This week forum is about whether I believe philosophy is valuable. After reading Bertrand Russell’s paper, I would have to say I do believe philosophy is valuable. Just like any other subject we take in college, they all have some sort of value to each of us. Philosophy opens your mind up and lets you see life in different ways, and I think that is such a beautiful thing. Philosophy makes you see life differently, instead of seeing it just through your own eyes. At least to me, philosophy is extremely valuable. Before taking this class, I took philosophies of life at Oklahoma State University (which did not transfer over and that is why I am in this class right now), and it opened up my eyes substantially. In the reading Bertrand Russell states, “Philosophy, like all other studies, aims primarily at knowledge”. With that said, knowledge is valuable, therefore, philosophy is valuable. The part that stood out to me the most and proved to me that philosophy is valuable was when Bertrand Russell stated, “[…] the value of philosophy; Philosophy is to be studied, not for the sake of any definite answers to its questions, since no definite answers can, as a rule, be known to be true, but rather for the sake of the questions themselves; because these questions enlarge our conception of what is possible, enrich our intellectual imagination and diminish the dogmatic assurance which closes the mind against speculation; but above all because, through the greatness of the universe…
the participating parties must agree to participate in “good faith” and work toward a solution or resolution (National Arbitration Forum, 2014). The parties in the mediation are do not have to come to a resolution. Mediations are not "decided" in favor of one party or another; rather, the mediator simply facilitates the negotiation process” (National Arbitration Forum, 2014, para.1). In my personal opinion, I believe mediation works well for parties where compromise seems like a viable solution.…
The Roman Forum
The Roman Forum, situated in the Palestinian city, was mostly known to be
a public place. (DeWitt 433) The common meeting place was used by students
who would come and get answers for either their topographic, religious or history
studies. (DeWitt 433) Furthermore, the Roman Forum was acknowledged by
tourists and the citizens of the villages surrounding the forum. (DeWitt 433) Also,
the public place was used by many for exchanges, which was one of the many
reasons why it was…
At the end of Term 1, a group of 4 students, from year 10, were invited to attend a youth forum at Know Grammar High School held by an organisation, KYDS. The group of students were accompanied by Ms Reynolds, our year adviser and our school chaplain Rob Waugh. This was the 3rd annual Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Youth Forum, and it has been helping kids our age who face many hardships on their own, to always find the positives in a bad situation. In this forum we outlined many areas of leading…

There is a major difference between talking to someone in person than talking to someone through email or threaded conversations on the internet forum. We are all aware that when we are speaking face to face to someone we are able to visualize body language and extract more information. Unfortunately, it is not the same when writing these same conversations through email or online discussions.…

I am not surprised at all. Criminals go to no end to get what they want. He should have done some jail time. I knew a manager who scammed a Great Steak restaurant the same way. Shame to say I am sure that he never got caught…
“Aggregates potential buyers into groups that have common needs and will respond similarly to a marketing action” (Kerin et al, p. 174). Market segmentation breaks down the market into smaller groups to be more effective in marketing their product differently to each of them. Breaking down the market into smaller groups allows the company to see clearly what consumers are looking for in that certain market with the ultimate goal of increasing profit and…
