A Selection of Programme (3)
I have selected three piece of piano songs for the performance. The first song "F minor Nocturne" was written by Chopin.The second song is "Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence." This song was written for the movie "Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence". It is a japanese style piano song. The third piano song was written by Adrian York，which is an western style piano song.
B Technical Proficiency
My performance of the first song should have present less dynamic changes. So I graded myself 2 for the first song. However, I made some mistakes and the performance wasn't consistent. (The work demonstrates some control of musical elements. The technical challenges are sometimes met.) I made less mistakes in "Riding the New Wave," However I should pay more attention to the dynamic changes for the song. Finally, as my classmate suggested, I should played a longer duration for the last note for the last song "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence."
C Understanding of Style
The piano songs I chose to perform are contrasting. However, the contrasting wasn't well presented in the performance because my lack of dynamics for the songs. I should pay attention to the musical notation on the score and play the song at a lower speed in order to present the rich dynamics.
D Musical Communication
I think I meet the criteria "The work displays some musical communication." My performance was kinda rush and it was presented in the ending of the every songs. I should be careful how I finished the last note of the piano songs.
lFirst born children tend to be more successful in their careers. How to define success? To what extend can order of birth and level of income be related?
lHierarchical relationships are inevitable in human societies. This is a hasty generalization. Q: which society? How do you define hierarchical relationships?
lMost boys have a subconscious sexual attraction to their mothers and are jealous of their fathers. Hasty generalization. How many people does "most" represent? To what degree of attraction to their mothers is considered to be a subconscious sexual attraction? We can not conclude that "most" boys have a subconscious sexual attraction to their mothers and are jealous of their fathers if it is the obersevation of some people? It is how do you define most people, how many people? because everyone has a definition towards "most people" so the argument is hasty because people could have different definitions towards the words "most" due to different background and personalities.
lClass is the determining factor in educational success. What kind of class of what kind of education? how do you define success? There is no supporting evidence to prove the argument.

Topic 10: "Through different methods of justifications, we can reach conclusions in Ethics which are as well supported as those provided by Mathematics." To what extend would you agree?
Humans use reasoning to justify math.
Dico Simpliciter: an argument based on an unqualified generalization. For example: Exercise is good. Therefore everybody should exercise.
Hasty Generalization: you can’t speak French. Petey Bellows can’t speak French. I must therefore conclude that nobody at the University of Minnesota can speak French.
Post Hoc: “Let’s not take Bill on our picnic. Every time we take him out with us, it rains.” (ula Becker doesn’t cause the rain. She has no connection with the rain. You are guilty of Post Hoc if you blame Eula Becker.)
Contradictory Premises: If God can do anything, can He make a stone so heavy that He won’t be able to lift it. Because when the premises of an argument contradict each other, there can be no argument. If there is an irresistible force, there can be no immovable object. If there is an immovable object, there can be no irresistible force.
Ad Misericordiam: No Arguments
A man applies for a job. When the boss asks him what his qualifications are, he replies that he has a wife and six children at home, the wife is a helpless cripple, the children have nothing to eat, no clothes to wear, no shoes on their feet, there are no beds in the house, no coal in the cellar, and winter is coming
False Analogy: Here is an example: Students should be allowed to look at their textbooks during examinations. After all, surgeons have X-rays to guide them during an operation, lawyers have briefs to guide them during a trial, carpenters have blueprints to guide them when they are building a house.
the argument is all wrong. Doctors, lawyers, and carpenters aren’t taking a test to see how much they have learned, but students are. The situations are altogether different, and you can’t make an analogy between them
Hypothesis Contrary to Fact: If Madame Curie had not happened to leave a photographic plate in a drawer with a chunk of pitchblende, the world today would not know about radium
Maybe Madame Curie would have discovered radium at some later date. Maybe somebody else would have discovered it. Maybe any number of things would have happened. You can’t start with a hypothesis that is not true and then draw any supportable conclusions from it
Poisoning the Well: Two men are having a debate. The first one gets up and says, ‘My opponent is a notorious liar. You can’t believe a word that he is going to say.’
It’s not fair. The first man has poisoned the well before anybody could drink from it. He has hamstrung his opponent before he could even start ...
