Literature and Latte - Scapple for Mac OS X and Windows Rough It Out Scapple doesn’t force you to make connections, and it doesn’t expect you to start out with one central idea off of which everything else is branched. There’s no built-in hierarchy at all, in fact—in Scapple, every note is equal, so you can connect them however you like. The idea behind Scapple is simple: when you are roughing out ideas, you need complete freedom to experiment with how those ideas best fit together. It’s Scapple Simple Creating notes is as easy as double-clicking anywhere on the canvas and then typing; making connections between ideas is as painless as dragging and dropping one note onto another.
Mesopotamian Astronomy - Babylonian and Persian History Ever since man first looked up at the stars and asked the question, “Are we Alone?” the history of astronomy has shaped the course of human society, connecting science with the inbuilt human spirituality and sense of wonder at the unimaginable vastness of the cosmos. Now seen as the domain of loveable eccentrics, such as Patrick Moore, the late, great Carl Sagan, and Brian May, it is easy to forget how the science of astronomy has pervaded nearly every aspect of human history, and oversaw the rise and fall of great civilizations.
INGOs of the future: Redefining the vanguard of corporate-nonprofit partnership Bricolage, or tinkering in French, is an increasingly common term in social innovation circles, particularly in resource-constrained environments in which taking advantage of available ideas and frameworks is the de facto recipe for innovation. And what social innovator driven by a desire to create change doesn’t like to tinker? For the nonprofit sector, bricolage might involve identifying the forces that prevent systems change and realigning the actors and resources involved in addressing a social issue to optimize collaboration and impact. FSG’s Shared Value Initiative has been convening a group of leading international nongovernmental organizations to rethink, renovate and transform their approach to partnership with companies.
How To Clear Your Data From Google & Attempt To Regain Some Of Your Privacy At the moment, I am reading a fascinating must-read book called Dragnet Nation by Julia Angwin. Angwin is a former Wall Street Journal journalist who covers online privacy-related stories, and Dragnet Nation is a highly researched book, where she demonstrates how much you have willingly thrown away your privacy to online marketers, advertisers, and spammers. It is a scary eye-opening piece of work, and so well written that, 10 pages in, you’ll be frantically rushing online to start purging your data. Which is exactly what I did: purge my data. Lots of it. Then I binge watched the TV show Person of Interest, and that made me switch my phone off and remove the battery and SIM card.
Manufacturing the Illusion of Democracy – Chris Hedges “We’ve bought into the idea that education is about training and “success,” defined monetarily, rather than learning to think critically and to challenge. We should not forget that the true purpose of education is to make minds, not careers. The words consent of the governed have become an empty phrase. Our textbooks on political science and economics are obsolete. 10 Search Engines to Explore the Invisible Web No, it’s not Spiderman’s latest web slinging tool but something that’s more real world. Like the World Wide Web. The Invisible Web refers to the part of the WWW that’s not indexed by the search engines. Most of us think that that search powerhouses like Google and Bing are like the Great Oracle”¦they see everything. Unfortunately, they can’t because they aren’t divine at all; they are just web spiders who index pages by following one hyperlink after the other. But there are some places where a spider cannot enter.
Gospel of John The Gospel of John (also referred to as the Gospel According to John, the Fourth Gospel, or simply John) is one of the four canonical gospels in the Christian Bible. In the New Testament it traditionally appears fourth, after the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. John begins with the witness and affirmation of John the Baptist and concludes with the death, burial, resurrection, and post-resurrection appearances of Jesus. Chapter 21 states that the book derives from the testimony of the "disciple whom Jesus loved" and early church tradition identified him as John the Apostle, one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles. The gospel is closely related in style and content to the three surviving Epistles of John such that commentators treat the four books, along with the Book of Revelation, as a single body of Johannine literature. According to most modern scholars, however, the apostle John was not the author of any of these books.

Faced with the enormous social and economic upheavals at the nineteenth century’s end, learned Victorians like Walter Pater, John Ruskin, and Matthew Arnold looked to High Church models and played the bishops of Western culture, with a monkish devotion to preserving and transmitting old texts and traditions and turning back to simpler ways of life. It was in 1909, the nadir of this milieu, before the advent of modernism and world war, that The Harvard Classics took shape.
