  • Nick Weatherson Simulation Theory

    Simulation Theory “There’s a one in billions chance we’re in base reality,” claims Elon Musk, product architect of Tesla Inc., founder of SpaceX, and more. In recent years, the simulation-argument has gained serious traction as we further advance technologically, and intellectually. However, not everyone is on board with the “simulation argument”—a term coined by Nick Bostrom (Philosophy Professor at Oxford University) when he published a journal stating: [A]t least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; (2) any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof);…

  • Gifted Simulation Analysis

    One of the main criteria I would use to evaluate the suitability of a specific simulation is whether or not the simulation involves higher order thinking. One of the traits that “differentiates gifted students from their age peers is their exceptional capacity to perceive information and use it productively” (Parks, 2009, p. 261). As a teacher, we are “challenged to select or design instruction to teach reasoning processes that are abstract, sometimes requiring a technical understanding of…

  • Nt1310 Unit 3.2 Simulations

    tests, hardware emulation, test-beds and mathematical models. Software simulation, since, is usually a time effective and cost efficient method. Researchers around the globe are utilizing software simulation tools because it offers a controlled atmosphere within which any network model performance can be measured easily and efficiently. Nowadays, the popularity of the available network simulators and specifically that of Ad Hoc networks varies from one simulator to another. Besides, each…

  • The Influence Of Exclusion

    the control group with the simulation of being able to fly that recalled a time where they were excluded had an increased desire to contact friends than those that had the simulation of flight but rather only recalled the last meal they ate. The participants who has the experience of being excluded with the simulation of being invulnerable had a large disinterest in contacting their friends did the people with exclusion flight group. For the groups that had invulnerability with either recalling…

  • Brazil Army Case Study Solution

    The advantages of the use of simulation includes, among others, the reduction of expenditures shifts to the training camps increasingly restricted as well as the transit of troops on the ground, reducing the accident risks. It also provides the economy with the maintenance of logistics activity, the reduction of damage to the military use of material garrisons still in teaching-learning process and the increased time available with the material at hand for the conservation activity; and the…

  • Barg Theory

    to death or physical harm. Huang, Ackerman, and Barg hypothesized that alleviating the foundational concerns with danger could lessen people’s need to cope with exclusion. This hypothesis is the main theory of the paper. The three studies preformed help show how physical invulnerability simulation can lessen good and bad reactions to social exclusion. The three studies help support whether or not the authors hypothesis is correct or not. Truly, each of the three studies either support or do not…

  • Superman To The Rescue Article Analysis

    In the article Superman to the Rescue: Simulating Physical Invulnerability Attenuates Exclusion-Related Interpersonal Biases (Ackerman, Bargh, & Huan, 2013) Julie Huan, Joshua Ackerman, and John Bargh set up a number of studies including a pre-test, study one, study two, and study three to demonstrate the relation between physical invulnerability simulation and positive or negative reactions to being excluded in social situations. They also consider how the reactions of exclusion can change when…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Parallel Computing

    scientific modeling and simulation. Everything from galaxy formation and planetary motion to climate change and tectonic plates to traffic and assembly lines and fluid dynamics and more can be studied with computer models using parallel software. For instance, meteorologists used the Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge national laboratory to predict Hurricane Sandy’s landfall seven days in advance. Also, the National Renewable Energy Lab built a cluster supercomputer that modelled the hundreds…

  • Self Reflective Summary

    The strategy was explained as one that not only made the lesson real for the students, but also allowed them to become fully involved in their learning (Clapper, 2006). Role-play was the form of simulation addressed in the article. Students were encouraged to move and interact with their lesson in the form of a skit (Clapper, 2006). The students were either provided with a scenario to play out in a pre-determined amount of time, or the students created their own skit from the lesson (Clapper,…

  • Hawaii Simulation

    The Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) is another base providing a suitable habitat for simulations and research (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation). The geography at this isolated location in Hawaii is exceptionally similar to that on Mars. Additionally, synonymous with conditions on Mars, the area is largely clear of plants and animals (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation). The soil near this Hawaiian base contains minerals also found in Martian…
