Two things that are absolutely clear is that the navigation rail has to have some kind of colored background to set it aside from the content and that it has to be on the left side of the page. There are a few usability reasons why it would have been better to have the navigation rail on the right side of the page:That convention is probably stronger now than then!
* Fitts' Law dictates that shorter mouse movements are better: it is always faster to click a target if it is closer to your starting position. Thus, placing the navigation rail next to the scroll bar will usually save users time over placing these two frequently-accessed areas on opposite sides of the window.
* Users always look at the content first when they encounter a new web page, so it would be better if the content started at the left border of the window (for users in cultures that read left-to-right). After the users are done with the content, their gaze could naturally shift to the right to decide where to go next. In contrast, placing the navigation rail to the left requires users to skip over it before they can start scanning the content area.
And now that the publishers are finally starting to see that open access isn’t going away just because they sling mud at it, they’re getting scared.Then Dorothea takes a swing at Data Conversion Labs. Their web presence seems to be "down" as I write, perhaps its an overload with all the visitors D has sent their way!
You can wake up and start talking to librarians, figuring out how to serve us—or you can get the hell out of our way.So lets hear the cheer people:
Virtual Religion Index - one of the best longterm listings of religion including biblical online resourcesAnd now (thanks to Mark G. who pointed it out) he has a blog, which already has some useful hints on getting a Google search for academic sites.
Into His Own: Perspective on the World of Jesus - a collection of English translations of key texts providing background to the New Testament world
A Synoptic Gospels Primer - fine online introduction to synoptic issues
Jesus Seminar Forum - resources around this attempt to define the historical Jesus
The blog should do what you say its going to do.And, because they are working with a distinction between "professional blogs" and some other category - presumably "personal blog" - both suggest that mixing professional interests and personal ones is a good way to loose readers.
God is nice and he likes me.
Jason seems to have liked hearing from it and links to Conrad's tale of controversy and book-banning.As a long time protestor at the decision of the IBS to bow to pressure and reinstate the gratuitously sexist translations in the NIV, I am interested in the "new" translation.
Clearly, the baby boomers cocked up the whole marriage thing. They got hitched too young, felt unfulfilled en masse, split up and occasionally repeated the process.Later she goes on:
My beloved and I will get married when we’re good and ready – and only because we can see the value in celebrating our commitment to each other with all the people who matter to us.From other things she writes it’s clear she sees this as totally different from the dreams and ideals of the generation before. Perhaps it is. Though, it shares with the boomers’ the belief that a couple “should stick together for the sake of the kids”. And like theirs it is also, in its own way, totally different from the Christian view of marriage.
What’s more we’ve already taken the ultimate leap of faith – we had a baby together. Having both emerged (slightly dented) from broken homes, it’s our sworn mission to maintain a happy whole family for the sake of our son.
Don't force me to leave you; don't make me go home.Isn’t that what Gen 1 and 2 tell us the Creator planned for marriage – partnership with no holds barred. I hope and pray, that when Thomas and Melissa watch Barbara and me locked in fiery argument, they see the for-richer-for-poorer-in-sickness-and-in-health commitment that undergirds our lives and even feeds the flames!
Where you go, I go;
and where you live, I'll live.
Your people are my people,
your God is my god;
where you die, I'll die, and that's where I'll be buried,
so help me GOD--not even death itself is going to come between us! (Ruth 1:16 17)
