Interpretation

Language interpretation is the facilitating of oral or sign-language communication, either simultaneously or consecutively, between users of different languages. The process is described by both the words interpreting and interpretation. Translation studies deal with the systematic study of the theory, the description and the application of language interpretation and translation.

While reading is easy...comprehension is key. Sometimes rereading posts and comments later...do you find your view may be different?

How Would You Cure Your Employee's Cold ?  A man calls his boss and tells him he’s got a splitting headache and a bad cold, so he’ll have to miss work. The boss, interested in making their performance figures for the quarter, pushes his employee to come in despite his condition.  “Here’s what I always do,” the boss says. “I head home and have my wife pour me a bath, the hottest I can stand. I get into the bath and have her gently wash me with a sponge while I sip on some tea. Once she finishes, I then take her to the bedroom and make love to her. After that, I feel like a million bucks!”  “Okay,” his employee says. “I’ll give it a shot.”  Just after lunch, the employee walks into work. The boss walks over to his desk, smiling smugly.  “I told you,” says the boss.  “You were so right,” the employee responds. “That worked like a charm. Oh, and you have a NICE house!”

Do you agree or disagree with these quotes and why?  "No State shall... coin money; emit bills of credit; make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts..." <del> United States Constitution Source: Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1   "There can be no doubt that besides the regular types of the circulating medium, such as coin, notes and bank deposits, which are generally recognised to be money or currency, and the quantity of which is regulated by some central authority or can at least be imagined to be so regulated, there exist still other forms of media of exchange which occasionally or permanently do the service of money. Now while for certain practical purposes we are accustomed to distinguish these forms of media of exchange from money proper as being mere substitutes for money, it is clear that, other things equal, any increase or decrease of these money substitutes will have exactly the same effects as an increase or decrease of the quantity of money proper, and should therefore, for the purposes of theoretical analysis, be counted as money." </del> Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992), Nobel Laureate of Economic Sciences 1974 Source: Prices and Production, 1935, p. 96  "Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.  ...Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose." -- John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) British economist Source: The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919)

You know it's almost impossible to get people to read the Bible honestly. They've been so brought up to take the church interpretation of every word that they read into it whatever they've been taught to find there.
