It reads a set of subscription lists, in a standard format, and monitors all the feeds in all the lists. When one updates, it adds an item to the output river, which is a JSON file, the perfect format for news applications.#

Abstract This week we will be conducting a "brownout" of all misconfigured GitHub Pages sites. If your GitHub Pages site's DNS is pointed at an out-of-date IP address, we will intermittently serve a warning page in place of your site's content. We will update our status site before we do so, and normal functionality will resume at the conclusion of the brownout. If you use a custom domain with GitHub Pages, please verify that your domain's DNS settings are properly configured to point to the most up-to-date GitHub IP addresses. This will ensure that your site remains available this week and continues to remain available after December 1st, 2014. For information on how to tell if your site is affected and what to do to fix it, see the original GitHub Pages Legacy IP Deprecation announcement or the setting up a custom domain with GitHub Pages documentation. Of course, if you have any questions, we're here to help.

Indeed, these connections, and the comparative histories of these two ancient empires, have recently been the objects of renewed interest in the Western academy. Perhaps less well known is the parallel interest growing in China and the cooperative ventures that have begun to emerge in the writing of this new comparative history—from an Eastern perspective—of China and Rome.

Abstract How should historians speak truth to power - and why does it matter? Why is five hundred years better than five months or five years as a planning horizon? And why is history - especially long-term history - so essential to understanding the multiple pasts which gave rise to our conflicted present? The History Manifesto is a call to arms to historians and everyone interested in the role of history in contemporary society. Leading historians David Armitage and Jo Guldi identify a recent shift back to longer-term narratives, following many decades of increasing specialization, which they argue is vital for the future of historical scholarship and how it is communicated. This provocative and thoughtful book makes an important intervention in the debate about the role of history and the humanities in a digital age. It will provoke discussion among policymakers, activists and entrepreneurs as well as ordinary listeners, viewers, readers, students and teachers. - See more at: http://historymanifesto.cambridge.org/#sthash.sCiwE4lz.dpuf

Abstract The Map Academy is an open source project, which serves as a resource for people creating maps on the web. Being open source means that the content that is here, will be free for everyone to access and build upon. Although is an initiative of CartoDB, it is not only a guide to this specific software. While we do think that CartoDB is a great tool to start learning online mapping, it is only one part of a growing network of mapping tools. It is our hope that as the program expands, you will find more and more content that is not related directly with CartoDB, and that will allow you to build your skills as a mapper. This means that at the Map Academy we will start to teach you skills you can use in other technologies such as ESRI, Google Maps, or Mapbox. The Map Academy is designed for self-learners, but can also be used in traditional teaching environments. Since it’s open source, re-publication, adaptations into product manuals, and any other creative usage of the Map Academy is permitted. When possible, we appreciate attribution to the Map Academy.

Abstract Metallurgical activities have been undertaken in northern South America (NSA) for millennia. However, it is still unknown how far atmospheric emissions from these activities have been transported. Since the timing of metallurgical activities is currently estimated from scarce archaeological discoveries, the availability of reliable and continuous records to refine the timing of past metal deposition in South America is essential, as it provides an alternative to discontinuous archives, as well as evidence for global trace metal transport. We show in a peat record from Tierra del Fuego that anthropogenic metals likely have been emitted into the atmosphere and transported from NSA to southern South America (SSA) over the last 4200 yrs. These findings are supported by modern time back-trajectories from NSA to SSA. We further show that apparent anthropogenic Cu and Sb emissions predate any archaeological evidence for metallurgical activities. Lead and Sn were also emitted into the atmosphere as by-products of Inca and Spanish metallurgy, whereas local coal-gold rushes and the industrial revolution contributed to local contamination. We suggest that the onset of pre-Hispanic metallurgical activities is earlier than previously reported from archaeological records and that atmospheric emissions of metals were transported from NSA to SSA.

Abstract The Virtual International Authority File (OCLC Online Computer Library Center 2013) http://viaf.org is built from dozens of authority files with tens of millions of names in more than 150 million authority and bibliographic records expressed in multiple languages, scripts and formats. One of the main tasks in VIAF is to bring together personal names which may have various dates associated with them, such as birth, death or when they were active. These dates can be quite complicated with ranges, approximations, BCE dates, different scripts, and even different calendars. Analysis of the nearly 400,000 unique date strings in VIAF led us to a parsing technique that relies on only a few basic patterns for them. Our goal is to correctly interpret at least 99% of all the dates we find in each of VIAF’s authority files and to use the dates to facilitate matches between authority records., Python source code for the process described here is available at https://github.com/OCLC-Developer-Network/viaf-dates.

Abstract The University of Victoria Libraries started archiving websites in 2013, and it quickly became apparent that many scholarly websites being produced by faculty, especially in the digital humanities, were going to prove very challenging to effectively capture and play back. This article will provide an overview of web archiving and explore the considerable legal and technical challenges of implementing a web archiving initiative at a research library, using the University of Victoria’s implementation of Archive-it, a web archiving service from the Internet Archive, as a case study, with a special focus on capturing complex, interactive websites that scholars are creating to disseminate their research in new ways.

Kınık Höyük Archaeological Project

Abstract The site of Kınık Höyük lies in the southern fringes of ancient Cappadocia, in the modern province of Niğde. In ancient times Southern Cappadocia represented the main intersection of the roads to the Taurus passes, which connected the Central Anatolian plateau to the Mediterranean Sea and the Northern Levant. Given this strategic position, the region was continuously occupied and traversed since Prehistory, becoming especially crucial to the history of Hittite, Neo-Hittite, Persian, Hellenistic, Roman and Medieval periods. During the Middle Iron Age (9th-8th BCE), believed to be the height of the activity at Kınık Höyük, the settlement was located at the heart of the kingdom of Tuwana, a poorly understood Neo-Hittite polity documented so far by monumental inscriptions in Southern Cappadocia and some references in contemporary Assyrian records. The particular position of Kınık also makes it a potentially attractive stop on modern tourist itineraries. In fact, just to the north are found the most traditional destinations of Cappadocia; e.g. Göreme, Avanos, Üçhisar and the Underground Cities. Despite such a high potential from both a historical and cultural point of view, Southern Cappadocia was still an underexplored region until the 2011, when a joint American, Italian and Turkish excavation project started at Kınık Höyük. In the three years since, the potential of the site has been realized and the team's initial findings have proven very promising for better understanding this crucial region.

Abstract An Archival Resource Key (ARK) is a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that is a multi-purpose identifier for information objects of any type. An ARK contains the label ark: after the URL's hostname, which sets the expectation that, when submitted to a web browser, the URL terminated by '?' returns a brief metadata record, and the URL terminated by '??' returns metadata that includes a commitment statement from the current service provider. The ARK and its inflections ('?' and '??') gain access to three facets of a provider's ability to provide persistence.
