Latin Dictionary and Grammar Resources - Latdict
Salvete, everyone!. Let’s talk about the newly revived television show Cosmos for a second. On the outside, this may sound like a tangent that strays far from the subject matter of Latin; however, I implore you all to listen because Cosmos has a lot to do with LatDict, its modus operandi, and its overall goal to empower everybody to know. Eventually, I found my way into the Cosmos series, which we all consider Sagan's magnum opus. It was building similar bridges over a decade ago, seeking to make the world of science accessible to anybody with a sense curiosity and a zest for adventure. Even today, the series still passes the test of time very well.

List of Latin phrases This page lists direct English translations of common Latin phrases, such as veni, vidi, vici and et cetera. Some of the phrases are themselves translations of Greek phrases, as Greek rhetoric and literature were highly regarded in ancient Rome when Latin rhetoric and literature were still maturing. The Latin letter i can be used as either a vowel or a consonant.

Geophysical Survey in Archaeological Field Evaluation This is the second edition of English Heritage guidelines on the application of geophysical survey to archaeological field evaluation first published in 1995. They are intended to help archaeologists, particularly curators, consultants and project managers, gain a better understanding of the various techniques of geophysical survey. It is also hoped that survey practitioners will find them useful in establishing a code of good practice with their clients as an aid to raising the consistency and quality of geophysical survey in archaeological evaluation. Much has changed since the first edition and the new guidelines have been extensively revised and expanded with new material including the addition of 29 colour figures. They are organised into four parts intended to group together information of most use for the different envisaged audiences: Standards for Geophysical SurveyGeophysical Survey and PlanningGuide to Choice of MethodsPractitioner's Guide to Good Practice

There is a culture of acceptance around mental health issues in academia It is all too common to see PhD students work themselves to the point of physical and mental illness in order to complete their studies. It is less common to see PhD students who feel that they are under such pressure that the only option is suicide. But it does happen. There is a culture of acceptance around mental health issues in academia – and this needs to change. Following the completion of my PhD and a short stint as a postdoc, I have recently taken up a new job as a researcher development officer at a research-intensive university. Teams like ours are fairly common in universities, thanks to funding provided following the publication of the Roberts Report in 2002.

Global Development Professionals Network Colonialism is one of those things you’re not supposed to discuss in polite company – at least not north of the Mediterranean. Most people feel uncomfortable about it, and would rather pretend it didn’t happen. In fact, that appears to be the official position. In the mainstream narrative of international development peddled by institutions from the World Bank to the UK’s Department of International Development, the history of colonialism is routinely erased. According to the official story, developing countries are poor because of their own internal problems, while western countries are rich because they worked hard, and upheld the right values and policies. And because the west happens to be further ahead, its countries generously reach out across the chasm to give “aid” to the rest – just a little something to help them along.
