Internet Links

 

The internet is a treasure trove of fascinating information.  I especially like You Tube – I can surf it for hours at a time.  As I encounter links that are relevant to the chapters and subjects that we will examine this semester, I will try to place them here so that you can go directly to them. I will add comments when I have time.

 

If you have found some internet pieces that you believe would be relevant to psychology and of interest to me or your class mates, e-mail me a link at Zykprof@Optonline.net.  In your e-mail tell me why you think the link is relevant and let me know if you want me to credit you here for sending it.

For their August, 2004, issue, Gourmet Magazine contracts with David Foster Wallace to cover the Maine Lobster Festival (MLF).  Little did they know they would end up with one of the greatest essays in modern American literature.  That it was published is a credit to the magazine, because even those who ridicule People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) may become vegans after reading this work of genius about the ethics of pain and the responsibilities of being human.
