Market forces have profoundly affected the contemporary research university's fundamental tasks of creating and disseminating knowledge. They arguably have provided American universities access to greater wealth, better students, and stronger links with the economy. Yet they also have exaggerated inequalities, diminished the university's control over its own activities, and weakened the university's mission of serving the public. Incorporating twenty years of research and new data covering 99 research universities, Knowledge and Money explains this paradox by assessing how market forces have affected universities in four key spheres of activity: finance, undergraduate education, primary research, and participation in regional and national economic development. The book begins by chronicling how universities have enlarged revenues by optimizing tuitions, and how they have managed these funds.
It reveals why competition for the best students through selective undergraduate admissions has led to increased student consumerism and weakened university control over learning. The book also explains why research has become an increasingly autonomous activity within the university, expanding faster than class instruction or faculty resources. Finally, it shows how the linkage of research to economic development has engendered closer ties with industry and encouraged the commercialization of knowledge.
Pada era media sosial seperti sekarang ini, mungkin kita mengira bahwa tak ada lagi orang yang terlalu takut untuk berbicara. Semua pendapat yang ada di pikiran kita bebas diutarakan secara terbuka. Akan tetapi, tidak demikian kenyataannya. Masih banyak orang-orang yang takut berpendapat karena khawatir di-bully. Dianggap musuh karena pendapat dan keyakinannya berbeda dari masyarakat kebanyakan. Ada pula yang takut bicara karena khawatir suaranya tak didengar, tenggelam oleh riuhnya pembicaraan lain yang dianggap lebih penting. Dari situ, saya kemudian sadar bahwa orang-orang masih ragu bersuara karena belum banyak orang yang bersedia "mendengarkan". Mendengarkan dengan hatinya dan membuang jauh-jauh perasaan menyingkirkan ketidaksepahaman. Oleh karena itu, melalui suara-suara saya dalam buku ini, saya mengajak kalian untuk meningkatkan keberanian. Cobalah untuk berani berbicara. Cobalah untuk berani menerima perbedaan dan memahaminya. Setelah itu, mari kita belajar untuk menjadi juru bicara yang bermartabat bagi bangsa Indonesia.
Could he be the world's most successful serial killer?
Do you think Universe, in her ultimate wisdom, would present humanity with the wonderful gift of Reiki and then dictate that everyone use it and practice it in the exact same way? For the author, the answer is no. Each of us is an individual and when transmitting Reiki, the Universal Life Force Energy must take into account our individual differences. Reiki is not a static energy but a fluid one. For the author Reiki is a personal healing system, based on his relationship with Universe and the gift she gave him. And her gift is not a generic one.
It is a personal one. That is the reason this book was written - to show the reader how to connect directly with the Reiki Energy and claim the personal gift the author believes you are entitled to.
Celine is a lovely blonde German girl who is twice caught indulging in exploratory sex, much to her fathers horror.
In order to eradicate these verboten behaviors, her father engages Frau Baxter, a strict English governess, to ensure that Celine strays no further.
Celine is shocked to discover that her father has given the woman complete authority over her.
Under Frau Baxter's rigorous domination, Celine is forced to wear a bizarre suit made exclusively of rubber. At night, she'll sleep bound to a bed with rubber sheets. While she resists the woman's demands, her objections are summarily dismissed while the governess presses forward in her mission. As Celine enters into the strange world of rubber bondage and discipline, the transition is at first bearable. But with increasing restraints and new additions to her costume, her rubber world soon blossoms into complete captivity and deep enslavement. As much as she abhors what has been done to her, the rubber against her skin has the most uncommonly erotic effect on her body. And when Frau Baxter secures a rubber bladder in her mouth as a silencing device, she finds that a sexual stimulant too! Though she wants to escape the house and win back her freedom, Celine is curiously drawn to the experience that has now overtaken her life and the savage orgasms that besiege her body. As Celine is abandoned by her father to the woman's devices, the governess is aided by Herr Wolff who will assist in Celine's further transformation. Soon all her bodily functions, feeding, elimination and even breathing will be under the control of those who hold her captive. Once the rubber bondage is complete, shell be sold to a wealthy industrialist as a rubberized pet. Her new Master and his wife Leona believe that Celine has consented to her enslavement, and poor Celine, trapped in her rubber suit, has no way to divulge the truth. JG-Leathers, renowned for his portrayals of extreme bondage, has expanded on the original Celine story authored by his good friend Baron von Ronsa, creating a horrific tale of nonconsensual enslavement.
