    Greek archaeologists expressed their concern on Monday over the abandonment by the state of the site of the mid-5th century BC Temple of Artemis Agrotera, which they described as "one of the most historically important archaeological sites in the center of Athens." The Ionic-style temple, dedicated to the Greek virgin goddess of the hunt was constructed of Pentelic marble. It stands on Ardittou street, in the neighbourhood of Mets, surrounded by modern buildings. In a press release titled "A monument in danger," the Association of Greek Archaeologists says that despite numerous decisions published by the Central Archaeological Council since 1964...

    A number of U.S. multinational companies, including Coca-Cola, IBM, and Citi, have signed onto an open letter that calls on the British Government to legalize homosexual “marriage” in Northern Ireland. The companies claim this is necessary “to attract the best talent to Northern Ireland” and because the multinationals want LGBT employees “to be themselves.” The open letter was created by Amnesty International and it is headlined “Businesses for Love Equality,” and has the Twitter hashtag #Businesses4LoveEquality. […] Some of the U.S.-based multinationals that signed the letter include Coca-Cola, IBM, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Citi, Allstate Northern Ireland, Santander Bank, and Baker...

    I believe there is a serious problem with PROP 6. Here is what happened to me today. I went to register my car at an off site non DMV registration office. I ask the owner, whom I have known for years, a question. If she was going to vote YES on Prop 6? Her response "What's Prop 6?" I was shocked. So told her about PROP 6. Also, on my way out of her office, I ran into an old friend who owns a auto salvage yard.. I also asked him about Prop 6 Again he said he never heard...

    While QAnon is 8chan’s most visible success, anons also run many smaller campaigns. These have less obvious connections to QAnon. For example, on Sept. 5 one anon on the /qresearch/ board posted an image of a woman exchanging money and another image of the same woman being escorted out of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. The anon suggested this was evidence she was a paid protester. Another anon combined the images, along with a third close-up image of the woman’s hands holding the money, and formatted the final combined image so it could be easily shared on mainstream social networks. The...

    In March, State Department veteran and former adviser to Barack Obama, Frederic Hof, bid farewell to public life with a stunning admission. Amid a confession regarding his failure to prevent the expansion of the Syrian civil war into a regional crisis, Hof laid the blame for that all-consuming conflict (as well as a notable uptick in Russian aggression) at the feet of Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. The administration sacrificed Syrian civilians and American credibility for the mistaken notion that Iran required appeasement in Syria as the price for a nuclear agreement,” Hof wrote. Today, with 500,000 dead, millions...

    RANSON, W.Va. — Concerned Residents against Rockwool organized a protest Tuesday at the Jefferson County Development Authority. This comes just days after another group, known as Jefferson County Vision, filed a lawsuit against the authority for allowing the insulation plant to locate in Ranson. A Tuesday afternoon Jefferson County Development Authority meeting would have included the final reading of a water bond for Rockwool. As opposition grew outside of their windows, the authority decided to table the motion. 35 people were on the list to speak with a few dozen more waiting outside. Those who oppose the facility cite a...

    We’re thrilled to report that the herds of wild horses that roam North Carolina’s Outer Banks have emerged from Hurricane Florence unscathed. Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Corolla Wild Horse Fund both confirmed on social media over the weekend that their equine populations are safe and sound following Hurricane Florence’s lashing last week. Corolla Wild Horse Fund herd manager Meg Puckett told The News & Observer that the wild herd found higher ground and grouped together against the wind and rain. People on the island also kept an eye on them.

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a graduate of the all-girls private high school attended by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault decades ago, has signed a letter in support of her. Louis-Dreyfus, a 1979 graduate of the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, tweeted Monday that she joins some 200 alumnae who stand with Ford, 51, a California research psychologist. “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story,” says the draft letter, according to the Huffington Post. “It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can...

    Folks, is that photo we see posted of Christine Blasey Ford current or not so current. Thus far, I have only witnessed two photos of Ms. Ford, one, when she a young teenage lady and one taken when it appears she was a bit older. The other day, when I googled her Facebook page to see what she looked like, asking to see images of her, a sight flashed up on screen and then immediately disappeared. I tried a few times to re-enter my inquiry with no luck. For some reason, IMHO, I am beginning to believe that forces out...

    Lawmakers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania sent a letter to Walmart executives earlier this month asking them to "demonstrate their corporate responsibility" and stop the sale of items with Soviet imagery. The officials argued that carrying the items meant Walmart was participating in "promotion, among its customers worldwide, of totalitarianism, human rights abuse and suppression of freedom and democracy, the values that allowed such corporations as Walmart to grow and prosper.”

    The Democrats had a problem. A young conservative judge seems headed for confirmation to the Supreme Court, and nothing they did was working. Not the screaming women who had be to evicted periodically from the hearings while shouting obscenities; not the thousands of people who called Susan Collins, told her to f--k herself, and said that they hoped that someone would rape her and her assistants; not the complaints of Gloria Steinem, who tied global warming to a dearth of abortions; not the assurance of the famed Biblical scholar Chelsea Clinton that Christianity was really about supporting abortion.

    Back in 2004, John Kerry and George W. Bush squared off in their second debate. In one question, an audience member asked whether her tax dollars would be used to support abortion. Kerry gave a rambling, two-minute answer that ended with the affirmative. Bush stood up, walked over to her, and said directly to her, "Your tax dollars will not be used to support abortion." The next day was "Respect Life" Sunday for the Catholic Church. Not even a mention by the priest although he certainly discussed the issue of life. Kerry would go on to lose the election... but...
