CUP

ISO 4217 code for the Cuban peso. The peso is one of two official currencies in Cuba, the other being the convertible peso. The CUP has no official value outside of Cuba; to convert CUP, one must first convert it to convertible pesos, which are then exchangeable for other currencies. Most workers receive portions of their salaries in both currencies; they buy basic items like food with CUP and use convertible pesos for luxury goods.

conditional use permit (CUP)

(pronounced “cup”) A permit granted to a property owner to make use of real property in a manner allowed under current zoning regulations, but only in accordance with conditions to be applied by the zoning authority. Houses of worship may be allowed in areas zoned for residential use,but the applicant may be required to obtain a conditional use permit that can be predicated on size, off-street parking availability, indirect nighttime lighting, and other such factors determined on a case-by-case basis. Contrast with variance, in which the property owner is given permission to use the property in a manner inconsistent with current zoning regulations.

Illa poculum a serpente propinatum libenter accepit, et uiro tradidit, ex quo simul mererentur occidi: haec gratia caelesti desuper infusa uitam protulit, per quam caro mortua posset resuscitari.(35)
The only modifications Gregory has introduced to the formula are to substitute Mary Magdalene for the Virgin, apply the cup metaphor to both women, and develop Quodvultdeus's fairly perfunctory image of the poculum into the more suggestive potus mortis and poculum vitae.
