To Share Or Not To Share: Cancer And What Teachers Should Tell Students About It, Robert A. Eckhart 2011 Ohio State University - Main Campus

To Share Or Not To Share: Cancer And What Teachers Should Tell Students About It, Robert A. Eckhart

Robert A. Eckhart

How much personal information to disclose to students is a fundamental question teachers have been asking themselves for decades. How much should teachers tell their students – a lot or a little? How should they tell them –in class, or face-to-face? Should the teacher only tell their students in a limited manner and then not answer questions, or should they be prepared to answer any and all questions the students might have? These are difficult questions, but if the teacher approaches the disclosure in the right way – avoiding irrelevant, overly negative, or offensive disclosures – it can be a positive for both ...


Formal Democracy, Structural Violence, And The Possibility Of "Perpetual Peace.", Andrew Pierce 2011 Sacred Heart University

Formal Democracy, Structural Violence, And The Possibility Of "Perpetual Peace.", Andrew Pierce

Andrew J. Pierce

In this paper, I revisit and evaluate Kant’s prerequisites for “perpetual peace,” including the claim, central to contemporary political rhetoric, that formal democracy produces peace. I argue that formal democracy alone is insufficient to address the kinds of deep-rooted structural violence that ultimately manifest in terrorism and other forms of direct violence. I claim that the attempt to eliminate structural violence, and so achieve real “perpetual peace,” requires a more substantive sort of democracy, of which the United States and the West remain poor examples. It requires a political critique that goes deeper than just the critique of state ...

Isaiah 7,14 - Virgin Or Maiden?, Jordan P. Ballard 2011 Liberty University

Isaiah 7,14 - Virgin Or Maiden?, Jordan P. Ballard

Jordan P Ballard

The best definition of ’almah is “young, unmarried woman who is a virgin.” This definition is derived from the use of ’almah in Genesis 24:43, and it easily fits each of the verses where ’almah appears, depending on the interpretation. The term ’almah includes both the idea of age and virginity with an emphasis on “marriageableness.” This definition also makes good sense of Isaiah 7:14 LXX and Matthew 1:23 which translate ’almah with parthenos, the normal Greek word for “virgin.” Although the interpretation of the Immanuel prophecy involves more than the meaning of ’almah, the proper translation ...

Preface: Monsters And Mormons, Terryl Givens 2011 University of Richmond

Preface: Monsters And Mormons, Terryl Givens

English Faculty Publications

In the nineteenth century, Mormonism seemed grist for everybody's mill. Humorists like Artemus Ward and Mark Twain made hay out of polygamy; conspiracy theorists like Thomas deWitt Talmage imputed President Garfield's assassination to the Mormons; pseudo-memoirists like "Maria Ward" recounted their seduction, imprisonment, and torture at the hands of Mormon mesmerists; the Republican jump-started their political party with a promise to expunge the Mormon "relic of barbarism"; and pulp fiction writers and serious novelists alike fueled sales with stories of bloodthirsty Danites, lecherous elders, and grief maddened Mormon wives who murdered competitors.

African American Literature By Writers Of Caribbean Descent, Daryl Cumber Dance

English Faculty Publications

They dubbed it the Port of No Return. When their ancestors left that port at Elmira Beach, Ghana – or Goree Island, Senegal, or any of a number of similar African ports – and set out on the perilous journey over the ocean to the Americas, there was no going back for the New World Negroes. That is what for most Africans in the Americas was the beginning of their history. Whether resident in a small island nation or in the American colonies, whether under the domain of a British, Spanish, French, or Dutch colonial power, and whether shuttled back and forth ...

Imagining Jefferson And Hemings In Paris, Suzanne W. Jones

English Faculty Publications

In Yearning: Race, Gender, and Cultural Politics, cultural critic Bell Hooks argues that "no one seems to know how to tell the story" of white men romantically involved with slave women because long ago another story supplanted it: "that story, invented by white men, is about the overwhelming desperate longing black men have to sexually violate the bodies of white women." Narratives of white exploitation and black solidarity have made it difficult to imagine consensual sex and impossible to imagine love of any kind across the color line in the plantation South. Hooks predicted that the suppressed story, if told ...

The Codex Of Tlaxcala: Indigenous Petitions And The Discourse Of Heterarchy., Jeanne Gillespie

JEANNE GILLESPIE

As the colony of Nueva España emerged, the indigenous Tlaxcalans, who had supported Cortés in the defeat of the Mexica-Tenochca and their allies, developed detailed narratives to document their participation in the colonial endeavor. These newest and most fervent Spanish colonial subjects accompanied explorations and eventually were pressed into relocation to establish colonial settlements in areas where the indigenous population was not as supportive of the European settlements. Tlaxcalans accompanied expeditions to Central America, the Pacific coast, northward along the Gulf Coast and to the northwest into what is today the US Southwest, including the ill-fated and extremely controversial trip ...

“The World Must Know What Happened, And Never Forget,” Dwight David Eisenhower, Control Of Masturbation, Missiles, Weapons, And The Holocaust-How Control Of Difference In One Region Can Affect The Whole World, James T. Struck

James T Struck

The world must know what happened here and never forget was Eisenhower's gift to us on seeing the Nazi death camps. Such a policy of telling the world about something can be wonderful to let us understand the world better and horrible in bringing more parties into an action without need. Still, National Socialists stated that they imitated US disability and prison experimentation in Illinois. Telling the whole world about the Holocaust includes telling the whole world about US disability discrimination. Control of masturbation led to sterilization policies throughout the US and expanded into control of difference within National ...

Termwiki: A New Terminology Management System, Uwe Muegge 2011 SelectedWorks

Termwiki: A New Terminology Management System, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

While widely recognized as a best practice, comprehensive terminology management is typically not part of most translation and localization projects. Many factors may be contributing to this sorry state of affairs, but the lack of an easy-to-use, no-cost/low-cost, standards-based tool for centralized, collaborative terminology management certainly ranks high among them. TermWiki is a free open source initiative that employs the familiar wiki technology to provide a powerful yet user-friendly terminology management solution to organizations of any size - including freelance translators. This paper introduces the reader to the promise and limitations of TermWiki, and suggests possible uses in translator training.
