|1.||Hierarchy of Contact|
In the digital age we all have a multitude of options for communication. It can be inferred that there is a kind of "Contact Hierarchy" and "Contact Continuum" as not all modes hold the same weight with communication ranging from 1-10.
Hierarchy of contact in 2010 as defined by this contributor:
1. Face to face
3. Personal Letter
4. SMS, BBIM
6. Personal message eg FB
7. Instant Message eg FB, MSN
8. Wall postings, comments
8. "Like," "Poke"
9. Nil contact.
10. Active blocking of contact.
Note: Higher order = increased responsiveness.
A more serious and/or important matter or message would attract a higher order of communication, with the top order being face to face. There are so many ways to communicate, the options are greater than ever before. But is all modes of communication the same, and attracting the same weight of force? Therefore there is a hierarchy. This may vary per user, but there is a hierarchy.
Hierarchy of Contact refers to how the more important the message or reason to communicate, or the person to communicate with, the higher in the order that communication would be. Conversely, less important is therefore lower.
Example, you really need to speak with someone about something serious, you want to face to face with them. If its not serious at all, you might make a posting on their social network wall.
At the end of the hierarchy is active blocking, where someone deliberately refuses any mode of contact.
|2.||hierarchy of asians|
A system established to readily identify the stands of all major Asian groups of not limited to but most common to Southern California.
At the top of the hierarchy are the Koreans and Japanese. These two groups hate each other but almost have a interdependence when it comes to culture, media and entertainment. A close second are the Chinese. They may look Korean or Japanese but they lack in style and common sense.
Next we get to the L.G.As, Short for Low Grade Asians. These Asians are mostly from Southeast Asia.
Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, and Thai
*many people think that Filipinos are Asians but they are more of an exotic islanders. The U.G.As dont really consider the Filipinos to follow under the Asian Hierarchy system
U.G.A 1:I can't believe you hang out with those L.G.As
U.G.A 2: Dude, L.G.As are people too.
White guy: WTFs a L.G.A? Is there some kind of hierarchy of asians?
U.G.A 1 and 2: Duhhh... you didnt know that?
The Rock Hierarchy consists of several bands that are the Rulers of Rock. The Gods of rock are Led Zeppelin. The Lords of Rock are AC/DC. There are two main Kings of Rock. These are David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix. The Dukes of Rock are The Who. Finally, there are the Kights of Rock. These are Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, and The Doors
"Hey, have you heard about the Rock Hierarchy?"
"Is that like Avril Lavigne and Simple Plan? They kick ass. They taught me how to be punk."
(Members of the Rock Hierarchy would now either come back from the dead OR swoop down on this person and douse them in acid.)
The order of digits in a number or the order of letters in a word or the order of characteristics in a classification table.
The horizontal hierarchy of our number system places the ten's column to the left and adjacent to the one's column.
|5.||high school sports hierarchy|
The ranking system that makes football cool and golf...well...not so cool.
Damn that high school sports hierarchy!
|6.||academic social immobility|
The inability of an individual's social status to change in a school hierarchy. Can also apply to colleges and universities. Usually a consequence of a school environment where cliques are a strong and omnipresent force. Generally results in cliques sticking together for longer than usual, stark contrasts of quality in the social lives of individual students, and close relationships (plus other social luxuries) being limited to the school alpha males and alpha females while those less fortunate are crushed through drudgery such as homework. Antonym of "academic social mobility".
One of the foundations of an elitist "student body" is academic social immobility. Wherever you happen to be in the school hierarchy, whether you be popular and successful or excluded and oppressed, you will stay there for the rest of your school days.
|7.||high school sports hierarchy|
The ranking system of sports that are cool to not-so-cool.
