  • Behaviorism (or behaviourism), also called the learning perspective (where any physical action is a behavior), is a philosophy of psychology based on the proposition that all things that organisms do—including acting, thinking and feeling—can and should be regarded as behaviors.
  • The science of behavior change; the study of the functional relations between behavior and environmental events. It attempts to understand, explain, describe and predict behavior. In many ways it is a study of how animals learn.

applied behavior analysis jobs – Criminal Profiling:

Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis
Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis
Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis is a unique work centered on the Deductive Profiling method developed by the author. Deductive Profiling is different from other forms of profiling because it centers the process on forensic evidence and does not involve the use of averaged, statistical profiles. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships.
Criminal Profiling includes a thorough rendering of the features of the deductive profiling method, an overview of the legal aspects involved in profiling, and an exploration into specific profiling issues that arise in different types of serial crime. It also includes the author’s unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) of 1888 and the JonBenet Ramsey homicide of 1996.
Criminal Profiling is a perfect companion for students and professionals in the law enforcement, mental health, criminological, and legal communities.

Key Features
* A unique approach–centered on the author’s Deductive Profiling method
* Addresses related issues, such as ethics, clinical perspectives, and the essential role of the task force
* Provides a unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) and the JonBenet Ramsey case
* Boasts the support of the world’s leading forensic authors and profilers (Saferstein, Lee, Gebeth, Hare, and Teten)
* Written in a style accessible to a wide audience–from the detective performing hands-on casework to the academician in the classroom

Steve Oney Author of 'And the Dead Shall Rise'

Steve Oney Author of 'And the Dead Shall Rise'
Steve Oney author of the Leo Frank book, ‘And the Dead Shall Rise, the Murder of Mary Phagan and Lynching of Leo Frank’ (2003). A negative review of his book on Amazon.com

Within his 742 page "magnum opus" about the Leo Frank case, what Steve Oney shamelessly failed to inform the reader, is who ultimately solved the Mary Phagan murder mystery in 1913.

Spoiler Alert: Leo Frank made an admission during his trial that amounted to a murder confession.

On Monday morning April 28, 1913, Leo Frank was taken down to the Atlanta Police Station, for routine questioning during the critical first 48 hours of the Mary Phagan murder investigation. In an interrogation room, Leo Frank was flanked by his two elite Lawyers, Luther Z. Rosser and Herbert Haas, and encompassed by a team of police, staff and detectives. Leo Frank made a deposition concerning his whereabouts during Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913, and about his "brief" encounter with Mary Phagan at minutes after highnoon. Leo Frank’s statement was stenographed by a government magistrate, named Mr. February, and the statement became part of the official record at the Leo Frank trial, registered as State’s Exhibit B (Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence, 1913). Leo Frank specifically said Mary Phagan entered his 2nd floor office on Saturday, April 26, 1913, between "12:05 pm and 12:10 pm, maybe 12:07 pm". Leo Frank also repeatedly told the police and detectives, he never left his office on April 26, 1913, between twelve noon and 12:45 pm. However, Leo Frank’s timeline alibi would dramatically change at his trial (July 28 to August 21, 1913) on August 18, 1913, when he mounted the witness stand.

At the trial of Leo Frank accused of murdering Mary Phagan, a young 14-year old girl named Monteen Stover, who formerly worked at the National Pencil Company, testified she went there to collect her pay envelope inside Leo Frank’s office on Saturday, April 26, 1913, at 12:05 p.m. and found Leo Frank’s office completely empty. Monteen Stover described waiting inside the office for five minutes until 12:10 pm and then left, because she thought the factory might have been deserted. If Monteen Stover was telling the truth, she had inadvertently broken Leo Frank’s alibi concerning his whereabouts on that fateful day. What was ironic about Monteen Stover is that she was a positive character defense witness for Leo Frank, unlike 19 of his other employees and associates whose testimony suggested Leo Frank was a lecherous, licentious, lascivious and libertine boss.

Leo Frank specifically answered on August 18, 1913, why Monteen Stover found his office empty on Saturday, April 26, 1913, between 12:05pm and 12:10pm, and in doing so, Leo Frank solved the Mary Phagan murder mystery.

Three weeks into the trial on August 18, 1913, Leo Frank mounted the witness stand at 2:15 pm to make an unsworn courtroom speech to the Judge and Jury on the record. During Leo Frank’s 4-hour trial statement, he refused to be examined or cross examined by defense and prosecution counselors, but he answered the question everyone wanted to know, by directly responding to the testimony of Monteen Stover about why his office was empty on April 26, 1913, between 12:05 pm and 12:10 pm. Leo Frank contradicted his earlier statement to the police and explained this five minute absence with a newfangled admission saying he might have "unconsciously" gone to the bathroom in the Metal Room!

It was an astonishing, jaw dropping, and spine-tingling admission by Leo M. Frank that left everyone in courtroom gobsmacked, because there was only one set of bathrooms that existed on the second floor and they were located inside the metal room – the real scene of the crime. Leo Frank not only put himself in the metal room where all the forensic evidence suggested Mary Phagan had been murdered, but he put himself in the specific location Jim Conley testified he found the dead body of Mary Phagan.

The newfangled explanation delivered by Leo Frank on August 18, 1913, at 2:45 pm to the judge and jury was considered the equivalent of a murder confession, because the State’s prosecution team spent the entire duration of the four week long trial proving Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room on April 26, 1913, between 12:05 pm and 12:10 pm.

The metal room was down the hall from Leo Frank’s office, and the place Mary Phagan had toiled for more than a year at a wage of 7 and 4/11th cents an hour. The metal room was where Leo Frank went to use the bathroom each and everyday, as he worked down the hall in his second floor office at the front section of the National Pencil Company. When Leo Frank went to the bathroom each day between the years time during the Spring of 1912 and 1913 that Mary Phagan was employed, he had to immediately pass by her work station within a matter of feet, but Leo Frank denied knowing Mary Phagan even at the trial, and it became an incrimin

Along Came Polly

Along Came Polly
Writer-director John Hamburg does everything he can to pair up Ben Stiller’s stiff, safety-first corporate man with Jennifer Aniston’s free spirit in "Along Came Polly," but the two are so fundamentally incompatible that story loses credibility long before the gags stop coming. Without the outrageous, talking-point scenes that broad, post-Farrelly exercises like this depend on, pic will do merely modest date biz in the dead of January, followed by better ancillary biz.
Repping Hamburg’s third project in a row with Stiller (both worked on "Meet the Parents," "Zoolander"), "Polly" is neither as outlandish nor as funny as their previous collaborations. "Polly" is, however, several shades better in all moviemaking departments than Hamburg’s spindly 1998 Sundance debut, "Safe Men."

In addition, the pic’s aces supporting cast — Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alec Baldwin, Debra Messing, Hank Azaria, Bryan Brown, Michele Lee and Bob Dishy — mask the slightness of the odd couple foolery, making many weak scenes click. Their perfs are a testimony to how many fine actors in Hollywood are constantly in search of a good comedy.

Even if his best man Sandy (Hoffman) is prone to falling on his ass, groom Reuben Feffer (Stiller) has a smooth wedding and start to his marriage to Lisa (Messing), capped with a St. Barts honeymoon. But cautious Reuben, ever aware of dangers as a risk assessment analyst for a big insurance firm, begs off a scuba diving venture led by Frenchman Claude (Azaria, initially naked, astoundingly buff and pouring on the mock accent). Later, Reuben discovers Claude and bride Lisa doing the nasty on Claude’s schooner.

Reuben returns to Gotham, where his boss, Stan Indursky (Baldwin, amusingly pitching his voice into a throaty New Yawk register), assigns him to do a full analysis on hot-shot Aussie CEO Leland Van Lew (Brown) to see if he’s insurable.

Meanwhile, best friend Sandy drags Reuben along to an art gallery opening where Reuben encounters Polly (Aniston), who’s serving drinks.

Between his inept way of approaching her and her borderline-insane indecisiveness, it’s a miracle that they get together for a date — but they do, at a Moroccan restaurant, which Reuben agrees to, even though he can’t handle spicy food and has irritable bowel syndrome. Date literally ends in the bathroom of her sloppy downtown flat, shared with her blind ferret, with the floodgates opened to a wave of poop, fart and miscellaneous fluid jokes. Despite their horrific first date, Polly actually calls up Reuben for second go-round — this time in an Indian restaurant where they happen to run into his parents Vivian and Irving (Lee, Dishy), and where Polly learns about Reuben’s marriage-on-the-rocks. Not all of the above, and not even the fact that Reuben can’t handle Polly’s favorite hobby, salsa dancing, stops them from making love and then regularly seeing each other.

Though obstacles are de rigeur in this kind of comic formula, the ones applied in "Along Came Polly" have the effect of reminding viewers of how unrealistic the pairing of Reuben and Polly is. While it’s plausible that Reuben would want to loosen up a bit to attract Polly (which he does, taking salsa lessons with Polly’s handsome and gay dance buddy Javier, played by Jsu Garcia), there’s never any reason why a gypsy-style gal would have the time of day for such an uptight nerd.

When the ultimate obstacle pops up — Lisa having the gall to return and ask Reuben to have her back — Hamburg’s script clearly has no way out of its own situational cul-de-sac. Although the gags keep constantly rolling along, many wilt through sheer repetition (Sandy’s horrific approach to playing basketball, Van Lew’s crazed behavior) or through never quite realizing their full potential (a too-brief one with Stiller mishandling an art gallery sculpture is like a case of Jerry Lewis interruptus).

Stiller brings only a portion of the nervous and physical energy he essayed for "Parents" or "Zoolander" or, for that matter, the dreadful "Duplex," helmed by Danny DeVito (who, with his now-divorced Jersey Films partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher, produced "Polly"). Aniston does the job of playing a woman who’s used to her own chaotic life, but she never looks like she’s having fun in the role.

Supporting clowns, on the other hand, give the movie what kick it has. Though his character is tangential to almost anything in pic, Hoffman revels in playing a frustrated former teen movie star experiencing hard times. Baldwin and Azaria create full-blown characters out of what are basically glorified cameo spots, while Brown frolics as a bull in a china shop.

Pic looks and sounds as good as any recent Hollywood comedy, distinguished by Seamus McGarvey’s crystalline lensing, Andrew Laws’ well-observed design and a bouncy but not overly emphatic score by Theodore Shapiro.

Behavior Analysis, Education, and Effective Schooling
The American government makes a great case for being interested in education and claims to take great pains to ‘leave no child behind.’ Current education-system enhancement strategies emphasize testing and accountability and focus on rewarding or penalizing teachers whose students make statistical headway at exam time. But little is offered to teachers in the way of new, better skills to make their teaching more effective.
In Behavior Analysis, Education, and Effective Schooling, four leaders in the field of education-related applied behavior analysis, spell out a case for implementing curricular materials and instructional methods that research has shown to be effective in any classroom at any level. The concise survey includes chapters on achieving educational success, educational theory, schools and schooling. It discusses instructional strategies, classroom management, assessing academic performance, teacher training, and educational myths-all from an applied behavior-analytic point of view.
