The six types of Love: Physical, Sexual, Emotional, Intellectual, Practical and Spiritual | Thanking the Spoon.
[8 mins to read] After my recent Valentine’s Day post (‘The Buddha in the Bedroom’) I received quite a few messages and questions about Love and relationships. One of the most common issues was around couples ‘growing apart’. So I want to address these questions here and write about six different types of Love. For the Nichiren Buddhists reading this, please note that I am writing today wearing my ‘Life Coach Hat’ rather than as a Buddhist quoting from the Gosho or citing guidance about meeting a Kosen Rufu partner. My experience of coaching people to make big decisions about their love life is that the question: “How do you want to love and be loved?” For example, and please forgive the stereotyping, a man may express his love for a woman by being ‘the family breadwinner’, when really his wife would rather he earned less money and spent more time listening to her. So, how do you want to be loved? Physical: How much are we attracted to each other physically?

During a recent visit to California, I attended a party at a professor's house with a Slovene friend, a heavy smoker. Late in the evening, my friend became desperate and politely asked the host if he could step out on the veranda for a smoke. When the host (no less politely) said no, my friend suggested that he step out on to the street, and even this was rejected by the host, who claimed such a public display of smoking might hurt his status with his neighbours … But what really surprised me was that, after dinner, the host offered us (not so) soft drugs, and this kind of smoking went on without any problem – as if drugs are not more dangerous than cigarettes.
This weird incident is a sign of the impasses of today's consumerism. To account for it, one should introduce the distinction between pleasure and enjoyment elaborated by the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan: what Lacan calls jouissance (enjoyment) is a deadly excess beyond pleasure, which is by definition moderate. 2014 Prix Pictet.

The Hubris Syndrome. ‘Madness in great ones must not unwatched go’. So says King Claudius in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. I was reminded of the phrase when reading David Owen’s fascinating book, The Hubris Syndrome. Lord Owen was Britain’s youngest foreign secretary in the late 1970s, then leader of a new political party, the Social Democratic Party, so he has seen most of the world’s top leaders at close quarters. He was also a doctor before he became a politician, so he neatly combines medical and political insights. His thesis, in a nutshell, is that the ‘hubris syndrome’ –over-confidence leading to self-destruction - is a particular kind of mental illness which affects not just politicians but military commanders and heads of large companies.
The idea that power goes to people’s heads is not of course new. The disease grows the longer the leader stays in power. This hubristic progression fits Hitler like a glove. The growth of hubris can be checked both externally and internally. Linguistic biomarkers of Hubris syndrome.

Keywords Hubris syndrome; Language; Shannon entropy; Keyness Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. Hektoen International. Lord David Owen has written extensively about politicians and heads of state who became insufferable from being intoxicated by the power of their office. He called this aberration from gentlemanly behavior the hubris syndrome, an acquired personality disorder that most often went away after they left office. Hubris has come down to us from the ancient Greeks. It means arrogance, excessive pride, an overestimation of one's capabilities. It affected Prometheus, the putative benefactor of mankind who challenged the supremacy of Zeus by stealing the fire from the heavens and was punished by being chained to a mountain in the Caucasus where a vulture feasted on his liver during the day but it regenerated during the night.
Being a neurologist and former British minister of health, Lord Owen has medicalized what some would argue is not medical at all. So how did Lord Owen described his medicalized syndrome?

When Christine Cunningham, an education researcher and vice president at the Museum of Science in Boston, prompts elementary school students to draw an engineer at work, the pictures they hand in never surprise her. In fact, for the thousands of students Cunningham has polled around the country in recent years, childhood perceptions of engineers have been strikingly consistent — and consistently inaccurate.
“Children think engineers drive trains,” she says. Some sketch construction workers assembling buildings, bridges or roads. “The kids think engineers build these structures, not design them,” Cunningham explains. While not altogether unexpected, Cunningham says such childhood misconceptions are troubling. “If you have no idea what engineers do, then it’s not very likely that you’ll think about this as a career path,” she says.
Repairing the Pipeline The deficit is clear. Engineering Is Elementary But schools are failing to nurture these natural design inclinations, Cunningham says. Online zgode šegrta Hlapića.ppt. Teaching Two-Step Thinking - Positive Discipline. One way of looking at teaching your child responsibility is as a process through which you help the boy or girl develop the habit of thinking twice. You want to teach your child to rely on second thought. This means helping your child learn the discipline of two-step thinking. Consider child raising this way. When an infant is born into your care, he or she is a one-step or first-step thinker. What is this first step?
It is the infant's knowing what he or she wants. As parents, you appreciate the importance of wants and urgency of impulse, but you know that a life governed only by wants and impulse will become destructive. Two-step thinking needs to be taught twice — first in childhood to help the child outgrow the tyranny of impulse that rules infancy, and then again with the onset of adolescence, when the urge to satisfy immediate wants returns. What is the second step?
The child takes time to think ahead. 3 Practical Tips for Dealing With Difficult Students - Teacher Life 365. Last week, we covered the topic of how to manage yourself when you’ve got one of those challenging students in your classroom that go beyond the behavioral antics of a typical student. This week, we present 3 practical tips for you to use to assist you in developing a plan to manage the student (and hopefully teach the student new skills).
Let’s dig in. First, make contact with the parent or guardian of this student early and often. Frequent contact and collaboration makes for the best chance of success. When you do talk to the parent, be sure to include some good things about the student as well as the behaviors of concern. Next, build a relationship with the student. Last, get help. One final note regarding difficult students – although you may feel that the year will never end when you are in the midst of managing behaviors every hour of the day, rest assured the year will end, and when it does….you will be a far better educator than when the year began. 5 Classroom Management Tips For Every Teacher. This week we’re going to visit five classroom management tips all teachers can benefit from, new and veteran alike.
But what makes these tips different than the usual fare is that they’re so often overlooked, ignored, or just plain forgotten. Sneak a peak into a hundred classrooms and you’ll find few if any teachers actually following them. Those who do, however, those who make these essential tips part of who they are and how they run their classroom, have an uncanny ability to create the kind of happy but peaceful learning experience students love being part of. They have what students, parents, and fellow teachers struggle to put their finger on when describing those rare individuals with a natural gift for their profession. But the truth is, the ability to create a dream class is available to everyone. The tips below form the backbone of an approach to classroom management that will pave the way to extraordinary teaching—if only you’ll make the commitment to following them. 1. 2. 3. 4.
8 Things Teachers Do To Cause Boredom. When students get bored their minds drift. And while some settle on daydreaming, tile-counting, and general inattentiveness, other students are drawn to more…ahem…destructive pursuits. For where there is boredom, there is misbehavior percolating just under the surface, ready to pounce. Although there is a lot you can do to counter the onset of boredom, understanding what not to do is the first step to avoiding its negative effects. What follows is a list of the most common things teachers do to cause boredom. And you’ll be a more effective teacher. 1. Although it’s important to increase your students’ stamina for both paying attention during lessons and focusing during independent work, if they’re made to sit too long, you’re asking for trouble. 2.
Students need room to breathe or they’ll form an unspoken mutiny and turn your classroom upside down. 3. Many teachers misunderstand the oft-heard mandate for more rigor. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
