# Ricky Martin’s “Vuelve” (Spanish and English)

 Vuelve (Come Back) Algo me dice que ya no volverás Something tells me you’re not coming back Estoy seguro que esta vez No habra marcha atrás Después de todo fui yo a decirte que no Sabes bien que no es cierto Estoy muriendo por dentro Im certain that this time Theres no going back After everything I went to tell you no You know well that its not certain Im dying inside Y ahora es que me doy cuenta Que sin ti no soy nada He perdido las fuerzas, he perdido las ganas He intentado encontrarte en otras personas No es igual, no es lo mismo Nos separa un abismo And now I realize That without you Im nothing Ive lost the strength, Ive lost the desire I tried to find you in other people Theyre not the same, its not the same An abyss separates us Vuelve Que sin ti la vida se me va Vuelve Que me falta el aire si tú no estás Vuelve Nadie ocupara tu lugar Come back Because without you my life just goes by Come back Because I cant breathe if youre not here Vuelve No one can take your place Sobra tanto espacio si no estás No paso un minuto sin pensar Sin ti la vida lentamente se me va Theres so much space if youre not here A minute doesnt go by that I dont think Without you my life passes slowly by Algo me dice ya no sirve de nada Tantas noches en vela Aferrado a mi almohada Si pudiera tan solo regresar un momento Ahora es que te comprendo Ahora es cuando te pierdo Something tells me that its not worth it So many sleepless nights Hugging my pillow If I could go back even a moment Now that I understand you Now that Ive lost you (Coro) (Chorus) Sobra tanto espacio si no estas No paso un minuto sin pensar Sin ti la vida lentamente se me va Theres so much space if youre not here A minute doesnt go by that I dont think Without you my life passes slowly by Y a pesar que fui yo a decirte que no Sin embargo, aqui yo sigo insistiéndote And despite that I went to tell you no Without a doubt Im still here begging you

# George Will Contrasts Liberalism and Conservatism

“Conservatives favor freedom and are willing to accept inequalities of outcome in a free market; liberals tend to favor equality of outcome and are willing to sacrifice and circumscribe freedom in order to get it.”

“What conservatives say is…‘we will protect you against the liberal faith that they can make something straight from the crooked timber of humanity.’”

# Finding Reciprocal Functions SEC, CSC, COT on TI-30XA

First, you may want to refresh your memory of the regular trig functions:

Now, let’s find $\csc \frac{5\pi }{4}$.
If we look it up on WolframAlpha, we find that it equals $-\sqrt{2}$, or, roughly, $-1.4142$.

To get this answer on the TI-30XA, first remember that $\csc$ is equal to $\frac{1}{\sin }$.

So, what we’re looking for could be expressed as $\frac{1}{\sin \frac{5\pi }{4}}$. Once we know this, we can type $5\cdot \pi$ into the TI-30XA.

This gives us ~15.7. (Make sure you’re in radian mode. If not, press the DRG button — located by the 2nd button, upper-left — until you see RAD appear in small letters on the screen.)

Now, we can divide 15.7 by 4. This gives us 3.925. If we take the $\sin$ of this (by pressing the “sin” button while 3.925 is displayed), we get $-0.7$. IF we divide 1 by $-0.7$, we get $-1.43$. As you can see, this is close to the correct value. You can get a more exact value by using the STO function on the calculator. [Press “STO” while a number is displayed on screen and then the number “1” on the keypad. Press the clear button (ON/C). Now, press RCL and the number “1” on the keypad. Your saved value should appear.]
