Piccolo Cabotaggio II (Parole in navigazione) Films for HS Government Class Briefly, I like to show docs over fictional films (though I'm willing to go to fiction) and like them when they are shorter (these ARE teenagers!). The guys are generally (though not entirely) from upper middle class families, so I try to avoid films that have a clear bias (i.e, the presence of Michael Moore is an automatic disqualifier). I have had success with the following: The Fog of War (always high marks) Why We Fight (good, but some complain of bias, especially the scenes with McCain) When the Levies Broke (in retrospect, too long and some complaints about Spike Lee) Seven Days in May (fictional, but awesome!) Ken Burns, Congress (they thought it was boring) As of right now, I plan on showing The Fog of War and two shortish global warming films: The 11th Hour and Too Hot Not to Handle--I really like the latter, but the former does a good job talking about govt policy. Screened: The Corporation: too long/too biased

La notte dei lampi - I. Il lavoro del poeta. Saggio su Gaston Bachelard Giovanni Piana La notte dei lampi - Quattro saggi sulla filosofia dell'immaginazione, I, Il lavoro del poeta. Saggio su Gaston Bachelard La notte dei lampi - Parte I (315.45 kB) (pp. 73) Le figure sono tratte da dipinti di Odilon Redon. Indice 1. Nell’ampia produzione di Bachelard sulla tematica dell’immaginazione, la Poetica dello spazio[1] merita certo di essere considerata come un’opera che apre un nuovo corso: in essa infatti interviene una modificazione metodologica che egli caratterizza con il termine di fenomenologia. È cosa nota che la posizione epistemologica di Bachelard è stata realmente apprezzata nel suo giusto valore e nella sua portata solo in questo ultimo decennio. Ciò è dovuto a numerose circostanze di ordine diverso, legate in parte alle vicende della cultura francese, dominata prima dal bergsonismo,di fronte al quale Bachelard aveva preso una posizione ostile, poi dall’esistenzialismo,al quale Bachelard reagì in maniera altrettanto ostile. 2.

Omer Goldman | Moral Heroes Source: The end of high school is an exciting time for most students. In many countries it means a journey into higher education and/or the beginning of an adult life. The outgoing and friendly Omer Goldman grew up in the Tel-Aviv suburb of Ramat HaSharon. For most of her childhood, Omer felt that her efforts to protect human rights would come after her mandatory service in the military. “In Israel, when you are born, you are a soldier to be… when you challenge them they attack you personally.” – Omer Goldman At the age of 16 Omer went on a trip to Shufa with a group called Combatants for Peace. “I often traveled to the occupied territories, and saw with my own eyes, what the Israeli army is there are things which I cannot cooperate.” – Omer Goldman From this point on Omer realized that being in the military would force her to do unjust things. The challenge at home came when she built up the courage to tell her father of her plans.

What is a PAC? Political Action Committee (PAC) — A popular term for a political committee organized for the purpose of raising and spending money to elect and defeat candidates. Most PACs represent business, labor or ideological interests. PACs can give $5,000 to a candidate committee per election (primary, general or special). They can also give up to $15,000 annually to any national party committee, and $5,000 annually to any other PAC. PACs may receive up to $5,000 from any one individual, PAC or party committee per calendar year. PACs have been around since 1944, when the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) formed the first one to raise money for the re-election of President Franklin D. Many politicians also form Leadership PACs as a way of raising money to help fund other candidates' campaigns. For more information on PACs, check out the FEC's "Campaign Guide for Corporations and Labor Organizations" and the "Campaign Guide for Nonconnected Committees" (both available in PDF format).

Prontuario di pronunce per il manager wannabe ammerigano – Fraintesa Amici milanesi (e non), è da tanto che vi osservo e vi ascolto. E voglio dirvi che potete fare di meglio. Vi piace usare anglicismi ad cazzum, sentirvi i top in ogni situescion? - browser: no, non si legge “brooooser”. P.S.: ho volutamente scritto le pronunce utilizzando l’alfabeto italiano e non quello fonetico, perché se uno pronuncia male una parola in inglese, vuol dire che non si prende la briga di leggere la trascrizione fonetica sul dizionario per imparare la pronuncia corretta…quindi ho pensato che questa versione grezza per pigri fosse più adatta all’uso del manager di fretta wannabe ammerigano.

Super PACs Super PACs are a new kind of political action committee created in July 2010 following the outcome of a federal court case known as v. Federal Election Commission. Technically known as independent expenditure-only committees, Super PACs may raise unlimited sums of money from corporations, unions, associations and individuals, then spend unlimited sums to overtly advocate for or against political candidates. Super PACs must, however, report their donors to the Federal Election Commission on a monthly or quarterly basis -- the Super PAC's choice -- as a traditional PAC would. Unlike traditional PACs, Super PACs are prohibited from donating money directly to political candidates. As of July 23, 2013, 1,310 groups organized as Super PACs have reported total receipts of $828,224,700 and total independent expenditures of $609,417,654 in the 2012 cycle.
