The two dates that I chose to write about is my birthday, which is January 14th and my mother’s birthday which is February 4th. These dates are significant because there are the days that my mother and I were born; and also reminders, of the worst that was to come. My mother became ill around my birthday and was hospitalized on her birthday and died later that year. In this essay I will write about all the other significant events starting on January 14th, that happened on those same dates many, many years ago which include births, experiments, developments and discoveries. Starting the new year off, on January 14th 1847 Johannes, Orth was the founder of the Wurzburg School, which stressed difficult to understand, “imageless” nature of thought and conscious process. The basic thesis of the Wurzburg school consists in the postulation of the existence of special states of consciousness—“thoughts”—which cannot be reduced to the sensory content (Great Soviet encyclopedia, ed. A. M. Prokhorov (1979). Johannes Orth and his studies at the Wurzburg School were the initial starting point on the conscious process because Florence Rockwood Kluckholn born on January 14th 1905; believed that specific patterns of behavior can be that influenced by culture. Orth’s belief was that the thought of a conscious process; which is the relationship between the mind and the world within which it interacts intertwine with Florence idea in how someone’s behavior is influenced by culture. In 1982 and 1983 there were breaking developments on the Psychology scene; in 1982 Richard M. Schifrin started the publication the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory…...

What are the Main Differences Between Milestones and Tasks? In many project tools, the differences between milestones and tasks would appear only their duration (milestone has zero length). However they are two completely different things. A task is a defined unit of work with start and finish date and resource and can be measured as 0%-100% complete. A milestone defines a specific status – it cannot be 50%, it is either open or closed (100%). The difference can also be reflected in the semantics, of how the tasks and milestones are expressed. It is good idea to name tasks (activities) in the present tense, for example “Produce draft document” or “Deliver training”. Milestones are listed in the past tense, for example “Software tested.

Kropkowski University of Phoenix March 30, 2010 Milestone Three 2 Bel-Air Consulting, Recommended Improvement Areas - Milestone Three The economy in America continues its path of a slow recovery, yet changing ever so slightly. It really is nothing more than a question mark when referring to the prediction of where the economy is going in the future and economist continues to try to make that accurate prediction hoping for the best. Key areas within the economy to keep a watch out for are things such as the affects of foreign imports on produce in Kudler stores, and the expansion of Kudler stores in today’s economy. Kudler Fine Foods is aware of the dependence of produce across different parts of the world and understand there are certain factors they cannot control; one of them is the weather. Kudler has the reputation of having nothing but the best when it comes to top quality organic foods, and is cognizant of the importance weather plays in the availability and pricing of produce Kudler carries in all of its stores. A country that has the optimal weather conditions for growing a wide range of produce is Mexico. Mexico is one of Kudler’s largest imports of produce items supplying products such as avocados, onions, lemons and limes and sunflower seeds. Mexico also comes in the top five with......

Developmental Milestones

...understand how and why people— all kinds of people, everywhere, of every age—change over time. This definition has three crucial elements: science, people, and change” (2012). The science in development is known as multidisciplinary; which means from scientists from many academic disciplines biology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics all contribute to our understanding of human development (Berger, 2012). Children have a set of universal developmental milestones that they will all reach upon a certain time. When children are meeting their developmental milestones there are factors that can come into play that can cause the milestones to vary such as cultural, biological, and environmental. Different cultures have different expectations for their children that can affect their developmental milestones. A milestone that is expected from a specific culture is known as cultural milestone. For instance the Chinese culture used to bind young girls feet, which would hinder their bone development and could also affect the way that they walked (Karasik, Adolph, Tamis-LeMonda, Bornstein, 2010). Cultural milestones can affect the child from reaching or progressing a universal milestone. Another way that development can vary is due to biology or the genetics that are passed down. The interaction of genes from the mother and genes from the father affects the embryo’s growth in many ways (Berger, 2012). Genetics can vary many different developmental stages starting......

...[pic] MILESTONE 1 – SCOPE DEFINITION Synopsis T he purpose of the preliminary investigation phase is threefold. First, it answers the question, “Is this project worth looking at?” To answer this question, this phase must define the scope of the project and the perceived problems, opportunities, and directives that triggered the project. In this milestone you will prepare a Request for System Services, which is the trigger for the Preliminary Investigation Phase. Also, you will use fact-finding techniques to extract and analyze information from an interview to determine project scope, level of management commitment, and project feasibility for the Client Technology Tracking System. With these facts and facts obtained from the Case Background, you will have the necessary information to complete the Problem Statement Matrix and, if assigned, construct the Project Feasibility Assessment Report. Objectives After completing this milestone, you should be able to: Complete a Request for System Services form, which triggers the preliminary investigation phase.

Note that this solution includes flows from all major events from the use-case (event/response) matrix other than pure maintenance events. Ensure that the students label the data flows and entities correctly. Also remember that data flows are not allowed between entities. [pic] Activity 2 – Event Decomposition Diagram O ften the subsystem division is somewhat arbitrary. For CTTS the division is fairly obvious since part of the system will be Internet-accessible and part will not. Students, however, may come up with and be able to justify different divisions. The Enter New Client event could be placed in either subsystem; presumably the two subsystems will share data so that a client entered in one will be available in the other.

...Sociological Portrait: Milestone 2 Brittany Stenger Southern New Hampshire University Introduction to Sociology Dr. Cheryl Avant Sociological Portrail: Milestone 2 Future preparation and economic functions are just two functions of education. We all know that schools are composed of teaching kids to read and write but there are other things that are needed in order for schools to function properly. In my middle school and high school I remember these playing a huge role. When kids are attending school they aren't really looking into the aspects of the way the school functions outside of teachers and just going to class. My school was a little different then most public schools. I always remember it being called the public school that wanted to be a private school. It was small and had a very good success rate. My school helped students a lot in preparing for college. We had a ton of Advanced Placement(AP) classes and opportunities to take outside classes at the local community colleges. We also had multiple meetings with our counselors and also had SAT prep courses available. We also had a program called Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). This was a program where some kids went to gain credentialism. Credentialism is the requirement of certain specific degrees for a particular job (Manza et al., 2013). BOCES was an alternative school where some kids went to learn a trade. They offered things like heavy equipment, early......

...Cognitive Psychology Definition Paper Jennifer Flynn PSY/360 October 27, 2014 Terry Blackmon Cognitive Psychology Definition Paper Cognitive psychology is the study among psychology that discovers the internal mental processes by encompassing learning, memory, problem solving, perception, thought or language (Galotti, 2014). While still relatively new comparatively as a formal branch of psychology, its roots extend back to Descartes who sought a way to explain how the mind worked, proposing the analogy of a “hydraulic system of nerve function” (Willingham, 2007, p. 26) after he observed animated statues in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. It has been the relentless pursuit of not only how did the mind work but also what exactly constituted the mind that eventually led the foundations of cognitive theory. As psychologists examined how mental processes produced behavior, it was evident a different approach would be needed. The school of thought that arises from tactic is called Cognitivism and is also interested in how people mentally represent information processing (Galotti, 2014). According to ScienceDaily (2014), Wilhelm Wundt, the Gestalt psychology of Max Wertheimer, Wolfgang Kohler and Kurt Koffka, and Jean Piaget was the foundations in this work. However, they presented the theory or segments that articulate children’s cognitive development and the two styles that cognitive psychologist use to realize, detect, and solve problems. These two approaches are......

Developmental Milestones

...Milestone One: Rule-oriented Games (Physical Domain) Section A: Knowledge of the Developmental Milestones During middle childhood, children’s play undergoes several changes, the most obvious of which is children engage in games with rules. These rule-oriented games include informally organized games as well as formally organized sports, such as little league, club or intramural sports. The former category may be variants on popular sports games, well-known childhood games such as red rover, and invented games that children develop on their own. The principal commonality is that these games have a set of rules and often have multiple roles for players. While informal outdoor play allows children to develop rules and try out multiple scenarios, formal, organized sports allows children to learn rules, appreciate their personal skills, and develop their position on a team. Both types of rule-oriented games are important for developing social competencies and enhanced cognitive capabilities. This milestone develops as children begin to develop more improved motor coordination, a better capacity for information processing, and a heightened social maturity (Berk, 2007, p. 294). The physical skills at play in rule-oriented games include flexibility, balance, agility, and force, reflective of increased muscle strength. All four of these are basic motor capacities which become more refined with the gross motor development of middle childhood. Additionally, children’s enhanced......

Milestone 1

...isolation and depression or general unhappiness. There are also behavior symptoms of stress. These symptoms are eating more or less, sleeping too much or too little, isolating from others, procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities, using alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to relax, and nervous habits such as nail biting. Some cognitive symptoms are memory loss problems, inability to concentrate, poor judgment, seeing only then negative, anxious or racing thoughts, and constant worrying. These are the many symptoms of having stress. There are things that can also influence a person’s stress tolerance level. “In stressful conditions, a person's ability to do the task appropriately with minimal anxiety level is known as stress tolerance” ( Psychology 1 ). Every person needs people to support them and what they do, such as friends and family. A person’s sense of control may be easier in their stride if they have confidence in their self and others have confidence in them as well. Having a good outlook and attitude can help because optimistic people are often more stress-hardy and can take more stress than others. A person’s ability to deal with their emotions in a short and effective way also contributes to their stress tolerance level. Knowledge and preparation helps people know more about a stressful situation that they may be in or have caused. Many of these things may help lower, or raise stress tolerance level. This essay shows stress and the many things that......

...opinion environmental psychology is the foundation for studying how the environment plays a role in our cognitive and psychological process. This study of psychology takes in to account the idea that setting, culture, and guidance all play a pivotal role in the developing us in to the individuals that we will eventually become. It also helps us change the way we think about the world we live in and how it affects us on a daily basis. A major milestone for the study of environmental psychology is through the work of Harold Proshansky. “Harold Proshansky is, for many, considered to be one of the founding fathers of environmental psychology. He was the first to codify many of the tenets involved in the discipline, and also among the first to put forth the hypothesis that environment directly influences behavior in a predictable way.” ("Environmental Psychology", 2015) Through his work Proshansky was able to focus the idea of environmental psychology and its study and helping it stay focused on helping the people that are directly affected by its experiments and theories. Proshansky completely believed that to truly understand how the environment affects people must be made through observation of them in a real life setting. This type of study in my honest opinion is the best because it does not water down the results of the experiment, people are most familiar in the things they know so they will act in a state of comfort.
