Wild African Elephants on Verge of Extinction
The African elephant population dropped by 80,000 from 2006 to 2013, largely because of poaching, and will be extinct in just a few decades unless action is taken!

A remarkable rare 10,000 year old Stone Tool Site found in Suburban Seattle!

#archaeology #anthropology #stoneage #seattle #washington 
Archaeologists surveying the waterways of suburban Seattle have made a discovery that's likely the first of its kind in the region — an ancient tool-making site dating back more than 10000 years. The find includes thousands of stone flakes, an array of bifaces, scrapers, and hammerstones, ...

Just an article I thought was important to share, because a large amount of people don't know that most jails/prisons do not medicate inmates who are addicts and will be withdrawing while in custody! I think this is rather cruel and messed up, not to mention just compounding the problem of addiction, violence, and smuggling into jails. A dose of methadone costs the state $1.

Here is more info on methadone maintenance, know what's myth and what's fact: http://www.cdc.gov/idu/facts/MethadoneFin.pdf

Today, Gordon Goodwin is in federal prison in Atlanta. Not too many years ago, he was a student at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, on track for law school. He enjoyed tennis and mountain biking. Today, his future looks bleak—failed by prison drug treatment policies that even the Bureau of Prisons admits don’t work, policies...

+Ken Bruckman I agree. More than jails, I was really trying to emphasize the desperate need for a better addiction/alcoholic care system in the US. Not to even mention the medical system! Having had to personally deal with the addiction treatment system, with every option it offers, I can say for sure that its doing an incredible disservice to the addicts & the communities/citizens. It's difficult to think of a case where the harm done didn't cancel out the good, honestly.

The Absolute BEST video about Archery to date

Demonstrates how real historical archery was actually done, why everything we know about archery from Hollywood is wrong, and showcases Lars Andersen's unbelievable skills! Must watch.

+Teo Lobot Yeah, the info doesn't prove correct and it seems like he's taking credit for an awwful lot, but its still a cool video and gives archery more exposure.

Every few days I think I'm going to post a series titled Historyporn, a collection of the most interesting Historical photographs ever taken (and usually seldom seen). This one is Iran in 1979, days after the Revolution, where women protested the forced hijab rule/law. It's a great contrast of modern times and example of how hate, extremism, prejudice, and violence affects our lives.

+Bradley D. Thornton I really don't understand why this is an argument or disagreement. Your previous comment isn't prefaced with a dedication to the Iranian students of the time. Fluctuating between pronouns and specific nouns (Erratically using "you" and "the students") is confusing and combining verb tenses (speaking about a past event as if its in the present, and vice versa) is even more so. Plus, adding "careful what you wish for" sounds like it's aimed at me because you started the comment by addressing me by name, defining the audience as me!

Instead of blaming me for "misconstruing" your comment, maybe consider the possibility you yourself might have played a role.

No our wishes can't change what happened, but it's still important. Intention and belief shapes our present and our future, thus also affecting our past. It's nothing to be discounted.

Ever wondered what our sky would like if we had a different star instead of the sun?

This visualization shows how the sunset could look like to a human observer if our Sun was replaced by some of the other stars in our galaxy with different sizes and magnitudes, namely Barnard’s Star, Gliese 581, Tau Ceti, Kepler-23, Alpha Centauri A, Procyon, Sirius, Pollux, Arcturus and Aldebaran.
It is just a concept, as liquid water and the Earth as we know it could not exist in the vicinity of the most stars in this graphic. Visualizations are based on the absolute brightness, spectral class and the radius of each star.       ------ by Martin Vargic

Introduction
Adrienne Valhalla is a Pagan following Northern European traditions, particularly Norse Heathenism. I am a re-constructionist as well, hoping to learn from the past  and apply those principles to the present. The word "Pagan" usually conjures ideas of "Wicca" in some people's minds...To be clear, I do not identify as Wiccan, but that is a separate debate entirely. I am going to college for my doctorates degree in Archaeology, focusing on Celtic peoples from the pre-Roman period and from the Arthurian period (5th-6th century AD). I love to learn about new cultures and societies. Someday I hope to--no, I WILL, travel the world.

Anti-Whaling activist, tree-hugger, and all around-environmental activist in as many ways possible.

Interests: Dr Who, Firefly, Serenity, Buffy (yes,I know, Joss Whedon-nerd right here), Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Torchwood, Monty Python, Harry Potter (Alan Rickman as Snape makes it all worth it), Legend of the Seeker (the books beat the TV series hands down IMHO), BBC Sherlock! BBC Robin Hood, The Tudors, The Young Turks (shout out to the liberal, progressive voice in online media www.tytnetwork.com / TYT Youtube Channel), Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time, Rome (a masterpiece), Bones, Fringe, Ghost Adventures (aka Ghost Bros!), almost anything on the [past] History channel (nothing but alien shows now--they did NOT build the damn pyramids!), and uh Key and Peele are favorites just to name a slight few...

I am here to meet new people, both different and like-minded. Really, I don't bite.

Bragging rights
I have navigated this scary world through my teens and came out alive and mostly in tact....I think that's a big accomplishment in this world today. I am working on getting better at meeting and talking to new people so you should drop me a line! OH and I have a nice sword collection that I shamelessly brag about. OH and my DIY bow and arrows. No big deal ;-)
