Light Matter - 362 words
In order to understand what light is one has to understand how vision works. The process of visual perception is incredibly complex, involving many functions of the brain. In Arthur Zajonc's book "Catching the Light," he writes, "vision requires far more than a functioning physical organ. Without an inner light, without a formative visual imagination, we are blind." The function of registering visual information, seeing, requires learning to see, in other words, in order to see the light one must posses inner light. The process of visual perception is connected to all the other senses, functions of the body as well as mind. People learn to see by experience. For example: one acquires the kno ...

Human Behaviour In Business - 1,158 words
Managers studying skills and techniques of determining human resources can apply them to individuals in business. By learning human behaviour, managers can acquire the skills and techniques necessary to properly allocate human resources. As a manager, first of all you must learn about how people learn personality dimensions. Then you can determine people's behaviour types, and apply them to different employee positions. Crucial to the grand scheme of things is that managers must learn that implementing particular behaviour sciences requires a good deal of patience, effort, and time. Suggestions for managers to be successful in management include examining the needs of jobs, and matching them ...

Affolding In Education - 2,053 words
... ating such authentic simulations appears to limit its capacity to accommodate this. Even more ill-structured academic areas such as History and Philosophy require a level of context, even if that context is the academic one requiring the implementation of a culturally specific methodology and use of language. It is here, perhaps, that a Social Constructivist approach may be particularly useful. It could be argued that the use of the Web is best suited to that of a communications medium for collaborative approaches to learning rather than as a "24 hour a day glorified whiteboard" (Archee & Duin, 1995). Such a use would involve a high level of social rather than physical interaction; an as ...

Computer-based training (CBT) is an all-encompassing term used to describe any computer-delivered training including CD-ROM and the World Wide Web. CBT courseware curriculum development involves the use of integrated multimedia training tools that have taken the lead in developing training courseware. We have always had workplace learning systems. People best learn many tasks and skills at the workplace or very close to the workplace. There is also plenty of evidence to suggest that if people learn a task or a skill at their workplace, they are more likely to transfer that skill to actual work performance. The interfacing between workplace learning systems and corporate learning systems is a ...

Values Clarification - 1,631 words
The corruption of Americas youth is a popular topic today in the media, among lawmakers, and with concerned parents. Often the good old days of generations past are looked upon with longing because of their simpler ways. Decades ago the largest problems in schools were talking out in class, not paying attention, and forgetting to do homework. Todays problems are violence, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, and delinquency in general. Everyone believes these issues are a result of something different: bad home lives, lack of religious ideals, the media, the wrong education or no education at all. Throughout the years, moral education has been looked to as both an answer and cause. School ...

Bill Of Rights - 527 words
In a time of such progress and cultural diversity, one would thing that certain human rights would be honored and kept unfettered by laws. These human rights are some of the most basic elements having your own free will. But as time goes by, some of these rights are diminishing. When our forefathers wrote the Bill of Rights, they put the more important of these rights first, freedom of speech. Back in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, people had to watch what they say about the government, make sure they were practicing an approved religion, and could not voice there personal views for fear of being persecuted. Before the Bill of Rights, failure to adhere to the "standard" was gr ...

... ent all the more difficult. Unfortunately, malaria and yellow fever were not the only dangerous diseases that plagued the armies in the South Pacific. There were dysentery, scarlet fever, dengue fever and scrub typhus, another insect-borne disease. Yet there were thousands of native people who over the centuries had made the South Pacific their homes and seem to have made peace with its fierce nature and an unpredictable environment. They learned to get by with coconut milk when they were without disease free water. Although the early stage of the war touched only a small percentage of the indigenous population, those who were involved, did however, play very important roles. The Islande ...

Malcom X - 1,573 words
Malcolm X is considered one of the greatest civil rights activists in history. He was known for his somewhat violent message of blacks defending themselves. Despite his original message, he eventually became more peaceful toward whites. However, as his legacy was just beginning to change things for the good, he was abruptly killed by gunmen. Due to his indecisiveness and early death, Malcolm X had a great, yet inadequate impact on the civil rights movement. Malcolm little was born on May 19, 1925, in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Louise and Earl Little. In 1929 their house was firebombed by racists while the whole Little family was in the house.

Slaver And Politics - 854 words
The extent to which the debate over slavery was not really about black people but about whites can be seen politically, socially, religiously and economically. Slavery affecting politics is demonstrated politically in the Lincoln-Douglas debates. The real arguments were over which side, the north or the south, would gain more power from slavery by making it either a slave state or a free state. Douglas argued that slaves were not equal to whites in any fashion and they should not be free, which would give them a chance to be equal. Douglas states, I believe this government was made on the white basis. He further states, I believe it was made by white men, for the benefit of white men and the ...

Holocaust Paper - 1,811 words
Prejudices: We all have them. They are part of every one. We all prejudge people. We all must over come them. The Nazis could not. With the help of Hitler, their prejudices swept over the world like a disease. They beat and hurt any Jews they could find. The most horrible event in mankind happened because of their prejudices. This, of coarse, was the Holocaust. A burnt sacrifice; an offering, the whole of which was consumed by fire, among the Jews and some pagan nations. This bone chilling definition is a Holocaust. I am sure it seemed like a burning pit of fire to the Jews as they were burnt to a crisp in the incinerators. Their starving, empty stomachs must have been feeling as fire becaus ...

Humans Are More Alike Than Unlike - 610 words
"I looked up the road I was going and back the way I had came since I was not satisfied I stepped off the road and created a new path"(Maya Angelou) Humans are more alike than unlike. Once we in America grasp this concept only than will we began to create a new path for the world we live. Many times the word diversity rings in my ear like an annoying telephone that I do not want to answer. Sometimes I feel as we are caught up in a diversity scandal: attending diversity days, diversity workshops, and taking diversity classes just to say we are trying to do something about our racial problem we have in America. Personally I had to step away from these things to re-evaluate my beliefs and value ...

The American Scholar - 1,412 words
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American Scholar is one whose individual character is split. The Emersonian character is made up of many different parts, therefore influenced by several aspects of everyday life. As Emerson states, Man is priest, and scholar, and statesman, and producer, and soldier. In the divided or social state, these functions are parceled out to individuals, each of whom aims to do his stint of the joint work, whilst each other performs his (294). One can easily relate ones own life to each of these characteristics as it is evident what Emerson is stating. As man is both one of each person, he is all of them combined. As Emerson describes the influences on man as p ...

Creative Ways Of Learning - 880 words
The first thing I want to point out in this essay is that I've been in school for about eleven years and I'm finally being taught how to learn. These methods have been around for a while and still the school system is so set in it's ways that it is barely beginning to change. But anyway we've been taught about left and right brain dominance. We have learnt that there are three main ways that people learn . There are Kinaesthetic, Auditory and Visual learners. It is important to know which one you are. One of the most important things when you're learning is to be relaxed. It is similar to when you cannot find your keys. The worst thing to do is to get all worked up and try harder. What you s ...

Classical Operant And Observational Conditioning - 762 words
Classical, operant, and observational are all types of conditioning and learning. Conditioning, in psychology, is causing an organism to exhibit a specific response to a stimulus. A stimulus is anything that Classical conditioning is a form of learning, in which a reflexive or automatic response transfers from one stimulus to another. For instance, a person who has had painful experiences at the dentists office may become fearful at just the sight of the dentists office building. Fear, a natural response to a painful stimulus, has transferred to a different stimulus, the sight of a building. Most psychologists believe that classical conditioning occurs when a person forms a mental associatio ...

Specific treatment for the substance abuse is usually also needed. After a proper diagnosis, there are many treatments available for patients suffering from OCD. However, before any treatment is administered, the patient and family are educated about OCD and its treatment as a medical illness. First of all, there are medications available.

Greed - 434 words
Giving money to a charity really should be given from the heart, not just to make people look better. Donating to the poor or the sick should not be just for recognition of oneself. Giving should be done, not to get a name in the newspaper or on a plaque, but to help those who are less fortunate. In order to make the giving valuable, to the giver, they should experience or witness the lives of the less fortunate or sick. Community service is a very valuable way to get something out of life and Community service can help the more fortunate to understand and appreciate the needs of the sick, the poor and the destroyed environment.
