If we can capture energy from the sun, why don't we just put solar panels in space?

Adopting to Southern traditions of processing cotton, a form of assimilation, was a primary divisive issue that spilt the Creek Indians, setting in motion the events leading to the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. These identity split issues would continue to haunt the Creeks even while exiles in Oklahoma Indian Territory. The Creeks would fight again In the US Civil War over whether or not to form a military alliance with the Confederates. Perhaps those who resisted the pro-Confederate faction of Creeks realized they gained even less after they helped Jackson. Funny how the non-Confederate Creeks ended up in a second Trail of Tears of sorts as they fled to Kansas, harassed by pro-Confederate Creeks, and how the Union Army later escorted them back to their "homeland".
If the Red Stick Creeks did more to secure this island, could they have detected the stealth efforts to surround their camp early on? Also, could the Red Sticks have used this as a possibly escape route? Control of the island would have possible given the militant Creeks better control of their left flank, which would have supported escape movement in that direction. If this were the case, could the British fighting the War of 1812 been able to successfully exploit this alternative battle field outcome where enough of the militant Red Stick Creeks survived to pose a continued threat?
I was referring to both groups of Creeks in the clip; those who chose to fight with Jackson, because they thought they would survive by picking the "winning side", and those Creeks who fought against Jackson. It did not matter, Creeks were ultimately sent on the Trail of Tears with the Cherokees and other southern Native American groups. Some remnants of the militant Creeks chose to continue fighting, primarily with the Seminoles.
Reflections on the Battle of Horseshoe Bend: Attacking vulnerable populations. This is a classic tactic in war. When facing stubborn resistance on the field, the easiest way to dislodge such a force is by figuring out how to directly threaten their vulnerable population and supplies that they are protecting.
For the 2010 annual Gathering of The Labyrinth Society in New Harmony, IN, Ben Nicholson and Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths' Cordelia Rose created a labyrinth to accommodate 8 horses at once. Inspired by the poetry of Virgil's Aeneid and the scene depicted on the famous Tragliatella vase they presented a modern adaptation of the ancient rite known as The Lusus Troiae or Trojan Game - a scene not likely to have been witnessed since the decline of the Roman Empire.
During the first half of the 18th century the dispute regarding the succession in the House of Habsburg intensified. In the end the Maria Theresa could secure the Habsburg crown. Another main result of the War of the Austrian Succession was that Prussia with King Frederick the Great emerged as a European great power.
As I explored the supposedly haunted underground tunnel in Goshen, MA, I saw something weird. I noticed that dust particles were falling upward, and they were invisible unless I was looking through the camera. My daughter, who was at the top of the tunnel, if you listen closely says, "Maybe it's the ghost". Immediately after that, at about the 52 second mark, you see a spiral smokey vortex type thing go into the side tunnel. Keep in mind that this side tunnel is 20 or so feet underground and is completely collapsed. So there is no wind down there. I did not notice this anomaly at the time, but later as I watched the video back.

The Government of India has decided to go ahead with its plans for building a shipping channel by breaking the Rama Setu, the oldest man-made bridge of our civilization, a civil engineering marvel of 5076 BCE. This bridge is believed to have been built by Rama and His team. Only if Rama is historical could this bridge be man-made. If the bridge is proved to be man-made, then Rama has to be Historical. This film brings to light the layers of bridge construction and the month and the year when the Rama Setu was built.
Watch it and share it with others. It is not just another story but a 7100 year old engineering marvel of our civilization.

READ BELOW AFTER YOU HAVE WATCHED THE FILM
Many find it hard to digest that Rama is historical and He lived 7100 years ago. This is because we have been brought up with the understanding that Rama lived in Treta Yuga and when one hears the term Treta Yuga, the mind immediately imagines millions of years.
However, study of various texts shows that the terms Yuga, Yojana do not have just one fixed value. Ancient texts talk of over 7 types of Yuga scales ranging from
• 1 year being a Yuga (which is why we celebrate Yugadi every year) to
• 60 years being a Manava Yuga (which is why we have a cycle of 60 years with names for each year) to
• 12000 years being a Ayana Yuga (based on precession of the earth) to
• 432000 years being a Kali Yuga unit from which comes Chathur Yuga of 4320000 years on an astronomical scale.
Valmiki Ramayana does not specify which Yuga scale was used when mentioning Treta Yuga. Hence we cannot assume it to have been the astronomical Yuga scale alone.
The date 7100 years fits in with Treta Yuga in the Ayana scale as well as the astronomic configurations mentioned in the text. Our book Historical Rama details how.
Ramayana is an Itihasa meaning history. So Rama was historical. Rama was also an Avatar, a form in which divine forces had descended.
Historicity need not take away divinity if one understands the true meaning of divinity.
When a text has been classified as itihasa, it mentions facts as they were. So if the text mentions that wood of certain trees were used in building a bridge, it should have been so. Just because we are unable to understand how, need not take away authenticity from the fact and reduce it to a mere figment of imagination.
What exactly was the technology that was used to prevent the wood and the stones from floating away, was beyond the scope of that text. But that need not mean that the people were devoid of technical knowhow. Please see the entire film for comments by marine archaeologists on the technical feasibility in those days.
Research has found evidence of a wood layer as mentioned in the text. It is for our generation now to use this bridge not only as a showpiece for the world's oldest and available engineering marvel of an ancient civilization but also as a specimen to study further the engineering techniques of an ancient knowledge based civilization. These steps could yield lot more revenue and benefits along with undisturbed ecology and thorium than what could be yielded by a small shipping channel with a convoluted and limited use.
The name Bharatha comes from "Bha" meaning knowledge, enlightenment and "ratha" meaning to relish. "Bharatha" is the land where people relish knowledge. Our land was named Bharatha for a reason. It was a knowledge base civilization. Let us not dismiss our texts and their contents as works of imagination or just containing some moral stories. There is relevant knowledge in them as otherwise these texts would not have come this far. It is for us to open our eyes and minds to see it.
If interested to know more, you may read our book Historical Rama and watch a film by the same title which look at the historicity of Rama and this bridge in a wholistic manner using various disciplines. Comments on the same are welcome.
Adam's Bridge-Ramar Bridge Mannar Wonderful Place to see.
The Indian Sanskrit epic Ramayana by Valmiki speaks of a bridge, Setubandhanam, a bridge over the ocean connecting India with Sri Lanka, the land of Ravana, the ruler of men and god. The epic attributes the building of the bridge to the ape army of Rama, who was assisting him in his war against Ravana to win back his wife, Sita.
In this presentation, Alphy Madsen will provide a brief introduction to ternary computing, and why it may be more efficient than binary (and why binary may win out anyway). He will also describe binary and allegedly ternary circuits for common gates, and then show how these gates can then be combined to form memory, arithmetic, and computer instructions, to design a "three-trit"(comparable to four-bit) computer.
