#AceHistoryNews says my latest post for “New Years Eve and New years Day” and here is a small extract of both.
New Year’s Eve is December 31 of every year. It is celebrated in countries that use the Gregorian calendar with the United States, Australia, British Isles, North & South America, Europe, Scandinavia and (the former) Soviet Union as the main regions in the world who welcome in a new year.
It is exactly at the stroke of midnight on December 31 of the current year that marks the transition to the New Year ahead. Celebrations may be wild parties or solemn times of prayer. Some participants will dress up in silly outfits and wear comical hats, drink champagne (or other liquors of their choice) and use traditional items called “noise makers” to express their joy and hope for the new year ahead. Unfortunately, with some people this celebratory behaviour gets taken a bit too far. Some people have been known to make improper advances to co-workers at parties, throw their arms around total strangers on the streets or in crowds and well perhaps to other things that would be considered totally unacceptable any other day of the year.
New Years Day January 1st is considered New Years Day in today’s society. But this is a new concept because up until the time of Julius Caesar, the Romans celebrated the New Year in March because it was the first month in the Roman calendar. However, January 1 marked the time when the Romans changed their governmental figures and new consuls were inducted into office. And, they had games and feasting to help celebrate the new officials. But, they still used March 1 as their official mark of the new year and had a festival to their god, Mars (God of War).
It was Caesar who changed the Roman New Year’s Day to January 1 in honour of Janus, (God of all beginnings and gate-keeper of heaven and earth). Janus was always depicted with two faces: One looking back to the old year (past) and one looking ahead to the new year (future). One of the customs in the festival honouring Janus was to exchange gifts and then make resolutions to be friendly and good to one another.
The Jewish-Roman historian Josephus wrote that Jish was the last city in the Galilee region to fall to the Romans in the first Jewish war (66-73 CE)–but it remained a large Jewish village (known as Gush Halav) until as late at the 15th century.
Since that time, the population of Jish has changed repeatedly both as a result of natural factors (an 1837 earthquake destroyed the city) and strife–with Jews, Christians, and Muslims coming and going. Today, the population is 55% Maronite Christian, 35% Greek Orthodox, and 10% Muslim.
The demography of the town is interesting enough, but what is unique about the town is language.Though everyone is the town speaks Hebrew and Arabic, the older Maronites in Jish still speak Syriac Aramaic–the ancient Semitic language that belongs to the same family as Hebrew.
Aramaic was the language of the parts of the Tannach(such as passages in the books of Daniel and Ezra), but it is most commonly identified as being the language spoken in Samaria and Judea at the time of Jesus.
Today all Maronite religious services are still chanted in Aramaic; however, most of the young people of Jish don’t understand what they are saying.
The recorded history of Gibraltar (pictured in 1782) spans over 2,900 years. First inhabited 50,000 years ago by the Neanderthals, Gibraltar may have been one of their last refuges before their extinction. To the Carthaginians and Romans it was one of the Pillars of Hercules at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. Moors from North Africa first settled and fortified it, calling it Jebel al-Tarik, later corrupted into Gibraltar. Castile contested it and eventually conquered it in 1462, after which it became part of Spain. An Anglo-Dutch force seized it in 1704. It was ceded to Britain under the Treaty of Utrecht, signed on 13 July 1713. Spain unsuccessfully besieged Gibraltar in 1704, 1727 and 1779–83; its status is still disputed. The territory became a British Crown colony and an important trading post and base for the Royal Navy during the Peninsular War. During the Second World War it was a key British garrison, controlling access to the Mediterranean. Gibraltar’s fourteen sieges have led to it becoming “one of the most densely fortified and fought over places in Europe”. Today it is a self-governing British Overseas Territory with an economy based largely on financial services, shipping and tourism.
Since 1985, Gibraltar has undergone major changes as a result of reductions in Britain’s overseas defence commitments. Most British forces have left the territory, which is no longer seen as a place of major military importance. Its economy is now based on tourism, financial services, shipping and Internet gambling. Gibraltar is largely self-governed, with its own parliament and government, though the UK maintains responsibility for defence and foreign policy. Its economic success has made it one of the wealthiest areas of the European Union.
I obtained a video just recently relating to 1954 by coincidence date of my birth! It made very interesting listening and just stumbled on this article! An excellent read and well worth knowing who is behind the scenes, manipulating our world!

Environmental think tank aspired to global matrix of manufactured consent
Recently unearthed documents from the private collection of former diplomat and Bilderberg regular George C. McGhee have revealed (among other things) that the Club of Rome in 1970 wanted to create a “global matrix approach”, or G-Matrix approach, as a means of bringing people into an enviro-eugenicist mindset globally.
The Club of Rome was an influential think tank, advocating among other things worldwide population reduction and global environmental governance.
The author of the uncovered manuscript from 1970 was Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei, who founded the Club of Rome in 1968. Peccei wrote that any acceptance of the Club’s conclusions “relies heavily on a global matrix approach”. Furthermore he writes that these conclusions by the infamous Club (which includes advocacy of worldwide population reduction) can only be generally accepted “through (…) an iterative, global…
Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was a German-language writer of novels and short stories, and is regarded as one of the most influential authors of the
20th century. His works, such as “Die Verwandlung” (“The Metamorphosis”), Der Process (The Trial), and Das Schloss (The Castle), are filled with themes and archetypes of alienation, brutality, parent–child conflict, and mystical transformations. Kafka was born into a middle-class Jewish family in Prague, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He trained as a lawyer and worked for an insurance company, writing in his spare time – he complained all his life about his lack of time to write. Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family and close female friends, including his fiancée Felice Bauer. Only a few of Kafka’s stories appeared during his lifetime in story collections and literary magazines. His novels and other unfinished works were published posthumously, mostly by his friend Max Brod, who ignored his wish to have the manuscripts destroyed. Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre are among the writers influenced by Kafka’s work; the term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe surreal situations like those in his writing.
Just really enjoyed reading this and wanted to post it to inspire others in their writing! When first l start a blog l was not a writer and as my life had been filled full of woe, l could not express my feelings about certain, situations.
I worked in so many jobs and writing was just a way to pass the time, but God had other ideas and through a world of pain l was able to find a way to express myself! So much so that all that feeling walled up in my heart, came pouring out onto paper! The problem was l could not share it with anyone all l could do was share other people’s writing and scribblings! After a few years of reading all across the web l was able to share a little, and it made me feel better! Then l could relate and feel for other people and release the pain in my heart and life onto paper. Some people send me comments just saying you’re a great writer and marvellous post, but their comment is related to sites that sell shoes, clothes or other products!
These people were just like me and they are all searching for what they want to say, but are so scared, as l was to tell people, just in case they look foolish! But just be yourself, and say how you feel, and use my blog’s if this will help, as l will not judge your writings, as l know how you feel!
So if you have time leave a comment and please share your thoughts an feelings about writing, as people think it looks so easy, but for me it took time to flow!
The words that now come to mind, are “The light was amongst us and we comprehended it not” well l was in the dark and one day God switched the light on in my heart.
1807 was a momentous year in British history as it brought the abolition of the slave trade. Yet it is estimated that today around the world there are more slaves being held captive than ever before. Organisations like The Salvation Army have never ceased to raise awareness of the continuing problem and in the 126 countries in which we operate, human trafficking is a high priority and we respond in practical ways depending on the local need and our resources.
So where are the 21st century slaves? Yes, there are children held in parts of Africa, harvesting cocoa beans to make our chocolate; women in Asia are trapped and exploited to make the cheap clothes that we wear and discard; and in the South Pacific men are enslaved on ships. However, people are also enslaved right on our doorstep, living in our communities, in the UK. They are often hidden but not necessarily invisible; you may see them but not recognise them; but you can help them. http://www.localgov.co.uk/index.cfm?method=news.detail&id=109966
I was reading today on my news feed about the same thing happening in modern-day Hong Kong, and how domestics have their wages taken from them, by their so-called employers. This being in the name of being allowed to have a job! Will try to find the link to the post and add it to my comment!
Thanks for a great post and video will download and watch it in full on my desktop.

“Slavery by Another Name is a 90-minute documentary that challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality. It was a system in which men, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold, and coerced to do the bidding of masters. Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the 20th century.
For most Americans this is entirely new history. Slavery by Another Name gives voice to the largely forgotten victims and perpetrators of forced labor and features their descendants living today.”
