Augustus , the first Emperor In BC the Romans expelled the last king from their city and established an oligarchic republic. Rome then began a period characterised by internal struggles between patricians aristocrats and plebeians small landowners , and by constant warfare against the populations of central Italy: Etruscans, Latins, Volsci , Aequi , Marsi. In the same period, the bankruptcy of the small farmers and the establishment of large slave estates provoked the migration to the city of a large number of people. The continuous warfare made necessary a professional army, which was more loyal to its generals than to the republic. Because of this, in the second half of the second century and during the first century BC there were conflicts both abroad and internally: After his victory, Caesar established himself as dictator for life. Rome was confirmed as caput Mundi , i.

Share Slander is the attributing to another of a fault of which one knows him to be innocent. It contains a twofold malice, that which grows out of damage unjustly done to our neighbor’s good name and that of lying as well. Theologians say that this latter guilt considered in itself, in so far as it is an offence against veracity, may not be grievous, but that nevertheless it will frequently be advisable to mention it in confession, in order that the extent and method of reparation may be settled.
The important thing to note of slander is that it is a lesion of our neighbor’s right to his reputation. Hence moralists hold that it is not specifically distinct from mere detraction. For the purpose of determining the species of this sin, the manner in which the injury is done is negligible.

Share this article Share You can sing sotto voce How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria at the Nonnberg Convent where the young Maria was a postulate, then dance and sing your way round the fountains of the Mirabell Palace and gardens before swooning at the balcony of the Leopoldskron Palace, where the baron and Maria first danced.

Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music If you have an ounce of emotional energy left to Climb Every Mountain, head for the towering Untersberg peak, over which the von Trapps fled to find freedom.
Curiously, the film is not widely known in Austria. With a cast of locals, it’s clear Austria’s got talent when it comes to singing in lederhosen.

According to the International Union of Railways, the high speed train “plays a key role in a stage of sustainable development and combating climate change”. As a regular long-distance train traveller in Europe, I have to say that the opposite is true. High speed rail is destroying the most valuable alternative to the airplane; the “low speed” rail network that has been in service for decades.
The introduction of a high speed train connection invariably accompanies the elimination of a slightly slower, but much more affordable, alternative route, forcing passengers to use the new and more expensive product, or abandon the train altogether. As a result, business people switch from full-service planes to high speed trains, while the majority of Europeans are pushed into cars, coaches and low-cost airplanes.
A look at European railway history shows that the choice for the elite high speed train is far from necessary. Earlier efforts to organize speedy international rail services in Europe accompanied affordable prices and different ways to increase the speed and comfort of a rail trip. Quite a few of these services were even faster than today’s high speed trains. Almost as fast as the high speed train, but two to three times cheaper.
Five years ago I promised my readers I would not fly anymore. Hopping on a plane would be a hypocritical thing to do when you run a publication called Low-tech Magazine. Since then, I have been travelling across Europe almost exlusively by train apart from the occasional boat trip , good for some 70, km of long-distance travel.
Europe has the most amazing railway network in the world. It gets you anywhere, anytime, and it’s much more fun and interesting to travel by train than by air.

Flying has become so cheap in Europe that it’s now cheaper to live in Barcelona and commute by plane each day, than to live and work in London.
