why do the english call the french frogs

Ask The History Doc: Why are the French called Frogs? Why are the French called frogs? Is it because they like to eat frog legs? Dear Not, Well, for a change the History Doctor gets a chance to answer a genuinely presented question! Let's not let this start a trend. I am happy to report that I have not one but several answers to this particular question, in spite of the fact that the inquiry is not, strictly speaking, of an historical nature. But we will let that pass, because the answer is at least potentially related to history. I must point out that I had to do some research on the net to come up with this information, and I am therefore indebted to Cecile Charron for her important contribution to human understanding. So here we go! For quite a long time, apparently, the French have

 why won t he divorce his wife

why won t he divorce his wife

Dear Ms. Vicki, Last year, my high school crush and I reconnected as he was going through a separation. When we started talking again, he had moved in with his sister and his wife had moved in with her parents. It's still that way now. He and I have been hanging out, and we have become very close. He says he's told his wife that he doesn't want to be married to her anymore and that he wants a divorce, but he says she refuses to get a divorce because she says it goes against God. The other day, she told him that him not wanting the marriage makes her want to kill herself. I think that's another form of manipulation, but suicide is serious so I haven't said anything. Anyway, he and I love each other, that's for sure. We talk all the time about wanting to have a future together, getting

why do you need a lawyer to buy a house

WhyP you need a Real Estate Lawyer when you buy or sell your home?

This Agreement outlines each person s rights and obligations and sets out what must happen before final closing. As such, it is generally a good idea to have the Agreement reviewed by a lawyer you sign the Agreement. This will help prevent you from agreeing to something that is not in your interests. It is also especially important when buying a new home from a builder because of the numerous and lengthy

 why does a blanket keep you warm

why does a blanket keep you warm

It may be worth pointing out that blankets also (surprisingly) act as (thermal) radiation shields. This is the reason that "emergency blankets" can sometimes be found in survival kits that appear to be nothing more than thin shiny plastic. But they really make a difference in the amount of heat lost by a warm (37 бC) body on a cold night (cloudless sky - assume 0 бC). For a body with an area of 30 cm x 180 cm facing the sky, the area is roughly $0. 5 m^2$. Assuming an emissivity of 0. 3 (just picking a number), the heat loss is given by Or 25 W for the human I just mentioned. That is a not insignificant amount of heat. especially when you consider that the basal metabolic rate ("doing nothing" which is a good approximation of sleep) is around 60 W. And that's not counting the heat you

 why i wanted to be a doctor

why i wanted to be a doctor

Five years ago, I was signing the discharge paperwork of a 1-year-old after being hospitalized for 8 months following cardiac surgery. This patient suffered numerous complications related to his complex heart defect, including a massive stroke. After months of rehabilitation, he was now ready to go home, albeit with a fragile heart. As I was saying goodbye, I remember looking at his single mother and seeing fear in her eyes. Her son demanded special care and would unquestionably dominate her already stretched life. I m scared of my son. What if he tries to die again? I tried to reassure her but couldn t find the words to soften the reality of the situation. We are always here for you and she half-smiled at that notion. When she was gone, the staff celebrated the success, but I couldn t
