The Underestimated Importance of Luck in Crime Solving Detective fiction is a branch of crime fiction that centers upon the investigation of a crime, usually murder, by a detective. It is the most popular form of hardboiled crime fiction and mystery fiction. In the story, the detective uses reasoning to piece together various clues left behind by the perpetrator to form a coherent story of how the murder took place. It is even written down as rules that “the culprit must be determined by logical deductions” and “the means of detecting it (the murder), must be rational and scientific” (Van Dine, 1928). Through the years, three major forms of reasoning have been frequently used to solve the cases- deductive, inductive and abductive. Although these three methods vary in terms of uncertainty involved, a common intuition that can be inferred about gaining knowledge from the rules is that knowledge is true belief that has been acquired in a non-accidental or non-lucky fashion. However, I will be drawing on specifically three types of luck- evidential epistemic luck, content epistemic luck and pure luck, and how luck is often underestimated as a contributing factor towards solving crimes along with reasoning. The first type of luck I will be discussing is evidential epistemic luck, where the detective is lucky to be able to possess certain knowledge in the first place (Pritchard, 2005). The animated series “Detective Conan” follows the adventures of Kudo Shinichi, a teenage detective prodigy who was inadvertently shrunk into a child’s body after he was forced to ingest poison fed by members of a criminal syndicate. He took the name Edogawa Conan to hide his true identity and goes to live with his childhood friend Mouri Ran and her father, Mouri Kogoro, and tries to use Kogoro’s running albeit failing detective agency as an avenue to find out the truth of the…...

...The total jeans sales accounted for approximately 7% of the total $166 billion made in 2001 with 569 million pairs sold. Experts in the apparel industry forecasted an interesting year for sales in 2002, stating that most categories of apparel were going to level out or even decrease. Jeans were just one of the different categories of pants along with casual pants and dress pants, and jeans had dominated the category until the 1990's when sales had tapered off when consumers migrated over to khakis, cargo pants, and other types of pants. However, when new innovations in fabrics and style in the jeans category came to the forefront in 2001, people's tastes began to switch back over to jeans. In 2002, jeans sales were predicted to grow by 2-3%. Another large constricting development in the jeans market was that the average price had dropped over the last decade due mainly to off-pricing and private-labels brands that were so popular in mega-stores such as Wal-Mart. The average price of jeans had dropped to approximately $20, and 40% had even been price-cut to levels below $20. Over half of the nineteen largest jeans brands in both men's and women's had lost their premium mostly attributed to discounting and trying to market on too many different channels. However, the fastest-growing retail channel was the mass merchants. So we can see why this was very conflicting for Levi's. One thing that was consistent over the last decade was the fact that jeans were versatile and truly......

...in cages along the street that vendors would kill so people could eat their brains. He was told it was the year of the monkey and eating the brains would bring wealth and good things. Live chickens were sold, too. One day, there were about one-hundred goats sacrificed in the street. After their throats were cut, they were held upside down; blood was everywhere. At restaurants, all the customers would eat with chopsticks out of the same big bowl. Many public restrooms did not have toilets or stalls. Men and women would use the same restroom and squat over a hole in the tile. There was a jug of water to pour down the hole afterwards. People didn’t wash their hands and he never saw any soap except at his hotel. They don’t always use toilet paper; their left hand is used to clean themselves and their right hand is for everything else (B. Browning, personal communication, July 16, 2012).

...Paper 3 In 1084 Bishop Rudiger of Speyer issued an official charter inviting Jews to settle in the city of Speyer (Germany) and establish a community there. It is one of the earliest documents of such sort. The charter provides important clues about the nature of Jewish communities in Medieval Europe, their legal status and their relationships with neighbors. The Hebrew report on p. 59 describes the circumstances under which Rudiger’s charter was given. Analyze both documents and what they tell us about the nature of Medieval Jewish communities in Europe. Answer the following questions: Why did Bishop Rudiger decide to invite Jews to settle in the city of Speyer? What, do you think, were an immediate cause and deeper reasons for his decision? What professional occupations were the Jews involved in? What was the legal status of the Jewish community? What rights and privileges did it have? What were its obligations? Who are the burghers? What were the relationships between them and the Jews? Why? A well-written paper will have a concise introduction to the general topic of the paper, a clear thesis statement, and a carefully developed argument with specific examples supporting the thesis statement.

...Persuasive Paper Part 3: Possible Disadvantages, Answers, with Visuals ENG215 Research and Writing Strayer University March 13, 2015 Persuasive Paper Part 3: Possible Disadvantages, Answers, with Visuals Paying students to pass standardized tests has been in the works for a while now. The idea of paying students a financial incentive to pass standardized tests came from families who would give money to their kids if they brought home a report card with good grades. Offering students some type of financial incentive to pass standardized tests would get the students attention. Most students don’t care whether they pass or fail school, offering them money in exchange for scoring high on standardized tests would give students a reason to pay attention and pass standardized tests (Flannery, 2015). Motivating students with a financial incentive is a good way to get them to pass standardized tests (Bettinger, 2008). Problems with Standardized Testing Standardized testing ramped up in 2002 from the No Child Left behind Act. This act was going to hold public schools to a high standard of education, by measuring the students’ scores on statewide standardized tests. The reasons that standardized tests are a problem is from the following reasons: 1. Test scores can’t accurately measure learning: Standardized tests does not allow students to express themselves because they are multiple-choice. Open-ended tests would allow students to express themselves. 2.......

Reflection Paper 3

...Daniel Atilla Helderman October 16, 2015 reflection paper 3: Shaping the future of solar power (Solyndra) After reading the case on “Shaping the future of solar power: climate change, industrial policy and free trade” I gained much clearer insight to the history and working of the solar energy industry. From personal experience, I have seen the recent increased use renewable energy, particularly wind and solar energy. Internationally, in Europe wind and solar energy as source of energy is not new revelation too me, many European countries, such as the Netherlands, my birthplace, are not new in utilizing wind and solar energies. What this case brought me to really learn was the involvement and the relationship of the U.S and China government in the solar energy industry. It came as no surprise to me that the U.S government was subsidizing the solar energy, however what came to light to me was the level of international competitiveness and political gridlock between China and the U.S in the solar energy industry. It was interesting to touch on the issue if governments should intervene in the market place. It became clear, that it was tough issue for the government to tackle, with one side of the government arguing that government intervention in the solar energy industry is hurtful and detrimental to business, highlighting the case of Solyndra bankruptcy. The other side, Obama administration, argues that the U.S needs to continue to subsidize and give tax break to......

Unit 3 Polarity Paper

...Unit 3 – Project Polarity Paper (Individual and Team) Polarity Paper (Individual and Team) 1. Polarities and polarity management A. Before you can learn about how the polarity management model works, you must first be able to understand what polarities actually are. Polarities are issues that are continuous and you can’t solve them or avoid them. Polarities are opposites which function best when both are present to balance with each other (Johnson, 1998). It is important to remember that a polarity is different than a problem, because a problem is something you solve and a polarity is something that you address and manage (Caldwell, 2011). Since this is the case you must find a different approach to deal with polarities or else things will just end up worse than they were. When using the polarity management model properly, it will make it much easier for those in charge to manage the polarities that they are dealing with. It also works the best when you It might be a little confusing at first for someone new to use the polarity management model efficiently, but it will help out tremendously when they do figure it out and they can handle the polarities they acknowledged.

...common. Now that today’s technology is expanding and growing which means that the reliance and dependence of these products is also growing. The dependence and the reliance are not the only two things that technology brings. The more reliance of these things causes cyber attacks which are gradually increasing the occurrence. It is harder to stop these attacks before they occur is more difficult than what can be expected but however it is not impossible. There is a trick to catching these attacks which is within programs and applications that the users uses which detects as well as notifies the user that there is an attack. This could be something like an anti-virus and/or a malware program or even a firewall. The purpose within this paper is to discuss cyber attacks as well as the steps involved and how to prevent them which was discussed in the article by Tony M. Damico entitled Cyber Attack Prevention for the Home User: How to Prevent a Cyber Attack (2009) and other sources Cyber Attack: What It Is A cyber attack is “an attempt to undermine or compromise the function of a computer-based system, or an attempt to track the online movements of individuals without their permission” (WiseGeek, 2011).

3 Idiots: Reaction Paper

...3 Idiots: Reaction Paper 3 Idiots is a story of true friendship, leadership and fulfilment of dreams. This is one of the best movies I have seen. I gained a lot of lessons in this masterpiece. This is a quite long movie yet worthwhile. Rancho, one of the main characters in the movie, is undeniably a great person, a great friend, a great leader and a great student. Though he did nasty things, he still done it for a good purpose. He never thought of his own sake. He was never selfish. He possesses a lot of qualities of an effective leader. Because of his principles in life, he was able to set the lives of the people around him. The part of the movie that really amazed me is the moment wherein they have to perform a vacuum delivery. Rancho really did well in making the students coordinate and make the delivery successful. That was really stunning This just crossed my mind, if all people will be like Rancho, I guess the whole world will be better but I know it will be hard because ‘Chatur’ and ‘Virus’ exist in real world. They represent the challenges all people are facing every day. They also represent those people who will do everything just to let you down. Competition is very usual in every field of life but everyone can be Rancho. We should just have a concrete vision enclosed with competency and a strong desire of reaching every goal you have set. “Make your passion your profession” is one the quote from the movie that really marked on my mind. You can’t accomplish...
