Aim: To be able to identify the five different fruit flavors of skittles by using the sense of taste, while the participants of this experiment are blindfolded.
In this experiment, the question that was asked was, are elephants afraid of mice? The hypothesis is if a mouse is placed near an elephant, then the elephant will be frightened. The experimenters traveled to an African safari to perform the experiment with their test subjects (an African elephant and a white mouse). They hid the mouse in elephant dung and rolled over the dung whenever elephants passed by. At first there was speculation that the elephants might have been startled by the moving dung. But, after retesting the experiment they realized that was not the case. Only the presence of the mouse seem to stop the elephant in their tracks. The independent variables in this experiment were the methods (such as the elephant dung, the string, the mouse) used as well as the breed of the elephant and mouse. The dependent
In his expository text, “Blink”, Malcom Gladwell uses rhetorical questions to get the reader interested in the content of the book. This trend begins in the introduction where Gladwell introduces the idea that the subconscious mind has extraordinary abilities that people do not know about. After the Getty museum was asked to buy a Greek Kouro statue that was in almost perfect condition. The Getty performed an investigation to determine whether the Kouro was a forgery or not. When introducing this event, Gladwell asks the reader, “Was the statue consistent with other known kouroi?”(Gladwell 2), and “Where and When had the statue been found?” (Gladwell 4). While Gladwell obviously does not expect the reader to answer
A common debate of the classroom is whether students could chew gum in class. As it turns out, research shows that chewing gum has many positive effects. Students should chew gum because of all the positive benefits. Some benefits of chewing gum are calmed appetites and more concentration. Chewing gum also releases stress. From calming your appetite, to concentrating more, to releasing stress, there are many positive reasons for students to chew gum in class.
In lab 3, fundamentals of chromatography, the purpose was to examine how components of mixtures can be separated by taking advantage of different in physical properties. A huge process in this lab was paper chromatography, which was used to isolate food dyes that are found in different drink mixes. The different chromatograms of FD&C dyes were compared to identify which dyes are present in each of the mixes. Chromatograms where made for the known FD&C and for the three Kool-Aid samples. The retention factor for each dye was calculated. F or each of the Kool-Aid flavors, 2.0 g was weighed out from the packet and 5mL of water was mixed in with them each. mL of 0.1% NaCl solution was added to 100mL of bottled water. The six chromatography strips
Students should be allowed to chew gum in school because it improves education with students, helps students focus, and chewing gum helps with oral hygiene. There are many downfalls to chewing gum in schools, but there are a lot of positives to chewing the flavorful treat and chewing gum can be a positive thing.
PepsiCo had introduced their new formula product to the world in 1999 and the product had finally become available in the United States in 2003. The company promised that the new Sierra Mist Natural lemon-lime soda is going to be make with natural flavors, real sugar, and nothing artificial. Additionally, they used the nature as their themes in the advertisement campaigns to boost the products’ freshness feelings for the audiences to see and feel when they look at the advertisement. PepsiCo targets audiences who love natural, no caffeine, freshness, and make with real sugars products. To be able to get the audience’s attention, PepsiCo uses the strategies of ethos, pathos, and logos to inform the audiences to get their product.
Discuss the key challenges and marketing issues Andrea Torres must address at this time. Why do you feel these issues and challenges are key to the success of the new product line?
This ted talk don’t eat the marshmallow yet teaches you that if you delay gratification for an even bigger reward you will succeed in life. It is proved that this trait will help you in every single job. At Stanford they did a test on a large group of 4 year old’s with a marshmallow. They left them in a room with the marshmallow for 15 minutes. If the marshmallow was still there, they would get a second marshmallow. If they had eaten it they would not get a second marshmallow. The test showed that a large percentage of the kids who ate the marshmallow did not succeed in their hero’s journey. Also a large percentage of the kids who did not eat the marshmallow succeeded in their hero’s journey. My personal opinion on this is that
I’m going to talk about other researcher experiment on “How long would it take to get to the center of the Tootsie Roll Pop”. Also my point of view on what I think about their say on their experiment about “How long would it take to get to the center of the Tootsie Roll Pop”. On the Tootsie Roll web page they had three scientific studies that have attempted to determined on how many licks it take to get to the center of the Tootsie Roll Pop. The first one is from a Purdue University where a “A group of engineering students from Purdue University reported that its licking machine, modeled after a human tongue, took an average of 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. Twenty of the group's volunteers assumed the licking challenge-unassisted by machinery-and averaged 252 licks each to the center”. The second one is from University of Michigan where “a chemical engineering doctorate student from the University of Michigan recorded that his customized licking machine required 411 licks to reach the Tootsie Roll center of a
Psychological Research can range from being simple to very complex. Psychological research deals with the research that psychologist have conducted to analyze the behavior of individuals. When conducting these researches there are special guidelines which need to be taken. If the researcher fails to meet these guidelines the research may be classified as unethical.
The human retina is full of photoreceptor cells, cells that detect light, that are essential for proper vision. These cells contain the protein, rhodopsin, that enables them to detect light. When exposed to light part of these proteins detach from the phospholipid bilayer and enter the cell to be either destroyed or recycled to form more rhodopsin. However, the process by which rhodopsin is recycled has been mostly unknown until now. Similar processes are used in other cells to maintain the large surface areas they need to function, such as cells in the gut and lungs. This research relates to biology as it studies the changes in cells required to maintain homeostasis, a state of internal regulation required by all living organisms. This information is not only relevant to biology, but also to the general community as it could be used to better understand and treat macular degeneration, a disease in which vision and light sensitivity is gradually lost.
Chewing gum is an enigma. Its essence lays somewhere between a habit, and a snack. For many, it staves off hunger pangs, while for others, chewing gum can act as a stress reliever. Thanks to an industrious and insightful salesman, the world can chew up their anxieties, and ward off hunger. Wrigley's chewing gum was a product whose time had come only after William Wrigley Jr. discovered that his customer base was more receptive to the chewing gum he used as a promotion, than the flagship product he was selling. By listening to his customers, William Wrigley Jr. founded today's most successful gum company worldwide.
I would get 200 random men and women combined to be the participants for this study. I would get about 500 polo shirts for them to choose from. I would use two studies for this experiment. The first study would be on just the color of the shirt. The second study would be on the design of the shirt. They would either be bright colored or dark colored shirts. I would tell each one of my participants to pick about 5 shirts that they think they like best. If they picked mostly bright colored shirts then I would know that they are an overall good person. If they picked mostly dark colored shirts then I would know that they are an overall bad
After I conducted my experiment I read the article, The Fixed-Unit Effect: How Socially Consumed Partitioned Food Affects Consumption My Bui by Brennan Davis and Collin R. Payne. After reading the article I discovered that the results from my experiment were highly correlated to the experiments that were conducted in the article by authors Brennan Davis and Collin R. Payne.
