The bill would allow federal officials to take these steps based on suspicions only, without having to demonstrate to any judicial official that there is solid evidence to justify their actions. No reasonable proof will any longer be required for the government to suspend an American citizen’s constitutional rights. Detentions can follow mere membership, past or present, in “suspect organizations.” Government agents would have unchecked authority to arrest, interrogate, and indefinitely detain law-abiding citizens if accused of potentially posing a threat to “national security.” Further, military personnel anywhere in the world would be authorized to seize U.S. citizens without due process. As Senator Lindsay Graham put it, under this Act the U.S. homeland is considered a “battlefield.”

Heine, histoire de la religion et de la philosophie en Allemagne (Les apports de MBK) - [FR-DE-EN] | offene Ablage: nothing to hide | oAnth-miscellaneous | Scoop.it

(oAnth: the chosen quotes give a good insight of Heine's stringent analytical - towards Hegel orientated - romanticism, which results in a competent nevertheless highly ironic approach to Schelling's transcendental philosophy.)

 

[...]

 

Ce que je suggère ici permet de comprendre que dans la partie de sa philosophie qui n'est qu'idéalisme transcendental, Monsieur Schelling 'nest resté et ne pouvait rester qu'un psalmodieur de la parole de Fichte, mais que dans la philosophie de la nature, où il avait à besogner parmi les fleurs et les étoiles, il n pouvait que fleurir et rayonner magnifiquement. C'est pourquoi aussi c'est cette direction qui a été prise de préférence, non seulement par lui, mais tous les amis de même inspiration, et et le tumulte, qui se fit jour alors n'était en quelque sorte qu'un réaction poétaillonique à l'abstraite philosophie de l'esprit qui avait cours avant eux. Tels des potachez libérés après avoir dû passer toute la journée à gémir dans les salles étriquées sous la charge accablante des voyelles et des chiffres, les élèves de Monsieur Schelling se sont précipités dans la nature, dans le réel ensoleillé et plein d'odeurs, en criant leur joie à tue-tête, en faisant des galipettes et tout un joyeux tapage. (p.193-194)

 

"Monsieur Schelling ne pouvait plus loin que Spinoza sur le chemin de la philosophie, étant donné que l'Absolu n'est concevable que sous la forme de ces deux atributs, la pensée et l'étendue. Mais Monsieur Schelling abanadonne maintenant la voie philosophique pour tenter de parvenir à la contemplation de l'absolu par une espère d'intuition mystique, il tente de le contempler en son centre, en son essentialité, là où il n'est ni quelque chose d'idéel, ni quelque chose de réel, ni pensée, ni étendue, ni sujet, ni objet, ni esprit, ni matière, mais au contraire...qu'est ce que j'en sais!

 

Ici s'arrête la philosophie chez Monsieur Schelling et commence la poésie, je veux dire, la folie." (p.197)

--------------------------

 

Some of the iconic winter landscapes by Pieter Bruegel the Elder are more than just fine examples of sixteenth-century Dutch art. Paintings such as Bruegel’s Hunters in the Snow (1565) also serve as vivid evidence for the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period of cold climate conditions and glacier advances in Europe and elsewhere that lasted from the late Middle Ages until the nineteenth century.

 

There has been quite some debate over the years about the precise onset and the physical causes of this extended cold spell, with one school of thought favouring low solar activity during the ‘Maunder Minimum’ and another the cooling effect of big volcanic eruptions.

 

A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters may put the solar-trigger hypothesis at rest. Gifford Miller of the University of Colorado in Boulder and his colleagues suggest that the Little Ice Age began abruptly between 1275 and 1300 AD following four large sulfur-rich explosive eruptions, most likely in the tropics, over a mere 50-year period.

English is the dominant language of the Internet, business, and world trade. Do we need another? This column applies an economist’s rationale to the question.

 

 

// oAnth:

 

[...]

 

Worldwide, English is indeed the language that is most often used in international contacts and trade. But it is not the only one, as shown by Jacques Melitz (2008) who uses two measures of linguistic distances between trading partners and tries to estimate their effect. ‘Open-circuit communication’ (OCC) demands that the language be either official or widely spoken (at least 20% of the population knows the language). Spanish, for instance, will be an OCC between Bolivia (where 44% of the population knows Spanish) and Mexico (88%). A ‘direct communication’ (DC) language is any language common (that is, spoken by at least 4% in each country) in a pair of countries. In short, Melitz suggests distinguishing between two channels through which the trade-enhancing effect may take place: OCCs that depend on translation (which can be produced as long as there are enough people who can provide it in both countries) and DCs (which enable traders to communicate directly). He finds that ‘direct communication’ has the largest positive effect on trades: A 10% increase in the probability that two citizens, one in country A, the other in B, speak the same language increases their trades by 10%. Other European OCCs also contribute, but somewhat less. However, and interestingly enough, Melitz also shows that English as an OCC is no more effective than other European languages in promoting trade.

The explosion of open education content resources and freely available collaboration and media production platforms represents one of the most exciting emerging trends in education. These tools create unprecedented opportunities for teachers to design and personalize curriculum and to give students opportunities to collaborate, publish, and take responsibility for their own learning. Many education technology and open education advocates hope that the widespread availability of free resources and platforms will disproportionately benefit disadvantaged students, by making technology resources broadly available that were once only available to affluent students. It is possible, however, that affluent schools and students have a greater capacity to take up new innovations, even free ones, and so new tools and resources that appear in the ecology of education will widen rather than ameliorate digital divides. In this presentation, we will examine evidence for both the "tech as equalizer" and "tech as accelerator of digital divides" hypotheses, and we will examine technology innovations and interventions that specifically target learners with the most needs. A lively discussion will follow to consider how educators, technologists, and policymakers can address issues of educational digital inequalities in their work. [...]

ARL Releases Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) announces the release of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, a clear and easy-to-use statement of fair and reasonable approaches to fair use developed by and for librarians who support academic inquiry and higher education. The Code was developed in partnership with the Center for Social Media and the Washington College of Law at American University. Winston Tabb, Johns Hopkins University Dean of University Libraries and Museums and President of ARL, said, “This document is a testament to the collective wisdom of academic and research librarians, who have asserted careful and considered approaches to some very difficult situations that we all face every day.”

This is the moment academic publishers gave up all pretence of being on the side of scientists. Their rhetoric has traditionally been of partnering with scientists, but the truth is that for some time now scientific publishers have been anti-science and anti-publication. The Research Works Act, introduced in the US Congress on 16 December, amounts to a declaration of war by the publishers.

 

The USA's main funding agency for health-related research is the National Institutes of Health, with a $30bn annual budget. The NIH has a public access policy that says taxpayer-funded research must be freely accessible online. This means that members of the public, having paid once to have the research done, don't have to pay for it again when they read it – a wholly reasonable policy, and one with enormous humanitarian implications because it means the results of medical research are made freely available around the world.

 

A similar policy is now being adopted in the UK. On page 76 of the policy document Innovation and Research Strategy for Growth the government states that it is "committed to ensuring that publicly funded research should be accessible free of charge". All of this is great for the progress of science, which has always been based on the free flow of ideas, the sharing of data, and standing on the shoulders of giants.

 

But what's good for science isn't necessarily good for science publishers, whose interests have drifted far out of alignment with ours. Under the old model, publishers become the owners of the papers they publish, holding the copyright and selling copies around the world – a useful service in pre-internet days. But now that it's a trivial undertaking to make a paper globally available, there is no reason why scientists need yield copyright to publishers.

KarriereSPIEGEL: Wie müsste so eine Reform aussehen?

 

Sattelberger: Es geht nicht nur um inhaltliche Reform in Forschung und Lehre, sondern auch beim Personal sowie in Führung und Steuerung einer Schule. Dazu gehört beispielsweise die Frage, ob Professoren zwar ausgezeichnete Fachleute sind, aber mit unmoralischen Handlungskonzepten hantieren, ob Fakultätsmitglieder wie streunende Katzen auf der Suche nach lukrativen Beratungsaufträgen sind. Die Finanzkrise hat ja aufgezeigt, welche inzestuösen Vernetzungen es zwischen Investmentbanken und Professoren führender US-Schulen gab, die auf der Gehaltsliste von Banken standen. Es geht auch darum, nach welchen Kriterien Professoren rekrutiert und befördert werden - spielen da Charakter und soziale Kompetenz auch eine Rolle, oder zählen nur die theoretischen Veröffentlichungen in erstklassigen Journalen? Gibt es einen Code of Conduct, einen Verhaltenskodex? Und hat die Schule einen funktionierenden Beirat? Oft sind Beiräte keine Kontrolleure, sondern werden nur als Geldbeschaffer und Aushängeschilder für die Schule instrumentalisiert. Institutionelle Reformen halte ich für wesentlich schwieriger und wichtiger als die inhaltlich-fachliche Reform.

On the Syrian Crisis (Syria Comment & The Real News) | offene Ablage: nothing to hide

On the Syrian Crisis (Syria Comment & The Real News) | offene Ablage: nothing to hide | oAnth-miscellaneous | Scoop.it

a) Where In The Tunnel Are We? – By Ehsani | Syria comment - 2012-01-31

 

Why is the Syrian opposition so divided? Here are some of the main divisions running through Syrian society:

 

Sunni versus Alawi
Poor versus rich
Rural versus urban
Homs and Hama versus Aleppo and Damascus
Baathists versus Non-Baathists
Religious versus Secular
Saudi Arabia versus Iran
USA versus Russia

 

Welcome to the cocktail of the new Syrian revolution.

 

I returned home to Syria two weeks ago. Many of my friends were surprised that I would make the long trip at this time of gathering war.

For two weeks, I traveled (flew) between Aleppo and Damascus. I talked to rich and poor: bankers, taxi drivers, young protestors from Idlib, rank and file army soldiers stationed in Homs, senior Alawi officers, Christian and tribal Sunni families. I did my best to get a comprehensive view of what people were thinking and how they saw the future.

In what follows, I will present a raw interview-type account of three different encounters that I had. Two were with Taxi drivers. One with a soldier. Even though I had my own car and someone to drive me around, I preferred the taxis to get a better feel.

On Sunday January 22, Barbara Bleisch interviews Professor Axel Honneth in "Schweizer Fernsehen" (SF)

 

"Axel Honneth: Der Kampf um Anerkennung"

 

Der Frankfurter Philosoph Axel Honneth ist einer der wichtigsten lebenden Vertreter der Kritischen Theorie, die in den 1930er Jahren von Horkheimer und Adorno begründet wurde. Während die Kritische Theorie unter dem Eindruck des Nationalsozialismus ein düsteres Bild der Zukunft zeichnete, ist Axel Honneth zuversichtlicher. In seinem neusten Buch «Das Recht der Freiheit» behauptet er gar, unsere Welt werde immer gerechter, da die Menschen nicht müde werden, Unrecht anzuprangern und Anerkennung einzufordern. Der Kampf um Anerkennung wird damit für Honneth zum ethischen Fortschrittsmotor – er verändert unser politisches System, unsere Arbeitswelten und letztlich auch unsere Liebesbeziehungen zum Guten hin.

Buchrezension: Die Aristotelische Mitte - "...Was aber versteht man unter einer goldenen Mitte? ..." | Telepolis2012-01-28 - offene Ablage: nothing to hide | oAnth-miscellaneous | Scoop.it

Was aber versteht man unter einer goldenen Mitte? Nun, die goldene Mitte impliziert zwar einen Kompromiss, aber es handelt sich deswegen keineswegs um ein Mittelmaß.

 

Vielmehr symbolisiert die goldene Mitte als besondere Form das Beste; ein Optimum, welches sich durch Vielseitigkeit auszeichnet und gerade dadurch eine Komplexitätssteigerung erreicht. Dieses althergebrachte Paradigma der goldenen Mitte ist der Dreh- und Angelpunkt der Aristotelischen Philosophie. Hinter dem Paradigma der Aristotelischen Mitte verbirgt sich schließlich - und das ist eine wichtige Erkenntnis meiner Untersuchung - ein syllogistisch organisierter Entwicklungsgedanke, in dem jeder Prozess - und dazu zählt natürlich auch der Erkenntnisprozess - als Prozess der Mitte erscheint.

 

Der rote Faden ist dann insofern aufzufinden, als man auf die zur Mitte hin gerichteten Strukturen achtet, welche das gesamte Werk dialektisch organisieren. Aristoteles geht ja von einem Kontinuum aus, welches durch eine Dreigliedrigkeit des Ganzen gekennzeichnet ist, und zwar dergestalt, dass die jeweils gegenüberliegenden Pole stets durch eine Mitte im Sinne eines tertium comparationis verbunden sind.

 

Um den Aufbau der Aristotelischen Philosophie erfassen zu können, müssen wir uns natürlich zunächst die Frage stellen: Was hat Aristoteles mit seiner wissenschaftlichen Vorgehensweise eigentlich untersucht? Die Antwort darauf ist im Grunde genommen recht einfach: Das Hauptthema der Aristotelischen Philosophie ist ohne Zweifel die Bewegung. Allerdings müssen wir uns an dieser Stelle vergegenwärtigen, dass mit dem griechischen Begriff Bewegung nicht nur eine einfache Ortsbewegung gemeint ist, sondern Bewegung in einem umfassenden Sinne.

 

Genauer gesagt, es geht um die systematische Analyse ganz unterschiedlicher Bewegungsformen, um Prozesse respektive Entwicklungen. Meiner Meinung nach hat diesen Sachverhalt besonders gut der klassische Philologe Martin Hose erfasst, der das Aristotelische System als eine Bewegungsphysik auf allen Ebenen des Seins umschreibt.

 

Es handelt sich also um ein gigantisches interdisziplinäres Forschungsprojekt. Daraus ergibt sich bereits folgender wichtige Zusammenhang: Aristoteles beschäftigt sich mit dem gesamten Sein im Sinne einer Unendlichkeit, welche er als ein Kontinuum mit medialen Strukturen erfasst. Es wäre daher schon ein schwieriges Vorhaben, die Gedanken des Aristoteles erklären zu wollen, ohne dabei die darin angelegten medialen Strukturen zu berücksichtigen.

Auf dem 28C3 warnte Cory Doctorow in seinem Vortrag vor dem "kommenden Krieg gegen universelle Computer" (deutsche Transkription von Christian Wöhrl). Nach Doctorows Ansicht besteht ein massives wirtschaftliches Interesse daran, universelle Computer, die jede beliebige Software ausführen können, abzuschaffen – so, wie sich derzeit die Unterhaltungsindustrie Computer wünscht, auf denen man Filme, Musik, Bücher und Zeitschriften zwar konsumieren, aber nicht kopieren und weitergeben kann. Angesichts der fortschreitenden Computerisierung aller Lebensbereiche, spekuliert der Blogger, sei der derzeitige Kampf ums Copyright nur der Beginn einer langen Auseinandersetzung um universelle Computer.

Die aktuellen Entwicklungen, die sich im Kontext der Einführung von Windows 8 und der UEFI-Funktion Secure Boot im PC-Markt abzeichnen, lassen diese Befürchtungen durchaus berechtigt erscheinen. Mit Secure Boot, für ARM-Rechner mit Windows 8 verbindlich vorgeschrieben und auch für die x86-Welt auf der Agenda, könnte die Zeit zu Ende gehen, wo der Eigentümer eines PC selbst entscheiden kann, welches Betriebssystem und welche Software er auf seinem Rechner laufen lässt.

Recueil organisé d’articles qui met en lumière la façon dont l’Antiquité méditerranéenne a perçu le judaïsme et comment ce dernier s’y est intégré. Parmi les différentes enquêtes que mène l’auteur, la première cible les premières représentations que les Grecs se font des Juifs. C’est à la fin du IVème siècle avant notre ère qu’on trouve trace d’une rencontre entre les Juifs et les Grecs. La première désignation qu’utilisent les Grecs pour parler les Juifs est celle de " peuple de philosophes nés " - qui donne son titre à l’ouvrage. Cette première mention des Juifs chez un Grec, en l’occurrence Théophraste, dérive du fait que cet auteur met au centre de ce qu’il connaît du judaïsme leur monothéisme...
