Under this convention, the names of sovereigns and a person’s ancestors were proscribed from writing and speech. Past scholarship in Chinese tends to view the phenomenon as purely secular and explore merely its political and social implications, without exploring in depth the possible influences of the beliefs about the supernatural on the behavior of those that practiced name-tabooing. In this...
This study set out to find out how positive affirmations affect children in an elementary aged classroom. The study consisted of thirteen students in a mixed age Montessori classroom. The study lasted ten days and for six of those days the students simply rated their mood. For the next six days students said positive affirmations in the morning and rated themselves like they did the previous six days. This study used the Mood Meter as the scale for students’ moods. The Mood Meter was created by ...
The exclusion of global knowledge in favor of a condensed western-centric history curriculum casts a shadow on the fact that America is the most globalized and culturally diverse nation in the world. This paper aims to analyze the standards-based world history curriculum as taught in high school among both regular and Advanced Placement classes for its deficiency in providing a comprehensive global history. The primary topic used in the qualitative content analysis and systematic literature revi...

In this study, we used social media data to investigate Benford’s Law. In our experimental analysis, we used three control variables: Total Subscriptions, Total Views, and Video Uploads of Youtube channels to verify if the data is artificial and whether or not it fits Benford’s Law. We noticed how Total Subscriptions does not fit Benford’s Law for the top 5000 most-subscribed channels, and Total Views doesn’t fit for the top 5000 most-viewed channels. The reasons that cause this difference are f...

This paper presents a Dance Therapy program that will attempt to encourage physical, social, and cognitive development amongst students through concepts of mirroring and Teaching Dance for Understand...

In America alone, there are about 6.2 million people with heart failure, and every 40 seconds, a patient with a heart attack is recorded. Myocardial infarction, known as a heart attack, occurs after the blocking or occlusion of a coronary artery, disabling the delivery of oxygenated blood to regions of the heart. Heart failure, usually occurring afte...
As the Earth's ozone layer, which blocks harmful UV radiation from reaching Earth's surface, becomes thinner, sunscreens have become one the most used and most important cosmetic products in recent decades. However, UV filters (both organic and inorganic) in the current synthetic sunscreen are found to affect the marine ecosystem negatively. They pollute the marine environment and cause damage to organisms’ reproductive and digestive systems (from microorganisms to mammals). Here, we use biologi...
The current “State of Jefferson” movement is comprised of residents of a large rural region encompassing much of Northern California and Southern Oregon, where many inhabitants claim the right to statehood. Since its origins in 1941, the State of Jefferson remains an obscure movement for most scholars and is simply labeled a regionalist movement. While Jefferson possesses every factor of a secession movement, including economic and socio-political variables, the complexity of its ideology and id...
