What the city is missing: Thierry Cohen photographs cityscapes and then photographs deserts at night, combing the two to show us what our cities would look like with the lights off. The stars are not enhanced, they are actual photos from relative latitudes that would expose the same starry sky view if it weren’t for light pollution. Click on each photo to see which city it is.

Fu Hao circa 1250 BCE

Shang Dynasty King Wu Ding cemented alliances by marrying one woman from each local tribe for a total of sixty wives. The best known of these wives was Fu (Lady) Hao. The details of Fu Hao’s life are largely lost to time, but inscriptions found in her Yinxu tomb describe her impressive military career.
Fu Hao led successful campaigns against the Tu-Fang, Yi, Qiang, and Ba with as many as 13,000 troops under her command. She is believed to be China’s first female general, but she is not the only military woman of her time. Oracle bones of the period name over a hundred female warriors.
Oracle bone inscriptions also indicate that Wu Ding allowed Fu Hao to conduct special rituals and offer sacrifices herself. As the Shang King controlled religious rituals, it is a sign of Wu Ding’s esteem that Fu Hao was was granted this privilege.
Fu Hao’s tomb was discovered in 1976 and it is the only intact royal tomb from the Shang Dynasty. Filled with works of art, weaponry, and sixteen human sacrifices, Fu Hao’s amazing tomb is a testament to the respect she garnered during her lifetime.

“When I get out from the hospital, I miss Roy very much. My mother told me that he plays in pictures and he does things that the other actors cannot do, like falling and hitting and when they climb on something, when they… I didn’t believe my mother, but then I saw him.”
ah yes but be wary. it’s on the cw.. and have you seen the clips. i think they are putting a supernatural twist or something. cause someone said something about visions in the sneak peak. but of course i will watch it anyways. lol
Yikes. Why can’t interesting women of history be good enough? At least, since it’s the cw, the actors will be attractive.
