Hieroglyphs: Unlocking Ancient Egypt will be on display from October 13.

October 02, 2022

The Rosetta Stone has temporarily moved to a special exhibition at the British Museum to celebrate 200 years since the hieroglyphics were decoded.

It is the first time the ancient object has been moved since it was installed in the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery 18 years ago.

In 1799, the inscribed slab was discovered by a group of soldiers and later it became the key that unlocked the mysterious hieroglyphic script of ancient Egypt.

The stone will be the focus of the British Museum’s Hieroglyphs: Unlocking Ancient Egypt exhibition which runs from October 13 to February 19.

Exhibition curator Ilona Regulski told the PA news agency: “We are telling the story of the deciphering of Egyptian hieroglyphs that happened 200 years ago, so that is what we are celebrating. .

“The Rosetta Stone is crucial to the history of decipherment because it provided the key to deciphering hieroglyphics.

“We couldn’t really tell the story of deciphering hieroglyphics without the Rosetta Stone, so we decided it would have a good place in the exhibition.

“Furthermore, it gives us the opportunity to contextualize the story a bit better and tell more complete stories about the stone’s role in decipherment, but also about its arrival in the British Museum.”

Ms Regulski said the Rosetta Stone was in the Louvre museum in Paris “for a very brief period” in 1972 and was also moved during World War II for its protection, but has not been moved for 18 years.

Speaking about the time it took to organize the exhibition, she said: “I think about three years. I think I started doing research in 2019.

“You build the story in your head as a curator, and then at some point, I think a little over a year later, we kind of got the core team together.

“Now it’s quite a large team because we’re building the exhibit. I am very excited.

Ms Regulski, who is also curator of written culture at the British Museum, said they were replacing the Rosetta Stone with a temporary exhibition.

“We are of course taking this opportunity of the empty storefront to do a new display and it’s almost ready,” she said.

“It is an opportunity to rethink this whole exhibition and this space, which is really a crossroads between different cultures of the ancient world.

“We’re using this as a sort of pilot to see how we can approach the history of the different interconnected cultures of the ancient world.”

The immersive display, which will include digital and audio media, will bring together more than 240 objects retracing the race to decipher.

A featured item in the exhibit will feature “the Enchanted Pool” – a large black granite sarcophagus covered in hieroglyphics from around 600 BCE.

The hieroglyphics were believed to have magical powers and bathing in the basin could offer relief from the torments of love.

Likewise, Queen Nedjmet’s 3,000-year-old Illustrated Book of the Dead will feature alongside a set of canopic vessels that held the organs of the deceased.

It will be the first time a set of jars have been brought together since the 1700s, the museum said.

Aberuait’s mummy bandage from the Louvre Museum in Paris, which has never been displayed in the UK, will also be on display.

Speaking about her aspirations for the exhibit, Ms. Regulski added, “I hope visitors will, of course, learn about ancient Egypt. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to show new research on one of the most amazing ancient civilizations.

“I hope they understand that ancient Egypt was a distant culture but is also relevant to understanding human practices today, we have a lot in common with ancient people.

“I tried to show that by deciphering the hieroglyphics we really get a glimpse of ancient Egypt that wasn’t possible before.

“We understand much better now how ordinary people lived, how they liked to write, because most people couldn’t read or write of course, so they would have enjoyed the written culture by listening to it, by performances and quotes .

“I really hope to get the message across that behind the hieroglyphs there is a spoken language, it was a way to communicate with each other.”

A Reflection for Friday of the Twenty-Sixth Week in Ordinary Time

Have you ever in your life ordered in the morning
and shown at dawn its place
To seize the ends of the earth,
until the wicked are shaken from its surface? (Job 38:12-13)

The theme of today’s readings seems to be “Who do you think you are?” In the Gospel, Jesus chastises all those who have seen the works of the Lord but refuse to recognize their importance. And in the first reading, God tears Job apart for complaining about the sufferings he endured.

This is not an easy message! Particularly in the first reading, God seems like a very bad guy. He allowed Satan to first destroy Job’s livelihood and then kill his whole family as a test of humanity’s ability to remain faithful, then when questioned by Job, the best he can say is, “Who are you to question me?” It’s pretty much the ancient deity’s equivalent of “Because I said so,” and the kind of response we have every right to get upset about. If we believe that God made a promise to be there for his people (and this is the heart of the Old Testament story, and our own faith too), he must do much better than that.

In any meaningful relationship, sometimes taking the risk to say what you really think and feel is in itself the way out of the wilderness.

Believe it or not, the book of Job actually represented an evolution of Jewish thought on suffering. Prior to Job and some other wisdom literature, suffering was understood as an indication of wrongdoing. If you got sick, died in childbirth, or had a series of other terrible misfortunes, you must have committed some kind of serious sin. Your pain was on you.

But Job does nothing wrong; in fact, he is first presented as “blameless and upright”. (Job 1:1) Rather than being our fault, suffering is understood as something that happens sometimes. This is the truth that God is meant to express in our reading, albeit in a very poor way: Why does suffering happen? Who knows? It’s just.

If this reality angers us, or if Job’s God’s “Shut up and eat your breakfast” tone infuriates us, well, maybe that’s a good thing. Most of us have been taught that being angry with God is taboo, at least a sin and at worst “Look down because lightning is coming” dangerous. But we’ve had tough times, some of us really tough times, or we’ve seen people we love being ravaged by disease or addiction in ways that just seem cruel or malicious. It is natural in these times to turn to God, whom we hear again and again at church is there for us, loves us, walks with us, and asks, “Well? What about? Where are you now that we really need you?

We also do it in good company. In the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, Jesus himself looks up from the cross to marvel at the absence of God.

Will God have a better answer to our questions than to Job? I would like to hope so, given how we see Jesus treating people in the Gospels. But like in any meaningful relationship, sometimes taking the risk to say what you really think and feel is in itself the way out of the wilderness. What is shared is no longer carried alone; in fact, it is often published.

The president of one of the largest seminaries in the Southern Baptist Convention resigned last Friday, less than four years after taking office.

Adam Greenway was elected president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2019, hoping he would help the school recover from the controversial tenure of former president Paige Patterson, who was fired in 2018 for mishandling the allegations of abuse.

Greenway resigned at a meeting of the seminary’s executive committee. He will take on a new role on the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, according to an announcement from the seminar.

“In receiving President Greenway’s resignation, we express our deepest gratitude for his more than three and a half years of service to his alma mater,” said Danny Roberts, chairman of the Southwest Board of Directors. “He came to Southwestern Seminary during a difficult time of transition and worked tirelessly to bring the institution to serve the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention well.”

Longtime SBC leader OS Hawkins, a Southwest alum who recently retired as chairman of GuideStone Financial Services – the insurance and pension arm of the SBC – has been named interim chairman.

In a statement, Greenway said he was unprepared for the enormous “reputational, legal and financial realities” facing the seminary, which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.



Greenway said he and his wife, Carla, are ready to embrace his new role at IMB.

“We have done our best to serve Southern Baptists by helping position our seminary for the future, but there is much, much work to be done,” he said. “Nevertheless, in the Providence of God, we here feel a release from our duties.”

“We will continue to serve Southern Baptists as we have throughout our life and ministry,” Greenway said in a statement. “We believe that our next mission is not a departure but a continuation of the journey that God has always led us on.”

Located in Fort Worth, Texas, southwest reported having 2,331 students in the 2021-2022 academic year, according to the Association of Theological Schools. Many of those students were part-time, as the school reported a full-time equivalent enrollment of 1,105 in 2021-22, compared to 1,414 in 2019-20.

According to SBC’s 2022 reporting book, the school’s projected operating budget for the current fiscal year is US$37,367,884, at a time when its tuition revenue is declining, forcing Southwestern to lean more about its endowment and gifts.


We rely on our readers to fund Sight’s work – become a funder today!


In 2021, Southwestern and Baylor University for follow-up allies of former Southwestern President Patterson for control of a foundation that had been established to benefit both schools. The directors of this foundation had changed their internal rules in order to send funds to a charity headed by Patterson. The school also accused Patterson of stealing seminary property and confidential donor information in its 2021 report to the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention.

A graduate of Southwestern, Greenway served as dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism and Ministry at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary before being elected president of Southwestern.

He is one of a series of heads of SBC entities who have left office in recent years, often amid controversy. Others include former SBC executive committee chairs Ronnie Floyd and Paige Patterson; David Platt, former chairman of the SBC’s International Mission Board, who resigned after a troubled tenure that included the loss of nearly 1,000 missionaries due to budget cuts; and Russell Moore, former chairman of the SBC Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, a critic of former President Donald Trump.

“These are incredibly difficult days in the life of our denomination,” Greenway said in his resignation statement.

The publication of irreverent humor CRAZY Magazine reaches a milestone and to celebrate the occasion, he calls upon powerful talents such as Jordan Pele and “Weird Al”Yankovic. MAD turns 70, and a special new release promises to be an assortment of laughs and self-reflection.


CRAZY Magazine began decades ago in the early 1950s and was created by cartoonist and editor Harvey Kurtzman with editor William Gaines. The magazine was known for its quirky and humorous content consisting of parodies of pop culture and politics, satirical articles and comic strips. Whereas CRAZY Magazine providing counterculture entertainment for years, the publication cut back on new content beginning in 2018, and new issues began to feature more reprinted material. However, year-end specials and the like distributed by MAD still largely consist of new material created specifically for the bigger issues.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

So for their 70th anniversary release, MAD indeed offers its fans brand new content in honor of their golden age. MAD details announced for the next CRAZY Magazine #28alias the MAD special anniversary issue. As always, the majority of the material in the book comes from the “Usual Gang of Idiots”, but for their anniversary, CRAZY Magazine adds considerable star power to their gang. In addition to the classic material, a new original from comedic parody artist Weird Al celebrates “longtime MAD contributor and creator of the MAD Fold-In Al Jaffee, with artwork by Ed Steckley“. Comedian and director Jordan Peele also pays tribute to MAD Magazine, which will feature the parody cover of MAD recently seen in his feature film. Nope. MAD regulars such as Johnny Sampson, Sergio Aragonés and Dick DeBartolo will also have contributions for the memorable celebration of crazypeople the story.

Although the cover humorously promises “70% new material“, it’s pretty good for CRAZY Magazine Nowadays. After the acquisition of Time Warner by AT&T, MAD was the victim of layoffs and restructuring and even had to stop its distribution on newsstands. They also had to stop pumping out new material at their previous pace, with new books consisting of almost nothing but reprints. Needless to say, these few years have been tragic for the company so associated with humor.

But even MAD would be crazy to pass up the opportunity to celebrate a seven-decade anniversary. Not all publications have reached fifty, let alone seventy. In a world where readership is beginning to skew digital, CRAZY Magazine deserves to be happy to have come this far. Even though their special is not Filled only with new material, the fact that they brought in notable comedic talent, as well as their most well-known contributors, shows just how MAD still believe in their product. Fans can’t wait to see what Jordan Pele and Weird Al bring to the post can see for themselves when crazypeople special anniversary edition on October 4, 2022.

The value of the property you own will never decrease. The depreciated value of a new car is an example of an investment that could leave you with little or nothing of value. Other examples include stock market investments, the value of which can drop to zero. You can expect your money to appreciate in the real estate market, whether you have invested it in residential or commercial property.

For me, it’s about helping to build a community of generational richness and sustainability. Celebrities and musicians have cultural ears, so I became a famous real estate agent. I didn’t do it for the fame, I did it to inspire and motivate as many people as possible by selling houses to famous people. Famous people have a large following that admires them. Maybe a celebrity client of mine could inspire someone to take a different path with their resources or get into the world of investing through real estate. I was recently able to complete a real estate transaction for multi-platinum music producer ATL Jacob.

These agreements give young people hope that anything is possible when you believe in something and do the work to make it happen.

Plaster magazine, helmed by The Artist Room founder Milo Astaire and fashion photographer Finn Constantine, has been booming for four issues, with stars including artists Kenny Scharf, Harland Miller and Kudzanai-Violet Hwami. But unlike traditional magazines, each issue is entirely dedicated to the cover star and is formatted like a collectible poster.

We wanted to do a project together that could be special,” says Astaire, who grew up with Constantine in London. We had this idea for a poster magazine that stemmed from a kung fu magazine I collected called Weekly Kung Fuwhich was created at the end 70s.” The magazine was started by legendary publisher Felix Dennis (fun fact: he was also the first to say cunt” live on British television), which distributed the issues in poster format on Oxford Street for around two pounds.

I loved the immediacy of this concept and how you could unfold this magazine, read about Bruce Lee, and then you’d have a poster on your wall,” says Astaire. I thought it was such a simple idea, and that we could transpose it into contemporary art.

While living together just before the pandemic, the duo approached Yorkshire-born artist Harland Miller to launch the first issue of Plaster. Known for his large-scale revamps of classic Penguin book covers with titles like narcissist seeks similar”, Astaire and Constantine wanted to embody a punk, DIY attitude. Naturally, Miller was down, and with the help of graphic designer Josh Crumpler, the first issue was made. And then Covid came along, so we had to pull it back a bit,” says Astaire. We got bored six or seven weeks later, and we just published it and sent it to everyone. That was the basis of it all, really.

Since, Plaster became a modern-day fanzine influenced by punk and rock n’ roll zines the duo read growing up. A big part of what they do is embrace the fandom and explore the minds of the people they look up to. We wanted to have the opportunity to dive into their practices, which is why each issue is based on a person”, explains Constantine. The format fits the idea in terms of eight pages, one poster, one cover, one artist. Everything revolves around them and their practice. A deep dive for a fan, basically.

HBO/BINGE

Moon of blood was to take place thousands of years before the events of game of thronescontrary to the derisory 200 years between Dragon House and game of thrones, and would cover several topics.

here is the official synopsis:

“The series chronicles the descent of the world from The Golden Age of Heroes in its darkest hour. And only one thing is certain: horrible secrets of Westerosthe story of the true origin of the white walkersthe mysteries of the Orient, to the Starks of legend…that’s not the story we think we know.

If you forgot the White Walkers, they were the big bad guys in the last season of game of thrones (until you-know-who loses your mind). It is a group of zombie-like creatures that were created by the children of the forest when the first men originally arrived in Westeros.

You might be wondering, Children of the Forest? First men? What are you talking about? And these are fair questions.

Whereas game of thrones covered this part of the Song of Ice and Fire lore, he didn’t really go into detail about it. That’s why a series like this would have been amazing.

As JRR Tolkin and The Silmarillion, George RR Martin has created a rich vein of source material that showrunners can mine for years to come. The guy wrote a story book for his invented world called The world of ice and fire.


Posting on Twitter



Twitter

Not only would Moon of blood to have covered a subject that we know so little about would also have been from an entirely new perspective. The feminine point of view.

While actors like Milly Alcock do an incredible job of centering the female experience in Dragon Houseit remains a show created and written by men.

For Moon of blood, Jane Goldmanwho is the screenwriter of the next Little Mermaid film, was to be showrunner. And unlike game of throneswhich was literally written by two men, she intended to have a full writing staff.

Martin himself was supposed to be quite removed from the show, operating only in an advisory role and allowing the writers to create their own story from scratch. Kind of like new the Lord of the Rings TV show.

WATCH BELOW: Everything You Need To Know About ‘House Of The Dragon’ Star Milly Alcock

The cast tied to the show was also quite impressive. Naomi Watts was to play the lead role alongside Naomi Ackie (Star Wars), Sheila Atim (The Woman King), Jamie Bower (Stranger Things) and John Simm (Life on Mars, Doctor Who).

Despite the incredible potential, the show never took off. scrapped HBO Moon of blood on the same day he announced Dragon House.

The official reasoning for canning the series is a bit bland. HBO head of drama programming Casey Bloys said he didn’t deliver “based on the original series.”

The pilot was filmed in 2019, the same year The iron Throneis over, so it’s likely HBO wasn’t sure about diving into such an ambitious topic. Dragon House with its strong premise and based on books written by Martin was perhaps seen as a safer bet.

It’s still a shame because Moon of blood looked awesome. Now that Draco’s Housen is confirmed for another season, maybe HBO will give in and we’ll see something like this down the line.

The Southampton International Boat Show opened on Friday 16th September with wooden and classic boats on display afloat and ashore.

The show has a dedicated “zone” for wooden boats, largely populated by the Wooden Boat Builders Trade Association, whose most recently built small craft are attracting much interest from visitors.

At the center of this area is the beautiful Jubilee, pictured above, one of 17 Deben Cherubs designed and built – and now on display – by Woodbridge Boatyard on the River Deben in Suffolk.

This one dates from 1935, the year of King George V’s Silver Jubilee, hence its name, which added poignancy this week.

Woodbridge is testing biocide-free antifouling on this boat and other boats it handles, and meanwhile Jubilee’s topsides are coated with organic linseed oil paint, tinted with natural pigment for a custom color. It is an environmentally friendly and low maintenance way to coat the boat.

A century ago a Deben Cherub would have cost you £160. The yard has other Cherubs and similar dayboats and small cruisers, waiting for the right owner to come along and start a refit.

Woodbridge Southampton

Here is another beautiful Woodbridge boat at the show, proudly displayed by her owner Vicki, who commissioned her for the lines of a clinker dinghy that was once built by Everson & Son, the famous yard from which Woodbridge grew.

Vicki said, “Owning a canoe like this is a childhood dream come true.”

Willow Bay Boats are a regular exhibitor at the show – their fine range of traditional watercraft, built in Lyme Regis, are always a delight to behold.

This is the Mystery 14, built over the summer by Colin Evans of Evans Boatwork in Pembrokeshire, Wales. A highly desirable dayboat from an experienced yard.

A welcome sight at any boat show in 2022!

Lowestoft’s International Boat Building College was fielding inquiries after a well-attended demonstration of how to steam bend a piece of oak.

IBTC Lowestoft also has this wonderful boat for sale – yours for £9,000. We know what you want.

Will Reed

Just across the bridge and also promoting its practical boat building courses is the Dorset-based Boat Building Academy. Pictured is Principal Will Reed with the first student-built boat at BBA which was also designed by a student. The strip-plank speedboat is joined at the BBA stand by a traditional clapboard boat.

And also by examples of what BBA students have achieved in CEGEP furniture making courses. This chair was produced over a five day course, starting with a log, using traditional tools, and no experience is necessary.

Classic Boat readers will be familiar with the award-winning work of Win Knoops, pictured left with colleague Olly, and the yard’s Bristol 6.0, an electric dayboat we featured in Classic Boat earlier this year.

Win’s highly respected yard, Star Yachts, is based in Bristol.

At the marina, Spirit Yachts continues to lead the industry in sustainable boat building with the all-electric Spirit 44CR and Spirit 30 on display. The Spirit team will be at the boat show from Friday 16th to Sunday 25th September at quays M340 and M346, or email sales@spirityachts.com to book a private appointment. Worth seeing aboard a Spirit!

Does this classify as Spirit of Tradition? Bentley has entered the boat show.

Back on the marina and almost dubbed a ‘classic’, the Nicholson 31 attracted a steady stream of visitors. The class association brought two boats to the show and their more traditional design can only be a thought-provoking sight among the spacious, modern yachts that populate the rest of the marina.

No wonder the tall ship Morgenster is a highlight of the 2022 show. You can come aboard and book a ride yourself if you feel like it.

Finally, this Dale launch has a distinct classic pedigree. Dale is one of the big names in the British Isles Navy, still producing some head-turning boats in 2022.

For our boat show hub page, containing all the basic information, including links to ticket prices and more, go here. The show runs until Sunday, September 24 with one day closed, Monday, the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

“Yes, Ken, great! I am excited. John”

This is the last email I received from Fr. John O’Malley, SJ, sent last July in response to a message detailing my plans to interview him for common good. As with all his prose, it was brief, lively and direct.

At ninety-five, he warned me, he could no longer travel easily, much less travel to Chicago where I had hoped to do the interview live in front of an audience at the Lumen Christi Institute. Nevertheless, he wanted me to know that our scheduled interview at the Jesuit retreat house in Baltimore, where he now lived, was still excited him.

This is the word that resonated with me last weekend when I learned that he had passed away. I cannot lay claim to a long and close friendship with Father O’Malley. He was nine years older and on another professional circuit. But I read and greatly admired his work, as anyone who cares about the craft of history should, and I was fortunate enough to have a relationship with him that was as much coincidental as anything else. In fact, we were both from Ohio, he from a small town along the Ohio River, and I from a suburb of Cleveland on Lake Erie. He reminded me of this in a longer email last July: “I guess you’re as proud as I am to be from Ohio,” he wrote. He then quoted something Orville Wright said to someone who asked him how to be successful in life: “Choose good parents first. Second, being born in Ohio.

It wasn’t just Buckeye booster. As O’Malley points out in The formation of a historian, his last autobiographical book – published at the age of ninety-four! – he believed that you couldn’t really understand other people until you understood where they came from. The roots mattered, as did all the other breathing pressures of specialness – time, place, chance.
