When Greece Became Greece

Mainland Greece was living in small settlements of mud-brick houses, while Crete housed a sophisticated civilization we call the Minoans. They had skilled artisans and craftsmen who traded widely in the Aegean, Mediterranean, and sometimes beyond. They built palaces ruled by kings. They wrote in what we today call Linear A. Greece itself was a backwater, the recipient of traded goods but not their creator. Then around 1,600 BCE, the mainlanders suddenly began creating almost unimaginable treasures in their newly-lavish tombs. A light had turned on.

Mainlanders’ population swelled; settlements grew in size, number, and apparent wealth. During this time, elites began creating the first inklings of something beyond minor regional chiefdoms. The mainland of Greece was at the start of what would become a palatial civilization in about 100 years. One way we know this is what they left behind: ruling elites became more cosmopolitan with more diverse and lavish goods in their tombs. Their grave goods showed their increased reach and power. These were who we would come to call the Myceneans of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey.

“They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it.”

- Lakota chief Red Cloud (1822 - 1909). He was a widely respected Lakota Sioux warrior who led a successful campaign in 1866–1868 known as Red Cloud’s War over control of the Powder River Country in northeastern Wyoming and southern Montana. Red Cloud also led his people in the transition to reservation life after the Treaty of Fort Laramie in 1868. He continued to advocate for his people’s interests, including traveling to DC to meet with President Grant and negotiating strongly with various Indian Agents.

January 28th 1813: Pride and Prejudice published

On this day in 1813, British author Jane Austen published her novel Pride and Prejudice. Austen, born in Hampshire in 1775, began writing as a teenager. Her brother Henry encouraged her writing talent, and helped negotiate with a publisher to ensure her work would be shared with the public. Jane Austen’s first novel, Sense and Sensibility, was published in 1811. Pride and Prejudice appeared three years later to critical praise, which was particularly important to Austen as she called this novel her ‘own darling child’. Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, and her relationship with Mr. Darcy. Elizabeth’s father wants her to marry a wealthy man, but the novel focuses on marrying for love rather than due to social pressures. Austen’s later works include Mansfield Park and Emma, solidifying her status as one of Britain’s most prolific and well-loved writers. However, Austen published her work anonymously, so she was not a household name during her lifetime. Jane Austen died in 1817, two hundred years ago, aged 41. She left two novels - Persuasion and Northanger Abbey - which were published posthumously. Jane Austen’s novels are still enjoyed today for their witty insight into social mores in eighteenth century England.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife”

Geneticist launches bid for US Senate

Geneticist launches bid for US Senate:

mindblowingscience:

In the week since President Donald Trump took the oath of office, scientists have taken to social media en masse, decrying the new administration’s plan to dismantle climate regulations, reports that the administration has censored government scientists’ speech and the coining of the term “alternative facts.”

But Michael Eisen, a geneticist at the University of California, Berkeley, thinks that the situation requires more drastic action. So on 25 January, he announced on Twitter that he will run for US Senate in 2018.

Eisen, who is best known as an advocate for free access to scientific publications and as co-founder of the Public Library of Science (PLoS) journals, may have a viable path to elected office. Dianne Feinstein, the 83-year-old senator from his state, California, has indicated that she might not run for re-election in 2018.

Nature caught up with Eisen to ask him about his plans. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
