Furthermore, I claim that the essence of achieving mature historical thought rests precisely on our ability to navigate the jagged landscape of history, to traverse the terrain that lies between the poles of familiarity with and distance from the past.
Historical thinking requires us to reconcile two contradictory positions: first, that our established modes of thinking are an inheritance that cannot be sloughed off; second, that if we make no attempt to slough them off, we are doomed to a mind-numbing presentism that reads the present onto the past.
Mature historical knowing teaches us to do the opposite: to go beyond our own image, to go beyond our brief life, and to go beyond the fleeting moment in human history into which we've been born.

Most scholars, however, maintain that Herod also built a theatre, an amphitheatre, and a hippodrome in or near Jerusalem, that he held quadrennial games at Jerusalem, and that once every four years Jerusalem was filled with gentile athletes, actors, gladiators, and spectators, celebrating the glory of Rome, its emperor, and its gods.
Of the scholars just listed, Schalit drew the widest conclusions from the supposed establishment of games at Jerusalem, but even he did not mention the problem of idolatry.
Lists in Josephus both praise and blame Herod for his gentile buildings, but gymnasia in his own territory are never mentioned.

 Interior Dept. proposal to list polar bear as threatened due to loss of sea ice (posting from Climate Science Watch)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
The U.S. Department of the Interior announced on December 27 that it is proposing formally to list the polar bear as “threatened” with extinction, because rising Arctic temperature is causing the loss of sea ice, on which polar bears depend for hunting.
Once listed, federal agencies will be obligated to ensure that any action they authorize, fund, or carry out will not jeopardize the Polar Bear’s continued existence or adversely modify its critical habitat, and the USFandWS will be required to prepare a recovery plan for the Polar Bear, specifying measures necessary for its protection.
That, along with the proposal on polar bears, he said, “plays into a reality that, in my opinion, they’re going to be rethinking their position” on global warming.
