Central’s Wildcat-Faculty May Want to Retract Claws

R-E-S-P-E-C-T,

FIND OUT WHAT THAT MEANS TO ME

pic-1Since TheWallStreetJacob’s first quarter at Central Washington University in 2014, it seems students talk more about the not-so-good professors than those who have found a warm place in a student’s heart to call home.

Central Washington University welcomes all walks of life to its campus. At least, that’s what President James Gaudino believes in. However, are the professors, both tenure and non-tenure track, aware of this? Having heard many stories about teachers disrespecting students, shutting down students’ class-discussion-comments, and making students feel as though their voice doesn’t matter is a major crisis.

FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE

Faculty who treat students how they’d want to be treated, help to unify the classroom and show others they should follow the golden rule, too. Favoring students, bad idea. The 2014-2017 school years included many discussions of faculty showing disregard for students across campus.

The Student Union and Recreation Center, located in the center of campus, serves as an information-library, housing many heated novels of students clashing with faculty because of instructor’s misinterpretations, poor work ethic, or failure to respect a student’s ideas.

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SEW

Being aware of what you do and say is essential to your personal-PR or public relations. When life figuratively hands you needles and a spool of yarn, sew something you can be proud of. In short, your actions have consequences.

 

 

 

Faculty may land in hot water if they’re not aware of their attitude or negative verbal or non-verbal communication toward students who haven’t aimed or fired anything at them.

DON’T BURN BRIDGES

If students don’t feel like they’re in a safe, educational environment to learn, grow, and interact with their professors and classmates, this can lead to a potential “fire.”

Instructors need to spark teaching strategies and implement respectful tactics in class that make students feel safe, eager to learn, and excited for class the next day.

Of course, work ethic is much like a fingerprint. Science Correspondent and writer for The Telegraph Sarah Knapton reported Mr. Silverman from the Home Office’s first Forensic Science Regulator that “No two fingerprints are ever exactly alike in every detail, even two impressions recorded immediately after each other from the same finger,” he said.

USE YOUR HEAD

Professor Dumbledore had great respect for the workplace. He listened to all his students, was clear, concise, and was an excellent public speaker, who didn’t judge others before he got to know them. It’s essential that both instructors and students are paying attention to their surroundings and themselves. It’s also important that students respect their superiors in any field of work.

When students maintain a consistent image with their leaders, managers, or supervisors, it helps them determine if who they hired is genuinely a kind person or not.

Some stories shot around campus are that professors don’t make sense when explaining things because they use too many words students don’t know and become upset if asked to restate their thought.

IT’S SIMPLE; BE SIMPLE

From tragedy to comedy, TheWallStreetJacob has heard it all. Some professors have the feather to a Wildcat’s funny-bone, while other instructors receive the monotone chirping of crickets and grasshoppers, who even outside, wished they (and the class) hadn’t heard a desperate attempt at humor or the disrespectful tone of a university professor.

If a professor is rude, frustrated, or having a bad day (or life…), that’s no excuse to take it out on students they may or may not know. That’s why it’s important for professors to explain things calmly and politely, in order to avoid restatement and having to clarify.

SMILE, YOU’RE ON CANDID CAMERA

Universities are a place for making mistakes and learning from them, making connections, and becoming well rounded in one’s passion in life, all while having fun. It’s important for instructors and students to smile. Everyone’s watching you!

Respect all walks of life and have an excitement for growing with others who love and share the same passion as you. The more faculty on campus who understand this, the less negative reporting students will have toward instructors on campus.

“Linebacker” Kellyanne Conway Plays Defense for Trump in Interviews with the Press

hike

You could say Donald J. Trump has become America’s “quarterback” now that he’s the President of the United States–deciding where to throw the ball. But how hard is too hard a catch Trump’s teammates might be forced to handle? The press has its own offensive and defensive teams ready to intercept.

“If you’re part of Team Trump, you walk around with these gaping, seeping wounds every single day,” said Trump’s Senior Advisor and Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway on the set of Fox News…Then, is it in anyone’s best interest to work for such an administration that doesn’t seem to want to get along with news reporters?

Whether or not you live in the United States, you’re probably aware that President Trump isn’t on the same page as many news outlets in the U.S., whose job it is to call upon the red carpet those who do not defend the U.S. Constitution or speak the truth. This crisis could impact how First-Amendment-scholars (journalists) confront the Trump Administration.

It’s noticeable how strategic Conway is when encouraged to respond on behalf of President Trump for important matters or issues addressed by her interviewers. One has to wonder why anyone would want a job that entails “seeping wounds.” Doesn’t seem very smart.

In countless interviews with CNN, Fox News, ABC News and The View‘s “The Political View,” Conway may have shown signs of “Trumpitis,” seen by the way former 2016 U.S. candidate Trump responded to questions during his campaign, prior to his inauguration, leading questions away from answers and toward another question.

It is obvious to TheWallStreetJacob that Conway takes on a “Trumpian” approach toward answering questions from the press, media or reporters, which almost always sparks debate, confusion or a heated argument during live broadcasts.

Is Conway’s lack of support to the media in addressing important matters from a non-biased perspective intentional or has her affiliation with Trump given the media a reason to believe Conway’s merely playing hardball to hide information from the Trump Administration, who doesn’t want private information leaked to the public?

Sabotage against an internal body of news correspondents across an entire nation or not, Conway might be hurting her reputation by advocating for President Trump’s recently thrown shade since his 2016-electoral college vote-victory.

For instance, President Trump has called many news sources “Fake News,” offending many news anchors such as Fox News’s Chris Wallace. When Wallace brought that to Conway’s attention during an interview, his statement was redirected to Conway’s justification to call news sources out as being fake.

This is because perhaps Conway feels as though very little recognition has been given to the Trump Administration for its showmanship in class, kindness and support for American people. For further elaboration on this matter, TheWallStreetJacob encourages you to continue reading.

Of course, while trading facts–or were they trading “alternative facts?”–Wallace appeared to have glazed over during Conway’s retaliations throughout heavier discussions in the interview. And yes…more insults were given to news anchors around the country on the etiquette of proper news coverage by Conway.

“If you’re part of Team Trump, you walk around with these gaping, seeping wounds every single day. And, and that’s fine. I believe in a full and fair press. I’m here every Sunday morning. I haven’t slept in in months. I believe in a full and fair press, but with a free press comes responsibility, and the responsibility is to get the story right. Biased coverage, easy to detect–incomplete coverage–impossible to detect.

President Trump has signed all these executive orders this week. He’s met with these heads-of-state, he’s done so many things to stimulate the economy, to boost wages, to create new jobs. Where’s the coverage?” said Conway.

One thing is certain. The Trump Administration have the ball and is kicking off into a rough net since Trump took office. Will the press intercept Trump and his top players for a major touchdown that can upset The Trump Administration by divulging potentially unconstitutional acts, or is The Trump Administration too slick for reporters to get their hands on classified information that may expose President Trump as someone who his supporters wouldn’t believe he is?

What is Public Relations?

the-rock

Imagine you work for the coast guard, flying over the Pacific Ocean in a rescue chopper. You see one person fighting for their lives against an unforgiving current and another person trapped on an island. But you only have enough fuel to rescue one of them.

Shaking Hands Continents Hands Policy Shake

The PRSA definition is “Public relations is a strategic communication process that builds mutually beneficial relationships between organizations and their publics.”

You take a deep breath and fly in for a closer look. You realize you can only rescue one of them and so you save the person on the island because you could land on the beach.

They thank you for your heroics, but tell you that you should’ve saved the person about to drown because they were in a worse situation and the person you rescued had enough food on the island to survive for a week. Now, the pit of your stomach turns and twists, you turn back to look at the person in the water, but they’re no longer visible. You have fear, uncertainty and doubt for their survival.

trust-meter Was the choice you made good or bad? Who you are reflects negatively and you wish you could do it all over again to not have a bad reputation. The reputation of a rescuer has been killed and now every rescuer worldwide are believed to be incompetent life savers. The person you rescued was a public relations professor and informs you that your decision has affected how he perceives everyone who wears your uniform and everyone who makes a living by helping others live.

The professor explains that public relations is more than merely a one-man-show, while it only takes one person to make everyone look bad, pending on the situation and parts that help make it whole. How do you make up for looking like an incompetent life saver and one who’s soiled the image of every rescuer?

The answer’s simple. You tell the professor that you made a decision in no time at all and knew that only one life could be saved. If you hadn’t saved the professor, you couldn’t have known there was food enough for one week. You’ve regained confidence and told him you’re a trained professional who’s saved thousands of lives and knows how to weigh difficult decisions more than most people. The professor thanks you and you’ve restored your image.

But has every rescuer had their image restored now that the professor knew he was wrong to critique your work ethic? Yes, but how? Because you know who you are as an individual and telling the truth, telling it all, telling it fast, and moving on helped ensure the professor that all others in your field are confident, skilled, and competent in their work.
