Hello there, it's Manny here. We're all rather tired again we've had a very very adventurous day today starting off quite early going to see the Pan Am 36 ___ just outside Perm about an hour and half away North I think it was. Yes very very very worrying really just to kinda see what what other human beings can do to other human beings it was it was quite traumatic quite awful. We met with Serge who gave us a guided tour. Hello there it's Manu here. We're all rather tired again we've had a very very adventurous.
Angelo and JP discuss Saturdays Showtime card featuring Marcos Maidanas great performance and shutting Broners mouth for the time being. Also Keith Thurmans ko of Soto Karass plus Leo Santa Cruz, Beibut Shumenov ,Jermall Charlo and of course JoJo Diaz last Friday Night.
Hello there this is Manu. We've arrived at ___ and it was minus 18 which was pretty cold but at the moment it's about 2:30 in the morning and I've got a head torch on cos it's so dark and the lovely crunchy noise is the sound of the snow I don't know if you can hear it hear it a bit. Similar to walking on polystyrene very odd. But I'm on my way to the washing facilities at the moment cos we left on the 20th and we haven't done any washing so ___ moral is quite high so is some of the clothing at the moment. So gonna go and see what it's like and how much we have to pay quite expensive here in Norway and speak to you again hopefully smelling lovely and soapy which will be quite refreshing from being cooped up in the van.

Hello Everyone, I can’t believe it, it is already week #15 our- final week in the course! Next week, of course, is CEP week and you do have a Research Journal Entry due on Monday, as well as a course evaluation (which will be email to you by an outside vendor). But this is really the last week of the heavy lifting in our course, ADE 689. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. The discussion is going very well. I think these past three weeks of presentation discussion have been incredibly valuable, and I can see how you all are progressing in the questions you ask and the comments you make about each presentation. I am seeing real growth here and I think it is incredible. Make no mistake, you have learn a tremendous amount of information in this course. The final two assignments of the course- the Literature Review and the Hypothetical Research Presentation- are among the hardest assignments in the entire ADE program. They were supposed to be challenging. I am glad that you found them challenging and I hope you were able to see how learning about the research methods is one thing, but applying those methods to readings to analysis and synthesis of articles, and applying those methods to an actual research project, is a different animal all together. I am so happy in this course that we were able to both learn about the methods and actually apply and use the methods. I think you are all doing a terrific job and I love the growth that I am seeing on the discussion boards. You all received back from me via email your scored literature reviews. Great work everyone! Doing a literature review is a tremendous undertaking and you should be very proud of yourself for completing one. I sent them via email so that you will get all of my detailed comments in your Word documents. I know the Blackboard grade book has been a source of great frustration to us all, so for that assignment I decided just to send it to you directly so that we can cut the Blackboard middle man. Please do review the comments I made in your Literature Reviews and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. As always, if you think you were graded inappropriately or unfairly, definitely contact me right away. I’d be happy to talk with you about your score. In general, I think you all did a really good job and I think you all are moving forward, which is the most important point. This week we are finishing up our discussions. We have three presentations going and you all are doing an excellent job on those discussions. The boards are open until Wednesday 10pm. On Thursday, I will post the presentation scores to our presenter’s grade books and I will post those presentations summaries in each of the presentation discussion boards. Those summaries are my interpretation of what the most important critiques of each presentation have been. Please do not look at peer feedback or my feedback as a critique of you- this is a really important and essential process in learning how to become a great researcher. We’ve (those of us who are now working in research and scholarship) all go through the peer review process. We’ve all had some really critical critiques, and if you can learn how to use those critiques to make your work better, well then you can truly do something great. So, thank you for being open to the process, I think it can be challenging, but it is so very critical to becoming a great researcher, a great scholar and a great student. So thank you for your openness, again. My summary post and those scores will be posted on Thursday, and that really is the conclusion of the heavy work course. In the CEP week folder, there will be another (my final) ipadio course announcement, as well as a Goodbye Discussion Board. If you would like to post a farewell message to any of your peers in the course, you can do so there. And of course, you will have one final Journal Entry to reflect back on the work that you’ve done in this class. Next weekend, please take a minute, if you can, to run a grade report or to look at your scores in the course and to see what score you expect to get and what score you want to get in the course. If you think I have put a score in incorrectly or something isn’t scored, please contact me. Hopefully by the weekend the Blackboard grade book will be in excellent shape and you will be able to do the exercise without too much trouble. I will be available via email over the weekend and on Monday, and next Tuesday morning I have my final office hours from 8-9am. I am happy to speak with you over the telephone or meet with in person. So again, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Thanks everyone- have a great week!
Hi this is Felicity and I'm calling from pretty much as Northern as North as you can get in Norway the famous end of Norway is a place called Nord Cap Nord Cape and we couldn't quite get there today cos of the weather. So we're in a little village a little short of that but we're gonna stay here over night and the storm is raging outside it's really incredible it just suddenly the visibility just disappears and you can have ___ wind for a minute or 2 and then it'll die back down again so you go from being able to see something a few kilometres away to not being able to see something a few inches away. We only got this far because of the help of the snow plough men who drive up and down the road they get covered in snow and keep it clear so that people can get through to the villages up here but even they closed the road to Nord Cap today because it was too windy. Apparently yesterday they advised had one of these huge snow plough machines get physically blown off one of the roads cos it was

Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying the second presentation week! Thank you again to all the presenters and thank you to everyone for providing excellent peer review feedback. I’d like to take a minute to share with you the story of the first time I provide a presentation on a research study and received peer review feedback on it. I had spent several weeks working on a qualitative research study with rural high school students about their perceptions on schooling. I transcribed the interviews, I analyze the data and I presented my findings to my classmates and my professor in my doctoral program. After I did my presentation, my professor said (and my professor is Lois Weis) “Well Andrea that was very interesting, but it certainly wasn’t qualitative research.” My peers then followed up with many very critical questions about my work and I realize I had a lot to learn. It is very important to go through the peer reviewed process when you’re learning how to translate what you have learned about qualitative and quantitative research in reading and in discussion, into a real world project. I promise you it never goes as smoothly as you might imagine, and I certainly did not expect for anyone to present a perfect research project here in 689. I hope you can see the value of doing our presentations and receiving peer review feedback. I know it can be difficult to hear about some of the challenges or difficulties with your work, and I really appreciate you being open-minded to the process. Every researcher that does a valid research project goes through an approval process which involves some level of critique. Even researchers such as a Lois Weis still have to have their work approved by funding agencies, institutional review boards and other interested partners in the research. And that process always, without question, involves some level of critique. So what we are doing in our class these last few weeks is very similar to the real life process of getting a research project approved. I hope you are enjoying it and I hope you are find the process not to painful, and I hope we can all learn a lot form the work that we are sharing with each other. I will post a summary post on each discussion board after each presentation has ended this week, which means tomorrow. On Thursday I will make summary post. I posted them last week on Friday because the discussion ended on Thursday. Please be sure to take some time to read those posts. They’re very short, but they point out what are the most important critiques of the research projects that were presented. I want to make sure you get my take on what the most important parts of our peer reviewed discussions have been. For those of you who are presenters, I do post presentation scores the day after the presentation discussion board is closed. So, be sure to check the Blackboard grade book for your score and comments on your presentations. I have not yet scored the final Literature Review. I’ve been spending time scoring the presentations and I want to make sure I return all of the literature reviews back to you at about the same time. I would like to ask for your patience and I would like to score the final literature reviews next week during the Thanksgiving holiday. Next week, as you know, you don’t have any discussion boards or readings or assignments for this course. I hope you all enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family! During that time, I will have a few days where I can work on scoring your final reviews. I hope to have all those scores given back to you by the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for your patience. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week’s presentation discussions and I look forward to our continuing work in this course. Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!

granite quartz counter tops are very gorgeous as the minerals in the natural developing rock give geometric shapes and shades that virtually appear other worldly. They are strong and waterproof along with being really easy to clean and stain immune. When it come down to it, both of these kitchen counters can give you excellent results and it really is a matter of individual inclination. http://graniteorquartz.wordpress.com/

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the first presentation week, Week #12. I want to wish all of our presenters good luck! I hope you enjoy the process of having your work peer reviewed this week. Please know that everyone is reviewing your work with the best intentions, and of course they are required to ask questions or make a comment or suggestion for improvement. So, please understand that the process is done with the best intentions. I hope you all find it to be a very useful process. We have four presentation discussion boards being run this week. Everyone is required to participate in all four boards. If you are presenter, please make a first post so that you can enter your discussion board, and be sure to response to the questions and comments from your peers. If your peers post a suggestion or comment that you don’t understand or that you would like more information about, please feel free to ask your peer a follow up question. Additionally, if anyone makes the suggestion that you don’t agree with, in your response you can offer a defense as to why you have set things up the way you have (originally). Again, this should be done with the best intentions and we should all have a great attitude as we go into the peer reviewed week. For those of you who are doing the reviewing this week, please make your critique as specific as you possibly can. General suggestions often don’t move the process forward, but very specific, precise suggestions do have the ability to move our conversation forward in a very positive way. You’ll be offering those positive comments about the literature review and the hypothetical research study, as well as suggestions for improvement or questions. Please make sure you frame those questions and suggestions in a positive light, and again please be as specific as you possibly can and check back to see how each presenter has responded to your peer review feedback. The discussion board this week is open from 12am Tuesday, so it is open now, through midnight on Thursday. You are able to interact that entire time, but everyone must make a first post on the presentation discussion boards by noon on Wednesday. Peer review presenters please remember to respond to your peers as quickly as you can, so that the conversation can continue with a back and forth exchange about your response to the initial feedback. After this week, I think we will have a good sense about how the peer review process runs. Please feel free to ask any questions or concerns on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. I will not be participating in the presentation discussion board, because those board are being run by the presenters. I don’t want to “hijack” the conversation with any comments or questions that I may make or ask, so I will save my feedback until the end of the discussion. After each presentation discussion week has ended, I will post a summary post on each discussion board summarizing what I believe were the main points of the discussion and clarifying any outstanding questions or concerns. So if there are any concerns outstanding at the end of the discussion period, I will be able to response to those after the discussion has ended. Presenters: if someone ask a question and you’re not sure what the answer is, please try to find out. This is a great time to use your course readings and resources, and you’re welcome to go to outside resources as well, to clarify any questions or concerns that arise. I am thrilled with the presentations that I have been reading. It’s wonderful to see the way that you’re thinking through the information that learned in this course and putting it into action into your hypothetical research plan. I look forward to the rest of the discussion this week. Have a great time and I will post my summaries on Friday. Take care everyone!
