Wrought iron Details of ironwork on the central portal of the west facade of Notre Dame de Paris France Wrought ironwork is forged by a blacksmith using an anvil. The earliest known ironwork are beads from Jirzah in Egypt dating from BC and made from meteoric iron with the earliest use of smelted iron dates back to Mesopotamia. However, the first use of conventional smelting and purification techniques that modern society labels as true iron-working dates back to the Hittites in around BC. However, its use was primarily utilitarian for weapons and tools before the Middle Ages. Due to rusting, very little remains of early ironwork. From the medieval period, use of ironwork for decorative purposes became more common. Iron was used to protect doors and windows of valuable places from attack from raiders and was also used for decoration as can be seen at Canterbury Cathedral , Winchester Cathedral and Notre Dame de Paris.

The Wadcutter OK, how many of you read the title and immediately thought, “Oh great, another re-hashing of the. And your next thought was probably either “2. That’s all well and good, but there’s a whale of a lot more to the kindly old wadcutter than bullseye loads for your pet K Masterpiece you do have a pet K Masterpiece, don’t you?
There’s a lot of fertile ground here, so let’s go back and start at the beginning. History of competitive pistol marksmanship and the role of the wadcutter Competitive marksmanship has been around ever since that second caveman learned how to throw a rock. It’s simple human nature that he take his newfound skill and challenge the first rock-throwing caveman to see who could throw their rock more accurately, or farther, or who could throw the bigger rock, or hit a moving target, or be the first to knock over yonder rotten stump you know, the pretty much same games we play today with guns.
As new technologies appeared, these primitive competitions evolved to keep pace, and assimilated weapon systems like slings, spears, atl-atl’s, boomerangs, bolos, throwing knives and axes, short bows, long-bows, crossbows, handcannons, muskets, rifles, pistols and shotguns. It’s entertaining to recognize that skeet, IPSC, basketball, hockey and golf all share this common origin — all are manually directed competitive events with the goal of placing a projectile on a remote target.
Even events like the javelin, discus and shot-put are related to archery flight shooting as a distance competition, and bowling and silhouette shooting are related by the need for accurate placement of the projectile with sufficient force to knock their targets down.

Academic Planning Academic disciplines ebb and flow over time as student career choices and the educational predilections of the society change. Inevitably, the size of the full-time-equivalent faculty allocated to a department or program will fluctuate, expanding in periods of growth and contracting in periods of retrenchment. The Provost customarily has the responsibility of adjusting departmental faculty size appropriately during such routine periods of growth or decline, so that in the long run all departments are treated equitably and the educational goals of the institution are achieved.
Tenured faculty may not be arbitrarily dismissed as a result of these routine periodic adjustments to departmental full-time equivalent FTE faculty.

See Article History Literature, a body of written works. The name has traditionally been applied to those imaginative works of poetry and prose distinguished by the intentions of their authors and the perceived aesthetic excellence of their execution. Literature may be classified according to a variety of systems, including language, national origin, historical period, genre, and subject matter. For historical treatment of various literatures within geographical regions, see such articles as African literature ; African theatre ; Oceanic literature ; Western literature ; Central Asian arts ; South Asian arts ; and Southeast Asian arts.
Some literatures are treated separately by language, by nation, or by special subject e. Definitions of the word literature tend to be circular.

Polycarp was martyred c. But Polycarp also was not only instructed by apostles, and conversed with many who had seen Christ, but was also, by apostles in Asia, appointed bishop of the Church in Smyrna, whom I also saw in my early youth, for he tarried [on earth] a very long time, and, when a very old man, gloriously and most nobly suffering martyrdom, departed this life, having always taught the things which he had learned from the apostles, and which the Church has handed down, and which alone are true.
To these things all the Asiatic Churches testify, as do also those men who have succeeded Polycarp down to the present time, a man who was of much greater weight, and a more stedfast witness of truth, than Valentinus, and Marcion, and the rest of the heretics. He it was who, coming to Rome in the time of Anicetus caused many to turn away from the aforesaid heretics to the Church of God, proclaiming that he had received this one and sole truth from the apostles, that, namely, which is handed down by the Church.
There are also those who heard from him that John, the disciple of the Lord, going to bathe at Ephesus, and perceiving Cerinthus within, rushed out of the bath-house without bathing, exclaiming, “Let us fly, lest even the bath-house fall down, because Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within. Then, again, the Church in Ephesus, founded by Paul, and having John remaining among them permanently until the times of Trajan, is a true witness of the tradition of the apostles.
Irenaeus also mentions Polycarp in his letter to Florinus. These opinions, Florinus, that I may speak in mild terms, are not of sound doctrine; these opinions are not consonant to the Church, and involve their votaries in the utmost impiety; these opinions, even the heretics beyond the Church’s pale have never ventured to broach; these opinions, those presbyters who preceded us, and who were conversant with the apostles, did not hand down to thee.
For, while I was yet a boy, I saw thee in Lower Asia with Polycarp, distinguishing thyself in the royal court, and endeavouring to gain his approbation. Whatsoever things he had heard from them respecting the Lord, both with regard to His miracles and His teaching, Polycarp having thus received [information] from the eye-witnesses of the Word of life, would recount them all in harmony with the Scriptures. These things, through, God’s mercy which was upon me, I then listened to attentively, and treasured them up not on paper, but in my heart; and I am continually, by God’s grace, revolving these things accurately in my mind.
And I can bear witness before God, that if that blessed and apostolical presbyter had heard any such thing, he would have cried out, and stopped his ears, exclaiming as he was wont to do: This fact, too, can be made clear, from his Epistles which he despatched, whether to the neighbouring Churches to confirm them, or to certain of the brethren, admonishing and exhorting them.
Irenaeus also mentions Polycarp in his letter to Pope Victor.
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going. If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls.

The D to A fifth interval is now only cents wide, and that 22 cent difference to pure really makes it howl. No wonder it was known as the “Wolf” fifth.
Equal Temperament The Harmonic Series All tuning is ultimately based on the harmonic series, which arises from the physical behaviour of vibrating strings. A vibrating string produces a whole spectrum of related frequencies. The fundamental, or first harmonic, is the frequency at which the overall speaking length of a string vibrates.
The fourth harmonic two octaves above the fundamental is produced by four loops each one-quarter of the speaking length and the fifth harmonic two octaves and a major third by five loops each one-fifth of the spaeking length, and the sixth harmonic two octaves and a fifth by six loops Guitarists are familiar with these fractions of the string length as the locations of natural harmonics.
This concept is vital to the understanding of why we tune musical instruments the way we do. The harmonic series Pythagoras No other single figure in written history has had more influence on the tuning of musical instruments than Pythagoras, the ancient Greek mathematician, philosopher, and mystic, known to every schoolchild for his theorem – “in a right-angled triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides”. Images of childhood geometry lessons notwithstanding, Pythagoras was no dusty, boring academic – he was a flamboyant, charismatic sage, who dressed in white robes and wore a gold coronet.
Leaving Samos at age 18, he studied in Egypt for 22 years and in Babylon for a further 12 years, collecting the accumulated mathematical knowledge of these ancient lands, and becoming initiated into the mystery religions of their peoples. He visited many other countries along the way – some claim he even travelled as far as India. When he finally returned to Samos, burning with enthusiasm to found a centre of learning, he found that it had become a narrow-minded, intolerant society with no place for his new-fangled ideas.
