Representationalism as Certainty

Evidently this has been making the rounds: Rittenhouse When I look at this image, I see a concept made perfectly transparent and rendered powerfully with a high degree of technical and aesthetic skill alike. I see a devastating and pessimistic statement made pleasing to look at. Like a "beautiful" but "sad" piece of music, this makes for a particulary powerful combination. All of this is familiar, though it is not to be taken for granted. It is unusual to find the technical skill and the powe...

Understanding bond yields is key to assessing the risks and potential rewards of fixed-income assets

Bond yields are an important tool in making investment decisions. TheGoodBrigade/Getty A bond yield is the return you get for a bond over a specific time period. There are several types of bond yields. These can be used to evaluate a bond's risk and value. Bond yields are inversely correlated to bond prices. When prices rise, yields fall, and vice versa.

Leadership is 360 degrees and 365 days

As we study math and science we learn a great deal about measurements. When we discuss 360 degrees, we can recognize this as a reference of measurement in angles, a circle’s circumference. If we compare to the temperature in Fahrenheit, it is above 212, the temperature of boiling water. If we include a calendar year, it contains 365 days. Leadership encompasses all of these components. John Maxwell’s book 360 Leadership is a great book. His description of organizations needs leaders who can lead...

Weekly Astrology Forecast June 21 – 27, 2021

Excerpt from Patreon – Neptune stations retrograde on June 25. We move into a period where illusions are stripped away. During the retrograde, we become aware of where we have been deluding ourselves and where we have lost touch with what is meaningful to us. On the station date itself, things may feel wobbly, and little is clear. Sometimes there is also a rush of emotion like a wave breaking around your feet. Something tugs gently at your heart and says, the tide is moving this way now, will yo...

Collins and Bilge—It Takes Skills and Time

Intersectionality (2016) Patricia Hill Collins and Sirma Bilge p. 116-123—on Hip Hop as youth culture One point of affinity here with "the neoliberal status quo" (117) is this: art is worthy of mere mention only in the context of a (very questionable) theory of youth . Do any adults make Hip Hop?! Does their work aspire or achieve in simlar or different manners? Youth "rarely have the skills and time to get elected to public office" (117), but somehow these limitations are not only surmountable...

The Teacher Is Always There

The other day our mower just stopped working. I went out to mow, and it just wouldn’t move. We knew this day was coming. We had been using the same mower for many, many years on a lawn that was too big for it. So we had already had conversations about a new mower. It seemed everyone loved the zero turn mowers — the ones that have two levers to steer instead of a steering wheel. We researched and looked at several places that carried them. Each one said the same thing: once you mow with a zero tu...

From a young woman in India:  I started dating a boy 4 months back .Everything was going well until recently he started feeling that I was smarter than him.This made him feel bad about himself and he pulled away at times due to this. I realized after talking to him that being a former national level sportsman he has been this competitive with many people till date, that he cannot handle losing in any competition.

My Grandma Hates Me and My Mom

So about January, me and my mom had a falling out. Me and her could not get along. So I left and went through foster care for like months until the opening of school time. Like literally 2 weeks after I went to my grandma’s house on my Dads side of the family I swore it would be better they talked to me nicer and everything.

Am I Too Dependent on My Boyfriend?

From a teen in Morocco:  I really love my boyfriend but I think there’s something wrong with me. I don’t have friends I trust no one except my boyfriend, we’ve been together for 2 years now almost three and I love him a lot. We spent the whole previous year together in the same house and all, but he had to go abroad to study. I don’t think that I’m coping with this very well, it has been 2 months since he left and I think I’m going crazy. I constantly need him to text me and to call me at least ...

How to Turn Criticism into an Opportunity to Strengthen Your Child’s Emotional Intelligence

It has often been said that it takes a village to raise a child. Problem is, others may not agree with how you choose to raise your child, and you won’t always be able to control how they consider a child “should be raised.” Inspired by John Gottman ’s studies, “Emotion Coaching” has been found to lead to fewer behavior problems, better academic outcomes, better self-regulation, and greater emotional and physical health. Put differently, t here is no doubt that treating your child’s emoti...

Boundaries Will Not Cure Codependency: Interview with Rosaria Butterfield

I can tell you anything. No one understands me like you do. I don’t know what I would do without you. I’m so glad we struggle with the same sins. It makes me know that I’m not alone. Perhaps some trace of these statements sounds familiar to all of us, but when they characterize the tenor of our relationships, we have a problem. Codependency stems from an epidemic — a crisis that has quietly crept into our churches. Rosaria Butterfield calls it the “crisis of loneli...

Fortnite for older players

Finding a Fortnite squad of 'mature' players who have been around the block, if not The Island, a few times can be tough. Here is a discord for Fortnite players over the age of forty. A small group of friends and I regularly play Fortnite together -- but it can be hard putting together a full squad. We've also discussed trying to set up some scrims and/or tournaments for the older set, but we need a bigger boat! Senior League here we come! Mostly we are Xbox players, but todays news about c...

Managers Need To Know What Happens When A Meeting Is Postponed

Just exactly how should you go about rescheduling a meeting? Image Credit: Anne Let’s face it – we are all busy. I mean really busy. We may start out a week with the best of hopes about what we’d like to be able to accomplish; however, generally by the time that we hit Wednesday things have been turned upside down on us and despite our manager skills we have very little hope of being able to get everything done that we had been hoping to do. This change in plans can have a big impact on a...

Your Tendencies are NOT a Life Sentence

B'SD 18 Elul, 5778 One of the dominant themes of the  EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge  print and E- book  is that you need not be locked into a psychological limitation. People are able to choose their attitudes and perspectives, even to get their grins back (my goal in helping you!) despite painful setbacks and situations. I use the empowerment/ability to choose a new way of thinking and behaving model when I coach people, too. Listen to the intention embedded ...

Readers Comment on Renaming the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal

Last week I made mention of the recent news that the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder has been removed from the award that, until this year, bore her name–an award given to writers or illustrators of children’s books who have made a lengthy contribution to children’s literature. As I mentioned it I invited readers to submit letters to the editor with their comments on this decision. I received many of them and want to share some of them with you. *** Thank you for your article on t...

Winning Streak Reveals Blue Jackets’ Maturity

One of the prevailing themes of this Columbus Blue Jackets’ season has been their youth. Thanks to the likes of Pierre-Luc Dubois, Zach Werenski, Seth Jones, Sonny Milano and Oliver Bjorkstrand, the Blue Jackets are one of the youngest teams in the NHL. That hasn’t stopped them from going on a season-defining winning streak. Going into Thursday night’s game against the Florida Panthers, the Blue Jackets have won nine games in a row to put themselves in position to land in the playoffs. Consideri...

Goji Berries?

We'd like to start six Goji berry plants this year and probably grow them in pots for one year before transplanting them out around the property. I'd like to try various environments to see what they like best before doing more. Since the seed packet had no specific planting/care instructions, I did some internet sleuthing and created my own "grow sheet". As usual, information on various sites is all over the map so my grow sheet is a combination and reflects generally similar pointers I found....

From Spiritual Infancy to Maturity

Surely we need a baptism of clear seeing if we are to escape the fate of Israel (and of every other religious body in history that forsook God). If not the greatest need, then surely one of the greatest is for the appearance of Christian leaders with prophetic vision. We desperately need seers who can see through the mist. Unless they come soon, it will be too late for this generation. And if they do come, we will no doubt crucify a few of them in the name of our worldly orthodoxy. But the cross...
