    Exploring An Evolutionary Theory Of Jealousy Through Sexual And Emotional Infidelity

    2357 words, 10 pages

    Abstract Evolutionary theories of jealousy, popularised in psychological circles by the research of Buss, Buunk and their colleagues, have aroused criticism by other researchers claiming that the design of these studies was confounded by a number of factors. This study in particular will test the ‘double-shot’ hypothesis of De Steno & Salovey in order to ascertain whether a 1992 study by Buss et al. still holds true when more rigorously tested on a larger population. Three questions regarding the activation of jealously via sexual and emotional infidelities will be considered in order to perf

An Equal Pay Act, which came into effect in 1963, guaranteed equal pay for equal work in the United States. However a sex-based gap in earnings still persists with a difference of women’s pay at about three fifths that of men’s (Newman, 2006).

    LAB REPORT Ventilation and Oxygen Consuption INTRODUCTION Goldfish (Carassius auratus) are ectothermic (cold-blooded) animals. This means that their body temperature changes with the change in the environmental temperature. When there is a low water temperature a fish slows down and so do its metabolic activities and when water temperatures are high, fish speed up and their metabolic processes increase as well. Proteins and enzymes are also affected by temperature changes. Oxygen is essential for the production of ATP from nutrients in cells; consequent

    Logarithm Math A logarithm is the power to which a number must be raised in order to get some other number. For example, the base ten logarithm of 100 is 2, because ten raised to the power of two is 100: log 100 = 2 because 102 = 100 This is an example of a base-ten logarithm. We call it a base ten logarithm because ten is the number that is raised to a power. The base unit is the number being raised to a power. There are logarithms using different base units. If you wanted, you could use two as a base unit. For instance, the base two logarithm of eight is three, becaus

To the extent that geometry is the preferred language for architectural communication, its interrogation has become the dominant form of writing in architecture.

    Transposed-Letter Effects: Consonants, Vowels and Letter Frequency Abstract There is now considerable evidence (e.g., Perea & Lupker, 2003a; 2003b) that transposed-letter nonword primes (e.g., jugde for JUDGE) are more effective primes than replacement-letter nonword primes (e.g., jupte for JUDGE). Recently, Perea and Lupker (2004) demonstrated that, in Spanish, this transposed-letter prime advantage exists only when the transposed letters are consonants (C-C transpositions) and not when they are vowels (V-V transpositions). This vowel-consonant difference cause
