Critique of Postmodern Ethics of Alterity versus Embodied (Muslim) Others: Incompatibility, Diversio
In this dissertation, I investigated postmodern alterity, constructivism, and agency through addressing their translatability and implications. In Chapter One, I critiqued postmodern main concepts of alterity and constructivism, showing that these terms can be vague and counterproductive unless they are attenuated with political socio-cultural realities. In Chapter Two, through analyzing modern texts, I explored claims that Western epistemology/ontology reduces the other to the Same. Although su

A Comparative Study of Metaphor in Arabic and English General Business Writing with Teaching Implica

Furthermore, in this dissertation, I also attempted to address the impact of culture in metaphorical thinking. The study made use of a holistic approach, utilizing textual analysis, conversation meetings, partic

Penn State Odor Assessment Lab seeks to mitigate nuisance odor emissions from farm areas.
Once upon a time the boundary between farmland and housing developments was very distinct. Farmers in the past did not necessarily concern themselves with the odors that came from field operations, but as more people move to rural areas from urban sites, farmers and non farming residents have become next door neighbors and nuisance odors have become a problem. Robin Brandt is the co-director of the Penn State Odor Assessment Lab in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering. His

Anthony Scaturro: Cyber Security for Non-technical Users
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Your work or home computer may contain information about yourself, (e.g., tax returns and other personal information), about others (e.g., work-related reports, databases), or about matters you are working on (e.g., research) that you may not want to share with the public. It is not uncommon for computer users to assume that the various computer and software vendors sell products that will protect such information “out-of-the-box.“ While their products may conta
Space Emergent Field
Architecture has always been founded upon ideologies. However could the influence of human interactions create a new perspective for space form evolution? To create a spatial adaptive system, to the influence of culture and behaviour of human being? The output of this spatial system is the determination of optimised values for spatial configurations by biomolecular, self-assembly computation for emergent spatial forms.??
