    1. However, I do feel that the way that he speaks is particu-larly African American. Th is refers more to his rhetoric, intona-tion, and style. However, his speech or the extent to which he plays up his Black manner of speaking varies depending on his setting.

      what is a "black manner" of speaking? is the same as the statement above it that he speaks African American? does this imply the language or just a form of speaking like he can communicate and he knows what African Americans want?

      The website below explains that speaking African American is a unique vocabulary with different accents and grammar

    1. “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;(W) 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,(X) for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

      God instructed Adam and Eve to eat whatever they desired, though prohibited them to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In Robin Wall Kimmerer's "Skywoman Falling", she explained how in Indigenous culture, they follow Original Instructions. These "instructions" are not rules but rather guidelines for each person. Kimmerer explains how during Skywoman's time, the first people's understanding of the Original Instructions were to care for the and have respect for hunted animals, value family, and hold respectful ceremonies for their beliefs.

    2. 19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals(AA) and all the birds in the sky.(AB) He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called(AC) each living creature,(AD) that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.

      God had given Adam the responsibility to name all living creatures on Earth after the first days of creation. In Ursula K. Le Guin’s “She Unnames Them”, the idea of how labels or given names could take away from “personal choice” and “freedom” was explored throughout the text. Instead of believing that humans are above animals and living creatures, Buddhists view animals as very sacred beings and are to be shown with respect and to never be harmed. They also believe that humans can be reborn as animals, all interconnected within one another, supporting their beliefs of showing extreme care towards animals and allowing them to live freely.

    3. 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman.(AR) 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,(AS) knowing good and evil.”

      This verse is referenced heavily throughout contemporary literature. The idea of being tricked or pressured into something you are told is wrong.

      the intertextual connection is to the classic tale of, "Little Red Riding Hood." The girl is strictly instructed by her Grandmother to stay on the path to her house. Instead, naive Little Red is tricked by the Wolf to telling her where she is going. The Wolf goes to the Grandmother's house and eats her.

    4. When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable(AT) for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.

      Despite being told by God that she and her husband were not allowed to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Eve gave into her temptations. The idea of the "forbidden fruit" has been carried into other pieces of literature, using an apple to symbolize a character's temptation leading to downfall.

      For example, in the fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, when Snow White eats the poisoned apple, offered by the evil witch, who parallels the serpent, she falls into a death-like sleep.

    5. he will crush[j] your head,(BL)    and you will strike his heel.”

      God curses the serpent after deceiving Eve in the garden, and creates "enmity between [the serpent] and the woman." In the "Harry Potter" series by JK Rowling, the serpent is a symbol of evil, and near the end of the books, is the only piece of evil left to destroy before good can truly be restored.

    1. Gary Nabhan has written, we can’t meaningfully proceed with healing, with restoration, without “re-story-ation.”

      This is an example of allusion- Robin Kimmerer is referencing Gary Nabhan's literature known as "Food from the Radical Center" without directly naming the text. This book relates how we eat with stories of collaboration, calling on each of us to restore the nation's capacity to feed and nourish. This is a connection to the message behind "Skywoman Falling."

    2. Tree of Life

      The 'Tree of Life' has been present throughout many cultures and religions across history. It has been known by many different names but the meaning is always a source of life or a creator. The ancient Egyptians, Christians, Myahs, and Assyrians all believed in this 'Tree of Life.'

    3. Original Instructions.

      These instructions are about creating peace with ourselves, others, and the land. The idea of pacifism and hospitality were encouraged. These are teachings that are passed down generation to generation among many Indigenous groups.

    4. Turtle Island

      Turtle Island is based on the belief that the land was created on the shell of a turtle. Hinduism also has the similar belief that the world is built on a turtle

    1. El matrimonio igualitario Argentina, Uruguay, México, Brasil y Colombia son los únicos países de América Latina que han legalizado el matrimonio de parejas homosexuales, con todas las condiciones legales que tienen los matrimonios convencionales. De igual manera, Holanda, Bélgica, Suecia, Alemania, Sudáfrica, España, Inglaterra, Portugal y otras 12 naciones más han hecho lo propio.   Entretanto, sólo 11 países permiten la unión civil entre parejas del mismo sexo (no incluye todos los derechos legítimos maritales) entre estos Ecuador, Chile, Austria, Italia y Grecia. Cambio de identidad El proceso de cambio de género o sexo es un proceso quirúrgico y psicológico que contempla el cambio físico. En la actualidad, naciones como Venezuela, Colombia, Uruguay, Bolivia y Perú permiten que la transformación también sea legal, con el cambio del nombre y género en los documentos de identidad de las personas LGBTI. Sin embargo, en Brasil y Argentina, este tipo de decretos han sido desaprobados o son procesos difíciles por lo riguroso de los exámenes y requisitos que truncan el derecho al trámite. Igualdad en derechos patrimoniales Las garantías, protecciones legales en los matrimonios tras el fallecimiento y divorcio también son logros alcanzados en menos de 20 años por la comunidad LGBTI. Pero estos aún están condicionados dependiendo del país, por la diferencia entre permitir la unión civil (algunos derechos de cónyuges) o el matrimonio igualitario (derechos legítimos).   Adopción homoparental Uruguay, México, Canadá (el primer país en permitirlo en 1999) y algunos estados de EE.UU. han legalizado la adopción para personas unidas del mismo sexo. Asimismo, España, Holanda, Francia y otros permiten que las parejas no heterosexuales puedan tener hijos por medio de la adopción legal. Protección a víctimas de discriminación Hasta 1948 la homosexualidad era considerada una enfermedad mental, pero esto cambió lo que permitió la apertura de sistemas de protección a víctimas de discriminación y agresión. En la actualidad, existen programas de atención social y judicial para el seguimiento de los casos de hostigamiento y asesinatos contra los homosexuales. Además hay coberturas de salud gratuitas para tratar enfermedades como el sida y la programas de integración laboral en distintas áreas.

    1. It will find there is "very little evidence that the virus is transmitted in schools",

      The reporter interviewed Professor Russel Viner, president of Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health. Apparently, a study was conducted through April to June which collected information of 20,000 students and 100 teachers yet there is no link to this study, did not get peer reviewed or published. It is all just claims at this point. We have no knowledge if these are private schools or public, if there were any safety measures in place, if this included online classes vs in class.

      However, according to CDC and the respected studies it cited, there seems to be lower transmission rates among children and transmission from child to family, but this remains inconclusive. There still needs to be more evidence to be gathered.

    1. If your hosting provider does not support HTTPS, the following options are available: You can contact your web hosting provider: tell them you want a free HTTPS certificate through Let’s Encrypt. You’re probably not the only one using your web hosting provider service who wants HTTPS. You can request that your web hosting provider offer Let’s Encrypt HTTPS certificates as a free part of their hosting package. An effective way to make this ask is through email, their help desk system, or by contacting the web hosting provider through social media. You can switch to a different web hosting provider. Find a web hosting provider who offers full HTTPS support as part of their web hosting package by checking our list. You might be able to use Certbot. If you have SSH access to the server your website is hosted on, you might be able to use Certbot. You will need to know the software and system your server is running on. After you confirm the software and system information, you can use the dropdown menus above to generate specific instructions for running Certbot on your server through the command line.
    1. ABSTRACTLet’s Encrypt is a free, open, and automated HTTPS certificate au-thority (CA) created to advance HTTPS adoption to the entire Web.Since its launch in late 2015, Let’s Encrypt has grown to become theworld’s largest HTTPS CA, accounting for more currently valid cer-tificates than all other browser-trusted CAs combined. By January2019, it had issued over 538 million certificates for 223 million do-main names. We describe how we built Let’s Encrypt, including thearchitecture of the CA software system (Boulder) and the structureof the organization that operates it (ISRG), and we discuss lessonslearned from the experience. We also describe the design of ACME,the IETF-standard protocol we created to automate CA–server inter-actions and certificate issuance, and survey the diverse ecosystemof ACME clients, including Certbot, a software agent we created toautomate HTTPS deployment. Finally, we measure Let’s Encrypt’simpact on the Web and the CA ecosystem. We hope that the successof Let’s Encrypt can provide a model for further enhancements tothe Web PKI and for future Internet security infrastructure.

    1. d the mother often says “Don’t be like niggers” when the children are bad. A frequent phrase from the father is, “Look how well a white man does things.”

      They are taught that the n-word is shameful and bad while acting white is somewhat a higher class that they should be aiming for. This passage reminds me of a poem that I read in the past named Incident by Countee Cullen. In it is the incidents of the narrators encounters with racism and how it affected them even by an older age. This passage is similar as in the mother telling her children how to act in a certain way according to a certain ethnicity is impactful in a negative way.

    1. 7-Eleven moves to support animal welfare By Nick Hall | 17 Feb 2019 View comments Global convenience chain, 7-Eleven has made major changes to its supplier sourcing agreement, eliminating caged eggs for the first time. The move follows ongoing criticism of the Australian cage egg farming industry, with several brands and chains making the early decision to move to wholly sustainable sourcing in-line with welfare standards. Working closely with suppliers across all states, 7-Eleven has now ensured that only free range eggs would be available for order by all stores. Clayton Ford, General Manager Corporate Affairs, 7-Eleven said the decision to phase out cage eggs was developed in accordance with franchisee wishes, with the convenience giant announcing it will increase support to assist in the transition. “Whilst our franchisees are free to engage with alternative suppliers due to our franchise agreement, we will continue to work alongside them to encourage their involvement in this initiative by sourcing free range eggs via our centralised supply chain,” Ford said. “We recognise that this is just one step, and we will continue to review animal welfare commitments in our supply chain and 7-Eleven branded products as opportunities arise.” Want to launch a convenience store of your own?

    1. WHEN it comes to the state of the environment, it’s easy to get swept up in the doom and gloom of it all. Global warming, high pollution levels, climate change and waste disposal all dominate the headlines, painting a bleak picture of what’s to come. But just because it seems hopeless doesn’t mean it is.T roubled times call for ingenious solutions, and Australia is home to some of the brightest ecovators in the world, like Robert Pascoe, Managing Director of environmental solutions company Closed Loop.Through its Simply Cups initiative, Closed Loop is tackling Australia’s overwhelming waste problem by teaming up with 7-Eleven to save 70 million coffee cups from landfill this year — equivalent to the number they sell each year. While the most sustainable option is forgoing a disposable cup for a reusable one, some circumstances are beyond your control. Like your inability to remember anything before you’ve had your morning coffee. Which is a bit of a catch 22, isn’t it? That’s why 7-Eleven are installing dedicated coffee cup recycling bins in over 200 of their stores nationally, as well as funding 50 other large-scale locations including offices, universities and construction sites as part of the initiative. Coffee cups are one of the largest contributors to litter waste in Australia, with an estimated one billion ending up in landfill each year because they are not recycled.Yep, unfortunately you read that right: one billion cups.Coffee cups are one of the largest contributors to litter waste in Australia, with an estimated one billion ending up in landfill each year because they are not recycled.“T here’s a lot of misinformation out there,” Mr Pascoe said. “The consumers aren’t at fault because ultimately they don’t know what can be recycled and what can’t. I think if we can get that information out there, then people will demand products that are made from recycled materials.”For the majority of us, learning that our disposable coffee cups fall into the category of what can’t be recycled is both confusing and devastating. But, as Mr Pascoe says: “You can’t unknow something once you know it.”“Part of the problem is they didn’t know they weren’t being recycled. A lot of people said, ‘oh no, I put my coffee cup into the recycling to be recycled’, but of course, they’re not,” he continued.A nd why is that, exactly? It’s because most paper coffee cups are lined with a waterproof plastic that makes them hard to recycle — but not impossible. And that’s where Simply Cups comes in. “We’ve come up with a system that can actually recycle these cups if we keep them separate. We’ve got technology available now to do it, but we have to have coffee cups kept as a separate stream. Or anything that has the plastic lining of milk cartons or juice boxes,” Mr Pascoe said. The technology he’s referring to is “kind of like an organic solvent” that works to separate compound materials. Invented by Dennis Collins in Ballarat, the technology was initially designed to separate the PVC material from the hessian used in truck liners and advertising banners.“Dennis called us and said, ‘I’ve got a solution for your coffee cups’,” Mr Pascoe said. “So now we’re building a plant that can process around 150 million coffee cups per year, which is about 1.5 thousand tonnes. That will only be about 10 per cent of disposable coffee cups alone, so we’re going to need quite a few of these plants eventually. We have the solution, but we really need the coffee cups. “That’s why we started the Simply Cups program.”And that’s where coffee addicts come in. Once they drop their coffee cups into a designated recycling bin, they will then be taken to a processing plant using this new technology. The inner plastic lining of the cups will be removed and then recycled into things like plastic outdoor furniture, safety equipment and food trays.A nother eco-minded initiative helping solve Australia’s waste problem is the anti food-waste website, Yume. The website fights food waste — which is a huge problem in Australia — by allowing consumers to buy surplus and unsold food from restaurants and cafes at half the price. The ‘wholesale marketplace for surplus food that saves you money while saving the planet’ shares the same idea as ‘YWaste’, an app allowing retailers to sell food that would otherwise be thrown away.Over its 40-year history, Patagonia has donated about $114 million to grassroots environmental organisations.

Their advertising has begged consumers not to buy things they don’t need (even their own products) and they’ve implemented a program that repairs their products for free rather than replace them. Their commitment to the environment is reflected in the materials of their products too; wetsuits are made of natural rubber and raincoats are made from recycled plastic bottles. This year, the company launched Patagonia Action Works, a digital platform that aims that aims to connect people with environmental nonprofits, helping them get involved through events, petitions, and volunteering.H &M, too, are doing their bit to close the loop on fashion waste with their global campaign encouraging customers to recycle their clothes. They launched their garment collecting initiative in 2013, asking customers to drop off any unwanted items from their closets. Depending on the condition of the clothing, the items are either distributed to second-hand stores for resale, or recycled into other items like yarn, rags, and insulation materials.And just look at Elon Musk. He’s raking in bajillions of dollars every minute almost exclusively thanks to Tesla and SolarCity, which have disrupted an entire industry.

We couldn’t think of a better union to nurture our brand’s commitment to naturality and sustainability,” said the Body Shop’s Communications Manager, Jessica Styles. “In 2016, The Body Shop launched its new sustainability plan, Enrich Not Exploit, supporting the brand’s vision to be the most ethical and sustainable global business in the world.”“All of us share the aim of doing business as a transformational force for good and a force for change for society and for the environment. We couldn’t think of a better union to nurture our brand’s commitment to naturality and sustainability,”Jessica Styles, Body Shop’s Communications Manager The plan set fourteen targets to help The Body Shop become a "truly sustainable business", including powering all its stores with 100 per cent renewable energy, overhauling product packaging by slashing the use of fossil fuel-based wrapping and designing new sustainable innovations. This year there’s a special focus on protecting Red Pandas in Nepal, a species currently on the endangered list.“Now more than ever, companies have the platforms and frameworks to not only voice doing good for the planet and people but to also act on it. The more we see big brands doing their bit, the more it becomes entrenched as something that not only employees but customers should be thinking about,” Styles said. “It’s the big corporations of the world that can help foster and influence this through their own businesses.” Skin care brand Youth to The People has made a conscience decision to use 100 per cent recyclable packaging. Co-founder Joe Cloyes says the decision reflects the brand’s philosophies.“We believe in creating as little waste as possible, we believe in cruelty-free products, and we believe in sourcing the best ingredients for your health and your skin. It's just that simple,” he said. “Modern consumers care about their environment just as much as they care about their healthy skin, and they're very much connected. We have found it's very important to people.”FIND OUT how many cups of coffee you could be recycling EVEry yearHow many cups of coffee do you drink every day?How many days per week do you drink coffee?How many weeks per year do you drink coffee?Calculatecups of coffeecould be recycled These are but a few eco-minded initiatives that offer Australians the chance to do their part in securing a cleaner future for generations to come.

They recognise enterprise and environmental responsibility can in fact go hand-in-hand.“I think every organisation should have a sustainability policy,” Mr Pascoe said. “There are plenty of organisations around that can have a positive impact on the environment. We’re talking about the effect they have on the environment, the way they consume energy, and the way they manage their waste. In my world, there’s no such thing as waste.” Over one billion cups end up in landfill each year because they are not recycled.

      "systematic domination of women by men" the beside statement is varies according to person to person, that is the right each one but according to my perspective the idea is wrong because after a long period of time each girl will feel some loneliness. This isolation can be avoided if you have some to care you. No women in the could be independent but they can live independently only a certain period after they miss something in their life. Everyone will leave you but the one who love you will stick with your downs and ups. Your parents will pass you but your husband be with you until something has happen.

    1. The Hispanic ChallengeThe persistent inflow of Hispanic immigrants threatens to divide the United States into two peoples, two cultures, and two languages. Unlike past immigrant groups, Mexicans and other Latinos have not assimilated into mainstream U.S. culture, forming instead their own political and linguistic enclaves --from Los Angeles to Miami --and rejecting the Anglo-Protestant values that built the American dream.

Thus, even though these numbers turned out to be exaggerated, the authority of their source—the INS—meant that they entered public discourse as a symbol of alarm.29For example, the December 1974 cover of the American Legion Magazinedepicted the United States being overrun by “illegal aliens” (Figure 1.1). Most of the cartoon people in the image are Mexicans storming, en masse, across the U.S.-Mexico border, breaking down a sign that reads “usa border” and another one reading “keep out.” Other immigrants are landing by boats along theEast Coast, flying in and swimming from the Caribbean, parachuting acrossthe Canadian border, and all of them are converging upon, and inundat-ing, the nation’s institutions, most notably welfare, education, housing, jobs, and medical care. Such images were to become more frequent in the nation’s magazines over the next three decades, contributing to an increasingly alarmist d

      I feel that cartoons (in magazines/newspapers/etc) always tend to implicate some type of "joke" because it is illustraited in a way that should just be a slap in the writst just because it is a drawing and it is "funny"because it is a cartoon. But there has been a a lot of cartoons HYSTORICALLY publicly published that no doubt has racism stamped all over it. No difference with this cartoon there is stereotypes of Mexicans with sombreros and almost racing to these facilities. I also think of the illustraitor and what type of person is he and what his/her intensions were to be using effort and tallent on something so RACIST.

    1. Paduans

      Paduans is a Venetian Italian city that was founded by the Trojan price Antenor in 1185 B.C after the destruction of Troy. Antenor who was the founder of the city was said to be a tradior of the Trojans and he delivered Palladio who was the tailsmans of troy to Odysseus and Diomedes and in exchange he recieved salvation for himself and his family. Today Paduans in known to be one of the most beautiful cities in Veneto.

    2. Florentine

      Florentine represents the political scene of Italy at the time and the physiology that ended up getting Dante exiled. Dante considered the Florentine politics to be mischievous, which is why he put a character that represented this in The Inferno. After being exiled, along with many others, Dante considered the results of the politics to be a sin.

    3. Filippo Argenti

      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. In The Inferno Filippo’s violent temper is highlighted in the story as a man who had crossed Dante.

    4. Phlegyas

      Phlegyas is the son of Mars (god of war) who became outraged after the god Apollo raped his daughter. Out of rage, he set fire to the temple of Apollo.

    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.

    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.

      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?

    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. 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.
