...Gender Dominance Grip Strength
Grip strength can be used in determining the effectiveness of the different
treatment strategies or procedures. Grip strength test provide and objective index of the
strength of the upper extremities. (Singapore Med J 2002 Vol. 43) Studies have
attempted to determine the differences in strength of left or right hand preference as well
as dominant or non-dominant preference. Crosby et. Al investigated normative values of
significant differences between dominant and non dominant hands. In their study, hand
grip strengths of the dominant hand were six percent higher than non dominant hand.
An experiment will be conducted to determine grip strength. The more upper
body strength a person possess the greater grip strength will result. Manual labor also
play an important part in the grip strength determination. Males usually work in more
exertive field which require greater strength than women. It is predicted that the hand
grip strength will be greater with the dominant hand rather than the non-dominant hand.
However, it is further predicted that men will have a greater grip strength in compared to

Grip and Arm Strength
Occupational health professionals consistently document the need for physical testing upon application for physically-demanding jobs. Decades of studies suggest that physical fitness screening prior to job selection decreases workplace injuries. Many of these studies prove specifically that a direct correlation exists between one’s strength and job performance. This case study examines such a claim. It is an analysis of the impact arm strength (ARM) and hand grip (GRIP) have on workers’ performance on the job (SIMS). So, can job performance be predicted linearly by a combination of grip strength and arm strength? Therefore, the dependent variable work/job performance is determined by independent variables grip strength and arm strength. The variable that is believed to be of more importance is the arm strength.
Is being physically strong still important in today's workplace? In our current high-tech world one might be inclined to think that only skills required for computer work such as reading, reasoning, abstract thinking, etc., are important for performing well in many of today's jobs. There are still, however, a number of very important jobs that require, in addition to cognitive skills, a significant amount of strength to be able to perform at a high level. Take, for example, the job of a...

“Getting a Grip on Handgun Hype”
In her essay “Why Handguns Must Be Outlawed,” Nan Desuka brings for the issue whether handguns should be outlawed except to police and other service units. I disagree with Desuka’s position on banning handguns. This essay offers arguments why they should be banned without offering realistic solutions to the problems Desuka states in owning handguns. Retaining legalized handguns affects all of us. It’s essential to Collectors and sportsmen, and vital to all our safety. I do not believe that banning handguns will overall decrease violent crimes or the deaths due to violent crimes.
Desuka is in favor of the banning of handguns except for police and other service units. The arguments she addresses are “about 3,000 accidental deaths occur each year by handguns” (4). “Victims of handguns know their assailant well” such as “Women killed by jealous husbands or lovers, drinking buddies who get into arguments or disgruntled employees” (3). Desuka also notes, 90 percent of burglaries occur when no one is at home, so “the guns get lifted along with the jewelry” and 40 percent of those handguns used in crime are stolen (5,6). Desuka contends that “violent crimes would surely decrease for a youth armed with a knife is less likely to rob a store than if he is armed with a gun” (7). Furthermore, the 42 percent of murders...
The Grip of Gangs on Low Income Children
Gangs are fully entrenched in many suburban communities across the nation. Gangs are a dangerous and a plague that has infected almost every city in the United States. Many notable gangs such as the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples, Black Peace Stones, and Latin Kings are the root of this epidemic. At this time gang activity was largely confined to urban areas, which raises a huge problem with the recruitment of the youth of this nation into gangs littered with murders and drug dealers. This problem has gone on for decades and the real issue isn’t the gang violence the real issue is the recruiting of children from low income families into these gangs. Kids from low income communities feel like they have no way out of the gang because of the gripping reins of socioeconomics holding them back. We are so disgusted when we hear about children in Africa that are forced to hold a gun and go to war, but that is what is happening here on American soil. This should be a top priority among citizens to stop this recruitment of children into gang warfare.
Throughout the 1970s urban gangs became better organized and began to expand their activities into surrounding low income communities. This expansion just makes gangs more of a danger to low income kids. Egley and Howell found out that “There were approximately 28,100 active gangs across 3,500 jurisdictions in 2009 according to law enforcement estimates. This...

3M’s Greptile Grip Technology Case
3M’s Sports and Leisure Products business unit took an existing technology, 3M’s “micro-replication” and applied it to a golf glove. 3M has enjoyed great success from combining the “micro-replication” with high quality Cabretta sheep leather to create a high quality golfing glove that is second to none being offered on the market. Since the introduction of the 3M Greptile Grip golf glove there has been a large influx of competitors who offer a similar technology in the golf market. Although the global market for golf gloves is estimated at $300 million with 60 percent or $180 million in the United States. The problem is mass merchandisers have increased their share of the market over the past year. With companies such as Nike, Titleist, and FootJoy offering product’s that focus on technology and comfort that differentiate their golfing gloves from competitor’s gloves on the market. 3M has a reputation for innovation; the Greptile Grip Technology is in the growth stage of the product life cycle. So 3M must find ways to promote future growth of this technology, this leaves two questions for 3M: (1) what other applications do I envision for the Greptile technology within the sports and leisure market? (2) What new market applications (outside of sports and leisure) do you envision for the Greptile grip...
...A great schism was created between eastern and western Europe due to certains events and changes. Two of the major events that caused this schism were the Iconoclastic controversy and Fourth Crusade. Its major effects were between eastern and western churches in which some still exist today.
Rome was too distant to control the emperor or the church in the eastern empire. This caused the Eastern church to create new ways to worship and even create and develop their own calendar. Since eastern church did not have much influence from the western church they created Holy Icons which became part of their daily religious rituals. This caused an event called the Iconoclastic controversy. It was a controversy within the church due to eastern church worshiping idols. The western church saw this was too close to pagan rituals, rome felt. The holy roman emperor, Leo III sent people to break churches and destroy the icons. Eastern church argued they can not do that as they felt they were the first christians. Eventually the icons were restored due to Theodora, regent of heir to the throne Michael II. This restoration of the icons led up to fist sunday of lent. Which is still celebrated today as a feast of “triumph of orthodoxy”. This caused ideological differences which still exist today. The pope, latin word which is the leader of Christianity and Patriarch, greek word who is the leader of the eastern orthodox church. Another effect after the controversy that...

...IME549 – Industrial Ergonomics
Grip/Pinch Strength Lab Exercise
Introduction: Physical Ergonomics is the science and study of using appropriate work postures to reduce the strain on workers which in return will maximize productivity. This grip strength experiment measures the maximum grip strength capability and EMG generated between the neutral and flexed wrist position as well as between genders. The goal is to show how posture affects force capability, which affects worker performance as well as corresponding muscle activity. Therefore hand tool and job design should be designed accordingly as to maximize production.
