    Mummies in the CT scanner: disease, beauty tips and jewellery exposed

    Archaeologists have used the latest technology to scan Tamut’s mummified body and discovered a wealth of new information, including that she suffered from furred arteries and may have died of a heart attack or a stroke.

Rwanda Massacre 1994: On April 6, 1994, a group of Hutus began slaughtering the Tutsis in the African country of Rwanda. The genocide left 800,000 dead. The world allowed the slaughter to occur without any intervention. This photo by Annie Leibovitz shows the bloody prints of children attempting to escape slaughter by climbing the walls.

Deir Yassin Massacre - April 9, 1948

Deir Yassin Massacre - April 9, 1948
Or, the other shoe that fell; a symbol of the Palestinian Nakba, which sparked 750,000 Palestinians to flee their homes crying “Deir Yassin!”
This anniversary does not only mark the gruesome massacre carried out by three terrorist gangs against unarmed Palestinian civilians (which the April 13, 1948 New York Times coverage reported Zionist forces went “house-to-house” killing 254 Palestinians, including 25 pregnant women who were bayoneted and 52 children who were maimed in front of their mothers before being beheaded and the mothers slain) but it also marks the beginning of the policy of cleansing Palestine’s villages so as to demolish what was once known as Palestine through depopulation. 
Let’s not forget, however, that Deir Yassin not only had a “good reputation” but it also stood neutral during the 1947-1948 Civil War between Arabs and Jews, and that Deir Yassin had prevented Palestinian fighters from using its land to fight the Zionist terrorists, in addition to the fact that it had signed a non-aggression treaty with the Zionists. Therefore, I believe the moral lesson out of this is that:

“Deir Yasin must always remain a warning and a reminder to every Palestinian, to every Arab as the village that signed a “peace agreement” with the Zionists and ended up being ethnically cleansed, wiped off the map and its residents either savagely massacred or made refugees.”

Lastly, I believe it is only ironic that Deir Yassin, where all of this insanity began, is now the site of Kfaur Shaul Mental Health Centre; an Israeli public psychiatric hospital.

Today is the 66th anniversary of the Deir Yassin Massacre.

    Astrantia major ‘Hadspen Blood’
Astrantia major L. Apiaceae. Gentleman’s Melancholy, Hattie’s Pincushion, Mountain Sanicle, & Black-root Sanicle. It was called Black Masterwort by Gerard (1633) and Imperatoria by Parkinson (1640), ‘Hadspen Blood’ is a cultivar. Masterwort was cultivated as a pot-herb, recommended by Culpeper (1650) for “cold griefs and diseases both of the stomache and body”. The roots were used as a purgative (Lindley, 1838) and an infusion from the whole plant as a diuretic. The botanical name Astrantia is a corruption of the old apothecaries’ name for this plant, Magistrantia, ‘masterwort’, implying its suitability for use only by adepts in herbalism. Distribution: central and eastern Europe. Parkinson (1640) recommended it for colds, dyspnoea, renal stone, inducing menses and for expelling a dead foetus, hysteria (‘strangulation of the mother’), cramps, heart failure, epilepsy, purulent wounds and ulcers, and ‘reviving the abilitie of generation being almost extinct’ which Parkinson doubted, quartain fevers, colic and for purging the brain. Pommet (1712) gave a completely different list: against poisons, stinking breath, malignant and pestilential diseases, vertigo, apoplexy, palsies, toothache, scabby head, and agrees with its use for ulcers. Not used now, but as it is purgative, in the family Apiaceae, it is likely to be toxic. Photographed in the Medicinal Garden of the Royal College of Physicians, London

    Human heart (aortic valve) tissue displaying calcification
Density-dependent colour scanning electron micrograph of the surface of human heart (aortic valve) tissue displaying calcification in the form of spherical particles. The orange colour identifies denser material (calcified material composed of calcium phosphate), while structures that appear in green are less dense (corresponding to the organic component of the tissue). Micrographs were coloured in post-processing by combining images acquired by two modes of image acquisition that use different kinds of electron microscope detector (Secondary electron and Backscatter electron detectors). Horizontal field width is 64 microns

            Nerve fibres in a healthy adult human brain, MRI Bird’s eye (axial) view of nerve fibres in a normal, healthy adult human brain. Brain cells communicate with each other through these nerve fibres, which have been visualised using diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI MRI). Diffusion weighted imaging is a specialised type of MRI scan which measures water diffusion in many directions in order to reconstruct the orientation of the nerve fibres. Since these images are in 3D, colours have been used to represent the direction of the fibres: blue is for fibres travelling up/down, green for front/back, and red for left/right. These patterns of connectivity in the brain are being used to study brain development and developmental disorders such as dyslexia Zeynep M. Saygin, McGovern Institute, MIT/Wellcome Images
