Tense vs. Aspect

The past tense is combined with four traditional aspects to form the structures that are known as the past simple, the past continuous (or past progressive), the past perfect, and the past perfect continuous.

Humanoid Robots

A robot is any mechanical device designed to perform the work usually done by a human. However, not all robots look like humans. Humanoid robots do. With structures based on the human body, humanoid robots are capable of walking with a biped gait, interacting with humans, gaining new skills without assistance, and recharging themselves. Scientists use them to research the human body—in order to improve prostheses, for example—but they have many other functions. What else can humanoid robots do?

Daredevil Sam Patch's Final, Fatal Stunt (1829)

Patch, a one-time mill worker, made a name for himself as a stunt diver in the late 1920s, most famously by leaping from a 125-ft (38-m) ladder into the Niagara River near the base of Niagara Falls not once but twice. Less than a month later, he made another 125-ft jump, ironically billed as "Sam's Last Jump," this time into the Genesee River. With thousands watching, the daredevil leapt to his death. In his first Genesee stunt the week before, what did Patch send over the ledge before jumping? More... Discuss

Johann Eck (1486)

Eck, a German Catholic theologian, was initially friendly with Martin Luther but did not hesitate to condemn Luther's 95 Theses—which criticized papal policy—as heretical. Known for his dialectic skill, he publicly confronted Luther in 1519, and then went to Rome and returned with a papal bull condemning Luther. From then on, he was a leader in the struggle against the reforming party in Germany. How did the students of Leipzig, the site of Eck's confrontation with Luther, react to the bull? More... Discuss

Feast of St. Frances Cabrini

The first American citizen to be proclaimed a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, Francesca Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917) was born in Italy. She founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in 1880 and went on to establish orphanages, schools, and hospitals in many American cities, as well as in Europe and South America. She was canonized on July 7, 1946. Her feast day is commemorated in many places, but particularly at Mother Cabrini High School in New York City, in whose chapel she is buried, and at every establishment of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart.
