1. Statements about this site:


(ii). Thinking on taking one of Dr. Leon James' courses? If so, you must link onto this file to get acquainted to his teaching techniques. This link states three psychology courses that Dr. Leon James teaches at University of Hawaii at Manoa. The three courses that he focuses on are Traffic Psychology, Cyber-Psychology, and Spiritual Psychology. Within each course subheading, there is a brief description on what his current and previous students' homepages have to offer. Basically, this file is an introduction to what Dr. Leon Jame's courses are all about.

(iii). What I found useful about this file is that it breifly explains what Dr. Leon Jame's classes have to offer (like a syllabus). But what I found more interesting is how he can relate his psychology courses into a computer course. He puts his students through a challenge to navigate through the entire cyberspace and to publish their papers on the World Wide Web (WWW). In this case, students learn to be computer literate, and they overcome their fear of technophobia. At the same time, students touch the subjects that deal with psychology.



2. Addresses:


(ii). This link is very basic where it states Dr. Leon James' (formerly known as Leon Jakobovits) University of Hawaii at Manoa's office address, his e-mail address, and his home and office telephone numbers in case anyone would like to contact him.

(iii). This link can be very useful to students who are in need to contact Dr. Leon James for an emergency question or excuse. I think that it is great to have a professor who seems open and willing to be contacted by students who needs his help any hour of the day. Thank you Dr. Leon James!



3. Indexes for this site:


(ii). What a file! This file will lead you to a wide variety of links that deal with Traffic Psychology, Personality Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, etc...that students of Dr. Leon James' experienced. Dr. Leon James lists five options for finding things on this site, they are 1) Index of Documents (by Leon James), 2) List of Full Text Articles and Books (by Leon James), 3) Index on All Documents on this Site, 4) Search this Site by Keywords, Concepts, or Names, or 5) Subject Index. Some subject topics that were listed ranged from Abortion and Sexual Abuse, After Life and Personality, Alzeheimers and Drivers, Pedestian Behavior, Personality of Pets, and much, much more exciting and deep topics.

(iii). I was in aw when I linked onto this page. Overwhelmed is a better word to describe my first reaction when I saw all the links listed one after the other. I definately recommend you to scroll along this file and read the wide variety of interesting Psychology topics that previous students of Dr. Leon James wrote. Some of them are hilarious and very sarcastic. For instance, click onto "Alzheimers and Drivers", this person added some jokes and riddles to catch people's attention. Check out this file and see what interests you.



4. List of Publications (by Leon James):


(ii). What an amazing professor. Not only does Dr. Leon James teach Traffic, Cyber-Space, and Spiritual Psychology, he has also published uku billions of books and articles. Since 1960 till 1996, Dr. Leon James (formerly known as Leon A. Jakobovits) has published books and articles individually and with other authors such as W.E. Lambert, R. Kanungo, D. Steinberg, and even his wife D. Nahl-Jakobovits. Some topics that his articles cover are research strategies, studies in the second language, social psychology, adopting to the internet, church life, human behavior, speech and hearing disorders, cognitive psychology, and more...Dr. Leon James sure has experienced and accomplished a lot through the years. Congratulations Dr. Leon James!

(iii). Again I was in aw. I did not know that Dr. Leon James has published so much articles and books. He sure put a lot of his time into publishing 30, 40, 50+ articles in 36 years (Amazing!). This page could be useful to those who are interested in certain topics that I mentioned earlier. But one thing that surprised me was that Dr. Leon James did not write as much articles on Traffic Psychology as I would assumed. I mean coming from "Dr. Driver", I thought he would have published his own articles on his experiences and ideas on coming up with Traffic Psychology. But other than that, amazing accomplishments to Dr. Leon James.



5. Student Generational Reports:


(ii). This file called Ethnography of an Academic Cyber-Community: The Hawaii Generational Curriculum Project is very similar to the first link Statements about this site. Compared to the first link where Dr. Leon James briefly describes the course outline of his three Psychology on-line courses, this link states what you will find on his Traffic Psychology, Cyber-Psychology, and Daily Round Archieves students' reports. You will be aware of how the internet came about in Dr. Leon James' courses. Since 1981, Traffic Psychology students used self-witnessing reports to gain understanding on driving behaviors. Then in 1994, Cyber-Psychology came about, and students gained hands-on experience by surfing the World Wide Web (WWW) and typing their reports on-line instead of on paper. Now students have the ability to see previous works from other generations on the internet. For those of you who would like to see the typed paper work from students between 1975-1993 can contact Diane Nahl, for she has kept them all bounded up as a library collection.
Dr. Leon James also includes links to three articles of the generational curriculum projects, which are 1) introduction to the community classroom generational curriculum, 2) creating an on-line learning environment, and 3) generational community classroom projects given to a faculty group. These articles focuses on the history of the projects, its theory, and the special benefits it provides to students in terms of writing literacy and critical thinking.

(iii). Surfing into the three articles of the generational curriculum projects seemed very useful for students who are entering in any of Dr. Leon James' courses because they thoroughly explain about the projects he has created. He mentions when and how the projects got started, lists his goals and benefits for the classroom techniques and assignments, and provides more links to help students get started. If you are confused on what Dr. Leon James' courses are all about, click onto this link now.



6. Swedenborg's Homepage Hawaii:


(ii). Interested in searching through Emanuel Swedenborg's Homepage? Want to see his fascinating work and ideas about spiritual and natural concepts? Click onto this file to see what Swedenborg has to offer his visitors. There are several sub-sections that lists more links to topics such as life after death, conjugal love, spiritual genes in marriage, and more about spiritual psychology. The sub-sections provided are 1) Swedenborg Glossary (by Leon James) that lists topics from Spiritual Marriage and Growth, and Spiritual Psychology and Science, 2) Swedenborg Resources in Cyberspace that lists Full Text Articles (by Leon James) , and more Homepages from Swedenborg. The best part of this file is that you can read what others feel about his ideas, or better yet you can put in your two cent by clicking onto What Other's Say. Try it and enjoy!

(iii). Hurry! Click on to this file and get acquainted to Swedenborg's interesting theories and ideas. I found Swedenborg's Homepage exciting. Best of all, I liked reading the visiors' reactions to his understanding in spiritual psychology. Swedenborg had a lot to say about life after death and about religion which, I must say, made me think twice. And the other visitors had some good questions to point out about love and marriage. Who has the right answers, I ask? Are there any right or wrong answers? I don't know...love is a strong, yet confusing word.



7. Dr. Driving Says... (Road Rage and Aggressive Driving):


(ii). Do you ever find yourself wanting to scream and b-tch at the driver who just cut you off and never waved thank you, or tails your a-- for no reason, or even drives too slow on the left lane? If this description sounds like you, you should take the time to surf this file. Dr. Leon James has published on-line some excellent advice on road rage and hassle-free driving from a Traffic Psychology point of view. He presents a warm and welcoming "aloha" to those who visit his site. He wants everyone to realize the importance of driving with a safe and positive attitude, rather than a rushing and negative attitude. Some sub-topics listed on this site are 1) update on what's the latest with media interviews on road rage, aggressive drivers, and defensive drivers, 2) update dealing with aggressive drivers and road rage, 3) Dr. Drivings page of random acts of kindness, 4) radio and magazine interviews on understanding the personalities of aggressive drivers (why it happens, and what to do), 5) a three-step program to a healthier and more zestful driving, and other informative sections to look upon. You will also have the opportunity to again, read other visitors' attitudes toward aggressive drivers, or you can put in your own reactions to some road rage driving, or even help out others by typing in your ideas of resolving aggressive driving. So if you are wondering how to overcome road rage, click on to this page. I promise you it will be well worth it.

(iii). This is a very informative and excellent file for everyone to read, whether you are a driver or a passenger. It can help people to understand the aggressive attitudes that drivers tend to have once they get behind the wheel. I found this whole page interesting because it dealt with an attentive topic that I could relate to. I do not feel that I am an aggressive driver, but I sure know a lot of friends who could benefit from reading this file.



8. Explore This Site With Tour Guides:


(ii). This file takes visitors on a tour to previous generations' reports and experiences. The first page will display three tours made up by generation 3 (G3) students, Calvin Cheung and Darin Kawamoto. The three tours consists of 1) Introduction for Newbies, 2) Topics on the Daily Round Archives, and 3) Nutrition and Exericise Papers. Here people are able to choose their route of exploring.
Taking the route to Tour 1 consisted of earlier generations Traffic Psychology and Cyber-Psychology reports. Links were made to any student that has taken Dr. Leon James' courses. Tour 2 consisted of a format of the Data Base for the Psychology papers. Again many of the links went back to previous students' reports. And Tour 3 consisted of Nutrition and Exercise topics that dealt with stress, overweight problems, dieting, disorders, and healthy habits. This page had links to outside peoples' articles, (not previous students from Dr. Leon James), that discussed common problems that everyone, or most people, face with maintaining a healthy body.

(iii). This tour guide page could be helpful to those who would like an easier way to search Dr. Leon James' previous generation's reports. I found that the first two tours, made up by Calvin Cheung, were basically the same in a sense where they all link to the student's reports and homepages. If you have the time to scroll along his tour you should check it out because he did an awesome job in linking every generations together. And you can see some cool icons that students presented on their homepages. Out of the three tours available, I really enjoyed the third tour on Nutrition and Exercise by Darin Kawamoto. This page was very interesting to read because he got various articles on nutrition, dieting, stress, and all sorts of topics that all related to a healthy image or a healthy body. The links to this page is listed all in orderly fashion that makes it easier for visitors to search along. I recommend those that worry about having and keeping a healthy body to click onto this file, it's well worth it!



9. Traffic Psychology:


(ii). If you are an aggressive and wreckless driver, I recommend that you click onto this page ASAP. You will be focusing on the three informative information. First, the Principles of Traffic Psychology will explain the overviews, origins, benefits, and procedures to Traffic Psychology. Second, the Taxonomy of Driving Behavior will talk about the affective, cognitive, and sensorimotor attitudes that people display when they drive on the roads. Third, the Self-Witnessing Methodology for Driving Personality Makeovers will display a chart on two stages of driving persona makeover with regards to your affective, cognitive, and sensorimotor behavior. The first stage consists of becoming a reformed driver, and the second stage consists of becoming a facilitator driver. Check out this page and see how you can become a safer driver.

(iii). I feel that this page has a lot of useful and important informations on learning to be a healthy driver. Although some people will never change the way that they drive, they can at least test out the possibilites in changing their attitudes once they get behind the wheel. I do not think that people realize how aggressive they can get while driving. They feel this strength in power to just take charge without respect for others. But perhaps after reading this file, visitors could be more aware of their attitude and be more cautious to themselves and their fellow drivers. We do not want to add another number to the 50,000 deaths a year nation wide from car collisions. That is just too ridiculous.



10. Cyber-Psychology:


(ii). This file presents the "Principles of Creating Virtual Presence". There are a table of contents that links to topics such as "The Hyper in Hypertext", "Cyberspace & Mind", "Virtual Reality", "Communal Mind", etc...and much more topics that deals with Cyper-Psychology. Dr. Leon James briefly explains what each topic focuses on, including definitions, and origins to the situations. Basically visitors who click onto this page will see how Cyberspace is becoming a part of our everyday lives. They will realize how Cyberspace is a valuable mode of communication to the world and that technology is just growing and growing.

(iii). What a file. Technology is just hitting us day by day with new and improved systems. After skimming through this page I was just shocked at how fast technology is moving. I mean how is it possible that we are able to use electronic mail (e-mail) to people around the world, and they get their mail within minutes? Those of you who click on to this page will be amazed at what the world is coming to. It is quite interesting to read about Cyberspace and Cyber-Psychology, but do not get confused by the technological words, because I did.



11. Spiritual Psychology:


(ii). This file consists of three parts to the Spiritual Psychology article, and another article on Spiritual Psychobiology. Some topics included on this page are "Human Body as Micro-Cosmos", "Relationship Heaven and Hell", "Spiritual Temptations", etc...not to mention more influences from Swedenborg's writings. Basically, the purpose of this site leaned on influencing people to realize the world that they live in and the forces that influence them.

(iii). I found this site to be full of interesting concepts and information on psychological factors on spiritual relationships. Are we to believe that there is life after death? Or are there forces around us that influences our life? If anyone is interested in this subject, you should click onto this link. (Beware...It is very long!)



12. Daily Round Archives (DRA):


(ii). This site talks about the Daily Round Archives (DRA) from the Generational 499 projects that has been a collection of bound volumes that were not published on-line. Students had access to read previous students reactions to certain topics as they understand it and talk about its significance. They described various problems to solve and came up with useful advice for the future generations. Some issues that they faced were nutrition, dieting, exercising, abortion, dreaming, etc...all sorts of situations to look further upon.

(iii). I think that this site had useful advice to help future generations. Visitors could surely benefit from scrolling along this file to see what daily life problems they face and how to deal with overcoming the problem. I, again, enjoyed reading Darin Kawamoto's site about the nutrition and exercising topics because it can help one to be a healthy person. Another great site about nutrition is Michelle Alonzo's page. Check them out!



13. Social Psychology of Homepage Architecture:


(ii). This is a page that everyone, especially Dr. Leon James' students, should look while starting and constructing a homepage. It is said that homepages are the attention to viewers to land on your site. You want visitors to admire your work and feel welcomed to your site. Catch their attentions by using huge letters, bright colors, and simple, but eye-catching titles. In order to make a homepage as beautiful and organized as possible, you will need to put a lot of time and effort to complete your home. "The internet is one giant file-sharing system", so take the opportunity to visit other homepages and get wonderful ideas off of them.

(iii). Students who are taking Dr. Leon James classes could surely benefit from reading this site. They will get informed on how important homepages are, and of what use they can do, and how to construct a well organized and admirable page, and so forth. I realized that technology can be very simple if you take the time and patience to learn and adopt to it. Just as any other new task, it takes practice to make perfect. Perhaps that is the reason why my files are coming out late, because I take the time to organize my thoughts. (yeah right:) ).



14. Full Text Articles and Books (by Leon James):


(ii). This site proves how talented Dr. Leon James is. Here you will see the huge assortment of full text articles and books that has been published within the years. Along with the linked titles of the articles published there are brief abstracts to each title to describe what the book or article is about.

(iii). This is a useful site for those who would like to see certain articles or books that Dr. Leon James published. Unlike the List of Publications site that only lists the articles in bibliographic form, this site offers a brief introduction about the article or book. This makes it easier for students to scroll along and pick the article he/she would like to view.



15. Diane Nahl's Search Index:


(ii). Ms. Diane Nahl has some informative links to various sites. For instance, she has links to topics such as Library & Information Science Sites, Student Papers, and even Fun Sites that include weather forcast, gardening advice, internet courses, etc...Oh, and I forgot to mention many links to search engines and search sites. She has put in her time and two cents to help others step by step on how to search the World Wide Web (WWW). If you are a beginner on the internet, this site could be informative to guide you through the web.

(iii). I felt Ms. Diane Nahl's page was interesting to skim along because she puts in her reactions to certain search engines. And she does not make you feel alone for she takes you on a step by step observation of her own experience.



16. University Of Hawaii:


(ii). The University of Hawaii at Manoa Homepage is a useful page for those students at the campus, and interesting for those students just surfing the web. This site has informative links to Administrative Services, Information Technology, Library & Reference Tools, Leisure Activities, News, Weather, & Events, and much more sites that go along with the University. Included in this file are public and media relations, the general UH system overview, campus locations, and faculty & staff phone directory, that can help service the students. Having a homepage for the University is a wonderful idea because it can inform students on what the campus is like and what are available to the students.

(iii). I found this page quite useful for students to browse on because it applies to almost every activity available on campus. Not only is this site useful for students attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa, but it can also be useful for those who plan to transfer to UHM or those who are just looking around at different college campus. I feel it gives the students more information quicker rather than asking around campus. And you figure, if you do not see information that you need, you can always e-mail to the University. How convenient!



17. Search This Site by Keywords, Concepts, or Names:


(ii). This is the "Search for the University of Hawaii College of Social Sciences Web Course/Project Web Site" that helps students or visitors to search for specific keywords, concepts, or names to a file easily. Whenever students need to look up a topic on the World Wide Web (WWW), they can simply type in the keywords to upload the various sites, rather than keep linking on to site after site for certain informations.

(iii). This site can be very useful to those who want to get to different sites faster. It can also benefit those who forget addresses to certain courses or projects assigned.



18. For Earlier or Text Only Browsers:


(ii). This site is a general table of contents of Dr. Leon James's Homepage Site in Hawaii. Here you will find a list of 17 different links to the sites I just previously mentioned above, plus a chance to e-mail Dr. Leon James with any questions, comments, or suggestions. Take a chance and link onto this page.

(iii). To me, I feel this page serves no purpose because Dr. Leon James's Homepage has links to these various files already. I guess for those who like to see table of contents in every homepage would be satisfied with this site. But what is basically does is links to the same topics and sites that are shown on Dr. Leon James's Homepage.
