There are few things I love more than archive photos of the excavations of #Pompeii. These capture the 1950s excavations of the Via dell’Abbondanza. Brilliant contrast between the suited visitors and the workmen. And oh just look at the painted written signs & frescoes. Fabulous.

And of course I meant to write 1910s not 1950s. #sigh

Recuerde silenciar este hilo si no quiere spoilers de Memorias de Idhún. O si no quiere ver este hilo, lo cual el muy comprensible.
Recordemos que al fin del libro anterior, la Resistencia estaba en muy mala forma: Shail había quedado desintegrado, Alsan se había hecho furro a tiempo parcial, y estaba Jack.

Mau cerita sedikit soal Magic Leap.

Perusahaan yang ngakunya bergerak di Augmented Reality dan sama sekali belum pernah rilis produk TAPI sudah berhasil raise funding senilai lebih dari USD 2,3 billion.
Tahun 2014, seorang pebisnis yang baru saja berhasil menjual perusahaannya, "Mako Surgical" (Bergerak di bidang Robotics untuk surgery) bernama Rony Abovitz mengaku mendapatkan seed funding senilai USD 50 juta untuk perusahaan barunya:

It's time.
The inchoate, frothy sea of #Pisces is without differentiation
It needs the clarity & singularity of 1 instead of the duality of the fish.

Had the great honour of talking to @pompeii_sites Director General, @MassimoOsanna, at the site of his new excavations: the first in 20 years to entirely dig through the 4 metres of ash and pumice stones from the AD 79 eruption.
Such an exciting project to watch unfold. #Pompeii
@pompeii_sites @MassimoOsanna A few more views of the incredibly exciting first glimpses of the tops of the walls emerging from the volcanic ash & amphorae nestled in the pumice in the new excavations in Region V, #Pompeii.
Latest photographs from the new excavations in Region V of #Pompeii. Painted wall plaster emerging from the pumice and a winged putto (cherub) sees daylight once more.
