Topic of the Week:
Maybe Red Dog's a Guelph, Hmmm???
Red Dog and I are going to have to quit meeting like this, at Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Center. Everybody there knows us! A nurse in the operating room said "Oh, I remember you. Nice to have you back!" Of course, Red Dog and Arnold of the Red Hair are a part of the recognition process.
You know, I've always been scared to go to doctors or dentists; it's just not a warm, welcoming experience. But this has been so different! People are so nice you want to stay and have a cup of coffee with them. They offer you hospital gowns that you don't have to untie - they unsnap at the shoulder, so even in surgery, you don't feel stripped of your identity.
They wheel me right into the operation room with Red Dog at my side. They don't take him away while I'm conscious. And I wake up to find him back under my arm, just where I left him. What a wonderful, caring place, though I would go for just visiting them with no more surgery.
I don't know how they did it, but I think they've discovered Guelphs, just like we have. Maybe there is hope that this will become a Guelph World. Of course, Red Dog's holding onto Leo Buscaglia's Love. Maybe that is the answer. But, however they managed it, Red Dog and I don't dread going there. That's quite a compliment in today's health care system.
love and peace, jeanne
NEWS, Announcements, and
Current Discussion Topics:
- New Yahoo Group: Transparent Learning Measurement
Discussion of concepts and issues from lectures on social justice, contextual perception of one's own world and the self that interacts with that world, logical and analytical interpretation of writings on these issues, and leadership and management in the helping professions. In this group students and faculty interact cooperatively to prepare each student's written response, submitted as a learning record for their shared studies.
Sorry, I forgot about this. We'll see if it's working out later this week. jeanne

- Student Research Day at CSUDH Since we are preparing projects continually for presentation and sharing, you should consider taking part in this. Abstracts are due by September 30, so you should let me know as soon as possible that you'd like to take part.
Wisconsin you're welcome to take part, too, but I don't think the CSUDH people will understand Wisconsin's presence, and we're too far away for you to make the presentations. But you could submit for a local criminal justice presentation and still share in preparation with us. jeanne

Famous People and Concepts We Should Have Heard Of, But Often Haven't.
- John G. Roberts - Nominee for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
John G. Roberts, Jr.: Biography Washington Post Site.
- Alfie Kohn - still needs some revision, jeanne
- Names to Know when Reading about Postmodernism, Postmodern Therapies, or PMTH Good quick reference list.
- ipse dixit - legal term, Latin, meaning "just because one says so"
- [Stare decisis]is a maxim among ... lawyers, that whatever has been done before may legally be done again: and therefore they take special care to record all the decisions formerly made against common justice and the general reason of mankind. ó Jonathan Swift, Gulliverís Travels.
- institutional discrimination - discrimination that is not directed by a specific individual to another specific individual, but results from the geographic or cultural groupings of the social perimeter under study
- testing - testing generally means paper and pencil testing, done in a classroom, where students are crammed together and carefully watched for fear they will CHEAT! There is an unstated assumption here that students would prefer to cheat over learning. There is an unstated assumption that it is reasonable to "test" or "measure learning" in a group situation that would foster cheating. Holy Toledo!
- unstated assumptions - things we just take for granted, like that "everybody knows" something that actually nobody knows. See examples above and see Chapter 1, Sociology of Law by jeanne and Susan.
