Basic Information About the LSAT

The most important part of getting into law school is not your GPA, but the score you get on the Law School Admission Test. Many pre-law students know that this exam is not easier and seek out the help of test preparation courses that will teach them the basics of logical theory.

The point range for scores is on a scale of 120 to 180. What is interesting is that on any given exam, the results are always the same:

** 10% of those who take the test score 162 or above

** 20% score 142 or below

** 70% fall between 142 and 162

So how do these figures translate into whether or not you go off to Harvard or Berkeley?

Well if you happen to score below a 150, your chance of getting into law school is probably not going to happen because there is too much competition from others trying to get into law and colleges look for those who score in the top ten percent. If you happen to score over a 165, there is a good chance that you will have law colleges contending over you and you will be able to select the school of your choice.

When a student takes the LSAT, they should be conscious of the types of questions on the test. The examination is broken down into five parts. This is further broken down into three types known as logical reasoning, reading comprehension, and logic games. Also on every test, you will have at least two logical reasoning sections with a possibility of a third if it is also the experimental.

There is so much pressure on students who study for the Law School Admission Test that they tend to look for tricks to getting by on the exam. There are no quick and simple methods to solving questions on the LSAT. The only way to make this test to be less of a hurdle is to study logic theory until you can make it second nature to you.

One of the biggest myths to taking this exam is that if you don’t know the answer, pick the answer D. Many people have been told incorrectly that D is the answer that comes up the most and if you don’t know the answer than picking this fourth answer has the greatest probability of being right. You must realize that there are no preferred letters on the LSAT and guessing any letter has equal chance of chance of being correct.

Another thing that students sometimes don’t understand is that here is also only one correct answer for every question. There are no point scales in your answers, but there are answers that are very similar to the right choice and are placed there by the Law School Admissions Council to try to hoodwink you. Remember that all the wrong answers have a flaw in them that can be figured out if you had the proper time.

If you are deciding to go to law school and you have to take the LSAT, it is always best to get a tutor or take a preparation class that can best teach you the fundamentals of logic theory. Without a grasp of these concepts, you will not get a score that will get you in the school of choice.

Driving Theory Test Explained

All new drivers (including Motorcyclists) have to pass a two part theory test in order to be able to then take the practical test. The theory test has some slightly different questions for motorbikes but generally they are the same.

The test can be booked online or by phone and there should be a local testing station for the majority of people but you can find your local station online. The theory test itself is split into two parts the first part is the multiple choice questions.

For this section you will be presented with a series of multiple choice question to answer. The questions are presented on a touch screen and you will have to choose either 1, 2,3 or more from the list given in order to answer. As you proceed through the questions if you come across any that you are not sure about the answer to you can flag the question for review later on instead of answering immediately. The advantage of this is that as you continue you may come across another similar question which will help you answer the flagged question. The questions themselves are picked completely at random and so it is not uncommon to have several questions on the same subject and because they are worded differently they can give the answer or make it more obvious to other questions. On the test in order to pass you will have to answer a minimum of 43 out of 50 correctly.

The second part will then start after a short break which is the hazard perception part. In this part of the theory test you be presented with a series of video clips shown from the viewpoint of the driver and you will be expected to identity hazards appearing in the clip and then to click the mouse accordingly to show when you would react as a driver. You can score from 5 for early reaction to 0 for no or too late reaction. You will be presented with 14 clips and each clip will have just one hazard to find except for one clip which will show two clips and as you dont know which clip will be the double clip you will have to keep concentrating on the clips after you think you found the hazard. Make sure you are concentrating fully on this section as you cannot go back if you miss the clip or flag for review as you can with the questions. In order to pass this section of the theory test you will have to score a minimum of 44 out of 75.

At the end of the theory test you will be presented with the result and if you have passed this will include the theory certificate, otherwise if you fail on either part you will have to retake the whole test again. In order to practice fully for the test it is a good idea to use a theory test product that gives you all the questions and plenty of hp clips to get the best chance of passing.

James Cornwell is a Driving Instructor who has been teaching for may years and now runs a http://www.onlinetheorytests.co.uk>theory test website for pupils to use to practice for their theory test you can visit it at www.onlinetheorytests.co.uk.

The Theory of Natural Law

In attempting to garner an understanding of the nature of law, early legal philosophers and academics formulated what has come to be known as the natural law theory, and has become a literal cornerstone of the development of modern legal thinking.  Although somewhat limited in modern jurisprudential thinking, natural law has had a tremendous impact on our understanding of what law means in society as a baseline from which to build more complex theories.  In this article, we will look at some of the major propositions underpinning the concept of natural law, and the corresponding strengths and weaknesses of this fundamental interpretation of the legal function.

Natural law starts with the basic premise that the law is driven by morality, and consequently is affected by it.  With a history extending back to Aristotle and other early philosophers, the natural law theory has traditionally linked the law with religion and an innate sense of justice, rather than the more pragmatic approaches of some other theories.  Although this might sound rather basic, the principals have been developed and refined through academic debate for centuries ultimately leading to a far more sophisticated theory of the nature of law.  The idea that all law is subject to an unwritten code of morality is fundamental to natural law.  This also throws up some potential problems in terms of civil regulation.  Certain natural law theorists suggest that for a law to be binding on the citizen, it must conform to this sense of natural justice.  However, there is clearly no definitive objective concept of morality, which casts doubt over this principle.  Additionally, the prospect that a law may be disregarded in favour of some higher sense of morality doesn’t conform in reality, considering the potential implications of consistently disregarding law on the grounds of the subjective concept of justice.  

Furthermore on this primitive understanding of natural law, the citizen in contravention to the laws of his state, could attempt to excuse his actions through a justification of ‘immoral’ laws.  This would also create a state of disorder, given the natural variation of personal opinions, which would ultimately render society unworkable.  For this reason, the natural law scheme has failed to garner modern academic acceptance, of course with a few exceptions.

Natural law has been proposed as a consideration in trying war criminals, on the basis of the retrospectivity principle, i.e. no man can be tried for a crime that was not a crime when he committed it.  Many war criminals are merely cogs in the machine of a legal regime, which ultimately permits their actions, however unjustifiable morally.  Natural law theories give a basis for challenge on these grounds, whilst avoiding the awkward question of direct legal contravention, which ultimately works to serve justice.  In this sense, it is perhaps useful as a canon of interpretation and in determining just and equitable outcomes in ‘difficult’ cases.  However, as a wider legal concept, natural law and the proposed intersection between law and morality seems too awkward to reconcile with considered academic legal understandings.  Having said that, natural law has provided an excellent starting position for further advanced argumentation, and has provided a platform for critique that has been essential to the development of the more sophisticated ideas held in regard in this modern day.

The Big Bang Theory Cast

The Big Bang Theory is a show with a growing acceptance. This television sitcom is about four highly intelligent co-workers at a science university, who live their personal lives in the fantasy world of science fiction television, comic books, and video games. More specifically the two principal characters are Leonard and Sheldon, who live across the hallway from the beautiful Penny. More information below on the characters of the show.

Leonard
Leonard is played by Johnny Galecki. As principal character Leonard Hofstadter is straight man to Sheldon Cooper’s comic. Galecki you may recall from the sitcom Roseanne where he played Darlene’s girlfriend David. On Roseanne Darlene was played by Sara Gilbert, and Gilbert has a reoccurring role. Also, fellow Roseanne alum Laura Metcalf appeared on the show as Mary Copper, Sheldon’s mother. Leonard is a PhD and roommates with Sheldon Cooper. Across the hallway from their apartment is Penny, a beautiful girl that Leonard desires.

Sheldon
Sheldon is played by Jim Parsons. Sheldon Cooper has an unusually high intelligence, a fact he doesn’t mind sharing. He completed his PhD at sixteen, another fact he doesn’t mind stating. His high intelligence also makes him very removed and self-centered. He has no notion of social norms except as an intellectual curiosity.

Penny
Penny is played by Kaley Cuoco. Penny living across the hall from Leonard and Sheldon has become friends all the boys of the group, but has a flirtatious relationship with Leonard. She another LA aspiring actress but currently works at the Cheesecake Factory. She usually dates men who treat her poorly, but made Leonard jealous by going out with a comic bookstore owner he knows.

Wolowitz
Wolowitz is played by Simon Helberg. Howard Wolowitz is an engineer, working on NASA projects, but only has a masters degree. This is in contrast to the rest of the group, who have their PhD. He considers himself a lady’s man, but he lives with his mother. Another element of the character the show uses is that he is Jewish. Also, unlike the Leonard or Sheldon who dress in geek fashion of science fiction t-shirts, Wolowitz has his own retro style reminiscent of the 1970’s. He always wears a turtle neck and a wide belt with a noteworthy belt buckle.

Raj
Raj is played Kunal Nayyar. Formally, Raj is Rajesh Koothrappali but is often referenced as Raj or Koothrappali. He originally is from India but came to America to study and work as a physicist, a move his parents disapproved because of the limited earning potential. Raj cannot speak to beautiful women while he is not drinking.

The Locus of Control Theory

The Locus of Control Theory postulates that every human being has a “place”- the locus where he/she feels the control of his/her life rests; this place or locus of control can either be internal or external; and it is this position that creatively determines how much “in control” an individual feels about his/her life. 

People with an internal locus generally feel that they have control over their lives and circumstances; they take initiative and seek to positively change their lives. Individuals with an external locus feel that their lives are controlled by circumstances; they feel dis-empowered to do anything about their lives leaving everything to “fate”. 

These people may come from the same family; may have the same jobs and live in the same community – but with two different sets of beliefs. If I asked you which of the two groups would be happiest in life, you certainly wouldn’t have to think long and hard to give an answer. People with an internal locus of control are generally the happiest in life; even in the midst of negativity, they still feel they are in control and that they have within them the ability to make the change. The ones with an external locus of control easily succumb to feelings of helplessness in times of difficulty; they are generally the most miserable in society. 

All this is in accordance with the Law of Control that Brian Tracy talks about in his book entitled Million Dollar Habits. This Law states that “you feel happy to the degree to which you feel in control of your life; you feel unhappy to the degree to which you feel you are not in control of your life.” Your levels of confidence will therefore be largely determined by how much you feel in control of your life and everything happening to you. 

In view of the above, where do you think the locus of control lies in your life? Do you feel that you are in control of your life? Or do you think that you are just a pawn in the hands of fate? Conduct an honest self assessment; to which group do you think you belong? – Internal locus of control? Or is it External? One of the indicators you would want to use is checking the level at which you employ your initiative. Are you the kind that takes initiative or are you always waiting for instruction? Are you the happiest around even in times of difficulty? How often do you have the depressing feelings helplessness? 

There are tools on the Internet that can also help you find out your locus of control. I will not recommend any; seek and you will find. 

I remember the last time I did a Locus of Control test on the Internet; the result was 50 on a scale of 1 to 100; with 1 being the most external and 100 being the most internal. I am not so sure how scientific this test was; it involved honestly answering a list of questions about life; they are no right or wrong answers with such tests; you just answer them as honestly as possible. After the test, I got a report showing my score and what it meant in terms of my locus of control. I was amazed at its accuracy. It was like a window into my mind showing me even the most flirting thought patterns and beliefs. 

What do you think is the best locus of control- is it external or internal? For me an internal locus of control seems empowering. Anything that empowers you is best is best for you; anything that weakens you is probably not good for you. 

I honestly believe that God designed us to have an Internal Locus of Control. The Bible talks so much about the Kingdom of God being in the inside of each one of us. It also talks about how that God has put “eternity in the hearts of men.” In another place, it is written “He who is inside of us is greater that He who is in the world.”

The Theory of Diversity

We are living in a new economy in our world today, placing incredible demands on businesses and their employees. Hours are being cut, pay is slashed, unemployment is higher and, along with this poor economy, so many other critical fundamentals of society are being affected in negative ways. It requires us to adjust our financial thinking and strategy. I encourage you to do whatever it takes to hold onto and increase your prosperity or use this opportunity to gain it. It can be done, even in times like this. It’s great to feel optimistic about the financial future of the world, but we also need to be realistic. The global economy is extremely tough and better times do not appear to be on the horizon. Therefore, it is absolutely critical that we do what we can to prepare for these times. We need to take action and take our finances into our own hands. And, if we want to continue providing wealth and comfort for our families, we need to do so as soon as possible.

The most critical principle of prosperity is diversity. Having only one source of income is deadly. Whenever you are over-dependent on any one thing, you are asking for trouble. This could be one marketing method, one product, and worst of all, one source of income, or one job. Most people in America, and throughout the world, do depend on one job or income source. In the past, this usually seemed to have worked out. But, times have changed and a very large number of people who ignore this principle of diversity are headed for disaster. Intelligent, responsible people are streaming to the internet for additional income sources. They are gaining education and experience in various methods so they can grasp a hold of the powerful leverage which is waiting for, and in the grasp of, anyone to use.

The business transformation the internet is providing is beyond belief. It is a global trend. It is easier and less expensive to begin a home internet business than it ever has been. And, it is more doable to earn incomes beyond imagination. No one is left out of these escalating returns with unheard of benefits. To make the most of internet diversification, and escape your single-source dependence, you will need a step-by-step proven internet system. The system should provide you with a website, marketing funnels, education sources, marketing methods, networking, and training. When you do diversify your income with a powerful, leveraged, online source, your financial future will be secure and stable, and your life will be improved beyond your wildest dreams. It is never too late to start, and it has never been so doable.

You can make unbelievable amounts of money in a short period of time with an internet business of your own. And, you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. The sooner you start, the sooner you will enjoy true wealth, financial security and true freedom. The benefits of your own home internet business go beyond the context of this article. But, best of all, it will diversify your income sources. Therefore, it will mitigate your overall financial vulnerability. You will no longer be a one-income-source statistic, waiting for collapse. Congratulations on diversifying! It’s an essential strategy to your financial success!

Band Theory – Semiconductors

Electrical resistivity is a term used to describe the extent to which a material resists the flow of electric charges through it. Alternatively, electrical conductivity is the ability of a material to conduct electricity and is given as the reciprocal of resistivity.  A material that has very low electrical conductivity is said to be a conducting material, e.g, metals. A material that completely resists the flow of electric current through it, is called an insulator, e.g., plastics. There is another class of materials called as the semiconductors that possess electrical conductivity values in a range intermediate to that of conductors and insulators, e.g., silicon, germanium etc,. the properties of semiconductors pertain to solid state conduction. Semiconductors are an integral part of electronics.

There are numerous devices that can be fabricated using semiconductors. A few examples include transistors, diodes and solar power cells.

Energy band theory:

The behavior of semiconductors is explained using the energy band theory. Electrons are known to possess energies that are by virtue of the energy level in which they exist. At the ground level electrons possess inherent energy to be bound tightly to atoms in the material. It is also known that electrons can be raised to a higher level of energy by way of supplying external energy in terms of heat. Such a process is called excitation and it is possible to excite an electron to a level where it is displaced from its atom and exists as a free electron. The amount of energy required to convert a bound electron into a free electron is called the excitation energy and depends on the type of atom.

Such energy levels exist in the form of energy bands. The ground level band is termed as the valence band and is composed of electrons that fulfill the valency of the atom. There exists a higher energy level above the valence band called the conduction band where electrons can exist as free electrons and are hence capable of movement. Moving charges can be conducted across a medium to produce electric current. The gap or distance between the valence and conduction bands in an atom is called as the energy gap or band gap. The length of this gap varies depending on the type of conducting material. Good conductors are found to have zero band gap, wherein the valence and conduction bands overlap. Insulators have band gaps greater than 7 eV making it impossible to create free electrons in the material. Semiconductors are found to have band gaps in the range of 2eV to 4eV wherein at slightly elevated temperatures it is possible to generate free electrons in the material and convert them into conductors. This temperature varies with the type of semiconducting material. At room temperatures, semiconductors behave like  insulators.

Modern theory of wages

The classical and old theories of wages are either defective or inadequate while explaining the wage determination. Though marginal productivity theory is fairly satisfactory, it does not take into consideration the supply side of labor which is equally important as that of demand. Modern theory of wages provides a satisfactory explanation of wage determination. This theory takes into consideration not only the productive aspect; however, also other aspects viz., demand and supply of labor in the labor market in determining the wages. As such, this theory is called as “demand and supply of theory”.

According to this theory, the price of labor, like the price of any other commodity is determined by the market forces of demand and supply. Although the labor has certain peculiarities and it cannot be regarded as an ordinary commodity, yet the same principle of demand and supply also applies equally well.

Demand for labor: Demand for labor is not a direct demand but a derived demand. The elasticity of demand for labor also depends upon the elasticity of demand for goods which it produces. The demand for labor depends on the price of other complementary and competitive factors. For example, labor and machines are substitutes and they would be competing with each other for being engaged in a particular line of production. If the prices of machinery are higher than those of labor, the employer would prefer to employ more of labor. Thus the demand for labor would increase.

Apart from the above, a fundamental consideration governing the demand for labor is its productivity. Just like there is a demand price for goods, there is, also a demand price for labor. The demand for labor comes from the producers who want to engage them in the process of production. The demand price of labor depends upon productivity; to be more precise, the marginal productivity, i.e. marginal revenue product of labor. The higher the productivity of labor, the greater will be the demand for it from employers.

The law of diminishing marginal productivity comes to operate when more and more laborers are employed. The employer would keep on engaging more and more laborers so long as their contribution to production is more than the wages paid. However, the moment wages become equal to the marginal productivity of labor, further employment of labor would be stopped, as any more employment of labor would bring about a loss to the producers. Since all labor is assumed to be homogeneous what is paid to the laborer will be paid to all others. Hence wage would be equal to marginal productivity.

The Theory of Control Charts

A process is the value-added transformation of inputs to outputs. The inputs and outputs of a process can involve machines, materials, methods, measurement, people, and the environment. Each of the inputs is a source of variability. Variability in the output can result in poor service and poor product quality, both of which often decrease customer satisfaction. Control charts, developed by Walter Shewhart in the 1920s, are commonly used statistical tools for monitoring and improving processes. A control chart analyzes a process in which data are collected sequentially over time. You use a control chart to study past performance, to evaluate present conditions, or to predict future outcomes. You use control charts at the beginning of quality improvement efforts to study an existing process (such charts are called Phase 1 control charts).

Information gained from analyzing Phase 1 control charts forms the basis for process improvement. After improvements to the process are implemented, you then use control charts to monitor the processes to ensure that the improvements continue (these charts are called Phase 2 control charts). Different types of control charts allow you to analyze different types of critical-to-quality variables—for categorical variables, such as the proportion of hotel rooms that are nonconforming in terms of the availability of amenities and the working order of all appliances in the room; for discrete variables such as the number of hotel guests registering complaints in a week; and for continuous variables, such as the length of time required for delivering luggage to the room. In addition to providing a visual display of data representing a process, a principal focus of a control chart is the attempt to separate special causes of variation from common causes of variation.

Special causes of variation represent large fluctuations or patterns in data that are not part of a process. These fluctuations are often caused by unusual events and represent either problems to correct or opportunities to exploit. Some organizations refer to special causes of variation as assignable causes of variation. Common causes of variation represent the inherent variability that exists in a process. These fluctuations consist of the numerous small causes of variability that operate randomly or by chance. Some organizations refer to common causes of variation as chance causes of variation.

Control charts allow you to monitor a process and identify the presence or absence of special causes. By doing so, control charts help prevent two types of errors. The first type of error involves the belief that an observed value represents special cause variation when it is due to the common cause variation of the process. Treating common cause variation as special cause variation often results in over adjusting a process. This over adjustment, known as tampering, increases the variation in the process. The second type of error involves treating special cause variation as common cause variation. This error results in not taking immediate corrective action when necessary. Although both of these types of errors can occur even when using a control chart, they are far less likely.
