Mosul Museum rebuild…

leave a comment »

ISIS sacked the museum in Mosul a few weeks ago,  and probably destroying much of its 300 years of existence in the process.   Now researchers from the ITN-DCH, IAPP and 4D-CH-WORLD projects have launched Project MOSUL to virtually restore damaged artifacts and make  them accessible  from virtual museums.

I hope it works,  but shame on us all for allowing it to happen in the first place.

Willful ignorance…

leave a comment »

That is how retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn,  the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency,  characterized Obama’s Middle East policy,  though I would argue it applies to all of his foreign policy.  If you didn’t catch him on Fox News Sunday,  watch  him here.

Rubio’s tax reform plan…

leave a comment »

In the opening paragraph,  Sen. Marco Rubio displays more economic savvy than His Oneness has in six years as President.   I’d like more details,  but the outline  is quite  interesting.

I will say that the Senator’s statement on Mr. Obama’s understanding of the economy is correct.  Both Barack and Michelle Obama have at various times issued statements evidencing that they believe economic winners win by taking from the losers.   They see the  pie as static,  and their only aim is to be in control of selecting the winners.   That is the statist mind at work,  totally incapable of comprehending that the size of the pie can be increased so that everyone benefits.

Burgos excavation…

leave a comment »

I often wonder if so many Americans are interested in archaeology because we live in such a young country by historical standards.   Yes,  our continent’s history is much older than our nation,  but large civilizations in North America  were rare.

Whether you’re a archaeology enthusiast like me or not,  the finds at the old port of Burgos,  Bulgaria,  are exciting.   See for  yourself.

Chief Dan George offers  a blessing.   We could all use one,  couldn’t we?
