    1. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of majority of positive reviews especially since almost all the reviewers had no knowledge Japanese picture brides. The few criticisms were confined to production value that comes with the territory of being a low budget independent film, to whether a certain actor was the best choice for a part or only touching superficially on the complexity of the side plots, like worker conditions in the fields. It’s a shame that Picture Bride couldn’t have been made into a 2-3 part miniseries and delve in greater depth into these side plots like the complicated and intricate matchmaking process, the worker conditions and pay hierarchy based on ethnicity, to the widespread drinking and gambling that inflicted many of the husbands, or the injustice of having all their personal reminders, letters, pictures, wedding dresses and etc. of their families and ties to Japan confiscated by the FBI after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the indignity of not being allowed to become US citizens until the mid 1950’s when Federal law was changed allowing

      One reviewer on Amazon writes a long review of this film and this person's opinions on other reviews.

    1. Ga-eun: Children and adults are re-acting totally differently to the film. Children are excited about Hana’s adventures, while parents often feel Ga-eun Yoon about THE HOUSE OF US“My gift to all girls taking charge of their own lives”tortured or guilty. That surprises me, as throughout the making of the film I was only focussed on the children and how they are dealing with the situa-tion.

      Audiences in different identities (as parents, or as children) react differently to the film.

    1. Each user and each expert has incentives to work separately toward theconstruction of such a Garden. The users get to find answers, and expertscan rid themselves of commonly asked questions.

      This may help me with my own research needs to crowdsource peer review and create "living peer reviews."

    2. Several important considerations behind Answer Garden include:

      This feels entirely different from modern organizational memory aids like Almanac (https://almanac.io/)!

    3. ngineerschose not to go to the channel of the highest quality for technical informa-tion, but rather to go to the channel of highest accessibility (i.e., lowestpsychological cost). Allen [1977] argued that the psychological cost was inthe potential lack of reciprocity between giving and obtaining informationand in the status implications of admitting ignorance.

      My last company had a page in their wiki with acronyms and downloadable Excel spreadsheets!

    4. information technology can support organizational memory in twoways, either by making recorded knowledge retrievable or by makingindividuals with knowledge accessible

      I tried to do this in my last role as a lab manager and we have a PhD student spreadsheet I added variables to for this specific purpose.

      Check it out here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10qMAJjYc7fTGLLSmvrD7pk8v1KeHJYLC47JMBvqxG8A/edit?usp=sharing

    5. n other words, wewant to minimize the upstream costs of an organizational memory mecha-nism and make the downstream payoffs clear

      Just avoid Jira!

    1. Our argument issimply that for working, learning, and innovating to thrive collectively depends onlinking these three, in theory and in practice, more closely, more realistically, andmore reflectively than is generally the case at present.

      iSchools can do this. There are individuals studying all three at UMD's iSchool. But that knowledge is largely theoretical or contextualized to particular research programs. It's innert, and not practiced (only preached).

    1. Oh, my goodness. It's kind of scary looking, actually.

      This reminded me of a time when I was on vacation to Iraq in the city of Karbala. There was a blue car on the street, without a driver in the car. The police arrived with dogs that looked very scary. The dogs circled around the car, and they sniffed out explosives. The police then ordered the people to empty the street so everyone can be safe.

    2. If I were ever caught by surprise and survived an attack by a wild animal, I hope I'd use Fitzgerald's calm compassion as a model.

      I agree with because it is a good way to survive

    3. A new study finds that getting the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night may help you tame your sweet tooth.

      I agree with this sentence because when I stay up late at night, I feel I am hungry and eat sweet things.

    1. independent of sleep — can also influence how our bodies respond to all the calories we eat

      I agree with this.I have heard a lot about the effect of eating late at night on the weight of the human body and also it happened to me in a period of time I used to eat fast food late at night and gained a lot of weight.

    2. The pandemic has also blurred the usual distinction between weekday and weekend consumption patterns.

      I agree with her, because before the pandemic, life was completely different, as all family members, most of them in schools, work or outside the home, so people did not need to use electricity in homes except for a few hours, and their consumption of electricity increased on vacations and holidays. But after the epidemic, electricity consumption has doubled, because they stay at home all day.

    3. uch as cutting back on caffeine, reducing screen time and sticking to a regular bedtime each night.

      I agree that cutting back on caffeine, reducing screen time, and sticking to a regular bedtime each night helps a lot in adjusting your sleep that’s less than seven hours.

    4. "We have a very full house," she says. "There's always a computer on and there's always an Xbox playing, and there's always a TV left on."

      I agree with this. In my household we have 11 people living here. There is always an electronic being used.

    5. But she knows it's a real hardship for many people — especially those who have lost their jobs.

      Yeah, I agree with her. Many people lost their jobs due to the pandemic and were struggling with their lives.

    6. "We have a very full house," she says. "There's always a computer on and there's always an Xbox playing, and there's always a TV left on."

      I disagree with this life style that they are living, I could replace the computer with a book to stop wasting time and do something that benefits the kids. Also, I can replace the xbox with family time since kids in this generation are zoomed out from the " real world" outside and keeping there head inside the game and the games only. nevertheless, TV can be on and off on times that we are actually using it , all of these thing that are listed will make the bill less and more healthy life style in the family

    1. one's bodily consciousness is the contraction,

      A bodily reaction to emotion could be a contraction for example, the eyebrows move as do the eyes.

    2. The first set of examples, the sounds, lines, and colours, are either bodily sensations, or the images of such. The second set seem to depend on processes in the ideational centres exclusively. Taken together, they appear to prove that there are pleasures and pains inherent in certain forms of nerve-action as such, wherever that action occur.

      Knowing the difference to having an emotional reaction that can be seen versus one that can is shown through nerve reaction

    3. two things concerning the emotions, one must be true. Either separate and special centres, affected to them alone, are their brain-seat, or else they correspond to processes occurring in the motor and sensory centres,

      emotions rely on both motor and sensory centers. Why?

    1. Dr. Deepti Gurdasani [@dgurdasani1]. (2021, December 14). So those critiquing others for being too certain (I get subtweeted a lot for this)- Am I certain about the exact impact of omicron in the UK? Not at all Am I certain it’ll be high impact? Quite Am I certain we should act now? Absolutely [Tweet]. Twitter. https://twitter.com/dgurdasani1/status/1470828234480701443

    1. wsbgnl. (2021, January 26). I am disturbed by the hundreds of thousands of covid deaths...and counting. But what’s most disturbing to me now is the general reaction to it, the inexplicable lack of urgency or even interest in doing much to stop it in the short term. Its so far beyond what I had imagined. [Tweet]. @wsbgnl. https://twitter.com/wsbgnl/status/1353869830026268672

    1. "We did see enough of life coming back to normal [summer 2020] that gave us the sense that people are pretty set in their habits, people are going to go back to shopping malls,

      I agree with that because the people feel like they start to know more about the disease and they know how to protect themselves from the covid virus

    1. Annual Reminder. Adhering to a strict dress code of shirt and tie for men and dresses for women

      Remarkable and clear method

    2. 5,000 federal employees and thrusting them out of the closet

      That was the large amount. Did it make any loss to the organization ?

    3. hardest

      Nevertheless,I think it was always hard for them in those years

    4. educate homosexuals and heterosexuals toward an ethical homosexual culture paralleling the cultures of the Negro, Mexican and Jewish peoples”

      However, it sound more the practical way of compromising the issue than using violence

    5. forced to start again from first principles, with only a vague awareness of Hirschfeld’s legacy.

      That was the huge loss. They have no choice but to restart

    6. legible sexual and gender identity, which could be afforded civil rights

      Seem like more hope for the LQBTQ+ people to live their happier lives.

    7. campaigned for increased rights for, and study of, sexual and gender-variant people.

      With this way, it probably be better than overcome one by violence. It will make everyone get to know more about the issue

    8. might mean.

      Understanable, It always tricky for people to admit something new and figure out is it good or bad for them

    9. gained the least from the mainstreaming of the struggle

      Sadly, they were deprived what they should receive.

    10. punished in the US by imprisonment, chemical castration, social ostracisation and a lifetime as a registered sex offender

      These are way too harsh and full of immoral actions which done to a human

    11. more than 5 million people took part in New York’s annual Pride events

      that was am enormous number back then

    12. refuges for homeless trans and queer people

      They were helping together warmly

    13. police harassment

      Giving the police powers to attack people is go against moral.

    14. secretly within myself

      Sympathetic that he had to keep it himself

    1. Vogue overstepped. It got too chummy too fast. Harris made history. She may be a different kind of vice president. But don’t call her Kamala.

      This is reaction to the context as it states an opinion, saying the article is too familiar and does not properly encapsulate the vice-president's grandeur.

    2. These are not official portraits, but neither are they glamour shots or journalistic ones. They exist in the in-between. They mark history and capture the woman who breathes life into the title of vice president. But these pictures also help to craft a mythology — in this case, about a Black woman and power in America.

      This is another response as it is not clearly stating a fact, the article fails to blend the line of fashion and journalism.

    1. Another unexpected finding was the connection between well-being and the percentage of residents commuting by bicycle.

      That is so cool! It is healthy to be able to do some exercises while getting to work and it also helps you get fresh air. It can be hard sometimes and it might make you feel tired, but personally I like it.

    1. Too much sleep can throw off your body clock. So, an hour or two of extra sleep is fine, but you don't want to sleep in so long on a Sunday morning that then it's hard to fall asleep Sunday night.

      I agree, because if I sleep long in day of i feel asleep on my school day.

    1. Maybe that makes you want to barf, I don't know.
    2. The success of JSX has proved that the second curly is unnecessary. Moreover, a lot of people — particularly those who have been exposed to React — have a visceral negative reaction to double curlies, many of them assuming that it brings with it all the limitations of crusty old languages like Mustache and Handlebars, where you can't use arbitrary JavaScript in expressions.

    1. A study published back in 2013 found that just five days of shortened sleep can lead to weight gain. In that study, people were allowed to sleep for just five hours for a five-day period.

      I do not agree because it depends on the type of body, there are bodies that accept obesity quickly and there are bodies that do not accept obesity quickly during sleep

    2. They also can be used to store emergency contact details, social media profiles or e-tickets for events and rail journeys within Sweden.

      This Is cool but I also think it is dangerous because unlike money and credit cards if someone wants to steel them from you they can take them without harming you. But the chip is in your hand so you will be harmed.

    1. C7H16(l)+O2(g)→CO2(g)+H2O(g)(3.1.4)(3.1.4)C7H16(l)+O2(g)→CO2(g)+H2O(g) C_7H_{16} (l) + O_2 (g) \rightarrow CO_2 (g) + H_2O (g) \label{3.1.3} The complete combustion of any hydrocarbon with sufficient oxygen always yields carbon dioxide and water. Figure\PageIndex{2}: An Example of a Combustion Reaction. The wax in a candle is a high-molecular-mass hydrocarbon, which produces gaseous carbon dioxide and water vapor in a combustion reaction (see Equation\ref{3.1.3}). Equation\ref{3.1.3} is not balanced: the numbers of each type of atom on the reactant side of the equation (7 carbon atoms, 16 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms) is not the same as the numbers of each type of atom on the product side (1 carbon atom, 2 hydrogen atoms, and 3 oxygen atoms). Consequently, the coefficients of the reactants and products must be adjusted to give the same numbers of atoms of each type on both sides of the equation. Because the identities of the reactants and products are fixed, the equation cannot be balanced by changing the subscripts of the reactants or the products. To do so would change the chemical identity of the species being described, as illustrated in Figure\PageIndex{3}. Figure\PageIndex{3}: Balancing Equations. You cannot change subscripts in a chemical formula to balance a chemical equation; you can change only the coefficients. Changing subscripts changes the ratios of atoms in the molecule and the resulting chemical properties. For example, water (H2O) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) are chemically distinct substances. H2O2 decomposes to H2O and O2 gas when it comes in contact with the metal platinum, whereas no such reaction occurs between water and platinum. The simplest and most generally useful method for balancing chemical equations is “inspection,” better known as trial and error. The following is an efficient approach to balancing a chemical equation using this method.

    1. This is one of many discussions of Kirkpatrick's four levels of evaluation. More of the page is taken up with decoration and graphics than needs to be the case but this page is included in this list because it offers a printable guide and because the hierarchy of the four levels is clearly shown. The text itself is printed in black on a white background and it is presented as a bulleted list (the bullets are not organized as well as they could be). Nonetheless it is a usable presentation of this model. rating 3/5

    1. are step-by-step descriptions of what occurs on a molecular level in chemical reactions. Each step of the reaction mechanism is known as an elementary process, a term used to describe a moment in the reaction when one or more molecules changes geometry or is perturbed by the addition or omission of another interacting molecule. Collectively, an overall reaction and a reaction mechanism consist of multiple elementary processes. These elementary steps are the basic building blocks of a complex reaction, and cannot be broken down any further.

    1. It was the degree of centrality to the white population of the state which alone then constituted the important point of comparison between these places

      I find this statement in the document appalling. The founders portray blatant racism within the first paragraph as they decide upon the foundation for the University. I find it baffling that a university designed for the bettering of an entire state would exclude its benefits from such a large segment of the population for which it was designed. Furthermore, it is concerning that issues regarding the exclusion of certain groups of the population remain an issue today amidst the twenty-first century. However, it is encouraging that the University and the larger population of the United States have made great progress towards removing these racist beliefs.

    1. Fled to his house amazed. Men, wives, and children stare, cry out, and run, As it were doomsday.

      The discussion at Brutus' home in Act II Scene I revealed that there was much fear surrounding Antonius' reaction to Caesar's death. Trebonius was the only conspirator to agree with Brutus that Mark Antony did not pose a threat, instead remarking that '"There is no fear in him; let him not die; For he will live, and laugh at this hereafter." However, this act of compassion would eventually lead to the conspirators' downfall.

      Therefore, Trebonius' conspiratorial role was to lure Mark Antony away from the Senate House while Caesar's assassination was taking place. Consequently, he was the only conspirator that did not stab Caesar.

      As witnessed by Trebonius, Mark Antony "fled to his house amazed" in response to Julius Caesar's death. This indicates the strong relationship between the two Romans, and foreshadows the ardent vengeance that Antony is to develop.

      Furthermore, Trebonius recalls that "Men, wives, and children stare, cry out, and run, as it were doomsday." The comparison between the assassination and Armageddon reinforce the idea that the conspirators were not acting in the interests of the general public, but instead in the interests of themselves and their own envy.

    1. Democracy is just a word, when the people are starvin'The average citizen, made to be, blind to the reason

      The idea that a word, that the American people has based this country and every war we have aided in, is just a word is made to have an impact that maybe we have lost what a democracy is. If we are living in our "democracy" than have we become blind as this "average citizen" to live our lives sufficiently that we forget about the people who don't live in the luxury that we are. If democracy is just a word than it has become worthless and we have become transparent to it.
