    1. Understandings of material culture have been central to anthropology since its inception; during the late 19th and early 20th century anthropologists primarily collected material culture (Kroeber, Boas) that was displayed in museums in Europe and North America

      Items discovered by Anthropologist could possibly bring forth how they lived, died, or how their society functioned for instance when Anthropologists unearth ancient tools such as spearheads.

      I am examining this text in conjunction with Haltman's "Introduction to American Artifacts". I chose this text because of the fact that its rationale is similar to Haltman's. Haltman's rationale, that artifacts and items and other physical elements all bear a certain cultural meaning to them and that through a structured process, one can grasp the aspects associated with that item.

    3. nstead, culture and society are seen as being created and reproduced by the ways in which people make, design, and interact with objects. It also challenges the assumption, perpetuated by disciplinary divisions and also philosophical trajectories, that the object and subject are separate, wherein the latter is assumed to be immaterial, and the former is assumed to be inert and passive.

      Sophie Woodman establishes her stance that this preconceived notion is nothing but false. Artifacts and objects alike can have a multitude of meanings and underlying cultural aspects that exist within that object. Haltman himself though has vouched that the process of recognizing these aspects take repetitious action and a thorough game plan.

    1. “move-ment culture”; undercutting depictions of leftist movements as inward-focusing echo chambers, he claims that the power of any movement “lies in its ability to sustain, inspire, and console its adherents” (67). Denning identifies the interconnected networks

      I would argue this is still the case today - a movement requires a network/ an interconnection of individuals and/or organizations with a similar cause to 'sustain, inspire, and console'

    2. a consideration of radical print networks might do better to eschew such individualist orien-tations, although the modes of connection in terms of social relations and mise-en-page are still valid ways of tracing that network

      Why would they argue this case - that radical print networks would do better individually as opposed to in collaboration and connection with other networks?

    3. This format shift shows a greater concern with intertextuality and promotion of other cldl print materials: the December 1931 issue contains the first notice of forthcoming pamphlets

      Interesting... do you think that publications today demonstrate promotion of other materials/ publications? I'm not sure I can think of any examples where this is paralleled in contemporary publishing.

    1. But what the data shows is we know if we're looking at test scores, if we're measuring the achievement gap, which is the test score gap between black and white students, that gap was the narrowest at the peak of integration in the school integration, which was 1988. As soon as we start to see the segregation increasing again, that achievement gap increases. And we've actually never gotten back to that low point that we were at when schools were their most integrated.

    1. What contemporary object can be both a tool and a weapon, like the machete? Communication technologies like cell phones might serve as one candidate, especially in light of their application during the “Arab Spring.” But can the iPhone ever bear the same gravitas as the machete? Is silicon the new steel? Information has been a part of every arsenal, revolutionary or otherwise. Still, it’s hard to imagine driving a smartphone into a body “down to the Apple.”

      The writer brings a more modern and relatable point of view into the the mix. Since in this day in age almost everybody in America has a smartphone it makes it more easier for the readers to understand the point he is trying to make. Then brings up a controversial point of Arab terrorist using smart phones to act out violence. A entirely different but similar view to take based on the machete argument. It strengthens his claims, the more some isolates different realms of reason the more the topic can handled more circumspectly. (Haltman 7). He broadens his horizons by presented a more relatable topic to the audience instead of just sticking to just a provincial topic of farming tool and weaponry.

    2. But within the context of contemporary politics this minor event points toward a larger and more pressing concern: as the old manual trades die away, what symbols do we have to convey a sense of collective identity as laborers within the machinery of capitalism?

      Another personal aspect of the writer personal life to further his argument. Growing up farming this cultural portrayal of machetes as weapons undermines his identity. A traditionalist view on the matter shows that the culture that the writer grew up in is being over taken by a violent and terror fantasia that is infecting the the idealism of his identity. He is also trying to gain sympathy with the audience, portraying his old livelihood being destroyed in front of his every eyes. Using pathos to persuade his audience of this cultural take over.

    3. While it’s foolish to assign coherent political meaning to Rodriguez’s film, it cannot be denied that the machete is a powerful symbol of violent, popular revolt, a tool/weapon freighted with centuries of significance.

      Media shapes culture, culture shapes society, and society can shape politics. It is cultural examples such as these that really show how influential media can be. Especially in movies that glorify tools to be weapons. Haltman states that there are metaphysical aspect that embody culture.

    4. However, one thing remains constant: those who use it as a tool in their daily lives are also the most likely to turn to it as a weapon, because it is often the only option available to the slave, the peasant, or the proletariat within the agricultural regions of the tropics.

      The writer bring in the view of revolt which runs deep in American culture since really the foundation of America was based on revolutions. This article was most likely published to feature an American audience so by bridging its emotional and cultural history is a great persuasive tactic. Though it never explicitly said revolts the use of slaves and pheasants using machetes as a weapon can imply such. The writer is trying to discretely imply this notion to the reader in order to make them think and have a deeper and more personal connection with the topic.

    5. A story like Walker’s illustrates why the machete so well captures the problem of the tool vs. the weapon. This simple object is imbued with enormous symbolic political power, because its practical value can never be isolated from its violent potential.

      Object can signify any form of history, culture or emotion depending on how it presented. As Haltman puts it the views on objects can be potentially limitless but why do some views have more significance than the others. Well it all comes down to the culture of it. A recent bate on gun violence have surged popular media both main and social. Historically in America guns were used as a point of self-defense and a balance of power but recent tragedies in Parkland and Las Vegas and any other mass shooting in America has depicted them as killing machines. As practical as a "tool" maybe the cultural significance will always tip the scale to what society depicts it to be.

    6. This fusion of tool and weapon cropped up again and again during my childhood. In the third grade, I encountered a word in a Hardy Boy’s book, Footprints Under the Window, which I’d never seen before: machete. I quickly realized from the descriptions that a machete was essentially the same thing as a “corn knife.” Much of the book’s action takes place on a fictional Spanish-speaking island called “Baredo.”

      It amazing to think that a simple farming tool used for corn can become the embodiment for killing and terror. The machete is not the only " tool" this is happened to. The ever so famous ninjas of Japan were actually simple farming tools before the iconized as weapon for Asia most notorious assassins. Small katana were used for slicing crops but have become a trademark weapon for the group. And even scythes that were used for cutting down wheat plants has become culturally a symbol of death held by the grim reaper to rip the souls out of the living. It just goes to show that an object can have two polar ideas based on culture and significance.

    7. Looking at the cover now, it’s hard not to notice that one of the villainous figures looks a lot like Fidel Castro, and one of his comrades wields a machete. It’s hard to say whether or not this moment of recognition is related,

      A great use of multimodal function here bringing in a book to the argument in hand. It brings in a entire view of American culture into the mix by depicting a machete as weapon. The way that the writer explains it and the picture depicted on the bottom show the machete to be a weapon of terror or fear, as oppose to the tool for survival and nourishment that the history would suggest. So in American culture could it be the a machete signifies weapons and fear more than tools? And considering that the writer he read it in high school it can be assumed that many english classes in throughout that sate even the nation have the same idea about it. As Haltman wrote it's important to know what the object might signify but attention how they might be signify. (4)

    8. the machete has a special place in the labor history of Florida, where for three and a half centuries slaves and wageworkers cut sugarcane in the fields by hand. Indeed, machetes are unique to the extent that they have always been used for both purposes—and not just as a plot device in horror flicks, either.

      These historical contexts make a strong point of evidence to argument. A lot of times when examining a object its historical meaning comes to mind and bringing up dark historical points in America's history of slavery to argument brings up some emotional feelings to the mix. It goes beyond the scholarly talk of an object and expands the idea of the object to further the readers interpretation of it. By using more of these emotional deductions it serves as a bridge to speculation about meaning for the reader. (Haltman 8)

    9. but the ease with which “tool” becomes “weapon” in the eyes of the law is remarkable. Tools are fine things for workers, but politics dictates that violence be concentrated in the hands of the State, and dispensed by its agents. The slipperiness between innocuous utensil and deadly device represents the risk of insurrection.

      Tools or weapons can be best described in words and how the reader sees the object after that is all dependent on the writers diction and view. In descriptions "writers generate a set of carefully selected nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and to effectively determine the bounds pf possible interpretation." (Hatlman 6) Using words such as "violence" or "deadly" will most likely make it seem like a weapon in this instance. More than anything the type of diction that a phrase has can drastically change what the word will mean or what it will mean to the reader.

    10. Debates in the U.S. about the right to carry weapons focus almost exclusively on firearms. But the machete bears an unusual character. It’s possible to conceive of it as a weapon, yes, but it’s also very much a tool—not altogether different from, say, a shovel.

      This section brings up a very interesting point in the argument, though uncommon in the U.S many places outside the U.S use a machete as a tool (especially in tropical rain forrest areas) but in many part of American culture it's depicted as weapons such as movies, video games, and entertainment outlets. This could be what Prown calls a polarity which in turn finds material expression in a language of formal oppositions. That one single object what mean two completely perpendicular concepts. It can be perceived as one or the other depending on point of view of the beholder.

    1. We command all priests on feast days and Sundays to pray for all who keep the peace

      It is very clear that priests play an immense role as mediators between earth and heaven and that people believed they had higher spiritual connections.

    2. If he desires to make satisfaction for his crime he shall first restore the thing which he stole or its value in money

      It is interesting to see how religion played a spiritual yet also a more authoritative role. It ensured that people were following norms and were being fair to one another even if it (religion) was sometimes too strict.

    3. violator of the peace shall fall sick and die before he completes his penance, no Christian shall visit him or move his body from the place where it lay

      I think this goes to show how strict religious rules were and how people were forced to make extremely hard decisions as a result. I cannot image how a mother must have felt seeing her son die and not being able to visit his dead body because he sinned and did not finish his penance for it.

    11. commonly called the truce of God

      Although these were very religious times and most acts were often seen as influenced or direct assignments of God was often a sort of excuse of action , to determine a will or action as something " by God" in order to excuse oneself?

    12. All merchants and other men who pass through your territory from other lands shall have peace from you.

      Would it be acceptable to engage in combat if trespassers are hostile?

    13. All who associate with him in any way, who give him advice or aid, or hold converse with him, unless it be to advise him to do penance and to leave the bishopric,

      To what degree is communication with an individual that does not follow these guidelines considered being punished for?

    14. he shall take the communion and undergo the ordeal of hot iron. If he is found guilty, he shall do penance within the bishopric for seven years.

      If he denies the charges, 7 years under a Bishop seems a lot better than exiled for 30 years. Wouldn't everyone deny the charges in that case?

    15. All merchants and other men who pass through your territory from other lands shall have peace from you.

      Merchants would try to be peaceful regardless because who's gonna buy anything from a merchant who isn't nice and respectful. Average working men on the other hand can be somewhat unpredictable.

    16. curse all who violate it or support its violators.

      Priests should be people and symbols of peace, religion, piety, and hope not signs of cruelty and mercilessness.

It’s a way of saying, Don’t linger here and start thinking up stories, just stick to the facts

      when it comes to translation of stories, the original words of the old language are often changed to make more sense in our current language, or aren't altered and make little to no sense at all. this makes it difficult to "stick to the facts" when there are few "hard, flat, bright, motionless" aspects to a translated work, but we must stick to what can be salvaged nonetheless.

    10. humans are creatures who crave a story

      in relation to the language of silence (and Bacon's use of color), we must consider we may be reading too deeply into some of these works. how can we draw conclusions and meaning out of a painting, let alone stories older than most trees and from completely different societies without projecting our own feelings and experiences onto them? with this, can we trust that much of human experience over all known time are similar enough to trust and put weight into these projections?

      Lets put links to all of these and group them in sections (body, then mind).

      Also let's talk a little about what sleep does so they understand the inner workings.

      "We are still unsure about why we need sleep but getting it is essential to function our best everyday. From the time that we wake up, our brain is wanting to go back to the sleeping state. This is called sleep pressure. At the time of wake, we release a burst of cortisol and acetylcholine spiking our heart rate and activating our senses and muscles. This gets us into motion.

      Over the day a toxins build up creating plaques in our brains, similar to plaque on our teeth. Additionally, we are creating new neurons with all of the new information that we are taking in. When we fall asleep, spinal fluid enters the brain and clears out these plaques. Then proteins actually breakdown the unnecessary neurons creating space for new ones to grow the next day, while strengthening the connections of the newer important neurons by replaying the patterns we learned during the day throughout the night. (the importance of the neurons is likely attached to the frequency of the information studied and the emotional state of the body at the time of learning the new information - see episodic memories).

      As these toxins build up, the brain feels more and more pressure to go to sleep. But from the time we wake up, we have a different neural network that is applying a greater force enabling us to stay awake - it is called the wake network. This wake network is like a symphony conductor for your waking brain which integrates many different areas of your brain, originating out of the hippocampus, in specifically hypocretin cells (people with narcolepsy are missing these cells). This network is turned off by melatonin, which is secreted

    1. Marijuana is not only a popular drug; it is an evolving one. The National Institute on Drug Abuse warns that the potency of marijuana has been on the rise for the last few decades. The increased potency mainly stems from the ability of marijuana cultivators to continually create new, more powerful strains.

      I see this as a two-way street. We want to join the conversation at the table, and to feel we will be heard. We also need to be open to listening to the opinions/ideas of the others at the table.

    1. Depending on the level of exposure, lead can adversely affect the nervous system, kidney function, immune system, reproductive and developmental systems and the cardiovascular system. 

      Lead effects

    2. At the national level, major sources of lead in the air are ore and metals processing and piston-engine aircraft operating on leaded aviation fuel. Other sources are waste incinerators, utilities, and lead-acid battery manufacturers.

      Source of lead

    1. Snowden made it clear that he intended to use his real identity as the source of the classified information.

      This may be one of the most badass moves I've ever heard of. Pretty much saying f*ck you to the government.

    2. National Security Agency’s mass surveillance programme using classified documents revealed by NSA whistle-blower

      This sentence sounds like a conspiracy theorist saying that the NSA is watching you through your computer, Alexa, Smart TV, phone, ect.

    1. Not all social networking is created equal.

      Some social media sites can help bolster self image, while others tear it down. You-tube is one of the better sites in this right, while Instagram is the worst.

    1. rigid rules (inorganically).

      inorganically? what about having rigid rules is inorganic? it sounds like you are saying that they are not natural, but they are.

    2. A gridlock in American politics is a lack of both coordination and cooperation. Lack of coordination: different views about the role of government in the economy. Lack of cooperation: both Democrats and Republicans care about their own re-election, thus are unlikely to make hard decisions that are unpopular with their constituents.

      i don't really like these definitions of coordination, and cooperation, but maybe i don't understand them?

    3. common goals.

      this has to be established

    1. Overall good job, tweak setting and plan

    2. Plan: if you say she will resume, It gives the impression that she has stooped or is going to stop tx for some reason

    3. Setting: Insurance is not going to pay for your services in an outpatient clinic. What other setting would be appropriate

    1. Foracapitalistclasstoexist,themarketmustberigged,andindeed,allmarketsare

      Never really thought of this, but it seems pretty dark.

    2. Nosocialorder,nomatterhowentrenchedandruthlesslyimposed,canresisttransformationwhennewwaysofproducingandshar-ingemerge.

      This in a way reminds me of how everyone is always wanting the new thing and hoping it'll make their lives better.

    3. Notonlydoesoursocietyfacetheage-oldafflic-tionsofpovertyandinjustice,butitisbecomingclearthattheproductionlevelsrequiredtosustaintheaccumulationofanelitefewdriveusrepeatedlyintowar,andinevitablytowardsenvironmentalcatastrophe.

      I feel like this is a bit overdramatic. Yes the internet does have a vital role in our everyday lives, but calling it a catastrophe is a bit much.

    1. abandon your allegiance to previous forms and put the function front and center

      form vs. function, format vs. purpose, shape vs us

    2. When most people envision the future, they project the current formforward rather than projecting the function forward and abandoning the form.

      the question is what do we do and for what purpose? and how is that function going to change? well one idea is that creativity is going to be more important and generating new ideas and combining them together and research will be more important too. that is actually visionary and perceptive of you.

    1. And how online this is more complicated because text hides tone or can relay misunderstandings of tone

      Yes! I find even when I know a person well, sometimes I miss tone. Just think how much worse it is when it is someone we don't know well and/or someone whose native tongue is different than ours!

    1. Ryan, good job with what you've posted...but you're missing key elements, e.g., sources and citations, quiz items, etc.

    1. A couple of things are missing:

      • Questions/answers for exam.
      • Citations/References

      Also, the focus of the theory should be on mass media (since this is a course in mass media theory). You are too focused on corporate social responsibility...which is related, but not central to this course. My initial comments were posted Feb 8 and I don't see any evidence that you've considered them and made changes.

    1. current liberal views of free software and free culture which seek to trap culture within capitalism

      I wonder if this relates to open data and the availability it has online.

    1. I feel like there is not so much ‘randomness’ nowadays because circles and networks are becoming so intertwined and online connections are just becoming more globa

      A decade ago, when MySpace was still king, I did a research paper on social media and philanthropy. One of the interesting sources I used was the book Linked: How Everything Is Connected to Everything Else and What It Means for Business, Science, and Everyday Life by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi. There is much I have forgotten, but one point he made that stuck with me is that "Six Degrees of Separation" has diminished to 2-3 with the advent of the internet and social media. He posited that number would shrink even further over time, which perhaps it has.

      I feel like this is a two-edged sword, like most advancements. I personally am thankful to be able to keep in touch more easily with people I care about, regardless of their geographical location.

      I have also found a community of other professionals whom I value on many levels - colleague, sounding board, and in some cases people I would label as "friend."

      On the flip side, I am conscious of the fact that it is easy to enter an "echo chamber," where my virtual circle agrees with my opinions and I don't have to substantiate my point of view. I work to enter the lairs of other viewpoints, to keep an open mind, and to enter into civil discourse.

    1. Conclusion

      Use headings (size) in a consistent manner. Overall good job, but would like to see one or two multimedia elements (images, video, etc.) Also, be sure to provide answers to your short essay questions.

    1. fully read and considered by you, you will learn my extreme desire that you should attain that greatness which fortune and your other attributes promise.

      Remember, Machiavelli is writing this because he has been fired from his position within the current government, and he is trying to get that position back by writing this text to appease the Prince of Italy.

    2. Those who draw pictures place themselves below in the plain to understand the nature of the mountains and other high places, and in order to understand the plains place themselves upon high mountains. Similarly, to understand the nature of the people one needs to be a prince, and to understand princes one needs to be of the people

      What do you think he means by this?

    1. Since your goals are mostly at the grocery store, shouldn't that community environment be part of your setting?

      Other than that very nice work

    1. he time provided for writing grows as the children's ability to write develops. Chil

      I also think it is important to time students at how long they partake in the writing process because they can see how much they have grown over the course of the year. It's important for students to see this because it can give them confidence to push further.

    1. Propaganda still exists today. In advertising, politics, and all around you. Every day. 

      This idea could use additional development.

    2. outer


    3. their


    4. Propaganda is information that is disseminated; that is either biased or furthers a political view.

      Not sure about this definition. Source?

    5. Hi Lacy, overall pretty good content. Could do a better job formatting the layout to make the text and images flow better. One thing that will help is making the issues smaller, but then linking them to larger versions for those who want to see them in more detail. Also, you need to provide answers to your short essay questions.

    1. improve literature circles we video recorded group meetings and then watched these with individual members, whole groups, or the whole class to discuss how the conver sations went and what could be improved. T

      I really like this idea of watching the video as a class because it allows not only the teacher to reflect but also the students to reflect on their own behavior. By doing this students can see how they need to change in order to make the literature circle a more positive experience.

    2. here was a pervasive feeling of hostility between the students, and many of their everyday interactions seemed to be punctuated by verbal assaults such as "stupid" and "ugly," as if these words were to be rou tinely attached to the end of a sentence.

      Based on this information and the dialogue at the beginning, I can see that the teacher needs to greatly improve the sense of community in the classroom. Creating a socially safe environment for all students is a necessity for all students to learn. Certain qualities of character need to be addressed to the whole class seeing as this is a huge problem to their learning.

    3. Based on the Vygotskian notion that learning develops through social interaction (Vygotsky, 1934/1978) and the re search that collaboration and group work can lead to positive consequences (

      I agree with vygotski's notion because when given opportunity to share ideas, students can learn more about other ideas and viewpoints from peers. This is how students grow to change, develop, and better their own ideas and thoughts about a particular reading, topic, or issue.

    1. Info-environmentalism encourages us to clean up polluted information environments, to actively create and share credible, research-based, balanced information and web-artefacts.

      I think this is a great goal. Another "literacy" I work to develop in my teen students is to dive below the surface. It is easy for them to find valid surface information about a topic, and weave it together into a coherent, credible story. However, I struggle to get them to investigate further. They will report (correctly) that "B campaigned for G to happen." However, when asked "Why did B feel it important to campaign for G?" I often get blank stares. I just keep asking questions.

    1. I would argue that there are few noble uses for polarization

      Agreed. So how does the highly polarized US reduce this, and begin to find common ground?

    1. Curiosity brought people together in a way that mere facts did not.

      Yes! Curiosity, combined with lively, respectful debate.

    2. The hurdle was 10 articles and two opinion pieces over three months.


    3. If all your time is [spent] checking someone else’s facts, then what are you doing?”

      I think a lot of that is happening right now with Trump. He is deflecting the American public into checking facts while the bigger issues are quietly being unattended in the background.

    1. This kind of linguistic decision is simply a measure of foreignness, an acknowledgment of the fact that languages are not sciences of one another, you cannot match them item for item. But now what if, within this silence, you discover a deeper one—a word that does not intend to be translatable. A word that stops itself.

      This is also explanation of how Joan on trial wants her voices, she wants them to die and stop itself. She knows that the voices have no deeper meaning and has black of experience to have deeper mean and you cannot make them an item or explain them because of their lack of story and lack of meaning.

    1. a university librarian wondering why students use only Google nowadays

      I agree that the disruption is felt in libraries. While libraries have evolved for centuries, the pace of that change has certainly accelerated due to the disruptions created by new technologies.

    1. Study Methodology

      I don't think this study was set up with a control. However, what is the standard rate of turnover across the tech industry vs all industry? And how are these rates different than the ones for certain demographic groups?

    2. tech and non-tech job functions

      Interesting. So, these results represent the tech companies more than tech employees because it may include admin or operations positions.

    3. We recognize that the experiences describe within the report do not reflect all companies or all employees.

      Basically, their results are not generalizable to all tech companies or all tech employees.

    4. Other/Decline to Answer

      A "more than one race" category is becoming more common for demographics questions, which this study did not use.

    5. Bureau of Labor Statistics

      This is a common definition, but can be somewhat questionable at times. Aerospace is not a tech field?

    6. Unfairness was intentionally undefined for participants,

      A definite choice, but somewhat questionable. A parallel study with unfairness defined would be interesting for comparison.

    7. Summary of unfair experiences

      I also wonder how many of the White respondents cited "reverse" discrimination.

    8. Chinese, Female, Engineer

      I find this example ironic, given the choice to combine White and Asian women as a category. It also leads to a question of whether the choice obscures the data: maybe the split of opinion between White and Asian women is different?

    9. research questions

      Five research questions seem like a lot. Academic articles seem to have much fewer, around 1-3.

    10. The sample was weighted to reflect the composition of adults across the United States, including accounting for age, gender, geographic region, race/ethnicity, income, household size, marital status, employment and education.

      It seems like there would be a lot of weighing with the higher percentage of male and white respondents.

    11. left a technology function within the last three years

      Do the authors ever explain the significance of having left a job in the last three years? The only explanation I can think of is respondents' limited recall ability about workplace events that might skew the results. I wonder how this subgroup analysis would look had they included respondents who had left a job in the past five or ten years.

    1. "It was a strange coincidence," I said. "But it wasn't a coincidence at all."

      This quote reminds me of that scene from The Incredibles where Dash's teacher is playing back a security tape that should have proved Dash guilty of pulling a prank on his teacher. The notorious line goes, "Coincidence? I think not!"


    2. When Jordan Baker had finished telling all this we had left the Plaza for half an hour and were driving in a victoria through Central Park.

      By reading this excerpt, I am reminded of an alarming statistic that I learned in humanities. The Crown Victoria was the most popular vehicle used for undercover policeman across the nation. Obviously at the time Fitzgerald was writing this, the Crown Victoria was but a dream. I could imagine that while people become nervous and anxious around law enforcement whether they had done anything at or not. It occurs the same way for spotting Daisy or Gatsby around town. They are almost celebrities and they are richer than you. I can't think of a person who doesn't at least try, if they are able, to spruce up their appearance upon seeing them.

    1. Gunner L.J. Doyle who was sentenced to death by shooting after being convicted of murdering Lance Corporal M.W. Lambert on 6 November 1943 near Campobasso Italy.

      Capital case in Italy

    2. In May 1945, long after the 1st Canadian Corpshad been transferred to North-West Europe, there wereninety-four deserters listed at large in Italy

      94 deserters listed as missing in Italy after the army left for NW Europe.

    3. Judging this intent was up to regimental officers or those in the military courts.

      Judging the difference between AWL and desertion was the regimental officer's duty.

    4. While six soldiers in Britain were hangeddue to sentences from British civil courts, British judges generally tended towards leniency.180

      Six soliders were hanged in UK for crimes

    5. Care must be taken to discriminate between offences due to youth, temper, sudden temptation or unaccustomedsurroundings, and those due to premeditated misconduct

      King's regulations

    1. Self-publishing puts the process in the hands of the producer. Amazon eliminates intermediaries or makes them invisible (equivalent to robots).

      I think the Internet has threatened the structure of traditional publishing and has left it open to new challenges of an open market, such as self-publishing. But why is this being positioned negatively - isn’t giving more power to the author a good thing ie. Rupi Kaur’s self-published Milk and Honey?

    2. 5,000 best-selling books most sought after by their customers

      This reminds me of an article on Geist by Stephen Henighan in which he discusses the dictatorship of BookNet Canada in the publishing industry which is used by publishers to published either new authors only or authors who have written best-sellers. In this manifesto, Amazon seems to be dictating the book selling industry similar to BookNet Canada.

    3. Mango

      This reminds me of our class conversations about Amazon decreasing the prices of books!

    1. Study demonstrates that quick, technical solutions to HRH crises is not the solution as this has been ongoing problem for 20 years. The answer is to change political infrastructure of the country, and get Governments to invest in long-term plans (even if they go beyond their tenure). They need strategic plans that are state-owned, so they have skills and acumen to implement plans and sustain it. Donors and international organisations should not be in control of how finance is utilised, and if good plan is in place, they will respect - e.g. Ethiopia.

    1. If you’re unaware, the NCAA released data showing that only 14 programs are turning a profit without having to rely on institutional support (like student fees or a check cut directly from the university coffers).

      One of the biggest obstacles in the paying college athletes. Most of the universities simply can't afford to pay all of their athletes.

    1. How could the Cree, Metis and Dene people of Fort Mackay live in it?

      This paragraph makes the issue very "real" for me through the vivid imagery. When reading news articles on the tar sand wars, it's hard to conceptualize how exactly substandard it is for people living in the area.

    1. There are also two kinds of truth: those ofreasoningand those offact

      What is the difference between truths of fact and truths of reason?

    2. perception.

      What does Leibniz mean by "perception"

    3. n

      What is a monad? Why does Leibniz call it that?
