Throwback Thursday: Montana’s historic places recognized

In May 1862, Abraham Lincoln signed into law the Homestead Act, which encouraged Western migration by entitling settlers to 160 acres of public land after they reside on and cultivate the land for five years. For much of the West, including Montana, homesteading gave rural communities their roots. Some of these homesteads took root on huge, isolated stretches of land while others blossomed into bustling towns that acted as the gateway to the West. 

Two Montana locations from the homestead era recently landed on the National Register of Historic Places thanks to Bureau of Land Management archaeologist Zane Fulbright.

Bronze statuette of Zeus or Poseidon (via The Met)

early 5th century BCE

Archaic Greek

“This mature bearded figure must represent either Zeus, the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympian deities, or his brother Poseidon, who controlled the seas. The identity would have been clear from the attribute that was originally held in the right hand. Zeus’s weapon was the thunderbolt, and a sanctuary to him was established wherever lightening struck. Poseidon wielded a trident, the three-pronged spear that fishermen used to catch huge tuna.”

Finale Version des NetzDG-Gesetzestextes für die Abstimmung im Bundestag ist da

Die Große Koalition im Bundestag hat heute dem Rechtsausschuss eine finale Version des Entwurfes des Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetzes vorgelegt. Der Gesetzesvorschlag soll am kommenden Freitag im Deutschen Bundestag abgestimmt werden. Derzeit steht die Plenardebatte für 8 Uhr am Freitag Morgen auf der Tagesordnung des Bundestages. 45 Minuten sind für die Debatte eingeplant.

Das Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz wurde in einigen Punkten entschärft. Trotz dieser Nachbesserungen bleibt das Gesetz eine Gefahr für die Meinungsfreiheit, vor allem weil große Plattformen mit Bußgeldandrohung verpflichtet werden, „offensichtlich rechtswidrige Inhalte“ innerhalb einer kurzen Frist zu löschen. Damit besteht weiterhin die Befürchtung, dass zuviel gelöscht wird und damit die Meinungsfreiheit gefährdet ist.

Nach allem, was wir bislang im Vergleich sehen hat sich der Entwurf zwischen gestern und heute nicht mehr verändert.

The Triumph of Death (The Three Fates), Flemish tapestry, c. 1510-20. 

“The three fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, who spin, draw out and cut the thread of Life, represent Death in this tapestry, as they triumph over the fallen body of Chastity.”
