What Makes A Theory Of Infinitesimals Useful? A View By Klein And Fraenkel, Vladimir Kanovei, Karin Katz, Mikhail Katz, Thomas Mormann

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Felix Klein and Abraham Fraenkel each formulated a criterion for a theory of infinitesimals to be successful, in terms of the feasibility of implementation of the Mean Value Theorem. We explore the evolution of the idea over the past century, and the role of Abraham Robinson's framework therein.

Clayton Christensen, Joseph Smith Jr. And Disruptive Innovation.Pdf, Gavin Ferriby 2018 Sacred Heart University

Clayton Christensen, Joseph Smith Jr. And Disruptive Innovation.Pdf, Gavin Ferriby

Peter Gavin Ferriby

Christensen’s theory of disruptive innovation has been popularly successful but faced increasing scrutiny in past years.  Christensen is a Latter-day Saint, and the career of Joseph Smith, Jr. and his ideas form a powerful backdrop for Christen’s theory.   Smith's role as an innovator, the "disruption" of Mormon proclamation, and the America that received or rejected his message all form an enduring, cultural matrix that later facilitated the popularization of “disruptive innovation” as an idea. Uncritical embrace of the popular theory, especially in higher education, implies acceptance of a cultural assumptions and suggest that the theory is less ...

Succor In Smoke: A Historical And Comparative Analysis Of Incense And Moxibustion As Similar Agents Of Edification And Self-Cultivation, Hannah E. Matulek

Black & Gold

Since its origins in the Shang Dynasty nearly 3,000 years ago, traditional Chinese medicine has undergone many dramatic shifts and adapted to a wide range of cultural, social, religious and foreign pressures. One of the most notable changes is the attribution of the etiology of disease (as well as general poor health and behaviors) from volatile and dissatisfied external forces to manageable internal forces. This allowed for a flourishing of thought in Chinese medicine, for once granting an individual the power to influence his or her own health. Three religions—Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism—were also introduced to China ...


It’S Like Déjà Vu All Over Again: Seismic Changes In The American Experiment, David King 2018 Valparaiso University

It’S Like Déjà Vu All Over Again: Seismic Changes In The American Experiment, David King

Bridge/Work

“I’ve never seen anything like this.” “Is this the end of the country?”

In 2016, it seemed that both of those statements, or something similar, was on the tongues of nearly every American. No matter who you supported, there seemed to be something entirely new about the election cycle that the nation found itself in. There is no doubt that for this generation, the 2016 election is a watershed moment for the United States. For the U.S., however, watershed moments in democracy are not the exception but the rule. To fully understand how our democracy transitions, one must ...

SAJJAD KHAKSARI

Regrettably, the conventional European freight / passenger transportation is fundamentally based on Crude Oil and Petroleum Products (such as fossil fuels, gasoline, benzine, avgas, all plastic components in all kind of vehicles, tires, lubricant greases, and bitumen for asphalt of road pavements). 

Thoughtfully, (EUROSTAT, 2017: Page 35) illustrates an increase of about 600 billion tonne-kilometres (tkm) transported via road from 1995 to 2007. Please, consider that the European freight transportation FAILURE in 2008/9 had caused by the rise of Crude Oil PRICE

Besides, base on EIA report, in 2016, the United States consumed a total of 7.21 billion barrels ...

The Amazons Of Exekias And Eupolis: Demystifying Changes In Gender Roles, Marisa Anne Infante

SMU Journal of Undergraduate Research

n this paper, I will examine the changing gender roles of women as the Athenian government changes from a tyranny in the Archaic period to a democracy in the Classical period by comparing a Black-Figure Amphora, which depicts an image of Achilles Killing Penthesilea, by Exekias and a Red-Figure Column Krater, which depicts an image of an Amazon on Side A and an unidentified figure on Side B, by Eupolis. The creation of democracy was not the universal celebration that it is often praised to be in modern times. I will demonstrate this through a visual analysis of how the ...

Evaluation Of The Prophecies In Daniel 9:25-26 In Order To Confirm The Origin Of The Bible, Robert C. Ordemann 2018 Liberty University

Evaluation Of The Prophecies In Daniel 9:25-26 In Order To Confirm The Origin Of The Bible, Robert C. Ordemann

Diligence: Journal of the Liberty University Online Religion Capstone in Research and Scholarship

Throughout history, there has been a great effort to corroborate the truth recorded in the Bible. Many linguists, scholars, historians, and archeologists have perused careers in order accurately supporting the Bible with evaluated evidence. However, one of the paramount necessities is to be able to incorporate all these disciplines together in an effort to prove that the Bible was given by Divine Revelation. Further one of the most significant keys tools that God has provided for us to authenticate the Scriptures original nature is predictive prophecy. When prophecy is given and later appropriately fulfilled it enables scholars the ability to ...

اعتراض حق مردم است, Mohammad Khaksari 2018 Teacher's Pen (Iranian Independent Education Journal)

اعتراض حق مردم است, Mohammad Khaksari

Mohammad Khaksari


موضوع: اعتراض  حق مردم است 

سلام همکاران فرهنگی، در کشور های  جریان آزاد اطلاعات «اعتراض»‌ حق مردم است. در قالب «تجمع، اعتصاب، رسانه ها» و موارد دیگر انجام می گیرد و امنیت ملی را هم به خطر نمی اندازد اما در کشورهایی که «جریان آزاد اطلاعات» وجود ندارد هر اعتراض مردمی را برچسب «مخالف امنیت ملی» می زنند. حتی در همین قانون اساسی بازنگری شده کنونی هم، هنوز اصول مختلفی مثل اصل ۲۷ وجود دارند که اعتراض و تجمع غیرمسلحانه را حق قانونی مردم می داند

یادم هست یکبار که وزارت اطلاعات اینجانب و همکار دیگری را به وزرات اطلاعات ...
