1. Using the MM207 Student Data Set: a) What is the correlation between student cumulative GPA and the number of hours spent on school work each week? Be sure to include the computations or StatCrunch output to support your answer.

Correlation between Q10 What is your cumulative Grade Point Average at Kaplan University? and Q11 How many hours do you spend on school work each week? is: 0.27817234

b) Is the correlation what you expected?

I usually get better grades when I spend more time doing school work so I assumed a high correlation.

c) Does the number of hours spent on school work have a causal relationship with the GPA?

Yes, more hours spent seems to effect the causes of better grades

d) What would be the predicted GPA for a student who spends 16 hours per week on school work? Be sure to include the computations or StatCrunch output to support your prediction. [pic]

From this visual I would estimate students that study about 16 hours per week will have around a 3.5 or higher GPA. There…...

Conflict in Glory

...1 LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BABPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY THE PEACE MAKING PASTOR: A BIBLICAL GUIDE TO RESOLVING CHURCH CONFLICT A REPORT SUBMITTED TO DR. DONALD HICKS BY JAMES E. JORDAN LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA AUGUST 11, 2011 2 Contents Introduction Biblical Background Antithesis Examination God-ward Perspective Conclusion Bibliography 3 3 4 5 5 7 3 Introduction In this report, I will examine an example where conflict is the substance of the text within the Bible. I will discuss how the story unfolds and demonstrate the antithesis between the children of God and the children of Man. Antithesis is defined as “contrast or opposition.”1 I will also discuss God-ward perspective in relation to conflict. Biblical Background “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23 [KJV]). This verse out of the book of Romans is a clear example of antithesis within the Bible. When the entire book of Romans is reviewed it is obvious that the author of this letter to Rome is Paul (Romans 1:1; [KJV]). Paul writes this letter to the Romans somewhere between the times of A.D. 55 and 58 and occurred “during his third missionary journey.”2 It is rightly placed first among the Epistles because it is the most complete exposition in the New Testament of the central truths of Christianity. Paul needed to visit the Roman Christians and his desire to communicate to them the great doctrines of grace......

USA fell as one nation, and to come out strong on the other side of the global financial crisis, they need to together, which he stated in his speech “We are an American family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.” ll. 9-10. He masters the rhetorical features. With his charm and skill of making his speeches rhythmical, he manages to get the audience on a euphoric wave. This fills them with hope, and a strong fighting spirit. He uses the linguistic feature, antithesis. Antithesis is defined as two opposites are juxtaposed in a sentence or phrase. “It doesn't matter whether you're black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you're willing to try.” ll. 54-56. In this quote antithesis’s function is to get the American peoples attention, and remind the American people as one nation they can move America forward. His use of antithesis, with a dynamical presentation, creates a musical tone. He creates an identical atmosphere as it is in the church of black people. Obama’s goal of his speech is to unite the people of America. He does that. “This country has more wealth than any nation, but that's not what makes us rich…. What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth.” ll. 15-20. He uses the linguistic feature, anaphora.

Antithesis of a Midsummers Night Dream

...Antithesis in A Midsummer Night’s Dream In Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's, there are a lot of themes that are evident. Some of these themes included order, disorder, reality, dream, harmony, enmity, amity, harmony, and dissonance are just to name a few. Normally, none of these themes would even be present at the same time because of their contrasting nature and the fact that they are complete opposites. However, the fact that not only are these themes present at the same time, but they even interact with one another inside of the play to create events within the play is the epitome of antithesis. Shakespeare even includes character antitheses that intertwine with the themes. Furthermore, in A Midsummer Night's Dream the main overshadowing theme is the concept of antithesis because the fact that all of the themes present in the play have opposites that can be clearly be seen and the fact that Shakespeare places next to each other in contrasting beauty show antithesis. In this play, none of these themes would exist without their opposites. Initially, one of the examples of antithesis, and probably the most prevalent, in A Midsummer Night's Dream is the theme of disorder and its companion order. Disorder is a dominant theme in this play because it is seen on nearly every page and in many aspects of the play. In most cases, the disorder is cause by the fairies. These fairies are part of the dream world that actually controls the real world. One of the main fairies that...

Hegelian Dialectics and It’s Implication to Thinking and Education

...method of argument for resolving disagreements. His method of arriving at the truth by the exchange of logical arguments is a system of thought process still use to this day. To put it simply, the basis of Hegelianism dictates that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites. Good / Evil, Right / Wrong, Left / Right. For example when people are talking about 2 political parties, Labor or Liberal, what they’re actually referring to, without realising it, is the thesis and the antithesis based off the Hegelian Dialectic. The only real debate that occurs is just the minor differences between those two parties. Nothing is said or done about the issues that neither left or right is discussing. This in particular will become more apparent as the election draws near. The Hegelian Principle is a process intended to produce Oneness of Mind through a process of 1) thesis:  embodying a particular view or position; 2) antithesis:  providing an opposing or contrary position; and 3) synthesis:  which reconciles the two previous positions and then becomes the basis of a new thesis…in accordance with the laws of dialectical materialism.  In theory, through a continual process of evolution, Oneness of Mind is achieved.  This process can also be used to 1) create crisis, 2) opposition to crisis, to 3) effect the wanted solution. The purpose of the dialectic method of reasoning is resolution of disagreement through rational discussion, and,......

Hamlet the Drama Behind It All

...vengeance on his father’s death and seek revenge on Claudius for his father’s murderer. True this can be seen as a "tragedy" but Hamlet isn't just any tragedy—it's a classic and revengeful tragedy! One literary device that Shakespeare uses in this particular play is antithesis. Antithesis is contrary ideas expressed in a balanced sentence. He uses this literary device when he writes, “To be, or not to be, that is the question” (Barnet, Burto, & Cain, 2014). He is expressing opposite ideas of being or not being, living or dying. Another, antithesis example in Hamlet, is when Claudius asks Hamlet about the clouds. Hamlet replies, “Too much in the sun” (Barnet, Burto, & Cain, 2014). Hamlet contrasts imagery of clouds to rain and storms. Also the grief to imagery of sun to joy and happiness. As he does this sarcastically, he also puns the word “sun” with “son” as he is bitter about losing his father and having Claudius as his new “father.” Shakespeare uses these antitheses to heighten the drama and describe the relationship between these two men. Hamlet is able to draw attention to the fact that he does not directly answer his uncle’s questions, but is able to describe his feelings instead by using antithesis. This antithesis shows that Hamlet is tired of being the son of Claudius; he is the direct opposition than what his uncle believes. Shakespeare also uses allusions to express the thoughts of Hamlet and his feelings towards the people around him. Hamlet’s mom, Queen......

Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde

...them into their own lives. Many psychologists and philosophers have also seen this and have done research to see why this has come to be. George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, a philosopher, began to research the duality of human nature before this story was even written; he concluded that every conflict has a thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Hegel is easily able to explain the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde by using his own Hegelian Dialectic. In the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll is determined to find a way to let his alter ego; his other personality, the evil Mr. Hyde allows Dr. Jekyll to release the anger that he keeps in that are caused by the social ‘norms’ that are present in this time period. In comparison Dr. Jekyll is seen as being a cultures young man that had many of the characteristics or a well to do man in the Victorian time period. Mr. Hyde on the other hand is seen as vulgar, disrespectful and is seen as a monster throughout the book. Both personalities of Dr. Jekyll try and balance each other out but are not able to which leads to the ultimate self destruction of both. The idea of the Hegelian Dialect, that everything have a thesis, antithesis, as well as synthesis can be seen throughout the book as a reflection of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One of the first impression that we receive of Jekyll is how much education he has. The author first brings up Jekyll when Mr. Utterson, Jekyll’s friend who is a lawyer, sits down to look over Jekyll’s will.......

With his charm and skill of making his speeches rhythmical, he manages to get the audience emotional and hopeful. This fills them with hope, and a strong fighting spirit. He uses the linguistic feature, antithesis. Antithesis is defined as two opposites are juxtaposed in a sentence or phrase. “And that quintessentially American scene, that was the scene that was shattered by a gunman's bullets” (Obama).

Philosophy 210 – Tutorial Assignment 3 Steve Biko Dialectical Reasoning

...for his cause. The philosophy of Black Consciousness is expresses group pride, Untimely Biko refers to Black Consciousness as a way of life (a revolution), he continuously reinforces the idea that “the black man of the need to rally together with his brothers around the cause of their oppression”. This statement will become important later when explain Biko’s justification behind his path to this synthesis. According to Biko, there has been a formulation of two different dialectics in South Africa. The first from the Liberals, which states, the thesis is apartheid, the antithesis is non-racialism, and finally the synthesis is integration as the solution, however according to Biko this is merely “very feebly defined” On the other hand the second dialectic is one formed by the ideology behind Black Consciousness, Which states that the thesis is a strong white racism and as a result of this the antithesis must be a strong black solidarity, and finally the synthesis is hoped to be a humanity where the political powers will have no place. From the two dialectics above, Biko obviously agreed with the second. Therefore the Anti-thesis and the Synthesis that he identifies are: * Ant-thesis – “ a strong solidarity amongst the blacks on whom this white racism (thesis) seeks to prey “ * Synthesis –“ hope to reach some kind of balance- a true humanity where power politics will have no place “ Biko’s postulation of his synthesis does in fact follow logically from his......

...1. ”Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.” (page 2 l. 12-13) In this example, King uses two rhetorical devices, alliteration and antithesis. Alliteration is the repetition of consonants in the beginning of sentences. Antithesis is the way a speaker makes sharp a contrast between two ideas. In this context, they were used with the intent of keeping the listener interested, appealing to the pathos.In the following quote, ”Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand tonight, signed the Emancipation Proclamation” (page 1 l.3-4), King uses sponsorship effect, as a rhetorical device. He appeals to the ethos, by introducing his speech with the idea of a former president, he means to raise the confidence the public has with him. On this quote, ”Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. (…) Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children” (page 2 l. 12-15) King used an anaphora, which is beginning sentences with the same word or words. He used this to keep the public interested, appealing once more to their pathos.2. Kings speech was done in the time of the civil rights movement. The idea of ending segregation was the root of inspiration to his speech. The location in which this speech was done, together with the mentions King made to reinforce his ideas surely had an impact in making this, one of the most important speeches in American history.

Anthropomorphism Anthropomorphism can be understood to be the act of lending a human quality, emotion or ambition to a non-human object or being. This act of lending a human element to a non-human subject is often employed in order to endear the latter to the readers or audience and increase the level of relativity between the two while also lending character to the subject. 10. Antithesis An antithesis is used when the writer employs two sentences of contrasting meanings in close proximity to one another. Whether they are words or phrases of the same sentence, an antithesis is used to create a stark contrast using two divergent elements that come together to create one uniform whole. An antithesis plays on the complementary property of opposites to create one vivid picture. The purpose of using an antithesis in literature is to create a balance between opposite qualities and lend a greater insight into the subject....

...quality of God, but God can have no opposite, since God is everything in the pantheist view of the world. Similarly, the idea that God created the world out of "nothing" is to be interpreted as the "nothing" here is synonymous with God.[13] [edit] G. W. F. Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831) is the philosopher who brought the dialectical method to its pinnacle of development. According to Hegel in Science of Logic the dialectical methods consists of three steps. First, a thesis is given, which can be any postulate in logic. Second, the antithesis of the thesis is formed and finally a synthesis incorporating both thesis and antithesis. Hegel believed that no postulate taken by itself can be completely true. Only the whole can be true and the dialectical synthesis was the means by which the whole could be examined in relation to a specific postulate. Truth consists of the whole process, separating out thesis, antithesis or synthesis as a stand-alone statement results in something that is in some way or other untrue. The concept of "nothing" arises in Hegel right at the beginning of his Logic. The whole is called by Hegel the "Absolute" and is to be viewed as something spiritual. Hegel then has;[14] * Thesis: The Absolute is Pure Being...
