Sultry Fakenamey is one of the premier writers of erotica who hides her real identity and hopes someday to be respected for her literary efforts that so far everyone says are incredible, but they also kind of smile sympathetically and knowingly because writers in genres other than erotica make as much money as... Well, even though everyone and her sister is getting an MFA these days, the chances of a writer being successful are the same as the chances of the average kid who hopes to grow up someday to be a famous baseball player but really ends up playing softball every weekend while his wife rolls her eyes and brings beers to him and his buddies because...

Understanding our humanity - the essence of who we are - is one of the deepest mysteries and biggest challenges in modern science. Why do we have bad moods? Why are we capable of having such strange dreams? How can metaphors in our language hold such sway on our actions? As we learn more about the mechanisms of human behavior through evolutionary biology, neuroscience, anthropology, and other related fields, we're discovering just how intriguing the human species is. And while scientists are continually uncovering similarities between our behavior and that of other animals, they're also finding insights into everything that makes us unique from any other species. Join an acclaimed neurobiologist, award-winning teacher, and MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" recipient in a series of 12 invigorating lectures that offer a surprising and undeniably fascinating study of what makes you you, journeying to the front lines of scientific research to gain a new perspective on the quirky nature of being ourselves. Professor Sapolsky explores our humanity by investigating mysterious and sometimes even mundane aspects of human behavior, including bad moods, nostalgia, and dreams, packing the lectures with stories of bold experiments and case studies that illuminate the intricacies of our behavior. Thought-provoking, witty, and sometimes myth-shattering, this course is sure to have you thinking about and appreciating your life in novel ways.

Metaphors we make sense by
94,90 € *

This study explores metaphors we use to make sense of organizational reality. One hundred thirty-two mission statements collected across the University of North Carolina system comprise the textual source of analysis. Austin and Searle s speech act theory is employed to intertextually identify metaphors, which are then analyzed in line with Weick s framework of sensemaking. Elements of the sensemaking process are evidenced in hierarchical metaphors: (i) environment-screening: environment as change (organizations as positioned, time-pacer, and wind-catcher), (ii) enactment: enactment as changer (the university as a plate of loose sand, professional, and mission-setter), (iii) selection: organization as relevance-maker (the university as teacher, researcher, server, strategist, and goal-hitter), (iv) retention: organization as retainer (the university as value-keeper and role-player (center, community, leader, and leader-preparer), and (v) remembering: organization as rememberer (the university as history-defender and principle-observer). Together, they comprise metaphors we make sense by.

Privileging Maori Metaphors To Teach, Heal & Re...

This research asks whether metaphors can be used in education and mental health to improve Maori cultural identity. It asserts that Maori, like many other indigenous cultures, are doing poorly in many areas including mental health and education due to a loss of cultural identity, as a result of the process of colonization. It establishes that metaphors are effective teaching tools, and shows where they have been successfully used in many areas, including hypnotherapy. A framework is given, called The 7 Card Spread which guides the reader in how to structure metaphors within a therapy or teaching session. Card games are suggested to allow the teacher or mental health worker an opportunity to practice their metaphor building skills. The reader is taken through the process of writing metaphors using a map, where the problem, connecting strategy and outcome, are identified. Metaphor examples for both teachers and mental health workers are provided and discussed. The metaphors for mental health workers contain hypnotic techniques and are intended to complement their existing strategies. The examples to be used in the classroom are straightforward, without hypnotic content.
