You too? Excellent. Most schools around here give only Good Friday off, but mine always takes two days. This is the first year I'll actually be able to enjoy it, though, as they always follow the Catholic calendar.

I was cursed with white-as-a-ghost syndrome... I wonder what it would be like to be yellow. I could always go on a carrot binge and see how I look yellow. Or I could get a tan like this...

Doctor who?

Hugh Laurie is still playing "House", right?  Huh







Ok, just kidding.  Matt Smith did an excellent job, as I thought he would ever since those last twenty seconds of the New Year's episode.  The regeneration itself seemed very Tom Bakerish, while the character seems to incorporate the best aspects of the Doctors of years past.  Looks to be the beginning of an exciting season.

I see. Though it intrigues me that you have a whole channel devoted to space travel shows. We get it already: Capt. Kirk was Canadian. Tongue

Easter Monday is a state holiday in Maryland and has been for a long time.  And the week before was Spring Break for the public schools, with yesterday being a Teacher Work Day in this country.  So my children had a long holiday this year.  (while I still had class as the college's break was in March)

That would make sense, as Maryland is historically a Catholic state.

I'm in the process of trying to decide what foreign language to take for school. I have the options of Spanish, Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Latin, and Arabic. Any thoughts on those choices? What would you take? I'm guessing that Spanish would be easiest, but Russian might be more interesting for me. How many classes does it take to actually be able to read books in a language? For instance, if I wanted to read Dostoevsky or someone in the original Russian, would I be able to do that after a few semesters taking Russian, or would it take a lot more time/learning?

Depends on for what purpose you are learning. Many people in the United States know Spanish and French, so if you are interested in speaking it with someone else, they are good choices. Latin is most appropriate for those who want to learn the English language better, but Chinese, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic are all good choices for someone who wants their language skills to be a job asset--not many know these languages, and therefore being able to speak them would allow for one to function as a translator, with enough study.

With any foreign language, one studies first the grammar and vocabulary, for about the first six semesters. After that, one begins to study the literature and to write compositions. I'd say it would take about five to seven years experience with the language before one would become competent enough to read the newspaper, and several more before one could read something as complicated as Dostoevsky.

Ouch! I had no idea it took so long, though that makes sense. I wonder if I would have the stick-to-it-tiveness to keep up for that long to learn a language in depth. Or maybe I should just take a couple Spanish or French classes and be done with it.  Undecided Anyway, thanks for the info Smiley

I'm in the process of trying to decide what foreign language to take for school. I have the options of Spanish, Italian, French, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Latin, and Arabic. Any thoughts on those choices? What would you take? I'm guessing that Spanish would be easiest, but Russian might be more interesting for me. How many classes does it take to actually be able to read books in a language? For instance, if I wanted to read Dostoevsky or someone in the original Russian, would I be able to do that after a few semesters taking Russian, or would it take a lot more time/learning?

Is German not an option?? German would be my recommendation.

You could always learn Esperanto in your free time. It would take about 3 weeks to be fluent.

Interestingly, no, they don't have German. You'd think if they have things like Arabic, they would have German, but nope. It's a Catholic University, maybe they're still mad at Luther or something  Tongue

When I was a TA for Engineering Statics, I tried to make Quizzes attention getting based on the trends of that time (1996).  I think one of my quizzes involved determining whether a bridge would hold up for a group of sorority girls traveling to a ski area.  I hope this helps?   Huh

Here is the percentage increase in new members for the last 5 months from the previous year (not including the current month):

From 3/09 - 3/10 - 15.5% increase
From 2/09 - 2/10 - 23.9% increase
From 1/09 - 1/10 - 143.3% increase

From 12/08 - 12/09 - 91.2% increase
From 11/08 - 11/09 - 182.8% increase

While the period of Great Lent demonstrated a smaller increase - huge increases have occurred from 11/09 - 1/10.  People are flocking to the high level of discourse.   Wink

A hot cup of tea, the gentle hum of a computer churning away at billions of operations a second, a crisp (very) early morning breeze from an open window, and a good book... that my friends, is paradise.
