Freebase

  1. Dame

    Dame is the female equivalent of the honour of knighthood in the British honours system.. It is the equivalent form of address to "Sir" for knights. A woman appointed to the grades of Dame Commander or Dame Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath, Order of St Michael and St George, Royal Victorian Order, or the Order of the British Empire becomes a Dame. Because there is no female equivalent to a Knight Bachelor, women are always appointed to an order of chivalry. Women who are appointed to the Order of the Garter or Order of the Thistle are not given the title of "Dame" but "Lady". The youngest person to be appointed a dame was Ellen MacArthur, at the age of 28. The oldest was Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies when aged 100. A number of high-profile figures, such as actress Vanessa Redgrave, have declined the honour; see a List of people who have declined a British honour. Formerly, a knight's wife was given the title of "Dame" before her name, but this usage was replaced by "Lady" during the 17th century.

  2. Franck Riester:

    It was one of the symbols of Notre-Dame de Paris and is even more so now, (The rooster) has been scarred by the fire. It was heated and then it fell, something which triggers another debate: should we restore it or leave it like it is, as a witness on what happened on April 15 ?

  3. Kate Hardiman:

    I think that the majority of Notre Dame students are committed to free speech and open dialogue on campus and that these protests are being driven by a very vocal minority who seek to disrupt the event, this is part of a larger trend of students who want to shut down ideas that Notre Dame students find disagreeable. The irony is that ‘ tolerance ’ is the watchword on campuses these days, yet only certain ideas are apparently worthy of being tolerated.
