In other words, rather than just asking questions, the leader must be willing to share his or her own opinions.
In a couples counseling session, it my be advisable that the coach does not raise too many of his or her own opinions, but rather stimulate the client to access the elements that have led to the current situation. Both clients, in interacting with each other, can then be stimulated to share their opinions while asking the other open questions that display genuine curiosity. Doing this is particularly important if the couple is faced with a specific conflict.

One partner can, for example, discuss his feelings about the conflict and how the other partner makes him feel when she does or says certain things. This transparency must be complimented by an open question that shows genuine interest in the listener's opinions about the conflict, reasons for her actions, and so on.….

The nineteenth century title of the work applies primarily to the girl at the right of the filed who is bent over the writing woman's shoulder, peering at the letter as it takes shape. Whatever the full intentions of this woman are, she is certainly trying to discern truth, and rather impatiently at that. Whether or not she is having more luck than the viewer of this work is hard to say, given her neutral facial expression and the lack of concern of the other two individuals in the painting. It is impossible to say what is in the letter, or whether the curious woman approves of what she reads or not, or in what way (if any) the news that the letter carries has an effect on her.
Other details of the painting provide further clues, however. The curious woman also appears o be the youngest of the group.….

Intellectual curiosity is a term used to describe one's desire to invest time and energy into learning more about a person, place, thing or concept. More than any other academic field, science, math and engineering satisfy my intellectual curiosity as these fields objectively demonstrate how things work in the real world. I have an unquenchable thirst to get to the bottom of things and learning more about the universe has only further enhanced my curiosity. I discovered my passion for the sciences in childhood and there has never been any doubt about what I wanted to do with my life. Engineers with their creativity, application of science and logical thinking work to create technology in order to redefine our lives and society.
My interest in engineering has developed over the course of my education and I enjoy the challenge of using my intellectual curiosity to solve everyday problems. To provide an….

Origin of Anatomically Modern Humans
The curiosity to study origin and birth of human beings has shaped a holistic subject, paleoanthropology, which mainly focuses on the origin of modern human beings or Homo sapiens (Matthew and Nitecki, 1994).For about 30,000 years, the Earth has been inhabited by humans that carry anatomical and behavioral uniformity. The situation70,000 years before was clearly different and diverse groups of hominids preceded the modern Homo sapiens; in Asia Homo erectus prospered while in Europe and the East there were Homone, erthalensis and Homo sapiens, respectively. The different populations of humans differed in their bodily phenotypes or anatomy studied through fossil record that was obtained through archaeological mining. Theories to explain this transformation have been proposed: one that suggests a single origin forall modern humansi.e., the Out-of-Africa model, and another proposing Multiregional Continuity.

Genetic studies have indicated that the last ancestor common between chimpanzees and humans lived about….


Alice in Wonderland as Victorian Literature -- Being a child in Victorian England was difficult. They had to behave like the adults did, follow all rules, they had to be seen but not heard. Children, however, are naturally curious; unable to sit for long periods of time, and as part of normal cognitive development, consistently asking questions about the world. In fact, childhood is the period when a child acquires the knowledge needed to perform as an adult. It is the experiences of childhood that the personality of the adult is constructed. Alice's adventures, then, are really more of a set of curiosities that Carroll believed children share. Why is this, who is this, how does this work? and, her journey through Wonderland, somewhat symbolic of a type of "Garden of Eden," combines stark realities that would be necessary for her transition to adulthood.

For Victorians, control was part of not….

Lee's motion picture is largely meant to put across the confusion present in some people's lives, as it is not necessarily meant to discuss race-related matters.
Lee's film brings reform into a world that is accustomed to respecting traditions when it comes to racial stereotypes. Through watching this film, people are likely to consider that race is not important when taking into account a relationship. Factors that would normally make people feel that they belong to separate worlds can actually make them consider that they need to stay together. Lee's version of interracial relationships makes it possible for viewers to comprehend that two people can strengthen their relationship as a consequence of having society impose its discriminatory attitudes on them. At the point where their families reject them, Flipper and Angela decide to move together hoping that this would put an end to their problems and considering that it is….


Just as their problems are caused by humans, their problems can also be solved by humans. This fact is exemplified by the existence of politics, where people learn to befriend and utilize people who would otherwise do them harm. Skill at politics, as Shorris noted, is what distinguished the rich from the poor: "Rich people know…how to negotiate instead of using force. They know how to use politics to get along, to get power. (5).

The Return to the Cave

In the third section of the allegory, Socrates speculates on what would happen if this former prisoner were to return to the cave. Having seen the light, he will have been happy for his edification and piteous of those stuck in the cave, believing their lives dark and ignorant. If he were to return to the cave, he would not be as content as he was when he was previously imprisoned there.….

hopeless in the face of the challenge, forgetting that all people have assets to help them deal with the challenges of everyday life. The goal of a personal strength and asset survey is to help make a person consciously aware of personal strengths and assets so that, when a challenging situation does arise, the person already knows the strengths and abilities that he or she possesses that will help him or her deal with the challenge. Therefore, my goal in conducting an assessment of my personal strengths and assets is to identify my strengths and assets, identify potential future challenges, prepare for future challenges, determine which of my strengths and assets would be appropriate when dealing with specific future challenges.
Assets and Strengths

There are several different objective ways to determine personal strengths, and these methods are important because a person's own perception about personal strengths may not reflect the reality.….

Global Mindsets
Importance of the Global Mindset

I agree with the assertion made by Cohen that possessing a global mindset is a key and integral part to being successful in business, particularly if global expansion is an organizational goal or aspiration. To be successful in today's marketplace, leaders must understand that the world is no longer made up of only local/regional/national customers and competitors. It has been shaped by the digitized age we live in. Customers come from everywhere, for just about everything. Similarly, competition does too. This means to be truly successful, business leaders must know how to integrate a number of geographies, cultures, demographics, tastes, preferences, and business strategies from across the globe (Gumbel 2008). Leaders need an appreciation for diverse business relationships and more specialized skills to achieve their goals.

Universal cooperation is a daily business reality. The vast majority of this is due to technological advancement and the new….

" (Avogadro)
His most well-known contribution to the field of chemistry was the statement titled; the Avogadro constant or Avogadro number. Avogadro stated that "a mole equals 6.022 x 1023." (American) It also states that equal volumes of gases, at the same temperature and pressure have the same amount of molecules.

Avogadro's number really means the number of molecules in a mole. His number is essential in chemistry because it calculates the amount of pure substances in stoichiometric relationships. It also determines how much heavier a simple molecule of one gas is than that of another. This number is also very large 6.0221367x10^23. However, Avogadro only hypothesized this and he was not responsible for calculating it, Loschmidt was. (Furtsch)

Even though, Avogadro was not fully responsible for the discovery of the mole, he did solve many controversies and gathered enough research for other scientists, like Loschmidt, to calculate. His curiosity led him to….

Water Cycle the Water or
PAGES 2 WORDS 726


Questions: Why are there different forms of precipitation? Why would it make sense that the water cycle regulates the amount of water on earth?

Actvities: Analyze different forms of precpitation by following a drop of water through water cycle. Why is it important that some water be stored in ice or snowpacks? (See: http://www.proteacher.com/redirect.php?goto=5347)

Questions: What impact has civilization had on the water cycle? Are there dangers to irrigation or transforming arid areas into agriculutural areas? What about the polar ice caps?

Activities: Using gained knowledge, chart the amount of water….

Cal Tech Engineering
The prospect of studying engineering is exciting to me because I have an unquenchable thirst to get to the bottom of things, and engineering provides the framework and tools to analyze and address the scientific issues that fascinate me. More importantly, it provides the ideal opportunity to apply my scientific and math-oriented skills in ways that will make a difference in the world.

For the last year, I have worked as a computer programmer in the IT branch of the Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem (ARIJ) contributing to the development of information technology in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Together with the rest of the programming team of the "GPS Palestine" program, I worked to develop a functional GPS system within the Occupied Palestinian Territory. The project began after the Israeli telecommunication companies launched an integrated GPS system functioning with various smart phones such as the iPhone 4. We started….

Museums Bid for Bodies
PAGES 4 WORDS 1758

Speech: Museum's Bid For Bodies
Good evening ladies -- and yes, good evening gentleman as well.

Well, where should we begin? Ahhhh yes -- Are any of you aware of what a cadaver parade is? Have any of you ever actually heard of a cadaver parade?

Let me read to you a recent headline that I discovered: "Anatomy of competition: 2 museums bid for bodies -- what is a bid -- it is an offer or a proposal of a price."

What do you think about that? (Pause) My initial thoughts after reading those words were: "This is unbelievable, no, it is downright shocking, shameful, and certainly very offensive.

When was the last time a price was hung on us human beings? You probably already know, that's right -- During the days of Slavery. (Pause) Am I right?

I believe that the practice attaching a price to the human body is a mockery at best? Consider….

Competence of a Corporation
Accurate comprehension of the article = blue

Critical analysis of the strengths and weakness of the ideas, concepts or theories = yellow

* Provision of specific comments in the form of criticism, disagreement, synthesis, paradox, curiosity or genuine confusion= green

The premise of the article The core competence of the corporation (Prahalad, Hamel, 1990) is predicated on the assumption of greater communication and collaboration, coupled with accountability on the part of senior managers, leading to organizations discovering their core competencies. The authors make the point that core competence has more to do with communication, involvement and a deep commitment to work across organizational borders (Prahalad, Hamel, 1990). Using examples from Canon, GE, NEC and others, the authors look to support these core concepts with examples and illustrations.

Intersection theory, in abstract terms, is a complex mathematical framework used in algebraic geometry to understand the intricate "meetings" between shapes within a mathematical space. While its roots and applications stem from the world of shapes and equations, it can be viewed through a more metaphorical lens to gain insights into human experiences. Here's how:

Understanding Intersection:

  • Imagine two overlapping circles: Their intersection represents shared experiences, common ground, or areas of mutual understanding between two individuals. Intersection theory, in this metaphor, provides tools to quantify and analyze these overlaps, their complexities, and how they influence the overall experience.

How it helps:

  • Empathy and Perspective: By studying the "intersections" of lived....
