Home Atlanta Schola Cantorum is a 30-voice chorus specializing in the performance of sacred choral music of the Renaissance, notably the works of Josquin, Palestrina, Victoria, Tallis, and Byrd. This focus on Renaissance polyphony sets Schola apart from other Atlanta choirs. During the European Renaissance, “the world was an extremely wretched and dangerous place,” according to music critic Pierre Ruhe (December 2009, Atlanta Journal Constitution). Yet, he notes, “perhaps as a call to an otherworldly paradise, sacred church music was an escape of extraordinary, timeless beauty.” ‘Being Authentic’ is More Than Just Being Honest Of all the things the millennial generation wants out of church, authenticity may be the most important. As a twentysomething pastor who lives in Silver Lake—a very creative, diverse, and subversive neighborhood in LA—I see the need for authenticity in the hearts of my neighbors, as well as in my own heart. It's the battle cry of our generation, often expressed publicly with ironic clothing and accessories, or more privately with heart-to-heart conversations over coffee and other things we love. I think the cry for authenticity stems out of the reality that we're a generation let down by previous ones. Past ideals don't work for us.

Media's Effects on Teen Girl's Body Image & Self Esteem Before research: In order for our research question to be answered, we will print out pictures of models that the media considers to be “perfect” and show them to different girls. We will then give them a survey on how the images make them feel about their own bodies. We will survey girls ages fourteen to eighteen with all different body types to make sure we get an accurate perception of how all women think. The survey will have questions like do the images make you feel good about yourself, don’t change the way you view yourself, or bad about yourself. By tallying up the results, we will have accurate data on how the images make women feel. After research: We used the research method of survey to research our question of “Does exposure to media images of thin models effect women's self-esteem and body image?”.
The great screen taboo: people who aren't having sex Swear words: check. Sex scenes: check. Inter-racial relationships, gay relationships, unedited childbirth: check, check, check. and Professor Loses Job Who is to blame when students fail? If many students fail -- a majority even -- does that demonstrate faculty incompetence, or could it point to a problem with standards? These are the questions at the center of a dispute that cost Steven D. Aird his job teaching biology at Norfolk State University. Today is his last day of work, but on his way out, he has started to tell his story -- one that he suggests points to large educational problems at the university and in society. The university isn't talking publicly about his case, but because Aird has released numerous documents prepared by the university about his performance -- including the key negative tenure decisions by administrators -- it is clear that he was denied tenure for one reason: failing too many students.
Be Beautiful Manchester Based British Beauty Blog, Lifestyle Blog, Jewellery Blog, DIY Beauty Blog: DIY: Eye Make Up Remover - the best trick I've discovered! So a looong time ago I did a post about taking your eye make up off with olive oil. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and have noticed the skin around my eyes seems a lot more moisturised and supple. Recently however, I've added another natural ingredient to my olive oil and it seems to be working ever better. Olive oil on its own was great but I felt it tended to 'drag' the eye area a little bit, especially when I wore quite a lot of heavy make up for a night out. Removing false eye lash glue was a particular pain. So I'd done some research on what to add to olive oil so that its still as effective at removing tough, stubborn make up but with less drag and came across witch hazel.
