Color Psychology Paper
Research Question:
How does color affect one’s mood?
Review of Literature:
Colors may just seem simple and unimportant, but they affect our daily lives more than we may know. If someone is feeling angry, it could just be because they’re angry, or it could be perhaps that they are surrounded by or looking at the color red. That’s right! People’s moods can change just because they are looking at different colors! There are many theories on how just a simple color can change one’s whole mood.
According to Johnson (2007), color does affect mood by producing certain chemicals and stimulating different feelings such as hunger. For example, blue can make one feel calm because it releases calming chemicals, and red can make one hungry because it is an appetite stimulant. Yellow can make one feel irritated, and it is a fact that people lose their temper most in yellow rooms. However, pink is tranquilizing and can make one feel weak. In conclusion, Johnson says that depending on the color, one’s body can do things (like producing chemicals) that cause a certain emotional reaction (mad, sad, etc.).
Another idea, by Smith (2007), is that the effect color produces is based on what one’s body does in response. For example, yellow is mentally stimulating, and activates memory, whereas red increases confidence. Also, brown can make a person feel orderly and stable, while a dark blue can make one feel sad. Therefore, Smith says that different colors do in fact change one’s mood and the consequences can be negative or positive.
A third writer, Wollard, (2000) seems to think that color can affect one’s mood, but the effect also can depend on one’s culture and what one’s personal reflection may be. For example, someone from Japan may not associate red with anger, as people from the U.S. tend to do. Also, a person who likes the color brown may associate…...

...Katie Krause M. Thune Abortion Paper 7 December 2008 Abortion Debate According to the philosopher Jane English, the typical question, “Is the fetus a person?” is irrelevant. The reason why it is irrelevant is because of many different reasons for what qualifies something to be a “person”. There are many factors in what most identify as a person. They say there are five parts: Body, Mind, Reason, Social, and Laws. The biological factors are things such as having a genetic code, and being able to eat and sleep is a necessity, because it is what creates life. Psychological factors such as consciousness and the ability to use language is another part of what they classify as “personhood”. Rationality factors are having the ability to reason, and decipher between right and wrong. To be a person, you are equipped with rights from the law. Also, you have to be a social being, which is having the ability to love things and people, and have feelings such as compassion and hatred. The reason why saying a fetus is a person and that is why you cannot kill it is irrelevant, is because not every human being qualifies for all of these parts of being a “person”, and so just because a fetus does not qualify for all of those factors, doesn’t mean it is or is not a person. A person in a coma does not have the ability to communicate, nor does an infant, but they are still people. What IS relevant in the debate about abortion is having psychological similarity and bodily continuity. The......

[1] The need to connect and collaborate with partners, suppliers, customers, and employees anytime and anywhere has increased the difficulty of managing network and systems security. Organizations are challenged with the difficult and overwhelming task of securing and managing network systems, and keeping their desktops and servers up to date. Organizations want easy and efficient ways to maintain network security, manage updates, and, at the same time, reduce total costs for security management.

MASS MEDIA EFFECTS In partial fulfillment of the requirements of Theories of Communication (LAC 701) A paper prepared by Group Four John Fasisi (91817) Kalim Gazal (136615) Moyofade Ipadeola (95580) Nwachukwu Egbunike (147181) Oluwaseun Oti (168137) Seyi Bodunde (168139) Victor Eze (167521) And submitted to: Professor F. A. Adesanoye Department of Communication and Language Arts Faculty of Arts University of Ibadan November 27, 2012 ABSTRACT This literature-driven study examined mass media effects. The work peered into the history of the ‘powerful media’. An in-depth review of relevant theories of mass media effects was analyzed. Findings pointed towards both positive and negative impacts of mass media. However, there was no empirical evidence to substantiate a direct cause and effect relationship of mass media messages with the actions of the consumer of the information. Consequently we can only assert that the mass media impacts on society but does not necessarily have an effect since other factors also influence people other than information consumed from the media. As such, this study asserts that the mass media influences public opinion but does not necessarily cause it. Key words: powerful media, mass media effects, theories of mass media effects, impact of media messages INTRODUCTION The mass media involve organisations that are responsible for the dissemination of information to a large number of people. Basically, the mass...

Nutrition from food is critical for both physical and mental function and growth. National guidelines exist which regulate what constitutes adequate nutrition to support the body, and these guidelines have been at least partially integrated into most school curriculums, as well as food and wellness policies. Although adequate nutrition is vital for the body and mind to function, it is less attainable by some students due to a variety of factors, such as socioeconomic status, cultural barriers, and specific preferences. Many of the academic and behavioral obstacles that students face in the classroom are fueled by inadequate nutrition and lack of understanding about what nutrition is and its importance.......
