Emperors of the Antarctic – Emperor Penguins
Emperor Penguins are the largest species of penguin
and they live exclusively in Antarctica. These birds stand about 4 feet
tall and are all black with a white patch on their chest which usually
also has hints of yellow. The most amazing thing about these birds is
the commitment they have towards their eggs and their offspring.
Every year, a pair of penguins come together, mate, and once the
female lays the egg; she passes it on to the male. The male peng

21L.010 Writing with Shakespeare (MIT)
William Shakespeare didn't go to college. If he time-traveled like Dr. Who, he would be stunned to find his words on a university syllabus. However, he would not be surprised at the way we will be using those words in this class, because the study of rhetoric was essential to all education in his day. At Oxford, William Gager argued that drama allowed undergraduates "to try their voices and confirm their memories, and to frame their speech and conform it to convenient action": in other

Genesis Cap 1 ad 3 Castellionis Biblia Sacra
This is a re-recording, as I want to listen to this later this week on my walk to school. You will notice that the current readings are slower, and more deliberate. This is partly to rest my ears a bit, and I have noticed that if I read too fast, I miss things. The Latin is much denser than the English, or indeed the original Hebrew text, so it needs a slower reading speed.
