Out of Character: The Psychology of Good and Evil by Maria Popova What Aristotle has to do with Tiger Woods and the story of the world. The dichotomy of good and evil is as old as the story of the world, and timeless in its relevance to just about everything we do in life, from our political and spiritual views to our taste in music, art and literature to how we think about our simple dietary choices. But while most of us recognize that these concepts of good and bad aren’t always black-and-white categories, we never cease to be surprised when someone or something we’ve perceived as “good” does or becomes something we perceive as “bad,” from an esteemed politician’s transgression to a beloved celebrity’s slip into addiction or scientology or otherwise socially undesirable behavior.
Career Center Cara works in risk and strategy for an international oil company in Houston, Texas. Prior to graduating in 2008 with a degree in International Studies, Cara studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There, she sealed her interest in energy after experiencing repeated rolling power outages in the capital of the resource rich country. During her senior year, Cara worked with two professors on power and energy related research, developing critical quantitative skills and industry knowledge that helped her land her first job as a research analyst covering the US oil and gas industry at consultancy Wood Mackenzie.
Hollywood's Young Shoulders: De-Mystifying the UTA Job List: 4.41 A little while back,I mentioned the UTA joblist and many of you were kind enough to send me a copy. The latest ones I duly sent on to the very grateful fledgling assistants. (one even said I was God, as if my ego needs to get bigger...point is, they were grateful, so thanks) So I was doing some research (read: about 5 minutes of lazy Googling) into the history of the UTA list and reading many of the emails accompanying the list-- many of which were reviews of its effectiveness. Some were quite critical, while others seem convinced of its usefulness.
Deciphering Target’s Clearance Sales I got some clearance deals at Target this week. I was reminded of an article I read a while back that talked about Target’s corporate price reduction policies. Here’s the brief article from The Consumerist. Once you learn these simple rules you’ll know the difference between a good clearance deal and a great one.
Sankhyakarika The miracle of a perpetually dynamic Universe is enabled when two opposing factors in an interactive state occur simultaneously. Compression and expansion are two opposing activities but when it takes place simultaneously, activity time is conserved and the dynamic state continues. The theoretical clue, lacking in Physics and Cosmology is the numerical algorithm that defines the threshold of simultaneously interactive states, which is also the key to gravitation phenomena. Newtons gravity constant and the fine structure constant are an approximation of precise axiomatic ratios that governs all phenomena in the Universe. Such an interactive activity among the sea of components in space is called a Vriti or vortex in Sanskrit and can be visualised as shown in the adjacent diagram.
The Anonymous Production Assistant's Blog Craft Service A.K.A. “Crafty,” A.K.A. Configuring Remote Management of Hyper-V Server - in a workgroup - Virtual PC Guy's Blog I have received a number of questions about how to go about setting up remote management of our free Hyper-V server (not the one that is part of Windows). So I thought I would sit down and write up a set of blog posts to talk about how to do this. Today I am going to talk about how to remotely manage a Hyper-V server from a Windows 7 desktop when in a workgroup environment. I am going to assume that you have already installed Hyper-V server and have configured the server name, workgroup name and networking appropriately (in my case – the server name is “Server1” and the workgroup name is “WORKGROUP” – not very original, I know).
Japanese Zen Buddhist Philosophy 1. The Meaning of the Term Zen The designation of this school of the Buddha-Way as Zen, which means sitting meditation, is derived from a transliteration of the Chinese word Chán. Because the Chinese term is in turn a transliteration of the Sanskrit term dhyāna, however, Zen owes its historical origin to early Indian Buddhism, where a deepened state of meditation, called samādhi, was singled out as one of the three components of study a Buddhist was required to master, the other two being an observation of ethical precepts (sīla) and an embodiment of nondiscriminatory wisdom (prajñā).
