Comparing the skills

As we know there is a great novel about a game that we called Hunger Game. This novel is making me sad while I am reading it because every one has a bad life and dream that cant get it. Have you ever heard about Katniss and Peeta’s skills? Actually I am reading this novel these days and every actor in this novel has the own skills. I am going to talk about Katniss and Peeta’s skills and I will show the different.

First of all, Katniss is a highly skilled archer, hunter, and trapper, having learned these from her father and Gale, honed to keep her family from starving. She uses her archery to score an 11 (out of a possible 12) during the pre-games judging. She has been well educated on the edible, medicinal, and poisonous plant life of District 12. Additionally, she has a good singing ability, also from her father, although she has been reluctant to sing since his death. Katniss is a skilled tree-climber, which has benefited her in hunting and the Games. She is usually very logical except for times when her emotions get in the way.

Secondly, Peeta's main skills are baking, painting and camouflage. These artistic talents developed from helping out at his parents' bakery by making bread, etc. and decorating the cakes. His larger build and strength also gives him an advantage during hand-to-hand combat and wrestling. In the Games, he usually carries a knife or a sword, although he rarely uses them in battle as he is not particularly violent and dislikes killing unless it is completely necessary. Peeta has a lot of strength from working at the bakery; Katniss says she's seen him lift bags of flour over a hundred pounds. It is also revealed in Catching Fire that Peeta has a talent for painting. Peeta also has a talent for speaking to crowds for he can always pick the right words to say to win them over.…...

Comparing Classes

...Thesis: When choosing classes for college comparing and contrasting the classes is very helpful. Online class vs. Traditional class is a common decision many college students have to make. I. Location -Workplace -Home -School II. Interaction -Friends -Teacher -Discussion III. Accessibility -online -In Classroom Comparing online classes to traditional classes’ people generally pick traditional, because that’s all they have ever known. These days, there are many different ways to access higher education. One can enroll in a traditional program, attending classes and accessing educational resources on campus. Someone can also enroll in an all-online program, in which the majority of your schoolwork and communications are completed via the Internet. Or there's the in-between option: Blended learning environments that combine on-campus and online coursework. Online courses typically allow students to work together, which means that they can complete their coursework at the time and place of their choosing. This is often ideal for working students or single parents who need a flexible schedule. However, students who struggle to be self-motivated may find that they quickly fall behind (Cooper).Of course; the primary reason you're in class is to learn and develop new skills. For some students, this can be very difficult without the direct, face to face input of an instructor. If a person doesn't learn well from books and other written material one may......

Skill Acquisition Study Comparing Elite Sportsmen to Novices

...A study comparing the skill acquisition of novice performers against that of elite performers in basketball For this study, I observed a year 7 group of novice basketball players. Many of them had never played basketball before, and some of them had only started playing very recently. I also observed an NBA game, to compare the skills of the two groups. There is a huge difference in all areas of skill acquisition between the two groups of basketball players. The areas of skill acquisition I am going to look at are skill and ability, information processing, memory and decision making. Performance is affected by how well a player can use these different areas, whilst performing. Firstly I observed the skill levels of both the NBA basketball players and the year seven basketball players. There are seven aspects of skill, so I judged both performances on some of the aspects of skill. The NBA basketball skills were very aesthetically pleasing. For example, when they took a shot, they would put backspin on the ball by flicking their wrist so the ball dropped in the hoop, of the backboard. This looked very good, because the arm and the wrist move together, in a flowing movement. When you compare this to the year 7’s, the technique was not performed in the same way. Most of them did not flick the wrist to generate backspin, and shot more directly at the basket, rather than looping the ball. This made their performance a lot less skilful because the technique looked messy and......

...Communication is the act of sending a message whether it is written or verbal. Communication can be sent by email, telephone, text message, television, and or radio. It is very important that we all master communication skills. Communication helps us not only in our working environment, but also in our personal life as well. There are many ways communication can be delivered. One of the ways is verbal, speaking face to face or via telephone. When speaking with some one verbally you can hear their tone and know whether or not someone is being sincere, upset, or happy. Verbal communication is in my opinion the easier of the two. You can actually hear and see what a person is saying. You can feel the emotion behind the words being used, and it has more of an effect on you. There are some that even when they are speaking verbally their words come across wrong or their tone doesn’t match what they are trying to convey to you. The following is an example that I have composed of a verbal communication. Good Ex: Can you please bring me the yellow binder at noon? Bad Ex: Bring me that thingy around lunch. The first sentence is polite, but in the second sentence you have no idea what the person is talking about and they are not asking they are being demanding. When using communication in written form it is more important to choose your words carefully and to use the appropriate tone. If this is not done correctly one could easily take the message as being offensive. Once......

Comparing/Contrasting

...Your goal is to write an essay showing how two subjects are either similar or different (not both). When comparing subjects, show how they are similar. When contrasting them, show how they are different. In a comparison/contrast paper, be sure to develop a thesis that includes words that signal comparisons, such as “although,” “even though,” “in spite of,” “except for,” “not withstanding,” or “but.” Also, use appropriate transitions to signal comparisons and link paragraphs within the body of your paper, such as “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” “similarly,” “also,” “both,” “even though,” and “in the same way.” In order for two things to be worth comparing, the two things should initially appear to be different. In order for two things to be worth contrasting, the two things should initially appear to be similar. Comparing and contrasting are ways of exploring the similarities and differences between two things. 'Compare and contrast' is often used as a development strategy for essay assignments but it's a helpful strategy for any important decisions you have to make. Generally speaking, comparing is showing the similarities, and contrasting is showing differences between two things that are related in some way. For example, you wouldn't compare/contrast reading a book to driving a car, but you would compare reading a book to reading with an e-reader.

...Critical and Creative Thinking Evelyn Bonilla PHL 458 Due January 13, 2014 Shuwn Hayes Critical and Creative Thinking Thinking critically is something teachers have asked students to do since they start school. It is something that bosses ask their employees to do and what CEOs of companies must do to stay competitive. However, critical thinking is one of the hardest skills to hone and maintain. Also, critical thinking alone does not keep a business running. Critical thinking must be paired with creative thinking to be truly successful. Think it through, if a CEO stops trying to innovate or create new policies or products then they stop evolving and become irrelevant. If you look at critical and creative thinking in the technological age, Blackberry is a prime example. For many years Blackberry had a stronghold on the “smartphone” market. It safe and secure email made it perfect for business people on the go and the full text keyboard, or “QWERTY” as its now called, made sending text messages and replying to emails so simple. However, then the iPhone was released. Blackberry did not want to change to a text screen and by the time they did; in late 2013 it was too late. Smartphones have applications, games, email, and a multitude of other features. However, companies are reluctant to create apps for the new Blackberry smartphone because Blackberry does not have the market share it once did. They may have seen that people did not immediately jump onto......

Comparing Smartphones

...Case: Comparing Smartphones The two attributes that I find most important in a smartphone are the CPU speed and the internal storage. I believe CPU speed is highly important for a smartphone because that is how fast it will function. The CPU speed is basically the brains in electronics and allows programs to run and operate. Having a fast phone will allow you to carry out your tasks in a timely manner and be able to look up things without crashing. The internal storage is important in a smartphone because it will allow a person to have a lot of data on their phone. It will allow a person to have many files, photos, and videos that all can be stored right on their phone. The iPhone 5 ranks the lowest, according to the selected attributes for smartphones. It is the most expensive and in every attribute is the lowest except one attribute which is the weight, so it is the lightest smartphone. It is the most expensive at $649 in comparison to the other smartphones being priced ranging from $449 to $579. That makes the iPhone 5 about $100 more expensive, yet it is basically the lowest ranked with respect to the selected attributes. In some attributes like CPU speed and the megapixels of the camera it is close to the other phones listed. According to the table given with attributes of smartphones I believe that iPhone 5 is not well positioned compared to the competitors. The iPhone 5 is the lowest ranking in every category listed except for the weight of the phone......

...Pascal Debowiak Mrs. Morse Comparing/Contrast Essay 02/03/16 The Environmental benefits of bicycling There are numerous reasons to own a car. Every day people drive a car to get to work, visit friends, buy groceries and complete many other chores. We are, like it or not, dependent on automobiles. However, bicycles are often a useful alternative and are more environmentally friendly. A car is but also costly and often difficult to pay for. To begin with, buying a two-year old car is smarter than purchasing a new one. After a new car depreciates a couple years, it can be purchased for thousands of dollars less. But whether buying new or used, the car’s cost is only part of the expense. Paying for insurance, maintenance, gas, and repairs adds significantly to the expense. Being able to repair a car yourself helps keep costs down, but there still is an expense. Costs of purchase, maintenance and repair aside, automobiles have an adverse effect on the environment that bicycles do not. Even before a car is driven it consumes energy. Automotive production leaves a giant footprint because materials such as steel, rubber, paints, plastics, and glass must be created before a new ride is ready to roll. But that’s not all; air quality suffers because vehicles are America’s biggest air quality compromisers, producing about one-third of all U.S air pollution. The also contribute to global warming. These findings have caused engineers to develop more eco-friendly cars for the future.......

...Comparing Oedipus and Othello For Oedipus and Othello “duty” should have their first priority. Othello’s duty was supposed to be the importance of his marriage, but he listened to Iago, ignored Desdemona, didn’t believe his own conscience, and his own heart. Oedipus’ duty was to defeat the Sphinx(which he does) free Thebes from heavy taxes(which he does) be a great king of Thebes and be a good husband, but instead he offends Creon, his brother-in-law and uncle; insults his friend, Tiresias the blind prophet; kills his father; and destroys Jocasta, his mother and his queen. Fatal flaws demolished the lives of both Oedipus and Othello. Othello was so proud of his honor and bravery that he didn’t recognize his violent temper and Iago’s mind tricks. Oedipus was so proud of his cleverness that he tried so hard to escape his own fate. With all that said, these were honestly just a couple of comparable traits between Oedipus and Othello. When looking for a great leader that would lead your city through anything and everything it is not hard to tell that both Oedipus and Othello could be those leaders. Both had great gifts in leadership. They stood up in what they believed in. Each held exceptional accomplishments and both possessed the ability to be an all-around leader. Othello was a respectable citizen who was usually known for his fighting or war success. He knew how and what the goal was to succeed. Not all leaders knew that. Oedipus was also somewhat the same. He,......
