He found that the results of some of his calculations were incorrect. He cross checked some of the same calculations on a 486 CPU and the results turned out to be different. Then Tim Coe of Vitesse Semiconductors also discovered some inconsistencies. Testing began to be done on whether or not the microprocessor was flawed. Using spreadsheet software, he was able to take the number, multiply it by another number and then divide it by the same number.
Ans: The experimental groups mean posttest depression scores (mean 13.36) was 0.64 points lower than its baseline mean score (mean 14.00). This was not an expected finding because it was not hypothesized that after the completion of the empowerment program, the experimental group’s depression skills would not improve. This finding indicates that the empowerment intervention has a negative impact on the depression of ESRD patients. 4. Compare the mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the control group.
Jordan Brooks Mr. Autry English II January 29, 2011 Supreme Individualist Henry David Thoreau declares himself a supreme individualist. He is the greatest of his time in that regard. B.F. Skinner, a psychologist, agrees with Thoreau about the necessity to be an individual, but he claims community is ultimately more important. Being an individual can be rather contradictory, meaning it is both harmless and harmful at the same time. Today many individualists use Thoreau's ideas and have perfected them.
The results were that the chance of developing a cold correlated with stress index scores. The life event lowered the immune function and increased vulnerability to the virus. However there were several problems with this research, one of which was that it was an indirect study- there was no direct measure of the immune system for example no blood test or medical test was taken as evidence. Consequently we cannot determine how far the participant’s immune system was affected in relation to the stress. Another key problem was that there were was no direct manipulation of the independent variable so the study doesn’t tell us which element of the stress index is most important and related to the decrease in immune function.
And according to our data, our actual yield is 0.5g CaCO3. Thus, our percent yield is 73.5%. Our percent yield was close to 100%, but not very close. I believe the error lies in human error, as well as instrumentation sensitivity. Our scale only measures to grams accurately, and could have not accurately represented the .68g of CaCO3, or we could have lost the solid precipitate in the process of the experiment.
Shani Hunter Ethics 04-05-10 What would you do? It is not enough to share positive results on actionable higher risks with research participants Genetic testing usually uncovers many more cases of good news, such as absence of genetic abnormalities. If both the elevated as well as the normal risks of disease were communicated to all research participants, most of the results that are divulged to research subjects would be about non-elevated risks—a relief, or at least a cause not to worry. Ethically, this approach may be easier to defend or advocate instead of communication limited to the high-risk findings. When a person decides to become a research participant, they are putting their health into the researches hands.
The evidence that he provides does reflect his overall statements or arguments. His argument is extremely convincing and even being part of the generation that he is ‘bashing or putting down’ it is hard to disagree with; he makes an eye opening argument that someone from the millennial generation might not have realized before. His bluntness and use of many outside individual opinions makes the article even more persuasive where his word choice is leaning towards a distinct side of opinion. I do believe that the evidence can be looked at a different way. For instance, who is to say that this new approach to the workforce by this generation is so necessarily a bad thing?
Kenan Besirevic 1984 To begin, technology is both, a simple and complex advances that benefit humanity in one way, and hurt us in the other. I, on the other hand strongly feel that continuing advancement in technology is and will be beneficial to society. While other people can disagree, and probably bring up some good arguments in where the technology has done more harm than good, I still feel that the advancement of technology is inevitable. We, as humans are always in search of a way to make our lives easier and better. Since the beginning of time, human kind has been advancing in technology.
I have always thought I was more likely to use my feelings to make decisions rather than what my head tells me – but this assessment says otherwise. I have always been known as an extrovert, so for the assessment report to state that I “tend to focus on the outer world of people and activity” – validates the thoughts I have about myself. I believe these Career Assessments were very informative. The list of most popular and least popular occupations for each type is, in my opinion, the most helpful information in the entire report. As I previously mentioned, I am not certain on what I want to do for a career so the fact that the report disclosed a few job families and occupations that suit my type the best, was very
Most of scientists want to become the first and prominent in their inventions because if they get succeed, their names would not be forgotten. Some of them achieve their goals and bring favor to humanity, but others fail on their ways and even can bring the harm to people, because everything has positive and negative sides, and science is not an exception. There are many prominent scientists who really helped people with their investigations and made a big progress in our generation. One of these scientists can be the Charles Darwin, the British scientist and naturalist, who propounded his theory of evolution and became famous by his writing “The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection” because it was based on indisputable proofs. Charles Darwin helped science to make a new approach in the doctrine of the origin of mankind, therefore his name gained a worldwide acceptance and fame and he received a number of awards for it.
