Chronicle of Higher Education

...Chronicle of Higher Education Pondering Higher-Education Accountability July 2, 2009, 5:59 pm By Kevin Carey Let’s say you’re a governor or a legislator or a member of Congress or you run a large charitable foundation or you’re just generally interested in American higher education, and you have some kind of agenda or goal you want to pursue. Maybe you’re concerned about access for low-income students. Maybe you want graduation rates to be higher. Maybe you wish more people were getting degrees in math and science. Or something else entirely. Whatever it is, you wish things were different, that colleges and universities would collectively be more focused and diligent and effective at pursuing whatever goal you care about most. What should you do? You could write a manifesto or letter to the editor generally exhorting the higher education sector to improve. “This is important!” you would say. “Our future depends on it!” But I think you’d be disappointed. Things are the way they are for a reason. Simple appeals to the better angels of our nature flatter the appealer, but they tend not to change the world all by themselves. Alternatively, you could be heavy-handed and pursue an aggressive regulatory strategy. If colleges aren’t doing something you want them to do, or are doing something you don’t want them to do, work the political process and pass a law to make them change, whether they like it or not. This path will also disappoint, I think. First because it’s hard to......

Comparing Sigmund Freud and Alfred Alder

...therapy aim to provide successful interventions in a shorter period of time. Alder o Adler believed the past continues to influence the choices people make throughout their lives. o Adler believed people are motivated by social relationships. Both men, however, believed fundamental personality characteristics are born within the first six years of life (Fisher, 2001) o Adler believed people can and do make conscious decisions. o He believed the conscious aspect of the human mind was a powerful component in creating goals, and making choices. o Adler's techniques intended a shorter length of therapy with a focus on a strong beneficial relationship with the therapist, definitive goals toward solving the client's contemporary issues, and an optimistic view of the client's ability to change (Corey, 2009) Historical Development Freud o Freud followed his own path from a deterministic view with the belief his choices were dictated by his heritage. Of interest is the fact that one of the most creative times in his life was during an acute phase of psychiatric illness during which he suffered tremendous fear, phobias, and other "severe emotional problems" (Corey, 2009, p. 60). Many, or perhaps most of his theories were based on self analysis - one reason many of his peers believed his theories were faulty, or at least, not an adequate general analysis of humankind. Alder o It is interesting to note Adler's initial life experiences were characterized......

Chronicle of a Death Foretold

...Critically examine the title of Marquez’s novel Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Chronicle of a Death Foretold (1981) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a short novel written in the form of a chronicle. It is an instrument that combines Marquez’s journalism skills with those of fiction writing-the work depicts a murder investigation that took place around thirty years ago and, revolving around this probing, are the major problems that Marquez wants to address- lapses in the social and administrative order. The death, which was “foretold” to almost every member of the town, by the murderers, could not be prevented- it is a clear mirror to the moral disorder which was contained in and rather, dominated the society. As the title exposes, it is about a death- it becomes a natural curiosity as to why the death takes place. In this social order, that the narrator is interviewing, it is very apparent that the culture is marked by “male privilege and domination”; here women were not allowed to exercise their “free will”- “…they have been raised to suffer.” The status of the women was, therefore, reduced to an object. Angela Vicario is reluctant to marry Bayardo San Roman because she didn’t love him. However, she is forced to marry him because he is a man of large fortune and immense power. The death in the story is caused because of an outdated “code of honor” – on the night of wedding if the bride failed to prove her virginity, she was returned back. Consequently, the person responsible......

Diels Alder Paper

...carbohydrates (4). The general method utilized to form oxygen heterocycles was to combine an aldehyde as the heterodienophile and a diene in a hetero-Diels-Alder reaction. Extensive studies on this reaction have been completed. Huang and Rawal chose to study this reaction using hydrogen bond promoted ketones as the heterodienophile rather than aldehydes. This is the first time that unactivated ketones have been successfully utilized in a hetero-Diels-Alder reaction. This research is extremely valuable as it expands the extent by which oxygen heterocycles can be formed. This is extremely important to the biological chemists who study and utilize oxygen heterocycles frequently (1). Huang and Rawal began their study by observing the hetero-Diels Alder reaction rates between various aldehydes and the diene 1-amino-3-siloxybuadiene. They found that the reaction rate was siginificantly higher in polar protic solvents rather than polar aprotic solvents (2). They attributed this change in the reaction rate to the fact that the carbonyl oxygen in the aldehyde could readily hydrogen bond to the hydrogen in the polar protic solvents. This hydrogen bonding causes the carbonyl carbon to develop a partial positive charge, thus enabling the aldehyde to be a stronger heterodienophile. This in turn causes the hetero-Diels-Alder reaction to proceed at a faster rate. After seeing the effect of the solvent on the aldehydes, Huang and Rawal decided to extend their study to......

Chronicle

...This class that I took was an excellent class. I first came in extremely nervous and wasn’t expecting what I will have to do. We were given case studies and were required to go up and speak to the class. At first, I was very nervous, and I would jumble up words. I also lost track of what I was going to say. I was mainly worried about what my audience would think about me when I would be speaking. This is a bad idea when you have to talk, and we learned from Mrs. Ghosalkar that we have to let our fears go and be confident in ourselves. We had great topics that we discussed about. They were about rejection, self-esteem and criticism. During the time we learned about rejection, I understood that I should take rejection of any kind positively and look at it as a way I can improve myself on. After we learned about criticism, I also told myself that criticism only pushes you forward to get better at something you did badly on. But my favorite topic was self-esteem. I learned that I need to have confidence in myself to achieve anything in the future. I cannot put my head down because people disagree with me. I have to ignore those people and say to myself that confidence is what takes you forward in life. As I look upon myself from when I first started the class, and the finishing of the class, I feel that I have gained much more confidence in myself. After every class that we learn something, I put that into daily life. Some examples would be when a teacher wants a volunteer for......

Chronicles of Narnia

...December 9, 2005 MOVIE REVIEW | 'THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE' Two Wars of Good and Evil By A. O. SCOTT In the weeks leading up to the release of "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the entertainment press has sometimes seemed so preoccupied with matters of allegory as to resemble an advanced seminar in Renaissance literature. It has never been a secret that C. S. Lewis, who taught that subject and others at Oxford for many years, composed his great cycle of seven children's fantasy novels with the New Testament in mind and with some of the literary traditions it inspired close at hand. To the millions since the 1950's for whom the books have been a source of childhood enchantment, Lewis's religious intentions have either been obvious, invisible or beside the point. Which is part of the appeal of allegory, as he well knew. It is a symbolic mode, not a literal one - there are, after all, no talking beavers in the Bible - and it constructs distinct levels of meaning among which readers travel of their own free will. An allegorical world is both a reflection of the real one and a reality unto itself, as Lewis's heroes, the four Pevensie children, come to discover. The story of Aslan's sacrifice and resurrection may remind some readers (and now viewers) of what they learned in Sunday school, but others, Christian or not, will be perfectly happy to let what happens in Narnia stay in Narnia. The supposed controversy......

Illusion over Reality in the Martian Chronicles

...Universidad Nacional de Colombia Foreign Languages Department Written English VI Gabriela Vallejo Matiz December, 2013 04861318 The Martian Chronicles: Illusion over Reality The Martian Chronicles can be interpreted as the choice of illusion over reality. There were many events where the Martians shaped their bodies to the humans’ deepest desires or the humans themselves created illusions to fulfill these desires. By doing so, it could be seen that the characters chose to follow their illusions instead of accepting the reality they were facing. “The choice of illusion is related to the strong emotions of love, hate and empathy.” (Taylor, 2013) In chapter six –the third expedition- is clear that the humans’ illusion is to have their beloved dead ones back. Despite the Captain’s reservations and warnings, everyone accepts the illusion of Green Bluff, Illinois in Mars, which suggests unreality given that it may not be possible to copy an identical place in a different one. However, this acceptance brings comfort to the crew who are blinded by the emotion of having their resurrected family back; these families “were given a second chance to live in a new world” which, at the same time, is unreal because there is no way to bring back a dead person. The Martians linked this illusion to the strong empathy with the crew’s emotions through telepathy in order to carry out a dreadful funeral. Earth men never suspected what was happening until the last moment when they were......

Chronicles of Ib

...Chronicles of IB It was my first day of IB English SL class. I always thought English was a subject where there was nothing to study. Throughout my time studying in the Indian Board, I considered English as one of the easiest subjects. But this was about to change. “Ms. Meredith Klein”, my professor’s name was written on the board with the class name “IB English Standard Level” under that with a bunch of other things written around it. As my teacher started describing the syllabus it was becoming my worst nightmare. She divided the two years of the IB program, into 4 parts and called each of the 4 units by a different genre. The funny thing was I just knew two types of genres at that time: fiction and non-fiction. The first one of the four genres she described was Classics. There were two big books I had to read for this, “The Scarlet Letter” and “The Assault” and study both the literary works intensively and at last present a detailed study of one of the book. This was another nightmare for me because throughout my life the only books I had read were a bunch of Famous Five and all in my fifth grade. I felt like it was the worst time of my life. All I did before my 11th grade was read summaries on the Internet and all of a sudden that proved as a waste of time in IB. It was not helpful at all. I knew the reading was extremely important and I still kept on procrastinating and read the books without understanding. The program was called a pre-university course and so it was......

Absurdity of Time in Chronicle of a Death Foretold

...Chronicle #4: Both quotes located on page 49 have a grand scale on meaning as it comes to show and prove to readers the expectations of the Colombian culture in a situation like this. They had, in fact, killed him openly but were innocent because it had been done with good intention and under and good cause. The town expected the Vicario brothers to have killed Santiago Nassar for dishonoring her family and the killing would have restored her family’s status and avenged them from the horrible actions bestowed upon them. The Vicario brothers even confirmed that they “would have done it again a thousand times over for the same reason.” (page 48)They had no desire to truly kill him, as stated in the second quote, as they had told everyone in town of their plan to kill Santiago yet, they had failed to have someone stop them from killing him. It was “an act of great dignity” (page 49)according to the town and Colombian culture. The Vicario twins knew the consequences of the murder yet had to abide by their family and continue with their actions even if they had no true desire of doing so. The town expected these actions and did nothing to stop them. This can be supported by the quote on page 50 “There had never been a death more foretold.” #5: The beginning paragraph of chapter 5 is a very interesting and eye opening one. The first sentence “For years we couldn't talk about anything else.” shows the towns obsession with the murder of Santiago Nassar. Despite the many years......

Magical Realism in Chronicle of a Death Foretold

...Magical realism in Chronicle of a Death Foretold Magical realism is a literary genre in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also realistic. It tries to tell its stories from the perspective of people who live in our world and experience a different reality from the one we call objective. As a tool, magical realism can be used to explore the realities of characters or communities who are outside of the objective mainstream of our culture. It's not just South Americans, Indians, or African slaves who may offer these alternative views. Religious believers for whom the supernatural is always present and miracles are right around the corner, believers to whom angels really do appear and to whom God reveals Himself directly, they too inhabit magical realism in their world. García Márquez developed the style of magical realism, a genre of writing that incorporates magical elements into an otherwise realistic story. Chronicle of a Death Foretold, while not as typical an example of magical realism as García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, does have some elements of the magical realist style. Chronicle of a Death Foretold is based on the true story of a murder that occurred in Sucre, Colombia, in 1951. The real names of García Márquez’s mother, Luisa Santiaga, his siblings, and his future wife Mercedes Barcha are used in the novel. The narrator, like García Márquez himself, is a journalist who interviews his subjects to gather the facts.......

Strategic Planning at the Chronicle Gazette

...UMT MGT195 Term Paper: Strategic Planning at The Chronicle Gazette Introduction: Problems in Publishing All businesses must be concerned with the rapid pace of change we face today. No company is secure, not even the largest and most profitable. Coping with change has been a business concern since people began doing business. Recall how the arrival of automobiles put buggy whip manufacturers out of business. Today’s pace of change is unprecedented. Consider what has happened in the retailing arena. Online retail sales went from nearly nothing in the mid-1990s to a projected $242 billion in 2010. Traditional retailing stores have been heavily affected. eBay has become a retailing behemoth enabling individuals to buy and sell goods online with total annual sales in the billions of dollars. Or consider the fate of many dot-coms. One of the most spectacular dot-com stories – the rise and fall of AOL – illustrates how technology (telephone-based online computing) created a huge success story, and how technology (Internet email) led to a reversal of this success. A major goal of strategic planning is to anticipate environmental changes (economic, business, political, governmental, social) and prepare the organization for dealing with them. Clearly, in this age of rapid change, all business entities should engage in some measure of strategic planning. Without it, they will have difficulty negotiating today’s turbulent business environment. One industry that......

The Use of Chance in Oedipus vs. Chronicle of a Death Foretold

...Jillian Smith anderson IB English Period 2 4 November 2012 The Use of Chance in Chronicle of a Death Foretold versus Oedipus the King Chance can serve many different purposes in works of literature. Whether it is to display a certain idea or to simply add to the author's writing style, chance can have a very significant effect on a reader or an audience. In Oedipus the King by Sophocles and Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, both writers use chance to develop their plots. The chance events are what further the plot and eventually lead to the main characters’ downfall. Chance, however, also has different purposes in the works, as Marquez uses it as an element of his magical realist style of writing, while Sophocles uses it to portray Oedipus’s unavoidable fate. The multiple events involving chance seen throughout Oedipus the King lead towards the idea of one’s inevitable fate and the futility of trying to go against it. While Oedipus was fleeing Corinth and trying to escape the prophecy that said he would kill his father and marry his mother, he “came near to [a] triple crossroad and there [Oedipus] was met by a herald and a man riding on a horse-drawn wagon […] the old man himself tried to push [Oedipus] off the road,” (Sophocles 57) and in return Oedipus “killed the whole lot of them” (Sophocles 57). While trying defy his fate Oedipus was unaware that he was actually fulfilling the prophecy, by killing his father. It was completely by chance......

The four siblings, (Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy) in the movie The Chronicles of Narnia all experience great adversity.

Maria Alejandrina Cervantes in Chronicle of a Death Foretold

...Maria Alejandrina Cervantes—Commentary—Chronicle of a Death Foretold “I dreamed that a woman was coming into the room with a little girl in her arms, and that the child was chewing without stopping to take a breath, and that half-chewed kernels of corn were falling into the woman’s brassiere. The woman said to me: ‘She crunches like a nutty nuthatch, kind of sloppy, kind of slurpy.’ Suddenly I felt the anxious fingers that were undoing the buttons of my shirt, and I caught the dangerous smell of the beast of love lying on my back, and I felt myself sinking into the delights of quicksand of her tenderness.” (89-90). Maria Alejandrina Cervantes, the voluptuous, tasteful, tender prostitute in Chronicle of a Death Foretold has more significance than meets the eye. Firstly, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the author of the book, uses magic realism in context with the character of Maria Alejandrina Cervantes in order to convey the notion of irony. After all, Marquez does indeed eulogistically portray whores as members of the upper classes. Throughout the book, there is a cynical tone and deathly images that lead to accentuate the negative effect of Santiago Nasar’s death on the society. Noting Santiago Nasar’s impact on the town, the book may be considered a symbol of the end of the world. This quote (referring to “I dreamed…out of my life.” [Marquez, 89-90]) amalgamates the motifs of dreams and magic realism regarding Maria Alejandrina Cervantes through the use of literacy devices......
