Eteri was able to be segued into a discussion about Ancient Rome. If that doesn’t make her the greatest coach ever, I don’t know what does.
Firstly, it is the late republic.
I don't know what periodization is taught in American schools, but in all decent schools ( ) it is a late republic. The period of the republic began with 510 BC (The Exile of Tarquin the Proud) to 33 BC (Battle of Actium, death of Antony, Octavian Augustus becomes Sole Ruler/Emperor). The reforms of the Gracchi brothers are undoubtedly a late republic.
Secondly, to put it simply and a little populist, the Gracchi were the leftists of ancient Rome. The opponents of the Gracchi killed them both (the younger brother was beaten to death with fragments of a bench, which, I remember, shocked me very much at school) But you describe it as if we are talking about the routine life of senators in the American Capitol
The opponents of the Gracchi created a real hysteria around the Gracchi, falsely accused them of wanting to become kings. According to Plutarch, before the death of the younger Gracchus, he could not shout to his supporters and began to put his hand to his head, which indicated danger, Gracchus' opponents explained that this meant that he demanded a royal diadem for himself. It was about this attitude to the brothers that flanker was talking about before you got in with your incredibly valuable clarifications.
P.S. Sorry for the off topic
brakes in his post wrote a well-known periodizationSpousal Unit is University Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Classics and Ancient History at Local Large Private University. His degrees are from Yale, Oxford ((University College) and Brown. Decent, perhaps? And not all American. He is in correspondence of course with scholars throughout the globe.
The periodization he uses is accepted by scholars not only in the US, for example. Fascinating that it may be categorized differently elsewhere As well as the other points about the Gracchi, (leftists?) which sadly he would not have accepted in his History of the Roman Republic class. Again, fascinating.

flanker, in the message before very clearly explained above how exactly this periodization occurs
All this is obvious and it basic level - the reforms of Gracchus, their necessity, drew a line at the peak of the republic and began its decline. If they don't teach you that at Yale... well , my condolences.
Also I told you a joke about "I heard this Pavarotti - Vasya sang it to me, nothing special". I'm not sure if this professor would have appeared here, he would have confirmed your words But if he confirmed - well, my condolences, we have all heard a lot about the famous level of American education
Well, that is, they are not mature women. And what's the matter then? If she is, for example, an adult, maybe she did not spend her other years so intensively and therefore became an adult? Well, for some years ... Maybe she was gone for almost four years?
Someone conditional has not been for 4 years ... (laughs)
Yes, someone conditional. I want to say: why Savchenko, who went through, in my opinion, five Olympiads - that is, it is 20 years, her performance increased - why has she not complained for the last 8 years (these are two Olympics) that there are youngsters next to her? Because she is a great athlete. There was not a single cry about this during the era of her skating.
I don't know, but there is Plushenko, relatively speaking ...
Does he exist?
I do not know!
And me too.
Sorry if I'm too mean
Here again the question of choosing the right word. Perhaps the word "virtual" would be more understandable, but I try not to break away from the original very much. And the word "интеллигентная" had to be replaced ...I'm sorry, I'll criticize you a little again At this moment, Eteri is obviously talking about Tuktamysheva (and by the way, I said the same thing recently - that in fact, from the point of view of a sports career, Tuktamysheva is not 24 years old, but 20-21 - again, I will immodestly repeat that smart people have similar thoughts ) Since they are moving on to sensitive topics (the longevity of Tuktamysheva), talk show host half-jokingly suggests a code word for such sitations that he used earlier - "условный" ("conditionally", "relatively speaking"). Here you translate this as "conditional" but in the past part with Plushenko "relatively speaking":
As a result, it will not be clear to non-Russian speakers that this is the same thing, and that this is some kind of euphemism that they playfully use.
