www.weforum.org 28.01.2010 Switzerland has been criticized lately On the one hand, Switzerland's direct democracy is a showpiece; on the other hand, it unleashes worldwide consternation. International pressures on bank secrecy lead to concessions in the exchange of fiscal information. The accusation of cherry-picking comes up regularly. Does Switzerland have to fear for its reputation and economy? Did Switzerland react accordingly to the international pressure on tax issues? What consequences will this have on Swiss diplomacy and its role as a mediator in international conflicts? This session is co-organized with the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (SEK-FEPS).

The last episode of my favorite cartoon show of all time. Courage the cowardly dog has done a lot when it comes to cartoons. Thought most episodes are fun, I actually find metaphor and meaning in certain episodes. Great examples of this would be "Last of the Starmakers"; "The Uncommon Cold"; "Courage Meets Bigfoot"; "The Tower of Dr Zalost"; "The Gods Must be Goosey" and "The Ride of the Valkeries"

This was a presentation I did in 2008 for the class The Outlaw: Representations in film, media, and cyber culture. It is interesting to listen to now, because by the end of this speech you see the message I am promoting is pretty much what I am still saying today; this idea that we as individuals do have great potentials. Here I am leading into this conclusion by explaining how the Hacker functions and using examples of Quake 3 gameplay and Neo from the Matrix as a metaphor. Post your thoughts.
Ken Auletta visits Google's Mountain View office to present his book "Googled: The End of the World As We Know It". This event took place on November 11, 2009, as part of the Authors@Google series There are companies that create waves and those that ride or are drowned by them. As only he can, bestselling author Ken Auletta takes readers for a ride on the Google wave, telling the story of how it formed and crashed into traditional media businesses—from newspapers to books, to television, to movies, to telephones, to advertising, to Microsoft. With unprecedented access to Googles founders and executives, as well as to those in media who are struggling to keep their heads above water, Auletta reveals how the industry is being disrupted and redefined. Using Google as a stand-in for the digital revolution, Auletta takes readers inside Googles closed-door meetings and paints portraits of Googles notoriously private founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as well as those who work with—and against—them. In his narrative, Auletta provides the fullest account ever told of Googles rise, shares the secret sauce of Googles success, and shows why the worlds of new and old media often communicate as if residents of different planets. Google engineers start from an assumption that the old ways of doing things can be improved and made more efficient, an approach that has yielded remarkable results— Google will generate about $20 billion in advertising revenues this year, or more than the ...

This is an example of a video a student could do for a class assignment. The assignment is to choose one of the literary devices they have been studying (metaphor, hyperbole, analogy, etc) and make a video that demonstrates examples of the device they have chosen. This video is an example of one that could be made for the literary device of irony.

On September 20th, I posted a comment on Alex Jone's infowars.com website on the "Glenn Beck's a Libertarian Now" article, only to have it deleted! My other non-topic related comment wasn't deleted, just the one worried about some fellow to whom has a blatantly distorted perspective of reality. (The message I replied to...) thefreedomwriter Reply: September 20th, 2009 at 5:30 pm This is kind of like Braveheart Alex = Braveheart Glenn = Robert the Bruce Robert the Bruce: Now, I know youve sacrificed much. But fighting these odds looks like rage, not courage.William Wallace: Its well beyond rage. Help me. In the name of Christ, help yourselves. If we join, we can win. If we win, well then well have what none of us has ever had before: a country of our own. GB leads us astray. Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and its tearing me apart.

Introduction to Theory of Literature (ENGL 300) In this second lecture on deconstruction, Professor Paul Fry concludes his consideration of Derrida and begins to explore the work of Paul de Man. Derrida's affinity for and departure from Levi-Strauss's distinction between nature and culture are outlined. De Man's relationship with Derrida, their similarities and differences--particularly de Man's insistence on "self-deconstruction" and his reliance on Jakobson--are discussed. The difference between rhetoric and grammar, particularly the rhetoricization of grammar and the grammaticization of rhetoric, is elucidated through de Man's own examples taken from "All in the Family," Yeats' "Among School Children," and the novels of Proust. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Spring 2009.
Anything can be explained to anyone. Anything from Socratic method to string theory to computer programming...ok maybe not the last one.

Most of my explanation of anarchy was borrowed from this excellent video: www.youtube.com
Thinking again about knowledge and the feeling of certainty which accompanies it, I'm toying with some ideas to do with the conceptual metaphors which may underpin our cognition with regard to this certainty. I've spoken before about that sense of certainty which might be called 'cartesian'; one which is closely associated with the being conscious and with the embodiment which gives form to that consciousness, and I think some of the expressions we use in ordinary language refer to that kind of certainty. The examples I offer in this video are firstly the phrase 'as sure as I'm standing here' which I have heard used when someone wants to indicate the certainty of the belief they are attesting to. This seems to refer to a notion of certainty which is precisely located in space, that location being coterminous with the location of body, standing at the centre of its own experience. The second example is the phrase 'cross my heart' (and hope to die) which we might say when we are making a promise and assuring someone that they can be certain of the truth of our words. The cross we indicate feels to me like the cross one might find on a pirate's map, with the location of the treasure marked by the cartesian coordinates of the cross which uniquely identify the point in conceptual space where certainty can be found. That point where the lines intersect crosses the heart, the notional core of our being and axis of our world.
As part of the Google DC Talks series, Google's Washington office hosted a special book talk with Chris Anderson, Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine and best-selling author of "The Long Tail." In his new book "Free: The Future of a Radical Price," Anderson makes the provocative case that in many instances businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them. This event took place on July 7, 2009 at Google's offices in Washington, DC
Talking earlier about performance, I was thinking of the way it was conceptualised through the deployment of a radial categorisation system built around prototypical examples. Here I'm trying to figure out whether there is more mileage in applying the notion of the 'image schema' to the concept of performance. Maybe performance can be thought of as an abstract structure which is derived from numerous real-world concrete experiences and which then becomes available as a conceptual structure for the understanding of events and experiences which would otherwise be difficult or impossible to grasp cognitively. Image schemas, which Mark Johnson and other talk about extensively, include such structures as 'containers' and 'source-path-goal' patterns, provide the organisational logic and possibly also the entailments or inferences which accompany the application of structure.
The song "The Great Western Road", from, David Byrne, from the album, "Lead Us Not Into Temptation", from the movie soundtrack, "Young Adam". As a metaphor; We all travel The Great Western Road, as we follow the Sun, which will set in the West, as our life's journy too will end. We will all become somebody's ghosts. The film "Young Adam" is a 2003 British drama film written and directed by David Mackenzie, based on the novel of the same name by Alexander Trocchi, which was first published in 1957. It is set in Glasgow, Scotland, in the 1950s and stars Ewan mcgregor. The film follows the exploits of Joe (mcgregor), an amoral young drifter who has ended up working on one of Glasgow's river barges. It deals with lust and sin... The reference in the song to a Glasgow street and park is from the movie's setting - "Sauchiehall" Street, is one of Glasgow's most famous thoroughfares. Originally, it was a winding, narrow lane, It was widened in 1846 and is now a mile-long, broad street, running, from Buchanan Street in the east to Kelvingrove park in the west. "Kelvingrove" Park, is a public park located on the River Kelvin in located in the West End of Glasgow. Its location makes it a popular route. Kelvingrove was originally created as the West End Park in 1852. The park was intended to provide for the continued expansion of the city to the west. The poet, Lyle, wrote a song about the park, entitled Kelvin Grove. Much of, Alasdair Gray's, novel, Poor Things, takes place in and ...

forerunner.com The following won the "Best Documentary" at a Christian Broadcasters' Awards in Moscow. I produced the video with LOZA-TV in 2000. Victor Victorov narrates a script that has been translated and adapted from Reel to Real's HOLLYWOOD series written by Eric Holmberg. PART 3 REBELLION (VICTOR) Proverbs tells us that the glory of a young person is their strength. This vitality -- this willingness to take on the world -- to challenge the status quo -- to take risks -- is among the most valuable and glorious characteristics of youth. (VOICE) God loves it and loves to make use of it; Jesus' disciples were young, and it was a teenage David that God sent to confront Goliath. But this strength is only one part of the overall picture. The proverb goes on to say that the splendor of an old man is his gray head; a metaphor for wisdom. Few things in life are more effective in gaining wisdom than fearing God and then simply living -- bearing up under the trials of life. So while it may have been a young David that God used to slay Goliath, it was an older and wiser David that God sent to command the armies of Israel. And herein lies the balance and the wisdom of God -- the strength of youth married to the wisdom of age! And this is why the family is the most basic unit of the Kingdom of God, why the first eight chapters of Proverbs are filled with fervent pleas to learn wisdom from our parents, and why God wrote by His own hand the first commandment that deals with ...
