Melliodora 9/11

LIVE Global coronavirus deaths pass 900,000 BBC

First Known When Lost: Heraclitus in Japan.

Asukagawa means "Asuka River." However, McCullough translates it as: "the River of Tomorrow."  She provides this explanation:  "The first part of the river name Asuka is homophonous with asu ('tomorrow').  This famous poem made the Asuka and its vagrant channel a symbol of change."  (Ibid, page 205.)
"The River of Tomorrow" is quite lovely, isn't it? 


There is no better way to learn how the household economy works than to take part in the whole day guided tour at Melliodora. Situated in the Victorian central highlands, Melliodora is one of the best examples of working cool-temperate climate permaculture in the country.  At Melliodora you can see how permaculture can produce an abundance of food and other yields from a beautiful living environment.

What Sources Will Historians Of The Future Use To Make Sense Of 2020?

A child today will be a historian of 2020 in the future. What sources will they turn to? How will they verify scattered memories? How will people tell the story of the tumultuous times that we’re living in today? 2020 may be a year for the history “books” but of course, the record we leave behind will be digital in manner. – The Conversation

September 11 anniversary: How to watch the NYC ceremony online

On September 11, 2001, two planes slammed into the World Trade Center towers, and another two planes crashed—one into the Pentagon, the other in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. In total, 2,977 victims died that day and another 25,000 were injured. Every year since, memorial services have been held to remember the lives lost in 9/11—and this year is no different.
