In the 19th century a British consul obtained several of the statues from Bodrum Castle; these now reside in the British Museum . In 1852 the British Museum sent the archaeologist Charles Thomas Newton to search for more remains of the Mausoleum. He had a difficult job. He didn't know the exact location of the tomb, and the cost of buying up all the small parcels of land in the area to look for it would have been astronomical. Instead Newton studied the accounts of ancient writers like Pliny to obtain the approximate size and location of the memorial, then bought a plot of land in the most likely location. Digging down, Newton explored the surrounding area through tunnels he dug under the surrounding plots.
Yumuktepe (modern Mersin ), which guards the Adana side of the gateway, with 23 layers of occupation, is at 4,500 BCE, one of the oldest fortified settlements in the world. The ancient pathway was a track for mule caravans, not wheeled vehicles. In ancient history the Hittites , Greeks , Alexander the Great , the Romans , Mongols , and the Crusaders have all traveled this route during their campaigns. The Bible testifies that Saint Paul of Tarsus and Silas went this way as they went through Syria and Cilicia.
Lady Justice is the symbol of justice . Lady Justice is depicted as a goddess equipped with three symbols of justice: a sword symbolising the court's coercive power; scales representing an objective standard by which competing claims are weighed; and a blindfold indicating that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of power, money, wealth, or identity. [ 1 ] Law is a term which does not have a universally accepted definition, [ 2 ] but one definition is that law is a system of rules and guidelines which are enforced through social institutions to govern behavior. [ 3 ] Laws are made by governments , specifically by their legislatures . The formation of laws themselves may be influenced by a constitution (written or unwritten) and the rights encoded therein.
Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters , known as " tweets ". Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and by July, the social networking site was launched. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with over 500 million registered users as of 2012, generating over 340 million tweets daily and handling over 1.6 billion search queries per day. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ] Since its launch, Twitter has become one of the ten most visited websites on the Internet, and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet ." [ 7 ] [ 13 ] Unregistered users can read tweets, while registered users can post tweets through the website interface, SMS, or a range of apps for mobile devices. [ 14 ] Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco , with additional servers and offices in New York City , Boston , and San Antonio .
Jack Dorsey (born November 19, 1976) is an American web developer and businessman widely known as the creator of Twitter and as the founder and CEO of Square , a mobile payments company. [ 3 ] In 2008, he was named to the MIT Technology Review TR35 as one of the top 35 innovators in the world under the age of 35. [ 4 ] For 2012, The Wall Street Journal gave him the "Innovator of the Year Award" for technology. [ 5 ] [ edit ] Early years Dorsey grew up in St. Louis, Missouri , [ 6 ] and by age 13, he had become interested in dispatch routing . Some of the open source software he created in the area of dispatch logistics is still used by many taxi cab companies. [ 6 ] He was raised Catholic and his uncle is a Catholic priest in Cincinnati. [ 7 ] He went to Catholic high school at Bishop DuBourg High School and attended the Missouri University of Science and Technology before subsequently transferring to New York University , where he first came to contact with the idea for Twitter .

Neoconservative foreign policy is dead -- or so I infer from the first Republican presidential debate , held June 13 in New Hampshire. None of the seven candidates talked about the moral purposes of American power. Quite the contrary: Those who addressed the current bombing campaign in Libya opposed it as a distraction from "national interests." Those who talked about the war in Afghanistan spoke of getting out rather than winning. And none showed any eagerness to talk about foreign policy at all; the subject absorbed a bit under 10 percent of the two-hour debate.
A workflow application is a software application which automates, at least to some degree, a process or processes. The processes are usually business-related, but it may be any process that requires a series of steps that can be automated via software . Some steps of the process may require human intervention, such as an approval or the development of custom text, but functions that can be automated should be handled by the application. Advanced applications allow users to introduce new components into the operation. For example, consider a purchase order that moves through various departments for authorization and eventual purchase.
The Sokal affair , also known as the Sokal hoax , [ 1 ] was a publishing hoax perpetrated by Alan Sokal , a physics professor at New York University. In 1996, Sokal submitted an article to Social Text , an academic journal of postmodern cultural studies . In subsequent publications, Sokal claimed that the submission was an experiment to test the journal's intellectual rigor and, specifically, to investigate whether such a journal would "publish an article liberally salted with nonsense if it (a) sounded good and (b) flattered the editors' ideological preconceptions."

Kepler is a free software system for designing, executing, reusing, evolving, archiving, and sharing scientific workflows . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Kepler's facilities provide process and data monitoring, provenance information, and high-speed data movement solutions. Workflows in general, and scientific workflows in particular, are directed graphs where the nodes represent discrete computational components, and the edges represent paths along which data and results can flow between components. [ 4 ] In Kepler, the nodes are called 'Actors' and the edges are called 'channels'. Kepler includes a graphical user interface for composing workflows in a desktop environment, a runtime engine for executing workflows within the GUI and independently from a command-line, and a distributed computing option that allows workflow tasks to be distributed among compute nodes in a computer cluster or computing grid .
Writing systems of the world today. Other alphabets Other abjads
Orthographies that use alphabets and syllabaries are based on the principle that the written symbols ( graphemes ) correspond to units of sound of the spoken language: phonemes in the former case, and syllables in the latter. However, in virtually all cases, this correspondence is not exact. Different languages' orthographies offer different degrees of correspondence between spelling and pronunciation. English orthography , for example, is highly irregular, whereas the orthographies of languages such as Russian , Spanish and Finnish represent pronunciation much more faithfully, although the correspondence between letters and phonemes is still not exact.
While the concept of diffusion is well accepted in general, conjectures about the existence or the extent of diffusion in some specific contexts have been hotly disputed. An example of such disputes is the proposal by Thor Heyerdahl that similarities between the culture of Polynesia and the pre-Columbian civilizations of the Andes are due to diffusion from the latter to the former—a theory that currently has few supporters among professional anthropologists [ citation needed ] . Attempts to explain similarities between two cultures by diffusion are often criticized for being ethnocentric , since they imply that the supposed "receptors" would not be capable of innovation. In fact, some authors made such claims explicitly—for example, to argue for pre-Columbian trans-oceanic contact as the "only possible explanation" for the origin of the great civilizations in the Andes and of Central America.
We talked to bloggers, linguists and naming experts to get the scoop on finding a name that will work on the web. Begin by brainstorming a list of keywords that relate to your blog, website or company If a name is meaningful to you, it might work even if it doesn't meet the other criteria Nothing kills a name faster than finding out someone else already has it Frances McInnis is a journalist and crossword enthusiast based in New York City.
Every founder struggles to find a great name for her company. Often it’s the first source of good-natured strife between co-founders. It’s an exhilarating, scary combination of having to decide who you are — what you do, the persona you expose — combined with the technical issues of being memorable, spell-able, and available as a domain name. My name started as a whim, was almost changed for the wrong reasons, and ended up with a punch-line I would never have dreamed of.
