Results Cereal comes in a multitude of varieties. Some are healthy and chalked full of fiber, protein and other key nutrients and some a sugarcoated nothings. One thing that all cereal has in common is that it contains calories. Not all cereals have the same amount of calories, just like not all cereals have the same ingredients. The contents of the cereal must affect the amount of calories that are present, specifically the sugar content. In the cereal data set we are given a sample of 75 different types of cereal. The samples of cereal are separated by their location on the self; top shelf, middle shelf, and bottom shelf. The top shelf cereals are the one that we would consider the more healthy choices, such as: Kashi Go Lean, Fiber One, and Smart Start. The middle shelf cereals are the ones we can consider to be the more popular choices; Frosted Flakes, Fruity Peebles, Special K, etc. The bottom shelf cereals are the ones that we will consider to be the least popular cereals, ones like: Trix, Honey Comb, Corn Flakes, etc. For each of the 75 samples of cereal we are given the variables: servings per box, sugar content, fat content, fiber content, and calories. For this study the main focus will be on the sugar content and the calories. A descriptive statistics was run on the two variables (sugar content and calories). The descriptive statistics gave us the values for N, minimum, maximum, mean, and standard deviation. We know that there is 75 different samples of cereal, so our N is 75. For calories, the range is 60-300. With that range we know that the lowest value for calories within the 75 samples of cereal is 60 and that the highest value is 300. Also we know that all of the other values fall between those two values. The mean for all 75 samples of cereal’s caloric value is 145.33 and the standard deviation is 49.792. With that we know that the average number of calories for the sample of cereals is 145.33 and there is at least one sample of cereal that is 49.792 standard deviations from the mean. For sugar content, the range is 0-19 grams. With that range we know that the lowest value for sugar content within the 75 samples of cereal is 0 grams and the highest value is 19 grams. This also tells us that the other values fall between those two values. The mean for the 75 samples of cereal’s sugar content is 8.43 grams with a standard deviation of 4.685 grams. This tells us that, the average amount of sugar is 8.43 grams and at least one value is 4.685 standard deviations away from the mean. We predicted that the sugar content of cereal would have an affect on it caloric value. From the cereal data set that was provided a correlation analysis was preformed. A correlation analyses was used because this test will tell us if two of the variables have an association. A correlation test will not only tell us if there is an association, but it will also tell us the size (positive, negative, strong, medium, or weak) of the association. We know that this data set needed to be analyzed with a correlation because we are looking for a relationship between the sugar content of the cereals and the cereal’s caloric value. After the correlation analysis was ran, we found that there was a association between the cereal’s sugar content and its caloric value, r(73) = .427, p < .01 (see Figure 1). With the r-value of .427 we can also conclude that there is a positive medium correlation between the two variables. A positive medium correlation means that generally with more of one variable there will also be more of the second variable. We have found that there is an association between the sugar content and caloric values of the samples of cereal. From those results, we know that the data has a medium effect size; the significance has a medium effect. The p value came out to be .000, meaning that the test was significant at the 0.01 level. When making the hypothesis for the study, we made no assumptions on whether we…
Hollywood films could be as a mirror to reflect the whole society. They have examined the ways in which themes developed in the movies sometimes reveal or verify shifts in the public’s interests, hopes, and fears.
Next, I will argue that there is connection between Hollywood films and increasing violence, by three parts: the impact on children, teenagers and adults.
First of all, observation of violent Hollywood films spurs aggression in children, who are under 12.
Trend( 2007: 42) argues that some…
Soil and Natural Vegetation Assignment
1. Soil: surface layer of the earth, composed of mineral and organic materials, air, and water
Nutrients: mineral substance that us absorbed by plant roots.
Humus: dark, upper layer of soil made up of partially decayed plant material.
Soil profile: different horizons (layers) in the soil and the rock layer (bedrock) below the soil.
Each horizon has different physical, biological and chemical characteristics.
Weathering: breakdown of rock into small particles…
The Despicable Content in Hip-Hop Music – Making Plato Turn in his Grave
In a city where each individual is able to do as he pleases is a city that will be filled with murder, theft, gluttony, deviance and prejudice. Hip-Hop artists, in their music, constantly incorporate these aspects of life within the content of their lyrics. This content is not only described throughout their songs, but the lifestyle of being able to do such things is constantly being advocated. “F*ck the Police” and “Beat…
The Aborigines’ lifestyle was very much similar to that of the Europeans in No Sugar. Do you agree?
In the play No Sugar, Jack Davis explores the depth between the lifestyles of two contrasting races: the White Australians and the Indigenous Australians. The cultural difference combine with the totalitarianism they live in add up to a very unique lifestyle for the Aborigines. Davis utilises the plight of the Millimurra family’s will to survive in the white society to portray the contrasting yet…

Making Connections with Graphene, an Emerging 2D Nanomaterial
Graphene is composed of a one atom thick layer of sp2 hybridized carbons arranged like a honeycomb lattice (Fuchs, 2008) (See Figure. 1). For a long time, scientists knew of its existence but didn’t know how to isolate it from graphite. In 2004, Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov succeeded in isolating graphene by studying the material removed from graphite with adhesive…
HE 111 Bread, Fat, and Sugar
Three nutrient-rich parts: the bran (the outer layers), the germ (the innermost area) and the endosperm (the starchy part in between). Whole wheat is processed to include all three nutritious parts, but white flour uses only the endosperm. Comparing wheat bread to white bread, wheat is much higher in fiber, vitamins B6 and E, magnesium, zinc, folic acid and chromium. But is that enough? Studies show whole wheat is the ultimate best above them all. The…
juvenile with the same physical shape will also be a juvenile delinquent. Although this is a possibility, it is an unlikely one. The quotation from Julius Caesar embodies a very old belief:
Is there a strong connection between abuse and delinquency? In most cases it is a very strong connection, you have the kids that were abused early and when they hit their teenage years lash out at adults some even start to abuse kids that was their age at the time they were being abused. Some join gangs sell drugs…

The Little Mermaid and her Connection with Hoarding
April 30, 2013
Most children grow up watching Disney movies. It might be shocking to hear that a Disney princess may suffer from a psychological disorder. In Walt Disney’s movie The Little Mermaid, I think the main character Ariel suffers from disposophbia, also known as hoarding.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder/hoarding has always interested me. These people take collecting to an…
