even though I felt as if my main problem as an organizer, an utter inability to establish relationships with bus riders was on the way to be solved as I tried a different approach yesterday at the BRU organizing drive (for general membership), I’m skeptic on two aspects of said improvement
1. Was it really better? I first talked with a riders who had already talked with K (but then he didn’t tell me he had talked – did he want to talk more? To me he seemed to be pulling out his arguments/stories from the basic education you acquire in undegrad (chiefly, his analysis of capitalism from an almost purely economistic determinist perspective – which led to a general lack of hope towards the movement). Second I talked with a former BRU member, still supportive but not paying his dues/not attending meetings.
Hey, who’s that Yongho? Can’t recognize myself anymore – that’s so scary.
Kuwata: so can anyone explain why our EDTA chelate will only hydrolize four ions and not these (indicates possible inner hydrogen ligands) other two? Would you predict they will hydrolize as the titration is put forward or maybe during a back titration?
Yongho: Well probably it’s because of the intramolecular forces, mainly oxide groups put so close together.. and the increase of ionic radius because of hydrolysis… (bunch of inconvex facts) from which we could predict a complete octahedral chelating effect after the second titration point.
Kuwata: Actually, … you make a good point, but at the conclusion you’re completely wrong.
