Death be not proud: an acknowledgment

I would just like to acknowledge all those out there who found this blog through googling Lana Schwebel. My reader count jumped from about twelve a day to something like forty-five. I can't believe how many people are googling my Latin and English professor. To know that there are so many out there touched and effected by what happened makes me feel like I'm not alone in this. I know there are so many people who are mourning. So I would just like to acknowledge all of you right now and say hello, and I hope you are all doing alright.

I would also like to draw your attention to a link on the side of this page, if you scroll down a bit. It is entitled "Dr. Lana Schwebel's Blue Blog." This is a blog created by a good friend of mine and another student of Dr. Schwebel's. It was created for you - for all of you upset, confused, or just touched in some way by Dr. Lana Schwebel, A"H. She was an incredible person and someone I cannot capture in words. You just had to know her. Those of you who did, you know what I mean. So if you'd like to, I encourage you to make your way over to that blog and either request to join and express yourself or just read what other people have to say. This is one way where we can keep Lana Schwebel's memory alive.

I would also like to share this poem, written by John Donne and taught to me by Dr. Schwebel earlier this year:

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

I just joined this lovely site. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to add some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you want to know how to lose 10 lb in a week, you are believably not looking for a general diet and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and workout plan, Still this demands a lot of time doing utmost cardio workouts and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will draft the perfect steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a week.

1. Keep Distance from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast each day. (this speeds up up your metabolism)
3. Consume reasonable portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Rather than consuming 3 huge a meals a day, eat up 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Take proper sleep every night. Not having adequate rest causes been proven to be a ranking factor to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Utilize a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of extra fat stored close to the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those people who want to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an excellent method of burning weight quickly.

Hi guys,

I know this might be a bit off topic but seeing that a bunch of you own websites, where would the best place be to host. Someone recommended I use [url=http://bit.ly/aTAtZb]Blue Host[//url] for $6.95 a month which seems like a great deal. Anyone here on www.blogger.com using them?

Hi there,

I officially gave up with making money with websites beginning 2010 when I decided to take another approach to making money and not working for a boss. This is when I met James aka 'The Prophet'. James is good at mathematics and he has applied his skills at trading penny stocks. I started trading alongside James and so far I'm having great results. I initially invested $100 which has now grown to $180 in just over a month. How is that for a great return? I invite everyone to join the program and receive daily trading instructions directly in your inbox. You can even give James a call. You don't even have to know how the stock market works. You can get trading within an hour, [url=http://tinyurl.com/yc3xkhx]PennyStockProphet[/url] Join the proram, it's risk free, you receive a 2 month money-back guarantee. Just thought I'd share my 2 cents worth.
