We would like to begin with quotes from the writings of two great historians of our time.
Edward Hallett Carr said:
Even Sir George Clark, critical as he was, contrasted the hard core of facts in history with the surrounding pulp of disputable interpretations—forgetting perhaps that the pulpy part of the fruit is more rewarding than the hard core. [Carr, 1961, pp. 9–10]
And Fernand Braudel wrote:
For me History (with capital H) is the sum of all possible histories. [Braudel, 1969, p. 55]
Both quotations illustrate how difficult it is to agree about a construction or re-construction of the past and about the function of isolated facts or groups of facts that might have taken place in the remote past of humankind. We will see, through a dream of a patient that we will bring to you, how he sees this issue from an unconsciously subjective point of view, with the eyes of his emotional mind.
We want to underscore some aspects of temporality and its relation with the way our present-day emotional experiences acquire meaning to highlight the importance of the work of Ruth Riesenberg-Malcolm, which is a successful attempt to deepen Freud's approach to constructions in analysis. We also try to complement her views with some personal reflections based on our clinical experience and studies of other authors. There are several points we wish to emphasize:
Brighten any room with this graphic wall quilt with a contemporary twist. Super simple cutting and piecing make this quilt go together quickly and easily. This is a great project for beginning quilters.
¼ yard black for pieced blocks
2½ yards total assorted brights for pieced blocks
3½ yards for backing and binding
54″ × 54″ batting
Cut 25 squares 2½″ × 2½″ from the black for the pieced blocks.
Cut from the assorted brights for the pieced blocks:
25 squares 2½″ × 2½″
25 rectangles 2½″ × 6½″
25 rectangles 2½″ × 10½″
25 rectangles 6½″ × 10½″
1. Piece the block as shown. Press. Make 19 blocks.
2. Piece the block as shown. Press. Make 6 blocks.
1. Arrange and sew together the blocks in 5 rows of 5 blocks each. Press.
2. Sew together the rows to form the quilt top.
1. Layer the quilt top with batting and backing. Baste or pin.
Network administration tasks fall into two very different
categories: configuration and troubleshooting . Configuration tasks prepare the system for the expected
network environment; they require detailed knowledge of system
configuration but are usually simple and predictable. Once a system is
properly configured, there is rarely any reason to change it. The
configuration process is repeated each time a new release of Windows is
installed, but usually with very few changes.
In contrast, network troubleshooting deals with the unexpected.
Troubleshooting frequently requires knowledge that is conceptual rather
than detailed. Network problems are apt to be unique and sometimes
difficult to resolve. Troubleshooting is an important part of maintaining
a stable, reliable network service.
This chapter discusses the tools you can use to ensure that the
network is in good running condition. However, good tools are not enough.
No troubleshooting tool is effective if applied haphazardly. Effective
troubleshooting requires a methodical approach to the problem and a basic
understanding of how the network works. So well start our discussion by
looking at ways to approach a network problem.
Everything that we are making, we are making more and more
The complexity of the new networked, interdependent economy
creates an ambiguous, uncertain, competitive landscape. Companies must
be flexible enough to rapidly respond to changes in their environments,
or risk extinction.
Power of Pull: How Small Moves, Smartly Made, Can Set Big Things in
Motion (Basic Books), John Hagel and John Seely Brown observe that return on assetsthe measure of how efficiently a
company can use its assets to generate profitshas steadily dwindled
to almost a quarter of what it was in 1965.
The S&P 500 has fewer and fewer long-term survivors. New
entrants arent faring much better. The average life expectancy of a
company in the S&P 500 has dropped from 75 years (in 1937) to 15
years in a more recent study.
Turnover in the Fortune 1,000 is also increasing. If your company is in
the Fortune 1,000, the chance that you will still be there in ten
years is diminishing rapidly.
