...medical help arrived. I do not prescribe or hold the notion of altruism as a value in any way, shape or form. In fact, it is a vice. Altruism is the ethical doctrine that says a man does not have a right to exist for his own sake, that serving or helping others is the only justification of their existence. Our lecture presentation said, “We have a moral duty to help others without reward,” which amounts to a regurgitation of Immanuel Kant. In deference to Kant, the term “moral duty” is a contradiction in terms. It amounts to saying I am a “married bachelor,” which is a logical impossibility. The same logical impossibility applies to the concept of a moral duty. For any human action to be moral, it must be chosen. Not chosen by some spook in the sky and action commanded or even by an anal retentive 18th Century school teacher. When the gods of the machine create a robot, it is programmed to do a certain and specific task and can only do what it is programmed to do, it has no choice in its actions, i.e., it possesses no ability to deviate from its program, i.e., it is amoral by definition. It has no choice in what actions it takes. Humans, however, possess the faculty of volition, the ability to make choices. A duty or obligation or commandment is unchosen to the moral agent. It is something that compelled upon someone to do or act. Therefore, a moral duty is, in fact, a contradiction in terms. Any action undertaken by humans entails a choice, either by the person......

Autheur Theory

...emotional dialogue exchanges. The movies are more about dramatic scenes, not action scenes. This allows Shyamalan to explore character dynamics over plot dynamics, but at the same time, he is still able to keep the audience involved. When it comes to the supernatural ghosts and monsters, people are used to seeing action-packed scenes, all up-in-your-face experiences. Shyamalan goes a different way. He slowly builds up audiences’ anticipation, and then he reveals the truth. Like the way Cole reveals his secret in the hospital bed in The Sixth Sense; the way David accepts his powers in Unbreakable; the way the secret of Covington woods and its monster reveals. Audiences did not get the sensation of being scared out of their seat by the sudden spooks, nevertheless, they got the fulfillment of anticipation, of rambling through their head to search for the possible answer; the possible outcome, of the finally knowing the unknown. What can be better than the intellectual involvement? Another principle in Shyamalan’s films is the twist of the identity of the protagonist or he changes the story focus to another character. With The Sixth Sense, we watch a ghost story for nearly the entire film and are shocked to discover the hero is also a ghost. In Unbreakable, we watch a superhero origin story only to find out it is actually a story about a villain. In The Village, Shyamalan shifts the focus from Lucius to Ivy. By fatally injuring Lucius, Shyamalan changes the story plot. A......

...8 Ways To Prevent Financial Snooping Edward Snowden made waves internationally with his revelations about the electronic snooping the U.S. government does into personal communications. But government spooks aren’t the only people who may be trying to peer over your shoulder digitally. The growth of electronic banking has spurred growth in the number and sophistication of criminals using computers to pry into the private accounts of people and businesses. Getting taken by one of these criminals may not be as traumatic as an on-street mugging, but it can be every bit as costly. Here are some things you can do to protect your accounts from criminal snooping: 1. Cover the keypad. Behind you at the ATM or in line at the supermarket checkout, there may be someone waiting to casually observe your PIN for future use. Don’t even bother looking behind you — whatever the situation, get in the habit of using your free hand to screen the keypad as you type in your PIN. 2. Take a good look at that gas pump. Thieves are increasingly using credit card skimmers — devices that look like card readers, but that secretly transmit your credit card information to their operators. If the card reader at a gas pump seems loose-fitting, sticks out more than usual, or doesn’t quite match the surrounding equipment, notify a station employee — and don’t insert your card! 3. Don’t use public networks to view sensitive financial information. Online savings accounts and checking accounts may be......

Ethical Dilemma Cash Sales

...beneficial to all of the team. There is some sense of obligation to give the benefit of the doubt to those that you have a positive relationship with. Just as I would hope that if someone was suspicious or unsure what I was doing they would ask me first before assuming I was doing something wrong or unethical. This would be especially true for those that I have an established relationship with. I do have an obligation to my employer to let them know what I suspect but I wouldn’t point fingers at anyone specifically as it’s only a suspicion and there could very well be someone else doing it or more than one person. To be fair, they should look at everyone and not just focus on one person. If only one person is looked at, the employer might spook others or the real thief. When the stealing stops it could be for that reason and not that they identified the thief by blaming Nathan. The primary risk in not saying anything is that the employer could find on their own that Nathan is not recording all the cash sales and, knowing that the team splits the tips evenly, feel that all have stolen from them. Everyone could lose their job and possibly face prosecution for theft. I think most people would answer that they would tell the employer of their suspicions and allow them to take it from there. In reality I think more people would confront Nathan and tell him their suspicions first. Depending on how that interaction goes would dictate what happens next. If Nathan admits he is......

Horsing Back Ridng

...of the horse, you have to hold the reins in your left hand and hold the saddle with your right hand. Some people are to short to mount the horse by themselves so they use a riding block. Then you have to put your left foot in the stirrup first then you have to pull your body up in the saddle, then put your right foot in the other stirrup. Next you have to use the reins to navigate the horse in the direction that you want it to go. To stop the horse you have to pull on the reins and say “whoa”. To make a horse walk you have to squeeze your legs and say “walk”. While riding you always have to be carful of tree branches and other things that could hurt you or the horse. Also you have to talk in a low voice because if you are loud you will spook the horse which will make the horse start to go faster and knock you off.

Then you gently swing your right foot over to the left side then dismount the horse without scaring it. Then after you have go back and untack the horse.

Mythology

...mythological themes, the differences between mythology, religion, and belief, and whether or not I believe if mythology is relevant. The word myth is used popularly to explain or tell a story or legend that is not fully truthful. Portions of the story maybe true but other portions of the story are exaggerated or told in a way that the person understands. Tall tales, fairytales, or urban legends are examples of myths that help explain things to people or children especially in a way they can understand. The statement, “It’s a myth” means that the story is not true, there is little truth in the story, or an explanation of the unknown. For example, as a child many of us are told about the boogey man. He is a mythological creature created to spook or scare children into behaving or to stay away from dangerous places. The boogey man is a common mythological theme told across different cultures. Each culture has a name for the boogey man, such as the Chupacabra, the Lady in Black, Bloody Mary, the Man under the bed, or the most common of all the Devil. The myth of an allege boogey man was created to scare children or bring fear of the unknown. The myth of the boogey man explains to children that there are bad people or places in the world and to be cautious. Another common mythology theme is the existence of a higher power or being who created earth, the universe, and all things in it. Each culture has a religion and they are used to explain how things started or became of. If......

...The Japanese economy unexpectedly shrank last quarter as a hike in the sales tax in Q2 continued to weigh on economic activity. As we have stated on numerous occasions, the lack of activity at the ground level in Japan and the failure of a weakening yen to significantly boost exports is killing economic activity. The yen initially weakened on the back of Japan’s all-important GDP figures as the Nikkei rallied, before Japanese equities began to fall and the yen reversed its course. The numbers were so bad as to spook the market sufficiently to result in the aforementioned sell-off in equities. GDP fell a seasonally adjusted 0.5% q/q and an annualised 1.6% q/q in Q3, missing expected increases of 0.5% and 2.2% respectively. The numbers show that the hike of the VAT in April is having a far more detrimental impact on the economy that initially expected, thus it should be enough evidence to persuade Tokyo to delay increasing the sales tax for a second time. Last week we postulated that Prime Minister Abe may officially push back an expected hike in the VAT by 18 months if today’s data was significantly worse than expected. This was supported by rumours from the Japanese media and some cryptic comments from law makers. After today’s very disappointing numbers, we are almost certain that Abe will announce in the coming days that the planned October increase in the VAT will be postponed by at least six months. The market reaction The initial sell-off in the yen is a likely......

...Germans. As the Germans peeked over the berm York would shoot them, sniper style. York wrote in his diary: "There were over 30 of them in continuous action and all I could do was touch the Germans off as fast as I could. I was sharpshooting. I don't think I missed a shot. It was no time to miss." (York, Alvin C., Jr) Suddenly six German soldiers, including a lieutenant, jumped from the trench and charged at York. York calmly shot each officer with his pistol. He shot them from rear to front so that the ones in the front would not see others fall and retreat. York explained in his autobiography that as a boy he had learned when hunting geese in flight to shoot the birds in the rear first and work your way to the front, so that the others don’t spook and scatter. (Padgett) The Germans surrendered and York and his remaining men walked 132 German prisoners back to the American camp. York was given the highest of honors, not only from the US but from France and Italy as well, for his heroics during the battle. York was awarded The Medal of Honor, as well as the French Croix de Guerre, the Italian Croce de Guera, and the American Distinguished Service Cross. He was also promoted to the rank of Sergeant. (York, Alvin C., Jr) The Commander of the American Expeditionary Forces, General John J. (Blackjack) Pershing called York, "The greatest civilian soldier of the war." (Padgett)...

...state security. Who is the information, intelligence or the analysis of knowledge provided to? It goes to the government of the day, and it’s usually gathered, and given, in secret. To quote from the American secret service, the CIA or Central Intelligence Agency: "We are the eyes and ears of the nation and at times its hidden hand." Britain's security service, MI5, says it exists to protect national security, using techniques such as surveillance, or following people, and listening to their conversations. We most often hear about the activities of intelligence agencies when things go wrong, or their work crosses into the political arena. You'll hear talk of intelligence agents, secret service people, spies, or, very informally, spooks. You'll also hear intelligence used in other news stories, stories about human intelligence, or how clever we are; whether there's intelligent life on other planets, another reference to the ability of the brain; and artificial intelligence, which refers to the problem-solving abilities of computers. Now, I wonder if they know how to keep a secret. News Words bbclearningenglish.com © British Broadcasting Corporation 2010 Page 1 of 1 ...

...are 1.9 times more probable and guilty parties is 1.5 times to have endeavored suicide than the individuals who were not cyberbullied but rather youth suicide isn't prone to happen with just encountering cyberbullying itself. Maybe, it tends to expand awkwardness and misery in the psyches of youths officially battling with upsetting life circumstances. A 2006 episode in which a guardian in Missouri made a false Myspace profile to spook her little girl's schoolmate has turned out to be especially famous while talking about the connection in the middle of cyberbullying and high schooler suicide. Megan Meier, age 13, got Fernandez 3 coy messages through her Myspace account from a kid named Josh.

Learning Experience Paper

...click. Some people learn this way also. (Spielman, Dumpter, Jenkins, Lacombe, & Lovett, 2014). Operant Conditioning Operant Conditioning is when a person learns to associate a behavior and its consequence. This type of learning can consist of a reward/punishment method. This is the most preferred method for people to learn today. This method is the easiest to teach children. They respond to learning by reward/punishment better than other methods. They do something good you give them a reward; They do something bad then you punish them (Spielman et al., 2014). My experience could have been learned this way by sitting still long enough then a deer would walk out and I would get the deer. If I was to move around then I would spook the deer and I would lose out on the kill with that being my punishment. My reward for sitting still would be getting a deer and my punishment if I did not sit still would be no deer (Shteingart, H., Neiman, T., & Loewenstein, Y. 2013). Cognitive-Social Learning Cognitive-Social learning focuses on the thought processes that underlie learning. This type of learning studies how someone would learn through different ways. This would be like putting a mouse in a maze with cheese at the end (Gumport, 2015). This would show how the mouse would learn to maneuver through the maze to get the food. This method would also be used with me in hunting. I could be put in the woods and learn as I go. This is a good way to learn how to......

The Greatest Day of Hunting

...deer. Then we turned around and headed toward the patch of woods where I was hunting. Thankfully we saw a lot of deer in the field beside the corn. As we drove back the lane we saw eyes in the spotlight. I gave the spotlight to my friend to hold it on the deer and a grabbed the spotting scope. I zoomed in and focused it on the deer. My jaw dropped as soon as I saw it. Its rack was huge. From what I could tell it had ten points and it was really thick with tall points. We got out of there quietly and quickly as to not to spook it for in the morning. I got all my stuff together and went to bed. I woke up in the morning, got ready as quickly as possible and headed out the door. When i got in my stand it was still pitch black out. As time went on you could see the sky getting lighter and the birds starting chirping. A little before i could shoot I saw a doe pass under my stand and sat still so it wouldn't spook and that way it wouldn't spook anything if it was following it. Only about ten minutes after the doe came through, I heard something walking towards me from the side of me. All of a sudden it caught my eye, it was that buck from the night before. It walked about twenty yards from my stand and turned its head. I stood up slowly and drew back. Its shoulder was back so I couldn't shoot yet. Then it took a step forward and I shot. I saw the buck jump and take off. I thought I had made a perfect shot, and then I saw my arrow in the ground. I just dropped......
