Of Cabbages and Kings – EIDOLON
Latin I got from my father, who had been a priest at the time of the Latin mass. Years after he left the priesthood and started a family, he still would give the principal parts of curse words to alleviate the pain of stubbed toes and hammer-crushed thumbnails: “Dango, dangere, dangi, dangtus” was one of his milder expostulations.

Hypatia – What do we really know? | The Renaissance Mathematicus
Hypatia’s murder has been exploited over the centuries by those wishing to bash the Catholic Church but also by those wishing to defend Cyril, who characterise her as an evil woman.

Some Concrete Suggestions post-SCS by Yurie Hong
The racist incidents at the SCS in San Diego prompted many strong reactions ranging from shock and surprise to anger and despair as well as skepticism and dismissiveness. Many have already written statements and responses to the incidents (there’s a great roundup on the SCS blog here.) Outrage at the outrageous is appropriate and ‘hard conversations’ are good, but for any of this to matter, feelings must be funnelled into concrete action. The question that, I hope, is on everyone’s mind is, “What can we actually do to change things?”
