      Filippo is based on a Black Guelph, Charles of Valoi, Dante’s political enemy. Charles of Valoi entered Florence with the other Black Guelphs and destroyed much of the city within a few days. The harsh treatment that Filippo sufferers in The Inferno is payback for an earlier offense that the real life Charles of Valoi had done.

    1. Text-Based SourcesSummary of the Final Report of QTD Working Group II.1Nikhar Gaikwad, Veronica Herreraand Robert Mickey*

      ShareKnowledge #QualitativeUAEM

      Al analizar el contenido del texto "Text-Based Sources" (American Political Science Association Organized Section for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research, Qualitative Transparency Deliberations, Working Group Final Reports, Report II.1); hemos determinado algunas reflexiones que deseamos compartir.

    2. The report describes several types of transparency-enhancing practices relevant to text-based sources. Some of these practices improve transparency regarding the process of generating evidence.Clearly identifying asource's locationhelps other researcherslocate and evaluate evidence, expanding the scope and reach of one's research

      Cabe destacar que las recientes discusiones que han surgido sobre la transparencia de la investigación cualitativa en la Ciencia Política han sido un tema de debate serio, de tal manera que ha sido necesario implementar un código de ética con el objetivo de aumentar y reforzar la transparencia en las fuentes basas en texto.

    3. rk.Drawing on QTD deliberations, existing scholarly work, and our own reflections, we discuss a range of transparency-enhancing practices and technologies, the costs and risks attendant with each, and their potential benefit

      Sabemos que gran parte de la investigación considerada "cualitativa" se basa, en el análisis de documentos (fuentes basadas en texto) y que todo este proceso implica un costo, pero es necesario y garantiza una mejor calidad de la información.

      Por esta razón, sostenemos que la transparencia en la información que empleamos de las fuentes basadas en texto ayuda a otorgar mayor claridad en el proceso de investigación y permite adquirir nuevos conocimientos.

    4. Recent discussions about transparency in political science have become fraught with concernsover replicability or even scholarly misconduct. The report of the QTD Working Group on Text-Based Sources emphasizesinstead that the ultimate goal of augmenting transparency is to increase our ability to evaluate evidentiary claims, build on prior research, and produce better knowledge.

      Consideramos que de suma importancia implementar la transparencia en la metodología de selección de las fuentes basadas en texto que utilizamos para compartir información pública.

      Para ello, es necesario hacer un proceso analítico de deliberación de las fuentes basadas en texto; esto consiste en evaluar si los datos que se compartirán abiertamente son "verídicos".

    1. the manuscripts that were discovered nine years ago, now in the University of Arkansas library with many of her other papers, are mostly complete and easily performed.

      I do recall this happening way more than it should. Not only just A.A but many other colored people. Thousands of art just now being discovered. As a woman of afo-latina descent it makes me proud to know more and more blacks of all ethnicities are becoming prominent in art today.

    1. In this way, anthropologists often attemptto understand and appreciate culture from the point of view of the people within it.

      This statement reminds me of when I took an anthropology class here at Lander and our professor showed us a documentary about Julia Roberts living with a Mongolian nomad family for days to learn about and live their culture. The link I have attached is just one part of the documentary. Here she is learning about the Mongolian's relationship with wild horses.

    1. This modulefocuses on biases against social groups,which social psychologists sort intoemotional prejudices, mental stereotypes,and behavioral discrimination. Thesethree aspects of bias are related, but theyeach can occur separately from the others(Dovidio & Gaertner, 2010; Fiske, 1998). Forexample, sometimes people have anegative, emotional reaction to a socialgroup (prejudice) without knowing even themost superficial reasons to dislike them(stereotypes).

      The article talks about how prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination has a correlation, but can happen separately. I do believe that this is true. You can be prejudice, stereotypical and discriminate towards others and not be aware. You see this happen a lot in this society. This are the people that see no wrong in there behavior and thinks society is suppose to keep accepting there behavior. Times have change from the 70's to now.

    1. gender stereotypes, or thebeliefs and expectations people holdabout the typical characteristics, preferences,and behaviors of men and women. Aperson’s gender identity refers to theirpsychological sense of being male orfemale.

      I think in today's society a lot of people struggle with gender stereotypes and their identity. Society is set up to believe that the man is masculine and the women is feminine, and that if those traits are switched, then it's wrong. It's hard teaching a child about gender stereotypes because you don't want your child to feel as though he or she can not do certain things, but it happens which "may or may not" cause a crisis with their gender identity. You want the child to explore their options but in this case a lot of parents may not agree because they don't want to cause confusion. According to the article gender stereotypes, or the beliefs and expectations people hold about the typical characteristics, preferences,and behaviors of men and women. A person’s gender identity refers to their psychological sense of being male or female.

    1. "What is regarded as important and interesting is what is likely to be recognised by others as important and interesting, and thus to make the man who produces it appear more important and interesting in the eye of others."

      There are many different reasons scientists research different subject matters. These intentions are not always known to the public, but the public has a sense of hope that these intentions are in the interest of the people and the research is done to better those who will be affected. The research to find a cure to cancer is a prime example where the people hope this research is done to better the people. The public hopes that scientists will find a cure to save their loved ones. However, this quote bursts this bubble of hope, in a sense. It takes away the innocence of these good intentions and creates doubt in the minds of the public. This quote makes the people wonder if research is being conducted to further the professional reputation of the scientists by being the first one to discover a knew piece of information and create history. People often default to thinking others have the best intentions in mind, but this quote brings a sense of darkness about that innocence. Is research really conducted to benefit the public, or is it done so a scientist can become a piece of history?

    1. City officials can actually help if they go out into the streets and ask real people what actually is going on. Something on blogs and on polls arent true, they dont always speak the truth. If they were to go out to communities and build relationships with people, they would have a clearer understanding of what is going on.

    2. I dont believe some of this, blacks never had a voice during . That time if they were to speak up during that time they would often get punished. Blacks had no say in there freedom, slavery wasn't abolished to help slaves, Abraham Lincoln didn't do it out of the kindness out of his heart.

    1. El Mecanismo de Tecnologías Limpias y El Mercado de Bonos de Carbono se encuentran disponibles para el establecimiento de convenios multilaterales para aprovechar las oportunidades de captura de carbono por las plantaciones forestales del norte de México.

      Un plus en la investigación, que podría aplicarse en mi región en plantaciones forestales.

    2. Los datos dasométricos de 25 cuadrantes de 20m x 30m fueron levantados en las plantaciones de los ejidos mencionados anteriormente. La edad de las plantaciones varió desde 6 hasta 20 años para tener una crono secuencia definida y poder modelar en tiempo el crecimiento en volumen, área basal y densidad a nivel del rodal.

      Podría considerar la edad de la plantación a estudiar y realizar dicha cronosecuencia.

    1. prosum-ers

      A person who influences the purchase of a product; they don't only consume it, they convince others to buy it by consuming it themselves. e.g. a you-tuber who is sent clothing, wears that clothing in a video, and then links it in their video as a product for purchase and gets money for it.

    1. Ironically, DWYL reinforces exploitation even within the so-called lovable professions where off-the-clock, underpaid, or unpaid labor is the new norm:

      Doing what you love, isolates and degrades other workforces and elevates others and more so, the ones of higher economic class. One should be paid fair dues as per their work and have good working conditions. She wants people to realize that they deserve goods jobs and they should never settle for less in the name of doing what they love.

    2. limits

      The article argues different theories regarding doing what is right, with the bigger question being is it wrong for people to strive to be able to do what they love. But, at the same time, what is the limit of people seeking what they love without overstepping the boundaries?

      Boris Bikes were created by Boris Johnson as an alternative mode of transport that is eco friendly and promote the idea of healthy living. However, they cost money, money that many people cannot afford to splurge on.

    2. tabula rasa model

      Tabula Rasa refers to a theory that connects to purity and a blank canvas. In this sense, it became unnecessary as what was once a blank canvas due to a fire was gentrified.

    1. The National Palace Museum, Taipei, is recognized globally as the leading research institution for Chinese art, and the cultural objects housed in it have lent legitimacy to the Taipei government’s claims that it is the true steward of Chinese culture.

      Top quality/ leading museums allow ethnic groups to understand their traditional cultures which this is one of the indispensable factors in comprehensive education, therefore, I think a well- equipped museum is needed.

    1. Whistle-blowers and dissidents might need to use a different platform.)

      The way that he casually mentions whistle blowers and dissidents is troubling to say the least. Also, will dig up studies, but removing anonymity hasn't really shown to decrease trolling or other bad behavior. Also, "privacy" anyone?

    1. wholly destitute of all education but what he received in common with other domesticated animals, enjoying no advantages that could lead him to suppose himself superior to the beasts, his fellow servants.

      This is an accurate description of chattel slavery. Slaves were dehumanized to justify treating them inhumanely. They could be bought, sold, traded, and inherited just as livestock.

    1. The Web We Need to Give Students

      The title itself is expressive towards the fact that the educational system has been trying to come up with many ways to help students manage their understanding of the web in general.

      some 170 bills proposed so far ...

      Its no surprise tha tthe schools can share data with companies and researchers for their own benefits. Some of these actions are violations of privacy laws.

      arguments that restrictions on data might hinder research or the development of learning analytics or data-driven educational software.

      Unbelievable! The fact that there is actually a problem with the fact that students or anyone wants their privacy, but abusing companies and businesses can't handle invading others privacies is shocking. It seems to be a threat to have some privacy.

      Is it crazy that this reminds me of how the government wants to control the human minds?

      All the proof is there with telephone records, where the NSA breaches computers and cellphones of the public in order to see who they communicate with.

      Countries like Ethiopia; the government controls what the people view on their TV screens. They have complete control of the internet and everything is vetted. Privacy laws has passed! Regardless, no one is safe. For example: Hackers have had access to celebrity iCloud accounts, and exposed everything.

      The Domain of One’s Own initiative

      Does it really protect our identities?

      Tumblr?

      Virginia Woolf in 1929 famously demanded in A Room of One’s Own — the necessity of a personal place to write.

      Great analogy! Comparing how sometimes people need to be in a room all on their own in order to clear their minds and focus on their thoughts on paper to also how they express themselves in the web is a good analogy.

      ... the Domains initiative provides students and faculty with their own Web domain.

      So, the schools are promising complete privacy?

      ...the domain and all its content are the student’s to take with them.

      Sounds good!

      Cyberinfrastructure

      To be able to be oneself is great. Most people feel as if their best selves are expressed online rather than real life face-to-face interactions.

      Tumblr is a great example. Each page is unique to ones own self. That is what Tumblr sells, your own domain.

      Digital Portfolio

      Everyone is different. Sounds exciting to see what my domain would look like.

      High school...

      Kids under 13 already have iPhones, iPads, tablets and laptops. They are very aware to the technology world at a very young age. This domain would most likely help them control what they showcase online, before they grow older. Leaving a trail of good data would benefit them in the future.

      Digital citizenship:

      It teaches students and instructors how to use technology the right way.

      What is appropriate, and what is not appropriate?

      Seldom incluse students' input...

      Students already developed rich social lives.

      Google doc= easy access to share ones work.

      Leaving data trails behind.

      Understanding options on changes made?

      Being educated on what your privacy options are on the internet is a good way of protecting your work.

      Student own their own domain- learning portfolio can travel with them.

      If the students started using this new domain earlier in their lives, there should be less problems in schools coming up with positive research when it comes to the growth of the students on their data usages.

      School district IT is not the right steward for student work: the student is.

      So to my understanding, if the student is in the school, one has to remember to move around the files saved in the domain. The school is not responsible for any data lost, because the student is responsible for all their work.

      Much better position to control their work...

      If all of this is true and valid, it should not be a big deal then for the student to post what ever they want on their domain. No matter how extreme, and excessive it seems, if that is how they view themselves, their domain would be as unique as their personalities.

    1. If you believe in equality

      I chose this video because it gives you the opportunity to see Emma's facial expressions during a part of the speech and also get a look at her body language and facial expressions.

    2. usness for this speech and in my m

      Watson was criticised in March 2017 for a photograph published by Vanity Fair in which her breasts are partly visible

    3. All I know is that I care about this problem

      Emma Watson took the top spot on the AskMen "Top 99 Outstanding Women 2015" list on the strength of having "thrown her back" into women's rights issues.

    4. decided that I was a feminist,

      Logos. Watson made her first country visit as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador to Uruguay where she gave a speech highlighting the need for women's political participation.

    5. When I was 8, I was confused for being called bossy

      This is pathos because she wants us to feel bad about the fact that she was starting to question herself and getting called names at only age 8.

    6. We want to end gender inequality, and to do this, we need everyone involved

      This is also ethos because she uses the word 'we' again to show us that there is more than one person working on this problem.

    7. We want to try and make sure that it’s tangible.

      Emma wants you to trust her with this issue, so she is using words such as 'we' and 'make sure' to gain her audience's trust that she'll help this issue.

    1. Driving this shift is Taiwan’s underlying geopolitical strategy to decrease its dependence on Mainland China and increase its ties with the rest of Asia.

      Taiwan's goals on becoming a pan-Asian identity through decreasing its dependence on Mainland China may not have been the best or well thought out plan. This is because it can cause a lot of negative outcomes. One reason may be that the US does not recognise Taiwan's Independence, ending all diplomatic relations with them but not with China. This is a prime example of how even though Taiwan is looking for change and trying to become pan-Asian, the rest of the world may not share their ideology.

    2. The fraught United States presidential election cycle of 2016 has revealed a country divided along geographical and ideological lines. It has also bolstered a narrative of haves and have-nots, pitting the so-called coastal elites against “heartland” America.

      The 2016 US presidential election caused a huge divide among the country both geographical and ideological. There was a divide against the coastal states and "heartland" America. Where economically large coastal states such as California had been won over by Hillary, from the democrats. This was due to sharing similar values and ideologies. On the other land the majority of heartland states had voted for Trump, the republican party.This was mainly because people in the heartland states were still affected by the financial crisis of 2008. There was economic revival for the coastal states, heartland America was still affected. Thus this caused geographical and ideological division among the American people.

    3. The fraught United States presidential election cycle of 2016

      Donald Trump in the United States presidential election presumed victory

    4. Taiwanese identity grew more distinct from Mainland China

      Taiwan and its attempts to legitimise itself as a sovereign state seperate from china -

      "Trump infuriated China’s leadership when he spoke to Tsai on the phone and later made separate comments questioning the longstanding “one China” policy, under which the US notionally accepts Beijing’s view that Taiwan is part of China. The US does not officially host Taiwanese leaders. Taiwan has been self-governing and de facto independent since the end of China’s civil war. Beijing regards it as a renegade province".

      Green Day drew inspiration from Chinese communist propaganda art the band saw in art galleries on Melrose Avenue. The band aimed for the cover to be "at once uniform and powerful". The album's artwork—"a Posada-stark print of a heart-shaped hand grenade gripped in a blood-soaked fist"—is representative of its political content.

    1. The topic was strong and to the point, and had plenty of background information. However, there were some contradictions in the essay, like when he said every president so far has discussed benefits of NASA and supports it, but then states that Obama cut some of its funding. Obama actually did this to focus on other current issues, but he now fully supports the manned mission to Mars. https://capitalresearch.org/2016/07/nasa/

    1. Until Let’s Encrypt fixes their bullshit, the CAcert certificate stays.

      As of now (2016-09-20), xaymar.com actually does use a certificate issued by Let's Encrypt. It would be very interesting to read a follow-up article about the reasons that lead to this switch. Sadly, I haven't been able to find one.

    1. I look at my sex, my troubling sex, and wonder · how it can be redeemed, how I can save it from the knife. The jour-ney to the grave is already begun, the journey to corruption is, al-ways, already, half over. Yet, the key to my salvation, which cannot save my body, is hidden in my flesh.

      From this quote we can see the outcome of all the guilt and shame David felt for having homosexual relations. David believes that he is going to die due to the nonredeemable actions he's done. His journey to death has already begun due to this as well. I think that the societal judgments of homosexuality caused David to have negative thoughts about his life and body in the end. When he was with Hella he could push it aside but now that he is alone he's faced with the harshness of his reality. That how he's been living his life is 'wrong'.

    2. The morning weighs on my shoulders with the dreadful weight of hope an4 I take the blue envelope which Jacques has sent me and tear it sl6wly into many pieces, watching them . .. . I dance in the wind, watchiμg the wind carry them away. Yet, as I turn and begin walking tovyard the waiting people, the wind blows some of them back on me. ]

      Reading this last paragraph, it seems that not even David knows what will happen next in his life. The idea of having hope that something positive will happen in his life now. Or Giovanni won't be executed is weighing him down because even he knows that isn't realistic. Since the ending is so ambiguous I personally took David tearing the envelope Jacques sent him slowly as him trying to start over, but when he threw it in the wind as he was walking away the wind blows it back to him. Making me believe that even though he wants to start over and forget what has happened he won't be able to move forward because something in his past will keep bringing him down. I also believe that the reason why Baldwin made the ending so ambiguous is because during that time maybe he didn’t know what to do next or how to move on. It was said that Giovanni’s room was based off of actual events that happened to Baldwin before he starting writing this book. Baldwin was in a love affair with a man named Lucien Happersberger who ended up marrying a women and that’s why the book is dedicated to Lucien.

      I tagged an article where Baldwin talks about Giovanni's Room and what it means to him as well as a very short clip of an interview with Baldwin.

    1. taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves,

      This is the first of many racist comments that take place throughout the book. The sheer volume of comments made in regards to race in the entire book is enough proof to answer the question of, is the book racist or about racism? I argue that the book is not racist, but instead that it is realist. I also argue that the public finds this book so controversial because Conrad is giving us a fairly accurate portrayal of how cruel humans can be. I believe that the book is racist because he also writes in regards to the wrongs of colonialism. His statements that some view as racist are merely observations of an unbalanced social hierarchy. You can tell this also because of the fact that he remains very neutral in all controversial comments.

    1. We can now begin to see that the reason for why Du Bois was marginalized, and why his influence has been obscured, is not just his skin color. It is also that he was intellectual insurrectionary – intellectually heterodox – challenging the hegemony of scientific racism upon which white sociology had been mounted at the time.

      Du Bois probably didn't gain much recognition on the work he did for Sociology because of his involvement in the Civil Rights movement. Go had said that he had dangerous ideas, which, at the time, he did. He was very involved in different groups that protested against the discrimination that was happening at the time. This is what he was more known for. Higher officials probably didn't want give more attention to Du Bois than he already had gained, so they didn't credit him for his work in Sociology.

    1. littleblack man—the smallest I have ever see

      As shown in an example earlier, in which Holmes references a book for descriptions of various nationalities, this quote is another example of Doyle giving an idea of the diversity in London at this time. As also explained in the article I have attached, while many different nationalities had migrated to London at this time very few were of different appearance.

      The Declaration of Independence impacted the United States in more ways than one, Jefferson makes clear when he states "to prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world;" he is referring to the reign of the King of Great Britain who has brought injuries and tyranny over the states. He wants his people to realize the corruption and wrongdoings that the king has caused. Jefferson is essentially saying that people should be uncorrupt in this new world and man should strive to preserve the pureness of this country keeping it from falsehood and injustice. It sparked my attention when I came across a newspaper titled "The North Briton" written by J. Wilkes and others which contained very similar diction and ideals of society during that time period. Wilkes is criticizing King George III for his speech in favor of the Treaty of Paris ending the Seven Year’s War; he states “Articles 15 is for having corrupted the sacred fountain of truth and put falsehoods into the mouth of Majesty, in several speeches made in parliament.” Wilkes is trying to uncover the king’s corruption and bring to light that he is lying to his people which ties closely to Jefferson’s actions and morals of being uncorrupt. Most people carried similar beliefs in the United States during the 18th century, it is very possible that the Wilkes could have been from Jefferson's era carrying the same ideals and values as him due to similar style of writing, choice of diction, and beliefs.

It sparked my attention when I came across a monthly chronologer titled "The Gentleman's and London magazine" that contained very similar diction and ideals of society during that time period. It is noticed that humans are habitual creatures and mimic their peers within their society creating a universal diction within that community. Most people carried similar beliefs in the United States during the 18th century since most citizens were of Christian faith it is very possible that the writers of the "Gentleman's and London Magazine" could have been from Jefferson's era having the same ideals and values as him due to similar style of writing and choice of diction.
