Paul Pascon

Paul Pascon was a Moroccan sociologist whose multidisciplinary work aimed to elucidate French colonialism in Morocco and the capitalism that accompanied it, the development of Morocco after its independence from France. He was the first modern scholar to study Gara Medouar, he was one of the foremost experts on the Moroccan economy and agriculture and its transformation under colonialism and after independence. Pascon was a Pied-Noir, "of soldier and settler stock", he was born in Fez, the son of an engineer of public works, from whom he inherited a love of the outdoors. In life he told his friend Ernest Gellner of his family history: his grandfather, he said, had been a Pied-Noir who had acquired land in Morocco after World War I but never became a successful farmer. One of his ancestors had been involved in the Rif War, the French-Moroccan conflict of the 1950s provoked tension; as a result of these involvements he developed "a lifelong devotion to the understanding and advancement of the Moroccan peasant".

He became a scout. In 1942 his father was imprisoned in Boudenib and his mother placed in Midelt for opposing the Vichy regime. At age 17, Pascon won a prize for a report on the Ziz and Rhéris rivers, in 1951 he received his baccalauréat in experimental sciences from the Lycée Gouraud in Rabat, he chose natural science and received his Certificat d'études supérieures préparatoires in 1952. In that year he visited Gara Medouar. In 1956, Pascon was licensed in natural sciences, sociology in 1958. After a number of administrative jobs he was hired by Institut agronomique et vétérinaire Hassan-II in 1970, where he worked until his death in a variety of functions and leading units including the Department for Rural Development, his 1975 thesis was an interdisciplinary study of the Haouz province of Marrakesh. It exemplifies the depth of analysis possible when interdisciplinary techniques, indigenous sources, a creative mind are brought to bear on a single region". A former communist and Marxist, he let go of those ideologies in life.

Pascon was a research associate at Centre national de la recherche scientifique and associate professor at Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium. Pascon's two children died during the Western Sahara War. Pascon died on 21 April 1985 in Mauretania after a car accident. In an obituary, his friend Ernest Gellner wrote: "He died at the height of his powers, at a time when he was being quite exceptionally productive, his death is a human tragedy, but it is an immeasurable loss to scholarship. He was unquestionably one of the most thorough, best informed and penetrating of the students of Moroccan and North African society". Le Haouz de Marrakech. Pascon's doctoral thesis, in two volumes. One critic reviewed it as if it were a drama with four main characters: the tribes, which make up the basic human component but in a great variety. La Maison d'lligh et l'histoire sociale du Tazerwalt. A history of the House of Illigh, the family that controlled the area of Tazerwalt from the 17th century on. Pascon was still working on this.

The posthumously published book contains five separate studies on various aspects of the family—from their acquisition of land and the execution of hydrological works in 1640 to 19th-century trade documentation, an 1825 murder. Capitalism and Agriculture in the Haouz of Marrakesh. A translation of the second part of his doctoral thesis, edited by John R. Walt, it studies the history of the Haouz region before and after colonialism, relying on dependency theory rather than Marxism. Land usage is the tool with which to measure how far capitalism penetrated into an agricultural, peripheral society

Didsbury Campus

The Didsbury Campus on Wilmslow Road, Manchester, England a private estate, was part of the Manchester Metropolitan University. It became a theological college for the Wesleyan Methodist Church in 1842, about the same time as a chapel which became part of the college was built; these buildings are now all listed. In 1946, in response to a growing need for new teachers across the country, the site became a temporary teacher training college, becoming permanent in 1950. Over the next thirty years there was a significant building programme, with classrooms, lecture theatres, sports facilities and a library all being constructed; the college became a part of Manchester Polytechnic in 1977. In 2005, the campus became home to the Science Learning Centre North West; the university closed the campus in 2014, sold the land to developers, moved its facilities to a new purpose-built campus named Birley Fields in Hulme. All the buildings constructed after the Second World War were demolished, with only the listed buildings remaining.

As of 2018 these are being converted into homes, as part of the site’s redevelopment as a residential area. According to local historian Diana Leitch, the site has been in use since 1465. In 1740 the site was purchased by the Broome family, a new house was constructed after 1785 by William Broome, extant today as the front part of the university's former administration building, now known as Sandhurst House. By 1812 the house was occupied by a Colonel Parker, in the 1820s and'30s it was a girls' school; the site was purchased by the Wesleyan Methodist Church on 18 March 1841 for £2,000, opened as a theological college on 22 September 1842 with a special service. The construction and renovations were paid for from a centenary fund, an initiative started ten years by the Methodist scholar Adam Clarke. To the south of the main house, the Methodist owners constructed a chapel that could hold 300 worshippers, along with accommodation for staff; this was dubbed the Old Pump House. In 1866 the main house was extended by the addition of two wings and a back to form a quadrangle, the front was reclad in Kerridge stone.

In 1877 a new church was built to serve the college, the large Victorian Gothic St Paul's Methodist Church, on an adjacent site, the chapel became the college library and lecture theatre. By the end of the nineteenth century Didsbury had become a branch of a national Wesleyan Theological Institution, along with Wesley College, Headingley, in Leeds and Handsworth College in Birmingham; the first president of the Institute was Jabez Bunting. During both world wars the site was used as a military hospital, with up to 200 beds and more than 5000 patients receiving treatment between 1941 and 1945. In 1943 the Board of Education had begun to consider the future of education, following reforms that would come after the war ended, it was estimated that with the raising of the school leaving age, following the 1944 Education Act, about 70,000 new teachers would be needed annually ten times as many as before the war. In 1944 a report was produced by the Board of Education on the emergency recruitment and training of teachers, it was decided that there were to be several new training colleges set up.

These colleges were to be staffed by lecturers seconded from local authorities, with mature students selected from National Service conscripts. In 1945 the theological college, no longer required by the Wesleyans, was leased to the Manchester Education Authority; the new emergency training college was opened on 31 January 1946, with Alfred Body as its first principal. The college faced some difficulties as the building which had accommodated 70 students now needed space for 224, including 140 living on site. In the first four years, renovations by the Ministry of Works included the removal of 60 chimney stacks, a new roof, new wiring and central heating. Many lectures took place away from the site in various schools and other buildings nearby, temporary huts – which would become permanent – were constructed in 1947; the first students were all ex-service men, interviewed by boards established by the Ministry of Education. The second cohort of 242 men completed their course in a similar amount of time.

Didsbury became co-educational in 1948, with 106 male students enrolling. There was some uncertainty about; the University of Manchester had expressed an interest in using the site as student accommodation, the Methodists wished to set up a training college. In the end, by 1950, the emergency college was purchased by the City of Manchester and made permanent as Didsbury Teacher Training College, with an initial enrolment of about 250 male and female students; as a result of becoming a permanent college, Didsbury became part of Manchester University's School of Education. In 1956 Lord and Lady Simon of Wythenshawe granted the college 5.5 acres of land on the opposite side of Wilmslow Road, allowing sports days to be held. Over the next two decades, numerous buildings were constructed on the site; the date the building was opened is given in parentheses where known: Simon Building. Included lecture rooms, a gymnasium, assembly hall, refectory

My Worlds Acoustic

My Worlds Acoustic is the first remix album by Canadian recording artist Justin Bieber. It was released on November 26, 2010 and was sold at Walmart retail stores and Sam's Club; the album features nine acoustic versions of songs from his debut extended play, My World, first album My World 2.0, as well as a new song "Pray". The new versions of the songs were produced by Bieber's music director, Dan Kanter, his vocal producer Kuk Harrell, producer Rob Wells. Internationally, the set is included as a part of the compilation album, My Worlds: The Collection, which included songs from the previous two releases. My Worlds Acoustic was released to iTunes, on February 8, 2011. According to Bieber, he wanted to release the album for the naysayers who critiqued his actual singing ability; the singer said that he wanted to have an acoustic album, to reflect the effect of production on his vocals. Although labeled as an acoustic album, the songs still include subtle usages of electronic sounds such as synthesizers.

The album received favorable reviews from critics, however most critics were not satisfied that the album was not genuinely acoustic. In Canada, the song debuted at number five, peaked at number four on the Canadian Albums Chart and certified Platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association. My Worlds Acoustic debuted at number seven on the US Billboard 200, selling 115,000 copies in its first week, becoming Bieber's third consecutive top ten album. On October 18, 2010, Bieber announced on his Twitter plans for an acoustic album in time for the holiday season, that it would feature unplugged versions of his songs, as well as a new song. Days on October 24, 2010, he revealed that the album was set for release on November 26, 2010. In an interview with MTV News, Bieber said that the album was for the "haters" who say he cannot sing and saying his voice was auto-tuned, that "stripping it down and having it kind of mellow and being able to hear my voice" was his purpose; the singer said he wanted to do the acoustic set because the Electronic Music production sometimes "drowns out your voice" and "takes away from the singer, over the synths and everything."

According to Kyle Anderson of MTV News the album might not have been "just another project", but rather the purpose could be "to prove the he has the skills to sustain a long and fulfilling career." In the same interview he confirmed that "Baby" and other My World 2.0 songs were re-recorded, as well as a new song. It was confirmed that the song was an inspirational song entitled, "Pray." According to Bieber, the song is a gift to his fans. The song's arrangement is set to reflect Bieber's music before he was discovered, but includes instrumentation from a string quartet, a cajón drum, the latter to represent Bieber's worldly travels to Africa. While Bieber was being interviewed by Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, Bieber talked about the song's initial writing stating that it was influenced by Michael Jackson, he thought of Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" when writing the song. Vocally, Bieber's vocals are sung in a lower key compared to previous singles. Bieber plays guitar on the album, along with his guitarist and musical director Dan Kanter.

The new versions of the other songs on the album were produced by Kanter, Bieber's vocal producer Kuk Harrell, producer Rob Wells. To promote the album as well as draw interest for Bieber's then-upcoming 3D film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Bieber shot an alternate music video for the acoustic version of the song, "Never Say Never." The video premiered during Game 3 of the 2010 World Series, in the clip, the singer dons apparel from both teams. Bieber performed "Pray" for the first time at the 2010 American Music Awards; the performance opened with Bieber sitting playing the piano while singing. Midway through the performance Bieber took center stage; the performance was ended with Bieber kneeling singing the song's title, the performance was greeted by standing ovation from the audience. After being sold only at Walmart and Sam's Club first, the album was released on iTunes on February 11, 2011, accompanying the release of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, preceding the release of Never Say Never – The Remixes.

Lucy Jones of The Daily Telegraph said that "with catchy choruses, soulful key changes and cute hooks laid bare, these are undeniably brilliant pop songs." Jones further commented that "finger clicks and mellow guitars are a welcome change from the squealing synths and pounding beats favoured by Bieber and his peers," and that the album had the ability to connect with audiences beyond his demographic. Mikael Wood of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a "B-" rating, stating that the album doesn't change Bieber's beloved "kiddie-soul vocals" calling it "perfunctory", but said that acoustic renditions such as "Baby", "One Time" and new song "Pray" deliver their "saccharine payload." Thomas Conneron of Chicago Sun-Times said that "calming down several of the pop tunes with slower tempos and patient singing" was not bad and that slowing everything down made listeners hear how the singer's voice had matured. Calling it "the sugariest acoustic album in history," Allison Stewart of The Washington Post said "its arrangements and melodies – the best parts of any Bieber record - are stripped down but otherwise little changed, demonstrating just how great most of these songs were to begin with."

Stewart said that urban numbers such as "Baby," "survive their makeovers without a hitch." Andy Kellman of Allmusic gave the album 2 and a half out of 5 stars saying that the album was "an enticement." Dan Savoie of Rockstar Weekly gave the album 4
