An ancient Roman bust from around the first century that had been missing for decades has finally made its way into the San Antonio Museum of Art, and all it took was for one artist to buy it from a Texas Goodwill for under $40.

In 2018, art collector Laura Young was shopping at a Goodwill store in Austin, Texas when she stumbled upon a sculpture on the floor beneath a table, according to the San Antonio Museum of Art. Someone that looks for undervalued or rare art pieces, Young told The Art Newspaper she bought the piece for $34.99, and a picture of it after she bought it shows it buckled up in her car with a price tag on its cheek.

The Sexual Politics of Women Competing Over Men

Women’s dependence on men motivates them to please men. Women boast about orgasm rather than discuss erotic turn-ons. Men are not interested in female orgasm but simply amenability.

What’s So Peasy About Easy?

I am nowhere to be found when it comes to crafts, remodeling, and just plain fixer-uppers. My carpentry skills are nowhere to be found even though I’ve looked for a long time. If I try to fix something, I make it worse than it was. Fixing is not my strong suit. On the other side of the parsonage, we have a different scenario. If the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage cannot fix something, it cannot be broken. No matter what it is, it doesn’t take her long to figure out how to fix it. Often she will spend time on the computer searching out a particular project and getting to know what needs to be done to fix it and get it up and running. I must say, and this is just between you and me, she has saved me quite a bit of money by fixing things up that would cost a lot to have them fixed at a professional place. If there is something wrong with my vehicle, I first present it to my wife. I have yet to find something broken in my vehicle that she cannot fix.

Shelley by John Addington Symonds

John Addington Symonds wrote his biography of the Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. he was describing events of about fifty years earlier from a period where it would have been easy and acceptable to judge. His book, however, is neither adulatory nor condemnatory. In fact, it offers a quite balanced appreciation of a life that was at least eventful and is still remembered. Exactly how great a poet Shelley might have been has differed according to the assumptions of the age. The fact that his work endures is recognition of its durability and quality. The fact that this biography remains insightful is testament to the skills of its author.

One-On-One Meeting With Staff – Advice for a New Head of Curriculum

In my first year as a head of department, 26 teachers taught Mathematics in my school. The teachers were spread in every staffroom in a school of 1200 students. It took me more than a semester to get to know the teachers and the school before I could become effective in my new role. With Mathematics being just a tack on subject for non-maths teachers, it was difficult to find time to meet with teachers residing outside the Maths staffroom. The only time I saw them was at organised department meetings at the beginning of each term. So I resolved in the future to attempt to have one on one meeting with my staff early in the year. This article discusses how and what I did it.
