  1. Re: Social inequality already in Bronze Age Households in Central Europe (Bavaria, Lechfeld)

    It's a possibility suggested by the authors.

    Some context:

    In addition, only one maternal lineage (mtDNA) lasts longer than a single generation.

  2. Re: Two basic questions about noise due to electrical set-up

    If you have everything connected reverse polarity in your system, it usually isn't a problem, but if something is reverse and something isn't, it can cause problems like amplifying noise you don't...

    The fundamental frequency of that noise is twice the rate of your local alternating current = usually 60 Hz in the North America, 50 Hz in Europe. I believe the ultimate cause is magnetostriction -...

    The style looks New Kingdom rather than later to me, but I could be wrong considering Ancient Egypt's artist conservatism. There should be more information available on Saturday.
  7. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    While it’s no great effort, I’d say that speaking out against irrational authoritarianism and mob justice demonstrates a mild lack of complacency.

  8. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    Nah, if you read the letter, the Cornell president says "I urge our community to not be complacent", and English is obviously not Baleka Mbete's first language. Maybe it makes sense somewhere along...
  9. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    Complacent in that context is still referring to undue self-satisfaction, as in saying it's too soon to be congratulating ourselves about having solved the problem, there is still work to be done....

    In this case, it seems I just didn't try hard enough the first time. The actual paper doesn't say much, but there is a lot of supplemental material to dig through. She is local, or at least probably...

    The logic is, we found no offspring, therefore she was not a wife, but that could just be holes in the data.

    Well yeah, I noted that in the post Gromovnik is responding to:

    Although, as I also said in an earlier post, I had no idea until recently that a noose was ever considered a racist symbol.
  14. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    The guy does come across as a bit odd, but wanting someone's life destroyed for behaving oddly is just as :wub:ed up.

    BWB's post expresses my view on that well-enough:
  15. Re: Social inequality already in Bronze Age Households in Central Europe (Bavaria, Lechfeld)

    That's a complicated question. By necessity, the answer has to really be based on anthropology more than archaeology (although in the US, archaeology is a sub-field of anthropology).

  17. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    Apparently the cognate in Portuguese has some meanings the English word does not (seriously, I looked it up). In English, "complacent" primarily refers to undue self-satisfaction. In any case, I now...
  18. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    I think the word you're looking for is "complicit". The "logic" of your assertion results in the ridiculous conclusion that if one believes a white person hanging a noose on another white person's...

  22. Re: Illinois college student charged with hate crime for placing noose on campus

    Apparently you're unaware that people of any race can be hung. One can even threaten to hang someone of their own race. As such, if someone hangs a noose in someone else's yard or on their door, it's...
