Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.

In the Swiss capital Bern, executions on the gallows took place until the early 19th century. For a long time the unholy ground remained untouched. Today – as private homes are about to be built on one of Bern’s two gallows sites – the archaeological service is uncovering this dark chapter of the towns history.

I have finally been able to put two and two together and found the source of the annoying trumpet like instrument the Vuvuzela I had a feeling the Mormons were some how involved, but this is the proof I needed to further my theory......

Mohawks, stage diving, fists flying. Homemade band t-shirts, circle pits, singalongs. These scenes are not unfamiliar; they have flooded pop culture imagery for more than 25 years. The punk rock ethos gains new relevance in Israel when band members' choices are often between picking up a guitar or picking up a gun. "Jericho's Echo" introduces us to some of the colorful characters of the little-known Israeli punk scene, and gives us insights into their lives through interviews, verite' scenes and live musical footage. The young people in these bands represent the future of this important region, and their views are not those usually portrayed by the mainstream media.

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself."
— Edward Abbey (Desert Solitaire)
Beef Basin is a largely unknown high desert valley sanwiched between much more famous nearby places such as Canyonlands National Park, Dark Canyon Wilderness and Cedar Mesa. Managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Monticello Field Office, Beef Basin is a treasure trove of ancient ruins, uniquely free-standing similar to those found in Hovenweep National Monument.
The northern part of the valley is located inside Canyonlands NP boundary, but the southern portion is managed by BLM. The valley itself is really a northerly extension of the Cedar Mesa ecosystem featuring pinyon-juniper-sagebrush forest and ringed by redrock canyons.
