now AACE International) Formed Early practitioners of project management and the associated specialties of planning and scheduling, cost estimating, cost and schedule control formed the......

Historical Materialism

...and heavy, the river floods, bursts its banks, and may take a new course. This represents the dialectical part of Marx’s famous theory of dialectical (or historical) materialism." Historical materialism is a methodological approach to the study of society, economics, and history first articulated by Karl Marx (1818–1883) as the materialist conception of history. It is a theory of socioeconomic development according to which changes in material conditions (technology and productive capacity) are the primary influence on how society and the economy are organised. Historical materialism looks for the causes of developments and changes in human society in the means by which humans collectively produce the necessities of life. Social classes and the relationship between them, plus the political structures and ways of thinking in society, are founded on and reflect contemporary economic activity. Since Marx's time, the theory has been modified and expanded by thousands of Marxist thinkers. It now has many Marxist and non-Marxist variants. Objectives of Study: • To define Historical Materialism. • To discuss about the basic philosophy behind the concept of historical Materialism by Karl Marx. • To study about the Recent Versions of Historical Materialism. • To findout the limitations of the Concept of Historical Materialism.

...Historical Perspectives of Abnormal Psychology PSY 410 December 23, 2013 Historical Perspectives of Abnormal Psychology Introduction In psychology, there are many branches such as cognitive psychology, behavioral psychology, and developmental psychology, but the most difficult would be abnormal psychology. It is difficult because the word “abnormal” is difficult to define. Defining “abnormal” is difficult because it means an individual is not following what is socially normal, but with different cultures, there is no way to set a normal standard of socially acceptable behavior (University of Texas, n.d.). “Abnormal” can be defined as expressing behavior that is either destructive to themselves, family, friends, or co-workers (University of Texas, n.d.). With this definition, individuals need to be able to understand the origins of abnormal psychology, the challenges in defining and diagnosing normal and abnormal behavior, how it has evolved into methodical discipline today, and the theoretical models that help diagnose and treat irregular behaviors. Ancestries of Abnormal Psychology Historically, abnormal psychology is a reasonably young science of approximately one hundred years, although there have been abundant recognized incidents of emotional disorders (Hansell & Damour, 2008). These incidents found in the Bible, which describes people suffering from illnesses known as depression and schizophrenia in today’s world (Hansell & Damour, 2008). In some......

Historical Exploration

...1.1 Historical Exploration Digitization of Information Digitization is the representation of an object, image, sound, document or a signal by a discrete set of points or samples. The result is called digital representation. Strictly speaking, digitizing means simply capturing an analog signal in digital form. For a document the term means to trace the document image or capture the "corners" where the lines end or change direction. The term digitization is often used when diverse forms of information, such as text, sound, image or voice, are converted into a single binary code. Computers predate to the Digital Age. Prior to the 1950s, computers were analog, using vacuum tubes. Later, vacuum tubes were used in conjunction with diodes. Like the digital computers that came later, analog computers used binary logic, but instead of being directly controlled by a program consisting of 1s and 0s, the state of the vacuum tube was changed by a change in voltage. The voltage change was analogous to a 1 (power on) versus a 0 (power off). In 1956, MIT built the TX0, the first general-purpose, programmable computer to use transistors. Digitization occurs in two parts: Discretization and Quantization. Discretization is the reading of an analog signal A, and, at regular time intervals (or frequency), sampling the value of the signal at the point. Each such reading is called a sample and may be considered to have infinite precision at this stage. Quantization is when the samples are......

EXCEPTION TO THE HISTORICAL COST BASIS OF ACCOUNT REVALUATION OF PROPERTY PLANT EQUIPMENT Under IFRS it is acceptable, but not required to restate the values of property, plant and equipment to a fair value; fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged or a liability settled between knowledgeable, willing partners in an arm’s length transaction. Such a policy must be applied to all asset of a particular class. It would therefore be acceptable for an entity to revolve free hold properties every three (3) years. The revaluation must be made with sufficient regularity to ensure that the carrying value does not differ materially from market value in subsequent years. A surplus on revaluation would be recovered as a reserve movement not as income. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT Under IFRS and US GAAP derivative financial instruments are stated at fair value (mark to market) with movement recorded in the income statement. FINANCIAL REPORTING IN HYPER INFLATIONARY ECONOMIES IFRS requests a separate method of accounting in currencies deemed to be hyper inflationary. The characteristics of a hyper inflation include the population......

Historical Cost

...Accounting Communication Tatiana Egipti ESSAY "What are the arguments for and against continuing the use of historical costs in accounting?" Under Historical Cost valuation method all assets are presented on the balance sheet at their nominal (original) cost at the time of their acquisition. The Historical Cost method is the method prescribed by US GAAP for use by US companies. The proponents of the Historical Cost method often point out that one of the main advantages of such method is verifiability of initial cost information. This is true because the assets’ historical costs are based on actual transaction information, not merely estimates or hypothetical transactions. Thus, the costs are measured and presented objectively and are less susceptible to manipulation by management. There is also the Cost Efficiency advantage due to the fact that most times cost information is readily available and requires very minimal effort to obtain and verify. Additionally, determination of Historical Cost does not require any estimation by accountants and can be easily substantiated for audit purposes. Because of the objectivity of Historical Costs, information produced by accounting systems based on such methodology is easily understood by the end users. On the downside, many critics of the Historical Cost Accounting argue that usefulness of such approach diminishes in the periods of inflation when the purchasing power of money changes while the book values remain unchanged.

The battle analysis methodology is a process for systematic study of a battle or campaign. b. This process takes the form of a checklist that ensures completeness in examining the critical aspects of the chosen subject. c. There are two forms of the Battle Analysis: Basic and Advanced. Both utilize the same four steps, but the Advanced is more complex and detailed. Also, the Advanced analyzes the strategic influences on the battle. 2. Format: The checklist is divided into four steps, each of which builds on the previous one(s) to provide a logical order for the study. a. The four steps are: (1) Define the Subject/Evaluate the sources. (2) Review the Setting (Set the Stage). (3) Describe the Action. (4) Assess the Significance of the Action. b. In the first step, you decide what battle you are going to study. In the next two, you gather the information necessary for a thorough and balanced study, and organize it in a logical manner to facilitate analysis. In the last step, you analyze the information to derive “lessons learned.” 3. Purpose: The battle analysis methodology is a guide to help ensure that important aspects of the study of a historical battle or campaign are not forgotten.

Historical Places

...“Historical Places” The Fort Santiago, National Museum, some part of Intramuros, the Rizal Park, and Paco Park are the five historical places here in Manila that we went to. It was a great chance and opportunity for me to see and visit them, since aside from Rizal Park, it was my first time to be in those places. The activity gave me a meaningful experience for I gained much information beyond those written on books. It was awesome and fun having a tour in our country’s historical spots increasing our appreciation to these beautiful scenery of the past even until now. Our first stop was in Intramuros. There, we took pictures and enjoyed a little walk above the mighty wall. We went on up to the wider part where some realistic cannons are displayed. Thereafter, we took some rest and went on to the National Museum. Before entering, we were reminded about some strict rules upon going inside the museum. I was comfortable inside for the place was cool and clean. I was amazed on the different artworks and paintings created by our Filipino painters, especially the “Spoliarium” by Juan Luna. It was so magnificent and large that I was inspired with the effort and time he spent to finish the painting. There were more or less a thousand of artworks displayed in the national museum and all are unique, some were unfinished because of a closed reason and some were too old but still can be appreciated because of the impact of art in the eyes. For me, it was......

...RUNNING HEADER: Historical Historical Foundations Lisa Sayeh American InterContinental University RUNNING HEADER: Historical Abstract In the Twelfth century Latin was revered as the language of the times. Spreading to different sections of the population resulted in different dialects that became unrecognizable to everyone. Later in the century there were few people who were considered to be literate and they are the ones who help higher positions. RUNNING HEADER: Historical Latin language was the way of communication in the Twelfth century, having a higher demand for communication and the official language of the government, business, education and religion within Western France. With Latin being the living language of the times borrowing dialects from other areas, made it harder for locals in one area to be understood in another location. Just like with any language there are differences from one area to the next. The readings were intended and composed for a specific audience; the chivalric writing of the High Middle Ages was built on the earlier traditions, while integrating ancient roots based on the literature that was sung by the courtly bards. Latin was mainly influenced by the Greek; however Western Europe had a big influence from so far away. This was back in the Golden Age ranging from 70 BCE to 14CE, with poets and prose writers became a huge part in the heritage and the educational heritage from this time.

Historical Foundations

...Historical Foundations Laketa Byrd American InterContinental University Abstract Latin was once the official language used in religion, education, law, business and government until the sixteenth century. Although Latin’s were able to adapt to the native language of other regions, the Latin language became less used and less recognizable to people and many vernacular languages were already beginning to form and spread. Because the vernacular language was easier for anyone to be able to read and write, it became the native language in the later part of the middle ages. Before this time, most texts and literature was written by either the French or Latin and only by those that were superior in literacy and education, professional and rich as they were the main ones using and able to read and write in Latin. When average everyday people started learning how to read and write, they created their own language as a way of communicating with each other, the vernacular language. This language was later used in in everyday life. In this report, I’ll discuss the origin of the vernacular language, how it became widespread and the impact this language had on society, religion and the Latin language. Historical Foundations Latin was once the only language of the Roman Catholic Church and was one of many common languages being used to worship God and was mainly used among the rich and those that were educated and highly literate to help people......
