Human Response to Authority
The phrase ‘don’t tell me what to do’ is one of the first negative responses that we learn as kids. For example, when a person’s brother or sister tries forcing a task out of him or her, the response is usually similar to that. However, what if that reaction is not learned, but merely a natural response to authority? In the podcast ‘The Bad Show’, they explore that very question with experiments and found that humans do not take to authority unless their mind trusts and respects where the authority comes from. Humans will obey authority only if they can justify the commands given. In the 1960’s, Stanley Milgram was interested in human response to authority. His interest was piqued when war criminal Adolf Eichmann stated on trial that he was simply “following orders” when he ordered the death of millions of Jews. The idea made Milgram wonder if humans were obedient to major authority or if people used authority to justify doing bad things. He conducted an experiment where he collected 40 participants ranging from every end of the social spectrum. He put each individual in a room where they were asked to shock another person whom they called the ‘student’, every time that he or she got an answer wrong. One of the things they found in the experiment was that the participants continuously shocked the students, simply because they were told to do so (Cherry, “The Milgram Obedience Experiment”). The question posed from this experiment is: why do humans respond to authority? To answer this question, we must first establish what obedience is. “Obedience is a form of social influence where an individual acts in response to a direct order from another individual who is usually an authority figure. It is assumed that without such an order, the person would not have acted in this way”…...

Let's Play Tennis

...The Writing Style of an Apology “An Apology for Using the Word 'Heart' in Too Many Poems” is a poem whose theme circles around how the author, Hayden Carruth, attempts to persuade people to use the word heart with emotion behind it. The title is what captures the reader's attention to this poem. When first reading the word apology, people usually think of it as a regretful acknowledgment which is along the lines of saying, “I'm sorry.” But not this particular apology. Also, when reading the words “heart” or thinking of “love”, the first thought is usually a great feeling and happiness. The author uses his apology as more of a defense and explanation as to what he thinks of the heart. He also gives his viewpoint on how people use the ideal of love so freely. Carruth's writing style stands out the most throughout this poem. He opens and ends the poem with a question, refers to the hear as 'it' in the first stanza, and displays a strong uncertainty of the importance of the heart in the first stanza to dehumanize the value of the word “heart”. In the poem, the author opens and closes the poem with a question. The first line of the poem says, “What does it mean? Lord knows; least of all I.”(Carruth 1). Carruth is asking the reader what does love mean and acknowledges that he is the last one to know. Being that all three of his marriages ended in divorce could be a reason that Carruth has this uncertainty of the heart, but he still continues on with the poem to give the reader......

Poem Analysis: Those Winter Sundays

...Robert Hayden 1913-1980 Those winter Sundays Sundays too my father got up early And put his clothes on in the blueblack cold, Then with cracked hands that ached From labor in the weekday weather made Banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him. I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking. When the rooms were warm, he’d call, And slowly I would rise and dress, Fearing the chronic angers of that house, Speaking indifferently to him, Who had driven out the cold And polished my good shoes as well. What did I know, what did I know Of love’s austere and lonely offices? Poem “Those Winter Sundays” is wrote by Robert Hayden, generally seen as a crafted lyric on a universal theme---paternal love, describing a past day and showing a present reverence for author’s father. The title “Those Wither Sundays” emphasizes the time background. It is Sundays, not Tuesdays or Fridays. Sundays are days at home, days completely belongs to ourselves, days that we see our families the most. Hayden recalls the past and realizes how much he had to thank his father. It was a normal Sunday in winter when the author was a little boy; his father got up early, made the fire with his “cracked hands”, woke him up and polished shoes for him. The theme is presented directly and explicitly through every rich physical detail. The poem doesn’t use a masculine pronoun; it sounds more like a woman’s. Through the choice of the gender of voice, I can see the speaker is a soft and sensitive......

Windshield Survey

...Windshield Survey Hayden Idaho Geographic Assessment My community is Hayden Lake Idaho, zip code 83835. Hayden Lake is in Kootenai County and located in the northern part of the state about 90 miles from the Canadian border. Hayden Lake shares the same zip code as the city of Hayden located next door to it. Size is 0.68 square miles. Elevation: 2,239 feet and there is 40 miles of shore line (City-Data.com, n.d.). The shore line is heavily populated with homes and has little public access. Hayden Lake is fed by streams and springs. Population is 575. Coeur d’Alene Indians initially inhabited the area around Hayden Lake. The area provided excellent hunting and fishing, and an abundant supply of huckleberries and bulbs. Good huckleberry picking still exists within a few miles from Hayden. Hayden Lake was formed by glacial activity and prehistorically was a hunter and gather society. This has helped to shape Hayden Lake into what it is today. Hayden Lake residents are heavily into big game hunting, growing our own food, canning, and big on out doors activities. The boundaries of Hayden Lake are Hayden lake shore line, government way, north Lakeview rd., and Honey Suckle Dr. Highway 95 runs north and south through the city of Hayden and can easily be reached from just about any road in Hayden Lake. There is a railroad in nearby Rathdrum however it does not run through or border Hayden Lake. Housing in Hayden Lake is a mix of new development track homes that are close......

...started out horrible. The alarm clock never went off. My husband came home from working 3rd shift to find me still asleep. He called my name. “Tonja”? Are you going to work today? I jump up with a start. Oh, no, I am going to be late for work. I go to Alexis room and wake her up. Of course she is not ready to get up. This is our daily struggle. I lay her clothes out for school. I go into my room and begin pulling my clothes out for the day. I gave her time to get dressed before we start on her hair. I call out to her and she comes in my room. Instead of the cute Mary Jane shoes I laid out for her to wear with her dress, she has on tennis shoes. I ask her to go change her shoes. She immediately starts her pouting. This is typical 4 year old tantrum. This takes up another 30 minutes of my time. I try to reason with her. This doesn’t help. I tell her that I will let her wear her favorite tennis shoes tomorrow. When did she become so stubborn? I have reached my last straw. I tell her this is her last chance to change her shoes. I finally have to pop her hands and put the shoes on. We finally leave the house, over an hour late. As my husband drives toward my job, I’m thinking about the work ahead. Alexis is chattering away like she always do on our morning ride. When we reach my job, I jump out. I’m running toward the building when I hear the car horn honk. My husband is motioning for me to come back to the car. I’m very frustrated. Don’t he......

Power in Montana

...that is how the Hayden name established such a greatness and power in the whole town. Watson portrays Julian as the ideal tough Wild West cowboy. He is not only overbearing but also rude in the way he treats the Indians of the town. He does not show any respect towards Indian customs and beliefs. He sees women in general as weak and on the other hand sees himself as superior to them and especially to the Native Americans. Frank also sees himself superior and takes advantage of the Indian women in the town. He uses his high position as cover up for his crimes. Watson wrote this novel to give the readers a view of power and how easily it can misused. It shows the reality of life and how the powerful can rule over the weak and powerless.  "...but our name was no joke. Mercer County came to aristocracy. I never consciously traded on the Hayden name, yet I knew it gave me a measure of respect that I didn't have to earn." (Watson p. 126) Throughout the story of Montana 1948 by Larry Watson the Hayden name is a symbol of power and control. David states the reasons that his family has control in the town. “Because my grandfather was wealthy and powerful, because my father enforced the law, because my uncle treated the sick and injured, and because all their wives were beautiful. People had an opinion about the Hayden’s." (Watson p. 126). In this novel there are many different areas of control coming from various characters. Julian Hayden the father of Wes and Frank Hayden has an......

Fran Hayden Jones Case Study

...Fran Hayden Jones Case Study What are the main issues in the case? Dairy Engineering showed a serious lack of communication among employee’s, from Fran’s experiences working for the company we have been able to gather that employees feel mistreated by managers, while managers are unable to communicate effectively. Organizational commitment is a large factor influencing the flaws in this companies ability to have a positive work environment. Employees are easily becoming stressed which is having a direct impact on their effectiveness, and their roles are not specifically outlined for them. Why did the problems/ issues occur? Continuance Commitment: Continuance commitment is the view that the employee is only attached to the company because of money motivation, and if they were to leave it would be costly to that employee; therefore the employee continues to work although they may be dissatisfied. In this particular case Fran is over her head in student debt and simply cannot afford to begin looking for another job. Although she is frustrated with the lack of communication from management and by the way she is treated by her managers she continues to work in her position working towards paying of her student debt, Fran is demonstrating continuance commitment. Task Identity: In this case, it is evident that Fran task identity is very inaccurate, along with the other employees at Dairy Engineering. The first flaw in task identity is that of the recruiting......

Analyzing "Those Winter Sundays" to Robert Hayden

...Robert Hayden in "Those Winter Sunday" focus on the relationship between father and child and all the mixed feelings that come with it: love, admiration, fear, misunderstanding, and even hate. He couldn't understand these feeling until he got older, but it was too late for him to tell his father what he learned and how much he is thankful and grateful for his father's sacrifices, hard work, care, and for all the cold Sunday mornings " Those Winter Sundays" when he had to wake up earlier than the rest to worm the house for them. With cold weather and cold memory the speaker goes back from the present as an adult to his childhood, using a formal diction when he describe the old days with all the details, to indicate the personal attached in the poem and the extent of contact to the speaker and his past. the speaker uses vivid images to portray his father in the poem as a powerful father as he said also " Who had driven out the cold" (11) as if his father forced the cold to leave "hear the cold splintering, breaking (6)" who challenges the harsh "blueblack cold" (2) for his family with "cracked hands" (3). But then with words full of remorse "No one ever thanked him" (5) he gets back to hint that his father does not get the right appreciation for his hard work in the past and not in the present, too. Again, with shy words the speaker describes his childhood and how his father made this life warm and better for him, life full with warmth "when the rooms were worm, he'd call"......

Those Winter Sundays-Hayden

...and son. The extensive use of alliteration, “When the rooms were warm,” or “from labor in the weekday weather made.” These alliterations bring focus to all the hard work the father does during week to only work on Sunday, a day of rest, to make his son feel comfortable despite “no one ever thank[ing] him”. Through the vast usage of sonic and literary techniques evokes the harsh image of a misunderstood father sacrificing himself for his son even though his hard work and sacrifice is not acknowledged. Alitteration and consonance helps to create this rough sounding beat in an ominous tone to relate to the rocky relationship between father and son. Robert Hayden stresses the relationship between father and son by adding religious and mythological allusions. Although the poem is written to reflect the shame felt by Robert Hayden taking for granted the routine duties of his foster father, the poem can relate to any child. It is a common saying “you wont know until you have children,” that can be extracted from the poem. Until you are a parent and see all you do for your children do you begin to appreciate all the sacrifices of your parents....
