Abstract: Scholars of the presidency have long embraced the notion that presidents can be ranked in terms of historical greatness based on their performance in the oval office. Scholars of the other branches of government, however, have been reluctant to employ such rankings. There is some evidence that this is beginning to change. Abraham (2008), for example, notes that some judicial scholars rank subsets of Supreme Court justices—specifically, the various “courts,” such as “The Warren Court” and “The Berger Court”)—based on the impact of their rulings. In this paper I capitalize on the availability of Supreme Court rankings and ask: Do great presidents appoint great justices? I begin addressing this question by calculating rankings (from 1-112) of individual Supreme Court justices. Next, I utilize scaling techniques to build a model that attempts to determine whether or not “great” presidents appoint “great” Supreme Court justices. Ultimately, this research represents a novel exploration of the relationship between the executive branch and the Supreme Court.

Abstract: This paper explores the possibility that the ancient Egyptian conception of the desert was analogous to the conception of the sea. Using archaeological, textual, and representational evidence, this idea is examined in order to nuance our understanding of the ancient Egyptian approach to and experience of desert environments.
A primary emphasis is placed on the relationship between desert and marine expeditions in ancient Egypt, which can be compared in their goals and social organization. Both the desert and the sea are barriers, separating Egyptians from foreigners physically and culturally. Travel across both is difficult and requires specialist knowledge. This travel is rewarding, however, especially in terms of trade: both the desert and the sea were conduits for bringing valuable commodities into the Nile Valley. How did these commonalities affect lived experience of both environments, especially considering that many marine expeditions would have started with a trip across the desert, and many desert mining expeditions included a sailing voyage?
Additional attention is given to how these experiences shaped and were influenced by the cosmological associations of desert and sea. By examining ancient representations of and in the desert, religious texts that compare or conflate watery and desert environments, and considering the cults of deities that had dominion in both spheres, this paper explores evidence that the symbolically potent associations of water were sometimes applied to arid landscapes as well. This idea provides an alternate lens for viewing the ancient Egyptian attitude toward desert environments.
