No Think Am- Clip 4
"A famous Frenchman once said, 'War has become far too important to entrust to the generals.' Today, business, I think, should be saying: 'Politics have become far too important to entrust to the politicians'."Remarks, Business Council, Hot Springs, Virginia, 10/20/62
No Think Am- Clip 4
"Don't join the book burners. Don't think you are going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book, as long as that document does not offend our own ideas of decency. That should be the only censorship."Remarks at the Dartmouth College Commencement Exercises, Hanover, New Hampshire, 6/14/53 [AUDIO]
"When I found the first camp like that I think I never was so angry in my life. The bestiality displayed there was not merely piled up bodies of people that had starved to death, but to follow out the road and see where they tried to evacuate them so they could still work, you could see where they sprawled on the road. You could go to their burial pits and see horrors that really I wouldn't even want to begin to describe. I think people ought to know about such things. It explains something of my attitude toward the German war criminal. I believe he must be punished, and I will hold out for that forever."Press conference, 6/18/45 [DDE's Pre-Presidential Papers, Principal File, Box 156, Press Statements and Releases, 1944-46 (1)]
"Now I think, speaking roughly, by leadership we mean the art of getting someone else to do something that you want done because he wants to do it, not because your position of power can compel him to do it, or your position of authority. A commander of a regiment is not necessarily a leader. He has all of the appurtenances of power given by a set of Army regulations by which he can compel unified action. He can say to a body such as this, "Rise," and "Sit down." You do it exactly. But that is not leadership."Remarks at the Annual Conference of the Society for Personnel Administration, 5/12/54 [AUDIO]
"The essence of leadership is to get others to do something because they think you want it done and because they know it is worth while doing -- that is what we are talking about."Remarks at the Republican Campaign Picnic at the President's Gettysburg Farm, 9/12/56
"I like to believe that people, in the long run, are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."Radio and Television Broadcast With Prime Minister Macmillan in London, 8/31/59
"Today I think that prayer is just simply a necessity, because by prayer I believe we mean an effort to get in touch with the Infinite. We know that even our prayers are imperfect. Even our supplications are imperfect. Of course they are. We are imperfect human beings. But if we can back off from those problems and make the effort, then there is something that ties us all together. We have begun in our grasp of that basis of understanding, which is that all free government is firmly founded in a deeply-felt religious faith."Remarks at the Dedicatory Prayer Breakfast of the International Christian Leadership, 2/5/53
"But I think a life of raising prize cattle, going shooting two or three times a year, fishing in the summer, and interspersing the whole thing with some golf and bridge -- and whenever I felt like talking or writing, doing it with abandon and with no sense of responsibility whatsoever -- maybe such a life wouldn't be so bad."Letter, DDE to Alfred M. Gruenther, 11/2/56 [The Papers of Dwight D. Eisenhower, Volume XVII - The Presidency: The Middle Way, Part XI, Chapter 22]
"Probably no one here knows I coached a football team -- a service team -- playing against Georgetown. I think it was in the fall of 1924 Lou Little was your coach, and he beat us. But it was a very happy circumstance, because it brought me the friendship of another man, Lou Little, who to this day remains my very warm associate and friend."Remarks at the Dedication of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service of Georgetown University, 10/13/58 [AUDIO]
"Well, a funny thing, there are three that I like all for the same reason, golf, fishing, and shooting, and I do because first, they take you into the fields. There is mild exercise, the kind that an older individual probably should have. And on top of it, it induces you to take at any one time 2 or 3 hours, if you can, where you are thinking of the bird or that ball or the wily trout. Now, to my mind it is a very healthful, beneficial kind of thing, and I do it whenever I get a chance, as you well know."The President's Press Conference of 10/15/58 [AUDIO]
"I think of going back to the sports field again, and let's take a baseball game. Well, you have cracked out a grounder and you put in your last ounce of energy and you just happen to make first base. But you don't stop there. First base is the beginning. Now you call on all your alertness, your skill, your energy -- and you count on your teammates, you count on the people that are working with you. And the purpose of that getting on first base was to get you around to count a run."Remarks at a Republican Men's Luncheon in Cleveland, Ohio 11/4/60 [AUDIO]
If the use of copyright-protected material in a video qualifies as a copyright exception, then the video is considered lawful and non-infringing. This is why we often ask copyright holders to think about whether copyright exceptions apply before submitting a copyright removal request to YouTube. If a copyright holder believes a video doesn't qualify for an exception, then they must provide us with an adequate explanation as to why.
So what I want to say is that achieving balance without moving your limbs is not a prerequisite to being able to swim well, and using a nose clip is an acceptable way of keeping water out of your nose/sinuses, if you can't achieve this without a clip.
I cannot remember telling my parents that I was studying Classics; they might well have found out for the first time on graduation day. Of all the subjects on this planet, I think they would have been hard put to name one less useful than Greek mythology when it came to securing the keys to an executive bathroom.
Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure, but the world is quite eager to give you a set of criteria if you let it. So I think it fair to say that by any conventional measure, a mere seven years after my graduation day, I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally short-lived marriage had imploded, and I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain, without being homeless. The fears that my parents had had for me, and that I had had for myself, had both come to pass, and by every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew.
Now you might think that I chose my second theme, the importance of imagination, because of the part it played in rebuilding my life, but that is not wholly so. Though I personally will defend the value of bedtime stories to my last gasp, I have learned to value imagination in a much broader sense. Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathise with humans whose experiences we have never shared.
I might be tempted to envy people who can live that way, except that I do not think they have any fewer nightmares than I do. Choosing to live in narrow spaces leads to a form of mental agoraphobia, and that brings its own terrors. I think the wilfully unimaginative see more monsters. They are often more afraid.
Speaking a day after the parents of a 6-year-old boy who was killed in the 2012 attack testified about the suffering, death threats and harassment they've endured because of what Jones has trumpeted on his media platforms, the Infowars host told a Texas courtroom that he definitely thinks the attack happened.
The ability to think critically is not only expected by employers but also almost unilaterally prescribed by accrediting bodies.6 The provision of high level care by pharmacists across all health care disciplines inherently requires the ability to think critically. As technology continues to make rote knowledge rapidly searchable, discoverable, and transferrable, the ability to think critically continues to gain importance. Tyreman states that all knowledge of suffering people is derived from two sources: previously treated patients with a similar disease course or changing medical knowledge.7 Therefore, the ability to relate current patient events to previous ones, while appreciating the innate limitations of this practice, is paramount to thinking critically.
The challenges involved with teaching critical thinking are not new. Since as early as the 1950s, education has faced the issue of teaching critical thinking to students, and, with few exceptions, educators have failed to consistently document successes.11 Three key principles underlying critical thinking have been described for educators tasked with motivating students towards better thinking.8 First, critical thinking is not simply a skill that can be learned. Second, critical thinking is more likely in those learners with certain metacognitive strategies in place (eg, the forethought to consistently look for the deep structure in a question). Finally, the ability to think critically relies to some extent on domain knowledge and practice. In other words, one must not only recognize the deep structure of a question, but also be able to relate it to prior experiences. It therefore follows that one cannot think critically about an issue in which they have no point of reference.
Despite the noted difficulty in teaching critical thinking, a number of methods have been proposed to aid educators charged with teaching critical thinking to student health care professionals. Among other methods, these variations can include group learning, problem-based learning, case-based learning, writing and reflection, concept mapping, and experiential education (Table 1). A complete discussion of these methods is beyond the scope of this paper as other authors have previously compiled comprehensive reviews in this regard.3 It should be noted, however, that few of the aforementioned methods focus on metacognition. 041b061a72
