The term 'Communication' has been derived from the Latin word 'communis' that means 'common'. Thus 'to communicate' means 'to make common' or 'to make known'. This act of making common and known is carried out through exchange of thoughts, ideas or the like. The exchange of thoughts and ideas can be had by gestures, signs, signals, speech or writing. People are said to be in communication when they discuss some matter, or when they talk on telephone, or when they exchange information through letters.
Basically, communication is sharing information, whether in writing or orally. The message, the medium by which the message/information is sent (e.g., written, oral, audio, visual), and the receiver or target of the communication information (decoder). Any disruption, garbling, malfunction, etc. at any point of that communication sequence could result in the failure of a successful communication.

Any communication involves a particle which can be in one of four categories: an object. . .

. . . a written message. . .

. . . a spoken word. . .

. . . or an idea.

Any successful communication contains all the elements shown here. Any failure to communicate can be analyzed against these components to isolate what went wrong

Ali has accomplished my achievements during an era when African-Americas weren’t allowed any opportunities. The career of Cassius Clay began at the age of twelve.

As he became more dedicated to boxing, Clay advanced to winning six Kentucky Golden Gloves Championships, two National Golden Glove tournaments and two National AAU titles. He won a gold medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics. The career highlight for Cassius Clay was being titled heavyweight champion after his defeating Sonny Liston. Ali contributes to variety of charities and services. “ I am devoting much of his life today healing the human spirit. My chosen path for doing this is my religion. “ quoted Muhammad.

The Kite Runner: Portrayal of Ali

...The Kite Runner Practice Questions Explore the ways in which Hosseini portrays Ali: During the novel Ali is portrayed as a victim, First off, Baba has an affair with Ali's wife and fathers Hassan. Then, Amir forces Ali and Hassan to leave Baba's house. Finally, in the random violence now so common in war, Ali steps on a land mine and dies. However, like Hassan and Sohrab, Ali is a kind and good person. He has a beautiful voice and Amir and Hassan love to hear him sing. He remains faithful to Baba even though Baba dishonored Ali by sleeping with Sanaubar. Ali is also devout – his humble, constant faith perhaps influences Amir's own religious awakening later in the novel. Ali makes much fewer appearances in the novel compared to the other characters but his speeches are very important. Some of the main ones are: [...] Ali had congenital paralysis of his lower face muscles, a condition that rendered him unable to smile and left him perpetually grim-faced. (2.20) But polio had left Ali with a twisted, atrophied right leg that was sallow skin over bone with little in between except a paper-thin layer of muscle. [...]. I watched him [Ali] swing his scraggy leg in a sweeping arc, watched his whole body tilt impossibly to the right every time he planted that foot. It seemed a minor miracle he didn't tip over with each step. [...]. Ali's face frightened some of the younger children in the neighborhood. [...]. Some had taken to calling him Babalu, or Boogeyman.

After having read, my feelings could be compared only with feelings of person who really found a treasure. It’s best novel I have read ever.

This was a love between two young people with different cultures, religions and even outlooks on life were different. About love which appears on the streets of Baku. About love which goes through many barriers and in spite of everything it was saved. Love which made stay them together, but religion and war which separated them. The novel also covers the history and the differences of cultures like Arabian, Georgian, Russian, Armenian, Turkish and Persian. Due to quotes said by “Times” newspaper, I believe that I would not be mistaken to say that this story is the only story which covers East and West, Islam and Christianity, both.

Muhammad Ali

...Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali, whose birth name was Cassius Marcellus Clay, was born in Louisville, Kentucky January 17, 1942. He was named for a white, Kentucky abolitionist, Cassius M. Clay, and received the name Marcellus from his father’s name. Ali’s father, Marcellus Clay was a mural painter who did a lot of work for many churches in the community and his mother Odessa (Grady) Clay was a domestic worker. As a young boy, Cassius Clay was full of energy and carried a loud mouth wherever he went. One day when Ali discovered that someone stole his bicycle, he became enraged and made loud threatening comments by exclaiming that he would “whup whoever stole it.” Upon hearing these threats, Louisville police officer Joe Martin persuaded Ali to take out his frustration in the boxing ring rather than on the dangerous streets of Louisville. At age 12, Ali’s boxing career had officially begun. Martin started Ali working out in Louisville’s Columbia Gym, and Ali became passionately devoted to the sport. With the help of a black trainer named Fred Stoner, who taught Ali the techniques of boxing and to move with the grace of a dancer, Ali became a very skilled and deadly competitor.

Sociolinguistics in Ali G Interview

...this case, is Ali G. Ali G’s English is much different from the Standard British English of Sir Boyson, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary wise. Even though Ali himself is a fictional character, everything about him was built to be believed in, including his language. His English is probably Jafaican accent with a shade of thuggish English. To fully understand the language Ali G uses is to investigate every episodes of his talk show, which within the scope of this essay is fundamentally impossible. Nonetheless, most seem to agree that Ali G’s language is Jafaican, according to several articles about the character’s English and accent. According to Kerswill (2014, p. 432), Jafaican English or Multicultural London English is basically “a combination of inner city’s language, second-language English, African, Caribbean and Asian Englishes, local dialect, London Jamaican Creole, Standard English and languages other than English”. However, because not all elements of Multicultural London English are recognizable in Ali G’s speech pattern, his language will instead be analyzed in terms of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation with relations to those of Sir Boyson’s English to draw out the differences between the two types of English. In terms of grammar, Sir Boyson’s English follows the grammar rules strictly while Ali G’s grammar is quite poor. Firstly, there is no distinct usage of subject and verb agreement. This can be seen in the first part of the video where Ali......

Muhammad Ali Essay

...Muhammad Ali  born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial and polarizing figure both inside and outside the boxing ring. Clay was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and he began training when he was 12 years old. At 22, he won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston in an upset in 1964. Shortly after that, Clay converted to Islam, changed his "slave" name to Ali, and gave a message of racial pride for African Americans and resistance to white domination. In 1966, two years after winning the heavyweight title, Ali further antagonized the white establishment by refusing to be conscripted into the U.S. military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to American involvement in the Vietnam War. He was eventually arrested and found guilty of draft evasion charges and stripped of his boxing titles, which he successfully appealed in the U.S. Supreme Court where, in 1971, his conviction was overturned. Due to this hiatus, he had not fought again for nearly four years—losing a time of peak performance as an athlete. Ali's actions as a conscientious objector to the war made him an icon for the larger counterculture generation. Ali remains the only three-time lineal world heavyweight champion; he won the title in 1964, 1974, and 1978. Between February 25, 1964, and September 19, 1964, Ali reigned as the heavyweight boxing champion. Nicknamed......

In 1954, when Ali was only 12 years old, his bike was stolen when he was with a friend at the Columbia auditorium. Boiling with rage, young Cassius encountered Joe Martin, a police officer. It was Martin who first advised him to learn boxing before he thought about fighting with anybody for revenge! This was the time when Clay began training with Fred Stoner. With Stoner’s training, Clay then won six Kentucky Golden Gloves title and many more medals. Young Cassius thus began dreaming about being a heavyweight champion at an early age.  As a teenager, this boy completely dedicated himself to boxing. He practiced with unmatched fervor. His constant practice set him off from other boys. The talent and hard work is what helped him to bag all the medals even before he turned 18 years of age.

Muhammad Ali

...Muhammad Ali: World Champion and Role Model World renown Muhammad Ali is known for his many championship titles in boxing along with his professional record of 56-5-0. While in the ring, he would always follow his motto “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” (“Muhammad Ali” 1). Muhammad Ali was motivated to fight by a police officer one day and he had no idea that that decision to begin fighting would dramatically change his future. Through determination Muhammad Ali became a world famous boxer and changed how the sport is played today. After his retirement he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which led him to want to help other people with that disease and proceed with other humanitarian work. Being a world famous boxer, Muhammad Ali influenced many children with his unique fighting styles and how others now perceived the sport. Students of boxing would look back at his fights and notice that he “brought beauty and grace to the most uncompromising of sports” (Knauer 29). People getting into the sport of boxing look up to him as a role model trying to mimic his styles and copying his capability to “sway back” (Knauer 27), which was “a tactic that appalled to experts.” He mastered a skill that was very hard to do and put his own little spin on it. According to Kelly Knauer, he also was known for his extraordinary excess of skill and character (29).
