Bronze Age Lost Its Cutting Edge Before Climate Crisis - Truthdig - http://www.truthdig.com/report...
Bronze Age Lost Its Cutting Edge Before Climate Crisis - Truthdig
"A new study suggests that Bronze Age cultures everywhere collapsed not because of sustained drought or flooding, but because of technological change. The gradual spread of iron foundries and smithies, they say, undermined the economic strengths of those centres with monopolies on the production of, and trade in, copper and tin—the elements in the alloy bronze." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Ian Armit, an archaeologist at the University of Bradford in the UK, and colleagues base their argument on careful studies of ancient climate, using a combination of pollen data and other evidence, plus 2,000 precision-dated archaeological finds from Ireland, from between 1200 BC and 400 AD. This evidence tells a different, but equally familiar, story." - Maitani
I was not aware there had ever been a consensus that drought and flooding was /the/ cause. After "the sea peoples did it" went out of fashion, it seems to me they've gone Pete Smith on the problem and just mumble "it's probably a bit more complicated than that" :) - Eivind
Eivind, and these books on the Dark Ages you have read but I haven't yet? What do they say? - Maitani
Mumble schmumble, I *clearly* state that it is more complicated than that. As it usually is :) As archaeology is Muddy Guessing With Equipment, though, who can say in this case. - Pete
The short version would be "we just don't know, and we'll probably never find out," Maitani :) Possible contributing factors I remember: Climate/crop failure, migrations from other areas (most often Europe and Western Anatolia) with war/unrest/crop failure, innovations in warfare, domino effect taking down the trade network node by node, and some complex systems theory thingy that the last guy I listened to reluctantly mentioned by confessed he didn't know that well. - Eivind
How could technology diffusion, that would have to take place over a very long time, cause a simultaneous collapse over a very large area? It doesn't make sense. It takes a lot for people to leave their homes, their lives. They would adapt. What could possibly be so compelling about an iron culture that would cause agricultural people to just pick up and move? And we don't see a real... more... - Todd Hoff
Upon closer examination, the study doesn't seem to be about the Eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age collapse at all, Todd. It's about the later transition from the Bronze Age to the Iron Age in north western Europe, and Ireland in particular. Hard to tell from the article except that dates are way too late. The title of the paper is "Rapid climate change did not cause population collapse at the end of the European Bronze Age." - Eivind

Chutzpah: $3.1 Billion US "Aid" to Israel as it “Buys” $2.75 billion Worth of F35 Jets - The New Observer - http://newobserveronline.com/chutzpa...
"This is possibly one of the largest foreign military arms deals of recent times for the Lockheed Martin company which manufactures the F35 jets—possibly the most advanced fighter aircraft on earth—and the fact that the controlled media has blacked out the news of the “sale” to Israel, speaks volumes all by itself. About the only other place where one might be able to read of this incredible “deal” is in the Israeli news source YNet News. There, an article announced that: Israel bought 19 F-35s for $2.75 billion in 2010, with delivery scheduled between 2016 and 2018. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, visiting the United States last month, agreed a preliminary deal for 25 to 31 more planes subject to approval by the ministerial committee for defense purchases, sources said. According to YNet News, some in the Israeli government are even having second thoughts—not because of any other consideration apart from the fact that they will not make enough money out of the deal. According to Ynet... more... - daveeza from Bookmarklet

My nieces and nephew are sleeping upstairs and my brother and sister-in-law are at a movie. They don't get out much because, as my brother puts it, they have 4 kids and trust issues. Lol! Glad I'm here to give them a night out.

just a moment ago, our youngest tapped me on the shoulder. when i looked at her, she bared her slavering purple vampire fangs and waved a star-headed magic wand at me. "RRAAAAAWWWRRR!!!" she bellowed. "YOU ARE A FLYING PURPLE TOAD!! MUAHAHAHAHA!!!" and then she spun away into the front parlour.
she repeated this on our oldest, who was doing her Hanon piano exercises, but only got the response "GO AWAY." out of her. - Big Joe Silence

You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
"Speaking up or talking about hard issues like racial bias or diversity, or calling for attentiton to inherent problems, makes it possible I'll misspeak and say something quotable where I don't want it. It's instead much easier to sit quiet and let other people fight their battles - to watch big conflicts and flareups remotely, trivializing someone else's experience, as something that's not happening here. But even in the 'burbs, and in our corporate offices, there are issues. We may not see unarmed men shot 12 times and killed in our hallways, but there are opportunities to bring down or build up our peers daily, and most of us aren't doing much to aid their quiet struggles." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
