Techniques
Gothic Literature, sometimes referred to as Gothic horror, is a genre of literature that combines elements of both horror and romance. The Gothic literature feel is achieved through manipulating literature elements to portray the story or poem how the writer/speaker wants. There are ten main elements that can be manipulated; the setting, the environment, atmosphere, protagonists, emotions, damsels in distress, foreboding, the supernatural, decay of characters, and finally, drama. When writing gothic literature one must use their personal techniques in manipulating the elements to achieve the gothic qualities desired; William Faulkner, Edgar Allan Poe, and Sylvia Plath all use different techniques in their writing and this is what gives each of their pieces of literature a different feel. For example in William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily he uses techniques unique to himself. Such as, writing the story in an alternating kind of way to help the readers to carry the action forward in their own minds by suggesting doubt in the story line, this allows us to be surprised at the end when we find out what really happens. This back and forth style of writing is prominent throughout the whole story, but the biggest example is that Emily starts out dead and then the writer proceeds to continue the rest of the story from back when she was alive. His story also has a creepy setting where anything can happen, which creates suspense. Emily's house is extremely run down, "only Miss Emily's house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps- an eyesore among eyesores" (Faulkner 34). The writer takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride by alternating tension and suspense throughout the story, which keeps the reader on the edge of…...

Modulation Techniques

...Modulation Techniques Modulation is the process in which a signal is entered into and transmitted by a signal carrier. There are several ways signals can be modulated and differ based on the equipment and technique utilized. Three common ways that signals are transmitted include a 56K modem, an asymmetrical digital subscriber line (ADSL), and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi). Each of these methods are effective means of transmitting a digital signal, however, the 56K modem is all but phased out in favor of Wi-Fi which has evolved by way of ADSL. The 56K modem offers signal modulation at 56 Kbps over a telephone network. The maximum available speed with a 56K modem is actually 64 Kbps and requires a nearly flawless digital connection at the transmitting and receiving end which is seldom available. The signal originates from the user’s Internet Service Provider’s office (usually as a digital signal) and is then converted to an analog signal by the telephone company. It is then the job of the user’s modem to convert the analog signal from the telephone company into a digital signal. The modem accomplishes this task by reading the amplitudes of the signal as an 8-bit symbol and uses an 8 kHz clock to time the signal as it is received in order to decode the data (Lawyer, 2007). As telephone companies increased their supply of internet access the demand for faster signal transmission opened the door for ADSL. Voice transmission over an ADSL only uses about 3 kHz of the over 1...

Behavioral Techniques

...The normal functioning of a human is largely dependent on the behaviours which relates to the central nervous system; hence behavioral techniques have been used in both animal and human model to further understand the central nervous system. These tests have been widely used to look at the pharmalogical efficacy and the mechanism of depression, anxiety, addiction, memory other mental complications. These techniques are relatively more cost efficient, simple, and easy to conduct, therefore it is widely used. The aim of this paper is to review the advantages, and disadvantages of such techniques and what have been discovered using such techniques. DEPRESSION Depression is a growing concern around the world, and anti-depressants available are not always effect for each individual. In addition, the therapeutic effect of all anti-depressant can be only seen only after a few weeks after administration, therefore having a much delayed therapeutic effect (Lopex-Rodriguez et al., 2004). Hence the forced swim test (FST) is used in numerous studies in expectation to help improve the efficacy and development of antidepressants. The FST, also known as the “behavioural despair test”, due to its ease of use, and inter-lab reliability and specificity, it is very common technique to assess depression and assess efficacy of antidepressant in animal models, typically in rodents. In a FST, a rodent is placed in a pool filled with water which rodents cannot escape from. Data observed are......

Estimating Techniques

...A. Poorly Defined Milestone’s: Milestones allow project management to much more accurately determine whether the project is going as per schedule or not. So, if the milestones are not well defined it will be hard for a project manager to know if the project is going as planned or no. This problem can be overcome while keeping the following things while defining a milestone * The goals & timeline for completion. * The criteria for success. * Brief rationale. * Milestones are not a task to be completed; they are goals to be achieved. B. Poor Estimating techniques: A common reason for cost overruns is the inaccuracy of cost estimates. When the bids for subcontracts or the actual costs come in, they are often higher than anticipated. Such cost overruns are due either to incorrect estimates or to changed conditions in the marketplace. This problem can be overcome by reviewing cost estimates before placing orders to identify mistakes or changed conditions. An overall review may find that increases in some areas are compensated by decreases in others. You may be able to adjust requirements to reduce costs or seek out lower-cost suppliers. Advising the business owners or managers of possible higher costs at this stage gives them the option of making changes and maintaining their budgets. C. A missing PERT/CPM Chart: A PERT & CPM chart’s are project management tools used to schedule, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project. Missing...

Sampling Techniques

...Sampling techniques: Advantages and disadvantages Technique | Descriptions | Advantages | Disadvantages | Simple random | Random sample from whole population | Highly representative if all subjects participate; the ideal | Not possible without complete list of population members; potentially uneconomical to achieve; can be disruptive to isolate members from a group; time-scale may be too long, data/sample could change | Stratified random | Random sample from identifiable groups (strata), subgroups, etc. | Can ensure that specific groups are represented, even proportionally, in the sample(s) (e.g., by gender), by selecting individuals from strata list | More complex, requires greater effort than simple random; strata must be carefully defined | Cluster | Random samples of successive clusters of subjects (e.g., by institution) until small groups are chosen as units | Possible to select randomly when no single list of population members exists, but local lists do; data collected on groups may avoid introduction of confounding by isolating members | Clusters in a level must be equivalent and some natural ones are not for essential characteristics (e.g., geographic: numbers equal, but unemployment rates differ) | Stage | Combination of cluster (randomly selecting clusters) and random or stratified random sampling of individuals | Can make up probability sample by random at stages and within groups; possible to select random sample when population lists are very localized...

Visualization Techniques

...Visualization Techniques Improve Recall of Word Pairs Samantha M. Vitolo Western New England University Abstract A study was done at Western New England University with 20 participants, ranging from the ages 17-19 in an Introduction to Psychology class. The students were separated into two groups, Group A and Group B. The participants in Group A were given a set of simple instructions that didn’t advise them to use any techniques. On the other hand, Group B received a set of directions that informed them of visualization techniques to use. Group B was given the visualization techniques to help remember the word associations they were asked to make. The set of directions each group was given was different in order to see how well visualization techniques improve memory recall. Once the data were collected it was clear that the participants in Group B had greater accuracy in recalling the word associations. Results support the use of visualization techniques to improve studying, and for remembering information across the day. Visualization Techniques Improve Recall of Word Pairs According to Granaas and Straub (1992), interactive imagery is a mnemonic device, which greatly improves ones ability to recall items. Mnemonic devices are techniques a person can use to help them improve their ability to remember something.

Sampling Technique

...Explain each sampling technique discussed in the “Visual Learner: Statistics” in your own words, and give examples of when each technique would be appropriate. Statistical Hypotheses: There are two types of statistical hypotheses to include null and alternative hypothesis. Null Hypothesis - Samples observations resulting purely by chance. Alternative Hypothesis - Sample observations influenced by non-random causes. In example, when determining the end result in a coin flip. A null hypothesis may result in half Heads and half in Tails. However, the alternative hypothesis may reflect differently with the number of Heads and the number of Tails received. In conclusion, if the number of flips totaled 100 times, resulting in 60 Heads and 40 Tails, we would determine the null hypothesis would be rejected and not of use. The coin would be deemed as not fair nor balanced. Blocking - Is the act of grouping experimental units into block segments with comparable characteristics that may influence the end result of the experiment. The design with both control and randomization, are taken into consideration (Easton, Valerie J 2014). In example, a study being carried out has a total of 100 subjects. The plan is to divide the subjects into random, yet equally split groups of four. Census - Is data collected from every individual within a population and calculated to assist with achieving statistical information. An example of a census is the United States Census. It...

Recruitment Techniques

...ASSIGNMENT TITLE…….ANALYSE USING EXAMPLES, THE SIX COMMON RECRUITMENT TECHNIQUES INTRODUCTION Recruitment is a fundamental human resource function that overarches many different aspects of the organisation’s overall performance. There are many different ways to recruit new talent to a company, all of which have pros and cons. Therefore recruiters employ a number of different techniques to search and obtain the best possible candidates from the multitude of interested employees. In this paper, the writer seeks to analyse common recruitment techniques which include advertising, head hunting, labour agencies, referrals, existing employees and e-recruitment. The key terms to be defined are recruitment and recruitment techniques. DEFINITION OF KEY TERMS Recruitment According to Beach (1987) recruitment is the development and maintenance of adequate manpower sources. It involves the creation of a pool of available labour from which the organisation can draw when additional employees are needed. Tyson and Fell (1996:28) define recruitment as, “the process of finding and hiring the best qualified candidate (from within or outside of an organisation) for a job opening, in a timely and cost effective manner.” Therefore, from the two definitions above, it can be said that the recruitment process involves analyzing the requirements of a job, attracting employees to that job at lower cost, ensuring that there are equal opportunity for employment for all potential applicants.

Techniques

...------------------------------------------------- Techniques and terms[edit] All social engineering techniques are based on specific attributes of human decision-making known as cognitive biases.[3] These biases, sometimes called "bugs in the human hardware," are exploited in various combinations to create attack techniques, some of which are listed here: Pretexting[edit] Pretexting (adj. pretextual), also known in the UK as blagging or bohoing, is the act of creating and using an invented scenario (the pretext) to engage a targeted victim in a manner that increases the chance the victim will divulge information or perform actions that would be unlikely in ordinary circumstances.[4] An elaborate lie, it most often involves some prior research or setup and the use of this information for impersonation (e.g., date of birth, Social Security number, last bill amount) to establish legitimacy in the mind of the target.[5] This technique can be used to fool a business into disclosing customer information as well as by private investigators to obtain telephone records, utility records, banking records and other information directly from company service representatives. The information can then be used to establish even greater legitimacy under tougher questioning with a manager, e.g., to make account changes, get specific balances, etc. Pretexting can also be used to impersonate co-workers, police, bank, tax authorities, clergy, insurance investigators — or any other individual...

Aseptic Technique

...This essay it will explain the Aseptic Technique and how it is used to prevent the spread of infection in wounds. It will also give a personal experience of performing the technique. Hart (2004) states the principle of Aseptic Technique is to prevent the spread of micro organisms to wounds and to protects the nurse and patient from healthcare-associated infections (HCIA). The technique used for less invasive procedures such as intravenous drugs and wound care is the Aseptic No-touch Technique (ANTT) (Pratt et al 2007). The key aspects of this skill are consent, preparation and prevention. The nurse must obtain consent from the patient and explain the procedure. The patient must be made comfortable and placed in a suitable position as the technique may take some time to conduct, the nurse must be able to have access to the wound to prevent any additional contamination. ANTT should be carried out in a quite calm environment, cleaning should be done at least half an hour before and adjacent windows should be shut as this allows for airborne contamination to settle (Dietze et al 2001). Preparation is vital for the ANTT, equipment used should be sterile, in date, undamaged and that correct storage has been used (Department of Health DoH 2003). Guidelines on hand washing have been devised by DoH (2005) as it recognises that most HCIAs are spread through inappropriate hand washing. Hands should be washed immediately before and after the ANTT to prevent the spread of......
