This essay will be summarizing most the main and important ideas used in Benedict Carey’s piece called, “Judging Honesty by Words, Not Fidgets”. The audience of this piece would be anyone interested in law enforcement and might just want a summary of Carey’s piece and don’t feel like reading the whole excerpt. For those in the audience who have not read this excerpt it is mainly for the purpose of law enforcers, officers, and even some people who just want to learn the trick of lying and getting away with it. Benedict Carey really wanted to go over the methods of interrogation that have been used throughout our history. Using some research he tried to find the methods that would most efficiently find the true criminals in an interrogation and help out our future law enforcers. When people think of an interrogation some of the first things that usually comes to mind is questioning, good-cop, bad-cop, lie detectors, and two way mirrors. Well these methods have been used for some time now and trying to get answers out of people is not always the easiest. Sometimes cops cannot even tell if someone is lying or not because some people just get good at telling lies. The audience would think that with today’s technology it would be a little easier than what it is. This is exactly what forensic scientists have been trying to do. They are finding new techniques they hope will give interrogators and other law enforcers a better chance to cypher out the criminals from the truth tellers. “With the new techniques being tested they have found that it doesn’t always matter about the body language of the person getting interrogated but more about the content of what the person says”(Carey 11) . Instead of going straight to a suspect and rumbling on about how you think they are the criminal, the officers now try to get the most evidence possible before interrogation. This means…...

...Screen Verdict: DRAW Camera: Overlooking the part where Tim Cook claimed that the iPhone 5 camera would make children look happier, the new camera is more than respectable, and at 8MP is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S3. While tests showed both were capable 8MP shooters, the iPhone 5 performed better in low light conditions. Camera Verdict: iPhone 5 better in low-light conditions Design: The iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, and of course is smaller, thinner and lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S3. There’s still the glass and aluminum pairing for the iPhone 5, and the shiny trim is now tinted. It’s just more quality than the S3 to the eyes. The scion of any tech giant shouldn’t look like it came from a dime store. Design Verdict: iPhone 5 has the look Power: Theoretically the Samsung Galaxy S31.4GHz Exynos chip should trounce the A6 processor in the iPhone 5. It seems after some benchmark tests, though, that the dual-core A6 chip is faster compared to S3 on ICS, and slightly behind against S3 on Jelly Bean. We need a few more results before confirming this, but the pair are the fastest smartphones out there right now. Power Verdict: Draw Connectivity: The new dock on the iPhone 5 means that to keep all your old Apple accessories with you you’ll need to buy that $30 adapter. However, you have a slimmer phone now. There’s still no NFC, removable battery or expandable memory though. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has microSD support and HML......

Is Mma Safer Than Other Contact Sports?

...Is MMA Safer Than Other Contact Sports The two competitors had been preparing for months for these fifteen minutes of fame. The bell rings and now the duel finally begins. A few moments go by while they size each other up and find their range. Then the action really begins; their fists are flying. A few punches are landed when all of the sudden, BOOM! A swiftly thrown roundhouse kick lands directly to the side of one of the combatants heads. The referee then steps in, having been trained to recognize the symptoms of a fighter being knocked unconscious, and the fight is over. The fighter is quick to get back to his feet and protests the referee’s decision to end the fight, but there is no changing a ref’s decision once it has been made. Upon further review it is obvious the fighter was knocked out and regained consciousness only when his head hit the mat. The stoppage has allowed him to avoid sustaining any more damage after having been knocked out and he will live to fight another day. Almost as long as there has been civilization there has been a dark and competitive side to mankind. This dark side is often what fuels our competitive nature, and causes the creation of almost gladiatorial like sports to test or strength and abilities against others. The roman’s had their gladiators, and in the modern age we have sports such as MMA. While there are a few sports whose all out brutality have caused them to be scrutinized by lawmakers and medical professionals......

Evaluation and Training Plan for a Safer Workplace

The restaurant is owned by a couple, the husband being the head chef and the wife managing the business side, along with their daughter to manage the bar and the four kitchen hands and chefs, also family members, this is a tightly run family business. The eight causal waitresses were mainly high school students and only two over 18 year olds to manage the bar. The waitresses’ duties included customer service, setting tables, dishes, phone orders for takeaway, dining in orders, serving drinks and food, checking on and clearing tables. The business is singularly run. The restaurant prides itself on serving authentic Cantonese cuisine within their relaxed, comfortable dining environment. The restaurant could hold around 60 guests with the option of an over flow room, if not having been hired out for a function, could also hold another 50 guests. Open for dinner six nights a week, and Sunday lunch. The restaurants environment is set as fun for all the family while the working environment could get to be more stressful than necessary. Lengths of shifts could range from two-seven hours depending on how busy the night got. Although shifts barely went longer than five hours, breaks for staff were something that was not managed well. Waitresses complained that the owner did not respect them or take responsibility if she was...

Higher Education for Nurses Means Safer Care for the Patients

...Higher Education for Nurses Means Safer Care for the Patients Ethan Hu May 29, 2014 Higher Education for Nurses Means Safer Care for the Patients I. Introduction: In today ever changing world of healthcare, where technologies become more advance and patients become sicker, there is an urgent call from many nursing associations, especially the American Nurse Association, which encourages nurses to pursuit higher education. While two-year prepared nurses have the same set of clinical skills as four-year prepared nurses, there are data that show association between better patient outcomes and higher educational level of nurses. This paper will focus on the differences in competences, approaches as well as clinical decisions made by associate nurses and baccalaureate nurses and how they affect patient outcomes. II. Definitions: According to American Nurses Association, nurses who have completed any qualified two-year degree nursing program offered by any community or private colleges and successfully pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) are considered Associate Degree Nurse (ADN). ADNs are only prepared to meet the standard defined by the nurse’s scope of practice in order to practice nursing at an entry-level. ("How to Become a Nurse," n.d.) Baccalaureate nurses are those who have gone though a four-year program and received a degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BS/BSN). Besides possessing the basic skills required to enter practice,......

...Ghadere Salah PHI-101-013 Rationalism VS Empiricism They say : Hume says knowledge comes from the way one’s mind perceived the physical world. 1.Hume claimed that people perceive the world in two ways – through impressions which are one’s senses and through ideas which are one’s thoughts. 2.Hume claimed that there was no such thing as an innate idea, which is an idea present in the human mind that was not created through some sort of experience. 3.Hume asserted that nothing remains the same, but that one’s mind perceives what is similar as being the same if change occurs gradually rather than abruptly. We say/I say: Descartes says knowledge lies in the mind not the senses. 1.Descartes claims that the way we perceive things comes from thinking. 2.Descartes claimed that we often sense things that don’t physically exist in the external world. 3.Descartes claimed if any component of something was in the very least questionable, then any conclusion drawn from it would be at the most questionable. 4.Descartes reasoned that our senses often misinterpret the physical world. 5.Descartes claimed while it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Conclusion: Descartes wrote, “I find here that thought is an attribute that belongs to me; it alone cannot be separated from me”. While it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Descartes claims that he is just “a thing which thinks”. His proof is that he can question his own......

...Worldview Assignment What is a worldview? The term “worldview” can be defined numerous ways all depending upon who is answering this question. After reading this week’s chapters we learn that a world view is made up for 3 components, all of which can define the term. First, a worldview is a person’s philosophy on life. Second, it is a framework that a person brings to decision-making. Third it is the way a person interprets life and the world around them. The question of origin can be answered within the first chapters of the Bible. In Genesis 1:3-19, we read of the creation of the Heavens and Earth. God saw a formless, empty darkness and filled it with His creations. We then read in Genesis 2:7 that God created man from the dust of the Earth to start populating the Earth he had shaped. The second question that of identity, can be explained in Psalm 8:4-8. Mankind was created to rule over the animals, not to be subjugated by them. We are also taught of identity in 1st Timothy chapter 2 (1 Timothy 2:1-15). In this chapter we learn to identify ourselves as individuals and as Christians. Our purpose on Earth is to know God. We are taught this in the book of John (John 17:3). God didn’t create us so we would not look to Him, He created us to follow Him and look to Him for guidance in our everyday lives. Our purpose is also to teach others about Christ and bring non-believers to Him (Matthew 5:14-16). We are to be a light for God and shine our lights for others to see.......

...Charlene Wu Mrs. Zachik World Literature November 8, 2014 A Thousand Splendid Suns By Khaled Hosseini, Riverhead Books, May 22 2007 Laila, from Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, is a product of her environment. She’s shaped by warfare, by her family and by her education. Laila was born in the city of Kabul, Afghanistan. In the course of time Kabul came under siege and became a war-torn city. “It wasn’t so much the whistling [of the shells] being fired itself, Laila thought later, but the seconds between the start of it and [its] impact, like a defendant about to hear the verdict” (Hosseini. 2.24.1-3). Every day Laila spends in war-torn Kabul she is at risk. The image of herself as a “defendant” symbolizes this. Laila is shaped by fear and by the warfare. Her judge [the shells], in her eyes is a crazy person, handing out punishments indiscriminately and without any regard for human life. Laila also surrounding by her parents.Laila knew that her “Mammy didn’t understand. She [Mammy] didn’t understand that if she looked into a mirror, she would find the one unfailing conviction of Babi’s [her husband] life --looking right back at her” [Hosseini. 2.21.59]. Mammy and [her husband] Babi had a difficult relationship. Mammy blamed him for the death of Ahmad and Noor. But it’s Babi’s unflinching devotion to Mammy that ultimately shown through, as Mammy eventually fell back in love with Babi. This love had an impact on Laila and how she viewed her......

Marijuana Is Safer Than Alcohol

...Marijuana should be legalized for recreational purposes to anyone over 21 years of age. Jason Anderson COM/156 MARCH 2, 2011 Colleen Vosicky Marijuana should be legalized for recreational purposes to anyone over 21 years of age. Marijuana has been proven to be safer than alcohol, yet marijuana is against the law. Alcohol is known to contribute to acts of violence and crime, while in most cases cannabis can reduce aggression in its users. “In last year’s cases of reported violent crime three million offenders had been drinking. Almost all cases of date rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence had some kind of connection to alcohol” (Medical Fact: Marijuana is Safer Than Alcohol, 2009). Marijuana has not been linked or has been left absent from any of those type of crime reports. Alcohol-related traffic accidents have gone down in the past 20 to 30 years; however, they still kill approximately 14,000 lives every year according to MADD. The numbers for THC-related traffic deaths are very rare because most of the deaths in these cases the driver was also under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. However, “there is evidence from a number of studies, including some laboratory simulations that give power to the idea that people under the influence of cannabis seem to be aware of their impaired motor skills, and two tend to drive below the posted speed limit. People under the influence of alcohol are more likely to unaware or defiant about their impaired state...

...My aunt to me the greatest person in this world, one of a kind and one in a million Sometimes I know the words to say, Give thanks for all you've done, But then they fly up and away, As quickly as they come, She has the biggest heart with the most caring touch, which she shares with so many of us. How could I possibly thank you enough, The one who makes me whole, The one to whom I owe my life, The forming of my soul, Her soul is made of pure love, yet she's worth way more than gold, The one who tucked me in at night, The one who stopped my crying, The one who is an expert At knowing when I am lying, In my eyes, she will always be, the most beautiful person to walk the earth. The one who makes such sacrifices, To always put me first, Who lets me test my broken wings No matter how much it hurts, To me she's the smartest woman I know, and it truly does show. For accepting me as I changed Accepting all my flaws, Not loving ‘cause you had to, But loving just because, There is no one that compares to her, no one that even comes close, For never giving up on me, Even when your nerves had reached the end, For always being proud of me, For being my best friend, On a high pedestal is where I hold her, for I admire her so much more than she knows. Having her apart of my life is the greatest gift of all, being in her presence is god's blessing to me. Looking deep inside of her, I see that strong, wise woman I hope to become, So thank you Auntie for everything, And most of all thank......

Amy was an equestrian, and that meant early mornings and late nights were the inevitable. Today was the first morning of the APHA World show in Fort-worth, Texas. Amy Smith never thought that she would compete on the American Paint Horse Circuit due to the level of difficulty but she also knew these were the steps she had to take to be a World Champion. This year was different for Amy and Cowboy, It was their last year of Youth 14-18 before she went on to be a Amateur. Amy knew that after this she could no longer compete with cowboy because Amateur level was too competitive. All the handwork was paying off as her and Cowboy moved to the top of the list in points on the circuit. This morning she knew she had to do good to keep up the points and qualify for the High Point. Amy walked towards the barn and thought about how hard her and Cowboy worked everyday to get where they were. "Amy! Good Morning! Are you ready for today?" Amy's trainer Heather hollered across the isle way of the barn. "I'm very ready, its just a matter of getting Cowboy ready.
