2nd Friday Contra Dance

Tabor volcanic butte was identified as a site for reservoirs in the s due to its ideal elevation for a water distribution system. The Mount Tabor reservoirs were built during the period of and , along with reservoirs in Washington Park. City fathers formed a water committee and created a municipal water system piping water some 25 miles from the Bull Run River watershed, separate and west of Mt. The Bull Run watershed was among the first federal lands to be set aside in the Forest Reserve Act of and enacted by president Benjamin Harrison. The reservoirs and their gatehouses are artistically constructed, incorporating extensive reinforced concrete, designed to look like stonework , by two early patented techniques by noted engineer Ernest L. Ransome [12] and wrought-iron fencing and lampposts designed by architect William M. There were initially four above-ground reservoirs, numbered 1, 2, 5, and 6. Reservoirs 3 and 4 are at Washington Park, and Reservoir 7 is a small underground reservoir near Mount Tabor’s summit. Reservoir 2, on the corner of SE 60th and Division, was decommissioned in the s, and the property was sold to a private developer. Its gatehouse remains, and is used as a private residence.

Calls me and only chats at night. Claims to be poor and wanted money. Thank you for this site,I was about to be scammed by this girl. She wanted money for a passport and Visa to visit. She called me today and asked for money.

And hence, if 20 blocks, it would then take “20 days” to complete printing?

We met downtown over coffee on a weekday morning a couple months ago. And I was struck that nobody in the passing parade of briefcases, lattes and workday stares appeared to notice the year-old as she adjusted her ponytail, wiped the tears and unloaded a story that she’s carried like a bag of bricks for years. She emailed me a few days earlier, up late one night, unable to sleep. In a chilling account, she detailed how she reported to police that she was sexually assaulted in by four men, three of them college football players.

She said she was gang raped, sodomized, robbed, and then, re-victimized — her word — when a college football coach suspended two of the players for one game and was quoted as saying his players had made, “a bad choice. All these years later, it sends her hurtling back to the rape examination at Salem Hospital, the police interview, having to tell her boyfriend and mother, and the whispers, guilt and shame.

For years, she’s been hung up on that three-word hook — “a bad choice” — as if violating her body was like knocking on the wrong door in the right neighborhood. She reported the gang rape to police in She’d told investigators the men stood around, watching it happen and cheering the others on. At one point, she said she begged one of the men to make it stop. The team was Oregon State.

Once home, she called her mother, who was at work.

Recently a threesome of “same-image” prints came our way–of course, giving us the opportunity for a direct side-by-side comparison of these three prints. The image of which we speak is the beautifully shaded “interior view” of Eisho Narazaki’s print, “Interior of Asakusa Temple,” seen just below. NARAZAKI’s print, “Interior of Asakusa Temple” — “C-seal,” “D-seal,” and “6mm-seal” The interesting thing which was immediately noted was the different location choose for “seal placement” in the print’s two earliest states, and then, the realization that the print’s “margin-dating” which is carved into the print’s “key-block” had been carved OFF prior to the printing of the two later examples.

While we were well familiar with this practice of carving OFF a print’s “margin-dating” once a print’s “first edition” printing had been completed with respect to prints published by Unsodo Publisher, we did not immediately recall seeing this practice having been done by Watanabe Publisher. To learn more about this removal of “margin-dates” by Unsodo, please see our discussion given in our “Quick Reference” article titled “The Seals of Unsodo Han.

Seemingly then, at least then in the case of this Watanabe-published print by Narazaki, Watanabe has mirrored the Unsodo Publisher’s practice of “date removal” once a print’s first edition printing is completed. Further observations will be needed to determine how widespread this practice may have been within Watanabe. We have featured the remarkable and diverse artistic talents of Binnie in several of our prior articles, including our November article, “The Making of a Print — Paul Binnie’s ‘Red Fuji'” which gave many insights into the intricate process of developing a new print.

That is, he is not simply an artist–he also does the arduous task of carving all of his own blocks, plus then the time-consuming task of the sheet by sheet printing. Very few artists who produce such detailed “shin-hanga” prints such as Paul’s many require plus individual blocks will ever attempt to also master the skills required to then also be the “carver” AND finally then the “printer.

Bloomington votes overwhelmingly Democrat in what is otherwise a swing state.

Evidence at Mohenjo-Daro When excavations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro reached the street level, they discovered skeletons scattered about the cities, many holding hands and sprawling in the streets as if some instant, horrible doom had taken place. People were just lying, unburied, in the streets of the city. And these skeletons are thousands of years old, even by traditional archaeological standards. What could cause such a thing? Why did the bodies not decay or get eaten by wild animals?

Furthermore, there is no apparent cause of a physically violent death. These skeletons are among the most radioactive ever found, on par with those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. At one site, Soviet scholars found a skeleton which had a radioactive level 50 times greater than normal. Other cities have been found in northern India that show indications of explosions of great magnitude. One such city, found between the Ganges and the mountains of Rajmahal, seems to have been subjected to intense heat.

Huge masses of walls and foundations of the ancient city are fused together, literally vitrified! And since there is no indication of a volcanic eruption at Mohenjo-Daro or at the other cities, the intense heat to melt clay vessels can only be explained by an atomic blast or some other unknown weapon. The cities were wiped out entirely.

While the skeletons have been carbon-dated to BC, we must keep in mind that carbon-dating involves measuring the amount of radiation left.
