Word For The Day, Wednesday, March 13, 2013-- purview
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
hear it pronounced
1. the range of operation, authority, control, concern, etc.
2. the range of vision, insight, or understanding.
a. that which is provided or enacted in a statute, as distinguished from the preamble.
b. the purpose or scope of a statute.
4. the full scope or compass of any document, statement, subject, book, etc.
122575; Middle English purveu < Anglo-French: past participle of purveier to purvey
1. scope, responsibility, compass, extent.
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification.
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
I’ll be leaving for the airport in a few hours. I will grade any late homework from there.
“We will be able to watch the World Cup on Pay-purview”.
Well, you swiped my sentence.
Obama seems to thimk that his purview over matters in the USA is much larger than the Constitution allows.
You're my first student today. I'm glad you got "pay purview" out of the way early. It was my first thought as well.
Hope you have a nice flight and free movies.
I hate to pay purview.
Purview is what my cat sees. If you say that would be purrview...my cat doesn’t really put his heart into it so he never really purrs or meows, it’s just a slightly squinted indifferent gaze, a truncated pur, a wheezy me, me, and a quiet ow as he walks away.
He does have one good quality.....he ain’t twins.
I went to the thread and saw I was late to the party with the “pay purview”... sorry.
Where ya going?
Headed for Dallas. My son lives north of there.
Going to see 3 of my 8 grandkids.
High tech smoke
I take a generally purview of Zerobama and his fellow statist gangsters.
Good game last night. The Bruins had the 2-0 shutout going for about 55 minutes. Then the Penguins broke the dam and scored 3 times to win.
I know there’s a new one, but I haven’t watched it yet. I’m a few behind.
Haha - that was funny!
(Made it thru security and awaiting boarding.)
I figured I would get some “pay purview” but I didn’t see the cat thing coming. Cute!
A++ pertaining to poorview pun.
A+++ for the link to the Lyin’ Whinin’ King.
You would have gotten a cat reference from me, if it hadn’t already been done.
You should have some beautiful weather this week in the Dallas area!!
Yes— the weekend looks like it will hit 80. No rain in sight.
Is that a spinoff of the old “dog ate my homework” excuse?
It is 58 and sunny-supposed to be nice here for all of spring break week-have a great trip and visit-
Obama thinks the current mess
Is only in his personal purview
Whenever he can use the media
To give him a high five or two
He claims he had nothing to do
With stopping the tours and such
Of OUR house, but a few memos
Prove he did at least that much
He called for the closing of parks
And for threats of tainted meat-
But now, some whistleblowers will
Make sure he has pure crow to eat...
All this childishness of holding taxpayers for ransom by ruining everything to make them pay is a bit like that old phrase attributed to some Caledonian chieftan about (I think) the Roman general Agricola and his slash and burn warfare-they make a desert and call it peace...
on board now. Over and out.
You realize if SU wins this afternoon, they play Pitt tomorrow?
So that’s why the Cardinals hurried up and picked someone.
Yes, they wanted to watch the Orangemen on ESPN.
Except the Irish bishops.
Thank you-have a great trip...
We should know soon who has been chosen-
the lights in the rooms near the balcony have come on....
Hey, Lib Activist: Redefining marriage and passing other legislative actions to support twisted lifestyles and the current amoral climate is NOT within your purview, you perv you
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina
I thought they said he would be Francis.......hmmm, maybe not.
I hope you remembered the wookie hoth moan when they closed the doors.
Do you know anything about the new Pope? I am wondering if he will be more liberal as the media claims “so many” want....
His Wiki page looks good.
The EneMedia isn’t pleases, which is also good.
I sincerely doubt he will be more liberal. He named himself Francis after St. Francis...that is interesting.
I have to laugh when the gay Shep carries on about a younger more progressive Pope.....little does he know God has a firm hand on His Church. It was never going to happen.
I am thrilled with Pope Francis.......knew I would be.
St. Francis told the Pope in his time that the Church needed to be reformed......and Pope Francis would know that and more....I suspect that the progressives will not be pleased with just what he will reform.
Seems this guy came in second to Pope Benedict last time around.
It seems there is already some Catholic bashing going on on a thread I saw-that is disheartening.
Mr. T5 went to a Jesuit school, and my favorite prof in college was a Jesuit-he was no liberal, in the sense of the word I understand, but he did advise questioning everything and believed we should all aggressively spread the word of God. He was called a militant by a lot of people who didn’t like his views.
I’d like to see Nancy Pelosi and CINOs like her who are public figures and advocate abortion get publicly called out and threatened with excommunicatuion, but I guess I’m dreaming...,
The media doesn’t know much about the Jesuits if they think that-the order was, I think started by a soldier-sort of like Bishop Germanus of Britain in the 5th century, who was a retired general-he was a militant, a questioner and educator, too.
I think the left is hoping for a liberal like some professor from a Jesuit college in America.....well, he is a Jesuit from Latin America, NOT here. Argentina is 97% Catholic...a lot more conservative than American universities.
Twitterworld is upset that Pope Francis opposes abortion and gay marriage......what did the not expect him to be Catholic?
