Copyright infringement is no pretty piece of music, and even if it was, odds are it's not something outsourced on the public domain without rights granted by the copyright holder. In Brett Gaylor's "Rip: A Remix Manifesto", he stands as a web activist in an effort to dilute this barrier put up between producers and music aficionado's like you and I. The main protagonist along with the narrator is Girl Talk. Girl Talk creates "mashups" which range from a series of digital samples of other peoples music with the twist of his own flair and remix on the original pieces. A reoccurring trend throughout the movie with the use and publication of sampled remixes is that the artists allow the public domain to not only recreate and share the music, but the ability to price them at their own discretion.
Gaylor's overall theme and structure of his documentary, trail along this "Remixer's Manifesto". This would be the scene that epitomized the film by detailing what has come of the music industry beyond the studio and how copyright has influenced our resources on the public domain. The first step presented in the movie, "Culture always builds on the past", took us to a media literate era where the creative process shaped users into creators which aloud the change of folk-art into future media through remix. However, our culture that was remixed, wasn't rightfully ours. The second step in the manifesto, "The past always tries to control the future", led us into the archives of intellectual property. A scene in the movie depicts the separation of corporations whom own this "intellectual property", otherwise known as the "copyRIGHT", and public domain users who believe in the freedom of sharing music, otherwise known as the "copyLEFT". It's obvious which side the filmmaker stands on but does that create a fully copyLEFT biased film? Gaylor took the stance on both…...

It introduces several new ideas, including comments, declarations, variables, arithmetic expressions, loops , and formatted output. #include /* print Fahrenheit−Celsius table for fahr = 0, 20, ..., 300 */ main() { int fahr, celsius; int lower, upper, step; lower = 0; upper = 300; step = 20; /* lower limit of temperature scale */ /* upper limit */ /* step size */ fahr = lower; while (fahr <= upper) { celsius = 5 * (fahr−32) / 9; printf("%d\t%d\n", fahr, celsius); fahr = fahr + step; } } The two lines /* print Fahrenheit−Celsius table for fahr = 0, 20, ..., 300 */ are a comment, which in this case explains briefly what the program does. Any characters between /* and */ are ignored by the compiler; they may be used freely to make a program easier to understand. Comments may appear anywhere where a blank, tab or newline can. In C, all variables must be declared before they are used, usually at the beginning of the function before any executable statements. A declaration announces the properties of variables; it consists of a name and a list of variables, such as int fahr, celsius; int lower, upper, step; The type int means that the variables listed are integers; by contrast with float, which means floating point, i.e., numbers that may have a fractional part. The range of both int and float depends on the machine you are using; 16−bits ints, which lie between......

...underlying cell C11 is: = SUMPRODUCT(B3:C4,B8:C9) Adults Children Total Ticket Revenue Page 4 of 37 A useful fact about the SUMPRODUCT function is that one can arithmetically transform the arrays before the multiplication is performed. This transformation can be done directly within the SUMPRODUCT function as opposed to creating new calculations on the spreadsheet. Example 3: A weatherman records the noontime temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit) for 50 consecutive summer days in a particular city. The frequency for each temperature is shown in the spreadsheet below. Determine the average temperature in degrees Celsius across the 50 days. A 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 B Days 1 2 4 5 5 4 8 6 4 3 5 2 1 50 24.7333 C Temp (Fahr) 66 68 70 71 72 74 77 78 79 81 84 88 94 The formula underlying cell C18 is: = SUMPRODUCT(B2:B14/B16, 5/9*(C2:C14-32)) Notice that, in the first array within the SUMPRODUCT function, each number of days is divided by 50 to find the proportionate frequency. In the second array temperature is being converted from Fahrenheit to Celsius via the formula: Celsius = 5/9 * (Fahrenheit – 32) After both arrays have been appropriately transformed, the SUMPRODUCT delivers the average temperature, expressed in Celsius degrees. Total Average in Celsius • MAX( … ) and MIN( … ) The MAX and MIN functions return the largest and smallest numbers (respectively) among the numbers or arrays specified within the parentheses.

...determines how others react to attempts at dominance. If this line of reasoning is correct, formal authority should not moderate the effect of subjective power on attempts at dominating but should only moderate the effect of subjective power on team dynamics that require team interaction to emerge, such as talking, communications, and performance. Because autocratic style represents an individual’s unilateral adoption of a dominating style rather than emergent behavior that involves the consent of all team members, we would not expect to see an interaction between subjective power and formal authority on autocratic style but rather a main effect of subjective power. To test this expectation, we used the measure developed by Chen, Eberly, Chiang, Fahr, and Cheng (in press) to assess autocratic leadership behaviors. Team members were asked to evaluate the 2013 Tost, Gino, and Larrick 1475 individuals who engaged in the writing task (whether or not they were labeled “leader”) on this measure. This measure includes items that assess perceptions of an individual’s leadership behavior and intentions that are not contingent on other team members’ cooperation and consent (e.g., “This team member behaved in a commanding fashion” and “This team member seemed to want to exercise discipline over others”). We averaged the items from the scale into a single score ( .69 for member 1, and .75 for member 2). Because team members achieved good interrater reliability (ICC1 .56,......

Here is a sample program to convert a Fahrenheit temperature to a Celsius temperature: inp = raw_input('Enter Fahrenheit Temperature:') fahr = float(inp) cel = (fahr - 32.0) * 5.0 / 9.0 print cel If we execute this code and give it invalid input, it simply fails with an unfriendly error message: python fahren.py Enter Fahrenheit Temperature:72 22.2222222222 python fahren.py Enter Fahrenheit Temperature:fred Traceback (most recent call last): File "fahren.py", line 2, in fahr = float(inp) ValueError: invalid literal for float(): fred There is a conditional execution structure built into Python to handle these types of expected and unexpected errors called “try / except”. The idea of try and except is that you know that some sequence of instruction(s) may have a problem and you want to add some statements to be executed if an error occurs. These extra statements (the except block) are ignored if there is no error. You can think of the try and except feature in Python as an “insurance policy” on a sequence of statements. We can rewrite our temperature converter as follows: 3.8. Short circuit evaluation of logical expressions 37 inp = raw_input('Enter Fahrenheit Temperature:') try: fahr = float(inp) cel = (fahr - 32.0) * 5.0 / 9.0 print cel except: print 'Please enter a number' Python starts by executing the sequence of statements in the try block.

Nach einer Weile wurde der Fluß plötzlich sehr breit und sah fast wie ein See aus. Verwundert beobachteten die Kinder, wie die Ufer immer weiter zurückwichen. „Wenn der Fluß noch breiter wird, können wir bald kein Land mehr sehen“, sagte Dina. Lucy sah sich erstaunt nach allen Seiten um. „Jack, sind wir — etwa — auf dem Meer?“ Alle lachten sie aus. Sogar Tala lächelte. Lucy errötete, und Jack klopfte ihr auf den Rücken. „Es sieht tatsächlich so aus, als seien wir auf dem Meer. Gewiß wird der Fluß 124 bald wieder schmäler. Vielleicht ist das Wasser hier sehr flach, so daß es sich mehr ausgebreitet hat.“ „Fahr lieber an einem Ufer entlang, Tala!“ rief Philipp. „Sonst verlieren wir die Richtung.“ „Schade, daß wir nicht die Karte vom Fluß hier haben!“ meinte Jack. „Darauf war jedes kleinste Dorf zu finden. Wir hätten nachsehen können, wo Wooti liegt und wann der Fluß wieder schmäler wird.“ Tala steuerte das Boot ans linke Ufer. Von dem anderen Flußufer war nun überhaupt nichts mehr zu sehen.

How Therapists Deal with Painful Memories of Post – Traumatic Stress Disorder Victims

...compared to the prefrontal cortex of patients not experiencing bouts of PTSD, the hippocampus also experience neuronal damage. The amygdale involves the formation of emotions and the memories that caused the emotional event, especially emotions and memories associated with fear (Newton, 2009). Brain imaging studies show high activity in the amygdale works when people experience anxiety, stress or phobias (Newton, 2009). Increased activity in the amygdale from sufferers of PTSD causes a production of intense anxiety symptoms. The first study examining long term changes in hippocampus volume determined that there is no difference in total brain in grey or white matter during PTSD (Jatzko, Rothenhofer, Schmitt, Gaser, Demirakca, Weber – Fahr, Wessa, Magnotta & Braus, 2006). The study researched fifteen patients who were traumatized at an air show in 1988 their trauma came from witnessing a plane crash. The study used fifteen PTSD victims as well as fifteen controlled person. Their results showed no difference in grey or white brain matter between the patients and controlled persons. Neuroendocrinology Aspect PTSD symptoms may arise when a traumatic event causes a reaction to the adrenaline response. This creates deep neurological patterns in the brain. These patterns may stay with a person long after the event happens. This situation makes a person hyper- responsive to fearful situations. PTSD shows a biochemical change in the brain as well as in PTSD too that is......
