Why Women Love to Test Your Boundaries One question that I get a lot from men is, “Why do women give men ‘shit tests’”? The very label “shit test” shows just how little most men really understand women. You see, the best metaphor that I ever came across to describe how the masculine and the feminine ideally interact is that of a river and a riverbank.The feminine is like the river: fluid, temperamental, yearning to be lead, directed, and take on the shape of its container.
Visual Thinking Evolution A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common, but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing.
Roman Social Class and Public Display Social Classes in the Late Republic Rome was a highly hierarchial and class-conscious society, but there was the possibility of mobility between most classes (indicated in the diagram above by dotted lines) because by the second century BCE class was no longer determined solely by birth. The classes described below superseded the old patrician/plebeian distinction, though certain elements of dress and religious positions and rituals were still reserved for patricians. There was a large gulf between the wealthy upper classes (the senatorial and equestrian classes, shown on the pediment of the temple above), and the poorer lower classes, though it was still possible—although quite difficult—to move upwards by acquiring sufficient wealth. Upper Classes Senatorial class (senatores): The basis for this class was political.
Standards & Guidelines for Crochet & KNitting The publishers, fiber, needle and hook manufacturers and yarn members of the Craft Yarn Council have worked together to set up a series of guidelines and symbols to bring uniformity to yarn, needle and hook labeling and to patterns, whether they appear in books, magazines, leaflets or on yarn labels. Our goal is to make it easier for industry manufacturers, publishers and designers to prepare consumer-friendly products and for consumers to select the right materials for a project and complete it successfully.

American Thinker: Why are liberals so gullible? The Democratic National Convention is a great time to reflect on the Conundrum of The Century: Why are our liberal buddies so amazingly gullible? Why do they fall for the most obvious scam artists? Why, when Hillary crashes, do they slobber all over the next edition of God's Anointed on Earth? When Obama went body surfin' in Hawaii before the convention, we had a chance to hear The Aloha State's very own brand of liberal love. The Honolulu Star-Bulletin quoted one sun-tanned beauty saying: A story have staying power I assume that the Sept. 11 attacks will have an effect on people for decades to come. I often associate this effect with the assassination of JFK, another story that keeps evolving. And now, once again, on the 100th anniversary of its sinking, the Titanic is a story of interest. The ship may still sit on the bottom of the Atlantic, but fascination with it is all around us.
The Roman Gladiator: The Rock Star of the Roman Empire A gladiator was a professional fighter who fought other gladiators and even animals in amphitheaters around the Roman Republic and Roman Empire. Gladiators fought for over 600 years of Rome’s history, evolving from modest ceremonial combats into grand entertainment spectaculars, filled with violence and gore. These battles, often fought to a bloody death, were adored by the Roman citizens, as were the gladiators themselves. The word gladiator comes from the Latin gladiatores, or “swordsmen”, taken from the Latin word gladius, which was a short sword used by the legionaries. Gladiators were by no means as high ranking on the Roman status ladder as a soldier, but they were nonetheless regarded highly in Roman society.
Tubular cast off (it's pretty) includes 4 illustrations--click any illustration to enlargeThe tubular cast OFF described today is identical to the tubular cast ON of the last post in every way but one: you create them differently. But when the creation process is complete, these two are identical twins. The structure of the fabric is the same, they look the same, they stretch the same. Knitters often complain that their casts on look so different from their casts off, but after this post, YOU, dear reader, will no longer be able to complain about this particular annoyance. photo-eye Don Hong-Oai Kevin O'ConnellConventional Entropy Opening and Artist Reception, Friday, February 7th, 5–7pm Exhibition continues through April 5th, 2014. photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by Denver-based photographer Kevin O'Connell from his series Conventional Entropy.

Characteristics of a ‘good story’ I get this question a lot these days: What makes a story a story? Every time I think I know the answer, someone changes the question.
