Synopsis: A new way of looking at the Law of Moses angle might provide reinforcement to the expected behavioural pattern of believers; while for others, a new look could be a source of a re-evaluation of old positions. Emphasis is that the 10 Commandments are, in a way, just one, one word by one God. Any one of them, to some degree, includes any of the others. This is at the same time connected with the most significant part of the Torah Code, which shows, at least hypothetically, the Divine authorship of the work, and for those so inclined to look at such things, a numerical tie-in between the aforementioned code, and the Commandments.
For some brief years, the United Kingdom and the Argentine Republic shared top-ten of the richest nations status. Just before losing most of Ireland, one of Albion’s subjects, a Guinness, member of the second-richest family of Britain, married the daughter of the French-Basque owner of the renowned Tortoni Café of Buenos Aires. Almost simultaneously, the owner, sons and daughters, and son-in-law, died; and the Tortoni fell on hard times. The greater part of Argentina’s wealth would disappear, the British Lion would lose its cubs, and the Guinnesses would be a little less rich. This is logical in a share-the-wealth mentality world. Nevertheless, where family, in whatever form, was maintained, status remained, and where civilization was disdained, decline was severe. This essay examines the relationship between two families, and is, broadly speaking, an allegory for the success of their respective nations.
The purpose of this article is to present all that is known about Marcus Singkhmoser, (spelling of both the given and family name varies widely). The material was culled from search engines, and inspired by the discovery of his name in a parchment bound book which is shown in a scan in one of the present writer’s articles. As the historical part of this work is based solely on on-line resources, other researchers may be aided in their quest to find relevant material as quickly as possible. Etymological considerations of the surname are included as a means to help determine his lineage. As the weeks of research went by, Singkhmoser’s importance, especially as related to diplomacy, and the Tridentine Council, became ever more apparent. New insights to related questions may also be fostered.
John Kenneth Turner, periodista norteamericano, editor, autor, propagandista, luchador en favor de causas pacifistas y socialistas – y aun, en un tiempo, traficante de armas en pro de un cambio de gobierno en México, se conoce principalmente por su obra de difusión millonaria, México Bárbaro. A pesar de tal éxito, es casi olvidado en su tierra natal. Por haber estado en sintonía con las ondas revolucionarias de México, tiene más fama al sur del Río Grande. Es un caso como en el refrán que reza que nadie es profeta en su propia tierra.
John Kenneth Turner, an American reporter, publisher, author, propagandist, advocate of pacifism and socialist causes – and even one-time gun-runner in support of a regime change in Mexico, partially through the best-seller of his time, Barbarous Mexico – has been almost forgotten in his home country. Having backed the appropriate winds of change south of the Rio Grande, he is more favourably remembered there.
