Vitamins and Minerals 1.0 APK
"What they do Although water-solublevitaminshave many tasks in the body, one of the most important ishelpingto free the energy found in the food you eat. Others helpkeeptissues healthy. Here are some examples of how differentvitaminshelp you maintain health: Release energy. Several Bvitamins arekey components of certain coenzymes (molecules that aidenzymes)that help release energy from food. Produce energy.Thiamin,riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, and biotin engage inenergyproduction. Build proteins and cells. Vitamins B6, B12, andfolicacid metabolize amino acids (the building blocks of proteins)andhelp cells multiply. Make collagen. One of many roles playedbyvitamin C is to help make collagen, which knits togetherwounds,supports blood vessel walls, and forms a base for teeth andbones.Words to the wise Contrary to popular belief, somewater-solublevitamins can stay in the body for long periods oftime. Youprobably have several years’ supply of vitamin B12 in yourliver.And even folic acid and vitamin C stores can last more thanacouple of days. Generally, though, water-soluble vitamins shouldbereplenished every few days. Just be aware that there is asmallrisk that consuming large amounts of some of thesemicronutrientsthrough supplements may be quite harmful. Forexample, very highdoses of B6—many times the recommended amount of1.3 milligrams(mg) per day for adults—can damage nerves, causingnumbness andmuscle weakness. A closer look at fat-soluble vitaminsRather thanslipping easily into the bloodstream like mostwater-solublevitamins, fat-soluble vitamins gain entry to the bloodvia lymphchannels in the intestinal wall (see illustration).Manyfat-soluble vitamins travel through the body only under escortbyproteins that act as carriers."
Dog training 1.0 APK
"Keller and Marian Breland were studentsofB.F. Skinner and expanded his techniques to train a varietyofdifferent kinds of animals. In the 1950s, Keller Brelandbegandeveloping a training program for marine mammals. Forobviousreasons, it is difficult and dangerous to design aneffectivepunisher for a dolphin or an orca. It is also challengingto rewarda marine mammal promptly because they are in the water,and thetrainer is often some distance away on land. Many of thesameproblems are inherent in training dogs. If a dog sits, thenjumpsup, spins around and is given a treat, it will probably notknowwhich part of the performance pleased the handler. Thisisespecially true if it took a minute for the trainer to pull outthetreat and present it to the dog. Typically, the dog will pairthereward with the final behavior that it performed before it gotthetreat. So if the dog sat, then jumped up and got a treat, whatit'sreally being trained to do is jump up, not sit. Keep ReadingBelowThis is also true of punishers. If a dog runs away from itsownerand engages in a game of hide-and-seek, it is natural for theownerto punish the dog when he catches it. However, the last thingthedog did before being punished was come to the owner. So comingwhencalled is the behavior that is likely to decrease, insteadofrunning away. Breland solved this problem by designing a marker,orcue, that would let the animal know it had performed correctlyandwould be getting a reward shortly. Breland usedclassicalconditioning to pair a marker signal with a reward, sothat whenthe animal heard the signal it knew it would be getting areward.Then he used operant conditioning to shape behavior usingpositiverewards. The marker helps to reinforce the correct behaviorbecauseit is immediate. The marker is not the reward; it is simplyasignal that the behavior was correct and a promise of a rewardtocome. Because marine mammals are naturally orientedtowardscommunication via sound, it made sense to use a whistleblast asthe marker. Karen Pryor used the same positivereinforcementtechniques in the 1960s to train dolphins. Sherealized the broadapplications of this type of behavioralmodification and in 1984she authored the book ""Don't Shoot theDog,"" which, despite thetitle, is not really about dog training.It covers using positivereinforcement to shape the behavior ofanyone from pet cats todifficult teenagers. Many businesses stilluse this book to teachtheir employees about effectivemanagement."
Astronomy 1.0 APK
"How can we possibly know? Here arefourproofs: The observed expansion of the universe � the redshiftsofgalaxies first described by Edwin Hubble in 1929 impliedabeginning to the universe, as had been suggested byearlierphilosophers. The observed abundances of deuterium, helium,andlithium; production of the observed quantities ofhydrogen'sheavier isotope and the next two heavier elements isthought to bedue primarily to their synthesis in the first threeminutes of theBig Bang. These elements are not produced in therequiredquantities in observed stellar fusion reactions. Thethermalspectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR)waspredicted by Big Bang theory before its observation - alwaysaconvincing argument! The CMBR appears hotter in distant cloudsofgas. The speed of light is finite, so we are seeing thesedistantclouds at an earlier epoch, when the universe was denserandhotter, as expected from Big Bang Theory. The SteadyStatealternative The Steady State Model of scientists Hermann BondiandThomas Gold (and augmented by Fred Hoyle) postulated that therewasno origin to the universe, that the large-scale features oftheuniverse are constant from one epoch to the next, and thustomaintain the average density of galaxies in an expandinguniverse,whole new galaxies must be popping into existence betweentheprevious ones. In addition, to explain the CMBR, a whole newclassof 1014 weak microwave emitting sources must exist. This is�about100,000 times the total number of visible galaxies�(according toHoyle). More modern estimates place the number ofgalaxies at about1011, or ""only"" 1,000 times fewer. This lack ofsupportingevidence for the Steady State theory and the perfectmatch betweenBig Bang predictions and the later discovery of theCMBR has led toalmost universal acceptance of the Big Bang theory.Theoreticalwork in the 1960s �showed that the universe could havehad asingularity, a big bang, if the theory of relativity wascorrect(Stephen Hawking).� Mathematician Roger Penrose andphysicistStephen Hawking went on to prove in 1970 that there musthave beena Big Bang singularity, provided only that Einstein�stheory ofgeneral relativity is correct and that the universecontains onlyas much matter as we observe. We will see later thatthis lattercondition is probably not true, but for now, the BigBang theoryprevails. "

" Why are Chinese martial arts not aswidelypracticed as before? The following are the reasons whyancientpeople liked practicing marital arts: (1) Therecreationalactivities back then were quite limited, so practicingmartial artswas a good choice to kill time; (2) Martial arts couldbe practicedfor the purpose of self-defense, protecting familiesand helpingothers. (3) Practicing martial arts could help achieveindividuals’dreams. In the old days, one’s social standing waspretty muchdependent upon their level of martial arts. The higherlevel theycould reach, the more respect they would receive fromothers.Besides, one could also serve the army andachieveself-actualization in the battlefield. For this reason,practicingmartial arts was more of a trend in society. Today,practicingmartial arts has lost its ground for the followingreasons: (1) Inthe battlefield, modern hi-tech equipments andweapons haverendered martial arts unnecessary. (2) People nowadayshave avariety of recreational activities to choose from. If theywant todo some exercise for bodybuilding purpose, then they canplaybasketball or football. And the society tends to be stable andsafewhen compared to that of the ancient times, so people arenotmotivated to practice martial arts."

Personality Test 1.0 APK
"Personality testing refers to techniquesthatare used to accurately and consistently measurepersonality.Personality is something that we informally assess anddescribeevery day. When we talk about ourselves and others, wefrequentlyrefer to different characteristics of an individual'spersonality.Psychologists do much the same thing when they assesspersonality,but on a much more systematic and scientific level. HowArePersonality Tests Used? For assessing theories To look atchangesin personality To evaluate the effectiveness of therapyDiagnosingpsychological problems Screening job candidatesPersonality testsare also sometimes used in forensic settings toconduct riskassessments, establish competence and in child custodydisputes.Types of Personality Assessment There are two basic typesofpersonality tests: self-report inventories and projectivetests.Self-report inventories involve having test-takers readquestionsand then rate how well the question or statement appliesto them.One of the most common self-report inventories is theMinnesotaMultiphasic Personality Inventory, or MMPI. Projectivetestsinvolve presenting the test-taker with a vague scene, object,orscenario and then asking them to give their interpretation ofthetest item. One well-known example of a projective test istheRorschach Inkblot Test. Potential Problems with PersonalityTestingEach of these approaches has its own unique set ofstrengths,weaknesses, and limitations. The greatest benefit ofself-reportinventories is that they can be standardized and useestablishednorms. They are also relatively easy to administer andhave muchhigher reliability and validity than projectivetests."
