What Really Happened at Plymouth [This article is excerpted from Chapter 18 of Conceived In Liberty, Volume I, now available as a free ebook (PDF).] The first successful settlement in New England was something of an accident. By 1617 the Pilgrims had determined to leave the Netherlands, where their youth were supposedly being corrupted by the "licentiousness" of even the Calvinist Dutch, who, for example, persisted in enjoying the Sabbath as a holiday rather than bearing it as a penance. Deciding to settle in America, the Pilgrims were offered an opportunity to settle in New Netherland, but preferred to seek a patent from the South Virginia Company, which would provide an English atmosphere in which to raise their children. Ancient Roman Sex and Prostitution EtruscansAncient Rome Medieval Rome RenaissanceBaroqueModern Rome Sex and prostitution in ancient Rome, eroticism, can be said to have been something which was treated openly and with little hypocrisy but in exchange its raw power was somehow checked through satire. Martial's poems are particularly direct. Ovid's poems "The Art of Love" (Ars Amatoria) could have raised an eye-brow or two given their focus on the woman's pleasure, passive pleasure, which to the Roman's was supposedly of a lesser value than active pleasure.

Using Object Database db4o as Storage Provider in Voldemort Abstract: In this article I will show you how easy it is to add support for Versant’s object database, db4o in project Voldemort, an Apache licensed distributed key-value storage system used at LinkedIn which is useful for certain high-scalability storage problems where simple functional partitioning is not sufficient (Note: Voldemort borrows heavily from Amazon’s Dynamo, if you’re interested in this technology all the available papers about Dynamo should be useful). Voldemort’s storage layer is completely mockable so development and unit testing can be done against a throw-away in-memory storage system without needing a real cluster or, as we will show next, even a real storage engine like db4o for simple testing. Note: All db4o related files that are part of this project are publicly available on ☞ GitHub This is an article contributed by German Viscuso from db4objects (a division of Versant Corporation).

The Mayflower Compact The Mayflower Compact is often cited as one of the foundations of the US Constitution. The story of its creation begins with the Pilgrims in England. Pilgrims were separatists from the Anglican Church in England. They were protestants who did not recognize the authority of the Anglican Church and formed their own Puritan church. Prostitution in ancient Rome Prostitution in Ancient Rome was legal and licensed. In Ancient Rome, even Roman men of the highest social status were free to engage prostitutes of either sex without incurring moral disapproval,[1] as long as they demonstrated self-control and moderation in the frequency and enjoyment of sex. At the same time, the prostitutes themselves were considered shameful: most were either slaves or former slaves, or if free by birth relegated to the infames, people utterly lacking in social standing and deprived of most protections accorded to citizens under Roman law, a status they shared with actors and gladiators, all of whom, however, exerted sexual allure.[2] Some large brothels in the 4th century, when Rome was becoming officially Christianized, seem to have been counted as tourist attractions and were possibly even state-owned.[3] The prostitutes[edit]
