Music And Teens

Music And Teens

Many people today blame any bad action done by a teen on one of two things. It is either parents, or music. That is what this paper will talk about. Is music really the problem Or is that just an excuse. Music does play a huge role in their everyday lives, but what is to blame here Many people blame music for the destruction and desensitizing of our youths, but it really comes down to the parenting. (R&R Does it influence teens Behavior, 2)
Here are some Facts about Music and the Music Media
– The typical American child watches 28 hours of TV a week and by the age of 18 will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence. (Childrens Defense, 1)
– Teenagers spend between 4-5 hours a day listening to music and watching music videos, and they name listening to music as their preferred non-school activity. (Childrens Defense, 1)
– Music Videos average 1 or more violent scenes a minute. That is more than cinema and TV. (Childrens Defense, 1)

Global Trends 2015: Life After Pax Americana

Global Trends 2015 paints a picture, which I believe to be congruent with Charles Kupchan?s article ?Life After Pax Americana. Population increases are predicted to increase by over 1 billion, yet globalization ? the use of technology to make the globe increasingly smaller ? continues to integrate and connect the globe. After assessing the drivers and trends discussed throughout the dialogue, I feel over the course of the next decade a global landscape will emerge in which, ?power and influence are more equally distributed across the globe? (Kupchan).
Global demographic trends remain a factor. ?The world population will increase by more than a billion by 2015, with 95 percent of that growth occurring in the developing world.? Yet in the developing-world urbanization will continue to boom, with approximatly 20-30 million of the world?s poorest people migrating to urban areas each year. These global trends will have lasting implications that will vary by state and region. Economically poorer states, or those with weak governance and infastructure, will encounter additional strains on their resources, infrastructures, and leadership. Many will attept to cope with the effects of globalization, and some will fail. At the same

Albert King, Where Y?at Film: There?ll Always Be Stars In the Sky

In today?s world, many people speak from their own experiences, coming from different backgrounds and caught between conflicting cultures. Countries seen as world powers, strong, confident and proud of their culture, now feel insecure- while other smallere countries are becoming more confident about their roots, identity and culture. St. louis went through tough times of cultural and political conflicts, but now those cultures have come together especially in music. Black music was at the fore-front of the St-Louis music scene, mainly blues and jazz. It was so influential in the communities, that it caught the interest of young white male, Billy peek and and Albert King. They grew found of

Motivation

Motivation

The process theories focus on how behavior is energized and directed and how it is related to performance and satisfaction. The process theory has three basic theories (1) expectancy theory, (2) reinforcement theory, and (3) equity theory. Expectancy theory focuses on how workers decide which specific behaviors to perform and how much effort to exert. In other words, expectancy theory is concerned with how workers make choices among alternative behaviors and levels of effort. With its emphasis on choices, expectancy theory focuses on workers perceptions and thoughts or cognitive processes. Sometimes workers are not motivated to perform at a high level because they do not perceive that high performance will lead to extra benefits (such as pay raises, time off, and promotions). When workers think that good performance goes unrecognized, their motivation to perform at a high level tends to be low. When workers do not believe that performance is instrumental to obtaining rewards, management can take steps to rectify the situation and ensure that performance leads to rewards for as many workers as possible. This is the reinforcement comes into play. We as leaders must constantly reinforce and motivated high performance with employees. Equity theory is based on the
