    The results are shown in the form of biases (GMI-CRTM TBs) before (unadjusted) and after (adjusted) applying the RARMA algorithm. The bias histograms seem to appear more similar to a Gaussian distribution in the figure. Eventually, bias exists for all of the GMI channels. Comparatively, a small bias is seen on channel 12, which is in the water vapor absorption line (183.31±3 GHz). One can see that the peak of the distribution for all channels has come closer to zero after applying the RARMA algorithm. This figure should be accompanied with Table 2, which tabulates the resulting mean radiance departures before and after applying the radiometric adjustment procedure. Computed biases seem to vary from one channel to another, which is to be expected. Up to ~5 K bias is observed in some channels, more specifically in channels 3 and 4 (18 GHz). Nevertheless, after applying the RARMA algorithm, a significant bias reduction has been possible. This is evident for all the channels. Given example, the radiance departures for channels 3 and 4 have been reduced to 0.04 and -0.06 K from 3.26 and 5.02 K,…

    accurately perform evaluations (Peak et al, 2010). One of the largest failures of supervisors is documentation as many forget to write an officer’s actions down, whether they be bad or good. “No one incident (unless extreme) makes or breaks an evaluation, but it’s the patterns that are created by an officer’s conduct and performance that do” (Murgado, 2012, par. 5). I encourage my Sergeants to do two things to prevent failure to document. First, I suggest each keep a working diary of the…

    Direct Cinema, or Cinéma Vérité, presents somewhat of a constant and ongoing paradox as to what a film’s criteria should be. Some say Direct Cinema is a specific style of filmmaking and others will say the complete opposite. This is what makes the genre so interesting because there doesn’t seem to be a definitive answer as to what makes something strictly a Direct Cinema film. Is it something that attempts to be unbiased by showing individual moments that aren’t affected by the camera, or is it…

    unbiased information regarding the feminist movement of the 1960s. It was a challenge to find unbiased research because the feminist movement affected and still continues to affect a majority of the American population and even the world population. Generally, it is a challenge to find information that does not have a bias behind it because it is human nature to have an opinion on a situation. In order to try to write an unbiased essay I had to find unbiased data. The feminist movement of the…

    This leads to the questions; what is the role of language and bias in shaping the neutrality of questions and thereby our acquisition of knowledge and to what extent is it possible to formulate a neutral question and thus acquire objective knowledge and truth? First of all, mathematics is often considered a neutral area of knowledge, as it is universal across cultures, and relies on preexisting frameworks built upon deductive reasoning, as opposed to frameworks built upon knowledge by…

    particular reading I find no common correlation to the events in Ferguson, MO; however, the diagnoses of social psychology as emphasized by Emma Higgins is strangely so me. I have utterly been educated and reevaluated myself through Emma Higgins’s The Social Psychology of Ferguson. As accentuated by Higgins, “Let’s first look at some of the ways prejudices are perpetuated and affect our behavior.” A common misinterpretation in situations that we claim to find bias upon such as the events that…

    states their prejudice, or lack thereof. There are strengths to this test but also weaknesses. Strengths include the clear range of prejudice that the person experiences. However, a weakness is the outside factors that influence this type of prejudice. An example is parents teaching their children to have a negative view of African Americans based on the parents already made bias. Implicit prejudice is an automatic response that is from an evaluation of someone. Many times it is an unconscious…

    As said by Al Franken the award winning American comedian “The biases the media has are much bigger than conservative or liberal. They 're about getting ratings, about making money, about doing stories that are easy to cover.” A strong media bias can be proven in the United States through, viewer distribution and viewers trust in different media sources, journalist ideologies, and issues focused on by the media. Biased meaning that the media reports on certain stories and events that favor their…

    For the past few weeks, I have learned about the concept of critical thinking. Learning about what it is to be a critical thinker has led me to a path of self-actualization, for it has allowed me to embrace what I do not know and to strive for the understanding of the unknown. The course on critical thinking has allowed me to analyze what I stand for and to recognize, strengthen, and even change my views by taking all sides of an argument into consideration to reach a conclusion. One of the…
