- What is a minority group? Cite and explain the defining
characteristics according to your book, paying special attention to “patterns of disability
and disadvantage” and “visible characteristics.” By this definition, are women a minority
group? Why or why not? How about left-handed people? Americans with disabilities?
Gay and lesbian Americans? Could these groups be defined as minority groups? Justify
- TWO PAGE REQUIREMENT- Describe the four theoretical perspectives involving
stratification and inequality. Give me the four Theorists’ names and the theory that they
believe in. Additionally, attach to each theory an example of its usage from the chapters
we have read thus far. For example, what population has been affected by the power
system and how? Include all elements of each theory from each of the four Theorists.
- The following questions refer to the Student Learning Outcomes for the course.
- ONE PAGE REQUIREMENT- Discuss the immigration experience as it relates to
assimilation and pluralism, referring to Chapter 2 in your book.
The following questions require a response no less than 20 sentences:
- Thinking of the semester up until now, how have you had the opportunity to analyze
diversity issues in everyday life both in class and outside of it? Elaborate on your
- Thinking of the semester up until now, what are your thoughts about your ability to
identify the impact of cultural and ethnic differences on personal behaviors, values and
tolerance? Since the beginning of the semester, have you experienced a change in your
thoughts, opinions, and/or attitude regarding any of the issues or populations we have
- Thinking of the semester up until now- You have researched additional forms of
diversity during the Journal assignment, Interview assignment, the Paper Proposal
assignment, and perhaps even for the Weekly Discussions. What are some of the
significant findings from your specific research that you were previously unaware of
and how has this benefitted you?
ter on, one of the most known methods will be discussed in a detailed way. The facial recognition methods that can be used, all have a different approach. Some are more frequently used for facial recognition algorithms than others. The use of a method also depends on the needed applications. For instance, surveillance applications may best be served by capturing face images by means of a video camera while image database investigations may require static intensity images taken by a standard camera. Some other applications, such as access to top security domains, may even necessitate the forgoing of the nonintrusive quality of face recognition by requiring the user to stand in front of a 3D scanner or an infrared sensor. Consequently, there can be concluded that there can be made a division of three groups of face recognition techniques, depending on the wanted type of data results, i.e. methods that compare images, methods that look at data from video cameras and methods that deal with other sensory data, like 3D pictures or infrared imagery. All of them can be used in different ways, to prevent crime from happening or recurring. ii. How do these technologies work? As listed above, there exists a long list of methods and algorithms that can be used for facial recognition. Four of them are used frequently and are most known in the literature, i.e. Eigenface Method, Correlation Method, Fisherface Method and the Linear Subspaces Method. But how do these facial recognition work? Because of word limitations, only one of those four facial recognition techniques, i.e The Eigenface Method, will be discussed. Hopefully this will give an general idea of how facial recognition works and can be used. One of the major difficulties of facial recognition, is that you have to cope with the fact that a person’s appearance may change, such that the two images that are being compared differentiate too much from each other. Also environmental changes in pictures, like lightning, have to be taken into account, in order to have successful facial recognition. Thus from a picture of a face, as well as from a live face, some yet more abstract visual representation must be established which can mediate recognition despite the fact that in real life the same face will hardl>GET ANSWER
