Alzheimer’s gradually clog up that connective wiring over time. The good news is that different parts of the brain handle different functions, and Alzheimer’s does not damage all of them at the same time or rate. So a person’s sense of humor may be intact while the storage unit for remembering what just happened takes a big hit, or a person remembers some arcane facts of arts history but not how many children he or she has. Changes in the brain’s chemical balance have also been recognized in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Brain cells that function normally produce special chemicals called neurotransmitters, which help send signal throughout the body to ensure its proper functioning.
Positive Thinking and Conflict There are many times in one’s life where a simple positive gesture can make their day. Anne, in “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank along with Louise Ogawa in “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, display attitudes that not only helped themselves, but gave other people hope. Though some might argue that positivity during a conflicting situation won’t help resolve anything, having a positive outlook on a negative situation can help someone solve their disagreement swiftly and efficiently. The best way someone can respond to conflict is with a positive attitude because it can be a stress reliever, give tremendous benefits to their physical health, and make others around them happier. Having a positive attitude can make people less stressed during a time of conflict.

Recommendations Based on the data that I have collected both from the WJ III assessment and the CBA that I conducted, I would recommend that the focus of Brian’s help should be on applied problems with focus on math fluency. There were other areas where performed below grade equivalency but I feel that the focus should be on math fluency because there is a chance that once he has mastered math fluency, his performance in the area of applied problems may come up as a result. I recommend that Brian be tutored at least twice a week, every week for thirty minutes per session in order to help him with his math fluency and applied problems. This tutoring should be completed at home by his parents as a way to enhance the lessons that he gets while

Gladwell’s arguments are structured well and he has many examples to back up his research. Although none of the examples fit together, each one relates to the law of the few. Watts was able to prove Gladwell wrong about connectors when he revisited the Milgram experiment. Gladwell’s examples are compelling, but Watt’s examples are more up to date. The big picture is that these three people are crucial to epidemics because of their abilities, but if Connectors are not as crucial as they used to be, there is now a whole different argument.
