The City in the Sea

Slice PDF November 12, 2014

No more! alas, that magical sad sound

Transforming all! Thy charm shall please no moreThy memory no more! Accursed ground!

Henceforth I hold thy flower-enamelled shore, o hyacinthine isle! 0 purple Zante!

'Isola d'oro! Fior di Levante!'

The City in the Sea

Lo! Death has reared himself a throne

In a strange city lying alone

Far down within the dim West,

Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best,

Have gone to their eternal rest.

Their shrines and palaces and towers

(Time-eaten towers that tremble not!)

Resemble nothing that is ours.

Around, by lifting winds forgot,

Resignedly beneath the sky

The melancholy waters lie.

No rays from the holy heaven come down

On the long night-time of that town;

But light from out the lurid sea

Streams up the turrets silentlyGleams up the pinnacles far and freeUp domes - up spires - up kingly hallsUp fanes - up Babylon-like walls Up shadowy long-forgotten bowers

Of sculptured ivy and stone flowers Up many and many a marvellous shrine

Whose wreathed friezes intertwine

3. Let Hindsight Light the Way

Slice ePub May 14, 2014

My interview for this job was so great. The manager was really interested in learning about my background and how I’d applied myself in the past. He asked great, probing questions that really challenged me to think. I sure wish he would “interview” me like that again now that I’ve got the job.

—an employee (perhaps yours)


Imagine if the job interview was the beginning of an ongoing conversational thread throughout someone’s career. Imagine uncovering layer upon layer of your employees’ skills, abilities, interests, and more—right up to the day they retire. Imagine what you could do with that information. Imagine what employees could do with it.

You can enable career-advancing self-awareness by helping employees take stock of where they’ve been, what they’ve done, and who they are. Looking backward thoughtfully is what hindsight conversations are all about. They surface what people need to know and understand about themselves to approach future career steps in a productive and satisfying way.

30. A Minimal MXML Application

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

In Chapter20, we learned that the Flex framework includes a sophisticated collection of customizable components for creating user interfaces. The Flex framework's user interface components are typically used with MXML-based applications, but can also be used in applications written primarily in ActionScript. For the benefit of readers who do not wish to use MXML, this chapter describes the bare minimum steps required to use the Flex framework's UI components in a Flex Builder 2 project, with as little MXML as possible.

For the record, this chapter has nothing against MXML. In general, MXML is an excellent tool for creating standardized interfaces deployed to the Flash platform. This chapter simply caters to situations where either an application's layout is entirely programmatically generated or where the developer does not have the time or interest to learn MXML.

For complete information on MXML and the Flex framework, see Adobe's documentation and O'Reilly's Programming Flex 2 (Kazoun and Lott, 2007).

12. Communicative defences

Slice ePub May 22, 2014

The standard against which communicative defences can be identified involves two possible open, non-defensive communicative sequences. They are:

1. Conscious registration, followed by direct or language-based awareness and responsiveness.

2. Unconscious registration, followed by encoded language-based representation, the identification of the evocative triggering event, and then trigger-decoding so that the unconscious experience is brought into conscious awareness.

In principle, then, communicative defensiveness following conscious registration is defined as a failure to sustain awareness of a previously registered, consciously experienced event and its meanings. Psychologically, this would be termed conscious-system repression because the defence operates in the realm of conscious experience; communicatively, it would be identified as conscious-system noncommunication.

With respect to unconscious registration, communicative de-fensiveness has two major forms. The first involves the natural use of encoding or disguise, with the resultant creation of derivative representations. Depending on its consequences, this process may be adaptive or maladaptive. The second form is, however, always maladaptive to some degree; it entails the obstruction of the trigger-decoding process.
