Dune Generation a lAutre (French Edition)
As I considered my students at that time in regards to this, I immediately thought of Jeremy. I talked to him one day after class and told him that I knew I wasn't going to be able to teach forever and that I would like him to pray about continuing his French studies so that he could replace me someday when I retire. He told me he had never thought about anything like that, but he would indeed pray about it.
Not long after that, he came to tell me that he was going to pursue the path I had suggested, as the Lord opened doors for him. But instead of his replacing me upon my retirement, I get to enjoy having this fine man as my colleague for a few years. How cool is that?! There's a poster I put up in my classroom each fall as a reminder about what teaching is all about — passing on what we know to the next generation.
Here's a picture of that poster. A couple of bits of humor come to mind in connection with that nice picture. One, for the older man, is the young man the apple of his eye? Another one is something my former German teacher Dr.
Salter once told me — "The apple doesn't fall far from the horse. Remembering my having told him that story, my son Mark snapped the picture below at the Children's Museum of the Upstate recently and sent it to me. He said there was no apparent reason for the apple to be there, but when he saw it, he knew I would get a laugh out of it.
Post-Impressionism in Holland
I must say that this summer I have seen or heard from more former students than I remember having done in the past. I guess I'm getting to enjoy some of the fruit of past labors, which encourages me to labor on. Speaking of from one generation to the next, we were able to have our whole family at our house a couple of weeks ago. Our neighbor kindly acted as our photographer, and here's our gang. I hope that each of you is investing in the next generation in some way. If not, consider how you could do that. There are so many ways that you can.
Maybe my commenters will tell how they are doing just that. BTW, some of you may be getting to an age where you need to start looking around for your eventual replacement. Just sayin' Doctor to patient: I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you are not a hypochondriac.

In some ways it is. However, we age and must move on. Hopefully the wisdom I try to impart will last and my students will talk about me the way that Christine and I talk about you and Madame Eaves and Dr.
Enjoy your last few years before retirement. Very good, Rob! A few comments: Your challenge to your students to consider teaching reminds me of Dr. Fremont who did the same thing. Who knows how many students considered and became teachers through challenges like this? I am very thankful that some of my former students are teaching and school administrators.

These Latin translations of a late medieval version of the Mo cheh Instructions relating to the pulse and other short texts were the work of the Polish Jesuit Michael Boym They were published, with no mention of Boym, by Andreas Cleyer , a physician with the Dutch East India Company who served in Java in the s and later in Japan. The only earlier printed Western work on Chinese medicine was a short unillustrated collection of Jesuit translations of similar Chinese works entitled Secrets de la medicine chinoise Grenoble The texts translated here, of which several are by Vam Xo Ho or Wang Shu-ho , deal primarily with theories relating to the pulse, and the closely related subject of acupuncture is discussed extensively.
One chapter gives remedies for various types of disorders of the pulse, while the chapter on materia medica lists and describes plants, with phonetic transcriptions of their Chinese names, and their Latin names where the plants have been identified. The final section contains 36 descriptions of various pathological symptoms as manifested in the appearance of the tongue, illustrated by woodcuts of the tongue with captions describing localized discoloration, etc. The curious engravings, copied from a Chinese source, probably Chang Chieh-Pin's Lei ching include several anatomical engravings of organs as well as the first acupuncture charts published in the West; unfortunately, these were dubbed 'anatomical' by Western writers, causing much confusion and misguided criticism.
A portion of Boym's translation of the section on the pulse was abridged and paraphrased in English in the second volume of John Floyer's Physician's pulse-watch Floyer, presumably influenced by Chinese theory, was the first European physician to advocate regular observations of the pulse. First French edition, translated from the original Italian , Venise , of the first biography of Christopher Columbus, by one of his contemporaries who knew him best, his portside son, Ferdinand.
Henry Vignaud, severe critic of the origins of the so-called Columbus Legend, judged it to be "the most important of our sources of information on the life of the discoverer of America," and Washington Irving honored it as "the corner-stone of the history of the American continent. Rutgers University Press , - calls it "a work of great authority," and continues: "Ferdinand's Historie is more than a rich and faithful source of information about Columbus.
It is also a moving personal document that vividly re-creates the moral and intellectual atmosphere of Columbus's world and the swirling passions of which he was the center.
It is in large part a straightforward narrative of action. He wrote, therefore, from participation, from verbal narrative from his father's lips concerning the other voyages, and from unique access to his father's papers. That the first edition of the Historie was not published till more than thirty years after its author's death, and in Italian rather than the Spanish in which it was written, is accounted for in this passage from Admiral Samuel Eliot Morison's life of Columbus The manuscript, which has since disappeared, was taken by D.
Luis Colon, the Admiral's grandson, to Italy in , before any Spanish edition had been printed; and the sole surviving text is an Italian translation by Alfonso Ulloa printed at Venice in He sold the manuscript of Ferdinand's Historie to a wealthy Genoese physician, Baliano de Formari, who underwrote the translation and publication, and to whom the work is dedicated. Parenthetically, in the past century doubt of Ferdinand's authorship was cast by the able Americanist, Henry Harrisse, on the basis of evidence which seemed impressive at the time.
Discovery of subsequent evidence strongly tends to refute Harrisse's conclusion and demonstrates the pitfalls of bibliographical conjecture, even when made by experts. When Ferdinand Columbus born in was a young boy he became a page to the Spanish heir apparent, Prince Juan, and later to the Prince's mother, Queen Isabella. At thirteen, in , he went to America with his father, and again, in , with his elder brother, Diego, who was Governor of Hispaniola Espafiola.
