CHAPTER 3 The Modern Game Takes Shape

Source: Lacrosse
Slice PDF May 13, 2014
<p>1867: A Big Year</p><p>The Dominion of Canada was created on July 1, 1867.</p><p>Canada was commonly referred to by that name through the</p><p>1970s. Some claimed lacrosse was declared the new country’s national sport. These reports proved false. But lacrosse still swept</p><p>Canada that year. It branched out to other parts of the world, as well.</p><p>Montreal-born dentist William George Beers is often called the father of modern lacrosse. He formed the Canadian National</p><p>Lacrosse Association in 1867. Canada had just eight lacrosse teams early in that year. By the end of the year, the country had</p><p>80 teams. Beers had played lacrosse since he was six years old.</p><p>He drafted the first official set of rules for the sport. Many rules were similar to those of modern lacrosse. However, the changes added more structure to the Native American games.</p><p>Despite the new rules, Native Americans helped spread lacrosse overseas. In 1867, a Native American team visited</p><p>England, Ireland, France, and Scotland. For the English, lacrosse was love at first sight. Clubs opened in Blackheath, Richmond, and Liverpool that year. And in 1868, the English Lacrosse</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/614810-lacrosse">See more</a>

13. The Psychopathological Position of the Subject: Hysteria and Obsessional Neurosis

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <b>13</b> </p><p>As we saw, subject-formation emerges out of the relation between the subject's own body and the Other. An originally internal, somatic drive arousal gives rise to a demand for an answer from the Other after which the processing of the Real can begin within the Symbolico-Imaginary. At the same time, both the subject and the Other acquire specific contents and an accompanying relation toward each other, and toward desire and jouissance.</p><p>Actualpathology has been characterized as that group of disorders where the subject remains stuck in primary development: the Other doesn't answer, or failed to answer sufficiently. As a result, the initial (un)pleasure and anxiety, together with their somatic anxiety equivalents, persist in an unelaborated form. The resulting disorder centers on somatization and anxiety, accompanied by reactive avoidance behavior. No processing occurs in the representational order, hence the absence of a fundamental fantasy and symptoms. An important differential diagnostic effect of this is that such patients often initially address themselves to the medical clinical setting, and only later come for psychological consultation. For the characteristics and complaints of this group I have coined the term actualpathological <i>phenomena,</i> in order to distinguish them from symptoms, which as Symbolico-Imaginary constructions are secondary processings and can only appear in the psychopathological position.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/225228-on-being-normal-and-other-disorders-a-manual-for-clinical-psychodiagnostics">See more</a>

Reason 1: Information Overload

Slice ePub May 15, 2014
<p>“You mentioned that the first reason we don’t do what we know is that we suffer from information overload,” said the author. “We simply have too much knowledge. How does spaced repetition affect that?”</p><p>“Good question,” Phil said. “Information overload leads to some real problems. It immobilizes us.” </p><p>“That’s painful to hear,” said the author. “I just experienced that very thing recently at a golf school. I’m a golf nut, so I decided to go to a three-day school to improve my game. But I got the opposite result—I got worse.”</p><p>“Really?”</p><p>“Yes. They taught me too much. When I got back home and tried to play, I was awful. I had paralysis by analysis. I was working on so many things at the same time I became immobilized.”</p><p>“I’ve heard about that,” said the entrepreneur. “It must have been discouraging.”</p><p>“Given what you know about information overload, what good is it to read one book after another or attend seminar after seminar?” asked the author.</p><p>“There’s nothing wrong with reading books and attending seminars,” Murray replied. “These are fundamental learning tools, and we need them. The problem comes when we expose ourselves to new knowledge all the time with no pause for integrating our new know-how and putting it into action. If we continue to expose ourselves this way, we become brain cluttered. This is why so many people are drowning in a sea of information.”</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/128658-know-can-do-put-your-know-how-into-action">See more</a>

2. Standard Output

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>No software is worth anything if there is no output of some sort. But I/O (Input/ Output) has long been one of the nastier areas of computing. If youre ancient, you remember the days most of the work involved in running a program was setting up the programs input and output. Some of the problems have gone away; for example, you no longer need to get operators to mount tapes on a tape drive (not on any laptop or desktop system that Ive seen). But many of the problems are still with us.</p><p>One problem is that there are many different types of output. Writing something on the screen is different from writing something in a fileat least, it sure seems different. Writing something in a file seems different from writing it on a tape, or in flash memory, or on some other kind of device. And what if you want the output from one program to go directly into another program? Should software developers be tasked with writing code to handle all sorts of output devices, even ones that havent been invented yet? Thats certainly inconvenient. Should users have to know how to connect the programs they want to run to different kinds of devices? Thats not a very good idea, either.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/363848-bash-cookbook-solutions-and-examples-for-bash-users">See more</a>
