In “Identity, Authority, and learning to Write in New Workplaces,” Elizabeth Wardle attempts to explain how identity and authority issues affect the process of enculturation for workers in new environments. Wardle argues that the issues of identity and authority can affect one’s assimilation in a new working environment and that miscommunication with the two can lead to one being viewed as a “tool” and stress.
Ruth Benedict was an American anthropologist and folklorist who greatly influenced philosophy through her studies of isolated societies. Her theory of cultural relativism has met both great acclaim and vehement criticism as an explanation of morality and behavior. Stepping away from the stance of ethical absolutism she calls us to take a different and perhaps harrowing approach, examining morals as socially approved customs rather than immovable and eternal cornerstones of all cultures. I argue that Benedict, through her examination of indigenous cultures, provides a sound argument for the relativity of morality – and the consequent lack of a universal moral standard to which all humans can be held.

155). There are many types of tests and approaches to cognitive assessments depending on the age of the person and symptoms currently experienced (Cordell et al. 147). These assessments are combined to ensure that there is a clear reason for concern, however, in the film, simply memory testing is done. During sessions with a neurologist, it is important if an informant, someone who has witnessed the change in cognition, is present during the diagnostic process (Cordell et al. 147). After informing Alice of this, she, alongside her husband, is tested through the repetition of sentences and ability to memorize a name and address. Alice’s neurologist merely tests her memory, while excluding other important examinable areas. If the cognitive assessments cause further concerns, a full dementia evaluation is conducted (Cordell et al. 147).
Many of us have had experience in one way or another with friends or family members developing cognitive difficulty, but for most it didn’t happen all at once with an accident. We are given time to slowly adapt to the new course life has taken. Alan, Cathy, Kelly, friends, and family woke up one day and everything was different from that day
Evidence of significant cognitive decline from a previous level of performance in one or more cognitive domains — such as complex attention, executive function, learning, memory, language, perceptual-motor or social cognition.
The daughter of Japanese immigrants to the United States, Mitsuye Yamada was born in Japan during her mother’s return visit to her native country. In 1942, she and her family were incarcerated and then relocated to a camp in Idaho. The Executive Order 9066 signed by President Roosevelt in February 1942 was the reason Mitsuye and her family were incarcerated. The Japanese attack on Pearl Habor in December 1941, gave military authorities the right to remove any and all persons from “military areas.”

In Serial episode one by journalist Sarah Koenig, neglects to use more of the valuable information contained in Asia McLean’s letters because she was biased about what would help her narrative, but these letters foreshadowed what would happen later on. The letters written by Asia McLean could’ve been taken more seriously by both the state and Koenig. Although she understands the letters importance and tries to get in contact with Asia, she still leaves out many of the valuable things that Asia was saying in the letters. Asia states, “I’m trying to reach your lawyer to schedule a possible meeting with the three of us.”
I agree with Ms. Shanteau, abuse is abuse no matter what form it rears its ugly head. She expressed her inner feelings from the depth of her soul. The emotional tortures she endured by Flint and his wife most likely would still have been repugnant to her as if she was beaten with a whip or tied to a tree. I could never conceive the daily anguish she must have endured trying to outsmart a rapist and to be made to feel and believe she was less than human. No flint allowed her to slide or not beat her for his own self-interested. Perhaps, she would have made less money or be of no value if disfigured; he had no humanity. A Slave owner and the word humanity together are an oxymoron.
Mrs. Leslie Steiner talked about the secret of domestic violence (a true sad story of her crazy love). Although she did not look like a victim, she was one of the domestic violence victims at the age of 22. At that time, she didn’t know anything about domestic violence none the sign of the violence. I understand that it is not easy to evaluate someone by their appearance or behavior because we can’t read their mind. It seems like love is blind for Mrs. Leslie because she was deeply in love with a troubled man and didn’t know that he was abusing her. Indeed, no one will show a hint of violence or control or anger at the beginning when he or she loves someone. Therefore, Mrs. Leslie didn’t think that the man she loved would do such a crazy thing
Susan McClary’s scholarly article, A Musical Dialect from the Enlightenment: Mozart’s Piano Concerto in G Major, K. 453, Mvt. 2, starts off with her recalling a time after watching a performance of the concerto with a colleague and the two of them confessing different opinions about the soloist’s performance. McClary, who liked the performance, notes that soloist articulates “unusual compositional strategies indicated in Mozart’s texts”. The argument ends with the two not only about the piece and Mozart, but also about the significance of the eighteenth-century. McClary’s article attempts to critique the perfection of Mozart’s works.
