    • 12 Pages

    1. What is a social / cultural norm? a. "The rules of behavior that are considered acceptable in a group or society. People who do not follow these norms may be shunned or suffer some kind of consequence. Norms change according to the environment or situation and may change or be modified over time.” (Your Dictionary, 2016) b. Examples: i. Not making eye contact during conversation – Cultural norm ii. Invading someone’s personal space – Social norm 2. What social / cultural norm did you select for your breeching experiment? Why and how is this behavior a social norm? Why did you select this norm to violate? a. The norm I chose to breech is chewing with my mouth open and talking with my mouth full. I completed my experiment in a mostly middle class to a slightly upper class, public restaurant, during dinner hours. b. Chewing with your mouth closed, and not talking while your mouth is full is a social norm as well as proper etiquette. There are also some areas where this would be considered a cultural norm. We have all been told at one time or another by our parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles, friends or teachers, to chew with our mouths closed, and not to talk with food in your mouth. Sharing the sights and sounds of the food in your mouth with those who are sitting near you is offensive, unsanitary and is simply bad manners. c. I selected to break this norm because I felt it would get the most response, by multiple people, with a single attempt. Through observation I…

All of the research I was able to obtain completely supports my hypothesis. Each of my sources suggest that chewing gum makes a difference. Chewing gum is good for the brain and can boost alertness by 10%. It does…

    Gummy Bear Lab Report

    • 321 Words
    • 2 Pages

    In the experiment I conducted we were trying to figure out in what types of solution would the gummy bears expand the most. The hypothesis I came up with is if the gummy bear is in different liquids then it will get bigger in size. Two trials were tested because the first time we did all the gummy bears dissolved and we were lead to believe the we left them in the liquids too long. They made the liquids almost feel like jell-o texture and we don't know if they expanded before they or not because…

Those in the Kamakura era around 2, 500 times and those before World War II 1, 400 times. Now, the average Japanese person only chews about…

    Phase II – Surgical To correct the periodontal defects occurring in this client I would suggest a particular therapy called Phase II Surgical Therapy. I would suggest two possible surgical therapies to the client. Firstly, I would recommend that the client should have an extraction of certain teeth (particularly the 37) since mastication, at this point of the progression of the periodontal disease, is reduced.
