Public Relations Ethics by Percarus on July 16th, 2012, 7:11 pm
Last semester I partook in a postgraduate course in university about Public Relations. Previously, in another university, I studied in depth a philosophical unit of ‘Ethics’. In the unit of ‘Ethics’ I learnt that the closest thing to ‘Public Relations’ ethics was a mixture of Journalism Ethics, Utilitarian Ethics, and Situational Ethics. Now, the b*tch of my Public Relations (Media Relations) course requested that we write a lengthy essay discussing ‘media relations’ ethics. Bear in mind she never studied core fundamental ethics in her whole life, and I graduated in ethics with first class honours. Anyway, I clearly knew that what she wanted us to talk about was established ‘notions’ of ethics like the ones taught in class which comprised of the following parameters of which I had memorized off by heart very quickly within the course:

 Honesty
 Accountability
 Caring for others
 Keeping promises
 Fidelity
 Fairness
 Integrity
 Respect for others
 Pursuit of excellence

Of ...

A drink & liquid that has no water. by Percarus on July 16th, 2012, 9:54 pm
During the years of 2004/05 I studied a lot of chemistry based units. There was one class in particular that shed an enlightening concept of which I have not quite forgotten yet despite losing my varied chemistry books since then. The lecturer, a reputed individual, showed a demonstration in which a non-water liquid was placed in a jar/container and into this container a block of wood was placed. Within no time the cellulose (what wood is comprised) was quite simply completely dissolved without losing its molecular structure. That is, the lecturer just showed that turning wood into a liquid was possible! Apparently there are many industrial applications to this, and there is a long list of established different solvents (non-water based) that will dissolve an array of different non-water molecular structures. Ahem, now, this was a long time ago so I cannot remember the names of the solvents without my notes with ease. I believe that one of them was ‘toluene-ethylene-glycol’, and...

Birth of Jesus Christ in the Holy Quran by Hendrick Laursen on August 27th, 2014, 6:33 pm
The 19th Chapter of Quran is named after Mary. There is a fine description of Christ's birth here, see:

19: 16-34
16 Relate in the Book (the story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.

17 She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent her our angel, and he appeared
before her as a man in all respects.

18 She said: "I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah."

19 He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son."

20 She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"

21 He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and
(We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It is
a matter (so) decreed."

22 So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.

23 And the pains of childbirth drove...

My latest poem by Hendrick Laursen on September 23rd, 2014, 10:43 am
Alley

Alley is so good,
Home is so far
The pigeon sings
the one on the roof,
Sitting against me it is.

Children of the Alley
With their plastic balls
Are pouring out one by one.

Momma is cooking
Her cooking is just excellent.
Sad is sitting she in a corner,
In her hands a handkerchief.

Daddy’s out at work,
daddy thinks of us.
My father is a hero,
Yes, he is a hero.

The Sky is blue,
His place is empty
To rise up and see
How fine we are.

Streets are crowded
‘n water flows in streams.
Here is a good place,
Yes, it’s a good place.

Trees are all proud,
Oaks and Cedars yellow.
Laughing are men and women,
And are talking loudly,

People are without pain or sorrow
They’re together talking and having fun.
This I witnessed myself,
They water the weeds.

I ask for nowhere else
To be,
Just that place.

Alley is so good,
Home is so far
The pigeon sings
The one on the roof,
Sitting against me it is.

Children of the Alley
With their plastic balls
Are pouring out one by ...

bad juju moon + impossible epitaph by Char0n on April 15th, 2014, 7:46 am
don't trust me when i'm dead... i will serve lower things than you or i and almost certainly us... and if history tells us nothing its only trying to bait us with someplace to throw our trash... i'd tell you more but then i'd have to kill you... i mean... the point is that if you think of yourself as better for having morals or an ethical outlook... fine... but don't expect the "thing with forty eyes" to be thrilled...
so it was cloudy and overcast last night... and instead of holding out hope for a break in the poor weather to see the eclipse i went to bed... wake up this morning... stupid cowardly dreams... and there are several inches of snow on the ground... what omen... snow under a blood moon... sounds like something out of the necronomicon or some twisted freaky isht
its too early for all this and more... or less... nothing breaks ice like global warming... how bout this weather... what internet isn't mankind emmersed in the power of his own mind... talk about transcendence......
