Son Yeh Jin 손예진 has gotten older, but she is still quite attractive. Someone I know didn't like her because she thought Son Yeh Jin was a bit self-absorbed, but aren't most celebrities like that? (Even Kim Ha Neul, no doubt.) I enjoy listening to her speak... which isn't true probably of most female Kpop idols, on the other hand.
Former Miss Korea Honey Lee also stars in the drama.
Edit. The drama is available on hulu. It's just not listed on the Google search results yet.
If I had a Sirius XM subscription I would listen to Sur La Route, if available. (I first heard it in a rental car several Christmases ago.) Are there any internet radio sites for [traditional] Quebecois music?
Who of the founding fathers understood happiness as an activity in accordance with virtue? And regarding the social nature of man, did they accept what this entailed with regards to natural relations and the importance of communal life?
Extraenvironmentalist Episode #63: Next US Revolution (hi/low) With a media ecosystem focused almost entirely the corporate system, burgeoning elements of a new economy revolution escape the mainstream eye. As our political systems stagnate in the face of ecological, energy and social crises, can an alternative to capitalism develop over the next few decades? Do ongoing experiments in money, society and energy have the ability to coalesce into a broader cultural shift? In Extraenvironmentalist #63 we talk about the growing network of institutions and businesses that are forming the new economic revolution in the United States with historian and political economist Gar Alperovitz. Gar describes the ideas in his new book, What Then Must We Do: Straight Talk About the Next American Revolution. Then we hear from two of Italy’s leading economists Stefano and Vera Zamagni about the civil society model of a market economy.
The Oil Drum is shutting down. But older posts will still be available as an archive. What more can be said at this point, other than refutations of those who continue to attempt to debunk peak oil? What we should be doing, and should have started doing, is transition away from a fossil fuel-dependent economy. But we love our luxuries.
From the second:
'Put differently, it is not equivalent to do the readings in Latin and in the vernacular, because the former, as perfected and fixed over time, is for us the very language of formal liturgy, while the latter is a diverseand ever-changing medium of ordinary communication.'
But is it a language (as opposed to sounds) if the hearer does not understand it? "Objectively" it may be a language but subjectively, no. If lay people in general understood Latin, such an argument would be applicable.
Both papers deserve a longer response.
Maybe I would have held to this position initially; the compromise of having the readings in both languages (with the vernacular being read before the homily) seemed to be redundant and perhaps dumb. Such a compromise seems also to be concession that the proponents for the readings being in the vernacular may be right. Is Latin necessary for the integrity of the liturgy, to its character as worship? I don't think so. Repeating the readings also seems to break up the 'rhythm' of the liturgy, even more so than the homily itself.
If the sentiment that the readings should be in Latin only is strong in certain communities, then it seems unlikely that they would be willing to compromise or admit of legitimate liturgical changes. How widespread is this opinion in the world of the EF?
What is the relationship of the parish to the political community (assuming that there is one)? Is the parish a part of, or manifestation of the latter? Or is it separate from it? (Or above it?) How does the order of charity play out, especially during a long emergency? Is the parish just a service/charity organization to be used by the state or its "neighbors"?
Fr. V told us while we were visiting Pompey (a decade ago?) that we had not yet learned the Roman recipe to concrete. I think it was also claimed that their mortar was superior, too, as they needed less of it to hold their bricks together.
