The authors used participant observation and interview to do this research. I think the method of field work that provided the most insightful information was the method of participant observation. By
It was July of 2013. After check in, I came to the notoriously long line that was the security check of John F Kennedy International Airport. My excitement to embark on my friend’s celebratory cruise was diminished by this wait. When my turn came around, I was ecstatic to almost finish the production that was a successful check, and am on my merry way. This was not the case. I had forgotten that I had a heating pain relieving device in a region of my body that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) felt necessary to investigate. After a few minutes, I found myself in a back room, being questioned, with interrogations that I found “pointless, frustrating, and unnecessary.” After this, they had sent me on my way, back to my friend and
The September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks forever changed the way our air travel industry operates. It affected the government, the airlines, airports, employees, and passengers alike. There was not as much of a threat of terrorism before 9/11, so airport security was not nearly as thorough, and at times intrusive as it is today. Through the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, the evolving threat of terrorism has not been successful in carrying out another 9/11 style attack.
Ethnography is a qualitative method of research in which the researcher takes part in the activities of a group such that they are able to complete their observations over a period of time in a natural, real-life environment.
Ethnographic methodology provides rich and complex data (Brownlow, 2012). In the ethnographic approach a researcher joined the studied group in their natural environment, stayed as a part
It is first important to define what ethnography is because it is a prominent method that social scientists use in their research (Roy, lecture 4). Professor Roy defines ethnography as looking at culture – a methodological skill of observation in a natural setting. Chambliss was able to do this with his qualitative research at Hanibal. Qualitative research, compared to quantitative, is often characterized by a depth of information from a limited number of cases (Ragin & Amoroso 28). This type of study relies on the human component of interaction in the real world. Chambliss actively engaged with
On September 11th, 2001, a tragedy took place in The United States of America. Four commercial planes were hijacked and were flown into both of the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and into a field in Shanksville, PA. This resulted in the killing of thousands of innocent American lives. But not all of the facts add up on this horrific day. Were these attacks really planned by al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden? Or did President George W. Bush secretly plan these attacks as an excuse to go to war with the Middle East? It’s hard to believe that the leader of our country would ever do something like this, but some of the evidence says otherwise.
Thanksgiving Day is a family holiday, that's why Americans and Canadians used to fly to spend this season time with the nearest and dearest. In 2016, please, forget the long lines and crowded planes last Thanksgiving as holiday travel surged.
Prior to 9/11, the security at airports were more passive rather than aggressive in how procedures were performed. Waiting areas were getting extremely crowed, security guards rarely checked luggage, and only acted on the X-ray systems going off. Planes were far more likely to fly with unsold seats. The cockpit door was usually wide open and there were no air marshals. Baggage fees only kicked in after the second bag, so most people checked luggage rather than carrying it on the plane. The only things you could buy on most flights were phone calls and alcohol. The large areas were where security need to be reinforced the most. Many people would often be hired to act as if they were part of security. "They were often unable to detect
Taking an Airport Shuttle Fort Lauderdale route requires the services of a professional transport provider. A Bus From Fort Lauderdale to Miami may be considered a scenic trip, depending on your location. However, shuttle services are not like they use to be. In fact, they are so much better. It doesn’t matter where you live in Florida, you can get a ride from any nearby airport to your destination, with no hassle.
Throughout this course I have learned many things about research at an introductory level. Research is a critical part of all of our lives in many ways. God blesses each of us with a degree of common sense and we all learn from observing others even as babies, we learned behaviors and skills by observing our parents. Walking through experiences throughout life teach us a lot we need to know as well but sometimes we have to take a better approach when we need to learn about certain things. Many of us know that what works in some situations or with certain individuals doesn’t always work or is the safest option for another situation. Controlled and precisely organized study allows scientists to compare and examine contrasting methods and concepts, also helps them to discover various approaches and be able to learn from individual’s behaviors and experiences. I will act as the case study throughout this paper in order to observe what I have learned about.
The author of the first article suggests that by experiencing fear or anxiety, individuals will exhibit various response toward their loved ones and for that reason he is observing these interactions. He is waiting at the airport before his flight this family therapist is wondering about the changes in people’s behavior because of fear of flying. As he observes the interaction between his selected people couples, families and parents with kids capture his attention. The writer supports his idea by describing some of the couples “sit close, hold hands” while others “are distant, distracted
The airline industry has seen drastic changes since September 11, 2001. The government ordered a complete shutdown for three days of not only all commercial aircraft but such carriers as domestic flights and emergency aircraft. For days after September 11th, all aircraft stayed on the ground. Even military aircraft had to receive special clearance to fly. In a ripple effect, the entire economy of the United States and the world was put on hold. The New York Stock Exchange shut its doors because of the attacks on the towers of the World Trade Center.
