The base station consists of a system of antennae on top of a tower or tall building. Each base station accepts and can transmit radio signals from three adjacent hexagonal- shaped areas cal...

- Theories of forgetting
THEORIES OF FORGETTING
Forgetting was first studied in detail by Hermann Ebbinghaus (1885/1913).
His basic measure of forgetting was the savings method—the reduction in
number of trials for re-learning compared with original learning. Findings
suggest that the forgetting function is approximately logarithmic.
Forgetting is fastest shortly after learning and the rate then decreases
Rubin and Wenzel (1996) found evidence to support Ebbinghaus from group
data, but suggest that au...

They provide free STI testing throughout this semester; they have a pharmacy on campus, and an after-hours nurse line. It says on the web site that “students are encouraged to establish the university Health Center as their primary point of care while enrolled at the university” (University of Maryland). I did not find anything on the web site about condom ...
- Mental Health in Firefighters
Mental Health in Firefighters
From large scale disasters to minor car wrecks, people look up to firefighters as heroes. They are revered as brave and tough in any situation and their heroics are praised. But there is a side we rarely see to our firefighters. Because firefighters are first responders and arrive on scene to nearly any given situation, they often experience the worst of the situation. Firefighting is one of the most dangerous occupations in America, due to the situations they are...
В начале всего существовал мир, и мы, в общем-то, не так уж много о нем знали. Но, невзирая на это, выжили. Озадаченный житель неолита, задавшийся вопросом о причине такого положения вещей, был первым из философов. Что, вообще говоря, происходит на свете? Зачем все вокруг?
На протяжении тысячелетий ответы, которые мы получали на эти вопросы, были не философскими. В них было всего понемногу: суеверий, сказочек, религии. Первым народом, ...

Debt in America
The reasons why people may fall into debt are, not planning for the future, the
desire for wealth instantly, premature speeding, and living above ones resources. These
problems are lethal but common amongst many people today. The decision of buying now and
paying later has really come to a head. The carelessness of over spending and not budgeting
has taken its toll. The just disrespect for a dollar, is why half the public today are dealing
with great financial hardsh...
- The Role of Genetics on Development
The Role of Genetics on Development
Offspring often resemble one or both of their parents. This is found to be true for every living thing. Both plants and animals pass their traits on to their offspring. The transmission of characteristics from parents to their offspring is known as heredity (Arora, 2006). This paper will discuss how genes of two parents influence the traits of an offspring and will also examine how abnormalities can contribute to genetic and chromosomal disorders.
The atmosphere surrounding the psychological community in the early 20th century had grown stale and weary after many years of highly mentalist and overly conscious theories. In 1913, John B. Watson gave several lectures describing a new, exclusively mentalistic concept of the science of psychological study. Watson abandoned any possibility of introspection, choosing to claim that psychology can only be the study of observable human behavior and anything that is not observable does ...
