Valiente o Honorable? En la historia “Espuma y nada Mas” el conflicto principal del barbero revuelva alrededor de si debe asesinar al capitán Torres para demostrar su dedicación a la revolución como un hombre valiente; o si debe seguir trabajando como siempre y no violar su conciencia. En mi opinión, cuando escogía su honor era la decisión correcta. En general, la mayoría de la gente piensa que ser valiente es lo mismo que ser honorable. En mi opinión, aunque los dos conceptos tienen mucho en común, la situación que el barbero encuentra es un buen ejemplo que algunas veces necesitas tomar una decisión entre los dos. El capitán Torres es su enemigo, ha matado muchos de sus compañeros—entonces, es natural que el barbero empieza a pensar que tiene la oportunidad perfecta para asesinarlo. Pero empieza a hacer preguntas como ¿Qué pasaría después? ¿Cuándo hay tanta sangre que sale por debajo de la puerta, hasta la calle, y “todo el mundo supiera lo que pasó?” Es obvio que el barbero tiene miedo, pero al mismo tiempo es buen hombre. Él sabe que probablemente sería más “valiente” asesinar al capitán con los ojos cerrados. Pero no es necesariamente muy honorable. Es valiente participar en una guerra, pero (otra vez) no significa que es necesariamente honorable. De vez en cuando es necesario robar la vida de alguien para mejorar la mayoría de la población, pero todavía no tenemos el derecho de quitar una vida. El barbero dice que “no es asesino,” y por eso escuchaba a su conciencia por sí mismo en vez de intentar ser como un valiente héroe y hacer más que puede. En realidad, asesinar al Capitán Torres no cambiaría tanto porque probablemente solo el espacio dejado seria llenado con alguien peor todavía. La situación del perspectivo del capitán Torres es muy interesante para considerar. No lo sabemos hasta el fin de la historia, pero el capitán está consciente de la…...

Attention Span

...An individual’s attention span is the length of time one can focus on something before becoming bored or overloaded with information. That amount of time varies from person to person and depends on the type of activity. A person likely to have a longer attention span while doing an active, hands-on project then listening passively to a presentation. People also more likely to pay attention and concentrate longer while being entertained than being taught. The traditional way of teaching students in this modern era is no longer effective. Due to the fast transition from books to online libraries posted on the board to PowerPoint presentations, teachers are having a difficulty in catching the students’ attention. Their attention doesn’t only depend on the modern techniques but it also depends on their age and personality. As in group or a class on can seek full attention by having fun and through enjoyable activities before the start of the class. Activities should not be repetitive and lame because students get bored when same things are being asked for them to do. Attention problems consists of the difficulty that some students have in working for extended periods of time or the trouble that they have focusing on a subject or an activity for even a short period of time. In this case, teachers are adjusting to their students’ needs. Also, teachers can consider motivational strategies. Make the students interested through self-motivation like for example, rewarding them with......

Bandwagon Appeal: “Cash for Clunkers”; The New York Times, September 30, 2012 The argument on this article is about how the people think that something should to be done because the majority does it. The "Cash for Clunkers" program has been a success.

Life Span

...Life Span Perspective          The life span perspective of development provides intriguing information about the development of individuals through their lifespan, such as who individuals are, how individuals came to be who they are, and who those individuals will become. Psychoanalytic theories offer insight into life span development and explain the stages of development that individuals proceed through in their lifespan. The life span perspective of development also provides important information in regard to how the effects of heredity, and the environment may interact to produce individual differences in life span development. Life Span Perspective of Development           To study human development the life span perspective is necessary because it does not just take into account the development that occurs in childhood or adulthood but every phases of life (Berger, 2011). The life span perspective is a view of human development characterized by multicontextual, multicultural, multidisciplinary, multidirectional, and plastic characteristics Development is multicontextual, therefore the several contexts, such as economic constraints, family patterns, and historical conditions embed the lives of humans (Berger, 2011). Development is multicultural; therefore several cultures affect the development of individuals. Development is multidisciplinary; therefore psychology and other disciplines, such as biology, neuroscience, education, economics, anthropology, sociology,......

From an early age we learn to depend on our parents for care and support, then as we become adults ourselves we turn around and take care of our own children. The cycle of life is repeated over and over. Some psychologist developed their own ideas or theories about life and two of the psychologist with big ideas or theories are Sigmund Freud and John B. Watson. Sigmund Freud’s Theory In the psychoanalytical theory Freud outlines that deep motives, inner drives, and unconscious needs are the foundation of behaviors. These forces influence our development and our behavior as human beings (Berger, 2011). He developed his theory by observing and listening to the thoughts and fantasies of people. He came up with three stages of development in the first six years of life. They are oral, anal, and phallic in the first stage the oral stage is being dependent on one parents for food and nourishment, anal stage is when a child learns to potty train and go to the bathroom on his/her own. The last stage is phallic stage in this stage a child learns to identify there self as either a boy or a girl, they also learn pride, fear, and envy. Freud claims that all behavior is linked back to these stages of development. ......

Composition and Inverse

...Composition and Inverse Alicia Frambro MAT 222: Intermediate Algebra Prof: Michael Smith September 22, 2013 Composition and Inverse When using functions, there are different ways to solve various values. Many companies use these functions to monitor business pertaining gross profit and many other operations such as adjusting productivity. Visual examples of these functions are graphs. They provide a visual relationship between composition and inverse solutions as well and the difference between profit gain and profit loss for a business. The following functions will be used to solve certain problems. fx=2x+5 g(x)=x2-3 (x) = 7+x3 f-h(4) Use rule of composition and solve which is f(4)-h(4). f(x)-h(x)= 2x+5-(7-x) 2(4) +5- 7-43 Substitute 4 for x. 8+ 5- 33 Use order of operations to solve. 8+5-1= 12 Therefore (f-h)(4)= 12 Evaluate two compositions of the above functions. A. (fog)(x) B. (fog)(x) The method that should be used to solve is to find the solution of one function and then substitute the solution for x in the other solution. For A we would first solve for g(x) and substitute the solution for x into f(x). A. (fog)(x)= f(g(x)) (fog)(x)= f(x2-3) (fog)(x)= 2(x2-3) +5 Substitute g(x) for x in f(x). (fog)(x) = 2x2-6+5 Simplify by using the distributive property and order of operations. (fog)(x)= 2x2 -1 Answer. B.

Composition of Sugars

...Lab: 3—Chemical Composition of Cells: Sugars Purpose of this lab: To learn about sugars and the test used to identify them. Introduction The organic macromolecules known as sugars are a type of carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are composed of monosaccharides, which are single, sugar unit monomers. Two sugar units linked together are known as a disaccharide. In this lab, we conducted tests on various substances with Bendict’s solution to determine which sample contained sugars. Benedict’s solution is a turquoise blue color and reacts with sugars after being heated in a boiling water bath, resulting in a color change. The color change varies with the concentration of sugar present, with strong positives indicating a high sugar concentration and weaker positives correlating with lesser concentrations of sugar. The color changes are as follows: orange-red (very high), orange (high), yellow-orange (moderate), yellow (low), green (very low), no change in color (no sugar present). Materials and Methods: --6 test tubes marked at 1cm and 3cm from the bottom --Benedict’s reagent --substances to be tested: water (control), glucose solution, onion juice, potato juice, starch suspension, and an unknown substance --hot plate with a beaker filled with water for a boiling water bath Each substance to be tested was filled in a separate test tube to the 1cm mark, with the exception of onion and potato juice, to which 5 drops of each were added to......

...Tips for preventing a cold, curing hiccups and insomnia Daree Walker Everest University Online Professor Pincumbe Composition 5002 August 24, 2014 Final Preventing a cold can be as easy as listening to your body, while curing hiccups and insomnia might require using some unusual techniques. In this essay you will find helpful hints to help you rid a cold or hiccups and how to get some sleep at night. My experiences are based on old wives tales and tricks I have used on myself and I have proof that some of these tricks might work for others. Because I have not suffered a cold in many years, I thought I must be doing something right so I would like to share with you my regiment. Also, I will share what I have learned about how to cure hiccups and what my son and I have done to cure our hiccups. These tips are based mostly on old wives tale and tips from the “Help From Heloise” books by Eloise Bowles. Now my tips for curing insomnia are based on my experiences with the insomniac women in my family, who struggle to sleep at night or find themselves awoken from sleep in the wee hours of the morning. However, I do not have this problem of insomnia. So I became curious of the fact that these ladies were not sleeping at night only because I could not understand what they were going through. Sleep to me is like milk, “it does the body good” and I ensure I get the right amount of sleep. My tips to my family were based on my own sleeping rituals or from what I have read...

...Buying a Car. Andrew DeMasellis Composition I Amber Minor 01 JUL 2015 When I think of buying a car I think it is one of the largest purchases you can make besides buying a house, plane, or yacht. There are many things to consider when buying a car. First you should consider a budget to buy a car. Are you going to buy it outright, lease, or are you going to finance? Each one of these requires a commitment of your finances and you need to make the best descion. Along with just the purchase price remember that there is maintenance included in what you need to budget. How much will tires cost, oil changes, and brakes? These are all good things to keep in mind. Next would be type, American or Foreign. Do you have a preference based on beliefs or is it something that is not important to you. Another thing to take into consideration is your needs. Do you need a tuck, van, or car? Will one work better for you than the other or is it just about looks or affordability? If you have a spouse and 4 kids is it really smart to by a 2 passenger vehicle? Other things to consider would be brand, color, and model. When I look at buying a car I also take into account “what am I buying it for”. What is the purpose of buying a car and how am I going to utilize it? Many question shall arise when encountering the situation. The best course of action is to determine the why factor. Are you buying it for work or school, do you need it to haul trailers. These are......

...variants of β-casein have a Histidine residue at this position. In the case of the variants containing Proline the enzymatic hydrolysis of the Ile66-Pro67 bond does not occur or occurs at a very low rate. The proportion of the different protein variants expressed in the milk, including those of βcasein, is related to their allele distributions in the various cattle breeds and populations. Changing selection targets in the last decades has resulted in changes in bovine breed EFSA Scientific Report (2009) 231, 2-107 Review of the potential health impact of β-casomorphins and related peptides composition in most European countries. While no detailed information is available, it is likely that these changes in breed composition have had an impact on milk composition, including protein variants. Taking into account the lack of detailed knowledge in milk protein variant composition and the diverse geographical origin of dairy products and ingredients across Europe, insufficient information is currently available on the exposure of individual consumers to different β-casein variants. It would appear that fresh raw/unprocessed milk obtained from healthy cows does not contain BCM7 or related peptides. By contrast, there is a substantial body of evidence indicating that different proteolytic systems involved in fermented milk or cheese manufacture can potentially hydrolyze β-casein to BCM7 or other BCMs and further degrade these peptides to shorter-chain peptides and even......

...Composition 1.1 Felipe Viveiros de Moura PAT 201 1. “Creaking Door” a. Where and when: This creaking door was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. b. Interest and influence: Having lived in this house for about 5 months, the creaking of my door every time I leave my room has become a sound that is part of my daily routine. After listening to all my recordings and selecting the top 8, this was one of the ones that, I believe, captured exactly what I was looking for. c. Techniques: Mic of the recorder was placed very close to the axis of rotation of the door d. Success in capturing sound: For a couple of tries, I could not capture the sound as loud as I intended to. After changing position, recording from inside the room and increasing the recording level, I was able to get the results I wanted. Background sound from my roommates was another difficulty but recording from inside the room helped solve the problem. 2. “Flush” e. Where and when: The flush of a toilet was recorded on Wednesday, 13th of January in my house located in South State Street. f. Interest and influence: Although this is a sound that everyone listens to every day, it does not receive the appreciation that it deserves due to its bad association. g. Techniques: recorder was placed perpendicular to the toilet centered in the drainage, to avoid the sound being too loud I made sure to place the recorder......

Led Composition

...Section 1: Claim: Observable factors that affect the composition of LEDs During our research of gallium arsenide phosphide (GaPxAs1-x), which is a semi-conducting material in the form of light emitting diodes, we observed how properties of the data collected directly correlated to the composition of the LED. The observed and measured properties we were able to notice and calculate during our research were wavelength, color, voltage, and temperature. Using a diffraction grating we first tested the different compositions for which color of light was emitted. Our data as can be seen in appendix 1, on pg. L93 table 1, shows that as the composition shifted from GaP0.40As0.60 to GaP1.00As0.00 the colors emitted, shifted from those associated with longer wavelengths to those of shorter wavelengths. (Red to green) We then set up a scanning spectrometer in order to measure the wavelengths, and as can be seen in our data in appendix 1, on pg. L94 table 2, as well as on the graph in appendix 2, we were able to measure the wavelength of each LED with varying composition. According to our data it can be said that greater bond length equals lower Eg, since lower Eg will result in longer wavelength. For example, GaP1.00As0.00 has the shortest wavelength and the shortest bond length, and as a result has the largest band gap energy. From the same data we can also conclude that greater bond strength equals greater Eg due to the fact that GaP1.00As0.00 has the highest bond strength. The......

Span of Control

...increases it to twenty or more. The concept of "span of control," also known as management ratio, refers to the number of subordinates controlled directly by a superior. It is a particularly important concept for small business owners to understand because small businesses often get into trouble when the founder ends up with too wide a span of control. Span of control is a topic taught in management schools and widely employed in large organizations like the military, government agencies, and educational institutions. "Yet few entrepreneurs know the term or are willing to admit any limit to the number of people they directly oversee," explained Mark Hendricks in an article for Entrepreneur magazine. When a small business owner's span of control becomes too large, it can limit the growth of his or her company. Even the best managers tend to lose their effectiveness when they spend all their time managing people and their issues and are unable to focus on long-term plans and competitive positioning for the business as a whole. The concept of span of control was developed in the United Kingdom in 1922 by Sir Ian Hamilton. It arose from the assumption that managers have finite amounts of time, energy, and attention to devote to their jobs. In studies of British military leaders, Hamilton found that they could not effectively control more than three to six people directly. These figures have been generally accepted as the "rule of thumb" for span of control ever since. More than......

...development of physical personality and representing the viable personality. It is also helpful in the development of confidence and attitude among the children. All of these factors have to be considered effectively at the childhood stage for the social and moral development of the children. In conclusion the human development process involves the psychological stages, which forms the basis for the changes in the life span of the human beings. The development cycle is required to be based on the educational and mental psychology, so that the growth perspective among the human being at the middle childhood stage can be sustained and managed effectively by the parents and teachers. Encouraged children commended by parents and teachers develop a feeling of competence and belief in their skills. Those who receive little or no encouragement from parents, teachers, or peers will doubt their ability to be successful. The growth of human beings should comply with the physical, cognitive, and personality aspects effectively for the development of life span in a proper way. References: Berkowitz, M.W. & Grych, J.H.

...Life Span Perspective Dennis L. Bentley Life Span Human Development- PSY/375 November 7, 2011 Professor Deborah Wilkerson M.A., ABD   What is the life span perspective of development? And what do heredity and environment have to do with a persons’ development? These are two questions that shall be answered by this paper along with a summary of the two theories of life span development. This paper will utilize the internet and the library of the University of Phoenix to assist in the answering of these questions. A very through and complete paper is not possible given the restraints, however every effort will be made to achieve the papers’ intention. To begin with the life span development perspective can be defined by Erickson eight stages or the different thoughts brought about by Behavioral, Cognitive, Epigenetic, or Sociocultural theorist. Whatever the school the basics are the same 1) we never stop learning, 2) development begins at birth, and 3), it does not end until death. As Santrock (1999) put it as "some aspects of development increase while others decrease". This is seen as plastic meaning that there is a certain elasticity that occurs in response to the different environmental demands that one might have during life. Like wise there are three domains that key in this perspective they are physical, cognitive, and social. In the physical, height, weight, and shape changes are the ingredients of what a person......
