Atlantis Found: Giant Sphinxes, Pyramids In Bermuda Triangle | Angel wings and Unicorns Atlantis found in Bermuda Triangle Two scientists, Paul Weinzweig and Pauline Zalitzki, working off the coast of Cuba and using a robot submersible, have confirmed that a gigantic city exists at the bottom of the ocean. The site of the ancient city — that includes several sphinxes and at least four giant pyramids plus other structures — amazingly sits within the boundries of the fabled Bermuda Triangle. According to a report by Arclein of Terra Forming Terra, Cuban Subsea Pyramid Complex, the evidence points to the city being simultaneously inundated with rising waters and the land sinking into the sea. This correlates exactly with the Atlantis legend. The disaster may have occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. Arclein observes: “At the time uplifted portions of the Mid Atlantic Ridge subsided also including Lyonese and the home islands and land mass around the Azores. This would have produced an orthogonal pressure forcing subsidence to either East or West. Atlanticú. Like this:

A publishing how-to: Tips from Stacey Pierson, Ph.D. (Part 1) « Post Academic Stacey Pierson is Lecturer (which translates to Assistant Professor here in the States) at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, specializing in Chinese Ceramics and Museum Studies. She is also the one-time curator of the prestigious Percival David Foundation of Chinese Art, and I imagine she could also probably work as a junior archeologist, ace appraiser, and Chinese translator, if she wanted to! "Chinese Ceramics book cover" (Courtesy of Stacey Pierson) But, for our purposes here at Post Academic, it’s her experiences as a published author of two books–Chinese Ceramics: A Design History (V&A, 2009) and Collectors, Collections and Museums: the Field of Chinese Ceramics in Britain, 1560-1960 (Peter Lang, 2007)–and her current post as the Editor of the journal Transactions of the Oriental Ceramics Society that we’re most interested in. The interview continues below the fold… "Collectors, Collections and Museums book cover" (Courtesy of Stacey Pierson)

History in The Making Journal 19 Colorized Postcards from Early 1900s China 1 of 19 Ancient skeletons discovered in Georgia threaten to overturn the theory of human evolution By David Derbyshire Updated: 12:26 GMT, 9 September 2009 For generations, scientists have believed Africa was the cradle of mankind. Now a stunning archaeological discovery suggests our primitive ancestors left Africa to explore the world around 800,000 years earlier than was previously thought before returning to their home continent. It was there - hundreds of thousands of years later - that they evolved into modern humans and embarked on a second mass migration, researchers say. Astonishing discovery: Archaeologists have unearthed six ancient skeletons dating back 1.8 million years in the hills of Georgia Archaeologists have unearthed six ancient skeletons dating back 1.8 million years in the hills of Georgia which threaten to overturn the theory of human evolution. The Georgian bones - which include incredibly well preserved skulls and teeth - are the earliest humans ever found outside Africa.

:: clevergirl.org ::: 216. Happy New Year! Norma Envelope Clutch - free pattern Happy New Year!!! New Year's Day is my favorite holiday! But how would you know or remember that, given my propensity toward semiannual blog updates? I plan to blog more frequently in 2012. I've missed sharing my sewing exploits, and I have talked myself out of posting some patterns and tutorials for silly reasons. First up in the new year is a free pattern and pseudo-tutorial (you'll see what I mean in a moment) for an envelope clutch. I drafted a pattern and sewed the first prototype for this envelope clutch in October, and when I took it out one evening, my friend Norma gushed. Download the Norma Envelope Clutch Pattern here. You'll need: 3/4 yard (27 inches) fabric for bag3/4 yard (27 inches) fabric for liningmagnetic closuresapprox. 40 inches piping (optional)Norma Envelope Clutch Pattern, printed and assembled, which will look like this if you can decipher the little matching code system I tried hard to remember from Burdastyle patterns of yore: Use 3/8" seam allowance all around.
