Democracy was developed in the City-States of Byblos, Sidon, Tyr, Ugarit and Mary several centuries before Athens existed.  These City-States had democracy within their city limits as Athens and Rome emulated later on.

Why within city-State limits?  Because communication and transport were limited and the administration of such a complex democratic system was not feasible at a larger magnitude at the time; thus democracy was not translated to the colonies as Greek Athens also failed to do.

We can confirm that the Near East Mediterranean region was the bedrock of all civilizations of the Mediterranean Sea in religion, philosophy, sciences, literature and arts. Regardless of genetic sources, which are an amalgamation of many nations, anyone from current States in the Near East should take pride in their ancient civilizations and their original identity as the forefathers of contemporary modern democratic civilizations in Europe and the Greater Mediterranean Sea regions.

“Young people should prove to be good sons in the family, polite and respectful in society, prudent and loyal, liking the company of good men.  After learning and applying these moral values, you feel you have energy to acquiring knowledge, then study and read.”

60 is the Number of fragrance producers (which employ 13,000 workers) based in Grasse, France—known as the “Silicon Valley of perfume.”

5% of the global population with anosmia, the inability to smell.

How to train your smelling nose? Ugo Charron: “It’s a long journey.  Aspiring perfumers typically have an undergraduate degree in chemistry, and go through 5–10 years of training and professional apprenticeships. The curricula includes advanced chemistry classes, blending, raw materials, safety regulations, storytelling, and of course, a lot of smelling. At the end of the training, a perfumer must be able to ID around 500 scents within seconds.

Electronic noses are used to detect spoiled food, gas leaks, or even knock-off perfumesNASA’s ENose is so sensitive it can sniff the difference between Pepsi and Coke.

On Dec. 27, 155 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln ordered 38 Dakota Warriors to be hung. It was the largest mass execution in U.S. history, but this will never be talked about in any history class #Dakota38 #NeverForget

“Conveyor belt” Civilization: Tribes bordering urban and rural regions. transmitters of cultural differences, prime “intelligence gatherer or front-line intelligence agencies” for the powerful neighboring empires. They are the guides in time of wars; they guard the security of caravans crossing regions and extend facilities in water and supplies.

Le monde est plein de choses tres belles. On passe sa vie sans les connaitre. Sans un passport colonial, c’est difficile de voir toutes ces beautes: On doit se contenter des beautes locales

Les adolescent males n’aime pas la vie: la mort les comprend mieux que tout

L’histoire appartient a ceux qui la vie: tous les autres s’invitent et la raconte a chacun leu leu (fake news?)

I saw a news report from England that showed some doctors were aborting babies because they were baby girls! This shocked me so I looked into it and realised this is far from unusual, it is the norm in some countries.

Girls are targeted for abortion just because they are girls and seen of as lesser value. Abortion is wiping out thousands of girls and pro choice feminists won’t say a word. As a #prolifefeminist I speak up for girls at all stages of life. #LoveBoth #Savethe8th www.loveboth.ie ( 20 year-old Celine Murray)
