Body Language

Body Language
Have you ever felt misunderstood, or not taken seriously although your words made perfect sense? I?ve seen this happen to many people and most recently to a friend of mine. She had a perfect CV, she was very accomplished and all those who knew her swore she?d have a great career. She had several job interviews but strangely was never accepted. We all did not know why until one day she asked her mother to interview her as practice for her coming job interview. Her mother told her that she looked nervous. My friend was shocked because she was feeling very comfortable at that time, so she began to wonder why did her mother get that wrong signal, and she realized that on some level her actions were the complete opposite of her feelings. She made some research and found an article that helped her a lot. It was written by Greg Hartley, a body language expert who was an interrogator in the Army for 20 years. He stated that 85% of what you communicate is not with words. It?s through the tone of your voice, the way you sit and many other messages that the body involuntarily sends. My friend?s problem was that she was unaware of the fact that body language can contradict spoken language. Her excess enthusiasm made her energy dissipate into fidgeting, a sign of nervousness or unease. Her crossed legs created a wall between her and the interviewer. And steepling her fingers made her look arrogant.

Rocketry

Rocketry
Rocketry, the use of rocket power as a propulsion mechanism, has changed the boundaries of man?s domain.Before the advent of efficient rocket power, space flight was seen as an impossibility and exclusively the subject of science fiction stories.The nature of rocket power changed in the early twentieth century when a man named Robert Hutchings Goddard focused his research and his entire life on efficient rocket propulsion.Rocket power had been thought of long before Goddard?s time, but he was the first to have success with it.

Conforming to Society's Norms

Conforming to Society's Norms
In today?s day and age contemporary society?s are built upon the thought of citizen conformity to a prescribed set of values and norms to. This idea of complies to social standards makes one think as to how these norms of fact society as a whole and an individual. The main driving component which draws people too conformity are the desire to be excepted in certain status groups. People fear that if they do not conformity is norms that they will be breaking the social contract therefore been shunned by society at not being able to achieve their personal goals. Further analysis of these forces for conformity in contemporary society it will be shown that these forces produced negative ethical conduct and hinder the foundation of justice that the political system of Canada is based upon.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis
Electrolysis In chemistry, the production of chemical changes by passing an electric current through a solution or molten salt (the electrolyte), resulting in the migration of ions to the electrodes: positive ions (cations) to the negative electrode (cathode) and negative ions (anions) to the positive electrode (anode). During electrolysis, the ions react with the electrode, either receiving or giving up electrons. The resultant atoms may be liberated as a gas, or deposited as a solid on the electrode, in amounts that are proportional to the amount of current passed, as discovered by English chemist Michael Faraday. For instance, when acidified water is electrolysed, hydrogen ions (H+) at the cathode receive electrons to form hydrogen gas; hydroxide ions (OH-) at the anode give up electrons to form oxygen gas and water. One application of electrolysis is electroplating, in which a solution of a salt, such as silver nitrate (AgNO3), is used and the object to be plated acts as the negative electrode, thus attracting silver ions (Ag+)

Management Accounting

Management Accounting
AbstractThe initial aim of this report is to layout the main differences ofthe client?s current basis of overhead absorption, compared toactivity ? based costing (abc). By showing the divergence of bothsystems, it appears that information generated from traditionaloverhead absorption does not properly equip client?s management withsuitable information for decision making. An additional aim of thispaper focuses on the potential benefits of activity ? based costing.It illustrates the chances of abc as a decision making tool to providemanagement benefits regarding the accuracy of cost and the achievementof goals and strategies. Lastly, this report highlights allinformation required for the implementation of abc into the client?sorganisation

The Development of Information Technology and Communication

The Development of Information Technology and Communication
his assignment is about the development of ict and my research into the history of computers. I have included in my report research of ict, and my research into the history of computers. I have included people of importance to the development of computers in my report. Objectives == To find out information about the development of ict and to find the importance of computer history. Also to find the importance of people that was involved in the development of computers in the early years to the present. Findings ==== Development of Computers Although the development of digital computers is rooted in the abacus and early mechanical calculating devices, Charles Babbage is credited with the design of the first modern computer, the ?analytical engine,? during the 1830s. American scientist Vannevar Bush built a mechanically operated device, called a differential analyser, in 1930; it was the first general-purpose analogue computer. John Atanassoff constructed the first semi-electronic digital computing device in 1939. The first fully automatic calculator was the Mark I, or Automatic Sequence Controlled Calculator, begun in 1939 at Harvard by Howard Aiken, while the first all-purpose electronic digital computer, eniac (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Calculator), which used thousands of vacuum tubes, was completed in 1946 at the Univ. of Pennsylvania. univac (UNIVersal Automatic Computer) became (1951) the first computer to handle both numeric and alphabetic data with equal facility; this was the first commercially available computer. First-generation computers were updated by the transistorised computers of the late 1950s and early 60s, second-generation machines that were smaller, used less power, and could perform a million operations per second. They, in turn, were replaced by the third-generation integrated-circuit machines of the mid-1960s and 1970s that were even smaller and were far more reliable.

Evaluation of Managerial Skills

Evaluation of Managerial Skills
By analysing my personality I will be able to discover whether or not I have certain attributes within my personality to perform a managerial type job by using set theories, such as Cattell and the Backs analysis. Management skills ===== In order to perform the functions of management and to assume multiple roles, managers must be skilled. Robert Katz identified three managerial skills that are essential to successful management: technical, human, and conceptual. Technical skill involves processes or technique knowledge and aptitude. Human skills involve the ability to be able to work with people effectively. Managers do not just delegate work to the sub ordinates, they must also co-operate and empathise with their employees. Conceptual skill involves the formulation of ideas. Managers understand conceptual relationships, develop ideas, and solve problems creatively.

Exploring Enzymes and Micro-Organisms

Exploring Enzymes and Micro-Organisms
All most all enzymes used commercially are obtained from
microorganisms. The microorganisms are grown or cultured and the
enzymes extracted or harvested from them.

Micro organisms are a good source of enzymes for the followingreasons:? They produced more enzyme molecules in relation to their body massthan most other organisms.? They are easy to manipulate genetically and can be subjected to genetransfer techniques.? Product yield can be increased by means of strain selection,mutation and by optimising growth conditions.?

Our Lives and Psychology

Our Lives and Psychology
The way we live depends on interaction with other people as well as on information we receive from the world. We form relationships, some of which are very bonded so we fall in love. Under the influence of environment we produce our behaviours. That is we find the best solutions for what we reoccupy from others and process information in our ways. Sometimes it is analytical that is we think logically, sometimes it is heuristic based on our instincts. The second one may be misleading, but very often there is no time to think. We are also able to learn and store information that draws our experience and prevents from making mistakes later on. Studying psychology-?science of behaviour? can give us some clues which we can use to improve our existence. Thanks to many researches, observations, and previous experience we are able to survive and exist. But it has to be bear in mind that there is no simple pattern for leading a good life. ?Man is the master of his own destiny.? First of all, people have tendency to approach each other or in other words to attract themselves. Psychology helps us to create positive evaluations, it is being held in high esteem by other people, shows how we are familiar to others and what similarities among us are. It also supplies us with information on psychical appearance. Study conducted by Geller et al. (1974) showed why appropriate evaluation exerts powerful effect.
