    4. Luke 7:24-27 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
    5. 24 When John’s messengers had gone, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to look at? A reed shaken by the wind?       25What then did you go out to see? Someone dressed in soft robes? Look, those who put on fine clothing and live in luxury are in royal palaces. 26What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
    6. 27This is the one about whom it is written, ‘See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’
    7. Luke 7:24-27 King James Version (KJV)
    8. 24And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
    9. 25But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and live delicately, are in kings’ courts.
    10. 26But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.

  • What does friendship mean for Americans today


    Writing and Inquiry

    English 111

    Guiding Inquiry—What does friendship mean for Americans today and how is this definition of friendship reflected in the central relationship between Bryson and Katz in A Walk in the Woods?

    “Friendship theory: some philosophical and sociological themes” by Michele E. Doyle and Mark K. Smith

    “America: Land of Loners?” by Daniel Akst

    “Emeritus Friends” by Richard Brookhiser

    “Just Friends” by John J. Conley, S. J.

    “Freedom and Friendship” by James Poulos

    “Introduction,” “Chapter 1,” and/or “Chapter 2” of Friendship : Development, Ecology, and Evolution of a Relationship by Daniel J. Hruschka

    Inquiry Project 2—Multi-Source Essay

    Task: Write a multi-source essay where you address the guiding inquiry prompt below. You will use at least three articles from the list below and A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson to support your definition of friendship.

    Audience: Your instructor and fellow students.

    Format: Your essay should be four to five pages long following MLA style (double spaced, size 12 font, 1 inch margins etc.). Essays that are less than four pages long will be considered incomplete.

    Extra Credit: In an interview on NPR, Here & Now’s Robin Young suggested that the movie version of A Walk in the Woods starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte is akin to the buddy film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You may go see the movie and incorporate the movie version into your essay as an additional source (NOT AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE ABOVE SOURCES) for five points of extra credit on your essay. Note that your discussion of the movie must focus on the friendship portrayed in the movie versus what is portrayed in the book and must have substantive discussion of the movie in relationship to the book. One sentence or two sentence treatment of the movie is not sufficient to earn five points of credit. Make sure that you are using the source material to support your point. Consider where this discussion of the movie will best help you to illustrate your definition of friendship and the friendship that is portrayed in the book.

  • Social value orientations and attitudes towards public transport proposals


    Correlation between social value orientations and attitudes towards public transport proposals


    In this study, we explored to what extent social value orientations (SVOs) successfully predict the attitude of concerned community members regarding two different public construction proposals. The first proposal put forth the construction of a toll road near a suburb connecting it to the city, which makes it easier and quicker for people to get to work. It improves the infrastructure and only adds little to air pollution in the area – but 56 percent of the people who live in the community will not be able to afford to use it. The second proposal involved the building of a train line connecting outer suburbs. It does not provide transport to destinations most people want to reach regularly – but 31 percent of people living around the proposed rail line will save travelling costs and time. Building the train line is funded by taxpayers and will delay upgrades to roads in the nearby suburbs.

  • COM 316: How do same-sex friendships compare with cross-sex friendships?


    COM 316 Mini-Research Project 100 points

    GOAL: To experience the process of data collection, data analysis, and reporting of research results.


    You will be administering a survey that attempts to answer the following research questions:

    1. How do same-sex friendships compare with cross-sex friendships?

    2. Why do men and women create cross-sex friendships?

    3. What challenges do cross-sex friends face in their friendship?

    4. Do your participants prefer their same-sex friendships or their cross-sex friendships?

    The survey to be administered is found under Course Documents in Blackboard.

    It is designed to be administered in a face-to-face setting with you recording the participants’ answers. In face-to-face interviews, you may ask probing questions or clarifying questions, if needed.

    You may add or modify survey questions if you would like.

    You should make 10 copies of the survey per team member. You might want to add space under each question for the recording of their responses. You may add questions to the survey if you would like.


    Your research team is responsible for administering the survey to 10 people per team member. The team will then analyze the data and write one research report. The team members’ names must appear on this report.


    The sample for this study should have the following characteristics:

    1. Ages between 20-30 years old.

    2. The sample should have engaged in both same-sex friendship and cross-sex friendship in their post-high school years.

    3. Type of Relationship—the relationships under study should NOT be romantic in nature.

    4. Men and Women. 50% of your sample should be men; 50% women. In your analysis you may compare the responses of men vs. women.

    5. Participants may be either heterosexual or homosexual.

    The participant’s number is one you assign to them in order to keep track of the surveys. The respondent’s must remain anonymous so this numbering allows you to ensure anonymity.

    Make sure you share with your participants the instructions as printed on the survey. Make sure you answer their questions prior to administering the survey. The survey should take only 15-20 minutes of their time (unless they are quite verbal!). Let them know their time commitment when asking if they will participate.


    Your team will need to calculate averages for the participant’s ages and closeness of their friendships. Frequencies should be calculated for other survey questions, such as preference for type of friendship, etc. Qualitative analysis should be conducted on the open-ended questions, such as the benefits of cross-sex friendship and the challenges of this friendship. For qualitative analysis, you should look for major themes in their responses.

    In order to assess the influence of gender on level of satisfaction with the long distance relationship, divide your participants into a female group and a male group. Calculate the average of each group’s scores on the level of satisfaction question. Compare their averages.

    You need to provide at least 4 quotes from your participants in your research findings section to illustrate your findings (review presenting qualitative findings in your text).


    Your report should follow the APA guidelines (formatting throughout as learned for Activity 1). You do not have to conduct a literature review; just present an overview of the problem, citing research when appropriate. Include headings and sub-headings in your paper. Remember, when you cite specific research reports, you must include a Reference Page at the end of the report. The report will be lengthy—typically between 15-20 pages. Each partner in the research team is expected to contribute to the report equally. All partners’ names should appear on the submitted report.

    I am doing this research paper with a partner. She is writing the first 7 1/2 pages and I’m writing the last 7 1/2 pages. Below is our outline we came up with. So start this research paper with #7 the 4 quotes and then go from there.
