18 Class THU OCT 29

Cards on the table.

Cynicism is the thin veil that
protects a sentimentalist from caring too much.

I say what I believe as if it were true. My cards are face up on the table. If you ask me why I believe it, my reasonable response is that so far I’m winning the argument. Show your cards.

Sarcasm is vulnerability expressed as humor.


Fair Warning 1

FAILURE NOTICE:
Some of you have failed the course already; you just don’t know it yet.
You’re failing if you’re in one of these situations:

  1. I posted a Hypothesis, but I didn’t have a Professor Conference about it.
  2. I posted a Hypothesis and had a Conference, but I haven’t posted my White Paper yet.
  3. I posted a White Paper, but I haven’t had a Conference, I haven’t updated my White Paper, and I’ve neglected to post BOTH my Definition and my Causal Arguments.

If you’re failing, schedule a Professor Conference right now for FRI OCT 30.
If you don’t know how to schedule a Conference, you’re in a really bad place.


Fair Warning 2

YOU’RE IN TROUBLE:
You’re not failing, but you could be making trouble for yourself.
You’re in trouble if you’re in one of these situations:

  1. I’ve posted my Portfolio assignments, but I’ve never asked for Feedback Please, so I have no idea how my professor feels about my work so far.
  2. I’ve posted one or two of my three Portfolio assignments (so far), but I have no idea if my research is good or my hypothesis is worthy of a Portfolio argument.

If you’re in trouble, place at least one of your short arguments into Feedback Please AND leave a Reply on that post asking for a specific type of feedback.


Fair Warning 3

HOW TO GET OR STAY ON TRACK:
This goes for everyone:

  1. Next THU NOV 05, your third Short Argument is due. The Rebuttal Argument.
  2. By next THU NOV 05, YOU MUST POST the first draft of all three Short Arguments.
  3. Failure to do so will put you too far behind to get feedback on your arguments.
  4. You must demonstrate responsiveness to feedback on two of your Short Arguments for inclusion in your Portfolio.

    Notes
    -why is there braille at the drive through window?
    -we figured out what that question looks like in braille 🙂
    -pretty amazing that people without sight figure out how to use this system
    -pretty amazing that it was developed at all, let alone by a child
    -fair warning: stay on top of work, do your conferences, ask for SPECIFIC feedback
    -things can be false but reasonable and vice versa because life is weird like that

  3. SmilingDogTheProfWants says:

    Notes 10/29:

    Wake Up: Learned the alphabet in braille with some punctuation and used it to read a sentence that read something like “why is there braille at the drive-thru window?”
    Also covered that claims can be true unreasonable and overall a good thing as well as the counterparts of those 3 and can be any mix of those. For example, something could be False yet still reasonable to act some way and it could be somewhat good for several people.

    10/29 Notes

    Riddle:
    Braille
    -for the blind and who can feel the sign
    -where there are dots, you feel, you feel no dots, you feel nothing; needs to be managed with touch alone
    -Braille has three tiers
    First tier is A-J
    Second tier is K-T
    Third Tier U-Z, Z is separate
    -kinda like a lego block , two columns of three
    -Tactile Pavements- braille for the feet, for people who can’t see
    -Riddle: Why is there braille in the drivethrough window
    Braille Alphabet: in October 29 Lecture

    -Warning! *Have everything turned by Nov. 5*

    Counterintuitive Predictions:
    True or False- What occurs in the world is not always reasonable, logical, or right
    False Positive and False Negatives- both bad accuracies and can led to lethal consequences
    Reasonable or Unreasonable- people act for reasons other than logic; among them sympathy, loyalty, hope, fear, vested interest etc.
    Right or Wrong- ethnics, morality

    Predictions:
    True or False: say whether its likely or unlikely
    Reasonable or Unreasonable
    Good or Bad/ Right or Wrong

  11. gooferious says:

    10/29/2020 Notes:
    – Braille was created by a 15 year old boy
    – In braille, the first ten letters do not use the bottom row of the dots
    – We should schedule meetings if we have questions regarding our work
    – Ask for Feedback to ensure we are on the right track

    Counterintuitive Predictions:
    – True or False: What occurs in the world is not always reasonable, logical, or right. Nonetheless, it could be true.
    – Reasonable or Unreasonable: People act for reasons other than logic; among them sympathy, loyalty, hope, fear, vested interest, greed, and ineptitude.
    – Right or Wrong: Decisions based on logic or reason can be ethical and moral, unethical or immoral.
    * However, you can respond differently for any response as long as it is related to the default responses(e.g. Good, likely, not crazy, etc.).
