  • In essays with settings that range from the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, to the mountain town of Leadville, Colorado, to the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, Trudy Dittmar weaves personal experience with diverse threads of subject matter to create unexpected connections between human nature and nature at large. Life stories, elegantly combined with mindful observations of animals, plants, landscape and the skies, theories in natural science, environmental considerations, and touches of art criticism and popular culture, offer insights into the linked analogies of nature and soul....

  • Psychology is the Science of Mental Life, both of its phenomena and of their conditions. The phenomena are such things as we call feelings, desires, cognitions, reasonings, decisions, and the like; and, superficially considered, their variety and complexity is such as to leave a chaotic impression on the observer.

  • “In striving for entertainment, our imagination must have neither limits nor bounds. It has always been a basic need in creative efforts. ‘Imagination,’ wrote Stanislavsky, ‘must be cultivated and developed; it must be alert, rich and active. An actor (animator) must learn to think on any theme. He must observe people (and animals) and their behavior—try to understand their mentality.’ “To one degree or another, people in our audience are aware of human and animal behavior. They may have seen, experienced or read about it.

  • An estimated 67% to 93% of human communication (according to university researchers) is nonverbal, and your body language reveals your internal emotional state. Whether someone's parents just died, or whether they just got promoted to CEO... you can tell by observing their body language. So, as a man who tries to pick up and seduce women, you should be mindful of what you're communicating non-verbally. Body language consists of the following: - Your movements.

  • The very latest research is uncovering a stream of evidence revealing evolution in action - from the actual observation of a species splitting into two, to new fossil discoveries, to the deciphering of the evidence stored in our genome. Why Evolution is True weaves together the many threads of modern work in genetics, palaeontology,geology, molecular biology, anatomy, and development to demonstrate the 'indelible stamp' of the processes first proposed by Darwin. It is a crisp, lucid, and accessible statement that will leave no one with an open mind in any doubt about the truth of evolution....

  • Chemistry is the science which treats of the intra-atomic or the intra-molecular changes which material things undergo under various influences. Mental is defined as “of or appertaining to the mind, including intellect, feeling, and will, or the entire rational nature.” Science is knowledge gained and verified by exact observation and correct thinking. Mental chemistry is, therefore, the science which treats of the changes which material conditions undergo through the operations of the mind, verified by exact observation and correct thinking.

  • If the proof of such a trivial consequence of sin2 A + cos2 A = 1 is now reserved only for college-intending students, how does NCTM expect the average high school graduate to understand sec2 A = 1+tan2 A ? To graph (sec2 A) and (1+tan2 A) separately and observe that the two graphs coincide, as suggested in [PEL]? With this in mind, we find it hard to believe that “the mathematics of [the Standards’] core program is sufficiently broad and deep so that students’ options for further study would not be limited” ([N1], p.9).

  • The user research strategy depends on the type of app and its stage in the development cycle. In most cases, apps in the very early stages will benefit from observational methods, whereas apps in later stages will benefit from observational methods combined with app prototypes. As you develop and execute your research plan, keep in mind the following: • • • Some user research is better than no user research. If you’re seriously strapped for time, keep the study small and recruit through friends and family.

  • What accents itself in the mind of the layman who makes even a cursory study of the sculptors and their works at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition is the fine, inspiring sincerity and uplift that each man brings to his work. One cannot be a great sculptor otherwise. The sculptor's work calls for steadfastness of purpose through long years of study, acute observation, the highest standards, fine intellectual ability and above all a decided universalism - otherwise the world soon passes him by. It is astonishing to see brought together the work of so many really great sculptors.

  • From microorganisms to whales, from single cells to complex organisms, from plants to animals to fungi, from body plans to behavior, the diversity of life is amazing. Living organisms have a profound impact on our physical world of ocean, landscape, and climate; around us is a multitude of diverse ecosystems that provide a livable environment and many valuable resources. The study of life—biology—is a multifaceted endeavor that uses observation, exploration, and experiments to gather information and test hypotheses about topics ranging from climate change to stem cells.

  • Haugeland (1998) eloquently describes the relation between mind and world as one of intimacy, a ‘commingling’ or ‘integralness’ of mind, body, and world. Cognition depends as much on aspects of the agent’s environment as on the agent’s inherent properties. Because it is the joint effect of these properties that control cognition, their contributions to individual cognitive processes cannot be considered one by one.

  • Often we mathematicians are inarticulate when challenged to explain why mathematics is such a critical aspect of K - 12 education today. We know it is, but are so involved in the subject that we have not looked at the broader perspective of the way in which mathematics actually interacts with today’s society. So what follows are some observations that may well be useful in this regard.

  • The pioneering work of Bra˚ nemark ushered in a new era in dentistryd the era of implant dentistry. Bra˚ nemark and his colleagues created a new field of study from a serendipitous research observation, thus exemplifying Pasteur’s dictum that ‘‘chance favors the prepared mind.’’ Through further research, these investigators transformed the field of implantology from an unpredictable art to a well-grounded clinical science. This research provided the scientific basis for a set of strict clinical protocols.

  • Scientific perception of nature relies on a process of transforming data to information, and then information into understanding. Data consist of observations and measurements and information is data organized according to some ontology, i.e. some set of assumptions about what entities exist and how they should be classified. Understanding is a model in the investigator’s mind that describes how the entities relate to each other, a model created in the investigator’s mind as a result of thinking.

  • I do not wish to appear prejudiced against scientists. I am not prejudiced, but I have observed the scientific mind in action, on a great many occasions, and I find it rather incomprehensible. It is true that there are men with a scientific turn of mind who, at the same time, you can feel safe to stand with shoulder to shoulder, in an emergency. Young Hendricks, who was my junior officer on theErtak, back in those early days of the Special Patrol Service, about which I have written so much, was one of these. Nor, now that I come to...

  • Animation! This is the vehicle you have chosen to express yourself in. A whole list of "tools" are required: drawing, timing, phrasing, action, acting, pantomime, staging, imagination, observation, interpretation, logic, caricature, creativity, clarity, empathy, and so on—a mind boggling array of prerequisites. Rest at ease. You were born with all of them. Some of them may need a little sharpening, others may need to be awakened as from a deep sleep, but they are as much a part of you as arms, legs, eyes, kidneys, hemoglobin, and speech.

  • You may have to rotate or change the view several times to get the arms to go where you want them to. Keep in mind that when people walk, the legs and arms have opposing motion: right leg forward means right arm back. It might take a while to get things just right, but be patient — learning to create poses does not happen in an instant. If you can do so without feeling silly, you should try walking naturally around your work area, observing how your arms and hands swing and twist to give yourself a reference. Of course, if you have a video camera available...
