Bender the next day when I passd the place the gable end we had sat under was down and a heap of rubbish

‘Let us relate our stocious tales of last night!’ John Clare howls and Wisdom hoots at the memory of them fleeing – filching a lanthorn and a flagon of ale then dossing and drinking until dawn in a ramshackle shack which, by the morning, had completely caved in around them. ‘We were like barn owls on a beam,’ cries the poet, ‘outstaring, upstanding!’ ‘You, brother,’ tuts the Gypsy, ‘are still drunk or, any road, drunk on some idea.’

‘It is the poetry of night, Wisdom. That is the very barn you Gypsies used for your reveries and romancing.’ ‘It is where we slept, brother.

But it is a singing summer. We will wind willows into benders.’

‘Poetry is in season,’ laughs John, ‘Rooms woven from wound wood are like rooms of woven words.’ Wisdom looks at Clare – hard.

‘Poetry is not everything. You know that, John,’ smiles the Gypsy.

‘You are wrong,’ dances Clare. ‘Everything. Everything is poetry.’

Functions comprise statements that execute sequentially in the textual order in which they appear. A statement block is a series of statements appearing between braces (the {} tokens).

A declaration statement declares a new variable, optionally initializing the variable with an expression. A declaration statement ends in a semicolon. You may declare multiple variables of the same type in a comma-separated list. For example:

A constant declaration is like a variable declaration, except that it cannot be changed after it has been declared, and the initialization must occur with the declaration (more on this in Constants):

The scope of a local variable or local constant variable extends throughout the current block. You cannot declare another local variable with the same name in the current block or in any nested blocks.

Expression statements are expressions that are also valid statements. In practice, this means expressions that do something; in other words, expressions that:

Chapter Three: The power of hate in therapy

Karnac Books ePub

Mette Kjær Barfort

Therapists working with clients who suffer from personality disorders, especially those who are severely narcissistic, are inevitably exposed to intense emotions of hate and hateful fantasies. In my own clinical practice, I find it very challenging at times to deal with the powerful projections from this group of clients whose inner world and relationships are dominated by hate. Hateful clients have very little faith, sometimes no faith at all, in the existence of goodness in themselves and in others, and as a defensive reaction, they tend to attack and destroy their therapists’ empathy and interventions simply because they are experienced as threatening to their psychic existence. When exposed to these hateful attacks, strong countertransference feelings are evoked in the therapist, who may be experiencing the whole spectrum of emotions from anger and hate to guilt, despair and depression.

The strong emotion of hate can be enacted violently and overtly but is frequently transmitted through primitive forms of powerful projective identifications. This hateful non-verbal communication from the client is not always easy to register and understand for the therapist. They may feel overwhelmed and unable to maintain their own sense of analytic space and be unable to function as a container of the client’s hateful emotions. My focus in this paper is to look into what kind of powerful forces are at stake in therapy when the client is full of hate, and the therapist is filled with countertransference feelings while at the same time, struggling to maintain a neutral, playful and exploratory approach.

What Is in the Dart Platform?

Kathy Walrath O'Reilly Media ePub

Dart is more than just a language, its an entire platform for modern web developers.

Language specification:The Dart language is familiar, with a few new features such as optional typing and isolates.

Libraries:Core libraries provide functionality including collections, dates, and math, as well as HTML bindings, server-side I/O such as sockets, and even JSON.

Compiler to JavaScript:You can compile Dart programs to JavaScript that can run across the entire modern web.

VM:The virtual machine is built from the ground up to run Dart code natively. The VM runs on the command line for server-side applications, and can also be embedded into browsers for client-side applications.

Integration with Chromium:The Dart VM has been embedded into a build of Chromium, nicknamed Dartium, allowing native Dart applications to run without first being compiled to JavaScript.

Dart Editor:This lightweight editor, complete with syntax highlighting and code completion, can launch your script in the VM or web app in Dartium. It can also compile your web app to JavaScript and run it in another browser.

URI Format

Mark Masse O'Reilly Media ePub

The rules presented in this section pertain to the format of a URI. RFC 3986[19] defines the generic URI syntax as shown below:

The forward slash (/) character is used in the path portion of the URI to indicate a hierarchical relationship between resources. For example:

As the last character within a URIs path, a forward slash (/) adds no semantic value and may cause confusion. REST APIs should not expect a trailing slash and should not include them in the links that they provide to clients.

Many web components and frameworks will treat the following two URIs equally:

However, every character within a URI counts toward a resources unique identity. Two different URIs map to two different resources. If the URIs differ, then so do the resources, and vice versa. Therefore, a REST API must generate and communicate clean URIs and should be intolerant of any clients attempts to identify a resource imprecisely. More forgiving APIs may redirect clients to URIs without a trailing forward slash (as described in Rule: 301 (Moved Permanently) should be used to relocate resources).
