Powhatan Beaty — Badass of the Week
Powhatan Beatty was a hardcore dude with a badass Action Hero name who was born into slavery in the heart of the Confederacy, escaped to freedom, received the Medal of Honor for heroic actions undertaken in a bayonet charge to liberate his hometown, survived thirteen Civil War engagements, and then went on to become a successful playwright and one of the first black actors to ever perform Shakespeare on stage in the United States.
Wow! What an impressive story,

Entire Roman city revealed without any digging


#science #archeology #history

For the first time, archaeologists have succeeded in mapping a complete Roman city, Falerii Novi in Italy, using advanced ground penetrating radar (GPR), allowing them to reveal astonishing details while it remains deep underground. The technology could revolutionise our understanding of ancient settlements.

The Fate of Elevators in the Post-Pandemic City - CityLab

The lengthiest of early elevator dilemmas, though, seems to have been whether should a man remove his hat when sharing a lift with a lady. On this topic the New York Times regularly published opinions, articles, and satire from the 1880s well into the 1920s. At stake was not only the practicality of hat-doffing in general but also the peculiar space of elevator itself: Was it more like a waiting room or a subway car? In the end, social arbiters decided the elevator was a means of conveyance, which meant heads could stay covered. (Still, as Don Draper once demonstrated, the matter might not have been fully settled by the 1960s.)
Hah!

#Newhere all the way from a smokey town called Arbroath.

Once I learn how to drive this thing I will be posting about #philosophy #Science #history #psychology #Logic . I'm no expert on any these subjects, still very much a beginner, although, I like to think of myself as an advanced beginner.

My main interest is #philosophy. Over the past few years I've been reading the history and evolution of #GreekPhilosophy - #ModernPhilosophy - especially #ImmanuelKant and #DavidHume - #ScottishPhilosophy and #TheScottishEnlightenment.

So these are the kind of subjects I will be posting about, along with some #Art #Music and a shit sense of #humour.

Thanks for having me 😀

Kleine Geschichte des Streaming | HNF Blog

Früher saßen wir am Radio oder vor dem Fernseher; ab den 1970er-Jahren entwickelte sich das Streaming. 1993 wurden Interviews online übertragen, 1994 waren die Rolling Stones über das Internet zu hören. Am 3. April 1995 führte die Firma Progressive Networks – später hieß sie RealNetworks – den RealAudio Player ein. 1997 folgte die Software RealVideo.
Oh Gott, der Real Player. Der war noch gruseliger als der Flash Player. Schon ganz verdrängt, dass es den auch mal gab

SABATON - In Flanders Fields (Official Lyric Video) - YouTube


A song which reminds us of the uncessity of wars.
A war rondeau written by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, a poet, physician, and soldier of Canada. He wrote the poem the day after performing the burial service of his close friend, Alexis Helmer who was killed during the Second Battle of Ypres in Flanders, Belgium. At the burial McCrae noted how quickly red poppy flowers grew around the graves of those who died at Ypres. The following day, after finishing his composition, McCrae handed his notepad to another member of his unit, Sergeant Major Cyril Allinson, who read the poem and described it as being “almost an exact description of the scene in front of us both.”

Sophisticated Soviet spy radio discovered buried in former forest in Germany | Live Science
The radio has been identified as a model R-394KM transmitter and receiver — code-named "Strizh," meaning "Swift" — that was manufactured in the Soviet Union in 1987. It was carried by agents into Western Europe shortly after that, and only a few years before the fall between 1989 and 1991 of the "Iron Curtain" of communism that divided Eastern and Western Europe.
