Chapter 1: Learning Objectives
1. Explain the importance of the terms applied and interdisciplinary as they help to define the field of child development. Interdisciplinary is when it has grown through the combined efforts of people from many fields of the combined efforts of people from many fields of study. When it comes to applied it is added to an experiment or study theory and it can be changed.
2. List the age periods researchers use to study child development, and cite and describe the three domains in which development is often divided. There are six periods researchers use to study child development. The first is the prenatal which is conception to birth. Next is the infancy and toddlerhood which is from birth to two years. Early childhood is next and that stage is two to six years old. Then it’s the middle childhood which is from six to eleven years old. Adolescence follows after which is from ages eleven to eighteen. Next is the emerging adulthood which is eighteen to twenty five years old. With age periods there is also three domains in which development is divided. First is physical which includes change in health, functioning of the body system, perceptual and motor capacities, body size proportion and appearance. Next is cognitive which describes changes in intellectual abilities. Last is emotional and social, which are changes in emotional communication, interpersonal skills and relationship, moral reasoning and behavior, self-understanding, and knowledge about others.
3. Explain the role of theories in understanding child development, describe the three basic issues on which major theories take a stand, and explain the concepts of plasticity and stability in development. Theories play an important role when it comes to understanding child development. Theories help describe behaviors, explain behavior, and…...

Log Pearson

...Log-Pearson Type III Distribution What is it? The Log-Pearson Type III distribution is a statistical technique for fitting frequency distribution data to predict the design flood for a river at some site. Once the statistical information is calculated for the river site, a frequency distribution can be constructed.  The probabilities of floods of various sizes can be extracted from the curve. The advantage of this particular technique is that extrapolation can be made of the values for events with return periods well beyond the observed flood events. This technique is the standard technique used by Federal Agencies in the United States. How is it calculated? The Log-Pearson Type III distribution is calculated using the general equation: where x is the flood discharge value of some specified probability,  is the average of the log x discharge values, K is a frequency factor, and  is the standard deviation of the log x values. The frequency factor K is a function of the skewness coefficient and return period and can be found using the frequency factor table.  The Log-Pearson Type III distribution tells you the likely values of discharges to expect in the river at various recurrence intervals based on the available historical record. This is helpful when designing structures in or near the river that may be affected by floods. It is also helpful when designing structures to protect against the largest expected event. For this reason, it is customary to perform the......

...Omar Hassan Principles of Management Professor Joe MArkert October 10, 2012 In the article “Objectives of an Organization” one can learn that a business or organization’s vision and mission plays a very important role in maintaining a consistently successful business. Workers of an organization and just people in general tend to lose track towards the path to success without a vision providing strategies for the future of a company. An organization that lacks this ingredient is likely to fail in achieving its goal. Therefore, It is very essential that the leader of an organization sets a well defined and reachable goal for which an organization could work towards achieving. With this being said, I feel that CEO’s/leaders truly have a very vital role in terms of setting the vision and mission for the organization ultimately building it into a stronger one. It doesn't just take any highly ranked manager to convey the vision/mission to the employees, but one that is cautious, aware, and very well understands the job enough to be able to clearly communicate to the employees so that they can appropriately work their part seriously. This technique can also help managers to guide worker’s behaviors. Relatively, I believe that setting such motivational and propelling guidance such as vision and mission to influence employees behaviors is crucial when trying to maintain a positive working atmosphere because it will drive workers into providing outstanding results. Thus, it......

Pearson Case Analysis

...Pearson Case Analysis I. Executive Summary: Pearson’s Digital Learning Division’s Vice President of Product Management, Greg Adams-Woodford, is beginning to feel the growing pains of a new product development process that he launched after joining the organization one-year ago. The process transformation from a “Waterfall” to “Aigle” methodology was introduced as a means to tackle a disconnect between what the customer wants and what the software developers are producing. As Adams-Woodford works to develop a product road map, he is faced with three critical decisions: 1. Move from one form of the Aigle process (Scrum) to a newer process (Kanban), 2. Extend the Aigle methodology to other teams within the business unit, and 3. Expand Aigle to other teams outside of the business unit in the organization at large. Recommendations for Adam-Woodford are as follows: * Meet with a software development product managers and other key influencers within the business function to analyze, evaluate, and decide to move forward with a Scrum or Kanban process, * After a sufficient Aiglie problem resolution with the software development group, Adam-Woodford should expand Aigle to other teams within the business unit deemed appropriate, * And postpone extending the Aigle process to other Pearson business units in order to focus on the current, more urgent needs, within his product management scope. II. Problem: How can the VP within the Digital Learning Division of the North......

...Pearson was in the middle of its first major upgrade of its SuccessMaker product when Greg Adams-Woodford joined the firm. Despite the best efforts of all the people involved, the upgrade was not going to plan because of which Pearson moved from the traditional waterfall model to the new agile development methodology. Benefits realized in shifting from Waterfall to Agile 1. With the iterative and evolving approach, the agile methodology allowed Pearson to have a customer driven approach to development which allowed them to meet customer expectations in a more efficient manner compared to earlier. 2. Since the agile model focused on short iterative sprints, it helped in reducing the costs related to changes to the product features midway through the development cycle. 3. The agile model allowed teams in Pearson to adapt, design, and prioritize product features based on the feedback they received from product managers and customers. 4. Another advantage that Pearson realized was that using the agile model made the process backward scalable. In other words, it became easier to develop the software as the requirements kept coming in from the customers. Despite the advantages that Pearson realized from moving to the agile model, there were also some downsides that Pearson faced when they shifted from the waterfall model to the agile development model. Downsides associated with shifting to Agile 1. In the waterfall model there were clear lines between what......

...www.thetimes100.co.uk Social responsibility - using resources more efficiently Curriculum Topics • Aims and objectives • SMART objectives • Strategy • Tactics Images supplied by Vismedia Introduction The challenge facing business and society in the 21st century is how to use resources more efficiently. Every business large or small needs to consider carefully: 1. how to reduce its use of energy 2. how to minimise waste. The central economic problem is how to match finite resources with unlimited wants. With the demand for resources rising as the world economy grows this is becoming more of a challenge. Leading global companies like Anglo American strive to find new solutions to this problem every day. Anglo American is one of the world’s largest mining companies. Its portfolio of mining businesses spans precious metals and minerals – in which it is a global leader in platinum and diamonds, base metals (copper and nickel) and bulk commodities (iron ore, metallurgical coal and thermal coal). The company’s mining operations and extensive pipeline of growth projects are located in southern Africa, South America, Australia, North America and Asia. The purpose of the organisation is set out in a mission statement. In 2008 there was a downturn in world economic activity. This resulted from a loss of confidence in the world financial system. The downturn led to a steep fall in commodity prices such as coal, copper and platinum. By late 2009 these prices started to......

...Project title: Project Nature: Environment Objective: The purpose of this project is based from what one of the barangays that we had talked to needed and that is cleaning materials like for example, trash bins. We chose Barangay Teresa as a community to help since we also noticed that there are only few trash bins around the area (especially along the street way to the main entrance gate of our campus) which is one source why the surroundings are so messy. We also would like to include having a seminar about what we had learned on our topic last CWTS 1 which is proper waste disposal.

Without understanding human behaviour it is very difficult to work in an organisation. In order to understand human behaviour let us see how the perception of human being has changed from time to time. All organisations are composed of individuals, with different personality, attitudes, values, perception, motives, aspirations and abilities. The main reason to understand behaviour is that individuals are different. No two individuals are similar. In the early studies, theories of organisation and management treated people as though they were the same; scientific management was based on the similarities among workers, not the......

...time, or place (Sickels,1868). This allows for people to describe in detail what they see, whether it is a person, place, or thing. Second, is the sense of hearing. Hearing is the sense by which we distinguish sounds to allow us to hear conversations between individuals, music that is playing, and the sounds of everyday life (Sickels,1868). Both of which play a role when defining the main characteristics of objectivity, which goes unnoticed in everyday life. Objectivity is an important concept and practice that is used throughout most professions around the country. However it is most often used in the criminal justice profession. “More often than not, criminal justice professionals are writing reports and findings based on facts. Objective writing means that you are writing only what you observed as factual. When writing reports based on facts, it's important to exclude personal feelings or opinions on the issue. For example, if a police officer or probation officer is writing an incident report, they would not include their personal opinion on the subject's behavior” (Rasmussen,2014). It is not professional or ethical to include personal judgments or biases within an official report. In some cases, there may be a need to include a recommendation based on facts. When this is necessary, a professional opinion can be drawn, but only based on facts” (Rasmussen,2014). It is important in the criminal justice profession to use objectivity reporting because they want real......

...market. However, he goes through some difficulties. The main obstacle is that most of the employees have never experienced Agile approach, so some resistance should be expected. It is a huge and fast shift. The teams start the new approach during the process which makes them confused and stressed about the upcoming process. The shift happens in less than a week, so the employees have to familiarize with it quickly. The training that the coach provides, is not enough to help them be in harmony with Agile. Additionally, the teams notice that they have to change almost every single step they have used to. In my perspective, the shift has to be, but the problem is that the time may not be appropriate and the project is also very critical to Pearson, so this step should be thoroughly taken to ensure the applicability....

...Chapter 3 Objectives 1. Describe receptors and ligand. Receptors are cell-associated proteins located at the surface that bind to ligand. The binding of a receptor and ligand induce changes in the receptor, which act to transmitted the ligand-binding signal into the interior of the cell and alter cellular functions such as proliferation, cell death, cell reproduction. 2. Explain the signal transduction pathway and their elements. Signal transduction pathway is the route by which ligand-receptor interaction is translated into biochemical change inside the cell. This process is initiated by the binding interaction of complementary ligand and receptor during sufficient time and strength that bring a biochemical change in the receptor. The upstream components consist of elements closest to the receptor. The downstream components are closest to the effector molecule. 3. Describe Immuno-receptor Tyrosine Activation Motif (ITAM) and list some of the molecules associated with B- and T- cell antigen receptors. The ITAM is a pair of long cytoplasmic tail that is found on signaling proteins within the immune system. It contains tyrosine that is phosphorylated after signal transduction of associated receptors. The phosphorylation of ITAM facilitated the initiation of signaling cascade. Other molecules associated with B and T cell antigen receptors are CD19 /CD20 on B cells that bind to complement molecules attached to antigens and CD4 and CD8 on T cells that bind...

...Objective As markets become more competitive many companies recognise the importance of retaining current customers and some have initiated a variety of activities to improve customer loyalty. Indeed, the benefits associated with customer loyalty are widely recognised within business. It is known that long-term customers are more likely to expand their relationship within the product range and so the rewards from this group are long term and cumulative. Another widely perceived benefit is that repeat or behaviourally loyal customers are also thought to act as information channels, informally linking networks of friends, relatives and other potential customers to the organisation. Much academic literature has sought to define customer loyalty and many of these reviews are discussed within this paper. However, consensus points to customer loyalty being characterised by the customer’s preference to purchase a product, service or from an organisation consistently when the need arises to purchase. The key issues of this characterisation are preference and consistency. The Discussion of Consumern Loyalty The most widely accepted definition of loyalty is by Jacoby and Kyner (1973), who describe loyalty as the biased, behavioural response, expressed over time, by some decision making unit, with respect to one or more alternative brands out of a set of such brands, and is a function of psychological processes. At a very general level, loyalty is something that consumers may......
