Virtual Reconstruction of the Antikythera Mechanism
Youtube Video - entry: 24-01-2012

The Antikythera mechanism is the oldest known complex scientific calculator. It contains many gears, and is sometimes called the first known analog computer,[9] although its flawless manufacturing suggests that it may have had a number of undiscovered predecessors[10] during the Hellenistic Period. It appears to be constructed upon theories of astronomy and mathematics developed by Greek astronomers and it is estimated that it was made around 150-100 BC. See the Youtube Video of the virtual model by Mogi Vicentini, based on the theoretical and mechanical model by Michael Wright. Copyright: Mogi Vicentini and Michael Wright.

UAC 2012 – Venus on the Rise!
United Astrology Conference - May 24-29, 2012, New Orleans

The United Astrology Conference (UAC) is the place to be in 2012. It is “the Olympics of astrology and our own academy awards, all rolled into one”, as Astrologer Glenn Perry put it. Being at UAC reminds one of attending a huge university campus – with approximately fifty astrology classes taught each day, offered by 160 speakers from about 20 countries!

The May 24-29 Conference is the 8th UAC and the 2nd taking place in the Big Easy, at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel. It is co-sponsored by the main astrological associations of America: Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA) and Council of Vedic Astrology (CVA). They already organized the last conference in Denver 2008, which attracted 1600 attendees.

When the best minds in the field of astrology come together new insights will be shared - on the important year of 2012 which brings some of the most powerful celestial patterns we can experience in a lifetime. Politically, 2012 is again - like 2008 - a US Presidential Election year. Last not least, the largest gathering of professional astrologers is the perfect opportunity to renew old friendships and/or make new ones.

The main Conference is framed by Pre- and Post-Conference Workshops. Name astrologers such as Nick Campion, Bernadette Brady, Melanie Reinhart, Ray Merriman or Richard Tarnas will be speaking on special topics.

The UAC is also famous for its social events: the ceremonial official opening on Thursday, the music event on Friday - with Cajun food, hot band and bowling at a local club in New Orleans. On Saturday the Master of entertainment, Michael Lutin, makes fun of "OMG, The Mayans Were Right", time for celebration is finally on Monday with a Banquet and the Regulus Awards.
