We all have been in that situation that requires us to be professional but also still show our personality. It is not easy trying to balance them either. One could decide to just be strictly professional or entirely show one’s personality. In some workplaces one needs to show clients one is always professional. Certain workplaces have dress codes and policies of what one can or cannot wear. Trying to figure out can be hard and sometimes impossible. This paper explains the nonverbal communication with the artifacts one wears. By looking at clothing and its purpose and what else it can bring to the table. Along with accessories and how they play a role in our image. Focusing on eye glasses and what they communicate to one’s co-workers.

Effectiveness Critique In the article, “Appropriation of Mainstream News: How Saturday Night Live Changed the Political Discussion”, authors, Angela D.

Another issue surfaced through a statement made by an injured veteran officer, “I just wish I’d shot more of these bastards. If it was 20 years earlier, had of them would be in the morgue by now, and you and me would be at the bar drinking, right?” He also stated “mother [bleeb] are lucky that I was shooting rubber bullets.” These statements demonstrate the frustrations and attitudes of a veteran officer towards the community, how policing has changed during this officer’s tenure, and his statements reflect poorly on the law enforcement as a whole.
A Summary of Skolnick’s “Working Personality” CRMJ-2010 In “A Sketch of the Policeman’s Working Personality,” Jerome Skolnick discusses and analyzes how a police officer’s personal outlook is affected by his or her involvement in police work, creating an “us versus them” mind-set, as well as the frequent
Saturday Night Live Saturday Night Live, shortened as SNL, is a sketch-comedy show that has aired since 1975 on NBC. The variety show created by Lorne Michaels have boosted the careers of Bill Murray, Steve Martin, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Amy Poelher and Jimmy Fallon to name a few. Saturday Night Live is what most comedians aspire to be on and what celebrities want to host. What keeps the show alive is the variety of characters brought on by the cast members and the weekly update segment. As new cast members enter so do new characters and as old cast members leave so do their characters. What keeps the show alive is how it constantly evolves with the times, keeping up with current affairs, making jokes relevant to what is going on in society. An example of keeping
This includes mobs and protest, which although extreme and violent, proves to be a popular form of expression. On the other hand, a more pacifistic approach is comedic satire, which pokes fun at the issue one may find fault in. For example, Saturday Night Live mocks Donald Trump and his administration with outrageous costumes and makeup and over exaggerated dialogue between depictions of key cabinet members. The rise in popularity of SNL due to these skits is shown by the rising popularity of actors such as Alec Baldwin, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy, who portray members within the government. Some of the problems addressed by the writers of SNL include the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election and the believed lack of professionalism displayed by Trump. By addressing these issues, SNL shines a light to their expansive audience about their belief in reform within the government. Although the response is varied, the intensity is more peaceful when compared to some more violent protests that have occurred within

SNL political parody skits usually shape the way the audience perceive the campaign.
Police random preventive patrol by a mobile police force was the hallmark of the Reform Era of policing. Police officers were expected to remain in their “rolling fortresses,” going from one call to the next with all due haste (Manning, 1971). Officers were evaluated based on outputs, such as miles driven, calls handled, tickets issued and
Austin Armour UFID 4264-9608 In today’s society police forces all across the nation are undergoing extreme scrutiny due to numerous instances that have taken place. While the media seems to be focusing on the negative aspects of these instances and stirring even more controversy, I think that a pivotal part of the story isn’t being told. This part of the story comes from the officers’ perspective; the perspective of the people that are sworn to uphold the law and to protect the citizens in their community. This paper is designed to bring light to that side of the story, the side of the officer, the importance of their position, the dangers that they face on a daily basis to protect members of the community, and how as a public we can better understand and appreciate what police officers do for us each and every day.
I believe that wearing red pants with a stripe tie at work does not convey a highly professional image. The individuals wearing scrubs in the picture looked uncoordinated, because their scrubs have different colors. I noticed that nobody were wearing name badges for identification. I love how they were all smiling in the picture and I view them as friendly individuals who were ready to work. All staff in the picture seems happy at what they do and it appears like everyone gets along in the team. In my observation, the individuals in the group have a good open communication which makes them professional. Likewise, all individuals in the picture looked clean and well-groomed. The lady wearing skirt looked professional, because she used a moderate length of skirt which is suitable for her job duties. Lastly, I noticed that all the ladies were only wearing light make-up that compliments their skin
Good Cop, Bad Cop, Fat Cop? Fitness and How it Affects Law Enforcement C.A. Jordan CJ 3001-101 Spring 2018 Good Cop, Bad Cop, Fat Cop? Fitness and How it Affects Law Enforcement When the general public thinks of a police officer, there are often two mindsets in modern times that are widely accepted
The cartoon above by Pat Bagley of the Salt Lake Tribune makes a bold generalization of white American police officers discriminating against civilians by their ethnicity, particularly African-Americans, a grave problem that has sparked nationwide protest of civil rights cases, including the Ferguson case and the Zimmerman case. Judging by the different elements in this cartoon, Bagley is attacking white police officers for their hostility towards Americans of African descent in contrast to their general acceptance of people with their own skin color. The artist divides his cartoons into 2 distinct, opposite halves. One, titled “Officer Friendly” depicts a police officer (presumably white) riding in a shiny police car waving his hand in greeting

VIDEO: Actual real-life shoot-outs of cops vs. very bad people ... A cop on the street endures continual contact with drunks, druggies, the mentally disturbed, and violent criminals. On a daily basis, they deal with life-and-death situations, and know quite well that any situation - without notice - can turn very bad where the only immediate option is to use deadly force necessary for their own personal safety and survival. Those who are family-members and close friends of a law enforcement officer are also fully aware of the public dangers and human risk that are actually involved with the job. On the other hand, a lot of the general public typically has an ill-conceived and unrealistic notion that a cop has full control in any situation in
The Code of Silence Some argue that corrupt police officers are simply the product of a corrupt culture of the agency they work for. These officers are socially introduced to a number of informal rules when they begin employment. This process and these rules serve two main purposes. First,
