You are to select a team from the NBA to do the following study by making a control chart for your team. As an
avid fan, you have decided to chart the points scored by your team, the Celtics. You may use the website
(www.nba.com) to find the data for this project as a retrospective study, or chart the next 15 games that your
team plays by checking the papers on a daily basis.
Past experience has shown the NBA teams average 98 points per game with a standard deviation of 3 points
per game. You expect your team to be consistent. Consider the following three measures of them experiencing
a significant change:
i. Any game outside three standard deviations of the mean.
ii. Any nine in a row on the same side of the mean.
iii. Any two of three more than two standard deviations on the same side of the mean.
Write a summary of your team’s performance over the past 15 games. Note any trends that appear on your
graph. If anything happened to any player on the team during the time or if any other significant event(s) took
place, which could have accounted for the change in team performance, please reference them in your report.
This same theme is continued in the essay ‘This Sex Which is Not One’ (1985) by Luce Irigaray where the example of the female genitals is cited as existing as an intensive binary, each part relying and drawing stimulation from the other, thus challenging the oneness and singularity of the phallus. Irigaray also makes the point that, for female sexuality, touch is more meaningful that vision, the first suggestion that there maybe some cross over between the critiques of sexual difference and representation. As Owens (1983) suggests, postmodernity and the critique of representation also aimed to challenge the accepted (male dominated) field of vision by, firstly, exposing the links that exist between representation and phallocentricism and then by asserting the value of multi-perspectives, multiple readings and other modes of viewing. The postmodern image, as Jameson (1991) states, is one that has lost its originary connection to a real world and exists instead in a circuit of self referencing images whereby “The world…momentarily loses its depth and threatens to become a glossy skin, a stereoscopic illusion, a rush of filmic images without density.” The postmodern image elides notions such as authenticity and distinct critical reading because it has lost what Benjamin (2008) described as the aura of original authorial intent. Commensurate with notions such as the death of author (Barthes, 1988) the postmodern critical position asserts the validity of multiple readings and the inherent intertextual nature of image and text, as Owens (1983) states: It is precisely at the legislative frontier between what can be represented and what can cannot that the postmodernist operation is being staged not in order to transcend representation, but in order to expose the system of power that authorizes certain representations while blocking, prohibiting or invalidating others.
