As a student of both philosophy and medicine, I see two very different teaching strategies on a daily basis.
Happy Halloween everyone! Today's Music Monday is brought to you by Slayer. I'm not sure why but they are one of the bands that seems most halloweenic to me...? I'm also not sure if halloweenic is a word.
I stood in front of a large man in a suit; someone I’d known my whole life (as far as I could remember). With my mom standing next to me, he asked the question, “Would you like to accept Jesus as your lord and savior?” Not wanting to disappoint either, I said “yes”. I was about 4 years old. I didn’t understand what I was agreeing to and it certainly wasn’t an option to say “no”. This is one of my earliest memories as a child growing up in the small town of Bastrop, Louisiana, and the initiation of my indoctrination into the Christian faith.
Last night a group of UNIFI members attended a talk by Chris Moon where he laid out his personal history with the paranormal, and talked about his exploits while "investigating" paranormal phenomena. Stef already did a very good job of describing the basic outline of the talk, so I'll try not to repeat much of what she said. Moon himself claims to be not only a paranormal investigator, but a psychic medium. For someone peddling pseudoscience and nonsense, he's admittedly charming, and quite a good speaker.
The perspective offered in this piece comes from my education as an Environment and Business student. In a sentence: Environment and Business focuses on teaching students to find business solutions to the issue of environmental protection and the development of sustainability plans to achieve that end. Sustainability in this sense means: Meeting the needs and wants of the present without compromising the needs and wants of the future.
