nukta poneontos

Today I was too sleepy(due to a series of late night works) but too busy to take a nap and my head was about to blow up. So I took three cups of coffee from the vending machine and put them in my mug. I got two such shots of coffee today, and frequent dose of caffeine. Now the effect of the coffee's going out. And it's two in the morning. I'm going home. Just ...

Ch. 32

In the back of the book exercises, Ch.32, #19:

1. Tyrannus cives suos ita male opprimebat ut semper liberi esse vellent.

The tyrant was oppressing his own citizens so badly that they wished to be free.

My question is, why does it use ita and not tam?

2. Ch. 32 Practice & Review #2

order of wording & translation of a phrase into english

I've done some research on my own trying to come up with a latin version of a phrase, and knowing the word structure of latin I think I came up with the proper words and word ordering, but am not 100% sure.

1000th Open Board topic: KHLOROS

http://www.chlorine.org.uk/moreabout.htm

Without Chlorine we would not be able to live. Indeed I find it very difficult without it. Not enough for poison since anything in excess can be negative but I mean 'naturally occurring' in some substances from certain places I need. :(

Cl2 is used also of course to kill germs in drinking water. Without it I don't know what we would do. Also in various ...
