...The Inconclusive Ethical Case Against Manipulative Advertising
What Is Manipulative Advertising?
* According to Beauchamp, manipulation occupies a position about midway along a continuum of influences ranging from coercion, at one end, to ration persuasion, at the other.
* All of beauchamp’s examples include deceptive advertising
* False or misleading assertions or omissions that cause reasonable consumers to form erroneous judgment about the nature of the product
* Manipulative advertising is advertising that tries to favourably alter consumers’ perceptions of the advertised product by appeals to factors other than the product’s physical attributes and functional performance.
* No sharp line between manipulative and non-manipulative.
* Most common example of manipulative advertising is John Waide’s technique
* Associative advertising, which includes associating certain products with a nonmarket good. For example: using sex as a way to sell
* The linkage between product and nonmarket goods increases the product’s perceived value
* Michael Schudson describes this advertising as ‘ buy me and you will enjoy life.
The Effects of Manipulative Advertising: What the Critics Think
* John Kenneth Galbraith’s dependence effect
* The consumer does not create the want for a product; the company producing the product creates the wants that the company later satisfies.
* It’s impossible to defend production, as an entity...
While you read your chosen novels and other relevant material you should be keeping notes. The goal is to jot down ideas and thoughts as you are reading, thus making the process active. You should write something every time you read.
Your instinct may be to write your opinion of what you have read. While this is okay to include in readingnotes, reserve these comments for your reading log. Your activereadingnotes should be of more substance in order to formulate an essay-worthy comparison. The suggestions below should help guide your note writing. Jot other elements you want to investigate on the back of this sheet.
Use the margin of your page! Note the date, chapter and/or page numbers, as well as ideas for comparison. Limit what you put in the margin, but use it to help you access information for easy reference and citations.
Sample Questions to answer:
• How does the author develop elements of the novel:
• What devices have been used?
• Are foreshadowing and flashback integral in the development of the novel’s elements?
• What is the author’s lexicon like and how does this reflect the novel’s elements?
• Is the language formal or informal? How does this contribute to the author’s...
...Elements of Active Listening
1. Spend more than 50% of your communication time listening. (This is especially important when in a leadership role) .
2. Give others a chance to air their views completely before you give your opinion.
3. Listen for ideas, not just facts. (Listening only for facts prevents you from grasping a speaker’s meaning).
4. Avoid jumping to conclusions when someone is speaking. (Don’t anticipate what a person is trying to say.)
5. Try to stay interested in what a person is saying even though the delivery may be boring or wordy. (Avoid the tendency for your mind to wander. Use your “thought speed” to organize what the speaker is saying).
6. Keep your mind open and delay evaluation. (Keep listening for ideas and avoid the tendency to become upset by strong words that may tend to irk you).
7. Avoid rushing or interrupting the speaker. (Make sure the speaker has finished before you change the subject).
8. Ask questions to clarify points and to let the speaker know you’re paying attention.
9. Tell yourself that every person is a person of worth and is important enough to listen to. (Make a firm commitment to listen to other people).
10. Give full attention. (Resist faking attention or planning your rebuttal).
11. Listen between the lines. (Listen for feelings and messages that are implied but not stated in words).
12. Remain attentive to nonverbal clues.
13. Use empathy when listening. (Try to understand the speaker’s point of view, and...

successfully. Clearly, the ability to master reading is an essential skill critical to the
success of each student.
“Tips for ActiveReading” is a set of proven strategies for mastering the content of academic reading (with a bonus at the end!) Students who practice these tips create a
retrieval system of information, but more importantly, they facilitate both short-term as
well as long-term memory that will serve them well throughout their college career,
indeed, throughout their lives in every arena which requires a thorough mastery of
reading. Here, then, are nine “Tips for ActiveReading”:
1) Make use of your attention span--whatever it is!
All of us have experienced the loss of concentration on what we read and our mind beginning to drift. Most of us feel guilty when we discover that we're wandering away from the page. Nevertheless, we can use that frustration to our benefit as readers.
As you prepare to begin a reading assignment, step back and watch yourself reading the assignment. Make a mental...
The Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) role installs Active Directory and turns a Windows Server 2008 computer into a domain controller. AD is a database of objects in computer it is used for authentication for users and computers. Active Directory is the foundation of a Windows network environment. This directory service enables administrators to create and manage users and groups, set network-wide user and computer policies, manage security, and organize network resources. Provides a single point of administration of network resources, such as users, groups, shared printers, shared files, servers, and workstations. Provides centralized authentication and authorization of users to network resources. Along with DNS, provides domain-naming services and management for a Windows domain. Enables administrators to assign system policies, deploy software to client computers, and assign permissions and rights to users of network resources.
RODC is read only domain controller used in remote locations such as branch office
Terminal server allows remote desktop applications.
