However, the Colosseum was not actually completed and opened for business until 80 AD, during the reign of Titus. Far and away, the most important site for presenting games was the Circus Maximus, a huge stadium built around BC, which was, most notably, the domain of the frenetically popular chariot races. The stadium, which could accommodatespectators, was yards long and yards wide; it enclosed a giant racetrack, which circled an elevated central island, or "spine", 1, feet in length, which was graced by statues, columns, fountains, and altars.
Reiner 4 Neuroethics 65 Neuroscience has substantially advanced the understanding of how changes in brain biochemistry contribute to mechanisms of tolerance and physical dependence via exposure to addictive drugs.
Promoting a brain disease concept is grounded in beneficent and utilitarian thinking: However such claims may yield unintended consequences by fostering discrimination commonly associated with pathology.
Specifically, the language of neuroscience used to describe addiction may reduce attitudes such as blame and responsibility while inadvertently identifying addicted persons as neurobiological others.
This paper examines the merits and limitations of adopting the language of neuroscience to describe addiction. It argues that the reframing of addiction in the language of neuroscience provides benefits such as the creation of empowered biosocial communities, but also creates a new set of risks, as descriptive neuroscience concepts are inseparable from historical attitudes and intuitions towards addiction and addicted persons.
In particular, placing emphasis on the diseased brain may foster unintended harm by paradoxically increasing social distance towards the vulnerable group the term is intended to benefit.
Burgess Hillary Burgess 29 Quinnipiac L. Lawyers need to be able to identify when their clients have legal problems outside of their narrow area of specialty and they need to devise legal solutions that do not violate other areas of law.
However, law students tend to forget a significant amount of the doctrine and policy before they graduate. Researchers have found ways to improve learning, especially for the complex learning that takes place in law school.
Applying these techniques in law school would allow professors to cover more doctrine at more sophisticated levels while knowing that their students will retain much of their lessons throughout their career.
This article begins by mapping common law school learning tasks onto a leading taxonomy of learning objectives. This article argues that the legal curriculum engages all six levels of learning by traditionally teaching the lowest four levels of learning.
However, law schools traditionally test on the highest four levels of learning because this level of thinking is required to practice law competently.
To help professors teach all six levels of learning optimally, this article provides a neuroscience and cognitive psychology perspective on how students learn. This section serves as a reference for any professor interested in how students learn.
The article reviews research that indicates that students learn more, at deeper levels, while retaining information longer when they engage in multimodal learning, especially learning involving visual aids and visual exercises.
This article serves three purposes. First, it provides professors with a review of the theoretical and scientific literature on learning theory as it applies to law school.
This information will provide professors a reference when they reform the overall legal curriculum, modify teaching strategies, and create innovative teaching methods.
Secondly, this article provides professors with information about teaching methods that increase student learning and retention in law school, on the bar, and for a lifetime career in law. Third, this article provides concrete guidelines for law faculty interested in incorporating visual aids effectively in their teaching.
The article also provides many concrete examples of specific teaching techniques that professors could adopt in their own class immediately.Chapter 3 Verbal Communication. In my junior year of college, I took a course in semantics, which focused on verbal language and solidified my interest in language.
I love learning about the history of words, learning new words, and seeing how language changes over time and from one context to .
ENTERTAINMENT, POLITICS, AND THE SOUL: LESSONS OF THE ROMAN GAMES (PART TWO) PART ONE. Introduction. The Ludi and the Munera: Public and Private Games. Human Rights Watch would like to thank all of the survivors of sexual violence, former offenders and their families, social workers, advocates, law enforcement officials, and attorneys who shared.
Guidelines to help psychologists make their practices more accessible and disability-sensitive, enhancing their working relationships with clients with disabilities, and more.
Effective communication is a valuable skill in the workplace, and listening properly is the most important part of effective communication. Poor listening skills definitely make a huge, negative impact on team morale and productivity.
The present research shows that managers communicate negative feedback ineffectively because they suffer from transparency illusions that cause them to overestimate how .
