Graeme McRae32,843Graeme's All New Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see lots of new posts in your stream from this circle. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then you should reshare it to get more followers. It's a circle of people I started following in June, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest is other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.Do you promise me there won’t be any spammers in this circle?. . . No, I can’t make that promise for 2 reasons. First, one person’s spam is another person’s interesting post. A plumbing contractor who posts fascinating details of pipe fitting, each with a link to his company’s website might go either way. Second, a clever spammer will intersperse interesting posts with annoying spam -- ma2014-09-29 03:08:05165251336

Vũ Phá0So, someone asked me if when would i share a themed circle. I share circles of mixes of different people because i think it brings diversity of the circle.Well people, should i share a themed circle? Well if i would, it would be a different circle though, and it would be less frequent than my other two circles.. (this circle and the snowball one)Well circle Yulia seems kind since she did not remove any people this time, instead she added some!So everyone, this circle obviously contains people. They seem to be pretty normal perhaps.  Hahaha! :-P.Well they engage with people and they have great content in their profiles. Some in here are photographers, philosophers, humorists and everything nice! These guys are not only suggested by me but also suggested by others. So yea, i believe it's a pretty great mix... :-DNote: If ever you want to suggest someone to be included in the future editions of this circle, just tag them in the comments!2014-02-06 16:37:31501537

Ranulph Hidgen's World Map (1342)
"More or less elaborate diagram-maps, in the tradition of the early medieval world maps, were still being produced in the 14th and 15th centuries. One of them, in various versions, appears in copies of a compendious and immensely popular universal Latin history book, the Polychronicon, written in the mid-14th century by Ranulf Higden, a Benedictine monk at Chester (ca. 1299-1363). That he was English may be significant given the English associations of the group of world maps that include the Ebstorf and Hereford maps. As a testimony to its popularity, some 150 manuscript copies of the Polychronicon have survived and are illustrated by a world map, all having similar geographical content, although their individual form and shape vary considerably. On some the map is circular, on... more »

The Great Famine (1315 - 1317)
"The colder weather led to longer winters and wetter summers. In spring 1315, rain fell especially heavy and continued into summer while the temperatures remained cool. Crops failed and there was little straw or hay for animals. Scarcity led to a spike in food prices. Wheat prices rose by as much as 300% in parts of Europe making it impossible for many to buy. People began to starve to death. As people died, life expectancy dropped from 35 to 30 years."

Miasma theory
"In 19th-century England the miasma theory made sense to the sanitary reformers. Rapid industrialisation and urbanisation had created many poor, filthy and foul-smelling city neighbourhoods that tended to be the focal points of disease and epidemics. By improving the housing, sanitation and general cleanliness of these existing areas, levels of disease were seen to fall, an observation that lent weight to the theory."

Ostrogoth
"The Ostrogoths were the eastern tribe of the Goths (a Germanic people) who rose in power in the area north of the Black Sea. The designation, Ostrogoth, taken to mean `Eastern Goth’, actually means `Goths glorified by the rising sun’ and gave birth to the term Visigoth (interpreted to mean `Western Goth’) by the Roman writer Cassiodorus who coined the term in the 6th century."
"The Goths first appear in history living in the area around the Black Sea. They made constant incursions against the provinces of Rome and proved a resilient and perpetual nuisance to the Empire until the invasion of the Huns in 375 AD."
"A large portion of the populace (according to some sources, 200,000) fled the area to seek the protection of the Roman Empire under the emperor Valens (these people became known as the Visigoths)."

"A biography that reads like an adventure novel" - Sir Edward Pellew

#onthisday  in 1757, the British naval hero Admiral Sir Edward Pellew, 1st Viscount Exmouth, GCB, was born in Dover.

The model for several fictional heroes, form Dudley Pope’s Ramage and Alexander Kent’s Bolitho to the heroes of O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin series and, of course, the novels of C.S. Forester with Pellew acting as mentor of Horatio Hornblower while he served as midshipman aboard “Indefatigable” did indeed live a life that reads like an adventure novel all by itself... but read for yourself on: http://wunderkammertales.blogspot.de/2015/04/a-biography-that-reads-like-adventure.html 

Depicted below is George Hyde Chambers’ (1803 – 1840) epic imagination of “The Bombardment of Algiers, 1816“ from 1836, just one of Pellew's epic feats.

I think it is time for any leftist libertarian with social sensitivity to come to terms with what is really happening, and to rethink coherently and humanely, and, once and for all, split from the mainstream far right libertarian movement/party which is blatantly denying their extreme-right demagogic plans. If they don't split and denounce the demagogic cynical extreme-right positions, they are incurring in the same inhumane, extremist, anti-social and toxic ideology. The same could be said with British UKIP and other neo-liberal/libertarian far right parties elsewhere.
In a meme-post shared by the thought-provoking and always goodhearted +Diane Raucher, against the GOP's libertarian ally and so on, I've just inadvertently commented:
They just read Ayn Rand and the like (and in their core they follow the relentless will of Alan Greenspan of putting profit over human rights) and became fascinated by her psychopathic ruthless mentality. The problem is not only their inability to see that government represents the people and that the state IS the people, they consider the people a vague concept that they can overcome letting banksters and corporations take over. It's a wild way of thinking that for many seem attractive somehow, maybe just as a reaction to the political corruption we are aware of, and many libertarians are so with good intention, but in their illusory picture they forget that social bonds are based on a net of human dealings, and all that net is society as a whole. If that libertarian utopia were not a populist lie hiding a thirst for power, in such a libertarian place, they wouldn't be able to tackle social problems beyond their local capacity and face therefore the random outcomes of external forces and the power of gangs for instance, in a lawless environment that wouldn't protect the minimum principles of freedom, respect, justice and fairness.
And the other problem the well-intention libertarians don't see is that - even there is a dire need of reforming in depth a corrupted system and changing social practices that are toxic, in that we can agree - they are voting to a type of jumped-up "revolutionary" deranged and bigoted people, who claim they are going to reduce government, and once in power, it is to be seen how they would be going to implement their own demise of power, would they really reduce their own powers and as they say "give it to the people" (btw, the "people" they point to is a disturbing concept, for them it means more or less the big money and the power of intimidation, privatization of social services, from water to hospitals to firefighters). So, in the end, they would get precisely the thing they claim to abhor, they would get political corruption to the extreme.
We tend to think of it as a mere hypothesis, but libertarians are too close to what Reagan-Bush and Thatcher-Blair proposed and unleashed but in a much more aggressive way, so it would be more than possible for them and their madness to come to power, as the voting margin to get to power is really very narrow. The corporations/banksters/sold lawmakers and the war business would escalate without any regulatory system in place. We would go from bad to worse, from a corrupted system to corruption as the only system.
I totally fear that can happen.

World's mountain of electrical waste reaches new peak of 42m tonnes
The biggest per-capita tallies were in countries known for green awareness, such as Norway and Denmark, with Britain fifth and US ninth on the UN report’s list
"That’s the equivalent of 1.15m heavy trucks, forming a line 23,000km (14,300 miles) long"
"Less than one-sixth of all e-waste was properly recycled."
"Waste that could have been recovered and recycled was worth $52bn, including 300 tonnes of gold – equal to 11% of the world’s gold production in 2013."
"But it also included 2.2m tonnes of harmful lead compounds, as well as mercury, cadmium and chromium, and 4,400 tonnes of ozone-harming chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gases."

The Great Storm (November 24th, 1703)
The week-long hurricane that struck the south of England and the English Channel on November 24th, 1703, was beyond anything in living memory.

UK Storms: The Great Storm of 1703:
http://decodedpast.com/uk-storms-great-storm-1703/5706

"So, did the events of 1703 secure their place in history because they devastated the south-east and the capital, or did they really represent the country’s greatest storm?"
"It appears more likely that the former is true. In a ranking of such events, Dennis Wheeler rates the 1703 storm only fifth highest, exceeded by those of 1694, 1825, 1792 and, the largest of them all, 1987."

Basil II (AD 976–1025)
A Byzantine emperor.
There is at least something good to this mass murderer:
"During the first thirteen years of his reign Basil developed a hatred of the established aristocracy. His novel of 996 attempted to curb the influence of powerful individuals and their families by extending the statute of limitations on property purchases back to Caesar Augustus. This immediately bankrupted a number of powerful families, reducing them to the level of the peasants who they had previously exploited. "

An emperor of the 5th century AD.

Zeno (AD 474-491)
http://www.unrv.com/emperors/zeno.php

"Zeno was frequently unpopular during his reign, in part because of his Isaurian origins, though financial difficulties did not help. In part these were the consequences of Leo's disastrous Vandal expedition, but one of Zeno's solutions, selling offices systematically, did not make him popular with the aristocracy. Nor did it help that Zeno himself was impressed by astrologers and executed the silentarius Pelagius in 490 on the basis of a prediction that he would succeed as emperor. Despite several revolts and usurpations and severe foreign problems, he was able to remain in power for seventeen years and to die in peace."

"Zeno's interests in the West were minimal, in part because the other problems he faced were so severe. Initial raids by the Vandals were dealt with by negotiation. In 474 Zeno declared Nepos western Emperor in Italy, though by August 475 Nepos had been replaced and forced into Dalmatia. Zeno continued to recognize Nepos as emperor down to his death in 480, then accepted Odoacer as patricius."___

Tsunami Animation for the Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755
"On the morning of November 1, 1755, a great earthquake shook Portugal's capital city of Lisbon as worshipers filled churches and cathedrals for the All Saints' Day Mass. In seconds it left the city in ruins and in minutes those ruins were on fire. The earthquake probably killed about 30,000 people, though some estimates double that figure. Many of the survivors fled to the wharves and keys of Lisbon's port, but they would find no safety there. The first tsunami wave surged up the Tagus estuary about an hour after the earthquake, reached a maximum runup of 12 meters (40 feet), and killed another 1000 people. At least two more tsunami waves surged into the city, completing the earthquake's destruction."

At least two more tsunami waves surged into the city, completing the earthquake's destruction."

"At Portugal's coastal city of Lagos the tsunami was even larger, perhaps 30 m (100 ft). It went on to damage the ports of Cadiz in Spain, then Safi and Agadir in Morocco. The tsunami also spread north: it caused minor damage at Brest in Brittany, some flooding in England in the Scilly Islands and in Cornwall, and extensively flooded of the low-lying areas of the city of Cork, Ireland. As it spread out across the Atlantic, the tsunami first reached Madeira, where observers recorded a runup of 4 m (13 ft), then the Canary Islands, the Azores, and eventually the West Indies, where observers recorded runups of about a 1 m (3 ft) in Barbados, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Antigua (and questionable reports of large runup in the Virgin Islands). Though the tsunami must have hit Colonial America, no one recorded it there, though it was observed in Newfoundland."

"Our model of this tsunami assumes its source was a magnitude 8.5 earthquake on the Horseshoe Fault off of Cape Finisterre. Baptista, et al. (2011) explain how this fault matches the tsunami observations better than the several other proposed sources for the Great Lisbon Earthquake."___

Nearly four decades ago, he identified the spread of traits commonly ascribed to Generation Y today: shallowness, an inability to commit, and self-preoccupation fed by a “Society of the Spectacle” in which people behaved “as if their actions were being recorded and simultaneously transmitted to an unseen audience”.
“From one perspective,” Manne contends, “all patriarchal cultures may be considered institutionalised forms of narcissism.”
"Where an individual lacks empathy, you are likely to find other elements of narcissistic personality disorder. Where empathy is lacking in society at large, you are likely to find racism, sexism, homophobia, and a disregard for the weak and the poor. A meta-analysis of 72 studies conducted on American students over four decades revealed that the students of the 1990s and 2000s were significantly less empathetic than those of the 1970s and ’80s. That the drop in empathy coincides with the rise of neoliberalism, Manne demonstrates, is no coincidence at all."

Booth's Poverty Map of London (1899)
Gathering and management of data are an efficient tool to better understand social problems in order to address them.
(Wikipedia):
"Charles James Booth (1840 – 1916) was an English philanthropist and social researcher. He is most famed for his innovative work on documenting working class life in London at the end of the 19th century, work that along with that of Benjamin Seebohm Rowntree influenced government intervention against poverty in the early 20th century and led to the founding of Old Age pensions and free school meals for the poorest children."

Joseph Sturge (1793-1859): The Radical Businessman
"Joseph Sturge was a Quaker and a leading campaigner in the abolition movement. He visited the Caribbean several times and worked for emancipation with African-Caribbean and English Baptists. He was born in Gloucestershire the son of a farmer. After building up a successful business in Birmingham, with his brother Charles, he began to concentrate on the causes in which he believed."

A reproduction of a medieval map destroyed during the bombing of Hanover (Germany) in WW2.
The Ebstorf Map
"The Ebstorf Map from the 13th century is the largest medieval map hitherto known of. Although the original was lost during WW2 it is well known from a number of photos, lithographs and facsimiles. In 1951 -1953 three reproductions were created, one of which may be seen at the convent at Ebstorf, where it was found in 1830."
"According to new research carried out by the Historian Gudrun Pischke it holds 2345 entries – 1500 pieces of texts, 845 pictures showing buildings (500), rivers lakes, seas and other waterways, islands (60), people (45) and animals (60). To this should be added numerous religious motifs."

The dangerous streets of ancient Rome by Mary Beard
"By the first century BC, the time of Julius Caesar, ancient Rome was a city of a million inhabitants – rich and poor, slaves and ex-slaves, free and foreign. It was the world’s first multicultural metropolis, complete with slums, multiple-occupancy tenements and sink estates – all of which we tend to forget when we concentrate on its great colonnades and plazas. So what was backstreet Rome – the real city – like after the lights went out?"
"Outside the splendid civic centre, Rome was a place of narrow alleyways, a labyrinth of lanes and passageways. There was no street lighting, nowhere to throw your excrement and no police force."

Are we ready for the next volcanic catastrophe?
"Should the European harvest fail, so the thinking goes, we can always buy our food from elsewhere. The very interconnectedness of world markets may, however, make things worse – the collapse of food production across Europe, parts of North America and perhaps elsewhere, could result in global shortages which in turn would drive a dramatic rise in the cost of food commodities. At the same time, the intense worldwide competition for food supplies, scarce as a consequence of the harvest failures, could drastically reduce the range of products available in the UK, interfere with supply and distribution, and bring about a collapse of the supermarkets’ ultra-sensitive, time-critical, stock-control systems, leaving their shelves increasingly depleted.

"No volcano erupts without warning signs, caused by rising magma triggering earthquake swarms and inflating the ground surface. The problem is that out of our world’s 1,300 or more active and potentially active volcanoes, we monitor only a few hundred."___

Frames per second (fps) and motion blur (click on the link above to test them)
"Motion blur is a natural effect when you film the world in discrete time intervals. When a film is recorded at 25 frames per second, each frame has an exposure time of up to 40 milliseconds (1/25 seconds). All the changes in the scene over that entire 40 milliseconds will blend into the final frame. Without motion blur, animation will appear to jump and will not look fluid."
When the frame rate of a movie is too low, your mind will no longer be convinced that the contents of the movie are continuous, and the movie will appear to jump (also called strobing).

Cloacina

A Roman goddess of the sewers, who was associated with the goddess of love, Venus. The Romans understood her not as a goddess of filth and dirt, but as a goddess of cleanliness and purification instead.

A small circular shrine with two draped female statues (dedicated to Venus and Cloacina) was set up in the Roman forum.

Ranulph Hidgen's World Map (1342)
"More or less elaborate diagram-maps, in the tradition of the early medieval world maps, were still being produced in the 14th and 15th centuries. One of them, in various versions, appears in copies of a compendious and immensely popular universal Latin history book, the Polychronicon, written in the mid-14th century by Ranulf Higden, a Benedictine monk at Chester (ca. 1299-1363). That he was English may be significant given the English associations of the group of world maps that include the Ebstorf and Hereford maps.

On some the map is circular, on some a pointed oval (vesica piscis [fish bladder] or mandorla type), and on some it is a rounded oval. The circular Higden maps are thought to be simplifications of the earlier oval maps, and they certainly appear in later manuscripts. The cities of Rome and Jerusalem are always prominent, but are rarely placed in the center of the map."
"Higden uses red lines to separate specified geographic areas. The few mountains that are displayed are colored green like the oceans. The water areas are shown in green (except for the Red Sea shown in red). Islands are shown as blocks of text throughout the sea or ocean."___

"In 768, the Pictish King Kenneth was defeated by Aed Find of Dalriada at Fortrui which was near Perth, showing that the Scots were driving east again. But at the turn of the century King Constantine, who was descended from a Pictish princess and a king of Dalriada, held sway over both areas."
"At this time, the Vikings from Scandinavia were making their presence felt, particularly in the west - the land of Dalriada. In 839, a combined force of Picts and Scots were defeated by the Vikings in a battle in Fortrui, with many of the royal household killed."___

The monks endured, however, and legends tell that in 993 AD, the Viking Olav Trygvasson, who later became the king of Norway and introduced Christianity to that country, was baptized by a hermit on Skellig Michael. The site was finally abandoned sometime in the 13th century and many of the monks moved to the monastery of Ballinskelligs on the mainland."___

Saint Catherine of Siena (1347 - 1380), a Dominican - and sometimes hovering - nun and theologian who worked to bring the pope Gregory XI back to Rome from France, was so pious that she refused to eat food. Her diet consisted of drinking leper's pus in water. She also levitated and received stigmata.

The Execution of Perkin Warbeck (1499)

"A rising in Cornwall against the tax increases in June 1497 encouraged Warbeck to expect support there. On September 12th he arrived near Land's End with just 120 men in two ships. This final invasion was by far the most successful; his force was several thousand strong by the time it reached Exeter. His supporters, however, were unarmed and when Exeter resisted, Warbeck was forced to move on. When the King's army reached the rebels Warbeck realised there was no hope and fled for the coast. He took refuge in Beaulieu Abbey and then surrendered."
"In his confession to Henry at Taunton on October 5th, 1497, Warbeck admitted that he was the son of a bourgeois of Tournai."___

I've seen many cases of people (usually conservatives) who the more obtrusive and intrusive anti virus software they install, the more viruses they get, besides making their computers unbearable to use and slower than a snail after lunch.
Not to mention bloatware and crapware and other "user-friendly" nonsense, computers from brands come packed to the rim with totally useless, messy, intrusive and ever notifying crap.
I have installed a very old antivirus that still gets antivirus database updates, it runs smoothly, it's not intrusive nor obtrusive, it keeps eating little ram and it's enough if you are a bit careful not to download and install suspicious and very... more »

I have installed a very old antivirus that still gets antivirus database updates, it runs smoothly, it's not intrusive nor obtrusive, it keeps eating little ram and it's enough if you are a bit careful not to download and install suspicious and very unreliable files.
Don't get fooled by some trendy anti-virus that claim to use less computer resources. Avast, for instance, runs few processes, so it looks light, but it activates so many services that the amount of memory they use skyrockets making an average computer so slow that better not to have avast and an old potato of computer.
I miss simplicity. Effectiveness and simplicity.

Constantinople
I don't know anything about the origin of this picture taken from the internets' guts, some say it's a medieval illustrated map, but I guess it's a 16th century one, or maybe even later.

Assyrian construction of canals and use of the Archimedes screw-pump 500 years before its inventor was born.
Assyrian Agricultural Technology
"Assyria is famous primarily for its military innovations. Siege warfare, cavalry, and the integration and methodical organization of warfare were all advanced considerably by the Assyrian state in its insatiable desire to conquer its neighbors. What Assyria is not well known for are its civil innovations. Yet, Assyrian armies were sacking foreign cities, the Assyrian homeland was being enriched with various things stolen and looted from other countries. The Assyrians may not have been great innovators, but they were great derivators, taking inventions from various parts of the world and adapting them to their own needs."

19th century American astronomer, historian, oceanographer, meteorologist, and cartographer.
Matthew Maury (1806 - 1873)
He standardized the way of taking sea surface's temperature.
"In 1839 Maury broke his leg in a stagecoach accident and was forced to give up his days at sea. He then began to devote his time to the study of navigation, meteorology, winds, and currents. His hard work paid off when he was appointed the superintendent of the Navy's Depot of Charts and Instruments in 1842. Two years later the department was renamed the United States Naval Observatory. Maury's primary duties were to care for the U.S. Navy's chronometers, charts, and other navigation equipment. He had access to thousands of ships' logs and charts from all over the world. He used this material to compile and interpret data about winds and currents."

Empress Wu Zetian (r. AD 690 - 705)
"Even though according to the Confucian beliefs having a woman rule would be as unnatural as having a "hen crow like a rooster at daybreak," during the most glorious years of the Tang dynasty a woman did rule, and ruled successfully. She was Wu Zetian, the only female in Chinese history to rule as emperor."
"She managed to eliminate Kao Tsung's wife, Empress Wang, by accusing her of killing Wu's newborn daughter. Kao Tsung believed Wu, and replaced Empress Wang to marry the up and coming Wu Zetian."
"Within five years of their marriage, Emperor Kao Tsung suffered a crippling stroke. The Empress Wu took over the administrative duties of the court, a position equal to the emperor. She created a secret police force to spy on her opposition, and cruelly jailed or killed anyone who stood in her way, including the... more »

With the death of Emperor Kao Tsung, Wu managed to outflank her eldest sons and moved her youngest, and much weaker son, into power. She in effect ruled, telling him what to do."
"In 690, Wu's youngest son removed himself from office, and Wu Zetian was declared emperor of China."___

The Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus (1774)
This 18th century book by anatomist William Hunter, and illustrated by Jan van Riemsdyk, is a big book, both in scientific achievement and in size (26X19 inches), which enabled the 34 drawings it contains to be almost actual size, and very accurate.

"An eminent anatomist and obstetrician, Hunter confined himself to a specific topic (late pregnancy) and "subject" (the dissection of a woman who died near the end of term). Illustrations that represent only "what was actually seen," Hunter argued, will carry "the mark of truth" and be "almost as infallible as the object itself."

Locusta of Gaul, Roman “Herbalist” and Professional Poisoner 
Locusta was born into the first century AD. in one of the outer provinces of Rome called Gaul , an area we now know as France . In her early years in the countryside, it would appear that Locusta learned a great deal about herbal lore and the plants around her. When she arrived in Rome , she learned that the people around her were ambitious and greedy. There were many people in Rome in those days who wanted to hurry along the deaths of their rivals or their rich relatives, but it had to look like the death was from natural causes. Locusta provided them with the means to accomplish their goals - she became a professional poisoner.

The Ptolemaic pharaoh of the Rosetta Stone
Ptolemy V Epiphanes (204 - 181 BC) . The Fifth King of Egypt's Ptolemaic Period.
"Ptolemy V Epiphanes ("manifest"), the fifth king of Egypt Ptolemaic Period began life precariously. His father, Ptolemy IV Philopator was a weak king who died at the relatively young age of 41, after a dissolute life shrouded by controlling advisers. After his mother, Arsinoe III's death at the hands of his father's advisers, Sosibius and Agathocles, these same people took custody of the child, who was then only five years old. However, when the Alexandria mob found out about the murder of his mother, they lynched Agathocles (Sosibius disappears from the record at about the time of his accession to the throne) in about October of 203 BC, leaving him to be raised by one ambitious adviser after another. This caused near anarchy, particularly... more »

This caused near anarchy, particularly in Upper Egypt. In fact, what Ptolemy V inherited from his father was considerable trouble."

Why Hen Acts Like Rooster
"Hens that strut like a rooster not only act out like the aggressive male chicken, but also begin to take on all the flashy physical characteristics of the rooster. The hen will stop laying eggs. The characteristics of the cock's comb—the spiky red headdress of the rooster—often begin to show up in the smaller hen's comb on top of the would-be rooster."

The case, in 1474, of the Rooster of Basel, who was solemnly burned at the stake for "the heinous and unnatural crime of laying an egg":
"In 1474 a rooster living in the city of Basel, Switzerland committed one of the most shocking and heinous crimes in Medieval Swiss history; it laid an egg.  A rooster laying eggs is not only strange enough, but they were eggs that lacked a yoke."

"To settle the matter, the rooster was put on trial to decide its fate. The trial included a prosecutor, defense attorney, and judge. The prosecutor argued that the rooster was no ordinary cock, but a minion of Satan."
