You watch your normally bubbly child sluggishly get into the car after school. Your parent radar kicks in and you know something is wrong. Is she sick? Does she have a lot of homework? You ask her probing questions and finally through tears she tells you she has been pushed around all day, yelled at and called names from the other kids in school.
Yelling is everywhere these days. We see examples of this at sporting events, in stores, in the parking lot and some while driving their car. Wikipedia lists several reasons for yelling/screaming: 1 “Fear and Surprise” the result is to call attention to yourself. 2 “Happiness” which conveys a positive emotion to others. 3 “Danger and Pain” which informs others of danger. Reading on it cites the battle cry, death growl and rebel yell as more options to consider. Interestingly that this falls under oral communication to prepare for a battle.
March Madness is a sports term for playoffs in basketball. Teams face off to win the battle or game. Basketball is a fast-paced sport with subtle hits and jabs to the other team in an effort to put a ball into the hoop. When the jabs are caught a foul is called by a referee.
