Knowing the Anonymous: in Atlantas Sweet Auburn District.

From wars, to riots, and leading the world’s largest civil rights reform, Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn District disguises its environmental disparity by acknowledging the change in its economic development. Being cognizant of the historical content of an environment allows for the current issue to be diagnosed at the roots enabling an intellectual perspective for exploring the philosophical background of the issue. A historical perspective of a built environment is needed in order to understand the origins of contemporary social, political, and environmental crisis. Furthermore a historical perspective enables the viewer with insight, by allowing them to analyze and get a better interpretation of what and why their economy is undergoing environmental issues.  Being cognizant of the historical content behinds Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn District acknowledges the viewer of current issues it’s enduring such as the increased poverty rate, architectural exclusion, and gender inequality. The rhetoric of the Sweet Atlanta’s Auburn district comes from “within”. A “within” that directly lies well in the mainstream of ancient souvenirs which has evolved over the course of 20 years alluring tourist and other travelers. Upon exploring the interior designs of the National historic site of  M.L.K., in the Sweet Auburn District, I acknowledge that the little children who were there on a field trip were not as interested nor intrigued, and only perceived these artifacts as pieces of history. The significant but personal effect that differentiated various people as  they entered the facility were distinguished by their race. For whites this national historic site created a feeling of sympathy and thankfulness while simultaneously creating a feeling of guilt and courage for blacks. I was implying that people cannot...

Kivisto, Aaron J., et al. “North American Psychologists’ Experiences Of Stalking, Threatening, And Harassing Behavior: A Survey Of ABPP Diplomates.” Professional Psychology: Research And Practice4 (2015): 277-286. PsycINFO. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. This article warns psychologists and potential psychologist of the aggressive behavior they’re going to experience throughout their career. This type of aggressive behavior associates with (STHB) stalking, threatening, and other types of harassing behavior.  (STHB) has been analyzed by the highly skilled psychologist of North America and still there are new things discovered each day. In this passage they examine possible solutions by examining certain characteristics and coping them through psychological therapy to help reduce the amount of time STHB can occur. (STHB) is just one of the disease that challenges the true passion of becoming a clinician, psychologist, or anything else related to health and the human body.Stalking is most often times a repeated offense in which it puts someone in the fear or question of their safety. Although everyone who has been stalked has shared different experiences, the amount of repeated instances seems to be similar. Researchers that studied the stalking or harassing experiences of the healthcare professionals that got attack hypothesize that the attacks are not over. Threatening and unfortunately harassing behavior on the other end are something clinicians have to adapt to deal with every day. Clinicians have to learn to accommodate to certain techniques and strategies for treating (STHB) patients. “The most common and effective strategies included notifying coworkers, directors, and police or security. Several strategies were noted to make the situation worse; 25% indicated that hospitalizing the patient or escorting the client out...

Swaminathan, Swathi, and E. Glenn Schellenberg. “Current Emotion Research In Music Psychology.” Emotion Review2 (2015): 189-197. PsycINFO. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. Music is a global thing that we could all agree to; at least partly because it expresses emotion and regulates affect. Associations between music and emotion have been examined regularly by music psychologist. Sounds are one way that allows us to escape from reality. Acoustic cues are used to make judgements about emotions expressed through music before they really listen to it, (like judging a book by its cover). Acoustic cues allows room for emotions or expressions to be “relevant to all forms of human vocal communication such that there are notable commonalities in the acoustic features of emotionally expressive speech and music.” Just like speech acoustic cues determines the arousal or tones of a story or song for example if a cue is slow and sad then it might indicate that the song is about love or something sympathetic and vice versa.Cultural-general cues gives people from other cultures the ability to feel and relate to other cultures customs accurately. Basic general cues such as tempo, pitch, and loudness enables the listener with recognition of what genre, category or how that artist wants them to feel. Certain music can specifically induce an intense arousal response in normal listeners and this response is mediated by brain structures such as the amygdala and insula that have been implicated in encoding key dimensions of many other kinds of emotional stimuli. Culture-specific cues rely on knowledge of the conventions in a particular musical tradition. A particular timbre may be interpreted to reflect one emotion...

Kok, Rianne, et al. “Normal Variation In Early Parental Sensitivity Predicts Child Structural Brain Development.” Journal Of The American Academy Of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry 54.10 (2015): 824-831. PsycINFO. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. Since early care giving has a long term impact on specific aspects of child development; correlating parental care and brain structure seems quite inevitable. In this article the author informs adults and the young adults about the impact and versatility of sensitive caregiving and how the adequacy your parenting skills could affect the functionality and structure of your child’s brain.  The author also tries to diagnose the potential of maternal vs paternal sensitivity affect it has on brain maturation but due to the scarce population in the homogenous field it failed to do so.  This passage contains a lot of heterogeneous samples with a high risk of abnormal development due to specific child or parenting characteristics.Previous research of foster homes, detention centers, daycares and other institutionalized care have shown that children who have been abandoned at an early age show significant decrease in the amount of corpus callosum (broad band of nerve fibers joining the two hemispheres of the brain) also called a gray matter because its affecting modules of the brain with in the cerebellum such as the hippocampus, vermis, and amygdala eventually giving them split brain. “Split Brain” is a condition characterized by a cluster of neurological abnormalities arising from the partial or complete severing or lesioning of the corpus callosum, the bundle of nerves that connects the right and left hemispheres of the brain.” Recent studies has shown that children who experience less sensitive...

Soliman, Tamer M., Kathryn A. Johnson, and Hyunjin Song. “It’S Not ‘All In Your Head’: Understanding Religion From An Embodied Cognition Perspective.” Perspectives On Psychological Science6 (2015): 852-864. PsycINFO. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. How can a person’s cognitive system integrate representations of supernatural beings into their brain when it cannot be physically observed? Researchers, Scientist, Authors, and Advocates all over the world can elaborate all day on the bias of religion ( why its persists, what function does it carries out, how does it operates) but they never answer the real question “How does religion solve ordinary social problems common to all individuals?” Cognitive Science of Religion research group made it possible to analyze religion from a more cognitive point of view enabling you to acknowledge modules that are typically involved in generating mundane ordinary knowledge about the world and its customs. The Researchers of the Cognitive Science group proposed a naturalistic explanation that “Humans share a tendency to believe in the existence of spiritual agents or an immaterial parallel reality.” CSR studied that the mind was composed of several components of computational modules, each evolved to solve one of the problems recurring in people’s ancestry environment. “These specialized problem solvers are preset to detect a narrow range of the available environmental input, to process the information according to a preset algorithm, and to rapidly work out a fitness-enhancing solution.” In this passage the author mentions the term agents or agency to describe the anonymous or unknown source that connects you to your supernatural beliefs however agents or agencies in the spiritual world are often times invisible, immaterial, omniscient, or outside...
