word meaning for "what sort" or "what kind," is a term used in philosophy to describe the subjective quality of conscious experience. Examples of qualia are the pain of a headache, the taste of wine, or the redness of an evening sky. Daniel Dennett writes that qualia is "an unfamiliar term for something that could not be more familiar to each of us: the ways things seem to us." The importance of qualia in philosophy of mind comes largely from the fact that they are often seen as posing a fundamental problem for materialist explanations of the mind-body problem. Much of the debate over their ...

(Photo credit, Rosalie Winard.)  Some salient paragraphs from the scene article: “...You have to remember autism is a spectrum that goes all the way from very, very, very severe where the person is going to remain non-verbal and handicapped, to people that are brilliant scientists. It’s a huge spectrum,” she said. “I don’t think the increase is the mild end because the Asperger types have always been there. I think some of ... market research, surveys and trends
born to be different
I think that men and women were created to function in separate roles. Now, dont get me wrong. If you are feminist, please pull your nails out of the desk... I am not talking about necessarily a feminine or masculine superiority. I speak only of different roles. It is no mystery that men and women are biologically different creatures. While I could rant on about how various biological difference would promote usefulness in some roles while not in others... I will avoid the 3rd Grade psyc lecture. Today, I thought about something that I really found interesting. A few days ago I read the book "The Tipping Point". If ... market research, surveys and trends

A Scanner Darkly: thoughts on the film adaptation and the unfilmable
in a series of posts to be followed by a live online chat today at 3:30 p.m. CST. Watch this space for a link to the chat, and come join us. Tasha Robinson: The first time I watched Richard Linklater’s 2006 film A Scanner Darkly , I hadn’t yet read the book, and I experienced the movie as a series of distracted, almost unconnected scenes, nearly as shapeless as Linklater’s breakthrough Slacker , or his Waking Life , which like Scanner , was a rotoscoped collaboration with animator Bob Sabiston. Having read the novel and re-watched the film, I have far more respect for it now; it’s an astonishingly ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What can I do about an older father's change in behavior? | Ask ...
A 60-something father has begun lying to me, in manipulative ways. My mom blows it off as not a big deal, as do my siblings. Is there anything I can do? Is everyone in denial? Long story short: dad suffers a stroke with some paralysis on the left side of the body a few years ago. Some searching reveals I should expect a changes in empathy, sense of humor, and language skills. I've seen changes in all three. I interact with parents about once every 6 months when I visit, and in the last year I've noticed things take a turn for the worse. I get calls from dad saying mom is crying because we're leaving soon and we ...
What do you think when someone says they are Mexican?
If I had to think of stereotypes for Mexicans, from Mexico…I’d think of old 90’s automobiles with tacky racing wings on the back, racing stripes, all sorts of exotic looking decals, and perhaps a mexican flag on the back window. Education could vary a lot, I have Mexican friends who have college degrees, but I drive down urban areas and see Mexican’s doing car work for next to free and I’d assume their education would be quite limited in comparison. I normally think someone who is actually Mexican not just hispanic, would be a bit shorter than most people as well. How they came to be here, well I ...
