Why Creativity, Why Now?, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Jan 2012

Why Creativity, Why Now?, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

In 2006 the Association of American Colleges and Universities surveyed 306 businesses to determine the most valuable skills that institutions of higher learning should be teaching, and the Top Three were (in order) teamwork, critical thinking, and communication. Yet in 2010 when IBM’s Institute for Business Values asked 1500 chief executives what leadership competency they championed above all others, voters selected none of the winners from three years before. Instead, the new American idol was creativity.


Bloody Ground: Stories Of Mystery And Intrigue From Kentucky, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

Bloody Ground: Stories Of Mystery And Intrigue From Kentucky, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

In the 1770's before Daniel Boone finally settled at Boonesborough, he made many forays into "Cantucke," mentally mapping the territory, taking what game he could, and establishing relationships with the Shawnee and settlers. He started with a curiosity about a land he knew little of and ended up becoming its most famous inhabitant. In the 1970's in Richmond, about ten miles from Boone's fort, we sat down in a booth at a local McDonald's and started writing--short stories, plays, novels, magazine columns, newspaper articles, and academic papers. One of us was a native Kentuckian and the ...

Entropy In Pynchon's "Entropy" And Lefebvre's The Production Of Space, Jason Snart Nov 2001

Entropy In Pynchon's "Entropy" And Lefebvre's The Production Of Space, Jason Snart

Jason A Snart

In his paper, "Entropy in Pynchon's 'Entropy' and Lefebvre's The Production of Space," Jason Snart examines Thomas Pynchon's short story "Entropy" for the ways in which it deals with the kinds of disorder(s) associated with entropy as a thermodynamic and informational concept. Those concepts are installed as a framework within which to consider cultural studies work like Henri Lefebfre's thought in his The Production of Space and Ludwig von Bertalanffy's general systems theory and themodynamics: disorder is rendered not as confusion, but rather as a state of potential energy and productivity and Lefebvre's ...

Concealed Pseudo-Clefts, Ileana Paul Sep 2001

Concealed Pseudo-Clefts, Ileana Paul

Ileana Paul

This paper argues for a pseudo-cleft analysis of so-called clefts in Malagasy. Evidence is presented that the clefted element is in fact the matrix (copular) predicate and that the pre-suppositional clause is a headless relative in subject position. The proposed pseudo-cleft structure accounts for the focus interpretation of this construction, due to the underlying presence of a definite description in the subject position.

Supererogatory Superluminality, Bradley Monton, Brian Kierland May 2001

Supererogatory Superluminality, Bradley Monton, Brian Kierland

Brian Kierland

We argue that any superluminal theory T is empirically equivalent to a nonsuperluminal theory T, with the following constraints on T: T preserves the spacetime intervals between events as entailed by T , T is naturalistic (as long as T is), and all the events which have causes according to T also have causes according to T. Tim Maudlin (1996) defines standard interpretations of quantum mechanics as interpretations ‘according to which there was a unique set of outcomes in Aspect’s laboratory, which outcomes occurred at spacelike separation’, and Maudlin claims that standard interpretations must be non-local in the sense that ...
