A seafarers tale – an archaeological elucidation of a shipwreck By Sten Sjostrand Dreary weather and intermittent rain has led to a dramatic drop in temperature over the last few days and then, just as the rain finally stopped, a cold wind began to blow from the north. It whipped up high waves and enormous swells that broke repeatedly against the side of the ship giving the deck, and everyone on it, a good showering. It was unbearably cold, wet and miserable. Captain Heng Tai dexterously managed to avoid getting any salt water in his face as he crouched and turned with every hit. He was an experienced captain who had sailed this route many times before, but never so late in the season. The best time for the voyage was December when the northeast monsoon winds guaranteed a fair and safe passage all the way down the South China Sea. But now, late in February, the winds were forceful, occasionally violent and sometimes frightening. The swell generated by these waves was higher than any Heng Tai could remember. As well as being cold and wet, Heng Tai was now starting to get a very uncomfortable feeling in the pit of his stomach.

There are many examples: However, in these other often unavoidable and unwanted situations, this question comes to the forefront. With an infinite future ahead and limitless possibilities and choices, the youth wonders what the purpose of her life is and what she should do — get married and raise a family, seek further education and a professional career, get a good-paying job, go on a missions trip, or a billion other options.
The older person who is retired, perhaps widowed, watching friends and family die all around him, also wonders what the purpose and meaning of life is — but for a different reason than the youth does. Choices become more limited. Those things that used to give life purpose and meaning seem to be slipping away.

But it is not a question to which I will provide an answer here, for the simple reason that there is no convincing evidence to prove he was either a homosexual or to the contrary, that he was not. There are only a lot of suspicions and speculations for both positions, nothing more. This will be the first part of a series of articles on this blog, about manly love, homosexual behaviour and homosexuality, and the role they played in the life and legend of TE. A homosexual is not a very nice chap.
Homosexuals were different from the norm, and their otherness was perceived as being suspicious, dangerous and evil. Consequently both enemy men and women were often raped, to prove the point. And we still find it in modern times, like for example in the executions of homosexuals in Iran during the revolutionary period of the eighties, when Ayatollah Khomeiny took over.

Territorial boundaries[ edit ] Igboland is surrounded on all sides by a host of large rivers, and other southern and central Nigeria indigenous tribes namely Bini , Urhobo-Isoko , Ijaw , Ogoni , Igala , Tiv , Yako , Idoma and Ibibio. Baikie, “Igbo homeland, extends east and west, from the Old Kalabar river to the banks of the Kwora, Niger River , and possesses also some territory at Aboh , an Igbo clan, to the west-ward of the latter stream. On the north it borders on Igara, Igala and A’kpoto, and it is separated from the sea only by petty tribes, all of which trace their origin to this great race”.
The northern Igbo Kingdom of Nri , which rose around the 10th century AD, is credited with the foundation of much of Igboland’s culture, customs, and religious practices. It is the oldest existing monarchy in present-day Nigeria. In southern Igboland several groups developed, of which the most notable was the Aro Confederacy.

A miscellaneous and unorganized archive of deities; spirits; figures and mythological people and places from Arabian polytheism and from the era before and during the time of Muhammad.

This expat housing is like living in a small self-contained holiday village or prison, depending on your point of view. The better ones have multiple pools, restaurants, markets, and so on. Within the compounds the dress is Western, some going as far as banning any form of Saudi dress and certainly Saudis are not allowed on at all socially! Generally accommodation on Western compounds in KSA is of reasonable quality and quite spacious. Compound living is quite expensive compared to living off compound Anywhere from , to , SAR for a 3 bed villa or even more but most westerners choose this way of life due to freedom and security as well as the facilities.
I would not recommend living off-compound if you have a wife and children; at least within the compound they have relative freedom. Most expats have their accommodation costs paid directly by their employer who will also normally arrange housing. However, there is a shortage of good housing in the better compounds in the main cities, so it may take some time to get somewhere suitable for yourself and your family.

Iqbal Sacranie, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, urged the prime minister to use his influence to “avert the destruction of an important Muslim country” and warned of deep cynicism among British Muslims about the motives for the war on terror. In a letter to No 10, Mr Sacranie described the plans for war as a “colonial policy”.
A war would worsen relations between communities and faiths in Britain as well as causing “lasting damage” to relations between the Muslim world and the west, Mr Sacranie added. The opposition of the MCB, a moderate organisation linked to dozens of community groups, highlights the failure of the US and Britain to convince Muslims in the west of the validity of the war on terrorism.
Seven out of 10 British Muslims believe the war on terror is a war on Islam, according to an ICM poll published last month. In the letter, Mr Sacranie expressed support for the anti-terrorist campaign, but wrote: A Downing Street spokeswoman said: With war looming, Percy A. Founding members of W.
