In ENG 61 class, the professor introduced three multi-tasking activities. The first one called the Stroop Test required students to read a series of words in quick succession and shout out the names of the colors. I read the word instead of the color, which caused me to be confused by trying to do two tasks at once. It was difficult in this particular test because I wanted to read the word not the color. I believe this is why the test was difficult for me to get a grasp on.
It strikes again , that feeling of anxiety that puts your body into survival mode . There are many names to describe it . Just as there are many names to describe the formidable author of children’s books . The author being known most popularly as R. L. Stine .
The Stroop effect is demonstrated by the reaction time to determine a color when the color is printed in a different color’s name. Participants respond slower or make more errors when the meaning of the word is incongruent with the color of the word. Despite knowing the meaning of the word, participants showed incapability of ignoring the stimulus attribute. This reflects a clear instance of semantic interference and an unfathomed failure of selective attention (Stroop, 1935).
Attention is thought to be selective-focused on one subject at a time. Traditionally, it has been assumed that automatic processing is involuntary, it does not require attention, and is relatively fast; whereas, controlled processing is voluntary, does require attention, and is relatively slow. We can conclude from this that the more we repeat a certain material or tasks the more it becomes automatic and effortless to us.
The English STAAR test was by far the most stressful exam that I’ve ever taken in my life. I passed every part of the test except reading. I’ve never been a
Reading Comprehension: Answer questions after reading a variety if stimuli, e.g., note, public sign, poster, e-mail, letter, story, advertisement, article, brochure.
The Implicit Tests that I chose were Weight and Weapons. Both tests are designed to show one’s subconscious and conscious feelings regarding stereotypes and measure them to the overall results of all that took the same test.
“Why do we take the STAAR test?” You will probably hear any kid in texas ask that question. There are a lot of reasons why we should or shouldn’t take the STAAR test, but one of the most obvious reasons that we shouldn’t is test anxiety.
On Thursday, July 14, 2016, at approximately 0847 hours, Patrolman David Stamets had a vehicle stopped on the 100 block of East Oak Street. Immediately after Stamets stopped the vehicle Your Affiant positioned his vehicle on the 100 block of South White Street near the Oak Street intersection facing southbound. When exiting my vehicle your Affiant observed a gold Pontiac sedan accelerating northbound on South White Street at an unsafe speed towards Stamets and your Affiant's location.
In July 2015, I received a note and pictures from Lyons Township High School graduate Nick Winner, who wanted to let us know how appreciative he was of receiving the Ken Straube Fire Science Scholarship and how he was applying the award. I was so taken by his thoughtfulness and impressed with what he was doing, that it got us thinking; how can we help and honor the Straube Family for their generosity and how can we show the ‘results’ of Ken Straube’s love and devotion to the fire service and our department. We hope you enjoy!

Squamish is one of those place that never stops offering tourists amazing destinations and activities. One of the most popular of all Squamish activities is rock climbing around the "Stawamus Chief." Getting the most out of this particular activity requires careful preparation and execution.
The second letter was written by a third party and was sent on June 3, 1941 to Nathan Straus. This letter was sent as a response to the “Frank-matter” because Straus had been making attempts in government to help provide Frank and his family the proper paperwork in order to safely emigrate out of the Netherlands. After Straus had received Frank’s letter, Straus had been trying his best to influence the right people in the United States government so Frank could leave the Netherlands. The letter begins by addressing that Mrs. Straus and this third party have talked over the phone and have discussed Frank’s letter to Strauss. Once receiving the letter from Frank, both Straus and his wife Helen became concerned for the Frank family’s safety
While filling out the Common Application this fall, I was shocked that so many colleges asked for preferred pronouns and gender identity. I asked my sister, who had applied to college only three years earlier, if these questions had been included on her applications and she said, “Not at all.” In itself, this change is rather irrelevant; it does no harm. However, it shows that, when pressured, colleges quickly adapt to new, politically correct methods. Grant Strobl, a student at the University of Michigan, responded to his college’s request for preferred pronouns in a brilliantly satirical way: he said his pronoun of choice was His Majesty. “If they want me to be tolerant of their pronouns, they have to be tolerant to my new title,” said Strobl.
I had seen Drew Struzan’s artwork my entire life without ever realizing it. The iconic movie posters, that commonly are displayed on the front of the movie cover, are easily recognized by most Americans. Classic movies, such as Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Harry Potter, Hook, and Star Wars have all had their covers graced by the iconic art of Drew Struzan. I was struck in awe as I came to the realization that someone had actually drawn all of these realistic images that had been a part of my entire life. I had never thought about who made all of the drawings to fill up promotional posters, or even who may have designed the movie itself. As I watched clips of him drawing the posters, I was amazed at his ability to bring the characters
Next, on week two, those students assigned to the FTF mode were called upon; as the process of supervising students was demanding, the researcher allocated just two groups of dyads for each session; in other word, each mode was held in four sessions during a week for 2 hours. Likewise, those assigned to start with the SCMC mode were called upon on week three. It is also important to mention that, there was no time period between task one and two.
