In Memoriam Joe Ruggier, Canadian poet and poetry publisher:

It is with the greatest regret that we announce the passing of Joe Ruggier on July 8 2018, Canadian poet and poetry publisher, based out of Richmond, B.C.

obituaryJoe

To put my professional relationship with Joe Ruggier into proper context, it is needful for me to clarify that before I started specializing in Mycenaean Linear B linguistics in 2013, subsequent to my unforgettable trip to Greece and Knossos, Crete, in May 2012, I was a poet over decades, and colleague of Joe Ruggier. Two of Joe Ruggier’s scores and scores of highly memorable sonnets, so many of which he dedicated to his belovèd daughter, Sarah, “Stellar Moonrise” (pg. 51), based on John Keat’s stunning masterpiece,“Bright Star” (pg. 51), both here:

Bright Star and Stellar moonrise
 
and “love-sonnet, where shall a body run?” (pg. 94)

love sonnet

were published in international, multilingual sonnet anthology, The Phoenix Rising from the Ashes = Le Phénix renaissant de ces cendres (251 pp.), published  in 2013 by Richard Vallance Janke, Editor-in- Chief, which you can download here

Phoenix Rising from the Ashes


NOTE that the print font size online is very small, but if you download the book, the font increases to normal 10 point size.

In addition to publishing his own poetry and that of hundreds of other well-known and upcoming international poets in his prestigious annual journal, The Eclectic Muse:

Eclectic Muse

Joe Ruggier has himself been widely published in several prominent international poetry e-zines and journals, including Poetry Life and Times:
PL&T

What a terrible shame while it was being used as a gunpowder
magazine, that it was hit by artillery shot and damaged severely and
blown to bits by the Venetians in 1687 as seen here. The buildings of
the Acropolis suffered significant damage during the 1687 siege by the
Venetians in the Morean War, fought between the Republic of Venice
and the Ottoman Empire between 1684 and 1699. Here you see a
black and white rendition of that terrible destruction:

The absurd fallacy of HERSTORY. There is no such thing in any language other than English, and in fact no such thing in English!

herstory is NOT history

If there is anything which raises my hackles, it has got to be the absurd notion adapted by English language feminists alone that the word HISTORY is somehow gender related, when in fact it most certainly is not! English feminists who insist on changing the word history to herstory are displaying the most egregious linguistic ignorance. As anyone with even a smattering of higher education knows beyond a doubt, the English word history is in fact directly derived from the ancient Greek i9stori/a=, which means: inquiry, knowledge, information, science, narration and above all, a story. Now the sheer absurdity of the position of English feminists is blown wide open by the equivalent words for history in practically every other language, for instance, Dutch = geschiedenis, French = histoire, German = Geschichte, Italian = storia, Polish = przeszłość and Portuguese = história, to cite just a few examples. Any French feminist would laugh out loud at the notion that herstory is somehow the same thing as history, since in French the word for her is “son” (masculine gender) and “sa” (feminine gender). Of course, some allophone English feminists will scream aloud that “son” is gender-biased, without realizing in the least that gender in French, and for that matter in any and all inflected languages, including Greek, Latin, German, Russian etc. has nothing whatsoever to do with masculinity or, what is even worse, in their silly “intellectual” construct, sexism! The Dutch and German words, geschiedenis and Geschichte respectively, blow the English feminists’ ridiculous claim right out of the water, let alone the Polish przeszłość. I could cite hundreds of other languages, and the results would always be the same, to wit, the English word history has absolutely nothing to do with masculinity or sexism. So all I have to say to unilingual English feminists, “Get a life!” and at least swallow the truth with grace and dignity.

In the citations below, all italics are mine:

Consider Wikipedia:

wikipedia herstory

 

Herstory is history written from a feminist perspective, emphasizing the role of women, or told from a woman’s point of view. The principal aim of herstory is to bring women out of obscurity from the historical record. It is a neologism coined as a pun with the word “history”, as part of a feminist critique of conventional historiography, which in their opinion is traditionally written as “his story”, i.e., from the masculine point of view.[1] (The word “history”—from the Ancient Greek ἱστορία, or historia, meaning “knowledge obtained by inquiry”—is etymologically unrelated to the possessive pronoun his.

And Rational Wiki:

rational wiki

 

“Herstory” is a neologistic term for “women’s history,” a variant of the Marxist “people’s history”; while a people’s history professes to reinterpret history from the perspective of workers and/or common men, a herstory professes to reinterpret it from the perspective of women. Most feminists don’t use it.

The term is an illustration of its coiners’ belief that regular history is heavily slanted toward men’s point of view, a “systemic bias” reflected in the term history, which they seem to have simply assumed was a portmanteau of “his story”.

Unfortunately, it happens that the English word history is a loan word, derived directly from the Latin historia, which is itself a loan word from ancient Greek.[1] On the other hand, the English word his is derived from a proto-Germanic root,[2] and is not in the least etymologically connected to the first three letters of history. They just happen to sound the same, and only in English. The origin of this term is a testament to the intellectual laziness of extremists in any field, who are quick to grab hold of anything that seems to support their point of view but reluctant to examine it critically.

and Reddit:

redditaskhistorians

Also, I appreciate the title quote is somewhat playful. But I find it extremely irritating – ‘history’ is directly taken from the Greek word historia, roughly translating to ‘inquiry’ or ‘investigation’. ‘His’ and ‘her’ as actual words do not exist in Ancient Greek; words in the language meaning the same thing do exist. But the only reason ‘herstory’ is a thing is because it’s an awful pun based on the conventions of the English language which the word ‘history’ does not follow; it betrays a lack of knowledge of context, a tendency to jump on anything resembling ‘gendered’ words, and it’s a bad pun.

Argentée, can you see her? … and sound asleep


Argentée, can you see her? … and sound asleep

canyouseeme and sound alseep

I suppose that by now some of you tire of seeing photos of Argentée outdoors, but I never do. Here she is in the afternoon of May 27 2018. If you can see her in the first photo, please leave a comment!

Some more astounding photos of Argentée in the woods in Ottawa:

NCC and Argentee

The first 2 photos in the first series of 3 are of the National Capital Commission Parkway, which is forest land running straight through the heart of Ottawa for 40 kilometres (25 miles for Americans). In the third photo we see Argentée sitting in the grass on top of the cliff you see in the first photo.

In the second series of 4 photos, you see Argentée in the grass again, and in the last photo you can see her merrily dragging me back home along the forest path. That is why she is in fact a forest cat. It is her breed. And she knows exactly where she is going.

Argentee in the woods

 

My other 2 cats, Daisy and Shadow, both indoor cats


My other 2 cats, Daisy and Shadow, both indoor cats:

Daisy and Shadow 15052018

Here we have photos of my other two cats, Daisy and Shadow, both indoor cats. Daisy, who is a tortoiseshell, is the same age as Argentée (15), while Shadow is definitely the junior in the family (age 8). All of my cats are females. Daisy sleeps with me all the time, while Shadow always sits on the sofa in my living room. You can see why I call Shadow by her name. She is difficult to see in low light. So I have to watch where I step! To each her own. I am sure you will love them as much as I do.


Universal Medicare rankings by country, with Canada near the top, and the poor performance of the United States:

In the first chart here, we can see the world nations with Universal Medicare, with Canada in third or fourth place, at least according to two sources (although we sometimes rank around tenth):

Universal health care and Canada 3 & 4

In the second chart, we see cost expenditures and cost benefit analyses:

health care spending and USA last

The United States has the worst performance of all developed nations in the world, and sometimes worse than in third world countries. People without private insurance in the USA are stuck. Even people with private insurance more often than not are not covered for pre-existing conditions. For instance, I had my cataracts removed from both eyes at the cost of only $2,500 C per eye (C$ worth about 78 cents US$), whereas in the USA the cost is $4,500 US per eye, and sometimes insurance companies will only pay for the operation, and not the lenses if you are insured.

 


Canada, one of the most amazing and most peaceful countries in the world!

Of all the countries in the world, Canada surely ranks as one of the most beautiful. Canada is the second largest country in the world, covering 4,000 kilometres coast to coast, or 10 % of the circumference of the earth. Our population is a mere 36,000,000, making us one of the least populated countries in the world. China is fourth, with 2 billion inhabitants! But what really makes us stand out is our rank among the top most peaceful countries in the world! We rank 7th. or 8th. all the time, twice even coming in ahead of Switzerland! See the figures below:

First set:

Canada 7 and 8 most peaceful

Second set:

Canada 8 most peaceful versus USA 114

Notice that on the last chart in the second set, Canada ranks eighth and the United States 114! This is because guns are an absolute, hotly contested and irrevocable right in the USA, this situation running counter to all the basic principles of democracy, and accounting for their crime and murder rates, which is 10 times per capita greater than Canadas, where acquiring guns is merely a privilege, as in most democratic nations, not a right by law.

God has surely blessed a very few nations on earth, and we are among the select few.


scenes from Ottawa, Ontario, the capital Canada, one of the most beautiful cities and countries in the world! Our population is 1,000,000, making us the fifth largest city in Canada. Many people compare Ottawa to Geneva.

I have been moderating this blog for years now, but I have never yet shown where I live and what it is like. My neighbourhood is quiet, but then so are almost all of them anywhere in Canada. I live in a little row house with 2 bedrooms, a living/dining-room, a laundry room and a garage. This is the house where Argentée spends all her time outside spring, summer and autumn, except of course when it rains, because she is after all a cat!

In the next 3 posts, I shall tell you some very interesting things about Canada, which is so very much unlike the United States in so many key respects.

Hope you like the photos!

NEVER trust Facebook! DELETE your Facebook account if you value your privacy!

Facebook data breach 2016 & 2018

If the current scandal involving the leaking and sharing of personal 50,000,000+ Facebook accounts with third parties, usually commercial, is any indication of the trustworthiness of Facebook, think again! As the graphic illustration above makes all to clear, millions of Facebook accounts were leaked in 2015 (the graphic above erroneously reads 2016.) I clearly remember that fiasco. But the virus goes much deeper. Facebook has always and without compunction shared the personal data of all of its users (let alone 50 million), unless users instruct Facebook not to do so. And most of us do not instruct Facebook not to do so. The leakage of private data over the years is nothing short of scandalous in the extreme. So I urge you to DELETE your Facebook account if you value your privacy! Make them feel the pinch. Open social networking to other more trustworthy providers. They are out there. Make Facebook pay dearly for this quasi-criminal breach of private data.

The Antikythera mechanism is a 2,100-year-old computer:

Wikipedia
Antikythera mechanism Wikipedia

116 years ago (1902), divers found a chunk of bronze off a Greek island. It has radically changed our understanding of human history.

One hundred sixteen years ago, an archaeologist was sifting through objects found in the wreck of a 2,000-year-old vessel off the Greek island Antikythera. Among the wreck’s treasures, fine vases and pots, jewellery and, fittingly enough, a bronze statue of an ancient philosopher, he found a peculiar contraption, consisting of a series of brass gears and dials mounted in a case the size of a mantel clock. Archaeologists dubbed the instrument the Antikythera mechanism. The genius — and mystery — of this piece of ancient Greek technology is that arguably it is the world’s first computer. If we gaze inside the machine, we find clear evidence of at least two dozen gears, laid neatly on top of one another, calibrated with the precision of a master-crafted Swiss watch. This was a level of technology that archaeologists would usually date to the sixteenth century AD. But a mystery remained: What was this contraption used for? 

To archaeologists, it was immediately apparent that the mechanism was some sort of clock, calendar or calculating device. But they had no idea what it was for. For decades, they debated. Was the Antikythera a toy model of the planets or was it a kind of early astrolabe, a device which calculates latitude?

IMAGE ancient

At long last, in 1959, Princeton science historian Derek J. de Solla Price provided the most convincing scientific analysis of this amazing device to date. After a meticulous study of the gears, he deduced that the mechanism was used to predict the position of the planets and stars in the sky depending on the calendar month. The single primary gear would move to represent the calendar year, and would, in turn, activate many separate smaller gears to represent the motions of the planets, sun and moon. So you could set the main gear to the calendar date and get close approximations for where those celestial objects in the sky on that date. And Price declared in the pages of Scientific American that it was a computer: “The mechanism is like a great astronomical clock ... or like a modern analogue computer which uses mechanical parts to save tedious calculation.”
 
Anticythera mechanism frontal

Antikythera mechanism original
It was a computer in the sense that you, as a user, could input a few simple variables and it would yield a flurry of complicated mathematical calculations. Today the programming of computers is written in digital code, a series of ones and zeros. This ancient analog clock had its code written into the mathematical ratios of its gears. All the user had to do was enter the main date on one gear, and through a series of subsequent gear revolutions, the mechanism could calculate variables such as the angle of the sun crossing the sky. As a point of referencdee, mechanical calculators using gear ratios to add and subtract, didn’t surface in Europe until the 1600s. 

Since Price’s assessment, modern X-ray and 3D mapping technology have allowed scientists to peer deeper into the remains of the mechanism to learn even more of its secrets. In the early 2000s, researchers discovered text in the guise of an instruction manual that had never been seen before, inscribed on parts of the mechanism. The text, written in tiny typeface but legible ancient Greek, helped them bring closure to complete the puzzle of what the machine did and how it was operated.
 
The mechanism had several dials and clock faces, each which served a different function for measuring movements of the sun, moon, stars, and planets, but they were all operated by just one main crank. Small stone or glass orbs moved across the machine’s face to show the motion of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter in the night sky and the position of the sun and moon relative to the 12 constellations of the zodiac. Another dial would forecast solar and lunar eclipses and even, amazingly enough, predictions about their colour. Today, researchers surmise that different coloured eclipses were considered omens of the future. After all, the ancient Greeks, like all ancients, were a little superstitious. 

The mechanism consisted of:
- a solar calendar, charting the 365 days of the year 
- a lunar calendar, counting a 19 year lunar cycle 
- a tiny pearl-size ball that rotated to illustrate the phase of the moon, and another dial that counted down the days to regularly scheduled sporting events around the Greek isles, like the Olympics.  The mechanics of this device are absurdly complicated. A 2006, in the journal Nature, a paper plotted out a highly complex schematic of the mechanics that connect all the gears. 

Researchers are still not sure who exactly used it. Did philosophers, scientists and even mariners build it to assist them in their calculations? Or was it a type of a teaching tool, to show students the math that held the cosmos together? Was it unique? Or are there more similar devices yet to be discovered? To date, none others have been found.

Its assembly remains another mystery. How the ancient Greeks accomplished this astonishing feat is unknown to this day. Whatever it was used for and however it was built, we know this: its discovery has forever changed our understanding of human history, and reminds us that flashes of genius are possible in every human era. Nothing like this instrument is preserved elsewhere. Nothing comparable to it is known from any ancient scientific text or literary allusion,” Price wrote in 1959. “It is a bit frightening, to know that just before the fall of their great civilization the ancient Greeks had come so close to our age, not only in their thought, but also in their scientific technology.”

There are amazing fully operational modern versions of the Antikythera Mechanism, such as these:
