  Nomination for Principal
Yesterday news was passed round Carey staff and students that Charles Hewlett is being nominated by the search committee to the Baptist Assembly as the new principal of Carey Baptist College. Today the news has been sent round the churches. I imagine that everyone who knows Charles is delighted by the choice :) If you do not know Charles you can watch this video of a sermon of his:

If you want to show it to a group, why not buy the DVD? It is from a series of homegroup resources on the sermon on the mount.

  Blame the architect
Joan Meyers-Levy, a professor of marketing at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management and co-author Rui (Juliet) Zhuhas have apparently demonstrated that my "free and abstract" thinking is not just because I am a wacky nutter, but because of the way my office is built. (Incidentally for those who know Carey George and Martin have the same unnatural advantage!
“When a person is in a space with a 10-foot ceiling, they will tend to think more freely, more abstractly,” said Meyers-Levy. “They might process more abstract connections between objects in a room, whereas a person in a room with an 8-foot ceiling will be more likely to focus on specifics.”

From Researchers find ceiling height can affect how a person thinks, feels and acts
HT The End of Cyberspace

My office has a ceiling that is at least 16 feet high, and perhaps more! See The View from my Office.

PS, don't worry, the marking is nearly over... and then I will return to blogging about the Bible, scholarship and digital life in a more coherent and sensible way ;-)

  Cool tool: Use a map
Thanks to Jane's E-Learning Pick of the Day for pointing out Useamap, you can generate shareable maps, like this one for our bach - be envious, be very envious! If anyone is thinking of visiting Carey we are here, convenient for the motorway... and if you are looking for inspiration in Auckland try the BBC!
