Some highlights from video footage taken during two separate trips to the ancient city of Ephesus in modern day Turkey. I composed the original orchestral music score myself. Ephesus was one of the most important cities in the Greco/Roman world. The famed temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, once stood here, but very little of it remains today. The Apostle Paul visited Ephesus along with Aquila and Priscilla around 52 C.E. He returned (probably in the Winter of 52 or 53 C.E.) and remained for two years. Later, around 60 - 61 C.E., Paul wrote the letter to the Ephesians for the congregation in Ephesus.

This is the theme of Alexander and Pericles in Civilization IV. It's a great song, and was the Civilization III Greco-Roman diplomacy theme. (Thanks ElleMao!) I have included the first and the third versions of this music from Civilization IV in this video. However, I have excluded the second version, since it sounded like crap and didn't really fit in with the others. Enjoy!

The Russian martial art of Sambo was developed in the first several decades of the 20th century, in the wake of the Bolshevik Revolution and the fall of the czarist regime. A martial arts training program within the Bolsheviks Red Army produced a new hand-to-hand combat system derived partly from traditional Russian and other native regional wrestling or grappling styles and influenced by various foreign martial arts, notably Judo and Jujitsu, as well as the traditional Olympic sports of boxing and Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling. The new system was dubbed Sambo (sometimes written Sombo or SAMBO), which is an acronym of the Russian words Samozaschita Bez Orujiya, or self-defense without weapon. From the beginning, Sambo has been a constantly changing system, adapting itself to fit the needs of its fighters, from soldiers on the battlefields of World War II to crime fighters on the streets of Moscow. Today, Sambo is practiced in three distinct ways: as a competitive sport, as a self-defense method and as a lethal combat system employed by police and military forces. Sometimes incorrectly referred to as Russian Judo, Sambo was recognized as an official sport in 1938. It was included in the Olympic Games in Moscow in 1980 as a demonstration sport, though it failed to gain the popularity necessary to become a competitive event. As a self-defense method, Sambo is based on body movements and joint locks, combined with punches and kicks, all aimed at defending ones self without injuring the attacker more than is necessary. Specific techniques help defend against various types of attacks, including weapons, choke holds or direct foot or hand strikes. The combat version of Sambo takes the sport and self-defense techniques to the next level, including more vicious kicks, punches, throws and spine locks and even dirtier techniques such as biting, which is outlawed in sport competition. Fighters also learn techniques that can be used to fight in small, enclosed spaces, on the floor or against more than one opponent. A number of fighters trained in Sambo have found success in the realm of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), another no-holds-barred fighting style popularized by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) competitions in the United States and the PRIDE Fighting Championships of Japan.

Covering an area of about 1,001,450 square kilometers (386,560 square miles), Egypt borders Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the east. The northern coast borders the Mediterranean Sea and the eastern coast borders the Red Sea. Egypt is One of the Most Populous Countries in Africa. The vast majority of its estimated 78 million people (2007) live near the banks of the Nile River (about 40,000 km² or 15,450 sq miles) where the only arable agricultural land is found.[1] Large areas of land form part of the Sahara Desert and are sparsely inhabited. Around half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta. Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx; the southern city of Luxor contains a particularly large number of ancient artifacts such as the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings.

The clip The Greco from Ocean's Thirteen (2007) with Eddie Izzard, George Clooney Well I give you back the 100 Grant. Why? Danny, I like you. And you, Rusty. I mean you got style. You're brillant, got loyalty. You two were the remarkable minds of a thievery well. but even they went off to borrow. You're analogue players in a digital world. You're done. Believe me, I would love to go up against Greco and crush him. But it can't be beaten. It can't be hacked and it can't be beaten. Not even by you? Oh with 18 months nothing else on my plate no other jobs, no women or distractions maybe. You know everything about this thing. Everything. Except where it was being deployed. The inventor is an old schoolmate of mine. His name is Greco Montgomery The pompous ass named it after himself. Greco? Roman? Yeah, you've obviously never served time in a Britsh boarding school. So what's so tough about this thing? It's an artificial intelligence security system. He must be field-testing. You mean it has a brain? A hell of a brain. It doesn't only think it reasons.

*******www.A3Network****. Bikini Party Miami Beach! The bikini is typically a women's two-piece swimsuit. One part of the attire covers the breasts and the other part covers the crotch and part of or the entire buttocks, leaving an uncovered area between the two. Merriam--Webster describes the bikini as "a woman's scanty two-piece bathing suit" or "a man's brief swimsuit". It is often worn in hot weather, while swimming or sunbathing. The shapes of both parts of a bikini resemble women's underwear, and the lower part can range from revealing thong or g-string to briefs. While two-piece bathing suits had been worn on the beach before, the modern bikini was invented by French engineer Louis Réard in 1946. He named it after Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, the site of the Operation Crossroads nuclear weapon tests in July that year. The bikini is perhaps the most popular female beachwear around the globe, according to French fashion historian Olivier Saillard due to "the power of women, and not the power of fashion". As he explains, "The emancipation of swimwear has always been linked to the emancipation of women. By the mid 2000s, bikinis had become a $811 million business annually, according to the NPD Group, a consumer and retail information company. The bikini has boosted spin-off services like bikini waxing and the sun tanning industries Predecessors of the bikini date to antiquity, in Çatalhöyük and the Greco-Roman world. Art dating from the Diocletian period (286--305 AD) in Villa Romana del Casale, Sicily depicts women in garments resembling bikinis in mosaics on the floor. The images of ten women, dubbed the "Bikini Girls", exercising in clothing that would pass as bikinis today are the most replicated mosaic among the 37 million colored tiles at the site. Archeological finds, particularly in Pompeii, show the Roman goddess Venus wearing a bikini. A statue of Venus in a bikini was found in a cupboard in the southwest corner in Casa della Venere, others were found in the front hall. A statue of Venus was recovered from the tablinum of the House of Julia Felix, and another from an atrium at the garden at Via Dell'Abbondanza. The groundwork for the modern bikini began to be laid in 1907, when Australian swimmer and performer Annette Kellerman was arrested on a Boston beach for wearing a form-fitting one-piece swimsuit, which became an accepted beach attire for women by 1910. In 1913, inspired by the introduction of women into Olympic swimming, designer Carl Jantzen made the first functional two-piece swimwear, a close-fitting one-piece with shorts on the bottom and short sleeves on top. By the 1930s, necklines plunged at the back, sleeves disappeared and sides were cut away. Hollywood endorsed the new glamour with films such as Neptune's Daughter in which Esther Williams wore provocatively named costumes such as "Double Entendre" and "Honey Child". With new materials like latex and nylon, by 1934 the swimsuit started hugging the body and had shoulder straps to lower for tanning. By the early 1940s two-piece swimsuits were frequent on American beaches. Hollywood stars such as Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth and Lana Turner tried similar swimwear or beachwear. Pin ups of Hayworth and Esther Williams in the costume were widely distributed. Finally, the modern bikini was introduced by French engineer Louis Réard and fashion designer Jacques Heim in Paris in 1946. Réard was a car engineer but by 1946 he was running his mother's lingerie boutique near Les Folies Bergères in Paris. Heim was working on a new kind of beach costume. It comprised two pieces, the bottom large enough to cover its wearer's navel. In May 1946, he advertised the bathing suit, known as the "Atome," as the world's "smallest bathing suit". Réard named his swimsuit the "bikini", taking the name from the Bikini Atoll, one of a series of islands in the South Pacific where testing on the new atomic bomb was occurring that summer. Historians assume Reard termed his swimsuit the "bikini" because he believed its revealing style would create reactions among people similar to those created by America's atomic bomb in Japan just one summer earlier.
