Félix Guattari

Pierre-Félix Guattari was a French psychotherapist, philosopher and activist. He founded both schizoanalysis and ecosophy, is best known for his intellectual collaborations with Gilles Deleuze, most notably Anti-Oedipus and A Thousand Plateaus, the two volumes of Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Guattari was born in a working-class suburb of north-west Paris, France, he trained under the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan in the early 1950s. Subsequently, he worked all his life at the experimental psychiatric clinic of La Borde under the direction of Lacan's pupil, the psychiatrist Jean Oury. La Borde was a venue for conversation among many students of philosophy, psychology and social work. One novel orientation developed at La Borde consisted of the suspension of the classical analyst/analysand pair in favour of an open confrontation in group therapy. In contrast to the Freudian school's individualistic style of analysis, this practice studied the dynamics of several subjects in complex interaction. From 1955 to 1965, Guattari contributed to La Voie Communiste, a Trotskyist newspaper.

He supported anti-colonialist struggles as well as the Italian Autonomists. Guattari took part in the G. T. P. S. I. Which gathered many psychiatrists at the beginning of the sixties and created the Association of Institutional Psychotherapy in November 1965, it was at the same time that he founded, along with other militants, the F. G. E. R. I. and its review Recherche, working on philosophy, psychoanalysis, architecture, etc. The F. G. E. R. I. Came to represent aspects of the multiple political and cultural engagements of Guattari: the Group for Young Hispanics, the Franco-Chinese Friendships, the opposition activities with the wars in Algeria and Vietnam, the participation in the M. N. E. F. With the U. N. E. F; the policy of the offices of psychological academic aid, the organisation of the University Working Groups, but the reorganizations of the training courses with the Centers of Training to the Methods of Education Activities for psychiatric male nurses, as well as the formation of Friendly Male Nurses, the studies on architecture and the projects of construction of a day hospital for "students and young workers".

In 1967, he appeared as one of the founders of OSARLA. In 1968, Guattari met Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Jean-Jacques Lebel, Julian Beck, he was involved in the large-scale French protests of 1968, starting from the Movement of March 22. It was in the aftermath of 1968 that Guattari met Gilles Deleuze at the University of Vincennes and began to lay the ground-work for the soon to be infamous Anti-Oedipus, which Michel Foucault described as "an introduction to the non-fascist life" in his preface to the book. In 1970, he created Center for the Study and Research of Institutional Formation), which developed the approach explored in the Recherches journal. In 1973, Guattari was tried and fined for committing an "outrage to public decency" for publishing an issue of Recherches on homosexuality. In 1977, he created the CINEL for "new spaces of freedom" before joining in the 1980s the ecological movement with his "ecosophy". In his last book, Guattari returned to the question of subjectivity: "How to produce it, collect it, enrich it, reinvent it permanently in order to make it compatible with mutant Universes of value?"

This concern runs through all of his works, from Psychoanalysis and Transversality, through Years of Winter and Schizoanalytic Cartographies, to his collaboration with Deleuze, What is Philosophy?. In Chaosmosis, Guattari proposes an analysis of subjectivity in terms of four functors: material and semiotic fluxes; this scheme attempts to grasp the heterogeneity of components involved in the production of subjectivity, as Guattari understands it, which include both signifying semiotic components as well as "a-signifying semiological dimensions". On 29 August 1992, two weeks after an interview for Greek television, curated by Yiorgos Veltsos, Guattari died in La Borde from a heart attack; some three years on 4 November 1995, his friend and research partner Gilles Deleuze, chronically suffering from respiratory ailments and incapable of simple tasks such as writing, would commit suicide. In 1995, the posthumous release of Guattari's Chaosophy published essays and interviews concerning Guattari's work as director of the experimental La Borde clinic and his collaborations with Deleuze.

The collection includes essays such as "Balance-Sheet Program for Desiring Machines," cosigned by Deleuze, "Everybody Wants To Be a Fascist." It provides an introduction to Guattari's theories on "schizoanalysis", a process that develops Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis but which pursues a more experimental and collective approach towards analysis. In 1996, another collection of Guattari's essays and interviews, Soft Subversions, was published, which traces the d


Aleksanterinkatu is a street in the centre of Helsinki, Finland. In the city plan by Carl Ludvig Engel, it was the Decumanus Maximus, the main east-west street in the city, crossing the Cardo, Unioninkatu at the corner of the Senate Square; the street begins near the Presidential Palace and continues to meet with Mannerheimintie, the longest street in Helsinki. It runs past several famous buildings, such as Ritarihuone, the Helsinki Cathedral, the Finnish main office of the Nordea bank, the main building of the University of Helsinki, the Stockmann department store; the street, colloquially known in Helsinki as "Aleksi", was named for Emperor Alexander I of Russia in 1833. It was named Suurkatu, meaning "Grand Street", but was renamed after the Emperor's death in his honour; the streets crossing Aleksanterinkatu are named after the Emperor's mother, his brothers, his sisters. At Christmas time, Aleksanterinkatu is traditionally decorated with elaborate Christmas lights; the tram lines 2, 3, 4, 4T, 7A and 7B run along Aleksanterinkatu.

Of these, only 4 and 4T run along the street's entire length. Aleksanterinkatu is the name of the main street in many other Finnish cities, e.g.: Tampere, Oulu and Loviisa. Media related to Aleksanterinkatu at Wikimedia Commons Helsinki city museum FAQ page

Hidden Springs State Forest

Hidden Springs State Forest is a conservation area on 1,200 acres in Shelby County, United States. Hidden Springs State Forest was one of eleven state parks slated to close indefinitely on November 1, 2008 due to budget cuts by then-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. After delay, which restored funding for some of the parks, a proposal to close seven state parks and a dozen state historic sites, including Hidden Springs, went ahead on November 30, 2008. After the impeachment of Illinois Governor Blagojevich, new governor Pat Quinn reopened the closed state parks in February. In March 2009 Quinn announced he is committed to reopening the state historic sites by June 30, 2009. DNR Hidden Springs State Forest site

Menlo Report

The Menlo Report is a report published by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate], Cyber Security Division that outlines an ethical framework for research involving Information and Communications Technologies; the 17-page report was published on August 3, 2012. The following year, the Department of Homeland Security published a 33-page Companion report that includes case studies that illustrate how the principles can be applied; the Menlo Report adapted the original Belmont Report principles to the context of cybersecurity research & development, as well as adding a fourth principle, "Respect for Law and Public Interest." The Menlo Report was created under an informal, grassroots process, catalyzed by the ethical issues raised in information and communication technology computer security research. Discussions at conferences and in public discourse exposed growing awareness of ethical debates in computer security research, including issues that existing oversight authorities might have been unaware of or determined were beyond their purview.

The Menlo Report: Ethical Principles Guiding Information and Communication Technology Research is the core document stemming from the series of working group meetings that broached these issues in an attempt to pre-empt research harms and galvanize the community around common ethical principles and applications. This report proposes a framework for ethical guidelines for computer and information security research, based on the principles set forth in the 1979 Belmont Report, a seminal guide for ethical research in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. Despite its age, the Belmont Report's insightful abstraction renders it a valuable cornerstone for other domains; the Menlo Report describes how the three principles in the Belmont report can be usefully applied in fields related to research about or involving information and communication technology. ICT research raises new challenges resulting from interactions between humans and communications technologies. In particular, today's ICT research contexts contend with ubiquitously connected network environments, overlaid with varied discordant legal regimes and social norms.

The Menlo Report illustrates the application of these principles to information systems security research – a critical infrastructure priority with broad impact and demonstrated potential for widespread harm – although we expect the proposed framework to be relevant to other disciplines, including those targeted by the Belmont report but now operating in more complex and interconnected contexts. The Menlo Report details four core ethical principles: three from the original Belmont Report - respect for persons and justice, an additional principle - respect for law and public interest; the report explains each of these in the context of ICT research. The Menlo Report attempts to summarize a set of basic principles to guide the identification and resolution of ethical problems arising in research of or involving ICT. ICT is a general umbrella term that encompasses networks and software technologies that involve information communications pertaining to or impacting individuals and organizations.

ICT has become integrated into our individual and collective daily lives, mediating our behaviors and communications and presenting new tensions that challenge the applications of these guiding principles. The challenges of ICTR risk assessment derive from three factors: the researcher-subject relationships, which tend to be disconnected and intermediated by technology. In order to properly apply any of the principles listed above in the complex setting of ICT research, it is first necessary to perform a systematic and comprehensive stakeholder analysis; the Proposed guidelines for ethical assessment of ICT Research are: Respect for Persons. Participation as a research subject is voluntary, follows from informed consent. Beneficence. Do not harm. Justice; each person deserves equal consideration in how to be treated, the benefits of research should be distributed according to individual need, societal contribution, merit. Respect for Law and Public Interest. Engage in legal due diligence and be transparent in methods and results.

Be accountable for actions. 1. Respect for Persons Appropriate application of the principles of Respect for Persons, Beneficence and Respect for Law and Public Interest requires that Stakeholder Analysis must first be performed. Thorough stakeholder analysis is important to identifying: the correct entity from whom to seek informed consent. Informed consent assures that research subjects who are put at risk through their involvement in research understand the proposed research, the purpose for which they are being asked to participate in research, the anticipated benefits of the research, the risks of the subject's participation i

USS Caldwell (DD-69)

USS Caldwell was the lead ship of her class of destroyers built for the United States Navy in the 1910s. The Caldwells were a transitional design between the "thousand-tonners" of the Sampson-class and the mass-produced destroyers built during World War I, they introduced the flush-deck and were known as the first of the "flush deckers" that were so wet in heavy weather. The ship displaced 1,262 long tons at 1,379 long tons at deep load, they had an overall length of 315 feet 6 inches, a beam of 30 feet 7 inches and a draught of 8 feet 10 inches. They had a crew of 95 enlisted men; the propulsion arrangements differed between the ships of the class. Caldwell was powered by two Curtis steam turbines, each driving one propeller shaft, using steam provided by four Thornycroft boilers; the turbines developed a total of 18,500 shaft horsepower and were designed to reach a speed of 30 knots. Caldwell reached 31.7 kilotonnes during sea trials. The ships carried a maximum of 205 long tons of fuel oil that gave them a range of 2,500 nautical miles at 20 knots.

The ships were armed with four 4-inch guns in single mounts and were fitted with two 1-pounder guns for anti-aircraft defense. Their primary weapon, was their torpedo battery of a dozen 21 inch torpedo tubes in four triple mounts. During World War I, the 1-pounders were replaced by 3-inch anti-aircraft guns and a "Y-gun" depth charge thrower replaced the aft AA gun and the searchlight. Caldwell was launched 10 July 1917 by Mare Island Navy Yard, sponsored by Miss C. Caldwell, commissioned 1 December 1917, Lieutenant Commander B. McCandless in command, she was the first Navy ship named for Lieutenant James R. Caldwell. Ordered to join the Atlantic Fleet, Caldwell reached Norfolk, Virginia, 8 January 1918, Queenstown, Ireland, 5 March, she participated in patrol and convoy escort duty, which were interrupted when Caldwell aided in urgent experimental work on underwater listening devices to employ against German submarines. After the close of World War I, Caldwell transported troops to Brest and while there joined the escort for President Woodrow Wilson in George Washington as he entered the harbor.

Caldwell returned home for operations with the Norfolk Division, Destroyer Force, Atlantic Fleet, with Destroyer Squadron 3 along the east coast during 1919. Placed in reserve in August 1920, she operated with a reduced complement out of Charleston, South Carolina, Newport, Rhode Island, she was decommissioned at Philadelphia Navy Yard 27 June 1922. She was sold there 30 June 1936. Friedman, Norman. U. S. Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History. Annapolis, Maryland: Naval Institute Press. ISBN 0-87021-733-X. Gardiner, Robert & Gray, eds..
