Brian Cauley, Neighbourhood Messages
Brian Cauley, Neighbourhood Messages. Installation of school desk and typewriter for messages on tags to be hung from the tree. Late Tuesday afternoon saw a mother and daughter in composition, otherwise the art space was unoccupied. Brian Cauley, “Neighbourhood Messages” is part of A Piece of a City with Art of the Danforth.

Don River Park
Don River Park. Beyond construction fences, the urban marsh, playhill and pavilion would seem to be mostly completed in the new Don River Park. Rerouting of Bayview Avenue connecting to River Street is still underway and residential housing is still skeleton, so children jumping the gates are a low probability. (Toronto) 20120609 1458
Mill Street Dining
Mill Street Dining. Table for 300, please? Temporary chairs around banquet table stretching half a city block on Mill Street. Friends presumably sit beside each other, rather than across a table. Couldn’t they have planned for more, shorter tablecloths? President’s Choice 1000 Tastes of Toronto starting the Luminato Festival has kiosks also inside the Distillery District on Trinity Street and Gristmill Lane. (Toronto) 20120609 1718
Convocation diploma
Convocation diploma. Adam Ing, Bachelor of Applied Science, Materials Engineering, University of Toronto Convocation, June 20, 2012.

Vancouver towers northwest
Vancouver towers northwest. View towards North Vancouver shore from 27th floor balcony looking northwest. Primary view from Hyatt on this trip is west, so urban view wins over nature. (Vancouver) 20120626 0827

      “You are entitled to your own opinions, but not to your own facts” by #DanielPatrickMoynihan is predated on @Freakonomics by #BernardMBaruch 1950 “Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts”.

    • Bullshit, Politics, and the Democratic Power of Satire | Paul Babbitt | 2013
      Satire can be an antidote, says Prof. #PaulBabbitt @muleriders , to #bullshit (c.f. rhetoric; hypocrisy; crocodile tears; propaganda; intellectual dishonesty; politeness, etiquette and civility; commonsense and conventional wisdom; symbolic votes; platitudes and valence issues).
    • Health Systems Research and Critical Systems Thinking: The case for partnership | Michael C. Jackson, Luis G. Sambo | 2019/08
      If we don’t first know “what is system is”, how do we approach an intervention? #MichaelCJackson OBE and Dr. #LuisGSambo appreciate the difference between “systems thinking” (plural) and “system dynamics” (singular), and suggest expanding theory with Critical #SystemThinking in Health Systems Research. An ignorance of history is, if anything, even more pronounced among those authors […]

    • Defining the ‘field at a given time’ | Lewin | 1943
      The field theory in psychology by #KurtLewin 1943 derives from classical field theory (viz. electromagnetism and gravitation), predating quantum field theory (viz. subatomic particles). For psychology, Lewin wrote in 1943 how history (and a subjective view of the future) matters. It is correct that field theory emphasizes the importance of the fact that any event […]
