“An der Geschichte des Bildungsbegriffs lässt sich verfolgen, dass dieser im Laufe der Zeit nicht eine, sondern mehrere Konnotationen erhalten hat, angefangen bei der religiösen Bedeutung über die Persönlichkeitsentwicklung bis hin zur Ware Bildung. Im Deutschen Kaiserreich (1871–1918) findet die entscheidende Wende von humboldtschen Bildungsinhalten hin zu moderneren Lehrinhalten statt. In heutigen gesellschaftlichen Debatten wird der Bildungsbegriff mit allen diesen Konnotationen zugleich oder in Teilen verwendet, je nachdem, in welchem Kontext die Äußerung steht. Mögliche Kontexte sind zum Beispiel: soziale Abgrenzung, wirtschaftliche Interessen oder politische Ziele. Verallgemeinernd kann eigentlich nur gesagt werden, dass die meisten Definitionen auf den Mündigkeitsaspekt des Begriffs „Bildung“ hinweisen. Zu den Begriffen und Begriffsschöpfungen, die im gemeinten Kontext zur Sprache kommen, gehören Bildungssystem, Bildungsmisere, Allgemeinbildung, Bildungspolitik, bildungsferne Schichten u. a. m. Wie nicht zuletzt die Diskussion um die Pisa-Studie zeigt, werden heute auch die allgemeinbildenden Schulen mit immer größerer Selbstverständlichkeit unter dem Gesichtspunkt der „Optimierung von Lernprozessen im Hinblick auf deren Relevanz für ökonomisch verwertbare Arbeit“ (Ribolits, 13) bewertet.“

“Die größten Plexus des vegetativen Nervensystems sind:
Plexus coeliacus im Oberbauch
Plexus mesentericus superior (bei Tieren heißt es statt „superior“ cranialis) im Mittelbauch
Plexus mesentericus inferior/caudalis im Unterbauch
Die beiden ersten werden zusammen auch Solarplexus oder Plexus solaris genannt. Sie enthalten sympathische Fasern für die Eingeweide im Bauchraum: Magen, Leber, Milz, Bauchspeicheldrüse, Nieren, Nebennieren, Dünndarm, Anfangsteil des Dickdarms
Sie liegen an den Abgängen der drei großen Arterien Truncus coeliacus, Arteria mesenterica superior/cranialis und Arteria mesenterica inferior/caudalis von der Bauchaorta. Von ihnen gehen kleinere Plexus zu den einzelnen Organen ab. Die sympathischen Fasern stammen aus dem Rückenmark im Brust- und Lendenbereich, die parasympathischen Fasern vom Nervus vagus und aus dem Kreuzteil des Rückenmarks.“

“The earliest organization of the Christian churches in Palestine was similar to that of Jewish synagogues, who were governed by a council of elders (presbyteroi). In Acts 11:30 and 15:22, we see this collegiate system of government in Jerusalem, and in Acts 14:23, the Apostle Paul ordains elders in the churches he founded. Initially, these presbyters were apparently identical with the overseers (episkopoi, i.e., bishops), as such passages as Acts 20:17 and Titus 1:5,7 indicate, and the terms were interchangeable.
Shortly after the New Testament period, with the death of the Apostles, there was a differentiation in the usage of the synonymous terms, giving rise to the appearance of two distinct offices, bishop and presbyter. The bishop was understood mainly as the president of the council of presbyters, and so the bishop came to be distinguished both in honor and in prerogative from the presbyters, who were seen as deriving their authority by means of delegation from the bishop. The distinction between presbyter and bishop is made fairly soon after the Apostolic period, as is seen in the 2nd century writings of St. Ignatius of Antioch, who uses the terms consistently and clearly to refer to two different offices (along with deacon).“

“In software development (and by extension in content editing environments, especially wikis, that make use of the software development process of revision control), reversion or reverting is the abandonment of one or more recent changes in favor of a return to a previous version of the material at hand (typically software source code in the context of application development; HTML, CSS or script code in the context of web development; or content and formatting thereof in the context of wikis).
A revert may be done for a wide variety of reasons, including but not limited to: fixing errors introduced by previous edits; restoring the material to a state that was not contentious until new disputes can be resolved; undoing scope creep; regression testing; and even petty malice, vandalistic intent or personal unhappiness with the author of a previous change. While the process is generally agreed to be a sound and necessary one, particular instantiations of its use may be at least as controversial as the edits being reverted.“

“As Latin is an Italic language, most of its vocabulary is likewise Italic, deriving ultimately from PIE. However, because of close cultural interaction, the Romans not only adapted the Etruscan alphabet to form the Latin alphabet, but also borrowed some Etruscan words into their language, including persona (mask) and histrio (actor). Latin also included vocabulary borrowed from Oscan, another Italic language.
After the Fall of Tarentum (272 BC), the Romans began hellenizing, or adopting features of Greek culture, including the borrowing of Greek words, such as camera (vaulted roof), sumbolum (symbol), and balineum (bath). This hellenization led to the addition of "Y" and "Z" to the alphabet to represent Greek sounds. Subsequently the Romans transplanted Greek art, medicine, science and philosophy to Italy, paying almost any price to entice Greek skilled and educated persons to Rome, and sending their youth to be educated in Greece. Thus, many Latin scientific and philosophical words were Greek loanwords or had their meanings expanded by association with Greek words, as ars (craft) and τέχνη.
Because of the Roman Empire’s expansion and subsequent trade with outlying European tribes, the Romans borrowed some northern and central European words, such as beber (beaver), of Germanic origin, and bracae (breeches), of Celtic origin. The specific dialects of Latin across Latin-speaking regions of the former Roman Empire after its fall were influenced by languages specific to the regions. These spoken Latins evolved into particular Romance languages.“

“Die diplomatische Note oder Verbalnote ist eine Form des Briefwechsels zwischen den diplomatischen Vertretungen im Empfangsstaat und dem Außenministerium des Empfangsstaates. Da üblicherweise eine diplomatische Note von der Gegenseite erwidert wird, wird auch von einem Notenwechsel gesprochen. Durch die Form eines Notenwechsels können auch völkerrechtlich bindende Verträge abgeschlossen werden.
Eine solche Note wird teilweise in der dritten Person verfasst und beginnt üblicherweise mit der Höflichkeitsformel: „Die … Botschaft beehrt sich, dem Außenministerium …“
Am Schluss wird die Note wiederum mit einer Ehrerbietungsformel abgeschlossen., z. B.: „Die Botschaft benutzt diesen Anlass, das Außenministerium erneut ihrer ausgezeichneten Hochachtung zu versichern.““

“In the C++ programming language, as well as in many C++-based languages, new is a language construct that dynamically allocates memory from free store and initialises the memory using the constructor. Except for a form called the "placement new", new attempts to allocate enough memory in free store for the new data. If successful, it initialises the memory and returns the address to the newly allocated and initialised memory.However if new cannot allocate memory in free store it will throw an exception of type std::bad_alloc. This removes the need to explicitly check the result of an allocation. A call to delete, which calls the destructor and returns the memory allocated by new back to free store, must be made for every call to new to avoid a memory leak.“
