For instance, it is a part of a being whose temporal boundaries aredetermined by relations of psychological continuity (Section 4) amongits stages. That is, one of the beings thinking your current thoughtsis an aggregate of person-stages, each of which is psychologicallycontinuous with each of the others and with no other stage. If this iswhat you are, then you persist by virtue of psychologicalcontinuity. Your current stage is also a part of a being whosetemporal boundaries are determined by relations ofpsychological connectedness. That is, one of the beings nowthinking your thoughts is an aggregate of person-stages, each of whichis psychologically connected with each of the others and to no otherstage. This may not be the same as the first being, as some stages maybe psychologically continuous with your current stage but notpsychologically connected with it. If this is what you are, thenpsychological connectedness is necessary and sufficient for you topersist (Lewis 1976). What’s more, your current stage is a part of ahuman organism, which persists by virtue of brute-physical continuity,and a part of many bizarre and gerrymandered objects, such as“contacti persons” (Hirsch 1982, ch. 10). Some even saythat you are your current stage itself (Sider 2001a,188–208). And there would be many other candidates.
A white paper may be told in the Problem/Solution format, but rarely in the Before/After format.White papers tend to be used earlier in the sales cycle, to help prospects visualize a possible solution to a nagging problem.Case studies tend to be used later in the sales cycle to reassure a prospect that other buyers benefited from the same approach they are considering.For a longer discussion, see my article Remember, we’re not talking about an electronic book intended to be read on an e-reader or smartphone.We’re talking abut e-books used in B2B content marketing.That type of e-book and a white paper can be hard to tell apart. You can often call the same document a white paper or an e-book.A B2B e-book can be just about any length on just about any topic.Many e-books look more like slide decks than text-driven documents.
Evidence. How do we find out who is who? Whatevidence bears on the question of whether the person here now is theone who was here yesterday? One source of evidence is first-personmemory: if you remember doing some particular action, or at least seemto remember, and someone really did do it, this supports the claimthat that person is you. Another source is physical continuity: if theperson who did it looks just like you, or even better if she is insome sense physically or spatio-temporally continuous with you, thattoo is reason to think she is you. Which of these sources is morefundamental? Does first-person memory count as evidence all byitself, for instance, or only insofar as we can check it againstpublicly available physical facts? What should we do when they supportopposing verdicts? Suppose Charlie’s memories are erased and replacedwith accurate memories (or apparent memories) of the life of someonelong dead—Guy Fawkes, say (Williams 1956-7). Ought we toconclude, on the basis of memory evidence, that the resulting personis not Charlie but Guy Fawkes brought back to life, or ought weinstead to infer from the absence of physical continuity that he issimply Charlie with memory loss? What principle would answer thisquestion?
(7) In second semester calculus, there were three chapters full of formulasthat could all be derived from the first formula in the chapter, but neitherthe book nor any of the teachers pointed out that all but the first formulawas derivative. There appeared to be much memorization needed to learneach of these individual formulas. I happened to notice the relationshipthe night before the midterm exam, purely by luck and some coincidentalreasoning about something else. I figured I was the last to see it of the1500 students in the course and that, as usual, I had been very naive aboutthe material. It turned out I was the only one to see it. I did extremelywell but everyone else did miserably on the test because memory under examconditions was no match for reasoning. Had the teachers or the book simplyspecifically said the first formula was a general principle from whichyou could derive all the others, most of the other students would havedone well on the test also.
An e-book may sound like more fun than a white paper that sounds like a lot of work.Many competitors publish white papersIf you’re trying to break through the noise of competing white papers, an e-book might sound different enough to be engaging.You could gain more traction by presenting the same content as an e-book instead of a white paper.Just remember: The goal is the same.
An ideal e-book—just like an ideal white paper—will help your target audience understand an issue, solve a problem, or make a decision.If your content does that, you can call it an e-book, a white paper, or whatever… and your audience will still thank you for it. Press releases are short, factual announcements of interest to a certain audience.
Slaves didnt build America on their own. We ALL built it. Dont take all credit from white ppl. We arent/werent perfect but WHO IN THE HELL IS?! 90% or more of the technology enjoyed by the entire world was created by Whites and Asians including the simplest of inventions to the most complicated. Bash us for our faults ONLY if you will recognise our clear contributions to the world as a whole while also accepting your own faults. Nobody is perfect but this country has created (with the help of whites) a mostly equal environment for ppl of all races, nationalities etc. And FYI most whites are poor and from broken homes or had a hard hand dealt to them also. Whites have no white priviledge. Those who were dealt a good hand are blessed. Life sucks period. Ive had a bad childhood and a hard life. Some caused by my parents bad choices and others from my own bad choices and many from outside uncontrollable factors. Its called life. Whites cant make the world perfect for everyone else without self responsibility on their part. Own your faults while i own mine. And together we can own the responsibility of making the world a better place for future generations. Your way just wont work. It obviously didnt work for past cultures either. The world is changing. Some change is good and some change is bad. It cant all be pit on one grpups shoulders. Together we stand. Divided we all fall together.
To each his/her own -however: Black is a term derived from the Portuguese word “Negra” meaning BLACK, which became Negro, N…, Colored, and now Black – all of which was key to stripping African people of their history,culture, language,and most importantly IDENTITY. To embrace “Black” as your identity leaves you without history or knowledge of self beyond a few generations. I take pride in being African (first) and no pride in being american – why should any of us? I am simply an African born in a foreign land with papers to move about more freely than others. Whether you now hail from Brazil, West Indies, or any of the other port-of-calls where Africans were re-settled by force-of-arms does not change the fact that you are of African descent, and in the eyes of Europeans and their descendants you will always be AFRICAN (or as they put it BLACK – meaning African), first/for-most/and finally, regardless of which country you now call home.
No honey school is not n session because you have failed. Or definition of hate and the way it was originally written in the text is not the same way we do today. If you read the entire Passage you will see the way the word Hate was used to identify who God chose to learn his chosen people, the Israelites. ( Which is why he renamed Jacob, Israel) The way Hate was translated from the original text meant to choose one person over another. He did not technically “hate” ESAU. He just did not choose him to lead his people. If you looked deeper into the text, you would be able to see that ESAU was greatly blessed by God. There were lot of times where he chose certain people to do his work over others and the term hate was used but none of those people suffered because of it.
you are confused, when u speak about nationality and race , brown black all those words are crayons that cant represent nationality , african american also makes no sense, y bcuz america is named after a white man amerigo and africa is also named after a romen general those names where given to those places by so called white people…..so if u call your self any of those things really makes no sense, those are not nationality..what we do know is that your history was stripped from you for a reason, theres a reason the so called black people have no clue who they are..doesnt matter if your living in america or haiti or dr or puerto rico, none of you are origanally from that place..u were all brought there by slave ships..all those island where named by white people, just research what they mean………if u have any bealive in God go to Deuteronomy 28 chapter and see what God says about his chosen people, and how our history would be stripped from us…….africa is a continent on many countries we are not all africans, japan, chines, Korean, all those people look the same but they are not the same people….just bcuz african have same color……africans did not sell other african or natianality is hebrew isrealites Gods chosen people according to Gods word, just study the curses in deu. 28 and see if it fits the so called black people of today………God doesn’t love everybody, he has a chosen people witch are his hebrew people isreal…..those peole in isreal now are what revulation 2v9 speaks about………IF U DISAGREE JUST READ THE BIBLE…..WAKE UP SHEEPSSSSS
I honestly think you can be a black person who doesn’t like the term “African American” and still be interested in your roots. But wanting to feel a connection with your heritage will come from the knowledge you choose to acquire about your ancestral land and not some label that we are trying to put on ALL black people everywhere. I actually heard someone call the POTUS an African American. Even when we know the country that his father is from we still just dump him in the African American lump. If anything shouldn’t he be Kenyan American? Or no he shouldn’t because African American simply identifies the colour of his skin (for some reason).
