    1. Looking back at a problematic choice or action taken provides a useful beginning in the effort to function differently. “Gee, I wish I had not done that,” or “I can’t believe I did the same dumb thing again,” are examples of hindsight that offer an opportunity to pay closer attention and work on problematic behaviors. Insight might occur in the process change. This occurs when a person becomes self-aware during the commission of a regrettable action or behavior. “There I go again,” is the phrase that often accompanies an insightful moment. The advantage of insight over hindsight is that insight may occur in time for a regrettable action or decision to be avoided.

    1. Twitch, the popular site where people go to watch other people play video games

      That's an oversimplification -- even video game streamers spend a lot of time just talking to their audience or watching videos.

      Twitch provides on-demand, human connection (like radio or TV before it).

    1. For the Stop Reset Go project, we are exploring how we achieve a group flow state that can connect us in an experience of deep humanity as we engage in a process of human inner transformation and social outer transformation. The goal of the project is bottom-up whole system change.

      The concept of a builders collective is to document what people are already doing to build a world that works for 100% of life.

    1. I think Marshall McLuhan knew it all. I really do. Not exactly what it would look like, but his view and Postman’s view that we are creating a digital global nervous system is a way they put it, it was exactly right. A nervous system, it was such the exact right metaphor. And he didn’t — it’s not that they saw it exactly, but I really love those mid-century media critics because they saw something happening clearer than we see it now. And it is a nervous system. I’m a huge Marshall McLuhan stan.

      We are creating physical infrastructure to scale, enhance, and amplify human capabilities to extend our reach beyond the constraints of time and space.

    1. "If you look at a map of the distribution of languages around the world and you compare it with maps that show the distribution of mammal species or bird species, you see an extraordinarily similar picture: The hot spots of linguistic diversity, in so many cases, coincide with hot spots of biological diversity," he said.

      Making the connection between language diversity and biodiversity.

    1. Leanne Betasamosake Simpson writes of all her relations with living beings, the land, and the water. She explores the disconnection that results from the building of lift locks, canals, and hydro dams in her stories of Nogojiwanong in her book, Islands of Decolonial Love.

      In our recent Stop Reset Go meeting, we discussed the goal of connection. Leanne Simpson has much to say about connection in her collection of stories.

    1. To be trauma-informed, it is essential to know what lies at the root of depression and anxiety: a lack of connection.

      In our Stop Reset Go meeting on Tuesday, Ferial Puren focused on the goal of connection. “We can leverage our technological advancements to scale our natural human technology of communication, collaboration and connection.”

    1. When patients are asked how their sleep problems started, they’ll typically mention some “stressful event or a big change in their life as a thing that sort of got them off track,” Martin said.

      This happens to me when before a big flight. big test. or even a big night. I cant sleep a wink.

    1. ol their circumstances, or in order not to be submer, ed b reality that they cannot arti

      I really liked this quote and it made me think back to the last text that discussed how the creators of AAVE used it in order to communicate with others in a new land



    1. ow here’s a tricky one for you. This Black English use of done makes possible a tense that has pretty much gone out of white mainstream usage

      Reading about different tenses reminds me of learning Spanish, which further goes to show how AAVE should be respected as its own language

    2. All languages change over time;

      I'm also learning about the instability of language in one of my other classes.



    1. pidgin

      I remember learning about pidgin in a class last semester. Prior to this I always thought that pidgin referred to one language itself and I didn't realize there were different types.



    1. Th

      Personal connection: smokers/former smokers using vapes to help them quit cigarettes would lose the benefit of healthier option if there is a ban.

    1. Finally, rhetorical situations come into existence, then eithermature or decay or mature and persist—conceivably some persistindefinitely.

      I'm anticipating Boyle's "Rhetoric as a Posthuman Practice" having something to say about rhetorical situations outliving the people having them

    2. so.

      Eric Hayot would have a field day with this paragraph. 54545454545454 (...)

    3. None, to my knowledge, has asked the nature ofrhetorical situation.

      I'm having trouble distinguishing between the rhetorical situation that's failing to be sought after and the parts-- audience, subject, speaker, occasion, etc.-- that seem to collectively comprise that situation. It seems that a rhetorical situation is the interplay of those parts, perhaps in a manner similar to the Bakhtinian chronotope? I.e., a sort of contextual intersection?

    1. Black culture that white America loves to hate, yet loves to take

      I thought this was a very powerful line and it also reminded me of the discussion that took place during the last class regarding internet slang that was taken from AAVE.



    1. Ann Arbor Black English case took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan

      This is the case that I have referenced in a few other annotations

    2. From signifying to habitual be to call and response,

      I recall learning about these phrases and what they mean in a class that I took last semester



    1. It is enforced in subtle and not so subtle ways by the judicial speech, but wstem.

      This makes me think of the Rachel Jeantel court issues where she was subjected to a large amount of discrimination due to her language and how she spoke.

    2. ll the evidence indicates that there is still blatant discrimination in employment, >firms. ®eesing, education, the media, the courts and in everyday interaction. Despite the passing ae = Gvil Rights legislation, despi

      I also brought this up in last weeks annotation, but this reminds me of the lawsuit that was brought up at a nearby school due to students being discriminated against due to their usage of AAVE.



    1. he concept that different language varieties are suited to different situations can be summed up in the distinction which is often drawn between correctness and appropriateness of language.

      This also reminds me of the idea of code switching, which was heavily discussed in one of my classes last year

    2. is accepted by linguists that no language or dialect is inher- ently superior or inferior to any other,

      I was also discussing a similar idea to this in another class. We were looking at an anthropologists ideas regarding Native Americans and their languages and culture

    3. Teacher: You can see on the bottom of your sheet, ‘We ain’t got no money.’ That is typically a London accent—the ten- dency to drop the aitch off the front of words, d’you see? It’s a lazy way-of speaking

      I read about an old case that went on by a high school near my old town where teachers were deeming students as special needs due to their way of speaking. Luckily, there was a law suit filed in order to correct this



    1. Itshould be clear by now why linguists consider the idea ofa spoken standardized language to be a hypothetical construct.

      This was a idea highlighted a large portion of the idea that I studied last year in one of my course, regarding AAVE and its legitimacy as a language



    1. he level of our human relationships has never béen so low. We live in a social nd state jobs are environment where there is little or no respect for human or natural life;

      There is a very limited amount of things said in this reading that I wish to try to make connections to because I know I cannot even if I wish to. This, though, I see on a much broader scale. Our connections with each other, the way we form them, and the willingness we have to form them in the first place.



    1. Another important virtue for the teacher is patience and its opposite, impatienc

      I admire here the point the writer makes about the importance of impatience just as much as patience because it takes one to understand the other.

    1. ã©^Q€¦ƒ^˜ ̧

      The container or recipient's significance makes sense; in addition to whatever's found out in the field for subsistence, if 15 hours could cover a full week's worth of supplies, anything surplus would probably have to be stored or carried somehow.

    1. Medium design also potentially expands the repertoire for shifting those conditions that support oppression and ,riolence.

      this refers back to medium design's disdain for the violence inherent in dialectic

    2. Since the world's big bullies and bulletproof forms of power thrive on this oscillation between loop and binary, it is as if there is nothing to counter them -only more ways of fighting and being right and providing the rancor that nourishes their violence.

      This smacks of Cooper's, Deleuze's, and Whitehead's departures from Hegelian dialectic.

    1. as the Church was in the days of old

      Texts like Joyce's Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man suggest that the days of old mightn't've been all that long ago, and that's got its pros and cons

    2. "hidden transcript.

      The hidden transcript is reminiscent of the the "hidden curriculum" that Jessica McCrory Calarco aims to shed light on in her A Field Guide to Grad School. Although McCrory Calarco's binary is more about those with access to knowledge of the ins and outs of academia vs those who don't, the dynamic for Scott is similar in its separating those for whom the system works and those for whom it outwardly seems an obstacle to education.

    3. with, not for

      I think these prepositions are important because, otherwise, the dynamic that puts the professor lording over the student similar to the banking model could just be perpetuated in a new guise.

    4. Scott disrupts this familiar depiction of the world gone wrong by observing that it rests on the assumption that there are those who mis- perceive reality and those who perceive it clearly, those with false consciousness and those with a scientific or true understanding of social reality

      This reminds me of what we talked about in our last class. That is, how we believe that someone else is wrong because their "logic" is faulty. Such a belief implies that logic is purely objective, when it in fact, may not be. The question that arises from this observation is: who is to say who perceives the world clearly and who "misperceive[s] it?" How can we decipher which belief is correct?

    5. One reason that Freire's pedagogy has so much appeal is that it comes armed with a rhetoric that overwhelms and neutralizes any effort to point out this tension between the Freirian insistence on a collaborative methodology, where people are taught not what to think but how, and a practice that, almost magically, produces peo- ple who know exactly what to think about injustice and how it should be redressed

      I think Cooper goes along with this as well. That is, like Freire, she holds the overwhelmingly positive belief that if teachers just show students how to learn, then they will "know exactly what to think" about an issue. Such a philosophy is partially troubling because it implies that there is only one "correct" way of thinking, and that it is relatively easy to convince students to accept it.

    6. Freire

      Nearly all our readings are responding to Freire's claim that the "banking concept" of education is extremely wrong and ineffective. In her book, Cooper provided ways for teachers to divorce themselves from tradititional pedagogy teaching practices. One of the biggest ways is through classroom discussion, where everyone, not just the teacher, has a chance to talk and voice their opinions. This overrides the assumption that the teacher is the only person with knowledge and intellect in the class.

    1. We have to decide when our efforts to influence the system are merely serving to reinforce our fears of powerlessness in the face of profound change. We are not powerless. We have ourselves. We have each other. Perhaps it is time for our interconnection to become our focus.

    1. you must

      "you must" is used 8 times- building with intensity. insisting on what must get done. I'm reminded of William Stafford's "A Ritual to Read to Each Other" https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/58264/a-ritual-to-read-to-each-other Stafford how ever uses "should" not must

    1. Mike: But I believe that if you're really, really dedicated, anything is possible, and I feel like that country made me realize it. That hope. That even though I'm here, if I made it out there I could make it out here. And I just love America. There's nowhere else that's the same as that spot. It taught me a lot of things and I feel like both of them are like my mother countries. They're just like my stepmother. But I love both countries to death.

    1. Luisa: [Sniffles] Because of my mom, I got to meet extremely interesting people that opened up my worldview more so than it already was, because reading transports you to different places and different languages and cultures and you learn so much, and you feel like you have actually been there, but you've never been. It's funny, but that's how it works. My mom, she started working for this store [unclear] and she was doing her design school, and they specialized in Muslim attire and my mom was like, "You know what? I'm going to be independent," so she moves aside. She starts her own thing, and she starts making a bunch of clothes.

    1. In general, the surrogate mother not only gave the infants no security, but instead appeared to serve as a fear stimulus. The emotionality scores of these control subjects were slightly higher during the mother-present test sessions than during the mother-absent test sessions.

      Early connection with a surrogate mother created more sense of security and emotional attachment and will rush to the surrogate when presented, even in a delayed fashion. The monkeys who were not introduced to any kind of surrogate approached the surrogate immediately while the other monkeys were more hesitant and cautious.

    1. shouting and screaming with excitement

      This description of the Trojans matches with their description in book three as "clamouring like birds, like cranes". The Trojans may be fierce but they are not all that organized.

    2.                                         “Ajax, one of the gods dwelling on Olympus, in a prophet’s shape, tells us both to fight on by the ships. For that man was no prophet Calchas,                                                [70] who reads our omens. It was easy for me, as he went away, to see that from the back                                 80 by the markings on his feet and legs. Besides, it’s easy to recognize the gods.

      Recognition of the gods can be connected to an earlier comment that I made about what form they appear in. Here it seems the "voice" of Poseidon comes from within rather than taking on a physical form. Poseidon chooses to speak through Calchas who can see signs of the gods through birds. Birds are referenced in the paragraph before which is an interesting correlation (between Poseidon and Calchas) as well as a shout out to Calchas and all his bird wisdom.

    1. Looking at a few isolated examples doesn’t really represent the enormity of the maintenance problem when you modify objects that you shouldn’t. To understand this point of view, it’s helpful to take a step back and look at moral philosophy (aka ethics).

    1. What is particularly interesting to me is this criticism of technology, especially in the midst of an intense focus on learning new tools—Zoom, Panopto, Slack, Google Meetings, etc—in order to be in closer contact with my students.

      Who do technologies include, and who do they leave out? When we choose a technology, what biases (preferences) are we exposing?

    1. Give up this quarrel. Don’t draw your sword.

      Athena pleads with Achilles to not resort to violence in this rivalry between the two of them. Shortly after, at 1.304 Nestor does the same thing.

    1. She never told us how she felt about being bound to you. Never even called you by name. Just called you her anchor. The thing weighing her down, tying her to this world and stopping her destiny.
    2. Big talk. But Agnes is dead. And I don’t know if you heard, but your little woodland circle’s been broken. So I don’t really see, anything getting in my way, if I wanted to burn the flesh, off your snarky bones.
    1. I’m curious to see what it was she did to derail this big ritual, because I’m sure she didn’t pay poor Jack Barnabas to fall in love with Agnes. (beat) Well, ninety percent sure.

      Jon you know what she did, the ritual circle from Burnt Offering.

    2. As for you, (shaky inhale) whatever you did, and whatever protection it might have afforded you is severed with Agnes’s death. Arthur has told us not to harm you yet, but this whole thing has really rather weakened his authority, and many of us are now looking towards Diego for leadership. But we shall see, I suppose.
    1. It seems we humans are timekeeping machines. And we require regular sleeping and eating habits to keep our body clocks in sync — and our health in check.

      This is true because I went through a period when I did not have regular eating and sleep habits and my health was a bit deteriorating.

    1. The Passionate Mind Revisited: Expanding Personal and Social Awareness

      I got this book and the first few chapters blew my mind. They directly addressed the reader and the process of reading and said something like "this needs to be a conversation. we're trying to point at dimensions of your experience. if you just orient to us as an authority to be accepted or rejected, you won't get much from this book"

      and they did that in a really humorous way

    1. The idea behind ACE is that we elevate three characteristics that are clear, context sensitive, values driven and mission aligned, and we use them to plan assignment-, course- and institution-level responses to COVID-19 in the areas of our university that are connected to teaching and learning.

      You know I love a good framework, and the ACE framework from Robin DeRosa is aces! Adaptability: create flexibility for learners (and everyone). Connection: connect activities beyond the classroom. Equity: include everyone.

    1. idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable

      From DANAHAY 41: Reference to a Victorian debate regarding the existence of intelligent life on Mars. See Wells's article "Intelligence on Mars" in the Saturday Review 8 (April 4, 1896), p. 345-46.

      More information:

    2. a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water

      From DANAHAY 41: Wells was interested in the microscope to the point where he visited a microscope factory for his article "Through a Microscope."

    1. looking up topics that we were interested in.

      topic selection This is similar strategy to what I saw in IF interview. "Looking up" topics - in this case unrelated to each other - to see what kind of information is out there. This student was definitely looking at topics that were of personal interest to him.

    1. But the enemy, like brave soldiers, were not to be thus beaten back. Heated by the fight, five or six of the bravest junks attacked the Hector from all sides; whose warriors, in trying to save it, caused such a dense smoke by firing its cannon from below, above, front and behind, that neither the Hector nor the junks could be observed from the Castle, from which this battle could otherwise have been easily watched.

      Did tactics overwhelm technology in this instance? The Chinese may have had inferior cannons at the time (Andrade) but still blew up the Hector

    1. In matters of life and death, who gives a second thought to blood and kin?

      I took an English/POSC class about the effects of genocide and mass violence on human psyches and the literature that comes from survivors of trauma, and this line reminds me of the unimaginable devastation that people in Hiroshima felt after the Atomic Bomb. This loss of connection between kin was common as people tried to rebuild and put their lives back together; especially with the issue radiation poisoning. These types of poetry of witness are important accounts of the human reaction to mass trauma.

    1. Being part of such a batch naturally constrains the student tobehave, as best he can, as though he were prototypical; it is theeasiest way to fit into the collective activity he is part of

      Again, so connected to the root of critical and culturally responsive pedagogies that often begin with a critique of Euro-centric schooling (and heteronormative, patriarchical, Judeo-Christian- centered schooling).

    1. People’s lives and livelihoods also hang in the balance

      The difficulty here is that human benefits of environmental degradation are often immediate whereas the negative impacts take time to be seen. (one of the major difficulties with combating climate change)

    2. potential for cheating

      Similar to mutualistic relationships in the animal world - they occur most when cheating (one species getting the benefit from another without giving any benefit) is averted.

    3. damaging

      Ex: DDT on eagle and peregrine eggs.

    1. (Janz

      Dan Janzen was the leading scientist of the Guanacaste project I mentioned earlier.

    2. relatively het- erozygous individuals are frequently more fit than relatively homozygous

      Also known as overdominance!

    3. egalitarianism and equal rights among species

      Although I'm not vegetarian myself, I'm pretty sure that vegans, vegetarians, and animal rights activists have followed that same line of thought as well.

    4. culling, eradi- cation, wildlife immunization, habitat protection, and artificial transfers.

      Culling and other such means of neutralization have proven in many cases to be the most effective and cost efficient means of population control within many parks. They often result in public outcry though which causes parks to switch to less harmful and effective means, in turn this often leads to damaging of the ecosystem ironically.

    5. random disappearance of resources or habitats will occur fre- quently in small sites but rarely, if ever, in large ones

      Reminds me of the Single Large or Several Small/SLOSS debate on habitat patch size.

    6. about design and management before he or she is com- pletely comfortable with the theoreti- cal and empirical bases of the an

      I read "The Green Pheonix" last semester in Ecological Restoration which is an amazing story about the restoration of Guanacaste National Park in Costa Rica. It was the first large scale restoration effort and very much relates to what the author is saying here. It was lead by highly knowledgeable scientists, but it was the first time this sort of thing was ever tried and so there was a lot they had to do and plan without complete certainty of the outcomes.

    7. social science disciplines

      Hence why the conservation biology has a boatload of non-science requirements!

    8. crisis-oriented disci- plines

      One of my summer field station professors said something similar to this - he had the opinion that there's a great deal of knowledge we can gain from simply studying how species and communities and landscapes work, but even better is doing something with all that knowledge to actively help the wildlife that we study.

    9. s intuition as well as informatio

      With this wording, the author definitely makes it sound like experience is invaluable for accurately gauging and resolving conservation situations (as I've learned from the world of applying to science jobs, experience is a huge part of getting the job, or getting the job done, in this case)

    1. it also constitutes a certain way of manifesting oneself to oneself and to others.

      At the core of communication is the inherent need for connection.

    1. A bit of a personal connection here, but I participate in activities such as these! I recently started my own fanart blog and the feedback I've received boosted my confidence in my art! It also pushed me to improve my technique and learn new styles!

      There's a huge difference between drawing art for a blog and for education. When you're drawing for your blog, it's up to you to push yourself to learn and whatnot. In a way, it's easier to do because you get to choose what you learn, but it's also a nonlinear type of learning. While a professor will typically push you on a linear path on what skills to learn.
