 Article Title :: Women in Colonial Latin America
The role of women in colonial Latin America was very much determined by what racial group and social class they were born into. In her book, The Women of Colonial Latin America, Susan Migden Socolow identifies additional factors that caused differences in women's lives. These other factors include "demography, life cause, spatial variations, local economy, norm and reality, and change over time" (Socolow 1).Socolow contends that among these additional variables, demography was the most important. This is due to the fact that the "ratio of men to women could enhance or limit women's choices" (Socolow 2). The experiences of women also changed as they grew older and moved into   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Squibs of the Scandalous Columnist Benjamin Franklin
The Ben Franklin fan club will come to order, with apologies for having delayed the 293rd anniversary celebration of his birth January 17.We gather not to honor his achievements as patriot, statesman, philosopher and scientist -- but to relish his irreverent contributions as a columnist. His approach to life was often unconventional, some times scandalous, but always provocative.Ben’s distinguished career began as a 14-year-old printer’s apprentice to his brother James, indentured by their father until the younger brother would be 21. He likely would have continued all his life as a poor, hard-working printer if it had not been for the first newspaper war in America.  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Ben's Prayer Plan
The controversy of prayer in governmentally supported institutions grow ever more heated. How did we arrive at this contretemps?Blame it on Benjamin Franklin – that great printer, politician, diplomat, inventor and patriot.The Constitutional Convention of 1787 had been in session for a month working out details for a new form of government the delegates described as “republican.”By that term, the “Founding Fathers” meant a nation whose citizens had equal political power, which they delegated to a few government functions supervised by representatives elected by democratic election.This was a unique invention that has served well the United States of A  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Templars and the Tau Cross
The Tau is a figure constructed of five lines and is considered an important emblem or badge in Royal Arch Masonry and was the symbol of the Knight Templars of St Anthony of Leith. Find out why....Among my Masonic illustrations I have many definitions of the Tau. Some being that it means T.H. or Templum Hierosolyma, Temple of Jerusalem; or that it means a treasure, or a place were treasure is buried. The Tau is a figure constructed of five lines and is considered an important emblem or badge in Royal arch Masonry. There is also a triple cross like a T of the Egyptian, Roman, or English Alphabet.What is the connection to Leith? This symbol was the symbol of the Knight Templar  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Florentine Legends: The Reversed Balcony
Florence is a city full of history, where it’s easy to be charmed by what surrounds you and do not notice some little corners, minor ones, that make you rediscover the city and the character of Florentine people.One of these is in Borgo Ognissanti at number 12, where is located the reversed balcony. Admiring it is a pleasure especially if you think about the legend that surrounds it, not because it was object of peculiar tales but because it reflects very well the city and its inhabitants, reflection where I see myself too.The reversed balcony that is located on the first floor, was built by assembling counter wise the classical elements of a regular balcony: the supportin  (read full article)

 Article Title :: "PRIDE & PREJUDICE" A Novel, Wearing Fetters of Limitations
Jane Austen occupies an ambivalent position in literary history. She is too little a writer of the nineteenth century to be called ‘ Romantic’, too much a person of her time to be called classical. Her contemporaries like Wordsworth and Charlotte Bronte found in her works a want of feeling, passion and imagination. Edward Fitzgerald complains that:“She never goes out of the Parlour”The twentieth century however, has seen Jane Austen elevated by critics of diverse hues, to being one of the best female novelists and of the six novels she wrote, all are deemed classics, with at least three of them being counted among the best in English fiction. Among all the novels of  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Empathy: The Key to Positive Human Interaction
Yesterday, I had a discussion over empathy with somebody close to me who said, “Empathy is most needed in human communication, but empathy without sympathy has no humanistic value. A con man may feel empathy for you, but if he has no morals or feelings of sympathy, he can use that empathy against you.”This made me reflect on empathy. To me, empathy is a process of understanding and feeling into another person, as well as it is an internal reaction activated by a cue from the other person.On Empathy, Encyclopedia Britannica says: “"The ability to imagine oneself in another's place and understand the other's feelings, desires, ideas, and actions. It is a term coined in   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Edgar Degas - Biography Of The French Artist Renowned For His Figure Painting
The career of Edgar Degas was a long one - about 60 years out of his total 83. And his style, unlike that of most famous artists who worked into their old age, never ceased developing, always seeking out new means of expression and technique.The art dealer Ambroise Vollard one day asked him why he had never married, to which he replied that he would live in constant fear that, whenever he completed a new painting, he would hear my wife say 'That's so pretty what you've done there!'. In fact, despite today's almost universal appreciation and popularity of his images, it was never a conventional sense of beauty that attracted his talents.Hilaire Germain Edgar de Gas (it was only late  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Lawrence Alma-Tadema - Biography Of An Artist In The Antique Style
Born Lourens Tadema (Alma being his middle name) in Dronryp, Friesland, to Pieter Tadema, a notary, and his second wife Hinke Brouwer - from an early age Alma-Tadema showed artistic ability and the beginnings of his highly methodical and exacting nature as demonstrated in his subsequent paintings. He only adopted the now familiar form of his name after moving to London in 1870.At the age of 16 Alma-Tadema enrolled at the Antwerp Academy where he studied under Gustav Wappers and Nicaise de Keyser, both exponents of the Romantic movement in art.

 Article Title :: Winning Hearts and Minds or Feared and Respected?
Many scholars have told the United States that we must win the hearts and the minds of the Muslim People and well in hindsight that was not such good advice now was it? Indeed when someone else is using fear tactics on their own people against you and similar fear tactics against you to protect themselves from their perceived view of your intentions, well obviously that cannot workMost people fail to understand that unfortunately when cultures are so far apart they do not respect each other in human civilizations; therefore I am not interested in attempting to win the hearts and minds of the people. Because it is impossible when there is a culture clash, instead the next best thing  (read full article)
