Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender 2018 Fordham University

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender

Student Theses 2015-Present

This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...

Event Planner Sensitivity To The Needs Of Individuals With Visual Disability At Meetings And Events, Gina Fe G. Causin Ph.D., Tessa Mccarthy Ph.D.

Journal of Human Services: Training, Research, and Practice

Special events, such as fairs, conventions, ballgames, and concerts are typically activities people attend to participate in the festivities and enjoy with friends and family members. For individuals with disabilities, however, these types of events can create more challenges than enjoyment. Despite a thorough review of the literature, no studies were found which evaluated the experiences of individuals who are blind and have visual impairments at events and meetings. The aim of this study was to determine the current level of accessibility at meetings perceived by consumers who are blind and visually impaired. Respondents to the survey indicated many obstacles ...


Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga 2017 California State University, San Bernardino

Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

This project aims to help teachers learn how to connect with their students of different cultural backgrounds.

This project will also have a handbook to help teachers learn about their students’ backgrounds and understand how culture plays a role in the learning process. The handbook will review understanding the demographics of the school, cultural mismatch, cultural communication, and instructional communication. These ...

Forty years from now ... an era far from the mind's eye of today, or perhaps not so far, measured on the scale of the past altogether.

"Is that how I really look?" "That's not my voice!" People are amazed that the camera and the tape recorder are accurate reproductions of appearance and sound. Sometimes, though, these devices are the inspiration for changes which will improve undesirable features in a personality.

A chocolate malt and a peanut butter and bacon sandwich, or a pizza and a bottle of pop? When you place your order for this imaginary, late-evening snack, you will also be showing your age by choosing the food that was a fad during your college years.

New ideas and products are forever popping up in the world of interior decoration, and new and exciting trends are always in swing.

I graduated in 1957, so "home ec" as I knew it probably isn't too different from what you have today. Yet, I do know of several changes that seem strange to my "old-grad" ears.

The Forties saw the beginning and the end of the War. In the first part a man was either 4-F or in the service, and the campus ratio wasn't as favorable to women as usual. The shift brought more women to Iowa State College because families didn't have to pay to put their sons through school, and they sent their daughters. In 1941, home economics enrollment hit a peak of nearly 1,800 students.

There are two college-age persons who live at our house and call me "Mom," and they are reasonably well-informed about American history, sociology, economics, and other aspects of our culture. Yet they have one blind spot. They believe that the time of their parent's youth is known as the Olden Days; everyone who lived then was a righteous, thrifty, ambitious "square," and certainly college life bore no resemblance to the enlightened way they are living it now.

The Terrible Twenties took over our lives while I was a freshman at Ames. Following on the heels of the "War To End Wars," there were so many changes in our way of life that our generation was wholly unaware we were to become the symbol of the great upheaval in social traditions. We just considered ourselves a little more "progressive" than older brothers and sisters- considerably more progressive than our parents!
