Learn about the major religions of Ancient India.
Yeva P's insight:

This article talks about the three major religions of ancient India.  The first religion that is talked about is Hinduism. Hinduism is polytheistic and henotheistic and there is no one main teacher of the religion. Brahmanism is considered an early form of Hinduism and was based on Vedic writing. Buddhism is practiced by the followers of Gautama Buddha, and karma and reincarnation are important elements of the religion. Jainism is a non-theistic religion and is founded my Mahavira.

Yeva P's insight:

Researchers at the Houston Methodist Research Institute have developed a way to print living cells onto any surface in practically any shape, that is similar to 3rd century Chinese woodblock printing. This new technology has been named block-cell printing. It was developed to try to print cells with a higher survival rate than the current inkjet based cell printing.

Yeva P's insight:

New discoveries of 120mil and 130mil year old fossiles from an ancient lake in northeast China show that animals died in a hot cloud of ash similar to the one that destroyed Pompeii 2,000 years ago. These "Jehol" fossils are those of fish, birds, mammals, and small dinosaurs. Scientists found it odd that all of these animals were found in the same place, but after further research, they have concluded that after the animals were killed by the hot cloud of ash, they were then swept into the lake by the volcanic ash.

Yeva P's insight:

In the Chinese culture, the horse is associated with leadership, freedom, and energy. In ancient China, the horse was used most commonly among noble and high ranking families for fast transportation as well as military functions. There have been many horse figurines found in tombs from the Tang dynasty. An extinct breed of horses called the Farghana horses--also known as the "blood sweating horses" are thought to have had their red color from parasites or as a result of tiny blood vessels bursting after strenrous galloping.

Gaza fisherman hooks statue of ancient Greek god Apollo

Gaza fisherman hooks statue of ancient Greek god Apollo | Ancient Asian cities | Scoop.it
When a fisherman spotted a dark shape underwater off Gaza last summer, he at first thought it was a body. In fact, it was an ancient Greek statue of Apollo.
Yeva P's insight:

A 2,500 year old life-size bronze statue of the ancient Greek god Apollo was found in the waters of Gaza. The man that found the statue initially took it home and thought he was going to be rich, but it is illegal to sell art work that was found in that manner. Museum authorities in Switzerland have offered to repair and restore the statue and plan to eventually display it in Gaza.

Yeva P's insight:

An ASU study shows evidence that part of the demise of the Indus civilization 4,000 years ago was due to increasing violence and infectious disease. Examination of the human skeletal remains from three burials in Harrapa show that the Indus civilization was not as peaceful as it has been perceived. Researchers are saying that the climate change negatively impacted the Indus people, and in turn lead to more violence and the spread of diseases such as leprosy and tuberculosis.

Yeva P's insight:

Archaeologists have found eleven grains of brown rice that dates back to 2,500 year ago in Goze, Japan. The grains were well preserved because they were sealed in mud with high water content and not exposed to air, therefore it did not undergo carbonization. The well preservation will allow researchers to study the grain further through DNA analysis and possibly learn about the rice cultivated by the ancient Japanese, how the rice agriculture started and how it evolved. The researchers do not believe this rice will be reintroduced into today's culture.
