Visual Analysis writing assignment - Essay Example Inventory Image of a young girl from the back wearing white cotton skirt, and looking into a circular hole or what appears as a circular window in a dramatically patterned wall. A wide-brimmed hat obscures her head and echoes the shape of the entryway. She is bare feet and stands tentatively on her toes with the right foot overlapping the left one as though she wants to create stairs with her feet. She seems to be investigating something mysterious from inside the tunnel in which her right hand has disappeared into the unseen contents of the void. Intense sunlight is revealed with the distinct shadow cast by the girlÃ¢â¬â¢s body on the wall. The girl appears to be searching for an unknown thing, which leaves us investigating the contrast between the fearful unknown and her innocence. Composition One of the evident principle of design in this composition is emphasis whereby the artist pulls our eyes to the void through which the subject seems to be searching for something. ... The circular shape creates a sense of substance and space particularly positive space taken up by the subject. In addition, shape is also seen in the complex and dramatic pattern of the rectangles and squares of the wall. The surface texture of this image appears rough with black and white value that creates timelessness. Finally, there is repetition particularly of the circular shape, which results into a composition with unity and balance. Visual cues Black and white is the color of this photo, but with various tones. In addition, there is a sharp contrast created by the shadow revealing the photo was taken during intense sunlight. With respect to form, the circular shape of the heart leads the eyes of the audience to peep into the circular tunnel that seem to capture all the attention of this girls as she looks for an unknown inside the circular hole. When it comes to depth, only the foreground is focused, as the background is invisible due to the dramatically patterned old wall t hat blocks it. However, depth is visible in the circular portal, which appears to go deep inside beyond the wall. Finally, there is little movement with the only one created by the girl struggle to see what is inside or beyond the hole. This minimal, restricted movement creates a sense of fear. Semiotic signs and codes The element of semiotic signs and codes in this photo is the exaggerated big hat, which resonates with the Mexican people. The kind of hat in this photo is particularly used for those who work in plantations perhaps to shield them from intense sun, as well as for some cultural festivities. Along with the long white skirt, these two semiotic signs and codes play a significant role in determining the narrative of this image. Cognitive elements The cognitive

Descriptive Statistics Commentary Essay In Condition A, participants were told to look at a list of words whilst listening to music, they were then asked to match the pairs with the music turned off. In Condition B the music was kept on whilst participants were matching the pairs.Ã The mean average for Condition A is 4.8 pairs whilst the mean average for Condition B is 4.15 pairs.Ã The median average for Condition A is 4.5 pairs compared to Condition B that is 3 pairs.Ã The modal average for Condition A is 4 pairs, whilst the modal average for Condition B is 2. Additional Graphical Description of ResultsÃ Descriptive Statistics CommentaryÃ The highest amount of words learnt in my line graph was 11 and the lowest was 0. The graph shows that people who got low recall in Condition A, also got low recall in Condition B. Only one participant got all eleven pairs matched correctly on both conditions. Almost none of the participants got any incorrect and this is shown on the graph.Ã There is one piece of extreme data on my line graph, where the participant matched all the pairs correctly in each condition. There is also a lot of overlap between the two conditions and this shows that the outcome for each condition was very similar. The difference in each condition is difficult to explain.Ã Relationship of Results to HypothesisÃ My results show that people did not learn more words with music on, in fact they learned less. Only one participant matched all eleven pairs in both conditions. The overall result shows that the music didnt act as a cue as it did not aid learning or recall.Ã The results do not relate to my hypothesis, as I did not prove that music aids learning. Therefore I must accept my null hypothesis. The averages for both conditions were 4.8 for Condition A and 4.15 for Condition B, this is very close and there is not a significant difference.Ã DiscussionÃ ValidityÃ In this experiment I manipulated whether or not music was played to the participants. A problem with the experiment is that it lacks in ecological validity. In real life people do not pair words, memory does not work in the same way as an experiment, we do not think in lists. This experiment is trying to look at something that is not true to life. Suggestions for improved validityÃ Ways of improving validity could be to do a field experiment, do longitudinal studies or to keep a diary case. Participants could learn in a classroom what they have to learn and then sit the exams in the same classroom. This may help them to remember.Ã A case study would provide insight however you cannot generalize.Ã A field experiment is good as you can also get rid of demand characteristics but you cannot control extraneous variables and you cannot generalise. ReliabilityÃ Experiments are generally reliable because it produces quantitative data and it can be replicated. You can generalise and you can also control extraneous variables.Ã When the experiment took place participants, copied off each other, they shouted the answers out and there was generally a lot of noise in the room. There were also more girls than boys. Participants didnt want to ask questions about the task, so it is possible that they may not have fully understood what to do, they are responding to demand characteristics. Opportunity sampling is also very limited and I was only allowed to experiment on English classrooms.Ã Improving ReliabilityÃ Having a special room to do the experiment in would help improve reliability. Also maybe getting the participants to take us more seriously would help.Ã Maybe not giving the participants as long to look at the words would also improve reliability or having a person in authority be present.Ã ImplicationsÃ My background information like Tulving and Godden and Baddeley suggest that cues help recall. I used music as a cue in my experiment and that did not appear to help recall. The difference in the two conditions was very narrow. This may indicate that the experiment was wrong in some way. Generalisation of FindingsÃ The experiment was done on 20 17-19 year olds who are studying AS or A2 levels. You cannot generalise to the rest of the population as students are trained to remember as they have been in education since the age of 5.Ã You could therefore only generalise on 17-19 year olds in full time education. It did not tell us about age or gender.Ã A sample of 20 is far too small to generalise from, as 20 people cannot account for everyone in the rest of the population.Ã Application to everyday lifeÃ In many situations cues can be very helpful. Students use cues to help them to revise for exams and the examiner can use a stimulus to help the student to remember in exams. E.g. after revising for psychology, students could use Tulvings ideas to create categories of information to make the work more manageable and easier to remember.

Insider Trading Article Q1. What is Jeffery Archer accused of? Jeffery Archer is accused of insider trading with the shares of Anglia TV. Jeffery bought shares for the Ã¢â¬Å"inside informationÃ¢â¬ of the companies dealing account, the day after the last board meeting but before the bid was announced. He should have known that even if he found out insider information from his wife the law makes it clear that he cannot deal or trade with that stock. It would be considered unfair to the rest of the shareholders, because other shareholders would not have the same information like Jeffery. As we know the buying and selling of shares must be based on public information Q2. Who is Mary Archer and which insider trading rule, may she have violated? Mary Archer is the wife of Jeffery Archer, and also she is a director for Anglia TV Company. The insider trading rule that Mary may have violated is that if she did tell her husband about the insider information from board meetings, she should beware that directorÃ¢â¬â¢s close relatives are not allowed to deal ahead of takeover bids. Also questions arise in the article, that as it is accepted that Mary did not tell her husband about the bid, how much information has found out without her knowledge. If she did share information with her husband than she violate the rule of insider trading which states that:Ã¢â¬ Insider shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t communicate private information to others who are likely to use itÃ¢â¬ . Q3. Who is Brooke Saib and which insider trading rule has he violated? Brook Saib was the aide of Jeffery Archer. The article shows that he has access to brokers and invests a lot. What happened was that Jeffery bought shares through a different broker than the usual, with the name of Brook Saib and the profits transferred to SaibÃ¢â¬â¢s account. The odd thing is that also a profit of 80,000 pounds has left SaibÃ¢â¬â¢s account. And over that, he said that Ã¢â¬Å"dare not sayÃ¢â¬ where the money is.

SWOT ANALYSIS TEMPLATE Before you sit down to plan the future of your clubÃ¢â¬â¢s marketing activities, you need to take stock of where your club is now and why you are there. One useful way to get a clear picture of where your club currently sits is by using a SWOT analysis. SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. By using the SWOT analysis you can identify where your club stands in the market, which provides a useful launch pad for making future marketing plans. Take the time to work through the SWOT process carefully and you will have a clearer idea of: The things your club does well, and the things you need to improve on (strengths and opportunities). Ã¢â¬ ¢ What types of competition exist for your club and which ones can be defended (strengths and threats) Ã¢â¬ ¢ Whether your club needs to change the product itself to protect from outside influences (weaknesses and threats) Ã¢â¬ ¢ Which issues your club needs to make as its priorities (weaknesses a nd opportunities). Strengths When you look at the strengths, concentrate on the club itself and whether it can achieve the outcomes you want.Examples of strengths include: Ã¢â¬ ¢ Strong financial base. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Strong local need for your product, many new members, etc. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Group of skilled volunteers. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Support from local businesses, politicians, etc. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Well-equipped clubhouse. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Committee is well-structured, enthusiastic, capable, etc. Weaknesses Weaknesses often appear as the direct opposite of the strengths listed above and include: Ã¢â¬ ¢ Weak financial base. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Diminishing need or desire for your product, fewer new members, etc. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Few volunteers. Ã¢â¬ ¢ No support from local businesses, politicians, etc. Out of date ill equipped clubhouse. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Committee is poorly structured, overworked, disinterested, etc. Opportunities Opportunities refer to the possibilities of new growth because of the changes in the external environment and can include such things as: Ã¢â¬ ¢ Promotion of sport by government authorities, e. g. renewed Ã¢â¬ËPush PlayÃ¢â¬ campaign. Ã¢â¬ ¢ New population of potential users moving into the area, e. g. with children. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Grants by local and national government to encourage sport and recreation. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Organisations looking to sponsor local activities. Seasonal interest in particular sports, e. g cricket in summer, football in winter. Ã¢â¬ ¢ International or national interests the activity your club is involved in, e. g Commonwealth or Olympic Games. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Promotion of your activity to a different age group or gender e. g. lawn bowls to teenagers, rugby to girls. Threats As with strengths and weaknesses, the threats are often very similar to the opportunities. Examples of threats include: Ã¢â¬ ¢ Traditional sponsors of sport and recreation changing the way they spend their sponsorship dollars. Seasonal interest in particular sports or activities which is in direct competition with your o wn, e. g. competing codes of Rugby. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Promotion of sport to different age groups or gender which competes with your clubÃ¢â¬â¢s interest e. g. ballet and soccer for girls. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Other interests including television, video games, school activities, part-time work for teenagers, and so on. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Time related issues for example, competition for volunteers time, longer working hours, both parents working Ã¢â¬â children unable to attend, limited available free time for both children and parents. Other organisations with better facilities. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Lack of knowledge and interest in your product. A SWOT Analysis should be drawn up to look like this: |Internal |STRENGTHS |WEAKNESSES | |Factors |Vision : simple and quick |Not having international experience, therefore diversification | |(Things about |Strong funding |might be a problem at later stage. |your club) |Experienced partners: Norwest Venture Partners brings in a lot of |No acquisition till date as a result OLX has s urpassed quikr. | | |experience |Employee base is very low: Need to increase the sales force and| | |Horizontal rather than vertical |target other opportunity to increase market share. | |Customer Centric, not just technology centric : Free missed call | | | |Investment in analytics, mobile platforms | | |External |OPPORTUNITIES |THREATS | |Factors |Internet penetration(10%) is bound to increase |Low entry barrier | |(Things |Internet surfing through mobiles has surpassed PC.

Ã¢â¬Å"Time for your daily pillÃ¢â¬ shouts the nurse kindly. Though itÃ¢â¬â¢s hard to believe people are nice, kind and even helping the elderly. Around 85 years ago during the Great Depression the elderly were treated in the most terrible way, of course they werenÃ¢â¬â¢t treated as the worst because racism was still pretty big. They people around them were scamming the elderly from their money. Though the elderly were still being abused they still made a dent in the population and have enough people to make a minority. Though the elderly worked hard they lost their jobs. Though the elder abuse is 2-10 % it is still pretty high (Ã¢â¬Å"Ageism in AmericaÃ¢â¬ ). Though the Great Depression affected most of the people of the United States of America the ones who were affected by the most in everything but physical abuse were the elderly. What exactly is ageism in the 1930Ã¢â¬â¢s and who invented the term is a question that should be answered and is. Thankfully it is answered for us. According to Open Society institute who wrote the article Ageism in America said that ageism is a term that was invented by Dr. Robert Butler during the 1968. Though the term was invented in 1968 it was still around before it was actually named and it still exists today. For instance there was this guy who acted like a tree trimmer.

Sample details Pages: 3 Words: 787 Downloads: 7 Date added: 2019/08/07 Category People Essay Level High school Tags: Mahatma Gandhi Essay Did you like this example? Gandhi childhood, He was the youngest of four children in his family, but then his family moved to the town of Rajkot when he was only seven years old. Gandhi was a member of the Hindu religion which meant he wasnt allowed to eat meat or drink wine. Gandhi attended an all boy school when he was about seven years old in Rajkot. DonÃ¢â¬â¢t waste time! Our writers will create an original "Life Of Mahatma Gandhi" essay for you Create order Once he finished elementary school Gandhi attended a high school in Rajkot with other boys as well. As he was finishing high school Gandhi began to wonder where he would attend college. So in 1818 Mohandas Gandhi left his country, and his family to study law in London. There Gandhi adapted to the countrys way of dressing and other things involving school and work. Have you ever wonder why this particular Indian activist was important to us? He was a great leader that led Indias independence in the 1930s and 40s. Facing down the British colonialists with stirring speeches and non-violent protest. He was born on October 2, 1869, his full name being Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and was assassinated January 30, 1948, New Delhi, India.Mahatma Gandhis birthday is a national holiday in India. It is also the international Day of Non-Violence. Mohandas Gandhi is often called Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma is a term that means Great Soul. Its a religious title sort of like Saint in Christianity. In India he is called the Father of the Nation also Bapu, which means father. Gandhi would be put in prison for protests several times for organizing these protests. The British government would eventually have to release him because the Indian people had grown to love Gandhi. He would often not eat while he was in prison as well. The British were scared what would happe n if they let him die. Each of these protests may seem small by themselves, but when most of the population does them at once, they can have an enormous impact. Youre thinking what did Gandhi do in prison did he read books about protests? Well he Gandhis civil disobedience was inspired by American Transcendentalists Henry David Thoreau, whose famous essay Civil Disobedience. A fun fact about Gandhi was when the war was taken place with Hitler he wrote a letter to him, addressing him as Dear Friend, as beseeched him to stop the war, but Hitler never wrote back. When Gandhi traveled to South Africa In 1893 it was there when he and his fellow Indians encountered constant discrimination by the Dutch and the British, which inspired Gandhi to fight for their rights. Now lets start with some of successful protests. It was called the Salt March. When Britain put a tax on salt, Gandhi decided to walk 241 miles to sea in Dandi to make his own salt. Thousands of Indians joined him in his march. Gandhi did also fought for civil rights and liberties among Indian people. Gandhi forged Indias independence from British rule in 1947 by staging massive peaceful demonstrations against poverty, and the fight for womens rights and religious tolerance. He continues to inspire nonviolent human rights movements all around the world and has influenced the leadership of contemporary heavyweights like Nelson Mandela, Cesar Chavez, the Dalai Lama, and Aung San Suu Kyi. Gandhi was not the best student. Although he was known for being highly ethical with good English skills, he was considered a mediocre student in math and poor in Geography. He also had bad handwriting, which he was embarrassed about. Similarly, Gandhi also conducted the Dandi march when the British imposed a heavy tax on salt.While Gandhi was elected to be a member of the Congress party in the year 1920, he later walked out of the party in 1934 and continued to work towards Indias independence struggle by himself. With repeated boycotts, disobedience movements, and nationwide rallying of the people with the Quit India movement to overthrow the empire, the British finally conceded and agreed to leave India, making it independent. After Indias partition came into effect, the nation split into India and Pakistan. Many people began to detest the policies of Gandhi. Nathuram Godse was a Hindu nationalist, who had a strong hatred for Gandhi. As a result, he fired three bullets at Gandhi on 30th January 1948 at around 5.17pm and assassinated him. The title of Mahatma was bestowed on Gandhiji and a Ã large funeral was arranged for him. More than 20 lakh people attended the funeral to bid goodbye to the father of our nation. In conclusion, Mahatma Gandhi considered himself a failure. But his place in history is secure, and it does not diminish his greatness to point that in some respects. He had spent his life working toward the achievement of independence for India without violence or division.

The death penalty is something about which many people do not have a clear opinion. It is considered to be the punishment of execution, administered to someone convicted of a capital crime. Many people support the death penalty, while others wish for the death penalty to be abolished. My personal opinion on the death penalty is that it should be administered only in cases of certain crimes such as: serial murder, serial rape, and terrorism. Groups that support the death penalty often say that it deters criminals from committing future crimes like murders or other heinous crimes. On the contrary, many criminals do not think of the consequences of their actions when they are committing a crime, nor do they care what happensÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦This verse tells people that the government has the authority to instigate capital punishment if they feel it is necessary, and they should comply with their decision. Many are disturbed by the execution of mentally challenged or i ncompetent criminals. The U.S Supreme Court on June 20, 2002 declared that the execution of the mentally challenged is unconstitutional, as well as cruel and unusual punishment. The Ã¢â¬Å"criminalÃ¢â¬ is usually pardoned when further evidence comes out. An incident of this happening is the case of David Vasquez. David Vasquez was arrested for the murder of a woman who was killed in her Arlington County, Virginia home. She was sexually assaulted and then hung. Vasquez, who was borderline mentally retarded, had reportedly confessed to the crime, allegedly supplying details not released to the public. Additionally, Vasquez could not provide an alibi and was placed near the scene of the crime by two eyewitnesses. Investigators also found pubic hairs that visually resembled those of Vasquez. VasquezÃ¢â¬â¢s attorneys argued that the interrogations were tainted because of his lower than normal intelligence. Friends said that he reacts to the world like a young child and that he is easily flustered under pressure. He was described in court as having Ã¢â¬Å"borderline retarded/low normalÃ¢â¬ intelligence.
