Social entrepreneurs are tackling the world’s most urgent issues, but they often work under intense pressure in chronically under-resourced environments.

Ways of Interpreting Myth Ways of Interpreting Myth(LINKS) In a recent article on flood myths, Alan Dundes wrote: "Theories of myth interpretation may be roughly divided into two major groupings: literal and symbolic.

She is the Goddess of the mind, of crafts, artisans and trade guilds, and did not have a martial character until She was identified with Athene, who was brought to south-western Italy by Greek settlers. She was worshipped by workers and craftspeople, and was the patroness of the arts and learning, of engraving, weaving, painting, sculpture, dyeing, spinning, and teachers and students. Menrfa could be considered a Goddess of Healing as well. Her temple in Veii, the famous Portonaccio temple, contained three cella or chambers, implying a triad of Deities were worshipped there, probably Menrfa, Turan, and Artimi (Artemis) or Aplu (Apollo). The name Menrfa is cognate to the Latin Minerva, which finds its roots in the Latin mens, or "mind, reason, intellect".
