You are to select a film and examine several theories of interpersonal communication discussed in your text to see how they are portrayed in the film. The focus will be on how communication is used to initiate, maintain, and terminate relationships. The film will serve as a vehicle for learning about interpersonal communication and relationships. You will analyze what the film has shown the ways people relate to one another. The paper should be 3-5 pages long, with a bibliography of at least two sources. Your textbook can be one of the sources. DO NOT go under two and a half or over four and a half pages. Your analysis should focus on issues of communication, incorporating material from the readings, your online assignments. You will need a strong introduction and a conclusion in this paper as well as identify three or four points (concepts) that you found most enlightening, controversial, or even possibly incorrect. You will be expected to discuss what individuals did, what happened, and why. Relevant communication theory and text material should be introduced for each example. You should write this paper as if you were going to demonstrate your expertise and knowledge to an individual that has little or no knowledge of communication theory. That pretend reader should learn a lot from reading your paper. The paper should be 3-5 pages, word-processed, double-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font, with a cover page. You must cite the course textbook using MLA formatting. When saving your document, include your last name and the assignment, and save as either a Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx) or a Rich Text File (.rtf). Submit this paper in the appropriate assignment dropbox in Blackboard by the deadline. Course Objectives: 1.

Theses of a close relationship using both Knapps model of relationship development and the dialectical model. ? Conflicts in relationships and the methods and styles of dealing with interpersonal conflict. ? Listening ? Self-Concept ? Non-VerbalCommunication ? Verbal Communication Select as many concepts/theories that apply to the film. Do not hesitate to go beyond and think outside of the box. As you watch the film, you may want to take notes and have yo
Using the following 3 sources ” Benefits of dog ownership: Comparative study of equivalent samples,” “Dogs and Humans Health/Mental health: from the pleasure of their company to the benefits of their assistance,” and “Companion dog acquisition and mental well-being: a community-based three-arm controlled study” I need a speech preparation outline including a bibliography.
This part of the paper requires you to go through various publicly accessible databases to examine how a given public (American or otherwise) stands on your topic. Length estimate: 6-8 pages (really depends on topic). Topic: public opinion about data privacy geographically comparison between Asia, US and EU Questions to think of for this final project: What are the views of data privacy in each specific region? What are the key similarities and differences? Since each country would have different views on data privacy, I think it is important to focus views of each specific region. Through finding out the different viewpoints, we could find a pattern of similarities and differences in each region and compare them together. The views of data privacy would have an effect on the public opinion for each region. In order to understand the effects of public opinion, we would have to focus on the research of the basics. Since the citizens have different views, there would be diverse types of data privacy within the region. How does public opinion on data privacy change in relation to the use of data? This question helps us determine what the public in each region might deem acceptable versus what is unacceptable use of data. Through this question, we can explore how public opinion might change on data privacy when the institutions collecting it are more or less transparent about their use of data, and also find similarities or differences in where each public draws the line, so to speak. How does surveillance tie into public opinion on data privacy? Surveillance capitalism is an open discussion in the U.S., and this system is also very essential for contributing to the economy. So it could create a huge impact if this system must make a change for a response to the public opinion. When the issue is openly discussed, and the public has the opportunity to access this information, how would the public view the pros and cons of data surveillance? Also, is there a transparent discussion about data privacy in every region across these areas? Do governments, institutions, and cooperation openly share their data sources and data usage? Does the fact have or not having a discussion on data privacy affect public opinions?

You will select a group in society that you think is marginalized (treated unfairly or faces inequality) and correlate the study of communication and intercultural communication to it. This will be a 5-page double spaced written essay. Select a group in society that you think is treated unfairly or faces inequality. You may choose any group that you believe faces inequality. For example, African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, Native Americans, LGBTQ, immigrants, etc. You must be able to prove these biases from a society based on research and evidence. To begin you will define communication and the importance of intercultural communication. You may discuss the historical aspects of intercultural communication and evolution over time. Then, discuss the marginalized group you selected and correlate it to a concept/chapter in the textbook. Discuss the origins (history: when, where, and how did they start) of this cultural group and the treatment that they have received past and present (when/where/why did the inequality start). Finally, provide suggestions on how (you think) the inequality can be ended or reduced. The analysis will be a 5-page typed (double spaced) paper about the topic. Remember to include an introduction, body, and summary in the paper. Please check your grammar and spelling by using Spell Check. The paper should be in proper MLA and include a title page and works cited (bibliography for sources) page. So, you should be submitting a total of 7 pages (1 title, 5 research, 1 work cited).
Communication and media have changed a great deal in just the past decade. Take a moment to think about mass media and some of the ways it influences American culture. Now think how it has affected you personally. Consider the advertisements, news stories, and other media images and content you have encountered or interacted with today. Reflect on the overall effect of these media. Are these positive messages, negative messages, or do they have another effect?
In this discussion, we will focus on best strategies for reaching these audiences. How would you communicate with various audiences? Would you use emails? Training videos? Manuals with graphics? Websites? Blogs? Other channels? For this discussion, pick two target audiences, one technical (customer support, research and development, etc.) and one nontechnical (management, marketing, sales, customers, etc.), and describe how you would educate them on a new technical product that was being developed and launched.

I need a PhD Research Proposal done for a program I am getting accepted to. I think 15 pages, with two pages or so of references, will get the job done. The topic I want to study is very, very timely and important. The study involves COVID-19, media, and racism: How Asians and Blacks were portrayed in the press. My study involves a comparison in coverage from a number of traditional newspapers and online media, and also would probe social media too, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. The study will be a qualitative content analysis with both online media and traditional media (print that is). Additionally, while the study will be a qualitative content analysis, it will also employ a discourse analysis to get a full picture of how the media really portrayed minorities in the news for news consumers. Note: The literature review will include two parts: (a) theory/theoretical concepts that link to the research; and (b) literature of research done in this field. For the research proposal this only needs to be brief. Moreover, since the study is analyzing race, the study should consider a decolonial angle. A case in point is South Africa, where they are busy decolonising degrees and decolonisation and Africanisation is huge there. Representation in the media especially with race, makes this almost essential. So, this part needs to be included. The study will break-up my analysis over a year and how it was covered in phases: The start of COVID-19 in November (19′) in China/Asia; COVID hits Europe; COVID: The Americas and Africa; and, Coverage on the post-pandemic phase (assuming this will be later this year after the second-spike in cases which is expected to be in the fall, according to leading health agencies). My work will also include (before the analysis) an introduction, background, sample, methodology, and scope and limitations. This study will obviously include a conclusion too, perhaps also future considerations for research. The media of this study will involve a variety of agencies in the Western World: USA The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post; Canada: The Globe and Mail, The National Post, The Toronto Sun; United Kingdom: The Times, The Daily Mail, The Guardian. Online agencies will include a blend of outlets in the USA, Canada and UK, like Vice.com, Medium.com, Slate.com, Metro.co.uk., Mail Online, The Post Millennial, Yahoo, Buzz Feedand MSN. These sites also post to social media so an analysis of what they post and highlight will be probed. Important to highlight is the strengths and limitations of this study. Lets start with strengths: the analysis focusses on major dailies around the world, and major online publications too. So, these outlets have scores of readers and plenty of influence on society; that is the media shapes the way we think, the way we see the world. Therefore, the media outlets being explored and how they covered COVID-19 and how they portrayed Asians and Blacks will underscore how racism still exists in the media narrative. The limitations of this work are obvious: the study does not explore broadcast news outlets, nor every single newspaper globally. With this, it would be impossible to measure everything out there: there is not enough room in this dissertation to fulfill all this, and the study of major dailies and popular online media agencies will be suffice to measure the so called temperature on coverage and how monitories were portrayed. Also, this study will not include women or other races, as it is exploring a big landscape of minorities to begin with: Asians and Blacks. Here is a breakdown of the research proposal: Dissertation title (I already have a title, so all good to go on this front) Summary of topic Short literature review Expected contribution of the study Methodology to be followed Availability of the data List of references Reasons why you are interested in the topic So, what I have provided above the breakdown for the research proposal is what you can work off for each section. Also, each section needs a heading as per the headings listed above. Important to note, for the short literature review, I would include academics who identify what qualitative content analysis is and what discourse analysis is and how they will be employed into this study. You can also give some quick examples too of recent academic studies involving minorities in the news and how qualitative content analysis and discourse analysis has revealed how the media shows bias and how they portray Asians and Blacks as outsiders in our society how they are deviant, criminal, etc. Essentially, the qualitative content analysis and the discourse analysis are tools in deconstructing the news, and how news serves as a filter to how others see the world and citizens. In the literature review, it is important to also highlight any studies/works related to the decolonial angle and its relation to the South Africa experience. Note, the expected contribution of this study will highlight the construction of news, and how the deconstruction, through a qualitative content analysis and discourse analysis, tells the story of just how minorities (Asians and Blacks) are portrayed in the news media, in this case with the coverage involving COVID-19. Moreover, the expected contribution of this study will help educate more journalists, academics, and citizens on how racism still exists in the news media and why we need to change this old way of thinking. And this study will even provide solutions to the problem at hand: more online publications to promote a more balanced news and to promote the efforts on Asians and Blacks; more academic studies on the matter; more global awareness to the issue of racism and how we need to change it; and a call to global leaders and corporations who own media to address the problem and employ more minorities as journalists and decision makers in the newsrooms or at the board level. Note, there is a heading in the proposal: Reason why you are interested in this topic. Here you can include that I have over 20 years of experience working in the media, both as a journalist and publicist. The study will allow me to make a solid and sound contribution to my fellow journalists, and society as a whole, and help others realize how racism still exists in the news and why we need to change the way in which the media cover major world issues, especially in the case of this pandemic. Also, as a publicist, many of my clients are Asians and Blacks in Canada and the USA, and in the columns I pen as a journalist I include minorities in a positive light as much as I can, so this study is my way of helping change the media narrative on a larger scale. I am a person who is innovative, believes in free speech and the rights of others, so my work will help identify the problem of racism and will offer solutions. I know this is a lot here, so if you have any questions, you can ask me anything you need. I will also need a good pool of references, not on the media coverage side (unless you decide to show explicit examples of past coverage on other issues relating to world affairs, etc), but for the areas of qualitative content analysis and discourse analysis. Please send in single spaced. I can double space. For referencing, please use MLA format.
