Oh boy, let the games begin!

Solomon’s seal on Islamic jug – RTN Costa Blancas Free Newspaper – Round Town News

During archaeological investigations at the site of the Roman Theatre in Cartagena over more than a decade many important finds were made, including pottery from the period when there was a small Islamic settlement there. These pieces include fragments of a beautiful jug decorated with patterns painted in manganese. Also featured on the jug is a “Seal of Solomon.” This is another name for the Star of David. A plant with drooping white flowers is known by the same name and it is said that scars that form as the stems of the plant decay resemble the pattern of ancient seals.

ABC News: Is Oprah Biased? Host Won’t Interview Palin

“She’s being two-faced,” said Dr. Cindy Grossman-Green, a pediatrician and Oprah fan from outside Philadelphia. “She initially had Obama on her show, but now that she’s decided [to support him], she won’t have any other political candidates on.”

Grossman-Green is referring to the two times Obama appeared on Winfrey’s show prior to announcing his plans to run for the presidency, once in January 2005 and, more recently, in October 2006.

Soldier forced to sleep in car after hotel refuses him a room – Times Online

A hotel that refused an injured soldier a room, forcing him to spend the night in his car, was backed into issuing a grovelling apology yesterday after receiving a barrage of abusive phone calls.

The Metro Hotel, in Woking, Surrey, called the police as its phone lines were flooded with angry and threatening calls from the public.

The attack on the switchboards came after it emerged that Corporal Tomos Stringer, 24, had been told that it was company policy not to accept members of the Armed Forces.

A soldier since the age of 16 and veteran of multiple tours in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, Corporal Stringer had travelled to Surrey to help with funeral preparations for a friend killed in action.

Wall dating to Second Temple unearthed | Israel | Jerusalem Post

“In the Second Temple period the city, with the Temple at its center, was a focal point for Jewish pilgrimage from all over the ancient world, and in the Byzantine period it attracted Christian pilgrims who came in the footsteps of the story of the life and death of their messiah,” said Yehiel Zelinger, the excavation’s director.

He said the builders of the Byzantine wall were unaware of the existence of the earlier structure, yet they placed their wall precisely along the same route due to its advantageous location for the defense of the city.

cbs3.com – Vermont Town St. Johnsbury Repeals Ban On Fortunetelling, Soothsaying

Behold, the future is being revealed and it looks bright for fortune tellers, clairvoyants, tarot card readers and anyone claiming to contact spirits in this corner of northern New England.

Soothsaying might still be banned in some parts of the country, but St. Johnsbury has repealed the ordinance against peering into the future that it had on the books since 1966.

“When the ordinance was lifted, I actually felt a large weight lifting from my shoulders,” said Maria Pawlowski, a tarot card reader. “It was very oppressive to have to refrain from something that was as natural to me as breathing.”

Stonehenge Investigations Continue Visitors Welcome (from Salisbury Journal)

ARCHAEOLOGISTS from around the country are investigating Stonehenge and the surrounding areas in, and visitors are being invited to come along to see history brought to life.

As part of the ongoing Riverside Project experts are going to be digging at sites near the ancient stones to find out more about their links with Stonehenge itself.

Many who visit the stones may not know they are part of a complex series of monuments on Salisbury Plain, including the 3k-long Stonehenge Cursus and Durrington Walls, Britain’s largest henge, which were inhabited at the same time the sarsen stones were put up at about 2600-2500BC.
