Kinesthetic sympathy

Kinesthetic sympathy is the state of having an emotional attachment to an object when it is in hand which one does not have when it is out of sight. The concept of kinesthetic sympathy is associated with a dance critic, he introduced it in a New York Times article that discussed how the audience members respond to movements of the dancers on stage. Such response is said to transpire subconsciously. According to Martin, "when we see a human body moving, we see movement, producible by any human body and therefore by our own." This link allows humans to reproduce the movement in their present muscular experience and awaken its connotations as if the perceived movement was their own. What this means is that an individual - through kinesthetic sympathy - could perform movements that are beyond his body's capacities. Kinesthetic sympathy is linked to the concept of kinesthetic empathy, which pertains to the embodied experience of movement emotion. In 2003, a study was conducted by the National Study Group On Chronic Disorganization, the purpose of, to collect data on the effectiveness of using special techniques with clients to avoid kinesthetic sympathy.

Organizers working with chronically disorganized clients at their desks were asked to use the kinesthetic sympathy avoidance process by asking their respective clients to hold a mug, drinking glass, or plastic or metal tumbler as a distracting device while working together. The survey was meant to see if, by holding a solid "distraction" item, the client would exhibit less noticeable kinetic sympathy and, have a more successful paper processing session; the survey achieved mixed results.

List of current mixed martial arts champions

Mixed martial arts is a form of competitive combat sport, akin to boxing, muay thai, or kick boxing. MMA titles, or championship belts, are given to those fighters deemed by a promotional organization to have met a certain standard of athletic accomplishment in a specific weight class. Championship belts are fought for at each weight class under a promotion, with only one belt awarded per class; each belt is contested every time the belt holder fights, passed to the victor of that fight. A belt may be vacated when a fighter is suspended. At such times an interim champion may be crowned, or the belt may be awarded to the winner of a fight between top contenders; this list displays all title holders for the certified MMA promoting and sanctioning bodies. There is no clear industry definition within the MMA community to determine which organizations are considered major promoting bodies. Due to a lack of clear guidelines, this list is limited to those organizations that are either regarded, long standing, or the dominant organizations of a country or region of the world.

Because there is no international unified MMA weight class system in use, the Nevada State Athletic Commission's weight classes have been adopted for this article as they are most common across major promotions. Some organizations have created titles in weight classes outside the NSAC guidelines; those titles will be recognized as subdivisions under their common weight class. Though unofficial, Fight Matrix considered the first MMA lineal champions as follows: Heavyweight – Ken Shamrock beginning October 14, 1993 at Pancrase: Yes, We Are Hybrid Wrestlers 2 Light heavyweight – Frank Shamrock beginning December 21, 1997 at UFC Japan: Ultimate Japan. MiddleweightKenji Kawaguchi beginning May 18, 1989 at Shooto: Shooto. WelterweightYasuto Sekishima beginning January 13, 1990 at Shooto: Shooto. Lightweight – Yuichi Watanabe beginning January 13, 1990 at Shooto: Shooto. FeatherweightNoboru Asahi beginning March 27, 1992 at Shooto: Shooto. BantamweightKazuhiro Sakamoto beginning October 19, 1989 at Shooto: Shooto.

FlyweightKenji Ogusu beginning March 27, 1992 at Shooto: Shooto. Although the inaugural lineal champions are sometimes contested at heavyweight. Organizations are listed by a combination of their history. Title holders from other organizations, who are now fighting in the UFC, are not included in this list as the UFC does not cross promote and these belts are vacated. Women athletes are smaller than, compete at lower weights than their male counterparts.

Dawes Hicks

George Dawes Hicks FBA was a British philosopher, the first Professor of Moral Philosophy at University College, London from 1904 until 1928 and professor emeritus thereafter until his death. Hicks, eldest son of solicitor Christopher Hicks, was born in Shrewsbury on 14 September 1862 and educated at the Royal Grammar School, Guildford He went on to study law within his father's legal practice. Hicks went, in 1884, to Owens College Manchester to study philosophy, he did so under Robert Adamson "whose philosophical scholarship and acuteness exercised the most radical and lasting effect upon his. Pupil's life and teaching". Hicks graduated in 1888 with first class honours. Hicks went to Manchester College and followed the lectures of Wallace, Nettleship. and Cook Wilson. Elected a Hibbert Scholar 1891–96, Hicks did further research at the University of Leipzig under Wundt and Volelt and assisted Meumann in his experimental investigations on apprehension of time. Hicks advanced his earlier studies in physiology but concentrated his greater efforts on a detailed textual study of Kant.

He gained his PhD at Leipzig in 1896 with a thesis on Kant, to be published the following year. On his return from Germany in 1897 Hicks became minister of Unity Church in Islington until 1903, lectured for the London School of Ethics and Sociology. In 1904 he was made Litt. D. by Manchester University and was appointed to the Chair of Moral Philosophy. At University College, London. Hicks was the first person to fill the position which had lain vacant since UCL first advertised for two Chairs in philosophy in 1827. Carveth Read the Grote Professor of Mind and Logic, as Jonathan Wolff reports, persuaded the College to make such an appointment and thus fulfill "for the first time the original conception of the Department". During his time at UCL, Hicks continued to live, at least in Cambridge where he lectured at the university, under the auspices of the Faculty of Moral Science, on Psychology and on the Philosophy of Kant, he "as a labour of love" gave annual lectures at Carmarthen College which were to be published in 1928 under the title "Ways towards the Spiritual Life".

S. V. Keeling describes Hicks as being, as a teacher "a man of single-mind, wholly engrossed in philosophy". Keeling reports that Hicks believed that philosophy "as no other subject, could impart to.. Students an influence and a training such as would render them habitually reflective about their existence and destiny". Hicks "ever saw that the spiritual value of philosophical studies far outweighed their academic importance" but denied "that philosophy could legitimately serve as a substitute for religion or for religious faith". Hick's significant efforts and influence as a teacher at UCL are testified to by Keeling, de Burgh and Stebbing alike and reported on by Wolf. Having been secretary of the Aristotelian Society for many years, Hicks was made its president in 1913 and was elected a fellow of the British Academy in 1927, he retired from UCL the following year and thereafter lived in Cambridge but continued his long serving work as a sub-editor of the Hibbert Journal to his sick bed and, as Stebbing reports, "was writing his famous'Philosophical Survey' for that Journal when death came, rather at the end" on 16 January 1941.
