Home Buying

Could a eviction stop you from buying a house?

Under normal circumstances the only thing that might prevent you from buying a house would be if you had insufficient funds to do so, or were unable to demonstrate that you had obtained a loan enabling you to do so.

Buying a house is simply buying a piece of property. Having been evicted from a house you were renting or sharing would not affect your ability to buy a house unless in the remote possibility that the seller of the house considered you such a poor example of a neighbour that they didn't want to inflict you on the neighbourhood in which they were selling.

In the same way, you might treat your motor vehicle or saucepan so badly that they were worthless except as scrap metal, but this wouldn't normally prevent you buying another motor vehicle or saucepan provided you could pay for it.

Why did some people disapprove of theatre?

Theater as we know it is descended from Greek and Roman expressions of a religious nature. The three plays found in a tragedy series, show the effects of pride and the resultant downfall, aided by the gods, of the prideful. The fourth play, called the Satyr play was of a farcical nature and made fun of the other three thus providing comic relief much like dessert after a heavy dinner. With the growth of the present day religious system Greek and Roman religion was considered Pagan and mythological and greatly to be suppressed. As a consequence people that were involved in theater were considered �low� by people who considered themselves high society. The people that enjoyed plays, it being a relief from their day to day toils imposed on them by the same high society probably being uneducated did not get to pass on their views.

artist are emotional people,highly emotional, if you dont grow up in and artists family you cant really see the perspective . case in point dennis prager is a great example! he was born. i frankly find that hard to believe. in this century hes more like" the wiz"

anyway his dad made sure he was taught by Rabbis. he had to convey the importance of this God, he new and his legacy. he took control of his sons spiritual welfare . i think if his mom was in charge dennis would have been a little whimp. sorry women are raising wimps and girls that cant spell! sorry iwould like to end by saying people put all their time and energy trying to get what the finest man or nastiest girl using each other in a marriage that was doomed from the start . they dont know simply because they were not taught .the arts disipline, study the artist gift. some have talent some have gifts. and sometimes he reaveals someone like whitney houston brian stokes mitchell criminal mind show cast and crew and many others i believe we are instuments that are completely of control in our minds and actions and somethings got to be done. hollywood is completely out of control!!

What opera is The Students Chorus from?

This is only a "WAG," but I'm thinking that what you're looking for is Romberg's operetta The Student Prince that has a "chorus of students" in it. One of the most popular songs from it is the "Drinking Song" sung by the student chorus. Hope that helps.

I believe there is also a Students Chorus in Gounod's"Faust". Possibly others as well.

Answer 2. There's a "Student's Chorus" in Berlioz's Dramatic Legend, The Damnation of Faust.
