It describes cloud computing as "a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources e. This means that cloud customers can sign up for, pay for and start using cloud resources very quickly on their own without help from a sales agent.
Atlantis With the release of the Disney movie, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, one may wonder if there really was a lost civilization of Atlantis. Plato tells the story of an ancient island civilization that vanished as the result of a natural disaster.
Plato writes about Atlantis in Timaeus and Critias. Timaeus 24a-b indicates that there were Egyptian records of this story. It was not until Schliemann dug up Troy that historical value was placed in ancient legends.
The background of the Odyssey has been illuminated by archaeological finds in Ithaca. So it seems that there is a good possibility that the story of Atlantis has some bases of truth. How can this be?
"After Rain" by William Trevor Trevor was born (in ) and brought up in rural Ireland but has lived in Devon, England since the s. Although he has written novels, he is best known for his short stories and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest contemporary . UNION CARBIDE: DISASTER AT BHOPAL by Jackson B. Browning Retired Vice President, Health, Safety, India. Later, as the deadly cloud slowly drifted in the cool night air through streets in surrounding sections, sleeping residents awoke, coughing, choking, and rubbing painfully just over 50 percent of which was owned by Union Carbide. According to Federal Aviation Administration radar tracking data, shortly after departure, the flight began to encounter the forecast weather conditions, and the flightpath and altitude began to change as the pilot repeatedly deviated to avoid clouds.
It is said to be in the Atlantic Ocean past the pillars of Hercules. The Atlantians invaded between and years before Plato. This seems like an exaggeration or a different way of counting. It is more likely to years. This would place the story around BC.
In the Greek there is only a one letter difference. Luce has written a very interesting book entitled Lost Atlantis: New Light on an Old Legend. The great civilization of Atlantis was the great Minoan civilization. It is also the same as Biblical Caphtor. Caphtor is called an island in Jeremiah The Philistines are said to come from Caphtor in Amos 9: Philistines are called Cretans in Zephaniah 2: Keftiu is said to be in the midst of the Great Green Sea.
It seems that Keftiu was considered to be the pillar at the ends of the earth that held up the sky. The worship of sacred pillars was prevalent in Minoan Crete.
Plato would have equated this with Atlas from which we get Atlantis. Solon probably misunderstood the Egyptian record of the Minoans p. Was there a natural catastrophe that destroyed Atlantis? There was a huge volcanic eruption on the island of Thera, modern day Santorini.
The dating of this varies from the early 17th century to the early 16th century BC. The latest carbon 14 dating indicates about BC.
This eruption sank half the island of Thera below the sea. The eruption would also cause a tsunami, which would have destroyed the coastal cities of Crete. The archaeological evidence seems to confirm this. Enormous quantities of ash were ejected forming a huge pillar like cloud. It is very possible that the effects of the volcano were part of the plagues of Egypt.
The tidal wave from the eruption drowning the Egyptians, and the pillar of cloud by day and a fiery cloud by night that led the Israelites was the ash cloud from the fiery volcano. In the first rhetorical question God declares that the Israelites are just like the Ethiopians who are from a distant land.
In the second rhetorical question Israel is equated with her close foes the Philistines and Arameans. The eruption of the volcano on Thera forced the Philistines to flee from Crete and the Aegean islands, probably to Asia Minor. Eventually the Philistines settled on the coast of Israel after a great sea battle with Egypt about BC.
