It was January 17, 2005 and three cadets are training to become police detectives. The sergeant
decides to test they were skill at recognizing a suspect. He show the first cadet a picture for five
seconds and then hides it. Then he says, “That was your suspect, how would you recognize
him?”
“That’s easy, answered the cadet. “We would find him fast because he only has one eye.
The sergeant thinks a minute and then answered, “Well that’s because the picture I showed you
is a profile. It shows only a side view.” He can’t believed the cadet had given him such a
ridiculous answer, but he goes on to the second cadet. Flashing the picture for five seconds to
him. Again, he asks, “That was your suspect, how would you recognize him?”
The second cadet smiled and says, “It would be easy to catch, because he has only one ear!”
The police sergeant shakes his head in disbelief. Then angrily responded, “What’s the matter
with you two? Of course, only one eye and one ear are showing, it’s a picture of his profile! Was
that the best answer you can come up with?!”
Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the 3rd cadet and in a very testy voice
asked, “This is your suspect. How would you recognize him?” He quickly adds, “Think hard
before giving me a stupid answer.”
The cadet looks at the picture intently for a moment. Then she said, “The suspect wears contact
lenses.”
The sergeant is speechless. He goes to his office checked the suspects file in his computer and
comes back. He is beaming. “Its true! The suspect does indeed wear contact lenses. Tell us how
you were able to make such an astute observation!
“It was easy,” said the cadet. “He can’t wear glasses because he only has one eye and one ear.”

Excerpt from page 23 of an article in 2011 by
William Ellis entitled “Culture in Transition.”
World problems such as poverty, pollution, war, and hunger are inherent in the current system
of world order based on nation
states and economic competition. They can be solved if people
know and understand
one another on a global, grass
roots basis. By developing people
to
people linkages irrespective of national borders, we can start to ameliorate global tensions and
inequities.

erts that world problems such as poverty, pollution, war, and hunger are
inherent in the current system of world order based on nation

_____Glob

grass

23).
_____Ellis (2011) argues that global problems are often a result of exploitation inherent in
economic competition. He contends that “grass roots….peo

to people linkages irrespective
of national borders” can do much to ease global tensions (p. 23).
_____Economic competition is at the basis of many of the world’s problems (Ellis 23). Only by
seeing ourselves as a single family without the separation
of national boundaries can world
tensions begin to be eased.
_____Ellis (2011) argues that world problems are caused by overpopulation and that the only
possible solution is an enforced tax on families who have more than one child (p. 23).

Activity 1:

For a long time, my stepson, Jonathan, was unhappy to have me as part of his family, for he resented that he didn’t have both biological parents at home. I tried to get to know him better, but he would complain that I invaded his privacy. As a newcomer, I understood that our relationship would require effort from both of us. It was not enough that I was friendly. Jonathan also had to want us to be friends, and I was not happy with the two of us being strangers, but I can wait for him to feel more comfortable around me.

Activity 2:

Anne Marie collects antique bottles and loves to turn them into works of art. She will buy bottles if she like them, but she prefers to find them in the ground. She will find bottles everywhere, but she picks them selectively. However, she has the best luck at construction sites on old farmland, where she spends most of her time. Often, bottles appear on the surface after a good rain, but they disappear very soon. She will use special tools for excavating bottles, including a set of brushes. She does not want to break the bottles as she removes them from the ground. After finding a new bottle, Anne Marie will add it to her display case and hung on the wall as an artistic piece (Mangelsdorf, 2013, p. 411).
