Four domain link pages updated

The four links pages are [no longer!] still out there and recent interest prompted a review. Given the total number of links included, it is no surprise how url domains are taken over - vape, fitness... It felt good using a links checker and finding and deleting these 'broken' sites and some that are plain dead-ends: the 'domain for sale'. There may be a few more to sort in there...

The pages are archaic in terms of approach - they are not responsive but the format is fine on a desktop and should work on a tablet. The pages started in 1997-98, you don't do this now! People search in real-time for what they need. Besides not everyone may agree with the subjects I have included and the domain in which I have placed them? What is missing?

The intention is to indicate as with another resource the potential scope of Hodges' model in the knowledge and subjects that can be encompassed. I'm not sure of the longer term future of these pages, as I look to new hosting for Drupal.

Over the coming months I will emphasise research, TEL - technology enhanced learning, e-learning and Drupal resources.

Keen to reduce the maintenance overhead, two rows have been removed and categories moved about. As a result there are a couple of 'vacant' columns in there.

In the future I need to investigate the full ramifications of SEO search engine optimization. I receive many requests offering SEO services, and to add links. Given the demanding update task if I can add a few paid links this will help me fund conference travels and studies. ...

As I return to revising my latest essay I'll let you grab a drink and browse, enjoy...(?)

Compare and contrast potential - Energy for Change Index and Hodges' model

The biopsychosocial model is quite all encompassing used as it is to help explain and represent pain, explain human development and balance the physical excesses of psychiatry.

For all its scope the biopsychosocial model is two domains short of Hodges' model.

Hodges' model is dated though, a child of the mid-1980s. The biopsychosocial model predates Hodges' and as models of nursing have fallen out of favour in terms of the attention they receive the biopsychosocial is subjected to critique as per:

Ghaemi, S.N. (2009). The rise and fall of the biopsychosocial model. Br J Psychiatry.195(1):3–4.

Hatala, A.R. (2012). The status of the “biopsychosocial” model in health psychology: Towards an integrated approach and a critique of cultural conceptions. Open Journal of Medical Psychology, 1, 51-62. doi: 10.4236/ojmp.2021.14009
A cursory check reveals a diverse and current literature on the biopsychosocial model. If this is positive for the general role of 'models' in health and social care education and learning then there is another encouraging source in the five energies for change with its five domains:
  • Spiritual
  • Social
  • Physical
  • Psychological
  • Intellectual
There is great similarity with Hodges' model although in h2cm the spiritual combines all the four domains of which the political also replaces the intellectual. I would equate the intellectual with the psychological, accepting of course the existence of individual and group psychologies. Being intellectual and becoming intellectual to the extent of an individual realising their potential has long been recognised as a political matter and consequence (Freire). As such the Political domain within Hodges' model is central to its relevance within the field of engagement and innovation and beyond.

Whilst the energy for change domains have a specific derivation and (instrumental) purpose I would suggest that a possible strength for Hodges' might lie in the notion (which it is) that there is an underlying conceptual structure from which the domains arise. This structure might support the model's application in time, as well as assuring its longevity and the stamina of its champion.

C/o BBC: Bolivian Congress clock changed to turn anti-clockwise

The clock displayed on the Bolivian Congress building, located in the city of La Paz, has been re-set to run in reverse.

Its hands turn left and the numbers have been inverted to go from one to twelve to the left.

It's the latest measure taken by the government of President Evo Morales to promote the indigenous identity of the Andean country. ...

A Fresh Start: Ctrl + Alt + Delete - Neatorama

One of the programmers’ pet peeves was that whenever the computer encountered a coding glitch, they had to manually restart the entire system. Turning the machine back on automatically initiated a series of memory tests, which stole valuable time. “Some days, you’d be rebooting every five minutes as you searched for the problem,” Bradley says. The tedious tests made the coders want to pull their hair out.

So Bradley created a keyboard shortcut that triggered a system reset without the memory tests. He never dreamed that the simple fix would make him a programming hero, someone who’d someday be hounded to autograph keyboards at conferences. And he didn’t foresee the command becoming such an integral part of the user experience.
