The term motivation refers to an internal state that activates and gives direction to our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Even though there have been numerous definitions that have been given to the term motivation over the years, a common perspective of term is that all motives are triggered by some kind of incentive. In psychology, emotion refers to the experience of feelings. Like motives, emotions also trigger and have an effect on behavior, but it is hard to guess the type of behavior that a specific emotion will stimulate. Motivation and emotions are unmistakably related impressions for three reasons - because both motives and the stimulation of emotion trigger behavior, motives are often associated with emotions, and emotions usually have motivational qualities of their own.
Introduction In clinical practice, the help for oncology patients with mucositis is in demand. Therefore, it is interesting to further study about this. As a student, the writer is encouraged to critique published studies on relevant clinical topics. Thus, it will improve the writer’s ability to determine how the accumulated empirical evidence can be used in practice (Burns and Grove, 2007). Research “Chemotherapy: the effect of oral cryotherapy on the development of mucositis” (Karagozoglu and Ulusoy, 2005) was chosen for this assignment.

Advertisement Comparison and Contrast In the magazine “Mix Mag” I’ve chosen two completely different ads comparing and contrasting the rhetorical strategies employed within them referring to ethos which is an appeal to ethics, and it is a means of convincing someone of the character or credibility of the persuader. Secondly pathos, which is an appeal to emotion, and is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response. Lastly logos, which is an appeal to logic, and is a way of persuading an audience by reason. One of the two ads that I have chosen to compare and contrast from within “Mix mag magazine” is campaigning the well-known “Diesel” brand. This ad primarily focuses on pathos only.

It’s use has also led to catastrophic events such as the Jonas mass suicide in South Africa * 2 main strategies are 1) persuasion 2) use of incentives or sanctions * Both can lead to behaviour change but it is important that they also change the underlying attitude if the change is to be enduring * Petty & Cacioppo’s 1986 Elaboration Likelyhood Model of Persuasion- central or peripheral route to processing and the factors which impact on the route taken and how this route can be more or less influential * Use of government sanctions:
Media Violence Lisa Larkin HUM/111 March 10, 2012 Joline Huren The topic I have chosen is media violence. Media violence, as expressed in the two articles provided, tell me this is an issue.

Both articles have explained the topic of media violence and provide support for their arguments by people who would be considered informed and intelligent.
