Chamelon Effect

...Yavuz1 Zeynep YAVUZ PSYC 102/8 Teoman Ertuğrul TULUN 15.02.2013 THE CHAMELEON EFFECT Nonverbal communication is a big part of people's interaction and it includes mimics, gestures, body postures and so on. People who are good at affecting others through their speech always use nonverbal communication tools successfully. The chameleon effect can be described as “ ...unconscious mimicry of the posture, mannerisms and facial expressions of one’s interaction partners” (Bargh, Chartrand 893). In this experiment, Chartrand and John Bargh wanted to show how much people mimic others' body language, whether it has a casual affect on increasing liking and if open minded people are much more affected by chameleon effect or not. Chartrand and John conducted 3 experiments about that subject. In the first one the question is: “Do people automatically mimic others, even strangers?”, the second research question is: “Does mimicry increase liking?” and the third one is “Do high-perspective-takers exhibit the chameleon effect more?” (Dean “The Chameleon Effect”). In the first and second experiment, the independent variable which is changed by experimenters to see if it has a casual effect is the use of mimics by the confederate. In the third one, the independent variable is being able to empathize. Dependent variable which is measured to see if it is affected by independent variable is respectively: mimicking others' body language, the increase of liking when mimicking increases and the......

History of Glassproduction

...These branches were founded in Syria (1076-1117), Kerman (1041-1187), Iraq (1119-1194) collapsed in 1157 and their heritage passed to Anatolian Seljuks or Sultanate of Anatolia (1075-1308) and Khwarezm-shahs or Khwarezm-Shah Empire (1077-1231). Anatolian Seljuks made glass products that merged style of Seljuk with one of Byzantine. They took Antalya from Greek Empire of Nicea (1204-1261) in 1207 and Sinop from Greek Empire of Trebizond (1204-1461) and directed to sailing. The biggest success of them put an end to Turkish Emirates excluded Mardin branch of Artuk and set up Turkish Union of Anatolian first time. However, Anatolian Seljuks defeated by Mongols at Battle of Kose Dag (Mount of No beard) in 1243 and they became a vassal state of Mongols. They lost their power after Battle of Kose Dag and collapsed in 1308. The gap of Eastern Iran was filled by Khwarezmid Empire (Khwarezm-Shahs) after collapse of Seljuks. They set up sovereignty at whole Iran and Azerbaijan region in 40 years. They put an end to Iraqi Seljuks in 1197 and Kara-Hitans in 1211 and took Afghanistan region from Gurids (1000-1215) who put an end to Ghaznavids in 1187. Like this they became sovereign whole Central Asia. However they did not farther go to copy Seljuks at glassware. However, Mongol diplomats were killed by Khwarezm-Shahs so that Khwarezm-Shahs territories of were looted by Mongols in 1220 and centre of them was Gurgench (now Urgench, Uzbekistan) surrendered to Mongols......

...international business cycles (Mendoza, 1991; Backus and Kehoe, 1992; Backus et al., 1992, 1995; Baxter and Crucini, 1993, 1995; Ravn, 1997). These authors have achieved some success in accounting for a number of anomalies that closed economy models fail to elucidate. Subsequent studies in this literature have emerged and brought interesting findings on international business cycle. One such discovery was on a variety of factors that affect the dynamics of business cycle fluctuations. For instance, multiple previous studies have attempted to address the issue of relative importance of worldwide shocks versus countryspecific shocks (Gregory et al., 1997; Canova and Marrinan, 1998; Hoffmaister et al., 1998; Kwark, 1999; Kose and Riezman, 2001; Kose, 2002; Kose et al., 2003). However, despite the sizeable volume of the findings on the relative importance, no conclusive evidence has been formed. Also just as the real business cycle researchers did in the closed economy models, most of the open economy research followed the tradition of using either calibration or a structural Vector Autoregressive (VAR) model where identifying restrictions are derived from long-run implications in the spirit of Blanchard and Quah (1989), who used the identification that supply shocks have a permanent effect but demand shocks do not. Gregory et al. (1997) somewhat uniquely entertain Kalman filtering and a dynamic factor model for the Group of Seven (G7) economies to utilize the methodological......

...Prospects for Thought Communication Kevin Warwick and Daniela Cerqui Department of Cybernetics, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, RG6 6AY, UK Abstract In this paper we take a look at the realistic future possibility of thought communication. Technical details are presented on experimentation carried out thus far using implant technology and the route ahead involving brain-computer interfaces is described. Of importance in the paper is however the ethical issues raised by such a novel technological development. Discussion is centred on how this relates to previous technological innovations and their early acceptance, e.g. the telephone. 1. Introduction Technology is now becoming available which is opening up the realistic possibility of thought communication between individuals being achieved in the forthcoming decade, through the use of brain-computer implants. Indeed the first trials along these lines are even now occurring in several research labs [Kennedy et. al., 2000; Warwick et. al., 2004]. New technical methods presently being looked into (e.g. nanotechnology) are only likely to further enhance the results obtained thus far and speed up the rate of progress in this area. Witnessing the dawning of a completely new and revolutionary technical capability for humans raises a multitude of questions in terms of the effects on all aspects of society. It is interesting to consider what we can learn by looking back to relevant new directions when they have......

Corporate Governance

...(Gupta, Kennedy, & Weave, 2009) showed that, based Globe & Mail report, there is a positive correlation between firm size and corporate governance score. The two finding together cast a doubt that Adjaoud and Ben-Amar constructed spurious relationship between the corporate governance quality and dividend payout while the direct relationship is between large mature firms and dividend payout. Such doubt is also evidenced by (Danis & Osobov, 2008) finding, which is consistent with life-cycle theory, that the propensity to pay dividends increase as firm matures. The conclusion of the study that there is a positive relationship between corporate governance and dividends contradicts with the finding of (Jiraporn & Ning, 2006) and (Kose & Knyazeva, 2006) who found that the relationship between corporate governance and Dividends are rather negative. Adjaoud and Ben-Amar did not explain the reason for such contradiction. However when the study was viewed versus the literature, the following observations were found as possible explanations for the contradicting results: 1- The difference in the proxies used for corporate governance between contradicting studies. 2- (Fidrmuc & Marcus, 2010) Finding that culture affect firms’ policies around the world. III. Conclusion Adjaoud and Ben-Amar relied on the agency theory in explaining corporate dividends behavior. However, they did not show the significance and explanatory power of such theory in......

Worker's Compensation

... When organizations determine the executive compensation, they relate the salary of the executives by growing the salary of the executive managers for the organizational performance. The executive managers use the position, and the flexibility of the position to design their jobs to increase the organizational benefits (Lin et al). The executive compensation is comprised of various elements, which include base salary, bonuses (short term), long-term incentives, executive benefits, and perquisites. The executive compensation is dependent on the tax legislation of the country. The base salary lays the base for determining the other forms of compensation associated to the salary and determine the standard of living for the executives (Ertugrul et al). The bonuses are used to motivate the managers and give them value for their work in the organization. The top managers in the organizations receive bonuses that are attached to their basic pay. The long term incentives are used by organizations to associate the executives with the management of the organization. This helps the organization to keep the executives by integrating them to the interests of management of the organization (Dale-Olsen). The long term plans give the executives the option to purchase stock at a lower cost than the prevailing market price. The executive benefits are associated with the high salaries, which is higher than those received by other employees. However, the UAE provides limits to the value of......

Great Depression and Current Crisis

...The current economic situation which begun in 2008, have led to low employment rates while many people lost their jobs between 2008 and 2009. By April 2009, the rate of unemployment in the United States was about 8.5 percent, with more than five states in the country reporting levels greater than 10 percent(Helbling, 2015).. If the proportion of the population who gave up looking for a job or go for the part-time job are part of the United States unemployment, measurements, the actual levels rose to 15 percent. Because of fewer regulations on purchases on stock market, in the periods leading to the Great Depression, people were able to purchase stocks on margin, where the only requirements were to place a down of 10 percent (Claessens, Kose & Terrones, n.d.). This meant that investors could purchase stocks valued at a hundred dollars for ten dollars, if that stock increased by as little as 10 percent, they would have gotten twice the value. Such form of speculation resulted to a broad speculation, with investors cashing in their life savings to invest cash in the stock market; this resulted to artificially increased prices (Helbling, 2015). Stock market controls were resettled during the Great Depression to avoid a similar situation from affecting the financial market in future, but some decades later, the United States witnessed a similar situation that is still being seen today, especially in the housing market. For example, people have bought highly priced homes,......

Developing Countries vs Developed Countries

... 3. Role of International Organizations 2 4. Role of NAFTA 2 5. FDI and Global Business 3 6. Conclusion 4 References 4 1. Introduction Developing economies consist of a very diverse sort of group that includes some of large economies enjoying high economic growth rates like that of China, INDIA AND Brazil and many small economies having low rates of economic growth. The countries having high GDP growth among group of developing nations have remained able to sustain the negative impacts of financial crises very well as these were not that much affected by consequences of financial crises. There are few small or middle income economies that are quite rigid in a way that these nations depend on specific factors for development (Kose, 2013). Keeping in view the GDP growth rates of group of countries in a globe it cannot be said that developing countries do not have room for business growth but that fact is these do not have competitive advantage that can match those of developed nations and that is the reason I agree with the statement that “The emergence of developed countries as major players in global business has made it more difficult for developing countries to succeed”. There are certain factors that are acting as hindrance in the way of business development in developing nations making their position less favorable as compared to that of developed countries in global business. One of the major factors that make position of developing nations less favorable......

Starbuck Cup Analysis

... Assignment 1: Document Analysis Khanh Van Marc Kose Monty Samuel Robert Pradia Sam Twaiti Steve Sims Owais Siddiqui ITEC 3290: Technical Writing Instructor: Deborah Welsh 01-19-2015 Marc Kose The warnings that Starbucks is attempting to convey on it's cups are very effective. There are three warnings on different spots on the cup: one on the lid and two on the cup itself. The warning on the lid tells the customer that the contents of the cup are hot. It is a wise place to put the warning because a customer will likely see it before the coffee hits his or her lips before he or she drinks it. Owais Siddiqui The lid has warning sign in three different languages .Chaud is in French language which mean hot. Precaution Caliente is in Spanish which translates. Caution hot Caution Hot is in English. Using different language provides with clarity and usability for the customers around the globe The second warning on the bottom of the cup is much like the one on the lid, but offers a more clever and less direct warning, "Careful, the beverage your about to enjoy is extremely hot" This is wise to have a second warning in case the lid is removed before drinking the coffee.  The third warning tells the customer not to microwave the cup. Most likely a microwaved cup of coffee can become hotter than what is served fresh and could scald the consumer. All of these warnings help cover Starbucks in the event of a product liability suit.  The other labels and markings on the cup show......

Kaykman-Kose, S., Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for pain control after vaginal delivery and cesarean section.The Journal of Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine 27(15): 1572–1575. (2014) Kayman-Kose, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, aim for this study was to determine the efficiency and reliability of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in the management of pain related with uterine contractions after vaginal delivery and the pain related with both abdominal incision uterine contractions after cesarean section. The author chose TENS because it’s a technique which offers a practicable, safe and relatively cheap solution for relieving pain. Also the other big reason is that TENS may help avoid adverse effects related with pharmacological analgesia. The author referenced Hamza’s work regarding the effects of TENS on the demand for opioid analgesics after major gynecological operations in four patient groupsin their published work; Effect of the frequency of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on the postoperative opioid analgesic requirement and recovery profile.
