Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) Type of Work: Social commentary Setting Zenith, a mythical Midwestern American city; 1920s Principal Characters George F. Babbitt, a middle-aged real estate agent Myra, his wife Ted, their teenage son Paul Reisling, George's buddy from college Zilla, Paul's nagging wife Tanis Judique, George's mistress Seneca Doane, a radical lawyer and George's former college friend Story Overveiw As another day began in Zenith, sleeping George Babbitt fought to ignore the morning sounds - the milk truck, the furnace-man, a dog barking - so that he could cling to the dream he was having. He had the same dream often. It involved a "f ...

- Bilingual Education - 1,651 words
Bi-Lingual Education Bilingual Education Education is very important. There use to be a time when you didn't have to go to school. When it was only important for men to have an education. Times have really changed. Now it is crucial for everyone in our society to have an education. Survival is the main reason: a cohesive society is another. Our schools today need to keep Bilingual education as a tool for teaching: not only for the sake of our society but also for the sense of our culture. Bilingual education in our schools is crucial: but still there is talk about banning the use of foreign language in the instruction of our young children. We have to work to change that kind of attitude. We ...

- Effect Of Blocking Cavities Experiment - 502 words
Effect of Blocking Cavities Experiment Jared Matola Section 002 Team Members: Sam Liptak Matt Sudak Conducted: 2/10/99 Due: 2/17/99 Turned in: 2/17/99 at 8:00 Summary of Results: The purpose of this experiment was to demonstrate the effect that blocking cavities has in an injection mold on the process window and part quality. First we had to get a 95% full part. These parts were weighed before the hold pressure was added. The hold pressure was added and parts were weighed with the high, low, and optimum hold pressure. We also recorded the peak cavity pressure max, min, average, and standard deviation for the optimum parts. This procedure was repeated for the same mold with one blocked cavity ...

- Gender Differences In Visual And Tactile Line Bisection - 1,124 words
... in subjects on different conditions (VA, VB, TA, TB), as well as between subjects (mean line bisection error and gender differences). The independent variables are thus, position and type of stimulus (VA, VB, TA, TB), and gender (male, female). The dependent variable is mean line bisection error. Each subject bisected 12 radial lines presented along the midsagittal plane. The visual and tactile above and below eye level stimuli were presented 30cm from the participants (following most other studies in this area, Geldmacher et al., 1994, Jeerakathil et al., 1994, Kageyama et al., 1994). The tactile stimuli were presented with the subject's eyes closed. Each task was preluded by the resear ...

- General Electrics Quality Gamble - 1,192 words
... . Six Sigma offers two approaches to changing a process. One approach is to change the design of the product in which this component is used so that it can accommodate some of the variations in the length without malfunctioning. Thus, for instance, the so-called design-length could be three sigma, accommodating components with 3 times the standard deviation of the process. In other words, components that measure between 99.07 mm and 100.03 mm will also be acceptable. Units that exceed three sigma are still eliminated, but the number of defects in every sample is decreased. The second approach is to make improvements in the process itself so the chances of defects are lowered. That will r ...

- Intelligence - 1,476 words
Intelligence The increasingly difficult life for low IQ people is not caused by high IQ people, but by other factors. Segregation and tension occur across IQ lines by the nature of humanity and not by the implications of high IQ people. Let's face it, life is tough for everyone regardless of his or her placement on the intelligence scale. You're too smart, too stupid, too beautiful, too ugly, too hard, too soft, too nice too mean; we've all heard it. Almost everyone can indicate some inherent trait that has made his or her life difficult. Individuals with a low IQ may point out that their low level of g has been the cause of problems in life. Intelligence researchers have found strong eviden ...

Many develop their personalities, profiles, and various other tastes based on their listening choices. In general, many college students acquire the same spectrum of listening values. If a radio station, one that wishes to target the college student population, can discover the musical preferences of the general population of students, they will be able to grow within the specific market. Since the t ...

- Rulers And Reaction Times - 1,369 words
Rulers And Reaction Times Rulers and Reaction Times Abstract The reaction time of ten subjects was measured. The subjects were asked to catch a ruler ten times under five different conditions. The first condition measured the subject's simple reaction time. Each further condition added an additional stimulus and the reaction times were measured. There was a clear increase in reaction time with the addition of further stimulus, however the expected result of a steady increase in response time with the addition of each condition did not occur. The third condition displayed the highest response time where as the final condition displayed the second lowest (after condition 1). Assuming that no d ...

- Running Head: Duration Of Icon - 1,833 words
Running head: DURATION OF ICON How Much Information Will an Individual Store in His or Her Iconic Memory? Evelyn Delgado Queens College/ CUNY How much information will an individual store in his or her iconic memory? In a given time, individuals are able to perceive more information than they can verbally encode. This is the process by which a visual stimulus is transformed to neurons to enable the brain to store information in the immediate memory. The rate of transfer is how fast an individual can encode something in a given time, which is stored in the immediate or short-term memory. It is stated that visual input can be stored in some medium, that later will be recalled. When the duratio ...

- Running Head: The Effect Of Backgrounds On Recall - 1,482 words
Running head: THE EFFECT OF BACKGROUNDS ON RECALL The Difference of Main Recall Between Pictures and Words When Presented on a Background or No Background. Tara M. ODonnell State University of New York at StonyBrook Psy 380.02 Abstract The picture superiority effect has been studied for many years and many theories have been proposed to explain it. Craik and Loackhart (1972) have found that pictures are always remembered better than words. Swets and Birdsall (1967) on the other hand have used the signal detection theory to try to explain how the picture superiority effect could be reversed. The signal detection theory states that it takes longer to find critical items when there is other ext ...

- Service Characteristics - 3,135 words
Service Characteristics 1. Service Mechanism or Process: For each category of customer it is necessary to describe the service process. This is usually expressed as a probability distribution for service times; for example, service times might be normally distributed or uniformly distributed. At the least, we need to state the average time it takes for a server to serve a customer and the variance or standard deviation of the service time. We decline = average service rate possible per server in customers/unit time so 1/ is the average service time. 2. Queue Discipline When customers are in the queue, the system must have operating rules that determine which customer to serv ...

- Video Games And Aggression - 1,733 words
Video Games And Aggression As technology continues to forge ahead concerns about its effects on the populace are raised. Whether it be microwave ovens causing cancer or cell phones causing accidents, people are always interested in researching, and often condemning, these new products. Such is this case with videogames. Ever since Pong swept the nation, scholars have been researching videogames' effects on children. The most popular aspect of videogame research is whether or not games increase aggression. A video game is any console or PC based interactive game, aggression is any thoughts or behaviors related with the intention to cause harm. Contrary to popular belief, there is no reliable ...
