Another Interpretation of the Flynn Effect
The Flynn Effect has been analyzed and discussed for years (Bennett, Briggs, & Triola, 2014). It has been debated if this phenomenon is accurate, what it truly means, how it effects populations today, and countless other scenarios (Nijenhuis & van der Flier, 2013). Dr. Flynn was truly onto a great breakthrough in modern intelligence when he stumbled upon this revelation; however, what does it…...

...Flynn Effect Do you believe people are really getting smarter? Why or why not? Yes People are getting smarter than before and we all can see that nowadays with all the inventions around us that we all using. It’s all because there are a lot of differences between now and before such as that we are studying more subjects than before (than the old generation already studied) and we have a lot of new subjects even with the teaching methods its changing to be easier and there is a lot of opportunities for studying because new technologies also can help us to study more efficiently. And now in a family you will find that both husband and wife is educated well enough. They have learned many things through the life experience. Those things can let the new born become smarter and help them in their thinking development. And the languages we are talking more than one language and we all looking to be talking and learning different languages. Plus it is getting so easy to get the information so we are able to get any information anytime anywhere. Which of the factors explaining the Flynn Effect do you accept? They have explained four different factors, which is Education, Smaller Families, Test-talking savvy and Genes. Education has been changed a lot since past years. Today students use the modern technologies for studying purpose. Internet is one of the most useful things for studying especially to get the information. And in these days students are taking a lot of tests...

...at divergent thinking. A typical kind of question would be: how many uses can you think of for a paper clip? He says an average person might think of ten to fifteen. Someone who is really good at it might think of two hundred. In the test if you scored above a certain level you would be considered a genius at divergent thinking. An important thing to know about the people tested is that they were all in kindergarten. The percentage of these children that scored at genius level was ninety eight percent. The same children were tested again in five years and the percentage went down to about fifty. They were tested again Rummler 4 five years after that and it went down significantly again. They continued with the same testing after another five years and the decreasing trend in results continued. (YouTube.com) Most would expect that we get better as we get older. We become more “educated” and experienced and better able to do “things” or in other words, be successful. This study illustrates a very interesting idea. We all start out with something of a genius-level ability to solve problems and as we become more and more educated we loose this ability for whatever reason. The crazy thing is that the world really would like us to hang on to that valuable ability but at the same time prominent hegemony does not support the kinds of systems that best foster it. The public education system is not structured to allow for much creativity. When asked if creativity should......

The Flynn Effect

...The Flynn Effect 1. Question 1 In my opinion is important to define the meaning of “getting smarter” and I think it is to have achieved a greater level of consciousness about the world and opportunities around us. Taken this point we can say that the environment created by us is constantly changing reflecting the goals achieved in the research and in the science, due this consideration, actually there are better instruments to learn and to help people to unlock their potentials through the studying. It means that the level of education is getting higher generation by generation, and the gap between the new one and the old one seems to getting bigger. As a response of this situation, the level of competition and preparation required by the job market has risen in the last decades and it is seems that the only way to follow this path is to be smarter than the others, pushing up the average level of intelligence. 2. Question 2 I agree with the first, the second and the third point because they consider the evolution of the environment as a key factor in the achievement of a greater intellectual activity. Considering the fourth point I am partially disagree about the genes for the intelligence, because I think that the level of intelligence does not depend on something inherited. For example, if we think to shift the children of rich family with the ones of a poor one at the moment of the birth, I......

Neutrinos travelling the seven hundred and thirty kilometre journey from the CERN Institute in France to the Gran Sasso Institute in Italy arrived sixty nanoseconds earlier than they would have if they had been travelling at light speed.” Pia slipped into the left lane, only to be frustrated by a large London bus that felt the need to take up two. “If their findings are correct, it could render Einstein’s theory null, and make, at least theoretically, time travel possible.” Everything had reached a standstill. Pia’s fingers drummed the wheel. She thought about bending time backwards, about slipping into her life-already-lived, watching as effect morphed into its cause. Sitting in gridlock, she travelled back over her fortieth birthday: how her car would re-spiral the car park’s exit; how the candle flames on her birthday cake would illuminate at lunchtime; how the coffee would be drunk before she had made it; how she would eat the omelette before watching the albumen and yolk slide back into the unsplit shell; how the laundry would dampen rather than dry; how they would make love, this morning, her and Daniel Cord; make their twin journeys from being clothed to being naked, from orgasm to the first hints of arousal (which she had tried, at first – though she didn’t know why – to push away); how, just before he began to touch her, for minutes, lone and awake, she would......

Another Me?

...Another Me Cloning. Kind of cool? Kind of scary? Most things in life are. There's always been the thoughts of 'what-if-there's-another-me' throughout history. Well, what else is there to say but that cloning is already here? Many people are familiar with the story of 'Dolly' the cloned Finn Dorset sheep born from a Scottish Blackface mother; but are perhaps unaware that the process has been tried on multiple other animals. The most recent miracle occurring in Japan that resulted in a mouse being cloned from nothing but a drop of blood (2013, June 28). It doesn't stop there though. There are studies and experiments being done in cloning stem cells, blood and even organs; it's a very wide field to dive into. So, pop quiz here. What blood type is in high demand and very low in supply? All of them! Despite all of the medical advances the world needs so much more help with supply and demand. Now, what if one single blood cell could be taken and cloning could provide an unlimited amount of blood for any required transfusions? No need for donors, no risk of getting the wrong blood type. This may be closer than anyone thinks as red blood cells have already been produced by scientists at Advanced Cell Technology in Worcester, Massachusetts, the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota from stem cells (2008, August 19). They reported that the cloned blood cells acted just like natural blood cells and there's possibility of producing them on a...

Another Form of Narrative

...Another Form of Narrative Mise-en-scène is everything that is shown on camera. However, mise-en- scène is more than just the staging of scenes. The important functions of mise-en- scène are shown in the film The Secret in Their Eyes (2009), directed by Juan José Campanella. Without a good mise-en- scène, it would be more difficult for the film to narrate the story and highlight the theme; this is because mise-en- scène plays an important role in the development of narrative, upgrading of dramatic effects, and the presentation of theme. By unfolding the contents of narration, the setting, one of the components of mise-en- scène, helps the viewers’ understanding of the narrative. The old-school objects and items, such as the characters’ costumes, the vehicles, and the black-and-white photos, in The Secret in Their Eyes, told the audience that the story was taking place in an earlier time. According to David Bordwell, a famous film theorist, and his wife Kristin Thompson, the combination of setting and costumes would “reinforce narrative and thematic patterns”. One of the important settings in the movie was the soccer stadium, where Benjamin and Pablo captured Gomez. The size of the crowd and the stadium allowed Campanella to show the viewers how challenging it was to spot and capture Gomez. In addition, the loudness of the noise at the stadium was effective for intensifying the dramatic effect during the chase scene, or in this case, the climax. Lighting is also......

...adopted by the company in 2001.24 Due to its relevance to Coca-Cola’s business, the company also annually reports on the progress of the water stewardship programme’s targets. 2.3. Coca-Cola’s conflicts Several campaigns and demonstrations followed the publication of a report issued by the Indian NGO Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) in 2003. The report provided evidence of the presence of p ­ esticides, to a level exceeding European standards,25 in a sample of a dozen Coca-Cola and PepsiCo b ­ everages sold in India.26 With that evidence at hand, the CSE called on the Indian government to i ­mplement legally enforceable water standards. The report gained ample public and media attention, resulting in almost immediate effects on Coca-Cola revenues. The main allegations made by the NGO against Coca-Cola were that it sold products containing unacceptable levels of pesticides, it extracted large amounts of groundwater and it had polluted water sources.27 These conflicts will be discussed under 2.3.1 and 2.3.2. 2.3.1. The presence of pesticides Regarding the allegation about Coca-Cola beverages containing high levels of pesticide residues, the Indian government undertook various investigations. The government set up a Joint Committee28 to carry out its own tests on the beverages. The tests also found the presence of pesticides that failed to meet European standards, but they were still considered safe under local standards. Therefore, it was......

Another Language

...* Summery: The short story “ Another Language “ by Craig Cliff, starts with an introduction of the main character, a seven-year-old boy named James. He is living in New Zealand with his Mother, Father and his brother Daniel. Every Saturday James is visiting his grandparent, Baba and Dedo. James decides to find out why Dedo always is sad and quiet. When he asks his grandfather, James is introduced to the expression ‘stuttering’. Dedo tells James, that he stutters when he speaks the language Serbian, and that’s the reason for his move to New Zealand. James finds his grandfathers words unreliable; therefore he investigates the matter by himself, by hanging out with Marcus Collins. - The only associate James knows with stuttering-problems. At a visit in the grandparents’ house, James tells his grandfather about Marcus and the stuttering that only appears when he talks. Dedo seemed uninterested, which is frustrating for James. When James talks with his father about the problem, he finds out the Dedo used the stuttering, as an excused for not talking about his past. * Characterization James is a bright seven-year-old boy. He has a cheerfully and delighted personality, especially towards his family. He has a burning desire for his grandfather, Dedo, James wants him to be like his other grandfather, who is telling stories: (pg. 9, l. 63) “I desperately wanted him to tell me a story like my other grandfather, my mum’s dad, but Dad’s dad never seemed interested in stories. ...

Flynn Effect

...the left side of the curve.  But the Flynn Effect appears to be at the end of its days in Europe, at least. This from the Times:- WE ARE ABOUT AS SMART AS WE’RE GOING TO GET, SAYS IQ PIONEER * Test Results are starting to level out * Morality skills are the next step It is a common refrain, repeated in response to every new television reality show and every bumper crop of school exam results: society is dumbing down. Scientists have long argued the opposite, pointing to the now widely accepted “Flynn effect”, which shows that over the past century average IQ scores have improved across the developed world, irrespective of class or creed. Now the man who first observed this effect, the psychologist James Flynn, has made another observation: intelligence test scores have stopped rising. Far from indicating that now we really are getting dumber, this may suggest that certain of our cognitive functions have reached — or nearly reached — the upper limits of what they will ever achieve, Professor Flynn believes. In other words, we can’t get much better at the mental tasks we are good at, no matter how hard we try. If we are to make any further progress, we will have to start exercising different parts of our brain, particularly the parts controlling language acquisition and empathy, according to Professor Flynn, an emeritus professor at the University of Otago in New Zealand. So a couple of observations about this. First, the Flynn Effect has been tossed into more IQ......

...reach out and bless them with another chance. These are the cases where the involved can live through a religious experience and have the opportunity to save what they’ve previously ruined. Gerard is a handsome man from New York, who is approximately 40 years old. The turning point in the story is when Gerard meets Laurel coincidently after he sees her through a shop window. Gerard and Laurel are former partners, but the relationship ended when Gerard had to proclaim that he had made another woman pregnant while they were still dating. Gerard has Lucy with Issy, and after Issy moves to Los Angeles to fulfill her dreams about being a Hollywood actress, Gerard takes the responsibility of raising Lucy on his own. Four years after Issy went to Los Angeles she was found dead in a pool, possibly after a suicide as she had taken her time to write Gerard’s name as her next of kin. Gerard lives what could be conceived as a boring and regrettable life, with the exception of his daughter; Lucy. Lucy is Gerard’s light of the day. “Gerard feels a stabbing love for his daughter” [l.18], “She’s wonderful, just wonderful” [l.78], “I love you” [l.165]; in this short story we’re constantly reminded of Gerard’s endless love for his daughter, and it is clear that she is the light of his seemingly else uninteresting life. We, as readers, are never told which profession Gerard is in, nothing about his parents or childhood so none of it must important or interesting. Another reason that one can......

In the meantime, someone sent me a beautiful and haunting poem. Enjoy. Another Christmas, Another year ending; A year of pain and loss and bewilderment, Of beauty and fear, With a little love to make us go on struggling, A little joy to make it worth the struggle. Another Christmas, Another dream over. Do we dare to remember last year And the years before? So much is gone, so many memories, How can we stop what remains from becoming a shadow? Another Christmas, Another pause in the fighting. Can the pain that we give to others And the pain that we cause for ourselves Really be laid to rest by a Christmas card Or a sprig of mistletoe? Are we not as afraid of dying on Christmas Day? Another Christmas, Another pause for reflection: The morning I walked out alone in the cold golden sunlight, The evening I loved as was loved amid laughter and music, The afternoon of firelight and peace with my dream-shapes about me. Another Christmas, Another year beginning. Perhaps this year will see the end of us, Perhaps an indifferent stab will finally sever the tightrope on which we struggle. Do we dare to hope for a new beginning, A new trust, a new wisdom, a new love? (excerpts of a poem by Alison......
