The fact that Euphrosyne of Galicia was the daughter of Basileus Isaak II explains the unexpected rise of interest in Stylitism among the princes of Rus' and their milieu. According to Niketas Choniates, Emperor Isaak II especially sympathized with the Stylites and the ascetics and patronized them. Thus he astonished his contemporaries, since the Stylites had lost the influence over the emperors that they had exerted at the time of iconoclasm. The Byzantine hagiography concerning Sts. Daniel the Stylite and Leo the Great Tsar explains the connection between the names of Daniel and Leo among the descendants of Roman Mstislavich. Daniel the Stylite was the spiritual father and the main adviser of Emperor Leo I. Apparently this relationship was reflected in the names of the father and the son, the Galician-Volhynian princes Daniel Romanovich and Lev Danilovich.

A white view of Dr. Khalid
A native of Texas, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour earned a bachelor's degree from Howard University and a law degree from UC Berkeley. Today he is an attorney who has sat on numerous corporate boards, including those of the Saudi African Bank and the Chicago-based LaGray Chemical Company. Mansour made headlines in 2008 when it was revealed that he had formerly been a patron of a young Barack Obama, whom he recommended for admission to Harvard Law School in 1988. It is likely that the two first met at Columbia University in the early 1980s, when Obama was a student there and Mansour was a guest lecturer.
Before converting to Islam, Mansour (whose original name was Don Warden) was heavily involved in San Francisco Bay Area racial politics as founder of the African American Association in the early 1960s. He also served as a personal mentor to Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, helping the pair establish the Black Panther Party; a subsequent falling-out, however, caused Mansour to end his association with them.
In the mid-1970s, Mansour met and became an advisor to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Tatal, who today is best known for having offered a $10 million donation toward 9/11 relief efforts in 2001—an offer that was rejected by New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani when the prince suggested that the terrorist attacks were an indication that America “should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stand toward the Palestinian cause.” Not long after meeting the prince, Mansour in 1977 was introduced to the king of Saudi Arabia and became his attorney.
A friend of the late professor Edward Said, Mansour—a black nationalist—is an outspoken hater of the United States, Israel, and white people generally. In recent years he has accused the U.S. of plotting a "genocide" designed "to remove 15 million black people, considered disposable, of no relevance, value or benefit to the American society." He has told fellow blacks: "Whatever you do to [white people], they deserve it, God wants you to do it, and that's whether you cut off the nose, cut off the ears, take flesh out of their body, don't worry. God wants you to do that." Alleging further that Palestinians in Israel "are being brutalized like savages," he accuses Israel's Jews of "stealing the land the same way the Christians stole the land from the Indians in America."
Mansour's has written numerous books, including such titles as —
First-year seminars: The literature on first-year seminars encompasses the range of models recognized by the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina. Originally developed by Betsy Barefoot, the typology includes: (1) extended orientation seminars; (2) academic seminars with uniform content across sections; (3) academic seminars with variable content; (4) preprofessional or discipline-linked seminars; (5) basic study skills seminars; and (6) hybrid models (Barefoot 1992). Taken together, these models have a nearly universal positive impact on student persistence and positively affect student graduation rates and grades (although the impact on grades fades over time). They lead to more peer and faculty interaction, higher levels of student engagement in and outside of the classroom, and smoother transitions to college. Few studies, however, specifically examine outcomes for underserved students. Those that do find short-term benefits for students' grades and persistence, but do not examine other outcomes.
