Astrology 201

Have you ever wondered what your compatibility was with others based on their sign? You might be thinking of Astrology, but that's actually called Synastry.

In Synastry, they determine love factors like romance, passion, affection, attraction
using Mars and Venus based on where the planets appear in the sky. I wonder why they don't teach astrology in school (anymore). Without tools like Wikipedia and Google, you wouldn't know about the ancient civilizations that studied the stars at night. They determined that a year is the Earth's rotation around the star and then broke that down to 12+ months, each based on a Moon's lunar cycle (~28 days - also a female's cycle). Later on, they came up with 4 seasons in a year (solstice/equinox), and 4 weeks to a month (or moon phases) thus creating a 7-day cycle. "...and on the 7th day, he rested". Even today's holiday [Easter] is astronomical, determined by the moon and the equinox.

Astrology is frowned upon in public schools because there is a lack of scientific proof. I agree, you cannot narrow down every particular person's traits based on thousands of years of research, but truths must have a theory before it can be proven. 
The signs were originally a universal system describing the different parts of the human anatomy, what a better system than to use apparent "star formations" as symbols, just search "zodiac man". The stars themselves did not have the influence over the parts of the man, they were merely symbols used in a system of understanding. These 12 divisions of "the sky" all correlate to systems in "universally" misunderstood books such as the bible, where we see 12 apostles, 12 tribes of Israel, and so forth. We can see also in various Greek texts as we see in the 12 labors of Hercules and the 12 Olympians. These also correlate to anatomy, where in the skull there are quite specific 12 cranial nerve pairs. The wise individuals who created these systems knew that the brain works by association and by symbols. These particular symbols represented different "vibrational stages" of natural function, but misunderstood by "modern" esoteric minds, eventually faded into obscurity. "Modern Science" also misunderstands alchemy which is actually a similar system, all dealing with symbolically concealed mental processes. - RobC

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Roca de Durazno

Once upon a time there was a boy, and then that boy became a man, and that man had a dream: to retire peacefully.   In his quest to find a place of solace, there were many ups and possible downs.  Initially there had to be upfront capital, and then learning about surprise Central American taxes, overcoming a language barrier... while separated by thousands of miles.  Next he needed a support system: Angel investors. Lawyers for the accountants. And hoes in different area codes.  Finally, he put it to plan. Enter, F-I-R-E: Financial Independence, Retire Early.  Once that was in place, all that's needed from there was just a steady stream of execution.   Step by step, bit by bit, we went to work. Once the donkeys helped carve out rocks from the volcano, we laid the materials, built it up and after dressing it up, now we're in paradise, baby. First floor includes multi-unit bathrooms, electricity, warm showers and the best view in the world from the back porch - WiFi and kitchen
