A story/dialogue method for health promotion knowledge development and evaluation. (1/98)

Arguments have been made in favour of a constructivist or postpositivist approach to health promotion knowledge development and program evaluation, but little has been articulated about what such an approach would look like. This article describes a 'story/dialogue method' that was created with and for practitioners in response to their concerns that much of their practice did not lend itself to a positivist, or conventional, methodology. Derived from constructivist, feminist and critical pedagogical theory, and with roots in qualitative methods, the method structures group dialogue around case stories addressing particular generative practice themes. While intended for practitioner training, organizational development and evaluation, the method to date has been used primarily for training purposes. This article describes the method, provides an example of its application, and discusses its strengths, weaknesses and relevance to health promotion.  (+info)

Ambulance notes of a Bellevue Hospital intern: May 1938. (2/98)

In 1938, as a New York University/Bellevue Hospital intern, I recorded notes on the 384 cases I saw during my 1-month ambulance duty. Although I intended to use them to follow up the clinical course of patients I admitted to Bellevue, the long hours and pressure of work made this ambitious goal unachievable. Sixty years later, after retirement from academic medicine and medical practice at New York University School of Medicine, I found the long-lost notes among my papers. They are of historic interest since they provide insight into aspects of primary and emergency medicine of the era when the therapeutic efficacy of the sulfanilamide class of agents was under investigation, a unique view of the life of an intern just before interns were replaced on ambulances by technicians, and a glimpse of the surprising character of several neighborhoods of pre-World War II Manhattan. The notes also provide the basis for a current analysis of case incidence and treatment by disease category. A description of the confluence of social, economic, and political forces that led to the establishment of the Bellevue Hospital Ambulance Service, the first such urban service in the world, is included.  (+info)

Balancing rationalities: gatekeeping in health care. (3/98)

Physicians are increasingly confronted with the consequences of allocation policies. In several countries, physicians have been assigned a gatekeeper role for secondary health care. Many ethicists oppose this assignment for several reasons, concentrating on the harm the intrusion of societal arguments would inflict on doctor-patient relations. It is argued that these arguments rest on a distinction of spheres of values and of rationality, without taking into account the mixing of values and rationalities that takes place in everyday medical practice. If medical practice, then, does not follow a single, pure rationality, can it also incorporate the societal rationality of the gatekeeper role? Using a case from general practice, I try to show how physicians may integrate societal arguments into their practice in a morally acceptable way. A version of the model of reflective equilibrium and especially Beauchamp and Childress's safeguards, may be helpful both to analyse and teach such balancing of values and rationalities.  (+info)

That's another story: narrative methods and ethical practice. (4/98)

This paper examines the use of case studies in ethics education. While not dismissing their value for specific purposes, the paper shows the limits of their use. While agreeing that case studies are narratives, although rather thin stories, the paper argues that the claim that case studies could represent reality is difficult to sustain. Instead, the paper suggests a way of using stories in ethics teaching that could be more real for students, while also giving them a way of thinking about their own professional practices. The paper shows how the method can be used to develop a more critical and reflective practice for students in the health care professions. Some immediate problems with the method are discussed.  (+info)

Acculturating human experimentation: an empirical survey in France. (5/98)

Preliminary results of an empirical study of human experimentation practices are presented and contrasted with those of a survey conducted a hundred years ago when clinical research, although tolerated, was culturally deviant. Now that biomedical research is both authorized and controlled, its actors (sponsors, committees, investigators, subjects) come out with heterogeneous rationalities, and they appear to be engaged in a transactional process of negotiating their rationales with one another. In the European context "protective" of subjects, surprisingly the subjects we interviewed (and especially patient-subjects) were creative and revealed an aptitude for integrating experimental medicine into common culture.  (+info)

Travels in Japan. (7/98)

Following his attendance at the ICMART meeting, in Myasaki in 1988, the author, a BMAS member, resolved to revisit Japan. He found that acupuncture was widely practised throughout the country; although the patients were in the main elderly. The range of techniques used ranged from TCM to western, and broadly mirrored the styles practised in the West. Most young people in Japan considered acupuncture to be rather old fashioned, and it is postulated that this contrasts with the population seeking complementary medicine in the West.  (+info)

The World Trade Center attack. Eye witness: observations of a physician on the outside looking in. (8/98)

Having personally witnessed the destruction at the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001, this paper presents my personal feelings and observations as an observer of both disaster and terror. Aside from the unimaginable horror as a result of the carnage, a feeling of helplessness was particularly prominent due to the inability to be able to care for casualties since most victims were fatalities. The passage of time has enabled a return to normalcy, however 'normalcy' carries a new definition due to the vastness of the tragedy and the sudden threat of bioterrorism and other weapons of mass destruction.  (+info)

Secondly, rather than leaving us with a collection of anecdotes, the Bill offers the prospect of making a huge step forward in medicine through the creation of a central database to record patient data. This database will be hosted at Oxford University, and work is progressing with the Department of Health to work out the details. A central database which will record each patients details, the treatment they receive and their outcomes is actually a hugely advance in medicine. With all of the patient data recorded we do not have a collection of anecdotes but a database that we can mine and explore and use to design clinical trials based on the signals we can glean from real patient data. It also means that non-standard treatments that work can be identified more quickly, and just as importantly those that do not work can also be identified and discouraged. This isnt a replacement for the clinical trial, its an advance on the system we now have ...

Heres a couple anecdotes Ive heard about unemployment insurance:. 1. A couple years ago a commenter mentioned the following story from someone who ran a hotel in California. A dozen or so maids were laid off during the recession. After a few months the owner tried to hire them back. They declined, saying that with their husbands income and their unemployment insurance checks they found they didnt need the second income. But note; if they were collecting UI then they would be required to call themselves "unemployed.". 2. A few days ago an acquaintance mentioned that he heard the following story from a Chicago taxi driver. He said it was hard to keep drivers, because theyd work for a few months and then go collect UI.. How are we to react to stories like these? Are they apocryphal? After all, you cant collect UI if you quit your job. Except you can, Ive known people who did so. Are they not politically correct? Do they represent "blaming the victim?"

About the Author Ravindra Varma is a learned scholar, who has been running the Institute of Gandhian Studies at Gopuri, Wardha for several years. He has been introducing the youth, especially the college students and post-graduates, to the life and message of Gandhiji. His knowledge and study of Gandhian ideology is deep, and to the best of my knowledge he has been trying his level best to live according to the Gandhian ideology. This gives depth to whatever he says or writes. He has written three books on Gandhiji or I might say that he has written one book which is divided into three parts. Book one gives a narrative of Gandhijis life-story. Book 2 narrates several anecdotes that illustrate the way Bapu dealt with problems, which are very interesting. Book 3 concentrates on the implications and application of Gandhian technique and the ideology of Satyagraha, non-violence, non-cooperation and the importance of bringing about change of heart in the opponent through self-suffering.

by Anthony Waldstock. This series of articles will present occasional anecdotal, amusing and factual notes behind the people and events on the This Day in History digests. Entries are determined by the daily posting of events in history with the first entries appearing for March 10th and are arranged alphabetically. With the steady increase of material, each letter of the alphabet now (April 17th 2002) has its own page. People are indexed according to their family or surnames whereas kings, popes, emperors etc. are listed according to their regnal names- e.g. Charles Boycott would be found under B, Pope Gregory under G and Queen Mary Tudor under M. Other items are indexed by the most significant word in the title, for example Artificial Ice will be found under I but Sad Iron will be found under S.. Links back to the monthly digests for "This Day in History" can be found at the bottom of the introductory page but each of the entries on the other pages will have a link to take you back to the ...
Abstract. This paper revisits several classic anecdotes defending popular protest as an appropriate part of the political process. Some key points:. 1. The two most cited anecdotes, in the Dzwo Jwan and Gwo Yw, are dated, in those texts, to c0850 and 0542, respectively. Accepting that dating, they are too intermittent to document a tradition for the right of political expression in the ancient period. The thinness of the evidence casts doubt on the claim itself.. 2. But our researches show that both the DJ and GY texts articulate values from their own time, disguised as stories about earlier times. This was the standard way to introduce a novel idea into the Warring States political debates. The stories are then really talking about the compilation dates of those two texts, which are c0312 and c0306, respectively. Both probably reflect a late 04c political theory agitation.. 3. In support of this conclusion, we find that the corresponding strata of the Analects (LY 12-13) express very similar ...
At the Ancestral Health Symposium, I met two Whole Health Source readers, Aravind Balasubramanian and Kamal Patel, who were interested in trying a simple diet to lose fat and improve their health. In addition, they wanted to break free of certain other high-reward activities in their lives that they felt were not constructive. They recently embarked on an 8-week low-reward diet and lifestyle to test the effectiveness of the concepts. Both of them had previously achieved a stable (in Aravinds case, reduced) weight on a paleo-ish diet prior to this experiment, but they still carried more fat than they wanted to. They offered to write about their experience for WHS, and I thought other readers might find it informative. Their story is below, followed by a few of my comments ...
Although more casually than perfectly crafted, the comics in Estrus #5 prove compulsively readable. Theyre funny and sometimes affecting, making it easy to see oneself in the details, such as the way the young Mari bails on a boy because of a peers harsh appraisal or noticing the place where she and a boy had sex outside was easily seen from a nearby road. At the same time, theres always that sneaking suspicion when it comes to such personal work that the portrayals may not be fair, or that were simply peeping at the instances described, or that the experiences are forced to conform to Naomis treatments of them as a sprightly anecdotes when they could or maybe even should mean something entirely. By that I dont mean to suggest anything having to do with a factor some people are likely to hit on right away, that most of the book is given over to anecdotes stemming from a minor. I actually like the matter-of-factness that Naomi brings to that element of her story. Its more a sense that I ...
... ABOUT THIS AND ABOUT THAT. Anecdotes about sex, family, work, old age etc. In this chapter non-political jokes are gathered dealing with various matters, such as family relations, infirmities of old age, relationship between colleagues, etc, as well as those with a sexual connotation (the sex related items in this chapter are of a more restrained variety while the real off-color jokes are found in Chapter 8).. Readers of this chapter will not fail to notice that many of the sex-related jokes reveal a denigrating attitude toward women. It seems safe to assume that most of such anecdotes were created by men, and reflect certain trends in the Russian man-dominated culture. Throughout the Russian history women always had to bear the heaviest burden. However risky any generalization may be, it seems that one feature of Russian culture was that, on the one hand, a Russian woman was routinely expected to stay virgin until marriage, to be modest, chaste, and knowing her place, and on the ...

Joe Cortina March 23, 2012 @ 2:53 pm JOHN, I get your point but I believe you are mistaken about this comment as a generality for two reasons:. "How about when Germany swarmed over Poland, Belgium, and other neutral countries and annihilated thousands of innocent people? ". #1 I spent time in both those countries and never heard any such claims of such war crimes;. #2 I was married to a Ukrainian woman (Tanya) who was very well educated for her youth. The following anecdote regarding the honor and conduct of the German military towards civilians was told to me by her personally.. I thought these were interesting anecdotes. You must remember, Tanyas grandmother was Ukrainian and before Stalins purges - loyal to the Mother Country. She was NOT a Marxist however - and was, like most Ukrainians, a Christian. They were of course in the heart of the breadbasket of the Ukraine and were self sustaining farmers who owned a small bit of their own land - Kulaks. This combination of circumstances are ...
Esther and two other women at Stanford noted that there were no women professors at Stanford. All three got together to request that a woman be appointed as a professor. Esther researched the question, then all three women presented their complaint to a dean. The dean responded that none of the women were qualified, as a professor must have published enough papers and none of the women in question met this requirement. Esther pointed out that most of the male professors didnt satisfy the requirement either. The dean responded that there was not sufficient funds to appoint a woman professor. Esther pointed out that funds had been specifically allocated for that purpose. The dean countered that the monies in question had been allocated to promote minorities that at that time were politically active and creating an embarrassment for Stanford University. Esther pointed out that this was an unauthorized spending of funds that were specifically designated for women: also a minority. The dean ...
Raymond Wolfinger, a political scientist and professor, once said, "The plural form of anecdote is data." This quote explicably encapsulates what Brooke and I envision for the Lone Star Parity Project. Many times data and facts are presented solely as aggregated numbers, meant to generalize and identify overarching trends. While this remains important, the crux of the solution resides in the anecdotes of the people it affects. Every woman is a piece to the puzzle of politics in Texas, every experience as important as the other in contributing to overall parity. ...
I do. That will be the subject of a long article that Ive been working on for a few days. I hope to have it out in a week or two. As you know, there are no clinical studies on the effectiveness of auditing for relief of any therapeutic symptoms. There was a study done in the late 1950s or early 1960s that showed that auditing delivered exactly zero of the benefits Hubbard claimed for clear (increased IQ, etc.), but thats not really the same thing so I am not going to take a 50-year old study as sufficient to "prove" that auditing is ineffective. This question is the whole reason for the lengthy discussion about anecdote versus evidence. There are many people who have been in Scientology who have reported significant "wins" after auditing, and plenty of reason to believe those wins are genuine positive, significant and permanent life changes that have occurred as a result of auditing. However, positive anecdotes, no matter how many, are not proof that auditing works. You have to consider those ...
Again, I think to anyone who actually has tried to buy a house, sold a house, do anything with a detached home in the last five years they will know who is blowing smoke. But I leave it to the readers to judge. But have you actually said anything new? Your entire thesis is that based on macro stats this market must implode. You have provided nothing more than I have. We are in reality, swatting each other. Difference is I actually am closely in touch with the market, you on the other hand, are not. But thats ok, I could play this game all day long. You still havent provided me an ounce of proof that you are qualified to analyze the market because you dont know who is buying, who is selling, what segment is outperforming, which one is under performing.

The Doctor Is In... As Are the Doritos And now a word from our sponsor... Id just like to comment now on certain outstanding products. Dr. Pepper and Doritos are not only healthy for growing young lads, but they are absolutely vital to building strong bones, increasing your sex drive, and decreasing your risk of syphilis. (If the latter two items cancel each other out, at least youve still got stronger bones.) These are fine, quality products that will suit all your snacking needs! Given, Ive never actually had either of them, but people say theyre good. Now, the more cynical readers are cursing my name for this seemingly blatant selling-out of any morals the Travesty Team once had, followed by a shrill scream of Corporate sponsorship is the devil and then Why do I continuously beat my own crotch?, but I assure you, Im not just telling you this for the money.

Every day, survivors of murder victims have to drag themselves to court and listen to prosecutors, defense attorneys, witnesses and even defendants re-live their worst nightmares. It might not be pleasant, but its a necessary part of what makes the U.S. system of justice what it is. Is it perfect? No. Do guilty people often go free? Absolutely. And in the eyes of a loved one who has just seen a killer acquitted, is it fair? Not at all. Just as its not fair to railroad innocent people into long jail sentences and, possibly, death. They both happen, and, Im afraid, a lot more often than wed all like to think ...
I dont generally criticize the people Ive worked with during my many years in the biz. Its not my style. I find its better to gently mock them from afar, kind of like voodoo of disrespect.

At the time of the hit, the Patriots and Raiders were less than two years removed from one of the most controversial and agonizing post-season losses in Boston-area sports history ... when an all-but-certain victory turned into a defeat when referee Ben Drieth called Ray Hamilton for roughing the passer. Between that, and the overall almost tribal rivalries that sprung when the old AFL merged with the NFL (face it, dont you get just a little more jacked up when those old AFL foes meet?), there resulted an abundance of bad blood between the Patriots and Raiders organizations (this wasnt helped either by a sideline shoving match between Pat Sullivan and Matt Millen in 1986 or the phantom "tuck rule" call in 2002 ...

Transformation is the evolution of an indolent lymphoma/leukemia to an aggressive lymphoma, typically harboring a very poor prognosis. This phenomenon is well described in humans , but under-estimated in dogs although recognized as a possible evolution of indolent lymphomas/leukemias. In canine chronic leukemias blast crisis (mainly in myeloid ) and Richter syndrome (transformation into a high grade lymphoma) (mainly in B-cell lymphocytic leukemia) has been reported. Transformation is a possible event also in canine low grade lymphomas, although rare. The increased knowledge has also generated new questions and posed challenges that need to be addressed to improve outcome, including the recognition of the clinical characteristics at diagnosis associated with a higher risk of transformation in an attempt of anticipating the typical evolution.
Abbasside dynasty. Ibn-,Khalik^n caUs him the champion and asserter of the rights of the AMfOssides to the KhaH/ate, He was not of the house of d-Abb&S) nor do historians seem agreed as to his birth/sonie even maintaining that he was originally a slave of Kurd extraction. Be that as it may, he attached himself to the house of el-Abb&s, and sd great were his talents as a general, that the Khallfah Marw^s troops could make no bead against him, and in A.H. 129 all Max^vdns commandants of fortresses in Kho- rassin were obliged either to taflce an oath of fidelity to Ibrahim, or within a limited time to quit the province. In A.H. 131, Ibrahim, while on his way to perform the pilgrim- age to Mekkah, was seized by the troops of Marw^n, which came up with him near Harr4n, carried him to that city, and confined him in prison, where he soon after died. His brother Abu-Abd-All^, es-Saffi^h, succeeded him, and mainly owing to the exertions and ability of Abu-Muslim, Marw^n and his forces were driven from ...
I was walked about 8 steps to the other laser chair. Same wedge under my legs, but this chair/table had a recessed place to cradle your head. More drops were put in my eyes, Im guessing numbing, they were totally numb the whole time but drops of one sort or another were put in 5-6 times. There was a panel right above me with lots of white/blue lights (tiny ones) on the periphery, a blinking green light in the middle, and kind of a net of tiny red lights that moved around. One eye was taped shut again, the other was taped open with really soft tape, while they inserted something to hold my eye open. This was the part I was most freaked out about, but I could barely see it go in. I was asked to focus on the green light, and the doctor went in and raised the flap out of the way - my vision went instantly blurry and swimmy and I could barely see anything - just light and shape. I was told that the laser would begin firing, and it would make noises, so dont worry, and it would make smells, too, ...

Beginning in the late 1980s, Eric Davidsons group at Cal Tech developed a modularity hypothesis of developmental gene regulation, showing that in an expanding number of cases, particular aspects of development were governed by compact modules of transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs), and that these modules were separable, complex and interconnected. Davidson made no attempt to further generalize the hypothesis, but others took up the idea, transported it out of development and extended it to a general rule of clustering. Despite such misbegotten origins, the extended modularity hypothesis-that TFBSs in general tend to come in compact clusters-has been highly productive, yet it has never been challenged with a large, diverse and unbiased dataset to see how universal it actually is. The aim of the present paper is to do so. Applying human-mouse-rat phylogenetic footprinting to neighbourhoods of a diverse set of TFBSs, including both developmental and non-developmental signals, we find ...
Another fascinating site, as it seems less glib than Urban Dictionary. Im not sure where these anecdotes fit, but they seem to confirm something.. Some 20+ years ago, I worked two stretches of 60 hour weeks at a job I disliked. Afterwards, during my time off, I went back into work anyway because I couldnt settle myself down to do anything at home. Four-and-three-quarter years ago, I finished writing a play that I (still) love, then got summarily sick, literally all over, with a sinus infection, shingles, and another affliction I wont mention except to say that it took six dozen suppositories to calm it the fuck down.. I wouldnt cite their cause as leisure per se, as both episodes came after a big push, so to speak, at work. Ive read similar anecdotes about big time movie directors, who collapse into bed once theyve completed the editing. I think it has to do with being so busy that you go without proper sleep and food. Its like you can be strong as long as you have to be strong, but the ...
Building a Beast. From the L.A. Daily News November 30, 1991, animator Glen Keane was the primary animator on the Beast in Disneys Beauty and the Beast (1991). Traditionally, the Beast had been depicted as a variation of a lion or a bear but Keane felt that "anything could go". His earliest experiments with horns and ears were unsuccessful and made the character look like an alien.. During the pre-production work in England, Keane had to walk through the London Zoo every day on his way to the studio. He began sketching the animals there for inspiration.. "After seeing the way the wolves in the zoo walked and moved, I immediately wanted Beat to be comfortable on all fours which was a big statement," said Keane. "This guy is not just a man with a beasts head on. He is actually, physically, bone structure wise, an animal. I wanted him to be so believable and realistic that I could explain his physical anatomy to each of the animators.". Keanes initial deigns were based on Boris, a large mandrill ...
So recently I read a -very- interesting book entitled We Get Fat: And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes. His theory about weight gain is that caloric surplus is not the correct reason for gaining weight; the problem is that the modern diet includes a surplus of refined carbohydrates, hence the obesity epidemic in America. According to Taubes, losing weight is as simple as a few nutritional modifications in the form of limiting the intake of sugar, cereals, and fruit. Now, dont get me wrong,

Open commenting would result in the drowning of the facts in a deluge of pseudoscience from compensated and/or sociopathic shills such as yourself, "Moderation". The 2011 Vaers reports show vaccines correlated to 25,000 injuries & deaths (3500 serious enough to require medical intervention). The CDC says because VAERS is voluntary these 25,000 adverse events are only a "small fraction" of the true number.. If that "small fraction" is 1-5% the actual association of vaccines to adverse events ranges from 500,000. to 2.5 MILLION. Serious events from 70,000 to 350,000. I am well aware this is correlation, not causation.. Does this prove vaccines are causing the injuries & deaths? No, but this mountain of data is clear justification to do the clinical studies necessary to find the truth. The epidemiology that shills refer to is an inappropriate response to the mountain of epidemiological correlation produced directly & indirectly by VAERS. You dont try to deny correlation established by epidemiology ...
Tuberculosis is a disease that attacks the lungs caused by tuberculosis bacillus. You can clear it by using herbal bitter leaf capsules!
Physicians who spend their lives treating patients have always lived with the social representations of health, disease, and medication. These social representations are construct images of a natural reality and are as old as the disease itself. Based on affective and cognitive predispositions, and often inhabited by fears, beliefs, and magical and supernatural elements, the function of social representations is to make something unusual and unknown familiar to the patient.. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and inhaled medications do not escape these social representation systems. The theory of social representations was first formulated by social psychologist Serge Moscovici in a paper published in France in 1961.1 I wonder, however, if COPD is not itself also represented in doctors who usually treat this complex disease in hospitals or in primary health care, and if their representation is haunted by dogmas and medical beliefs.. In COPD, as in many other chronic diseases, ...
Several epidemiological studies (4-8,16) have reported a higher prevalence of diabetes, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease in various ethnic groups including Native Americans and Canadians. Some studies (9,10) have reported increased levels of inflammatory markers and their association with insulin resistance or percent body fat in Aboriginal versus white populations. However, there are no reports that specifically address markers of insulin resistance and inflammatory markers in Aboriginal women compared with white women.. First Nation women had significantly greater total fat mass than white women and a greater proportion of their adipose mass as trunk fat. Differences in trunk fat explained the difference in insulin resistance observed between First Nation and white women. While there was no significant difference in the slope of the relationship between log HOMA-IR and total body fat in the two groups of women, First Nation women had a significantly higher intercept, indicating ...

The HIV Meds Access Campaign, which The AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) is part of, is asking people living with HIV/AIDS to share their stories about accessing medication and health care services. These personal anecdotes help us creatively and effectively demonstrate to state and federal lawmakers why programs that provide medication and care are critical for people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, these stories generate media attention on the importance of things like ADAP and the Ryan White Care Act.. As you know, were all facing a collective battle at both the state and federal levels when it comes to budget cuts to HIV/AIDS programs. Im hoping that you can take a moment to think of at least one or two people who have a particularly compelling story when it comes to HIV and health care access, and see if they might be willing to share their story with us here. We would also encourage you to forward this message to your network of colleagues and consumers. Please let folks know that we ...
This story of two community colleges tells how they have dealt with the demands for data that state-mandated accountability requires. The story is based on research conducted at a large community college district in California. On the surface, the story might seem straightforward: accountability mandates led to the expansion of the Institutional Research Department, causing the schools to try to replace an outdated Student Information System in order to improve the districts overall access to data. However, the underlying story is more complicated. If it had a headline, it might be one of these: Why cant we get the data we need? A new system? What system? Is access to data really that important? This story looks at the community college district on multiple levels, weaving together anecdotes and experiences along with the underlying themes and tensions. It is an attempt to look at one component of the educational environment -- the one that links state policy-makers to the schools they oversee --
Will Tweedy was 14 years old and living in Cold Sassy, Georgia, in the summer of 1906 when his grandpa came home one day to announce he was marrying a woman half his age, not three weeks after the death of his first wife, Wills grandmother. The town, of course, is scandalized, and continues to be so as the story wears on. This is more of a "slice of life" depiction than much of a story - the author starts with a setting (the town of Cold Sassy) and a premise (Grandpas new bride), and meanders through clever little anecdotes and asides for a while until the author decides its time to end the story and starts killing off characters. This is not a bad story, just a fairly standard one. I dont have very strong feelings about it either way. The constant backcountry dialect got kind of old, but I feel that way about all books narrated in dialect so thats not exactly serious criticism. On the other hand, I could hear all the characters in my head with no problem. In the end, if you like this era ...
Since school counselors have large numbers of letters to write, it is easy for the quality of our letters to diminish. Therefore, it is important that we provide appropriate content and keep the interest of our audience. Also, we need to know how to tell our students stories. While teachers can tell the academic story of a student, our narrative should be about student growth. In addition to addressing growth, school counselors should point out students strengths and qualities. Examples can include past achievements, potential for growth, and commitment to the school community. Rather than chronologically listing a students resume (uh hum), highlighting a students involvement in community service, participation in sports, leadership ability, and passion for a particular subject can speak volumes! Another important point that colleges and scholarship committees look for is your relationship with that student. Speaking about a specific anecdote can show the committee that you really know this ...
Barbara Sansone and Jordi Salvadò: Can you tell us some anecdotes from your journey, something special that happened, some special encounter?. Cristian Bettini: There are many stories that stuck in my mind. In the Asturias I really liked the story from the past century of an Italian who went to live there to be a whale hunter. Yes, up until the past century there were whales in the Biscaglia gulf! It was also really nice to cross the mine areas, where theres a really important piece of history from the Spanish revolution, where the people are still generous and genuine. Say a person stops and sees you, they then go to the baker and get some bread for you. If you ask someone for directions, theyll invite you into their home.
