Missouri simply had no answer to the bombardment of three pointers Princeton put up.

Missouri did not play badly but they did start to look defeated … Continue reading Princeton Tigers roar through Missouri Kitty Cats

Here’s an interesting word. The is old English from the Latin and means “wall”. So first it means the wall of a body cavity. Then the wall of a hollow structure. And then it came to stand for the rules for opposite sex visiting in dormitories – rules that kept a “wall” of separation between the sexes. And finally it became the name of the prehistoric art painted on the walls of caves 30-40,000 yrs ago which came to be called parietal art. Handprints at Cueva De Las Manos.

By Lord Buckbeak 7/28/22 It goes without question that God has placed us, completely and miraculously, on this earth for a purpose. But what is that purpose? The Westminster Catechism asks the question this way: “What is the chief end of man? The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.” This is certainly a clear and direct answer to the question of purpose for all sentient, created beings – from angels to archangels, cherubim to seraphim, men, women and children – we are all created to glorify God by enjoying his presence forever. But this … Continue reading What is the purpose of life?

By Lazar Berman October 19, 2011 With this month’s announcement from Stockholm that Daniel Shechtman won the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Israel adds to its growing list of Nobel laureates. Since 2002, six Israelis have won Nobel prizes. Significantly, none of the Israeli laureates won the Peace Prize, which does not necessarily indicate any great intellectual achievement (or sometimes any achievement at all). Many vastly larger countries with highly educated populations have not outperformed tiny Israel. France has produced six Nobel laureates in the same span, Germany and Russia five, Canada two, and India only one.

If you want to know what postmodernism is, or just what the word means, you don’t get much help from either its advocates or interpreters. Most words that label theories bear some relation to their content: words like “evolution” or “Communism” give you at least the beginning of an understanding of what they are about. But words, like “modernism,” that refer only to an unspecified time have the drawback not only of omitting any … Continue reading What Does Postmodernism Really Amount To?

A note on the meaning of STEM. This is an acronym that stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Recently it has been modified to STEMM which adds Medicine. This country has long had a shortage of high school and college students willing to pursue the ‘hard’ sciences precisely because they are hard. Too many have taken the easier and fairly worthless route of the Arts because they do not require the rigor and precision of thought required to excel in or even pass STEM subjects. It also needs to be noted that STEM subjects and classes require the student … Continue reading STEM does not become STEAM just because you add an ‘A’
