  • Hawthorne Studies - 418 words
    One of Elton Mayos major involvements in direct observation was in the famed Western Electric researches, conducted at the companys Hawthorne Plant near Chicago, which ran from 1927 to 1932. (80) The work of Mayo and his associates had been preceded by a series of experiments conducted by engineers at Western Electric concerning the effect of the degree of illumination on worker productivity. (81) In the first of these experiments, three departments were exposed to different levels of lighting. The results were inconsistent. In one department, output fluctuated with no direct relationship to the intensity of illumination. In the second department, output remained relatively stable over the p ...

  • Aids And Society - 1,651 words
    The number of newborns infected by vertical transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus is increasing as the number of HIV-positive women increases within the United States. It is estimated that while seven thousand of the HIV-positive women become pregnant each year, between one thousand and two thousand of their newborns will be HIV-positive. The transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus from mother to child, the benefits of drugs intervention, and whether or not the HIV-screening process of pregnant women should remain voluntary or become mandatory are very serious issues that affect our society today. The HIV-virus has proven that it is not a disease to be taken lightly or ig ...

  • Hurry Up - 1,150 words
    Hurry Up Long recognized as one of God's greatest gifts to mankind, Ganja truly can heal the earth. Unknown to many today, cannabis hemp was used worldwide in paper, fiber, lamp oil and nautical applications throughout the 19th century, constituting "possibly the largest agricultural and industrial businesses in America" (Herer 83). In the early part of the 1800s cannabis was the number one medicine in the US (83). It held that spot tightly, until it was nudged to second place by morphine in 1863, unseated again in 1901 by aspirin (83). Throughout its usage history, doctors did not consider the effects of cannabis to be habit forming, anti-social, or violent. As Herer explains, "Mary Jane" c ...

  • Gun Control Misc - 952 words
    Do We Need Tougher Gun Control Laws? What does the sound of amendment mean? In its entirety it reads, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." Does this confer an unqualified right to bear arms? Or is it a right conditioned by the clause preceding the statement of right? Does the militia refer to the pe9ople generally, or does it specifically relate to the organized ("well regulated") military bodies of state and national guards and the armed forces? Gun control is one of many major topics of debate on Capitol Hill these days, but does it get the due attention that it needs? Gun related ...

  • Clinical Trials Information For Patients - 1,229 words
    Clinical Trials Information for Patients In cancer research, a clinical trial is an organized study conducted in people with cancer to answer specific questions about a new treatment or a new way of using a known treatment. Each study tries to increase medical knowledge and to find new and better ways to help cancer patients. Besides studying new anticancer drugs, clinical trials study new combinations of drugs already used in cancer treatment, new ways of giving treatment, and how changes in lifestyle can help cancer patients or prevent cancer from occurring. Other clinical trials compare the best known standard therapy with a newer therapy to see if one produces more cures and causes fewer ...

  • Public Sphere - 1,701 words
    The mathematical definition of the twentieth century corresponds to a hundred year period with a strictly defined beginning and an end. However, the picture differs when we look at the issue in a critical perspective. For most historians and social scientists, our century is characterized by vast and rapid changes in social, economical and political institutions. This analysis holds a large amount of validity even when the empirical data of a personal life experience is used. Therefore, the constraints for the definition of this era shall be closely related to institutional changes. At this point two major events turn out to be the "yardsticks" for a proper periodical limitation. The first o ...

  • Propofol Vs Thiopental - 2,452 words
    Neuromuscular blocking agents are an essential aspect of attaining adequate muscle relaxation in patients prior to attempting endotracheal intubation. Succinylcholine is one these agents used, most commonly when attempting a rapid sequence induction. Succinylcholine administration is associated with muscle fasciculations and subsequent myalgias postoperatively. A nondepolarizing neuromuscular agent is commonly administered to reduce the occurance of fasciculations and myalgias. Additionally, the induction agent Propofol, has been associated with further reducing fasciculations and myalgias. Propofol and Pentothol are commonly used anesthetic agents and are generally interchangable and equall ...

  • Yy - 312 words
    An experiment allows the researcher to control the situation being studied. Instead of being a passive recorder of what is going on, the researcher actively does something that he or she thinks will affect the subjects behavior and then observes what happens. These procedures allow the experimenter to draw conclusions about cause and effect. The aspect of an experiment situation manipulated or varied by the researcher is known as the independent variable. The reaction of the behavior that the researcher tries to predict- is the dependent variable. Every experiment has at least one independent and one dependent variable. Everything about the experimental situation expects the independent vari ...

  • Behavioral Cognitive Theories - 2,303 words
    There were several predominant theorists in the cognitive behavioral meta-theory. Each theorist came to their conclusions, were received, and added to therapeutic skills in different ways. Their biographical history allows for a better understanding of how they came upon their conclusions. Their theories add to the understanding of human nature. Their critics expose flaws or oversights in the theories. The techniques used in the action stage of therapy today all have some historical roots in these theories and the theories of others. The overall goal being to focus on making changes in behaviors, thoughts, and feelings while continuing to explore feelings and examine values, priorities, barr ...

Back in the 1970s, animal experiments led to groundless fears that marijuana blew holes in brain tissue. The experiments organisations like NIDA now fund are more sophisticated but the controversy still rages. George Koob, an addiction researcher from The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, claims the new message from the animals is simple: "The more we discover about the neurobiology of addiction the more common elements we're seeing between THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the main active ingredient in cannabis) and other drugs of abuse."

  • None Provided - 999 words
    The Effects of Various Wavelengths on Photosynthetic Rate Photosynthesis is the process by which autotrophic organisms convert light energy to chemical energy in the form of glucose [1]. Without this process life on earth would be very different because every organism directly or indirectly depends on photosynthesis. Because plants are at the bottom of the food chain they must create their own energy; this is done through photosynthesis. Various pigments located through out the leaves and stems of plants called chlorophylls absorb wavelengths from sunlight. They absorb all wavelengths of natural light (400-700 nanometers), except those between 525-550 nm which are reflected giving plants the ...
