Assumption- Assumptions are the facts that support the conclusion, like the premise does, but unlike the conclusion and premises they are not stated in the text: they are implicit. Here is what would be an example of an assumption for this particular Critical Reasoning problem: Owning something or part of something obliges you work harder to make it succeed. Note that this line is not in the text: it cannot be in the text if it is an assumption of the author. But it does give the argument as a whole some sense, and also supports the conclusion. Supporting Information- Like a premise, this is stated and explicit information embedded in the text, but unlike a premise, it does not support the conclusion. At best it supports a premise or provides further detail or information regarding a premise. From the text: According to a report done by an outside consultant, productivity dropped by 35% by the end of that period. This sentence supports the first sentence, the premise that notes that productivity has dropped. Supporting Information does not support the Conclusion or Main Idea, rather, it supports information that is already in the text. The following strategies should help you with all the Critical Reasoning questions. 1. KISS - Remember the old saying, Keep It Simple Stupid i.e. KISS? It also applies to Critical Reasoning.

This was criticised saying that ‘Marketing Science’, as it was perceived to be ignoring the impact of marketing on society, focusing instead on issues related to managerial and firm competitiveness exclusively. That marketing intellectuals should devote attention to issues central in contemporary public policy debates or to study the impact of marketing on society and vice versa (i.e. take a ‘macro marketing’ perspective). Ways scholars tried to link marketing theory and research with wider societal concerns was to broaden the domain of marketing, to include not just business exchanges (i.e selling soap) but to stress that many organisations engaged in marketing. A short step to this was claiming that......

This movement required several courageous leaders and many life changing events occurred in order for America to become the integrated nation that it is today. Due to the events of Martin Lurther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the Montgomery Bus Boycott all were effects of the Civil Right Act of 1964. Martin Lurther King Jr. is one of the most histroical leaders of the 1900's and still till this day his words and actions still influence people. Dr. King is widely regarded as America's pre-eminent advocate of nonviolence and one of the greatest nonviolent leaders in the world history matter of fact. He led noremous movements but one of his most famous was when he led a nonviloent movement in the late 1950's and 60's to achieve legal equality for African Americans in the United States. King used the power of words and acts of nonviolent resistance, for example, protests, grassroots organizing, and civil disobedience to achieve seemingly-impossible goals. Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech, Nobel Peace Prize lecture, and "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" are among the most revered orations and writings in the English Language.

Civil Rights

...Civil Rights According to Weiggarten(Weiggarten)Texas has a long history about the right to ownership of guns. The history dates back and was initiated by the American Revolution attempt to oppose the disarming of citizens. When Texas was commissioned as a state, it had a law written in the constitution about ownership of arms. Before Texas lost during the civil war it had already established a strong constitution which allowed the citizens town fire arms. The act in the 1845 constitution stated “Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of him and the state (Weiggarten).” The law stated, “Every person shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the state, under such regulations as the legislature may prescribe (Weiggarten).” In early 1970s voted out of the State’s government, and the governor was attacked by a group of armed civilians. The legislature was accorded the authority of regulating ownership of arms as a way of fighting criminal activities. The law stated “Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power by law to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime (Weiggarten).”The Republicans came up with laws that more improved increments especially on gun control. The republicans are advocating for full protections which were lost during the civil wars. In his discussion......

Why Captain America: Civil War Is Hitting All the Right Notes

...superheroes with some human emotions, and more about humans with super abilities, forcing you to acknowledge that superheroes are people too, and say, “Now, that, was a movie.” Because at its heart, that’s what Captain America: Civil War is all about. Real people in real situations with some superhuman powers thrown in for good measure. The heart of the conflict is an ideological difference of opinion between the two sides, and in a surprising turn of events, it’s our very own law-abiding, orders-following Captain who’s opposing the decisions of the Government to pass the Sokovia Accords in the aftermath of their epic battle in Sokovia as shown in Age of Ultron. Thus, the Avengers, for the first time in Marvel history, stand divided, but it is heart-warming to see that despite it all, there exists zero animosity; it’s friends against friends, and no Accord can strain that relationship over a single night. But add to that a conspiracy involving Cap’s Achilles Heel, Bucky (played by the dashing Sebastian Stan), and you have Captain and his team rallying to protect him from being wrongfully tried for a crime he didn’t commit, turning them into outlaws, vigilantes, criminals…you name it. Jaw dropping action sequences have always been Marvel’s plus-point, and Civil War does not fail to disappoint in that (or any) category. Love Bucky or hate him, but you can’t not emit a gasp when he punches off a guy driving a motorcycle in full speed , and then hops astride it in one swift......

...* Module/Week 1 Lecture Notes * Topic: Why Management of Information Systems (MIS) Welcome to the introductory course in the Management Information Systems program. Whether you are taking course as a Business Elective or your required BMIS core, you may find, as the text author states, “Introduction to MIS is the most important class in the business school.” I must agree. An understanding of how Information Systems support a business by helping to build competitive advantage is critical to everyone in today’s technology driven, global business environments. In this module/week, you will be learning about four nonroutine critical skills that make MIS professionals some of the most valuable employees a business has. These four skills are: Abstract Reasoning, Systems Thinking, Collaboration, and Ability to Experiment. Don’t panic at this point thinking you don’t have these skills. Over the period of your BMIS program you will learn these skills. It just happens often without you knowing it. MIS professionals are different than other people. We bridge the gap between technologist (who speak “technobabble”), and users (who speak “businobabble”). That gap widens at a rapid rate, so prepare yourselves for a wild ride. Additionally, this module/week introduces the five-component Information Systems Framework. This provides your first step in learning about Abstract Reasoning and Systems Thinking. It puts information into a “model” (Abstract Reasoning) that......
