Following is a funeral oration by Pericles (495BC to 429), who grew up among artists and philosophers. He speaks over the brave dead, and his speech is a recommendation to us to defend what we believe with our lives.
EIIR cypher Elizabeth II Regina
The greatest empire since Rome. It was the poet John Donne, pronounced the same as my own, born into a recusant family and later a cleric in the Church of England, who originated the famous phrase, “If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”

NO is Novus Ordo, the “reformed” Mass of 1969-70; TLM is the traditional Latin Mass. The survey was conducted in the United States.
NO 89% TLM 2%
NO 51% TLM 1%
Approve same-sex marriage
NO 67% TLM 2%
Attend Mass weekly
NO 22% TLM 99%
It would be nice to see another survey showing the breakdown by age group. I know what it will show: the majority of those attending the TLM are under 40 and the NO are over 40.

We say nine prayers after Mass. Nothing changes from Sunday to Sunday except the Epistle, Gospel, and sermon, no additions, deletions, or changes, no ad libs, pontifications, or outbursts, nothing. No one is in the sanctuary but for the priest and the altar boys, nor is any unvested person.
Since when? The Latin Mass comes to us in its exact form from the Council of Trent.
The Council was held between 1545 and 1563 in Trent (Trento, Italy). It was the 19th ecumenical council of the Catholic Church.
The essentials of the Mass come from the time of Pope Saint Victor I, AD 189-199.
It is superfluous at this point to say that His First Mass was the Last Supper, 33.
I watched a comedy skit on YouTube about two Santa Barbarians.

Doesn’t this single page of allegory make you stop and think? This is why I would rather be with young people. They loan me their books. Alexander (8) has more than 400 titles strewn all over the house, on the floor, on tables, on chairs, so many I must be careful not to slip and fall. I always return his books, for a book is more precious than all other objects. The other day during tutoring, I threw some of them over my shoulder in imitation of a stymied teacher who threw a book at a classmate.
The endings of nouns change depending on whether they are the subject or object in a sentence. Historically, one reason that Latin was taught in school was that it helped students understand English grammar.
Rachel Maddow responded to Rep. Jim Jordan’s claim that FBI whistleblowers have come to him about politically motivated, Department of Justice investigations into parents of schoolchildren and other groups. She said, “Skepticism is in order.”
She is not a lawyer, has never worked at the FBI or in law enforcement, has never served in any capacity or at any level of government, and is neither a parent nor a teacher, making her an unqualified talking head and tweeting bird.
According to Forbes, her net worth is $90 million, and her annual salary from MSNBC is $20 million. She purchased a Beverly Hills ultra-luxurious home for $29 million. It has 14 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
No, not a teacher. No, not a role model.
We need a change so that, once again, we can guide our military as a supporting deterrent to foreign threats in these areas: peace; cyber security; law enforcement; economy; infrastructure; research and development; space exploration; secure borders; illegal drugs; natural gas, coal, and oil development; agriculture; environment; education; and faith. I have documented them all in my blogs.
One of my nephews was a crew chief for the Black Hawk helicopter in Iraq at the time of Hussein’s capture. Like all those American Indian names? I do. Noble warriors.

One of the first things children learn about in school is the concept of shapes, and that’s what a polygon is — a figure with at least three straight sides and three angles. Simple polygons include triangles, squares, pentagons, and even stars. However, shapes such as circles, hearts, and moons are not polygons, because they have curves. The word comes from the Greek term polugōnos, meaning “many-angled.”
A quadratic equation involves unknown variables with an exponent no higher than the second power. See the image below. Striking fear into the hearts of many, this equation is important because solving it unlocks a world of mathematical power. The basic formula is used across almost every field of engineering, science, and business. The name comes from the Latin word quadraticus, meaning “made square.”

Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi, published by Charlesbridge, written by Cindy Neuschwander and illustrated by Wayne Geehan (copyrights 1999), is an excellent math story suitable for elementary school students and adults (like me) and features a rhyming poem.

“Benedictine monks first built a house of worship in or around 960 on the banks of the River Thames, the river that bisects the city of London, in an area that was then known as Thorny Island.
“In 1040, King Edward I, who later became known as St. Edward the Confessor, built his royal palace on a nearby tract of land. A religious monarch, Edward I decided to endow and expand the monastery.
“In addition to royals, Westminster Abbey has a famed Poets’ Corner, which includes burial crypts and memorials for legendary writers and artists including Geoffrey Chaucer, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, William Shakespeare, W. H. Auden, Jane Austen, Laurence Olivier, Lewis Carroll, T.S. Eliot, Oscar Wilde, … Charles Dickens and the Brontë sisters (Charlotte, Emily and Anne).”
Incarnated: the senses must sense, and history must be seen to be believed, just as a king must be seen to be believed.
A year ago, or so, a student explained the X-Box method to me. We ended up doing the guessing method, which is what I was taught. As far as I can determine, Quora mathematicians use the guessing method.

In addition to these general criteria, the guide [Princeton Review] also includes 50 lists of “Top 25” colleges based on a survey it conducted of 138,000 students nationwide. Extrapolations from that survey again placed the College high on those lists:
California SB 107 allows California courts to remove children from the custody of parents who are opposed to their young children undergoing irreversible medical procedures, reported the National Review. SB 107 just passed both chambers of the state legislature and sits on Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk awaiting his decision.
