Obsidian 'spirit mirror' used by Elizabeth I's adviser has Aztec origins

  Obsidian 'spirit mirror' used by Elizabeth I's adviser has Aztec origins An obsidian "spirit mirror" used by a confidant of Queen Elizabeth I actually came from the Aztec culture, according to new research. An analysis of the obsidian mirror, owned by John Dee in the 1500s, revealed its Mexican origins.The obsidian mirror with the Elizabeth I connection belonged to John Dee, an adviser of hers from when she became queen in 1558 and through the 1570s. Dee served as the queen's astrologer and also consulted with her on science. This included Dee acting "as an advocate of voyages of discovery, establishing colonies and improving navigation," said Stuart Campbell, study author and professor at the University of Manchester.

The Lions are now the league’s one remaining winless team after Jacksonville beat Miami and Detroit lost to Cincinnati on Sunday.

There’s an argument to be made that they shouldn’t be, given the unique, last-second losses the team suffered to the Ravens and the Vikings. But the record is the record and Detroit heads into a Week Seven matchup with the Rams 0-6.

So first-year head coach Dan Campbell is going to change some things in the coming days — from the structure of practice to personnel.

“There are a couple things. I would say all of the above,” Campbell said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. “I don’t want to get too far into where that’ll go, as far as the roster, but we’re looking at that. I think we’re going to shake things up here a little bit.”

'RHOBH' Season 11 Reunion Trailer Teases Erika Jayne vs Andy Cohen

  'RHOBH' Season 11 Reunion Trailer Teases Erika Jayne vs Andy Cohen Shots fired! The new trailer for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion is full of moments that will have you reaching for the popcorn, including a tense showdown between Erika Jayne and Andy Cohen. The teaser, which Erika, 50, shared via Instagram on Wednesday, October 6, begins with her meeting up with RHOBH costar Lisa Rinna two weeks before the reunion. Despite her and her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s legal troubles, the Pretty Mess author tells Lisa, 58, that she will take part in the show. “I’m not a f–king quitter,” she said. However, she admits to her friend that it’s not going to be easy to sit down with her other RHOBH castmates — Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais, Sutton Stracke and Crystal Kung Minkoff — after everything that’s happened this season. View this post on Instagram A post shared by ERIKA JAYNE (@theprettymess) “There’s going to be some shots taken and some shots fired,” the Broadway performer explained. “And guess what? There’s going to be some winners and losers,” to which Lisa replied, “Well, that’s life, baby.” Life hasn’t been easy for Erika as of late. In November 2020, she filed for divorce from her 82-year-old husband, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The pair were named in a class action lawsuit in December 2020 that alleged that Tom and Erika embezzled settlement money intended for the families of plane crash victims.

Campbell noted that he’s willing to look at everything.

“I’ve got about a million ideas just floating around up here right now as to what I want to do,” Campbell said.

Some of them seem to be about the offense’s tempo. Campbell mentioned wanting to go faster on offense after the game on Sunday as a way to production, but that didn’t work out during the loss to Cincinnati.

“As it pertains to practice, there are a couple of things that I have in my head as to which way I want to go with it,” Campbell said. “I do want to change it up and see if I can get us into more of a rhythm or tempo early, just to get us going offensively and defensively. I said this yesterday, but this is what we wanted to — we wanted to come in this game and really come out of the gates, and we did not do that. We went the opposite way. I think there are some things in practice we have to do to at least see if we can supercharge ourselves somewhat.”

The Lions have lost all their games, but until Sunday, they had been competitive while doing it. With a matchup against the Rams looming, Campbell will have to get his club to perform at its best to have a chance to beat L.A.

Dan Campbell's caffeine-filled coffee order sounds horrible .
Dan Campbell, the Detroit Lions head coach, can't stop giving us amazing quotes. I think his daily coffee order qualifies. The man who promised Lions players will "bite a kneecap" off opponents and who said he wasn't carrying their toilet paper around (seriously, he said that) revealed what he gets every morning: he gets two Venti-sized Pike Place Roasts from Starbucks AND two shots of espresso in each of them. That seems like A LOT of caffeine. I decided to head over to Starbucks’ site to see what he was ingesting. One Venti of Pike Place with the two shots is 410 mg of caffeine. Multiply that by two and you get 820 mg.
