When the federal government exercises a particularly dangerous power not delegated to it, the countries must refuse to allow its enforcement within their borders. Nullification defies the unexamined premise of the entire political spectrum, according to which society must be organized with a single, irresistible power center issuing infallible commands from the top.

Europeans consider the European Union null and void confederation, because they did not vote for any constitutional treaty! Eurokleptocrats pulled off the biggest powergrab in history by imposing a camouflaged constitution, bypassing all nonos. The Nazi dream for Europe was finally fullfilled - ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer - one people, one empire, one leader.

The Lisbon Treaty is Eurokleptocracy's Pyrrhic victory. It created a confederation, Fourth Reich, without a popular foundation. EU lacks legitimacy among Europeans. Eurokleptocrats created a situation where the citizens of slave States live their lives with a resigned feeling that the EU project is not their own.

Vatstruck Fourthreichians are looking for a Moses to liberate them from the yoke of Brussels. They have to do it now, before a new imposed treaty between Eurokleptocrats tie their hands forever. The same thing might happen with Britons and Greeks. Infinite infinitesimal amendments to treaties might accumulate over time, leading to huge changes of original intent, enslaving all Fourthreichians to Brussels forever!

Greenland was the first country to secede from Fourth Reich. The Lisbon Treaty introduces a secession clause. A slave State may notify the Fourthreichian Council that it wishes to secede, upon which secession negotiations begin; if no other agreement is reached, the hateful Lisbon Treaty ceases to apply to the seceding State two years after such notification. Taxes are armed robbery, pure and simple.

Let's get rid of all taxes now. Montse Jaso commented: gracias esther por ser asi, me he emociado con la cancion es una de mis preferidas.

We stand in defiance against all those Graecokleptocrats who try to suppress the growing movement of Greek people standing up for their rights, facing down injustice, and offering hope for a better world.

Please show your solidarity and defiance by wearing blue and white, the colors of the Greek flag. The impunity of the Graecokleptocrats of the Grand Brothel on Syntagma Square is the most freakish thing on Earth.

Graecokleptocrats are the 1 enemy of the Greek people. That's why Graecokleptocrats are scared to walk on the streets of Athens. They know Athenians will attack them!

Kleptocracy, perjury, and cybercop brutality are galloping in Greece, the most corrupt country of Fourth Reich, but Premier George Papandreou of October infamy speaks no evil, hears no evil, and sees no evil.

Selective hearing is a symptom of the cancer of kleptocracy! Premier George Papandreou of Graecokleptocracy crossed the Rubicon on Περαστικά - Τερμίτες - Τα Καλυτερα Τραγουδια Τους (CD) 18,when a deranged Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs destroyed a distinguished professor and dissident blogger, in order to appease Premier Erdogan of Turkey! In approving the fourth tranche of Greece's emergency loan package, worth fifteen billion euros, the troika warned that Greece would have to speed up its reforms and to sell fifty billion euros worth of state assets, including public property.

Tunisians and Egyptians got rid of their kleptocrats. Now it's Περαστικά - Τερμίτες - Τα Καλυτερα Τραγουδια Τους (CD) time for Greeks to get rid of Graecokleptocrats. A military exercise of the Greek Army, code-named Kallimachos, meaning good warrior, are taking place at the Koromila base in the township of Argyroupolis, in northern Kilkis prefecture. The exercise focuses on controlling the expected revolt of the Greek people against Graecokleptocrats and brutal cybercops.

The exercise is held within the framework of training by the army's 71st airborne brigade, which forms the basis of HELBROC 4, an EU battlegroup to control espected revolts in the Balkans. Papandreou is the premier of Graecokleptocracy, and Samaras is the leader of opposition.

Papandreou participated in the kleptocratic government of Costas Simitis, and Samaras participated in the kleptocratic government of Costas Caramanlis. They are very good friends, but in public it's their job to accuse each other.

Love in private, hate in public! Atlas shrugged in Graecokleptocracy. Greeks, robbed at gunpoint by Graecokleptocrats, survive by schemes, fraud, sinecures, and mugging each other. Rousfeti means expensive political favors, which pervade everything from hiring public employees to property deals. Tax evaders and law breakers receive visits from officials eager to collect kickbacks. In return for leaving the guilty untouched, officials receive fakelaki, envelope containing bribe in cash.

Desperate Greeks now pray for either anarchy or a new dictatorship! Gregory means fast in Greek. Gregory's tax is fakelaki for fast service. Without it, you will wait forever! All Athenians know very well that without Gregory they will have to wait many months before a state IKA physician could see them. If you want a surgery, you might have to give the IKA surgeon a 5, euros kickback, that beloved Gregory!

The surgeon would ask you how is Gregory. If you do not present Gregory, you will have to come back to IKA months later to answer the same question. If Gregory is not fat enough, the IKA surgeon might pseudoforget his scissors inside you! Graecokleptocracy has to deal with its debt in a timely manner.

Graecokleptocracy faces the typical debt trap, a situation where the existing debt is so large that new investors are discouraged from coming with new funds. This is what a debt trap looks like. At percent, the debt chokes growth and employment. And if you don't have growth and employment, Graecokleptocracy will not be able to sustain this. Graecokleptocracy has not in place a policy approach that allows it to deliver high growth and overcome its debt overhang.

Graecokleptocracy needs a stronger response that goes from liquidity support to both liquidity and solvency support. One possibility is that Fourth Reich helps with the debt overhang by refinancing existing debt with grants. Another possibility is to impose a haircut on creditors. There is also the approach whereby Fourth Reich helps Graecokleptocracy buy back its debt at a discount. Graecokleptocracy needs to have an economy that is more competitive so that it can grow at a high and sustainable rate.

So it has to decide if it can it do this through either an internal devaluation or an external devaluation. An internal devaluation means cutting wages and salaries, increasing the retirement age, etc.

An external devaluation means delinking for a while from the euro and then coming back at a sustainable level. Merciless Marilizard, Ministress of Minidip, terrorizes Graecoblogosphere.

Amin recalled some of the violent scenes she had watched on her television screen in previous days. One scene that kept flashing before her was the pro-Mubarak men on horseback who had stormed through the crowd, using their whips to terrorize the protesters.

It was like a scene from medieval times. Amin's cell phone rang and she jumped at the sound. It was a colleague from work asking why she was late. Amin told her that she had stopped several times at checkpoints but would be joining her shortly. Amin parked in the Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel, which is only a few meters away from the Περαστικά - Τερμίτες - Τα Καλυτερα Τραγουδια Τους (CD). It's close to the TV building too, and she wanted to walk the remainder of the way to work.

Even then Amin hadn't realized that her legs would take her directly to the square as if her body had been hypnotised by the cries of the demonstrators. When Amin got to the square, she knew she couldn't leave. Amin took her phone out of her bag and wrote her boss a message. Instead of informing him that she would be late for work, Amin found herself writing the following words: Forgive me.

I Remember - Tom Shoemaker - I Remember / Promise Her Anything (Vinyl)

On a good day you could look out to sea and spot a grey whale or watch the otters and sea-lions sunning themselves. And even when rain lashed the island, many people still thought it was heaven on earth. He walked a little way into town, then turned off towards one of the wharfs. A dilapidated twelve-metre-long sailing-boat was anchored there. Davie owned it, but he had been reluctant to pay for it to be repaired, so Anawak lived there for a peppercorn rent.

His real home was a tiny apartment in Vancouver city but he only used it if he had business in town. He went below deck, picked up a bundle of papers and walked back to the station. He got in, started the engine and drove to the Wickaninnish Inn, a top-class hotel a few kilometres out of town on a rocky promontory with breathtaking views of the ocean.

The cloud was breaking up, revealing patches of blue. A well-maintained road led through the dense forest and he drove for ten minutes. When he came to a little car park he left his vehicle and continued on foot, past enormous dead tree-trunks that lay rotting on the ground.

The path climbed upwards through trees that glowed green in the evening sunshine. He could smell damp soil and hear water dripping. The pine branches were covered with ferns and moss. Everything seemed vibrantly alive. By the time he reached the Wick he was feeling better for his walk.

Now that the sky was clearing he could sit on the beach and work in peace. Maybe, he thought, as he descended the wooden steps that zigzagged down from the hotel; I should treat myself to dinner. The food at the Wick was always excellent. It was low tide and the evening sunshine lit the driftwood-strewn shore. The figure kept close to the silvery-blue water.

He frowned and tried to look as busy as possible. After a while he heard the soft, gravelly crunch of approaching footsteps. A woman in her late fifties was standing in front of him, cigarette in hand. Her face was tanned, and criss-crossed with lines.

Barefoot, she wore jeans and a dark windcheater. Her deep-blue eyes sparkled with curiosity. She must have been stunning in her youth. Under normal circumstances he would have given a non-committal answer, but instead he heard himself say.

The woman sat down beside him. The woman nodded. And sonar. We can track down pods. Some are just passing through - grey whales, humpbacks, minke and so on - but others live here. Pliny set them up, though, in his Natural History.

He called them, " A mightie masse and lumpe of flesh without all fashion, armed with most terrible, sharpe, and cutting teeth. What nonsense! Anawak pointed out to sea. Transient orcas are nomadic and live in smaller pods.

They come closest to your idea of a killer whale. How well do you know the island? Resident orcas live there all year round. They only eat salmon. She laughed.

You were trying to explain which whales have vanished and which are still here. Anawak glanced at his notebook and laptop. Call me Sam. Situated on a rocky promontory at the front of the hotel, the restaurant commanded an impressive view of Clayoquot Sound and the islands, with the bay and the temperate rainforest behind it. Besides, the region lives off the timber industry and entire forests are being transported to Asia. Once the trees are gone, the rivers fill with silt, the salmon lose their spawning grounds and the resident orcas have nothing to eat.

Onuphis elegans. The bay is nice and sandy, which suits the worms, and the grey whales love them. Crowe started peeling a garlicky prawn. I ask, Is anybody out there? Thirty-seven signals that might have been someone saying hello.

There are other projects like it, but ours is the crucial one. She shook her head. The chance of making contact is remote, almost beyond all probability. So, I should really throw myself off the next bridge in frustration. But the signals are my obsession. Like you and your whales. Anawak had always been interested in SETI. Thanks to generous private sponsorship, SETI had since been able to set up other projects across the globe, but Phoenix was probably the best known. You know what, Leon?

The question seemed to amuse her. The Milky Way is made up of roughly a hundred billion stars. We can only find out about them by using scientific tricks.

But you try listening for signals from a hundred billion stars! Yet all the while it was swimming along with thousands of others - just always somewhere else. In NASA sent a binary message from Arecibo to M13, a globular star cluster a mere twenty-one thousand light years away. But the essential problem remains the same: whether a signal comes from us or from somebody else, all it can do is wander through interstellar space.

It would take an amazing coincidence for someone to intercept it. If other civilizations knew we were here, they might rob us of our planet. God help us, they might even eat us for breakfast. Why do you study whales and dolphins?

Crowe was right. They were doing much the same thing, listening for signals and hoping for answers. They both had a deep-seated longing for the company of intelligent beings other than humans. She seemed to know what he was thinking. We want to know what their existence might mean for us. It was nearly half past ten when they said goodbye after a drink in the lounge - bourbon for Crowe and water for Anawak. Outside, the clouds had dispersed and the sky was scattered with myriad twinkling stars.

For a while they gazed up at it. Anawak felt himself stiffen. Then he saw himself through her eyes: a man of medium height and stocky build, with wide cheekbones, copper skin, almond eyes and thick, shiny black hair that fell across his forehead. Crowe glanced at him. Then she pulled out a packet of cigarettes, lit one and took a long drag. Now, listen: the Thorvaldson sets sail for the continental slope tomorrow.

Do you want to come? Johanson ran through a mental checklist of his commitments. There was an airport nearby, from which helicopters flew out to the many oil rigs crammed along the North Sea continental shelf and the Norwegian Trench.

What are you doing the day after? We can get the helicopter to Gullfaks and take the transfer launch from there. He put down the phone and frowned.

It was puzzling to see a new species within an ecosystem as well researched as this one. But it makes sense for them to be there, thought Johanson. And methane deposits were present on every continental slope, the Norwegian slope included. The taxonomic and biochemical findings would resolve the matter.

When he got to work the next morning he found two envelopes bearing his name. He glanced at the taxonomic reports, stuffed them into his briefcase and set off for his lecture.

The temperature had risen, melting large sections of snow to expose the earth beneath. In weather like this it was hard to know what to wear, so Johanson had packed as much as the weight restrictions on the helicopter allowed. He had no intention of catching cold on the Thorvaldson. In any case, he had put in a few things that two people might enjoy together. Johanson drove slowly. At Halsa he took the car ferry over the fjord and continued towards Kristiansund, driving over bridge after bridge across slate-grey water.

Several little islands made up the town, which he drove through, then crossed to the island of Averoy, one of the first places to have been settled after the last ice age. Sveggesundet, a picturesque fishing village, lay at its furthest tip.

In high season it was packed with tourists, and boats streamed out of the harbour, heading for the neighbouring islands.

The restaurant had an outdoor seating area, overlooking the sea. He walked up to them. She looked up, eyes shining, and glanced at the man next to her. He was in his late twenties, with light brown hair, an athletic build and chiselled features. Johanson sat down opposite them, pulling up the collar of his parka. His briefcase lay beside him on the bench. Has Tina told you what this is about?

Johanson opened the case and pulled out the envelopes. The best taxonomists I know are attached to them. I also sent one to Kiel to be examined under the scanning electron microscope. Johanson settled back and crossed one leg over the other. Some of it freezes on the surface of the seabed - it combines with water to form ice. It only happens in conditions of high pressure and low temperature, so you have to go pretty deep before you find it.

The ice is called methane hydrate. Does that make sense? They take it in and give out hydrogen sulphide. Certain species of worm live off the chemicals expelled by bacteria.

In some cases, they swallow the bacteria and carry them around inside them; in others, the bacteria live on their outer casing. They make themselves comfortable, help themselves to the bacteria, and relax. Sverdrup seemed to be getting into the discussion. The taxonomists have found a second worm with that jaw structure. Sometimes he found Tina Lund hard to resist, but deep down, he knew she would be too demanding. Now she was off-limits. Half an hour later they were sitting in the aircraft with a dozen oil workers.

The dull grey surface of the choppy sea stretched out beneath them, littered with gas and oil tankers, freighters and ferries as far as the eye could see. Then the platforms came into view. Factories on stilts extended all the way from Holland to Haltenbank off the coast of Trondheim. Fierce gusts buffeted the helicopter, and Johanson straightened his headphones.

They were all wearing ear-protectors and heavy clothing, and were packed in so tightly that their knees touched. The noise made talk impossible. Lund had closed her eyes. The helicopter wheeled and proceeded south-west. They were heading for Gullfaks, a group of production platforms belonging to Statoil. Gullfaks C was one of the largest structures in the northern reaches of the North Sea. In any case, they were only landing in order to board the Thorvaldsonwhich was anchored off Gullfaks.

A sudden gust caused the helicopter to drop. Johanson clutched his armrests but nobody else stirred: the passengers were used to stronger gales than this. Lund opened her eyes and winked at him.

After a while the helicopter dipped and started to bank. The sea tilted up towards Johanson, then a white building came into view. The pilot prepared to land.

Over half of the construction lay under water, its pillars extending from the seabed surrounded by a forest of storage tanks. The white tower block where the workers slept was only a small section of the platform. Bundles of pipes, each a metre or more in diameter, connected the layers of decks, which were flanked by cranes and crowned with the derrick - the cathedral of the oil world.

A flame shot over the sea from the tip of an enormous steel boom, burning natural gas that had separated from the oil. Touch-down was surprisingly gentle. Lund yawned and stretched as far as she could. The hatch opened and they clambered out. Johanson walked to the edge of the helipad and looked down. A hundred and fifty metres below, the waves rose and fell.

A biting wind cut through his overalls. Get a move on, will you? A small, stocky man with a white moustache was standing at the top of the steel steps, waving at them. He clasped Lund to his chest, then shook hands with Johanson. Open navigation menu. Close suggestions Search Search. User Settings.

Giving through life insurance Question: How can I use life insurance to make a planned gift to my parish, school or other diocesan agency, and what are the benefits of doing so?

However, an individual can accomplish making such a significant future gift through his or her estate plan. And one way is through life insurance.

Life insurance can be used to benefit your parish, school or other diocesan agency in various ways. You can retain lifetime ownership rights in a policy but name a charity as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy. And if the beneficiary is a charity, your estate will not be subject to any estate tax on the proceeds. This type of designation is revocable, which means that you can change the beneficiary at any time during your lifetime.

In addition, you have the right to borrow against the policy or to cash in the insurance policy. Such gifts can easily be fulfilled by obtaining a change of beneficiary form for the policy you want to give and then completing the form to name the charity as beneficiary.

Another way of gifting life insurance to charity is by assigning the ownership and beneficiary designation of a policy to the charity during your lifetime. Because you are giving up ownership under this arrangement, the transfer is irrevocable. However, a number of tax benefits may apply. If you contribute the policy to your church by transferring ownership and beneficiary designation to the church, you are entitled to an immediate charitable income tax deduction for the cash surrender value of the policy.

Also, if you continue paying the annual premiums on the policy, you would I Remember - Tom Shoemaker - I Remember / Promise Her Anything (Vinyl) a charitable income tax deduction for the amount of the premium paid each of those years. Moreover, the insurance proceeds will pass free of estate taxation.

If you do not have a current life insurance policy that you could name a charity as beneficiary or assign ownership to the charity, you could purchase a new policy on your life. You would name the charity as the owner and beneficiary on the new policy. If you pay the annual premiums, you would be entitled to claim an income tax deduction for the amount paid.

What can you do with an asset that has appreciated substantially in value? If you sell that asset, you would incur capital gain tax. But if you hold that property, your estate would be subject to estate and inheritance tax on it. The taxes would greatly reduce the amount passing to your heirs.

One idea is to use a wealth replacement plan. You could transfer the appreciated asset to a charitable remainder trust. The charitable remainder trust sells the asset, but pays no capital gain tax.

The life insurance proceeds would be payable to family members at your death. Remember life insurance proceeds are not subject to income tax, and if structured properly, can escape estate tax as well. With the charitable remainder trust, assets remaining in the trust at the end of a term of years or at the death of the last beneficiary are distributed to your beloved charity. There are several advantages of funding a charitable giving plan with life insurance.

First of all, because life insurance is not a probate asset, it is paid promptly and not tied up in the administration of an estate. In addition, gifting life insurance is not a complicated process. Moreover, as mentioned earlier, a number of tax incentives exist for making a charitable gift with life insurance. However, as with any other planned gift, you should consult with your professional advisor beforehand.

After a few more years on the road, Cel got a good job in Texas and the family settled down. And the babies — eventually seven of them — started to come. There is Celestino Jr. Of the seven, two are retired from the Navy, one of whom is a Cdr.

All life is special and will help advance this world into the future. People confuse the natural order making liberty more important than the right to life. Sometimes people stop to listen to what we have to say; sometimes no one is around to hear it. But we still have to speak up for life, we still have to take the steps to make sure that life is protected — that life is sacred.

Benedict demonstrates that sin strikes at the very heart of us quite literallyperverting that which is most Godlike within us, our capacity for love. Eros, which, correctly understood, is a desire for unity with the other, becomes cheapened by sin and reduced to mere sensuality and sensuality always means using rather than reverencing others. Benedict wants to rescue eros from this kind of reductionism and situate it in its rightful place in the tradition.

But Christian love is never merely eros, but rather finds its completion in agape. That is, this desire for union with the other necessarily finds its consummation in the act of self-giving. This, of course, is most evident in Jesus, who gives himself entirely on behalf of his beloved, the church. Once Benedict has provided reflection on the true nature of Christian love, he then turns his attention to what this means concretely in the life of the church.

Genuine love, the love revealed by Jesus, is never easy, and while it may from time to time be warm, it makes serious demands upon us. This is not because God is a demanding tyrant. Rather, it is because we are so turned in on ourselves, so self-focused, that genuine love seems to us so demanding, as it calls us out of ourselves and to make a gift of ourselves.

But in this self-giving is true liberation, true freedom. As the Gospel teaches, it is only in dying to oneself that we can discover our true identity and vocation. What is more, the church is motivated — in fact, driven — by this agape Benedict uses its Latin form, caritas to the service of our neighbor.

William Lester. Asking God to continue to bless you in your mission endeavors, I remain fraternally in the Lord, Rev. John E.

People of all faiths and backgrounds. It is really inspiring to see so many people there who all believe in the same thing you do — that abortion is murder, and that it is not only lethal to the baby, but also hurts the mother as well.

Sometimes sitting in front of an abortion clinic praying can be, in a way, discouraging. But when you see the number of people in D. When you add it all up, it begins to make a difference. However, this march is not only a time to cry out against abortion.

For a lot of people, especially the Catholic youth who show up in large numbers, it is a time of reflection and meditation. What is God calling me to do in my life? Where does he want me? McCarrick gave an awesome talk on vocations. For me, it was a changing point in my life. I finally said to myself that I know what God wants of me, and I am willing to answer that call. And as hundreds of guys, and likewise girls, stood up all around the arena saying that they have heard the call to the priesthood or religious life, it becomes an inspiration for many priests and bishops.

It is so true. God is calling. Some old mothballs and a few filth-infested coats? Shoes that even Goodwill would refuse? Or you might even think to find some forgotten Christmas present, which is now sadly camouflaged with the dust that crept in from the slits in the doors. And maybe even a coin or two tucked in the pockets of those few bulky wool coats that are so horribly out of style.

How wrong that is Envision finding an enchanted world within that stale, musty wood. Imagine a door that leads into dreams or, possibly, even truths. Just image finding God in your attic closet.

Truly, this is what C. Whatever the popular reaction, that Narnia was based merely upon Christianity is quite apparent. One of C. Oh, of course it does! And this is what is so powerful about Narnia, so mag- So now comes the time to realize that God is everywhere, even if it is in some place so unanticipated.

They twist the realms of dreams with the seeming certainties of reality. And I tell you — dreams usually are the best realities. That someone was willing to suffer and die for you is not a dream. Of course you do, for everyone has a hope for his or her future.

That future hope will make this life on earth worthwhile. Lewis tries to touch our hearts through the delicate words of Narnia — not to persuade us into believing in the Almighty, but to feel, to accept the love given by him who loves all.

It is this love that makes Narnia so remarkable, so beautiful. So now comes the time to realize that God is everywhere, even if it is in some place so unanticipated. He is within that very large book on your shelf, in the gentle wind that sings through the trees, in the morning sun that always rises after night, and even more closely, within the beats of our very own hearts. The time has now come to find him. He has been waiting a very, very long time. I suggest starting somewhere unexpected, even if it happens to be a dirty old wardrobe.

Open those doors, and embrace his grace. Bavo Parish in Mishawaka. An understanding of these approaches might help Catholics who are trying to interpret some of the issues facing the church these days.

By nature, a church has a positive view of society. It sees itself as functioning within existing social and cultural arrangements, but is willing to critique these arrangements from time to time.

A church believes that it offers a balanced world view that both affirms society and retains the core elements of its religious tradition. It believes it is able to survive — indeed, flourish — within the society, while maintaining its integrity as a religious institution, including doctrines that challenge the society. Membership in a church is inclusive, meaning that a church hopes to attract followers from all walks of life. Membership standards make it fairly easy for people from varied backgrounds and with diverse world views to join the church.

OWEN F. Understanding this passage and extracting from it its fullest lesson require knowing the historical context in which this book was written. These verses come from the second section of Isaiah.

At the time of their composition, the long, dreary exile of Jewish survivors of the Babylonian conquest generations earlier of the two Jewish kingdoms had ended.

Exiles, or their descendants, were in Babylon for 80 years. They were strangers in an unfriendly land. Of course, they yearned for their homeland. The opportunity to return came when the Persian emperor, Cyrus, overwhelmed Babylonia. He allowed the exiles to go home.

The religiously devout among the exiles saw God as the true deliverer. Cyrus merely was the instrument of God in this process. Despair in Babylon had overtaken them.

Still, regardless, God was true to the covenant. Members of a church see themselves as a heterogeneous mixture of saints and sinners who are no better or worse than other members of society. They expect moderate levels of religious commitment, but do not expect members to sacrifice other commitments for the sake of the church. A sect starts out as a subset of church members who believe that their church has made too many compromises with the larger society and, in the process, has sacrificed much of its integrity and many of its core teachings.

These members believe there is a need to adopt a countercultural view of society and to reclaim the fundamental truths of their faith. Sometimes they are able to convince church leaders to make room for them within the church. When they are unable to do so, they are excommunicated or voluntarily withdraw from the church and form a new religious group.

Membership in the new sect is exclusive. Sects encourage their members to withdraw from the society and make the sect the center of their lives, as both a social community and a community of faith. They expect high levels of religious participation. The land to which the exiles returned was desolate and unaccommodating.

Corinth was one of the chief cities of the Roman Empire. With a large population, including people from throughout the Mediterranean world, it of course received its share of pioneer Christian missionaries. Converts were made in Corinth. A Christian community formed. However, evidently these converts were the source of some anxiety for Paul.

He wrote to them at least twice. The people quarreled among themselves. They strayed into sin and pagan practice. Paul firmly called them to uncompromised loyalty to the Gospel. He himself was not always well received. Some challenged his credentials as an apostle. In this reading, Paul reasserts his role, and moreover he reaffirms his purely spiritual intentions. For its last reading the church presents a passage from St. Healing this paralyzed man was marvelous, and the extraordinary circumstance of lowering him through the roof made it all the more dramatic.

However, the scribes present at the event took offense. The scribes saw blasphemy in this statement. Only God can forgive sins, because sins offend God. Again, to understand the reading requires an awareness of the context.

Pious Jews at the time looked upon physical maladies as the result of sin. Perhaps the victim of the maladies had sinned. Perhaps ancestors had sinned. But, in any case, all physical distress ultimately came from sin. Incidentally, roofs at the time were quite flimsy by modern standards. They were wooden beams laid horizontally from wall to the directly opposing walls of a house.

Then thatch was laid on these beams, loosely held together by mud. It kept out I Remember - Tom Shoemaker - I Remember / Promise Her Anything (Vinyl) hot rays of the sun, much more a problem in the Holy Land than rainwater.

He acts as God. He forgives sin. This is the marvel, exceeding even the cure of the paralytic. In this understanding, the passage has relevance for us today. We sin. Jesus forgives us, if we sincerely and humbly seek to be forgiven.

God provides for our escape from the effects of sin, just as God rescued the exiles in Babylon. Sin is our prison. What is the shortest Gospel in the Bible? Matthew b. Mark c. Luke 2. What is the shortest New Testament book? Philemon b. The Letter to the Galatians c. John 2 3. For his merciful kindness is great toward us:and the truth of the Lord endures forever.

Praise ye the Lord. Genesis 1 b. Exodus 37 c. Psalm 4. The shortest verse in the New Testament is John What is it? Jesus saves. And Jesus wept. What is the general style of this biblical language? In 1 Corinthians,we read that time is running short running out in some texts. What event was anticipated to be imminent? In Revelation 12,who is acting with fury because he has only a short time? Paul c. Jesus What is this often referred to as?

The shortest reigning just over a month pope in the 20th century was: a. Paul VI c. John Paul I But the shortest reigning pope in history was Stephen II who died three days after he was elected.

Some fragrance ingredients are considered allergens head to Baby Im Satisfied Food and Drug Administration for a full list and Baby Im Satisfied required to be listed on the label if they're above certain amounts, says Vu. However, due to the complex and proprietary, meaning owned by that specific brand nature of a fragrance formula, all of the ingredients aren't usually listed.

This makes it difficult to know which ingredients cause the adverse reactions, she adds. Be sure to read the label carefully as unscented products can still contain masking ingredients ingredients that conceal smell or fragrance and give the perception that a product is unscented—often labeled as "parfum" or "fragrance" on the ingredients list versus being truly fragrance-free, which contains no added perfume at all.

Retrieved November 7, Cousin Oliver : Unintentionally Lampshaded in the late 90s and early s, when Baby Bear would occasionally be seen babysitting his baby as in infant cousin, who always garnered attention from other residents for how cute he was. Oh, and his name?

Cousin Oliver. This was before Curly Bear. Counting to Potato : In this skit, a little girl trolls Kermit as he attempts to recite the alphabet with her. What makes it more adorable is that according to this Jim Henson biography, the girl thought up the joke without prompting, and Henson improvised Kermit's responses on the spot. Tropes Brought to you by the Letter D. Dagwood Sandwich : In episodeTelly comes into Hooper's Store for his usual cheese sandwich lunch, but after seeing a different patron eating something different Mr.

Hanford tells him you can put anything on a sandwich. Afterwards Telly gets a passion to make the world's first "everything" sandwich. Dance Party Ending : The nineteenth season finale is Luis and Maria's wedding; the episode ends with everyone dancing to a salsa remix of the theme song at the reception in the arbor. Darkest Africa : Subverted in a s segment.

Smart Tina claims that Africa is just one big jungle because she saw it in a Tarzan movie. But Roosevelt Franklin shows on a map that only a small portion of Africa is jungle.

The continent is really a mix of different environments dotted with big cities and valuable resources. Deadpan Snarker : Bert or Oscar, normally. Though the writers have infused many of the characters with this trait when the sketch calls for it. Even though Star Wars is a family franchise, the violent fight scenes make it appropriate only for children older then 7.

The celebrity expanded version of Monster in the Mirror ends with a cameo from The Simpsonsa show for an audience far more adult that that of Sesame Street. Three skits one about the letter W, one about body parts, and one about brushing teeth featured characters from Happy Days Fonzie was in all three and Richie also featured in the tooth-brushing skit.

While Happy Days isn't an adult show, it contains risque jokes that make it more suitable for around middle school age and up. Demoted to Extra : Has happened with numerous cast members and Muppets over the years, but the most notable would have to be Big Bird during the s, being overshadowed by Elmo's skyrocketing popularity since The '90s.

Destroyed For Real : Big Bird's nest area in the 5-part hurricane story arc from the hurricane blew down all of the construction doors surrounding the area, the nest itself was blown apart into a mess of scattered twigs and sticks, the whole area was reduced to a shambles and even though Oscar and his can were in Bob's apartment as the hurricane blew through, the rest of Oscar's domain was also blown to pieces.

It took the adults two days to help clean up the debris as well as put the doors back up, and another two days for them all to help Big Bird build a new nest. Department of Redundancy Department : Intentionally done with Vincent Twice, a Muppet parody of Vincent Price that hosted the Mysterious Theater segments and would often repeat his name twice when introducing himself, hence his name.

Even Sherlock Helmock does it when in one installment, Vincent Twice turns out to be the culprit of the mystery. Tropes Brought to you by the Letter E. Eagleland Osmosis : It was rumored that in a British primary school, a teacher showed this clip to her class and later asked where milk comes from.

Their response? This was no fault of the Children's Television Workshop. The CTW, when asked, will help other nations to create their own versions of Sesame Street tailored to the host nation's cultures, concerns, and budget. They also felt CTW's involvement would be insulting, considering the BBC already had 20 years of experience producing children's educational programs. Early Installment Weirdness : Early seasons were much slower-paced, and frequently relied on lengthy lectures, making it more in line with competitors such as Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and Captain Kangaroo.

They abandoned this around the mid s. Some of the Muppet characters looked and sounded very different, too. Oscar, for example, was orange, and only his head was visible.

Big Bird missed most of the feathers on his head, and had the mindset of a dim-witted adult bird rather than a child. Cookie Monster was slightly more menacing at first, acting as a disruptive nuisance with a very limited vocabulary. Rowlfwho was the best-known Muppet character instarred in the Children's Television Workshop pitch reel for the show alongside Kermit, but only made one appearance in the series proper in the Henson-made "Song of 9" film from season 1.

Oddly, in the pitch reel, Rowlf was the Only Sane Man and Kermit was a Deadpan Snarker though he did get the honors of coming up with the title for Sesame Streetafter a Running Gag of other Muppets straining to think of a good title for the show. Before Elmo gained his own distinct identity, he was an occasional background character. Sometimes he would have a deep or raspy voice. Animated segments originally outnumbered Muppet segments. Also, the characters broke the fourth wall more frequently, addressing their audience as well as introducing and commenting on segments, as if they tied into each other more.

In a first season segment where Ernie cleans up the apartmentErnie points out his paperclip collection. Later on, Bert would be the one who collects paperclips, while Ernie would typically think they are boring. The street set used to look much more authentically New York inner-city back in the old days, with litter and dead leaves covering the sidewalk, grit on the buildings, and the sounds of traffic, car horns, sirens, and whistles heard in the background.

The very first version of Snuffy teeters into Accidental Nightmare Fuel. Ernie, Bert, Grover, Cookie Monster and even Kermit the Frog were far more frequently seen on the street with the other characters in the first ten seasons, since Jim Henson and Frank Oz were more readily available, though after The Muppet Show and other subsequent projects took up much of their time, Ernie, Bert, Grover, Cookie and Kermit were then relegated to mostly inserts, as Jim and Frank were then only able to dedicate one week out of each year for such.

Those characters started to make regular appearances in street scenes again in the s and s, following Jim's death and Frank's semi-retirement. Although always possessing a golden voice, Bob wasn't always a music teacher; in fact, during the show's earliest episodes, he was a shop teacher instead.

The first season featured performances of popular and copyrighted songs; it was not uncommon to find things like Bob singing " Good Morning Starshine ", or the Muppets belting out some tunes of The Beatles. This continued to a lesser extent into the second season. A rare instance of a popular song being sung on the show after the first season was when special guest star Gloria Estefan sang her famous song "Conga" on the show in Count von Count was more sinister when he debuted in Although he wouldn't drink blood or turn into a bat and would still often be out in sunlighthe was much more vampiric, such as possessing hypnotic powers so he could get others to let him count something, and his Signature Laugh was more villainous-sounding, and he wouldn't let anything get in his way of counting.

He was significantly toned down and got much friendlier by the end of the 70s, and they gradually phased out rerunning older segments featuring his earlier self most notably any where he uses his hypnotic powers.

There were two letters of the day initially. It was changed to one somewhere around season 3. Ear Worm : In a episode, Big Bird just wants to go about his day, but he can't stop thinking about the song "C is for Cookie". Played with in an episode where Oscar gets the theme in his head.

The reason why he dislikes it is because the song is too happy for grouches. Earth Song : "Don't Throw Your Trash on the Ground" talks about how you should never litter but use trash bins instead. The similarly-titled "Don't Waste the Water" is about how you should never leave your faucet running.

There are three songs featuring a character named Willie Wimple, about environmentalism— one is about deforestation, one is about littering, and the final one is about water pollution. They show Willie doing the bad thing and sing about the terrible thing that would happen if all children did it. In "Just Throw it My Way", Oscar sings about how you should throw your trash into his bin instead of on the ground.

River" talks about how rivers are disappearing due to pollution. Eat the Camera : A not-uncommon means of ending skits, particularly considering his shtick featuring Cookie Monster. Edible Theme Naming : One little girl in a cartoon skit is named Cookie.

Downplayed for Cookie Monster, which is a nickname. The "Noodles and Ned" skits feature Noodles the cat. Educational Song : A major foundation of the show, covering a wide array of educational concepts and music genres. Edutainment Show : Not the Ur-Examplebut very much the Trope Maker for shows that try to present educational content in an entertaining fashion. With its colorful Muppets, witty comedy sketches, catchy songs, and memorable film and animation inserts, it became a big hit right out of the gate.

David and Olivia explain to Big Bird that people vote for who they want to run in certain offices in the government, so Big Bird and Snuffy decide they want to vote too, but they can't because they're not old enough to register to vote and because Snuffy was still "imaginary" at the time.

Embarrassment Plot : One episode focuses on Baby Bear being embarrassed about his baby doll because he thinks dolls are for girls. In one "Abby's Flying Fairy School" skit, Blogg is embarrassed when he visits the city of trolls because he is half-troll and half-fairy so he looks like a troll with wings and feels like the odd one out.

Emo : Abby's classmate Gonnigan. He's shy and pessimistic, wears a striped hoodie, has a floppy hairstyle, and becomes transparent when he's nervous However, he takes it back after he's shown what would happen if he made that wish. Episode Tagline : In one episode, Baby Bear keeps saying the title of his story, "The Three Bears in Outer Space" with an inexplicable echo on that last word which disappears at the end.

In the episode where Gabi gets the flu on her birthdayeveryone tells her, "It's OK to be sad if you're sick on your birthday" to the point where she gets, well, sick of it. One episode involves trying to find out why Natasha keeps saying, "Hoongie". It turns out that's what she calls her doll. Every episode in seasons 38 through 45 has a "word of the day".

Escaped Animal Rampage : Ernie tells Bert about his day at the zoo in an early skit. Ernie describes the trip as largely uneventful, even as he also reveals that several animals escaped their cages Every Episode Ending : Up to three letters of the day and two numbers of the day are reviewed and given sponsor credits.

Starting with Season 27new episodes generally only had one letter and number of the day. An exception was Episodewhich had two letters of the day. Up until the end of Season 26this was followed by " Sesame Street is a production of the Children's Television Workshop". The funding credits then were shown, which were initially silent, then had a tune known by fans as "Funky Chimes" playing fromand finally used an instrumental of the then-current "calypso" version of the theme from Everyone Has Standards : In the sketch where he plays Robin Hood auditioning new Merry Men, even giggling jokester extraordinaire Ernie finds Harvey Kneeslapper's wacky antics obnoxious and annoying.

Evil Slinks : Intentionally subverted, in an effort to make things unfairly stereotyped as icky and scary more approachable. Sammy the Snake and his song about the letter S illustrate this nicely. Exact Words : Often a source of misunderstanding.

In one Ernie and Bert sketch, Bert's reading is disrupted by the music of a marching band Ernie is leading outside, and Bert asks him to practice anywhere but outside the apartment - so Ernie leads the band inside the appartment. Expository Theme Tune : Expy : The many co-productions around the world contain their own versions of certain characters.

Each country has a full-bodied Muppet similar to Big Bird, but not an exact replica. They even met once. Zigzagged on Zhima Jie. Co-productions also have their own versions of Oscar, usually another grouch. Sometimes, though, inserts with the original Oscar will be dubbed and used. Elmo is international now, too. His South African equivalent is named Neno.

Extreme Omni-Goat : In an interstitial cartoon demonstrating "zero". A complaint was received from the Dairy Goats Association, leading to a follow-up clarifying that dairy goats only eat healthy, sensible foods. See them both, one after the other, here. Extreme Omnivore : Cookie Monster eats anything, as do his family occasionally.

Oscar eats some extremely strange food combinations — like sardine ice cream with chocolate sauce — but they are generally at least edible.

Narf also eats a helmet at one point. Tropes Brought to you by the Letter F. Faceless Masses : The anything muppets. The reason that they are called this is because they can be anything as needed, however the most memorable are The CountThe Amazing MumfordGuy SmileyPrairie Dawn and of course Forgetful Jones.

Fainting : Happens quite a bit with Muppets i. Also a very common way to end a Muppet sketch. Carl Mericana was asked what kind of shape he was being presented with, and when he responded with "a circle", Betty Lou facepalmed. Fairy Companion : Abby Cadabby, who is a serious point of contention for some fans, as it looks disturbingly like the character was designed by a marketing committee. However, the book "Street Gang" - while quite frankly admitting that that is how Zoe was designed, and how much she was hated by the writers because of it - takes pains to point out that Abby was created in the traditional manner by the show's longest established writer.

Fairy Tale Free-for-All : Whenever the show dipped its feet into Fairy Talesit featured an assortment of fairy tale characters as Muppets. Baby Bear attends Storybook Community School, which seems to be geared toward fairytale characters. Hey, kid - you wanna buy an 'O'?

Fat and Skinny : Ernie and Bert, although Ernie is more broad than fat. Because of this, Elmo can't decide whether to have his earache treated or not, and sings a song about it.

Feeling the Baby Kick : In the first part of the 3-part episode, "Three Bears and a New Baby", after the Bear family hug each other when Mama tells Baby Bear that they'll still have the same amount of love for each other as they did before, their hug is interrupted by Baby Bear's new baby sister, Curly, kicking from inside Mama.

Baby Bear is impressed when he finds out that a baby can move around inside its mother, and Mama allows him to feel Curly kick. Filler : The televised version of Abby in Wonderland was combined with a cover version of " I Believe in Little Things" and the street scenes from "The Golden Triangle of Destiny" in order to fill an hour.

Also, through the years, various tricks were used to fill the hour. These included the inserting of one of several stock segments - such as the famous "dot bridge" dots would be placed, one at a time, on the screen, to form a 6-by-5 grid - to repeating segments to a quick clip of someone either a mainstream celebrity or cast member making a comment a la Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In.

Sometimes, the end theme and "sponsors of the day" was simply started early over a generic street scene, but the camera just pulling away from the action in progress. Filthy Fun : All Grouches except Felix enjoy being dirty and hate being clean, so they "wash" with things like mud and cheese. Irvine, Oscar's niece, did want a bath in one episode, but that was seen as an unusual activity that she's only doing because she's a toddler. Slimey the worm likes mud, probably because he's a worm.

First Day of School Episode : Abby, and later Baby Bear, had episodes focusing on their having their first day at a school for fairy-tale characters. One episode focused on Elmo's first day of preschool. A book based on the series focused on Grover's first day of school. The Count remembers his first day of school at one point during a Flashback. Fish out of Water : The Yip-Yip aliens, who spent their first years on Earth attempting to communicate with inanimate objects Hilarity Ensues.

Some stand out more than others, though: Zoe was originally a little girl monster who enjoyed dancing, among other things Telly used to be merely fond of triangles instead of obsessed with them like he is now. Cookie Monster, in his earliest appearances, just loved milk and cookies before becoming an Extreme Omnivore. Since the mids, Elmo has become increasingly loud and hyperactive within each season as well as a Karma Houdini.

Fly-at-the-Camera Ending : The musical skit "Surprise" has a Pie in the Face ending with the pie flying straight into the face of the viewer. Then the fog clears up, so they all dance the London Clog. Forgetful Jones : Trope Namer. Forgetful Jones is a cowboy who forgets a lot.

They later end up in two towns filled with people from Mexico and West Africa, respectively. Friendly Neighborhood Vampire : The Count is one of the finest examples of this. He's a vampire, but very friendly and never seen drinking blood. Funny Animal : Some upright-walking animals, such as the Bear family, feature. Funny Foreigner : The Count is one of the Transylvanian variety. Furry Confusion : In one skit, teaching about frogs, Kermit is horrified when Bob tells him that frogs do not eat pizza or live in apartments, and is noticeably squeamish when Bob shows him a real bullfrog.

The song "Bears, Bears, Bears" is about how the Bear family are still bears even though they don't act like regular bears. Furry Reminder : The Bear family doesn't hibernate, but in one episode, it's revealed that they still need to occasionally take all-day naps to make up for lost sleep.

Generation Xerox : The Christmas special Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas shows the street in the 19th Century, where the great-grandfatehrs of Elmo, Cookie, Grover and others are more or less identical to their present-day counterparts save for some extra mustaches.

Though, this is merely a story made up by Elmo's dad. An episode featuring a visit from Gordon's father reveals he used to be a famous singing star. A flashback has him portrayed by Miles, Gordon's son. Genre Savvy : Occasionally, Big Bird decides not to introduce Snuffy to the adults, knowing that Snuffy will probably wander off before they can meet. One example comes in episodein which Big Bird makes a plan for them to meet, but then imagines what would happen, imagining the usual formula for when he tries to get them to meet.

In another episode, Snuffy shows up at a clothing store when Gordon is trying on clothes, as Snuffy goes to try on Snuffleupagus-sized pants and later when he leaves to pay, Big Bird says that maybe Snuffy and Gordon will run into each other and meet but then adds "probably not".

Dorothea - Mystical Songstress "Dorothea returned to the Mittelfrank Opera as soon as the war was over. Thanks to her talent, the company enjoyed a resurgence in popularity that lasted well beyond the end of her own career. Once she gave up her position as a songstress, she settled down to a private life of peace and quiet. It is said that she was very happily married.

Many years after the war had ended, Dorothea's diary was uncovered, revealing the full extent of the happy life the couple had shared. The love poems that they wrote to one another were published as a collection. It is said that her experience growing up as a commoner provided a useful perspective.

Many years later, her diary was uncovered, revealing the full extent of the happy life the couple shared. Soon the Mittelfrank Opera Company put together a war drama depicting the journey and sacrifice of the emperor and her companions, and the starring role went to none other than Dorothea. Edelgard initially forbade the company from staging it, but was eventually persuaded by Dorothea's passionate performance to rescind that decree.

It is said that the emperor always set aside time to enjoy the opera thereafter. The opera company was warmly welcomed by the war-weary people as a source of solace, and became even more famous than before. It was not discovered until many years later that the troupe's tour had been a covert operation, coordinated by Hubert and Dorothea, to gather intelligence for the Empire. Thanks to the wisdom of his wife, Dorothea, Ferdinand's policies were of massive benefit to the common folk and brought about a swift recovery.

In recognition of this achievement, he was called upon by Emperor Edelgard to introduce these reforms to the Empire at large as the new prime minister. Though the work kept him very busy, he always managed to find time for Dorothea.

It is said that their children filled their loving household with beautiful music ever after. Though the work of reforming the entire nation kept him very busy, he always managed to find time for Dorothea. He spent several years studying his territory, learning to manage its affairs, and when he was ready to become the new Count Hevring, he announced his marriage to Dorothea.

Somehow, despite all this activity, Linhardt actually managed to keep up with his Crest studies. Though his results were dubious at times, his new wife helped him alter them so that they would be of use to people. Their relationship was unlike anything the nobility had ever witnessed. When faced with this accusation, Linhardt and Dorothea could only laugh and note that the past was of no significance to them.

Though his command developed a reputation for occasional recklessness, he proved an able leader, guiding his troops to overcome countless obstacles. In his personal life, he began to spend a great deal of time with Dorothea, who had returned to the Mittelfrank Opera Company after the war. When her efforts brought the opera house to the peak of its resurgence, it is said that Dorothea relinquished her position as songstress in order to retire with Caspar.

They are rumored to have spent the rest of their lives together. Though his antics found him no end of exciting adventures, he was always drawn back to Dorothea, who had returned to the Mittelfrank Opera Company in Enbarr after the war. The two spent more and more time together over the years, and when Dorothea's efforts brought the opera house to the peak of its resurgence, she relinquished her position as songstress and disappeared from the stage.

It is rumored that the pair spent the rest of their lives together. The people of Brigid were skeptical of her at first, but warmed up to her over time.

It is said that she became the person whom Petra loved the most. He married Dorothea, and the two began a happy life together. Dorothea traveled with him always, and even threw herself into battle alongside him every so often. Tales of their bravery endured for generations, thanks in no small part to the operas that Dorothea wrote and composed herself. Learning that there were still places where he could fight, Felix abandoned his noble title and chose to make a living with his sword.

He traveled the land, and some years later found himself in Enbarr. There he encountered Dorothea, who had just resumed her career as a songstress in the opera. From that time on, no matter how far Felix traveled, he always found himself drawn back to the opera house. It is said that, when Dorothea saw his face in the crowd, she sang only for him. Together they inherited Gautier territory. With the support of his wife's counsel, the new Margrave Gautier was able to improve relations with the Sreng people, and thereby convince the local nobles that Relics and Crests were no longer an absolute requirement for survival.

Due to their efforts, they went down in history as an extraordinary lord and lady. It is said that what finally convinced Dorothea to marry Sylvain was his promise that they would grow old happily together, and that he was true to his word. At the height of his storied political career, he announced his marriage to Dorothea, who had returned to prominence with the Mittelfrank Opera Company.

The fire that swept across the backlot of Universal Studios Hollywood on Sunday, June 1,began early that morning, in New England. At a. That night, maintenance workers had repaired the roof of a building on the set, using blowtorches to heat asphalt shingles. They finished the job at 3 a. But the roof remained hot, and some 40 minutes after the workers left, one of the hot spots flared up. The fire moved quickly. But the fire crews were hindered by low water pressure and damaged sprinkler systems and by intense radiant heat gusting between combustible structures.

Eventually the flames reached a 22,square-foot warehouse that sat near the King Kong Encounter. The warehouse was nondescript, a hulking edifice of corrugated metal, but it was one of the most important buildings on the acre lot.

Its official name was Building To backlot workers, it was known as the video vault. Shortly after the fire broke out, a year-old man named Randy Aronson was awakened by a ringing phone at his home in Canyon Country, Calif. Aronson had worked on the Universal lot for 25 years. In practice, this meant he spent his days overseeing an archive housed in the video vault. Aronson dressed and steered his car to Interstate 5.

A few minutes later, the air Light My Fire - Various - The Folk Years (CD) up a harsh scent: the acrid odor of the fire, riding the early-morning breeze into Santa Clarita, roughly 20 miles from the backlot. Aronson sped south.

When he turned onto the Hollywood Freeway, he saw clouds of greenish-black smoke pouring into the sky. It was a. There, he found an inferno. Fire was blasting out of the building as if shot from Light My Fire - Various - The Folk Years (CD) flamethrowers. The heat was extraordinary. There were at least a dozen fire engines ringing the vault, and as Aronson looked around he noticed one truck whose parking lights seemed to be melting. They rained water from the tops of ladders; they doused the building with foam fire retardant.

These efforts proved futile. Before long, firefighters switched tactics, using bulldozers to knock down the burning warehouse and clear away barriers to extinguishing the fire, including the remains of the UMG archive: rows of metal shelving and reels of Light My Fire - Various - The Folk Years (CD), reduced to heaps of ash and twisted steel. Heavy machinery was still at work dismantling the building as night fell. The job was finished in the early morning of June 2, nearly 24 hours after the first flames appeared.

The fire made news around the world, and the destruction of the video vault featured prominently in the coverage. But nearly all news outlets characterized the vault fire as a close call, in which worst cases were averted.

But journalists moved on from the story, and there has never been a full accounting of film and video losses in the fire. The confusion was understandable. Universal Studios Hollywood was a movie backlot, not a record-company headquarters.

One of the few journalists to note the existence of the UMG archive was Nikki Finke, the entertainment-industry blogger and gadfly. In a Deadline. A majority of what was formerly stored there was moved earlier this year to our other facilities. Of the small amount that was still there and waiting to be moved, it had already been digitized so the music will still be around for many years to come.

These reassuring pronouncements concealed a catastrophe. When Randy Aronson stood outside the burning warehouse on June 1, he knew he was witnessing a historic event. A master is a one-of-a-kind artifact, the irreplaceable primary source of a piece of recorded music. According to UMG documents, the vault held analog tape masters dating back as far as the late s, as well as digital masters of more recent vintage.

And it held session masters, recordings that were never commercially released. UMG maintained additional tape libraries across the United States and around the world. There were recordings from dozens of record companies that had been absorbed by Universal over the years, including several of the most important labels of all time.

The vault housed tape masters for Decca, the pop, jazz and classical powerhouse; it housed master tapes for the storied blues label Chess; it housed masters for Impulse, the groundbreaking jazz label. And it held masters for a host of smaller subsidiary labels.

Nearly all of these masters — in some cases, the complete discographies of entire record labels — were wiped out in the fire. The scope of this calamity is laid out in litigation and company documents, thousands of pages of depositions and internal UMG files that I obtained while researching this article. The monetary value of this loss is difficult to calculate. But in historical terms, the dimension of the catastrophe is staggering.

It cannot be said exactly how many recordings were original masters or what type of master each recording was. Also very likely lost were master tapes of the first commercially released material by Aretha Franklin, recorded when she was a young teenager performing in the church services of her father, the Rev.

Franklin, who made dozens of albums for Chess and its sublabels. Then there are masters for largely forgotten artists that were stored in the vault: tens of thousands of gospel, blues, jazz, country, soul, disco, pop, easy listening, classical, comedy and spoken-word records that may now exist only as written entries in discographies. Last year, Vivendi announced a plan to sell up to 50 percent of UMG.

The sale is the talk of the music business; rumored potential buyers include Apple, Amazon and the Chinese conglomerate Alibaba.

The vault fire was not, as UMG suggested, a minor mishap, a matter of a few tapes stuck in a musty warehouse. It was the biggest disaster in the history of the music business. The recordings that burned up in the Universal fire — like the songs that are blasting from car windows on the street outside your home, like all the records that you or I or anyone else has ever heard — represent a wonderment that we have come to take for granted.

For most of human history, every word spoken, every song sung, was by definition ephemeral: Air vibrated and sound traveled in and out of earshot, never to be heard again. The act of listening again has defined music culture for a century.

It is also the basis of the multibillion-dollar record industry. Today a stupefying bounty of recordings is available on streaming audio services, floating free of the CDs, LPs and other delivery systems that once brought them to audiences. The metaphors we use to describe this mass of digitized sound bespeak our almost mystical sense that recorded music has dematerialized and slipped the bonds of earth.

The Cloud. The Celestial Jukebox. Something close to the entire history of music hovers in the ether, waiting to be summoned into our earbuds by a tap on a touch-screen. The choir at the end of the track chants "Fire on high" several times, providing the song the only set of true lyrics. Jeff Lynne later remarked the entire concept of the song started with the idea of classical symphonic sound would collide with a rock and roll sound.

Opening with an orchestra intro and guitar solo, "Waterfall" is a slower and softer song in contrast to its predecessor. Lynne sings the lead vocals while Groucutt sings harmony vocals on the chorus. Kaminski, McDowell and Gale all play together mixed with the backing orchestra in the song's entirety, adding an extra layer of orchestration. The song is written in D Major. The song was not released as a single anywhere with the exception of France and Australia where it became a minor hit. Jeff Lynne has gone on record saying that "Waterfall" is one of his favorite songs in the ELO catalogue.

The full instrumental save for the guitar and string fade in of this song was released as a bonus track for the Face the Music reissue. It includes a small section of in-studio banter and Lynne doing a count-in and also includes a slightly extended studio ending.

The song was written by Lynne in a matter of just a few minutes near the end of the Face the Music studio sessions in June The main song features a more disco-like rhythm aside from the short orchestral interlude on the album version with Tandy's piano riff and Lynne's acoustic guitar playing the chords Am, Em7 and Dm7.

The female backing vocalists sang on the track during the "ha ha" pieces, the "hey hey hey" in the middle section of the song and the chorus, alongside with Lynne and Groucutt. The chorus featured an iconic riff of the clavinet played by Tandy. The second verse Light My Fire - Various - The Folk Years (CD) the ELO string players playing the string rhythm section behind Lynne's vocals. The lyrics "There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in" is a reference to The Beatles ' song " Fixing a Hole ".

The final chord of the opening section You made a fool of me is actually mixed into "Fire on High" during the back-masked message. The middle section features a piano solo by Tandy and a string ascending melody together before cutting an unusual string break.

This break is actually a reversed cut of a string crescendo from the next track "Nightrider" put onto the track merely because, as Lynne described it, "[the two songs] were in the same key. An additional verse was written for the song but was cut from the final mix as proven in the stripped mix of the song which is found as a bonus track on the reissue of the album.

It was released as a single but did not chart unlike the other two album singles. The track is unique for featuring both Lynne and Groucutt though alternating singing the lead vocals. It starts with a moog chord progression and string backing. The first verse has the ELO string trio playing the solo bits. The drums, guitar and bass all join on the pre-chorus "Hold on, nightrider" along with backing harmonies from Greenwich, Collins, O'Neill and Raymond. Virtually all southern soul insiders consider Wendell to be a major artist, and yet even the term "major" doesn't do justice to the man's off-the-charts vocal gift.

Every time he opens his mouth, it's hard not to think in a conspiratorial whisper"He could be number one. Browns," Wendell and Wardell the latter much better known under his recording and performance name of Big Pokey Bear.

The two outsized talents form bookends at opposite ends of the southern soul spectrum. Stylistically, Pokey plays it "rough" and Wendell B plays it "smooth. Pokey Bear presently rules the roost at 1, but no one is counting Wendell B out, and to imagine southern soul without either one of the "Browns" is unimaginable. Wendell B's blockbusters from are both here.

The latter amassed nearly a million YouTube views that was in the views in now number over 5 million and achieved Daddy B Nice's "Best Collaboration of ," the second year in a row Wendell was an instrumental and indeed commanding cog in a southern soul communal effort. To illustrate how long ago that now seems, the Covid pandemic hadn't yet broken. Nice's Top 10 Singles, occasioning the aside: "Wendell is this generation's Ronnie Lovejoy, and if you were going to record a new version of top-rated southern soul classic "Sho' Wasn't Me," Wendell would be the no-brainer choice to sing it.

But what about the filler, you say? There is no filler. Watch for it yet to hit the charts. Background vocals lend even more to the sensation of dancing. There isn't a bad or reptitive cut on the album. Each song has something in common with the othersa certain style, a certain quality, Wendell's brandyet each carries its own weight. Which leads me to proclaim: Real Talk is an honest-to-God primer in the art of production.

In most of these songs, it's difficult to assess whether it's the melody or the arrangements toting the creative load. That's really remarkable. As for the lyrics, I know most fans and most recording artists, actually place the importance on the words, but the fans wouldn't be listening to the words if the music hadn't gotten their attention.

First, the delicate, moody, treble-clef strumming that sounds vaguely like one of those big harps you only see in movies anymore. Then the White-like opening voice-over. The pulsating of the drum. The thumping of the bass. Hand claps. Yet ideal. Mixed to perfection, each element sounding like whole sections of a symphony orchestra. And then, like a curtain opening on the main event, the Wendell B vocal in all its wandering glory, the "real talk" as only "The Boss" can sang it, synthesizer fillips curling Light My Fire - Various - The Folk Years (CD) his prolonged phrases.

Oh yes, and the rap, an undulating verse of words to spice it up. And then all the elements start swirling around one another as Wendell bobs between lead, background and chorus vocals.

It's incredible. This may be a year you want to put behind you, but before you evacuatepick yourself up a little Wendell B and bring it along with your pets, precious papers and memories. Read Daddy B. Nice's Artist Guide to Wendell B. The artists' fans will enjoy. This is a mellow album. Nothing much stands out or sticks out. Contributions by such heavyweights as Donnie Ray and David Brinston are pretty vanilla, and big guns like Ms.

Jody and O. Buchana never get rowdy, much less cock their pistols. In such soft surroundings, it's easy for anyoneeven a folksy-leaning blues manto stand out, and Cummings' "Memphis Blues Brothers" indubitably does, although it's possible you have to be a southern soul insider to really appreciate it. John Cummings, for those who have never heard of him, is one of the most accomplished and well-loved songwriters in southern soul music.

Research John Cummings history in Daddy B. Cummings, whose lyrics combine an affection for Delta culture with a storyteller's knack for the right phrase and a nursery-rhymer's sense of compression, is the most compelling of all the talent in the house, many of whom are mentioned in this song, and "Memphis Blues Brothers" commemorates them.

Here are a few of the "blues brothers" your Daddy B. Buchana, Mr. Only think what a list it would have been if Cummings had included the Memphis-area "blues sisters". Rick Lawson, a Jackson, Mississippi artist who has starting recording again recently, contributes an affecting ballad called "She Don't Love Me" and Mose Stovall makes an unusual appearance on an Ecko label release with his somber slow jam, "Somebody's Gettin' It". In addition to the already-noted appearances by Ms.

Nice's Artist Guide to John Cummings. It's easy to forget, but one of the defining characteristics of southern soul music is its modesty.

This goes all the way back to Johnnie Taylor and Tyrone Davis, whose hits didn't bowl anyone over technically. Taylor's "Good Love" is an exception and also borderline southern soul, although nowadays, the way the music has changed, "Good Love" would be considered mainstream southern soul.

Today's audiences are so used to show-boating, be it by the vocalist or the producer, that they often are bewildered by the casualness, the ordinariness, of southern soul.

Southern soul may sound gentle, for lack of a better term. Often, a song or two doesn't do the job. What these tentative newcomers to the genre often fail to understand is the volumethe sheer numbersof southern soul songs, which as a totality reflect and refract off one another like a school of myriad fish in the ocean. So what the newcomer assumes are isolated instances as they might be in the North are actually songs throbbing with meaning from within a multitude of musical kin.

And in this southern soul perfectly mirrors the rock and roll and Motown-through-Stax, rhythm and blues classics of the sixties and early seventies and also early rap and hiphop of the late eighties and nineties, which sampled those tunes. Jeter Jones understands all this well. Like his predecessors in southern soul, he doesn't sing to draw attention to himself but to get the song across. His new album Mufassa is a smorgasbord of low-key and self-contained tunes with no other object than to fascinate and pleasure, and in this he succeeds.

Great cover art, by the wayJones in a gold-plated, chain-link, Game of Thrones-style helmet. That, by the way, is a by-product of Jeter's blossoming, mid-life career. He has no fear of going anywhere musically thus the varietyeven as he remains "Jeter," i. Many of the tracks on this album are familiar to fans who've witnessed them charting over the past year in Daddy B Nice's Top 10 Singles: "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" being only the latest at 2 in June.

It's very like--and to some extent an extension of--a track from Dhis Him with similar tempo, chord changes and vocal: "Ain't Gone Cheat No More.

Gli inchiostri neri utilizzati erano a base di nerofumo e gomma arabica.

Dal II secolo d. La vecchia forma libraria a rotolo scompare in ambito librario. In forma notevolmente differente permane invece in ambito archivistico. Questo mezzo, permettendo l'accelerazione della produzione delle copie di testi contribuisce alla diffusione del libro e della cultura.

Altri suoi distici rivelano che tra i regali fatti da Marziale c'erano copie di Virgiliodi Cicerone e Livio. Le parole di Marziale danno la distinta impressione che tali edizioni fossero qualcosa di recentemente introdotto.

Sono stati rinvenuti "taccuini" contenenti fino a dieci tavolette. Nel tempo, furono anche disponibili modelli di lusso fatti con tavolette di avorio invece che di legno.

Ai romani va il merito di aver compiuto questo passo essenziale, e devono averlo fatto alcuni decenni prima della Weapon Killer - Swamp Terrorists - Killer (CD del I secolo d. Il grande vantaggio che offrivano rispetto ai rolli era la capienza, vantaggio che sorgeva dal fatto che la facciata esterna del rotolo era lasciata in bianco, vuota. Il codice invece aveva scritte entrambe le facciate di ogni pagina, come in un libro moderno.

La prima pagina porta il volto del poeta. I codici di cui parlava erano fatti di pergamena ; nei distici che accompagnavano il regalo di una copia di Omeroper esempio, Marziale la descrive come fatta di "cuoio con molte pieghe". Ma copie erano anche fatte di fogli di papiro. Quando i greci ed i romani disponevano solo del rotolo per scrivere libri, si preferiva usare il papiro piuttosto che la pergamena. I ritrovamenti egiziani ci permettono di tracciare il graduale rimpiazzo del rotolo da parte del codice.

Fece la sua comparsa in Egitto non molto dopo il tempo di Marziale, nel II secolo d. Il suo debutto fu modesto. A tutt'oggi sono stati rinvenuti 1. Verso il d. I ritrovamenti egiziani gettano luce anche sulla transizione del codex dal papiro alla pergamena. Sebbene gli undici codici della Bibbia datati in quel secolo fossero papiracei, esistono circa 18 codici dello stesso secolo con scritti pagani e quattro di questi sono in pergamena.

Non ne scegliemmo alcuno, ma ne raccogliemmo altri otto per i quali gli diedi dracme in conto. Il codex tanto apprezzato da Marziale aveva quindi fatto molta strada da Roma. Nel terzo secolo, quando tali codici divennero alquanto diffusi, quelli di pergamena iniziarono ad essere Weapon Killer - Swamp Terrorists - Killer (CD. In breve, anche in Egittola fonte mondiale del papiroil codice di pergamena occupava una notevole quota di mercato.

Sono tutti di pergamena, edizioni eleganti, scritti in elaborata calligrafia su sottili fogli di pergamena. Per tali edizioni di lusso il papiro era certamente inadatto. In almeno un'area, la giurisprudenza romanail codex di pergamena veniva prodotto sia in edizioni economiche che in quelle di lusso. La caduta Weapon Killer - Swamp Terrorists - Killer (CD romano nel V secolo d.

Il papiro divenne difficile da reperire a causa della mancanza di contatti con l' Antico Egitto e la pergamenache per secoli era stata tenuta in secondo piano, divenne il materiale di scrittura principale. I monasteri continuarono la tradizione scritturale latina dell' Impero romano d'Occidente. La tradizione e lo stile dell' Impero romano predominavano ancora, ma gradualmente emerse la cultura del libro medievale. I monaci irlandesi introdussero la spaziatura tra le parole nel VII secolo.

L'innovazione fu poi adottata anche nei Paesi neolatini come l'Italiaanche se non divenne comune prima del XII secolo. Si ritiene che l'inserimento di spazi tra le parole abbia favorito il passaggio dalla lettura semi-vocalizzata a quella silenziosa. Prima dell'invenzione e della diffusione del torchio tipograficoquasi tutti i libri venivano copiati a mano, il che li rendeva costosi e relativamente rari. I piccoli monasteri di solito possedevano al massimo qualche decina di libri, forse qualche centinaio quelli di medie dimensioni.

Il processo della produzione di un libro era lungo e laborioso. Infine, il libro veniva rilegato dal rilegatore. Esistono Weapon Killer - Swamp Terrorists - Killer (CD scritti in rosso o addirittura in oro, e diversi colori venivano utilizzati per le miniature. A volte la pergamena era tutta di colore viola e il testo vi era scritto in oro o argento per esempio, il Codex Argenteus.

Per tutto l'Alto Medioevo i libri furono copiati prevalentemente nei monasteri, uno alla volta. Il sistema venne gestito da corporazioni laiche di cartolaiche produssero sia materiale religioso che profano. Questi libri furono chiamati libri catenati. Vedi illustrazione a margine. L' ebraismo ha mantenuto in vita l'arte dello scriba fino ad oggi. Anche gli arabi produssero e rilegarono libri durante il periodo medievale islamicosviluppando tecniche avanzate di calligrafia arabaminiatura e legatoria.

Col metodo di controllo, solo "gli autori potevano autorizzare le copie, e questo veniva fatto in riunioni pubbliche, in cui il copista leggeva il testo ad alta voce in presenza dell'autore, il quale poi la certificava come precisa". In xilografiaun'immagine a bassorilievo di una pagina intera veniva intagliata su tavolette di legno, inchiostrata e usata per stampare le copie di quella pagina.

Questo metodo ebbe origine in Cinadurante la Dinastia Han prima del a. I monaci o altri che le scrivevano, venivano pagati profumatamente. I primi libri stampati, i singoli fogli e le immagini che furono creati prima del in Europa, sono noti come incunaboli.

The use of magnetic tape for the production of the master recordings allowed the introduction of variable pitch grooves. The magnetic tape reproducer used to transfer the recording to the master disc was equipped with an auxiliary playback head positioned ahead of the main head by a distance equal to one revolution of the disc.

The sole purpose of this head was to monitor the amplitude of the recording. If the sound level from both the auxiliary and main magnetic heads was loud, the cutting head on the disc recording lathe was driven at its normal speed.

However, if the sound level from both magnetic heads was quieter, then the disc cutting head could be driven at a lower speed reducing the groove pitch with no danger of the adjacent grooves colliding with each other. The playing time of the disc was therefore increased by an amount dependent on the duration of quieter passages. The record manufacturers had also realised that by reducing the amplitude of the lower frequencies recorded in the groove, it was possible to decrease the spacing between the grooves and further increase the playing time.

These low frequencies were then restored to their original level on playback. Furthermore, if the amplitude of the high frequencies was artificially boosted on recording the disc and then subsequently reduced to their original level on playback, the noise introduced by the disc would be reduced by a similar amount.

This gave rise to an equalization frequency response applied during record coupled with an inverse of the response Album) on playback. Each disc manufacturer applied their own version of an equalization curve mostly because each manufacturer's equalization curve was protected by interlocking patents.

Low-end reproduction equipment applied a compromise playback equalization that reproduced most discs reasonably well. However, amplifiers for audiophile equipment were equipped with an equalization selector with a position for most, if not all, disc manufacturers. The net effect of equalization is to allow longer playing time and lower background noise while maintaining full fidelity of music or other content. Consequently, both low-quality and audiophile reproducers alike could replay any recording with the correct equalization.

There are two versions of the reproduction RIAA equalization curve. The first, is simply the inverse of the recording curve designed for cheaper equipment using crystal or ceramic reproduction cartridges. The second curve is intended for equipment fitted with magnetic reproduction cartridges where the output voltage is dependent on the frequency of the recorded signal the voltage output is directly proportional to the frequency of the recorded signal; that is: the voltage doubles as the recorded frequency doubles.

The audio quality of LPs has increased greatly since their inception. While early LP recordings were monophonicstereophony had been demonstrated in and Alan Blumlein had patented Stereophonic sound in Unsuccessful attempts were made to create stereophonic records starting in the s, including Emory Cook 's "binaural" LPs using two precisely spaced tracks on the record one track for each channel which had to be played with two monaural pick-ups on a tuning-fork-shaped tonearm.

The modern system ultimately released by Audio Fidelity Records in November uses two modulation angles, equal and opposite 45 degrees from vertical and so perpendicular to each other. It can also be thought of LP using traditional horizontal modulation for the sum of left and right channels monomaking it essentially compatible with simple mono recordings, and vertical-plane modulation for the difference of the two channels.

The composition of vinyl used to press records a blend of polyvinyl chloride and polyvinyl acetate has varied considerably over the years. Virgin vinyl is preferred, but during the s energy crisisit became commonplace to use recycled vinyl. Sound quality suffered, with increased ticks, pops, and other surface noises. Using a biscuit of grams of vinyl had been the standard. Records in different novelty shapes have also been produced. Many critics have expressed skepticism regarding the cost and quality of HD records.

The audio engineering software was created with mastering engineers Scott Hull and Darcy Propera four-time Grammy winner. The demonstration offered the first simulations of what HD Vinyl records are likely to sound like, ahead of actual HD vinyl physical record production.

Loibl discussed the Perfect Groove software at a presentation titled "Vinyl 4. Disc jockeys or DJs in clubs still frequently use vinyl records, as cueing tracks from cassette tapes is too slow and CDs did not allow creative playback options until The term "DJ", which had always meant a person who played various pieces of music on the radio originally 78s, then 45s, then tape cartridges and reels; now cuts from CDs or tracks on a computer — a play on the horse-racing term " jockey " — Album) also come to encompass all kinds of skills in " scratching " record playback manipulation and mixing dance musicrapping over the music or even playing musical instrumentsbut the original dance club non-radio definition was simply somebody who played records, alternating between two turntables.
