Never say Always 1) Words meaning is usually associated with the level we live on in everyday life 2) Catagorical thinking - if someone's done something once they're always going to do it, they're "that type of person" could apply to physical systems. Only comes into effect once a threshold is passed? 3) The cause and effect of some concepts (boredom?) are conflated 4) Some specific terms (purpose, meaning) that apply only to certain systems are sought as generalities because we think in words and can say "what is the general purpose" 5) just because something is possible doesn't mean it's plausable let alone true! 6) Don't apply a whole system absolutely! If a system applies to one part of society, it doesn't need to apply to all! if some parts apply, not all parts must!

Donnie McClurkin: Ringing The Alarm What I do like, is that he is forcing open discussion about ***uality, child ***ual exploitation, and the fact that by and large folks condone closeting their congregation members. [We need to talk about it.] I don't the conflation of ***ual exploitation with legitimate enduring same *** partnership. [They are not the same thing.] But my heart breaks and worries for all of those young people who may have made themselves visible to folks who could do them harm (or more harm). The closet is never a happy place, but sometimes it is the safest place for some of us until we have the ability to support ourselves. People that love you may not always be suitable to support or empower you in this, many times, hateful and homophobic world. if you hate me, i I love you more. because you have no idea what you are doing.... -bLaK (12.10.09) [^^Sound familiar?] "We fall down.

Mass Suicide in India- Genetically Engineered Crops to Blame? Recently, reports of a mass suicide in India have arisen in the media, and genetically modified crops and debt to agri-business are blamed by the anti-GMO supporters as the cause for it all.

The Art of Roman Britain Part 1 This video (no sound for copyright reasons) looks at the art used and produced in Britain during the Roman period of AD 43-410. It will be of particular interest to students and teachers of Archaeology and Classical Civilization courses, especially those tackling the OCR A-Level A2 paper CC7 Roman Britain: life in the outpost of the Empire. Romano-British art is a unique conflation of Classical and Celtic styles. Some see Celtic art as a style more concerned with symbolism than the realism of Classical Art. Others note the resemblance of Celtic styles to children's art, especially the concentration on key features like the eyes, and see it as infantile. You decide. This first part looks at the background and then examines the art of mosaics and artefacts. Part 2 looks at sculpture and the late treasure hoards
Joe Biden, Keith Olbermann slam Mccain's fear tactics McCain asks the crowd Who is the real Barack Obama? its no surprise that someone cries out Terrorist! The rhetorical conflation of Obama with terrorism is complete. It is stoked further by the repeated invocation of Obamas middle name by surrogates introducing McCain and Palin at these rallies. This sleight of hand at once synchronizes with the poisonous Obama-is-a-Muslim e-mail blasts and shifts the brand of terrorism from Ayerss Vietnam-era variety to the radical Islamic threats of today. Obama can hardly be held accountable for Ayerss behavior 40 years ago, but at least McCain and Palin can try to take some responsibility for the behavior of their own supporters in 2008. Whats troubling here is not only the candidates loose inflammatory talk but also their refusal to step in promptly and strongly when someone responds to it with bloodthirsty threats in a crowded arena. Joe Biden had it exactly right when he expressed concern last week that a leading American politician who might be vice president of the United States would not just stop midsentence and turn and condemn that. To stay silent is to pour gas on the fires. It wasnt always thus with McCain. In February he loudly disassociated himself from a speaker who brayed Barack Hussein Obama when introducing him at a rally in Ohio. Now McCain either backpedals with tardy, pro forma expressions of respect for his opponent or lets second-tier campaign underlings release boilerplate disavowals after ugly incidents like the ...

Choir of King's College Miserere Part 2(recording 1963) Look for Part I. Regardez pour la 1e partie. Miserere by Italian composer Gregorio Allegri (also called "Miserere mei, Deus" - English "Have mercy on me, O God") is a setting of Psalm 51 (50) composed during the reign of Pope Urban VIII, probably during the 1630s, for use in the Sistine Chapel during matins on Wednesday and Friday of Holy Week. It was the last of twelve falsobordone Miserere settings composed and chanted at the service since 1514 and the most popular: at some point, it became forbidden to transcribe the music and it was only allowed to be performed at those particular services, adding to the mystery surrounding it. Writing it down or performing it elsewhere was punishable by excommunication. The setting that escaped from the Vatican is actually a conflation of verses set by Gregorio Allegri around 1638 and Tommaso Bai (1650 - 1718, also spelled "Baj") in 1714. The Miserere is written for two choirs, one of five and one of four voices. One of the choirs sings a simple version of the original Miserere chant; the other, spatially separated, sings an ornamented "commentary" on this. Many have cited this work as an example of the stile antico or prima pratica. However, its constant use of the dominant seventh chord and its emphasis on polychoral techniques certainly put it out of the range of prima pratica. A more accurate comparison would be to the works of Giovanni Gabrieli. Mozart was summoned to Rome by the Pope, only instead of excommunicating the boy ...

Types of Metaphor I'm just kicking around some thoughts to do with metaphor, which I'm finding pretty confusing to be honest. I feel I need some kind of taxonomy or structure, or perhaps a set of narratives to do with where metaphors come from. This is a first pass across this kind of thing. The three bases for metaphor that I suggest here are: 1. Conflation - this comes from Lakoff and others, and emerges out of the consistent association of one phenomenon with another such that they become linked conceptually. The metaphor which understands MORE IS UP is supposed to be an example of conflation. 2. Compression - this one is proposed by Gilles Fauconnier and is produced when complex systems of causation and connection become reduced to human scale. The example Fauconnier gives is one in which a politician who reduces the amount of international aid might be accused of 'taking food out of the mouths of starving children'. watch?v=kiHw3N6d1Js 3. Synaesthetic transformation - suggested by Ramachandran, this type falls out of the tendency we have to find similarities across different sensory modalities. Certain sounds might be thought of a 'round' or 'sharp' for example.

What's the Deal with Faith? I identify two forms of "faith": 1) interpersonal trust 2) belief without evidence These two types of faith have nothing to do with each other, but are often equated, as if one could simply trust in God to exist. If God doesn't exist, he never will, no matter how good he is. Trusting people (having "faith" in them) is fine, but how are we supposed to trust something we have no reason to even believe exists? Moreover, why do all gods ensure that their followers never have good reasons to believe in their existence, yet demand that their followers trust in the gods' goodness? When talking about the value of "faith," Christians often say that their faith is like the faith that a child has in his father. Christians may also fault atheists for a lack of faith in God. This is a conflation of two different meanings of the word "faith." For the Christian who already accepts the existence of the God of the Bible, no evidence of his existence is needed, and the only faith needed is the sort of interpersonal faith that one might have in friends and family. The Christian knows that his God exists; the question now is whether or not he will trust in Him, and to what extent. This question might be solved by studying the Bible and praying. For an atheist, however, a very different type of "faith" is required to become a Christian. An atheist must have "faith" in the very existence of God. This is not a matter of trust or opinion. The existence or non-existence of God is a matter of fact ...

tony conrad: forty-five years on the infinite plain (2007) Tony Conrad with MV Carbon & guests (Jürgen De Blonde, Dominica Eyckmans, Julia Eckhardt, Stefaan Quix, Stefaan Smaaghe, Timo van Luijk, Els van Riel)/ "Forty-five Years on the Infinite Plain" (1972-2007) / live at the Bozar-Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels - Argos Open Archive festival / Oct 13, 2007 Ten Years Alive on the Infinite Plain (1972), like some other works of the psychedelic era, commingles starkly formal abstraction with introspective romanticism. Its insistent conflation of quasi-religious spectacle with materialist minimalism follows a path marked out by Rothko, Cage, Andre, and many others. Today these elements have lost their radicalism; even the political conviction of that time, that such work could make contact, through its spiritual insistence, "with the political real behind the culture of commodity and spectacle" (as Diedrichsen puts it), seems problematic and thin. "In revising "Ten" to "Forty-five", I am addressing a broader chronological perspective, relocating to a different social allegory, and accessing the plural tools that encompass a more contemporary "minimalism." The "subject" that is, the vieweris still at the center of the work; but now the polyvalence of subjectivity is recognized in a figural usage of heterophony and antiphony. A solo cello challenges the lead instrument, and the audience area is divided in half. Musical figures invoke divisiveness, over the unitary ground of the drone.

Elements of ***uality: 20th Century Images of Gay Men This video offers snapshots of three ***ual regimes in US history pertaining to male-male intimacy and gay identity. The first two clips show a stereotype of men who have *** with other men as "pansies" and "fairies," but it's not necessarily a demeaning one. The crowd is laughing with them as much as they're laughing at them. The fairies' performance receives giant applause from the hip Greenwich Village crowd. Jay (Tony Jowitt) and Nasa (the irrepressible Clara Bow) enter the night club because they're fascinated by the edgy scene, not because they hate gays (in fact, "gay" is not a commonly used term to describe men who have *** with other men at this point in history). As George Chauncey explains in Gay New York (1994), the public fascination with "gay" men (the so-called "pansy craze") turned to hostility during the 1930s. The second clip represents the solidification of anti-gay hostility after World War II, including the medicalization of same-*** desire, the conflation of pederasty and homo***uality, and other closet-constructing public opinions. The final clip represents the post-Stonewall celebration of gay pride. Chauncey's research suggests that the first and last clips have more in common despite their historical distance. The history of gay liberation in the US is not a linear one, and this history shows that fascination and public acceptance can turn to intolerance and hostility if we're not careful.

K.Flay Book Review - The Unlikely Disciple this week i'm reviewing "The Unlikely Disciple" by Kevin Roose. the book is essentially an undercover look at the inner-workings of student life at Liberty University, an evangelical college founded in 1971 by Jerry Fallwell (the dude we can blame for politically mobilizing the religious right and helping to secure the elections of Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II). it would be easy for Roose to spend most of his time lambasting the institution for its rigid (and extremely antiquated) rules, its overt conflation of sermonizing and educating, and its profound conservatism in all areas of life. i think we can all agree that college students at an accredited university should NOT be forced to take courses in which things like evolution, women's rights, and homo***uality are dismissed, decried, or denied outright. however, Roose's book gets interesting when he extends beyond a basic criticism of the school and begins to look more carefully at the students themselves. one-on-one, the author finds that many students at Liberty are kind, friendly, and generous -- and Roose is quick to point out that not all of his classmates are sycophantic Fallwell followers. we hear about kids who watch R-rated movies, those who question Liberty's teachings, and even some who haven't been "saved" (the definitive evangelical experience). the main point is this: evangelical christians constitute a sizable and influential segment of the population and it would be both ignorant and silly to lump them ...
