Ghost Parcels Show How Urban Highways Squandered Valuable Land | Streetsblog Chicago
Here’s a great illustration of how incredibly destructive and wasteful it is to run elevated highways through cities. New York City-based artist and planning consultant Neil Freeman, who grew up in Chicago, put together these haunting images of Cook County land parcel maps superimposed over aerials of expressway interchanges in the West Loop, River West, Bridgeport and Chinatown.

Soviet Venus Images
"Most of what we know about Venus is derived from the intensive Soviet study of the planet. The only existing images from the surface were returned from four of their landing craft. Attempts to carry phototelevision cameras to Venus in 1962 and 1965 failed, but the Venera-9 orbiter performed the first long-term imaging survey of cloud circulation, in 1975."

Temple offerings (satukku)
> This is part of a list of grain offering (sá -dull su-a gi-na) for 12 deities. It was part of a larger tablet, with the edges having been purposefully cut off and the edges smoothed. The tablet has small fine writing, with 2 columns each side and a total of 109 lines. On column iii, lines 17-21 state: "sá-dull dingir-re-ne / 1800 se-gur / 40 gig gur / sà-gal-màs-anse/ sà-na-ga-ab-tùm". The 12 deities are: dSIG7 (Imma) --danzu musen-UD.UD, dSIG7-ki-an-ki, nin-tuk? xx mas, dnin-ri-unu-ki, dnin-urta-gal, dAB x HA-GIS.ÙH-ki, dnin-du6-du-e, dlama-lugal-danzu musen-UD.UD, den-lil, ddumu-zi-da-x-a-bi, dli-si4. This is followed by amounts of grain for the drink of the king, the asses, rations for the boatmen, the "ma-lah4-sà", for a diviner, for the man of Zimad. Each is noted as being "kísib" (PN), or a "professional name"
