    Perseverance is The blood , sweat and tears of the persecuted for My names sake but be reassured that all of Heaven is with you in all you do and say by My spirit and for My glory . 1 Corinthians 9:24 24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

  • Ancient DNA reveals Europe's dynamic genetic history

    04/23/2013 5:49:47 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 72 replies ^ | 6 hours ago
    Ancient DNA recovered from a series of skeletons in central Germany up to 7500 years old has been used to reconstruct the first detailed genetic history of modern Europe. The study, published today in Nature Communications, reveals a dramatic series of events including major migrations from both Western Europe and Eurasia, and signs of an unexplained genetic turnover about 4000-5000 years ago. The research was performed at the University of Adelaide's Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD). Researchers used DNA extracted from bone and teeth samples from prehistoric human skeletons to sequence a group of maternal genetic lineages that are...

  • Ancient Skeletons Reveal Genetic History Of Central Europe

    10/12/2013 5:23:02 PM PDT · by Dysart · 15 replies
    In genetics, it’s not just the living who advance the field: DNA preserved in the brittle bones of our ancestors can provide significant insight into our genetic history. Such is the case with a new genetic history of Europe, traced by an international team of researchers and published today in Science. By creating a seamless genetic map from 7,500 to 3,500 years ago in one geographic region, scientists discovered that the genetic diversity of modern day Europe can’t be explained by a single migration, as previously thought, but by multiple migrations coming from a range of areas in modern day...

    Pope Francis is going to need a microscope to see this year's Christmas gift from Lithuania. The small Baltic country has given Francis a microscopic nativity scene where baby Jesus is smaller than a human cell. Pope Francis will have to look extra hard to see what's special about his Christmas present from Lithuania. Lithuania's government and researchers in the capital Vilnius announced on Friday that they sent Francis a nativity scene that is invisible to the naked eye. The scene is a replica of the life-sized creche located in Cathedral Square in downtown Vilnius. Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite posted...
  • Three Seas, One Aim: Preserving Liberty

    12/22/2017 9:28:04 PM PST · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | December 23, 2017 | Ed Feulner
    Nearly 30 years ago, the people of Eastern Europe were freed from the yoke of communism. Their liberation is a reminder that the Cold War didn’t just end -- it was won. And it was won because the ideas espoused by leaders such as Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II were far stronger than any army the Soviet Union could ever field. But eternal vigilance, as the saying goes, is the price of liberty. Freedom that is won can, through neglect, become freedom lost. Which is why, since the lifting of the Iron Curtain, America has...

    “Ukraine is at War,” states Herman Pirchner, Jr., President of the American Foreign Policy Council in Washington, D.C. The AFPC is a much needed Conservative alternative to the Council on Foreign Relations, which although much larger, exhibits too many Globalist themes and aims while diminishing America’s presence on the world stage. President Pirchner explains in his just released treatise that sanctions by the Obama administration and the EU have done little to tamp down Vladimir Putin’s campaign of aggression known as “hybrid warfare.” (1) Russia’s persistence in its Ukraine offensive is deeply rooted in the bloody history of the Ukraine...

    What happened in Uzbekistan? The government and opposition protesters are sharply at odds in Uzbekistan days after the eastern city of Andijan exploded into violence. A May 15 AP report claimed some 500 bodies had been laid out in a school in Andijan for identification by relatives, "corroborating witness accounts of hundreds killed" when soldiers opened fire on street protests. Medical authorities also reported some 2,000 wounded in local hospitals. However, a May 18 account on Russia's quotes Uzbek officials denying this very death toll. “Not a single civilian was killed by government forces there,” Prosecutor General Rashid Kadyrov...

    Latvia has joined Estonia and Lithuania in tightening ID controls and erecting fences on their eastern borders, worried the Baltic region will become a new entry point for Muslim freeloaders, rapists, and jihadists posing as refugees as migrant routes through the Balkans become harder. UK Express Latvia has completed the first stages of protecting EU borders after erecting a 14-mile fence along the Russian border to stop illegal migrants entering the European Union. The Baltic state is set to add another 37 miles this year, the country’s State Border Guard spokeswoman Jevgenija Poznaka confirmed. He said: “The construction was started...

    Germany began sending tanks and other equipment to Lithuania on Tuesday as part of a NATO mission to beef up the defense of eastern Europe and send a signal of resolve to Russia, which has denounced the build-up as an act of aggression. The German army command said it was sending about 200 vehicles, including 30 tanks, by train to Lithuania along with 450 troops, the first of whom arrived last week. The transports would continue until late February.

    Migrant families from camps in Greece and Turkey say they feel “cheated” to have been resettled in Lithuania, where benefits are lower than in Germany. One family is now looking into filing a complaint with the United Nations (UN). Despite families’ initially expressing gratitude to the Baltic state which offered them asylum, many have fled to richer countries, blasting asylum agencies for “deceiving” them by giving the impression that Lithuania is a “Class A” nation similar to Sweden and Germany.

    Lithuania on Monday signed its biggest ever arms deal for German-made armored vehicles, as it seeks to allay concerns of a military resurgence of Russia on its doorstep. In its biggest-ever arms purchase, the Baltic NATO member will buy 88 Boxer armored fighting vehicles for €386 million. Produced by the German-Dutch ARTEC consortium, the vehicles are fitted with Israeli-made turrets. […] The largest of the three Baltic states that broke free from the crumbling Soviet Union in 1991, Lithuania has increased its defense budget by about a third each year since 2014, when Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine....

    On Friday and Saturday (8-9 July 2016), the leaders of the 28 NATO Allies and many partner nations will meet for a landmark Warsaw Summit. Together, they will take decisions to enhance the Alliance’s security by strengthening its deterrence and defence, and projecting stability beyond its borders. Allies will agree to deploy four robust and multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, on a rotational basis. A multinational framework brigade in Romania will provide a tailored presence in south-eastern Europe. NATO will also take further steps to improve cyber defences, civil preparedness and to defend against ballistic missile attack...
