    We are living in a world rapidly evolving away from the mental constructs and language of the last 375 years. These ideas can be traced to the Treaty of Westphalia ending the 30 Years War in 1648 and Grotius proposal of a system of International Law in the same era. The ideas were then extended through the development of state warfare culminating in the Napoleonic Wars.

    The Not-so-Nice Origins and Meanings of the Word "Nice" Msgr. Charles Pope • November 24, 2015 • Words can change meaning over time—sometimes dramatically. For example, "manufactured" originally meant "handmade" (manu (hand) + facere (make)). The word "decimate" used to mean "to reduce by a tenth" (decem = ten); now people usually use it mean "to wipe out completely." The list of examples could go on and on. Yes, words do change meaning over time.One word that has changed meaning dramatically over time is "nice." Today it is an overused word that usually means pleasant, kind, or easygoing. In our...

    PJ Media ^ | 11/23/2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    <p>Here is a list of a few trendy words, overused, politicized, and empty of meaning, that now plague popular communications.</p> <p>"Intersection" How many times have we read a writer, columnist, pundit, or job applicant self-describe himself with this strange word? Here's an example: "Joe Blow is a social theorist working at the intersection of class oppression, racial stereotyping, and transgendered emergence."? Or: "Amanda Lopez writes at the intersection of Latina identity, Foucauldian otherness, and social media." Most of the time "intersection" exists only in the grandiose mind of the writer. It is a patent though feeble attempt to become a threefer or fourfer on the race/gender/generic victim/revolutionary activist scale. The intersected topics are individually irrelevant -- and all the more so when cobbled together. The use of "intersection" is a postmodern way of plastering bumper-sticker narcissisms without writing, "I am an identity-studies person without much knowledge of literature, history, or languages, but am desperately trying to convey expertise of some sort by piling up a bunch of pseudo-disciplines that credential my victimhood activism."</p>

    Issue appeared to be isolated to translating words relating to homosexuality Google Inc. (GOOG) came under fire from LBGT (lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender) petition site, over flaws in its Translator Service, which led to translations to some languages yielding homophobic slurs. Google has now fixed the issue and apologized for its mistake. The controversy came after people noticed that when translating neutral words in foreign languages pertaining to homosexuality, the English translations at times suggested English colloquialisms that are commonly considered homophobic slurs among native speakers. This controversial vernacular was also peculiar as searches for neutral foreign equivalents...

So here are seven more words you didnt know had Christian origins. 1) Goodbye Goodbye (also goodby, good bye, or good-bye), comes from the older English term godbwye, which is a contraction of God be with ye. (God be with ye = godbwye) The French (adieu) and Spanish (adios) words for parting ways are also related to commending the person to God. [There are 6 more at the link]

Sharpton will play a clip of the president, and then simply rehash, verbatim, whatever Obama just said, the Beacon noted. As the reverend isnt particularly regarded for his eloquence, his balance or any real depth on his program, perhaps he can be forgiven for this curious habit. Now, its no secret that...

A teacher can walk students through the lab, pointing out the most interesting sights.

WInter 2013 A number of notable recent books, including Joseph Stiglitzs The Price of Inequality and Timothy Noahs The Great Divergence, lay out in disheartening detail the growing inequality of income and opportunity in the United States, along with the decline of the middle class. The aristocracy of family so deplored by Jefferson seems upon us; the counter-aristocracy of merit that long defined America as the land of opportunity has receded. These writers emphasize global, technological, and sociopolitical trends in their analyses. But...

    Our words have a job to do in our lives. Now, I know that there's people that believe that words are insignificant, but let's see what The Bible says. In Matthew 12:36 Jesus said, "But I say to you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgement." That word idle means inactive or unemployed. So, our words should be doing something. It would be unjust for God to hold us accountable for our words not doing anything if they don't have the power to do anything. So, obviously God thinks...

    The Bible has a lot to say about your mouth. God has connected your mouth to every area of your life. Your words are producing your life. People need to understand the power of their words. The power God has given their words. God gave you a mouth and told man to subdue the earth. How was man going to subdue the earth? Just like God by the words of his mouth. God made you in his image and in his likeness so your words have to have power. How could God make you in his image and in his...

    I want to talk about the power of words on a very practicle level because words really are framing your life. Think about it, words shape your thinking that's why the scripture says, be transformed by the renewing of your mind, you renew your mind with words. Words influence what you believe that's why the scripture says, faith cometh by hearing. Also words influence your actions, what you think influences what you believe and what you believe influences your actions that's why the scripture says, faith without works is dead. Every action has a consequence. In James 3:2-8 James talks...

    What's your issue in life? The issues of life come out of your heart (spirit) Pro.4:23. Do not look for change on the outside until you change the inside. Trying to change the outside without changing the inside is only a temporary fix. If you want to change your actions change your inner programming, what's on the inside of you. Your inner programming determines your actions. Your actions come out of your heart (Mark 7:20-23). And remember as a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Pro. 23:7). You put things on the inside of you by the words...

    You might be going through a tough time right now, but let me just tell you that problem can't stand against your answer. Your answer is found in the word of God. What is the word of God, it's God speaking to you. It's God informing you of what He has spoken concerning your problem, that's your answer. Understand this, God has already spoken your answer not your problem. And there's no problem that can stand against the word of God. Your answer is much more powerful than your problem. Notice Romans 8:2 says, "For the law of the spirit...

    Like every president, Barack Obama has his generally-accepted strengths and weaknesses. His speech-giving ability is, without a doubt, one of his greatest assets, but in Florida over the weekend the man made an error almost identical to one made earlier by Vice President Joe Biden. Needless to say, public speaking is not one of Joe Bidens greatest strengths. Speaking to a roaring crowd, the president said that American manufacturers are making products that we can sell around the world, stamped with three proud words. What are they? The president continued, separating each word for emphasis: Made in the USA. Watch...

    Do you need to reach for the dictionary to double-check the definition of "F-Bomb" and "sexting"? Probably not. But now you could if you wanted to. The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary has added "F-Bomb" and "sexting" to its list of new dictionary entries for 2012 along with the likes of "mash-up," "aha moment," "cloud computing" and "earworm." (An earworm is a song or tune you just can't get our of your head.)

    God gave Moses an instrument through which He would do great signs and wonders, a rod. It was God's will to deliver the children of Isreal and his pleasure to show his power on their behalf. And it's his pleasure to show his power on your behalf. With the rod in Moses hand God demonstrated his power to bring his will to pass. But, notice Moses always said what would be done first. He would speak first then God would demonstrate his power. So, Moses words was an important role in seeing God's power manifested. And your words are important...
