Abstract This essay examines contemporary research in psycholinguistics as it applies to the reading approaches. It examines two competing theories of reading development – top-down processing and bottom-up processing -- and examines their discrepancies to reach a more thorough understanding. A hybrid, interactive approach is also discussed. The essay examines particular examples of reading in action to determine the plausibility of these approaches: One example is the psycholinguistic investigation into the extent that the knowledge transferred from L1 ability to L2 proficiency represents top-down or bottom-down processing. The essay argues that attaining higher levels of objective analysis necessarily requires investigation into not only bottom-down or top-down processing, but also the foundational components on which the correlations are based.
1. Briefly state what the soliloquy in Act III scene I 47-72 means, and what it adds to the play. After Banquos departure from the castle, Macbeth begins a soliloquy regarding his fear towards Banquo.Macbeth's fear for Banquo roots from the prophecy that the witches gave Banquo, telling him that he will be the father of kings.Macbeth is frightened of this, becuase if it were to come true, his will be a "fruitless crown," implying that Macbeth would not have an heir to the throne.This Soliloquy makes Macbeth's decision to murder Banquo concrete, due to the fact that within this soliloquy, Macbeth deduced that it was either that he murders Banquo, or Banquo's prophecy will come true, erasing the possibility for an heir to Macbeth.
There are many species in the world. The majority of them lived in bodies of water and many are on land. But these living organisms have been threatened and others have been extinct because of habitat change due to shifting climate. Scientific methods have been applied by major scientists to prove that from the last two hundred years, the earth’s temperature began to increase steadily on a rate of 1 Fahrenheit per century. Society believes that this issue is not a true concern. But in reality, the heat that’s being trapped in the atmosphere causes climate changes to occur. These sudden changes make it harder for living organisms to survive. The result of burning of coal and fossil fuel, desertification, and deforestation are the reasons why the heating and changes of the earth is taking place. When will all of these man made activities end? Technology itself is not even close to solving this problem.

Part I. Introduction The economy in today’s society is in an unstable position. The costs of living, including energy bills are increasingly expensive. The heavy impact of economic hardships has trickled down into the low-family income bracket. The increase in gas and electric bills are significantly affecting low-income families in the District of Columbia. To mention, D.C. has the highest rate of child poverty in the nation. The percentage of African-American D.C. children living in poor families was 62%.2; more than half of D.C.'s children live in low-income households. However, families in poverty and the increase in gas prices is a new problem. This crisis derived many years ago, but it is a continuing issue that led to a many legislative acts and the creation of a energy assistance program.
Confucianism to me is a philosophy because it dose not have the mane characteristics that make other religions, accepted religions. Unlike other religions Confucianism was not reformed in response to fine truth of our creation and creator, or to reach true enlightenment. Also unlike all other religions Confucianism dose not believe in a god or gods, and the teachings of Confucianism do not focus on any sort of after life. Finally Confucianism encourages learning and education of the ever changing world around us; witch is in direct contrast to most other religions.
