Field mapping and in situ zircon study identify a new 3. Abstract Early mantle differentiation is yet to be well constrained because isotopic systems recorded in many ancient rocks are arguably susceptible to later disturbances. Although refractory zircon is of singular importance in deciphering early Earth history, a growing body of work on ancient zircons indicates that interpretations of their U—Pb ages and Hf—O isotopes are neither straightforward nor unique. To better understand these issues, we conducted a systematic in situ zircon U—Pb, Hf and O isotopic study guided by detailed field mapping 1: Three rock units were recognized and precisely dated: These data combined with whole-rock geochemistry suggest that this Eoarchean trondhjemitic geniss was either formed by magma mixing or probably derived from a heterogeneous basaltic source at ca. This provides new isotopic evidence for the existence of an Eoarchean ultra-depleted mantle domain underlying NCC. A literature survey reveals that this Eoarchean ultra-depleted signature was not registered in younger zircons worldwide, suggesting that this ultra-depleted mantle signature may be transient, possibly erased by subsequent mantle re-homogenization processes.

YMMV What was this image from again? The Shee were a race unique in their mindset, most likely having invented the steam engine as an offshoot of an attempt to design a better way of brewing tea before they invented the wheel. This Stock Character is a brilliant scientist, but, uh, very flighty, often forgetting things like the date, people’s names , meetings, eating , people’s names , etc. His mind tends to run a mile a minute, he can often struggle to hold a normal conversation, and it’s typical for him to become so engrossed in his work that he loses track of just about everything else.

Good thing he and it’s very often a he is good at what he does and often has perfect memory for scientific details or mathematical values.

The first assumption in a relationship described as a Love Triangle is that someone’s got to go. There is a lot of good drama/comedy in that little conundrum. 3. The classic love war set up. Bob and Charlie want Alice. Alice is neutral toward, or not initially thinking in romantic terms of Bob and.

Peppermint Patty and Marcie are both shown interested in Charlie Brown. This is how Touhou fanon portrays Marisa’s effect on pretty much every other character she meets , but especially so with Patchouli and Alice. Marisa steals the precious things. One death and one optional Relationship Upgrade seems to resolve this later, but all subsequent storylines deliberately keep things up for debate. Even Tetsuya Nomura outright states that “I have no idea” if Cloud ever made his choice.

Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler. Were the directors right, from an historical point of view? Were the ancient Greeks and Romans of North European stock? Most classical historians today are silent on the subject. For example, Paul Cartledge, a professor of Greek culture at Cambridge, writes about his specialty, Sparta, for educated but non-academic readers, yet nowhere that I can find does he discuss the racial origins of the Spartans.

Some years ago I asked several classics professors about the race of the ancient Greeks only to be met with shrugs that suggested that no one knew, and that it was not something worth looking into.

Vi and I have just returned from Chengdu, a Chinese village of seventeen million and the gateway to Tibet. Since China is of some interest to the US these days, I thought a description of sorts, actually more in the nature of a disordered travelogue, might be of interest.

Tuthmosis is a Columnist-at-Large at Return of Kings. You can follow him on Twitter. Like it or not, online dating is gradually taking over. She took a skydiving picture. She did a novelty race where they spray you with colored powder at the end. All of those pale in comparison to the mother of all of online-dating dangers: Girls today are masters at photographing themselves in the most flattering way possible.

And, all you need to do is shadow a few of them for one night to understand how they acquired that skill: Not only do they have thousands of pictures from which to cherry-pick the best ones, they have countless hours of practice in posing, emphasizing, and concealing. Moreover, girls receive constant input—from other girls as well as their desperate online male admirers—about when they look their best.

A college-aged girl has an advanced knowledge of her physique—and photography—far beyond the average guy, even 10 years her elder.

R. Peterson’s fine study, The Classical World (), which includes an analysis of 43 Greek, and 32 Roman figures, is persuasive. Dr. Peterson explains that the Romans painted their death masks to preserve the color, as well as the shape, of their ancestors’ faces.

Sorry about that but the site is on a lousy host and that’s not likely to change. Just keep reloading pages until they work. It will go through eventually. Many of my mods use Smarter EP Check. If a mod is not working, the first thing to do is make sure you have Smarter EP Check in your Downloads folder. They have all been tested in my games, but some not extensively. The exceptions should be obvious – you need OFB for servo mods, Nightlife for dating mods and so on.

The Sims 2 stuff packs are a bit more complicated since different packs use different code bases. Take a look at Stuff-it Packs for Dummies at Simbology for more information. Sims 2 combo packs like such as Double Deluxe or University Life are evil. They don’t necessarily correspond to the EPs they contain, so whether or not mods will work with them is a crap shoot. The Store version apparently also has mod compatibility issues.

Nothing I can do about that.

Share With a sample of an instructor’s grading methodology, the software can then evaluate written pieces. Agarwal insists that the method is a useful pedagogical tool, according to his comments to the New York Times. He highlights how the software enables students to improve their writing based on automated feedback provided in the instant review process. Anant Agarwal, president of edX, admits the automated grading software isn’t perfect but insists it is ‘good enough’ But the software has its critics.

Many wonder how some of the greatest and unconventional writers like the emotionally vulnerable Nora Ephron, the hilariously witty Garrison Keillor, the satirical Jason Gay and the insightful David Foster Wallace would fare being reviewed by an automated computer system. Les Perelman, a researcher at M. Nearly 2, naysayers have joined the group, Professionals Against Machine Scoring of Student Essays in High-Stakes Assessment, to sign a petition to oppose the software.

Computers cannot read,’ the group said in a statement. EdX, a Cambridge, Mass. Is it really too much to expect that college students get a live pair of eye balls to read over their essays One professor, Mark Sherman from the University of Akron in Ohio, told the Times that the reality of education is that professors just don’t have the bandwidth to provide thorough feedback. A fair suggestion but any college student could tell you that a large portion of essay grading has already been farmed out to teaching assistants.

Since academics live by the mantra ‘publish or perish,’ this software simply allows them the time to focus on their own writing instead of assisting students they are paid to instruct.

Background[ edit ] By U. On February 19, , U. In August , Japan surrendered and Allied occupation troops landed on the main islands, starting the formal occupation of Japan. The Allied occupation ended in most of Japan on April 28, , but did not end in Okinawa until May 15, , when the terms of the Treaty of San Francisco went into effect.

During the Pacific War the Japanese Government frequently issued propaganda claiming that if the country was defeated Japanese women would be raped and murdered by Allied soldiers. The government used this claim to justify orders to soldiers and civilians in areas which were invaded by Allied forces to fight to the death or commit suicide. More than , soldiers and civilians, including one-third of the population of Okinawa, were killed”. There are, however, numerous credible testimony accounts which allege that a large number of rapes were committed by U.

Soon after the U. At the time, there were only women, children and old people in the village, as all the young men had been mobilized for the war. Soon after landing, the marines “mopped up” the entire village, but found no signs of Japanese forces.

The Sims 2 is a strategic life simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic is the sequel to The Sims.. The game has the same concept as its predecessor: players control their Sims in various activities and form relationships in a manner similar to real life. The Sims 2, like its predecessor, does not have a defined final goal; the gameplay is open-ended.

Gameplay[ edit ] From the neighborhood view, the player selects one lot to play, as in The Sims. Sims can travel to Community lots in order to purchase things like clothing and magazines, and to interact with NPCs and townies. The player can choose between playing a pre-made inhabited lot, moving a household into an unoccupied pre-built lot, or constructing a building on an empty lot.

One novelty from The Sims is foundations. The player switches among the “live” mode default to control Sims, the “buy” mode to add, move or delete furniture, or the “build” mode to rebuild the house. Buy and build mode cannot be accessed when on a community lot, but can be opened by using the neighborhood view. It is also possible to import neighborhood terrains from SimCity 4. Sims can throw parties to gain aspiration points or invite the headmaster over for dinner in order to enroll their children in private school.

In Nightlife, each date is a challenge to keep both Sims as happy as possible while accumulating aspiration points. Various other expansion packs introduce supernatural characters which Sims can be turned into, such as Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, Plantsims, and Witches. Sims[ edit ] The main part of the game is to lead a Sim from the start of life to death.

A Sim will be born when a female Sim and a male Sim try for a baby. The mother will spend 3 Sim days each day lasts 24 minutes though time can be sped-up pregnant before giving birth to a baby. Instead, every day, it “pops” to a bigger size.
