Blog - Mohiomap There has been a lot happening at Mohio lately. We have moved to a new office, hired 2 more talented people, and have been diligently working on the next version of Mohiomap. Continue reading For power networker Frank Bastone, building connections and nurturing relationships is everything. Every single week he makes a point to attend at least 2-3 networking events, in order to expand his horizons and help his business grow. As any networker knows, collections of contact names, business cards and notes can become extremely large very quickly – leaving you with one big problem, how to connect them to one another so that both parties walk away with added value. Paul Watzlawick Paul Watzlawick (July 25, 1921 – March 31, 2007) was an Austrian-American family therapist, psychologist, communications theorist, and philosopher. A theoretician in communication theory and radical constructivism, he commented in the fields of family therapy and general psychotherapy. Watzlawick believed that people create their own suffering in the very act of trying to fix their emotional problems. He was one of the most influential figures at the Mental Research Institute and lived and worked in Palo Alto, California. Life After he graduated from high school in 1939 in his hometown of Villach, Austria, Watzlawick studied philosophy and philology at the Università Ca' Foscari Venice and earned a doctor of philosophy degree in 1949.
Spanish Language Exercises Welcome to the Spanish Language Exercises web page, hosted by Ursinus College. This site presents a series of language exercises for the purpose of facilitating the learning and teaching of Spanish in the Internet environment. These exercises were born out of the need to incorporate new materials into my teaching practices and because of my curiosity about the emergence and popularity of new technologies. Rather than presenting here a comprehensive display of grammar exercises, I offer examples of different approaches to common language challenges for the foreign student of Spanish. My intention is, thus, to share ideas with instructors and students alike, leaving to the former the pedagogical decisions of how to better utilize these exercises, and hoping that the latter will really benefit from this hypertextual experience.

Sign and spoken language interpreting: a componential approach to skills deve... Based on my many years of experience in American Sign Language interpreting and interpreter education I am pleased to share some insights with you. Some may think there are many important differences between signed and spoken language interpreting. However the underlying processes of interpretation are overwhelmingly similar regardless of language pair. There are many more similarities than differences in comparing signed and spoken language interpreting. In either signed or spoken language interpreting, messages are conveyed from one language to another. (Yes, American Sign Language is a language, no, it is not universal.)
Man Eats 2 Tbs of Coconut Oil Twice a Day for 60 Days and This Happens to His Brain! Dr. Mary Newport has a theory that ketone bodies, which the body makes when digesting coconut oil, may be an alternative fuel for the brain.

Biographical Sketch Wittgenstein was born on April 26, 1889 in Vienna, Austria, to a wealthy industrial family, well-situated in intellectual and cultural Viennese circles.

Upon Frege's advice, in 1911 he went to Cambridge to study with Bertrand Russell.

Scientists should stop writing in the passive voice Photo by Fotokostic/Shutterstock As a group, scientists are not widely admired for their prose style. To no small extent, this derives from their insistence on the passive voice, that boogeyman of basic composition classes. Nevertheless, the style has its defenders: Two experts in scientific style recently took to Reddit to debate the convention, taking positions for and against the passive voice in scientific writing. Their conversation reveals that quarrels about the active and passive voices have more to do with the way our culture discusses science than they do with arbitrary quirks of style. Few ostensible rules are more poorly understood than the prohibition against the passive voice, partly because the passive voice itself is poorly understood.
de versus code As part of a bigger project I’m hoping to get stuck into later in the year, I updated my tabular comparison of different interpreting Codes of Conduct/Ethics from the fields of both conference and public service interpreting in both spoken and signed languages. First, updates: I added in the 2011 version of NRPSI’s code – nothing very exciting, mostly just housekeeping after the separation from CIOL and a new directive to actually respond to the complaints process. ITI also has a new 2013 version, which lost nothing from before but added several new things: they are now the only organisation to explicitly forbid price fixing, bribery and poaching work from other members. But then I left the UK for the first time and went into the NAD-RID Code of Professional Conduct for ASL/English interpreters, which was somewhat surprising and threw up quite a few isolated things that no British terp has ever thought needed spelling out. I exaggerate somewhat for comic effect.
