Academic Theoretical Evaluation

academic theoretical evaluation:

there is a theory....
how true is that theory? all the time or are there exceptions? in academic life definitely the true all the time theory is preferred!

real theories simplify that which may be complex, reducing the subject matter to several key variables to be considered. in their best form these theories offer solutions to problems.

evaluating any theory requires real testing....
does it work?

those that do lift academic theories beyond the high ivory tower of the academic and into the mainstream.

Rationality in Investment

rationality in investment:

the saying buy low sell high....
this is all very well but pessimism often prevents the investor from buying at the low point, the general mood being actually so negative that it seems foolish and counter trend.

is the world about to end? or the economy? or just this sector of the market?

each sector of the market has its dominant companies, old and established, and they are the first to recover.

Protection in Relationship

protection in relationship:

in close relationships imagination plays a part. the tone and colour of their interest vary and why not? obsession is frequent and satisfaction is in knowing what happens.

tears and frustration follow on an unavoidable path. it is known that the happy times become infrequent in times of stress and there is immense pressure on individuals to perform.

latent forces between people guide the way in relationships....
who you are close to is fate. often it is hard to reconcile different aspects of the person in question. there is fine and bad.

were you protecting parts though?

To a Private Corner

to a private corner:

well it happened and then....
the chatter, the speech, the glances astray, the concerted stare
am i missing something?

as someone said once so i believed
the doubt went away
the matters ceased
what became of the person?

of my life in this frame
i cannot budge
i cannot deny that what passed
rooted to the spot

perception swells may memory become whole
