Passage follows the efforts of Joanna Lander, a research psychologist, to understand the phenomenon of near-death experiences(or NDEs) by interviewing hospital patients after they are revived following clinical death. Her work with Dr. Richard Wright, a neurologist who has discovered a way to chemically induce an artificial NDE and conduct an “RIPT” brain scan during the experience, leads her to the discovery of the biological purpose of NDEs. Science fiction scholar Gary K. Wolfe writes, “Willis tries something truly astonishing: without resorting to supernaturalism on the one hand or clinical reportage on the other, without forgoing her central metaphor, she seeks to lift the veil on what actually happens inside a dying mind.” Through Lander’s work, Dr. Wright is able to develop a medicine that brings patients back from clinical death.

Literary fiction is usually contrasted with popular, commercial, or genre fiction. Some have described the difference between them in terms of analyzing reality (literary) rather than escaping reality (popular). The contrast between these two subsets of fiction is controversial among critics and scholars.
Since its release, critics’ reception for Dogville has been polarized. Some have branded it as pretentious or incomprehensible, while others have labeled it a masterpiece. As part of the 2012 Sight & Sound polls, six critics and three directors named it one of the best films ever made.
Exegesis [ < Greek exègeisthai (to interpret) < ex- (out) + hègeisthai (to lead). Related to English ‘seek’.] Definition: To interpret a text by way of a thorough analysis of its content. When you do exegesis, you are an exegete who is exegeting the text. What you are doing is described as being exegetical. In its most basic Bible-relevant meaning, exegesis means finding out what the Spirit originally was saying through its author in that Bible passage.
The case of the 14-year old wunderkind put in handcuffs is making national news, highlighting how racism and Islamophobia are breeding hysteria even in our schools. It’s also spotlighting boneheaded behavior: instead of apologizing to Ahmed, his school dug in and defended the arrest and suspension of their award-winning engineering student.
Support for Ahmed is surging. The hashtag #IStandWithAhmed (https://twitter.com/hashtag/IStandWithAhmed?src=hash) is trending, and President Obama just tweeted “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House?” to the star student! His school needs apologize now, or fire the principal if necessary. Sign and share ASAP:
Ninth grader Ahmed Mohammed has a passion for robotics and engineering. He builds things all the time. On Sunday he made a clock and took it to show his engineering teacher at school on Monday. Another teacher saw it, said it looked like a bomb from the movies, convened a group of teachers to interrogate him, and called the police. They handcuffed Ahmed and took him to jail where he was fingerprinted, had his mug shot taken, and interrogated without a parent — against the law. Would a Texas student named Brad or Amy have received the same treatment?
Regardless of whether the school’s actions of taking the clock for a bomb and calling the police were paranoiac or due-diligence, the police had no grounds to arrest and handcuff a 14 year old in school without contacting his parents first and assessing the situation properly. The kid did not treat anyone and only showed the clock to a teacher, that assumed without other cause than racial profiling, that it was a bomb. The police knew that the device was NOT a bomb since they interrogated the child for over an hour and charged him with faking a bomb, despite the fact that he always described the device to everybody as a digital clock.
In June 2015, In McKinney, Texas, police broke a local pool party on Friday night, like if it were a burglary of some sort, harassing black kids, but leaving white ones alone, as if they were invisible. A situation between a mom and a girl broke out and when the cops showed up everyone ran, including the people who didn’t do anything. So the cops just started putting everyone on the ground and in handcuffs for no reason. This kind of force is uncalled for especially on children and innocent bystanders. In particular, a police officer put a 13 year old girl face down in the floor for no reason at all. The officer was placed on administrative leave after being filmed aggressively handcuffing, and then pulling a weapon on, a group of black teens.
The harsh treatment of teens that are handcuffed while involved in non-aggressive normal day-to-day activities contrast with the treatment given thugs actually involved in murder and a shoot out at a mall.
