Ethnomethodology Ethnomethodology is the study of methods people use for understanding and producing the social order in which they live.[1] It generally seeks to provide an alternative to mainstream sociological approaches.[2] In its most radical form, it poses a challenge to the social sciences as a whole.[3] On the other hand, its early investigations led to the founding of conversation analysis, which has found its own place as an accepted discipline within the academy. According to Psathas, it is possible to distinguish five major approaches within the ethnomethodological family of disciplines.[4] Definition[edit] The term's etymology can be broken down into its three constituent parts: ethno - method - ology, for the purpose of explanation. Origin and scope[edit] This interest developed out of Garfinkel's critque of Talcott Parsons' attempt to derive a general theory of society. Theory and methods[edit] Some leading policies, methods and definitions[edit] Differences with sociology[edit] Notes[edit]

Institute for Traditional Medicine | ITM | Portland, OR Doug's Sword Blade Making Page This page gets its start from an answer to an email message, like several other pages here. Here's the original message: My name is Scott From Australia. My questions are, if I make a sword from spring steel would it have to be tempered and heat treated for re-enactment purposes. just checking anyway.) forging, what would you recommend be the best tools to use. Thanks Scott. And the answer follows: If the spring steel is already heat treated into being a spring, and if you don't damage the heat treating by overheating the steel while grinding it, then you wouldn't have to re-temper. If it does get overheated, which is over 400 or 500 degrees, then it has to be hardened before tempering. If the steel is not already heat treated, and if it's difficult to get it done, try it without heat treating. To put a fuller in the blade without forging, I would use the edge of the wheel of an angle grinder. Automotive leaf springs are very good steel for swords, but normally seem a bit too thick. Hi Doug

Contrasting Values Attitudes and Behaviors Talking for the sake of talking is discouraged. In days past in their own society, Indians found it unnecessary to say hello, good-bye, how are you, and so on. Even today, many Indians find this type of small talk unimportant. In social interactions, Indians emphasize the feeling or emotional component rather than the verbal. Ideas and feelings are conveyed through behavior rather than speech. Educational Considerations The difference in the degree of verbosity may create a situation in which the Indian does not have a chance to talk at all.

Northwest Coast Archaeology uot Keeping of the Soul Back Keeping of the Soul - Nagi Gluhapi This is the first one of the seven sacred rites of the Lakota Sioux people and lasts about one year. The physical body of a deceased Sioux was placed in trees or on wooden (scaffold) platforms high enough to protect the body from animals and wrapped in hides and allowed to decay until nothing of the body was left. Well known leaders were buried in secret places, unknown places, if the family or friends were able to do that for the individual. Today, they are buried in cemeteries as is done in other cultures. Grieving is a natural process with those who lose a loved one, whether it be a family member or friend or someone known or admired. Some tribes practices for mourning included those close to the deceased painting their faces black, cutting their long hair short, and cutting of their arms and legs to show their grief. This sacred rite helps the transition of mourning the loss to it becoming less painful and takes much time to do. Sources: Back
