But what makes a big idea? Here, Stefan Mumaw reveals the seven characteristics of ideas that resonate. He'll show you what big ideas look like, using examples from real-world companies like Dove, Volkswagen, TNT, and Google, and teach you how to unlock the potential in your own ideas and connect with your audience in a "big" way.

WordPress Developer Tips: Enqueuing Styles and Scripts

Lynda.com - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Morten Rand-Hendriksen

Released On: 7/22/2014

There's a right way and a wrong way to add style sheets and JavaScript libraries and scripts to your WordPress themes. The right way takes advantage of the WordPress enqueue system, which prevents script and style conflicts. In this installment of WordPress Developer Tips, staff author Morten Rand-Hendriksen introduces the two main functions for enqueuing: wp_enqueue_style() and wp_enqueue_script(0). He'll show how the functions work and how to adjust their parameters, as well as theoretical and practical examples of implementing them in themes. This course uses Simone, a theme developed especially for Morten's WordPress: Building Themes from Scratch Using Underscores course, but you can use any theme or subtheme that you'd like.


‘Dirty’ and Infertile: the Underdiagnosis and Impact of Chlamydia

‘Dirty’ and Infertile: the Underdiagnosis and Impact of Chlamydia Carte, Elizabeth Personal identity is shaped as we navigate our social world and perceive our experiences. Human reproduction and motherhood have come to be associated with womanhood in immeasurable ways, to the extent that some consider pregnancy and motherhood to be the essence of womanhood. Therefore, complications such as infertility can have a huge impact on a woman’s identity. The World Health Organization estimates that everyday more than 1 million people are infected with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) (“Sexually Transmitted Infections). When left untreated, STIs can pose serious complications for women planning to become pregnant. Chlamydia, the most common STD in the United States, can result in urethritis, cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain (Paavonen et al., 1990). The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 2.86 million Americans are infected with Chlamydia annually, however as many as half of these cases go unreported; a frightening statistic considering 10-15% of the untreated infections develop into Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) and PID results in infertility 10-15% of the time (“STDs &Infertility”; “Pelvic Inflammatory Disease”). The Institute of Medicine estimates that PID is the etiology of infertility in at least 15% of infertile American women, yet less than 50% of sexually active young females, the most at-risk group, are tested annually. In 2000, 25.3% of young women were tested (“The Hidden Epidemic”). By 2007, it jumped to 41.6% (U.S Preventative Services Task Force). Historical failures of the medical community, current health disparities, and female-specific social pressures explain why so many cases of Chlamydia go undiagnosed, but the potential implications of Chlamydia and infertility on female identity are evidence that continuous efforts must be made to ensure all women are able to utilize preventative health services.

A Foucauldian Critique of Sexualized Neo-Imperialism and the U.S. War on Terror

A Foucauldian Critique of Sexualized Neo-Imperialism and the U.S. War on Terror Buchanan, Kristin The U.S.’s intercession into the affairs and crises of the developing world appears to stem from motivations of benevolence, or an assumed responsibility to take on the role of “policeman” on the global stage. Often, the U.S. justifies its costly intercessions into the affairs of other countries, squandering tax payer money and putting citizens’ lives in jeopardy, by appealing to democratic values and human rights. However, rather than imagined magnanimity, Western interventions are characterized by intersections of power and dominance, exoticization, and othering marked by the Western imperial past (Abu-Lughod). As the U.S. continues to make its presence known in the developing world, feminist theories and conceptions of the gaze shed light on the racist, gendered, and sexualized discursive construction of the third world subject as the target of the Western civilizing mission. The male gaze is a form of violence structured by power relations and rooted in an imperial past that continues to shape race relations surrounding the gaze. Foucault’s analysis of Bentham’s panopticon and matrices of power, knowledge, and discipline reveal the transformative effect of the gaze in carrying out the Western agenda. Understanding this contemporary moment requires a look back into the past. In what follows I will ask how the patterns of historical imperialism have been reconfigured in the modern day, and how the application of Foucault’s theories can help us understand these elements. I will interrogate the dynamics around spectacle and visuality that have persisted from the colonial period into the neo-colonial period, and argue that in this critical juncture, Foucualt’s concept of the gaze sheds light on the extreme ways representational power is mobilized to colonial and neo-colonial ends.

“Fighting Sexism with Racism:” Anti-Immigration, Secularism, and the Politics of Shame in French Banlieues

“Fighting Sexism with Racism:” Anti-Immigration, Secularism, and the Politics of Shame in French Banlieues Recinos, Denise Throughout this paper, I analyze the case of gang rapes in French banlieues. I explore the reactions women have towards sexual violence, such as the shame rape survivors experience in their communities when speaking out. I also examine Samira Bellil’s memoir about being gang raped to further understand the implications and trauma rape survivors face, in particular those living in French banlieues. I analyze the ways in which the French Republic highlights sexual violence in banlieues and associates men of Maghreb and Muslim background as the main perpetrators of gang rapes. Even though the French state addresses sexual violence, highlighting and associating rape with men of North African countries creates a double bind for women living in banlieues. Survivors want to speak about their suffering, but at the same time they do not want to further stigmatize the communities they come from. As a result, the community demonizes and adds pressure to women to stay silent.
