Soc 111—Introductory Sociology Weisberg Assignment Malcolm Gladwell's article from The New Yorker published on January 19, 1999,  “Six Degrees of Lois Weisberg” can be found at the following URL: http://www.gladwell.com/pdf/weisberg.pdf To answer the questions below,  you will only need to read sections 1 and 3 – 6 . Purpose The purpose of this assignment is to get exposure to "popularized" sociological  research. Context Scientists often present their research in ways that are difficult for most of us to  understand. Part of the reason is that scientists develop specialized language (we  often refer to this type of language as jargon) that makes it easier for them to  communicate with each other. Fortunately, there are a few people out there like  Gladwell who popularize research by rewriting it in ways that the general public can  understand.
