The Chicago Manual of Style Online: Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide - Iceweasel. The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and the nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars.

The notes and bibliography style is preferred by many in the humanities, including those in literature, history, and the arts. This style presents bibliographic information in notes and, often, a bibliography. It accommodates a variety of sources, including esoteric ones less appropriate to the author-date system. The author-date system has long been used by those in the physical, natural, and social sciences. In this system, sources are briefly cited in the text, usually in parentheses, by author’s last name and date of publication. Aside from the use of notes versus parenthetical references in the text, the two systems share a similar style. Notes and Bibliography: Sample Citations Book One author 1. 2. Pollan, Michael. 1. 2. Ex-Diplomats Report New Benghazi Whistleblowers with Info Devastating to Clinton and Obama - Iceweasel.

Barber: Satan Behind Obama Administration's Gay Rights Efforts, Bringing America Back to Days of Noah | Right Wing Watch - Iceweasel. Yesterday, Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber appeared on VCY America’s Crosstalk with Vic Eliason to continue to push his claim that the gay rights movement is Satanic and meant to destroy society just like in the days before Noah’s flood.

He told Eliason that “this celebration of aberrant and deviant sexual behavior, homosexuality and cross-dressing particularly” goes back “before even Sodom and Gomorrah to the days of Noah,” lamenting that “America has finally flipped.” Later, he continued his diatribe and alleged that Satan is behind the Obama administration's support for LGBT rights in order to spread “deception.” Eliason: I cannot believe Matt, I’ve lived a long time, I’m seventy-seven, and I cannot believe that I’m living in a country where this stuff is going on, it’s nauseating.Barber: It’s pretty scriptural though, isn’t it?

Scripture says woe to those who call evil good and good evil. Scripture also says there is nothing new under the sun. GOP Senator James Inhofe: Tornado Aid is ‘Totally Different’ From Hurricane Sandy - Iceweasel. GOP Senator James Inhofe from Oklahoma recently argued that there is no comparison between Hurricane Sandy relief, which he voted against last fall, and disaster aid for his state after the devastating tornado, because the two are “totally different.” In a report from the Washington Post on Tuesday, Inhofe claimed that the Hurricane Sandy relief bill was filled with pork projects. They were fixing roads [in the Virgin Islands] and putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C.,” and that people were “exploiting the tragedy that took place,” He added: “That won’t happen in Oklahoma.”

Inhofe has voted against additional funding for FEMA in the past, though in 2008 he praised relief from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to Oklahoma counties that were affected by “severe weather.” Inhofe’s GOP senate colleague, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, said he would push for federal aid to Oklahoma to be offset by cuts elsewhere.

There never will be enough time. Time management is a doomed battle, especially for creatives who are constantly juggling a variety of projects. In an article on Quartz, writer and psychologist Tony Crabbe describes how our modern obsession with time management grew out of the Industrial Revolution, when factories needed to coordinate hundreds of people’s shifts in synchronicity.

That tidal shift from the concept of task management to time management is responsible for what has today become a monumental issue: We are all way too busy, scrambling to get way too much done, in an ultimately futile effort to clear our inboxes and complete our to-do lists often to the detriment of deeper, more meaningful output: [W]hen we complete more tasks, all that happens is more appear to take their place—send more emails, get more replies. We can’t change the basic unwritten code of how the modern working world operates. [via] Revenge, ego and the corruption of Wikipedia - - Iceweasel. In the wee hours of the morning of January 27, 2013, a Wikipedia editor named “Qworty” made a series of 14 separate edits to the Wikipedia page for the late writer Barry Hannah, a well-regarded Southern author with a taste for the Gothic and absurd. Qworty cut paragraphs that included quotes from Hannah’s work. He removed 20 links to interviews, obituaries and reminiscences concerning Hannah.

He cut out a list of literary prizes Hannah had won. Two edits stand out. Taken all together, the edits strongly suggest a focused attempt to diminish Hannah’s legacy. The answer to this question is on the one hand simple, almost trivial: Qworty turned out to be another author who had a long history of resenting Hannah. Qworty’s edits undermine our faith in this great project.

Qworty first came to my attention in late April, when I discovered that he was responsible for a series of “revenge edits” to Wikipedia pages associated with the writer Amanda Filipacchi. The emphasis is mine. The Trucost report – the final nail in the coffin for sustainable capitalism? | Sustainable Business Toolkit - Iceweasel.

Last month, the environmental consultancy firm Trucost published a report entitled “ Natural Capital at Risk: The Top 100 Externalities of Business. ” The report calls into question the validity of sustainable capitalism as a new paradigm. Detailing the total “unpriced natural capital” consumed by the world’s largest industrial sectors, the report found that, in 2009, the top 1,000 “global primary production and primary processing region-sectors” (a certain industry located in a certain region) failed to pay for USD7.3 trillion of natural resources and services they used. Standing at 13% of global economic output for that year, the majority of these costs were greenhouse gas emissions (38%), water use (25%), land use (24%), air pollution (7%), land and water pollution (5%) and waste (1%).

The environment, unlike other marketable resources (such as labour), is not “ divisible… almost never reach[es] equilibrium… changes are frequently irreversible ” and is demonstrably finite. Reading Activities Strategies Aligned with Common Core Standards - Wise Guys - - Iceweasel. Italian stuffed cabbage. Prior to November, what I knew of stuffed cabbage rolls were limited to the Jewish/Eastern European variety, which I make the way my mother-in-law does. I hadn’t given it further thought because as far as I was concerned, it was never broken, and needed little improvement, and when there’s little room for me to tinker in the kitchen, I quickly lose interest.

But if I had, it might have occurred to me that cabbage, being one of the ultimate peasant foods, has probably been wrapped around meat that’s been ground and then stretched (always budget-minded, those peasants) with other ingredients and cooked in a sauce in a zillion different ways over the centuries. And oh, the fun we might have been having this whole time. You could say I ran to the kitchen. Not this one; this one exceeded every expectation. Italian Stuffed Cabbage [Mondeghini al sugo] Adapted from Rachel Eats, who adapted it from from Giorgio Locatelli’s recipe in Made in Italy and Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book.

Writing an Annotated Bibliography :: Academic Skills Resources, The Learning Centre UNSW - Iceweasel. What is an annotated bibliography? An annotated bibliography provides a brief account of the available research on a given topic. It is a list of research sources that includes concise descriptions and evaluations of each source. The annotation usually contains a brief summary of content and a short analysis or evaluation. Depending on your assignment you may be asked to reflect, summarise, critique, evaluate or analyse the source. An annotated bibliography may be a component of a larger project or it may be a stand-alone assignment. While an annotation can be as brief as one sentence, the standard annotated bibliography consists of a citation followed by a short paragraph.

Please note: the advice in this guide is general. Purpose of an annotated bibliography Depending on your specific assignment, an annotated bibliography might: When set as an assignment, an annotated bibliography allows you to get acquainted with the material available on a particular topic.

Writing Tips – Commas and Editing Checklist « DL Morrese - Iceweasel. There are two things I’ve found useful that I’d like to share today. The first is on comma usage.

I have noticed there is a lot of inconsistency not only in how commas are used by different writers but also in guidance on how to use commas. The link below is for a tip-sheet from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry Writing Program. I like this one because it is clear, succinct, and (I think) correct. The second thing I have to share is a self-editing checklist I made using guidance from multiple sources and my own experience.

One other thing I should mention — If you do use something like this, expect it to take several days (weeks or months) to methodically go through your book-length manuscript.

National Ad Campaign to Promote on Buses and Online For Release Nov. 13, 2012 at 7:00 am Eastern Time Contact: Brian Magee, 202-238-9088, mobile: 202-681-2425, (Washington, DC, November 13, 2012) — In an effort to strengthen and support kids and teenagers who don’t happen to believe in a god, the American Humanist Association is promoting its newly created website: This engaging resource offers a welcoming home for humanist, atheist and other non-traditionally religious kids where they can find information untainted by supernaturalism on a wide range of topics, including religion in public schools, science, discrimination, sexuality, and reading suggestions. The various ad images being used can be found online here.

To make sure this new resource becomes familiar to kids across the country, the American Humanist Association is spending over $30,000 on an ad campaign promoting Occasional hell - infernal device - Iron Gag - Iceweasel. The Iron Gag, or Mute's Bridle was used to stifle the screams of a victim. The oblong box was forced into the mouth and the metal collar was tightly fastened around the back of the neck. A small hole in the front allowed air to pass in and out but muffled any screams. A torturer could press a single fingertip to the air-hole and create an extremely distressing situation for the accused. This was used often during the Inquisition's auto da fe, so the accused would not interrupt the ceremony with their irritating cries of distress.

The various iron gags are akin to the branks and scold's bridles and were often used interchangeably. The Holy Land Reborn: Pilgrimage and the Tibetan Reinvention of Buddhist India - Iceweasel. Lectures on Bhagavata | The Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies - Iceweasel. This narrowly focused essay proposes to compare the Islamic god Allah as depicted in the Qur’an with the Hindu deity Krishna in the Bhagavata Purana. This paper concentrates on how these two respective texts define the two deities. More precisely, this essay focuses on such issues as transcendence and immanence, creative power and play, obedience and love, and the relationship between God and humans.

These various themes are examined from the perspective of comparative theology, which can be defined as an articulation of truths and a realization of a more complete knowledge of God in so far as it is possible by means of theology conceived broadly as inter-religious, comparative, dialogical, and confessional. This paper proposes to use a hermeneutical dialogue, which is an interpretative approach that is intended to lead to better cross-cultural understanding. Such a dialogue is risky because it entails entering the margins between oneself and the other.
