Inaugural Address

On March 17, when I first arrived on the Farm in my new role as President-elect, I was put to what you might call an "advanced placement test. " I flunked it -; as my fellow first-year students will be reassured, if not delighted, to learn. I had dinner with a group of excellent people to discuss the following day's news conference when Professor Sheehan, of the History Department, innocently - or not so innocently - asked me whether I knew Stanford's motto. I had no choice but to admit my ignorance. DFWKenyonAddress2005.pdf. Genesis — introduction. Genesis is the first book of the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy), the first section of the Jewish and the Christian Scriptures.

Genesis — introduction

Its title in English, “Genesis,” comes from the Greek of Gn 2:4, literally, “the book of the generation (genesis) of the heavens and earth.” Its title in the Jewish Scriptures is the opening Hebrew word, Bereshit, “in the beginning.” The book has two major sections—the creation and expansion of the human race (2:4–11:9), and the story of Abraham and his descendants (11:10–50:26).

The first section deals with God and the nations, and the second deals with God and a particular nation, Israel. The opening creation account (1:1–2:3) lifts up two themes that play major roles in each section—the divine command to the first couple (standing for the whole race) to produce offspring and to possess land (1:28).

What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team

A classmate mentioned that some students were putting together teams for ‘‘case competitions,’’ contests in which participants proposed solutions to real-world business problems that were evaluated by judges, who awarded trophies and cash. The competitions were voluntary, but the work wasn’t all that different from what Rozovsky did with her study group: conducting lots of research and financial analyses, writing reports and giving presentations. The members of her case-competition team had a variety of professional experiences: Army officer, researcher at a think tank, director of a health-education nonprofit organization and consultant to a refugee program.

Our Animal Hell by Robert Pogue Harrison. Whether or not one believes that the Judeo-Christian God exists, there is much to ponder in what Pope Francis reportedly told a distraught boy whose dog had died.

Our Animal Hell by Robert Pogue Harrison

According to The New York Times, Francis assured him that he would be reunited with his pet “in the eternity of Christ” and—in the spirit of his papal namesake—declared that “Paradise is open to all of God’s creatures.”* Since we are a society that loves our dogs as much as we love God, the American media focused almost exclusively on the statement’s implications for canine pets; but a broader, far darker import lurks at the heart of the Pope’s words. The Pope spoke not of dogs but of all of God’s creatures. Where does that leave humankind? To call us a species among others is both correct and misleading, for whether by divine design or nature’s random ways, Homo sapiens has extended its dominion over everything that walks, crawls, swims, or flies. This makes us a singular, unearthly kind of creature. MLA Formatting and Style Guide.

Illustration by Alex Eben Meyer It has become fashionable to say that people have no free will. Richard Dawkins. Free Will Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. 1. Rational Deliberation. Free will : Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online. ‘Free will’ is the conventional name of a topic that is best discussed without reference to the will.

Its central questions are ‘What is it to act (or choose) freely?’ , and ‘What is it to be morally responsible for one’s actions (or choices)?’ These two questions are closely connected, for freedom of action is necessary for moral responsibility, even if it is not sufficient.
