Skimming is speed reading Skimming or speed reading is a collection of reading methods which attempt to increase rates of reading without greatly reducing comprehension or retention. Methods include chucking and eliminating sub vocalization. No absolute distinct ??normal? and ??speed-reading ?? types of reading exist in practice, since all readers use some of the techniques used in speed reading(such as identifying words without focusing on each letter, not sounding out all words ,not sub-vocalizing some phrases, or spending less time on some phrases than others ,and skimming small sections). Speed reading is characterized by an analysis of trade ?off between measures of speed and comprehension, recognition that different types of reading call for different speed and comprehension rates, and that those may be improved with practice. Skimming is just pretending to read, because the objective is not so much to understand the text but to run the eyes over the text. Speed reading, scanning or skimming is based on the instant recognition of words and of the grammatical structure such as clauses, sentences and paragraphs into which they fit. Another type of skimming involves drawing words and word groups that stand out from each paragraph or page without any sense of structure or context. The immediate result is the construction of nonsense ?garbage sentences? that are unconsciously reconstructed into something more sensible to the ??reader??. While this gives the ??reader?? a high degree of confidence in understanding the material, the assumption made in reconstruction are untested and often incorrect. This leads to a high degree of false or synthetic memory of the next and a correspondingly high degree of error in comprehension. Speed reading is not a matter of disciplining eye movement but using natural eye movement as a guide to the degree of recognition the reader has of words clauses, and as to leaning the recognition of those words and clauses accordingly. T his is because proper reading techniques is the movement of the eye from one fixation to the next where there is no set length or size for each fixation because each fixation is comprises a recognized word group.

Mad in America...or Just Mad

...Mad in America…or just Mad. The healing hand is commonly known as a “mothers touch;” gentle, pure, healing. But what exactly is the healing hand? According to sources the healing hand is when “the practitioner alters the patient's energy field through an energy transfer that moves from the hands of the practitioner to the patient:” (Medicaldictionary.com) The healing hand of kindness is what Robert Whitaker entitles the second chapter of his book Mad in America. (Whitaker, 19) No, the healing hand is not the topic to my essay, but it is the first step in coming to terms with the why this chapter is just mad. When you combine two terms, both in relative meaning, it turns into a contradiction. The healing hand is kind. Kindness is a friendly act toward another. So where is the contradiction? The first section of the book describes accounts from a man names Benjamin Rush, from his book Medical Inquiries and Observations Upon the Diseases of the Mind. (Whitaker, 21-22) It describes patients being treated as animals: beaten, sedated, and verbally abused. (Whitaker, 22) This was the healing hand for many patients until 1793 when, as the book describes, was the lunacy reform in Europe. “Moral treatments,” and I use that phase sparingly, included, one pound of bread a day, extreme heat and cold weather in concrete cells, and sedation. Physician Philippe Pinel thought by talking to his sedated patients he was connecting with them, understanding their sorrows. He described this......

Mr.

...Reliance Commercial Corporation with a capital of Rs.15,000.00. The primary business of Reliance Commercial Corporation was to import polyester yarn and export spices. The business was setup in partnership with Champaklal Damani, his second cousin, who used to be with him in Aden, Yemen. The first office of the Reliance Commercial Corporation was set up at the Narsinatha Street in Masjid Bunder. It was 350 sq ft. room with a telephone, one table and three chairs. Initially, they had two assistants to help them with their business. In 1965, Champaklal Damani and Dhirubhai Ambani ended their partnership and Dhirubhai started on his own. It is believed that both had different temperaments and a different take on how to conduct business. While Mr. Damani was a cautious trader and did not believe in building yarn inventories, Dhirubhai was a known risk taker and he considered that building inventories, anticipating a price rise, and making profits.

Mad Cow Disease

...Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), better know as Mad cow disease is a relatively new disease. Most sources state that BSE first showed up in Great Britain in 1986 [Dealler p.5] but some say it popped up in 1985 [Greger p.1]. However the official notification was not until 21 June, 1988 [Dealler stats. p.1]. Spongiform encephalopathies are invariable fatal neurodegenerative diseases and there is no treatment nor is there a cure for this disease [Greger p.1]. The recent scare of BSE has arisen because of the contraction of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD: see Appendix B) in humans from eating beef products. Although there are many forms of Spongiform encephalopathies that affect a wide range of animals, BSE has received the most attention because many people in the world consume beef and people are that they might contract the disease from eating a burger at their favourite fast-food restaurant. In this essay I will discuss BSE and other forms of Spongiform encephalopathies, how it affects the ani mal, what causes the animals to contract the disease, and the recent issues of BSE in the world. I hope to set out the true facts about BSE and that it only affects a small percent of the world population. Due to the fact BSE is a new disease most of my information might be proven wrong in the future because there is a great deal of testing going on in the scientific community. They are also very concerned about this new disease and the effects it can have......

Mad Men 1

...Mad Men Season 1 Episode 1 has many scenes, which convey different themes in the show. One scene in particular depicts non-Jewish characters, discussing Jews. The scene, which takes place between Don Draper and Roger Sterling in Draper’s office, was one that really caught my attention. I was a bit annoyed by the conversation that took place between Draper and Sterling. Clearly these men are not Jewish, yet they are carrying on about Jews like it is some bad thing to be a Jew. “Have we ever hired any Jews?” -Sterling “Not on my watch.”- Draper “Sorry most of the Jewish guys work for the Jewish firms.”- Draper “I know, … make them feel more comfortable.”- Sterling “Want me to run down to the Deli and grab somebody?”- Draper The pieces of dialogue above are excerpts from their conversation. When Draper says, “Not on my watch,” it is clear that he is attaching a negative connotation to being Jewish. Then, he highlights a Jewish stereotype when he asks if he should, “run down to the deli and find one.” In this time period of the late 50’s and early 60’s Jews were not well liked, especially by wealthy Christian businessmen. There is a vivid attitude that is shown towards Jews throughout the entire series of Mad Men. The fact that the men don’t even know if they have any Jews working there is insulting. Later in the episode, Sterling gets a Jew from the mailroom to sit in on the client meeting to “make them feel more comfortable.” Overall, the negative connotation that...

Mad Cow

...What are Prions and their role? Prions are the proteins that cause Mad Cow Disease also known as BSE. Prions are an infectious protein. Prions are defined as an proteinaceous infectious particle, the protein is capable of changing the conformation of proteins to match its own and becomes infectious without the use of genetic materials. They can cross between species such as cattle, and sheep. Extreme heats chemical agents can inactivate the proteins. Prions are naturally occurring in the body and are not considered foreign nor do they stimulate the immune system and will not hurt your body, however the disease causing prions contact the normal prions by physical contact and alter the normal prions therefore causing the disease. With Mad Cow Disease The Prions target the specific protein in the cell that is normal called PrPC The role of protein Misfolding in BSE Diseased proteins result from improper folding and therefore the misfolded proteins induces copies of the same protein to also again misfold and increases the disease progress when it is misfolded. The scrapie prion PrPsc contacts and bumps into the normal cellular form PrPc intermediate and shifts the folding process converting them to the misfolded prion (the sheep version of mad cow disease called the PrPsc prion). The process continues over and over again. The body continues producing the normal cell PrPc and the scrapie prion PrPsc continues creating more replications of itself without needing any nucleic...

Mad World

...Sarah Bonkowski Brian Heaney ENG 1112 August 26, 2014 Mad World The song Mad World by Gary Jules is about existence. He realizes that there is no point in existence and that life is just very trivial. Gary Jules sees the world as worn out, dry, and wonders if its really worth it. Children are completely oblivious to the outside world. During the time when a child feels so excited about an event that an adult finds almost insignificant, they display true ignorance and obliviousness. The singer yearns to be a child and have such mentalities, but as he cannot, he sees no reason to exist. Lyrically the song is pretty loose. It throws together a lot of different images to paint a picture without saying anything specific about the world. He starts the song off with “All around me are familiar faces, Worn out places, worn out faces. Bright and early for their daily races, going nowhere, going nowhere. Their tears are filling up their glasses. No expression, no expression. Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow, no tomorrow, no tomorrow” (line 1-8). The familiar faces, worn out places, and worn out faces indicate that he has seen all their is to see, and that to him, all faces look the same, worn out and tired of life. If one considers the commute from home to work, at the end of the day its just the same cycle over again the next day. He continues to wonder where life is really going. When he sings bright and early for their daily races, going nowhere, he means the daily......

Hamlet Is Mad

...Hamlet is Mad In the play, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, there was quite a controversy to whether the main character, Hamlet, pretended to be mad or was indeed mad. Throughout the play, Hamlet put-on an act of madness to appear innocent, however, through Hamlets desire for revenge his illusion of madness became reality. This was shown through Hamlets change in character, his confession of madness, and his hallucination of the ghost of his father. Firstly, Hamlet’s pursuit for revenge drove him mad, which in turn changed his character. This was shown when Hamlet accidentally killed Polonius thinking that he was Claudius. Hamlet originally was an intelligent scholar, not a soldier who fought battles. Hamlet was not the type of person to commit murder and take someone’s life. Hamlet’s desire to attain revenge drove him mad with thoughts of murdering his culprit. Furthermore, after Hamlet killed Polonius he admitted to Laertes that it was madness that drove him to commit murder. In act 5, scene 2, Hamlet said to Laertes, “What I have done that your nature, honour, and exception roughly awake, I here proclaim was madness”. In Hamlet’s complete speech to Laertes, the tone was very serious. This showed that what Hamlet said was not another one of his acts of madness. Therefore, Hamlet himself admitted to his madness, which killed Polonius. Lastly, Hamlet’s hallucinations of the ghost of his father proved that Hamlet was mad. During the scene with Hamlet and Gertrude in her......

The Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet

...The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet The definition of a good marriage is the perception of the judge. When considering who is to blame for the Bennet's marriage, it must be said that it depends on which perspective is being considered. Jane Austen's portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's union leads us to believe this was not a match made in Heaven. However, if the marriage is looked at from different perspectives such as; Mr. Bennet’s, Mrs. Bennet’s, circumstance, or society’s, they provide opposing views of happiness and who is to blame in the absence of joy. After all are considered, is the marriage that bad? A person’s reasons to get married are essential in determining whether or not they can be happy. Society dictated that the Bennet's marriage was contractually imperative for both of them. Mrs. Bennet wanted to be secure and accepted a proposal that she thought would be acceptable. Mr. Bennet wanted a wife to take care of his needs and give him children, preferably a son. Both were tolerable to the other in the beginning and entered into the marriage with freewill. Early in the novel we learn the Bennet's marriage is portrayed as ill-fitted. They appear to be two opposites in humor, character, tact and priorities. In Chapter 1 we read: Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her......

Mad Men

...Mad Men, an American period drama has become a pop culture phenomenon. The critically acclaimed television series has been awarded numerous Emmys and Golden Globes for each of its five seasons but more significantly it has established a new craze for 1960s cocktail culture. Along with its influence on fashion and furniture design, the show reveals the perception of hard-drinking, chain-smoking advertising men of the early 1960s and their interaction with male chauvinism, adultery, homophobia, racism, sexual banter, and capitalism. Mad Men primarily receives two different types of pertinent criticism. A portion of the critics allot their reviews on the alternating moods and collective mores of a generation. The other half of the critics deliver acclamation for period-detailed set designs, historically accurate costume conception, nostalgic visual style, and authentic product placement. The series’ influence on contemporary culture can be seen all over the map. In 2008, Michael Kor’s clothing line made its debut on the cat walk of New York’s Fashion Week and consisted of slim suits, skinny ties, pencil skirts and pearls. The reviews thanked the characters, Don Draper and his on show office manager, Joan Halloway, for bringing these desired wardrobe trends to the closets of consumers (Stoddart, 2011). Marc Jacob’s Fall 2010 of “reconstructed femininity” was inspired by the series and emphasized Jacob’s line of corseted breasts, bare legs, bare arms, and womanly hips......

Mad Men

...Matthew LaMountain Evaluation of season 7, episode 8 of Mad Men The episode starts off with a dream sequence in which Don Draper and some other business cohorts appear to be choosing a model for a line of fur coats. After two models are passed by, Racheal Menken (a former lover and client of Don) comes into the room. Don is shocked to see her there as she was formerly the head of a major clothing store. I feel that Racheal’s appearance in Don’s dream was a sign that she was one of the few women that Don has slept with that actually meant something to him. Coincidentally enough, he’s having this dream while in bed with a woman he hardly knows. Later in the episode, Don is casually told by his secretary that Racheal had died of leukemia a week prior. Knowing not to get overemotional, Don stands silently while the secretary leaves the room to get him a sandwich. In another scene, Don and Roger Sterling are sitting in a diner, surrounded by women. Don thinks he recognizes his waitress, but can’t recall where he’s met her. Roger pays the tab with a 100 dollar bill, which the waitress (who is a sex worker on the side) sees it as a payment from Don for a future “meeting”. Surely enough, Don comes into the diner a few days later and tries to talk to the waitress, asking again where he knows her. The waitress does not know him besides them meeting a few days prior. She takes a break and leaves through the back door, hinting at Don to follow. They proceed to have sex in the alley......

Griffin and Frankenstein Are Mad

...Both Griffin of Invisible Man and Victor of Frankenstein are what we might classify as mad scientists. They have a need to create something never before done, against the persecution of the unbelieving science community. Although they differ in what they create, they both become successful in their quest towards a larger understanding of the scientific unknown. But the two end their tales in different states of mind, to which one might derive a certain sense of judgment in each. Of the two mad scientists one would most likely point towards Griffin as the less likable. His breakthrough was not to benefit the world or for the scientific community; it was simply for his personal gain. One might argue the same against Victor but he had very little gain from his creation His was rather to prove a human could create life from an unanimated body, in which he was going to show to the rest of the world. Griffin does not share his secret with anyone, he even has a coded journal where he keeps his formulas and notes. Victor does not share his secret either but he believes his creation is a menace and a monster and therefore should never be repeated. Griffin is a static character; he never changes throughout his tale, nor does he learn his lesson. He is greedy, selfish, uncaring and arrogant. He steals money from his father which becomes the cause of his death and never sheds a tear. He creates the invisibility potion for personal gain and even after creating it he says “all this isn’t...

Is It Better Tobe Mad or Bad

...IS IT BETTER TO BE MAD OR BAD.1 This essay will discuss normal and abnormal behaviour and how the definition of psychologists differentiates although defining normal and abnormal behaviour can be problematic because there is no single definition. It will also look at the current treatment of mental health and how to tackle these issues in the future. There are many ways that normal and abnormal behaviour can be defined for instant one concept is based on statistical for example something which is unusual to the society. Statistically: In this definition of abnormality behaviors which are seen as statistically rare are considered to be abnormal. In terms of statistics, abnormal behaviour involves any behaviour that is significantly different from the norm. for instance some one who is very clever is considered normal in terms of cleverness average on the other hand if some one is less or below the average he or she is considered abnormal.
