True Story: I Was a Stripper

When I turned 18, my top priority was to "grow up" and become independent as soon as possible. To me, true independence meant never having to ask my parents for money -- though they were more than willing to provide it. I hated the fact that they paid for my car, my college tuition, my food ... I had a joe-job slinging wheatgrass at a juice bar, and I got a scholarship to help with my tuition, but living in Los Angeles ain't cheap. My meager income wasn't nearly enough to survive on, and it drove me nuts. Just before my 19th birthday, I saw an ad for an "amateur night" contest at a local strip club. Finally, the night of my big debut arrived. Paranormal Findings. Hyperpigmentation in Brown Skin. Revealed: The best and worst places to be a woman - World Politics - World.

WotWentWrong Promotional Video. Tecumseh. Tecumseh (/tɛˈkʌmsə/; March 1768 – October 5, 1813) was a Native American leader of the Shawnee and a large tribal confederacy (known as Tecumseh's Confederacy) which opposed the United States during Tecumseh's War and the War of 1812.


Tecumseh has become an iconic folk hero in American, Aboriginal and Canadian history.[1] Tecumseh grew up in the Ohio Country during the American Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian War, where he was constantly exposed to warfare.[2] With Americans continuing to encroach on Indian territory after the British ceded the Ohio Valley to the new United States in 1783, the Shawnee moved farther northwest. In 1808, they settled Prophetstown in present-day Indiana. With a vision of establishing an independent Native American nation east of the Mississippi under British protection, Tecumseh worked to recruit additional tribes to the confederacy from the southern United States.[2] Family background[edit] Early life[edit] Frontier conflicts[edit]

Farewell Ipsithilla Here is a curious little poem from the pen of the witty Catullus, but one which leaves you wondering if it is complete, if there is something else that we should know, if we are merely missing the point. It seems to be in the form of a short personal note, something like a salacious post-card which is mailed out for everyone to see, although the message is personal and private. It ihas always been assumed by literary readers that Catullus is writing a note to a local prostitute named Ipsithilla, asking for an afternoon session. I will in this paper make a correction of the name into the title "Ipsimilla" or "Lady. . . . .Ma'am", which requires some explication as in the discussion below.

Media vita in morte sumus. Media Vita In Morte Sumus is the title and first line of a Latin antiphon, which translates as In the midst of life we are in death. It was erroneously attributed to Notker the Stammerer late in the Middle Ages, but was more probably written around 750 in France. Especially popular in the Baroque period, it was also used in Hartmann von Aue's Middle High German narrative poem Der arme Heinrich (V.93f.). The Garden of Earthly Delights. The Garden of Earthly Delights, Oil-on-wood panels, 220 x 389 cm, Museo del Prado in Madrid The Garden of Earthly Delights is the modern title[1] given to a triptych painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch.

The Garden of Earthly Delights

It has been housed in the Museo del Prado in Madrid since 1939. Dating from between 1490 and 1510, when Bosch was between about 40 and 60 years old,[2] it is his best-known[3] and most ambitious complete work.[4] Art historians and critics frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life's temptations.[5] However, the intricacy of its symbolism, particularly that of the central panel, has led to a wide range of scholarly interpretations over the centuries.[6] Twentieth-century art historians are divided as to whether the triptych's central panel is a moral warning or a panorama of paradise lost.

American writer Peter S. Latin for All Occasions. Latin for All Occasions (Lingua Latina Occasionibus Omnibus) is a 1990 book by Henry Beard, and Latin for Even More Occasions (Lingua Latina Multo Pluribus Occasionibus) is a 1991 sequel. Both contain translations of modern English phrases into mostly literal Latin equivalents. The translations are mostly direct, so an English expression like "Get your ducks in a row" is translated as Anates tuas in acie instrue. The significance of having ducks lined up would presumably be a mystery to an ancient Roman, or indeed to a non-American. - Relapse Records : Death Metal, Grindcore, Extreme Metal CDs, DVDs, Vinyl, T-Shirts, Hoodies and merchandise.

Map showing countries shaded by their position in the Happy Planet Index (2006). The highest-ranked countries are bright green; the lowest are brown. The index is designed to challenge well-established indices of countries’ development, such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the Human Development Index (HDI), which are seen as not taking sustainability into account. In particular, GDP is seen as inappropriate, as the usual ultimate aim of most people is not to be rich, but to be happy and healthy.[1] Furthermore, it is believed that the notion of sustainable development requires a measure of the environmental costs of pursuing those goals.[2] Out of the 178 countries surveyed in 2006, the best scoring countries were Vanuatu, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica, and Panama, although Vanuatu is absent from all later indices.[3] In 2009 Costa Rica was the best scoring country among the 143 analyzed, followed by the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Guatemala and Vietnam.

Because most of what we have was written down by clerics, much of extant medieval poetry is religious.

The chief exception is the work of the troubadours and the minnesänger, whose primary innovation was the ideal of courtly love. Among the most famous of secular poetry is Carmina Burana, a manuscript collection of 254 poems. Twenty-four poems of Carmina Burana were later set to music by German composer Carl Orff in 1936. Examples of medieval poetry[edit] Old English religious poetry includes the poem Christ by Cynewulf and the poem The Dream of the Rood, preserved in both manuscript form and on the Ruthwell Cross. Medieval Latin literature[edit] However, much secular poetry was also written in Latin. Topics[edit] Medieval Latin poets[edit] Medieval vernacular literature[edit] One of the features of the renaissance which marked the end of the medieval period is the rise in the use of the vernacular or the language of the common people for literature.
