    1. Does latin really have no synonyms (or pronouns, apparantly)? No-one is ever weaponless, or without excuse, for example. It’s always “absent weapon” and “absent excuse” etc. Is there no verb ‘to be’ in latin? Nobody is Roman, they “stand roman”, they ‘stand’ anything that they might otherwise be. They stand hungry, they stand a senator, and so on. Characters never speak, or say, or tell anything. They only “break words”. Oh, and they all seem to be absent pronouns whenever they stand breaking words.

      The use of "absent" is excessive in the show Spartacus. This, supposedly, is done with intention. It need mimic the Latin language structure. Though, how does absent this and that aid in that?

    1. . „Klimamodellen zufolge hat der Grundwasserbestand in der Zeit von 1993 bis 2010 um 2.150 Gigatonen abgenommen“, berichten Seo und seine Kollegen. Anhand eines Modells sowie Schwerefeldmessungen und Daten zur Polwanderung haben sie rekonstruiert, wie sich dies auf die Bewegung der Erdachse ausgewirkt hat.

      Zwischen 1993 und 2010 hat der Grundwasserbestand der Erde durch menschliche Entnahmen um 2150 abgenommen – vor allem in den mittleren Breiten. Die Erhöhung des Meeresspiegels dadurch ist so groß, dass sich die Drift der Erdachse dadurch leicht verändert hat. https://www.scinexx.de/news/geowissen/unser-wasserverbrauch-verschiebt-die-erdachse/

    1. The first major insight on God’s Number was by Dr. Morwen Thistlethwaite in 1981, who proved it was at most 52. That means he proved every scrambled cube can be solved in 52 moves or less.Progress continued through the 1990s and 2000s. Finally, in June 2010, a team of four scientists proved that God’s number is 20.

      With respect to the Rubic's Cube, God's number is defined as the minimum number of turns to solve a randomly scrambled cube. Morwen Thistlethwaite proved that it was at most 52 moves in 1981. By June 2010 a group of four had a proof that God's number is 20.

    1. I think social infrastructure is what love looks like in public. It listens and responds to the needs of people. It’s a fabric that weaves people together towards a shared community thriving. If we’re to survive the worst of what’s to come, we need to build and embolden public systems of care.

      "Social infrastructure is what love looks like in public" Social infrastructure is an expression of community/communal values, and an active intervention in bringing about that community and building those communal values. Result and intervention. In community building you can use this, create the intervention and people will treat it as a result (and thus act within that community as member), Vgl [[Community building 20100210214508]] Wenger et al. I realise I never made a Notion about 'cathedral building' as a testament to community created / strength https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2010/05/working_on_stuf/ . Social infrastructure is a form of 'cathedral building', or more modest 'barn raising', where the process is a community intervention and expression, and the result feeds back into that.

    1. Teaching with Web 2.0 Technologies: Benefits, Barriers and Lessons Learned

      In this article, the author defines Web 2.0 technology and use for Web 2.0 in higher education. Through a small study of educators, discovery includes advantages, obstacles, and general guidance for implementation of web 2.0 tools. The author supports use of Web 2.0 to supplement learning, not as a substitute for the educator. Technologies must be implemented strategically and purposefully. 7/10

    1. Using wikis for collaborative learning: Assessing collaboration through contribution

      Through a study of freshman students, the author aimed to determine the success of the Wiki for collaboration. Results revealed variances in learner responses and use of the tool. Lack of use was explained by individual barriers (family, social, work) and system barriers (wiki design). The authors conclude that for the Wiki to be an effective, collaborative tool, additional resources must be provided to the learner, and the Wiki must be meaningful in its design to foster that participation. 7/10

    1. Myth: Refugees are all Muslim.

      Do people actually think that? That is ridiculous and so ignorant. People shouldn't stereotype like that. Does the general public really believe that all refugees are from the middle east and are Muslim? I wonder if they know that there are thousands of Christians in the middle east."Christians now make up approximately 5% of the Middle Eastern population, down from 20% in the early 20th century" That's part of the problem. It's a war on freedom. Religious freedom, basic human rights, and personal desires. Sheesh!

    1. But the passage from de man does disservice to the discussion of close reading in one important respect. It makes it sound as though all you need is a negative disci-pline, a refusal to leap to the kind of paraphrases one has been led to expect, so that effective close reading requires no technique or training, only an avoidance of bad or dubious training. The suggestion seems to be that if one strips away these bad habits and simply encounters the text, without preconceptions, close reading will occur. If, as de man puts it, you are “attentive” and “honest,” close reading “cannot fail to respond to structures of language” that most literary education strives “to keep hidden.” atten-tion is important but not, alas, enough. Readers can always fail to respond—though then de man might not want to dignify the practice with the name of reading.

      Discussion of the methodological difficulties involved in close reading: i.e. there is no such thing as "just reading."

    1. This paper examines the role played by Beckett's Texts for Nothing in the theoretical controversy concerning authorship that arose during the late 1960s. The implications of Foucault's quotation of Text 3 in his "What Is an Author?" create a canonical position for Beckett in a literature of anti-authorship, whilst the inclusion of Barthes's "The Death of the Author" alongside a recording of Text 8 in the avant-garde box magazine Aspen 5+6 facilitates a parallel reading which serves to underline certain submerged structures in Barthes's article, suggesting that the Barthesian author remains very much al
