factors influencing conformity and obedience
factors influencing conformity and obedience (three recent studies) Conformity: Three reasons that influence conformity are the ones I am about to list below: Compliance with parties: Compliance is almost the same as conformity the difference between these is that in compliance there is a request for a person to behave in a certain (an act of compliance) way although this doesn't have to be stated. We are doing this so that our behaviours don't stand out or upset the majority. In many occasions these actions are too those which are in accordance with laws or rules and regulations. Self esteem: People who have positive image of themselves have a good self esteem, how you treat others can affect how they feel about themselves, positive comments can boost a persons self esteem and make they're aura more positive, make them have a positive attitude. And therefore work more effectively and be a positive member of the team. Social norms: Social norms are what society deems appropriate for you social group. There was an important study carried out by Deutsch and Gerard in 1955 these found that there were two possible theories that would affect your reaction to social norms these are. Informational Social Influence: This theory consists on the need to analyze different the information and different points of view. When a person is
Assess and evaluate the relationship between religion and social change
Analyse and evaluate the relationship between religion and social change. 40 marks. There are two views at which are assessed when analysing the relationship between religion and social change. One being that religion is an initiator of social change and the other view therefore, being that religion inhibits social change. The views as to whether sociologists believe religion does or does not cause social change will be discussed below. Firstly I will discuss the views at which believe religion is a force of conservatism, in that it prohibits change. Such beliefs originate from both functionalists and Marxists. Although they both believe it hinders social change they interpret it differently. Functionalists believe that religion socializes its members through installing shared norms, values and traditions which prevents change as it promotes integrity and social solidarity. Functionalists such as Durkheim and Parsons argue that life is impossible without the shared norms, values and traditions enforced within society and without them society would fail. This Durkheim calls 'collective consciousness'. Malinowski believes that religion is there for those who are dealing with life crisis' such as death, divorce or birth. For example, when one has died a funeral is formed and many come together to share their grievances which then supports social solidarity and unity within
'Offender profiling is a set of techniques used by law enforcement agencies to try to identify perpetrators of serious crime. Profiling involves analysing the type of offence and how the offence was carried out in order to identify the offender.' (Class notes) 'The personality of an offender can then is found by looking at their behaviour before, during and after the offence.' (Class notes) 'These factors will then be added to the other information and physical evidence and compared with characteristics of different personality types so that a profile can be found.' (Class notes) The primary goals of criminal profiling include the reduction of the viable suspect pool in a criminal investigation, assistance in the linkage of potentially related crimes, assessment of the potential for escalation of criminal behaviour, provision of relevant leads and strategies, and keeping the investigation on track. The criminal profiler is not preoccupied with specifically naming the offender. Criminal profilers are advisors; detectives and investigators solve cases. There are two main systems of looking at offender profiling: The American Approach and The British Approach which is also known as Investigative Psychology, there is also the Geographical approach to offender profiling which looks at thing such as there area the crime is committed and the area the possible offender my be
Fire investigation; the triangle shirtwaist factory fire trial
Assignment 1: Fire investigation; the triangle shirtwaist factory fire trial Task 1 (P1) The triangle shirtwaist factory fire may have been cause by various flammable materials. The flammable materials that I could identify from the text that I was given were the lines of hanging patterns, the discarded rags on the floor and cutting tables, the shirts that have already been made, the table because they were probably made from wood and maybe the ceiling, walls and floor because that may have a material or something else flammable. The possible sources of ignition for the triangle shirtwaist factory fire could have been some faulty cables from the sewing machines causing the wires to rub together causing friction meaning that the cables would get hot and therefore this could be one ignition source. Another source could be gas lighters because in those days people were allowed to smoke in the work place. A gas lighter is not like a lighter nowadays because when it was alight it would not go out unless you put the cap over it unlike the lighter nowadays if you let go/ drop it the button comes back up instantly. Therefore, the gas lighter could have been a source of ignition if it was dropped. Another source of ignition could have been a cigarette. If it was not put out properly and was dropped, it could start the fire. Lastly, candles may have caused the fire because back in

Critical Account of Scientific Reading. Title: "Sunstorm" (A Time Odyssey: Book 2) Author: Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter. Chapter and Page Numbers: Chapter 6 (Forecast) Pages 29 -32 Chapter 8 (Recovery) Pages 41 - 44 Chapter 18 (Announcement) Pages 105 - 123 Book published: Great Britain, Year 2005. Book Edition: I used the 2006 Book edition. Overview of the Book: "Sunstorm" is a book based on an epic account on human epochal struggle to survive and a revelation of human place in a dangerous universe. In the year 2037, the Sun flares. Suddenly, the human high-technology civilisation seems terribly vulnerable. They recover. They re-build Earth, but this is just the precursor. In April 2042, in just five years, the sun will flare once more. But this time, the sun will hurl out in one day the energy it would normally spend in a year. This time nothing on Earth will survive. As plans are drawn up to save the extinction of man-kind, as all Earth's resources are mobilised for one unimaginable engineering effort, one question rages: Why now? The science involved in "Sunstorm": Science is used in this book to portray the high-technology world being hit by a major solar event which occurs on June 9th 2037, disrupting virtually all of the earth's electronic hardware. Dramatic as it is, this phenomenon is only a minor precursor of a far more massive solar
"The Communist victory in 1949 was mainly a result of the economic incompetence of the GMD." How far do you agree with this statement?
"The Communist victory in 1949 was mainly a result of the economic incompetence of the GMD." How far do you agree with this statement? It has been argued that the GMD been finally finished off by the economy problems that it was facing. By 1937 prices began to rise out of control and 65% of the budget was met by the currency expansion that had been introduced and only 10% was met by taxes. To help overcome this problem Chiang borrowed money and printed more paper money, consequently there was an extreme fall in the value if the Chinese currency. Chiang began to depend on foreign aid. The GMD began spending huge sums of money on fighting with the CCP and gathered vast debts that they were unable to repay. The GMD reliance on foreign aid, the US military and financial support has huge. Therefore the GMD were hit really hard by the withdrawal. By the constant depreciation in the value of paper money, the morale was undermined through all the classes which were dependant on salaries (troops, officials, civil officers). By 1949 China's economic system had collapsed and the government was discredited, and the nationalised were demoralised. The GMD's reliance on foreign aid, being the US military and financial support was huge, therefore the GMD were hit really hard by the withdrawal of this. The war against Japan in 1937 played a part in the downfall of the GMD, therefore
What is life?
Life stinks, Life is good, and Life is what we make out of it I woke up this morning thinking about life, about my life, what is life? I wonder if with my young age I had achieved some of the things I wanted or missed part of them, I started to think if my life stinks, or if it is good or maybe is what we make out of it and I understood that according to my point of view, It is what we make out of it. "Life is a game" play it as you live, day by day like an athlete who wants to win. They train everyday, every second, because they have to prepare for worst things, for a hard road, for hard weather because they don't know what will happen next. They just know that they have to give all of them. In this game there is no manual, just some rules that you have to learn to play. It is a game because it changes every time, sometimes you win or sometimes you lose, but it depends on you if you learn, if you enjoy, if you have fun with this pretty game, also it is hard sometimes, full of rocks, and big walls that don't let you see what is on the other side. As persons, we judge, we say a thousands of things of the other players that we don't know, because we are afraid of them, afraid of them being better than us, but we don't admit that, as when we fall, we don't want to get up because we don't want to see the light, because if you fall once you have a thousand reasons to get up, even

Explain how food additives are classified and outline their role in food production -10m
Explain how food additives are classified and outline their role in food production -10m Food produced on mass scales and then distributed to supermarkets needs to have a longer shelf life than fresh foods produced at home which need to be consumed within a shorter time span. Additives are therefore added to such foods to prolong their sell by dates, to prevent the food from going off and giving someone food poisoning. Additives are classified by law into different categories including: Colours are used to modify the appearance of the food and make it more attractive to the consumer and also in some cases to replace the colour lost during the processing to ensure a consistent colour. The most common colouring used is Plain caramel and it makes up 90% of all colouring used. It is brown/black in colour and is obtained from the heating of sugars. Plain caramel can be found in Coca Cola, beer and chocolate. Beta Carotene is another colouring and is found in plants such as carrots and tomatoes Emulsions in food are mixtures of oil and water and emulsifiers keep these mixed without the water and oil separating. They also slow down the rate of staling in baked products. There are two types: oil-in-water & water-in-oil, as water and oil do not mix emulsifier will prevent them separating into layers. Emulsifiers make food more appealing as well as giving it structure and texture.
types of childrens behaviour
Managing Behaviour- Task 1 Jodie Bloomer "Behaviour is a complex concept and can mean many different things to many different people...Behaviour includes everything that we say or do that can influence or have an impact on another person." (Riddall-Leech, S. 2003. p.3). There are a range of factors that can affect behaviour in young children. These are: Physical and health-related factors Parenting strategies Birth trauma Difficulties in pregnancy Possible vaccine reactions Medication Genetic influences Disabilities Brain development Communication Hearing and speech development An example of the effects of parenting strategies is if the parents adopt an authoritarian approach to parenting with "high levels of control and demands on child" as this could result in the child having "low self-esteem, lower achievement in school, subdued/ aggressive tendencies." (Tassoni, P. 2006 p.401). Mental and emotional Family states of well being Support structures Financial Stress Siblings Nuclear and extended families Baby/ child care facilities Family patterns Life experiences Low self-esteem Chaos Nurture stimuli Gender Cultural Religious influences An example of the effects of low self-esteem is that "children who have low self-esteem are less likely to put themselves in challenging and new situations." (Tassoni, P. 2006 p.402). This means that children
