- ... Without changing this poorly written amendment, schools are being burdened with marijuana related problems. Legalizing marijuana to allow adults to purchase it for recreational use is being directly correlated to an increase of drug use in Colorado’s middle and high schools. Many school and police officials feel that this rise is due to the fact that marijuana is no longer illegal. “’We have seen a sharp rise in drug-related disciplinary actions which anecdotally, from credible sources, is being attributed to the changing social norms surrounding marijuana,’ said Janelle Krueger” (Lofholm)....   [tags: marijuana, youth, drugs, minds]

An Explication of Shakespeare’s “Let me not to the marriage of true minds”

- An Explication of Shakespeare’s “Let me not to the marriage of true minds” The sonnet begins with the poet making a declaration of his belief in love. In line one he refers to a “marriage of true minds” (1). The choice of the word “true” here is interesting as it has many possible meanings. Did he intend for us to think of true as meaning correct, exact, or precise. These are not the meanings that come to mind when we talk about love. In keeping with the theme of love we see that the meaning of true here is of the genuine, pure, and honest variety....   [tags: Shakespearean Literature]

Artificial Inteligence in John Searle’s paper: Minds, Brains, and Programs

- Searle’s paper, “Minds, Brains, and Programs”, was originally published in Behavioral and Brain Sciences in 1980. It has become one of modern philosophy’s (and broadly, cognitive science’s) most disputed and discussed pieces due to the nature of the argument presented in the paper. In said paper, John Searle sought, or should I say, seeks, to dispute the claim that artificial intelligence in the form of computers and programs do, or at the most basic level, could (one day), think for their synthetic selves; essentially it’s a refutation of the idea that computers or programs can actually “understand” in the same way that a human can....   [tags: Robots, Computers, Programs]

Idle Minds and Wagging Tongues: Conversation in Anna Karenina

With the relationship between Kitty and Levin serving as Tolstoy’s model for a strong and successful love, it appears odd that such a relationship should be founded on silence, and in such sharp contrast to the chatter of Society surrounding the couple at the party....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Stimulation and Open Minds For Learning

- Like birds need to learn how to fly and predators learn how to hunt, we humans too need to go through a cornucopia of learning processes. Learning is a boundless and essential part of life. When we learn from our mistakes it’s considered to be a practical learning style and when we go to a lecture to listen, take notes and memorize information, we use a different learning approach. The purpose is always the same, to understand or use something new, but the way to get there is tortuous.
