809-806 BC

Adad-Nirari III tries to stabilize the declining situation in Assyria. The provinces have been neglected by his father who was bent on revenge on Babylonia, which now lies crushed to the south, but in the north the growing power of Urartu can no longer be ignored.

We take a look at religion in Urartu. Their main god is Haldi, worshipped in the House of Weapons.

The many pharaohs of Egypt are still very confusing.

We also learn more about the Upanishads and meet an indian mathematician.

13. RAF del 1

Tre timmar efter mordet ringer det i den hemliga telefonen hos ambassadtjänstemannen Peter T på svenska ambassaden i Bonn. “Det här är RAF. Vi har skjutit er stadsminister!”

Rote Arme Fraktion (RAF, Baader-Meinhof Ligan) hade ockuperat Västtysklands ambassad i Stockholm 1975 och Norbert Kröcher från 2:a Juni-rörelsen hade försökt kidnappa Anna-Greta Leijon 1977. Olof Palme hade fattat beslut i båda dessa sammanhang som direkt missgynnade eller till och med dödade RAF-medlemmar.

Var det för att hämnas sina fallna kamrater som RAF sköt Olof Palme i hörnet Sveavägen-Tunnelgatan kvällen den 28:e februari 1986? För att utreda den frågan måste vi först förstå vilka Baader-Meinhof ligan var och vad de kämpade för.

12. GH Christer A del 3 – Gärningsbeskrivningen

I det avslutande avsnittet om Christer A får han själv komma till tals och försvara sig i en intervju med Aftonbladet. Vi tar även del av ännu mer kritik mot PUs utredning av Christer A samt försöker oss på en första gärningsbeskrivning; Hur gick det till när Christer A mördare Olof Palme?

Han var innehavaren av den sista revolvern PU aldrig fick provskjuta. Han hatade Palme. Palme hade ruinerat honom. Han var en mästerskytt. Han bodde i närheten av mordplatsen och hade alltså både motiv och vapen. Han stämde in bäst av alla på Gärningsmannaprofilen från 1994. Vem var han och varför blev han aldrig åtalad för mordet på Olof Palme?

Common Pauper Cards Legal in Modern

If you are looking to adapt a Pauper list to the Modern Pauper format, here is a look at the top 4 archetypes and which cards carry over from winning lists. I will add more decks to this article when I have a bit more time, but hope this will help get started.

How to test.

  1. Download a Pauper list and import it into MTGO as a Modern list.
  2. Immediately remove any cards flagged as “Not legal for this format.”
  3. In the sets filter, check each set from 8th Edition and up, ignoring “Timeshifted.” If you include SOI this will be 53 sets.
  4. Set the rarity filter to “Common.”
  5. OPTIONAL: Set low slider on quantity to “0” if you want to search cards you may not own.
  6. Using this filter, search for each remaining card in the list.
  7. If your card shows up when you search, this means it is legal. If it does not show up, the card is not legal. You can check your results using the lists below to verify if you are doing it right.

NOTE: Using the “format” filter won’t work, as it will show cards like Rancor that have been printed at common, though not in a Modern legal set. You have to use the “set” filter instead to filter out these cards.

Women in Sparta

This is part 3 of our Sparta trilogy before doing the narrative of the 8th Century BC.

This time we look at the situation for women in Sparta. Sparta was quite a good place to live if you were a woman in the ancient world. Still, being a woman in the ancient world was quite difficult.

We need your help to get past 701BC with this story. Help us reach the 7th Century BC. Please consider supporting the Fan of History on Patreon here: http://www.patreon.com/fanofhistory

11. GH Christer A del 2

Det är dags för polisen att ta in Christer A för förhör.

I detta det 11:e avsnittet av podcasten Palmemordet träffar vi återigen mannen som är känd under många namn: C, GH, Christer Petterssons Dubbelgångare, Christer A eller Daytradern.

Han var innehavaren av den sista revolvern PU aldrig fick provskjuta. Han hatade Palme. Palme hade ruinerat honom. Han var en mästerskytt. Han bodde i närheten av mordplatsen och hade alltså både motiv och vapen. Han stämde in bäst av alla på Gärningsmannaprofilen från 1994. Vem var han och varför blev han aldrig åtalad för mordet på Olof Palme?
