He slipped the surly bonds of Earth more than once, but astronaut and senator John Glenn never forgot the land he came from, Vice President Joe Biden said at Glenn's funeral on Saturday. "John came out of the heart of the country, like you kids do, and he stole America's heart," Biden said. "He knew by his upbringing that ordinary Americans can do extraordinary things." Glenn's children, David and Lyn, also spoke about their dad. Lyn told the audience that when Glenn proposed to his wife, Annie, he told her," 'I can't promise you much, but I can promise you life won't be boring.' Life with you, Dad, was never boring." The service was held at Ohio State University in Columbus. Glenn founded OSU's John Glenn Institute for Public Service and Public Policy, which has since become the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. The Chamber Singers of Glenn's alma mater, Muskingum University in New Concord, Ohio, sang at the event. On Friday, Glenn's body lay in repose in a flag-draped casket in the rotunda at the Ohio statehouse, where famous and regular folks alike came to pay their respects. NASA shared a video of the public farewell, which featured a Marine honor guard watching over the body of the Marine Corps veteran, who flew 59 combat missions in World War II and 63 during the Korean War. Forty Marines escorted Glenn's body to the OSU auditorium in a public processional before Saturday's service. Glenn will be buried in a private ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on April 6, the 74th anniversary of his marriage to his wife, according to Glenn, who died December 8 at age 95, was one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts as well as a four-term senator from Ohio. In 1998, at age 77 and while still a sitting senator, he became the oldest person to fly in space when he flew on the Discovery space shuttle.

The ubiquity of online social networks has led to the phenomena of having friends that are known only through online interaction. In many cases, no physical interaction has taken place, but still people consider each other friends. This paper analyzes whether these friendships would satisfy the conditions of Aristotle's highest level of friendship-what he calls perfect friendship. Since perfect friendship manifests through a shared love of virtue, physical proximity would seem to be unnecessary at first glance. However, I argue that the nature of online interaction may preclude us from fully recognizing the virtues and vices in others to the degree necessary for perfect friendship to occur. As such, online friendships face significant obstacles against moving beyond utility or pleasure, and this has important repercussions for online interaction more generally. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

Some writers have argued that a Kantian approach to ethics can be used to justify suicide in cases of extreme dementia, where a patient lacks the rationality required of Kantian moral agents. I worry that this line of thinking may lead to the more extreme claim that euthanasia is a proper Kantian response to severe dementia (and similar afflictions). Such morally treacherous thinking seems to be directly implied by the arguments that lead Dennis Cooley and similar writers to claim that Kant might support suicide. If rationality is the only factor in valuing a human life, then the loss of that rationality (however such loss might be defined) would allow us to use essentially utilitarian thinking in order to support non-voluntary euthanasia, since the patients themselves would no longer be moral agents that demand respect. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

Complex Analysis and Operator Theory | Year: 2012

This paper gives conditions on the behavior of a sequence of holomorphic functions {f k(z)} and a strictly increasing sequence of positive integers {m k} that assures the infinite product Π f k(z mk) is strongly annular. A constructive proof is given that shows if the sequence {f k(z)} exhibits certain boundary behavior along with a uniform boundedness condition then a number p > 1 exists such that if {m k} satisfies m k+1/m k ≥ p then the above product is strongly annular. © 2010 Springer Basel AG.

Racist violence in Russia has recently become a subject of interest to scholars and analysts of Russian politics. What are the similarities and differences between racist violence in Russia and the West? How does the level of Russian racist violence compare to other societies? Do racist hate groups in Russia have similar origins to groups in the West? This article considers these questions. I first demonstrate that Russia is indeed the most dangerous country in Europe for ethnic minorities, and argue that such violence is more ‘systematic’ (structured, ideologically coherent, patterned) than in other developed societies. The high level of violence against ethnic minorities in Russia is ‘over-determined’ by a combination of post-Soviet social and economic social changes, the brutalizing consequences of a long counter-insurgency campaign, and government passivity (and sometimes complicity) in the face of racist violence and hate speech. Thus, Russia’s systematic racist violence is analytically closer to outright ethnic conflict than to a form of criminal deviance that could aptly be termed ‘hate crime’. © The Author(s) 2015

This paper discusses using the Chernobyl Incident as a case study in engineering ethics instruction. Groups of students are asked to take on the role of a faction involved in the Chernobyl disaster and to defend their decisions in a mock debate. The results of student surveys and the Engineering and Science Issues Test indicate that the approach is very popular with students and has a positive impact on moral reasoning. The approach incorporates technical, communication and teamwork skills and has many of the features suggested by recent literature. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
