Connecting the Dots If you walk down a busy street most heads are looking downward, and they aren’t looking at their shoes; they’re looking at their phones. With the phones like the iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy 4 people are more connected today than ever. Through networking and social media sites like Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram images and thoughts are being spread “at the speed of data 1 ”. In Rachel Kadish’s “Who Is This Man, and Why Is He Screaming?” she talks about her personal experience with networking. Kadish’s cousin Noam was an ambitious photographer with an idea. He had witnessed himself yawning in the mirror and thought the action would make a good picture. Once done shooting, Noam showed the photo to his friends and posted it on a social media sight known as Flickr. He soon forgot about the photo, but a year later the memory resurfaced. A co-worker who was wondering why he hadn’t mentioned that he had licensed T-shirts with the self-portrait printed onto them. Noam had no idea what she was talking about, and that’s where it began. Later on Noam found out that his photograph of his own screaming face was being used in everything from rock concerts to anti-government protests in Iran. Noam’s situation is a phenomenal example of the effects networking has on a person’s life. A shy boy for Jerusalem who seldom talked had made himself a life, selling merchandise with the dubbed “Stolen Scream 2 ” and his photography business growing at a rapid pace. While the effect of networking had relatively positive ramifications on his life, other instances have proven to have no so positive outcomes. In September of 2013 a dating site in Canada used a picture of Rehteah Parsons in an ad. The site, ionechat.com, used the pictures with the heading “Find Love in Canada.” The only problem, Rehteah was not only an underage high school student but had committed suicide months before the ad was released 3. This picture not only was an illegal use of the picture of the teen but reopened old wounds of her death in her circle of friends and family. Although the site did take the ad down and eventually was shut down, it still caused a good bit of harm. Although networking has negative and positive effects on some people’s lives, others simply don’t…

This week in psychology we discovered that humans have blind spots. We tested this by drawing a dot on a note card and a different object to the right of the dot. Then we closed our left eye and stared at the dot while we slowly moved the card away from our eyes. About 4-6 inches away from your face it will seem as if the object to the right of the dot has disappeared, when in fact it has not, it just appears so. The object itself is way to the right of the fovea, but the physical blind spot…
“sale” people and the name but not an actual tangible item, where as in the automotive industry marketing is to appeal to a specific personality type and sale an actual vehicle.

Making Connections with Graphene, an Emerging 2D Nanomaterial
Graphene is composed of a one atom thick layer of sp2 hybridized carbons arranged like a honeycomb lattice (Fuchs, 2008) (See Figure. 1). For a long time, scientists knew of its existence but didn’t know how to isolate it from graphite. In 2004, Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov succeeded in isolating graphene by studying the material removed from graphite with adhesive…
Is it possible for the mind and body to interact if the mind is not if the mind is doesn’t occupy any space in the physical world? There is always a constant argument of the link between the mind and body. I feel that there is an unexplainable connection between brain and body.
