This is a research-based assignment, not an opinion piece, therefore, completing the assigned reading first is required.

Carefully consider and reflect upon the topic of loyalty in PR, which is covered in Lutrell & Ward, Chapter 7. Thoroughly answer all elements of the four (4) questions at the end of Chapter 7 in the section titled: Loyalty and Ethical Behavior. While answering these questions, make sure to cite your source material from Chapter 7 and any other course content, using APA in-text citations. This is a research-based assignment, not an opinion piece, therefore, completing the assigned reading first is required.
Does loyalty foster ethical behavior or does it reinforce currently maintained ethical beliefs?
If there was greater incentive to be unethical, do you believe the results would have been different?
Are there actions you believe are always ethically wrong? Why or why not?
Many organizations have had success utilizing honor codes. Can we translate the same principles from academia and nonprofit into corporate America? Why or why not?

Each reply must be at least 100 words.

Week 7 Nonverbal Communication
No unread replies.No replies.
This week we are talking about nonverbal communication. This is one of my most favorite topics. It is fascinating and compelling when we think about how powerful nonverbal communication is for our lives.
Read Chapter 6 Nonverbal Communication in Interpersonal Communication by Kory Floyd.
Answer the following questions in your post. To do so, just select the “reply” button, below. Add your initial reply post to this discussion by Thursday night at 11:59pm. Your post must be at least 400 words. Replies should be 100 words each.
Step 1
Discussion questions and observation prompt for the week
1) Observe a dyad (2 people together) to reflect on their nonverbal behavior for at least 30 minutes. Describe their behavior. What nonverbal channels (ie facial, eye behavior, touch behavior) do you observe? What do you see happening between them? As you see it, what is the relationship between these people? Please be safe and do not do anything illegal. Observe at a distance that is comfortable for all. If it is not possible for you to observe a dyad outside your home, please feel free to do the observation with a film or TV show. This means that you would want to turn the volume down for some of the time. Music can be a powerful nonverbal cue. If you decide to observe a film or tv show, please cite the show. You will want to use a clip that demonstrates some relational aspects of the characters. This observation should be around 300 words.
2) Why do you suppose we tend to believe nonverbal cues, even when they contradict a person’s words? Give an example of a situation that you observed where the words did not “match” the nonverbal communication. What was the situation? What did you do? This observation should be around 100 words.
Step 2. Please respond to 2 of your classmates this week.
By Sunday night at 11:59pm, please reply to as least two of your peer’s posts. Each reply must be at least 100 words. In each reply, please do at least one of the following:
1 Note something you have in common with your peer
2. Share some feedback in response to their thoughts or feelings about their post.
Discussion Board Guidelines
1, Initial posts are due by Thursday at 11:59 Pm Pacific Time
2. Response postings should be completed no later than Sunday at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

Thomas edison inventor of the age of electricity.

1. Summarize the arguments in “Our Culture of Contempt” by Arthur C. Brooks (link to OurCultureOfContempt_ArthurCBrooks.pdf
Actions
). This opinion piece was published in the Sunday Review section (p.9) of The New York Times on Sunday, March 3, 2019.In summarizing Brooks’s arguments, you can paraphrase or directly quote him. Remember to refer to Brooks (the author) instead of “the article” when discussing what Brooks said.
The summary should be about 2 to 3 paragraphs.
2. Below are excerpts from two books that discuss the different perspectives of Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein about education. Write at least two paragraphs stating your position on the Edison/Einstein controversy. (Do you agree with Edison, with Einstein, or both to some extent? Explain your position.) Your response must include (a) a direct quote and (b) paraphrased information from these sources. You also want to use the appropriate in-text citations.
Note: One purpose of this question is to demonstrate that you know how to integrate quotations and information from other sources into your writing, your ability to appropriately state what others say in what your own work. Another purpose is for you to practice arguing a position on an issue. A final purpose is for you to practice using MLA citation style for in-text citations. The citations would be to the book Frank and the book by Tagliaferro, not to Einstein and Edison.
Source of the following information: Frank, Philipp. Einstein: His Life and Times. Knopf, 1963. Web. Google Books. 8 Sept. 2020. (This paragraph is from page 185.)
While Albert Einstein was in Boston [during his first visit to the United States in 1921] . . . , he was given a copy of [Thomas] Edison’s questionnaire to see whether he could answer the questions. As soon as he read the question: “What is the speed of sound?” Einstein said: “I don’t know. I don’t burden my memory with such facts that I can easily find in any textbook.” Nor did he agree with Edison’s opinion on the uselessness of a college education. He remarked: “It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.” For this reason, according to Einstein, there can be no doubt about the value of a general college education even in our time.
Source of the following information: Tagliaferro, Linda. Thomas Edison Inventor of the Age of Electricity. Minneapolis: Lerner Publications Company, 2003. Web. Google Books. 22 Sept. 2020. (This information is from pages 101 and 103.)
For many years Thomas Edison had given prospective workers a questionnaire that was made up of more than one hundred questions. He would base his opinions on whether or not to hire someone by how well they scored. . . . Some of the questions were: “What countries bound France?” “Where is the River Volga?” and “Is Australia greater than Greenland in area?” Critics thought the test wasn’t a good measure of a person’s intelligence.
Edison found that most of the job applicants who took the test failed miserably. Out of 718 college men Edison tested for jobs, only 10 percent got a “fair” or passing grade. Edison said, “Only two per cent of the people think, as I gather from my questionnaire.” He blamed the poor scores on the education system of his day. His opinion was that if children between the ages of twelve and seventeen weren’t taught an interest in learning, they would have a hard time succeeding in the future.
He once told the editor of Scientific American, the respected magazine, that he thought one of the most important qualifications for a good worker was a good memory. He said that just having a good memory didn’t necessarily mean that the person would be the best for the job. But if a man didn’t have a good memory, then he would lack the first qualification for it.
He added, “The only way I know to test a man’s memory is to find out how much he has remembered and how much he has forgotten.” It was not important if a man knew the capital of Nevada, but if a prospective employee had once learned what it was and then forgot it, the inventor said, then he would worry about giving such a man a job.

How often (if at all) have you “fact-checked” media reports about climate issues?

Part 1 respond to the following post in 1-1.5 paragraphs :
What media sources do you trust in reporting climate issues? Are media sources “objective” in reporting climate issues? Do media sources report dissenting views about climate changes? How often (if at all) have you “fact-checked” media reports about climate issues?
Part 2 respond to the following post(Therefore, terse responses such as “I agree”, “I agree with…” or “That’s a great point” would not count as meaningful discussion or response.):
I would trust media sources such as articles/ papers written by scientists studying climate issues. I don’t think that media sources are “objective” because most media sources reporting climate issues, express the harms of such climate issues and try to convince the viewers/ readers that these climate issues need to be fixed. I think that most media sources report views that align with most of the population’s views. I have never “fact-checked” media reports about climate change.
