Relationships And Universal Energy Laws, Carroy U. Ferguson Dec 1999

Relationships And Universal Energy Laws, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

Relationships are our most intense forms of "mirrors" in the world. They show us in direct and indirect ways how we are using our personal energy systems in what I call our three life spaces. They show us how we consciously and unconsciously employ what some authors have called Universal Energy Laws (see attached descriptions of these laws) to co-create the quality of our relationships. Whether or not we "attract" and/or deal with relationships in conscious or subconscious ways, what I call the "mirror effect" is reflected in our three life spaces—personal life space, societal life space, and ...

Yugoslavian Villagers, Joel Halpern Dec 1999

Yugoslavian Villagers, Joel Halpern

Joel M. Halpern

In 1918 the different writing systems, languages, religions, and nationalities were joined into a single country-Yugoslavia. And the country was divided into six official republics that are something like the states of the United States. The people, however, continued to write, speak, go to church, and follow customs in their own special ways. So there is no such thing as a "typical " Yugoslavian. However, more than half the people of Yugoslavia have at least one thing in common. They live in the country rather than in the city .


Silicon Valley Reinvents The Company Town, Jan English-Lueck Dec 1999

Silicon Valley Reinvents The Company Town, Jan English-Lueck

Jan English-Lueck

California's Silicon Valley, famous for its innovative high-technology corporations, makes an ideal laboratory for exploring certain cultural inventions. It is a bellwether for a particular kind of social order—one dominated by work. In anthropology we encounter many frameworks through which life is organized—kinship, religion, and politics. Work is another lens through which life can be filtered. People may move to California for the weather, but they go to Silicon Valley to work. High-technology work draws on a global pool of talent and shifting skills that creates a culturally complex community. Migrants to Silicon Valley bring and enact ...

Evidence For Prehistoric Maize Horticulture At The Pine Hill Site, Deerfield, Massachusetts, Elizabeth Chilton, Largy B. Tonya, Kathryn Curran Dec 1999

Evidence For Prehistoric Maize Horticulture At The Pine Hill Site, Deerfield, Massachusetts, Elizabeth Chilton, Largy B. Tonya, Kathryn Curran

Elizabeth S. Chilton

The degree of reliance on maize horticulture by New England Algonquians during the Late Woodland Period (ad 1000–1600) is a subject of debate among archaeologists in the region. Archaeological evidence from the Pine Hill site (19FR17), Deerfield, Massachusetts, indicates that while maize was apparently stored by native peoples in subterranean pits, it was not necessarily a staple food; there is, in fact, more evidence to suggest that maize was a dietary supplement in the middle Connecticut Valley (Massachusetts portion) during the Late Woodland period. Evidence from the Pine Hill site and other sites underscores the need for attention to ...
