Carolyn Lukensmeyer

American voters have lost confidence in the ability of our political leaders to solve the most serious of problems: a staggering deficit, the need for jobs, a broken tax system.

BOTTLING THINGS UP

One of the things that happens when an interpersonal conflict begins to brew is a need to decide whether or not to raise the issue, concern, etc. with the other person. And how and when to do so, if that is the choice we make. This conundrum is often complicated for those who have a tendency to ‘bottle things up’ which essentially translates into containing thoughts and feelings and a hesitancy to share what is happening.

Let’s take the imagery of bottling things up a little further…

RAGE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD

Rage is a word that describes a strong emotion that sometimes evolves when we are in conflict. It is not necessarily an immediate reaction. Rather, it is one that often signals an escalation of feelings such as anger and hurt about a person and/or an issue. The build-up erupts into a state of being furious, incensed, and out of control of our words, thoughts, and emotions.

This week’s blog considers that rage, like some other ‘four-letter words’ stated fiercely, is an extreme…

Reports from the front, in the Online Education Wars

Lately, it seems as if everybody has been writing about MOOCS. I'm surprised we haven't seen Hollywood personages step in and do their part.

This piece by Andrew Delbanco in The New Republic is the most intelligent piece of writing on the topic I've seen in months - and in MOOC-time, a few months are the equivalent of a few centuries in traditional education.…
