In our recent July 21, 2005 article on separation agreements and BC child custody and BC child guardianship and BC child access we opined that the test to vary a BC separation agreement's custody terms was now higher than the test to vary a custody order under the Gordon v.
A.G. but a recent BC Court of Appeal decision reflects a more traditional approach to custody arrangements made in separation agreements and applies a much lower test to vary.
(2000), 190 D.L.R. (4th) 108, 2000 BCCA 455, Finch J.A. (as he then was) for the majority (Newbury J.A. concurring in separate reasons, but not disagreeing with the majority on this point), considered the legal force of a separation agreement in relation to subsequent orders of the court.

  Roman to Julian Conversion: AUC 564 = 190 BC
Roman to Julian Conversion: AUC 564 = 190 BC An exact astronomical synchronism is given by Livy 37.4.4 which describes a total solar eclipse at Rome during the games of Apollo, on a.d.
Brind'Amour, Le calendrier romain 145-147, presents an analysis of the campaign that dates this event to around November or December of 190, with Magnesia being fought in January.
She points out that if A.U.C 564 = 190 was not intercalary, the Regifugium fell on 29 (recte 20) October 190, so the march would have resumed on 27 (recte 18) November 190, i.e.

Hipparchus (Hipparhcos, Greek Ἳππαρχος) (circa 190 BC - circa 120 BC) was a Greek astronomer, geographer, and mathematician.
After that in 135 BC, enthusiastic about a nova star in the constellation of Scorpius, he measured with an equatorial armillary sphere ecliptical coordinates of about 850 (falsely quoted elsewhere as 1600 or 1080) and in 129 BC he made first big star catalogue.
Hipparchus had in 134 BC ranked stars in six magnitude classes according to their brightness: he assigned the value of 1 to the 20 brightest stars, to weaker ones a value of 2, and so forth to the stars with a class of 6, which can be barely seen with the naked eyes.

Hannibal (general) (247-183 bc), Carthaginian general, son of Hamilcar Barca, whose march on Rome from Spain across the Alps in 218-217 bc remains one of the greatest feats in military history.

With Antiochus he fought against the Romans, but when the Syrian monarch was defeated at Magnesia (Manisa) in 190 bc and signed a treaty with Rome pledging to surrender Hannibal, the latter escaped to Prusias II, king of Bithynia (reigned 192-148 bc), in northern Asia Minor.

He was the first astronomer who compiled a catalog of 850 stars; this work was perhaps triggered by the observation of a "New Star" (Nova) in the constellation Scorpius in 134 BC (according to Roman historian Pliny).
He included two "nebulous objects" in his catalog, the Praesepe star cluster (M44, NGC 2632) and the Double Star Cluster in Perseus, h+chi Persei (NGC 869+884).
To remarkable acuracy, he obtained measurements of the value of precession, the length of the year, and (from eclipse observations) the distance of the Moon.

 Winged Victory of Samothrace | Musée du Louvre
If it is associated with a major Rhodian naval victory, the work can be dated to the second century BC-it would have been erected in honor of the battle of Myonnisos, or perhaps the Rhodian victory at Side in 190 BC against the fleet of Antiochus III of Syria.
This is achieved by the oblique angles of the wings and the placement of the left leg, and emphasized by the clothing blowing between the goddess's legs.
The nude female body is revealed by the transparency of the wet drapery, much in the manner of classical works from the fifth century BC, while the cord worn just beneath the breasts recalls a clothing style that was popular beginning in the fourth century.
