Why is it when we talk to God we are praying, but when God talks to us we are put into the loony bin? Why is toilet bowl cleaning liquid only blue? Why isn’t chocolate considered a vegetable, if chocolate comes from cocoa beans, and all beans are a vegetable? Why is there that little space inside strawberries, as if it was meant for a pit, and then the seeds are on the outside? If heat rises, then shouldn’t hell be cold? If a fork were made of gold would it still be considered silverware? How come you play at a recital, but recite at a play? Why is chopsticks one of the easiest songs to play on the piano, but the hardest thing to eat with?

Z What is a patron saint? Patron saints are chosen as special protectors or guardians over areas of life. These areas can include occupations, illnesses, churches, countries, causes — anything that is important to us. The earliest records show that people and churches were named after apostles and martyrs as early as the fourth century. Recently, the popes have named patron saints but patrons can be chosen by other individuals or groups as well.
Patron saints are often chosen today because an interest, talent, or event in their lives overlaps with the special area. Angels can also be named as patron saints.

With time, it became apparent that this classification scheme was much too simple. A fourth category, known as spontaneous fission, also had to be added to describe the process by which certain radioactive nuclides decompose into fragments of different weight. Alpha decay is usually restricted to the heavier elements in the periodic table. Only a handful of nuclides with atomic numbers less than 83 emit an -particle.
The product of -decay is easy to predict if we assume that both mass and charge are conserved in nuclear reactions.
AM radio technology enabled pilots to coordinate with ground control, but poor signal and radio interference caused frequent errors.
Use in the Armed Forces You may have noticed that many english letters sound similar. For most of us, this sort of error might cause a mislabeled package shipment or a misspelled dinner invitation. However, for a soldier or fighter pilot, a misheard command or radio signal can mean life or death. Therefore, radio operators in the armed services often rely on the military alphabet when sending codes or relaying important information.
This ensures clear communication, regardless of background noise or radio interference. Some popular expressions include: Use Outside the Military Military alphabet has also proven a very useful tool in civilian life. Here are just a few examples: This is to avoid confusion with Delta Airlines. This is sometimes known as the Aviation Alphabet.
The Cockney Alphabet
The Croats using the Glagolitic alphabet were the only nation in Europe who was given a special permission by Pope Innocent IV in to use their own language and this script in liturgy. More precisely, this permission had formally been given to the bishop Philip of Senj. However, special care accorded by the Vatican to the Glagolitic liturgy in subsequent centuries even by publishing several Glagolitic missals in Rome , shows that this privilege applied to all Croatian lands using the Glagolitic liturgy, mostly along the coast.
As is well known, the Latin had been the privileged language in religious ceremonies in the Catholic Church until the 2nd Vatican Synod held in , when it was decided to allow vernacular national languages to be used in the Catholic liturgy instead of Latin. It is interesting that even today the Glagolitic liturgy is used in some Croatian churches. The Rules of St.
Other versions probably developed from it.
Special thanks to Sam Byford and James Chae for their help in assembling this playlist. Essentially, the song is a comical swipe against the type of image that most K-Pop stars portray. Although the song is sung in Korean, the music is as pure a slice of modern American pop as anything in the states. And the video is really rather funny, in any language. In , he got busted for trying to weasel out of mandatory military service and as a result was inducted into the ROK Army, where he remained until summer His albums have been dogged by controversy: Grimes, a Canadian musician that lies on the more interesting and experimental edge of the rock spectrum, discussed the appeal of the artist in a recent NME blog entry.
The qualities that typify a K-Pop song, according to JD Relic , an in-house songwriter and producer for Marcan Entertainment, are more or less universal. In Asia, karaoke is so huge. One thing that we’ve noticed is that if you have a song that’s really singable it’s more likely to be a hit, because people can go to the karaoke lounge and sing your song. But if it’s really complicated, it’s harder to sing and enjoy.
It is closely related to the Phoenician script. The find is attributed to the mid th century BCE. Gezer calendar The script of the Gezer calendar ,   dated to the late 10th century BCE, bears strong resemblance to contemporaneous Phoenician script from inscriptions at Byblos. The 8th-century Hebrew inscriptions exhibit many specific and exclusive traits, leading modern scholars to conclude that already in the 10th century BCE the Paleo-Hebrew script was used by wide scribal circles.
Even though very few 10th-century Hebrew inscriptions have been found, the quantity of the epigraphic material from the 8th century onward shows the gradual spread of literacy among the people of the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah. In a Phoenician inscription in 22 lines was found among the ruins of Sidon.

Greek diacritics In the polytonic orthography traditionally used for ancient Greek, the stressed vowel of each word carries one of three accent marks: These signs were originally designed to mark different forms of the phonological pitch accent in Ancient Greek. By the time their use became conventional and obligatory in Greek writing, in late antiquity, pitch accent was evolving into a single stress accent , and thus the three signs have not corresponded to a phonological distinction in actual speech ever since.
In addition to the accent marks, every word-initial vowel must carry either of two so-called “breathing marks”: In , a new, simplified orthography, known as “monotonic”, was adopted for official use in Modern Greek by the Greek state. It uses only a single accent mark, the acute also known in this context as tonos, i. The polytonic system is still conventionally used for writing Ancient Greek, while in some book printing and generally in the usage of conservative writers it can still also be found in use for Modern Greek.
Romanization of Greek There are many different methods of rendering Greek text or Greek names in the Latin script.
A reader directed me to a wonderful website called ” Omniglot, a guide to writing systems “, which illustrates examples of various alphabets of the world. It is commonly thought that the Etruscan and Latin alphabets were sources, but as you will see below, there may have been others, also. All of the data that follows are from the information and graphics from the Omniglot website.

It was adapted from the Etruscan alphabet during the 7th century BC.
