It is actually a very short discourse that only took Friedman about one minute to deliver orally.
The disparities between the two mediums of communication could be evaluated in terms of the impact to the audience; the clarity within which the message was sent; the ability to emphasize some points; and the overall effectiveness in understanding the message that was originally intended to be relayed. The video presentation accorded the audience with the opportunity to see or visualize the author as he relayed the information or contents verbally. The author delivered the message in a manner where he seemed to be relaying the information to another person, someone he was looking at (and not the audience). His face was actually positioned not directly to the audience; but somewhat skewed to the right where he seemed to be looking a person or the camera which was positioned accordingly. However, the video presentation accorded the audience with verbal cues that enhanced or highlighted some portions of his message through the manner of speech: pausing between phrases or sentences; movements of his head; changes in posture (slight shifts in his seating position); and modulation of his voice or tone that assisted in conveying the appropriate message.
With the written discourse, the information could also be clearly understood. However, the intensity of stressing some points could not have been properly established, since it would depend on the readers’ competencies to effectively understand. For instance, this narrative discourse would be comprehended differently between a reader with a high school level, as compared to that of a university graduate, or a professional.

Work life balance is considered as one of the most important concept for the organizations competing in today’s corporate world. Organizations cannot progress if their employees are going to be treated as machines whose sole aim is to provide earn profits for its masters.
Furthermore, there is evidence from academic research that generational values differ (Brandth and Kvande, 251-267, 2001) and that young people today emphasise achievement of work/life balance more than their predecessors (Lewis et al, 2002). If this is the case, then organisations need to understand how any perceived 'imbalance' or conflict between work and non-work arises and by what means it might be alleviated if they are to motivate and retain their younger employees.
I believe today's medium possess a kind of 'documental surface' which are connected with the inner value of contents and have interested in how these phenomenon applied to artwork, especially two-dimensional artwork. I also noted these phenomenons suggest visual information like certain event, fact and value in a certain way of each medium.
Is the value of work and material things overemphasized? How is family influenced by the long weekends? Of course, people need to and want to go home early enough to devote their time to the family members and they would prefer leaving all work-related issues at workplace.
According to the essay, the issue that surrounds men and women concerning their ability to balance their personal life – that means their family life – and their job continues to be an interest among the public. Moreover, despite all the improvements that the society is doing in order to address the subject in equality between the sexes.
According to the author, people are dynamic in nature. In this regard, it is possible to establish a standard work-life-balance for people. The two components are crucial because they form the basic needs of every person. This is because different people have unique priorities. The gender issue exposes the issue of inequality in the organizations.
