The Devious Bachelor - 23 Aug 2015 15:45

Tags:

[[html]]Roald Dahl is famous for his mischievous children’s stories. But as Jennet Conant reports in “The Irregulars,” he was also a British spy. Conant, who has written popular accounts of the secret development of radar and the atomic bomb, shows that Dahl, a former R.A.F. hero, parachuted himself into Washington blue-blood circles in 1942 and used his embassy post to begin spying on Britain’s closest and most important ally.
<br><br>Like his chums Noël Coward and Ian Fleming, both of whom also assisted British intelligence during the war, Dahl was firmly in the tradition of the amateur gentleman-spy, and in Washington he soon acquired a taste for a lavish lifestyle that he never lost. To the end of his life, Conant writes, Dahl demanded that his publisher dispatch a Rolls-Royce to collect manuscripts from his home. In Washington, where the grand parties and salons depicted in the Henry Adams novel “Democracy” lingered on, Dahl’s combat record, good looks and charm made him a prize social catch.
<br><br>Dahl’s entry into Washington high-life was immeasurably smoothed by the avuncular Texas newspaper magnate and oil tycoon Charles Edward Marsh, who had moved to the capital to <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/19/books/review/Heilbrunn-t.html?_r=0">Writer Jenny Conant</a> aid the New Deal. Marsh, who lived in a 19th-century mansion in Dupont Circle, introduced Dahl to his friends. Soon, Dahl was hobnobbing with Eleanor Roosevelt during weekends at Hyde Park, where he also met the president, allowing him to become, Conant expansively concludes, “a back-channel conduit of information” to Churchill.
<br><br>In 1943 a crafty Canadian industrialist and associate of Winston Churchill, William Stephenson, tapped Dahl to join his spy network, British Security Coordination. Stephenson’s original mandate had been to help push America into World War II. After Pearl Harbor, he was assigned to keep tabs on America’s postwar plans and to counter any lingering isolationist sentiments. Despite America’s entry into the war, a number of conservative newspapers and socialites remained rabid Roosevelt haters and loathed the British Empire. Many of them lived in Washington; according to Conant, “with the playgrounds of Europe closed to tourists, moneyed society was forced to stay home, and Washington was brimming with wealthy dowagers and their bored, unmarried daughters.” What the journalist Joseph Alsop later called the “WASP ascendancy” ruled Washington social life.
<br><br>Dahl befriended the publisher of the reactionary Washington Times-Herald, Eleanor (Cissie) Patterson, whom Roosevelt had denounced as a social “parasite” more interested in giving tea parties than in aiding the war effort. There was also the hostess Evalyn Walsh McLean, whose son-in-law, Senator Robert Rice Reynolds of North Carolina, had initially blamed the Pearl Harbor attack on the British who, Conant writes, now “monitored his every move.”
<br><br>McLean, who never received her guests without the 45 1/2 carat Hope diamond dangling from her neck, made Dahl a regular at the glamorous Sunday night dinners she presided over in her Massachusetts Avenue manor house, which featured dance orchestras, previews of first-run movies and a hundred or more guests per gathering. According to Conant, “all Dahl had to do was keep up a cheerful front and eavesdrop his way through the yawning Sunday breakfasts, hunt breakfasts, luncheons, teas, tea dances, innumerable drinks parties, banquets and not infrequent balls.”
<br><br>Certainly Dahl, as Conant shows, was not slow in compiling a remarkable record in wooing heiresses and dowagers. Conant numbers among his conquests the beautiful congresswoman Clare Boothe Luce and the even more stunning Standard Oil heiress Millicent Rogers, who had eloped to Paris at age 19 with one Count Ludwig Salm von Hoogstraten and, after her divorce, lived in an 18th-century manor in Virginia that was, we learn from Conant, stuffed with a trove of Empire and Biedermeier furniture. Indeed, “inspired by her eclectic finds, from the group of antique clocks to a cluster of superb drawings by Watteau, Fragonard and Boucher,” Conant says, “Dahl vowed that as soon as he had enough put away, he would begin buying paintings for a modest collection of his own.”
<br><br>Years later, Conant writes, Ian Fleming, about to publish his first James Bond novel, “Casino Royale,” would irk Dahl by having an affair with Rogers in Fleming’s Jamaican retreat, Goldeneye.
<br><br>How much does all this have to do with World War II? Dahl’s stream of gossipy reports about the doings of the Washington glitterati were nectar for London, which was terrified that the Roosevelt administration would turn on it after the war ended. Every government, then and now, is always keen to learn the inside dope. But what Conant never makes quite clear is whether Dahl ever supplied any information of real consequence.
<br><br>Conant herself becomes so entranced by the glistening details she has excavated from oblivion that she never provides a coherent narrative. It’s a pity that Conant, a diligent researcher and gifted writer, has produced a mere trifle so conspicuously lacking the verve and panache of Dahl himself.

Becky Hammon is changing the NBA - 21 Aug 2015 14:19

Tags:

[[html]]With one year of experience under her belt, Becky Hammon is already being considered a legit NBA head coaching candidate after her recent championship victory with the San Antonio Spurs. The summer league is only seven games, but she made a lot of noise with her performance during that time.
<br><br>Becky Hammon is probably a name you guys have been hearing recently. Wherever you saw it or read about it, its a big move in sports, and a huge move for the society around us.
<br><br>There are many people among us that still have that conservative degrading mentality towards women and success they attempt to achieve throughout their life.
<br><br>However, Becky Hammon does not fight for her rights by her words, but by her actions.
<br><br>Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich decided to bring in Hammon on the team just before the 2014-2015 NBA season, right after she finished her playing career. She was seen as the first female assistant coach of the league. Many shook heads and thought the move should be frowned upon by the NBA.
<br><br>After she took control of the team in the summer league, many began to eat up their disgraceful words. Her victory in the summer league can be looked at incompetent due to the absence of real talent those games. However, it is something that many others began to think of as a change in the game of basketball.
<br><br>NBA commissioner Adam Silver stated on Saturday afternoon that there is “no doubt” there will be female coaches in the NBA someday. He continued to state that there “should be no barriers”.
<br><br>Many peoples thought process has evolved from “Oh, she is interesting” into “Wow! She has a great <a href="http://sprksports.com/">Latest sports news articles</a> shot at becoming an NBA head coach”.
<br><br>02-81As we all know, Popovich is an admired and well-respected coach around the league. When other head coaches see his approval on the rising start of Hammon, they will be much more likely to consider such decisions. This was also mentioned by Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN.
<br><br>“The power of a Popovich endorsement is the NBA’s ultimate seal of approval. NBA general managers and owners have marveled at what a conversation with Popovich during the interview process can do for a candidate. In Atlanta, Mike Budenholzer didn’t exactly ace the interview. But a call from Popovich that touted Budenholzer’s nuanced qualities and commitment to culture moved opinion. When a rival general manager is ready to measure Hammon’s capacity for a head-coaching job, that power of persuasion, which has the league’s best track record, will be at play on [Hammon’s] behalf.”
<br><br>“Those who know Hammon rave about her instincts and understanding of the game,” Arnovitz continues. “She’s quickly established a reputation as an ‘out-of-the-box thinker’ who appreciates the practical application of situational strategy but also the pursuit of new ideas and innovation, like her mentor, who has emphasized that the former point guard knows as much about the pick-and-roll as Tony Parker.”
<br><br>Hammon already has the support of Popovich, who called her “a natural”.
<br><br>Many people are beginning to think that she might actually be qualified and more than capable to conduct the job at a high level.
<br><br>Former Brooklyn Nets general manager Bobby Marks is one of those people.
<br><br>Marks also had a conversation with CBS Sports Radio, where he said “It wouldn’t just be because they went 6-1 in Summer League and beat Phoenix in the finals. I think she has started to prove her merit. She is paying her dues like a lot of the assistant coaches working up the ranks. She played in the league. She was a point guard. That’s your on-field quarterback. She’s being tutored by probably the best coach we’ve seen in a long time in Gregg Popovich.”
<br><br>Event though she has been gaining support around the league, she has a lot to prove. She spent most of her time in the second row of games last year for the Spurs. This year, I would like to see her alongside Popovic to gather all the coaching secrets she can get from that man. With the progress she has shown in the small time frame allowed, don’t be surprised if a team is close to picking her up as their new head coach.
<br><br>Her gaining support from the public will also have a great influence on that. She has a bright future. What do you think?

Legal research methods - 15 Aug 2015 06:06

Tags:

[[html]]Choosing the most suitable research method is very important for achieving the research aims. When writing a PhD in law, students often opt for doctrinal legal research.
<br><br>Doctrinal legal analysis is concerned with the particular legal rules. The word doctrine comes from the Latin word ‘doctrina’ which denotes learning or knowledge. Doctrinal research is concerned with analysing principles, values and rules. Doctrinal legal research is formalistic and detached from political and social matters. Law students therefore refer to primary sources, for instance, Acts of Parliament and cases, as well as secondary sources, such as academic journals and books. Hence, doctrinal legal research is based on a black letter law approach because much reliance is placed on statutes and cases. Instead, the research objective is to analyse, clarify or amend a particular legal area. Hence, this legal research method does not require law students to test the reality of individuals. However, doctrinal legal research is narrow and inward-looking. Some Law Schools therefore encourage that PhD students also assess the effect, which the law has. This latter approach is known as empirical legal research. Social science methods are employed to assess the consequence of a particular law and this helps identifying not only what the law states in theory, but what it does in practice. This can enrich the PhD, as completely different information is being generated. For instance, a PhD law student may decide to conduct interviews with relevant individuals, who can comment about the effectiveness of the particular law. Interviews generate subjective opinion and represent the interpretivist social science method. Reality can also be captured through conducting a questionnaire and this method is often chosen by those favouring the positivist paradigm. As those employing a questionnaire will use statistical tests to calculate the results, they also have to ensure that they have enough participants, i.e. a big sample size. In contrast, those opting <a href="Phdlawconsultants.com">PhD thesis proposal</a> for interviews have to only conduct them until data saturation has been reached. Of course, PhD students may adopt a mixed method research design and choose to conduct interviews and questionnaires. The main advantage of questionnaires is that answers are more precise, but the disadvantage is that the data is more limited. In contrast, an interview generates broad data, but can lack precision.
<br><br>Another common legal research method is the comparative approach. This method has several benefits: Different perspectives become understood, legislators in different countries can benefit because domestic laws can be improved and new legal solutions and policies can be devised. By studying the laws of different countries, differences and similarities become understood and this is particularly important in a globalised world, also to foster harmonisation.

Preparing for the PhD Viva Voce - 15 Aug 2015 05:51

Tags:

[[html]]PhD students have to orally defend their theses at the Viva Voce. The Viva Voce is the final journey in their PhD studies. The purpose of the Viva Voce is to establish that the PhD student has written his/her own thesis.
<br><br>There are normally one or two internal examiners and one external examiner. It is useful to get to know the external examiner before the Viva Voce or at least to read up on his or her publications and work.
<br><br>PhD students should think about the reasons for undertaking a PhD and why they initially chose the topic and what particularly interested them.
<br><br>In terms of preparing for the Viva Voce, it is crucial that PhD students know their theses and sources. It is advisable that they read their theses several times. For instance, they should know the theories, which different authors have developed. An examiner may ask what authors have influenced them and why this is the case. Equally, PhD students may be asked to list the most significant literature, which influenced their research. Students should be able to explain why they have employed a particular body of literature. An examiner may want to know whether the research builds upon existing literature or opposes it.
<br><br>An examiner may ask: “Was there anything which surprised you whilst undertaking your research?”
<br><br>PhD students may be asked what is original about their research and why this is the case. It is good to know why the research is significant and who benefits from the research. In case the direction of the research changed during the studies, it is important to know why this happened.
<br><br>PhD students should be able to discuss why they have chosen a particular methodology and justify this. In this context, an examiner may ask what the advantages and disadvantages are of the chosen methodology and enquire about the philosophical assumptions and the consequences of the methodological choices for the data collection. PhD students may also be asked to justify their particular sample.
<br><br>Additionally, examiners may ask why the data has credibility and why the results have validity. It is also important to know how ethical considerations were taken into account.
<br><br>A PhD student should know in which respects his/her thesis is limited. Maybe they are asked to explain what obstacles they encountered when undertaking their research or to talk about what they have learned <a href="Phdlawconsultants.com">PhD writing services</a> during their studies and how their personal development has benefitted. They may also be asked how other researchers can utilise their work. PhD students should know how to sum up the essence of their PhD. It is crucial to be focused when answering questions.
