Perceptual Science Group at MIT Qu'est devenue Jane Burgermeister ? Comme on pouvait s’y attendre, les faits ont apporté un violent démenti aux prophéties apocalyptiques de Jane Burgermeister. Un an plus tard, force est de constater que le vaccin antigrippal n’a pas eu les conséquences funestes contre lesquelles les opposants à la vaccination nous avaient mis en garde. A l’époque, Jane Burgermeister avait été suivie dans son délire par tout le web conspirationniste : le Réseau Voltaire, de Thierry Meyssan ; Oulala.net, de René Balme ; Bellaciao.org, de Roberto Ferrario ; La Voix des Opprimés, de Smaïn Bedrouni ; Alterinfo.net, de Zeynel Cekici ; le site suisse Horizons et Débats ; Mecanopolis.org, de Frédéric Courvoisier ; les sites d’Alex Jones ; ou encore Mondialisation.ca, de Michel Chossudovsky, et sa version anglophone, GlobalResearch.ca. Ce site a publié en juillet 2009 un article de Jane Burgermeister dont la page a aujourd’hui été tout bonnement supprimée. Paranoïa

Systemic Functional Theory The founder of SYSTEMIC FUNCTIONAL THEORY, M.A.K. Halliday, characterizes its origins as follows in his entry on "systemic theory" in the Encyclopedia of Language & Linguistics (Pergamon Press): Systemic, or Systemic-Functional, theory has its origins in the main intellectual tradition of European linguistics that developed following the work of Saussure. Its immediate source is as a development of scale-&-category grammar. This step was taken by Halliday in the early 1960s (1963, 1965), so that grammatical and phonological representations could be freed from constraints of structure. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, the following information sources maintained by the Systemic Modelling Group at Macquarie can be consulted:

SWOT analysis A SWOT analysis, with its four elements in a 2×2 matrix. A SWOT analysis (alternatively SWOT matrix) is a structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved in a project or in a business venture. A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieve that objective. Strengths: characteristics of the business or project that give it an advantage over others.Weaknesses: characteristics that place the business or project at a disadvantage relative to others.Opportunities: elements that the project could exploit to its advantage.Threats: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the business or project. Identification of SWOTs is important because they can inform later steps in planning to achieve the objective. Use[edit] Criticism[edit]
