Countdown to the Total Solar Eclipse of 2017

'The day the sun disappears is coming'

Judson Jones, CNN Meteorologist - cnn.com - July 24, 2017

 (CNN) - In less than a month, on August 21, the sun will disappear across America.

For a swath of the country from Portland, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, it will look like someone just turned off the sun in the middle of the day.

Fourteen states across the US will experience about two minutes of darkness as the eclipse crosses from coast to coast between 10:15 a.m. Pacific Time in Oregon until about 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time in South Carolina.

Total Solar Eclipse 2017: How to Make Sure You Don’t Miss It

I remember a few years ago when there was an "eclipse" of Venus and the Sun. I was a nice still warm sunny late afternoon. The late afternoon Sun was beating down at an angle over the dry grassy hills and groves of trees in the distance. Then came the wonderful ~~DIM~~

I enjoyed that Venusian eclipse, the red moon, the orange harvest moons, and all of the supermoons....  but this event should be much more dramatic. Something special. Perhaps even better than Halley's Comet which I remember when I was very young. This natural event should be one to really be somewhere for.

The London Mithraeum: A Future for the Past | Bloomberg

Justmeans

Bloomberg’s new European headquarters in London will be located on one of the UK’s most significant archaeological sites – a temple dedicated to the Roman god Mithras. As stewards of the ancient site and artifacts, Bloomberg is creating an innovative museum experience that will change the way we encounter archeology.

This video explores the history of that site and the mysterious cult of Mithraism, and provides a sneak peek at the forthcoming exhibition.

London Mithraeum

The London Mithraeum, also known as the Temple of Mithras, Walbrook, is a Roman mithraeum that was discovered in Walbrook, a street in the City of London, during a building's construction in 1954. The entire site was relocated to permit continued construction and this temple of the mystery god Mithras became perhaps the most famous 20th-century Roman discovery in London.


Do you recall the 1954 London Mithraeum dig?

Exerpt: Then on Saturday, September 18th, 1954, the last day of the excavation, a marble head of the god Mithras, identifiable by his characteristic Phrygian cap, was found. The handsome young deity would have gone unnoticed too if it hadn’t been for a newspaper photographer from nearby Fleet Street who was on the spot and took some pictures. They were printed the next day in The Sunday Times and caused an immediate sensation.

"Mithras" was the god Saturn. Roman "Mithraism" came from ancient Greece, which had come from ancient Persia, which can be traced clear back into the very ancient world... back to Sumeria.

Great stature of the Almother

Some time ago I purchased a small ceramic statue which resembled Freya in my mind. The light color of the statue, the dark brown Germanic wings, her fine features and lanky graceful body. It made me wonder what would be the best representation of the Proto-European Goddess in art form? I finally ran into one which may fit the bill. The image to the right doesn't really do it justice, as I would suggest you check the second link below to see a larger detailed view. It exemplifies the Almother as rough but nurturing... "firm but fair"..... a symbol of evolutionary struggle often missing in Wiccan circles. Although described as "Celtic," and of course there's the historical conflation, but the symbolism bascially stems from the pre-Celtic Europe. There is a companion statue of Cernunnos as well.

Time to eliminate perhaps the stupidest slang word ever

If someone finds that a beautiful women maintains herself, or ages like a fine wine; that's one thing. However, the slang term "milf" is one of the most degrading acronym-words in American English, if not the worst one. What's the point of it? Every guy who uses it has a mother, right? Even if they hated their mother, why drag down all of humanity with them? It wouldn't be important if it had remained a low usage guttural term, but it has only increased over the years and is just casually accepted. The feminists don't seem to mind; they don't believe in motherhood anyway. Whenever anyone opposes some baboon-like sexual practice, it is usually met with treatment as though one were trying to take their freedom away! Do I have this wrong?... I disliked 'Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer' after all.

Poem from the cover of the original Farmer's Almanac (1793)

"While the bright radient fun in centre glows,
The earth, in annual motion round it goes;
At the fame time on its own axis reels,
And gives us change of feafons as it wheels."

["feafon" apparently means either "season" or "winter in the southern hemisphere"; "radient" was the spelling used]

Beautiful trailer, along with the ones at the end there; that rounded top. How come so many things looked more stylish in the fifties? Automobiles, refrigerators, stoves, clocks, jukeboxes. I purchased a small clock awhile back, and it was in the style of perhaps a 50's clock with a rounded design, round display, simple large numbers and hands, and even a glow in the dark blue light. Also, it's nice to see so many cities beautifying with the old style street lamps now.

Approaching closer the star on the zenith of one’s inner world helps one. Realize that it too, is a sun. Thus, the star and God are sun and are one. With this knowledge of the pagan path of redemption, the grateful dead become silent and vanish up into the night sky to travel to seek their own inner stars.”  -- Carl Jung

Joe Rogan - Conor McGregor Won First Press Conference over Floyd Mayweather! Joe Rogan about Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Press and Prediction who will win!

Floyd Mayweather has been such a trash talker over the years, even unmercifully taunting veteran boxers who were on the downside. So it's amusing to see him get a taste of his own medicine lately. Logic would state that Conor McGregor would have no chance. Even the greatest boxers of all time would never be able to win a championship without any pro bouts! However, McGregor is so good at what he does that it's a bit different here. He's younger, stronger, bigger, taller, has a longer reach, and perhaps hungrier.... and this all could overturn logic sometimes.

If he could establish a powerful jab and knew how to used it to his advantage; sometimes a great jab can overcome a faster/quicker opponent. Then he may be able to land some long looping right and left power punches out've his own skill set. Then, theoretically, he could stalk the boxer/counterpuncher. He would need combinations, especially with some rights to the body, and maybe could pin Mayweather against the ropes and use body punches and some of his own close in tactics which may be borderline dirty. That's the only way I think he could even make it interesting for awhile.

Mayweather is a threat to land a sunday punch like a counter left hook, and could stop McGregor in his tracks and lead to his demise in this bout. McGregor must bring those gloves together to guard or he won't have any chance. I could see McGregor getting Mayweather to the ropes and pushing forward like a ram... trying not to give Mayweather any room to counter. We know that Mayweather will have his form even in the twelfth round. My prediction is that it will be interesting and entertaining for about four rounds, then Mayweather will start to take control. Conor McGregor has, if translated to the boxing world, what is called good ring size in old boxing language. He's such an athletic specimen, which makes this bout interesting when logic says otherwise.

The only boxer to even be mentioned as far as challenging for a world title without any professional experience was Cuban amateur boxing great Teofilo Stevenson against Muhammad Ali back in the 70s. He was so polished that he may have made it interesting for a while had that matchup every happened. Conor McGregor is a little bit different in that he has engaged in long grueling UFC bouts, and has a whole different set of fighting skills. Lastly, with his Irish brogue (sounding a bit like old Norse), bearded appearance, and alpha male manner; McGregor could remind one of Travis Fimmel.... Ragnar from 'Vikings'! Mayweather vs. McGregor is such a crazy clash of personalities, and with the cringy racial twist to it..... it's almost like "Django vs. Ragnar."

We went to the moon

The dust has finally settled enough on this issue to speculate on it. Apparently we went to the moon in 1969, but NASA released photographs and footage from the training and preparation process as authentic. This is why there are so many artificial elements to it.... wires, the stiff flag, the astronauts frolicking around, the clear shadow of a photographer and his tripod captured on the reflection of the astronaut's face piece, etc. Perhaps NASA doesn't want to admit that they were untruthful.

Greatest coincidence ever? - Edwin Booth and Robert Lincoln

Edwin Booth saved Abraham Lincoln's son, Robert, from serious injury or even death. The incident occurred on a train platform in Jersey City, New Jersey. The exact date of the incident is uncertain, but it is believed to have taken place in late 1864 or early 1865. Robert Lincoln recalled the incident in a 1909 letter to Richard Watson Gilder, editor of The Century Magazine.

The incident occurred while a group of passengers were late at night purchasing their sleeping car places from the conductor who stood on the station platform at the entrance of the car. The platform was about the height of the car floor, and there was of course a narrow space between the platform and the car body. There was some crowding, and I happened to be pressed by it against the car body while waiting my turn. In this situation the train began to move, and by the motion I was twisted off my feet, and had dropped somewhat, with feet downward, into the open space, and was personally helpless, when my coat collar was vigorously seized and I was quickly pulled up and out to a secure footing on the platform. Upon turning to thank my rescuer I saw it was Edwin Booth, whose face was of course well known to me, and I expressed my gratitude to him, and in doing so, called him by name.

Booth did not know the identity of the man whose life he had saved until some months later, when he received a letter from a friend, Colonel Adam Badeau, who was an officer on the staff of General Ulysses S. Grant. Badeau had heard the story from Robert Lincoln, who had since joined the Union Army and was also serving on Grant's staff. In the letter, Badeau gave his compliments to Booth for the heroic deed. The fact that he had saved the life of Abraham Lincoln's son was said to have been of some comfort to Edwin Booth following his brother's assassination of the president.

Are seeds alive?

A seed is the embryo of a new plant and as such is a living thing ,but in a dormant state, which requires being buried in soil or other suitable matter to trigger off the renewal process.

[From 'What is a seed? Is it living or non-living?']


What is the oldest seed ever germinated?

It was germinated in 2005. (For more details refer to Judean date palm: Germination of 2000-year-old seed). The third oldest viable seed recorded is the carbon-14-dated 1,300-year-old sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera), recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China in 1995.

[From 'Oldest viable seed']

************

2,000 years is a long time to ponder that some viable life form could lay dormant.... literally in a type of suspended animation. Now mix that concept with the fact that animal DNA has been admixed into plant DNA.... plant/animal hybrids. For example rat DNA into tobacco plants or hamster DNA into tomato plants. You've gotta know that somewhere, someplace, someone is playing god with human DNA right now.

Religious Symbols Killed By National Socialism

There are many of them including the Black Sun, Meandros, Fasces, and more, but these are the main ones.  Most of these symbols are used by Hindus, Pagans, Norse, and so on for a multitude of reasons, but unfortunately because of one regime and a lack of education these symbols are considered forever tainted.

Was H.H. Holmes "Jack the Ripper?"

In other words, was America's first serial killer the same individual as England's first serial killer? Even if he wasn't... this guy had constructed a "Murder Castle" in Chicago, fitted with dungeons, torture chambers, shoots to push people down, operating tables to dismember bodies, pipes with poison gas, etc. This was probably the source of the fictional ideas behind so many horror movies over the years. If someone made a movie about what this guy did, nobody would believe it could actually happen!

American Ripper, an eight-part limited series that premiered on the History Channel on July 11, 2017, examined the possibility that Holmes actually survived his execution, traveled to Whitechapel, London and subsequently became Jack the Ripper. The show featured Jeff Mudgett (Holmes' great-great-grandson) and his team of investigators (including CIA criminologist Amaryllis Fox) following this hunch, including exhuming Holmes' grave.
