While Neruda never states it overtly, this is clearly a poem of an older man. Neruda demonstrates a calm self-reflection that is born of experience. While he claims not to know himself, he in fact knows himself incredibly well. He has had many experiences with himself, and is able to contemplate these experiences with distance and humility. The narrator has amassed an enormous collection of selves; collections take time to amass. And though he has an enormous collection of selves,……[more]

Literature Review

This research explored the notion of whether or not guided imagery could help children manage their own pain levels. It also rests on the theoretical concept that guided imagery is a noninvasive and alternative method for successfully managing pain in various types of patient populations. Weydert et al. (2006) used a more specific population, working directly with children and minors under the age of 18 years old who suffer from reoccurring abdominal pain issues.

Psychological Research Of The 21st Century Human Memory

This shift may additionally be attributed to the change in the centuries, as many areas of thought, research and study experienced a shift or other sort of change with the coming of the 21[st] century. Literature Review As the 21[st] century approached, Daniel Schacter of Harvard University conducted and published research that seemed revolutionary or radical at the time -- research that fell upon the "wrong side" of the arguments regarding the structure, capacity, and function of human memory.

Literature Review

Van Goozen et al. also focus on gender differences in aggression. Their research examined two different independent variables, testosterone administration and sports choice, and how those variables impacted aggression. What they discovered is that sports choice did not impact aggression levels in female athletes, suggesting that environmental factors, at least in adult athletes, did not elicit higher levels of aggression (Van Goozen et al., 1994). However, when focusing on female-to-male transgender people, they did find that the administration of testosterone……[more]

Study design: 1.). What qualitative design is used? Taylor employed pre- and post-test subject (student) and proctor (educator) interview, where the test condition was a multi-media production class; participant observation, researcher selection on basis of interest (gender, race and ethnicity); answers were open-coded for "repeating, emergent themes that helped answer my three research questions" (Turner, 2011, p. 616); pre- and post-test Likert-type scale response analysis for specific skill attainment and technology mode. The last would approach quantitative analysis except that……[more]

Literature Of The Family

In turning to "In My Father's House" by Earnest J. Gaines, and sticking with the seed motif, one can safely say that one of the major themes "In My Father's House" is one reaps what he/she sows. What you do in life, good, bad, otherwise, comes back to haunt you. And the suicide of Robert X is an embodiment of that lesson. In reading about this book, in preparation for this essay, I came across a conversation the author had……[more]

Literature Review In Computer Science

This approach is likely too difficult for many users, so the implementation of this method and the use of this study's results are limited. In CAPTCHA for Blind People, the authors propose using simple math problems that are then converted to speech; when the sound is played, the user enters the answer [6]. The proposed system is thoroughly described, but a limitation of the paper is that it involves no testing; the authors only present their theories. 3. Cognitive CAPTCHAs……[more]

There are other instances in which Prufrock spoke negatively of himself, showing little confidence in himself and his abilities. "I am not Prince Hamlet," he says. He calls himself "an attendant lord" and "The Fool," assuring the reader that he has very little self-confidence. It is important to note that Prufrock is not lacking confidence for complete lack of effort. As a matter of fact, he does make some attempts at showing confidence, with his tie "asserted by a simple……[more]

Literature Review Instructors Of Foreign Languages Perspective Of Self Directed Learning At College Level

Self-motivation is often seen as a particularly critical aspect of secondary language learning. One educator observed: "We should also communicate more clearly to the second language learner that he [sic] is responsible for his own learning. This is obviously more easily said than brought about. Students generally expect too much from school and college. Often they perceive these institutions of knowledge as mental filling stations where teachers and professors equipped with 'Niirnberg funnels' are replenishing empty heads. This impression has……[more]

Literature Review Social Comparison

Ultimately, these two studies indicate that nothing can be assumed in the study of social comparison theory. The author makes it clear these assumptions have been common in the past, and they have been incorrect. As the author notes, "Taken together, these results tie in with a larger body of literature in social cognition suggesting that there are cognitive filters of selective attention, representation, and recall that help people maintain positive beliefs" (Author). Thus, the student should be wary of……[more]

Literature Review

" (Reynolds, 2003) Consider the number of studies that are currently being used to monitor the residue of DDT and the threat of other insect control substances as well as the potentially hazardous agriculturally based fertilizers. The reason for those monitoring processes was obvious; those types of toxins have been shown to remain in the environmental ecosystems for very long periods of time. Today, however, the problem of water treatment has been exacerbated ten fold by the fact that in……[more]

Literature On The Book The Fires Of Jubilee Nat Turner s Fierce Rebellion

In addition, the bravery and courage of Nat Turner was the root cause, which made this rebellion possible in the first place. This action, which may seem ordinary at present, was unimaginable especially by the slave community at that point in time.

In Southampton, county black people came to measure time from……[more]

Literature Review

When conducting social research, social science specialists have to take several political dimensions into consideration. These political aspects to consider are not clearly pointed out in a manual, but they are rather implied. At an overall level, political considerations of social study refer primarily to the means in which the social data would be collected and utilized. Thee distinct elements to which attention must be paid throughout the social research process refer to the objectivity of the study, the ideology……[more]

How much can a hospital disclose online without compromising patient security? "Hospital IT departments are concerned about security risks, such as the use of, which can mask malicious Web sites. Privacy concerns, particularly the vulnerability of social media accounts, are also cited as a reason to avoid social media" (Sharp 2010). However, despite the legitimacy of these issues, any attempt to circumvent the encroachment of social media is clearly swimming against the tide of change. IT's potential may not……[more]

Different units that have the different experiences during disasters are never available. This has been a major problem that needs to be addressed. There are different local and International health agents that should be called when such situations arise.

Literature And Relevance To Our Lives

Literature and its relevance to our lives The death of serious literature is often mourned as a casualty of our hyper-visual culture. In his essay "Why Literature" the author Mario Vargas Llosa notes how he is often assured by (usually male) autograph-seekers that they are "too busy" to read as much as they would like, as if, Llosa tartly notes, serious reading is a disposable activity, as trivial as a game of bridge. However, critics such as Llosa should take……[more]

VandenBos uses the Consumer Reports study as a validation of earlier research which he believes indicates that psychotherapy is better than no treatment at all. However, this survey from a popular magazine is far from a ringing endorsement of talk therapy. Firstly, merely because individuals desire therapeutic treatment and view the practice as positive in nature does not necessarily mean it is effective. Their belief in psychotherapy could simply have been the result of the cultural shift that has occurred,……[more]

5. What were the limitations of this study in regards to its applicability to the general population? Even though this study had a lot of great information regarding immunizations and how programs to educate parents can improve the number of children who are properly immunized and therefore reduce disease, this was targeted to a very specific group of people in specific zip codes in one community. Ethnicity, income levels, education levels, and the number of (or lack of) other types……[more]

Thus, another alternative for both salt and fresh water would be using a freezing methodology as a part of the purification process. "Freezing is an alternate method, based on the different freezing points of fresh and salt water. The ice crystals are separated from the brine, washed free of salt, and melted into fresh water." (WA.Gov, 2005) Because freezing can be used to desalinate water, it would seem as a cheap source since the majority of the first world uses……[more]

Literature Review And Research Design

Limitations of this study A major limitation of this study that was identified by the researchers was the provider's incomplete data reporting to the CIR (Findley et al., 2008). This may have resulted in an overrepresentation of the number of children who lacked proper immunization. When compared to the parent maintained immunization cards, the researchers found that 24 percent of immunizations were on the cards but not entered into the CIR database. This reliance on the CIR database for records……[more]

Literature Reaction

It is all well and good in one sense for the school district to launch a pay-for-performance system in order to get the most out of the teachers - who in turn are motivated to get the most out of the students - but how are the executives in a district going to determine the amount of value that a teacher adds to the school? If the teacher simply "teaches to the test" - an all-to-common approach in some schools……[more]

Literature Response Focusing On Suburbia

Indeed, Merrill began his sojourn happy as a lark, and ran and jumped like a school kid full of energy at first. After five pools and five cocktails, though, things began to turn dark for the swimmer and his penultimate visit to a public pool, where he was compelled to borrow 50 cents for admission, provided Merrill with the epiphany he was searching for, even if it was not the one he wanted. Upon learning what his daughters truly thought……[more]

Classroom cash can be redeemed for certain specific privileges, like for example, for hallway passes, where he may want to sit, and at times, credit towards assignments.

The objective of the program would be that the student would learn the ways and means in which positive and negative……[more]

Literature Into Film

Daniel Day-Lewis has said that when he first read Kundera's novel he considered it un-filmable, and several of the reviewers of THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING agreed with its star's initial judgment. Kaufman and his co-screenwriter, Jean-Claude Carriere, decided to present their impressions of the novel with no pretensions of strict faithfulness. In addition to eliminating the omnipresent narrator, the most significant change is that the disordered events of the novel are presented in chronological order in the film, except……[more]
