Plagiarism” means the intentional unacknowledged use or incorporation of any other person’s work in, or as a basis for, one’s own work offered for academic consideration or credit or for public presentation. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, representing as one’s own, without attribution, any other individual’s words, phrasing, ideas, sequence of ideas, information or any other mode or content of expression.

The International Space Station enjoyed a moment in front of the sun with a spectacular cameo photo during Monday’s solar eclipse.

Look closely at this photo of the great North American solar eclipse. You’ll notice the sun and the moon’s rounded bite taken out of the side. Most of the dark specks are sunspots. But there’s something else notable. A larger speck near the curve of the moon’s shadow is the International Space Station.

This Is The Place!

Posted: August 8, 2017 in Uncategorized

This Is The PlaceThis is the place where I will post our readings this semester. You can also use the blog to keep in touch with me, and ask questions and comment on assigned texts. WordPress is easy and fun to use. I know many of you will take right to it, whereas it will be new and intimidating for others. The more you follow and utilize this form, the better you will get to know my ways of thinking and my expectations regarding your work, the more help and guidance you will receive, and the more you will learn.

To follow ENSARKOSIS just click the option above and to the left in the transparent toolbar.

I have used blogs with great success in variety of courses over the last seven years. It has been an tremendous resource for both my students and me. You will be amazed at how much you will learn – from me, your peers, and yourself – if you will check this site regularly and treat it not just as a task but as an expressive artistic medium, a vehicle through which to think in new and exciting ways.

Please, don’t allow yourself to become anxious about writing here. I’ve designed this as a place to diffuse anxieties and to get to know my expectations gradually, long before it’s time to write a paper. Using WordPress really is not very hard at all, and becomes increasingly fun once you get that hang of it.

Finally, for those who want a standing means to access to the syllabus, there is a link to it in the banner/menu above. You will be held responsible for its contents and I would recommend reviewing it throughout the semester.
Best wishes,
Brian
