Des arbres de 7000 ans découvert dans la Tamise

first_imgDes arbres de 7.000 ans découvert dans la Tamise Des archéologues ont découvert dans la Tamise la plus vieille structure en bois jamais trouvée à cet endroit. Cette structure, située à proximité immédiate du quartier général des services secrets britanniques date d’il y a 7.000 ans.      C’est dans le sud de Londres, tout près du quartier général des services secrets anglais, que des archéologues ont découvert une très vieille structure en bois, sur les berges de la Tamise, rapporte le Guardian.Les archéologues ont tout de même dû expliquer la découverte de ces piliers de bois aux services de sécurité de la police. Ces derniers étaient intervenus après avoir été avertis que des hommes se déplaçaient dans les marécages aux abords du quartier général des services secrets, le tout en plein brouillard. Un archéologue, Gustave Milne, explique que la police a finalement compris qu’ils ne risquaient pas de faire de gros dégâts avec un trépied, des instruments de mesure et une caméra portée sur l’épaule qui avait été confondue avec un lance-roquettes par les policiers. La structure découverte, en partie abîmée par l’érosion, et datée au carbone 14 s’est révélée dater de 4790 à 4490 avant JC. Les archéologues pensent qu’à cette époque, les piliers avaient été bâtis sur la terre ferme, potentiellement au point culminant d’une petite île. À lire aussiLe pharaon Toutânkhamon n’était sans doute pas celui que l’on croitGustave Milne explique au Guardian que “cette découverte est très intéressante parce que les individus vivant à la période du mésolithique étaient des chasseurs-cueilleurs nomades qui vivaient dans des campements temporaires et pas du tout susceptibles de construire de pareilles structures”. Pour le moment, les chercheurs ne disposent pas d’informations suffisantes pour déterminer si, à l’origine, ces piliers étaient alignés pour former une droite ou un cercle ni si ils supportaient une quelconque plateforme. Toutefois, le fait que le site se situe à l’endroit précis où l’Effra, une petite rivière, se jette dans la Tamise est un élément important pour les scientifiques et surtout pour les experts du musée de Londres. D’autant que divers objets comme des poteries datant de la même période que les piliers ont été retrouvés à proximité du pont Vauxhall.Et Gustave Milne de conclure, que lui et son équipe comptent en apprendre davantage si James Bond les laisse travailler.Le 6 janvier 2011 à 15:16 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Court Approves Journal Registers Reorg Plan

first_imgMeanwhile, Connecticut attorney general Richard Blumenthal blasted the ruling, saying in a statement that it allows JRC executives to receive more than $1.3 million in “blatantly undeserved bonuses for shutting down newspapers and laying off employees.” Blumenthal said his office is reviewing the judgment to “determine whether further action is appropriate.”Seeking Debt ReliefJRC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February. The plan reduced the company’s debt by approximately $420 million, and provided for a $25 million revolving credit facility upon its emergence from credit protection.Earlier this year, JRC shut down several of its weekly newspapers in New York that were published by its published by its Taconic Press group. The company also closed a number of weeklies in Connecticut, including the Shoreline Times and Pictorial Gazette.In addition to 20 daily newspapers, JRC publishes Connecticut Magazine, which carries a monthly circulation of 84,417.

JRC said it expects to emerge from bankruptcy protection within the next few weeks as a private company, under its current management.last_img read more

Nevada County Opens Industrial Park at Hawthorne Army Depot

first_imgA rural county in western Nevada is pinning its hopes for economic growth on a newly opened industrial park inside Hawthorne Army Depot.On Tuesday, state and local leaders and Army officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Hawthorne Technology and Industrial Center, which the Mineral County Economic Development Authority is marketing to industrial users that require large amounts of space such as buffer areas. A fireworks firm is one of two companies that already have agreed to lease space at the new business park, reported KOLO TV. The other tenant is a logistics company that needs space to store thousands of rail cars. The county also is trying to attract manufacturers and companies working in the unmanned aerial vehicle industry. One selling point is the site’s access to West Coast markets.“It’s a game-changer having a more-than-16,000-acre certified economic development site,” said Shelley Hartmann, director of the Mineral County Economic Development Authority.The project takes advantage of the Armament Retooling and Manufacturing Support (ARMS) program, which encourages the commercial use of underutilized facilities owned by the Army and managed by contractor operators.“I think this will be fantastic,” said Lt. Col. Gregory Gibbons, who partnered with local officials on the project. “We do it in many other facilities throughout the Army and throughout the country,” he said.

But it couldn’t remain unchallenged for long as Fortnite and Knives Out debuted on the mobile platform, generating more revenue than PUBG Mobile. But there is another rival in the making that poses an even bigger threat PUBG Mobile.The iconic battle royale shooter game, Call of Duty (CoD), is now ready to make its way into the mobile space after a successful run on PC, Xbox and PlayStation. By launching Call of Duty Mobile, Activision’s popular title is in for a huge win with its loyal fan base. Instead of being confined to where the PC, Xbox or PlayStation is, CoD Mobile will let players enjoy the gameplay on the go.The official Call of Duty Mobile trailer promises intense gameplay, borrowing most of the CoD experience from its existing platforms. Call of Duty Mobile also includes multiplayer modes such as Free4All, Search & Destroy, Team Deathmatch and Frontline. Players can also play as iconic CoD characters like Price and Ghost and go on solo combat against zombies. Call of Duty Mobile also gets classic maps such as Nuketown and Crash.

In a moment no Costa Rican then alive will ever forget, in Costa Rica’s old National Stadium in Sabana Park, a free kick found Pastor Fernández, who headed it into the goal during a match against El Salvador.

pictwittercom/AgqlhU0GEz Rihanna (@rihanna) January 25 2016 Rihanna kicks off the Anti World Tour next month in San Diego Calif Write to Nolan Feeney at nolanfeeney@timecomAbout two years ago Lady Gaga looked defeated The singer had staked her reputation on Artpop her 2013 album that was intendedas she kept telling her fansless as a collection of songs than as a statement of purpose The only problem Consumed with big ideas about fame Lady Gaga had forgotten what actually made her famous Sure her outlandish costuming kept people talking but only after they’d started talking about her classically built songs Artpop lacked a smash-hit single or really any tunefulness at all; critics shrugged and the album underperformed What happened over the next two years after the Artpop fizzle is a master class in reinvention The singer went back to basics releasing an album of jazz duets with Tony Bennett (for which she won a Grammy) and performing with full-throated drama-kid vocals at the Oscars There’s something inspiring about her resourcefulness; a star who was once so successful that she could enlist Beyoncé as her supporting act sees her peak of fame in the rear-view mirror but refuses to go quietly without trying every possible remedy But for the umpteenth time in the past couple of years Gaga is doing something entirely new She’s appearing as an actress on American Horror Story whose season premiere airs Wednesday night None of these things directly relate to Gaga’s career as a pop performer in the vein of Beyoncé Katy Perry or Taylor Swift But all of them add to the sense that she may just grow up to be the thing her generation didn’t know it needed: An all-around entertainer See the Characters of American Horror Story: Hotel Lady Gaga as The Countess Frank Ockenfels—FX Kathy Bates as Iris Frank Ockenfels—FX Angela Bassett as Ramona Frank Ockenfels—FX Matt Bomer as Donovan Frank Ockenfels—FX Finn Wittrock as Tristan Duffy Frank Ockenfels—FX Sarah Paulson as Sally Frank Ockenfels—FX Wes Bentley as John Lowe Frank Ockenfels—FX Cheyenne Jackson as Will Drake Frank Ockenfels—FX Chloe Sevigny as Alex Lowe Frank Ockenfels—FX Denis O’Hare as Liz Taylor Frank Ockenfels—FX Evan Peters as MrMarch Frank Ockenfels—FX Mare Winnigham as Miss Evers Frank Ockenfels—FX Shree Crooks as Scarlett Lowe Frank Ockenfels—FX 1 of 13 Advertisement Read More: Lady Gagas Performance at the Oscars Could Redefine Her Career The new season of American Horror Story subtitled Hotel has been marketed around Lady Gaga’s role; this is understandable both because of how novel such an acting gig is for a music-world star and because AHS‘s longtime resident diva Jessica Lange has left the premises In the absence of the most game performer ever to win two acting Oscars someone has to carry the torch for divadom And the singer rises to the challenge in her own way In her time onscreen as the notional owner of a mysterious haunted hotel Lady Gaga speaks in a vaguely European unplaceable accent; call it actress-ese She makes textual all of her long-running subtextual references to drugs and sex by setting up lines of cocaine onscreen and engaging in a fatal ménage à quatre Without spoiling the events of the episode she’s evidently willing to take part in the carnage that the show demands of its participantsindeed she runs the hotel in which the show’s deaths occurand she’s so far less “morally ambiguous” than “morally despicable” She is evidently the Big Bad of the season and she is both unconcerned with career repercussions if she goes Bad and conditioned by years in the spotlight to go Big But what’s most surprising about the first episode of American Horror Story is how little it feels like the Lady Gaga Show A star at her level of fame who wanted to work on TV could perhaps demand her own variety show on a broadcast network; the last big pop star who made herself quite so available on weekly TV was Cher of Sonny and But it’s even more standard for a popstar like Gaga would go back to work on the next album and put ideas of TV appearances entirely aside until the next Grammy ceremony or Super Bowl halftime show When there’s finally vocal music on AHS it’s a dark emo song perfectly suiting the visuals of Gaga committing murder This isn’t Artpop promo or hype for whatever is the next record; something longer-range is happening here Not merely has Gaga deigned to work on basic cable but she’s offscreen for much of the first episode; both Kathy Bates and Wes Bentley in particular feel far more central to the proceedings This is both a laudable acknowledgment of her acting experience relative to the more experienced castin her time onscreen so far she’s been asked to be “imperious” a tone she can masterand something that feels deeply weird One of the most talked-about singers of the decade is now running for Best Supporting Actress But as the episode wears on it’s apparent that sidelining herself even in her own season of American Horror Story is a clever move for Gaga On American Horror Story she’s sublimated herself to someone else’s vision saving for another day whatever she may have in store in her pop career (Promoting the series Gaga has lately put the outré fashions back in the closet and her onscreen garb is not much more ornate; her simple dress at the Emmys was safe for vegans with absolutely no meat) This suits Gaga well at the present moment: When it comes to her particular set of skills on TV a little goes a long way Indeed by allowing Kathy Bates to take charge and reappearing only for enigmatic compelling moments of accented bossiness (seriously is she pretending to be French German) Gaga is doing the same thing she’s been doing since the fate of her last pop album became clear when she popped in for surprise moments of jazz mastery or Oscars glamour For both her devoted fans and the uninitiated she ends up doing something that the nonstop album-promotional cycle never allowed her to do: Leave us wanting more See These Portraits of Stars Before They Became Really Famous Julie AndrewsPhotographed for TV Times in 1977 If you want to get ahead get a hat as the English rose demonstrated in the stage version of My Fair Lady and then on screen in Mary Poppins Here she was reflecting on her image after raiding a dressing-up box for this fancy titfer Time Inc UK/TV Times Maggie SmithPhotographed for TV Times in 1965 Downton’s acerbic Dowager Countess would surely have something to say about her real-life self being photographed on a beach The following year Dame Maggie received her first Oscar nomination for playing Desdemona in a film of Othello Time Inc UK/TV Times Clive OwenPhotographed for TV Times in 1990 Several years before becoming one of Hollywood’s leading men the actor was snapped on the set of the ITV drama Chancer The hit show charted the adventures of a wide-boy financial adviser Time Inc UK/TV Times Roger MoorePhotographed for TV Times in 1968 just before the final series of The Saint Time Inc UK/TV Times Ian McKellenPhotographed for TV Times in 1982 at his London riverside home Time Inc UK/TV Times Paul NewmanPhotographed for TV Times in 1974 The motorsport fanatic was snapped during an interview about his love of cars He first took to the track for real after being cast in a 1969 racing film called Winning A few years later he came second in the famous Le Mans 24-Hour Race Time Inc UK/TV Times Emma Thompson and Kenneth BrannaghPhotographed for TV Times in 1989 The young couple who married that year were snapped for an ITV adaptation of Look Back in Anger Time Inc UK/TV Times Tom Jones Photographed for TV Times in 1987 The Welsh heart-throb was a consistent cover favorite for the magazine happily posing here in swimming trunks in front of his Bel Air mansion Time Inc UK/TV Times Karl Malden and Michael DouglasPhotographed for TV Times in 1974 The crime-fighting duo from the classic US series The Streets of San Francisco Time Inc UK/TV Times Rupert Everett Photographed for TV Times in 1987 Looking mean moody and magnificent the former model posed for this shot by Patrick Lichfield to mark a screening of the film that made his name Another Country Time Inc UK/TV Times Joanna LumleyPhotographed for TV Times in 1976 Only months later she’d instruct a hairdresser to cut and colour her hair ‘like a prep schoolboy’ thus creating The New Avengers blonde Purdey bob that would cause a copycat frenzy at salons nationwide Time Inc UK/TV Times Joan CollinsPhotographed for TV Times in 1971 The age-defying beauty invited the magazine for an exclusive look around her palatial home in the year she was divorced from second husband Tony Newley Racy film romp The Stud and US soap superstardom were still to come Time Inc UK/TV Times Helen Mirren Photographed for TV Times in 2005 after winning the TV Times Award for its readers’ All-Time Favourite Actress Time Inc UK/TV Times Elton John Photographed for TV Times in 1977 Having already achieved superstardom on both sides of the Atlantic Elton reaches the pinnacle of his career appearing on The Muppet Show in Oct 1977 But Kermit still has to persuade the reluctant rocker to perform his hit ‘Benny and the Jets’ Time Inc UK/TV Times The Rolling Stones Photographed for TV Times in 1965 at the ITV studios in London This was the year of their huge hit ‘Satisfaction’ Time Inc UK/TV Times The Avengers (Diana Rigg & Patrick Macnee) Photographed for TV Times in 1964 An iconic shot taken when Diana Rigg took over from Honor Blackman in the ‘spy-fi’ classic The name Emma Peel derived from the writers’ attempts to create a character with Man Appeal Time Inc UK/TV Times 1 of 16 Advertisement Contact us at editors@timecomcom. authorities revoked her passport once again.
