Polin

Some Jewish historians say the Hebrew word for 'Poland' is pronounced as Polania or Polin in Hebrew. As transliterated into Hebrew, these names for Poland were interpreted as "good omens" because Polania can be broken down into three Hebrew words: po, lan, ya, and Polin into two words of: po lin. The "message" was that Poland was meant to be a good place for the Jews. In later centuries up to 80% of the Jewish world population lived in Poland.

Associate Professor

Associate Professor is an academic title that can have different meanings. In North America and universities elsewhere using the North American system, it is a position between Assistant Professor and a full Professorship. In a number of Commonwealth countries, the title Associate Professor is often used in place of Reader and denotes a position between Senior Lecturer and a full Professorship. It is thus regarded as equivalent to a full Professorship in North America. This usage is typical of universities in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia and other countries. The University of Western Australia for example changed to the American-style system in 2009, and those who until then held the title Associate Professor received the new title Professor, whereas those who until then held the title Senior Lecturer received the new title Associate Professor.

Peninnah

Peninnah was one of Elkanah's two wives, briefly mentioned in the first Book of Samuel. Her name means "pearl" or "coral". Peninnah was less favored than Elkanah's other wife, Hannah; although she bore him more children, Peninnah also brought grief and disharmony to the household by her insolent mocking of infertile Hannah. "And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat." Every year, when Elkanah offered up a sacrifice at Shiloh, he would share out the portions of meat and give Hannah a double portion, which further incited the jealousy of Peninnah. Eventually, in answer to her desperate prayer, Hannah’s womb was opened, and she bore Samuel, and later another three sons and two daughters. Some commentators suggest that Peninnah's actions were in fact noble, and that Peninnah "mocked" the barren Hannah in order to further drive Hannah to pray even harder to God to give her children.
