Fuzzy Thinking Fear is present in every political newscast and radio program these days. You can’t look at president Obama without hearing all the paranoid ideas that right wing television personalities flood the media with. I am a republican; however, feel that our nation needs the influence of democrats, republicans, socialists, and liberals to maintain a balanced government. Looking through the past generations we can find great ideas and programs influenced by people claiming all different parties. In this article, Fuzzy Thinking by Walter G. Moss, we learn that progressive and socialists were responsible for pushing equal rights for both women and blacks between 1890-1912. Of course we can choose to live in fear and remember Stalin and Marx when thinking of socialism. However, the author argues exactly this, we need to let go of fear and analyze all ideas and suggestions from all different parties. I agree with the author that good programs and presidents have shared socialistic influence. History does not lie. We can’t label President Obama and his administration as evil because they desire to involve the government more with programs such as healthcare. I am in no way for “Obama Care” based on what I know; however, I do desire a healthcare overhaul because the current system needs improvement. I think all parties have valuable input and if they could somehow find a way to work together than we could all be happy and successfully improve the current healthcare system. I do fear that too much government control can be a bad thing because I have seen what it has done to a different country firsthand. In Brazil I stood in an emergency room line that wrapped around two blocks as I waited my turn to be seen while my head was split open and was in need of stitches. There were many in line that were either homeless or had no money, some appeared to be fine as they sat and joked with others as they were waiting.…
between different parts of the problem. An approach is the way of tackling a problem, and obviously, a particular approach may be relevant to more than one subject (Checkland, 1981).
A system approach use systems thinking to help in understanding the world and its behaviour. System thinking involves the use of systems concepts (ideas) and system methodologies and leads to construction of models of the system. Soft system modelling is a subjective process because no two people will look at any particular…

W e introduce fuzziness to conceptual knowledge processing by using linguistic variables instead of a two-valued
representation. The attribute/object table for conceptual lattices holds fuzzy membership values rather than

I was a small child of no more than 6 or 7 when I found, lost, found again, and then forsook my first and only imaginary friend. To be clear, it wasn't completely imaginary; it had physical form, but imagined sentience and on occasion I would even attribute physical actions to it. It was a small, fuzzy and purple ball; about the size of a dime in circumference. It was just one of those pom-pom craft items you can buy in bulk, however, this one was special; if only because my mother had…
What is Critical Thinking?
Critical Thinking is a strong topic in the field of education. We are given the opportunity to test thinking skills, which will identify, emphasize and develop the use of solving problems, taking test, and engaging in discussion forums with other students. This strategy will improve the quality of one’s own thinking using skillful analogies, then assessing and reconstruction them.
Critical thinking is often used in everyday lifestyle, whether…
Critical Thinking Revisited?
Many lessons are learned in life. Some lessons are instructions on how to be polite, how much of a tip should be given for different services, and how to be professional. Another lesson not often taught in the workplace or at home, are the hows and whys of critical thinking. Critical thinking is an important skill and can be described as the careful and deliberate determination to accept, reject, or suspend judgment about a claim. In this, critical…
Critical thinking can be defined as the process an individual takes that includes thinking in a logical and sensible manner in order to make a rational decision. Critical thinking also requires an individual to think past their normal capacity or “outside of the box” while improving the quality of thought. “The thinker improves the quality of his or her thinking by skillfully taking charge of the structures inherent in thinking and imposing intellectual standards upon…

Although the term, ‘Critical Thinking’ is in widespread use today, it wasn’t a popular term until relatively recently. Critical thinking became a hot topic over the last decade because of concerns that were expressed by international educators, business leaders, and other organizations. They were concerned that students weren’t being prepared for real life in the 21st century. This spurred education leaders…

Whistler Corporation has their interesting history behind their quick development in past. They were making radar tracker which caution the driver from the police band radar. The gadget mostly made with three inside part that microwave get together, radio recurrence gathering and control get together (Ellet, 2007). Each one section is joined with one another. Above…
