    Not sure, but during much of the time frame mentioned in the article, the Phoenicians were active.

     well. we are on google and it turns out,  Phoenicians from 1500 BC[1]–539 BC – this would be the rome ending them and the start of their civ rise.

     Indeed it’s Google.In 197 BC, Phoenicia along with Syria reverted to the Seleucids. The region became increasingly Hellenized, although Tyre became autonomous in 126 BC, followed by Sidon in 111. Syria, including Phoenicia, was seized and ruled by king Tigranes the Great of Armenia from 82 until 69 BC, when he was defeated by Lucullus. In 65 BC, Pompey finally incorporated the territory as part of the Roman province of Syria. Phoenicia became a separate province ca. 200 AD.
  • My original point was that people mentioned in your article over lapped the same time period as the Phoenicians and indeed they do. The Estrucans for example, Did you read the article you posted????

Trump vs Merkel: Free World Leader in Play

Germany is the liberal leader in Europe in 2017, while America is now legislating as Nazi Germany did.
Trump did not shake her hand and he did not even acknowledge the requests that he do so.
He behaved as a scolded sulky school boy.
Imagine if Clinton was President and what that world would have, could have, should have,  looked like.
President Trump meets Chancellor Merkel for the first time – BBC News
President Trump meets Chancellor Merkel for the first time - BBC News

“The Leader of the Free World Meets Donald Trump: Angela Merkel, whether she wants the job or not, is the West’s last, best hope.”

Photo

“Their styles reflect their vastly different backgrounds. Merkel, Germany’s first and only female chancellor, was raised by a pastor in communist East Germany, where she earned a doctorate in physical chemistry. Although she is the longest-serving and most powerful leader in Europe, she is unfailingly modest, competent and consensus-oriented. Trump’s all-about-me mentality, Queens upbringing and brash, tabloid-and-reality-TV personality couldn’t be more different.”
Photo
“One indicator of a real breakthrough between Trump and Merkel would be a recognition that he is hearing out her concerns about Putin. Merkel is the wisest leader now in office in assessing the danger from Russia, and the most experienced in dealing with Putin himself. She’ll likely urge him to cool his enthusiasm for rapprochement with Moscow—will he listen?

Photo

The Russia question will play out over many months. In the meantime, those who care about Western values can continue to look to Merkel, but now with a small dose of optimism. For while this week’s election in the Netherlands may not be a permanent setback for Europe’s neo-nationalists, it should give comfort to those who worried that Trump’s victory in America would be contagious and that continental Europe was sure to catch the disease.”

Stress on the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest reef structure, supporting a huge array of marine life off the coast of Queensland, Australia. The reef’s designation as a marine park helps protect it from some human pressures, such as local water pollution and overfishing. But park protection cannot prevent the heating of ocean water—the main stressor on this coral system and the reason for its bleaching.

The bright colors (and food source) of healthy coral come from the microscopic algae that live inside coral tissues. But the symbiotic relationship is compromised when the water gets too hot. Warm temperatures drive out the algae, and corals turn a pale white—the so-called bleaching that leaves corals vulnerable to disease and death. Fortunately, scientists have ways to monitor the reef. And they can do so remotely.

The map above, based on data from NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch, shows areas with varying levels of heat stress. The amount of heat stress is an indicator of bleaching and its potential intensity. This map shows the maximum stress reached during the seven-day period from February 21-27, 2017. Tan indicates a bleaching watch, meaning that the area may have been exposed to heat stress. Orange indicates a bleaching warning, meaning that bleaching is possible. Red indicates a bleaching alert level 1 (bleaching is likely), and dark red indicates alert level 2 (mortality is likely).

Coral Reef Watch produces maps like this for ocean areas around the world. The level of stress is based on measurements of sea surface temperature, which is derived from multiple satellites including Suomi NPP. But to figure out when conditions are deviating from normal, scientists first had to define normal. Defining this “climatology” is where the Pleiades supercomputer at NASA’s Ames Research Center contributed.

As the map shows, many areas in late February were far from normal; some level of heat stress was present almost everywhere in the waters east of Australia. According to Mark Eakin, coordinator of Coral Reef Watch, the current bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef is part of a global bleaching event that started in June 2014 and has been ongoing. It is the third global coral bleaching event since the 1980s.

“Unlike past global bleaching events (in 1998 and 2010) that lasted less than twelve months, this event is in its 33rd month and shows no sign of stopping,” Eakin said. “It has been the longest, most widespread, and most damaging coral bleaching event ever recorded.”

The reef appears small on this map, and even smaller on global maps. But providing data only over reefs would exclude the bigger picture. “The conditions in surrounding ocean waters is very informative when trying to understand what is and may soon be happening on reefs,” Eakin said.

Scientists are making progress in gaining that understanding thanks to a combination of this satellite-derived information and some recent aerial and underwater surveys of the Great Barrier Reef. In new findings published in Nature on March 15, 2017, researchers showed that severe heat stress and bleaching spanned the northern 1,000 kilometers of the Great Barrier Reef during the severe bleaching of 2016. In contrast, earlier events in 1998 and 2002 severely bleached the reef farther south. At one time or another, bleaching has affected almost the entire span of the reef.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies noted in a statement about the new study: “Coral bleaching events should no longer be thought of as individual disturbances to reefs, but as recurring events that threaten the viability of coral reefs globally.”

“Populism can be stopped, says jubilant Dutch GreenLeft leader: Jesse ‘the Jessiah’ Klaver celebrates Netherlands poll wins with pro-refugee message before possible coalition deal”

“GreenLeft was the big winner in Wednesday’s poll, leaping from four MPs to 14 in the 150-seat parliament, topping the bill in Amsterdam and overtaking the stricken social democratic PvdA to become the largest party of the left nationally.

It is far too early to say whether Jesse Klaver’s GreenLeft will be a party of government for the first time in its history. But for the 30-year-old leader of a political party, the Netherlands’ youngest ever, it was not a bad election.

As traditional left and centre-left parties suffer across Europe in countries including Italy, France and Britain, the Dutch GreenLeft, formed 25 years ago by a merger of communists, pacifists, evangelicals and radicals, is growing fast.

A large part of its success is down to Klaver, a boyish figure in jeans, open-necked shirt and rolled-up sleeves who was first elected as an MP at the age of 24 and took over the leadership of GreenLeft in May 2015. Since then, under the “Jessiah”, as he is nicknamed, the party has gained 7,000 new members, nearly half of them under 30.

Something of a throwback to classic 1970s Dutch ideals of openness and radicalism, Klaver has a Moroccan father and a mother of Indonesian descent. The far-right populism of Geert Wilders, rather than Muslim immigration, is the real threat to Dutch culture and traditions, he has repeatedly said.

Properly leftwing parties in Europe had to fight the rise of the far right by standing up for their ideals, he said on Wednesday.

“What I would say to all my leftwing friends in Europe: don’t try to fake the populace,” he said. “Stand for your principles. Be straight. Be pro-refugee. Be pro-European. We’re gaining momentum in the polls. You can stop populism.””

Vancouver Two 2017

Today my Mom tagged along on my medical appointments; so some paperwork sorted out.

I celebrated a weight loss by treating for lunch at Fatburger’s.

The first stop at the Bentall Complex revealed some changes, the car washing service and handicap parking have been replaced with an electric car sharing service.

So had to park on 9 instead of the ground level. It feels insulting to have to pay to drive around to find a space and driving out again.

At the second stop, I got metre street parking right in front. woot woot.

Then, it was the hell outta dodge and away from the downtown core.

Soon to be taxis and cyclists only, as cars continue to be taxed at the pump and on property at home garage. Meanwhile, Vancouver City is competing with private business in offering ride sharing cycles.

 

And taking away car paid for roads for bike lanes, which pay no insurance or license fees. Often they fail to understand road violation ticket apply and they rarely get to ride away from motor vehicle accidents that they cause by failing to obey the rules of the road.

The known, the one who takes up more of the road rules, since most collisions are dead bikers evading legal responsibility and cars at blame.

The constant rain made driving conditions with lesser visibility and I was very glad that I noticed one of the tires on my vehicle was low and I stopped at a station in Surrey to re pressurize the winter tire, which can now be checked when the seasonals go on shortly.

I am not sure why I was surprised there was a coin slot on the tire air machine, the car wash vacuums had have it.

Anyway, the machine was crappy and did not hold a seal, but I got it from only 15 ppsi to at least 33, the gauge was not what one could call accurate.

I joked to my Mom that I felt butch again.

 

I drove the illegally tolled port mann crossing both ways.

The Patullo needs to be addressed and they need to ban the commercial trucks that all these other roads were built for, eh.

 

after the weeks of snow and salt, now rain rain rain

 

there are many potholes big enough to break axles

 

and the change in temperature, affects pressure systems

even those contained in rubber tires

An Almost Day Out

An early day today, up at 6 am to attend at Royal Colombian; my Dad had a procedure.

We – my Mom and I – tried to get breakfast at the cafeteria and despite having warming bins of breakfast foods, they would not serve for 15 more minutes – by which time that food would be inedible.

Hospital food is insult enough without having to also wait for it.

headed back to the elevator where a Creepy Old White Man left the elevator and walked to stop right in front of me. When I tried to side step him, he moved to block me.

I stopped and he shifted back and forth actually blocking me, so I side stepped agressively around him and for full measure loudly said “Asshole.”

I had no idea what fucked up high school antic he was doing, the only explaination was trying to make me shift so my boobs would move, given where his geezer eyes were looking. Harmless old men, seriously, ever see Benny Hill?

Anyway, we went back to the 3rd floor and then home for a couple of hours.

so a rare 2 outing day – my Mom and I headed back so she could have the at home training session and when we pulled into the hospital lot some other White Man had parked across both the handicapped space – and he had no decal – which is not the point – 2 spaces.

He musta sensed the hole my eyes were burning in his head, because he got in his car and moved out of the spaces. so I could park close for my Mom to walk in and both Parents to walk out.

We got to the floor and my Mom had her session and I sat in the family room, with my pink hoodie over my face.

My Dad got released sooner than we expected and we headed to the elevator.

At one point, a staff garbed person complained about the elevators being slow (only 4 floors) and I said this was way better than St. Paul’s Downtown. A short discussion of the building being historic or a tear-down and it being the only walk in clinic for the downtown homeless.

out of the building, I saw a vehicle illegally parked at the sidewalk to the emergency entrance who was also directly blocking my vehicle in the first handicap stall #200.

A Hospital Staffer took delivery of three pizzas and a cardboard box and walked by me to enter the hospital.

I stared pointed at yet another Old White Guy who was under the delusion that pizza delivery falls under the use of hazard lights as if that prevents the car from being one.

I opened the back of my vehicle so I could put my Mom’s walker in and when I finished, that asshole was just sitting in his car. I gave him a don’t make me knock on your window look and he drove off before I got into my vehicle. Seriously what is wrong with people?

after the hospital, it was to Ikea for lunch – it has it’s own maze of elevators and escalators designed to deliver one deeper into the 2 floor concrete box store.

The cafeteria was full and it was the first day of spring break, so there was children, half sized humans that are twice as loud with balloon animals or balloon hats.

Three orders of meatball special with gravy – but one beef, one chicken and one vegetarian.

The meat ones were overcrisp on the outside and dry inside, the first sub-par meal at Ikea.

The Daim cake slice that we three shared was a nice taste and a third of a portion ample enough.

Then, down the foggy freeway – and I became disoriented in the 152 turn off a sort of Golden Pond moment where I couldn’t place where I was – and it was driving. so a deep breath and I was on 152, but in the wrong lane.

So rather than risk a traffic thing, I continued on a couple more blocks and did a turn down some side streets and deked* through the Guildford library/community centre to get back to course.

Healthcare, can’t pursuit happiness without it and it shouldn’t cost your house, eh .

Globe editorial: In B.C., political fundraising reform is coming! Eventually. Maybe: Heading into an election in May in a dead heat with the NDP, Liberal Premier Christy Clark has suddenly developed an interest in reforming British Columbia’s notorious political fundraising laws. It’s an unconvincing conversion.

    I’m not sure what you’re ranting about, but the proposal from the NDP includes blocking donations from unions as well as corporations. That is a very good thing for private citizens no matter who is in power.

“Affordable Care Act revision would reduce insured numbers by 24 million, CBO projects”

“The analysis, released late Monday afternoon by the Congressional Budget Office, predicts that 24 million fewer people would have coverage a decade from now than if the Affordable Care Act remains intact, nearly doubling the share of Americans who are uninsured from 10 percent to 19 percent. The office projects the number of uninsured people would jump 14 million after the first year

But the GOP legislation, which has been speeding through House committees since it was introduced a week ago, would lower the deficit by $337 billion during that time, primarily by lessening spending on Medicaid and government aid for people buying health plans on their own.

The report predicted that premiums would be 15 percent to 20 percent higher in the first year compared with those under the Affordable Care Act but 10 percent lower on average after 2026. By and large, older Americans would pay “substantially” more and younger Americans less.

The 37-page report provides the most tangible evidence to date of the human and fiscal impact of the House GOP’s American Health Care Act. It also undermines President Trump’s pledge that no Americans would lose coverage under a Republican remake of the Affordable Care Act, which was enacted by a Democratic Congress in 2010.”

Extreme Wrong Wingers are nasty: “Why does everyone keep making Nazi comparisons?”

“The answer, according to America’s Anti-Defamation League (ADL), is simply that it is the “most available historical event illustrating right versus wrong.”

When an argument descends to such fundamentals, the comparison inevitably turns up.”
