Research On Vigilance And Sustained Attention
Introduction:
Studies on vigilance and sustained attention have been a widely studied part of psychology since the
Second World War. This is because it was found that people monitoring radars for enemy ships
experienced what is now known as vigilance decrement. That is when the ability of a subject to
detect an abnormality during a task which primarily displays a "normal" screen. In the case of WWII
radar monitors, this was to detect when an enemy submarine entered the radar. (Helton, W. S. &
Russell, P. N. (2012). ) After a short time, typically 20–30 minutes but in certain cases as little as 5
minutes, vigilance decrement can occur. (Caggio, D. M., & Parasuraman, R. (2004)). There are two
main theories commonly cited to explain this phenomenon, mindless theory and resource theory.
Resource theory says that the vigilance decrement is due to the exhaustion of brain resources
required to maintain focus on the task. Mindless theory simply explains vigilance depletion as being
caused by disengagement from the task due to boredom. (Helton, W. S. & Russell, P. N. (2012).)
The two theories explain the same phenomenon much differently; resource theory says it's caused in
part by cognitive overload, while mindless theory suggests it's caused by cognitive under–load
causing boredom. (Helton, W. S., & Russell, P. N. (2015)). Resource theory is strongly supported by
a wide array of evidence from behavioural studies, mental workload studies, and brain imaging
studies. When the

Review of Sequences in CPM Common Core Integrated 1 and MacDougal Littel Algebra 2
The introduction and understanding of sequences, arithmetic and geometric in 8th grade was
reviewed for content and standards in CPM CC Integrated 1 and MacDougall Littel Algebra 2.
Sequences are defined as an ordered list of numbers that are in a specific pattern. Arithmetic
Sequences are an ordered list of numbers where the difference between successive numbers is a
constant value. Geometric sequences are an ordered list of numbers where the successive numbers
differ by a common ratio.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. In each section 5.2.1–5.2.3 the students are
required to make sense as a group and persevere in solving the problems. Example of the practice is
seen in 5.2.1 5–42, 5.2.2 5–59, and 5.2.3 5–74. Each problem in this text is recommended that the
students work in groups and there are no formulas, or rules given until the students have reasoned
out the problem and solved as a group. By having the student reason and understand, then persevere,
the student gains an understanding of the concept in sequences rather that the rule. Given that many

Query Sequence And Analysis Of Verify3d
According to the model evaluation program Verify3D, 80.00% of the amino acid residues in this
homology model had an average 3D–1D score greater than 0.2, which qualifies it as a passing model
(Lüthy et al., 1992). However, between residues 44–66 on the Verify3D plot, the score dips below
the 0.2 threshold, falling as low as –0.04. This can be explained by the fact that when aligned
against each other, the query sequence and template sequence consist of different types of amino
acid residues in this range (Table 1). The query sequence consists of the residues
YTAEADGNTIFTKTIPSGITISA, while the template sequence 4IPU_A consists of the residues
KDWGKGLSIGVLASGSIAAPLRK. After analyzing these two aligned sequences, some stark

Moreover, based on ProSA's local plot, the model displays low energy scores (negative delta g)
throughout most of the plot in the template sequence, indicating a highly favorable model.
Additionally, as shown in figure 1, for this template model, ProQ3 shows a ProQ3D score of .659
(Uziela et al., 2017). Similarly, as shown in figure 2, for the experimentally determined structure of
this template (PDB ID: 4IPU), ProQ3 shows a ProQ3D score of .537. Since the template model
scored slightly higher than the known structure and is closer to 1, the model generated can be
deemed as acceptable. Overall, given the positive results of most of these these evaluation programs,
it can be concluded that the template model 4IPU_A is likely reliable and gives a highly accurate
alignment.
According to the model evaluation program Verify3D, 79.63% of the amino acid residues in this
homology model had an average 3D–1D score greater than 0.2, which qualifies it as a "warning"
model (Lüthy et al., 1992). This indicates that it may be a reliable model, but other evaluation
programs must be used in order to verify this. Between residues 19–32 and 65–71 on the Verify3D
plot, the score dips below the 0.2 threshold, falling as low as 0.04. This can be explained by the fact
that when aligned against each other, the query sequence and template sequence consist of different

Analysis Of Shakespeare In Love
The film Shakespeare in Love is a wonderful movie directed by John Madden. The film seems
pretty straightforward at the beginning, but there are subtle things that make the film more enticing.
John Madden added these things to make the film look and feel more real. I will be discussing more
about this film white discussing its impact on myself and the audience.
This film was set during 1590`s and that is a very important fact that must be remembered while
reviewing, especially when thinking of Madden's vision of the film while directing. In the opening
sequence, we see the director using subtle hints that help set the tone of the film. The opening
credits are in black and white and because of this, we know that the film is set in an early time
period. This, as well as the font, is what we would associate with old England. Although this was an
interesting effect used to create the setting, the opening sequence as a whole, was extremely boring.
Even though it was boring, the music was there to fill the gap and not leave the audience lulled to
sleep. The instruments chosen and the frequent melodic tones helped further shape the setting of old
England. It is obvious that Madden loved music because it is almost omni–present throughout the
film. The instruments are mostly string instruments which are often accredited to classical music.
The pitch, the tempo, and the loudness of the music play major roles along with the selection of
instruments. If there is an important part of

The Philosopher's Stone vs. The Deathly Hallows: Part 2
Arguably, the most intriguing part of the series is that though the plot is constantly changing, the
feeling the audience gets from each film is the same. Consequently, the series needed some sort of
closure that showed the evolution of the series in a visually, cinematic way. This is why the eighth
film being a refined reflection of the first film is understandable and may actually have been needed
to bring the series full circle.
Nearly each aspect of the eighth film resembles a moment in the first film, but carries a matured and
sometimes opposing purpose in comparison. (See Figure 9A, B) This comparative analysis will be
comprehensive rather than scene specific because the parallels deal with Classic cinematography
that doesn't require extensive explanation and can easily be seen in the in–text screenshots of the
films. Instead, the analysis will be more about how the cinematic parallels have evolved in the final
film and how the distinction between first and last demonstrates why they are opposites.

Red is a color that evokes emotion and draws the eye, so in its sporadic occurrences, one's eyes are
drawn to the text in the ad and more importantly to the name of the guest star. The second design
element is line. Line is used in this scene to break apart the buildings and windows within, and
really focus the geometric shapes. Although the lines are soft and light in weight, aside from the
outer most lines of the buildings, which are hard but still thin, they are uniform in their clear
representation of the shape of the buildings and the windows. These lines depict a vertical and
horizontal relationship from the dimensions of the building and windows. From the angle of the
scene in discussion, the horizontal lines appear diagonal converging on each other at the corners of
the buildings and windows. These converging lines at the top of the buildings demonstrate a focal
point brought upon by the location of emphasis (Hemmis 2013). The lines of the building are
enclosed to the achromatic background to separate them from the background and divide the
pictorial space. The only lines that are curved in this scene appear in the ads and the form of the

The SSCQE is also a family of single stimulus like ACR and ACR–HR. The methods selected a

However, the test video sequence is very long, it results in a problem of the test method that it will

Analysis Of William Shakespeare 's Romeo And Juliet
Introduction "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell just as
sweet." This quote from Shakespeare is from the balcony scene when Juliet tells Romeo that his
name is meaningless and that he is still a handsome young man and that only their family names are
enemies. This same quote can be applied in today's society in how people address each other based
on different situations, especially when addressing women. There are many different titles that can
be used to address women as opposed to men, but despite the title used, the woman herself does not
change. Only the meaning and stereotype associated with the title used changes.
Throughout the years, the titles used to address women have slowly shifted meaning from that of a
social status to that of a marital status. Erickson (2014) explains that the titles "Miss" and "Mrs." are
the oldest coined terms used to address women, and both of them derive from the title "Mistress."
Both titles were generally only used for those of higher power and status. "Miss" described young
girls while "Mrs.", described women who had governed subjects, was skilled, or who taught. Upon
reaching adulthood, a "Miss" became a "Mrs.", and according to the Oxford English Dictionary, it
was common for older, unmarried women to still use the title "Mrs." so they could increase their
standing to be on par with married women. This was why sometimes this referred to as a "title of
politeness" or "courtesy title." But by the

For a better overview I write everything down again: n = 9 d = $ 25 a1 = $ 100 a9 = ?
I use the following formula to find out a9: an = a1 + (n – 1)d
Now we put the numbers we have into the formula: a9 = 100 + (9–1)(25) a9 = 100 + 8(25) a9 = 100
+ 200 a9 = 300 a9= $ 300
Now that we have a9 we can we can calculate the costs for a 90–foot–tower with the following
formula:
Sn = n(a1 + a n) / 2
S9 = 9(100 + 300) / 2
S9 = 9(400) / 2
S9 = 4.5(400)
S9= 1,800
S9 = $ 1,800
The cost for a 90–foot–CB–tower will be $ 1,800.
This exercise involves an arithmetic sequence because the cost of the labor for each succeeding 10
feet is $25 more than the preceding 10 feet. The first 10 feet the cost of the labor is $ 100. The next

Essay on Stanhope in Journey's End by RC Sheriff
Stanhope in Journey's End
How does Sherriff develop our understanding of Stanhope in Act One?
Introduction
Stanhope is considered by the men to be 'the best company commander
[they've] got.' However under the pressure of the Great War, Stanhope has changed into a different
man, and has turned to drinking alcohol to take away the fear and pain of War. At the beginning of
the play,
Sherriff chooses not to introduce the audience to Stanhope. Instead, the audience builds their own
picture of Stanhope through the differing views of the men in his company. Hardy's strong
description of Stanhope, forces the viewer to build a picture of 'a freak show exhibit.' However, this
view is opposed by Osborne, who argues that ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

'He's a long way the best company commander we've got.' – Osborne

'When a boy like Stanhope gets a reputation out here for drinking, he turns into a kind of freak show
exhibit.' – Osborne [Page 5]
'Young Stanhope goes on sticking it, month in, month out.' – Osborne
[Page 6]
'There isn't a man to touch him as commander of the men.' – Osborne
[Page 6]
'He's so fussy about the trenches.' – Hardy [Page 7]
'He was skipper of Rugger... and kept wicket for the eleven. A jolly good bat, too.' – Raleigh [Page

'You mustn't expect to find him – quite the same.' – Osborne [Page 13]
'It's a big strain on a man.' – Osborne [Page 13]
'He's a little bit quick–tempered.' – Osborne [Page 13]
Conclusion
R.C Sherriff employs a very clever writing style in Journey's End, to describe Stanhope to the
audience. Before actually meeting Stanhope, the reader is left to make their own decision about
Stanhope's character. The opinions that are given of Stanhope by the other characters are fairly
accurate. Hardy's description appears to be correct at first, when Stanhope enters; his first words
being 'Damn the soup, bring some whisky.' He uses the drink to escape from the problems of war
around him. The 'quick–temper' that Osborne described is also shown to the audience in this part of

Unit 36 Research Paper
Although there are quite a few ways to arrange the given variables to get 36, the first equation that

corresponding variable for 3 to add to 33 and balance the equation. Though I chose to go this route,
as stated in my opening, there are many ways to get 36 with the given values. These values range
from 0–11 and some of them, as we know, are factors of 36 (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 9). The fact that so
many of the values are factors is a clear indication that there is definitely, as the old adage says,
"more than one way to skin the cat". To form an equation we have the following options. We can (a)
choose a complete factor set from the list of values which would form a quick and neat equation like
6^2=36, 6*6=36, and 9*4=36, or (b) pick one of the other variables whose value is not a part of a
complete factor set, in which case the equation would be more complex, but one could easily
manipulate it by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing a combination of the other variables

Does Cognitive Bias Influence The Patterns We Exist?
"Humans are pattern seeking animals and we are adept at finding patterns whether they exist or not"
(adapted from Michael Shermer). Discuss knowledge questions raised by this idea in two areas of
knowledge.
My knowledge question is to what extent does cognitive bias influence the patterns we see in life?
Cognitive bias is defined as pattern of distortion in perception and a deviation from rational
decision; irrationality Decision–making, belief and behavioral biases. If a person was to look into
human sciences and mathematics as ways of knowing, he or she would determine that cognitive bias
is present every time a person sees a pattern. However, they are unable to see the bias for themselves
because of the selectivity of perception. Human sciences will be beneficial in answering this
question because looking at studies and experiments previously done on the subject would give
insight into cases in which people use cognitive bias. Fallacies such as the bandwagon effect and the
ambiguity effect could be seen in experiments to help prove or disprove the claim. Mathematics as
an area of knowledge is helpful because it uses logic and reason through values and shapes to
present patterns and it is the most common form of patterns. Also in math we can look at imaginary
and irrational numbers as well as geometry to determine if cognitive bias causes pareidolia in logical
patterns.

The New York Times, By Jon M. Gibson
Introduction Kyle Cooper is one of the most prominent and influential designers of both the 20th
and 21st centuries. As Jon M. Gibson states, his title sequences have, "...brought attention to an art
form that has long been considered an afterthought...". With more than 150 title sequences, five
Emmy nominations, the Title of Honorary Royal Designer and the winner of the AIGA medal in
2014, Cooper has become a huge affect with title designers in the 21st century. His creation of the
title sequence for Se7en (1995) is what brought the limelight to Cooper, after having such a success
with both the public and filmmakers all around the world. The New York Times went so far as to say
that this specific title sequence was one of the most important design innovations of the 1990s.
Influenced by the works of Pablo Ferro, Saul Bass, Stephen Frankfurt and Maurice Binder, Cooper's
style and designs changed the way in which title sequences for movies, series and video games are
done nowadays, by evoking a revival in the importance of a meaningful and well–designed title;
something that had been gradually lost in the previous decades.
Pre Se7en Era As a child, Cooper was highly influenced by American horror films and horror comic
books, which would leave him with an idea of "...evil as an active, supernatural force in the
world."A motif that is clearly seen in his work, as his sequences usually include depictions of evil or
have dark undertones, like in Arlington Road (1999), where Cooper

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Renting Vs. Owning A Home
Personal Finance Unit Five
a. Describe in detail the advantages and disadvantages of renting versus owning a home.
The advantage of renting a dwelling is the lack of time commitment required. If a lease is required,
it may be for a one–year term. If the situation is not agreeable to the tenant, or the tenant needs to
relocate out of the area, or prefers a different location, the option to move is available without a
penalty. Some rental units may be available on a monthly basis. While many rental agreements
require a security deposit, that deposit would be significantly less than a down payment and loan
closing costs required for the purchase of a residence. While the rental amount may cover the
owner's cost of insurance, maintenance, and taxes, they are not the direct responsibility the tenant.
Maintenance and repairs are also the responsibility of the property owner not the tenant. A tenant
has much less responsibility than the property owner.
The disadvantages of renting can be the restrictions set forth by the landlord or property owner.

The Discovery Of The Logarithm
The Contributors of Logarithms
The discovery of the logarithm is a great mathematics breakthrough made by John Napier and Joost
Burgi. These two mathematicians had different concepts of the logarithms and its present use today.
John Napier's logarithms were published in 1614, while six years later, in 1620, Burgi's logarithms
were published (A REVIEW OF LOGARITHMS 2016). Both Napier and Burgi invented logarithms
in order to simplify mathematical calculations. To reach their goals, they used two different
methods; Napier used the algebraic method and Burgi used the geometric method. Although these
two men had discovered logarithms, they did not have the concept of a logarithmic base. The current
definition defines a logarithm as "the power ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Originally, the exponent notation was not used, but was a further developed method to explain
Burgi's concept. In conclusion, Burgi's discovery of relating geometric and arithmetic series is the
reason why he has a great contributor to the development of logarithms.
The other important contributor to the development of logarithms in 1614 was John Napier, a
Scottish mathematician. His incentive was to help in the multiplication of sine quantities. The entire
sine was the value of the side calculated of a right angle triangle with a large hypotenuse. In
participation with the English mathematician Henry Briggs, Napier transformed his logarithm into
its present day shape. The comparison of logarithms is between an L point moving consistently
minus infinity, and an X point moving from zero towards infinity at a speed proportional to its
distance from zero. Napier's discovery made a general relation between the arithmetic and geometric
series; i.e., multiplication and rising to a power of the values of the X point correspond to addition
and multiplication of the values of the L point, respectively (John Napier and logarithms 2016). For
instance, in order to limit the L and X motion, the requirement is that L=1 at X=10, additionally to
that condition that X=1 at L=0. The change had contributed to the logarithm known as the Briggsian
at that time (Logarithms: The Early History of a

Analysis Of The Movie ' Workplace Tension '
Workplace Tension
In his 1916 silent–film Intolerance, D.W. Griffith pioneered editing techniques that helped establish
montage as a core component of film language. Griffith set out to unite four disparate storylines
under the common theme of love's eternal battle with intolerance. While Griffith believed this film
achieved its goal, some of his contemporaries argued that Intolerance was a "magnificent failure"
(Eisenstein, 241). Indeed, Eisenstein proposed that the unification Griffith sought to create was
impossible because the juxtaposition of these stories did not create new meaning. Instead, Eisenstein
wrote that the lack of conflict between shots prevented the synthesis of a higher meaning, or
montage trope. While it is true that Intolerance generally does not accomplish montage trope,
especially when referencing Walt Whitman's Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, where Griffith
explicitly attempts it, there are examples of its implementation. Griffith does manage to achieve this
higher meaning in the scene depicting a labor strike. Eisenstein's claim that Griffith never
incorporates montage tropes into his films is false as demonstrated by the social criticism in the
juxtaposition of the striking mill workers and Mr. Jenkins.
Eisenstein describes montage trope as the juxtaposition of images resulting in a greater abstract
meaning. By abstract, Eisenstein means that the significance of the juxtaposition is not confined to
the individual images on the screen.

just babbling and pointing at objects, loud noises caused them to shut down and cover their ears,
lining up objects and any little disturbance in their routine caused them to have a tantrum or

First aired in January 2008, AMC's Breaking Bad, was when audiences were initially introduced to

unsuccessful high school chemistry teacher. The poorly remunerated and disrespected educator is

The narrative complexity in Breaking Bad owes also to the show's enigmatic and transformative
characters. Walt is depicted as an upstanding family man, working two jobs to provide for his family
and enriching young minds as a teacher. However, in the first three episodes Walt's character
changes are dramatic.
The first episode of the show features a scene in which Walt discusses the concepts of chemistry and
specifically the notion of chemistry phases of change to his high school students. This analogy of
chemical change can appropriately be adapted to understand Walt's psychological changes.
The audience is presented with a man who is depicted as a victim of modern day society. Analogous
to many other individuals, Walt is the breadwinner in the White family with financial struggles such
that his teacher's compensation is not enough to cover his expenses. Furthermore, he is a man
having just been diagnosed with terminal cancer and in his turmoil experiences a moment of

In a traditional narrative we expect to see characters that have prominent roles in the film to be in
the opening sequence; also you'd expect the story contained in the opening sequence to be followed

Therefore we are set up with the expectation of what happens next? In a traditional linear narrative
this is a question which is likely to be answered. However in Pulp Fiction the next scene contains
different characters and a different plot. We do not return to the opening story till the end of the film.
The next scene contains the opening credits. The music is upbeat and compliments the emotional
intensity of the two thieves' situation. The music also suggests we are still with the two thieves'

From the opening credits, with their white–on–black minimalism and the stealthy, suggestive music,

fantastic mind blowing effects movies. Jilla was initially released in January, 2014 and it was
appreciated by the audience.
To make my opening title sequence I watched the movie several times. Each time I watched it, I
critically look at the way the text, effects, sounds, and actions were set up.
I started to take note, and create my storyboard. I research the original movie but I wanted my idea
to be unique and purely my imagination. It wasn't very difficult for me as I have completed a movie
project before.
How did I create the appropriate movie composition sequence?
To make sure that I have created an appropriate movie composition sequence I have made a check
list. I continually tick boxes till I had everything completed. My check list included frame rate,
resolution or safe areas of my title sequence.
RESOLUTION
Width: 1280px; Height: 720px; Frame rate: 24; Duration: 00.30.00 seconds
This is the size for the footage I am going to use:

Show Title Sequence
Before every great television show, there is a great title sequence giving the audience a peek into the
show. The main job of the title sequence is to capture our attention before we actually get the chance
to watch the actual show. A title sequence is a visual program that presents the title of the television
show. Title sequences use key production and cast members, using idea–based sound. It usually has
the text of the opening credits, like who's involved in the production and helps establish the setting
and tone of the program. For example, in television shows where the theme is horror, there are
usually vivid and sharp illustrations of things that would make the general public somewhat afraid to
watch. As if the scenes wasn't enough the ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
As the music goes on, the constant loud bang of the drum adds that scary effect that you don't know
what's going to happen next. The sound of a train and furnaces firing up are amongst a few which
add a heavier eerie feel to the sequence. The editing can be seen that throughout the sequence a filter
was put on top of the film, as well as this many of the shots have a blur around the edges. This effect
could connotate the feelings of the main character when he first comes out of the coma. A time–
lapse shot has also been used from 0:09 to 0:11 to convey the many years that have passed since he
has been in the coma. Many of the cuts are raw and sudden, the shot will go from landscape (wide
shot) to a extreme close–up. Once again foreshadowing the events to come, this could mirror the act
of the zombies suddenly appearing. lump cuts are also used In scenes of an abandoned house, giving
a Jarring effect to the pace. The titles appear amongst the scene, sometimes moving. The final title
'The Walking Dead' flickers into shot over a green background that fades to black at the edges. The
use of mise–en–scene in this sequence evokes anticipation in the audience. The post–apocalyptic
world is conveyed through micro elements such as, the bare and dirty decor of the abandoned house
and the low–key dingy lighting. The contrast of natural and low key

GRAPHING TRIGONOMETRIC
FUNCTIONS
Amplitude, Period, Phase Shift, Horizontal Shift of Sine and Cosine
DEFINITION
The trigonometric functions are functions of an angle. They relate the angles of a triangle to the
lengths of its sides. Trigonometric functions are important in the study of triangles and modeling
periodic phenomena, among many other application. Amplitude is half the distance between the
minimum and maximum values of the range of a periodic function with a bounded range. A graph
that repeats after a fixed interval, which is a period, of the independent variable. Horizontal shift is
obtained by determining the change being made to the x value. A phase shift represents the ... Show

Research On Vigilance And Sustained Attention

  • 1. Research On Vigilance And Sustained Attention Introduction: Studies on vigilance and sustained attention have been a widely studied part of psychology since the Second World War. This is because it was found that people monitoring radars for enemy ships experienced what is now known as vigilance decrement. That is when the ability of a subject to detect an abnormality during a task which primarily displays a "normal" screen. In the case of WWII radar monitors, this was to detect when an enemy submarine entered the radar. (Helton, W. S. & Russell, P. N. (2012). ) After a short time, typically 20–30 minutes but in certain cases as little as 5 minutes, vigilance decrement can occur. (Caggio, D. M., & Parasuraman, R. (2004)). There are two main theories commonly cited to explain this phenomenon, mindless theory and resource theory. Resource theory says that the vigilance decrement is due to the exhaustion of brain resources required to maintain focus on the task. Mindless theory simply explains vigilance depletion as being caused by disengagement from the task due to boredom. (Helton, W. S. & Russell, P. N. (2012).) The two theories explain the same phenomenon much differently; resource theory says it's caused in part by cognitive overload, while mindless theory suggests it's caused by cognitive under–load causing boredom. (Helton, W. S., & Russell, P. N. (2015)). Resource theory is strongly supported by a wide array of evidence from behavioural studies, mental workload studies, and brain imaging studies. When the ...

Sequences are defined as an ordered list of numbers that are in a specific pattern.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. In each section 5.2.1–5.2.3 the students are required to make sense as a group and persevere in solving the problems. Example of the practice is seen in 5.2.1 5–42, 5.2.2 5–59, and 5.2.3 5–74. Each problem in this text is recommended that the students work in groups and there are no formulas, or rules given until the students have reasoned out the problem and solved as a group. By having the student reason and understand, then persevere, the student gains an understanding of the concept in sequences rather that the rule. Given that many of the lesson plans are built around the students making sense of conceptual problems this practice seems to be the focus of the sections.

Query Sequence And Analysis Of Verify3d According to the model evaluation program Verify3D, 80.00% of the amino acid residues in this homology model had an average 3D–1D score greater than 0.2, which qualifies it as a passing model (Lüthy et al., 1992). However, between residues 44–66 on the Verify3D plot, the score dips below the 0.2 threshold, falling as low as –0.04. This can be explained by the fact that when aligned against each other, the query sequence and template sequence consist of different types of amino acid residues in this range (Table 1). The query sequence consists of the residues YTAEADGNTIFTKTIPSGITISA, while the template sequence 4IPU_A consists of the residues KDWGKGLSIGVLASGSIAAPLRK. After analyzing these two aligned sequences, some stark differences ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Moreover, based on ProSA's local plot, the model displays low energy scores (negative delta g) throughout most of the plot in the template sequence, indicating a highly favorable model. Additionally, as shown in figure 1, for this template model, ProQ3 shows a ProQ3D score of .659 (Uziela et al., 2017). Similarly, as shown in figure 2, for the experimentally determined structure of this template (PDB ID: 4IPU), ProQ3 shows a ProQ3D score of .537. Since the template model scored slightly higher than the known structure and is closer to 1, the model generated can be deemed as acceptable. Overall, given the positive results of most of these these evaluation programs, it can be concluded that the template model 4IPU_A is likely reliable and gives a highly accurate alignment. According to the model evaluation program Verify3D, 79.63% of the amino acid residues in this homology model had an average 3D–1D score greater than 0.2, which qualifies it as a "warning" model (Lüthy et al., 1992). This indicates that it may be a reliable model, but other evaluation programs must be used in order to verify this. Between residues 19–32 and 65–71 on the Verify3D plot, the score dips below the 0.2 threshold, falling as low as 0.04. This can be explained by the fact that when aligned against each other, the query sequence and template sequence consist of different types ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 13. Analysis Of Shakespeare In Love The film Shakespeare in Love is a wonderful movie directed by John Madden. The film seems pretty straightforward at the beginning, but there are subtle things that make the film more enticing. John Madden added these things to make the film look and feel more real. I will be discussing more about this film white discussing its impact on myself and the audience. This film was set during 1590`s and that is a very important fact that must be remembered while reviewing, especially when thinking of Madden's vision of the film while directing. In the opening sequence, we see the director using subtle hints that help set the tone of the film. The opening credits are in black and white and because of this, we know that the film is set in an early time period. This, as well as the font, is what we would associate with old England. Although this was an interesting effect used to create the setting, the opening sequence as a whole, was extremely boring. Even though it was boring, the music was there to fill the gap and not leave the audience lulled to sleep. The instruments chosen and the frequent melodic tones helped further shape the setting of old England. It is obvious that Madden loved music because it is almost omni–present throughout the film. The instruments are mostly string instruments which are often accredited to classical music. The pitch, the tempo, and the loudness of the music play major roles along with the selection of instruments. If there is an important part of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The Philosopher's Stone vs. The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Arguably, the most intriguing part of the series is that though the plot is constantly changing, the feeling the audience gets from each film is the same. Consequently, the series needed some sort of closure that showed the evolution of the series in a visually, cinematic way. This is why the eighth film being a refined reflection of the first film is understandable and may actually have been needed to bring the series full circle. Nearly each aspect of the eighth film resembles a moment in the first film, but carries a matured and sometimes opposing purpose in comparison. (See Figure 9A, B) This comparative analysis will be comprehensive rather than scene specific because the parallels deal with Classic cinematography that doesn't require extensive explanation and can easily be seen in the in–text screenshots of the films. Instead, the analysis will be more about how the cinematic parallels have evolved in the final film and how the distinction between first and last demonstrates why they are opposites.

It means the theme of the book, e.t.c. and in the case of a film or programme means either horror, thriller, comedy, romantic. It is important that a programme or film makes clear what genre it is.

A whistle then blows, and the mans face lights up as he exits to the left. The eagerness he expresses to leave, indicates he is related somehow to the previous boy, as he was also keen to exit and did not like working.

Red is a color that evokes emotion and draws the eye, so in its sporadic occurrences, one's eyes are drawn to the text in the ad and more importantly to the name of the guest star. The second design element is line. Line is used in this scene to break apart the buildings and windows within, and really focus the geometric shapes. Although the lines are soft and light in weight, aside from the outer most lines of the buildings, which are hard but still thin, they are uniform in their clear representation of the shape of the buildings and the windows. These lines depict a vertical and horizontal relationship from the dimensions of the building and windows. From the angle of the scene in discussion, the horizontal lines appear diagonal converging on each other at the corners of the buildings and windows. These converging lines at the top of the buildings demonstrate a focal point brought upon by the location of emphasis (Hemmis 2013). The lines of the building are enclosed to the achromatic background to separate them from the background and divide the pictorial space. The only lines that are curved in this scene appear in the ads and the form of the free–falling man. The final element is shape. The shapes in this scene are primarily geometric.

This quote from Shakespeare is from the balcony scene when Juliet tells Romeo that his name is meaningless and that he is still a handsome young man and that only their family names are enemies. This same quote can be applied in today's society in how people address each other based on different situations, especially when addressing women. There are many different titles that can be used to address women as opposed to men, but despite the title used, the woman herself does not change. Only the meaning and stereotype associated with the title used changes. Throughout the years, the titles used to address women have slowly shifted meaning from that of a social status to that of a marital status. Erickson (2014) explains that the titles "Miss" and "Mrs." are the oldest coined terms used to address women, and both of them derive from the title "Mistress." Both titles were generally only used for those of higher power and status. "Miss" described young girls while "Mrs.", described women who had governed subjects, was skilled, or who taught. Upon reaching adulthood, a "Miss" became a "Mrs.", and according to the Oxford English Dictionary, it was common for older, unmarried women to still use the title "Mrs." so they could increase their standing to be on par with married women. This was why sometimes this referred to as a "title of politeness" or "courtesy title." But by the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

However under the pressure of the Great War, Stanhope has changed into a different man, and has turned to drinking alcohol to take away the fear and pain of War. At the beginning of the play, Sherriff chooses not to introduce the audience to Stanhope.

Hardy's description appears to be correct at first, when Stanhope enters; his first words being 'Damn the soup, bring some whisky.' He uses the drink to escape from the problems of war around him.

Unit 36 Research Paper Although there are quite a few ways to arrange the given variables to get 36, the first equation that pops into my mind is: 3N+D=36 When I read through the list of variables, I settled on the very last one, N=11, and divided 36 by it to get 3r3. I, then, scanned back over the list of values to find the corresponding variable for 3 to add to 33 and balance the equation. Though I chose to go this route, as stated in my opening, there are many ways to get 36 with the given values. These values range from 0–11 and some of them, as we know, are factors of 36 (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 9). The fact that so many of the values are factors is a clear indication that there is definitely, as the old adage says, "more than one way to skin the cat". To form an equation we have the following options. We can (a) choose a complete factor set from the list of values which would form a quick and neat equation like 6^2=36, 6*6=36, and 9*4=36, or (b) pick one of the other variables whose value is not a part of a complete factor set, in which case the equation would be more complex, but one could easily manipulate it by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing a combination of the other variables until the equation is balanced. ...

Discuss knowledge questions raised by this idea in two areas of knowledge. My knowledge question is to what extent does cognitive bias influence the patterns we see in life? Cognitive bias is defined as pattern of distortion in perception and a deviation from rational decision; irrationality Decision–making, belief and behavioral biases. If a person was to look into human sciences and mathematics as ways of knowing, he or she would determine that cognitive bias is present every time a person sees a pattern. However, they are unable to see the bias for themselves because of the selectivity of perception. Human sciences will be beneficial in answering this question because looking at studies and experiments previously done on the subject would give insight into cases in which people use cognitive bias. Fallacies such as the bandwagon effect and the ambiguity effect could be seen in experiments to help prove or disprove the claim. Mathematics as an area of knowledge is helpful because it uses logic and reason through values and shapes to present patterns and it is the most common form of patterns. Also in math we can look at imaginary and irrational numbers as well as geometry to determine if cognitive bias causes pareidolia in logical patterns.

With more than 150 title sequences, five Emmy nominations, the Title of Honorary Royal Designer and the winner of the AIGA medal in 2014, Cooper has become a huge affect with title designers in the 21st century. His creation of the title sequence for Se7en (1995) is what brought the limelight to Cooper, after having such a success with both the public and filmmakers all around the world. The New York Times went so far as to say that this specific title sequence was one of the most important design innovations of the 1990s. Influenced by the works of Pablo Ferro, Saul Bass, Stephen Frankfurt and Maurice Binder, Cooper's style and designs changed the way in which title sequences for movies, series and video games are done nowadays, by evoking a revival in the importance of a meaningful and well–designed title; something that had been gradually lost in the previous decades. Pre Se7en Era As a child, Cooper was highly influenced by American horror films and horror comic books, which would leave him with an idea of "...evil as an active, supernatural force in the world."A motif that is clearly seen in his work, as his sequences usually include depictions of evil or have dark undertones, like in Arlington Road (1999), where Cooper ...

The advantage of renting a dwelling is the lack of time commitment required. If a lease is required, it may be for a one–year term. If the situation is not agreeable to the tenant, or the tenant needs to relocate out of the area, or prefers a different location, the option to move is available without a penalty. Some rental units may be available on a monthly basis. While many rental agreements require a security deposit, that deposit would be significantly less than a down payment and loan closing costs required for the purchase of a residence. While the rental amount may cover the owner's cost of insurance, maintenance, and taxes, they are not the direct responsibility the tenant. Maintenance and repairs are also the responsibility of the property owner not the tenant. A tenant has much less responsibility than the property owner. The disadvantages of renting can be the restrictions set forth by the landlord or property owner. These may include prohibiting modifications of the unit such as ...

Maintenance and repairs also fall to the property owner. The cost of the repair and finding someone qualified and reputable to do the repair can be quite stressful.

These two mathematicians had different concepts of the logarithms and its present use today. John Napier's logarithms were published in 1614, while six years later, in 1620, Burgi's logarithms were published (A REVIEW OF LOGARITHMS 2016). Both Napier and Burgi invented logarithms in order to simplify mathematical calculations. To reach their goals, they used two different methods; Napier used the algebraic method and Burgi used the geometric method. Although these two men had discovered logarithms, they did not have the concept of a logarithmic base. The current definition defines a logarithm as "the power ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Originally, the exponent notation was not used, but was a further developed method to explain Burgi's concept. In conclusion, Burgi's discovery of relating geometric and arithmetic series is the reason why he has a great contributor to the development of logarithms. The other important contributor to the development of logarithms in 1614 was John Napier, a Scottish mathematician. His incentive was to help in the multiplication of sine quantities. The entire sine was the value of the side calculated of a right angle triangle with a large hypotenuse. In participation with the English mathematician Henry Briggs, Napier transformed his logarithm into its present day shape. The comparison of logarithms is between an L point moving consistently minus infinity, and an X point moving from zero towards infinity at a speed proportional to its distance from zero. Napier's discovery made a general relation between the arithmetic and geometric series; i.e., multiplication and rising to a power of the values of the X point correspond to addition and multiplication of the values of the L point, respectively (John Napier and logarithms 2016). For instance, in order to limit the L and X motion, the requirement is that L=1 at X=10, additionally to that condition that X=1 at L=0. The change had contributed to the logarithm known as the Briggsian at that time (Logarithms: The Early History of a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Abstract: – The many concepts we currently have in the field of mathematics are thanks to great mathematicians from different cultures throughout time. An important era when great mathematical discoveries were made was during Medieval Times, or the Middle Ages. In this paper we discuss important discoveries and contributions that were made by three famous mathematicians of this time period including French Nicole Oresme, German Jordanus Nemorarius and Italian Leonardo Pisano, better known for his nickname of Fibonacci. Key–Words: – Medieval, Mathematics, Fibonacci, Arithmetic, Sequence 1 Introduction Mathematics has grown and expanded its many concepts thanks to mathematicians from different societies throughout time. A very important era in history is considered to be the Medieval Times, or the middle ages. According to reference [6], "People use the phrase 'Middle Ages' to describe Europe between the fall of Rome in 476 CE and the beginning of the Renaissance in the 14th century." The Middle Ages, or Medieval Times, are known for their famous art, architecture, crusades among other things, but there were also mathematical contributions happening during this time period. Mathematical concepts that we know and use nowadays are thanks to contributions made from different mathematicians throughout time. The Medieval Times are no exception since great men living in this era contributed to the beautiful subject of mathematics. Some of the many intelligent minds from this era ...

  • 126. Analysis Of The Movie ' Workplace Tension ' Workplace Tension In his 1916 silent–film Intolerance, D.W. Griffith pioneered editing techniques that helped establish montage as a core component of film language. Griffith set out to unite four disparate storylines under the common theme of love's eternal battle with intolerance. While Griffith believed this film achieved its goal, some of his contemporaries argued that Intolerance was a "magnificent failure" (Eisenstein, 241). Indeed, Eisenstein proposed that the unification Griffith sought to create was impossible because the juxtaposition of these stories did not create new meaning. Instead, Eisenstein wrote that the lack of conflict between shots prevented the synthesis of a higher meaning, or montage trope. While it is true that Intolerance generally does not accomplish montage trope, especially when referencing Walt Whitman's Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, where Griffith explicitly attempts it, there are examples of its implementation. Griffith does manage to achieve this higher meaning in the scene depicting a labor strike. Eisenstein's claim that Griffith never incorporates montage tropes into his films is false as demonstrated by the social criticism in the juxtaposition of the striking mill workers and Mr. Jenkins. Eisenstein describes montage trope as the juxtaposition of images resulting in a greater abstract meaning. By abstract, Eisenstein means that the significance of the juxtaposition is not confined to the individual images on the screen. ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

I was and I still am a single mother of three boys, Tunji (my oldest), Jaylon and Jaleel (my twins). This has and is a fulltime job, but I am not going to speak about the present, only my past life of raising my three sons. I have always worked but there was a time that I had to stop working in order to focus on my twins. I knew from the age of 1 year old, something just wasn't quite right with their behavior and cognitive development was lacking in a lot of areas. For example; not talking, just babbling and pointing at objects, loud noises caused them to shut down and cover their ears, lining up objects and any little disturbance in their routine caused them to have a tantrum or screaming fit. It was so hard trying to get answers from doctors, their favorite thing to say to me was "it's a twin thing – they will grow out of it." This was the beginning of a long – hard road. The three most enjoyable things that I liked about this job is: Investigating, finding out what was wrong with my sons? Why are they behaving in this manner? I was relentless in finding out and I didn't stop until I received all the right answers. I finally started getting answers, first I found out that they had a sleeping disorder, so they was put on sleeping pills, my thought was "YES, I will know get sleep!"

The middle aged Walter White is a passionate chemist and somewhat unsuccessful high school chemistry teacher. The poorly remunerated and disrespected educator is diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and pairs with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, in a life of crime to produce a highly superior form of crystal methamphetamine, with the attempts of providing for the financial wellbeing of his wife, Skylar and son, Walter White Jr., who was born with cerebral palsy.

The narrative complexity in Breaking Bad owes also to the show's enigmatic and transformative characters. Walt is depicted as an upstanding family man, working two jobs to provide for his family and enriching young minds as a teacher. However, in the first three episodes Walt's character changes are dramatic. The first episode of the show features a scene in which Walt discusses the concepts of chemistry and specifically the notion of chemistry phases of change to his high school students. This analogy of chemical change can appropriately be adapted to understand Walt's psychological changes. The audience is presented with a man who is depicted as a victim of modern day society. Analogous to many other individuals, Walt is the breadwinner in the White family with financial struggles such that his teacher's compensation is not enough to cover his expenses. Furthermore, he is a man having just been diagnosed with terminal cancer and in his turmoil experiences a moment of weakness and decides to produce drugs, as he is desperate to provide for his family after his death.

The male says '.... no–body ever robs restaurants' This illustrates they are breaking conventions. In a traditional narrative we expect to see characters that have prominent roles in the film to be in the opening sequence; also you'd expect the story contained in the opening sequence to be followed up. This is not the case in Pulp Fiction. We leave the opening scene in a moment of action. Therefore we are set up with the expectation of what happens next? In a traditional linear narrative this is a question which is likely to be answered. However in Pulp Fiction the next scene contains different characters and a different plot. We do not return to the opening story till the end of the film. The next scene contains the opening credits. The music is upbeat and compliments the emotional intensity of the two thieves' situation. The music also suggests we are still with the two thieves' story. In the middle of the title track we hear a radio changing dial and a new track plays 'Jungle Boogie.' This suggests unpredictability. This is also a subversion of traditions in itself as it doesn't happen in any other film.

From the opening credits, with their white–on–black minimalism and the stealthy, suggestive music, it's clear that 'The Sixth Sense' is going to have you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. The black of the background symbolises darkness and the feeling of unawareness and the contrasting glowing white writing stands out against it. As the scrolling credits fade into the background followed by shadows; it sets an eerie atmosphere, which prepares you for the rest of the movie. The haunting music gets more intense as the credits roll on, which builds tension towards the opening scene, as it starts with complementary near silence to add impact. The opening credits in 'The Others' also create a similar ghostly setting as in 'The Sixth Sense' although I feel that the credits in 'The Others' are more chilling and quite shocking.

As the music goes on, the constant loud bang of the drum adds that scary effect that you don't know what's going to happen next. The sound of a train and furnaces firing up are amongst a few which add a heavier eerie feel to the sequence. The editing can be seen that throughout the sequence a filter was put on top of the film, as well as this many of the shots have a blur around the edges. This effect could connotate the feelings of the main character when he first comes out of the coma. A time– lapse shot has also been used from 0:09 to 0:11 to convey the many years that have passed since he has been in the coma.
