...imposed death sentence in which patients are shackled and placed behind bars for the protection of society, it is a treatable disorder that can be controlled and kept at bay. The motive of this paper is to explain the phenomenon of Schizophrenia and to tackle the two main views associated with the potential satisfactory recovery of the illness. Mental illnesses have existed for many years. Long ago, the people who suffered from mental illnesses, deformities, and mental retardation were all classified into one group; abnormal. Early theories speculated that these people had acquired these “abnormalities” due to their bodies being possessed by evil spirits. These evil spirits would ultimately be exorcised by various methods ranging from submitting the patient to various types of music to dangerously drilling a hole in their skull to free them from evil possession. The act of attributing any form of psychopathology to the spiritual world might seem too far-fetched for the average person, but can disgruntled deities and supernatural forces play a pivotal role in the manifestation of mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia? We hold true the fact that no sin shall go unpunished before the presence of God. However is there not a limit to his mercy? In 1911, the influential Swiss Psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler coined the term that we currently refer to as Schizophrenia. Schizophrenia comes from the roots Schizo (split) and phrene (mind), to describe the fragmented thinking of......

...Title: Economics of Reuse of Construction and Demolition Waste: A practical Approach Abstract Construction material waste seems to have caused serious environmental problems in many large cities around the world over the past few years. As pressure for environmentally-friendly building practices increases, companies are discovering that ultimately 'going green' often promotes cost effectiveness and enhances the quality of life. The idea of ‘reuse’ and ‘recycle’ of many construction materials is a smart decision for all builders whether they are interested in environmentally-friendly building or not. At baseline, the research project will adopt three aims: 1) to examine the current issue with waste minimisation, cost implication by effectively management; 2) to investigate the economic analysis of reuse and recycling of construction and demolition waste; 3) to explore various construction materials that can be effectively reused and recycled. In order to achieve the above research aims, the following objectives are set: * To determine the importance of cost reduction techniques for reuse of construction and demolition waste * To investigate whether or not the economics of construction recycled materials can be justified throughout construction activity lifecycle. * To investigate the economic impact of reuse and recycling construction materials on major projects * To develop propose unique theoretical models on decision-making for reuse of construction and...

...myself more with the term or word. I learned a lot of new applications that I will definitely utilize. I have used Previewing a few times in the past but have never made a habit of it. I think it will be a great thing to start using though. It allows you to get a great feel for how long the chapter is and how long it should take you to read. As well as giving you an idea of what the main topics are going to be. Marking is a great way to condense an entire chapter into just the important ideas. That way when it comes time to studying you already have the important parts highlighted or underlined. I have already started to get ideas for making sure I have a place I can read with concentration. I plan on doing a lot of my reading this summer outside on the patio where I have peace and quiet. When the weather is not permitting or when it gets colder again I plan on going to the library or setting my office up with a corner that I am able to read in. The last of the four steps is going to be very important if I want my study time to be efficient. I will often check back to previous notes and assignments so that the ideas stay fresh in my brain. That way when it comes to time to study for a test I am not having to learn everything all over again. I plan on doing a compilation of a few of the vocabulary strategies. When I am reading and come across a word or phrase that I do not understand I am going to make note of it. I will go back later and assess everything I need help......

...Choose your topic. Try to make it as creative as possible; if you're given the opportunity to choose your own, take advantage of this. Choose something you're particularly interested in because this will make it easier to write; in particular, try to select the topic as a result of pressing questions you already know you want to search for answers to. Once you've decided on a topic, be sure to hone down it to a do-able topic; often a topic is initially too broad in its coverage, which will make it impossible to complete within the time and space constraints given. Narrow down your topic to something that can really be worked within the boundaries of the paper. If the topic is already chosen for you, start exploring unique angles that can set your content and information apart from the more obvious approaches many others will probably take. Finally, whatever angle your topic takes, it should be both original in approach and insightful, something the reader will be drawn into and fascinated by. Take great care not to choose a topic and be so set on how you see the outcome of your paper that you're closed to new ideas and avenues of thinking as you work through the paper. This is known in academia as "premature cognitive commitment". It can mar an otherwise good paper because an outcome that is pre-determined in your head, regardless of the research findings along the way, will be molded to fit the outcome, rather than the outcome reflecting a genuine analysis of the......

...Summary According to the article “Analyze a Subject by Breaking it Down and Building it Back Up”, the author explains that analyzing is to break the subject into small, ideas or detailed parts, and where, by looking closely at those parts you identify the purpose or process of discovery to reach a conclusion of the situation. 2. Critical Thinker In my opinion a critical thinker is a multi-dimensional person involved in the process of analyzing, processing and evaluating information. It is also an attitude that shows the ability to explore, probe, ask and search out answers and solution. 3. “Space Invaders” The method does Stengel uses in his introduction to generate reader interest is narrative ( a short story or anecdote). Furthermore, when i was reading the introduction the author spark my curiosity to continue reading the text. It was interesting to me because this is the way that people live today. Its very common looking around, and detect many space invaders. For example, in elevators, people are wedging themselves in just before the doors close or on the street, pedestrains are zigzagging through the human traffic. In short, the phenomenon of invading personal space has become more serious in the current society and this space varies across individuals according to factors such as culture, age, and gender. 4. According to the author, I understand “personal space” as the area around a person which they prefer not be occupied by another person. It is......

...The topic I would like to choose is about auto industry, in recent years, cars had played a vital role in people’s everyday life, and it makes life much more easier than ever before.

...Date: March 14, 2015 Subject: ACL versus IDEA When comparing ACL and IDEA it was hard to choose which was clearly better because they perform such similar tasks. While we think both would be effective at identifying fraud there were a few reasons why we decided that IDEA was the better software. First, ACL simply was not designed as well as IDEA in our eyes. The team member who was assigned to the ACL tutorial had to re-install the program multiple times to “fix” simple errors that should have never arose to begin with. To add to that, it was not very user friendly in general which made it difficult to navigate and look at. ACL was, however, easy to import into Excel due to its inherent similarities with it. On the other hand, the team member who worked with IDEA found the software extremely easy to learn, use and remember and did not run into any problems due to design flaws. It was very easy to import and export from Excel with very simple and easy applications. There was a way to manipulate the data whichever way needed and by the end of the tutorial the team member felt that they were very knowledgeable on the software and felt confident in using it. Although more expensive, we feel it is much more effective and an overall better program. IDEA Tutorial 1. Attached are the 4 random pages from the report. 2. a) Willspo Yip, customer #60300, had the highest balance. b) Andrew Sarabia, customer #20039, had the lowest balance.

...Topic 1: What career would you like to choose after leaving school Model answer: Today, it is not easy to choose a career. Hundreds of students pass various examinations every year and compete with one another for positions in the various professions which are not so many as there are applicants. I would, however, like to choose teaching as my career. Teaching is an interesting career for several reasons. As a teacher I can learn many things, especially if I teach to an udder-secondary school. If I teach History or English, for example, I have to read many books to make my teaching lessons more interesting to my pupils. Thus, I can acquire more knowledge of the subjects that I teach than what I can learn from the class text books. It is indeed a fact that a teacher learns a lot from the class text books; but that is hardly enough to make the teacher's lessons interesting to pupils. A good teacher must therefore read many other books. Again, as a teacher, I have to speak well so that my pupils will be able to understand my instructions well. In this way I can improve my powers of expression. Even my pronunciation of words will improve to great extent. Further, as a teacher, I shall have enough leisure to read and prepare for various examinations. It is possible today to sit for many important examinations by studying entirely at home. Thus, I can acquire important qualifications. Finally, as a teacher I will be respected as an educated person. People will......
