Record-breaking 113 degrees in downtown L.A.

Today is the hottest day ever recorded in downtown L.A. At 12:15 p.m., the weather station at USC hit the 113-degree mark, breaking the old all-time high of 112, set on June 26, 1990.

It makes today the hottest day since records in downtown L.A. started being kept in 1877, said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service.

I have officially passed...

...the tests to skip the year of Beginning Greek and Beginning Hebrew. I am enrolled in the second (Intermediate) year of them both. That means my summer goals were accomplished, and I am moving forward with proficiency in reading the Bible in its original languages. Many thanks are due to my professors for giving me the desire to study the languages. They have continually encouraged me in my studies.
