Motivation is about things that you think you should do or that you're supposed to do. I loved my boyfriend very much. He was very kind, helpful, smart, very intelligent, and just a wonderful man. But I always think, that he thinks I’m too skinny. Because he always tell me to eat more, not because I’m too skinny because it’s not good for my health. Sometimes he told me, he thinks I'm too skinny and he doesn't like it. I like the long lean look and try to take care of myself. I don't diet, I just have a healthy lifestyle. I'm 5'6" about 110 lbs. he sometimes asked me what I've eaten during the day. Must times the time I wonder if he doesn't like my body. But I like my body the way it is. When my Boyfriend and I started our relationship, he never mention that he does not like my body or I’m too thin for him. It was hard for me to explain to him that I’m slim, not skinny, and I always over eat too. And I was really motivated to break up my relationship. And I did break up with him, because I was really sick of telling him that I’ve always been slim, or defending my appetite. I did not want to lose him but, it really hurts my feelings when I see he does not like my body.

...urban life except policing’. This suggests, they argue, ‘a rather more ambiguous urban scenario than “The Unstoppable Drive of Civilizatiorn”’. Moreover, ‘anomalies along the road to civilization’, they suggest, such as ‘the Nazi holocaust or the invention of the Stanley knife’ cannot be dismissed as merely ‘countercivilizing’. They add that, in working-class communities, the monopoly of violence is held by young men and physical violence remains a common aspect of everyday life. It is not, that is to say, ‘an option limited to those who have escaped the civilizing influence of the Downloaded by [University of Ottawa] at 14:44 24 March 2014 134 THE SOCIAL ROOTS OF FOOTBALL HOOLIGANISM wider community but ‘a fact of working class iife…and not restricted to youth” ’. However, the core of Hobbs and Robins’s interpretation and critique of our reliance on the work of Norbert Elias is summed up in the following passage: The Leicester group consistently attempt to locate their findings in the context of Norbert Elias’s theory of ‘civilizing processes’. Central to this coupling of empirical work and metatheory is the belief that the working class has become increasingly ‘incorporated’. According to Elias, key elites have traditionally determined social standards, and the growing complexity and interdependency of social and economic networks has increased the pressures on them to do so. The most consistent of these pressures are those that are asserted by the growing......

How to Survive a Nuclear Attack

...of the extensive Russian plans and preparations to survive a nuclear war are based on using at least several days during an escalating crisis to get most urban dwellers out of the cities and other high risk areas, to build or improve shelters in all parts of the Soviet Union, and to protect essential machinery and the like. The Russians know that if they are able to complete evacuation and sheltering plans before the outbreak of nuclear war, the number of their people killed would be a small fraction of those who otherwise would die. Our satellites and other sources of intelligence would reveal such massive movements within a day; therefore, under the most likely circumstances Americans would have several days in which to make Iife-saving preparations. The Russians have learned from the devastating wars they have survived that people are the most important asset to be saved. Russian civil defense publications emphasize Lenin's justly famous statement: "The primary productive factor of all humanity is the laboring man, the worker. If he survives, we can save everything and restore everything ... but we shall perish if we are not able to save him." Strategists conclude that those in power in the Soviet Union are very unlikely to launch a nuclear attack until they have protected most of their people. The reassurance of having at least a few days of pre-attack warning, however, is lessening. The Increasing numbers of Soviet blast shelters and of......

Chamer Six: The Consciaus ûestrucüon of Natural Order (1) The Seventh Circle Witti the seventh circle, Dante is no longer able to follow Aristotle's Ethics so closely. He does, of course, show the readers what life is like with the elimination of the fouroi and final cardinal virtue of justice.' But Aristotle wntes relatîveiy little about evil per se. Apart from the list of violent and furtive sins quoted above, there is an even shorter mention of vicious acts and emotions in Book II: 'malice, shamelesçness, envy, and, of actions, aduttery, theft, murdefO2 There is nowhere a systematic treatment, for Aristotle almost always wntes about ethical Iife by moving from the imperfect towards the perfed. Dante structures the circle, instead, on the mode1of the inversion of the two great cornmandments, to love God, and one's neighbour as oneseff. First, 1 The inhabitants of the bottom three circles will be 'the worstn,who practise " the whole of vice". (Ethics V, 1,113Oa). Aristotle discusses courage, temperance, justice and wisdom in that order. He deals with justice primarily as a specific virtue pertinent to extemal social relations before going on to treat of the intemal virtue of wisdorn in the soul. Dante considers wi*sdom before justice probably because he wants to deal with justice as a general virtue. Cf: Ethics V,i, 1129b. "Justice ... in this sense is perfect virtue...
