The discovery of the graves of four pre-Hispanic Mexican children provided insight into the harsh living conditions that followed the fall of the Aztec Empire.

Named after the property where the excavations took place, the Argentina 95 project was carried out in La Lagunilla, a district in the historic center of Mexico City, formerly known as Cotolco, belonging to Atzacoalco, one of the four territories of Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire. In the 16th century, the Spanish conquerors began to build on the ruins of the city.

Investigators from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) discovered the remains and said the smallest child, likely an unborn child, was found in a womb-like vessel with two bowls ceramic.

It was a funerary practice that hoped to return the child to the womb, according to Juan Carlos Campos Varela, archaeologist in charge of the excavations.

Detail of skull pathology, found at 95 Argentina Street in the Lagunilla neighborhood of Mexico City, Mexico.

Although none of the graves showed signs of ritual sacrifice, the bone remains of the oldest infant showed signs of severe malnutrition.

The largest offering, consisting of five small vessels, two spindles and a blue figurine of a woman with a girl on her lap, is said to have belonged to a girl aged 6 to 8.

On the whole, the most complete offer is that of the child of 6 or 8 years.

Experts have found traces of a settlement dating from 1521 to 1620 as well as early colonial walls built on top of pre-Hispanic walls, which were used to push residents to the outskirts of the city.

Away from prying eyes, they continued to practice acts of resistance, such as funeral rituals, for the next 20 to 30 years.

A total of 200 items were recovered, including toys, whistles, plates, coins and medals.

Last year, to mark 200 years of Mexican independence, Pope Francis apologized for the “very painful errors” of the Catholic Church in the country, a decision criticized by the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, who maintained that Spain had brought freedom, civilization and Catholicism to the American continent.

Historians estimate that 80% of the indigenous peoples of Mexico and Central America died in the late 16th century at the hands of the Spanish conquerors due to battles, exploitation and epidemics brought to the continent.

Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica consisted of seven major societies credited with important inventions such as the concept of zero.

These complex cultures practiced trade and competed for influence in the region with their theories on politics, art, religion and technology.

Vintage Austin Bantam Cars Come Home From Their Invention – Butler Eagle https://manycreation.com/vintage-austin-bantam-cars-come-home-from-their-invention-butler-eagle/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 23:35:02 +0000 https://manycreation.com/vintage-austin-bantam-cars-come-home-from-their-invention-butler-eagle/

The 50th Anniversary of the American Austin Bantam Club was held in Butler in 2013 and featured over 30 classic cars all made in Butler. File photo of the eagle butler

The last time the American Austin Bantam Club met in Butler was in 2013 for its 50th meeting. The Austin pictured is part of the collection of George and Karol Hailin, who hosted the event. File photo of the eagle butler

Butler will once again be swarmed with vehicles on Wednesday, when members of the American Austin Bantam Club gather for the group’s 60th annual meeting.

But unlike the Bantam Jeep Fest that took place in early June, these vehicles are much slimmer and more compact, have a top speed of around 30 to 35 miles per hour and go around 50 miles per gallon.

In other words, they are the forerunners of the Jeep.

“These are all antiques from around 1930 through 1942 – all pre-WWII,” said Jack Cohen, president of the Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau. “These are beautiful vehicles; they’re fun to drive and great to see as they show the history of our vehicles that were made here in Butler.

Biology professor receives Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award – The Brock News https://manycreation.com/biology-professor-receives-banting-research-foundation-discovery-award-the-brock-news/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 20:06:48 +0000 https://manycreation.com/biology-professor-receives-banting-research-foundation-discovery-award-the-brock-news/

Ian Patterson received the Banting Research Foundation Discovery Award.

The Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Brock University was one of six recipients to receive the grant recognizing innovative biomedical and health research projects by outstanding new investigators at universities and research institutes across Canada.

Up to $30,000 is awarded to each recipient for a one-year term. The intention is to provide seed funding so that researchers can collect pilot data and improve their competitiveness for other sources of funding.

Patterson and his research team will use the grant to study how a group of viruses that only infect insects can be used to block Zika virus infection.

“We plan to modify a harmless insect-specific virus to be able to specifically target the Zika virus and prevent infection and transmission in mosquitoes,” he says.

“I am very grateful for the Banting Research Foundation award. This will allow our group to begin research in Brock’s Containment Level 3 (CL3) laboratory and insectarium,” he says. “The work we can do is unique in Canada, so it’s important to build capacity as a new group and become more competitive for future fundraising appeals.

Patterson and his team also recently received funding from the federal government’s Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council to support their work.

To learn more about Patterson’s research or the Discovery Awards, visit the Banting Research Foundation website.

Marc Jacobs finds his Nietzsche at the NY Public Library https://manycreation.com/marc-jacobs-finds-his-nietzsche-at-the-ny-public-library/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 04:38:47 +0000 https://manycreation.com/marc-jacobs-finds-his-nietzsche-at-the-ny-public-library/
Placeholder while loading article actions

NEW YORK — Not every designer can successfully frame a fashion show around a quote from Nietzsche. But Marc Jacobs has always had an inordinate flair for drama.

“We have art so as not to die of truth,” the German philosopher once said, a line Jacobs chose to emphasize in his program notes for Monday night’s parade in the Great Hall. entrance to the New York Public Library on Manhattan’s Fifth Street.

In case there was any doubt that Jacobs was referring to turbulent developments in the outside world, he also spoke of making and sharing his creative choices “in contrast to the continuing brutality and ugliness of a world beyond.” beyond our insulated but not impermeable walls”.

Jacobs’ show in the marble hall of the famous library took place exactly one year after his previous show in the same venue. This show, also held in the summer and not during Fashion Week, was the first in-person show since the pandemic shut things down for a few seasons, and was meant to send an emphatic message that New York was back. It would have been difficult at the time to imagine that a year later the pandemic would by no means be over.

But New York is buzzing nonetheless, and so is Jacobs’ track. Like last year, there was a futuristic touch to his designs, with oversized proportions, shiny materials, whimsical shapes and lots of color.

Models wearing white platform boots sported sparkly looks like a shimmering dress in cobalt blue with a matching scarf tied around the neck. This set and others were accompanied by elbow-length gloves. Oddly enough, there were high-end surgical scrubs, like a lavender ensemble with drawstring pants and those long gloves, seemingly ready for the operating room.

The bright blue or pink sweaters were huge and bulky, with giant sleeves slung around the waist or over the shoulders, bulky enough to hide another human. The puffy clothes quickly gave way to more stripped-down ensembles like a long pink skirt with a tiny sequin bikini top.

A striking look was a metallic tunic that resembled chain mail, paired with elbow-length black gloves and a neckerchief of the same material. Then came the fanciest stuff: long green or purple skirts with shiny oversized puff sleeves and a dramatic, puffy dress in neon green.

Jacobs was clearly having fun with materials and shapes, and indeed he listed them in his show notes. Next to a column titled “Humans” (that would be the models, a list that included sisters Hadid, Bella and Gigi), he revealed his materials – canvas, denim, foil, glass, leather, paint, paper, plaster (!), plastic, rubber and vinyl. Shapes included bikinis, blazers, cardigans, cargo pants — and scrubs, among others.

The dominant theme seemed to be expressed in the show’s title: “Choice”, and even more so, creativity. “My feeling is unwavering,” the designer wrote. “Creativity is essential to life.”

We know you’re hard at work on the new electrified Jaguar range, but what about the new Land Rover models?

“We will also advance some of them, even earlier than planned to deal with electrification. But I cannot give details yet.”

Your Land Rover brands are extremely strong, but even if you have work to do on the Land Rover Discovery family, don’t you?

“Yes, that’s true. Our success with the new Defender has certainly had an effect on Discovery’s position. But we believe Discovery has a big role to play within Land Rover as a whole family, and we work hard for it.”

What kind of niche can Discovery have?

“It’s always been a very family-friendly model, the response wants to improve on that. It needs to have many of the best features of our luxury models, but with an emphasis on practicality and affordability.”

Given the relatively high prices of your cars and the demand for new models like the Defender, surely you must be the envy of the automotive world?

“Yes, I believe you are right. We certainly have a lot of satisfied customers. Just yesterday I was talking to a neighbor of mine who has a Range Rover Sport. He stopped me in the street and said ‘Thank you , Terry. my car.’ It was a great moment.”

You cook your pizza on it, then instead of needing a plate, you can just cut the tray. I’m not sure if this one is eco-friendly, but it seems pretty handy.

3. Pizza Games

Yes, that’s right folks. Among these amazing pizza inventions is a video game that lets you get creative and make your own pizza. You can also play a game where you manage your own pizzeria. The options are endless.

4. Pizza Sweatshirt

Not only is this crew neck sweater nice and toasty warm, but it’s also covered in greasy pepperoni and grilled cheese. Just like a pizza. So if you’re trying to keep warm and love pizza, you might want to grab one.

5. Individual pizza plates

This invention truly changed the pizza game and is now found in pizzerias around the world.

Now, when you’re out late at night downtown and craving a nice greasy slice, you don’t have to worry about a circle-shaped plate. Was it a problem before? Not sure… but if it was this pizza invention that saved the day.

6. The pizza fork

For all you messy pizza eaters out there, this pizza invention will help keep you clean and concise. The idea flopped as a Kickstarter campaign, but that shouldn’t stop you from having this ridiculous utensil in your kitchen.

7. Pizza Fashion Hat

This hat would really take the cake (pie?) at a gallery event or even a costume party. It is super creative, alarmingly fashionable and stylish. Looks like it’s also really well done with felt or fuzzy velvet or something like that.

8. Pizza scissors

Who needs one of those old rolling pizza cutters when you can now just cut your pizza and put it in your mouth? This one not only cuts the pizza, but also comes with a mini serving tray – it really does it all.

9. Pizza cupcakes

Whoever invented this pizza invention was probably going to a potluck for a pizza lover. It’s a perfect combination, really. Cupcake + pizza = a salty dream come true. Why aren’t they just called mini pizzas, I’m not sure. Some questions are not meant to be asked.

10. Pizza burger

I want to eat this now. Especially with the fries on the bottom and the pizza on the top. Cheesy burger-pizza fusion delight.

11. Pizza tacos

All the goodness of a pizza, but wrapped up in a taco. It’s as if the staple food of Italy and the staple food of Mexico came together and made a baby and this delicious creation emerged.

12. Pizza Slice Warmer

If you don’t have a convection oven and don’t want to use a microwave, you can get one of these individual slice warmers. I love how it looks like a briefcase that contains priceless gems… but actually contains a pizza.

13. Pizza Deodorizer

We can only hope this air freshener actually smells like pizza. Then, when you get in your car, your craving for a slice will be rewarded with your in-car pizza oven, featured above.

14. Pizza Shaped Shirt Pocket

Who needs a pocket liner when you can have a pizza liner? This pizza pocket shirt is a perfect gift for that person in your life who wants their pizza accessible to them any time of the day.

16. Mint Pizzas

This pizza invention is also giving me wedding engagement vibes, which is cool because pizza lovers really should stick together. These peppermints are shaped like pieces of pizza and even come in a tiny pizza box!

17. Beard Protector

When you have a beard (unlike this guy who doesn’t seem to have a beard), you want to keep it clean off the pizza. This handy beard guard will keep everything from rogue cheese strings to crumbled scabs off your beard. Remove after eating and you’re good to go.

18. Pizza Cheese Cutter

For serious pizza eaters only, these pizza cheese cutters can quickly eliminate that embarrassing moment when the stretchy cheese breaks and slaps your chin. Ideally designed to fit most finger sizes, the cutting blades are nice and sharp, so one cut is enough.

19. Electric Pizza Cutter

Complete with a laser to ensure you cut a straight line (that’s tricky sometimes), this power tool is a great gift option for the tradeswoman in your life.

20. Pizza Cake

This domed, delicious, meaty pizza cake is the perfect birthday surprise for that pizza lover in your life. When it comes to savory desserts, this cheesy beast takes the cake.
