A coin used in the United Kingdom, worth one twentieth of a pound, 5 new pence, or 12 old pence prior to 1971; Printing, A virgule; ETYMOLOGY: Middle English, from Old English scilling; O.E. scilling, a coin consisting of a varying number of pence (on the continent, a common scale was 12 pennies to a shilling, 20 shillings to a pound), from P.Gmc. *skillingoz- (cf. O.S., Dan., Swed., O.Fris., O.H.G. skilling, O.N. skillingr, Du. schelling, Ger. Schilling, Goth. skilliggs), which some etymologists trace to the base *skell- "to resound, to ring," and others to the base *skel- "to split, to divide" (perhaps via sense of "shield;" see shield).

AQ 997 = DIFFERING PERCEPTIONS OF CURRENT POLITICAL QUESTIONS (Westeners and Arabs often have strikingly different perceptions of political events and the meaning of these events to them. Since they start from widely different assumptions and readings of the same set of political facts, the difference in conclusions is not surprising. But one group often has no idea what the other is thinking, or that it holds such widely differing perceptions, and this fact may impact on business decisions. Avoid this kind of discussion if at all possible. p23. AQ-899 A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO LIVING AND TRAVEL IN THE ARAB WORLD, AQ-274 NANCY A.

AQ 1052 = {#1052 Belgica (1925 VD), Main-belt Asteroid, Discovered 1925-Nov-15 by Delporte, E. at Uccle; named in honor of the state of Belgium. This is the first minor planet to be discovered in Uccle (see planet 1276 Ucclia), Belgium. Brian G. Marsden (private communication) discovered a remarkable piece of history involving minor planet names and World War I. He detected a correspondence between Prof. W.W. Campbell, director of the Lick Observatory, and Rev. J. Metcalf which proves that Metcalf submitted the name "Belgica", evidently during 1915-1917 (after the Belgian relief effort but before the United States entered the war), and had it turned down by Prof. F. Cohn, director of the Astronomisches Rechen-Institut in Berlin. In a letter from October 1, 1919 Prof. Campbell wrote to Metcalf: "Professor Russell of Princeton told a group of astronomers in Washington last June about a most remarkable incident of which he said you were the hero. The circumstances were reported to be as follows: Before the United States entered the great war you forwarded to the Rechen-Institut in Berlin a list of four asteroids discovered by you, with proposals for the names which they should bear. One of these names was Belgica. The head of the Recheninstitut responded refusing to utilize this name and expressing the hope that you were not casting political aspersions, or something of that kind. Would you be so good as to let me have the precise facts in the case? I think the incident is most remarkable..." The (undated) answer by Metcalf says the following: "...The facts of the would be Belgica are briefly these. At the Allied Bazaar Prof. (Henry Norris) Russell asked me for an unnamed asteroid that the naming of it might be sold to the highest bidder. I sent him four. The people paid the price (about $50) and sent me through Prof. Russell the names. One of them was Belgica. I saw the possibility of trouble but I sent it along as I had agreed to Prof. Cohn of the Rechen-Institut sent backward that it was 'impossible' at the moment anyway. I think myself it was poor taste. Of course he blamed me. I never took the trouble to tell him how it happened. The other names were very long queer ones that they objected also. In fact, the only successful part of it was that we obtained some money for the Allied Bazaar. I am afraid Belgium was a pretty sore spot with them about the time I wrote the letter..." Unfortunately, our search did not show any surviving ARI documents that shed more light on this incident. Marsden suspects that all minor planets discovered by Metcalf from (726) Joëlla onward, with the possible exception of (747) Winchester (home town of Rev. Metcalf), were named by Harlow Shapley soon after Metcalf's death in 1925. Metcalf moved from Winchester, Mass. to Portland, Maine around 1920, two years before Shapley came from Mt. Wilson to direct the Harvard College Observatory; Dictionary of Minor Planet Names, Lutz D. Schmadel; [+][+][+][+][+][+][+][+]} = AMPHIDEMON OF SUBTLE INVOLVEMENTS (AND INTRICATE PUZZLES) = ARGUING OVER POSITIONS ENDANGERS AN ONGOING RELATIONSHIP (AQ-274 GETTING TO YES) = BLESSED, UNUTTERABLY BLESSED, IS THIS LAST OF THE ILLUSIONS (Glow-worm) = CROSS OUR HEARTS AND WE HOPE TO DIE, THAT THE OTHER WAS TO BLAME (AQ-303 GAMES PEOPLE PLAY) = DEBUNKED ONE OF THE GREATEST ARSON MYTHS ABOUT TEMPERATURE (AQ-302 JUSTICE ON TRIAL) = NO ONE WAS EVER A GREAT MAN WITHOUT SOME DIVINE INSPIRATION (AQ-990 NEMO UNQUAM VIR MAGNUS FUIT, SINE ALIQUO DIVINO AFFLATU) = QUANTITATIVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MICRO-BEHAVIOR OF THE SYSTEM (AQ-454 EMPIRICAL GEOPHILOSOPHY).

AQ 368 = INTRICATE PUZZLES = FIVE SMOOTH STONES.
