Taxonomy and systematics[edit]
Two subspecies are universally accepted:[1] * Congo African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus erithacus):
This is the nominate subspecies, larger than the Timneh at about 33 cm (13 in) long, with light-grey feathers, cherry-red tails, and an all-black beak.[1] Immature birds of this subspecies have tails with a darker, duller red towards the tip (Juniper and Parr 1999) until their first moult, which occurs by 18 months of age. These birds also initially have grey irises, which change to a pale yellow colour by the time the bird is a year old. The Congo Grey Parrot is found on the islands of Príncipe and Bioko, and is distributed from southeastern Ivory Coast to western Kenya, northwest Tanzania, southern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and northern Angola. In aviculture, it is often called a "CAG". * Timneh African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus timneh, or Psittacus timneh):
The Timneh African Grey Parrot is slightly smaller in size than the Congo, but intelligence and talking ability remain comparable. They can range from about 22–28 cm in total length, and are considered a medium size parrot. The Timneh has a darker charcoal grey colouring, a darker maroon tail, and a light, horn-coloured area to part of the upper mandible. Timneh parrots are endemic to the western parts of the moist Upper Guinea forests and bordering savannas of West Africa from Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, and southern Mali east to at least 70 km (43 mi) east of the Bandama River in Ivory Coast. It is often called a "TAG". As pets, Timnehs usually begin learning to speak earlier than Congos as they mature slightly earlier. The Timneh parrot also has a reputation of being less nervous around strangers and novel situations than the Congo, but whether this is true or not is still debated. In 2012,…...

Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes it's just unavoidable. Sometimes that's the only thing left." -Meredith Grey "You never know the biggest day of your life is the biggest day. Not until it's happening. You don't recognize the biggest day of your life, not until you're right in the middle of it. The day you commit to something or someone. The day you get your heart broken. The day you meet your soul mate. The day you realize there's not enough time, because you wanna live forever. Those are the biggest days. The perfect days." -Isobel "Izzie" Stevens "Change, we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind.

Grey Goo

...GREY GOO Nanotechnologies run amuck? Grey Goo was first termed back in 1986 by Eric Drexler. “Engines of Creation” is a term that denotes a technological process by which nanorobots self-replicate. In order to self-replicate they require raw materials and those raw materials are found all around us, the resulting process creates grey goo(or a nanobot swarm). The nightmare scenario is that we would create a runaway self-replicating machine that would turn into a plague and destroy all life, turning everything into Grey Goo.(Jones,2004) PUBLIC PERCEPTION AND ACCEPTANCE Change is not always accepted nor is it quick to enter the market. So it has been with the acceptance of Nanotechnology. Genetically modified (GM) foods are one such advancement that has had problems entering the world’s food markets, with some countries outright banning the sale of GM foods. Early education showing future, tangible benefits will be key in the wholesale acceptance of these new technologies. It will be the lack of these tangible benefits that will keep the public hesitant in accepting nanotechnology. (Siegrist,2009) Even though for the most part the US has been accepting of nanotechnology much of Europe has been contained in their acceptance. Most of the reasons behind this division of acceptance were primarily due to the lack of knowledge or the understanding of technology behind nano and the inherent risk that might be associated with it. Still citizens hope that nanomedicine will live up to......

Allan Grey

...Allan Grey JQ Excelsior Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire and Kazan’s film adaptation shared not only the same characters, but also the same themes, reactions and other literary techniques Williams had created throughout his play. However, for Elia Kazan to have produced the film, some scenes were eliminated or changed to fit what was known as the Hay’s Code. One of the scenes that was not so much vital to the play, was when Blanche DuBois explains to Mitch about her ex-husband. Allan Grey, Blanche’s ex husband, was found in bed with another man and by no other than his wife, Blanche herself. In the play both Blanche and Allan pretended that nothing happened after that night. Allan was probably being tortured and was already fragile as Blanche describes him, “There was something different about the boy, a nervousness, a softness and tenderness which wasn’t like a man’s, although he wasn’t the least bit effeminate looking- still- that thing was there…” (Williams 95). That along with a deadly silence put upon him was more than Allan could bare. After, one night, they all three went out and were conveniently drunk. In the middle of dancing at a casino, Blanche had brought up what had happened. She expressed herself about Allan’s doings and how she felt about them to him. Allan had then ran out on her and a bit after, a shot was heard. This was told to our readers towards the end of scene six of Williams play. Blanche had not taken into consideration the way Allan was......

African

...February 2015 African Americans and the word Nigger African Americans are God’s greatest creation. God said himself that he gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. According to the short film “War for your Soul” this nation needed the strength, wisdom and abilities of African Americans to build the America we have today. The most powerful nation in the world. See what people fail to realize is that America was built on the backs of African Americans. Most of America is founded and created by African Americans but, it was taken away from them by the white people. Now white people are considered to be the founders and rulers of this land when truly the African Americans were the first Queens and Kings. The whites stripped African Americans from everything they built and owned. The Master of Darkness from “War on your Soul” claims he even tore their families apart by separating their children and selling them to different slave owners. Changed the name of African Americans to degrade and used racial slurs like calling them the word “Nigger.” A nigger is below everyone on the face of the planet close to being a dog says Master of Darkness from “War on your soul.” These tactics were used to break the spirits of African American slaves so they would feel belittled and worthless. African Americans could always count on the mercy of God. To withstand the pressures of time. God carried them through the decades of the 30s, 40s, and 50s helping African Americans......

Grey Album

...In 2004, one of the most notorious albums was made, The Grey Album. It consisted of Jay-Z’s Black Album and The Beatle’s White Album. DJ Danger Mouse created this mash-up album without the permission of Jay-Z or The Beatles. The album included acapellas and instrumentals from both of the albums. As of result of this, recording company EMI filed a cease-and-desist letter to Danger Mouse as he started to distribute and sell the album. A fellow music group by the name of Negativland released a song with the name U2 on the front cover. Negativland sampled the song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking for” and outtakes from the host of American Top 40, Casey Kasem. Negativland never received permission to use any of U2’s work. As soon as Negativland released the album for retail, recording company Island Records and Warner-Chappell Music filed a lawsuit against Negativland and their record company. The lawsuit ended with Negativland recalling all the copies of the single and having to pay over $70,000 in damages and legal costs. Artists should not be allowed to use each other’s work. According to the case study, Negativland claims “Our work is an authentic and original whole, being much more than the sum of its samples”. In other words, Negativland does acknowledge that they in fact did use U2’s work but it should be looked at as more than that. Negativland’s work is not original and is just refurbished pieces of some other artist’s work. It’s been said that true creativity......

African

...African Ethics A hateful misconception of African Culture ethics and thought is that it is fundamentally primitive, unsystematic, unsophisticated, and lacking rigid philosophical analysis. An additional stereotype in African thought is it cannot have a real system of ethics due to the behavior dictated by local customs. To label African ethics in this way forms a huge disregard to the rich African indigenous heritage and traditional ethos. The African ethos are based upon tradition, authority, and well-being of their communities. Just currently living in one place is not considered an African community. An African community consists of those who are living and have lived and dies, known as ancestors. African ethics is very complex considering that there is fifty-three nations and almost twelve hundred diverse groups. This leads to difficulties regarding generalizing anything as African perspectives or thought. African culture is diverse and detailed in areas such as polygamy, identity, authority, customs, morality, and religion. In African ethics, behavior is dictated by local customs. This brings confusion to people between customs and morality. Customs are like social rules, they are either explicit or implicit, social rules reflect values. Not all social values have moral rules behind them. For example a social values in African cultures would be a beautiful speech, which is logical, but it is not considered immoral if one is to lack in value. When it comes to......

The Grey Zone

...The Grey Zone Whose responsibility is it to ensure that workplaces are safe, especially when work is outsourced? Strategic managers have the responsibility to ensure that work places are safe when work is outsourced. Strategic decision makers must consider many aspects when pursuing international strategies (Coulter, 2013, p.198). Before doing business internationally, however, strategic managers need to explore, examine, and understand as best as they can, the important issues in the international environment (Coulter, 2013, p.198). Although outsourcing work has its advantages, the drawbacks must also be considered. Some safety concerns could include: 1) differences in language, culture, and value systems, 2) ethnic, religious, and cultural tensions, and 3) disruptive changes such as terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and disease outbreak. Differences in language and culture may cause difficulty in implementing safety protocol. The employees may not fully comprehend what you want, due to the language barrier. The culture of the country that you’re outsourcing your work to may not value safety. This can be a huge risk if you are operating machinery. Ethnic concerns are also important. How the country that your business is based in is, viewed by the country that you’re relocating to? If you are outsourcing work for your company to a country that is hostile towards your, it could pose a huge risk. Will the religious views of the country you’re outsourcing to allow......

Freddie Grey

...On January 1, 1863 Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation; the abolition of slavery. Lincoln freed the slaves to weaken the Southern resistance, strengthen the Federal government, and encouraged free blacks to fight in the Union army, thus preserving the Union. There was a tentative peace in the south between blacks and whites, but it had severe limitations. White Southerners expected blacks to keep to themselves, to socialize and worship in separate venues, to work for white people in menial jobs and for meager wages, and to never request or demand anything, including equal rights. Sadly, equal rights are something that we are still struggling with in present day. On April 12 in Baltimore, MD, Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African American man, reportedly made eye contact with a police officer who was on bike patrol. Unsure as to why Freddie Gray decided to run from the police, but he was then chased by the officers, was finally stopped, and gave up without force, according to the police. Part of this interaction was recorded on a cellphone video and went viral, within hours, on social media. The police found a knife on Freddie Gray they described as illegal, but according to State Attorney Marilyn Mosby: “The knife was not a switchblade and is lawful under Maryland law.” When they arrived at the police station, a medic was reportedly called and Gray was taken to the hospital where he underwent double surgery on his spine. He remained in a coma for a week and on April 19...

...Social learning process is very complicated and normally requires some guidance. Without proper guidance from an experienced member of the society, no one can develop sound social learning skills. In most cases, learning takes the formal or informal inclinations and occurs in day-to-day lives a people. Therefore, it becomes quite imperative to know how to tackle different issues that affect one’s life insofar as one remains a social urgent in the society. Based on this background, this paper looks into the social education that takes place in the lives of characters in the novel Agnes Grey. Throughout the novel, there is a series of learning processes that take place. The learning is majorly received through instructions that people acquire from others around them. From the beginning, the novel talks about all true histories containing instructions (Bronte 1). This is a critical predict that gives a clear indication that the book has a lot to do with learning. According to fuller and Stone the learning process is embedded in mixture of different cultural and family practices. These include family languages, and social customs (154). The main character in the novel, Agnes, notes that her mother took charge of their educating her sister Mary and herself. Their father also took initiative of teaching them Latin (Bronte 2). This was very useful to her. As Barbarin and Wasik note, the crucial role of social education and use of cultural based learning, have the potential of......
