Some women explain modesty as "marylike modesty" in which a woman wears skirts or dresses that go to the knee or past the knee, shirts with sleeves that cover the elbows if possible(they are harder to find in today's society so the standard will allow for short sleeved shirts, but not sleeveless shirts, tank tops or spagetti strap shirts), no cleavage (this is determined by the woman placing her hand over her chest with her thumb resting on her collar bone, and where the pinky finger sits is as low as a shirt may be for the woman.) and stockings or leggings under the dress if necessary to protect the modesty of the outfit(in cases where the wind may blow the dress or skirt upwards and reveal what is underneath.) Some women will also wear modest swimsuits which are similar to a dress with leggings under it made from swimsuit materials.

There has been a long standing arguement on whether this passage meant that hair was a covering for women, and whether it was a cultural thing. Often the arguement rests on what translation of head a person accepts. Though one strong arguement for the passage commanding women to cover is that if hair is a covering for women then men must shave their heads or else they would be covered for prayer, which the passage says is unjust/unholy just as it says women ought to cover.

The practice of headcovering is growing as many are starting to cover for Mass, or worship again. There are groups on some popular networking sites for those who headcover, and some women will sell coverings that range from Amish and Mennonite prayer Kapps, to Catholic mantillas, and even snoods.

"Diabetes mellitus is characterized by recurrent or persistent hyperglycemia, and is diagnosed by demonstrating any one of the following: Fasting plasma glucose level at or above 7.0 mmol/L (126 mg/dL). Plasma glucose at or above 11.1 mmol/L (200 mg/dL) two hours after a 75 g oral glucose load as in a glucose tolerance test. Symptoms of hyperglycemia and casual plasma glucose at or above 11.1 mmol/L (200 mg/dL). Glycated hemoglobin (hemoglobin A1C) at or above 6.5. (This criterion was recommended by the American Diabetes Association in 2010, although it has yet to be adopted by the WHO.)" The BG used for diagnosing type 1 diabetes is NOT 126 mg/dl when fasting, that is a normal BG! The actual number is closer to 150 if not higher, as a normal non-diabetic would have a blood sugar as high as 150, but not higher. Most are not diagnosed until they are brought into the hospital, or if they have a family member with it they may test for the antibodies. "Given the above research findings, drivers with type 1 diabetes and a history of driving mishaps are recommended to never drive when their BG is less than 80 mg/dl. Instead, these drivers are advised to treat hypoglycemia and delay driving until their BG is above 90 mg/dl. Such drivers should also learn as much as possible about what causes their hypoglycemia, and use this information to avoid future hypoglycemia while driving." The above quote is incorrect. BG lower than 100 is what is often told as the "not to drive range" and there is also a "high" do not drive range, often 150 mg/dl or more. BOTH VARY DEPENDING ON THE DIABETIC AND WHAT THEIR ENDOCRYNOLOGYST DETERMINE AS A SAFE RANGE FOR THAT DIABETIC!

It is extremely hard, and near impossible to find a Sicilian dictionary, as many do not consider it a language but a dialect of Italian.

Many people who live in Sicily will claim to be Sicilians first, then Italians, even though technically Sicily is a part of Italy.
