There is a time and place is what we are taught to think before we take action. If we are unable to do this successfully, we are thought to be a black sheep. I recognize this as I walk through the door of a 24-hour Starbucks during the middle of the night. Strangers are staying close to those who are familiar and keep to themselves, tinting a cool summer night with an uncomfortable silence similar to a library. Eyes wander; following the slightest movements of newcomers. When there is nothing to see, attention is moved elsewhere to something more unusual like the prostitute that just came in. She became pinned down by stares from those who recognized what she is. More than the standard three second stares and move on, bodies contort from where they sit. Eyebrows are raised; showing judgment of the subject that stands before them. Thoughts are running wild,” Wow so strange… I thought that the only place to see prostitutes are at random street corners… Gross… Doesn’t she know she would stand out at a place like this?... Poor thing…” Observing this, I realize that we are all so used to our own reality that, those who differ are considered unusual.
She stands out against the crowd wearing all black. The cozy, romantic, lighting makes her appear as a slim silhouette among all of the random patterns and colors that surrounds her. Her face reveals an age varying from the mid to late forties, although, her body expresses an age greater than her own. The white contrasting to the black holes in her teeth along with her long brittle hair makes the deterioration of her being more apparent. The man she was with was foreign from the typical people she would befriend. He was in his seventies. Better clothed, wearing light colors. His gold jewelry expressed that he was living better than she was. He behaves as if they are not together until minutes later;…...

Normal Accidents Charles Perrow

...Normal Accident at Three Mile Island Charles Perrow A ccidents will happen, including ones in nuclear plants. But by and large, we believe accidents can be prevented through better training, equipment, or design, or their effects can be localized and minimized through safety systems. The accident at Three Mile Island (TMI) is being assessed in this fashion. The industry started a new training program, the equipment at the Babcock and Wilcox plants is being improved, the design has been modified, the utility chastised--all useful, if minor, steps. Furthermore, to nuclear proponents, such as Edward Teller, the accident proved that the effects can be localized and minimized. It is safe. No one has died as a direct result of radiation injuries in all the years of commercial nuclear plant operation. But the accident at TMI was not a preventable one, and the amount of radiation vented into the atmosphere could easily have been much larger, and the core might have melted, rather than just being damaged. TMI was a "normal accident"; these are bound to occur at some plant at some time, and bound to occur again, even in the best of plants. It was preceded by at least sixteen other serious accidents or near accidents in the short life of nuclear energy in the United States, and we should expect about sixteen more in the next five years of operation--that is, in industry time, the next four hundred years of operation of the plants existing now and scheduled to come on stream.......

Body Maintenance of Normal Ph

...2. Body Maintenance Of Normal pH In order to maintain a proper pH in the bodily fluids, and so that acidosis or alkalosis will not manifest, three major physiological control systems exist within the body. The first mechanism involves a buffer system for the hydrogen ion fluctuations. All bodily fluids are supplied with acid-base buffers which combine with any acid or alkaline substance and prevent excessive change in the hydrogen ion concentration. Another mechanism the body uses to maintain normal pH is within the respiratory system. When the hydrogen ion concentration (H + ) changes measurably, the respiratory system is immediately stimulated to alter the rate of pulminary ventilation. This brings about a change in the quantity of carbon dioxide (CO2) within the system. High levels of carbon dioxide in the system, as created when holding the breath or due to physiological impairments of respiration, increase the acidity of the bloodstream. Any disease that interferes with normal breathing, such as emphysema or asthma, will impede the release of CO2 from the lungs and, subsequently, this CO2 will combine with water to form carbonic acid. This increases the concentration of hydrogen ions, and thus the acidity of the blood is simultaneously increased. The last of the three major physiological control systems of the body to maintain normal pH involves the kidneys. When the (H + ) (hydrogen concentration) deviates from a normal value, the kidneys excrete either an acid or......

Being Normal

...After learning about the difference between place and space, I felt pretty arrogant about claiming this man’s place as just being a space of supply and demand. All the topics I discussed have opened my eyes to higher learning and understanding. Even I assume too much of society and infer incorrectly on the way it appears to be running. I was brought up with the same limited assumptions most people live with but, I now believe these assumptions and limitations must be broken. Our concepts of normality and factual ideology need to be questioned. I’m glad I took this class because I surprisingly learned more than I thought and am able to employ multiple perspectives when now analyzing an issue or topic. Nothing is universal, natural, or normal. There are multiple factors that go into something that has been created. I learned instead of assuming why something is the way it is, you should examine how and why it became present in the first place by being unbiased and accepting of differences. Never assume its right, prove that it’s right....

Identify the properties of a normal distribution. Find the area under the standard normal distribution, given various z values. Find probabilities for a normally distributed variable by transforming it into a standard normal variable. Find specific data values for given percentages, using the standard normal distribution. Use the central limit theorem to solve problems involving sample means for large samples. Use the normal approximation to compute probabilities for a binomial variable. 6–2 Applications of the Normal Distribution 6–3 The Central Limit Theorem 6–4 The Normal Approximation to the Binomial Distribution Summary 6–1 300 Chapter 6 The Normal Distribution Statistics Today What Is Normal? Medical researchers have determined so-called normal intervals for a person’s blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, and the like. For example, the normal range of systolic blood pressure is 110 to 140. The normal interval for a person’s triglycerides is from 30 to 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). By measuring these variables, a physician can determine if a patient’s vital statistics are within the normal interval or if some type of treatment is needed to correct a condition and avoid future illnesses. The question then is,...

...Domicus Perdue PSY/202 Foundations of Psychology Normal or Abnormal Sept. 11, 2013 Kristal Chambers, Faculty Normal behavior is that what is noticed by society as doing things that agrees with the social norm. This means that we go to work we take care of our kids, our kids go to school. One could take normal as being free from disease or not being in a mental institution. Normal is everything that people are supposed to think, feel and what is known as common or usual. There are billions of people in the world 90% act a certain way this I would consider normal. The other 10 % is all the abnormal, sick twisted individuals that like to steal, fight and kill for no apparent reason. There are also those that have cancer or anything abnormal like the flu or AIDS. Abnormality is a deviation from what is considered ideal. It is also an alternative approach, which considers behavior abnormal, if it deviates enough from some kind of ideal or cultural standard. This deviation in accordance with what society what’s from everyone as normal sometimes disagrees as to what is ideal or adequate. Abnormality is also a sense of personal discomfort as I mention before with different types of medical symptoms. Additionally a more useful definition concentrates on the psychological consequences of the behavior of any individual. In our book this behavior is considered abnormal if it produces a sense of personal distress or anxiety, or guilt in an individual. If we say that abnormal......

Normal Versus Abnormal

...Sexual activity is described to be any sexual activities associated with sexual intercourse. However, sexual activity is often categorized as either normal or perverted. Two analytic philosophers, Thomas Nagel and Alan Goldman, described their views on natural sexual activity and sexual desire versus abnormal sex and sexual desire. Thomas Nagel, who is a professor of philosophy and law, borrows his ideas relating sexual desire from the well-known French philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre. Nagel is able to give human beings his insight of who we are, specifically our sexual desires. There are three general conditions that an accurate account would have to meet relating perversion. The first one states, “If X is a sexual perversion, X must be a desire or practice that is somehow unnatural.” This first condition assumes that X is something abnormal, which results in perverse activities. The second condition states, “certain conditions will be perversions if anything is, such as shoe fetishism, bestiality, and sadism; other practices, such as unadorned sexual intercourse, will not be; about still others there is controversy” (34). This one states that having sex with an animal or inanimate objects will be considered perverse, whereas plain sex will be considered as normal sexual activity. The last condition states, “if there are perversions, they will be unnatural inclinations rather than just unnatural practices adopted not from inclination but for other reasons” (34). This one......

Normal vs Impaired

...Impaired vision and touch had a longer average time than normal vision and touch. In the Aging and Development Activity, the average time for normal vision was less than the average time for impaired vision. The average time for normal vision for the students was 14.83 seconds. The average time for impaired vision was 15.72 seconds. In the second part, the average time for normal touch was also less than the average time for impaired touch. The average time for normal touch was 8.72 seconds. The average time for impaired touch increased to 17.21 seconds. Among vision and touch, there was a greater difference between normal and impaired touch than normal and impaired vision. This could be because we are more sensitive to touch than we are to vision. The frosted glass represents vision at an older age. As humans age, their vision tends to worsen and they can see less clearly. The rubber gloves represent how our grip will not be as strong or accurate as we age. We will lose strength and will not be able to hold things with the same firm hold with our hands as we will become more weak and fragile. I believe the frosted glass was an effective simulation of vision at an older age. We will see less clearly and our vision will not be sharp; it will be weak. Therefore, at an older age, it is obvious that it will take more time to complete a task at an older age due to unclear vision. The rubber gloves also simulated aging because it impaired the ability to touch and......

The Normal Age of Marriage

...The Normal Age of Marriage Name: Noor Mohsen ID: 1220077 Course Code: ENGL 1301 Rhetoric and Composition Section 9 Compare and Contrast The Normal Age of Marriage Marriage is not for fun like how they see in movies. In marriage they will go through laughs and tears, ups and downs, and stress and relief because it is a huge responsibility. The wife is the source of the house, and she is the one who should alter this place to a home. If she can not make it, she is not capable yet to get married. Girls should get married when they reach the age of twenty five, because it is the most suitable age for marriage. It is a mistake to let them get married at a young age, because they will not be mature and responsible yet, got no enough education, and has no much experience. Young girls always imagine a fantasy marriage, and that it is their happy world. Marriage is full of responsibilities, and it needs mature people who are able to focus on the chief things and be able to handle it. First, when a young girl gets married, she will not be able to take the responsibility. She is used to handle simple tasks at her home. Unlike the elder girl, she can handle many things in the same time, with a mature mind and a wide open heart. She knows how to be patient and think wisely. A young girl will be still learning everything. On the other hand the elder girl will be able to be a good house wife and a great mother. Sure in marriage a lot of problems will come from......

My Aspect on Being "Normal"

...Normality We’re 7 million people sharing the earth. But how many are considered “normal”? When are people considered abnormal? Can a little thing as being born with a finger less, make you the black sheep in the classroom? Is it even possible to be normal? Today we’re 7 million people on the earth. Some have different skin colours, some are shorter and weaker than others and some a simply smarter. But none of these things matters in the real life. For example let’s say you’re very weak and not as high as the other boys in the classroom, but you are very smart. In the future, you would have a brilliant job. And some girls actually prefer smart boys over a strong and stupid one. But then again, some people say if you’re born with a noticeable disability, you would be considered abnormal. But I can prove that wrong. Let’s say that you’re on an institution for people who have a mental disability. You would be considered normal amongst those people. But if you’re in a regular class room they would consider you the abnormal one. And to prove it, let’s say that you’re a regular boy. You went over to visit a friend on the institution for people who have a mental disability. At the institution you would be the considered abnormal. Can any people actually be considered abnormal? Well that depends on how wide you think of the word “normal”. The truth is, we all live on the same earth, and even tho some have different skin colour, we all originate from the same race. Therefore you...

Dissociation Is Normal

...Expository Writing 101: Section EA Professor Morrone Dissociation is Normal Dissociation is when an individual mentally spaces out in order to not remember or remove themselves from a situation. The dissociation can be triggered by anything at any point in time and is often related to a traumatic experience. Individuals who dissociate intensely usually do not know that they are dissociating, and many who do seek psychiatric help. Anyone can dissociate and in her essay “When I Woke Up Tuesday Morning, It was Friday,” Martha Stout, a psychologist, speaks about her successful, ordinary, normal patients who dissociate due to traumatic experiences. Society perceives individuals who seek psychiatric assistance to be “abnormal,” but Stout challenges this concept by illustrating how her patients defy this generalization. Therapy is not just for “insane” individuals because Stout’s patients are intellectual individuals who carry through conventional lifestyles. Society labels individuals who acquire psychiatric help as irregular simply because the individuals seek the therapy. Seeking therapeutic help is the first step towards fixing personal problems that cannot be fought alone. Everyone has issues that are difficult to face on their own; in Stout’s patients’ cases, the issues are severe episodes of dissociation that hinder their everyday routines. One patient in particular, named Julia, is a successful producer of documentary films. As a child,......
