  2. There are other languages too:
    with "hakuna matata" meaning "no worries"!
    And has its roots under Swahili.
    Ubuntu by my defnition, from the Bantu languages:
    Ubuntu is to connect with others on the emotional level, to feel "with" the rest of humanity. This include the intellectual connection with humanity as well. In this state of Ubuntu one is self-confident and lives to serve humanity the best! Otherwise I side with Nelson Mandela: that one is diminished or distressed, more or less, when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.

    You can also look up "Ubuntu" on Wikipedia! Cheers!

  3. A couple of words for today: Heath - renewal in common English for the fireplace home??? At least, reminds me of /the warm/ place of the good family (and of course, the motherly love for family, at least traditionally, escaping gun-fire from militant feminists) and and /the/ celebration for the steady family, (attached)common homes in England, fx.
    Dvelve: meditation that I find worthwhile and dvelve is another word for it with the "depth-v" for yourself and work of study! "Composure is important!", remembering the words of PM Neville Chamberlain and declaration of war: "...with calmness and courage!"

    First written to Facebook on the 25. April, 2012 or so!

  4. "*Paleontology or Palaeontology* (play /ˌpælɪɒnˈtɒlədʒi/) is the study of prehistoric life. It includes the study of fossils to determine organisms' evolution and interactions with each other and their environments (their paleoecology). As a "historical science" it attempts to explain causes rather than conduct experiments to observe effects. Palaeontological observations have been documented as far back as the 5th century B.C.E. The science became established in the 18th century as a result of Georges Cuvier's work on comparative anatomy, and developed rapidly in the 19th century. The term itself originates from Greek: παλαιός (palaios) meaning "old, ancient," ὄν, ὀντ- (on, ont-) meaning "being, creature" and λόγος (logos) meaning "speech, thought, study."
    Palaeontology lies on the border between biology and geology, and shares with archaeology a border that is difficult to define. It now uses techniques drawn from a wide range of sciences, including biochemistry, mathematics and engineering. Use of all these techniques has enabled palaeontologists to discover much of the evolutionary history of life, almost all the way back to when Earth became capable of supporting life, about 3,800 million years ago. As knowledge has increased, paleontology has developed specialized sub-divisions, some of which focus on different types of fossil organisms while others study ecology and environmental history, such as ancient climates." - From the article of Wikipedia, 2012/05/10!

  5. Of course, the word above is more interesting when you contrast it with this:
    "*Archaeology, or archeology*[1] (from Greek ἀρχαιολογία, archaiologia – ἀρχαῖος, arkhaios, "ancient"; and -λογία, -logia, "-logy[2]"), is the study of human activity, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the material culture and environmental data that they have left behind, which includes artifacts, architecture, biofacts and cultural landscapes (the archaeological record). Because archaeology employs a wide range of different procedures, it can be considered to be both a science and a humanity,[3] and in the United States it is thought of as a branch of anthropology,[4] although in Europe it is viewed as a separate discipline.
    Archaeology studies human history from the development of the first stone tools in eastern Africa 3.4 million years ago up until recent decades.[5] (Archaeology does not include the discipline of paleontology.) It is of most importance for learning about prehistoric societies, when there are no written records for historians to study, making up over 99% of total human history, from the Palaeolithic until the advent of literacy in any given society.[3] Archaeology has various goals, which range from studying human evolution to cultural evolution and understanding culture history.[6]" - From the article of Wikipedia, 2012/05/10!

  6. The Introduction of a New Term: Nonsens-Evangelists
    by Leonardo F. Olsnes-Lea on Saturday, 29 September 2012 at 01:24 CEST.

    I (...hereby... well, well now) introduce the World to: _nonsens-evangelists_ (and that this, potentially can include *any*body, warning, warning). This is contrary to the religious evangelists who have been unjustifiably under the fire (as from guns) for so long!

    Also remember that the Evangelical-Lutheran Church is also on my good side here and outside this new term.

  8. connoisseurs - [kon-uh-sur, -soor]
    noun 1. a person who is especially competent to pass critical judgments in an art, particularly one of the fine arts, or in matters of taste: a connoisseur of modern art.
    2. a discerning judge of the best in any field: a connoisseur of horses.
    -From Dictionary.com
    I think I can add "knower of taste", "a person of taste".

  10. The Cadeceus (from Wikipedia): "The [C]aduceus (☤; /kəˈdjuːsiːəs/ or /kəˈdjuːʃəs/; from Greek κηρύκειον kērukeion "herald's staff"[2] ) is the staff carried by Hermes in Greek mythology. The same staff was also borne by heralds in general, for example by Iris, the messenger of Hera. It is a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings. In Roman iconography it was often depicted being carried in the left hand of Mercury, the messenger of the gods, guide of the dead and protector of merchants, shepherds, gamblers, liars, and thieves.[3]"
    - My own word added: Cadeceus - word from Mercury of the Gods. Fits in nicely with the notion of monks as practitioners of medicine with the current authority of the Christian Churches and others, like from the temples of the far east.

  11. From Dictionary.com, the "competitor":
    *moral* [mawr-uh l, mor-] adjective
    1. of, pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong; ethical: moral attitudes.
    2. expressing or conveying truths or counsel as to right conduct, as a speaker or a literary work; moralizing: a moral novel.
    3. founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom: moral obligations.
    4. capable of conforming to the rules of right conduct: a moral being.
    5. conforming to the rules of right conduct ( opposed to immoral ): a moral man.

    *morale* [muh-ral] noun
    emotional or mental condition with respect to cheerfulness, confidence, zeal, etc., especially in the face of opposition, hardship, etc.: the morale of the troops.

  14. While "mensa" is the Latin word for table, I also want to mention, for the fun of it,
    mensa sana corpore sano (which means "a sound mind in a sound body")!
    Mensa is the name for the collected intelligence community of the World (well, well, at least one of them).

    One suggestion for Mensa outside religion and Latin:
    M - mind/mental
    E - education
    N - neural/nominal
    S - standards
    A - assessment

    Some other fun: I now propose mVoodoo for adding tarot-cards to it when already use bones and stones and sticks, well-known voodoo places are blasts to see! (Aside humanitarian issues.)

  15. After "System, meaning coming up...", I now "get to it" and write it too:

    sys·tem [sis-tuhm]
    noun
    1. an assemblage or combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole: a mountain system; a railroad system.
    2. any assemblage or set of correlated members: a system of currency; a system of shorthand characters.
    3. an ordered and comprehensive assemblage of facts, principles, doctrines, or the like in a particular field of knowledge or thought: a system of philosophy.
    4. a coordinated body of methods or a scheme or plan of procedure; organizational scheme: a system of government.
    5. any formulated, regular, or special method or plan of procedure: a system of marking, numbering, or measuring; a winning system at bridge.

  16. The English Language and My Competence in English as Proficiency

    English language in influence also by the tourism, in presenting a kind of universal language...
    My estimate, still: 2,4 Bn people or MORE!!!

    Upon the English language's _Significance_ by Wikipedia, I suggest you add TOURISM! I think /the/ prevalent language for tourism has been and is the English language. Also, of course, Wikipedia lists these fine reasons: "Significance"
    See also: "English-speaking world and Anglosphere Modern English, sometimes described as the first global lingua franca,[18][19] is the dominant language or in some instances even the required international language of communications, science, information technology, business, seafaring,[20] aviation,[21] entertainment, radio and diplomacy.[22]" - Tourism too, yes??? - Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language#Significance . Also, by positive confirmation, Wikipedia suggests the English users to be: Native speakers 360 million (2010)[2], L2: 375 million and 750 million EFL[3]. Unofficially, I think the number is closer to 2,4 Bn people! 2,4 BILLION PEOPLE, *that many*, a bit more than a 3rd of the World population, with Glo-Network in place and /spreading rapidly/, spread, spread, spread, BE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE...

    "Modern English, sometimes described as the first global lingua franca,[18][19] is the dominant language or in some instances even the required international language of communications, science, information technology, business, seafaring,[20]aviation,[21]entertainment, radio and diplomacy.[22] Its s..."

    I also read that Chen of money-university Yale in USA has some interesting views as reported by BBC World News. We're to look into those...

  17. To "English is fun" (!!!): A fun note on the estimates of English language users: So let's go through the English speakers again: sec. Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, some sec. China, sec./off. India, neigh. sec. Indonesia/Phillipines, sec. Malaysia, sec. Singapore (esp. Rico Hizon), various other "some" sec. parts Asia.

USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, much sec. EU (504 Mn) - totalin' 2,4 (god-d*mn) Bn PEOPLE, you "god-d*mn Wiki-counters"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-D :-D :-D

    All English language users included, primary and secondary/tertiary.

    Tertiary - language taught as 3rd language... !!!!!! - Counter to 360 + L2: 375 + 750 EFL (L3). What about you? (5 ...qui-s... - quiver, equilibrium, equivalence, ventriquilism, and quilt)

    English... now that I've learnt English since 10 (being older than 35) and interested in role-playing games of highly sophisticated English since 17 (fx. White Wolf and Games Workshop) AND reading (advanced) philosophy since 1998/2000, now in God's year of 2013, March. Result: Advanced level English Linguist!!!

    This also incl. some (first) two years (5+3) of English at Sr. High School with the GCSE. (2/2)
