Unflattening

Nick Sousanis’ *Unflattening* (Harvard University Press, 2015) is scholarship presented as a comic. By combining examples from a variety of disciplines–science, literature, mathematics, art, and more–from antiquity to the present day, Sousanis argues against the type of flatness exemplified by the two dimensional characters in Edwin A. Abbott’s *Flatland* (1884) who cannot understand the concept of “upward.” In a very accessible book, Sousanis encourages readers to see past their own boundaries. The book is particularly relevant to both educators and students.

    2. Yeah, but the other strange thing is why the "conservative movement" based in DC hates all unions with such a vengeance.I think it once again shows how totally the "money people" (who dislike unions for obvious reasons) control the conservative apparatchiks.Really stupid and weird.

    3. What a beautiful card Vicki! I love that glittery butterfly! Two of my favourite things rolled into one! I do love those soft colours as well! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

    4. Dear Lao, Actually, the Cuban ambassador thanked him at the time for his service in keeping a lot of annoyed folk reined in. His presence was pounced on by 9very) interested parties and the party becaem that he was leading the charge, as it were. As usual, facts are the first casualty. Someone here must remember why it was exactly that he did jail time; was it trumped up in the wake this episode?

    6. Thanks Jason! We knew it would be a hard decision and so far, we are glad we made it. I think this approach will give us plenty of accountability. I mean, if we mess up, the readers are going to tell us about it!I look forward to continuing to write for Frugal Dad and sharing our journey with your wonderful readers as well.

  3. ogging, mining, and other resource extraction-dependent communities across the globe have experienced fluctuations in their standards of living (Harris et al., 1998). Many of these communities, having lost their primary source of income and industry due to tightened restrictions and a general transition in the status quo for resource extraction industries, also have diminished resident population sizes. In some cases, otherwise vibrant and healthy towns and cities have all but disappeared. In other cases, communities have exploded from the establishment of a lucrative resource extraction industry, although recent examples of this are few compared to historical trends (Humphries, et al. 2012)

  6. le of comforting her by giving her hope about her brother. He goes on to agree to help her with her disguise and keep her valuable secret after only knowing her for such a short period of time. It seems almost like Violas emotional state and damsel in distress attitude paved the way for a random handout from someone who barley knows her. However, I guess we could argue that people may just be nice. Although The Duke (Orsino) doesn’t have to be and yet is.

    Viola and Orsino hit it off right away—shocker. Viola knows exactly how to play it. She is submissive and available to Orsino. She tells him that she is waiting at his service and throughout their conversation only refers to him so far as “lord” (Act1. Scene 4). She alludes herself to be viewed as having the full package without the package of course (hahaha). She listens attentively to the Duke and asks follow up questions for his request. She is confident but modest. Later in scene four, she feels comfortable enough to challenging Orsinos views on love. She tries to get him to imagine being in Olivia’s shoes (lines 87-90). When the Duke responds with a confident counter argument about how specific a man’s love can be, brave and articulate Cesario/ Viola enlightens him about the way women love men. Orsino doesn’t really take her advice but he has enough respect and fondness of Cesari

Cette chanson est à la base la chanson des partisans anti-fascistes et républicains Italiens qui, durant la 2nd guerre mondiale, avait pour but de chasser Benito Mussolini (dictateur fasciste italien, ami d’Hitler) et les fascistes… Je pense qu’ils auraient dû garder les paroles d’origine et ne pas en rajouter en français, ça aurait été un bel hommage pour les partisans “morts pour la liberté”
