The Eucharist is the life not only of individual Christians, but of nations as well. The Eucharist is not only for personal piety, it is essential to social life, for it is the very life of the world."

It suggests that we need to look beyond competing theories or perspectives to look at how knowledge is organised around central themes that allow the different theories to compete. Discourses define what the problem is, and it is because theories share the definition of the problem that they can compete and argue.

"London Rain" by Louis MacNeice (poetry reading)
"randy" means sexually aroused. His remarks about conflicting impulses and conscience are interesting.

Grace Hopper & the Invention of the Information Age
[Recorded March 4, 2010] According to author Kurt Beyer, Grace Hopper is arguably as important a figure to computing as Bill Gates, Larry Ellison and Steve Jobs, and serves as a responsible, civic-oriented role model for current and future technical and business leaders.
