Mac OS X Server’s diskspacemonitor daemon, as its name implies, monitors available storage resources. This in itself is nothing new. System administrators have for years tweaked and hand-rolled countless cron jobs designed to take some action if available disk space became too low. Although it’s nice of Apple to provide such a service, other vendors have done that too. The point isn’t that diskspacemonitor is revolutionary, but that it is a solid and consistent step in the right direction. diskspacemonitor (which lives in /usr/sbin) is a cron-driven shell script. It is typically enabled using the on flag:

4am$ sudo diskspacemonitor on

Password: crontab: no crontab for root

This adds an entry into the root user’s crontab. This entry indicates that diskspacemonitor should run automatically every 10 minutes; this time with the check argument: sudo cat /var/cron/tabs/root

CHAPTER THREE. Racism as a borderline issue: the avoidance and marginalization of race in psychotherapy

Slice ePub May 22, 2014

Frank Lowe

“Nations and peoples are largely the stories they feed themselves. If they tell themselves stories that are lies, they will suffer the future consequences of those lies. If they tell themselves stories that face their own truths, they will free their histories for future flowerings.”

Ben Okri, Birds of Heaven (1996)

This chapter highlights the failure of psychoanalysis to face its own truths about issues of race and white racism in the selection and training of psychotherapists and in the delivery of psychotherapy. It explores possible reasons for this failure and calls for action to make psychotherapy less racially exclusive and more responsive to the needs of a multiracial and multicultural society.

Much has been written about psychotherapy as a predominantly white middle-class activity. In Britain this concern has led to the development of intercultural therapy as a way of addressing psy-chotherapy’s inaccessibility to people from black and ethnic minority communities. The work of Jaffar Kareem, Lennox Thomas and Fahad Dalal has stimulated numerous seminars and conferences on psychotherapy, race and culture. However, despite increased awareness, the evidence suggests that these issues are generally avoided or marginalized by the profession.

8. Email, Web Galleries,and Network Sharing

Slice ePub June 15, 2015

Holding a beautifully rendered glossy color print created from your own digital image is a glorious feeling. But unless you have an uncle in the inkjet cartridge business, you could go broke printing your own photos. Ordering high-quality prints with iPhoto is terrific fun, too, but it’s slow and expensive.

For the discerning digital photographer who craves both instant gratification and economy, the solution is to put your photos online—by emailing them to others, posting them on the Web, or sharing them with other people on your home or office network.

All of this is particularly easy and satisfying in iPhoto ’09, especially if you are a fan of Facebook or Flickr.

Emailing from iPhoto is perfect for quickly sending off a single photo—or even a handful of photos—to friends, family, and co-workers. (If you have a whole batch of photos to share, on the other hand, consider using the Web-publishing features described later in this chapter.)

My Uncle Paul of Pimlico

My Uncle Paul of Pimlico

Has seven cats as white as snow,

Who sit at his enormous feet

And watch him, as a special treat,

Play the piano upside-down,

In his delightful dressing-gown;

The firelight leaps, the parlour glows,

And, while the music ebbs and flows,

They smile (while purring the refrains),

At little thoughts that cross their brains.

Using Social Network Analysis to Promote Schoolwide Instructional Innovation: A Case Study

ABSTRACT: Social network analysis (SNA), a methodological approach that enables the mathematical examination of interprofessional relationships, can be an important tool for understanding and leveraging the social relationships that support and restrain instructional innovation and the quality and pace of school reform initiatives. In this article, we explicate the conceptual underpinnings of SNA and summarize how it has been used in a range of preK–12 educational evaluation contexts. A school-based case study is presented in which school leaders examined formal and advice-seeking networks among teachers, staff, and administrators and used the findings to reduce teacher isolationism, promote efficient communication, and increase system capacity for instructional innovation. Challenges associated with SNA for educational evaluation and school improvement are also discussed.
