The lives of ordinary Australians have changed greatly since 1945. In this present day of 2007 we see many different cultures coming together to call Australia home. Before this though, there were many issues regarding a multicultural society in Australia; and who should and shouldn't enter into this country. During this presentation today, I will be presenting you with the changes that Australia has had to face in a bid to make our society multicultural and appealing to all different backgrounds. The lives of ordinary Australians has changed as it means that they can now interact with those from different walks of life, this is not to say however that all cultures have embraced the Australian way of life. Firstly, multiculturalism refers to several different cultures which can be brought together to live peacefully and equally as one. This was a major issue in Australia during the 1945's due to the Governments strong point of view for keeping Australia in 'white hands' only. Attempts were made before 1945 to make Australia a multicultural country but failed as racism occurred within the social and working environments. Chinese gold diggers who came into Australia to work on the mining fields were treated unfairly because there was a fear of them due to tension of competition. The Chinese were described by many fellow Australians to be 'untiring workers'. Many Australian gold diggers wanted the Chinese out of the gold fields, and to be deported back to their original counties; and were astonished to learn that 3.3% of Australia's population was made up of the Chinese workers. This was the first time that an Asian country had contributed towards the Australian population. This was the first step in Australian history to make Australia a multicultural society, but failed miserably.

Without knowing it, I am sure that everyone could name at least one ballet. For example, "Swan Lake" or the "Nutcracker". Ballet is a very expressive type of dance in which one can truly express his or her feelings, while telling a story. In this speech, I am going to tell you about the history of ballet, as well as some well known ballets and dancers. Ballet has been around since the 1400s. The first dance performance was in 1489. In 1581, the first ballet for which a complete score survived was called "Le Ballet Comique de la Reine (The Queen's Ballet Comedy), which took place at the courts of Catherine de' Medici. Ballet started to flourish in the 1600s in the courts of Louis XIV (14th), also known as the Sun King. Court ballets really flourished in 1643-1715. In Italy, ballet was first performed in the early 1600s, and in 1661, the first ballet school opened in France, started by Louis XIV. In this school, the only people that were allowed to dance were the men. Women started dancing in 1681. Ballets are very expressive ways to tell a story. The dancing is very graceful and very impressive to watch. There are five well known ballets: 1) "Swan Lake"-The first production was in Moscow on May 4, 1877 at the Bolshoi Theater, but unfortunately this was not a success. The revival was a hit and got the appreciation it deserved. It was performed on January 27, 1895 at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg. This was choreographed by Marius Petipa and Ivanov. This was a ballet that was in four acts and it was based on a German fairy tale. 2) "The Nutcracker"- This ballet was based on the book "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King", which was written by ETA...

Life is very difficult for the first generation of immigration in America. There are many reasons responsible to this situation, both from society and from individuals. I think one of the major reasons is our poor English. I have been in United States more than ten years and I have a nice job, working for a biotech company as a senior scientist and the Research Manager. But my English is still very poor, because almost all the scientists in my company are Chinese. The major language we speak at work is Chinese, and we only speak Chinese at home. I was a medical doctor, a professor and the Chairman of Molecular Biology Department of a medical school in China. Therefore, I have little problem in my scientific research work, but I do have many problems because of my poor English. My professional English is only good enough to read reference papers and to give presentations of my work, but not good enough to write manuscripts for publications. In order to be accepted for publication, I have to ask my boss and secretaries who are native English speakers to help with my English, otherwise, the reviewers would comment the manuscript is written in poor English. Furthermore, as the Research Manager, I have to present our research work to investors and to discuss with scientists from other companies, which require me to speak perfect English. Although I always try my best to prepare myself, sometimes I still have difficulties to communicate clearly with them and I have to ask my boss¡¯s help. All of those have affected the efficacy of my professional work. My poor English not only have limited my work, but also affect the quality of my life. Sometimes I was invited to parties. People at the parties were nice, kind and...

After watching the speech that I had given on Kurt Cobain, I realized that my biggest problem is that I don't stand still. I don't really pace, but I sort of rock back and forth slowly from side to side. I'm sure that is distracting to most everyone who watches me speak. I also have a tendency to talk with my hands. I know that you're not supposed to do that, but I don't it as being a huge problem simply because that is how I help express myself (and I'm not even Italian). I feel that I speak at a superior rate and the tone of my voice is near perfect. After watching the tape, it didn't seem as if I was rushing at all, and I spoke very loud and clear. I was able to understand every word that came out of my mouth. The biggest problem that I have when I listen to other people give speeches is the level of volume that they talk with. Half of the time, I can't understand what they are saying at all. This might come down to a confidence problem, or a lack of knowledge on the subject matter. I feel that it was apparent to everyone in the room who listened to me that I knew what I was talking about. Yes, I realize that knowing all about the life and death of Kurt Cobain isn't exactly the same as studying astrophysics, but I still knew what I was doing nonetheless. The material that I provided in my speech was adequate. I was easy to understand, and most anyone would have been able to learn from what I had to say. I gave a general overview of his life without regurgitating an endless number of facts. That is the key right...

Bibliography: Information for the Using Motivated Sequence The Motivated Sequence Design is used in a persuasive speech urging the audience to some form of action. It follows a problem-solution design. Don't let this fool you into thinking you can only use this when there is a problem to be solved. This design can also be used as a persuasive form of selling. Think of all the junk mail you receive, more than likely the advertisers are using the motivated sequence to sell the product. They are trying to establish a need for you to buy or use their product, and showing you how you can benefit from the product and urging action on your part. The first step in the motivated sequence is to establish attention in the introduction. You are trying to get the audience interested in what you will be talking about in the speech. The second step is the need step that is established in the body of the speech. Here you will demonstrate to the audience why your topic or product is important to them. Thus, it's the same as in the Informative Speech of showing why your topic is important to your audience. However, note that this step is the first step in the body of a persuasive speech, unlike the informative speech where it is in the introduction. The third step is satisfaction. Also in the body of the speech, here you will demonstrate to the audience how they will be satisfied with your product or solution. The fourth step in the sequence is visualization. You ask the audience to visualize the success of your solution/product, or the consequences of not taking the action you request of them. The fourth step is in the body of the speech also. The fifth and final step of the sequence is a call to action....

If you walk or run you are susceptible to serious knee injury. A mere twist of the knee to the left or right can result in the tear of the Ant. Cru. Lig. Or ACL. As said in a personal interview with [ dr. karazzi of kerlan and jobe medical clinic] this injury is very common among athletes that participate in football, soccer, and basketball . To inform you today, we will explore how the knee functions, how the ACL is damaged, and how it is repaired. -- In function the knee is quite simple. The knee is fundamentally a hinged joint much like the hinge of a door. It swings back and forth. The muscles of the thigh control its movement. It can also move about slightly in other directions as well. The knee can slightly bend from side to side, it can rotate, and also one bone can move forward or backward relative to the other bone. These movements are very slight and painless. Only when pushed to the extreme is when a problem occurs. The ACL acts as a stiff rubber band that holds bone to bone. The ACL is there to limit these movements and essentially holds the knee together by binding the femur to the tibia as regarded by [ www.kneeguru.com ]. The ACL is positioned inside of the knee behind the knee cap. So with out the ACL the knee will essentially have no lateral or side to side stability allowing the femur and the tibia to slide side to side in relation to each other which may cause serious injury if the bones were to completely separate from each other. Although without an ACL it is possible to run or walk quite normally. -- When damaged there are various degrees of injury that...

Gain a curiosity and awareness about Japan and its unique culture. Knowledge regarding the comparisons and differences of Japanese civilization Introduction: For the duration of my analysis and study of Japan I will give details to four central points of significance throughout my speech. 1. Is Japan an individualist or collective country? 2. Whether Japan has uncertainty accepting or rejecting? 3. Is Japan an M-time or P-time culture and fourth, is Japan an implicit or explicit rule country? Visualize yourself arriving in Tokyo off an airliner with a lone bag of luggage and cell phone asking youself why am I in Tokyo? This was an occurrence I endured when I visited my friend Caitlin during spring break this past spring. She explained to me how much fun I was going to have in Tokyo and how the culture was awkward at times, but astonishing in other aspects. That Tuesday when she was heading off to class she woke me up and said "Enjoy Tokyo, I'll call you when I am finished with class". That Tuesday morning I awakened and went immediately to the refrigerator for something to quench my thirst I grabbed a Sapporo (a type of rice beer famous in Japan), while quenching my dehydration I saw flyers for trance and house parties at a club called Code in a neighborhood called Harajuku. That night I experienced everything Tokyo had to offer and through my experiences in Japan I will decipher four central main points every tourist and local should know. First main point: Japan is a collectivist country: Second main point: Japan has an uncertainty accepting A. An invitation to lunch or dinner is important in Japan.
