Watch Beyond 50's video book trailer on "Dancing at the Edge of Death: The Origins of the Labyrinth in the Paleolithic" that was written by Jodi Lorimer. Find out how the first modern humans in Paleolithic Europe painted the labyrinth journey to the Otherworld on the walls of deep caves over 32,000 years ago. Ancient shamans mapped the route of the labyrinth revealing the complex minds and spirit of a sophisticated people. To understand the significance of this mythological symbol requires that we dig into the very core of human experience and tread the paradoxical paths of belief and biology, history and myth, and discover where they cross over into transcendence, at the Center where the Minotaur (half-man, half-bull) resides. For more information, visit www.dancing-at-the-edge****. *Narration by author, Jodi Lorimer. Video tour of the Lascaux Cave courtesy of the Ministry of France. **Produced and syndicated by Joy and Daniel Davis of Beyond 50 Productions.

In this HOD clip, Death-Thanos is trying to construct a letter to fellow gods who support an Over throw of the Zeus run organization THE UNIVERSAL COUNCIL when his love struck beautiful concubine Menthe shows up. I love this character as she is one of the few other ladies besides Persephone that is mentioned in folklore. Menthe tried her damnedest to ensure that Persephone does not sit on the throne in her stead, which makes for some great fireworks between the two ladies... ABOUT MENTHE: Minthe(Menthe) was a beautiful water nymph deeply in love with Hades (Pluto), the Greek God of the Underworld. One day, while Hades' wife Persephone was strolling along the river Acheron (the river of woes), she stumbled upon her husband and his mistress Menthe. Infuriated as she was, she took revenge by transforming Menthe into a herbaceous, tiny plant, with inconspicuous leaves so that she would easily be stepped upon. Pluto, however, showed mercy for Menthe and, on his try to comfort her, he endowed Menthe with an divine, aromatic scent to last forever.

Phelios review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Phelios from Namco for the SEGA Genesis. Phelios is a shooter with a unique theme. No asteroids, no planets, no little green men...but flying horses, instead. Namco released this game to arcades about two years prior to porting it to the Genesis, where the game fit right in. There were a lot of cool non-space shooters on SEGA's console, and this is definitely one of the coolest. You play as Apollo, who rides on Pegasus and shoots fireballs from a sword. That's pretty badass. You have to save Artemis with your fire breathing sword. This video review features video gameplay footage of Phelios for the SEGA Genesis and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

The word Pankration is a Greek word which translated means "all powers" or "all powerful", both are acceptable translations by Greek scholars. Pankration was a sporting event in the ancient Greek Olympic games that was first introduced in the games of 648 BC. The rules of the sport were simple, no biting or eye gouging and victory was secured through knockout, submission or death. The historical records of the early pankration are shrouded and mixed with Greek mythology and it is not known whether these accounts of championship bouts and feats of strength of the champions were myth or actual accounts. What is known is that just like the boxers and wrestlers of the Olympic games the Pankration competitors refined their skills for many generations through hundreds of years and became extremely proficient at all elements of their sport including ground fighting and submission holds to standing fighting with all types of strikes. Many of the holds, throws and striking techniques can be seen on the pottery, statues and drawings of those times. The ancient Olympic games were intertwined with many ceremonies and connections to the worship of gods that were pagan to the rising christian population. Because of this association and the rise of christianity the games eventually came to a halt and along with it Pankration competition disappeared for many centuries. The Olympic games were eventually adopted and reborn throughout the world alternating the competition in a new country every 4 years, however, Pankration competition was not included. It is only because of the sparse historical records and the special interests of a few individuals that Pankration is having a rebirth in this generation. The current wave of "no holds barred" and pay per view fighting events has brought with it a curiosity and interest to it's ancient predecessor Pankration. Just as the boxing venue grew and evolved from ancient Greece to Madison square garden and the rest of the world, the skills, techniques, training methods, rules, attire and safety measures have also evolved. For the most part this evolution has been beneficial to the sport and it's participants. Now after centuries ancient Greek Pankration is getting the opportunity to become Modern Pankrationin the same way as it's brother boxing did. There is only one major organization today that holds and sanctions events as Pankration events. That organization is the U.F.C.F.: United Full Contact Federation. The Pankration division of the U.F.C.F. was founded by Matt Hume, a professional fighter, with a vision and desire to see the sport that he has a passion for evolve to the level that modern boxing has, and with it the Pankration competitors would get the respect and benefits that go along with that type of growth and evolution. While the U.F.C.F. is the only major sanctioning body that uses the name Pankration there are certainly other organizations that hold events under the same concept. The two largest and most well known U.S. organizations are Battlecade's Extreme fighting and S.E.G.'s Ultimate challenge events. In Japan, Brazil, and Russia there are also some large organizations that hold their events under the Pankration concept. The Shooto organization in Japan, founded by Satoru Sayama, was started based on his studies of ancient Pankration and has been holding competitions for 20 years. Another organization in Japan utilized the Pankration concept and calls themselves Pancrace. Even though only a few of the many modern organizations relate their begining to the evolution of ancient Pankration, all of the previously stated events are modern versions of the ancient sport. There are a few differences between the rules, fighters attire, time limits and a few other issues between these organizations but the same was true of boxing as it evolved through many countries and sanctioning bodies to become the sport it is today.

This song is full of The Bible, Greek mythology, and Shakespeare. Plus all kinds of ambiguity. Kind of made to order for the English Literature student. It is a song of temptaion and salvation. Kind of a shortened religious history of Man and Woman.

ipodity**** -educational videos for your mobile phone.-AUDIOBOOKS ans CLASSIC POETRY. -Zeus (IPA: /zjuːs/) in Greek mythology is the king of the gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the sky and thunder. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. In addition to his Indo-European inheritance, the classical "cloud-gatherer" also derives certain iconographic traits from the cultures of the ancient Near East, such as the scepter. Zeus is frequently depicted by Greek artists in one of two poses: standing, striding forward, with a thunderbolt leveled in his raised right hand, or seated in majesty.

A trailer for the novel of the dicovery of an underground world beneath the Antarctic icecap. Survivors of two races exist there . The humans and the Chevii continue to war against each other. Twelve thousand years ago a war between the Amran humans and their rivals the Ramans(existing near and around India ) caused a cataclysm that lay waste to the world and each other. A group of Americans strive to foil the plans of a mad Argentine colonel and his men who seek to capture the lost technology from the buried civilization. Amra brings forth elements from the Atlantis myth along with a possible explanation for some parts of greek mythology. This is the first book in the 'Predecessor' series. Amra is available from Amazon****, 1800buybook, and is stocked at selected Borders Book stores. This trailer was previously submitted by me but was accidentally deleted by a friend By the way I have one bad review on Amazon by a guy named Penpal who I have had a running 'discussion' with who is nasty to say the least . I had three of his reviews taken down before Amazon let him keep the current one up. But I may yet have the last laugh as Amra is being considered for option at Sony Pictures
