FUNNY USELESS FACTS


Akrasia

Akrasia is the state of acting against one's better judgment. Examples of akrasia include procrastination and inability to form strong cooperating communities.

Note that, for example, if you are procrastinating because it's not in your best interest to complete the task you are delaying, it is not a case of akrasia.
Bad things are going to happen in your life, people will hurt you, disrespect you, play with your feelings.. But you shouldn't use that as an excuse to fail to go on and to hurt the whole world.

You will end up hurting yourself and wasting your precious time. Don't always think of revenging, just let things go and move on with your life
.
Remember everything happens for a reason and when one door closes,
the other opens for you with new blessings and love.





Dialectic

Some examples of dialectical thinking include thinking of passivity and aggression, considering impulsivity and withdrawal, looking at love and hate as well as reviewing different answers to morality questions. Dialectical thinking is when a person examines or holds two polar opposite thoughts.

Eudaimonia

Eudaimonia is often translated as "happiness," but that's a bit misleading. Eudaimonia comes from two Greek words:

Eu-: good
Daimon: soul or "self." A difficult word to translate into English.

In Greek philosophy, Eudaimonia means achieving the best conditions possible for a human being, in every sense-not only happiness, but also virtue, morality, and a meaningful life. It was the ultimate goal of philosophy: to become better people—to fulfill our unique potential as human beings. Aristotle wrote about the idea the most, and it was important to many Greek philosophers, from Socrates, the father of Greek philosophy, through to Stoicism, a late-Greek philosophy.

You can achieve Eudaimonia, Aristotle argued, by working hard, cultivating your virtues, and excelling at whatever tasks nature and circumstances come to you. However, Aristotle also wrote that living in the right kind of place and balancing your activities with wisdom are essential to achieving Eudaimonia as well.

Logic

Here is an example:

  • Premise 1: Either that's a gun in your pocket, or you're glad to see me.
  • Premise 2: Uh... that's not a gun in your pocket.
  • Conclusion: So you must be glad to see me.
The study of logic, therefore, is the effort to determine the conditions under which one is justified in passing from the premises to the conclusion that logically must follow them. When an argument has this sort of justification, it is a valid argument. A valid argument with true premises is a sound argument, and guarantees the truth of its conclusion.

Phenomenology

Phenomenology is a way of thinking about ourselves. Instead of asking about what we really are, it focuses on phenomena. These are experiences that we get from the senses - what we see, taste, smell, touch, hear, and feel. Phenomenology does not ask if what we are seeing is actually there, for example it is not where we see an object either in real life, a dream or a hallucination that is important but it is the significance of the object that is important to the phenomenologist. It also does not ask if we are missing something, or if we have all the facts. Instead, phenomenologists  believe we should look at the world just as it appears to us.

A child is considered incorrigible when the child repeatedly or habitually disobeys the direction of the child's lawful parents, guardians, or legal custodians.

Juvenile Incorrigibility Laws: Refusal to Obey Parents

If a child's disobedience is severe enough that he or she is found to be incorrigible, there may be serious legal consequences.

Typically, claims of incorrigibility begin with a statement by a parent, guardian or others. In some cases, a defense attorney may be necessary in to represent the child. The parent, guardian, custodian, child therapist, or other individual may petition a prosecutor to take action against the disobedient youth.

If your child's therapist or another authority petitioned the state against your child, you can hire a defense attorney on your child's behalf. If you believe your child is actually incorrigible, you can contact a prosecutor or juvenile intake officer.

It is easy enough to confuse a disobedient child with an incorrigible child, but the two are not the same. Incorrigibility refers to more than just simple refusal to obey parents' wishes; it means that a child is repeatedly refusing to obey parents, school authorities, legal authorities, and posted legal standards.

What is Incorrigibility?

There are basically three parts to the definition of incorrigibility. To be incorrigible, your child's actions must occur repeatedly and be disruptive, dangerous, disobedient, and in direct violation of lawful commands. One or two instances of disobedience could just be a part of growing up or being a teenager. Repeated, regularly occurring acts of disobedience may constitute a real problem.

The child's actions must also threaten the welfare, order, and/or safety of the environment and those near the child. Disorderly conduct in school, as well as drug or alcohol use, would fall into this category.

Finally, the orders that the child is violating must be legal commands. A child cannot be found incorrigible for disobeying illegal orders such as those that force the child to commit a crime or submit to being abused or hurt. Commands that violate the child's rights, such as his or her religious freedom, are also unlawful.
Punishments for Incorrigibility

If the court finds your child to be incorrigible, there are several things that could happen. The court could apply one or more punishments in your child's case; punishments depend on your situation. Speak to a defense attorney for specific information and potential punishments regarding your child's Fort Lauderdale case.

The lightest punishment is fines. The amount of the fine is determined on a case by case basis, and is calculated relevant to property damage or other offenses committed by the child. You could be held liable for the fines and costs associated with your child's punishment.

Your child might also be put on probation. This means that they will need to meet with a probation officer and obey the terms of the probation. The court could require your child to abide by a curfew, perform community service, and/or see a counselor, for example. You could also be found liable for the costs associated with seeing a therapist or counselor.

Finally, in the most severe cases, your child could be sentenced to a juvenile detention center. The length of the sentence would depend on your child's individual case.
