 Dennett, Darwin, and Skinner Crows by Frans Blommaert and Ruud Janssen
The reason why we use this stance in daily life ('folk psychology') and in the life sciences is that it is an extremely powerful heuristic for predicting complex behavior of biological organisms.
In such cases, the distinction between the selectional and intentional stance becomes blurred (e.g., is the intentional stance implicitly selectional, is rationality or fitness constraining the observed behavior, etc.?), and the greater predictive efficiency of the intentional stance may then be a reason to favor it over the selectional stance.
Since in the intentional stance it is assumed that goal-directed behavior is 'rational', it follows that crows use a 'rational' way of foraging.

 SPICE UP YOUR LIFE ( OLD SITE! )
Spice Girls use dance-pop as a musical base, but they infused the music with a fiercely independent, feminist stance that was equal parts Madonna, post-riot grrrl alternative rock feminism, and a co-opting of the good-times-all-the-time stance of England's new lad culture.
Spice Girls' creative power overruled media scrutiny so that they could fully focus on the new R&B sound they were trying for and a the new collaboration united the foursome once again to release the third album Forever, which hit American shores in fall 2000.
Biography: Spice Girls Spice Girls were the first major British pop music phenomenon of the mid-'90s to not have a debt to independent pop/rock.

 Stance Training
Stance practice is not limited to training for the beginning student; it is a life-long practice.
Stance training requires conscious attention be paid to how much of body weight is on each foot, and how that and the placement of the feet in relation to the body and each other affects balance.
Arriving at and leaving the stance with balance and with the basic structure intact throughout the transition, is as important as the stance itself.

 Opinio Juris: Is Life Imprisonment an "Unusual" Punishment?
Second, the fact that for four years Mexico did not extradite persons who faced possible life imprisonment, reminds us that the United States is not the only state to take a dualist stance on the relationship between international and domestic law.
But on Tuesday, Mexico’s Supreme Court decided to lift a ban on extradition of persons who would be subject to life imprisonment, reversing an earlier 2001 decision that had found such extraditions violated the prohibition on “unusual penalties” in Article 22 of the Mexican Constitution.
As a result of the 2001 decision, hundreds, if not thousands of fugitives had been able to avoid extradition because U.S. prosecutors could not give assurances that life imprisonment was off the table or were unwilling to press lesser charges that did not involve such a penalty.

 Pro-life - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One such critic, U.S. Representative Barney Frank, characterized this approach as the view that "life begins at conception and ends at birth." [2] Those who label themselves as "pro-life" generally do not see their stance as contradictory.
To some, "pro-life" is a loaded term or code word: it connotes that people who oppose the political opinions it describes are against "life" and are in favor of "death", in particular in the death of an "unborn child".
The pro-life movement is generally associated with conservative Protestant and Catholic Christianity, and its activists commonly endorse that a generally Christian-based definition of life be the basis for shaping civil law.

One such critic, Congressman Barney Frank, characterized this approach as the view that "life begins at conception and ends at birth." http://www.motherjones.com/commentary/columns/2004/07/07_206.html Those who label themselves as "Pro-Life" generally do not see their stance as contradictory.
The term was coined in the early 1960s in the United States, and refers specifically to what is believed to be the life of unborn children, the subjects of abortion.
Pro-Life is the self-description for those in North America and Great Britain who are of the general political opinion that abortion, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning and other issues regarding the sanctity of life are morally wrong and should be illegal in most cases.

 Pro-life feminism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prolife feminism is a stance grounded in values of nonviolence and reverence for life, born and unborn, that can be and often are shared by people of all faiths and none.
Some have accused Feminists for Life and other such pro-life feminist groups of having little to do with feminism, pointing out their efforts seldom extend beyond opposition to abortion, and claiming they merely represent an effort by the pro-life movement to gain support with women.
Pro-life feminism shares much of this philosophy with "traditional" pro-life groups.

Meanwhile, his backers will take his new-found belief about life beginning at conception with a wink and a nod, because they know he hasn't flipped in any meaningful way and will never do anything to upset their apple cart if he does win the presidency.
This is a bit too slick, even for Hanoi John: that human life begins at conception is not an "article of faith," like the Trinity, or the Incarnation.

 BBC SPORT Football New life for Brian
Staff morale is a bit creaky, the media is after you and you are an easy target, so communicate the vision, take a stance when you need to and be decisive.
Brian Barwick needs to find a winning streak in public relations terms as fast as possible - both within the game, where its credibility has been shaken, and outside, where the perception of a self-serving organisation rooted in the past and riven by vested interests pervades.
Admittedly, this is an ambition that is going to take a bit more than just an effective chief executive to achieve but don't forget that the public will forgive you absolutely anything if you pull it off - and you'll be Sir Brian before you retire.

 Sociology of Religion: The Catholic "Consistent Life Ethic" and Attitudes Toward Capital Punishment and Welfare Reform
In this paper, we investigate a very specific case of political advocacy by religious leaders: the promotion by Catholic Bishops of the "consistent life ethic." This ideology integrates a pro-life stance on abortion with positions on other sociopolitical issues that are also conceptualized by the Bishops as life-affirming.
The consistent life ethic is perhaps most strongly associated with Joseph Bernardin, the late Cardinal of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
We argue, however, that success of consistent life advocacy is best evaluated in terms of the strength of association between attitudes toward abortion and other issues.

 Completely Pro-Life: Building a Consistent Stance at the iCount Store
However, first time explorers of a consistent life ethic must be aware that it is the consistent pro-lifers who are generally the more diverse of the pro-life movement.
Yet, he doesn't go far enough in explaining and exploring the consistent life ethic to suit me. As is to be expected, Sider's book has a tight Christian focus on the issues, which for the Christian is fine.
Ron Sider's book is unique because it addresses a consistent pro-life ethic and that is something that is woefully neglected in the politics of pro-life activism and entirely ignored by pro-abortion activists.

 The Simple Life (Eller)
By "the simple life," we are going to start saying now and continue saying until the very end, we mean to designate that stance toward possessions and "things" that was recommended, taught, and practiced by Jesus--only this and nothing other than this, even though something other might seem to qualify under the rubric.
Of course, the simple life is by no means the on dialectical teaching to be found in Christianity; and, indeed, we will discover several different dialectics operating within the simple life itself.
And even more so with the simple life than with the carriage, it will be completely impossible to set down a hard, fast, universally applicable law as to how much lantern light is contributive and how much constitutes an obscuring of the view.

 The Simple Life (Eller)

But that the doctrine of the simple life is by nature dialectical means only that the concept is complex rather than simple (in the technical meaning of those terms); it is not to say that either the understanding or the practice of it must be complicated.
If someone were to claim that the simple life is that life which wants to go all the way with inner relationship to God and so deny the need for appropriate outward expression, that would be proof enough that the inner relationship itself lacks probity.

 Ahern's Law Could Tighten Pro-life Stance
Bertie Ahern, the Irish prime minister, who could garner strong support from the pro-life lobby in the general election in May, is vehemently against abortion.
This referendum is a government attempt to introduce a constitutional amendment affirming that a threat of suicide is not a ground for abortion, and that anyone aiding or procuring an abortion will be liable for 12 years in prison.
The Irish Republic's strict anti-abortion laws could be tightened further to give suicidal women who try to end their pregnancies 12-year jail terms - a longer sentence than most rapists - if the government wins next Wednesday's referendum.

The unity of this party Plekhanov would spend the rest of his life defending, save for when the Soviet Government was established, when he disavowed the left half of the party: the Bolsheviks.
During the first World War, Plekhanov took what Lenin dubbed a social-chauvinist stance: that German victory would be disasterous for the world's proletariat, but an entente victory would be much better for the world's proletariat.
Instead of revising his theories in accord with the new developments of history, Plekhanov stuck to them and defended them admist a now much larger chorus of attackers: his theories were rapidly being discarded into the dustbin of history.
