About a month ago, the Dalai Lama said something about women that is just now making the rounds on Twitter . His statement, "The world will be saved by the western woman," was delivered during the Vancouver Peace Summit 2009 , which opened on the morning of Sunday, September 27th. Although I'm still trying to track down a transcript of the speech containing the above statement, the Dalai Lama participated in more than one panel discussion that day, and the event most likely to have provoked such a strongly worded declaration was the "Nobel Laureates in Dialogue: Connecting for Peace" presentation held that afternoon.
A subtle brush of the hand, an engaging smile, an encouraging glance... by the time a person reaches the half-century mark, he or she knows all your typical “come-hither” tricks.

Finally, we’re all caught up to where we should be! The excerpt today is from Memoirs of a Young Rakehell . I enjoy this novel simply because it uses the widest variety of ridiculous euphemisms I’ve ever come across in a Victorian novel (and that’s saying a good deal, since Victorians were often quite fond of euphemisms). Needless to say, Victorian Porn Fridays are NSFW. (Sometimes Victorian porn is also NSFL, just sayin’. Victorians didn’t seem to have much of a problem with incest and ephebophilia and other things like that.)

A de facto standard is a custom, convention , product, or system that has achieved a dominant position by public acceptance or market forces (such as early entrance to the market). De facto is a Latin phrase that means "concerning fact." De facto means "existing in fact," [ 1 ] or "in practice but not necessarily ordained by law" or "in practice or actuality, but not officially established." The term " de facto standard" is used in contrast with obligatory standards (also known as " de jure standards"); or to express the dominant voluntary standard, when there is more than one standard available for the same use.
A Requiem or Requiem Mass , also known as Mass for the dead (Latin: Missa pro defunctis ) or Mass of the dead (Latin: Missa defunctorum ), is a Mass celebrated for the repose of the soul or souls of one or more deceased persons, using a particular form of the Roman Missal . It is frequently, but not necessarily, celebrated in the context of a funeral . Musical settings of the propers of the Requiem Mass are also called Requiems, and the term has subsequently been applied to other musical compositions associated with death and mourning, even when they lack religious or liturgical relevance. The term is also used for similar ceremonies outside the Roman Catholic Church , especially in the Anglo-Catholic branch of Anglicanism and in certain Lutheran churches. A comparable service , with a wholly different ritual form and texts, exists in the Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches , as well as in the Methodist Church . [ 1 ]
The biopsychosocial model (abbreviated "BPS") is a general model or approach positing that biological , psychological (which entails thoughts, emotions, and behaviors), and social factors, all play a significant role in human functioning in the context of disease or illness. Indeed, health is best understood in terms of a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors rather than purely in biological terms. [ 1 ] This is in contrast to the traditional, reductionist biomedical model of medicine that suggests every disease process can be explained in terms of an underlying deviation from normal function such as a pathogen , genetic or developmental abnormality , or injury. [ 2 ] The concept is used in fields such as medicine , nursing , health psychology and sociology , and particularly in more specialist fields such as psychiatry , health psychology , family therapy , chiropractic , clinical social work , and clinical psychology .

A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation that pays returns to its investors from their own money or the money paid by subsequent investors, rather than from profit earned by the individual or organization running the operation. The Ponzi scheme usually entices new investors by offering higher returns than other investments, in the form of short-term returns that are either abnormally high or unusually consistent. Perpetuation of the high returns requires an ever-increasing flow of money from new investors to keep the scheme going. [ 1 ] The system is destined to collapse because the earnings, if any, are less than the payments to investors. Usually, the scheme is interrupted by legal authorities before it collapses because a Ponzi scheme is suspected or because the promoter is selling unregistered securities . As more investors become involved, the likelihood of the scheme coming to the attention of authorities increases. [ 1 ]
