Swithun Swithun (or Swithin, Old English: Swīþhūn; died c. 862) was an Anglo-Saxon bishop of Winchester and subsequently patron saint of Winchester Cathedral. His historical importance as bishop is overshadowed by his reputation for posthumous miracle-working. According to tradition, the weather on his feast day (15 July) will continue for forty days. The precise meaning and origin of Swithin's name is unknown, but it is largely considered to mean 'Pig Man'.[1] Another possible meaning is "strong". Recorded life[edit] Swithun was Bishop of Winchester from his consecration in October 852 or October 853 until his death on 2 July sometime between 862 and 865.[2] However, he is scarcely mentioned in any document of his own time. More than a hundred years later, when Dunstan and Æthelwold of Winchester were inaugurating their church reform, Swithun was adopted as patron of the restored church at Winchester, formerly dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Paul.

A rose by any other name....would be known to Shakespeare The playwright not only spent time in the fields around his Stratford-upon-Avon home, she said, but also shows evidence of studying the latest botanical texts in his spare time in London. Margaret Willes, a writer who specialises in gardens, has now identified 49 of the specific flowers, vegetables, fruit and herbs used in Shakespeare’s plays, pointing out the in-depth knowledge he must have had. Saying she had been “deeply impressed” at level of understanding of the natural world in the plays, she argued the frequent references to plants in the Bard’s works are not “mere literary devices”, but take the reader “to the very heart of social life in Elizabethan and Jacobean England”. Her new book, A Shakespearean Botanical, uses documents held in Oxford University’s Bodleian Library to cross reference each mention of a plant in the plays and two poems, The Rape of Lucrece and Venus and Adonis, with what Shakespeare’s contemporaries would have known about plants. The specimens include: Apple:

X-ray reveals Elizabethan magician John Dee's hidden halo of skulls A famous painting of Elizabethan court philosopher, mathematician and alchemist John Dee (1527-1609) has been revealed to contain secrets, just like its subject. An X-ray analysis of the work has revealed that Dee, performing an experiment for Queen Elizabeth I, was originally depicted surrounded by a halo of skulls. The painting, on display as part of a free exhibition on the life of Dee at the Royal College of Physicians in London, does not have an exact date. Why the skulls were removed from this particular image is not known, although The Guardian posits that they were too weird an addition to the image, which is otherwise realistic. "Glindoni had to make it look like what we now see, which is august and serious, from what it was, which was occult and spooky," said Katie Birkwood, the exhibition's curator. Dee is one of history's most fascinating figures. The exhibition intends to present artefacts about all aspects of Dee's life.

New universities Post-1992 universities that trace their roots to former polytechnics[edit] In addition, the New University of Ulster absorbed Ulster Polytechnic (at Jordanstown) in 1984. Post-1992 universities that are not former polytechnics[edit] Both categories of university award academic degrees, having received university status when the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 came into effect or in the years thereafter, although some of the newest universities may not have the power to award research degrees - the UK Government having separated research degrees from university title criteria. References[edit] See also[edit] Sir Francis Bacon While Renaissance men were rapidly expanding all the frontiers of knowledge—in geography, philosophy, medicine and astronomy—Sir Francis Bacon was devising a deductive system for empirical research which has earned him the title "the Father of Modern Science." Most scientists today still owe him a debt of gratitude. They repay this debt by giving his capsule biography in almost every text for high-school or college-level courses in most branches of science. Bacon did not marry until the late age of forty-eight, and contemporary figures relate that he was by preference homosexual. . . . the favour he had with the beloved Marquis of Buckingham emboldened him, as I learned in discourse from a gentleman of his bedchamber, who told me he was sure his lord should never fall as long as the said Marquis continued in favour. Sir Francis Bacon's relationships—like those of his King—closely followed the pattern of patron/favourite. That Bloody Percy Rapid Rise—and Fall Pithy and Witty What is truth?

Researchers discover what was located on top of the Great Pyramid | Paranormal (Before It's News) The investigations of renowned Spanish architect Miguel Pérez-Sánchez that lasted over ten years, allowed him to rebuild via computer models and with great accuracy, the pyramid of Cheops and determine that it was “crowned” by a sphere of 2 meters in diameter. Pérez Sánchez announced his discovery in a publication of the book containing his doctoral thesis where he explained that “the pyramid of Cheops, according to analysis, demonstrates that it was an encyclopedia of knowledge.” The Great Pyramid is the most important building of the Old Kingdom, it is one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, the only one that remains standing today. Devoid of its original coating blocks of white limestone, the great Pyramid lacks its summit which gave the pyramid another 9 meters in height. Now, researchers know the exact shape of the object that was placed on top of the pyramid. Source: ufothetruthisoutthere
