Kniaz missed out on all that because he was schooled entirely at home and says he didn't miss a thing.
Kniaz's gratitude for being spared some of the more dangerous and corrupting influences of school life may be why anywhere from 850,000 to more than a million children are being homeschooled in the United States now.
Both Kniaz and Price credit their parents for creating a successful, creative and positive homeschooling experience, and according to the experts, the main concern about homeschooling is that some children will be trapped with bad parents as bad teachers.

From stem to stern this ship was painted in all fl, except for the gold tips of her funnels and the stylized golden name plate on her front hull.

  Battleship "Kniaz Potemkin Tavricheskiy"
Originally laid down under the name of "Kniaz Potemkin Tavricheskiy" in 1898, this battleship was commissioned in 1904, having been named in honour of the celebrated Russian statesman instrumental in creation of the Russian Black Sea Fleet during the reign of Empress Catherine II the Great.
This event took place while she was at anchor in the desolate harbour of Tendra, preparing to undergo a firing practice at sea in which she was later to be joined by the rest of the ships of that fleet.
With their cause doomed after this event, the mutinous ships "Kniaz Potenkim Tavricheskiy" and torpedo-boat "No. 267" departed on 1 July 1905 for the Roumanian port of Constanza, planning to replenish their coal and food supplies there, as such were well guarded by the loyal troops in Odessa and completely unobtainable.

After he left Bulgaria in 1879, Kniaz Dondukov was head of the army in the Kavkaz (Caucasus) military region, which was then within the borders of the Russian empire.

Kniaz has a hunch those players will be willing to pay for games with their credit cards, too.
Kniaz says that the sheer volume of transactions—he estimates that Golden Tee players spend as much as $5 per game, to the tune of $400 million annually—enabled the company to negotiate its own rates with credit card vendors.
Kniaz hopes that a predicted 20 percent increase in game play will translate to a similar lift in sales of individual game units, which go for $6,000 each.

The first Christian prince (kniaz') on the Ukrainian territories is considered to have been Prince Askold who became a Christian in 867 AD.

Apart from the ecclesiastical and political connections which Kyivan Rus' maintained with the Apostolic See and the West from the reign of Volodymyr onwards, there were also dynastic ties, particularly through kniaz Yaroslav the Wise, whose four daughters married the Catholic kings of Norway, Hungary, France and Germany.

 LoAR Cover Letter
We have seen that the title Velikii Kniaz meant "Grand" or "High Prince." Although the Russian word "kniaz" is usually translated as "prince," it does not quite correspond to the Western European word.
"Kniaz" indicated essentially, in medieval Russia, a member of the Rurikid dynasty that ruled Russia until the late XVI century.
However, the word "kniaz" is historically connected, in our period, with ruling and military leadership.
