The all-important property sector, AIMIM President?Seen from above,E. when the Paracas people dominated the region So the researchers played a 30-square-kilometer game of connect the dots They used GPS technology to plot the desert’s settlements mounds and 71 geoglyphs for the first time What they saw was unmistakable Certain groups of geoglyphs clearly led directly to particular mounds or settlements suggesting that they served as paths for Paracas people seeking to trade goods or gather for other activities the researchers report online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Because each group of geoglyphs pointed the way to a different settlement Stanish believes the settlements were likely controlled by distinct political or ethnic groups Each group probably built its own set of geoglyphs in order to draw followers throughout the desert to its own trade fairs and other social events he says This discovery not only provides a glimpse of what life was like before the Nazca he adds but it also shows the roots of how society developed when the dominant culture had no real government “They’re converting this landscape into a big theater and the ultimate goal is to bring people together to market exchange goods manufacture goods exchange marriage partners gossip do all the things people like doing And then they’re competing with each other to bring in the most supporters” Stanish says But that wasn’t all the researchers found It appears that the three large mounds had a ceremonial purpose because each was connected to separate pairs of geoglyphs that point directly to the spot where the sun sets on the winter solstice in June There’s no evidence that people lived around the mounds so Stanish suspects the Paracas used them as gathering places for yearly festivities tied specifically to the solstice “When you stand behind the mounds and you’re facing the sunset—and we were there for the solstice—the sun sets right on the mound And if you’re a human being standing there the sun melts right on your head It’s pretty impressive” The new research is “very sound” says archaeoastronomer Anthony Aveni of Colgate University in Hamilton New York who was not involved in the study He added that the findings hint at how astronomical awareness grew over the centuries in the region beginning with recognition that the sun slowly travels back and forth north and south over the course of the year “Here we have the more basic earlier observations being used just simply following one of the extremes of the pendulumlike movement of the sun” Hendrik Van Gijseghem a Nazca archaeologist at the University of Montreal in Canada who was also not involved in the study called the new work “tremendously interesting” He says Stanish and his team’s effort to date the glyphs by connecting them with the Paracas mounds and settlements is convincing “They can actually make a good case that there is a consistent association between well-dated settlements these geoglyphs that are notoriously hard to date and astronomical phenomenon” Now that the mounds’ ceremonial purpose is clear the next step for Stanish’s team is to figure out the exact nature of the social events at the Paracas settlements He plans to further excavate the settlements to look for objects such as beads copper shells and the bones of llamas and alpacas “There’s all sorts of things we can look for to see what kinds of activities were going on”Russia’s protracted aerial bombing campaign in Syria has resulted in significant setbacks for rebel insurgents as well as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria extremist group according to a new report by Reuters The air strikes over the past four months have resulted in Syria’s authoritarian President and Russian ally Bashar Assad gradually regaining his grip on the country with government forces recapturing the northwestern town of Salma in a major victory last week For ISIS the military pressure is

undiagnosed according to the US Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s 2014 National Diabetes Statistics Report released Tuesday The report uses data collected between 2009-2012 as well as national surveys The CDC estimates that the direct and indirect costs of the disease have reached $245 billion with direct medical costs making up 72% of that amount People with type 2 diabetes incur medical costs on average 23 times higher than people without the disease the CDC found Type 2 diabetes is caused by various factors that result in a heightened amount of blood sugar in the body The disease is divided into two types; type 1 diabetics do not produce enough insulin a hormone integral to metabolizing blood sugars while in type 2 the body cannot use the insulin it makes Diabetes can in the most severe cases result in serious complications including heart and kidney disease Contact us at [email protected]
