The James-Lange Theory, in summarization, suggests that our emotions are triggered by physiologial reactions to events. When we cry due to a loss it leads us to feel sorrowful, yelling and becoming violet towards someone who upsets us causes us to feel anger, shaking or being scared easily if someone was to jump out at us causes us to feel fear. According to James and Lange there is a physiological, or visceral experience, accompanying every major emotion. We can determine the exact pattern of these responses that can help us to reveal the emotional experience. Researchers argue with this theory. According to some, this information cannot necessarily be proved. If a stranger approaches you from a dark alley during the night, and you're walking alone, you're going to immediately feel frightened. Whereas, before a big speech you accquire the same feeling over a length of time, and it stays with you until the event is over. Some don't see how this could be pin-pointed as the exact source of immediate emotional experience. According to Feldman (2010) : The James-Lange Theory poses another difficulty: our internal organs produce a relatively limited range of sensations. Although some types of physiological changes are associated with specific emotional experiences, it is difficult to imagine how each of the myriad emotions that people are capable of experiencing could be the result of a unique visceral change. Many emotions actually are associated with relatively similar sorts of visceral changes, a fact that contradicts the James-Lange theory (Davidson et al., 1994; Cameron, 2002.). (p. 269)
The Cannon-Bard Theory, ultimately states, bodily changes and emotions do not share a cause-and-effect relationship. Instead, they think these emotions/changes occur randomly, following a stimulating event. As stated by Feldman (2010) : The Cannon-Bard theory seems to have been…...

The Twin Pillars of Effective Leadership

...The twin pillars of effective leadership This time, we are going to study an article entitled ‘The twin pillars of effective leadership ‘written by Brian Legget and Conor Neill. The emphasis of this article is to show us different tools that a leader may use. These two authors classified tools in two types called the magnet and the hammer In this paper, we mentioned some cases of leaders who uses the magnet and the hammer and their capacity to deal with crisis . The magnet is a tool which is used to pull the followers. This tool is a slow-acting process and has a long –term effect. Leaders have to use different actions and disposed many skills to pull up his followers to attend objectives. Having different components of EI (emotional intelligence) a leader try to convince people by his vision, they will be probably attracted in the long term . This is why we can’t use this process to deal with crisis. On the other side, the hammer will be a perfect tool to deal with crisis and making decisions. It’s a drive for change, a leader has to push his followers and make a great decision on the right timing. People will be shocked and annoyed at the beginning but they will be convinced by leader’s attitude then. He must control systems and gives orders. He has to prove his charisma and makes other more responsible . An effective leader had to know the magnet and the hammer , he have to rule them with respect and honor . For example, a leader who has a vision (the magnet...

The Quaid Twin Medical Error

...The Quaid Twin Medical Error November, 1999 brought about a release of a report prepared by the prestigious National Academy of Science’s Institute of Medicine (IOM) making medical mistakes and their magnitude of the risks to patients receiving hospital care to common public knowledge. The IOM concluded that between 44,000-98,000 deaths occur annually because of medical errors. Among a general agreement was that system deficiencies were the most important factor in the problem and not incompetent or negligent physicians and other caregivers (Sultz & Young, 2010). An excellent example of a system deficiency that leads to a crisis and sentinel event was the highly publicized overdose of Heparin to Dennis Quaid’s newborn twins in 2007. The newborn twins of actor Dennis Quaid were among three patients accidentally given an adult dosage of Heparin, a blood thinner, from a vial containing 10,000 units per milliliter instead of the prescribed 10 units per milliliter. The patients were receiving intravenous inception of the heparin to flush the catheters and to prevent clotting. Cedars-Sinai’s CMO could basically do nothing more than offer his sincerest apologies; yet, ultimately a huge settlement was made for this sentinel event. As noted by experts, “Heparin is a good drug, but you have to pay very careful attention because of the varying concentrations” (Fox News, 2007). Now Quaid has become the self-described "front man" for a campaign to improve patient care with the...

Mark Twin Research

...“Life does not consist mainly – or even largely – of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing through one’s head” states Mark Twain in his autobiography (Twain, Wit 78). Twain certainly had a “storm of thoughts,” but he was able to eloquently and succinctly put those thoughts onto paper. Because he wrote a combination of fiction and nonfiction, it is difficult to categorize Mark Twain as an author. According to Neil Schmitz, Mark Twain was, “a southern humorist gone over, not just a deserter, a dissenter, but a literary scalawag, a southern writer in unionist discourse and narrative” (91). Most people recognize Twain’s brief, witty, straightforward proverbs that are often quoted today. He also wrote many novels, a few nonfiction books, a plethora of short stories, and essays. Mark Twain uses a variety of rhetorical devices including carefully chosen, colorful language, satirical tone, and unique symbolism to entertain and to enlighten his readers about the moral dilemmas and the beauty of the America he knew. According to Ernest Hemingway, all of American literature comes from one great book, Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Twain, Huck Finn vii). Although this statement may seem hyperbolic, it does indicate the important place Mark Twain holds in American literature. Early Nineteenth century American writers tended to try to write like English writers with flowery, ostentatious language (Schmitz 100...

Twin Deficit

...Twin Deficit For the past 2 years, India has been fighting slow growth, high inflation and the twin deficits – fiscal deficit and current account deficit. The current account deficit reached the peak of 5.3% of GDP in Q1 FY13 which is much beyond the comfort zone of 3%. The fiscal deficit has also proved difficult to control, leading to a large part of borrowing going into servicing the debt rather than towards capital intensive activities. Off late the threat of being relegated to the status of junk bonds has made the government to swing into action and try and take steps to curb the deficits. It is the result of these measures that the fiscal deficit is not expected to go much beyond the government target of 5.3% of GDP. As a part of its efforts, government has also come up with the target of reducing the fiscal deficit to 3% of GDP by 2016-17. In order to rein in on the fiscal deficit, under the direction of Finance Minister, government managed to cut expenditures to the tune of Rs.80000 crores. Besides this, unlike previous years government has managed to keep its stake selling program on track, which is expected to result in the revenue receipts of about Rs.30000 crores. However, the government has also been cutting corners and using financial jugglery to cuts the deficit. Transferring the subsidy payment bills onto the next year and one time receipts from stake sale in PSUs are not effective and long term solution. Apart from this, losses like those of State...

Twin Study

...Summary This article discusses about twins separated and the genetic of personality differences and concentrated on studies that have been made in 1979 by the Minnesota Study of Twins Reared Apart ( MISTRA). In the research, the researcher focused on two aspects of cognitive and personality. However, in this article the discussion limited to discuss about the personality and behavioral differences only. The study conducted by Minnesota is to support the existence of an important genetic component in behavioral and personality differences. According to the author, the study has been done by MISTRA are biased toward the sample, based on Newman et al. and Shields studies, MISTRA twins were discovered on the basis of similarity and their knowledge of each other's existence. Also, Minnesota study also lack of case histories and the failure to share data. The reports of Newman et al., Shields, and Juel-Nielsen contained hundreds of pages of detailed case histories of twins, which helped independent observers to draw their own conclusions from the data. Although most of the earlier researchers were viewing twins through a hereditary lens, their descriptions provided a wealth of information. In this study, they are used several type of method, one of the technique is used two or more test instrument to ensure the adequate coverage, for example the participants were given a battery of personality and mental ability tests, interest and value......

Does Twin Language Affect Language Later

...Research Paper: Does Twin Language as child effect language later Chloe Wilborn B00745993 October 4, 2013 Introduction To me personally Twins is an interesting topic because I have a twin sister. Although we are not identical, we are so much alike. Language and communication are also important because they are the foundation of a society. A society must have credible and solid language. I wanted to research the communication between twins, because I wanted to know if being so close to one person effected their communications with others. Does the bond that twins have restrict them from closely communicating with someone that is not their twin? It’s suggested that growing up all twins have a twin language that they use to only talk to one another and no one else can understand it. I also wanted to know if that language between the twins ultimately would cause problems in language later for them. My sister and I did have a twin language and I also wanted to know if that could have had an effect on us. Article Summaries Thorpe, K. (2006). Twin children's language development. Early Human Development, 82(6), 387-395. doi:10.1016/j.earlhumdev.2006.03.012 The purpose of this experiment was to study the delay in language in comparison between twins and single born children. On average, twins have scored lower than single born children on range of tests of verbal understanding. This was especially true in male twins though. Thorpe (2006) used twins from 20 months to 11...

The Twin Paradox for Dummies

...Everything is relative or objective Nothing is really as it seems to us and all things are subjective to the observer. Everything is relative to each person from the viewpoint. Comparative readings, of two almost unimaginably accurate precision atomic clocks located on fast moving spacecraft and airplanes and on earth, have detected this strange skewing of time and proved Einstein's theory of relativity to be fact. Stop all the clocks in the universe and movement will continue unaffected. Stop all movement and the illusion we call time will stop and nothing ever happen again. As an object approached the speed of light it becomes more and compressed (It occupies less and less space), distorts the fabric of space time and time slows on the speeding object when compared to an object stationary state, it left at its source. Let the Object equate to a spaceship if you like. Time is much like an elastic string which can only be stretched in one direction namely; into the future. The twin paradox describes what happens. Twins; One boards a spacecraft that accelerates to near light speed, on say a voyage to Alpha Centauri, some four light years from earth. The other remains on the home planet. Ten years later the bother who went to Alpha Centauri returns having aged only "one subjective year" because time has moved slower for him, "relative" to his brother who remained on the home planet, where time moved at the "normal rate" Why...

Twin Towers

...Heroism in the Twin Towers | | | 1) One reason as to why some people act heroically in emergencies while others do not is based on the fact that heroic people possess positive morals and traits (Johnson, 2012). Furthermore, those people that possess positive morals and traits make good choices and will respond to a situation immediately (Johnson, 2012). In the case study, Heroism in the Twin Towers, the rescuers displayed positive morals and traits by using crowbars to break through drywall and opening stairway doors in order to reach out and help the victims escape being fully aware that at any given moment they could have injured themselves in the process (Johnson, 2012). Another reason as to why some people act heroically in emergencies while others do not is based on the fact that heroic people have a high moral identity where moral principles and character traits are the core of their being (Johnson, 2012). Furthermore, people with a high moral identity have a positive approach to life as well as a strong desire to do the right thing demonstrating will power and integrity to help others in need (Johnson, 2012). In the case study, Heroism in the Twin Towers, the rescuers displayed the most notable case of a high moral identity as they were willing to sacrifice their life so that the victims can live (Johnson, 2012). 2) The type of characteristic traits that the rescuers demonstrated in rescuing the victims from the Twin Tower attacks were courage...

Gory Twin

...Stretching on the bath mat, I finally finished my story and learned what was in the babies room, with no interuptions from Lucas. I stood up making sure to stay quiet because I know Lucas is still at the door waiting, for me to get up and walk out. If he is still at the door that means that Mommy and Daddy are not home yet. I walk over to the little window and look out at the happily lit darkness of our yard, "they should be home by now" I think to myself. "They are probably still with friends they will be home soon," I walked to the mirror and started to think about today and my little scheme with Lucas. I think the details and suspense I put into that was almost better than the book I just finished maybe I should write a story about it. I giggled which I knew the second I did it was a mistake. I cover my mouth and snap my head in the direction of the door, just to see Lucas' shadow stir. "Knock, knock, knock" "Amy? Are you done your book now? Want to come out and play another game? It will be fun, like a bored game? Or that game where I let my bug collection crawl on you? Don't you love that one too?" He mockingly laughs at me while tapping the glass jar full of bugs on the door sending shivers up my spine. I let out a whine telling him gross because I can't say it. Lucas laughs again and I see his shadow moving and stirring. "Come on Amy! It will be fun!" and at that moment my mind starts turning and I think that this plan is so stupid it just might work. "Okay, Lucas...

Twin Peaks Building Supplies

...Rosy E. Acuna ACCT. 500 October 20, 2013 BUSINESS CASE # 2 Twin Peaks Building Supplies The business environment has dramatically changed in the last two decades. Competition has severely intensified. The instant access to information via computers, smart phones, tablets, etc. allow consumers to compare prices and purchase merchandise from anywhere in the world. In addition, we have witnessed a considerable growth in retail chain companies such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Costco, etc. These big chains command the power and the volume to offer low prices and a vast variety of products. Offering consumers not only low prices, but in many cases a one stop shop. The arrival of these big chain companies in many cases has been the demise of small privately own business that cannot compete in price, volume, and number of products offered. Furthermore, the recent recession has left consumers cautious about their spending. Twin Peaks Building Supplies is facing major financial problems, which have forced the owners to immediately take action and identify current major issues, contributing factors, and possible solutions. Twin Peaks Building Supplies has operated under new management for nine months, of which only the first six were profitable.

Evil Twin

...Evil Twin Wi-Fi Attacks NT1110: Computer Structure and Logic October 23, 2013 Abstract What is the “Evil Twin”? Evil Twin is a type of Wi-Fi attack, it is a home-made wireless access point that masquerades as a legitimate hot spot with a very strong signal in efforts to gather personal or corporate information. With this, the overall goal of this report is to educate the public on how to protect themselves. Additionally in this disadvantages and advantages will be discussed along with the effects on consumers and the future. According to Dr. Phil Nobles, a wireless Internet and cybercrime expert at Cranfield University, said: this is how the evil twin works. "So-called 'evil twin' hotspots present a hidden danger for Web users. In essence, users think they've logged on to a wireless hotspot connection when in fact they've been tricked to connect to the attacker's unauthorized base station. The latter jams the connection to a legitimate base station by sending a stronger signal within close proximity to the wireless client -- thereby turning itself into an 'evil twin. Cybercriminals don't have to be that clever to carry out such an attack. Because wireless networks are based on radio signals they can be easily detected by unauthorized users tuning into the same frequency."

Twin Oaks Hospital Case Study

...Twin Oaks Hospital in Lexington, Colorado is a 100-bed hospital with a staff of 350 employees that include over 200 nurses and 40 clerical and secretarial employees, the majority of which are women. Recently the staff has had some apprehension and discontent over pay levels. Lexington Memorial Hospital, a public facility near to Twin Oaks recently agreed to demands from their nursing and clerical staff to increase wages five percent. They further agreed to introduce a job evaluation program which would evaluate the nursing and secretarial jobs based on comparable worth and that results of the study would be utilized as the basis for any future pay adjustments. As a result of this the staff at Twin Oaks has come to demand similar wage increases, as prior to the wage increase the compensations between the hospitals was very similar. In addition, union organizer had been meeting with employees and handing out flyers that illustrated findings from a comparable worth study. Meetings with union representatives, the flyer and the newly agreed demands from the staff at Lexington Memorial Hospital created some issues at Twin Oaks Hospital.

Essay on the Twin Paradox

...AN ESSAY ON THE TWIN PARADOX Nwokolo Peter Chidiebere (Nig) pchidiebere@aims.ac.tz April 24, 2016 According to special relativity, time travel into the future is possible. In science fictions, we have time machines which allow us to go anywhere we want either into the past or the future. But in reality, as far as we know only time travel into the future is possible and it works like this. Imagine we have two identical twins Peter and Paul. Peter gets into a rocket and travels to a star ten light years away. A light year is the distance light travels in one year which is approximately 9.4607 × 1012 km (Crockett, 2013). He moves at 80% the speed of light. When he gets to the star, he turns around and comes back at the same speed. Twenty-five years would have elapsed on earth but only fifteen years for the traveller. When he gets out from the spaceship, he is surprised to see that his identical twin is aged an extra ten years. Theoretically, if you can get your rocket going near the speed of light and you went as far as one of the galaxies and came back, millions of years would have elapsed on earth, yet the trip might only take you a few weeks. This is because of the assertion in special relativity which says that moving clocks run slow. And that is a great way to remember how things are different between two frames of reference. Vaguely speaking, frame of reference means the world according to you or according to me (Lincoln, 2014). But we have to know that it works both ways...
