Nico di Angelo Nico di Angelo is a fourteen year old Greek demigod son of Hades and the mortal Maria di Angelo. He is also the younger brother of the late Bianca di Angelo and the half brother of Hazel Levesque. He is known in the Underworld as the "Ghost King" after taking the title from King Minos. History Nico di Angelo was born sometime in the early 1930's in Venice, Italy[1] before Hades and his brothers took an oath to have no more children. After what the siblings thought was a month in the Lotus Hotel (which was actually approximately seventy years), they were taken out by a lawyer. Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Titan's Curse Nico first appears with his sister, in a military school called Westover Hall, in Bar Harbor, Maine. The Battle of the Labyrinth Nico is first seen through the Iris message that Bianca sent to Percy. Nico decides to find the soul of someone who cheated death and trade it for Bianca's. Percy still saves Nico, and convinces him to try and summon Bianca's spirit again.

by the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance A fresh news item impacting religion. This column is updated more or less weekly: 2014-APR-02: About natural and human-made disasters: Major natural or human-made disasters continue to happen, like the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, mass murders, tsunamis, hurricanes, 9/11, etc. Many people ask if God can do anything, then why does he not prevent such tragedies? That question has a whole area of study associated with it, called Theodicy. If God is omniscient and omnipresent, then he would know about these disasters long before they happened. Rabbi Kushner has suggested that we drop belief in one of the four attributes of God. None of these options are particularly acceptable to most believers in God.

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India Within Hinduism a large number of personal gods are worshipped as murtis. These beings are either aspects of the supreme Brahman, avatars of the supreme being, or significantly powerful entities known as devas. The exact nature of belief in regards to each deity varies between differing Hindu denominations and philosophies. Often these beings are depicted in humanoid, or partially humanoid forms, complete with a set of unique and complex iconography in each case. Similarities between Kama and Cupid, Vishwakarma and Vulcan and Indra and Zeus do lead many to hastily conclude that Hindu mythology is similar to Greek mythology. The gods of Greek mythology became masters of the universe by allegedly overthrowing the Titans, an earlier race of powerful beings, who in turn had become powerful by overcoming Giants.
