Basic translation (just a quickie)

For a while i've been looking for a translation of the word 'Control' as in 'the control of oneself' or 'control of surrounding events'
I've found rough translations on a couple of online dictionaries but i thought i'd be better to get it from some people who'll know for sure.

Please accept my apologies if these posts are dime-a-dozen.
Thanks for your help

Prose Composition II.

Have a go, this will be interesting. I have this text as an official standard. Although I'm not telling you what. And I've replaced many words, and added vocabulary below. Translate as it is, no showboating, fancy doing etc. Notate bene: Les Supines sont interdites. Supines sitae non sunt(I'm guessing the word for Supines if you haven't already guessed).

Anyway, translate:

"Supines are forbidden.

Once Piglet, who had been a very famous Ostrich a many ...

What materials are the best?

I am new to Latin but I had some previous experience in foreign (romance) languages such as French and Spanish. So I am wondering if there are any great materials avaliable for my latin, preferably materials in which jargons are minimized. Looking forward to your reply.

Cicero

After the Christmas holidays we'll be translating Cicero - 'De re publica' (well, what's left of it), but I've sort of forgotten everything I knew about Cicero, which wasn't much in the first place :P .

quibuscum gerunt bellum = wage war with, or against?

I'm reading through Caesar and wasn't sure how to interpret this:

...

quibuscum gerunt bellum continenter.
(..with whom they wage war continuously.)

Should "wage war with" be taken to mean against, or does it mean "wage war in union with the Germans, (ie together against other tribes)? I presume the former, but the latter could be implied by the English translation.

Latin prose composition!

Yes, three very magic words formed my title!

Seeing as the "Latin prose composition" forum is controlled by a moderator and a moderator only, I imagine this is still the place to suggest little prose comp exercises.
What I thought I would do was choose, at random, an article from the greatest British paper (which, naturally, is The Independent, but please don't make a post saying how your hold The Times or The Guardian or ...

Ovid Latin reader

I just received in the mail today Allen and Greenough's Ovid reader.

What would forum members like to see first: Virgil or Ovid? Both readers are about the same size and each comes with the typical notes and specialized vocabulary.
