Such practice is commonly known as classification; the aim of which to bring order and logics to things and thought. We are exposed to classification in every aspect of our life, for example the filing of patients records in a doctor’s office, the way supermarket arrange groceries on their shelves and the layout strategies garments stores use to display their products.
Classification is one of the main activities of cataloguing and involves the assigning of numbers to represent subject content. Without classification, access to and the storing of...

The Classification of a Human Being People rely heavily on sight to detect who other people might be. The assumptions a viewer makes from how a person dresses of combs there hair help the viewer classify their subject. The problems these assumptions cause are numerous, lost opportunities, forced identities and violence among groups are a few results of these assumptions.When people look at one another while passing on the street they see much more than a suit or spiked hair or a pair of baggy jeans. The observer sees these material things as clues to who the person they are looking at might be. There is a classification that occurs. By categorizing, the observer is assuming that who they are...

Over the last few decades classification systems for offenders have been used for a variety of organizational purposes. Over time these classification systems have evolved, not only as a whole in the criminal justice system, but also varying between different organizations. Classification systems that create models based on the risks and needs of offenders are most popular. Throughout the years these models and the purposes for their use have been in a state of change, as well as the way their effectiveness is gaged.
One of the most commonly used classification systems for offenders is the combination of risk assessment and need assessment. The combination of these two systems of...

Classification in biology, is the identification, naming, and groupingof organisms into a formal system. The vast numbers of living forms arenamed and arranged in an orderly manner so that biologists all over theworld can be sure they know the exact organism that is being examinedand discussed. Groups of organisms must be defined by the selection ofimportant characteristics, or shared traits, that make the members ofeach group similar to one another and unlike members of other groups.Modern classification schemes also attempt to place groups intocategories that will reflect an understanding of the evolutionaryprocesses underlying the similarities and differences among organisms.Such...

By definition, the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) is an indexing and retrieval language in the form of a classification for the whole of recorded knowledge, in which subjects are symbolized by a code based on Arabic numerals. The UDC was the brain-child of the two Belgians, Paul Otlet and Henry LaFontaine, who began working on their system in 1889, 15 years after Melvil Dewey established the DDC. Otlet and LaFontaine built their system on the foundation of the DDC with Melvil Dewey’s express permission.

“I drink to make other people more interesting.”
― Ernest Hemingway
In the great world of tending bar there is a myriad selection of customers one would encounter; The Social Drinker, The Self Defined Outcast, The Fish Out of Water, and last but never the least, The Freshman. Each level of drinker has its advantages in social circles and also has equal negative repercussions. Most of these classes aren't built from years of drinking, rather are formed through the personality traits they already have developed through their childhood and young adulthood. Only when alcohol is introduced to the equation, we see these great classifications shine through and become polished for...

Classification is the ordering of organisms into categories to show evolutionary relationships. There is much thought and consideration that goes into animal classification, and specifically primate classification. Different primates are observed and are looked at genetically. It is seen as a controversial topic because many believe that chimps and humans belong in the same category because they are very similar. Currently, there are two major classification systems, anatomical classification and hominoid genetic classification.
The Anatomical Classification begins with three groups; hylobatids, pongids, and hominids, which refer to gibbons, great apes, and humans, respectively. The...

The Origin, Distribution and Classification of Cultivated Broccoli Varieties
Of the many different vegetable crops now under cultivation in both the U.S. and abroad, one that has gained increasing importance is that of broccoli. Although it does not constitute a significant portion of most people's diets, it has nevertheless experienced a kind of "revival" in recent years and has become increasingly popular (Schery, 1972; Heywood, 1978). It may even be said that broccoli has emerged from relative obscurity and attained the status of a worthwhile garden vegetable,"(Talbert, 1953).

Culture is a hot topic. Scholars (Fukoyama, Huntington, to mention but two) disagree about whether this is the end of history or the beginning of a particularly nasty chapter of it.
What makes cultures tick and why some of them tick discernibly better than others – is the main bone of contention.
We can view cultures through the prism of their attitude towards their constituents : the individuals they are comprised of. More so, we can classify them in accordance with their approach towards "humanness", the experience of being human.
Some cultures are evidently anthropocentric – others are anthropo-transcendental. These two lingual coins need elaboration to be fully comprehended. ...

I have determined that there are three different types of zombie movie. First, the movies that showcase the slow, but still startling zombies, like Night of the Living Dead. Night’s “zombies are slow, the humans just get themselves into trouble by reacting stupidly, or not paying enough attention to the problem.” (G.A. Romero) Next, films like Shaun of the Dead, which portray the sometimes amusing but still creepy zombies. And finally, movies like Day of the Dead (2008) which introduce the completely terrifying, gravity-defying zombies.
Night of the Living Dead presents zombies that move slowly but deliberately toward their ultimate objective which is filling their appetites for human...

For centuries males have often wondered the same question that for most women have an obvious answer, yet it is something that many men do not fully understand: "Why do women have so many pairs of shoes?" This subject can often be found as the brunt of jokes or even the root of large arguments between spouses. Although greatly misunderstood, the numerous array of shoes has a purpose, and every pair is meaningful.One of the most misunderstood of all shoe styles is the lady's high heel. The shoe, although often associated with the "playboy" type women, is a very elegant and appropriate shoe. High heels show off a woman's feminine side quickly. Despite the feminine side of heels, they can be...

Movies are made almost everyday, but only some make it to excessive fame. Sometimes the trick maybe, a good script, producers, and directors, better quality sounds and picture and having right people for the roles. Although whether a movie makes it to the top or not depends largely on the fact how appealing it is to the viewer. To achieve this it should either be of relevance to the viewer or it should intrude upon our inner most interests. Based on this assumption I classify the movies I have seen as better, good, bad and worse.
As some of the very best movies I might mention "Oceans Eleven", "Bedazzled" and "Saving Private Ryan". "Oceans Eleven" is action filled, suspenseful and a...

The Bubonic plague is caused by a bacterium called Yersinia pestis, this is a gram-negative rod shaped coccobacillus which can infect humans and other animals. This is a very infectious disease, the main form of transmission is fleas being carried by rodents as the fleas allow for the bacteria to cross the skin barrier, and depending on sanitary conditions of the area it can also be transmitted by direct contact and contaminated food. The infection is achievable as the bacteria can suppress or even avoid the normal immune response to foreign bacteria such as phagocytosis and antibody production.

Evolution of the Motorcycle Rider
My first motorcycle was a Kawasaki Eliminator 250 street bike. I consider it to have been my training bike, and it was somewhat generic in the sense that it was not easily identifiable as a member of a specific style of motorcycle. And, more importantly, by associating with other riders, I realized that I was not easily identifiable as a member of a specific class of riders. Riders are a species all their own; and, though there are many sub-classes within a class, observation has shown that three main branches of evolution can account for most riders.
The cruiser (Homo Draggusanus) variety is most often seen riding a vintage Harley or...
