  • Classical Conditioning
    964 words
    Although hunger and starvation are prevalent in our nation, Americans have turned their backs to this problem. We have turned our backs because we have been conditioned and desensitized by the media, to the issue of hunger. Classical conditioning is 'the process by which a stimulus acquires the capacity to elicit a response through association with a stimulus that already elicits a similar or related response.

    2,616 words
    The Dark Conspiracy Behind The CIA During the early 1950's and into the mid 1960's there were a number of unusual activities involving the CIA, The Canadian Government, and the American Government.

  • Experiment
    405 words
    Miss Everetts Boys My reaction to Miss Everetts Boys is one of disgust and utter disbelief. I feel that the government is responsible for the colored men who lost their lives to syphilis during the time of the Tuskegee experiments located within Tuskegee, Alabama. I also feel that yet again this is an example of prejudice against blacks during the middle part to last half of the century. At first the government wanted to cure the Syphilis epidemic that plagued over 80% of the black male populati...
  • Time Through Movement In Space
    2,558 words
    To What Extent Does Our Understanding Of Space Depend On The Way We Think Of Time 'Space and time are basic categories of human existence' (Harvey, 1989: 201). They are such familiar concepts to human beings that there is a temptation to dismiss them as unimportant. Time is used everyday - ordered into minutes, hours, days, even millenia - while space is treated as a fact of nature, '... an objective attribute of things which can be measured and thus pinned down' (Harvey, 1989: 203). However, th...
  • Wage Discrimination
    386 words
    The American Association of University Women (AAUW) has long fought to end wage discrimination. Despite the Equal Pay Act and many improvements in women's economic status over the past 40 years, wage discrimination still persists. AAUW continues to believe that pay equity-economic equity-is a simple matter of justice and strongly supports initiatives that seek to close the persistent and sizable wage gaps between men and women. The effects of pay inequity reach far. According to a 1999 study by ...
  • Reaction Times To Mental Rotations Of Images
    1,150 words
    Abstract The idea of mental imagery has always been a controversial subject in the field of psychology. Many psychologists have argued that such a concept is impossible to measure because it can not be directly observed. Though they are right about this, it is not impossible to measure how quickly mental rotations of images are processed in our brains. Subjects in this experiment were presented two shapes simultaneously, via computer screen, and asked to make judgement, as quickly as possible, a...

    Lister Jones 145-58-3641 Essay 1 Throughout my lifetime I have listened to people reflect back on their college experiences and explain how college is supposed to be "the best experience of your life". The summer after my senior year I use to try and imagine what my first semester was going to be like based on what I had heard people talk about in the past. After my first semester at NC State I realized that I couldn't fully understand what college was like until I experienced it for myself. My ...

  • Subsequent Experiments Concerning Visual Search Tasks
    2,411 words
    ... Theories of Visual Search standard theory of visual search tasks assumes that when a person searches for a target in an array of other items, memory is used in locating the target. The following analysis of three articles shows that there is both strong support for this highly respected theory and evidence that this theory may have some flaws in reasoning. In the article 'Features and Objects in Visual Processing,' Anne Treisman states that there are two theoretical levels of visual processi...
  • Later Titled Count Rumford
    1,251 words
    Count Rumford, for whom the Rumford fireplace is named, was born Benjamin Thompson in Woburn, Massachusetts in 1753 and, because he was a loyalist, he left (abruptly) with the British in 1776. He spent much of his life as an employee of the Bavarian government where he received his title, "Count of the Holy Roman Empire".

  • Pineapple Juice On The Gelatin
    2,882 words
    Pineapple Lab Introduction - For some strange reason, gelatin and fresh pineapple do not get along. When juice of the fresh pineapple, unchanged from its natural form, comes into contact with the gelatin, it changes the gelatin from a solid into a liquid that cannot be reformed into gelatin. A very interesting occurrence in life, and we want to why this is. We have a hypothesis, and it is that the juice from the pineapple contains enzymes, which break down protein. So to prove this we have to do...
  • Greater Surface Area For The Acid
    447 words
    An Experiment To Investigate If Particle Size Affects The Amount Of Carbon Dioxide Produced Hypothesis I think that the smaller limestone chips will produce the greater amount of carbon dioxide than the larger chips as there will be a greater surface area for the acid to react upon. This is because the greater the surface area the higher the amount of collisions between limestone and acid particles. Therefore the smaller chips will lose a greater mass. The formula for this reaction is Marble + H...
  • Elastic Bands The Cart Travels
    1,301 words
    Planning Introduction For this piece of coursework I have been set a task to find what factors effect the distance a wooden block travels when projected over a surface. Each time I do this I have been asked to change a different variable. There was a wealth of different variables I could have chosen but for this particular experiment I have decided that I will change the weight of the block each time I fire it. This will involve firing the cart a certain number of times but each time adding some...
