Sandvox 2012 - TopTenREVIEWS

The intuitive usability and a few "wow" features put Sandvox on the top. The software is very easy to use and boasts a host of fantastic features. Although Sandvox features are quite similar to other top web design software for Macs, Sandvox seems to be a step ahead of the game. For example, most design software will have templates, but Sandvox templates offer better variety and style. Where other applications automatically organize your pages and links, Sandvox allows you more customization of where things land on your pages.

Professor tries improving lectures by removing them from class. Personal narrative plays an important role in Mike Garver’s teaching style.

Professor tries improving lectures by removing them from class

Garver, a professor of marketing at Central Michigan University, often uses anecdotes from his own life in his lectures, according to one of his students. “It’s a good way to, in his words, ‘Put a movie in your mind,’ ” says Mike Hoover, a senior at Central Michigan, who is currently taking Garver’s course in market research. So when I ask Garver about his efforts to excise the lecture from the classroom and blow it to smithereens, he naturally begins telling me a story. In this one, it’s 1998, and Garver is fresh out of grad school and into his first teaching job, at Western Carolina University.

He’s giving a lecture on “the principles of marketing” to 100 students. “I gave one of the best lectures I had ever given,” Garver says. After class, Garver remembers his supervisor affirming the young lecturer’s confidence -- before blowing it apart. I tell Garver it’s obvious that he is in marketing. Anthropologists debate role of science. MONTREAL -- As she opened a session here Thursday at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association, Virginia R.

Anthropologists debate role of science

Dominguez of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and president of the group, told those gathered here that “we don’t have to agree. Sometimes consensus is oppressive. " That was one kind of oppression that no one needed to worry about in this session. The topic was the role of science within anthropology. And while most speakers were careful to say how much they respected one another, it didn’t take long for tensions to surface. Others, however spoke about what they see as a strong anti-science movement within anthropology. One woman in the audience spoke of being criticized by some in her department as "not scientific enough" while others have told her that because she works in part on the issue of the evolution of behavior, "I must be a fascist.

" “A hornet’s nest was opened up,” he said. Journal of Thought.

Human Culture:  What is Culture?

The word culture has many different meanings. For some it refers to an appreciation of good literature, music, art, and food. For a biologist, it is likely to be a colony of bacteria or other microorganisms growing in a nutrient medium in a laboratory Petri dish. However, for anthropologists and other behavioral scientists, culture is the full range of learned human behavior patterns. The term was first used in this way by the pioneer English Anthropologist Edward B. Go Page.
