Unformatted text preview: DQ Week 6 Is it always possible to only use credible sources? Explain your answer. It is possible, and probably in your best interest, I do not think it is always entirely possible. Some sources can be convincing in their information. Wikipedia is a perfect example. Most people think this site is a good resource for looking up many things, but some people do not realize that it can altered by anyone and the content might not always be accurate. It is important to research your sources and to not take what is being said at face value. I would definitely say that it is possible to use only credible sources, but it is not always possible. I am thinking of scientific resources, which change frequently when new information is found or finally understood. A person could write a paper today that says there is no definite cure for cancer, then we could find out next week that there is a cure. Information, viewpoints, and opinions are constantly changing. I think that this makes it impossible for us to find credible sources every single time we conduct research. However, with hard work and dedication, it is possible to find and consistently use credible sources. Think about a scenario where you could just present a small amount of information to an audience and sway their overall understanding. How could you sway others to your side with minimal information? Do you feel others may have tried to do this to you in the past? How do you feel now that you know others have tried to sell you bad information wrapped up in truth/facts? Occasionally, I think that salesmen only give a small portion of information in order to sell their products. About a year ago, my family was invited to a dinner where a salesman was going to attempt to sell state of the art smoke detector systems. The salesman only gave information that was in favor of his smoke alarm systems, such as the number of people that the alarm system has helped to save. He did not give information about other similar smoke alarm systems. He also attempted to appeal to the emotions of the people in the audience by asking the parents how they would feel if they used less - effective smoke alarm systems that did not work properly in a fire. I think that the salesman gave limited information in order to sell more smoke alarm systems. Clearly, the messenger had something to gain by only offering limited information. I think that the most important is not to followed what they writing and the best is to try give our opinion on any answers that we have to make because it will be safe and in on our own words.I think that copy our followed what some people writing our say it will be affected us as person because if we believe what they said then we never will have our thinking on what we writing I think as parents we use this a lot on our children. I know I do when it comes to getting my son to take medicine. "It doesn't taste good" my son will say to me or "is it going to hurt when I get a shot from the Doctor?" And I usually reply "you will not taste good" my son will say to me or "is it going to hurt when I get a shot from the Doctor?...

HUM 111 WEEK 10 ASSIGNMENT 3 STRAYER
Due Week 10 (03/14/2016) and worth 100 points
As a way of experiencing the Humanities beyond your classroom, computer, and textbook, you are asked to do a certain type of “cultural activity” that fits well with our course and then report on your experience. Your instructor will require you to propose an activity and get instructor approval before you do it and report on it (students should look for any instructions in that respect). Every effort should be made to ensure that this is a hands-on experience (not a…show more content…
Note: Submit your cultural activity choice to the instructor for approval before the end of Week 5 (earlier is even better). Look for guidance from the instructor for how or where to make your proposal. You may also seek advice from your instructor (provide your town/state or zip code) for a good activity in your general area.
Visiting a Museum
• It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what there is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.
• If there is a travelling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.
• Every effort should be made ahead of time to identify a museum that has items and works one can easily connect to our HUM 111 class and book. Since HUM 111 covers from ancient times to the 1500s AD, it makes more sense to focus on items from that time frame. In general, museums with artistic cultural artifacts and fine arts work better than history museums.
• Any questions about whether a museum-visit activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for the activity. Any alternative
