"Shakespeare and the Figures of Speech"
In "Shakespeare and the Figures of Speech," I continue my research and writing in
Shakespeare and rhetoric. In it, I provide the background to Shakespeare's education
in the language arts, especially style and figuration, and the influence that education
had on him as a literary artist. The article and the encyclopedia are written for
both the scholar and the common reader. READ MORE

"Neutron Scattering Differential Cross Sections for 23Na from 1.5 to 4.5 MeV."
One of the leading designs for the next generation of nuclear fission reactors is
a sodium-moderated fast reactor. Before such reactors can come online, it is necessary
to understand how neutrons, which are prevalent in the reactor environment, interact
with Na, especially in what is the fast neutron energy region between about 1 and
20 MeV. READ MORE

"A New Afterword"
This new Afterword to the Signet Edition of The Secret Agent challenges the claim that Conrad’s novel about anarchy in nineteenth-century London
itself offers a bleak and nihilistic ethics. Rather, I argue, the narrative invites
us early on—and explicitly—to distinguish an empty abyss from a substantive depth,
moving us towards the “inwardness” of individuals and politics. Instead of undermining
moral concerns, the novel’s disorienting narrative features—its irony, chronological
jumps, and shifting points of view—work to guide us towards deeper understanding both
on an individual and political level. READ MORE

"Professional student organizations and experiential learning activities: What drives
student intentions to participate?"
Experiential learning theory has been referenced as a possible method for attracting
and retaining members in student organizations. In a survey, undergraduate students
evaluated a variety of organizational features pertaining to their intention to participate
in professional student organizations. The study found that students value activities
that involve professional development and contact with professionals. Age was negatively
related to student intent to participate. In addition, ethnicity and being a first-generation
college student were not significant predictors in participating in a professional
student organization. To enhance membership recruitment and retention efforts, educators
should focus their efforts on experiential activities that enable student faculty
contact, career exploration, and skill development. READ MORE

"Deep Listening: Phenomenological Applications of Empathy to the Research Interview
and Patient Care"
Within the ethos of the social world, we encounter what Levinas called “the face of the other.” The
other's face, for Levinas, is an appeal, a call to action. This presentation focuses
on the “second person” perspective -- which is put into play when we address each
other as subjects -- is a way of seeing in which we as observers have a direct access
to the meaning of others’ experiences without having to rely on verbal communication.
This is especially important when others are unable to speak for themselves; but,
it is nonetheless a valuable “tool” in all health care contexts. It consists of the
aptitude that we all have as living persons to engage directly with others, to perceive
meaning directly in human expression, and to be able to grasp intuitively what the
other needs from us. READ MORE

"Examining first- and second-order factor structures for news credibility."
For several decades, researchers have developed and tested measures of news credibility
to identify the relative weight that news consumers give to various news outlets.
These measures of news credibility have largely failed to pass key tests of measurement
stability and validity. This research tests a measure of news credibility published
by Abdulla et al., (2004) and identifies problems with the validity of the measure.
This article proposes an alternative measure of news credibility which eliminates
the problems extant in the Abdulla (2004) measure and in other commonly used measures
of news credibility. READ MORE

"Introduction to Phenomenology"
This chapter provides a comprehensive definition of “Phenomenology” (including phenomenological
psychology and hermeneutic phenomenology), with historical background; critical debates
from within (e.g., Husserl vs Heidegger; Sartre vs Merleau-Ponty), as well as post-structuralist
(Derridean) criticism; international relevance; and practical applications to psychotherapy
and qualitative research. READ MORE

"Sustainability through stakeholder value creation"
The University of Dallas’ Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business (SYGCOB) has
been at the forefront of defining sustainability education over the past decade. In
part, this leadership has been due to its inclusive, holistic nature with regards
to sustainability education in the MBA program. The faculty believe that the best
approach to teaching sustainability is best achieved across the curriculum to expose
the students to multiple perspectives. In order to provide a cohesive element across
the program, a stakeholder value creation perspective was incorporated into the classes
to provide a consistent framework.
With this perspective as the starting point, four classes in particular, Business and Society, Value-Based Marketing, Managing Complex Organizations, and Sustainable
Supply Chain Management are used to describe how this approach readies students to meet the SYGCOB’s mission
of preparing principle and moral leaders.
In sum, the book chapter provides an overview of how each class uses its unique perspective
of delivering stakeholder value with respect to the topic of sustainability. The chapter
also builds upon the SYGCOB’s commitment to experiential learning in all classes by
including several exercises for each class. READ MORE

"Towards a further understanding of work as spiritual"
This research adds to the existing literature on the spirituality of work by focusing
on work itself as spiritual. By recognizing work and everyday tasks as spiritual and
co-creative efforts, man can find the meaning and purpose that he so adamantly desires
to achieve. This striving towards something transcendent, or a unity with others and
the universe, energizes and empowers man to achieve greater success in work and greater
satisfaction in life. Distinguishing spirituality from religion, this research asserts
that spirituality is universal and inclusive, referring to our innate capacity to
relate to others and the world through a “personal experience of transcendence.” Comparing
Catholic, Protestant, Islamic, Judaic, and secular teaching and thought, this article
uncovers the underlying desire of man to find unity and connectedness that can ultimately
be utilized for finding meaning and attaining excellence in work. & READ MORE

"Liturgical Catechesis and Catholic Identity."
Liturgy is formative, contributing to Catholic Identity. To make the formative nature
of liturgy more explicit, the General Directory for Catechesis and the National Directory for Catechesis highlight the integration of liturgy and catechesis through liturgical catechesis.
Such integration draws upon the inductive as well as deductive operations of both
liturgy and catechesis. Liturgy as formation depends on an experience of liturgy that
includes and goes beyond learning about liturgy. Those who participate in liturgy
also need to reflect on the liturgical experience and the languages of liturgy in
relation to life experience. Such liturgical language goes beyond official prayers
and assembly responses. READ MORE
