The Moral Bucket List

The Moral Bucket List
Photo ABOUT once a month I run across a person who radiates an inner light. These people can be in any walk of life. They seem deeply good. They listen well. When I meet such a person it brightens my whole day. A few years ago I realized that I wanted to be a bit more like those people. It occurred to me that there were two sets of virtues, the résumé virtues and the eulogy virtues. We all know that the eulogy virtues are more important than the résumé ones. But if you live for external achievement, years pass and the deepest parts of you go unexplored and unstructured. So a few years ago I set out to discover how those deeply good people got that way. I came to the conclusion that wonderful people are made, not born — that the people I admired had achieved an unfakeable inner virtue, built slowly from specific moral and spiritual accomplishments. THE HUMILITY SHIFT We live in the culture of the Big Me. SELF-DEFEAT External success is achieved through competition with others. Related:  READMis marcadores de google 2

Adult Siblings May Hold The Secret To A Happy Life Katherine Streeter for NPR Somehow we're squeezing 16 people into our apartment for Thanksgiving this year, with relatives ranging in age from my 30-year-old nephew to my 90-year-old mother. I love them all, but in a way the one I know best is the middle-aged man across the table whose blue eyes look just like mine: my younger brother Paul. Paul and I kind of irritated each other when we were kids; I would take bites out of his precisely made sandwiches in just the spot I knew he didn't want me to, and he would hang around the living room telling jokes when he knew I wanted to be alone with the boy on the couch. But as adults, we've always had each other's backs, especially when it comes to dealing with our mother's health crises, which have become more frequent in the past few years. Paul is the first person I want to talk to when there's something that worries me about Mom; I know he'll be worried, too. There's probably a biological explanation for the intensity of the sibling bond.

¿Huevos invertidos? Descubre cómo hacerlos en 7 simples pasos ¡Cuando sirvas estos huevos duros, tus comensales quedarán aturdidos! ¿Magia?, ¿una mutación genética? ¿o se trata de gallinas de Marte? Sólo necesitas: Huevos, una linterna, cinta adhesiva y pantimedias (panty de vestir). 1. Notas cuán brillante y translúcido se ve. 2. Aunque te parezca muy extraño estar haciendo este experimento… así es la ciencia. 3. Cierra uno de los lados con algo fácil de remover después, como un alambre para cerrar bolsas de pan. 4. Esto lo debes hacer con mucho cuidado, para no golpear el huevo contra alguna superficie, o podría quebrarse. 5. Retira la pantimedia y vuelve a revisar el contenido del huevo a través de la luz que produce la linterna. Ahora sólo tienes que introducir tu huevo en una olla con agua, dejar hervir por 10 minutos, al igual que harías con un huevo duro común y quebrar la cáscara para ver con lo que te encuentras en el interior.

Donald Trump, Stephen Bannon and the Coming Crisis in American National Life During the 1990s, two amateur historians, Neil Howe and the late William Strauss, developed a new theory of American history in two books, Generations: the History of America’s Future (1991), and The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy (1997). They identified an 80-year cycle in American history, punctuated by great crises that destroyed an old order and created a new one. Though their theory is not widely taught in colleges or discussed in the media, Strauss and Howe may well play a major role in Donald Trump's administration. Stephen Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News who has been appointed Trump’s chief strategist in the White House, is very familiar with Strauss and Howe’s theory of crisis, and has been thinking about how to use it to achieve particular goals for quite a while. I know this because Bannon interviewed both Neil Howe and myself in 2009 while he was making a documentary film about the ongoing financial crisis. What will they do? I did not agree, and said so.

NaturaLista · Aves (Clase Aves) Descripción de Ver en Wikipedia (ES) → Las aves habitan en todos los biomas terrestres, y también en todos los océanos. El tamaño puede ser desde 6,4 cm en el colibrí zunzuncito hasta 2,74 metros en el avestruz. Los comportamientos son diversos y notables, como en la anidación, la alimentación de las crías, las migraciones, el apareamiento y la tendencia a la asociación en grupos. La comunicación entre las aves es variable y puede implicar señales visuales, llamadas y cantos. El ser humano ha tenido una intensa relación con las aves. Pitangus sulphuratus En America su grito agudo da origen al nombre común onomatopéyico que lleva pitogüé. Origen y evolución[editar] Origen dinosauriano de las aves[editar] La visión del consenso en la paleontología contemporánea es que las aves son el grupo más cercano a los deinonicosaurios, que incluyen a dromeosáuridos y troodóntidos.

Straw man A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument that was not presented by that opponent.[1] One who engages in this fallacy is said to be "attacking a straw man." The typical straw man argument creates the illusion of having completely refuted or defeated an opponent's proposition through the covert replacement of it with a different proposition (i.e., "stand up a straw man") and the subsequent refutation of that false argument ("knock down a straw man") instead of the opponent's proposition.[2][3] This technique has been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly in arguments about highly charged emotional issues where a fiery "battle" and the defeat of an "enemy" may be more valued than critical thinking or an understanding of both sides of the issue. Origin[edit] Structure[edit] The straw man fallacy occurs in the following pattern of argument:

Citas textuales: ortotipografía de las citas largas | Nisaba La definición de cita larga, como vimos en un artículo anterior, es un límite arbitrario establecido según el manual de estilo bibliográfico que se esté utilizando. En APA se sitúa en cuarenta palabras; en MLA, se define como una cita superior a cuatro renglones; Roberto Zavala la traza en cinco renglones (1995: p. 301) y José Martínez de Sousa en más de seis líneas (Martínez, 2007: p. 72). Personalmente preferiría una medida en caracteres, así que recomiendo la propuesta de APA, por ser menos sujeta a cambio que el ancho del renglón o la línea de cada caja tipográfica. Las citas textuales largas se sacan del discurso principal, no se integran al párrafo, ni están sujetas a su puntuación: se convierten en un párrafo independiente, en donde aplican varios cambios tipográficos. Ausencia de comillas. En todos los casos, las citas se escriben sin comillas. Estas corresponden a variantes que a menudo encontramos en alguna publicación, pero cada vez se ven en menor cantidad.

The FBI, Watergate And Deep Throat - What Really Happened When Nixon Fell The following is excerpted from the new book “Enemies: A History of the FBI” by National Book Award-winner Tim Weiner [Random House, $30.00]: On May 2, 1972, in the darkness before dawn, J. Edgar Hoover died in his sleep. It rained all day as his closed casket lay on a black catafalque in the rotunda of the United States Capitol. “Oh, he died at the right time, didn’t he?” A few minutes after Hoover’s casket left the Capitol, the acting attorney general, Richard Kleindienst, telephoned his most loyal assistant at the Justice Department, L. “Pat, I am going to appoint you acting director of the FBI,” he said. “You have to be joking,” Gray replied. Gray was fifty-five years old, and he had never held an authority greater than the command of a submarine. “Never, never figure that anyone’s your friend,” the president said. Gray lacked steel. Thus began the dark ages of the FBI. “The delicate question of the President’s power” “Bremer, the assailant, is in good physical shape,” Felt reported.

amazon Discrimination and Disadvantage: January 2015 (Post by Kevin Timpe) I want to go on record, here at the very start of this blog, and thank Thomas for all the excellent work behind the scenes to get this blog organized and running. As with Flickers of Freedom and the X-Phi blog, he does a lot of work to get these blogs set-up and to keep them running smoothly. The kinds of issues that we see the blog focusing on are not new to the sphere of philosophical reflection. Many of the issues raised by these and other discussions are issues of ethics or (inclusive) political philosophy. As is mentioned in the first post here, this blog began (if one can point to a 'beginning moment' at all) with a question posted on Facebook concerning the perceived need for a group blog or FB page for discussing the philosophy of disability. We decided to change the name to 'Discrimination and Disadvantace' in order to reinforce the following: we intend this blog to cover a wide range of issues. We're both very optimistic about this venue.

Why Scholars Doubt the Traditional Authors of the Gospels Matthew Wade Ferguson The traditional authors of the canonical Gospels—Matthew the tax collector, Mark the attendant of Peter, Luke the attendant of Paul, and John the son of Zebedee—are doubted among the majority of mainstream New Testament scholars. The public is often not familiar, however, with the complex reasons and methodology that scholars use to reach well-supported conclusions about critical issues, such as assessing the authorial traditions for ancient texts. To provide a good overview of the majority opinion about the Gospels, the Oxford Annotated Bible (a compilation of multiple scholars summarizing dominant scholarly trends for the last 150 years) states (p. 1744): Neither the evangelists nor their first readers engaged in historical analysis. As scholarly sources like the Oxford Annotated Bible note, the Gospels are not historical works (even if they contain some historical kernels). How do we determine the authors of ancient texts? Internal Evidence External Evidence 1. 2.
