1/ Identify and describe the research question you are using to develop your third paper. What is your question and how did you arrive at it? What interests you about it?

My research paper is about how people use iconography to show their different visual perceptions and how and why people would see the same picture differently. The reason why I came up with that question is because a lot of people saw the ieshia evans photo in different ways I would like to show the most of the angles they saw the photo not only how Bachman saw it. Visual perception is a large topic so I would just like to focus on the photo at hand.

A Research Strategy is a bit-by-bit game plan that coordinates your contemplations and endeavors, empowering you to lead research deliberately and on time to create quality outcomes and complete reporting. It allows one to stay focused, reduce frustration, enhance quality, and, most importantly, save time and resources. The most valuable method and idea I get from reading are to be clear and concise on words. Work on the transition of the paragraph. Take help from the writing center and evaluate every section properly.

For my third paper, I would choose the first paper. I feel that it is more connected to me. I can do more research on police brutality and how people of color are treated in society even though we live in a democratic country. I would love to do more research on how people’s voices are suppressed. Can you believe  its 2022 and racism still exist?

For every research paper, there is a specific purpose. Hence, the decision on which research method I should adopt depends on my research objectives and aims. My strategies are simple. I always pick the topic that I have more information, concepts, and ideas about. When choosing my research method, I define my goals, objectives, and research question. Next, I find resources to conduct my research. Then, I write the method in detail and review it.

  • Even though the world contains the powerful devices that have made piracy easier than it used to be, I wonder if the music industry still faces piracy to this day.
  • I’m wondering if the digital music platforms care about the quantity of the music that the application contains or about the high quality of music.

Blog Post #5 Hearing and Listening

 Hearing and Listening are the same things we just gotta use our ears but there is a significant difference between hearing or the things that you choose to hear either you can ignore it or try not to hear it but listening has to do with paying attention you listen to the things that you wanna understand make a decision about listening to it A good listener will pay close attention when you wanna listen to someone say something and hearing how old people are insisted because you have the choice to not listen to something not here things that you don’t want to and Krukowski discusses hearing and listening sound in space are both rhythms with each other But I think whoever is interested to even here or listen they will pay attention it’s just up to them for listening is something that you put more attention to when you try to listen to it carefully than hearing.

  1. Hearing and listening are two confusing words within the English language. These two verbs are linked with the meaning of sound and describe the experience of receiving sound. Even though these two verbs can be applied to the identical things (the things we hear), there’s a difference in their meanings. The most significant difference between hearing and listening is that hearing is receiving, or perceiving, sound through our ears, whereas listening means making significant efforts to perceive sound. The difference between hearing and listening is just like the difference between watching and observing.

    Listening is a skill that requires us as the listener to provide feedback about what we hear from the speaker. However, being attentive to others can strengthen our relationships. And once we listen well to others, we reveal ourselves as being curious and engaged with them. Additionally, our ability to know the meanings of what we hear will make us a more knowledgeable and thoughtful people.

    For example, if we’re listening to someone discuss a difficult day they had at work, we’ll have our full attention focused on them. As they speak, we will begin to gain insight into what their experience was like, and this will help us formulate thoughtful comments and ask relevant questions to gain a deeper understanding of their experience.

    In my native country, relationships with our colleagues may affect our ability to pay attention by listening to them. Because once we know our colleagues well, we frequently assume we will know what they’re saying or will say during a particular situation, and that we plan our response accordingly. All told, in these situations, the conditions needed for genuine listening don’t seem to be present. Further, dialogue and deliberation quickly devolve when individuals believe that what they need to mention isn’t valued.

  2. The author Schafer illustrates that our modern technological society has attained somewhat of a consensus regarding what is desirable and undesirable. According to Krukowski, our concept of noise and signal within the urban environment has changed to a point where industrial sound and birdsong have become one and the same, as well as noisy elements, blocked out by our headphones. With our digital society, we have made it far too easy to shut out any unwanted or uncomfortable noise.

Hearing and Listening

Hearing is the act of perceiving sounds through an organ such as the ears. Hearing is one of the five senses that humans have. But being able to perceive sound doesnt necessarily mean you are actively hearing this sounds. What i mean by that is that you could hear the sounds but not receive the messages that the sound is sending to you. On the other hand we have listening. Listening is the ability to receive and interpret the messages. When it comes to hearing we dont make choices on what we hear, unless we close our ears and stop every sound from being perceived. But listening is different, we are able to choose what we want to listen to and what information we want to receive and interpret. I think it depends on the situation or what is your goal on doing active listening. if your goal is to gather information or receive a message, for sure you will do active listening. I think that structural features like race, gender or social class may interfere on how the message is perceived. That meaning that how you interpret what you listen it is connected also with who you are, that means your gender or race. For example, an American woman from NY would interpret differently someone talking on a podcast about mental health, while another woman being probably from a country where mental health is not discussed as much as in America, would think that the podcast is nonsense and what she is listening would not probably be received and interpreted as in the American woman case. I think that another structural element that would affect listening is your life experience. This meaning that based on what people been through  makes them receive the messages of what they’re listening in different ways. For the same thing that two people are listening, they might have different point of views and they might receive the messages that they find most important as based on their life experiences.

On the second episode of ‘Ways of Hearing’ it is described the relationship of people with listening and space around them. One of Krukowski participants on this episode says how ‘people nowadays are part of this bubble they create when they have their headphones’. They are not part of the social space, they block everyone and everything becoming asocial and create their own space on their own thoughts. While Schafer mentions how ‘the keynote sounds of a given place are important because they help to outline the character of men living among them.’ He goes further saying ‘ The keynote sounds of a landscape are those created by its geography and climate: water, wind, forests, plains, birds, insects and animals. Many of these sounds may possess archetypal significance; that is, they may have imprinted themselves so deeply on the people hearing them that life without them would be sensed as a distinct impoverishment.’ It is very interesting thinking of how important is hearing as related to space. What Schafer meant was that we connect sound to space and we get used with them to the point that not having them connected anymore would make our life not as lively as before.

The difference between hearing and listening is that in hearing, you can physically sit there and hear what others are saying, whereas listening is paying attention to the conversation. It might be a topic that we are interested in and want to know more. Yes, we choose what we listen to because we usually listen to things we are interested. We make these choices by paying attention to the details, making eye contact, making body gestures, and giving feedback. Criteria we use are paying attention, showing that I listen, providing feedback, and responding appropriately. It depends if structural features, such as race, gender, or social class, inform how we hear. It mainly depends on one’s perspective and thoughts on how they were raised, educated, social circles, and personal experiences. Other structural elements that affect our listening experiences can be our surroundings, influence from others, distraction, etc.


Schafer and Krukowski discuss the relationship between sound and space. They make sense of we utilize our hearing to find sounds around us. They additionally discuss how New York has been getting “gentrified.” They also discuss the surroundings of NYC, where everyone is captivated by their technology. Everyone has headphones on, using their phones or other electronics. When I am on the train or the bus, everyone is busy with their phones. They are listening to music, watching videos, making phone calls, etc. Everyone is trying to avoid contact with others around them.
