Specialized Courts

- Specialized Courts “Specialized courts differ from traditional courts in that they focus on one type of offense or offender. Usually the judge plays an intensive supervisory role. Other criminal justice components (e.g., probation) and social services agencies (e.g., drug treatment) are involved and collaborate closely in case processing.” (Office of Justice Programs [OJP], 2008). High statistical correlations between offenders may demonstrate a need or possibility of specialized courts. These courts focus on the underlying issues behind the offending and try to cure it at it’s roots (NIJ, 2008)....   [tags: Criminal Justice]

Division Between Neuropsychology and Personality Assessment.

- There is an Indian parable of six blind men who encounter different parts of a large elephant and are asked to describe what it is they are feeling. The man who grasps the trunk reports that he’s holding a snake; the next man, who is holding one of the large tusks, insists that it is a spear; another man, grasping one of the animal’s large legs, says that it is a tree.

Specialists are Not Overrated

- The speaker's contention that generalists are more important than specialists is, in some respect, a reflection of the current problems in our society. Specialists are clearly more preferred for very technical or highly specialized fields but, at the same time, the understanding of what we as human species are and where our evolution or the progress is directed does require much broader perspective. First let's acknowledge that specialists are not overrated and sometimes even greater specialization is required in some fields, such as medicine, scientific inquiry or sports....   [tags: specialists, generalists, philosophy, ]

Neural Pathway Specificity for Music Processing

- There are two conflicting theories in neuropsychology that attempt to explain music processing in the brain. In a recent review, Peretz and Zatorre (2005) argue that there is evidence that points to the existence of music-specific processing pathways in the brain. Alternatively, an earlier review by Peretz and Hyde (2003) suggests that the brain is not specialized for music, rather, it is specialized to process the fine and coarse acoustic cues related to music and speech. This paper will discuss an analysis of the evidence for both theories in order to determine which theory best accounts for the evidence to date....   [tags: neuropsychology, auditory disorder, speech]

Gene Expression in Eukaryotes

- Distinct characteristics are not only an end result of the DNA sequence but also of the cell’s internal system of expression orchestrated by different proteins and RNAs present at a given time. DNA encodes for many possible characteristics, but different types of RNA aided by specialized proteins sometimes with external signals express the needed genes. Control of gene expression is of vital importance for an eukaryote’s survival such as the ability of switching genes on/off in accordance with the changes in the environment (Campbell and Reece, 2008)....   [tags: DNA Sequence, Nucleotides]

Karl Marx and Labour Division

However, division of labour can be practical and engaging in ones labour can be satisfying.

In addition, in many tissues they serve as an initial repair system, dividing without limits to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to remain a stem cell or become a more specialised cell....   [tags: Ethics]

Depending on their specialized functions, cells may contain as few as five mitochondria or as much as 2000 of these organelles.
