22. In Full Flight 7,769 Miles Away: 20 Hours Later

Gore, Sophia Karnac Books ePub

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

Gautama Buddha

Crisis review: Dr. Cole, Dr. Fresher, Sophia's parents all present.

In the past month, Sophia's physical state has deteriorated. Recall back into hospital had been considered over a few weeks but there had been reservations about putting this into place as previous admissions have been so difficult and have escalated risks. A decision was however eventually made to recall her due to concerns about further deterioration to her physical state.

Whilst arrangements were being put into place, Sophia phoned to say she going on holiday and her flight was just about to take off. Although Sophia said she was going to Tenerife, it eventually transpired that she was on her way to Bali. Sophia has emailed her parents to say she has arrived safely and she is hoping to return in a better physical state. She has revealed to her mother that she has been using weights and is 10kg lower than the weight specified in her Community Treatment Order. She therefore felt she had no other option than to flee the country.

9. Subterranean Systems

Jr John O Whitaker Indiana University Press ePub

Caves in Indiana (Figure 9.1) are confined for the most part to the Escarpment section of the Shawnee Hills Natural Region and the Mitchell Karst Plain section of the Highland Rim Natural Region, with a small area in the Muscatatuck Flats and Canyons section of the Bluegrass Natural Region (see Map 1.7; Map 9.1). Outside of the karst areas, the groundwater that occurs throughout Indiana in glacial and alluvial plains is also significant. The saturated interstices of the associated soils comprise significant subterranean habitats with simple, but interesting, communities of obligate species. Overall, Indiana is inhabited by a diverse and highly endemic assemblage of obligate subterranean invertebrates (Table I-1). Even greater diversity is exhibited by the group of animals that are non-obligate cavernicoles (cave inhabitants). Peck and Lewis (1978) authored the axiom that the cave fauna of a region potentially include the entire surface fauna, since anything can fall into a hole. That notwithstanding, a list of some of the more significant facultative cavernicoles of Indiana is presented in Table I-2.

Cakes and Icings

Patty Vineyard MacDonald University of North Texas Press ePub

Cakes and Icings

Place baking pans in the center of the oven to permit free circulation of air and heat evenly on all sides. When putting two or more pans in the oven at the same time, stagger them on different shelves, so that one is not directly above the other. There should be at least one inch between two pans on the same shelf; otherwise the trapped heat will cause a “hot spot.”

Reader’s Request

WHITE CHOCOLATE CAKE

2 layers

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1/4 pound white chocolate melted in 1/2 cup boiling water

2-1/2 cups cake flour

1 teaspoon soda

1 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

[Preheat oven to 350°.] Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Cool the chocolate melted in the water and add to the egg mixture. [Sift the flour and soda together. Beginning with the flour mixture] add the dry ingredients and buttermilk alternately to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the vanilla. Pour into well-buttered layer cake pans and bake 40 minutes or until done.

5. Cameras

Eigen, Michael Karnac Books ePub

We have always been fascinated with images of ourselves. We now possess little boxes that provide images of ourselves and each other on demand. In view of the camera, we are potential, portable images. We always were, insofar as we viewed each other in our minds. But to be able to produce, nearly instantaneously, images of ourselves that we can hold, pass around, and look at together—such a capability cannot fail to impact upon our sense of self.

When I was a child at school, teachers revelled in stories about “natives” fearing that their souls could be captured by mirror images. A camera, even more than a mirror, was a kind of soul box. Associations of theft, imprisonment, and pictures are seen in terms like “capture”: capturing experience, expression, gesture, reality.

As a child, I could not capture in words the muted thrill that went with the conquistador’s superiority, the “native’s” stupefaction. Not only control of weaponry, but control of soul images— was that not something to marvel at? Not only my own growth lay ahead, but the agonized growth of social consciousness in general. Within a couple of decades, the cultural climate was such that any group could call into question the superiority of any other group, along any conceivable line (e.g. social, racial, sexual, economic). The categories, above/below, more/less, were suspect.

Chapter 1 Guess Yes or No

Patricia M. Cunningham Solution Tree Press ePub

CHAPTER 1

Guess Yes or No

In 1978, Harold Herber, a pioneer in the field of content-area reading, proposed that teachers focus students’ attention on key information in a text by presenting them with statements and having them guess which statements were true. Students then read the text, determined which of their guesses were correct, and turned false statements into true statements. Guess Yes or No is based on Herber’s anticipation-guide strategy, a prereading tool to engage students and build new knowledge.

In Guess Yes or No lessons, students learn to read closely to determine whether statements are true or false, make logical inferences, and cite textual evidence to support their responses. Before students read the text, they read the statements together, and the teacher helps them use context and morphemic clues when appropriate to determine word meanings. Using the gradual release of responsibility model of instruction, Guess Yes or No combines student trios and teacher-led conversations to discuss various aspects of the text’s content.

Creativity and City Tourism

Repositioning: The Case of Valencia, Spain

José María Nácher Escriche* and Paula Simó Tomás

University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain

4.1  Introduction

Creative activities are important regional facilitators. The urban interaction of the professionals of art, communication, universities, science and R&D leads to an increase in productivity, quality of life and competitiveness. These creative clusters attract other creative professionals, generating leisure or professional visits, which in turn may generate the decision to reside in the visited destination. Urban positioning strategies show a growing interest in the creation or attraction of creative activities.

This paper reviews the creativity and tourism literature, proposes a research method to detect creative flows and makes a first approach to the case of Valencia, Spain, a city with a long history of creativity and with a present that can make it a remarkable

European creative destination.

Chapter 3 From System Effectiveness to System Improvement: Reform Paradigms and Relationships

Michael Fullan Solution Tree Press ePub

Sir Michael Barber

In the 1980s, a series of major reports from leading academics such as Michael Rutter and Peter Mortimore gave us for the first time a clear definition of school effectiveness. The picture they painted then has been refined somewhat in the decades since, but it has not been substantially altered. In the mid-1990s, the focus shifted from school effectiveness (what an effective school looks like) to school improvement (how to achieve effectiveness). Currently, research about whole education systems, not just individual schools, is reaching a similar point. We are becoming much clearer about what effective systems look like. The current picture will surely be clarified and refined in decades to come, but the central question now is this: What kind of reforms and what approaches to implementation will be most successful in enabling systems to achieve effectiveness? This debate is only just beginning, and there is much more to learn. The thirst for this knowledge in governments around the world is very great because a significant and perhaps decisive factor in the future economic and social success of countries is the quality of their education systems.

6. Building the Ranch House (Lake House), 1854

Margaret Lewis Furse Texas A&M University Press ePub

Chapter 6

BUILDING THE RANCH HOUSE (LAKE HOUSE), 1854

James B. Hawkins presented an impressive piece of news to the North Carolina family on January 12, 1854. To his mother-in-law he wrote: “I am very busy sawing out lumber for her [Ariella’s] Lake Auston House. She is going to put up a large and splendid building and I hope after it is finished to have you to live with us. I think we will make a pretty place of it.” By March 22, 1854, J.B. reported to Major Archibald Alston that the framing of the house was up.

We will complete the frame of my Lake House this week. It is three stories high with nine rooms and cross passages and galleries all around with a large closet to every room and every room has a fire place. It will be a star house when completed. The sawmill makes lumber very fast. We are up to our shoulders in work with our different works to keep them all going as they ought to go.1

Ariella’s diplomatic husband refers to the house as his wife’s when he writes to her mother, but when he writes Major Arch, it becomes “my Lake House.” J. B. Hawkins selected the location for the house and to a large extent oversaw the construction himself. He had the help of a master carpenter and the skilled craftsmen among the plantation’s slave workforce. He supervised sawing the lumber cut from trees on his own Caney bottom land. The flooring wood in the house was ash. Some of the larger structural supporting timbers still had evidence of the bark. Even today, the marks of an adze are evident on some heavier beams, and nails in use had square heads. The house was certainly made from a detailed plan, but who drew the plan is still a mystery, although there are grounds for speculation.2

CHAPTER 2 The Values Gap

Smith, Hyrum W. Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

It’s not uncommon in this crazy hectic world to get so caught up in the “busy-ness” of life that, before you know it, time has passed; and when you look back you might feel as if a piece of your life has gone missing.

You usually come to this kind of realization when something major happens, such as watching a child leave home, having a heart attack, going through a divorce, having problems with a struggling business, watching the economy go off a cliff, dealing with a rebellious child, or witnessing something that you’ve always believed, trusted, or known fail in some way. Time feels as if it comes to a standstill, and you pause for self-reflection.

When you find yourself in one of these situations you can become painfully aware of a gap between what you value most and what you are actually doing—the Values Gap. Where are you actually spending your time, energy, and resources compared to where you want to be spending them? The Values Gap is the gap between doing “any old thing” and doing the things that matter most.

Nine - Projective Identification

Curtis, Hannah Karnac Books ePub

Projective identification is the term given to the unconscious processes by which transference and, in particular counter transference, come about. Like transference and countertransference it is a concept that has developed over time and over continents, and given slightly different emphases by different psychoanalytic thinkers and writers. It now has a central place in the psychoanalytic understanding of unconscious communication. This chapter is an attempt to explain the concept as Melanie Klein developed it and its subsequent evolution to its current usage in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic thinking today. It is based on my understanding of the term as I was taught it and have come to use it in my own psychotherapy practice.

Melanie Klein (1946) wrote “Notes on some schizoid mechanisms”. In this paper she described the process that came to be known as projective identification, though she did not use the term itself in that paper. She thought, as do psychoanalysts, that the unconscious processes by which emotions are communicated, begin at birth and that we continue to use these fundamental processes throughout our lives. She used the language of bodily functioning to symbolise that which she was trying to convey. This can seem bizarre and disconcerting to someone new to psycho analysis, but she was trying to describe emotional processes in the early infant, and a small baby's experience is entirely in the context of their bodily processes. The sensations to do with feeding, digesting and excreting are central to their gradual awareness of themselves as a being and eventually to the awareness of others as separate beings. In this early paper she was thinking about the infant's experience of having a bad internal feeling, perhaps having a pain or being hungry. She considers that the infant has a sense of something bad inside, something within themselves that is horrible, and they wish to get rid of this bad thing in way that might feel something like getting rid of excrement, a need to discharge and then experience a sense of relief and well-being. She refers to excrement as a symbol of that which is being discharged and to evoke a sense of relief at having rid oneself of what is felt to be bad. She also considers that this is done angrily and aggressively, and with the aim of taking over and controlling the person of the mother.

Chapter 9: The Power of Counselors, Mentors, and Merchants of Hope

Crystal Kuykendall Solution Tree Press ePub

You must become your brother’s keeper, for if you’re not, he’ll drag you down in his ruins.

—W.E.B. DuBois, 1907

Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.

—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1968)

Anyone who enriches the life of another—on a short- or long-term basis—is a Merchant of Hope. It is my fervent belief that all concerned citizens—not just those employed by our schools—have meaningful roles they can play as Merchants of Hope. Certainly, it takes everyone to educate everyone. As more citizens unleash the potential power they hold as Merchants of Hope, fewer children will be left behind, more families will thrive, and our country will preserve its greatness.

When there is personal outreach, mentees and mentors alike experience the benefits. In interviews I’ve conducted with 200 mentors, counselors, “Big Brothers,” “Big Sisters,” tutors, and “Buddies,” 100% of respondents indicated that their outreach endeavors made coping with their own life challenges much easier. All felt that the rewards of counseling and mentoring were priceless.
