These ancient people measured time cycle called the "baktuns" of 394 years each, and the winter solstice coming Friday will mark the end of the 13th Baktun. Some analyze the calendar says the end date of the period is not Friday, but Sunday. Mayan calendar is based on the positions of celestial bodies - the sun, moon and stars - and is intended to inform people about the Mayan agriculture and economic trends, said archaeologist Alfredo Barrera.

One can argue whether it counts as a program or not, especially since the team was never built. And people who know more about Babbage and work There are notes I continue to debate how much of their contribution. (Babbage praised the originality of his work and said he saw a huge mistake in the calculation of Bernoulli, maybe we should pay tribute as the first debugger) Whatever role's in the history of the program, capturing the importance of the discovery of Babbage and realize that mathematics is only a part of: theorizing, for example, that the Analytical Engine could be used to write music. Be aware of things in the 1840s, long before anyone managed to build a computer, let alone people who can write songs.

Jovan Belcher girlfriend murder, suicide is easier with the guns, because guns are always easier

After the rhetoric, predicted the death of Jovan Belcher was surprised by the high West Babylon and Kansas City Chiefs, still come back to the only place that matters in the last hours of his life: a gun. He pushed through the rest of the results of what happened Saturday morning outside Arrowhead Stadium, go through the resume many positions Belcher played for coach Al Ritacco in West Babylon, the way they played linebacker at the University of Maine before he was a defensive lineman, and how signed as an undrafted free agent by the head and emerged as a star. All that is relevant to the end, only the relevant job description is as follows: Jovan Belcher, shooter. The shooting of the mother of the 3-month-old daughter at home, and then himself. Maybe we do not know what led him to anger, when jealousy, or the need to control the obsessive Kasandra Michelle Perkins, his bride. Perhaps no known brain injury, or something else that caused this madness. But know this: kill the girl, aged 22, and then himself in front of his coach and general manager is easier with guns, because guns always makes it easier. I called the Police Department in Kansas City Sunday morning and questioned homicide detective named Williams, asked how to get a gun in Kansas City, Mo. "As long as you are over 21 and have the cash and are not criminals, you can buy guns legally," he said. "And if you're a murderer, you are going to buy one on the street. Very easy on the road. No background checks. ' He said that once you own a firearm in Missouri, is allowed to carry in your car without permission to bear arms. I asked if he knew where Jovan Belcher bought weapons used Kasandra Perkins before he uses it himself. "All I can say," he said, "is that he bought it because I was in Kansas City." Paused and said: "In the metropolitan area." KCPD detective Williams asked what kind of weapons Belcher. He said he was not willing to provide that information. But when asked again if guns were legal, he said, "you just bought. That means that you can buy on the street. ' He asked: "Do you have more than one weapon?" Williams paused again and said: "We are investigating." No problem, either Perkins or Belcher Kasandra, if you have a small collection of weapons. It only takes one. Violence Policy Center estimates that nearly 1,500 murder-suicide in this country in 2011, and 90% of those who are involved in some type of weapon. Let New York City - Canarsie Friday morning, the husband and wife, each with a bullet in the head - and now Chiefs training facility will, on the same property as Arrowhead Stadium. This time, the story ends with the last bullet firing NFL player in his own head. "My prediction," says Williams, "is that (Belcher) does not have a permit to carry weapons." So good Belcher went to the car and got a gun in the house that he rents to Kasandra Perkins and her baby. Or a gun was inside the house when he decided to use it. The house in the 5400 block of Crysler Ave, A reporter at the scene of the surveillance camera reference attached to the house .. "Front and back," said Glenn Rice Kansas City Star I asked if it was a bad neighborhood, Rice said: "Not even close." But it has become the most dangerous neighborhood in Kansas City when Belcher, model and teammate hear about, start shooting. Jovan Belcher: Who owns the weapon when he became chief, on his way to the murder-suicide statistics, how Kasandra Perkins became the same kind of statistics a little before 8 am Saturday because a gun is easy to use. Sometimes age is the best line for a story like this, where you ask how many home runs Babe Ruth hit without bats? It seems that today, outside of what we know about the argument that began when, as reported in the Star Rice, Kasandra Perkins house later attended Trey Songz concert with friends, Jovan Belcher finally ran said. Just do not bullets. Nobody did.

"Very frustrating," said center Mike Pouncey dolphins in the locker room was quiet. "I think you all know they can not make mistakes against a football team. We missed out on many opportunities to make a play. '

But if one thing dolphin show, is that there are far from competitive. This is not a bottom feeder team most expected to Miami this year. Dolphins have a few pieces in place.

Sunday's loss to New England - the ancient kings of the AFC East - provides a perfect model of what the Dolphins need. For starters, Miami does not have the offensive firepower to keep up in New England.

Miami's defense played one of the best games this season. The Patriots entered this game as hot as the No. 1 in the league violation. New England has scored 40 points or more four times this season but was held back by a dolphin. Miami running game stuffed New England Tom Brady and confused with four sacks. The '23 Patriots had their lowest points since week 6.

But most violations Miami settled for field goals and punts. Rookie Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is not the best, only completed 13 of 29 passes for 186 yards. That's not good enough to beat Brady, even on a bad day.

Dolphins do not have the skill players to make plays great dynamic. Two perfect examples of Tannehill missed a deep connection to the receiver Brian Hartline that may have led to a touchdown.

"You have to hit" Tannehill admitted after the game. "Do not get too many pictures like that."

Stout Miami defense. But to take advantage of the Patriots biggest weakness: cornerback.

Dolphins traded former first Vontae Davis this summer, and when injured starter Richard Marshall reserve with a back injury. Miami fell to Sean Smith and the fourth or fifth corner, and that's where Wes Welker dominates.

Welker, a former Dolphin, had a successful return to Miami and caught 12 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. Welker Miami players can not be contained and the biggest reason the Patriots to move around the court in this game.

"He is very intelligent," said Dolphins safety Reshad Jones, who had an interception in the game. "It has one of the best quarterbacks in the game to give the ball. [Welker] a great job of route options, and is a very good job in letting go. '

Besides offensive skills player and cornerbacks, dolphins also need to know their left tackle situation. Jake Long the team's future will be darker after suffering a triceps injury in the first quarter. Dolphins coach Joe Philbin did not elaborate on the injury after the game, but the fact that the clothes along the street in the second half was a sign that he could lose time.

The length is easily the best player on the team two years ago. But it fell out of favor due to a recent injury and inconsistency. The length is not an elite left tackle after he and a risk of injury. But the heavy Command salary when he becomes a free agent in March. Violations Miami certainly does not seem to be great without him against New England.

"Jake is a great player, and it's hard to lose a player like him," said Dolphins running back Reggie Bush. "His presence will certainly not be forgotten. But football should go, and the person to come in and do the job. '

Miami rookie second-rounder Jonathan Martin has moved from right to left tackle. She is the best option in the list and will be auditioning for the left tackle job if the term is for a period of time.

Martin played left tackle at Stanford, where he was the personal protector for quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts Andrew luck. Martin will not be embarrassed in his first action at left tackle in the NFL and did some good things.

"I think I did well," Martin said after the game. "I [left tackle] a little rusty. It's like a mirror image [right tackle]. You just remember how your muscles feel and how you feel your balance. '

The Patriots beat the Miami area on Sunday to win his tenth title in 12 years AFC East. But the good news is that dolphins have a lot of cap space in 2013 and five draft picks in the first three rounds of patching the hole.

More than 800,000 customers lost power at some point PECO during the storm, breaking the record of 520,000 ice storm. "It's definitely historic record for us," said Williamson. Across the Delaware River in South Jersey, the deficiency was more surprising.

PSE & G is the creation of a service station and wait for the waters recede before we can assess the damage, the equipment dry and replace equipment as needed and re-energize the system to restore service. It is a slow and laborious process. ' Jersey Central Power & Light service also destroyed by Sandy, with 965,000 homes and businesses - about 90 percent of the 1.09 million customers - touched off the net by storm. That number is half of the day on more than 20,000 since morning. Not surprisingly, the counties most affected by the sea coast (206 000) and Monmouth (245,000), according to the web site utilities. Atlantic City Electric, which serves most of southern New Jersey - Gloucester County from Long Beach Island - Reports 181,000 deficit this afternoon. This is slightly lower than in the morning, but it's actually in the two districts, the Atlantic, with about 81,000 customers, and the sea with 59,000. In fact, many of South Jersey has acquired a strange sensation on with a wide swath of the city was dark. The streets are full of fallen trees, branches and utility lines. Many roads were closed. Street light at the intersection of the range. In southeastern Pennsylvania, Bucks Most missing and Montgomery County.

After the restoration of electrical substations and essential services such as hospitals, utilities comply with the largest deficit in the first, Williamson said. This means that the number is likely to decrease significantly in the coming days, a surprising number of small jobs take longer to complete. For example, 44,000 customers will leave Delmarva Power represents more than 1,200 separate issue - an average of about 40 homes or businesses in any repair work.

Last year, the MBTA has been criticized by almost completely during Hurricane Irene, said Davey.

'Star Wars Episode 7' And Disney: Five burning questions

Not long ago, here, in a galaxy far, Disney bought Lucasfilm, and the new "Star Wars" film was born. Disney latest acquisition and the announcement of "Star Wars Episode 7" which is easily one of the most energy and polarization of the call in the history of pop culture. Seventh film in the series "Star Wars" long rumored, and will soon become a reality, under the supervision of Disney no less. But the news just hours old, many questions still surround the Jedi back to the big screen. Here are five of them. Call Function The implications of "Episode 7" prequel titles put the land and the original trilogy. Grass scary for several reasons, the main ... well, that's coming back? Harrison Ford is hard to imagine boarding the coldness gave Han Solo reprise of "Star Wars" in recent years, but Millennium Falcon cargo box on their doorstep. It is easy to see how the other franchise really - as C-3PO actor Anthony Daniels or Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew - could return without the promise of equal pay. There is also a possibility that he feared: remodeling. We shudder to think. Play these By The Book Although theater history ends with "Return of the Jedi", "Star Wars" saga continues in the way of novels, comics, video games and more. There are countless stories of adventure kept records of Luke Skywalker and his friends from me - but Disney will feel obliged to respect the continuity is known only to the most dedicated "Star Wars" fans, or they can take their own histories to bear when a general public is bigger? How about George? Many fans believe that the founder of the franchise should be an example to the ongoing story. Others, like they were burned by the prequel trilogy and seemingly endless Lucas "Star Wars" changes, the possibility YUB-nubbing Ewok in their finery now. No matter how involved Lucas on, one thing is clear: simply handed the keys to one of the biggest film franchises of all time with one of the best of all time. To riff Darth Vader in his own words, Luke is a student, and Mickey is a master now. Who George again? If Lucas was not repping rebellion, Disney is entering the spotlight franchise? A big name is needed to lead the "Star Wars" in the future, someone with name recognition, people with facts geek community. "Star Trek" J. J. Helmer Abrams is obvious, but is committed otherwise, options such as "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon - though will have their hands full with their own Disney franchise. Regardless of the choice of Disney, Joe can not just be a director, a name they need to convince the fans to be one of the most important stories of all time genre is in good hands. Does this press release, right? Is the Empire wins? Like, if Luke and Leia and Han and lack any and everything that is wrong with the world today? No go. Disney "Star Wars" is a scary idea, of course, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Heck, even a good one. Think of the possibilities: the Pixar animation "The Wars" thread, does not change the original trilogy on Blu-ray (where Luke stubborn at this point, Disney will only see the dollar signs), and a new adventure starring some of the most iconic characters in film history. More "Star Wars" came with a lot of risk, but also a lot of potential reward. As Yoda so clever is called "... Do not treat or "For better or worse, Disney did. And that takes some serious balls spatial size.

NBC to guarantee the rights of the Premier League football

NBC network will broadcast English Premier League under $ 250 million, three years from next season. Show all matches most popular football league in the world, taking the coverage outside Fox and ESPN. "The Barclays Premier League was the first football league in the world, and on the cusp of an exponential growth in popularity here in the U.S.," said NBC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus Sunday. The company has taken the Major League Soccer last year and had success with broadcasting football during the London Olympics. The criticism for the use of tape delay, due to the time difference in the Olympics, NBC will not to play in the Premier League, said Lazarus. English dissemination is critical to the cable channel NBC Sports Network, Telemundo and mun2 to be used for coverage of Spain. English-language broadcast network NBC Live six games of the week. One or two other channels cable companies are also used, Lazarus said, but have not yet determined the schedule evaluated. Other games will be broadcast live online. The company is trying to expand the audience of NBC Sports Network, which was renamed from Versus after its owner, Comcast Corp., took over NBCUniversal. "I think we have a set of assets with a unique appeal of men who thrive very attractive to advertisers and attractive to cable operators," says Lazarus. And football is a potential growth area for most of the allowances under the contract in the sport, but NBC recently signed an agreement with Formula One car racing series. NBC Sports Network is the largest property NHL, running the same season in English football. EPL is an excellent complement to the hockey network coverage, Lazarus, adding live football matches in the morning and afternoon to primetime broadcast of the NHL. "It's a sport skewing younger than some others out there, as part of the championship series today," said Lazaro, a clear reference to Major League Baseball, and older viewers.

EPL, said NBC will give "the largest commitment and wider promotion and never in the United States" for the league. "The NBC Sports Group has an excellent track record in sports broadcasting," said chief executive Richard Scudamore EPL.

Google Nexus 4: A closer look at the new flagship Android phone

Become a fan of Android is a bit like a kid in a candy store right now. Along with the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and release all the new features offered, Google has officially unveiled two new devices Nexus: Nexus 4, the new flagship phone which was very unexpected, Nexus 10, a high-end 10-inch tablet made by Samsung. We are a close look at the Nexus 4, right? This phone combines the basic structure of its own design sense LG Optimus M with Google Android software and pure. Prepare, band: Telephone agree to provide true Android experience - and is likely to deliver the goods. Nexus 4: LG hardware design Google LG Google NexusYou clearly see the LG Optimus Foundation Nexus G 4, but make no mistake about it: This is the core Nexus phone. The Nexus 4 stones 4.7 cm. True HD IP familiar display Nexus style curved glass. At first glance, the shape actually resembles the Galaxy Nexus that preceded it. Think about the size? With Nexus four 2.7-inch x 5.3 and 0.36. Thick. It weighs 4.9 oz. Even though the screen is larger, and in fact it does about the same size and weight as the Galaxy Nexus - just SKOSH hair thicker and heavier, but probably not enough to be too obvious. Larger screen is far from the only thing that separates you new Nexus younger, however. In general, this line of LG developed the device feels more solid and durable than the plasticky style approach favored by Samsung. With Nexus 4 Googley put a surprising twist in the design of LG phones back, with patterns, premium materials like sleek classic look wallpaper Nexus. Apart from the aesthetic exterior, Nexus 4 screen has a resolution of 1280 x 768 at 320ppi, all protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Based on the time I spend Optimus M, which uses the same screen technology, I hope the quality of the picture in a beautiful wild. And that's just the beginning. Nexus 4: Power, power, power LG Nexus 4Under its hood, the new Nexus 4 packs a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM complete. With this configuration, Optimus zoom G along as fast as any other Android phone I've ever seen, pure software joins Google should provide comparable - and probably better - ridiculous rate. With Nexus 4 is an 8-megapixel camera - a big step in the 5-megapixel lens Galaxy Nexus, which is widely seen the Achilles heel. If Optimus G is any indication, I suspect the camera on the Nexus 4 good, though perhaps not good in the camera so high-end that is used in mobile phones like HTC X and A S. Fourth Nexus One also features a 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front for video chat and all the self-nudie photos always welcome (perverted silly, silly). With Nexus 4 with either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, and - following the typical pattern of Nexus - unfortunately does not support SD cards. Wireless charging cradle, however, and it looks very delicate area wireless charging (yes, sphere) accessories. With Nexus 4 is a 2100mAh battery listing 15.3 hours of talk time and 390 hours standby. Nexus 4: The core problem Okay, let's get to the point: Google is primarily focused on direct sales of Nexus, release 4 which is not a big surprise after the disaster Verizon Galaxy Nexus. You will be able to grab the version GSM / HSPA + phone on November 13 Google Play Store. (There are versions of LTE -. Honcho Android chief Andy Rubin anything described as making "tactical") Translation? For those of us in the U.S., the phone will work on any T-Mobile or AT & T HSPA + 4G speeds, levels, I would buy the absolute Google and then use either your current plan or a new plan. You can also choose to use it with a prepaid smart plan - something I highly recommend considering. 8 GB version of the device will be available for $ 300 and the 16GB version for $ 350. The phone will be launched in the U.S., UK, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Australia, says Google Europe, Central America and South America, Asia, CIS and the Middle East will continue later this month. (In the U.S., T-Mobile will also be selling the 16GB version of the phone for $ 200 with a new two-year contract. Between you and me, however, most people will do better by buying direct Google and then select the appropriate use of plants with no contract) . Power TwitterSome Android start the week, huh? And we're just scratching the surface. I'm going to spend a lot of time in Nexus 4 and 10 by Nexus in the coming days and share my detailed hand impressions with you soon.

Union honcho: National Grid storm ignore our advice

Head of unions representing thousands of workers utility front lines Storms Sandy said National Grid officials ignore their advice on how to improve the response time in the middle of another big storm - a claim denied by the company.

"It's almost like a tale of two utility companies," said Dan Hurley, president of Local 369 Utility Workers Union of America, with about 600 to 700 NSTAR 1,900 other employees under the National Grid. "NSTAR seem to heed our advice, and the National Grid, for the moment, they might have a better plan. We are trying to improve their answers and we hit the wall. '

In response, National Grid officials said that "the amount of input from our employees," and to actually apply the advice "of the union to decentralize the operations during major weather events."

"We appreciate the work of frontline employees as we work to restore power to all of our customers as quickly and safely as possible," said a statement from the National Grid.

At 05:30, more than 294,000 people without power in the state as Sandy approached mainland, according to the utility.

Utility giant has been criticized both last year, following the response to Tropical Storm Irene and the late October surprise snowstorm that killed thousands of people in the dark. Attorney General Martha Coakley proposed NSTAR fined $ 10 million and $ 16 million National Grid to effectively stop the emergency response team personnel fallen power lines and communicate with customers and people. The fines are pending before the Department of Public Utility.

Post-Irene, NSTAR said Hurley meets union leaders, who participated in the so-called "occasional committee meetings storm" trade input in making better response. He said union officials who proposed simplifies the process of sending workers to the affected areas, and more.

"Union leaders have given us information about the logistics Services personnel, such as when sense to change the schedule to better use our resources," said NSTAR spokeswoman Caroline Pretyman, citing the inclusion of the union " very useful "to respond to customers. "We also took their suggestions on where to build a new staging location so they pre-positioned to respond."

But Hurley said that even a recent Friday, a meeting with National Grid "does not really go anywhere."

"It seems that when a hurricane, there are too many cooks in the kitchen and be able to let workers go out and do what they do," says Hurley. "We tried to explain to the National Grid, but with different rules.

"It is a matter of pride to men and women," he added, referring to public service workers. "The men and women out there want to get power. Who better to develop a response plan or help plan the development of the respondent on the road? '
