Informative Speech: Theories of Dream Analysis
Specific Purpose Statement: To inform my classmates about the theories of psychoanalysis and neuroscience in defining the function of dreams.
Attention Getter: Have you ever had those dreams wherein you feel as though you have fallen from an elevated area and suddenly, you are awaken by a jolt from your physical body as if you were actually in that situation? Many will say that dreams of falling are a sign of the fear of failing or a feeling of anxiousness about something you are about to encounter.
Thesis Statement: Although there are several theories in defining the purpose of dreaming, the expression of emotional experiences and subconscious thoughts, and the development of brain processes demonstrate why dreams are important.
Credibility Statement: Last spring, I took my first psychology class under Professor Noble. I became really interested about the different theories of dream analysis, two of which I will share with you.
Preview: Today, I will discuss about the function of dreams through two significant theories of psychoanalysis and neuroscience. First, I will present the ideas and approach that psychoanalysts take in explaining the purpose of dreams.
I. An approach that relates the expressions of one’s fears and emotions, psychoanalysis presents the belief that dreams are not merely a compilation of images and memories. A. Sigmund Freud, a well-known psychologist, introduced the idea of the subconscious as an influencing factor in a person’s dream behavior. 1. First, Freud became known for having presented the three levels of awareness: the conscious, preconscious and subconscious. a. The conscious state comprises of the actions and thoughts a person has that he is aware of. Moreover, the preconscious…...

...metals, change litmus (a dye extracted from lichens) red, and become less acidic when mixed with bases. Bases feel slippery, change litmus blue, and become less basic when mixed with acids. While Boyle and others tried to explain why acids and bases behave the way they do, the first reasonable definition of acids and bases would not be proposed until 200 years later. In the late 1800s, the Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius proposed that water can dissolve many compounds by separating them into their individual ions. Arrhenius suggested that acids are compounds that contain hydrogen and can dissolve in water to release hydrogen ions into solution. For example, hydrochloric acid (HCl) dissolves in water as follows: HCl | H2O | H+(aq) |  +  | Cl-(aq) | Arrhenius defined bases as substances that dissolve in water to release hydroxide ions (OH-) into solution. For example, a typical base according to the Arrhenius definition is sodium hydroxide (NaOH): NaOH | H2O    | Na+(aq) |  +  | OH-(aq) | The Arrhenius definition of acids and bases explains a number of things. Arrhenius's theory explains why all acids have similar properties to each other (and, conversely, why all bases are similar): because all acids release H+ into solution (and all bases release OH-). The Arrhenius definition also explains Boyle's observation that acids and bases counteract each other. This idea, that a base can make an acid weaker, and vice versa, is called neutralization.

Winning Maine and Nevada early, he fell to Rick Santorum in Colorado, Missouri and Minnesota. Don’t let the fact that Mitt Romney won past CPAC Straw Polls, which are much more a beauty contest then the 3 caucuses last week that Santorum clobbered Romney in, with the Romney campaign referring to a couple of them as beauty contests themselves. With Romney’s money, busing in tons of college students and picking up the tab for their attendance AND STRAW POLL vote, and that is exactly what he did. Even Santorum jumped in on that and commented that he doesn’t rig straw polls. According to the article I read, Will Romney’s ‘Good Enough’ Strategy be Good Enough for Voters? By Chris Stirewalt, Published February 15, 2012, at, Romney and his Super-PAC can defeat Santorum in the Republican race because Romney has a stronger hold in the Republican base. They trust him more and feel he is the strongest of the candidates thus far. However, he has a problem with flip-flopping on the issues and is seen by many of his Republican base as a weak candidate. Nevertheless, if you are a Republican, the vibes are very bad. Mitt Romney has shown a discouraging inability to appeal to the party’s base, while the race has damaged both Romney and the party. Newt Gingrich, in particular, sacrificed the party to his own ego by launching left-wing......

Leading someone is a big step in life, in order to do that you need the discipline and maturity, and I feels like I am a strong person to do it. I want to be one of the best police officers to be able to save and protect people from all harm. I like the things I do in life because it involves helping others and being proud of it. I have done volunteer work, stewpot, serveds as a page for Gov. Phil Bryant, camp with JROTC, held positions in officer at school, and so on, so that should explain why I like leading, motivating, and dedicating in my life. I feel that biological bases of behavior have contributed to my preference with sensation because I love and I am excited about my strongly like in life. The military is a good field for me, and want anything stop my dream. When I am motivating myself, I feel as if nobody is in control other than me. Perception has contributed also to what I love to do because it gives me the ability to observe what I am capable of doing in my life as well as others to see I am willing to be a helpful hand. In order to motivate someone I have to stay positive at all times. I love motivating others to show them I believe in them, and they can achieve anything in life.

Bases of Power

...Journal of Social Issues, Vol. 49, No. 4 , 1993. pp. 227-251 The Bases of Power: Origins and Recent Developments Bertram H. Raven University of California, Los Angeles The history and background of the analysis of the basis of power is examined, beginning with its origins in the works of Kurt Lewin and his followers at the Research Center for Group Dynamics, particularly the early research by John R. P. French. The original French and Raven (1959) bases of power model posited six bases of power: reward, coercion, legitimate, expert, referent, and informational (or persuasion; Raven, 1965). Since then, as the result of considerable research, the model has gone through signiJicant developments. A more comprehensive model is presented here that reviews the following: various motivations of the influencing agent; an assessment of available power bases in terms of potential effectiveness, time perspective, personal preferences, values and norms; consideration of other strategies such as manipulation; utilization of various preparatory and stage-setting devices to strengthen olte’s power resources; implementation of the power strategies; assessment of effectiveness of influence attempt and its positive andl or negative aftereffects; use of various ameliorative devices; and review, reconsideration, and another round of influence strategies. The overall model is examined in terms of its applicability to various settings including hospital infection control, patient compliance...

Bases of Economics

...value of the final goods and services newly produced in a fixed period of time within the geographic boundaries of a country. Fundamental Identity: GDP=total production=total expenditure=total income (wages+profits) Expenditure Approach (supply=demand): Y= C+I+G+NX (G= government purchase, that is different from public expenses, because government spending includes also transfers). What happens if price rise over time? Also if the quantity of the output does not increase the GDP seems to increase (price x quantity). To overcome this problem we need to distinguish between real GDP and nominal GDP. Economists calculate real output by using for every year the same constant price as weights. GDP (y1) = Q(1) x P(0) we are using year 0 as base year, and we use this year also for the next years. However in this way we don’t take into account the added value of technologies, in fact, as the computer industry, pc have raising price because they became better in the years. For this reason government to calculate GDP started to use “chain weight”. It means calculate the growth for example between the year 3 and 4, by using Y3 prices and by using Y4 prices and taking a geometric average. Different indexes: 1. Laspeyres Index: initial period prices 2. Paasche Index: final period prices 3. Fisher Index: Geometric average (GDP uses a chained Fisher Index) Fisher index is useful because it deals with substitution bias and it eliminates the need to rebase GDP. GDP try......

The DBMS which would be used in creating a database for Tech Shop is MySQL. This is because it conforms to the relational database model and it is open source. Schemas, Instances and Data Independence A database schema is the description of a database. A displayed schema is called a schema diagram. A schema diagram only displays certain details such as names of a record, data items and some constraints. A database schema can be at two possible levels; the physical level which describes the physical design of a database and the logical level which describes the logical level of a data base. Actual data stored in a database changes frequently due to inserts, updates and deletes. So the data stored in a database a particular point in time is known as an instance or a database state Data independence is the ability to change the schema at one level without having to change the schema at another level. DATA MODELS A data/database model describes the structure and operation of a database. It specifically describes how data may be accessed and presented users and programmers. According to Yeates & Wakefield, (2004), the most common database found today are relational databases, this is because they provide less coding and maintenance effort. Other common models include:    Flat Model Hierarchical Model Network......

Bases of Power

...Bases of Power There are five bases of power in the given organization. The first base of power is reward power. Reward power is defined as being the opposite of coercive power and that “people comply with the wishes or directives of another because doing so produces positive benefits” (Robbins & Judge, 2007, pg. 471.) Employee 1 in the scenario wants to receive the bonus that he/she will be granted upon the successful completion of his/her annual evaluation. To ensure his/her tasks are finished and that they are correct, Employee 1 oftentimes works over his/her scheduled 40 hour work week by working late and on weekends at the encouragement of the marketing manager. The marketing manager often reminds the Employee 1 and his/her peers of the yearly bonus. The employee complying with the wishes of the marketing manager for he/she to work late so he/she will receive a good performance evaluation, thus resulting in the receipt of the desired bonus is an example of Employee 1 being affected by reward power. The marketing manager uses the second base of power, which is legitimate power. Legitimate power is defined as “the formal authority to control and use organizational resources” (Robbins & Judge, 2007, pg. 472.) The marketing manager being the person responsible for the evaluation of the employees, thus affecting whether or not Employee 1 receives the bonus he/she really wants is a demonstration of this power. The distribution of a bonus to an employee is an example......

Base Details

...Ahmad Salah English 104 3/24/2015 Explication of “Base Details” by Siegfried Sassoon If I were fierce, and bald, and short of breath, I’d live with scarlet majors at the Base. And speed glum heroes up the line to death. You’d see me with my puffy petulant face, Guzzling and gulping in the best hotel. Reading the Roll of Honor. “Poor young chap,” I’d say—“I used to know his father well; Yes we’ve lost heavily in this last scrap” And when the war is done and youth stone dead; I’d toddle safely home and die—in bed. In Siegfried Sassoon’s “Base Details,” the speaker, a young ordinary soldier, says that his life would be so much different if he was an older officer. During that war, only young soldiers were involved in the fighting; Sassoon was one of them. As a British soldier in World War I, Sassoon well understood the military life. Raised in the carefree, luxurious life of the British upper classes, Sassoon was at first a strong believer of war; however, his attitude completely changed as he became angered by those who profited at the expense of others. “Base Details” is an example of him expressing anti-war sentiment. The sarcastic tone of Sassoon reveals his true thoughts, developing the poem’s central message that the officers’ indifference unnecessarily leads their troops to death. Sadly, older officers had a lot of excesses; young soldiers were the ones facing their fate. The narrator, speaking in first person in this dramatic monologue,......
