The Crania Project The skulls describe in this project numbered 6.
This skull according to the display case located in Fanner Hall contained the following pieces of information.
From these and the other pieces of information that took the form of laminated card over the skulls, I was able to determined by looking at the skulls and cross-referring what I have learned have allowed me to conclude what the genus and species is. The first of these skulls I could identify is cranium F. The skull was of dull brown color form the jaw was a white tooth. The card above the skull indicated it was “discovered in modern day France.” Also continued “Upper Paleolithic stone tools upwards of 30,000 years old. The card also said that the chin had no retro molar space. I have identified this skull as Homo sapiens. I identified that the skull had a large brain case it was larger then most of the skull in the case. It also had smaller teeth then the other skulls. Where the skin may have once stretched across that face this frontal part of the skull lacked the prominent brow ridges and other protrusion and curves that the other skull had. This indicated to also the presences of a high fore head in so far that the fore head was future away for the skull then the others. These features lead me to conclude that this skull was that of Homo sapiens.

The next skull I could identify was cranium F. This skull according to the card was “found in East Africa”. “Dates from 2.2 million years ago to 1.3 million years ago.” Thick enamel”, “diet most likely included seed, tubers, roots. “Small brain size (530 cardinal capacity).” I identified this skull with Australopithecus Africans.
This skull seemed to have teeth more like the Homo sapiens skull. This skull was rounded on the top with what looked to be a projecting face away…...

...see what you can do, rather than what you say you can do, in a variety of situations. How are the Assessment and Development Centre Exercises Conducted?  Assessment Centres may be conducted by HR personnel within the employer company or by outside consultants. They are highly structured in their design, application, and assessment procedure and are specifically adapted to assess factors such as your level of skills, aptitude and compatibility with the organization's culture. Each test measures a range of indicators within these factors.  During each test, a group of observers will rate you on a range of set indicators, using a prescribed performance scale. Results are then cross compared against the same indicators, which are measured in other tests. Following test completion, observers meet to discuss the test results and reach a group consensus about your ratings. At the beginning of the assessment, you should receive an initial briefing about the timetable of tests, location of rooms etc. Prior to each test, you will be given instructions describing the exercise, your role, timeframe's, equipment etc. You will not be told in detail about the individual indicators which will be measured. In addition, you are unlikely to receive feedback on your results, unless you have been successfully selected.    | Training for Assessors: A collection of activities for training assessment centre assessors, roleplayers and resource persons 25/07/2002 - 16:42 - 1877 reads The...

What Does the Mirror Stands for in “Beware: Do Not Read This Poem” by Ishmael Reed.

...What does the mirror stands for in “Beware: Do Not Read This Poem” by Ishmael Reed. Ishmael Reed is known for his satirical works challenging American political culture, and highlighting political and cultural oppression. In Beware: Do Not Read This Poem Reed protests against cultural dominance. Culture is a part of people, and language and art are parts of culture. And in this poem Reed talks about how people are made by cultures and lost to other cultures. However, Reed’s rightness of cultural protest is not of concern here, rather, the symbolic presentation of the mirror is under scrutiny here; and it can be said that the mirror represents art, literature and strikingly the poem itself. The poem starts with how an old woman becomes obsessed with mirrors, and grows isolated from the community, and how she abandons her old life and finds a new life among her mirrors, by disappearing herself within it. By this old woman’s story poet recalls the enchanting effects of literature and art on a reader. Poet rejects the idea of art and literature as a simple mirror reflecting life, and rather, claims it as a living experience. One finds reflection of his own life in literature, like the mirror, and gets lost in his imagination. At times, literature creates a whole new world, a world where things are very different, sometimes surreal, yet a reader finds reality in it, as it is really happening; and as he moves deeper into the story, the imagination becomes so strong that he begins...

The statistics related to school absenteeism are staggering. Each school day, 2,500,000 students are reported The dropout rate is estimated at 27 absent from school. percent nationally and over 45 percent in some cities. The 27 percent dropout rate equates to 65 busloads of students who leave United States schools each week and do not return. In a year's time, 700,000 students will be lost. In two years, the number will exceed one million (Person, 1990). The Virginia Department of Education has created a system for better and more accountable schools through what is now called the Outcome Accountability Project (OAP). This program establishes the criteria for how schools and school divisions will be held accountable for meeting the commitment of improving learning for all. The data from the OAP provides a framework for analyzing the school district by breaking the whole into some of its parts. The attendance data for secondary students provided by the OAP for the State of Virginia indicates that 66 percent of students in grades 9-12 during the school year '95-'96 were absent 10 days or less from school. The OAP data further lists Newport News Public Schools as having 55 percent of its grades 9-12 students absent 10 days or less from school (OAP Report, 1997). The school philosophy, in......

We Are What We Read

... When we were born, we were ignorant, innocent, by going to school, we read, we write, we communicate, and gradually we grow up to what we are today. Just imagine: what human history will be like if they don't read. First of all, reading makes us more intelligent. As the old saying goes, if a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it from him. For example, we are able to think clearly, sensibly and logically by reading detective stories such as Sherlock Holmes. Secondly, reading can broaden our vision. The main way we learn the things happened long time ago is according to the book. Men will try their best to write the things in their stage in their way. When we read books, we have the opportunity to learn everything. The content in the books contains the knowledge all over the world and every aspect. We can read the knowledge about biography, science, technology, culture, economic and so on from the book. It is hard not to broaden vision from reading. Then, reading can cultivate our taste. I am sure that reading some elegant sentence or the beautiful things described in the book will make us feel relax and comfortable. And we all know that the more knowledge a person has, the better-behaved he will be. I think this is the charming of reading. If there are more person like reading, the world will become more civilized. Reading helps men not only learn more knowledge but also improve the self-cultivation. Reading helps men not only broaden their horizon but also......

Read to Me

...READ TO ME  Why a love of reading is so important in learning to read.  How to instill children's love for reading, as a teacher or parent (what are your suggestions or ideas for promoting children's motivation of reading)? Overview: The Read to Me Project is targeted at students in pre-school. This program is structured to help in the development of reading skills in young children before kindergarten. By encouraging young children to read you are opening up a gateway to a promising future. As a parent and a teacher you know how important reading is. Teaching reading to young children has too many benefits to list but here’s a few: * Reading encourages academic excellence * Language Skills are improved * Communication skills are increased The issue with learning how to read is that it can be complex to those who have no interest or those who cannot grasp the concept at hand. It is a known fact that everyone learns in a different way. Per Shomshak, L., (2004) some students learn in the following styles: THREE BASIC LEARNING STYLES 1. Auditory learners - like to hear their information, talk about and rehash what they hear, love to read aloud and hear stories. 2. Visual learners - want to see everything, look at pictures, understand better by seeing than hearing, like writing. 3. Kinesthetic learners - like hands-on experience, doing, touching, activity, concrete demonstrations. So how can we instill the love of reading into your minds? This......

Learning to Read

...Choose a book. If you're reading for your own enjoyment, you'll probably want to pick a general interest fiction or nonfiction book. There are literally millions of such books, so finding one that's right for you can be challenging. A good place to start is by thinking about what you like, and also about what you don't like. Keep in mind how many different types of books are out there. There are dystopian books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. There are realistic fiction books such as Perfect by Natasha Friend. There are fantasy books like The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer. There are historical fiction books like Dragonwings by Laurence Yep, and so many others. Knowing your personal taste can really help you find a book you'll find enjoyable. Just because someone else says a book is good doesn't mean you'll necessarily enjoy it. Some people enjoy fantasy novels, other people hate them. Think about what kind of an experience you want to have while reading. Do you want a rousing adventure tale? A cerebral exploration of ideas? An emotional journey through the lives of believable characters? How long of a book do you want to read? How challenging do you want it to be? Are there certain perspectives you want your book to embrace or avoid? Answering these questions will narrow down the field of possible books. Nonfiction books can be a little easier to narrow down than fiction ones. Most popular nonfiction books are histories or biographies of famous people. Is there......

No Read, No Write

...NO READ, NO WRITE As an Atenean, I am given life on a sliver platter. We are all known for a reality where our unlimited wants and needs are given to us in a blink of an eye. Despondently, this reality isn’t shared by all of the Filipino people. The luxuries of life we have are near impossible for others, just like the family in the picture. Children like the little girl should be in school, not in the streets. In 2010, Philippines ranks 134th in the world’s poorest and 15 million Filipinos are illiterate. That’s almost 15% of the entire Filipino population, enough to populate the entire National Capital Region. One out of six school-age Filipino children is not enrolled, figures from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) Imagine the country’s capital, a whole region, made up of only illiterate citizens, is our country this oblivious to the educational needs of the Filipino people? Teacher should be given incentives in order to compensate for the hours of work put into their efforts to teach and environments should be provided which would make learning an enjoyable experience for both teacher and student. In other words, the government needs to use the budget to build the foundation of our nation’s education, not to squander for personal interests. . The recently implemented K-12 curriculum has been drastically applied in both private and public schools. Teachers are currently undergoing trainings and......

...locals.” “We also have a group of acid survivors working for us,” she added. “We have several groups working for us that come from the BNWLA. The BNWLA is a lawyer's organization that works with social victims or the victims of crime or abuse who cannot go back to their own homes because of personal and social dangers. These victims are forced to take refuge with the BNWLA because they have nowhere else to go. We are going to open a branch in Mirpur, where we are training three hundred girls from BNWLA.” While talking to Kaniz, I was introduced to an acid survivor named Shabana. I asked Shabana how she ended up here. She replied, “I am from Kurigram, I was married off when I was twelve years old by my family, when I didn't even understand what marriage was. The agreement was that even though I was married off at twelve, I would continue to live with my family till I was older. Only later would I move in with my husband and start living with his family. But they took me away earlier than was agreed. This started a conflict between the two families. Over time the conflict intensified, eventually reaching a point where my husband and his uncles threw acid at me. I was lucky because I managed to avert my face, so it did not burn. But the acid fell on most of my body, severely burning it. After this I was hospitalized and my husband ended up in jail.” “The time after my attack was terrible,” she added. “I could not make myself do anything. It was too hard. I was depressed and......

In What Ways Can the Representation of the Family in Nada Be Read as a Microcosm of Spanish Society in the Immediate Post-Civil War Era?

...Assessed Essay In what ways can the representation of the family in Nada be read as a microcosm of Spanish society in the immediate post-Civil War era? Carmén Laforet's first novel, “Nada” is set in the war torn city of 1940's Barcelona, and depicts the aspiration of a young woman arriving to the city. This protagonist, Andrea, has her dreams quickly shattered as she witnesses, from the shadows, the chaos and mental and physical torment within the house. The novel is loosely based on Laforet's own experiences, her circumstances are very similar to that of Andrea; in the novel Andrea expects to find joy and love within her grandparents house in Barcelona, as she lived there as a child, however her hopes of this are quickly shattered,“cuando yo era la única nieta pasé alli las temporadas más excitantes de mi vida infantíl...¿todo esto podíá estar tan lejano?” (p22) Even though, taken literally, the narrator is reminiscing over earlier, happier times spent in the house, it echoes memories of Spain in general before the Civil War. Laforet herself was born in Barcelona and both Andrea and Laforet moved away as children and returned during the early 1940's in their late teens to study at the University of Barcelona. From this, Laforet experienced the struggles of post-war Spanish society first hand and evidence of this pervades the novel, drawing a picture of the times, which are not only represented in the city, but almost metaphorically in the household in which the......

...manufacturers, many of which would be only too happy to buy in a ready-made engine). The transfer price represents a source of revenue to the SD, and a cost to the BD. Therefore, there is potential for inter-divisional conflict (or at least a need for inter-divisional negotiations) since the SD will want to maximize the transfer price while the BD will want to minimize it. When we are preparing the Profit and Loss Account of the company as a whole, the transfer price is neither a cost nor a revenue. The transfer price is not taken into account in the calculation of company profit, since it is simply the price attaching to an intra-company transaction. It is therefore reasonable to ask whether, from the company’s point of view, it really matters what level the transfer price is set at. The answer is that it matters a great deal. If the “wrong” transfer price is set, then this creates incentives for divisions to act in ways which are detrimental to the best interests of the company as a whole. In other words, suboptimal transfer pricing destroys goal congruence. This will be illustrated...
