Мордокнига и прочие неприятности

Мордокнига и прочие неприятности

Почему столько шуму из-за американских спецслужб, требовавших информацию о пользователях социальных сетей? Все эти одноклассники сами про себя публикуют все подробности. Что это за информация, которая есть у провайдеров и которую нельзя найти в записях пользователей?

Йога

Йога

Все тренеры по йоге в один голос утверждают, что самая трудная поза — это випасана (VIP-asana). Для её выполнения требуется оловянный взгляд, презрительное отношение к окружающим, костюм от Версаче, часы за миллион, а главное — связи, как минимум, в местной администрации, а в идеале в Кремле.

Latin abbreviations

There are a number of Latin abbreviations which are sometimes used in English texts. Here are the commonest ones with their English equivalents:
e.g. for example
cf. compare
i.e. in other words
v. consult
viz. namely
etc. and so forth
sc. which means
et al. and other people
ca. approximately
The rule about using these Latin abbreviations is very simple: don't use them. Their use is only appropriate in special circumstances in which brevity is at a premium, such as in footnotes.

the future condition of the sexes

To insinuate to the common people, therefore, the inconsistency of our Saviour's doctrine with the law of Moses, they [the Sadducees] supposed a case of “seven brethren, who successively married the same woman," (agreeably to a precept in the law to that purpose,) and, with a sneer, I suppose asked, “ whose wife she should be in the resurrection ?" To which our Lord replies, that “in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels in heaven." Matt, xxii. 30.

From this passage the ingenious Dr. Priestley (with St. Hilary, and some Others of the primitive fathers) infers, not only that " there will be no marriages" but also, that “there will be no distinction of sexes in heaven". A strange and unwarrantable conclusion! which the Scriptures do not countenance, and our reason, or our feelings, at least, revolt at the idea.
