By Mark Palmer for the Daily Mail. Dictionaries tend not to have much of a sense of humour. Perhaps that's why you never see them in the downstairs lavatories of a certain kind of house, alongside a stack of out-of-date Giles cartoon books and bluffers' guides to buying wine. But that's not the case with The Chin Dictionary, a compendium of current words and phrases deployed by the upper classes in modern Britain, plus a whole collection of new words and phrases that the upper classes would be proud to have invented if they had the wit and chutzpah of the anonymous creator of this page tome. A Chin — if you didn't know and, frankly, it was new to me — is a privileged young, or not so young, toff who wears self-deprecation like a badge of honour, knows that 'Al Pachinos' means 'The Godfather.

Review of Doc Love’s THE SYSTEM – THE DATING DICTIONARY | The Mike Kaas Corner
He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace , with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. The Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists. Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error , "a poem and a mistake", but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars. The first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus,  Ovid is today best known for the Metamorphoses , a book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic , and for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria "The Art of Love" and Fasti. His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages , and greatly influenced Western art and literature.

We need to build the public trust, and to do that you have to do things consistently, carefully follow simple guideline s.

Opposition to miscegenation, framed as preserving so-called racial purity , is a typical theme of racial supremacist movements. Although the term "miscegenation" was formed from the Latin miscere "to mix" plus genus "race" or "kind", and it could therefore be perceived as value-neutral, it is almost always a pejorative term used by people who believe in  racial superiority and purity. In Spanish America, the term mestizaje , which is derived from mestizo —the blending of European whites and Indigenous peoples of the Americas , is used to refer to production of offspring by people considered to be of different racial types. In the present day, the word miscegenation is avoided by many scholars, because the term suggests that race is a concrete biological phenomenon, rather than a categorization imposed on certain relationships. The term's historical use in contexts that typically implied disapproval is also a reason why more unambiguously neutral terms such as interracial , interethnic or cross-cultural are more common in contemporary usage.
