Peacemaker Violence Prevention Lesson Plans and Education K-12 The PeaceMakers curriculum is a proven-effective K-12 public school-based program developed by the FreeWay Project in 1996. It has been field-tested in hundreds of Missouri classrooms. The curriculum is based on the concept that violence begins with attitudes of mind, progresses through angry speech, and results in hostile actions. It uses dozens of interactive games and activities to teach students to speak courteously and treat others politely, with dignity and respect . . . the same way they would like to be spoken to and treated. PeaceMakers curriculum uses fresh lesson plans and challenging learning activities to teach three fundamental principles: 1. 2. 3. The curriculum is user-friendly.

Karma - Clean and Modern Wordpress Theme Counterterrorism and the English Language The New York Times is finally calling torture by its name. Why did it wait so long? Alex Torrenegra/Flickr The announcement that the New York Times will now refer to Bush Administration torture by its proper name is welcome news, tempered only by Executive Editor Dean Baquet's unfortunate attempt to rationalize the old policy. But every torturing government insists that its interrogations are not, in fact, illegal torture. All that has been known for years! Then Baquet wrote: Meanwhile, the Justice Department, under both the Bush and Obama administrations, has made clear that it will not prosecute in connection with the interrogation program. This seems perilously close to declaring that whether torture is the most accurate way to describe waterboarding depends on whether any Bush Administration officials remain in jeopardy of being prosecuted and imprisoned for it. The Times failed to call torture by its rightful name because it failed as an institution. There are other possibilities.

Advanced Post Types Order | Nsp Code How to change WordPress Posts Order ? How to do that.. The WordPress core developers implemented this great tool called "custom post type", but a very limited method to make such posts content ordered was supplied. This great plug-in come to help on that matter, any custom post type hierarchically or not can now be sorted by category, date, search, through a very easy and intuitive way using a jQuery Drag and Drop Interface driven by an AJAX engine. Is this plugin right for me? This is simple to answer, do you need to order WordPress custom post types including default posts and pages? I love the fact that your plug-in is very easy to use and came to it from a recommendation by Pagelines who created the theme PlatformPro. I want to thank you for this great plug-in, it's a great piece of code which look's like it's getting allot of attention during last time. This plug-in is what I've been looking for for a long time! How about to auto-sort the post types by a custom field?

Does Language Influence our View of the World? We use language to describe our subjective perception of the world. If I say “I feel cold”, then I use language to describe how I feel. This is nothing new. The idea that that the language that we use can influence the way that we think is nothing new. People organize space and time based on the language that they use. Color perception is a second example (1), which demonstrates how language can influence cognitive ability. George Orwell’s book 1984 describes the language “Newspeak” which serves as a further example of the Saphir-Whorf-Hypothesis. The question that know ask myself is, if there is no word for a particular idea or concept, does it mean that the people are not aware of the existence of this concept at all? The consequence of the Sphir-Whorf-Hypothesis is far reaching. Here is my personal collection of words which exist in the German language but are difficult to translate into English.

The Future of the City Is Childless Read: The Steady Destruction of America’s Cities New York is the poster child of this urban renaissance. But as the city has attracted more wealth, housing prices have soared alongside the skyscrapers, and young families have found staying put with school-age children more difficult. In high-density cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., no group is growing faster than rich college-educated whites without children, according to Census analysis by the economist Jed Kolko. Cities were once a place for families of all classes. The counties that make up Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia shed a combined 2 million domestic residents from 2010 to 2018. But if big cities are shedding people, they’re growing in other ways—specifically, in wealth and workism.

Elizabeth Warren's GOP Past Could Help Her in 2020 The question for her, then, is whether she’s willing to try turning a weakness into a strength by dusting off a piece of her past and making it not merely a whispered admission, but a central part of the story she tells voters. Yes, I was a Republican, and this is why I’m not anymore. Warren’s reluctance so far suggests she thinks that chapter is something to apologize for. Perhaps she should embrace it instead. The conservative streak that Katrina Cochran remembers was still with Warren when, in the early 1980s, the young law professor made the biggest jump of her fledgling academic career and moved from the University of Houston to the larger and more prestigious UT Austin. Russell Weintraub, then a law professor at UT Austin, recruited Warren after seeing her teach. But Warren stood out in other ways, Johnson said. Warren was decidedly not left-wing.

We will also ask you (optionally) to report your attitudes or beliefs about these topics and provide some information about yourself. We ask these questions because the IAT can be more valuable if you also describe your own self-understanding of the attitude or stereotype that the IAT measures. We would also like to compare differences between people and groups. Data Privacy: Data exchanged with this site are protected by SSL encryption. Important disclaimer: In reporting to you results of any IAT test that you take, we will mention possible interpretations that have a basis in research done (at the University of Washington, University of Virginia, Harvard University, and Yale University) with these tests. I am aware of the possibility of encountering interpretations of my IAT test performance with which I may not agree. I wish to proceed.
