Shooting in the Dark

The article “Shooting in the Dark” is about the connection between violent crimes and video game use. Social scientist have been studying the effects of media violence and video game violence since the 1950’s to the 1980’s. Research has shown that boys are more likely to play violent video games than girls. Research has also shown that playing violent video games does stir up hostile urges and aggression in the short term and that younger kids that develop a gaming habit (over a one to two year period) can be slightly more aggressive. It has not yet been determined whether or not playing video games for a period longer than two years can lead to acts of violent crime. Christopher Barlett, a psychologist at Iowa State University, conducted a study in which he had 47 students play “Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance” for 15 minutes and had another group of students play a nonviolent video game. The results of the study showed that students that played “Mortal Kombat” were more aggressive than the group of students that played a nonviolent video game. Similar studies done have shown the same results. Although studies have shown that video games do increase aggression, it is not the only factor that causes people to commit violent crimes; there are many factors that come into play such as psychological disorders, feeling socially isolated, being bullied, etc. Not everyone agrees with the research findings though. Some people believe that children who already show…...

...Analytical Response to Male Pregnancy Male Pregnancy by Dick Teresi and Kathleen McAuliffe support that the technology and the demand for male pregnancy will be possible in the future. They specifically state that, "Someday a man will have a baby". They have written this article in an attempt to show why they believe this will one day become accepted and widely practiced. However, I disagree with Teresi and McAuliffe. I feel male pregnancy will never be freely practiced or accepted by any means. Teresi and McAuliffe start out their article by explaining what their general idea is for male pregnancy to occur. They state, "What we're talking about is implanting an embryo into a man's abdominal cavity, where the fetus would take nourishment, grow to term, and be delivered by an operation similar to a cesarean section. Already, this idea seems illogical to me. As a result of a man being pregnant, there must be a cesarean section to remove the baby. Even for women, this is a risk doctors prefer to avoid if possible. It puts the mother at a much greater risk of inj... ... middle of paper ... ...lt Teresi and McAuliffe's arguments for pursuing the technology of male pregnancies is not strong enough to actually do further research in the area. I feel that females are biologically established for birth where men's bodies naturally can not give birth. It seems illogical to try to change a system that has worked so well for so many years. If there is a technology......

Analytical Framework

...analytical An analytical framework for evaluating e-commerce business models and strategies Chung-Shing Lee The author Chung-Shing Lee is Director of Electronic Commerce Resource Center and an Assistant Professor of Information Systems and Technology Management in the School of Business at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma, Washington, USA. Keywords Internet, Economy, Innovation, Strategy Abstract Electronic commerce or business is more than just another way to sustain or enhance existing business practices. Rather, e-commerce is a paradigm shift. It is a ``disruptive’’ innovation that is radically changing the traditional way of doing business. The industry is moving so fast because it operates under totally different principles and work rules in the digital economy. A general rule in e-commerce is that there is no simple prescription and almost no such thing as an established business or revenue model for companies even within the same industry. Under such conditions, an analytical framework is needed to assist e-commerce planners and strategic managers in assessing the critical success factors when formulating e-commerce business models and strategies. This research develops an analytical framework based on the theories of transaction costs and switching costs. Both demand-side and supply-side economies of scale and scope are also applied to the development of this framework. In addition, e-commerce revenue models and strategies are also discussed. Based on the......

...process a business model used by most firms in identifying problems facing them will help. However, a clearly defined statement will provide a better platform on how to use this model DECIDE Process. From the text, I could infer that lack of supply was a major constraint to their operations. The South American artifacts aren’t always easy to find and the African source was short circuited because of political unrest. Apart from the snag posed by supply, the firm does not enjoy complete monopoly of the trade as other companies now send out their own buyers to deal directly with some of the Hopi, Navajo, and African sources. Amateur or fly-by- night competitors are further aggravating the problems.

Analytical Essay

...Analytical Essay of Maurice Pervin “He seemed to know the presence of objects before he touched them. It was a pleasure to him to rock thus through a world of things, carried on the flood in a sort of blood prescience. He did not think much or trouble much. So long as he kept this sheer immediacy of blood-contact with the substantial world he was happy, he wanted no intervention of visual consciousness.” (pg.8) Had the character Maurice Pervin not been blinded, perhaps stricken with another form of handicap such as deafness, this blood prescience would not have been captured as effectively as is the case of him not having sight. Without being ‘bothered by a great many things’ that the ability of sight allows a human being, Maurice was able to tap into a greater sense of awareness to the things he encountered. He has been granted a new awareness of how to perceive his atmosphere, finding serenity and tranquility of immediate contact in darkness. His blindness is in fact his greatest strength never a weakness, almost supernatural as if to be compared to Superman who possesses superhuman strength. In addition to other attributes that make up Maurice Pervin such as being over-sensitive, passionate, and having feelings that are quick and acute, blindness fits perfectly within this character’s make up. As if to see things for what they truly are on an emotional level was a gift that he already possessed only heightened by his inability to now see with his eyes. D.H. Lawrence......

Analytical Report

...Jarrod Thompson 4 March 2014 A Battle for Freedom Brief Summary Two of the most debated topics in the U.S. today are those of gay rights and religious freedom. Recently, these two issues clashed head-to-head in the form of a Senate bill in the state of Arizona. This bill would have protected business owners exercising their religious freedom in refusing service to others. The following will describe the facts involving the bill and offer recommendations on why its veto was an adverse decision. Statement of Facts Senate Bill 1062 (SB 1062) was introduced in early 2014 by Senator Steve Yarbrough as a means to update Arizona’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). These updates are meant to clarify the protection that individuals would have in exercising their religious freedom. These protections include using religious freedom in conducting business and in dealing with other private citizens with regards to court cases. Advocates of the bill have cited a case from the New Mexico Supreme Court as a critical need for these changes. In that case, Elane Photography v. Willock, the Court ruled that the state’s RFRA did not apply to the enforcement of a state law. The Center for Arizona Policy, one of the bill’s major proponents, seeks to eliminate the enforcement of state laws that violate religious liberty. The group claims that SB 1062 clarifies and strengthens existing laws protecting religious freedom. The bill gained national recognition due to the...

Analytical Chemistry

...Ass Analytical chemistry What is Qualitative Analysis? Qualitative analysis is the aspect of analytical chemistry dealing with the identification of elements or compounds in an unknown substance. Very simply put, it answers the question "What is in this sample?" and usually does so with yes/no question. What is Quantitative Analysis? Quantitative chemical analysis is the aspect of analytical chemistry dealing with determining the quantity of a particular chemical is in a substance. In short, it attempts to answer questions involving "How much?" Accuracy: Accuracy refers to the agreement between experimental data and a known value. You can think of it in terms of a bull’s eye in which the target is hit close to the center, yet the marks in the target aren't necessarily close to each other. Accuracy is defined as, "The ability of a measurement to match the actual value of the quantity being measured". If in reality it is 34.0 F outside and a temperature sensor reads 34.0 F, then than sensor is accurate. Precision Precision refers to how well experimental values agree with each other. If you hit a bull’s-eye precisely, then you are able to hit the same spot on the target each time, even though that spot may be distant from the center. Precision is defined as, "(1) The ability of a measurement to be consistently reproduced" and "(2) The number of significant digits to which a value has been reliably measured". If on several tests the temperature......

...conversation between the two of us at times. Anyone who knows either of us knows that if you’re hanging out with the two us you’re in for a day filled with laughs and acts of randomness. I have known Andrew for eight years now and I can confidently say he is one of a kind. He is a completely unpredictable person and I think that’s why I am so close with him. When thinking of the similarities between Andrew and myself, I think the fact that we enjoy each other’s company so much makes us as close as we are. We are two individuals, although we relate on many things, we aren’t the same person and have different views and thoughts on many subjects. When I got together with Andrew recently and began discussing family, the first topic of my Analytical Paper, Andrew replied, “I don’t have a family”. Now - 1 - before he gets the poor and abused label, this is the type of thing Andrew says on a daily basis. He’s not the type of kid to sit down and have a serious conversation with you right away. If you want to hear what he has to say, it takes a little bit of dragging it out of him sometimes. However other times you can’t get him to be quiet. The fact was that I already knew about his views on family. “Responsibility, connection, commitment” Andrew hasn’t shown these qualities for eight years. When it comes to his family life, I’m embarrassed at times. If I ever talked to my mother or father the way Andrew does I might end up getting a backhand to the face.......

Remember that you work for a company (real or hypothetical) and you’re researching a product or service that needs updating/replacing so that you can do your job more effectively. This is not a product or service that you or the company wants to sell or offer. Research Strategy (Sources and Methods of Data Collection) – List how you will gather research, from what types of sources and sites, etc. Preliminary Outline – Remember this is an Indirect Style Analytical Report that we’re organizing by Criteria, so look at Ch. 13, 14 and 15 to help you. On p. 394, the Yardstick Approach is discussed and organizing by the product/service or the criteria is explained. I prefer this to be organized by criterion because the report usually reads more smoothly this way, but will be okay with you organizing it by product/service instead. You will not be providing ANY details because you shouldn’t have researched anything yet or drawn any conclusions/recommendations. Just list the 3 product names and list the 3 (or more) criteria you have chosen as shown below (and similar to p. 394 outline – look at section IV and notice how the numbered items are the SAME for each of the lettered parts).
