"The Owl" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (poetry reading)
In some versions the fourth line in each stanza is repeated. I find it easier to read this version. Some echo has been added to the sound track.
When cats run home and light is come,
And dew is cold upon the ground,
And the far-off stream is dumb,
And the whirring sail goes round,
Alone and warming his five wits,
The white owl in the belfry sits.
When merry milkmaids click the latch,
And rarely smells the new-mown hay,
And the cock hath sung beneath the thatch
Twice or thrice his roundelay

Static If I Had a Hammer
All right, the C++11 Standard is done. Can we go home? Definitely not - progress waits for no one.
For all its might, C++11 is not addressing a few basic needs in template programming. For example, you'd hate to have to define a new function or indeed a whole new class wherever you need an "if" statement; yet, this is exactly what we do for template code. Also, conditional overloading using the likes of std::enable_if is syntactically bulky and semantically ham

Teachers are advised to review content:
J. B. Murray (1908-1988) was a farmer who lived in rural Glascock County, Georgia, near the community of Mitchel.
