I. Introduction
The first time you will hear the word Circadian Rhythm, you will be dreary because you have no idea on what it is about, but because of my drastic intention I will gather more ideas about my topic. Doubtless, I am sure I will make it easier to work with it. One question was bothering me and makes me persevere on doing this Research Paper. “Is it entrainable or not?”, one question with different ideas and information’s sticking with it. No specific and particular reviews I need to provide about it, I just need to gather information by means of researching just to know if Circadian Rhythm is entrainable or not. Although the process is not easy, as people who have suffered from a jetlag, because the more time you did not sleep, the more you will suffer Circadian Rhythm. Sleep and waking, for instance, occur naturally to the beat of an internal pacemaker, which works on a cycle of about twenty-four-hours.
My purpose on making and researching is to have broad ideas and I need to answer the question bothering me if it is entrainale or not. I need to defend my title against myself to be proudly to present it and defend it easily.In my title, I used the questioning type because I want to know if Circadian Rhythm is truly entrainable or not. Y abstract focuses on the summary of my entire research paper and what are my goals and objectives on making this research. In listing the methods and procedures, my goal is to give the reader sufficient information to be able to understand it clearly. I have also results to give some description and guide to help the reader recognize my important points. Also the written conclusions were I stated what I’ve learned and proved. Lastly, in the bibliography I listed different references I used in my Research Paper to gather more informations.

...many generations before his own birth. Time moves 'backward' rather than 'forward'; and people set their minds not on future things, but chiefly on what has taken place. Time has therefore to be experienced in order to make sense or to become real (Mbiti 1999, 16-17) 3. Time reckoning and chronology Africans reckon or divide time for specific and concrete purpose. It is always done in connection with events, and for that reason, people cannot and do not reckon time in the vacuum. To the Africans time is not an abstract phenomenon which is reckoned for its sake but is meaningful at the point of the event and not at the mathematical moment. According to Pierre Bourdieu’s, African time has no beginning and no end. Africans observed a rythm of social life, a calendar of feasts, a cycle of past times and an annual cycle of agricultural tasks that were all embodied in a single overiding. A good example is in the Bantu- Kongo,. For the Kongo, time is both absract and concrete. At the absract level, time has no beginning and no end, it exists on its own and flows by itself on its own accord. At the concrete level it is the dunga(events) that make time perceptible providing un ending flow of time with specific events of periods of time. The traditional African counts time daily and yearly by a series of rhythmic events. The day is divided into, grazing time, resting time, drinking time, home returning time and evening milking time. The months are marked by the events in the......

Art Review

...When we hear the word comic book or graphic novel, we tend to think of the small paper books we remember buying when we were children featuring action heroes like Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, or Ironman. Installation art is surely not something that generally pops into our mind when we hear those words, but one artist proved that comics can be read and displayed in more ways than one. Kerry James Marshall incorporated his own comic strip into a site specific installation work that he presented covering the glass panels of the display cases in a museum. He titled this piece Rythm Mastr, produced in 1999-2000 the 20 (17 X 11 inch) double page, two-sided printed newspaper comics where made using a photocopy of ink drawing and design marker on paper. This piece is a representational narrative that Marshall uses to try and bridge the gap between modern art and African art. Throughout the comic strip there are many visual elements incorporated into the work, I will point out a few of these. One of the first visual elements that I noticed was the artist’s use of implied time and motion, which is defined as “non-moving image(s) that shows movement through the attributed present in the image.” For example take the stances of the figures and superheroes in the comic strip, each one has its own individual way of showing movement, whether it is the front foot being lifted off the ground, or the arms coming out from the figures sides as it is about to step forward. The artist......

Definition from dictionaries show that cliche is a derogatory term and it's necessary to avoid everything that may be called by that name. The thing is that most of the widely recorded word combinations adopted in the language are unjustly classified as cliches. Cliches are unregistered in dictionaries. Phraseological units are, and they occur in different styles (belles-lettres, newspaper, official documents). Cliche can be part and parcel of other stylistic devices (sustained metaphor, complex figurative images). Proverbs and sayings They are collected in special dictionaries. Features: rhyme, rythm, alliteration. Proverbs are brief statements, showing in condenced form the accumulated life experience of the community serving as a conventional phraseological symbols for abstract ideas. Usually image-bearing, complete sentences, logically arranged. A saying stands for the notion and has a nominative function [to add fuel to fire - to scold sb.]. If issued approprietely, proverbs and sayings will never use their freshness and vigour. Proverbs and sayings can be regarded as expressive means of the literature; emotionally coloured and difficult. They are usually built on some image. When the proverb is used in unaltered form, it is an expressive means. When in a modified variant assumes one of the features of a stylistic device.......

Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior of their lives. Therefore they expect that their child is cooperative and following the sets of rules and stay in its boundaries. For chinese parents a succesful upbringing of a child involves good academics in school, so that they are well prepared with a bright future ahead of them, even if they have to take it to it the absolute extreme. In the article we learn about Amy’s personal experience with her own daughter Lulu, which she tries to raise by the chinese norms. Amy wanted her daughter Lulu to learn a piece on the piano called ‘’The Little White Donky’’ which she had put a lot of effort and work into. After a week of nonstop practice Lulu could still not do it, it was very difficult because she had to play two different rythms with each hand. At a point Lulu had given up and stomped off, even though Amy ordered her to get back to the piano, which Lulu refused. Amy then threatened to give her dollhouse away for salvation, and even denying her lunch and dinner. It turned out so extreme, she kept pushing Lulu and made her practice through dinner and into the night, not even allowing her to go to the bathroom or get any water. This is where Amy started to doubt herself and her methods. But then Lulu suddenly started to play it right, bit by bit, and Amy gained her intuition back. Eventhough Lulu was threatened, not allowed food or water and forced to practice through dinner and into the night, she was suprisingly very happy that day, having learned something......

Circadian Rythms

...States of Consciousness: Sleep Deprivation States of Consciousness: Sleep Deprivation Michelle Rogers ITT Technical Institute Circadian rhythms are regular changes in mental and physical characteristics that occur in the course of a day (circadian is Latin for "around a day"). Most circadian rhythms are controlled by the body's biological "clock." This clock, called the suprachiasmatic nucleus or SCN, a pair of pinhead-sized brain structures that together contain about 20,000 neurons. The SCN rests in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, just above the point where the optic nerves cross. Light that reaches photoreceptors in the retina (tissue at the back of the eye) creates signals that travel along the optic nerve to the SCN. Signals from the SCN travel to several brain regions, including the pineal gland, which responds to light-induced signals by switching off production of the hormone melatonin. The body's level of melatonin normally increases after darkness falls, making people feel drowsy. The SCN is synchronized with the sleep/wake cycle, including body temperature, hormone secretion, urine production, and changes in blood pressure. Sunlight or other bright lights can reset the SCN, our biological cycles normally follow the 24-hour cycle of the sun, rather than our innate cycle. Circadian rhythms can be affected to some degree by almost any kind of external time cue, such as the beeping of your alarm clock, the clatter of a garbage truck, or the......

Rapid Fire Fulfillment

...Rapid Fire Fulfillment: Background David Emme Muhlenberg College Abstract Zara developed three strategies to control the whole supply chain. These are closing the communication loop, stick to a rhythm, and leverage your assets. In doing this, Zara is able to coordinate across the supply chain to maintain a fast replenishment and meet capacity. The chocolate candy industry can benefit from buying the source of their supply and controlling its transport. Keywords. Capacity, align, supply chain, rythm To understand how Amancio Ortega developed rapid fire fulfillment with Zara’s is to understand first principles. Ortega’s first principal came out of desperation. Upon cancellation of a big lingerie order by a German wholesaler, Ortega had to find a way to sell his inventory. His solution, open a shop near his factory. This was not only the birth of Zara but also the Genesis of his principal to run his company: open a store close to the factory and be personally involved. This gave rise to, “you need to have five fingers touching the factory and five touching the customer.” (Ferdows, Lewis, & Machucha, 2004) This allowed Ortega to develop a responsive supply chain that designs, produces, delivers, and displays a new garment on the rack within fifteen days. Out of this first principle there are three identifiable actions Zara’s has taken to develop a proficient supply chain. They are closing the communication loop, stick to a rhythm across the supply......

File Idea of Progress

...I’m going to talk about the idea of progress. First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion : the idea of progress is the theory that the different advances in technology, science, and social organization can produce an improvement in the human condition. That is, people can become happier in terms of quality of life (social progress) through economic development (modernization) and the application of science and technology (scientific progress). Progress implies change and evolution and throughout history most advances have been positive. However the rythm of progress seems to have accelerated over the last few decades and the technological breakthrough and scientific developments are causing some people to question this progress. Should we fear progress ? To answer this question I will present three documents. The first document I have choosen is an excerpt from “O brave new world” by Aldous Huxley. O brave new world is a dystopian novel which anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleeplearning, psychological manipulation and classical conditioning that combine profoundly to change society. The extract is about reproductive technology. The D.H.C (Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning) is talking about the Bokanovsky’s Progress to a group of students. Humans grow in incubators. Before this progress, they only grew one by one in incubator but with a bokanovskyfied egg it’s possible to make 96 humans grow. Later in the excerpt......

...If only she was younger, she would want to seduce him. Suddenly she felt ashamed for being old and ugly. He observed her with the side of his eyes. He insisted to send her to her house instead of dropping her at the town side. She opened the car door, released the dog, turned back to thank him. Her eyes met his. His deep dark eyes were staring straight into hers. They were deep and full of emotion. She knew what they meant. “Can I go in?” he asked. It surprised her. Her brain went spinning in high-speed. Finally, in the attempt to keep her composure, she got off the car leaving the door open and said “It’s up to you.” She climbed the steps to her house at second storey. Each step seemed to take forever. Her heart beat rapidly with awful rythm. She could not feel her feet. She felt choke. She felt as if she was going to die. “So this is what the dream means. This overwelming feeling, the choking feeling, the heart beat that I thought was heart attack. So this is what it means.” FIRST TIME TO LIVE.
