learning Italian

Hi! Anyone know any good websites or books for learning Italian? We have one 'teach yourself Italian' book at home, but it's not really that much help and a bit confusing.
Some thing like: 'learn Italian for people who already know Latin' would be good :wink: , but we're also looking for a book with phrases in Italian. So that you can learn the grammar by memorising ...

Villa of the Papyri

Wikipedia wrote:The "Villa of the Papyri" is an enormous private house of ancient Herculaneum owned by Julius Caesar's father-in-law, Lucius Calpurnius Piso Caesoninus, and first excavated in 1785 by Karl Weber. Its name derives from the discovery of a library in the house containing 1,800 carbonized papyrus scrolls.

The 800 feet (245 m) long sea side villa had four levels and was the most luxurious house in all of Herculaneum and Pompeii. It was complete with ...

I've been reading about 38 Latin Stories and I'm interested in buying it but I am only at chapter 2 of Wheelock's Latin. What chapter should I be at in Wheelock's before I can start the readings in 38 Latin Stories?

I'm lookin forward to the day when I can read something of substance and even write a little in the Agora. :)

What is self and how does it relate to reality?

some random thoughts
What is SELF?
Dose SELF defines reality or our view of reality? If so, is there one and only one SELF and dose this implies there is one reality?
What about SELF as a construct and not as ONE entity, does a construct SELF implies multiple realities?

Who is the most hard headed member?

Here is another attempt to lighted the mood.

Since PeterD and I seem to be two of the more outspoken/controversial people here I have decided to post a new poll question (with PeterD's prior approval). Who do you think is the most hard-headed and why?

Should be very fine to read your responses.

Butterflies or something......

Thought I'd start a new post on something that isn't loaded with political/partisan/moral/theological strife.......

I like butterflies......
I have a garden in the summer (although this year I was a bit too lazy) and I love watching the butterflies flutter through it. My dog likes butterflies too....she always tries to "catch" them....snap!! So far she hasn't been lucky.....she also tries to catch flies around the house, and hornets (ouch!)....it's pretty hilarious....she runs around jumping up ...

Lucky Break

I have gone to a few used-book stores that claim to have a good classics section.
I was disappointed by the selection and the price.
Yesterday I was at a discount store browsing through the books, not looking for any book in particular and I found a good copy of First Greek Book by JWW. $0.31.
This little blurp may be meaningless to you, but I wanted to tell someone.

Stem-cell research?

Now I know this is a very difficult subject to discuss as I imagine some people's emotions might be very strong on this subject, but it's also very interesting and relevant for the world we live in today. Many countries have approved stem-cell research and are already looking to cure many diseases.
This raises many questions I think. No only if it is morally correct, although that is of fundamental importance too, but also if ...
