Question and answer
What are some reasons you might consider data or information to lack validity, credibility, or reliability? Explain your answer by using examples
There are many reasons that information cannot be reliable and lack credibility. The first of these reasons is lake of supporting evidence. [ When conducting research for an essay or for a new business proposition the researcher must have evidence that supports their writing from sources that can back up their proposed ideas. If an information source cannot provide sources and substantial
corroborating evidence, then the research needs to move on to a new source. Another way I might consider information to be incorrect is if it conflicts with background information I may have obtained about the topic. For instance if I were to research information on how much oil flows through the Alaska pipe line and the number of barrels was different then the number I am familiar with, I would consider finding more sources to either back up what I know or what the first source listed. Many sources of information come from people or organizations that have a special interest in the information being presented. This can cause the information to be biased in a way that persuades the reader to believe the information being presented and form an opinion that shows favor to the reader or organization. This happens a lot in the advertisement of prescription drugs. Drug companies list all the benefits of the drug but fail to inform the audience all the side effects of the drug. In order to combat the effects of not creditable or unreliable information one should use multiple sources and always question the information being presented........... ]

Consider the following statement: Most disagreements or differences of opinion are more often a result of faulty, misunderstood, or confusing premises, rather than faulty reasoning from a valid premise. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Explain your answer.
Weegy: I agree with that statement. If your premise is wrong, whether due to confusion or misunderstanding, you have no chance of reaching a consistent conclusion regarding a set of facts.

Explain how demonstrative communication involves listening and responding.
Weegy: Demonstrative communication, the process of sending and receiving messages and involves exchanging thoughts, messages, or information. [ This form of communication includes verbal and nonverbal, written or visual, sending, and receiving of messages (Nayab, 2010). Communication in the manner of facial expressions, the tone of voice, or body language can either be effective or ineffective, positive or negative, for both the sender and the receiver. This paper will provide examples showing how demonstrative communication can be effective, ineffective, positive, and negative for the sender and receiver in nonverbal and unwritten communication. This paper will attempt to explain how demonstrative communication involves listening and responding. Demonstrative communication is a tool to reinforce verbal communication but when used alone will also convey a message. The most common forms of nonverbal communication is the use of facial expressions and hand gestures. Hand gestures help one to keep the attention of an audience, however; if used excessively can become a distraction and have a negative effect, resulting in the audience not receiving the full message as intended. Body movement while talking can have the same positive and negative effects on an audience. Excessive movement back and forth, swaying from one side to another can distract and cause a loss of focus on the topic of discussion but if movement is kept at an appropriate level, it can keep the interest and attention of the receiver. ] (More)

What are three reasons why informative presentations are important?
Weegy: Some professional speakers will tell you that there are four reasons for public speaking: to inform, to persuade, to inspire, or to entertain. On the other hand, most college texts on public speaking will tell you there are only three reasons. [ They do not include speaking to inspire because that category will fall into either the informative or the persuasive category. [Public speaking as a means to entertain is not covered in this article because it is a topic unto itself.] With the informative presentation, you may be teaching your audience about something, you may be talking about a death-defying experience, or you could be describing your business to your leads group. Whatever your subject is, your primary goal with the informative is to deliver a speech or presentation that is descriptive. Your objective is not to sell anything or persuade anyone, it is merely to teach or inform. The informative presentation can have a number of main points, although most books will suggest that you should limit your main points to five. Article Source: ] (More)
