Investigative Psychology

Investigative Psychology
As stated by Bartol and Bartol (2008), investigative psychology is the application of psychological research and principles to the investigation of criminal behavior (Bartol &ump; Bartol, 2008). Investigative psychology is closely associated with criminal profiling, but there are other areas in which a forensic psychologist can participate in this particular subspecialty. An investigative psychologist maybe asked to perform a psychological autopsy, forensic hypnosis, or produce a geographical mapping. Psychological autopsies are generally performed in suspected suicide cases where the insurance company or family member questions the cause of death. Forensic hypnosis is an interview or interrogation method used by trained and credentialed professionals. Lastly, geographic mapping is a method of research ?concerned with analyzing spatial patterns of crimes committed by numerous offenders over a period of time (Bartol &ump; Bartol, 2008).? Geographic profiling is the analysis of a single serial offender?s geographic movement.

Psychology
My paper is based on an article from the text?s web site (chapter 9) entitled ?Lack of sleep ages body?s systems.? The basic claim of the article is that sleep deprivation has various harmful effects on the body. The reported effects include decreased ability to metabolize glucose (similar to what occurs in diabetes) and increased levels of cortisol (a stress hormone involved in memory and regulation of blood sugar levels). The article also briefly alludes (in the quote at the bottom of page 1) to unspecified changes in brain and immune functioning with sleep deprivation.

The Forty Studies That Changed Psychology

The Forty Studies That Changed Psychology
Eldridge Cleaver?.a black American essayist, editor, and public enemy number one in the mist of McCarthyism present in the days of the protest movement.
Cleaver?s [Soul on Ice] personifies Leftism at its core, with its unique combination of sex and revolution that personified the New left image to the masses. Critic Horst Kruger describes this mixture by how it?s perceived in West Germany: ?the era of Sex and Socialism. Eros is on the Left and beautiful is our youthful rebellion. Make love and carry the banner of Vietcong high.? {Painting Black Cardboard Figures, 1968) this emphasized Cleaver?s violent approach and skill quite evident in his writing. Cleaver discusses his infatuation with white women that was constantly imbedded within the root of the subjects mentioned in the book. In Soul on Ice Cleaver made negative references to African American women as ?bitches? ?amazons? and etc. ?There?s softness about white women? he explained ?but a nigger bitch seems to be full of steel?.The white women is like a goddess ?. I worship her. I love white women?s dirty drawers.? Cleavers fixation gave way to calling himself a self professed rapist that targeted white women that arose after ?practicing? on his own kind. Cleaver solely believed that this was caused by madness as an act of revenge by the means of accumulated racial injustices.

Romeo And Juliet - Comparisson To West Side Story

Romeo And Juliet - Comparisson To West Side Story
The play West Side Story, by Arthur Laurents, is based upon the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare. Despite a few differences, both works, in essence, have the same plot. The source of violence in Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story is the ever-present hatred between families and between gangs, although, because of the "star-cross?d lovers" motif in Romeo and Juliet, the hatred plays a larger role in producing the ending of West Side Story than it does the ending of Romeo and Juliet.

Investigating the Effect of Light Intensity on the Size of a Plantain Leaf

Investigating the Effect of Light Intensity on the Size of a Plantain Leaf
Title: To investigate the effect of light intensity on the size of a
plantain leaf.

Hypothesis: I predict that the size of the plantain leaves would
increase as the light intensity decreases. Therefore, plantain leaves
found in the shade will have larger surface areas than leaves found in
an open area.
