Reading Novels Makes Us Better Thinkers

Started this discussion. Last reply by cresman Aug 13, 2013. 66 Replies

The novel has a hard time competing with the visual stimulation of cinema. The novel taxes our imaginations and our time because we must be actively involved with it and committed to it. But this…Continue

In a recent discussion group I was confronted with the idea of total, conventional, attrition-style warfare as a simplistic solution to the vagaries of counter-insurgency.And simultaneously I came…Continue

A Recent Instance in Which I Was Censored

Posted on April 3, 2012 at 2:00pm 2 Comments

It was but this morning when a fellow member's blog appeared on the front page. Its title, raising awareness about government regulation in a certain industry, intrigued me, so I clicked, and I read it thoroughly. The post amounted to a lot of slogans without much substance to the actual argument, and therefore I brought up some of these issues in the comment section.

 

The author and I ended up participating in an exchange, which was civil and on the whole rather bloodless,…

On Closing Blogs to Commentary

Posted on April 2, 2012 at 9:18am 5 Comments

When we create a blog post on this site, we are sharing with the community. We may be sharing our personal lives, reviewing the latest (albeit, 80+years old) shaving gear we bought, entertaining our fellow members with the history of facial hair, or arguing our political views in an essay.

 

When we, the members of this site, create a blog post, we are injecting our own ideas, however small, petty, or provincial, into the marketplace of…

Ah, A gyro!  I thought I'd never get good Greek food again after I moved out of Astoria.  But it turns out that there are some decent Greek restaurants and even one excellent one here on the West side of the Hudson...

Thanks for the welcome!  I can't contribute much on classical Greek, but am a real fan of Greek music and food - born and raised in "Little Athens" (Astoria, NY), and lived there until my mid-30s....

Are there any other Greek or Greek-inspired musicians out there?

Vytautas~

How are you. Sorry I did not introduce myself earlier, when I joined. AOM and on-line activities keep taking a back seat to work.

 

I am a "Hellene".The last name might put you off its literally Θωμάς

Im glad you put up this site. I took ancient an ancient Greek class many  many moons ago. Just want to read and brush up (or relearn really). Times the biggest factor. The church I attend is in 100% Koine/Byzantine greek, except the father will give the sermon in demotic and english.

Lately I've been preparing for professional practice examinations in engineering. Taking up most of my free study and reading time.

 How long have you been studying greek? Im glad you put the group on the site!

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
