Design, develop, and deliver a 15-minute presentation based on your project plan, (which you will deliver to the program faculty and industry partners).
A) Design and Develop a 15-minute presentation
Develop a 15-minute presentation to introduce your project plan following the expanded events listed below.
o Hook or Elevator Pitch (motivate) the audience so that they will be interested in watching the rest of your presentation (opening, short statement or question that illustrates the problem – 15 to 60 seconds)
o Establish purpose (Agenda)
o Define objectives/goals of the project
o If your project is with an industry partner, define the alignment of the project with the corporate goal(s) addressed – how did the business influence this project?
After spending his initial foray into parapsychology trying to replicate Rhine’s results, he eventually moved on and began to perform his own parapsychological experiments. One would wonder why he would bother performing further research into the evidence of clairvoyance and telepathy after having so much data disproving their existence. This was due to parapsychologist Walter Whately Carrington informing him that there was a new way he could analyze his data to find proof of ESP. This new way of looking at the data was known as displacement. Carrington stated that displacement was necessary because the subjects could be suffering “temporal distraction” which would cause them to guess cards behind or ahead of the card being shown to them. This was obviously just a way to make his data look better than it actually was, and after revisiting the data he had from his previous testing he was now able to find two subjects that had data which was statistically significant. These two subjects were Gloria Stewart and Basil Shackleton. When encountering this newfound significance in his data Soal began a new set of experiments in 1941 which lasted until 1943. Soal performed these tests with Kathleen Mary Goldney, a fellow parapsychologist of the Society for Psychical research. These tests seemed to solidify psychic ability with hard scientific evidence. Quite a 180 from how Soal began his endeavor into parapsychology and all from looking at his three-year-old in a new way. Many were skeptical of the results Soal had achieved, however there was no way to prove that he had lied or cheated his way to the results he claimed and at a glance it seemed that there was nothing wrong with the new data that was gathered. The newly performed “Shackleton Experiments” were extremely elaborate, as can be seen in one of the figures from Soal’s own “Modern Experiments in Telepathy”, which he published in 1954. When this experiment was published it also gave evidence for those who were skeptical of Soal’s experiments. He himself states that, “We have not, therefore, in these new experiments concentrated on ultra-rigorous precautions against fraud on the part of the experimenters”. His view was that “if the experimenters (academic people) are not to be trusted, there is no point whatever in their doing experiments” (203, Soal). This sentence gave skeptics exactly what they needed to >GET ANSWER
