2.1 Design Philosophy Maraming pagbabago ang naganap sa larangan ng makaagham at epektibong pagbuo ng mga gusali at naglalakihang istruktura matapos ang Pangalawang Digmaang Pandaigdig. Ang mga pangyayaring ito ay nagbukas pa ng pinto para sa mas marami pang posibilidad para sa mas epektibo at mas ligtas na gusali para sa lahat.
P.9

2.2 Loading Ang bawat istruktura ay nakabatay sa puwersang grabitasyunal, sa hugis at laki neto, kung saan ito itatayo, at ang bawat posibilidad sa bawat batayan ay dapat na isaalang-alang.
P.10

2.2.1 Sequential Loading Dahil may mga bagay na maaring makaapekto sa kabuuan ng isang istruktura na magiging kapansin-pansin lamang pagkatapos ito malikha, mas makakabuting isaisip ang mga bagay tulad ng direksyon ng hangin at tamang pagkakahiwa-hiwalay upang maging maayos ang istruktura.
P.10

2.3 Strength and Stability Ang bawat istruktura ay dapat na may kakayahang mapigilan o kung hindi naman ay maging matibay sa harap ng pinakamahihirap na sitwasyon. Maging ano pa man ang sitwasyon, dapat mapanatili ang kaligtasan ng kung sino man ang nasa loob ng gusali.
P.11

2.4 Stiffness and Drift Limitations Ang kakayahan ng anumang gusali na masangga at malabanan ang anumang puwersa, maging dahil sa kalikasan o tao, ay nakabatay sa mga materyales na gagamitin at sa ano mang gusali na nakatayo malipat sa katatayuan nito.
P.11
2.5 Human Comfort Criteria Hindi lang dapat isaalang-alang ang tibay at kaligtasan ng gusali, ang anumang istruktura ay dapat na may kaaya-ayang paningin, sa loob o labas man nito. Dapat hangarin ng mga nagpaplano ang kaginhawan ng mga taong nasa loob ng istruktura.
P.13

2.6 Creep, Shrinkage, and Temperature Effects Ang mga paglubog sa lupa o mas kilala sa tawag na “shrinkages” ay matuturing na natural sa anumang gusali pero dapat pa rin itong isaalang-alang dahil ang mga biyak na maaring idulot…...

Nazism

...implemented legislation that restricted what the German public could see, hear, read, do and even think! The Nazis were able to maintain control over the masses through propaganda, codified and unwritten values, and destructive actions (Night of Broken Glass) that actually determined the conditions under which individuals had to live. The Nazi Party ensured its own strength and continuance not only through legal measures (such as eliminating other parties) but also by shaping a society that excluded certain groups from having political influence, particularly women and Jews. The party's principles were essentially antidemocratic and racist. Hitler borrowed considerably from the Italian Fascist and Soviet Communist Systems, but the Nazi pseudoscientific racist theories were original German contributions. Nazism was eventually destroyed by forces perhaps not determined by nature but certainly governed by humanity....

The Decline and Fall of Literature

...provenance of much recent literary theory, one might simply say of English studies, plus ça change…, and leave it at that. There is much to be said against indulging in golden-ageism whereby the acerbities and absurdities of the past disappear into the glow of nostalgia. Carl Woodring is particularly good at documenting how the old guard has always moaned that literary studies are going to hell. And Kernan, whose memoir revisits old Yale quarrels that still rankle after forty years, devotes pages to settling old scores, and to ungenerous portraits of rivals living and dead. Yet they are both right to claim that literary studies are riven today more deeply than ever before, and that they have fallen into the grip of a peculiarly repellent jargon—repellent in the literal sense of pushing readers away. The question remains, Why has this happened? Was there some singular force behind the multiple events that Scholes sums up as the “fall of English”? 4. In Literature Lost, the shrillest of recent books on the crisis, John Ellis blames the whole mess on the dynamics of professionalization—on, that is, the pressure to publish something, anything, that is novel or startling or upon which a reputation can be built. The publish-or-perish desperation has only increased as the readership for what is published declines.15 “This is rather like the Irish elk syndrome,” Ellis says, by which “competition for dominance within the species led to the evolution of ever larger antlers, but......

Myths and Realty of Crime

... After all, these concepts embody, ambiguity, and automatically invoke fear. Not surprisingly then, most persons in American society would deem anyone of lower socioeconomic status, of racial and ethnic minority status and/or immigrant status much more likely to be guilty of a crime or likely to commit one (Lee & Martinez 2009). Even though several studies have discussed this relative to witness recall and/or as the justification of harsh immigration laws and practices in Arizona, the prevalence of these erroneous practices and beliefs share commonalities with the persons of Salem, Massachusetts in 1692-1693 (Stalans, 1993). These attitudes and practices also parallel Sir Francis Galton’s pseudoscientific study of brain size and propensity for crime and his later pseudoscientific theory---Social Darwinism (Stalans, 1993). Although the theory has been discredited by numerous scientists and disciplines, Social Darwinism still exerts influence over statutes, crime, and punishment. Whereas criminal acts such as violence or property damage do harm people, white collar crime harms far more people ad yields far greater damage (Holtfreter, et al, 2008). It is most certainly contributes to the conditions within socioeconomically challenged communities, increases marginalization and in characteristics associated with the top five percent of America (Holtfreter, et al, 2008; Stalans, 1993). Accordingly, they are “white,” educated and affluent. Therefore, the punishment for...

Economist’s Jargon: Unite and Divide

...The economics profession’s jargon serves a variety of purposes. For example, their common terminology serves to make for more precise communication. It allows ideas to be communicated clearly and exactly. This exactness and clarity of terminology serves society by allowing economists to discuss economics with each other and with society with clarity so that other economists have a better understanding of what an economist is saying. A common terminology also serves to divide insiders from outsiders. For outsiders, for example economic students, who do not have a clue what these terms mean, economists’ terminology is exclusionary. It makes economists the gatekeepers of economic ideas. Economists’ terminology serves as a barrier to entry, restricting the supply of economists, and increasing the value of the services provided by existing economists. Which of these two reasons is the strongest? To answer that question let us consider two examples given by Amanda Bennett, the author of The Wall Street Journal article, “Economists + Meeting = A Zillion Causes and Effects” [The Wall Street Journal, January 10, 1995]. The two examples are the concepts of externality and utility, Why do economists use these terms? Based on her article, and on my classroom experience, I would judge that, of the two reasons, the self-serving reason is the stronger. Essentially, economists create their terminology primarily to make life difficult for students. Consider the first example: externality.......
