Ancient Mayan Astronomy.


Ancient Mayan Astronomy.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Ancient-Mayan-Astronomy

From hubpages.com - October 3, 2013 10:11 AM



The Mayas were a civilization that developed in regions of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico and Central America. The Mayas, like other Mesoamerican civilizations, had many accomplishments in architecture, art, writing, and mathematics; however, some of their major accomplishments were made in astronomy. The Mayas were assiduous observers of the heavens with which they related most of their activities on Earth. The practice of naked eye sky watching must have been one of their principal pass times.

By observing the heavens, they were able to track the path of the Sun in the sky, and record the times of the summer and winter solstices, as well as the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Like other civilizations, the Mayas found in the skies the forms of animal creatures, some of which they related to those found in the rain forests at the tropics. The Milky Way, for the Mayas, was the tree of life, where all life originates, and was called Wakah Chan. They developed a precise calendar based on their observations of the heavens, and all their observations were recorded in their codices. Portals to XibalbaXibalbaSource: La Rebellion de los Tornillos, CC-BY-2.0 via FlickrXibalba

The limestone column resembles the Milky Way, known as the World Tree by the Mayas. Caves were seen by the Mayas as portals to the underworld where the spirits of the dead interwined with the supernatural beings

Mayas considered the universe in three distinct levels. The heavens and all the astronomical events were in the superior level. The earth and all its life was considered as the intermediate level and the inferior level was comprised by the underworld, which they called Xibalba. In this level was where the Sun engaged itself in a struggle, after setting in the evening horizon, with the beings of the underworld, which always were defeated, resuming its journey the following through the superior level.

Astronomy was a tradition among Mesoamerican civilizations, although, the Mayas developed it with a higher degree of complexity, relating it to seasonal cycles, religion, astrology and their own origin in the universe. The Mayas made exact calculations of the periodic cycles of the planets, as well as those of the Sun and Moon. The group of stars known as Pleiades (Tz´ab ek), which they thought was their place of origin, was seen as the tail of a rattle snake.

From www.scoop.it - August 29, 2013 6:52 PM


Astronomy is one of the oldest natural sciences and studies celestial objects (such as moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies), the physics, chemistry, mathematics, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic background radiation. Theoretical astronomy is oriented towards the development of computer or analytical models to describe celestrial phenomena. A related but distinct subject, cosmology, is concerned with studying the universe as a whole.Shine on the web

"My photo used to help raise awareness of the ethics behind Civet Cat coffee." Paul Williams.

From www.thedodo.com - May 10, 6:58 PM

Posted by Paul Williams

'Cut the Crappacino' - my photo used to help raise awareness of the ethics behind Civet Cat coffee.

A few years ago I tried the curious 'cage-free' blend of Civet cat coffee when I visited a coffee farmer in India. Now one of my civet cat photos is being used as part of a campaign against the booming industry of farmed civet cat coffee in South East Asia "Cut the Crappucino"

Civet coffee, or Kopi Luwak as it’s known in Indonesia, is one of the world’s most expensive drinks, selling for up to £70 per cup - you can try some in Selfridges. It’s made from coffee beans, which have been partially digested by Civet cats, small mammals that look like a cross between a weasel and a cat. Their digestive enzymes denature the beans and alter the final taste, which according to coffee experts, gives the coffee its uniquely smooth and rich flavour. But is it cruel or unethical?

The Ethical Blend: In a small village close to Bangalore in South India I met Ganesh, a coffee farmer, locally famous for his special brew. Every December his estate is visited by a hoard of tiny palm civets who come for the succulent red coffee fruits, selectively picking the ripest and sweetest, wolfing them down during the night. While the damage is minimal many crop producers might go to the extreme to protect their livelihood from such an invasion, yet for Ganesh, a keen Wildlife watcher, it's actually a treat. Since reading an article in National Geographic about the production of Kopi Luwak in Korea he has simply just let the Civets get on with their nocturnal gorging. On occasion he even catches them in the act and just keeps his distance observing them as they stand on their hind legs to reach the best fruit. 'It's only the fruity outer layer that their interested in' He goes on to tell me how the two coffee beans at the core of each fruit are concentrated, cleaned and processed as they pass through the civets digestive tract, eventually being dumped - usually under a coffee plant for Ganesh to find in the morning. 'All I have to do is go around popping the poop into a basket for roasting later.' he says with a grin.

Japanese ships killing whales 'inside sanctuary'

From telania.wordpress.com - January 10, 3:55 PM
Aerial footage released by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society appears to show the bloodied remains of three minke whales.


By Hannah Strange

3:31AM GMT 06 Jan 2014

Three minke whales lie on the deck of the Japanese whaling vessel Nisshin Maru in the Southern Ocean (Sea Shepherd Australia Ltd/Tim Watters)

Activists have captured rare images of protected whales slaughtered by a Japanese fleet in what is said to be an internationally recognised ocean sanctuary, offering a stark insight into Japan’s secretive but much-criticised whaling practices.
