QUARRELS also spring up in friendships where there is inequality between the friends.Each regards himself as entitled to more than he has,and when you get a state of affairs like that,a rupture is inevitable.When one of the friends has a better moral character than the other,he  thinks that more is due to him on the principle that goodness should always have the preference.But then the more useful friend puts in a similar claim,arguing that one who has no useful contribution to make to the partnership is not entitled to an equal share in the profits;it is expecting the man to be a philanthropist,not a friend,if he is not to draw from the friendship any advantage at all proportionate to the efforts he has made to make it a success.-excerpt from:Chapter Fourteen, Book Eight-THE ETHICS OF ARISTOTLE   /   There is no point here-except to show how Aristotle uses words.

<br>Eratosthenes         <br>276-195 B.C.E.       <br>One of his major accomplishments in mathematics is his creation of a sieve that determines prime numbers up to any given limit. This sieve, which is called, the Sieve of Eratosthenes, is still important today in number research theory. Prime numbers are natural numbers greater than 1 that can be divided without remainder only by itself and by 1. Eratosthenes figured out that if you were to write down all the natural numbers from 2 to infinity and "sieve out" every second number after two (or multiples of two), then move to the next available number (3) and continue to "sieve out" every multiple of 3 and so on, one would end up with a list of prime numbers. <br>
