If you ever lose your engagement ring, check the bird bath.

Types of Ancient Greek Medicine What do these three have in common? Asclepius Chiron Hippocrates Have you heard of a healing god of Greece called Asclepius or Asculapius? He was Apollo's son, but his divine parentage didn't keep him alive after he became too good at his craft, depriving the Underworld gods of their denizens. 10 Best Tools for Teachers and Students to Use in 2014 All teachers have a goal to establish clear, friendly, but authoritative communication with students and their parents. Parent meetings are not the most relaxed environment for the teachers to share their expectations and plans, which is why many educators have started using online tools to make this process easier. As a teacher, I have been using many web-based tools to bring some fun into the classes and make the communication with my students and their parents more effective. I’ve chosen some of the most useful tools to present in this list, which will hopefully be implemented in the teaching techniques of an increased number of educators during the upcoming year. 1.
Greek Medicine The ancient Greeks initially regarded illness as a divine punishment and healing as, quite literally, a gift from the gods. However, by the 5th century BCE, there were attempts to identify the material causes for illnesses rather than spiritual ones and this led to a move away from superstition towards scientific enquiry, although, in reality, the two would never be wholly separated. Greek medical practitioners, then, began to take a greater interest in the body itself and to explore the connection between cause and effect, the relation of symptoms to the illness itself and the success or failure of various treatments.
Mrs. Gearhart Instructional Software - Software and Web Sites Introduction: As a technology integration advisor for the elementary level, it is my responsibility to be familiar with a wide range of software and web sites.

With a price tag almost three times the norm (13 talents), the beautiful black horse stood taller than the normal Macedonian steed but was considered too wild and unmanageable, rearing up against anyone who came near him.

5 Steps To Put The Brakes on Back Talk As a parent, the words “No, I won’t,” or “You do it,” from our kids is enough to make us cringe. In fact, back talk is the number one parenting complaint from all the parents I’ve worked with—and it can be so hard to get kids to respond to our requests without whining, eye-rolling, or simply ignoring us that many of us can’t help but snip back, “You’ll do it because I said so,” or “Don’t you dare talk to me that way!” Back talk might be annoying and, at times, infuriating, but it’s a common side-effect of growing up and gaining independence. At all ages, kids need a strong sense of personal power on an emotional level. When they can’t get it because we’re ordering them around or doing everything for them, they lash out with words. It’s a typical “fight or flight” response: since they can’t exactly move into their own apartment (flight), they’ll fight back by testing limits and trying to get a reaction.

Plutarch tells the story of how a 12-year old Alexander won the horse: A horse dealer offered the horse to Allexander's father, Philip II of Macedonia, for the enormous sum of 13 talents. Since no one could tame the animal, Philip wasn't interested, but Alexander was and promised to pay for the horse should he fail to tame it.
