Quandary is an application for creating Web-based Action Mazes.

At the start of the 19th century, Sir Walter Scott, the best-selling author of the historical potboiler (114,000 books sold in France alone during his lifetime 1 ) may have changed the role of women characters forever in this country when he created Jeanie Deans. This heroine of his vastly successful The Heart of Midlothian (1818) played none of the stereotypic roles assigned women: Magdalene/Eve, madonna, wife of Bath, drudge, vampire. She was an Innocent who did murder. Scott did not seize the opportunity to employ the usual slant on Eve, Motherhood, or the Sixth Commandment. Instead, he documented what happened to a woman who committed infanticide because she was ground down by the powers of economics, society, and institutionalized religion. When an author made a murderer his principal character and evoked sympathy for her, even spurred humane laws for women caught in such binds -- and still earned significant royalties -- editors and writers paid attention.

Writing for College How It Differs From Writing in High School One of the first things you'll discover as a college student is that writing in college is different from writing in high school.

In a recent BBH Labs post ( Wind Tunnel Marketing, The Sequel: On the Need for Divergent Insight ) that talked about the need for divergent thinking and stimulus in approaching problem solving (& creative ideation), Chaz Wigley, the Chairman of BBH in Asia Pacific, mentioned how the CIA ‘s (I’ve always wanted to link to the CIA) Problem Definition Checklist provoked precisely this kind of approach; rounded, many-faceted, flexible. These questions are known as “context-free questions” and are designed “to encourage agents to look at a challenge from many different angles. Using Phoenix is like holding your challenge in your hand. You can turn it, look at it from underneath, see it from one view, hold it up to another position, imagine solutions, and really be in control of it” (see the excellent, if chewy, paper on Exploring Exploratory Testing , for more here).
A-level results: Top universities secretly list 'banned' subjects teachers | Education | The GuardianOxford is one of the elite universities accused of operating a subjects blacklist. Photograph: Oli Scarff/Getty Images The country's top universities have been called on to come clean about an unofficial list or lists of "banned" A-level subjects that may have prevented tens of thousands of state school pupils getting on to degree courses. Teachers suspect the Russell Group of universities – which includes Oxford and Cambridge – of rejecting outright pupils who take A-level subjects that appear on the unpublished lists. The lists are said to contain subjects such as law, art and design, business studies, drama and theatre studies – non-traditional A-level subjects predominantly offered by comprehensives, rather than private schools.

email@example.com English 487 Burroughs Machine Wicki! William Seward Burroughs wrote some of the most brutal and hilarious texts of the 20th century, novels, stories, essays and paintings that sought to shatter the monotonous "control" of the present. In his writing practices, Burroughs had recourse to numerous machines - tape recorders, hypodermics, revolvers, and selves. Writer and composer Paul Bowles wrote of the Burroughs machine, not to be confused with the adding machine of the same name: At any point of the day or night you might happen to catch him, you will always find that the whole machine is going full blast, and that means that he is laughing or about to laugh .
