1 Corinthians 15.12-20 Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and […]

In a previous post, I described how researchers might go about tackling the question of how humans understand ambiguous language. The basic idea was to first identify potential sources of disambiguating information, then ask whether humans actually use this information to understand ambiguous language. But what constitutes a “potential” source of disambiguating information? The short […]

The Politics of Economics – “local globalisation” At a broader level, they say, we are all part of one ecosystem and inextricably linked to each other, globally. However, not all are able to break it down into how we are impacted on a daily basis by events far away in another hemisphere or time zone. […]

Kingdom Hearts has a lot of crossovers from Final Fantasy and Disney but one it’s best parts is the original villains. As a kid I always got confused when it came to the Organization XIII members and who they were. I believe that they are the primary source of the convolutedness of Kingdom Hearts’ story. […]

Interiorized Subjectivity in Simulations Interiorized Subjectivity, as described on the “Lexicon” handout means the sense of having an identity that resides inside oneself. This has always been an interesting topic of discussion for me particularly, due to my ongoing obsession with conspiracy theories. Before I dive right into it, I chose this part of the […]

The part of the image that I chose to analyze is part of the right side of the border. The term that I chose to relate this to is representation. Representation, as defined by the Writing Machines Lexicon, is “a practice that creates a symbol standing for another symbol, object, or behavior.” The reason I […]

When I look at this particular portion of the image from “The Secret of Kells,” it relates to a couple different terms in the “Lexicon.” This portion of the image would not tell you specifically just by looking at it where it came from. If you did not see the original from where this image […]

For this week’s blog post I decided to focus on the term ‘simulation’. The definition of simulation according to the Lexicon handout is “an environment, behavior, and/or actor created by artificial means, usually computers”. The whole entire film of The Secret of Kells had to be made up through simulation. Simulations goal is to make […]

The word from Hayles’s Lexicon I used to describe this photo is Interiorized Subjectivity. This is defined as the sense of having an identity that resides inside oneself. I feel that Aisling knows herself very well and is not easily influenced. In the film she shows who she is while showing Brayden her forest. I […]

I chose to use this picture of Aisling because of what she represents. Aisling is a fictional creature. She is fairy-like with different magical powers and abilities. She changes forms, but is mainly between wolf and girl. She lives alone in the woods until Brendan finds her and she ends up helping him. While watching […]

For this weeks blog post I decided to focus on the word “simulacrum.” A simulacrum, based on the provided Lexicon for writing machines, is defined as a copy without an original. There are three different orders that simulacrum can be categorized as; First order, second order, and third order. The first order of simulacrum can […]

ENGL 231 SP 19

The term I decided to focus on for this week’s assignment is simulacrum. Simulacrum is defined in Hayles’s Lexicon as “a copy without an original” where “there is no one original to which the copy corresponds.” By having a copy without the original changes the scale, pace, and pattern’s of our lives because it allows […]

This week we talked about Writing Machines by Katherine Hayles. This book explains a lot about how technology and media correspond with humans. Hayles used a special kind of lexicon in her writing. One word that stuck out to me the most was the word medial ecology. Medial Ecology is the relationships between all the […]

Source: https://www.quranaloneislam.net/4-34-beat-your-wife All you need is listen to your heart to know that beating your wife is inexcusable. Verse 4:34 of the Holy Quran has been extremely controversial, and rightly so, due to the fact that most Sunni scholars claim, under the influence of hadiths and sunna, that beating your wife is permissible under the […]

Alright, this is gonna be a long one so I’ll label the Parts of it up front. I’m just going to cover Nascar because that’s the most prominent in the US. I also find it more interesting than F1. It just feels so much more American. Also, it seems more doable than F1 racing as […]
