How Vulnerable Are You to Mass Hysteria? We often think of ourselves as being too logical of level-headed to be turned around by some bizarre social reality. We never bought a hoola hoop. We know Elvis is truly dead. We all are vulnerable to some extent and we all have our Achilles’ heels. If you understand how these phenomena of heard psychology work, you’ll be better prepared to deal with them. And, as an options trader, you must be able to see reality for what it is in order to profitably tr

Moreover, this book stresses the immortal fact that Jackson’s private life had as much irony and agony as his political/outside life did. With those factors understood, Jackson’s life and t

The soaring volume of international finance and increased interdependence in recent decades has increased concerns about volatility and threats of a financial crisis. This has led many to investigate and analyze the origins, transmission, effects and policies aimed to impede financial instability.

Industrial Revolution Industrial Revolution, term which gained currency during the mid-19th century and became widely used by the 1880s. It has traditionally been used to describe dramatic transformations occurring in manufacturing industry between approximately 1750 and 1850 that set the pattern for industrialization. The first Industrial Revolution occurred in Great Britain, and profoundly altered its economy and society. The most immediate changes were in production: what was produced, as wel
Asian Crisis The crisis began in Thailand in July 1997 and spread to Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia, then to Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. Financial systems in Thailand, Korea and Japan all came under intense strain, but nowhere as destructively as in Indonesia, which by early 1998 had become the worst-affected victim. The 1997 Asian financial meltdown began in Thailand on July 2 after the collapse in late June of 16 finance companies alerted investors to the strains on the financial sys
The Great Depression was the worst economic slump ever in U.S. history, and one which spread to virtually all of the industrialized world. The depression began in late 1929 and lasted for about a decade. Many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; however, the main cause for the Great Depression was the combination of the greatly unequal distribution of wealth throughout the 1920's, and the extensive stock market speculation that took place during the latter part that same decad

The legacy of Dr. William Edwards Deming Based on Deming Management Method by Walton In recent years, America has seen a rapid increase in the prices of stocks and other securities. At the same time most American industries have been on the decline in terms of production. How is this possible? Bad management. Top level managers are more and more isolated from their companies. They do not understand the dynamics of their businesses and thus rely strictly on paper profits, not thinking about the l
: INTRODUCTION The genre of science fiction is often looked down upon as the refuge of acne-scarred teenagers or for those not capable of dealing with the real world. Granted, a large amount of science fiction is geared towards these people. But there is a greater amount of science fiction that is serious literature. It would be more proper to call this type of writing speculative fiction. Speculative fiction, as such, is an exploration of the potential of mankind and the horrors or glories that
A Realist's Look at Our Nation's Founding To say that the Founding Fathers ...were impelled by class motives... is a statement that is purely speculative. To say that we know what motivated these men to write the Constitution is totally false. We do not know whether their reasons for drafting the document were personal, moral or political. All we do know is that, through their actions, the most influential document of our country's history was created. The politics of the Constitutional Conven
Computer Science Study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers—devices that automatically process information. Computer science traces its roots to work done by English mathematician Charles Babbage, who first proposed a programmable mechanical calculator in 1837. Until the advent of electronic digital computers in the 1940s, computer science was not generally distinguished as being separate from mathematics and engineering. Since
Galileo Galileo was born near Pisa, on February 15, 1564. His father, Vincenzo Galilei, played an important role in the musical revolution from medieval polyphony to harmonic modulation. Galileo was taught by monks at Vallombrosa and then entered the University of Pisa in 1581 to study medicine. He soon turned to philosophy and mathematics, leaving the university without a degree in 1585. For a time, he tutored privately and wrote on hydrostatics and natural motions, but he did not publish them

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born at eight o'clock in the morning in Oak Park, Illinois July 21, 1899. In the nearly sixty two years of his life that followed he forged a literary reputation unsurpassed in the twentieth century and created a mythological hero in himself that captivated and confounded not only serious literary critics but also the average man...in a word, he was a star. Born in the family home at 439 Oak Park Avenue, a house built by his widowed grandfather Ernest Hall, Hemingway
DID YOU EVER COMMIT ADULTERY? In a recent exchange on Crossfire, Michael Kinsley of Slate magazine asked Randy Tate of the Christian Coalition whether he thought it right that every candidate for political office should be asked the question, Have you ever been guilty of adultery? Kinsley is a skilled polemicist and he knew that he-that his side-had nothing to lose by asking the question. If Tate said Yes, Kinsley could have gone on in an ad absurdum direction. (When should these questions be

DO YOU BELIEVE IN ALIENS? There is a farming town on the outskirts of the New Mexico desert that is famous for its' crazy tourists.

July 1, 1997, a significant date for all people in Hong Kong and much of the Asian community. Hong Kong will be reverted to a powerful communist nation. Ironically, many of the world's communist countries are reverting to democratic governments. What will this date mean for, not only Southeast Asia, but for the rest of the world economic community, primarily the United States? Will Hong Kong still function, economically, as it does now or will power from People's Republic of China (China) quick
Gaia and Plate Tectonics Geologists and biologists have traditionally thought of life as having adapted to changes in the environmental conditions over time, but a new view of the earth derived from the Gaia theory has emerged. Many scientists now look at the entire earth as an organism, where living and nonliving matter evolve together maintaining an environment nearly ideal for life. The Gaia theory maintains that soon after the formation of life, and organisms began to change the environment,
Archaeopteryx and Modern Birds As promised, here are the derived characters with which Gauthier (in his 1986 paper) unites Archaeopteryx with modern birds, outside of all other theropods (with Gauthier's original clarifiers in parens) [and with my editorial comments in brackets]: Premaxillae elongate, narrow, and more pointed anteriorly, with longer nasal processes [similar condition in bullatosaurs, and in the nondinosaurian Megalancosaurus, but unique to Archie and later birds in Maniraptora].
Service Mechanism and Process Service Characteristics 1. Service Mechanism or Process: For each category of customer it is necessary to describe the service process. This is usually expressed as a probability distribution for service times; for example, service times might be normally distributed or uniformly distributed. At the least, we need to state the average time it takes for a server to serve a customer and the variance or standard deviation of the service time. We decline m = average ser
Same-Sex Marriage You Yu Yeh 4-16-99 English 1B Professor Runyan Essay#2 ¡§Marriage is a coming together for better or for worse, hopefully enduring, and intimate to the degree of being sacred.

Decision To Fund The Atomic Bomb No man-made phenomenon of such tremendous power had ever occurred before. The lighting effects beggared description. The whole country was lighted by a searing light with the intensity many times greater than that of the midday sun. It was golden, purple, violet, gray, and blue... ( Groueff 355). The words of Brigadier General Thomas F. Farrell describe the onset of the atomic age, which began on July 16, 1945 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. This was the site of the f
Ernest Hemmingway At the time of Hemingway's graduation from High School,World War I was raging in Europe and despite Woodrow Wilson's attempts to keep America out of the war, the United States joined the Allies in the fight against Germany and Austria in April, 1917. When Hemingway turned eighteen he tried to enlist in the army, but was deferred because of poor vision; he had a bad left eye that he probably inherited from his mother ,who also had poor vision. When he heard the Red Cross was tak
Euthanisia In recent years, Euthanasia has become a very heated debate. It is a Greek word that means easy death but the controversy surrounding it is just the opposite. Whether the issue is refusing prolonged life mechanically, assisting suicide, or active euthanasia, we eventually confront our socity's fears toward death itself. Above others, our culture breeds fear and dread of aging and dying. It is not easy for most of the western world to see death as an inevitable part of life. However, t
Great Depression The Great Depression was the worst economic decline ever in U.S. history. It began in late 1929 and lasted about a decade. Throughout the 1920’s, many factors played a role in bringing about the depression; the main causes were the unequal distribution of wealth and extensive stock market speculation. Money was distributed unequally between the rich and the middle-class, between industry and agriculture within the United States, and between the U.S. and Europe. This disproport
Pacific Explorers Andrew Sharp claims in his Ancient Voyagers in the Pacific published in 1956 that the Pacific Islanders did not possess the necessary navigational and sailing technology to deliberately navigate the distances between islands of the Pacific when colonizing these islands. He claims colonization was random and accidental. However, more recent studies from 1972 on of Pacific navigation suggest deliberate navigation and colonization was possible and did take place. These studies hav
Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt, (1882-1945), 32nd of the United States. Roosevelt became president in March 1933 at the depth of the Great Depression, was reelected for an unprecedented three more terms, and died in office in April 1945, less than a month before the surrender of Germany in World War II. Despite an attack of poliomyelitis, which paralyzed his legs in 1921, he was a charismatic optimist whose confidence helped sustain the American people during the strains of economic crisis

Against the Gods Through all the years of stocks, people never thought of defining risk with numbers. It was never about a definition, but about the feeling in your gut when you see that your risk was rising. In the world of Stocks there are two types of people; the ones who stand by risk and the ones who lean on security. The aggressive and the faint-hearted. The young man, who separated these, weak from strong, wrote an article in June 1952, to the Journal of Finance. This man, Harry Markowitz
A Tour of the Pentium Pro Processor Microarchitecture Introduction One of the Pentium Pro processor's primary goals was to significantly exceed the performance of the 100MHz Pentium processor while being manufactured on the same semiconductor process. Using the same process as a volume production processor practically assured that the Pentium Pro processor would be manufacturable, but it meant that Intel had to focus on an improved microarchitecture for ALL of the performance gains. This guided
Carnivorous Plants In a world where plants are at the bottom of the food-chain, some individual plant species have evolved ways to reverse the order we expect to find in nature. These insectivorous plants, as they are sometimes called, are the predators , rather than the passive prey. Adaptions such as odiferous lures and trapping mechanisms have made it possible for these photosynthesizers to capture, chemically break-down and digest insect prey (and in some cases even small animals.) There is
Theravadan Buddhism Theravadan Buddhism Throughout history there have been numerous religions and theologies that men and women have entrusted their lives and ways of living to. One of the most intriguing is that of Buddhism. The great Buddha referred to his way as the middle way, and he, as the Enlightened One began the teachings of the religion with his first five Ascetics who he shows his middle way. This great occasion is the start to what will be known as Theravadan Buddhism. Although Thera
