Chapter Four: William, did you say, “Much Ado about Nothing”?

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

Juan Eduardo Tesone

Anatomy is no longer destiny and sexual identities do not depend on any aesthetic. The notion of gender has de-reified the biological and, after a long period of gender binarism, queer theory questions it and postulates multiplicity beyond the dichotomy of genders. The intersexuality and intergender that plead against binarism and in favour of flexible sexuality not assigned from birth question psychoanalysis and create a need for us to deconstruct and reformulate several of our paradigms. In psychoanalysis it is nearly impossible to speak of a woman or a man, not only because we need to use the plural but most of all because it is impossible to consider it from a-historical or a-cultural perspectives. No naturalistic essentialism of woman or man is able to transcend the symbolic construction of its era.

Therefore, speaking about “women and creativity” is a challenge that is difficult to face in terms of psychoanalysis. I will therefore allow myself a detour, something like a tangential look; we know that a frontal gaze may “meduse” more than one of us, and looking back may turn us into a statue of salt.

     Understand Portugal

     Survival Guide

With medieval castles, frozen-in-time villages, captivating cities and golden-sand beaches, the Portuguese experience can mean many things. History, great food and wine, idyllic scenery and blazing nightlife are just the beginning…

Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, and its northern rival, Porto, are gems among the urban streetscapes of Europe. Both are magical places for the wanderer, with picturesque views over the river, rattling trams and atmospheric lanes that hide boutiques and old-school record shops, stylish lounges, and a vibrant mix of restaurants, fado clubs and open-air cafes.

Outside the cities, you can stay overnight in converted hilltop fortresses fronting age-old vineyards, hike amid granite peaks or explore historic villages of the little-visited hinterland. More than 800km of coast offers further outdoor enticements. You can gaze out over dramatic end-of-the-world cliffs, surf stellar breaks off dune-covered beaches or laze peacefully on sandy islands fronting calm blue seas.

2. Forms and URLs

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

This chapter discusses form processing and the most common types of attacks that you need to be aware of when dealing with data from forms and URLs. You will learn about attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forgeries (CSRF), as well as how to spoof forms and raw HTTP requests manually.

By the end of the chapter, you will not only see examples of these attacks, but also what practices you can employ to help prevent them.

Vulnerabilites such as cross-site scripting exist when you misuse tainted data. While the predominant source of input for most applications is the user, any remote entity can supply malicious data to your application. Thus, many of the practices described in this chapter are directly applicable to handling input from any remote entity, not just the user. See Chapter 1 for more information about input filtering.

When developing a typical PHP application, the bulk of your logic involves data processingtasks such as determining whether a user has logged in successfully, adding items to a shopping cart, and processing a credit card transaction.

Chapter 6: Horses

Slice PDF May 16, 2014

Chapter Six


They carried us into battle. They tilled our land. They transported us. Time and high tech marched on, and they were relegated largely to our entertainment. Now horses are again called on for a vital service—to help strengthen the frail of body, and inspire the frail of mind.

The young riders, however, think of the therapy horse more in terms of a big, soft neck to nuzzle, a velvety nose to rub, and a means of having fun. Well, not only the young riders.

More than 5,000 horses on this continent are entrusted with our fragile citizens, from two-year-olds to the geriatric.

The animals that transport such precious cargo, or stand patiently while novices rub them, or pick up their feet, obviously must have the temperament and training not to spook at an unexpected noise or movement, and to respond quickly to commands.

Therapy horses must be sound. Even a slight limp will cause an uneven gait, which can be detrimental in individual cases.

A selection of sizes and shapes is necessary to meet each client’s unique requirements. For example, a rider with tight muscles and tendons in his thighs and hips needs a mount with a narrow barrel, while someone with good flexibility will get more stretching from straddling a wider back.
