Profile of Albert Fish
Albert Fish is best known for being a sadistic child rapist and murder. His reign of terror started in the early around 1919 and didn’t end until his death by lethal injection in 1936. His crimes came in an era when people tended to trust their neighbors and were less suspicious, his crimes opened the eyes of many.
Fish was born in 1870 to an elderly father 75 years of age and to a mother that was 43 years younger than the father, who also had a history of mental illness. Fish’s family history was plagued with many relatives that had a history of mental illness and he too later in life had auditory hallucinations. His mother placed him in a orphanage where he was treated roughly and began to enjoy the pain brought upon him.
Later he began a relationship in his early teens with a boy who introduced him to eating feces and drinking urine. From there he slowly escalated into watching boys undress in showers and writing obscene letters to women. With escalation he claimed to become a male prostitute and he grew more interested in castration and soon after he attempted castration on a mentally retarded lover. He started to rape young boys and continued to do so even after he was married in 1898.
His wife soon left him for another man and forced him to be an single parent of six children. Around this time he started to inflect self-pain by inserting needles in his pelvic region. The pressures of his failed marriage and single parenthood escalated his rapes and mutilations into murder. He claimed that he stabbed a mentally retarded boy in 1919. He started murdering often; while his exact number is unknown he targeted mentally retarded individuals because he assumed that they would not be missed.
In 1928 he had placed an ad in the paper looking for a farm hand under a false name. He had planned on murdering the boy who answered it, but when he…...

...Homework: Little Albert. 1. Did the results of Watson and Rayner's experiment support their hypothesis? - Yes, it did. The hypothesis was that most human behaviours and emotional reactions are built up on conditioned response. The result from the conditioning Watson and Rayner subject Albert to proves this hypothesis because Albert responded to the unconditioned stimulus which was brought around by the unconditioned response that is also known as fear. After combining these specific factors, the rat became the conditioned stimulus and that elicited a conditioned response from Albert. A conditioned response in this case, is fear. 2. How did Albert's response become generalised? - Albert’s response became generalised after he was subjected to ‘conditioning’ by Watson and Rayner when he was eleven years old. They instill the fear of rats within Albert and not soon after, they present him with the same toys back when he was nine years old. Albert was afraid of the toys that look even remotely furry such as a dog, a rabbit and a Santa Claus mask. However, Albert was not afraid of the blocks that were presented to him and from there, both Watson and Rayner have concluded that Albert is afraid of furry objects and therefore they have generalised his fear based upon the results of their experiment that was conducted on him. 3. How were the principles of classical conditioning used to reduce Peter's fear of rabbits? - The principles of classical conditioning were used to......

Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. Later, they moved to Italy and Albert continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and in 1896 he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics. In 1901, the year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching post, he accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office. In 1905 he obtained his doctor's degree. During his stay at the Patent Office, and in his spare time, he produced much of his remarkable work and in 1908 he was appointed Privatdozent in Berne.

...A Reflection Paper on the Article : Little Emotional Albert In the history of psychology, we can see how the tsunami-like waves of Freud’s Psychoanalytic theory engulfed most of the study of human behavior and mental processes in mid 1900’s. such breakthrough provided convincing explanations about he dimension of man in accordance to the discipline of psychology. Freudians’ conception that we are governed by our unconscious desires and repressed emotions prove to be cunning enough to leave the rest of the world agrees to their claim. Freud’s brainchild stood up like invincible walls – until an attempt to shake and bang the wall down took place. Although we can say that the wall was not completely toppled down, we cannot deny the fact that it left huge cracks and holes to it, paving the way for another dogma to emerge. With an agitate esprit to counter Freud’s theory, Watson and his colleagues delivered the birth of Behaviorism. Banking on the idea that behavior is generated outside the person through various environmental or situational stimuli, Watson was eager to provide justice to his point. Through his works, he figured that the environment played a very significant role in shaping one’s behavior. Watson and company espoused on the idea that emotional responses exists in us because we have been conditioned to respond emotionally to a certain stimuli in the environment. Therefore, emotional responses and all other human behavior are learned through conditioning...

The Fish

...bring surprises with it. “The Fish” is a poem written by Elizabeth Bishop about her own story when she catches a huge fish while she is in a rented boat. After she catches the fish, she holds it up half out of the water. The fish looks pretty ugly, tired, and old with “shapes like full-blown roses, stained and lost through age” (lines 14-15). Algae is growing on it, and she realizes that the fish has five fishing hooks with the lines still partially attached hanging from its jaw. The speaker start to think how tough this fish must be and how much the fish probably fought through his life to survive. She begins to respect the fish. The story takes a final turn when she lets the fish go. The Theme of the poem is that great lessons can be learned from simple situations in life like a normal day fishing in the ocean. At first the speaker says “I caught a tremendous fish” (1). That is a simple description, then the speaker gives some detail about the fish and how it looks “his brown skin hung like strips like ancient wall-paper”. At this point, the fish is nothing special. After that, the speaker begins to examine the fish more closely, and she imagines the inside of the fish “dramatic reds and blacks,”(30) and a “pink swim-bladder.”(32) The fact that she is using her imagination in connection with the fish implied that the fish has a meaning behind simply being caught. The narrator learned from the persistence and dedication that the fish has. The fish has been caught five time......

Fish Cheeks

...14 September 2013 Amy Tan's “Fish Cheeks” In the story, “Fish Cheeks,” Amy Tan describes a young girl and the anxiety that she was experiencing when she learns that her crush, Robert, was coming to dinner with his family. Amy's family was Chinese and their customs were different for Christmas compared to Robert's American customs. She was afraid of what Robert and his family would think. These feelings are expressed in the second paragraph, “When I found out that my parents had invited the minister's family over for Christmas Eve dinner, I cried.” At first, Amy is shamed of her family and their customs and traditions. Amy's mother had prepared a large meal of Amy's favorite foods, that was traditional for a Chinese Christmas. However, at the time she thought it was “strange.” She knew that Robert's family was not accustomed to this kind of meal, and she was also embarrassed by her own family's manners. By the time both families were finished eating, Amy mentioned that she “was stunned into silence for the rest of the night,” in paragraph 7. Her embarrassment was evident throughout the night. After the meal and the Robert's family left, Amy's mother wanted her to realize that she didn't need to be ashamed of her Chinese heritage, but also understood that Amy wanted to be like the American girls. Her mother gave her a special gift that night as well, to try to show her understanding. Amy's mother reiterated to her daughter that she should be proud of her......

...enim ad minim veniam. Company Name Company Name Is your seafood safe to eat? Is your seafood safe to eat? Tel: 555 555 0125 Tel: 555 555 0125 Why is our seafood contaminated? Contaminants end up in water in a variety of ways: * Industrial and municipal discharges, agricultural practices, and storm water runoff can all deposit harmful substances directly into the water. * Rain can wash chemicals from the land or air into streams and rivers. These contaminants are then carried downstream into lakes, reservoirs and estuaries. * Mercury, for example, is naturally converted by bacteria into methylmercury. Fish absorb methylmercury mostly from their food, but also from the water as it passes over their gills. Generally, larger and older fish have had more time to accumulate mercury from their food and the water than smaller and younger fish.  What are the health risks? * Large amounts of mercury may harm the nervous system. * Young children, developing fetuses and breast-fed babies are at most risk, because small amounts of mercury can damage a brain that is just starting to form or grow. Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.  *  The first symptoms of adult mercury poisoning include incoordination and burning or tingling sensation in the fingers and toes. As mercury levels increase, your ability to walk, talk, see, and hear may all be affected in subtle ways. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,......

...FISH! Fish! The book, helped me see my life and work in a new way. Fish! Is a fictional story, but it is based on that real fish market - the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington. It can teach lessons that I think we all need to be reminded of periodically. Fish! Tackles one of the challenges of leadership - how to transform a poorly performing team and business to make the workplace more playful and productive. The main character is Mary Jane, a manager at a financial group. The story is about her effort to introduce a playfully productive atmosphere into a group, to which she has just been promoted. After speaking to a fishmonger and observing his employees, she gets some great tips to help motivate her team. Things I’ve learned from reading this book: I can choose my attitude. Whenever I’m working on a task that may not be my favorite, which would be a perm for me. I could choose to be bored or maybe rush through this service or I could put a smile on my face and give that client the best perm she ever had. A great attitude makes me more money and the client will surely refer her friends to me. Playing needs to be included daily life. Lively music playing in the background boosts positive energy. I introduced monthly sales contents that included prizes. Shop parties and girls’ night out always a big hit. Out of town trips to hair shows were great for team building. Happy people treat others well. I know there’s a difference......

Albert Einstein

...It is very difficult to earn the title “genius”, but one person that earns this distinction in everybody’s perspective is Albert Einstein. This genius was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879 and died in Princeton, New Jersey on April 17, 1955. Einstein’s theories were groundbreaking and challenged many existing theories and assumptions at that time. His theories like relativity and photo-electricity made way to many inventions later. Einstein was one of the greatest innovators. He changed the world of physics with his easy-to-learn theories. Einstein once said “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”. When he first published his Theory of relativity, Einstein was just a Patent Clerk in Switzerland and not a physicist or research scholar, like he wanted to be. This was how this genius made his entrance as an innovator. One of the most important events in Einstein’s life is his work on relativity. The relativity theory is about how speed of light affects time. Time is relative and can move slow or fast depending on the speed of light the matter moves. Another important event is Einstein’s contribution to the World War II. Einstein sent a letter to Franklin Roosevelt, recommending that the United States make the atomic bomb before Germany did. His theory of E=mc2 provided the basis for this invention that changed the outcome of World War II. He later regretted writing the recommendation......

Albert Einstein

...Albert Einstein Albert Einstein had little resistance attending school. Some say that Einstein had dyslexia. Einstein showed language impairments at a very young age. His family believed he may be slow because of the abnormal period of time before he began to talk. Between the ages of two and three Einstein began to speak whole sentences. According to most researchers they believed that Einstein was withdrawn from the world as a boy. When Einstein started school he did surprisingly well. At the age of 16 Einstein failed the college exam the first time plainly because he did not study and later learned that it’s a bad choice to not prepare for a test. Einstein is a clear example of a person who is listed with learning disabilities in today's schools. If you have the right approach to education than labels can’t stop you from making great accomplishments, which is proven by Einstein and others like Thomas Edison, Leonardo de Vinci, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Winston Churchill, and Walt Disney. Einstein made many contributions to mathematics. The first is the Special Theory of Relativity, which essentially deals with the question of whether rest and motion are relative or absolute, and with the consequences of Einstein’s conjecture that they are relative. The second is the General Theory of Relativity, which primarily applies to particles as they accelerate, particularly due to gravitation, and acts as a radical revision of Newton’s theory, predicting important......

Albert Einstein

...with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein was a German-born physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, among other feats. He is considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century. Born in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany in 1879, Albert Einstein had a passion for inquiry that eventually led him to develop the special and general theories of relativity. In 1921, he won the Nobel Prize for physics for his explanation of the photoelectric effect and immigrated to the U.S. in the following decade after being targeted by the Nazis. Einstein is generally considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century, with his work also having a major impact on the development of atomic energy. With a focus on unified field theory during his later years, Einstein died on April 18, 1955, in Princeton, New Jersey. Einstein attended elementary school at the Luitpold Gymnasium in Munich. However, he felt alienated there and struggled with the institution's rigid pedagogical style. He also had what were considered to be speech challenges, though he developed a passion for classical music and playing the violin that would stay with him into his later years. Most significantly, Einstein's youth was marked by deep inquisitiveness and inquiry.  Towards the end of the 1880s, Max Talmud, a Polish medical student who sometimes dined with the Einstein family, became an informal tutor to young Albert. Talmud had introduced his pupil to a children’s......

Albert Fish Analysis

...Analysis: Albert Fish’s actions can be analyzed from an anthropological, sociological and psychological perspective in order to further understand what led him to such outcomes. First he will be analyzed from an anthropological perspective, which looks at the overriding culture and other factors that resulted in his actions. Early in his childhood, Fish was introduced to violence which led to his sadistic realizations (Brisbon, H. 2007). The culture between 1870 and 1936 in which he lives was a very violent time in America with a lot of violent crimes related to racism and homophobia, making following in those footsteps a very easy option for a person like Albert Fish. Due to the violent historical occurrences, Fish felt as though he was dominant over African American, handicapped and homosexual people, which led him to exploit them as his primary targets (Brisbon, H. 2007). This shows that the culture and society he was brought up in caused Fish to abide dominance against other humans and displayed violence as an easy outlet for that hate which led to the many gruesome assaults and murders he proceeded with throughout his lifetime (Brisbon, H. 2007). The anthropological circumstances contribute to Albert Fish seeing the world through a lens of arrogant entitlement and treating people as targets. Albert fish could also be understood through the lens of sociology. Sociology looks at how members of society interact with one another. To the public, Albert fish was a gentle......
