Reese Johnson is a senior at suwannee high school. He is an estimated 4’3” tall weighing 98 lbs. For the record reese is in no way connected to the Jewish religion, despite physical attributes and slurs from Mrs. Woodrum. Reese is a member of the Suwannee High Swim team and enjoys stroking with his fellow partners. Reese is currently involved with long time high school sweet heart Brooke Reed, they plan on getting married after graduation. Reese is an avid supporter of gay rights. He is constantly spotted at protests concerning gay marriage and the attempt to outlaw gay bashing in all 50 states. Reese’s hero since he was a small boy (as in smaller than he is now) has always been Barbara Streissand. There is not a time of the day when you won’t hear him singing her songs or quoting her movies. He has 6 posters in his room, 5 of them being Pictures of Babara. The 6th is a blown up duplicate of the N’SYNC ‘No Strings Attached,’ album cover. Reese dreams of one day being a fruit of the lume underwear model. He would like to join the ‘Apple,’ ‘Grapes,’ and ‘Pears,’ by becoming the ‘Giant Banana.’ Perhaps he wants to compensate for his short comings.

The ”’Lioré et Olivier LeO H-47”’ was a flying boat airliner built in France in 1936.<ref name=’Jane’s ‘>Taylor 1989, 580</ref> Designed in response to a French air ministry specification for passenger transports to service transatlantic routes to South America, it was a conventional, high-wing design with the cabin and flight deck fully enclosed within a streamlined hull. The four engines were mounted in two tractor-pusher pairs on the upper wing.

The prototype H-47 was destroyed in a crash in March 1937 that was attributed to a wingtip float breaking away whilst the aircraft was in flight.<ref name=’Flight 1937′>”Flight” 14 October 1937, 374</ref> Nevertheless, [[Air France]] went ahead with the purchase of five similar (though strengthened) machines, which were put into service as mailplanes.<ref name=’Jane’s’ /> These machines were impressed into the French Navy at the outbreak of the Second World War.<ref name=’Jane’s’ />

Syriac versions of the Bible

Syriac versions of the Bible: “

Leszek Jańczuk: m

[[Image:SyriacBibleParisFolio8rrMosesBeforePharaoh.jpg|thumb|right|220px|''The Syriac Bible of Paris'', Moses before pharao]]
Syria played an important or even predominate role in the beginning of christianity. Here was written [[Gospel of Matthew]], [[Gospel of Luke]], [[Didache]], Ignatiana, [[Gospel of Thomas]]. Syria was the country in which intersected Greek language with Syriac. Syriac was the language in close relationship to the [[Aramaic language|Aramaic]] dialect used by Jesus and Apostles. That is the reason for which Syriac Versions are high estimed by textual critics.
Scholars have distinguished five or six different Syriac versions of all or part of the New Testament. It is possible some translations were lost. Majority of the manuscripts are holded now in [[British Library]]), and other European libraries. The came from countries like [[Lebanon]], [[Egypt]], [[Sinai]], [[Mesopotamia]], [[Armenia]], [[India]], and even from [[China]]. It is good evidence of the great activity of Syriac church in his history.

== [[Diatessaron]] ==
The earliest translation of the Gospels into Syriac language which survived to the present day, it is [[Diatessaron]], a harmony of the four Gospels prepared about A.D. 170 by [[Tatian]] in Rome. After his return to Syria he translated it into Syriac. Probably it was the first translation of part of the New Testament from Greek into other language. Survived only fragments.

== The Old Syriac ==
The Old Syriac Version of the four Gospels is preserved today only in two manuscripts, both with a large number of gaps.
The [[Curetonian Gospels]] consists of fragments of the four Gospels. It was brought in 1842 from the [[Nitrian Desert]] in Egypt, and now holded in the [[British Library]]. The fragments were examined by [[William Cureton]] and edited by him in 1858. The manuscript is dated paleographically to the 5th century. It is called Curetonian Syriac, and designated by Syr<sup>c</sup>.
The second manuscript it is a [[palimpsest]] discovered by [[Agnes Smith Lewis]] in the [[Saint Catherine's Monastery, Mount Sinai|Monastery of St. Catherine]] in 1892 at Mount Sinai, called Sinaitic Syriac, and designated by Syr<sup>s</sup>.
This version was made at the end of the 2nd century. It was known for [[Ephrem the Syrian]], and it was cited by him. It is a representative of the [[Western text-type]].
These two manuscript represent only Gospels. The text of Acts and the Pauline Epistles has not survived to the our time. We know it only from citations made by Eastern fathers.

== [[Peshitta]] ==
[[Image:RabulaGospelsFolio04vCanonTable.jpg|thumb|right|220px|[[Rabbula Gospels]], [[Eusebian Canons]]]]
The term Peshitta was used by Moses bar Kepha in 903. and means ‘simple’ (analogy of Latin [[Vulgate]]). It is the oldest Syriac version survived to the present day in its entirety.
It contains 22 books of New Testament, lacking the shorter [[General epistles]] (2-3 John, 2 Peter, Jude, as well as John 7:53-8:11).
It was made in the beginning of the 5th century. Authorship ascribed bp [[Rabbulas|Rabbuli z Edessy]] (zm. 436). It is a representative of the [[Byzantine text-type]]. The Syriac church still uses it in the present day.

== Later Syriac versions ==
Philoxenian, probably was produced in 508 for Philoxenus, Bishop of Mabbug in eastern Syria.
This translaton contains the five books not found in the Peshitta: 2 Peter, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, and the Apocalypse.
This translation survived only in short fragments.
It is designated by syr<sup>ph</sup>.
Harclensis is designated by syr<sup>h</sup>.

According to some scholars the Philoxenian and Harclensis are only recentions of Peshitta, according the other they are independent new translations.

About A.D. 500 was made Palestinian Syriac version in Palestinian dialect. It contains 2 Peter, 2-3 John, Jude, and Apocalypse. It is a representative of the [[Caesarean text-type]] and it is absolutely new translation different from any other which was made into Syriac.
In 1892 [[Agnes Smith Lewis]] discovered manuscript of the Palestinian Syriac lectionary in the library of the Monastery of St. Catherine on Mount Sinai.

== Limitations of Syriac ==

Syriac language belongs to a completely different group of languages than Greek language. Translation into it from Greek impose some problems.
Syriac, having no case endings, and was unable to use every order of words which was possible in Greek.
The Syriac and Greek tense systems are different conciderably.

In transcription of proper names Greek letter ξ was translitered by using two Syriac letters ܭܣ. Letter τ was translittered by ܜ, and θ by ܬ (f.e. in name Τιμοθεε, Timothy, ܛܡܬܐܘܣ). In the case of Semitic names translatiors always tried to restore original semitic pattern, but not always translators recognized semitic names (f.e. Arethas in 2 Cor 11:32). The Greek New Testament in two ways translitered saint city Jerusalem, hebr. ‘j<sup>e</sup>rušalajim’: Ιερουσαλημ i Ιεροσολυμα. Syriac versions always used Urišlem. Διαβολος into – ”satana”. Σιμων Πετρος almost in every case – šem‛un kepa, but in some cases Πετρος was translitered into Ptrws.

Science dictionary

Science dictionary: “

JohnDans: Made a page ‘science dictionary’

== Science Dictionary ==

A science dictionary or science ‘e-textbook’ is a database of archived or live scientific papers.
Most services that offer a science dictionary combine its databases with other encyclopedia sources,
and thus form a large database with hundreds of thousands of entry’s.

== Appearance ==

A science dictionary is a book of alphabetically listed entry’s on a specific or multiple topics, with definitions, images, articles, and other information. Sometimes confused with an encyclopedia which is a comprehensive written compendium that contains information on either all branches of knowledge or a particular branch of knowledge. Encyclopedias are divided into articles with one article on each subject covered. The articles on subjects in an encyclopedia are usually accessed alphabetically by article name and can be contained in one volume or many volumes, depending on the amount of material included.


== History ==

Science Dictionaries have existed from the 500 B.C.’s when the Chinese started organizing all of their scientifically
important knowledge, and combining them into scrolls. The amount and type of information ranged from theories, species,
experiments, essays, research, and various other forms of knowledge. However it wasn’t until the 100 B.C.’s when they
started organizing each and every scroll to form a dictionary of scientific knowledge. The dictionaries were ordered from most ‘important’ to least ‘important’ by Chinese standards, and reached up to 8,000 entries long. Some versions have been found where the dragon (one of the most ancient and powerful creatures of Chinese legend) was the first entry in the science dictionary. However, that since the notion of searching up entries one by one based on importance, was too much of a confusion (also because, the Chinese scientists couldn’t agree upon a good definition for each article) they abandoned the task, and it had never gained momentum to be a worldwide success.

Carousel Gardens is a seasonally operated amusement park located in New Orleans, Louisiana at [[New Orleans City Park]]. It features many rides including an antique carousel, the Live Oak Ladybug Rollercoaster, and a minature train that tours the park. Since the amusement park is for younger children, there are no thrill rides. Sometime during 2008, a larger ferris wheel is set to open.
