  In 1492, a dramatic discovery was made in the course of repairs to a mosaic in Church of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme (Rome): a brick inscribed with the words TITULUS CRUCIS (Title of the Cross). Sealed behind the brick was a fragment of an inscription in wood, with the word «Nazarene» written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin

. . . . . . . . . . הנצ . . . . .
 . . . . . . . B SUNERAZAN SI
. . . . . 

ישו] הנצ[רי מלק היהודים]

This Title is mentioned in all four Gospels accounts:
Pilate also wrote a title (joltit-John 19:19) and put it on the cross; it read, «Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews». Many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Christ was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek (John 19:19-20; also Matthew 27:37; Mark 15:26; Luke 23:38).   
The name of Joshua in Aramaic.

950th jubilee celebration of the world - famous Ostromir Gospel 
06:13pm 14/07/2007
On May, 12th, 2007 950 years from that day when the scribe deacon Gregory has written on parchment aprakos Gospel Book for the city governor (posadnik) of Novgorod, Ostromir (hence the name of the book), were executed exactly. In the Institute of the Russian language named after V.V. Vinogradov (Russian Academy of Sciences) took place Cyrillo-Methodianum Readings, dedicated to the anniversary of the the earliest dated East Slavic book.
Addressing to opening of ceremonial session of the Academic Council of the Institute of the Russian language, corresponding member of Russian Academy of Sciences A.M. Moldovan has noted, that the anniversary forum reflects that interest which the Ostromir Gospel represents for historians, philologists, art critics and representatives of other areas of scientific knowledge. In the reports presented on Readings the new data about this unique manuscript have been reflected.
E.M. Vereschagin's report (Institute of the Russian language) has been devoted to the value of the Ostromir Gospel for a modern condition of Russian literary language. According to the lecturer, this earliest surviving dated Russian handwritten book remains a tuning fork of Russian literary language.
In E.S. Smirnova's report (The State Institute of art-critique) "The niniatures of the Ostromir Gospel: features of a composition" have been offered the art criticism analysis with the attraction of the Carolingian’s analogies, allowed to draw a conclusion about the West-European sources of the unique miniatures of this monument.
O.G. Uliyanov (St. Andrey Rublev’s Central Museum of Ancient Russian Culture and Art) in the report placed for doubt the existing opinion on the primary acceptance in the Russian Church of the worship rules of Constantinople origins. Based on the example of the Menologium of the Ostromir Gospel the lecturer has cited the new data, which attest to the fact that Russian divine service in the end of X - the middle of XI centuries has tested essential influence of the Jerusalem Holy Sepulchre Typicon. The source of  the liturgical tradition of the Russian Church, by O.G.Ulyanov's opinion, became the Patriarchate of Antioch.
In a finishing part of the forum it has noted been, that though the Ostromir Gospel is located in the field of the sight of scientists already more than 200 years, it is far from studied; therefore the future promises to us still numerous scientific discoveries.

  Hello mathmaticians/engineers/scientists (AKA tortured souls),

I have the full solutions manual in PDF format of a popular differential equations textbook:

Boyce, William & DiPrima, Richard. Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems. 8th Ed. 2004.

It is currently being sold on Ebay and half.com for about $6.00. Since I already have it, I would llike to share so as to not rip off my friends and help as many as I can. If you would like a copy of it for free, simply e-mail me at the address noted in my user info. I would be more than happy to help you.

My description of science is this:

"Science: An interest in study by which one observes, describes and agrees with The Creation God created. To educate oneself for self development and to grow in the understanding of God. One must already believe by faith in God and then study what He has created for further self development, lest he/she describe it, learn it and not see God's hand in it."
