End of the Road/Blog

[blog post] created 2 Nov, 2011 at 3:47AM by daniel

Unfortuantely I am unable to continue with the babylon news blog (sporadic as it may have been). The blog is set up to use google readers ability to share items to a rss feed and pull those items onto the blog. With the latest changes to google reader this functionality has been taken away, thus I am unable to post any items automatically. I would love to continue the blog but i do not have enough time at present to do the blog properly.

My hope is that in the future i will get time to fix site up, but that may be about 6 months away. As always, I have big plans but not really any time to implement them!

Apologies,

Daniel

More On Why Iraq’s Anti-Corruption Chairman Quit

[BLOG POST] created 31 Oct, 2011 at 3:41AM by anonymous

The head of Iraq’s main anti-corruption agency, Judge Rahim al-Ogaili of the Integrity Commission resigned on September 9, 2011. He said that the government was not committed to fighting graft and fraud, and that the country’s political parties were constantly interfering in his work. A new report by the International Crisis Group shed new light on why Ogaili stepped down. Apparently the Integrity Commission and other agencies discovered a series of front companies run by leading politicians that would routinely win government contracts, but not complete their work. When Ogaili tried to prosecute them, the authorities stepped in and blocked each case. This frustrating experience might have been the last straw for the Integrity Commission head, and led to him quitting.

Virtual Amarna Project

[BLOG POST] created 29 Oct, 2011 at 4:50AM by anonymous

The ancient Egyptian city of Amarna. was the short-lived capital built by the Pharaoh Akhenaten and abandoned shortly after his death (c. 1332 BCE). It is of particular significance as it represents both the location of the first major society dedicated to the cult of a single god as well as an important city that was occupied for a relatively brief period and then abandoned. It is thus simultaneously the key to a chapter in the history of religious experience and to a fuller understanding of what it was like to be an ancient Egyptian. More information on Amarna can be found in Kemp 1977; 1995; 2002 and 2005.
