With each generation comes change. These changes are evident in style, technology, temperament, political, cultural and economical differences. There is a reason that many parents and grandparents use the term, “back in my day.” Economically speaking, the value of the American dollar and the cost of goods and services are vastly different from when my grandparents were growing up. For a mere .25 cents they could see a movie and grab a snack. In 2016 you can’t buy much of anything for a quarter.
I was taught growing up to be very frugal. My influences were my parents and grandparents who are all very different with their spending habits. The one thing that was given to me at an early age was the difference between want and need. With the technology available today it is very hard for my grandparents to understand why anyone would need to purchase a phone that costs upwards of $600. I was 25 years old before I purchased my first smart phone and the look on their faces when they heard the price was comical.
The aversion my grandparents have to spending mass amounts of money on things that they deem frivolous is completely understandable. They are both in their 80s and grew up during a time when even shoe leather was rationed. Everyone was poor but survived and even thrived after the war. After showing them the advantages of having a smart phone, despite the cost, they seemed to understand. Knowing that the phone has GPS, and other safety features was probably the only thing that really sold them on the idea. As wonderful as technology is I can completely understand their views and almost wish things were as simple as they were back then. Cheaper…...

Bystander Effect

...conformed at least once. Five percent of participants conformed every time. Of the participants who did not conform and gave the correct answer, many showed extreme discomfort. Variations of the basic paradigm tested how many cohorts were necessary to induce conformity, examining the influence of just one cohort and as many as fifteen. Results indicated that even if one actor voices a different opinion, participants are much more likely to resist the urge to conform than when all the actors agree. This shows the power that even a small dissenting minority can have. Interestingly, this finding holds whether or not the actor gave the correct answer. As long as a dissenting actor gives an answer that is different from the majority participants are more likely to give the correct answer (Yudkowsky, 2007). The Asch conformity experiments demonstrated the real power of Group Dynamics. The results overwhelmingly showed that the group of actors heavily influenced the individual. It should be noted that Asch used all males of roughly the same age in the experiments. Varying the age and gender might provide alternate outcomes. Equally, using simple math equations would have been another way to get alternate outcomes. Assignment 2 Part 2 The term bystander effect refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present, the less likely people are to help a person in distress.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Cohort and Case-Cotrol Studies

...Certain advantages and disadvantages exist for each of the various study designs. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of case control and cohort study designs (15 marks). Comment: In this case, we give advantages and disadvantages of cohort and case control study designs and offer a summary table to bring out their strengths and shortcomings. Cohort studies Advantages 1. Allow complete information on the subject’s exposure, including quality control of data, and experience thereafter. 2. Provide a clear temporal sequence of exposure and disease. 3. Give an opportunity to study multiple outcomes related to a specific exposure. 4. Permit calculation of incidence rates (absolute risk) as well as relative risk. 5. Enable the study of relatively rare exposures. Disadvantages 1. Not suited for the study of rare diseases because a large number of subjects is required. 2. Not suited when the time between exposure and disease manifestation is very long, although this can be overcome in historical cohort studies. 3. Exposure patterns, for example the composition of oral contraceptives, may change during the course of the study and make the results irrelevant. 4. Maintaining high rates of follow-up can be difficult. 5. Expensive to carry out because a large number of subjects is usually required. 6. Baseline data may be sparse because the large number of subjects does not allow for long interviews. Case-control studies Advantages 1. Permit the study......

...pose of the study was to determine the effects of social networking to the academic performance of the students of Universidad de Manila. Specifically, it attempted to answer the following questions: 1. What is the demographic profile of the respondents in terms of age, gender? 2. What is the academic performance of the respondents in terms of general weighted average GWA (first semester S.Y. 2012 – 2013)? 3. What is the attitude of the respondents towards social networking? 4. Is there a significant relationship between social networking and the academic performance of the respondents? Introduction Social networking is a popular trend today, especially among college students. Facebook, Friendster, Twitter, Tumblr, Yahoo Messenger, and Skype are but a few examples of the relatively new phenomenon of online social networking. People of all ages are flocking to Internet and are signing up for social networking sites by the millions. Facebook, for example, boated 901 million monthly active users and more than 125 billion friend connections at the end of March (Key Facts, 2012). Social networking could, in general terms, be seen as a way of describing the modeling of everyday practices of social interaction, including those that take place within family structures, between friends, and in neighborhoods and communities (Merchant, 2012). With online social networking sites, these practices of social interaction are taken to technological level which allows for social......

...Effects of Having a Relationship on Academic Performance of Students In: English and Literature Effects of Having a Relationship on Academic Performance of Students Introduction Entering a new environment makes us feel curious, excited, afraid, nervous, and many other more. Just like entering college, it’s like entering a new chapter of our lives. One may feel excited in meeting new classmates and friends; others may feel afraid of committing a mistake, might feel nervous of meeting the instructors or professors , and may feel curious of seeing and discovering this out of his new environment. Studying is fun and exciting. This will be more interesting if we are working together with the ones who understands us and to whom we are comfortable with. This is what we called friends. This group of people may bring a positive and negative effect on us; it might also help or destruct on our studies. The effect will just be depending on how we will react and respond to what is happening around us. Friends are sometimes the ones who bring the curiousness out within us. They are the ones who usually let us try and discover things out for the first time. And out of this curiousness, one may find how it feels to have this kind of special someone on his side whenever he needs it.  Since studying is also stressful and tiring, we also wants to feel relax and stress free for some time. We wanted to have a moment where we can feel happy and loved. So, one may ought to find special......

Dq 1 Generation Cohorts

...A) When it comes to generational cohorts, I belong to Generation Y or millennials as I was born in 1990. My parents, on the other hand, belong to Generation X or Xers as they were born in 1966 and 1967. B) When it comes to buying a new computer, I personally tend to do my fair share of research on different types. I currently own a Macbook by Apple and before I bought it I compared different types of laptops with their specifications, benefits, and prices. I did so by either looking up the information on the computer or looking at ads in the paper. My parents on the other hand would go by advertisements and what a sales person would say. They wouldn’t look for any specifics but rather just the basics of what most people use a computer for. It’s funny that my parents are that way because according to the book, Generation X “tend to be less likely to believe advertising claims or what sales people tell them”, and my parents are the opposite of that. I believe that to be though because they are foreign and didn’t come to the United States until the 1980’s. C) Now when it comes to buying a new outfit, my parents do tend to follow definition of Generation X. They don’t fall for the trends and what sales people tell them. They buy clothes based on quality, price and just what they like. Whenever my parents walk into lets say, Kohls, they tend to feel fabric to see if its comfortable and if its durable. They then proceed to look at the price and see if they have a coupon......

Cohort Marketing

...What Is a Cohort? In marketing, the term "cohort" refers to specific experiences, events or other factors shared by a group of consumers. These cohorts are used to identify and target segments of the market that, although they may fit into other models, are more effectively grouped and treated as one. The idea is that, although individuals make purchasing decisions, they do so based on events experienced while coming of age (late adolescence/early adulthood, or generally, when they were seventeen to twenty-three). These events, called defining moments, influence attitudes, preferences, values, and buying behaviors. And these attitudes, values, and buying-behavior motivations for each cohort remain virtually the same throughout their lives. That’s why, for example, those who came of age during the Great Depression still are financially risk-averse and tend to “save for a rainy day” while those Baby Boomers who were teenagers during the 1960s (when economic times were good) are more likely to “buy now, pay later” even during economic slumps. Grouping people into cohorts is not the same as segmenting them by generations, because cohorts are defined by influential societal events, which can happen at any time and shift societal values and attitudes. For example, the cohort defined most by World War II spans only six years, but the post-World War II group covers three times as many year Cohorts Versus Demographics Cohorts are often confused with the general demographics......

...radiation and gives skin its colour. The dermis is the inner layer that includes the following: Sweat glands – produce sweat that travels via sweat ducts to openings in the epidermis called pores. They play a role in temperature regulation. Hair follicles – are pits in which hairs grow. Hairs also play a role in temperature regulation. Sebaceous glands – produce sebum (an oil) to keep hairs free from dust and bacteria. Sebum and sweat make up the ‘surface film’. The subcutaneous layer under the dermis is made up of connective tissue and fat (a good insulator). Functions of the skin Provides a protective barrier against mechanical, thermal and physical injury and hazardous substances. · Prevents loss of moisture. · Reduces harmful effects of UV radiation. · Acts as a sensory organ (touch, detects temperature). · Helps regulate temperature. · An immune organ to detect infections etc. · Production of vitamin D. Skin cancer There are three main types of skin cancer, the most common of which is basal cell carcinoma, said Dr. Charles E. Crutchfield III, a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and medical director of Crutchfield Dermatology. More than 2 million cases of this skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year, according to the AAD. This type of cancer is skin colored or has a slight pearl color to it. It rarely metastasizes (i.e., it rarely spreads to other parts of the body), but it can be very......

Cohort Follow-Up Studies: Cardiovascular Disease (Cvd)

...Cohort Follow-up Studies: Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Latavia M. Walston Strayer University, Epidemiology Professor Godson 2/20/2015 Abstract What Causes of CVD Scientist and related health- care providers often use study modules from an epidemiological position to probe unanticipated devices associated to infection, and they come up with solutions to target key factors for therapy and possible prevention. Many modules make this probable for distinguishing basic procedures, risks and outcomes. Cohort follow-up studies cover a specific area of study that labels a subject matter when the outcome of the disease is not visible. Then the study compares the incidence of outcome between exposed and unexposed persons past, present, and future. In simple terms, cohort studies measure exposure, measure outcome and methods of follow-up. For instance cohort studies would be used to examine Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) which affects millions of people worldwide especially the African American race and is often limited to the Asian culture. According to the American College of Cardiology CVD is the largest single cause of death among women. The economic impact in the United States although difficult to estimate figures show an amount over $400 billion was spent in 2006 on health care as a result of lost productivity compared to other deadly diseases, (American Heart Association [AHA], 2007). The cohort follow-up study can either be viewed from a prospective...

Cohort Study

...strengths and weaknesses of each approach. To begin an epidemiologic study, we decide what to study. For this discussion, let's say we want to study prenatal exposure to electric and magnetic fields and the effect on a baby's birthweight. We look at the existing literature on birthweight to assess current knowledge and data. It is important to know if others have conducted similar studies in case they have uncovered specific design limitations or useful results, and this information is helpful in understanding the context of one's own study. We believe that known risks include prematurity, poor prenatal care, low socioeconomic status, non-white ethnicity, large size of the mother, younger or older mothers, smoking, alcohol consumption and a host of other factors. Electric and magnetic field exposures are not known risk factors but have not been studied extensively. Therefore we wish to study them. Cohort Study The "What will happen to me?" study follows a group of healthy people with different levels of exposure and assesses what happens to their health over time. It is a desirable design because exposure precedes the health outcome — a condition necessary for causation — and is less subject to bias because exposure is evaluated before the health status is known. The cohort study is also expensive, time-consuming and the most logistically difficult of all the studies. It is most useful for relatively common diseases. To assess suitability, we find out the commonality......
