Clarksville City Council Regular Session Recap for December 13th, 2012

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville City Council met on Thursday, December 13th, not the Charter-mandated first Thursday of the month date, for its regular session. It was interesting that, as part of the agenda, the approval of prior council meeting minutes is required.

The usual council regular session should have met December 6th, but the mayor went out of the country and evidently did not want to miss the council meeting, so she moved it. However, the mayor had the council minutes written for a December 6th council meeting stating that due to a lack of a quorum, no meeting was held and the agenda would be considered on December 13th. «Read the rest of this article»

NASA funded researchers report on the Fall of the Maya Civilization, “They Did it to Themselves”

 

Written by Dauna Coulter
Science at NASA

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – For 1200 years, the Maya dominated Central America. At their peak around 900 A.D., Maya cities teemed with more than 2,000 people per square mile — comparable to modern Los Angeles County.

Even in rural areas the Maya numbered 200 to 400 people per square mile. But suddenly, all was quiet. And the profound silence testified to one of the greatest demographic disasters in human prehistory — the demise of the once vibrant Maya society.
