    You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar. (An old adage)

    Mr. Putin, I usually try to ignore what the leaders of other countries do; it usually is none of my business, but the recent activities that Russia has engaged in with respect to Ukraine are the business of everyone in the world. We know the history, and we understand why Russia might want to regain some of its past glory, but taking pieces of neighboring countries in an attempt to do that is counterproductive; ...

    Horology (via Latin horologium from Greek ὡρολόγιον, from ὥρα hṓra "hour; time" + -o- interfix + suffix -logy; lit. the study of time
    I have written about horological reform before, and I thought it was time to do so again, but this dictionary in Microsoft doesn’t seem to realize that “horological” is a perfectly good and correctly spelled word. Perhaps other s agree.

  5. Human Spare Parts

    It isn’t as much of an issue now as it was at some other times, but there are still people who are concerned about stem cell research. I can understand people disapproving of the use of cells of living people in the research, but after the death of a person it should be a non-issue. I suppose that using cells from aborted fetuses would bother people who oppose abortion, but the good that may come from the research should come close to outweighing the origin, but fetal stem cells are no longer required ...
