    On Latessa's noon lecture

    I was so happy to see all the people from my office where I work. At least 25 people from Lake County Adult Probation represented, and of them, my whole unit from D.U.I., including my boss! I wanted to say how fascinated I was by Dr. Latessa. His theory about getting away from only focusing on getting the client into school or into a job, and focusing more on cognitive skills, thinking, really gave me a new perspective. Even being an intern/volunteer, my boss treats me like I'm an officer. So to my clients I'm not a volunteer, I'm their officer and its hard to know what to do next when your options to help them start running out. Dr. Latessa gave us so many good ideas, and new ways to approach stuff. I know my boss was going to try to talk to him personally after the lecture, I let you know what she thought.

    nicole -- thank you for the feedback!

    On the "Racial Preference Licensing Act"

    I really couldn't believe the article we talked about in class. I understand that the whole thing was never real, but I can't understand why some one would even think about selling the ability to discriminate.

    amy -- Derrick Bell describes the RPLA as "racial realism." If other policies and laws have not worked, then why not?

    On the "Racial Preference Licensing Act"

    I must say that I really enjoyed today's class and the disscussion on the racial preference licensing act. It got me as well as the class thinking about such cases and racism. Although I may only agree very slightly with the issue, it is a very interesting way to approach our racism problem. I think the act is almost the opposite of peacemaking criminology because we are seperating people and not bringing them together to solve the dillemma.

    stephen -- that's an interesting comparison with peacemaking crim!

    ...I would also like to say that I really enjoyed Dr. Latessa's lectures, I especially like his style, making it interesting.

    christina -- i'm glad you enjoyed his talk today.

    On the "tyranny of choices"

    I finally read "tyranny of choice". it says that there is a decrease of 5% to the question, 'are you very happy.' why is this? with all we have nowadays, and all the "choices" we have, why aren't ppl as happy anymore?

    nick - i'm glad that you read this article and i've been meaning to bring it up in class. the problem is way too many choices. and according to the author, when our choices don't work out, we feel worse. does that make sense?

    From CRMJ 490: Media, Crime & Criminal Justice

    Bill Kohler wrote on Friday, March 5th:
    On "Reducing Recidivism"

    In reguards to the reducing recidivism, I found the guest speaker to be very accurate on his data. I agree with his ideas of changing criminals values, beliefs, and cognative thinking. People need to change what they value in order to change their thought process on crime. And like he said, most criminal minds seem to be short term and they think of the imidate satisfaction. The information on the NCAA research was great when he breached the link between the thought process of a criminal and that of a cheating college athlete.

    bill -- how does his lecture relate to individual perceptions? to the social construction of reality? to the media construction of reality? why.
