...BUSN311 – Quantitative Methods and Analysis Instructor: Dr. Bari Courts Regression Analysis DB5 Tracie Tindsl Correlation is when there is a relationship between variables that will vary or be associated together in one way or another (Segal & Cernauskas, 2011). This type of variable is very popular, it used in many different ways. There is a wide spread of use when using the correlational research and many industries are very favorable to it. This is very reliable method and it supportive. However, it is not known to prove a relationship. There are three possible results of a correlational study: positive correlation, a negative correlation and no correlation (New York Times, 2012). One variable from the AIU course data set would be gender. Male and female is a basic variable with a positive outcome. Tenure is a variable that may be used in the workplace, the length of time an individual is an employee at a company or business. The questions that others would ask would be “How many males or females stay as an employee with any company. There correlation research between gender and tenure, along with male to female. I feel that these two variables is a way that companies would review that equal opportunity Act. As we all are knowledgably to the fact that there are issues in this area.

The Perils of Obedience

...The perils of obedience "Be quiet! Write this down." How often have you heard this, or something like it? We hear or come across commands, instructions, directions and orders every day. What is it that makes us obey (or disobey) them? Millions of people were killed in Nazi Germany in concentration camps but Hitler couldn't have killed them all, nor could a handful of people. What made all those people follow the orders they were given? Were they afraid, or was there something in their personality that made them like that? In order to obey authority, the obeying person has to accept that it is legitimate (i.e. rightful, legal) for the command to be made of them. Obedience is a form of social influence where an individual acts in response to a direct order from another individual, who is usually an authority figure. It is assumed that without such an order the person would not have acted in this way. Obedience occurs when you are told to do something (authority), whereas conformity happens through social pressure (the norms of the majority). Obedience involves a hierarchy of power / status. Therefore, the person giving the order has a higher status than the person receiving the order.

Texting and Driving

...Crystal Comp 1 November 25, 2013 Texting and Driving “Five seconds, is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55 mph, that’s enough, time to cover the length of a football field” (“Stop The Texts Stop The Wrecks”). Most accidents are blamed on distractions while driving. Most of those distractions are proven to be caused by texting and driving. Many teens do not realize how quick accidents can happen. When it comes to texting and driving, accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. This problem, has taken our nation by storm in the last decade. Whether people think they can safely text and drive or not, this problem need to be stopped. Accidents have increased significantly since cell phones have become popular. “Using a cell phone while driving, whether it’s handheld or hands free, delays a driver’s reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08% (“Stop The Texts Stop The Wrecks”). Texting and driving is now at a higher accident rate then drinking and driving. To me, this is getting out of hand. Teenagers and young adults ranging from age fifteen to age twenty are rated as the greatest portion of distracted drivers. Texting and driving should be banned in every state because it is dangerous, irresponsible, and there are alternatives! As previously stated, texting and driving is very dangerous.

... The Perils of Privatization The Perils of Privatization Initially, privatization allows governments to decouple from an unsustainable state-led economic model, which reduces fiscal pressures and provides space for entrepreneurial experimentation. But, from India to Brazil and Turkey, we have seen how several years of impressive economic expansion, under the guidance of market-oriented governments, has been followed by an explosion in public discontent over endemic corruption, macroeconomic uncertainty, and slowing growth -- signifying a major gap in the relationship between the state and markets. Among newly-emerging economies such as the Philippines, recent economic gains have largely failed to trickle down to the masses. In absence of real political parties, reforms have been more a function of the personal whims of the political leadership rather than a reflection of carefully-considered programmatic action. There has been hardly any policy consistency, with cyclical leadership change ushering in new policy directions -- undermining the positive legacy of the previous administration. True, the Aquino administration has managed to restore a measure of confidence in the economy, with more global investors taking notice of the country's massive economic potentials. And a legion of hard-working Filipinos around the world will continue to boost their national economy through tens of billions in annual remittances. Nevertheless, the long-term trajectory of the Philippine......

The Perils of Texting While Driving

...found that male drivers are more likely to engage in texting while driving but consider themselves more proficient drivers than others and so less likely to endanger themselves or others while doing so. Facebook 0 Twitter 0 Share 0 Analysis indicates 'texting impulsiveness' is positively associated with people who text frequently and those who text while driving, the team reports in the International Journal of Sustainable Strategic Management this month. Earlier studies have suggested that texting while driving is on a par with driving while intoxicated with alcohol as a significant risk factor for highway accidents. Indeed, some research suggested that texting slows driver reaction times more than being drunk. Other studies reinforce the myth of multitasking and show that very few (2.5%) people can competently undertake two or more tasks at once. Moreover, our brains allow us to focus completely only on a single task at any given time, so those people demonstrated as multitaskers are simply better at switching seamlessly between two activities. Texting while driving is already banned in some countries, including the UK for this reason. "There seems to be a mentality that use of electronic devices is dangerous for everyone but 'me'," the team says. While the US government has introduced a public awareness campaign based around the "distraction.gov" web site, the means to correct for such a risky practice as texting while driving is in dispute. The team's study......

Perils of Obedience

...The Perils of Obedience by Stanley Milgram Stanley Milgram’s “ The Perils of Obedience” shows that some people can obey authority even when it requires committing terrible actions within their society. Milgram begins his essay by describing what obedience is and how deeply ingrained of a behavior tendency that it is. He then sets up an experiment at Yale University that will push the limits of human obedience. He has a “teacher” give out a series of simple word pairs for the “learner”. If the learner gets a word pair wrong then the teacher gives out a series of shock ranging from 15 to 450 volts. The teacher who is the real subject in the experiment does not know that the learner is a paid actor who does not receive any actual shocks. The motivation behind this experiment for Milgram was to test just how far people would go to obey the command of an authority figure. Milgram’s theory is that the subject will have total control of what they are doing and will disobey the authority figure when inflicting pain onto a hopeless human being. One of his subjects, Gretchen Brandt, is participating with the experiment when the learner got the word pair wrong she showed the self control to stop shocking to not continue. Milgram thought that this is how the majority of subjects would react, “Her behavior is the very embodiment of what I envisioned would be true for almost all subject”(Milgram, 44). Brandt simply wasn’t worried about rejecting the authority if it meant that she no......

...what age the driver is, under no circumstance should they be texting while driving. Texting or using a cell phone while driving is very hazardous to yourself and the people surrounding you. One reason the majority of people are against this action is because it causes a great amount of car accidents every year. (Copeland) While driving, adults and teenagers cannot resist the urge to pick up their cell phone and send a text or respond to one. When the driver hears the vibrate or ring, nothing can stop them from checking the notification on their phone. As soon as the driver’s eyes meet their cellular device, their focus on the road is drawn away. In 2009, 5,474 lives were taken and 448,000 people got injured from car accidents from being distracted while driving, says the government. (Copeland) The lives of innocent people are being taken every day due to a simple distraction. Car crashes are four times more common to take place while the driver is on their mobile device over any other causes. (Mulgrew) Different states have particular views on the laws put into effect about texting while driving. The state of Utah has a law established stating that if a driver is texting while driving and winds up crashing, they will spend fifteen years in jail. (Mulgrew) Most people don’t seem to realize how careless they can be while driving a car. According to Bret Schulte, talking on a cell phone is not as dangerous as texting these days. (Schulte) While talking on the phone, it is......

...Emanuel Coleman Professor Smicialas English 161 9 September 2014 The Perils Of Obedience “Obedience is as basic an element in the structure of social life as one can point to.” (Milgram 631). In Stanley Milgram’s 1963 study Perils of Obedience, he finds that human beings, when ordered by an authority, will commit atrocious acts against another human being. He proves this through an extensive scientific study. In this study, he pulls from a multitude of different social classes and cultures. Asking, the subjects to bring bodily harm to another person in the form of increasingly stronger electric shocks, ranging from 15 to 450 volts. The role assigned to the test subjects is that of "teacher" and "learner."The learner is put in a room and strapped to an electric chair, the teacher is in another room where they can see the learner. The teacher is seated next to a huge machine that administers the shocks. The scientist starts commanding from near by. He begins by calmly demanding that the teacher shock the student if the student does not accurately repeat a set of words that progressively advance in difficulty. The results of his 1963 study were shocking, even the people he sought to predict the outcome, which includes a variety of people from psychiatrists to college students and middle class adults. Interestingly enough, Milgram states that, “with remarkable similarity they predicted that virtually all subjects would refuse to obey the experimenter” (Milgram......

Texting

...Introduction Texting has become a detrimental tool that has provoked social interaction and intimacy. Every year, more and more people are using text messaging to communicate with their peers. In 2000, 14 billion texts were sent monthly. In 2010, 188 billion text messages were sent or received with zero sign of reduction (cite). Text messaging has become the normal way to interconnect with others. Text messaging is portable and can be used anywhere. People read and send text messages in class, on the bus, at work, in the washroom and sometimes during dates. Text messaging has become the primary way in which people communicate. It allows us to instantly communicate with peers, but withdraws us from face-to-face interaction. In today’s society, text messaging is corrupting our social interaction and intimacy with others. Before text messages were involved, the best way for social interaction was face-to-face conversations. Nowadays, text messaging is used for everything. Studies have demonstrated the negative affects text messaging has on social interactions. Text messaging effects children and youth social interaction. Adults do not rely on messaging as often to communicate with others. However, having intimate conversations via text messages has damaged relationships.

P5] Instant, fast, fun and cheap, texting — sending and receiving brief text messages on cell phones and other portable devices — has been the rage in Europe since the late '90s. Now it's making inroads in the USA. Early users love it, but some people worry that it will add yet another distraction to already overtasked lives. P6] Teens, techies and other early adopters leading the charge to text say it's a great way to communicate when they are too busy to talk or when making a call would be rude or impractical.
