  • i need a good name for a dystopian school?

    I am writing a short story of a dystopian world and need a good name for the school the characters attend. The story itself will revolve around ideas of racism and classism. Any ideas are appreciated. Think 1984 meets Walden Two meets Fahrenheit 451 meets Slaughter House Five...

  • Anthropology undergrad with no clue about career options?

    So backstory: I am officially half way through my junior year as an anthro undergrad. I currently have an associates in social science and a "certificate" (not entirely sure what it is) in international studies from a 2 year communtiy college. I have worked in the medical field for the past 6 years and have extensive training and knowledge in medical administration/ insurance company dealings... I also have taught english as a second language before. I DO NOT want to be an administrative assistant anymore (hence why I went back in the first place) and I know I have the option to teach english abroad after graduation but I don't want to pigeonhole my career choices. I am fully aware I most likely will not work within my field with just the bachelor's degree and anthropology is such a broad field with training in a ton of of areas that I am having trouble narrowing down my career search. I would like to have some ideas before scheduling an appointment with my advisors/ career center at school. I also have a book about careers for anthropology majors but haven't had a chance to really read it yet. Also I would like to do an internship as well and again not sure even what kind of internship I am looking for but any information regarding this would also be extremely useful... Or any websites that offer career help other than monster and career builder?

    soooooooo any advice is greatly appreciated, especially if you majored in anthropology and have a job... thank you

  • anthropology program?

    So I am currently finishing up an associates in social sciences with an emphasis in history. I will be officially finished in August, however in the meantime I need to decide on which school to attend in the fall. My choices are between Drexel University, Temple University and Arcadia University. I am completely aware that to properly answer this question you need to know what my ultimate career goals are; honestly I am as lost today as when I resolved to go back to school. At any rate I have chosen anthropology as a major as I would like the opportunity to travel and do my photography on the side (I know photographers are a dime a dozen these days) I am leaning toward a possible career within journalism, maybe education or possibly marketing; it covers a range of disciplines which will provide training in each area. I like the idea of Temple's general anthropology program with a minor in visual anthropology. I love the idea of Drexel's co-op and internship for the networking and its ranking as a school. But Arcadia offers a specific cultural anthropology program with a focus on ethnography which is the area of anthropology that interests me the most. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Also side notes Temple is the cheapest tuition wise, Arcadia second, then Drexel- I have not yet received my financial aid package estimate from Drexel so I am not certain of its final costs. Also side note again, as far as internships and study abroad I this two things are my top priority all three offer opportunities, Temple's seem more interesting, Drexel's seem more career oriented which may be just what I need this late in the game.

    In the end if you were going to hire a recent anthropology graduate which school would most grab your attention from the three?

  • Currently in school for anthropology...?

    So I am currently in school for anthropology with an associates in social sciences. I have a pretty good idea of the type of work I would like to do, and I do not want to shut any doors. I would like to do some type of photoethnography I know HIGHLY competitive, most likely not lucrative, but that is neither here nor there as I am well aware I will have to pay my dues ect and am quite comfortable earning a low income at first or using this field as a second job for a while if need be. So with practicality in mind I am looking into masters programs that are not exactly strictly anthropology related so I am more marketable to non-anthropology jobs as well as anthropology jobs. I was considering sociology, but figured I would pose the question here to get some advice for my path. Ultimately I would like to do something more in the journalistic field (mainly photojournalism) in respect to cultures/photoethnography (like National Geographic- who recommends a degree in various disciplines none of which are journalism or photography) I have two years left to figure out what masters program will be right for me so I have time to think about it, but I would like to use this time to make myself a more desirable candidate for the program as well as test the waters out a bit by taking a class or two... other info: I currently have a GPA of 3.65 (may go up after fall grades go in) an associates in social sciences, and some photography courses- planning on taking a couple more... Any insight is greatly appreciated...

    Cheers.

  • 26 and thinking about breast augmentation?

    So I have smaller than an A cup breasts, and one is noticeably smaller than the other. I have struggled with this since puberty, and have always been uncomfortable about it. That said I have made the decision to start putting money toward the surgery and have not scheduled any consults for it yet. I was wondering what some women's views were who have already had the surgery. Any advice is greatly appreciated, and please only women who have had this done. Also rough estimations on how much the average cost is currently and recovery time is appreciated.

  • what type of role did the gods play in the epic of gilgamesh?

    I have read certain excerpts for my Western Civilizations class. This is what I think the gods roles were:

    They favored Gilgamesh, others however listened to the prayers of the girls of Uruk who complained that Gilgamesh mistreated them. As a result the goddess Aruru under the direction of Anu gives birth to the Enkidu who at first is a wild person living on the steppe with the beasts but is later Gilgamesh's beloved friend whose death spirals Gilgamesh into grief. So he seeks out eternal life and meets Utanapishtan who not only tells him he cannot live forever if he cannot stay awake for seven days (which he cannot) but also tells him where to find the plant of rejuvenation (which he loses). He is sent back to Uruk with Urshanabi the boatman never to return to Utanapishtan again.

    It seems to me that the gods mostly intervene with Gilgamesh to ensure that he is a good and proper ruler to his people. When he goes on his rampage Anu tells Aruru to give birth to Enkiduso that Gilgamesh will have a friend (and I assume stop his rampages- this particular part is not complete in my text book so I am not entirely sure) and after visiting with Utanapishtan he is given the location of the plant to help with his grief and I assume to give him longevity despite the fact that his grief was unseemly because of his favor from the gods. He was also commanded to return with the boatman Urshanabi and at the end he is showing him around Uruk much in the same was Enkidu was shown Uruk, so I believe this is another instance where the gods had bestowed on him a friend. I believe his mother was some type of divine cow and he is in such good shape that he most resembles the first perfect human produced by the gods.

    If I am missing anything or the point of the gods role entirely please let me know. Thank you.

  • my purse was stolen and i have to get on a plane with no id what can i do?

    so i am in hawaii and my purse was stolen from the sheraton hotel on waikiki beach (don't give me any nonsense about leaving bags unattended the purse was literally right next to me.. and i know i am oblivious to my surroundings and need to work on that) so i now am in hawaii in the middle of the pacific with no id, no cash, no credit cards- nothing that says who i am... that said i filed a police report and the cop gave me a HANDWRITTEN form about the incident and told me that it was all i needed to get on my plane... i just cannot believe that all i need will be a handwritten piece of paper especially with all of the new tsa regulations.... so that said what can i do, if i request a new id from harrisburg they said it will be 6-8 weeks before i will receive it and i asked if i could send a family member to pick it up for me and they said no... any tsa workers that know about this or has this happened to anyone please help... serious responses only please
