Psychic Mediums
Psychic mediums are humans with what is perceived as paranormal power, giving them the supposed ability to view a portion of your future, past or present life. They rely on reading the person in front of them and the energy that is not viewable to others to give their visitors what they believe they have come for. Mediums use clairaudience to mentally hear (faculty of perceiving by sound), clairvoyance to see (faculty of perceiving things), claircognizance to know (psychic knowledge) and clairsentience to feel (psychic feelings only the medium feels) messages from spirits. Being discussed in this paper are many famous psychic mediums like Theresa Caputo, James Van Praagh and Craig Hamilton-Parker. Some may argue that physic mediums are frauds, while some may argue that their powers are entirely real. In my opinion, human ignorance can overpower reality.

As stated prior, many believe that physic mediums are deceptive, as they could easily give an inquirer a very brief message about their future or loved one that may apply to many. However, those who visit a medium and are given these general messages that apply may from then on have an unrelenting faith in their ability. Although there may be no scientific way to prove that their claim is accurate or not, if their declarations do not fall drastically short of the truth, the individual receiving their message would not feel the need to disprove them. How did they find these things out? Who told them? And why are they telling you? Therefore, people that make general enough claims cannot be proven right nor can they be proven wrong.

There are many reasons why people go visit mediums, the most prominent being to hear from their loved ones. They would like to hear how they are doing, how it is wherever they are, and if they have anything left to say. Another reason people go is to inquire as to what…...

Choosing a Communication Medium

...Choosing a Communication Medium Introduction: Many companies are using computer mediated communication for training and updating their employees. They must choose the most effective and efficient manner of communication. Effective and efficient may be defined as achieving the communication goal while considering budget and time restraints. Consider the following scenario: Your company has 21 offices around the world. None of the members will ever meet face-to-face because of geographical dispersion and scheduling conflicts. They have formed a team of one representative from each office to determine the method of marketing and new product training and to develop the training content. Due to the cost of travel and the large number of individuals that need to be trained, the training will never take place face-to-face. This training consists of: • Information about a new software application that will make your company more competitive. This information is available from the vendor and your IT department. • Information about the company’s most recent products. This information will come from the marketing department at headquarters. • Information about the competition’s products.

Newspaper as a Medium

...content of the newspaper. It’s just the event of holding and reading the newspaper every morning that matters to them. In this way, it is an environment in itself. It takes the reader to a world of information and stories. It can also be seen as an extension of the people as it is something they long for every day they wake up; without a newspaper, the day seems empty. This is what McLuhan means by “the medium is the message”. The content in the newspaper has a certain meaning but just the act of reading a newspaper itself has a different message. Newspapers consist of a wide variety of articles and advertisements and entertainment columns and so on. All these have their own stories to tell, different every day. A newspaper subscriber never knows what’s about to come in the next paper, and mostly he will not be interested in all that, yet he subscribes to the paper and reads it every morning. This is what shows that just reading the newspaper is in itself an important event for him. According to McLuhan’s classification of hot and cool medium, a newspaper is a hot medium. It provides readers with high definition information and does not require the participation of the reader in interpreting the message. Some papers include opinions columns which are open to interpretation/discussion which is “cool” but generally, it absorbs the concentration of the reader without making him/her think much about the event. The visual sense is the most influenced sense while reading the......

The Medium Is the Massage

...Miles 4/24/13 The Medium is the Massage In our world of social media and technology the individual is overly involved in others affairs, this allows for the person to form an altered identity to portray to their audience, and breaks down the barriers of privacy. This lack of privacy has created a movement in our daily lives, a movement in which technology and social media has molded our environment to the point where it has ultimately become our environment. We have unknowingly created a global village in which the individual is put on display and where we as a human race have become overly connected, and overly critical. It is shaping the way in which we perceive ourselves, and the rest of the world. “Too many people know too much about each other. Our new environment compels commitment and participation. We have become irrevocably involved with, and responsible for, each other” (McLuhan 24). Every day, during lunch I cant help but glance up from my plate of food and notice the mass amounts of people checking their phones. It has been shown that the average person checks their phone every six and a half minutes, and can check their phone up to 150 times a day! (Spencer 2013). The cell phone has developed so rapidly over the past ten years that we are now able to look and talk to a significant other face to face through a screen.

Painting and Its Mediums

...Artist and its medium Painting Artists these days have now several painting media to choose from but such is not the case in ancient times. Ancient time painters usually use media that are usually available to them such as wood, pottery and walls. This is the reason why most of the artefacts that are found today are from wall paintings such as frescoes and paintings in potteries that are used in burials and wines. Wood paintings such as panel painting are susceptible to weather conditions which is why there are only quite few of these artefacts are found. Some of these panel paintings are just bits and pieces of the original masterpiece. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) An Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. The Mona Lisa  is a half-length portrait of a woman by the Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied...

Choosing a Communication Medium

...GE347 Writing Assignment – Week 1 Choosing a Communication Medium There are multiple communication mediums that allow the cooperation between individuals who are not physically in the same office or classroom. Choosing the correct medium depends on the needs of the group/company but it also depends, greatly, in its budget. To achieve our goal we would need a product that would allow us to easily share documents with the rest of the group as well as something that allows interaction between the members of the team so that all can share their opinions and provide feedback in all the different topics that will be discussed. Our first option would be the use of phone conferences, using this medium will allow easy interaction between members of the team since they’re all already familiar and comfortable with the use a phone. Documents could be shared via email, which is also something familiar to the members of the group. An alternate option would be the use of web conferencing. Most people work better and feel more comfortable talking to some one if they can actually see their faces. Using this method will also require the use of email to share documents. The great disadvantage with this option is the high amount of bandwidth an application like these uses and the limited bandwidth available for each team member. This could potentially cause many technical difficulties, increase frustration, decrease productivity and therefore hurt our time line. A third solution......

Small and Medium Sized Enterprises

...Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SME’s) are the driving force for the promotion of a Caribbean. Due to its significance, all of the Caribbean countries either developed or developing are concentrating on the development of SME’s. It is an important fact that encouraging entrepreneurship through (SME’s) is a key to improve competitiveness, boost trade volume, fostering economic activities and creation of job opportunities. Small enterprises are considered as main driver for innovation, poverty reduction, employment generation and social integration. Due to innovation in SME sector, the production capacity may amplify which has significant impact for the promotion of economic and social development in the Caribbean. In the Caribbean, although there has been a long history of entrepreneurship spirit, the SME development was slow and limited to the few sectors that were available. It was only in the early eighties where some diversification took place with the start of the tourism development. Since then, Tourism has become the main economic activity of many countries and destinations in the region. Two decades later, all related SME developments in the hospitality, the light manufacturing, agro-processing and the service sectors seems to be insufficient to give us a competitive edge in keeping up with the world’s economic and social developments. One thing everybody agrees on is that, regardless the size or the nature of any economy, no effective Globalization is possible......

Reflection on a Medium of Writing

...Tram Nguyen BUS300GW Assignment #2 – Reflection on a medium of writing The medium I use most of the time in my everyday life is email. I use it for both professional and personal purposes. In general, I think emails are very convenient and useful because you can send and receive it instantly with just internet connection. For professional use, you can create a formal letter in the form of email and have it delivered extremely fast compared to traditional memos or letters. Without any hassle, communication is at ease. Businesses save a lot of time and money, exploit marketing tools, and make working remotely possible. Emails make communication extremely effective at the lowest cost possible. Many large documents that used to cost a lot when sent via regular postage rates are now sent through emails at low cost or free email services. Companies also use emails as a tool of marketing to reach out to their customers, letting them know what is new in the industry with great deals and discounts. Employees use emails to communicate within an organization, no matter where they are in the world. This make working remotely possible. With only a computer, a laptop, or now a cellphone, you can get instant access to your email. Emails are electronic and do not use paper, so you can be sustainable and environment-friendly. One disadvantage of emails is that they can carry viruses that harm your computer and get access to your personal information. Sometimes you also receive unwanted......

Paranormal Activity

...Derek Henning Psychology guest speaker Paranormal activity with Dane P. Dario Paranormal activity is a interesting topic that people have different opinions on. I was recently presented with some information on paranormal activities from Dane P. Dario a senior at Michigan State University. Dane has done a lot of research and has performed a lot of investigations on paranormal activities in Lansing Michigan. Dane seemed very educated in paranormal activities and is writing a book on his research. He also has created a website titled MSUparanormal@gmail.com. He claims that a couple of halls at MSU are to have some spirits as residents. Dane has investigated this theory and has personally never had any thing show up. A lot of people believe in spirits and a lot of people don’t. Dane was really honest about it and has never had a personal experience with a spirit but knows many people that have. Personal theories and beliefs on this topic vary from person to person. It was interesting to hear all the suspicion the class had at the end of his presentation. A lot of students shared personal information of weird things that has happened in the past. It is a very interesting topic and creates a spooky atmosphere when discussed. I have had some weird things happen with the Ouija board on many occasions. I am undecided......

Choosing Communication Medium

...Choosing a communication Medium There are two types of communication mediums needed for any successful business; Physical Media and Mechanical Media. Physical media channels where the person who is talking can be seen and heard by the audience. The whole point here is to be able to not only hear the messages, but also to see the body language and feel like they are in the room. This does not need to be two way channels. In certain situations the receiver expect physical communication. This is the case especially when dealing with high concern messages. If a message is perceived as important they expect to hear it live from their manager. On the other hand, mechanical media is more of the daily form of communication. With mechanical media written or electronic channels are the primary sources. These channels can be used as archives for messages or for giving the big picture and a deeper knowledge. But they can also be very fast. Typically though, because it is written, it is always interpret by the reader based on his or her mental condition. In other words, it is not best to put humor or irony in these communication mediums because it can be percieved the wrong way. Since the company is spread through several continents around the world a great new medium is Global 365. Microsoft Office 365 operates as a cloud-based replacement for Microsoft's desktop tools, packaging Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Microsoft Lync into a cloud service.

The Medium of Comics and Their Message

...Art introduces three concepts in understanding the medium and construct of comics. These three concepts are the icon, closure, and panel-to-panel transitions. These concepts, introduced by McCloud are illustrated in the Japanese anime Yotsuba, created by Kiyohiko Azuma. Yotsuba follows the precocious adventures of a seriously strange kid named Yotsuba, who moves to the city with her father and manages to get herself into familiarly hilarious situations. The frames I chose deals with Yotsuba being introduced to a playground swing by a fellow student. Anime presents, through a progression of panels, how this comic illustrates the communication of information, ideas and experiences through various mediums (words, symbols, illustrations, etc). Upon analyzing this comic strip, it illustrates ways in which the medium’s message will change due to styling, point of view, framing, and closure. The artist’s use of medium reinforced the idea that the message of any piece of art, specifically comics, is not communicated solely through words, but through illustrations. One element of Azuma’s comics that illustrate how the mediums message is communicated through illustrations is the use of the Icon. Azuma’s drawing style is simple and therefore moves itself from any possible complexity within the characters, because a style that possesses realistic images can become more objective and can remove the image from the viewer. Within the medium of comics viewer identification is an important......
