Archaeoastronomy is the study of how people in the ancient past have understood and used the phenomena in the sky, and what role the sky played in their cultures. Ancient monuments and writings from around the world are undeniable proof that thousands of years ago people had advanced astronomical knowledge. Thousands of years before Copernicus published De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium people considered the Sun as the center of our planetary system.
In De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium  (published 1543) Copernicus re-established the order of planets and proposed a heliostatic universe. Antikythera Mechanism is undeniable example of advanced astronomical knowledge possessed by astronomers thousands of years ago. The evidence of  very good understanding by the ancient people of astronomical cycles of our planet can be found in their monuments (pyramids and temples) and  surviving written records (found in Mesoamerica, Egypt and India). The easiest way to record spatial observations — other than by framing them against a prominent topographic features — was by erecting durable markers of their own in the landscape (including pyramids and temples)  to calibrate the rising or setting azimuths of the sun, moon, planets and stars.
STANDING STONES at Nabta in the Nubian desert  predate Stonehenge and other astronomically aligned sites in Europe (site’s age estimate: between 6400 and 4900 BC) They are the oldest dated astronomical alignment discovered so far and bear a striking resemblance to Stonehenge and other megalithic sites constructed a millennium later in England, Brittany, and Europe.
In Nabta, there are six megalithic alignments extending across the sediments of the playa, containing a total of 24 megaliths or megalithic scatters. Each of these four pairs were set close together to form “gates.” Two of these pairs align to form a line very close to a true north-south line, and the other two pairs or gates align to form an east-west line. Stonehenge is a megalithic monument on the Salisbury Plain in Southern England, composed mainly of thirty upright stones (sarsens, each over ten feet tall and weighing 26 tons), aligned in a circle, with thirty lintels (6 tons each) perched horizontally atop the sarsens in a continuous circle.
In the foregoing picture a line (blue) originating at Stonehenge’s centre, dissects the centre of the Heel stone. Note how the line relates to the Avenue set of circles (magenta) and brushes the northern side of the large post marker adjacent to the Avenue circles.
It is normal carpentry or surveying practice to have “sighting-lines” run to the “side” of pegs or posts, rather than to the centres, as far greater accuracy is achieved and the surveyor is able to visually verify the accuracy of the full alignment. Another circle of immense importance, which links Stonehenge to the Lunar codes of the Khafre Pyramid of Egypt. Possibly the oldest solar observatory in the Americas has been found, suggesting the existence of early, sophisticated Sun cults, scientists report. It comprises a group of 2,300-year-old structures, known as the Thirteen Towers, which are found in the Chankillo archaeological site, Peru.
Clive Ruggles, professor of archaeoastronomy at Leicester University, UK, said: “These towers have been known to exist for a century or so. The rectangular structures, between 75 and 125 square metres (807-1,345 sq ft) in size, are regularly spaced – forming a “toothed” horizon with narrow gaps at regular intervals. About 230m (750ft) to the east and west are what scientists believe to be two observation points.
This means the ancient civilisation could have regulated a calendar, he said, by keeping track of the number of days it took for the Sun to move from tower to tower. The site where the towers are based is about four square kilometres (1.5 square miles) in size, and is believed to be a ceremonial centre that was occupied in the 4th Century BC. A lot of attention at the Chankillo site has focused on what is thought to be a fortified temple. 1,500 BC is the “official age of ruins near Tiwanacu, however there is strong evidence that this site could be as old as 15,000BC …The main archaeological site at Tiwanaku has five primary structures, including the Akapana pyramid and the Kalasasaya temple. The Gateway of the Sun is carved with extreme precision out of a single block of very hard andesite granite. Sun-god Viracocha from the Gate of the Sun is the personification of the Sun.It provides the key to understanding astronomical significance of Tiwanacu.
The figure is widely believed to represent Viracocha, or the Aymara weather god Thunupa, and is sometimes called the ‘weeping god’ and likened to the ‘staff god’ of the Chavin culture. Let’s have closer look at the frieze of Sun-god (notice 17 rays with rings at the and and 6 puma heads; 24 segments around the head in total counting the “small head” in the middle).
This wonderful graphic by Ken Bakeman shows colored version of the Sun-god from the Gate of the Sun relief.
On the Gateway of the Sun, the famous carved figure on the decorated archway in the ancient pre-Incan city of Tiwanako most likely represents Wiracocha, flanked by 48 winged effigies — 32 with human faces and 16 with condor heads. Arthur Posnansky’s calendrical interpretation of the frieze (Notes on Peruvian antiquities, pp. Many people have stood in front of the massive stone monument known as the “Gate of the Sun” in the ancient city of Tiwanaku in the Bolivian Andes.
In the year 2,000, I found myself in Tiwanaku with the Discovery Channel filming for “Atlantis in the Andes” and in the company of Oscar Corvison, a Bolivian Archeoastronomer who was keen to explain his interpretation of the vigesimal (base 20) system of the Tiwanaku calendar.  Oscar explained that it was not the Sun Gate which was the Tiwanaku calendar, but a wall which today is to one side of the Sun Gate, inside a courtyard called the “Kalasasaya”.
View from the field showing the reconstructed wall, the position of the missing pillar can be easily seen, just behind where the person appears to be running.
Oscar gave me a self-produced booklet which explained how the wall functioned, and it seemed simple enough to understand that the year had been divided into 20 parts as he claimed, so I thought no more of it until the end of December 2008, when it became necessary to give some book references to my editor who was going over the draft of my “Atlantis: Lost Kingdom of the Andes” for publishing on 21 May 2009 by Floris Boooks. Since my own fascination is for ancient measurements rather than calendars, I began to study Posnansky’s measurement of the wall, and discovered the wall was not simply a solar calendar as had been previously thought, but incorporated a sophisticated calendar based on sidereal lunar months. The stone gateway which is today in the Kalasasaya is baptised ‘the Gate of the Sun’ and ‘Kalasasaya’ according to Arthur Posnansky who spent a lifetime studying the site, simply means ‘standing stones’. This satellite image shows the Kalasasaya courtyard with the calendar wall to the west and the observation stone marked the viewing position.
The sun would now begin to move back towards the centre, reaching here another quarter of a year later on March 22, marking the Autumn equinox, then it would continue to the right, reaching the end pillar on June 21st marking the winter solstice and the beginning of the Aymara New Year (the great festival of Inti Raimi when the sun appears to “stand still”) and returning back over the centre pillar one year later on the following 22nd September to mark the beginning of another Spring. Posnansky seems to have considered the row of pillars as representing a calendar based upon a month of 30 days – probably because 30 small figures called “Chasquis” appear on the Gate of the Sun – and states that the solar year of twelve months was used with the sun showing through the gap between the pillars each month. Although Corvison was correct in identifying the use of a solar calendar based on divisions of 20, (and this should not be a surprise since both the Aztec and Maya civilisations used a base 20 calendar) he does not seem to have considered the possibility it could also have been a lunar calendar.
Now I wondered if this in some way tied in with the Saros cycle and since it takes thirteen and a third sidereal lunar months to circle round the calendar stones in order to complete one ‘lap’ and come back to a full year, how many ‘laps’ would it take to fulfil the Saros cycle?
Well, three ‘laps’ round the pillars would make the sun once more over the central pillar and represent 40 sidereal lunar months and since each lap around the pillars is a solar year, a total of 18 ‘laps’ round the pillars would complete the Saros cycle, the sun would be back again over the central pillar and the cycle would all begin all over again!
Maybe that’s why the Amautas (mathematicians) of the Aymara thought they had discovered the most perfect calendar in the world.
In addition to counting the Inca lunar year of 12 sidereal lunar months (328 days) the calendar also represents a year of 360 days as well as a year of 365.24 days. It seems that in the Andes, a work period of six weeks of nine days was used, which would therefore correspond to three divisions of the pillar calendar and be two sidereal lunar months.
The key to the calendar was said to be built into the Gate of the Sun, today found near the Kalasasaya pillar wall and put there when the Kalasasaya was restored. On the upper level, on each side there are three rows of iconic figures called ‘chasquis’ — messengers of the gods, each row has eight chasquis, but it is thought that the outer three were meant to be a continuation on the walls each side of the gate which today are missing. The frieze with eleven icons represents the eleven pillars of the wall.  Lower image highlights the continuous “flow” of the “maze” line.
Beneath these chasquis there is a continuous row of smaller icons arranged so that eleven of them stand apart from the rest.
The reason why people can’t see the correct number of chasquis on the lower freize of the Sun Gate is because the eleven chasquis in a row represent a circular or elliptical orbit, so the two end chasquis represent the solstices when the sun reaches the ends of the orbit, but the remaining nine chasquis conceal another chasqui behind them so to speak (if viewing the orbit in plan view) so the total is two end chasquis plus eighteen ‘double’ chasquis making 20 all told. Apart from the end chasquis, each chasqui conceals a twin behind it representing the same position on the other side of the orbit.
This is clearly shown on the freize itself where there is like a route marked round the chasquis telling you to go round the calendar in an orbit, then there are 20 condor head symbols in pairs on the upper part of the freize, and 20 condor head symbols on the lower part of the freize in pairs, telling you to count in twenties and forties. The frieze shows forty condor heads in two rows of twenty also indicating that the calendar is based upon divisions of twenty. Many people have mistakenly thought that the Gate of the Sun was the calendar, but it isn’t. Instead of reading horizontally, if we read vertically, they seem to be saying, ‘count in blocks of three.’ But blocks of three what? Above, the “Gate of the Sun” at Tiwanaku, Bolivia, the 30 Chasquis represent 30 Solar years,  equal to 20 Zocam years of 20 sidereal lunar months or 10 Acrotom years of 37 synodic lunar months. The 30 Chasquis represent 30 Solar years, equal to 20 Zocam years of 20 sidereal lunar months or 10 Acrotom years of 37 synodic lunar months. Above, when the sun reached the end of the pillars, it appeared to “stand still” before beginning its journey back in the opposite direction. The Maya were expert sky-watchers, careful observers of the motions of the celestial bodies.
The first dwarven settlements appear in the great mountain range known as the Yehimal, which lies at the juncture of the three great continents of Faerun, Kara-Tur, and Zakhara.
Miyeritar militarily occupied and annexed by Aryvandaar, though a number of clans and strongholds resist and continue to fight. Dragons set the southern expanse of Shantel Othreier aflame, separating the soon-to-be-called Wyrmwood from its greater body. Thearnytaar and Eiellur band together and declare war on Ilythiir, decrying their use of fire and wanton destruction far more than the power plays of the northern elves. Fall of Eiellur as the Ilythiiri once again use fire to destroy their realm around them and isolate them from aid. The Crown Wars see a sudden influx of elves entering Seros, forcing the elves out into the sea and away from the coastal waters.
The betrayers of Eiellur are rewarded by the Ilythiiri with a tract of jungle overlooking the River Talar, which will become known as the Misty Vale. Thearnytaar falls to the savage and now-unrepentant dark elves, who use enslaved monsters and undead to occupy the thorn-and-bramble choked woods.
Shantel Othreier conquered by the Vyshaantar Empire of Aryvandaar after the mysterious death of Coronal Ynloeth. The eight sons of Taark Shanat set off to found their own kingdoms in the caverns to the north (beneath modern-day Tethyr and Amn). While not destroyed utterly, Illefarn & its colony in the Llewyrrwood is annexed by Aryvandaar as its nobility of priests and High Mages died under the persecution of the increasingly-crazed Coronal Giilvas Vyshaan. The Vyshantaar Empire’s forces occupy all elven realms (save Keltormir) from the High Forest of Aryvandaar to the sweltering southern forests of Ilythiir.
A large force of Llewyrr elves escape the oppressive mainland and resettle in isolation and safety among the mountains of the Moonshae Islands. The First Proclamation of Elven Court leads to the revolt of the nobles of Aryvandaar and the last Crown War begins. The Imperial Elven Navy man-o-war Green Monarch under Captain Mariona Leafbower loses a battle with Q'nidar and is forced to make a crash landing on Evermeet.
One of the largest groups of dwarves to flee the fall of Bhaerynden, abandon their subterranean homes and make their way overland to the Chultan peninsula before splintering into small tribal groups. Skirmishes break out between the eight northern realms of Shanatar as each fight to extend their borders at the expense of their neighbours. One of Apollo's more important daily tasks was to harness his chariot with four horses and drive the Sun across the sky. Aten was the Sun god in the appearance or the solar disk, sometimes depicted with wings, sometimes with life-giving hands on rays reaching out to worshippers.
Aurora, goddess of the dawn, renews herself every morning and flies across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun. The Oglala mythology places their God figures in four ranks, with four deities in each rank, having prestige and precedence according to rank and place in rank.

There was a new depth to the process as well- prior to 2010, when working on their EPs in much the same manner, the band had never before been in a proper studio. We are left with eight songs stretching 38 minutes, something far deeper, darker, and more substantial than anything they have done before.
310-230 BC) and others proposed that the sun was motionless in the center of an infinitely large sphere of fixed stars, and that the earth revolved about it, as well as rotating about its axis.
The measurements were not accurate enough to give a correct result, but did show that the sun was much more distant than the moon. A translation is: Aristarchus of Samos proposed certain hypotheses in writing, from which it followed that the universe was much larger than is now commonly believed. Places like Stonehenge and Pyramids of Egypt and Mesoamerica reveal in their location, orientation, shape and dimensions incredible astronomical knowledge.
3 In the Sahara Desert in Egypt lie the oldest known astronomically aligned stones in the world: Nabta. Although more research needs to be done, many scientists, believe that the alignments had an astronomical significance. Many Stonehenge alignments exist which undoubtedly indicate the astronomical significance of Stonehenge’s construction.
There is also an inner circle composed of similar stones, also constructed in post-and-lintel fashion. The azimuth angle of this line, off North, is 51.18333 degrees, which equates to 51 degrees, 11 minutes. A nearby line of posts extends toward the Heel Stone, as if to indicate this “latitude” line. When a line runs to the centre of a stone, the stone itself will generally have a peaked or pointed top to finitely indicate the refined intended position of the alignment.
It will be noted that this circle (2nd inward red) brushes two component positions on the Avenue, one of which has the official designation “B”. The towers span the annual rising and setting arcs of the Sun, providing a solar calendar to mark special dates. From these vantages, the 300m- (1,000ft-) long spread of the towers along the horizon corresponds very closely to the rising and setting positions of the Sun over the year. It is based at the coast of Peru in the Casma-Sechin River Basin and contains many buildings and plazas, as well as a fortified temple that has attracted much attention. Written records suggest the Incas were making solar observations by 1500 AD, and that their religion centered on Sun worship. Less than a kilometre to the south lies Puma Punku, with its man-made platform and megalithic ruins. Solstice lines marked in blue, green and red [ from possible observation points] are parallel to lines of sight for solstices.
Its elaborate headdress has 24 ray-like projections ending in circles or puma heads, and it holds two staffs ending in condor heads. They admire the craftsmanship of the small carved figures known as “Chasquis” or “Messengers of the Gods” and ponder over the use of the gate as an ancient calendar. He was particularly upset because he said, in the reconstruction of the western wall of the Kalasaya, one of the large stones which had originally been part of the calendar had not been restored, but left laying in a field a couple of hundred metres to the west of the wall. The rest of this essay and the discovery of the sidereal lunar calendar follows on from Oscar Corvison’s pioneering discovery of the base 20 system in the Tiwanaku calendar.
When he investigated Tiwanaku the stone pillars had more of the appearance of a ‘Stonehenge’, there was no wall there as there is today, (most of the wall was assumed to have been carried off so in the 1960’s as part of a reconstruction project the spaces between the pillars were filled in to form a wall, at the same time the Gate of the Sun was moved to its present position inside the Kalasasaya and next to the calendar wall) and only 10 of the giant pillars remained. In the centre of the Kalasasaya courtyard there is a large block of stone which is said to represent the original observation point. On the other hand, if used for agricultural purposes, it may simply have marked the winter and summer solstices with the appropriate pillar or space between the pillars marking the return of the sun to a suitable time for plantings crops, which is what Posnansky thought the purpose of the calendar was in the first place. By the time it reached midway to the next pillar, it would have travelled half as much again, which when added to the first figure means 27.39 days would haved passed — virtually a sidereal lunar month —   every one and a half pillars would add another sidereal month and continuing the process would take us back to the central pillar after 13 and a third such sidereal lunar months (or divisions) had passed, completing a solar year and making it a dual purpose, soli-lunar calendar.
It consists of a giant block of stone with a gate cut into its lower half and an elaborate decoration on the upper part.
They are arranged so that each side of the central figure there are two blocks each of three rows of five chasquis. The pillar stones built into the west wall are the calendar and it could be instead, that the chasquis are telling you how to operate the calendar.
When we studied the operation of the stones on the wall, we found that every one and a half pillars represented one sidereal lunar month. At the end of this period, 1 x lunar month had to be added to the lunar calendars to bring them back into phase with the solar year… Beneath the chasquis can be seen the freize with 11 smaller chasqui heads representing the 11 pillars on the calendar wall which in turn divide the solar year into 20 months of 18 days, and the 40 condor heads represent the 40 sidereal months which mesh with the solar calendar every three years. The great elven civilizations participated in five primary conflicts, leading to the decline of elven power in Faerun. Tethir, kin of Keltormir (soon to be called "the Dragonslayer"), single-handedly slays two ancient red wyrms of the Ridge and saves many elves of both his own Keltormir (allied with the northern elves) and Shantel Othreier. Ilythiir rises up and viciously strikes out at any who support the gold elves of the north, in answer to the aggressions of Aryvandaar. Thearnytaar and Eiellur, with minimal allies from Keltormir and Shantel Othreier, invade Ilythiir, intent on destroying or reforming the dark elves before more realms fall. Coryselmal, the grandest of the sea elf cities of Selmalyr, an elven nation of the Selmal Basin, becomes the capitol of the Aryselmalyr Empire over all the elf kingdoms in Seros. The followers of Shanat come under attack by the mysterious inhabitants of Rringlor Noroth, who rose from the depths of a great chasm in a battle for control of the caverns of Alatorin. The Wyrmskull Throne is formed, and Taark Shanat renames the wyrm's lair Brightaxe Hall and founds the kingdom of Alatorin.
The God's Theatre (modern day Tunlands) on eastern Shantel Othreier is the site of one of the largest and costliest of all the Crown Wars' battles. Guerrilla fighting and rebel mages arise in parts of Miyeritar and the newly conquered territories.
Miyeritar is engulfed in killing storms, which reduce this entire forest and realm into barren wastelands in three months.
The withdrawal of Keltormir's forces to close and defend its own borders pitted forces of Aryvandaar and Ilythiir against each other. Corellon's magic, as directed through his priests and High Mages, transforms the dark elves, now only found in the form of the corrupt Ilythiiri, into the drow. Much of the High Forest is abandoned for an age, leaving the forest open so the gods might restore its peace. Sol Invictus was adopted by the Christians in a Christian sense, as demonstrated in the Christ as Apollo-Helios in a mausoleum (c. He is said to drive through the heaven in his triumphal chariot harnessed by seven horses or one horse with seven heads, which represent the seven colors of the rainbow or the seven chakras.
When the heat of ten suns scorched the earth, he shot nine with his arrows and became the ruler of the remaining one.

One day a woman who was in a garden near the ocean, seeing a great fish playing in the surf, walked out into the water and played with it. Lonoa€™s attributes are thunder, lightening, dark clouds, rainbows, rain and wind, and clustering clouds of heaven. In western Ireland, legends still abound of hearing the hoof-beats of her horse as she rides west to escape the rays of the rising sun. The Sun-god reluctantly conceded to the boy's wishes and handed him the reigns.However, the inexperienced Phaethon quickly lost control of the immortal steeds, and the sun-chariot veered out of control setting the earth aflame, scorching the plains of Africa to desert.

The driving force is our incubator membership – a community of entrepreneurs working across new technologies and digital media who work in the space, access a network of expert resources, programs and perhaps most importantly, connect with each other. As a mission based, non-profit, the Media Center aims to provide access to the resources our internal and external community need – whether it is introductions to investors, feedback from some of the largest advertising agencies or training on how to pitch. The area’s unique blend of innovative start ups, creators and digital media companies represents the values and community that the Media Center is supporting. With beer, wine and bites from The Lighthouse, it’s the best place to be every Thursday. HMB has shared their creativity with audiences around the United States, South America, and Europe, where they’ve been embraced by a longstanding community of brass bands. His smoothly-blended DJ sets segue from Tito Puente to Tears For Fears when the vibe is right.
He loves singing almost as much as he loves DJing and regularly performs with the Grammy-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus (arguably the best youth choir in NYC) at venues such as Carnegie Hall. Her interactive performances are full of vaudeville antics, boast impeccable comedic timing, and have been known to feature up to 75 hula hoops. She has been representing her country and her people, performing at venues around the globe for over 30 years and with the greatest of international talents.
As a young musician in Cuba, Axel performed and ecorded with many renowned musicians, including the great Cuban conductor Miguel Ceruto, Teresa “Tete” Garcia Caturla of the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Sexteto Sendito, and Bobby Carcases, as well as the Roots on their Cuba tour. Since their founding in 2003, Conjunto Guantanamo has become highly visible on the NYC nightlife scene, performing at festivals, dance parties, and events and venues as diverse as The Museum of Modern Art and the grand opening of the IKEA store in RedHook (an all weekend affair!). Seventeen years ago, Nadia decided to pack her suitcase and move from her native Sydney, Australia to New York City to pursue her dream of being a jazz singer in the big apple.
The band is comprised largely of musicians from Trinidad and Tobago, the country that created steel drums, (or “pans”) and produces the vast majority of the world’s best players.
While his focus is on house, disco, and funk, he’s always searching for great sounds in every corner of every record shop in the city and the world wide web. An antidote to factional bickering everywhere in the world, Ola Fresca skillfully blends Cuban son, rumba, and timba, and Puerto Rican-style salsa, in a fresh sound that embraces the best of New York’s Latin scene. From their rustic Cuban roots-tinged 2004 debut Ay! At the age of 16, he was invited to join the National Folklore Dance Company of Costa Rica, thus launching his professional dance career.
Their orientation towards art is that passion and creativity trumps expertise, and that what you have to say is more important than the equipment you own.
Cutting his teeth first in the NYC drum & bass scene, Jesse eventually found his way to the deeper side of house, disco, funk, afrobeat, Latin, reggae, and various electronic and bass-fueled rhythms.
The group came into being in the summer of the year 2000 in a Brooklyn backyard, founded by members of NYC’s Brazilian based musical phenomena such as Tigresa, Xodo, and Beat the Donkey.
With an ever evolving set list that includes covers by many of today’s popular indie bands, the WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. Nelson draws inspiration from an eclectic range of artists such as Bjork, Nina Simone, & Joni Mitchell, and her performances aim to promote energetic empowerment for all who attend. His DJ sets are an eclectic blend of musical genres that are funky & soulful, drawn from the fusion of cultures found in the record crates of NYC. With vital, visceral and virtuosic performances from a nine-member company “Eternal Now” is set to an electronic score by Marco Cappelli that reflects the hybrid essentialism fusion of contemporary composition music. WHITE WAVE Dance is one of New York’s most innovative contemporary dance companies and has performed at the New York’s most wanted venues including BAM, Dumbo Dance Festival, New York Summer Stage, Museum of Arts and Design, and internationally at the Hong Kong Academy of Arts, National Theatre of Korea and the National Theatre of Taipei. The band has performed in venues in and around New York and New England and is currently in residency at Superfine, where it appears monthly. Conklin she has performed in all of New York’s jazz venues, and has a special talent for uncovering lesser known treasures of the Great American Songbook and performing them in nontraditional venues. Following their debut LP, composed largely in a studio, the band returned to the creative process they had employed on their first two EPs- working individually or in small, shifting groups. Now having spent time in one, they knew better how and when to use it, and were able to combine its benefits with a more methodical songwriting approach for the first time.
The story is told in Sir Thomas Heath’s Greek Astronomy (1932, New York: Dover, republished 1991) and Aristarchus of Samos, the Greek Copernicus (1913). Eratosthenes, somewhat later, estimated the radius of the earth, obtaining a value that happened to be accurate, although his estimate was thought too large (which encouraged Columbus).
He proposed that the firmament and the sun were unmoving, and the earth described a circle about the sun, which was located at the centre of the orbit, and that the sphere of the fixed stars was as great relative to the orbit of the earth as a sphere is to its center.
Over one thousand years before the creation of Stonehenge, people built a stone circle and other structures on the shoreline of a lake that has long since dried up.
The calendar consists of a number of stones, the main ones being four pairs of larger ones. For  example, the axis of Stonehenge aligns approximately to the midsummer rising sun azimuth.
The diameter of this circle is 472.5 feet, which is exactly the intended vertical height of the Khafre Pyramid of Egypt. The authors of the paper, who include Professor Ivan Ghezzi of the National Institute of Culture, Peru, believe the population was an ancient Sun cult and the observatory was used to mark special days in their solar calendar. For centuries the sites have been looted, vandalized and used as a quarry for stone, and all the walls now standing have been reconstructed. On either side of the central deity are a total of 48 other figures, arranged in three rows (8 per row); the outermost figures are unfinished.


But in fact, the gateway itself is not the calendar, the calendar is a little known row of 11 giant upright stones, now built into a wall which exists just behind the gateway.
The 11th missing pillar may be found laying face down in a field some 229 metres to the west. Some people thought so (Corvison 1996), but they failed to realise the Altiplano was Atlantis. From the centre to the centre of the end pillars is taken as 360 days (counting from one end to the other end then back again) then the distance from the outside to the outside of the opposite pillar (and back again) would represent 365.24 days.
In the centre of the decoration there is a representation of the ‘weeping’ god — presumably Viracocha and in his hands he carries two staffs, which look like measuring or mathematical staffs since although the rest of the monument is symmetrical, the staffs are different, the one in his right hand has two sets of three circles and the one in his left hand has two vertical lines over three circles. It can also be noted that two rows of two x five of the chasquis making twenty chasquis have faces looking forwards and one row of two x five chasquis making ten chasquis has condor heads looking upwards. Now it has usually been wrongly assumed that because the upper chasquis in horizontal rows total fifteen on each side (not counting the outer ones) that the total of thirty chasquis represent a month of 30 days since a solar year of 360 days divided by 12 months would give a 30 day month. Therefore every half division between the pillars represented one fortieth of the year or a third of a sidereal lunar month, the month itself being the prime unit.
Tethir's stand earned the elves the respect of the dragons, who had previously dismissed them as ignorant, two-footed cattle. Nearly 70,000 elves died at the hands of elven or orcish enemies, as an orc horde 100,000 strong fell upon the already-embattled elves. The madness of the Vyshaan clan compelled even their most fervent followers to abandon them before all the elves lay dead at their hands. All forms of life were believed to have been created by Ra, who called each of them into existence by speaking their secret names. Ixion was fooled by the ruse and raped the phantom, which conceived and birthed the tribe of Kentauroi (Centaurs) in a rain-shower upon Mount Pelion. Gnowee's baby son wandered off while she was gathering yams, and she began searching for him, carrying a large torch. Some time later the woman's leg, against which the fish had rubbed, began to swell and become painful, until at last she had her father make a cut in the swelling, out of which popped a baby.
She is also said to be directly linked in lineage to the Imperial household and the Emperor , who are considered descendants. As a benevolent god, Tonatiuh provided humans and other living beings with warmth and fertility. The first era, or Sun, was governed by the god Tezcatlipoca, the second one by Quetzalcoatl, the third one by the rain god Tlaloc, and the forth one by the goddess Chalchiuthlicue. Zeus was appalled by the destruction and struck the boy from the chariot with a thunderbolt, hurling his flaming body into the waters of the river Eridanos. It’s been a great experience to build a business in this neighborhood and to feel some small sense of ownership around its success.
Design can transform through beauty, functionality, community, messaging, interaction, etc. Moore works to the credo of ‘range is conducive to growth.’ Like many artists of his generation, Matt’s background was in action board sports and the action art of graffiti, each with their core value of speed, do-it-yourself ethic, enthusiasm for new terrain, and sheer fun of collaboration. These musical visionaries pull freely from rock, soul, world and electronic music to create a driving, genre-defying sound. Up and coming designers will be mentored by Street Style alum, designer Ron Bass.  In addition, attendees can experience SheaMoisture’s beauty lounge at the Street Style Block Party with trend-setting hair, makeup and skincare consultations via the SheaMoisture mobile beauty pod.
Plus, back by popular demand, PHOTOVILLE is partnering with Brooklyn favorites Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery to create an awesome space where you can eat, drink, and hang out with other photography lovers.
In preparation for their performance at the upcoming graduation, DUMBO neighbors Saint Ann’s School‘s high schoolers and sixth graders will join HMB and celebrate with gusto a challenging classical repertoire for brass and percussion under the direction of Stephen Pickering. Batala was started in 1997 in Paris, France by Brazilian percussionist Giba Goncalves; its infectious rhythms and dance has spread to more than thirty cites around the world. Locally, Foca has spent a decade building a strong and energetic community of students that reflects the rich physical, social, mental, and spiritual elements of capoeira.
Kai has also been playing the piano since age 5 and has been taking music production classes since age 7, getting his start at Manhattan DJ school Dubspot. Miss Saturn has performed her solo outdoor show at the World Busker’s Festival in New Zealand, Coney Island’s amusement parks (Astroland and Luna Park), and at Victorian Gardens in Central Park. In 2005, Axel moved to Las Vegas, where he spent two years performing with “Havana Night.” In 2009, he received a scholarship to finish his bachelor’s degree at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and relocated permanently to NYC. Led by founder Ulises Beato, along with Pepito Gomez, Sebastian Natal, Carlos Mena, Oscar Onoz and Mauricio Herrera, the band has inspired thousands of New Yorkers and visitors to swivel their hips in the name of Latin passion. Five pop albums, appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, SNL and Good Morning America, and performances with music industry greats including Sting, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Billy Joel later…she has crammed a lot into her career as a singer. Jah Pan’s steel drum, calypso musicians and reggae singers have performed all over the world, at events ranging from backyard parties to Presidential receptions, on NBC’s Today Show, at the U.S.
They are thoroughly dedicated to undermining the classed based art that dominates our culture!
His experiences inspired him to infuse his Latin percussion set with electronic music, and form a unique, first of its kind live show. Today, inspired by the 360 degree musical approach of tastemakers like Gilles Peterson and Mr.
Together with her six piece band, the ensemble conjures up a powerfully emotive live experience which is not easily categorized, but is nonetheless awe inspiring.
The band features Ray Scro, an acclaimed reed player in New York jazz circles, and Whit Symmes, on keyboard and vocals. The lack of an adequate theory of motion and inertia as well as the position of the Church) caused the usual view of a fixed earth to prevail.
These accomplishments are of the greatest significance, as we can see from our perspective. Over 6,000 years ago, stone slabs three meters high were dragged over a kilometer to create the site.
Professor Ruggles said: “The western observing point, and to some extent, the eastern one, are very restricted – you couldn’t have got more than two or three people watching from them.
Many of the statues were smashed during a campaign by the Catholic church to wipe out idolatry.  Excavations of the Akapana have revealed a sophisticated, monumental system of interlinked surface and subterranean water channels. The gateway displays intricate carvings and four deep rectangular niches, cut to an accuracy of ? mm. They include 30 winged attendants, or ‘angels’, with human or avian heads, who are either kneeling or running. Today, there are only 10 stones in the wall and the missing 11th stone lies face down some distance out in the field behind the wall. According to Oscar Corvison, a Bolivian archeo-astronomer who studied the site, the eleven pillars represented the division of the year into periods of 20 (Corvison 1996). When the sun set over the central pillar, the day would be the 22nd September (equinox) and Spring would begin (seasons reversed in southern hemisphere).
In this way, the calendar could mesh the Solar calendar with the Lunar calendar, the extra five and a quarter days being ‘lost’ (to view) when the sun reaches the end pillars and appears to stand still before returning in the opposite direction. But as explained above, the actual calendar is divided by 20, which would make solar divisions of 18 days.
Now on the Gate of the Sun there are a total of 48 Chasqui icons which could therefore represent 48 sidereal lunar months.
While the final fate of the Vyshaan elves is not recorded, most Tel'Quessir believe them dead and executed at the hands of Elven Court. Hun-Apu and Ixbalanque decided to kill their father's murderers, as well as Zipacna, son of Vucub Caquix.
The child, called Dudugera, grew up in the village, but his aggressiveness made him unpopular with the other boys. His sisters, the Heliades, gathered on the banks, and in their mourning with transformed into amber-teared poplar trees. Our goal was to use large-format environmental design as games, messaging and systems to incentivize physical fitness and transform urban space. Pop out to Pearl Street Triangle to take in live painting demos all afternoon by local artists Elle, Meres and Peter Hoacs. Over the past decade, he’s applied those principles to his bold, graphic aesthetic in media both analog and digital, for projects both personal and commercial. After their soul-stirring performance at TunnelVision last summer, we are thrilled to have them back.
Giusti’s method of photographing the site in the round creates an enclosed space not meant for living organisms, but rather for memories alone. This year saw the completion of a three-month program with Berlin and the Fall will see a 10-day intensive program in partnership with the French Cultural Embassy, which will welcome 10 Parisian Start Ups to New York. This unique and breathtaking martial art combines music, dance, combat, and Brazilian culture into an exciting and physically challenging form of self-expression that is accessible to everyone. He now regularly puts his Ableton skills to use by creating Mash-Ups for his DJ-set and has started to work on original material as well, which he looks forward to releasing this year.
She has graced the stages of La Soiree, The Famous Speigel Tent, The Box, PS 122, and the Bergen Music Festival. In New York, he plays with the legendary Pedrito Martinez Group, Gerardo Contino & Los Habaneros and his original ensemble, (U)nity, a collaboration with Cuban-American drummer Amaury Acosta. Sting, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz, Mike Myers, Mickey Rourke, Leonardo DiCaprio, and other stars have made surprise audience appearances at places like the West Village’s celebrated Socialista, where Conjunto Guantanamo have previously played a weekly residency. In 2012, Nadia began to see her songs as images, and felt an overwhelming desire to draw her music.
Scruff, Jesse takes it even further by progressing through tempos and genres seamlessly, building a vibe throughout the night. Scott Sokoloff (guitar), Gaku Takanashi (bass), Kirk Driscoll (drums), Tim Wildman (cornet) and Jim Wildman (trombone) round out the band. Some bloomed immediately, others matured slowly over the years, the rest demolished and rebuilt dozens of times in an effort to discover their ideal form. And all the evidence suggests that there was a formal or ceremonial approach to that point and that there were special rituals going on there. Alan Kolata comments that the system, ‘although superbly functional, is over-engineered, a piece of technical stone-cutting and joinery that is pure virtuosity’. Above the door is a frieze consisting of four lines of sculpture in low relief and a central figure sculptured in high relief, standing on a three-tiered pyramid.
In addition to the central figure, there are also 11 other frontal faces with solar masks, located in the lowest row of the frieze (the ‘meander’).
When the 11 stones were in their original positions in a row, the sun would set each evening over the row of stones so that priests standing in the centre of the adjacent courtyard could easily calculate the time of the year in a remarkable calendar which divided the year into 20 periods of 18 days and also meshed with a lunar calendar so that three solar years equalled 40 sidereal lunar months which was 2 “zocam” years and even more remarkably it also meshed with a Muisca lunar period of 37 months. This seems more logical, since if you count from the central pillar (representing the equinox) out to the end pillar on the right (representing the north solstice), then back past the centre to the far left pillar (representing the south solstice), then back to the centre again, you arrive at a division of 20. Each division from pillar to pillar would be 18 days, which could be arranged in groups of 2 x 9 days. Tahuantinsuyo, the empire of the Incas was ‘the land of the four quarters, or four divisions’ so dividing the 48 Chasquis by 4 results in 12 Chasquis — meaning 12 sidereal lunar months — which was the Inca lunar year of 328 days. Fearing for his safety, the woman brought her son to the huge fish, who seized Dudugera in his mouth, and swam away. According to the legend, during this age the world is characterized by maize eaters and it will violently come to an end, through an earthquake. There’s a lot of design complexity at that intersection and those are the best challenges for us. The digitally stitched photographs are constructed into kaleidoscopic pillars lit from within; transforming Smack Mellon’s existing columns into rows of glowing sentinels, majestically standing guard within the darkened gallery.
The Home Depot joins as a new sponsor sharing tips and tricks to organizing your closet with live closet activations and social engagement. These might be some unwanted items taking up space in your office — or the back of your closet. Join Mestre Foca and Professora Rouxinol in creating community, training your body, and developing your sense of wonder. Finally, as Kai is exploring acting and MC’ing, his magnetic personality led to National Geographic hiring Kai in February 2015 as a host of their new YouTube Kids channel.
Axel has produced two records for his mother, Xiomara Laugart, and has performed internationally at her side. He thrives on six hour sets.Jesse’s talents have taken him as far as Tokyo, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, Bristol, San Francisco, Miami, and Puerto Rico to name but a few.
Progress was slow, coming in fits and bursts, accommodating the unexpected twists and turns of life. Little is known about the ultimate purpose of Nabta and the nature of the people who built it. Some scientists believe that these figures represent a solar calendar with 12 months and 30 days in each month.
When the sun set over the next pillar to the left, one twentieth of a year would have passed and so on until reaching the pillar at the far left a quarter of a year later on the 21st December marking the Summer Solstice. In turn 328 days divided by 4 gave the 82 day (three month) period at the end of which the moon would be visible against the same group of stars etc and that I believe, is the message of the Chasquis — how to operate the calendar. Before departing with his father though, Dudugera warned his mother and her relatives to take refuge behind a great rock, as he was about to become the sun.
Moore is taking over the plaza with a large scale live painting experience that will be projected onto the side of the Manhattan Bridge, to beats by Brooklyn-based electronic duo Tanlines. Having DJ’d for many charities of the years, Kai became an ambassador for the Childhood Foundation (alongside fellow DJ Tiesto). In the late 1990s, Xiomara relocated to the United States, and in 2003 became a founding member of the Grammy-nominated fusion band Yerba Buena. He has worked with many celebrated musicians and producers, including George Clinton and Parliment Funkadelic, Michael Moog, Gary Haus, Jeff “Tain” Watts, James Genus, Ron Blake, Roy Hargrove, Luques Curtis, Giovani Hidalgo, Luis Salinas, Candido Camero, and Pablo Milanes. Conjunto Guantanamo brings you the origins and essence of what music lovers today mostly know as Salsa. At Natchie Art, Nadia draws each of her songs; each piece of art comes with lyrics and a free download code to own the song.
He has won numerous awards, include the 2014 Gay Games World Professional International Same Sex Latin Dance Championship, and the 2015-2014-2010 USA International Latin Same Sex Ballroom Championship. Todd Doyle (Box, Vox) and Ryan Jacob Doyle (Vox, Axe) grew up in a household that was constantly filled with audio influences.
He’s graced the decks of legendary clubs like Cielo, Limelight, APT, Watergate, Batofar, Roxy, Le Baron Tokyo, and more?alongside legendary jocks like LTJ Bukem, Matthew Dear, Afrika Bambaata, and Robert Hood. Additionally every thirty years an extra month had to be added to both lunar calendars to keep them synchronised with the solar calendar and this is commemorated in the Gateway of the Sun with thirty Chasquis marking the solar years and forty condor’s heads marking the lunar months. Hun-Apu became a sun god and his brother Ixbalanque became a moon goddess, switching genders. Obeying the son's advice, his mother and her relatives watched from safety as the sun burned everything, withering people, animals and plants; but to prevent the total annihilation of all, she threw lime in the face of the sun one morning, which became the clouds, which shaded the Earth from the merciless rays of the sun. In December, Kai was honored for his contributions by his local community in Brooklyn and named one of the Dumbo Dozen.
He credits his teachers Miriam Valdez (sister of the famous Cuban piano player and virtuoso Chucho Valdez) and Rosa Maria Tolon, as well as Amadito Valdez, the famous timbalero of the Buena Vista Social Club, with putting him on this path.
For than 7 years, Jesse acted as resident DJ promoter, and booking manager for Body Music: Sundays at Bembe, a weekly party in Brooklyn featuring a rotating lineup of live music. Graphic design projects often inform the Monumental Murals he paints in city neighborhoods around the world.
She has performed internationally, and recorded and performed alongside Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Roy Hargrove, Femi Kuti, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes and many others. On a typical night at Body Music Jesse traded off back and forth with the bands, seamlessly blending between live and DJ-led selections?building the vibe together. His annual series of Watercolor Paintings in black and white might inform future Logo Designs. They have honed their sound into spirited songs with accessible but often uncommon arrangements and share a good natured rapport both on and off stage and in the studio. Cross-pollinating between disciplines allows him to constantly refresh his perspective and produce unique work.
Xiomara has recorded and released three original records, Xiomara (2006), La Voz (2010) and Tears and Rumba, which is due out this summer. Applying his vision to new surfaces or in collaboration with others always proves his credo.
