- a. Connection to Lecture. I haven’t given recent feedback as I’ve been in business school for over a year receiving dubious feedback from others, nevertheless, there were many times when some of the biases discussed in Lecture 7 were on display in myself and my colleagues.

For example, I would often receive feedback from superiors that focused on my shortcomings relative to a trait that the person giving feedback found important, often because he or she exhibited relative strength in this area....   [tags: Donald Trump, Ivana Trump, Elite, Abilene paradox]

- The Brown Sisters Upon hearing the narrative assignment, I found myself stunned that I would actually have to attend a lecture outside of my classes. When scanning the list of possible events, the Brown Sisters lecture stood out in my mind. I had just completed an essay solely devoted to the decision and it’s impact on society so I thought it would be interesting to hear a first hand account of the tumultuous times these brave women faced. The lecture turned out to be more interesting than I originally imagined though I left with a slight sense of dissatisfaction....   [tags: Brown versus Board of Education]

Attending a Lecture on Brown vs. Board of Education by Julian Bond

- Broken Promise of Brown I attended a lecture entitled the Broken Promise of Brown which was given by Julian Bond. This took place at Smith Memorial Hall on April 2 at 7:30 p.m. As I entered the building and made my way to the main entrance of the auditorium, I noticed that this CAS/MillerComm lecture was more formal than the usual CAS/MillerComm lectures. CAS/MillerComm was the sponsor of this event and also sponsors an entire lecture series free to the public.

The Sad Nature of the Conflict between Israel and Palestine

- ... Learning about the carelessness that the Israelis have towards the Palestinians really shocked me. It’s horrifying how soldiers casually shoot everywhere, not really caring who or what they shoot at. After learning about the Old Testament, though, this makes sense to me. Since the people of Israel are Jewish, they don’t believe that the Messiah has come yet and must still live by the laws of the Old Testament, where God demanded they eliminate many people groups through “holy war.” Through this understanding, it makes sense that the Israelis don’t think twice about shooting even at Palestinian children....   [tags: Palestinian lecture reflection]
