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 in the human eye is on the left side of the eye. The fovea is the small, central region of the retina which contains only cones, and no rods. Because of this, optical activity at this site is greatest. This is also where our vision is the sharpest. The actual blind spot in the eyes of humans is created because the back of the eye, the retina, is full of sensor cells, also known as rods and cones. These sensor cells send out a signal through the axon, and the location of where these entire axons meet to form the optic nerve, doesn’t have any sensor cells. This creates a blind spot because the sensors can’t overlay the nerve bundle at that point on the retina. We also learned in our psychology class that octopi do not have a blind spot in their vision. This is because in vertebrate yes, the nerve fibers route before the retina, which blocks some light and create a blind spot where the fibers pass through the retina and out of the eye. However, in octopi eyes, the nerve…
we are actually mother and daughter.
I first met Veronica in the womb. From the start there would be more to our relationship than meets the eye. I had seen my youthful mother, prance around the kitchen trying to prepare dinner. Her normal ruckus of music was blasting loud throughout the house. She was wearing her signature pink scrubs pants and polka dot scrub shirt. I could tell she was on a mission and did not want to be disturbed. So being myself, I figured it would be the perfect time to…
“A Class Divided,” was an awesome documentary. It was about a 3rd grade teacher who did an experiment on discrimination on her students. She divided the class into two groups, the blue eyes and the brown eyes. Day one the blue eyes were the superior group, and day two the brown eyes were superior, the teacher also did the same experiment on an adult crowd.
This experiment challenges your mind and it makes you think about things other than yourself. It was a great experiment because…
“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.

Eye for an Eye
In his exploration of gun violence in America, the author of Doomsday Diaries, Aaron B. Powell states, “We need to take a harder look at what’s really going on. Stop trying to treat the symptoms and treat the cause of the problem. Maybe we should try a little to help these kids before they feel so cornered that they turn into monsters” (Powell, 2013). The awareness and anxiety about gun violence in the United States has heightened because of incidents in Tucson, Sanford, Aurora…

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…

Venture capitalists are engaged in providing a high rate of return to their investors for the associated risk. During the dot-com crash, venture capitalists invested many Internet companies that had questionable business models become public companies, even those companies had not been proven operationally. In addition, venture capitalists invested in too many Internet companies…

Payrolls plummeted, home values dove, and slumps were experienced in almost every sector of the economy. The administration of President Bush had agreed to provide federal loans to prop up the automobile industry and President-elect Obama inherited…
The Eyes of the Skin of Architecture
This book was written by Juhani Pallasmaa with regard to ‘Polemics’, on issues that were part of the architecture discourse of the time, i.e. 1995. It is also an extending of ideas expressed in an essay entitled “Architecture of the seven senses” published in 1994.
As suggested by the title, this piece of literature attempts to highlight the importance of sensory experience in architecture. It is indeed a response to what the author terms…
Are There Blind Spots in Our Eyes?
Our eyes are vital organs because they help us visualize our surroundings. But are our eyes perfect in seeing what’s right in front of us? Sadly I learned in our evolution, nature messed up at one point and gave us blind spots in our eyes. This project shows why we have these blind spots, how to discover them, and how big they are. I researched on how our eyes see things; why when one eye is closed, the other eye sometimes can’t see what’s in front…
