Sorry. Math is not my forte (though it's better than geography, as known to those who have found the most recent secret). Continue to learn more with: Sam Less UPenn. PS What is it in brackets – do not know. 15) Informative If a teacher is headed by college, can we assume that he studied at the college when he was a student Hogvatsa? If so, is this true and about the ghosts? Was Snape a Slytherin? It issue of the open letter 'A Mugglenet / Harry Potter Lexicon Open Letter Question' (I can not promise that I will answer all these questions, but I'll try and work on it). Yes, if the teacher is headed by college, then you can assume that he was a student of this college. So Snape was a Slytherin and of course, yes, the same is true about the characters.

16) Do you like Sirius Black I received several letters on this matter that I was somewhat surprised. The answer is yes, I like it, although I do not think he's absolutely wonderful (Ooo, I can hear as they sharpen knives on Immertus this site so see fansite). Sirius is very good to rant on a remarkable personal philosophy, but he does not always follow it. For example, he says in 'Ogennoy bowl' that if you want to know how to actually look like people: 'Look how man relates to his subordinates, not equals. " But Sirius does not make Kreacher, inherited his house-elf, and refers to him only with contempt. Also, Sirius argues that no one is completely good or evil, but at the same time his actions against Snape's show that he Snyep can not be hidden good qualities.

Old Bazaar

I know people who have many years on the weekend walk to the Old Bazaar. It does not matter whether the meat, for “green”, or just for potatoes, as they say, to walk through the bazaar, talk to your friends. No wonder in Rostov-on-Don was previously run a saying: “You want to know how and with whom your husband spends his free time – go down to the Old Bazaar.” I myself loved as a child with his father to “go to market” necessarily walk past shops tinsmiths, look like an ordinary sheet of “galvanizing” in a few minutes into a water pipe with a bell on the end, fascinated to look at the sparks flying from the grinding stones and hear the usual call-cry: “Scissors, knives, meat grinders to grind! Come-and-and! .. “Or” sharpen knives – will not return a blunt-at !… And my uncle, often coming to visit us from Tbilisi, the morning after the arrival of a mandatory set off at Central Market.

I once asked him: “Uncle Gene, and why you each time you come to us on the first day with a morning walk to the market?” And he answered me with a truly Caucasian pathos: “Remember, son. When I arrived in Rostov, but not went to the Old Bazaar and you do not eat cake with a “meat-rice” for 4 cents, then I’m in Chicago WAS NOT! “And then I realized that our old market – this is the feeling of the city, not only for Rostovites, but for those who come here. It pulse of the city, the mood of the city, the mood of people living in our city. When Rostovites well, and then market “boils”. And when not, and the market is said to be “weakly”. During the Great Patriotic War is Old Bazaar has become a kind sredotocheniem city life. Vadim Wolfson, New York City may not feel the same. Here is the famous Rostov “Menka”, where citizens have changed things and the Don fish oil, lard, bread, imported from the surrounding villages and hamlets. It is here, as said the elderly, many have learned about the liberation of Stalingrad, that our troops crossed the Soviet-Polish border …

According to one version, Rostov was the “Pope” also, so to speak, with the help of the Old Market. So imagine. Prewar Rostov-on-Don. Old Bazaar. Weather that is, nasty. The strongest wind is driving the black clouds hanging low so quickly that it seems a little bit more, and one of the clouds will hook its edge dome bell tower, by which settled traders. And then there were cries: “Tick! The bell tower falls! “Hundreds of eyes in horror instantly rushed into the sky, and no one would even think that moves, and what goes on – whether the clouds are going fast, or bell tower, however, falls … Relying on visual deception was absolutely accurate. Panic. Sellers dropped their goods and quickly retreated from a dangerous place … Sly Rostov rogues, as they say in this day of “frustrated” with such a large “jackpot” that even their colleagues, Odessa, who shortly before that, “grabanuli” the bank could not boast of such a large sum.

Folk Calendar And Signs

Life and the life of Russian people have always been closely connected with all sorts of superstitions, and with the world around them. This is not surprising, as almost the only source of food for the farmer is the forest, garden, river. Last but not least role in relation to the world population of ancient Russia was playing church. Different days were confined to the name of a saint. Based on all this and created the popular signs and tips on any given day. And all of them, as well as folklore included in the Russian agricultural calendar and the Russian Orthodox calendar. A simple example appears to take is that until now people say that mushrooms grow after a rain. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr. takes a slightly different approach.

So, we can share a few factors that influenced the creation of signs. The first is nature. From it depended on whether the harvest large or small, and directly dependent on this wealth of the peasants. By the same factor depended planting dates and harvesting various agricultural plantations, while fishing and hunting. Therefore, at any time of year, and in any corresponding month there were signs. Thus was the agricultural calendar.

Second – it is a religion. People in those days were very devout and believed that their fate and health are directly dependent on the will of God and celestial beings. So there was a lot of rituals aimed at to get the help of heavenly patrons, not to offend them. So there was a Russian Orthodox Calendar. The third factor can be regarded as superstition, remaining from ancient times, when peasants believed in the mystical creatures like Goblin and dummy. Well, another thesis are the events taking place directly in the lives of everyone – death, birth of children, marriage, illness. All these points are fundamental to explain the appearance of ancient fairy tales, signs, jokes and other folklore. You can find lots of information, dedicated this.
