Daniel didn’t really speak to anyone except his own siblings unless I asked him a question. The girls on the other hand were very talkative but they mostly only talked about whatever was happening directly in front of them. I was only able to ask Daniel where he would put his third eye but his answer was very interesting. He said that his third eye would be on the back of his head so he could see behind himself. When I did the test with the two cups holding the same amount of water, Sawyer thought the bigger cup had more water even though she saw that they were the same before I poured one into the bigger glass. Erika and Madison both answered correctly that the cups had the same amount still. Daniel’s answer was strange but I think it was my fault in how I performed the test. He answered that the smaller glass had ...

...ht more water was in that one. So far Daniel has showed that he is more developed cognitively so I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt here. Sawyer was the only one in group 2 who got answered incorrectly and thought the amount of water changed because it looked bigger. Overall, it seems that group 2 is mostly in the concrete operational stage as they were able to understand that the amount of liquid stayed the same even as it moved to a bigger glass.
The most profound thing that I noticed between the two groups is that the older group was far more social and also more thoughtful in the games they played and the questions that I asked them. The younger group was more prone to playing individually. I also noticed that boys enjoyed playing with the building blocks and trains more than the girls did. The girls seemed to prefer playing sport games together.

Summary of Clock Speed: Winning Industry Control in the Age of Temporary Advantage by Charles H. Fine
- Summary of Clock Speed: Winning Industry Control in the Age of Temporary Advantage by Charles H. Fine Introduction In order to conduct a scientific study, you set a baseline then introduce changes in order to understand the impact of the change. Unfortunately, the rate of change, or clock speed, in many studies (human evolution as an example) is too slow for one person to have time to introduce multiple changes and measure the results. Biologists have found by studying fruit flies (a rapid clock speed with a life span of days rather than years), they can reach conclusions faster by studying multiple life spans in a short amount of time....

- A Crazy Man at Best: A Summary of “Death of a Salesman” Authors write with a purpose, sometimes this purpose is hidden and political, while sometimes it challenges the norm, while yet other times they write just to tell a moving story. In the end, however, all writers have the same goal: to produce a work that causes their readers to think about the plot and use their own mind to decipher the meaning.

- There is nothing but black all around the forest. Only the stars shine bright as the dark trees and path calls forth the treacherous Indians and shadows of the night. Bushes close behind as mysterious sounds race underfoot. There is even a smidge of black in the good man’s heart, whose owner is walking through the sea of dark with an equally, if not more, serpent-like staff carrying dark companion. This respectable man is Young Goodman Brown, as portrayed in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story “Young Goodman Brown”.... [tags: A Summary]

- She said, “I will save you!” and she hurled the water at the Witch. Dorothy then trips on a silver nail, on the wooden floor. She falls faintly and passes out. Dorothy has a concussion and her soul detaches. The flying water lands on the Witch and her soul ends up with Dorothy’s soul in limbo. An arena of familiar faces before the pale darkness; they move in the obscurity like ghouls. There is Mama, looking for Turtle Heart; there is Nessarose, authoritative and lifeless as harden wood. There is Papa, lost in his duplicate, looking for himself in the faces of the suspicious agnosticism.... [tags: Summary]

- Mr. Adult Let me preface this by saying, at this current moment in time, I don’t think I will ever get married, let alone start a family. This isn’t meant to be depressive or a spit in the eye of romanticism, rather I can’t envision that future for myself. This is an odd fact considering the fact I was raised in a home many would consider perfect. I would disagree with this statement. I would disagree for one reason: That, if it had in fact been perfect, I wouldn’t have learned as much as I have.... [tags: Marriage, Divorce, Love, Family]
