    1. Traditionally, doctoral students are expected to implicitly absorb thisargument structure through repeated reading or casual discussion.

      The social annotation being discussed here is geared toward classroom work involving reading and absorbing basic literature in an area of the sort relating to lower level literature reviews done for a particular set of classes.

      It is not geared toward the sort of more hard targeted curated reading one might do on their particular thesis topic, though this might work in concert with a faculty advisor on a 1-1 basis.

      My initial thought on approaching the paper was for the latter and not the former.

    1. regarding the private sector response to COVID-19, perhaps this is the catalyst that’ll shift the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to human social responsibility (HSR)

      This pandemic has indeed promoted a great number of changes in our society; I also believe that it could be a catalyst to shifting our attention to an idea of human social responsibility. I think that the use of masks, especially, is one of the ways in which this concept of human social responsibility has been talked about the most (specially at the beginning of the pandemic).

    1. I do not vouch for Janet's conceptions being valid, and I do not say that the two ways of looking at the mind contradict each other or are mutually incongruous; I simply say that they are incongruent [sic]. Each covers so little of our total mental life that they do not even interfere or jostle. Meanwhile the clinical conceptions, though they may be vaguer than the analytic ones, are certainly more adequate, give the concreter picture of the way the whole mind works, and are of far more urgent practical importance. So the 'physician's attitude,' the 'functional psychology,' is assuredly the thing most worthy of general study to-day.

      While James (1907) didn't believe in lab work but did see the importance of it. Clinical work does shed light on many different aspect of the mind through functional psychology to scientific world.

    1. I argue that US shrinking cities that are variably engaged in a shiftfrom traditional pro-growth to right-sizing planning models have come to representactual and potential zones “of cohabitation and contestation among multiple economicforms” in which breaks “in the relations and practices constituting the performance” ofprevious development models have opened up possibilities for the flourishing of “neweconomic becomings” (Gibson-Graham, 2006) that can be understood as prefigurationsof “a resilient, resourceful and convivial local economy ” (North, 2014; North, 2017)diverging from hegemonic neo-liberal urban development models (Rossi, 2017).

      The land use experimentation in shrinking cities breaks with dominant economic growth models and can be viewed contestations of previous neo-liberal planning models and precursors to more neighborly types of local economic activity.

      Critiques community economic development's focus on local empowerment. Advances the argument that a local focus divorced from the broader political economy cannot tackle the larger governance and economic forces that create inequality, especially due to concentrated poverty in some jurisdictions that leaves local governments under-resourced due to a meager tax base.

    1. The cover did not give Kamala D. Harris due respect. It was overly familiar. It was a cover image that, in effect, called Harris by her first name without invitation.

    1. "theory of change approach"

      A "Theory of change approach" to evaluating community initiatives will have three stages: 1) IDing what should change 2) Set and measure, determine activities and outcomes 3) evaluate, interpret against desired change, and adjust to improve. This draws on typical evaluation process - but CCIs have more elusive nuances because of economic, political and social aspects of communities which have interactions from levels of institutions (govt and NGOs) and community capitals/network, as well as small and collective actors.

    1. The most common way to stage an argument in the thesis goes something like this: Here is a puzzle/problem/question worth asking. If we know more about this puzzle/problem/question then something significant (policy, practice, more research) can happen.Here is what we already know about the puzzle/problem/question. I’ve used this existing knowledge (literatures) to help: my thinking and approach; my research design; make sense of my results; and establish where my scholarly contribution will be. Here is how I designed and did the research in order to come up with an “answer”.Here’s the one/two/three clusters of results.Missing stepNow here’s my (summarised) “answer” to the puzzle/problem/question I posed at the start. On the back of this answer, here’s what I claim as my contribution(s) to the field. Yes I didn’t do everything, but I did do something important. Because we now know my answer, and we didn’t before I did the research, then here are some possible actions that might arise in policy/practice/research/scholarship.

    7. theory of individual rational choice to analyze social issues beyond those usually consid- ered by economists is to incorporate into the theory a much richer class of attitudes, preferences, and calculations. While this approach to behavior builds on an expanded theory of individual choice, it is not mainly concerned with individuals. It uses theory at the micro level as a powerful tool to derive implications at the group or macro level.

      RC theory can be used for analysis of a broad set of social issues by adding into the development of the theory more "attitudes, preferences, and calculations" --- resulting in a theory of individual choice. BUT by studying at the micro level - it's possible to understand implications at the macro.

    1. Nor do we consider one of the major reasons why schools and colleges overlook the intellectual potential of street smarts: the fact that we associate those street smarts with anti-­intellectual concerns. We associate the educated life, the life of the mind, too narrowly and exclusively with subjects and texts that  we consider  inherently  weighty  and academic.

      In a version of Graff's thesis statement or controlling idea, he makes the claim that knowledge of the "content" of education -- be it science, philosophy, literature, etc. -- isn't as important as the "form" of critical engagement, i.e., in the ability to gather and evaluate evidence and to compose and respond to intellectual arguments.

      Deep Compression" can reduce the model sizeby 18?to 49?without hurting the prediction accuracy. We also discovered that pruning and thesparsity constraint not only applies to model compression but also applies to regularization, andwe proposed dense-sparse-dense training (DSD), which can improve the prediction accuracy for awide range of deep learning models. To efficiently implement "Deep Compression" in hardware,we developed EIE, the "Efficient Inference Engine", a domain-specific hardware accelerator thatperforms inference directly on the compressed model which significantly saves memory bandwidth.Taking advantage of the compressed model, and being able to deal with the irregular computationpattern efficiently, EIE improves the speed by 13?and energy efficiency by 3,400?over GPU
