In Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time (1992),[8][9] the Denisons are shipwrecked near Dinotopia and, after making it ashore, are found by the people of the Hatchery. The Hatchery is a place where dinosaurs are born, tended by both dinosaurs and humans. The Denisons then set out to explore the island, hoping to find a means of returning to their old lives.

His son Will, on the other hand, has chosen to train as a messenger of the sky; a Skybax rider, who lives in symbiosis with his mount, the great Quetzalcoatlus (nicknamed Skybax), a species of pterosaur. Training alongside Will is a girl called Sylvia, with whom Will falls in love. Arthur, for his part, travels into the World Beneath, at the same time that Will and Sylvia are learning to fly with the Skybax. When he returns, he is fascinated by the ancient relics found there and is convinced that they may be key in enabling him to leave or explore the island. Will is at the time too young to marry Sylvia, but it is promised that they will. Arthur recognizes that his son has grown up, and they each accept the changes that are results of their new lives on the island.

The main protagonist of the story is Gideon Altaire, a flight school student living in the capital city of Poseidos off the Dinotopian mainland, in which all organic life (save for humans) has been replaced by mechanical counterparts. After discovering an injured Scaphognathus named Razzamult, Gideon discovers that the city is planning to launch an attack on the mainland and conquer all of Dinotopia and that they have stolen the ruby sunstone from the pterosaur home of Highnest. Gideon is presented as the first ever Skybax rider, although the species he rode wasn't a Quetzalcoatlus northropi.

The voyage of discovery that Arthur Denison and his son, Will, began in Dinotopia continues in The World Beneath. Professor Denison and Will have been living on Dinotopia for several years, learning the marvels of this lost island continent where dinosaurs and humans have coexisted peacefully for centuries, cut off from the rest of the world.

I would argue that the problem of Africa are in large part due to the European destroying the existing african nation to replace them with a system in which a few white people extract everything from the local population in a very inneficient manner, system that was sometimes rejected after the independance of the country, but often forced on the population by the next government.

EDIT: There probably were benefits to Spain from colonialism, such as all those secondary sons who left Spain and became rich in American by trade or conquest, came back and invested in their homeland.

Besides, Greenland has been a slow but steady process of gaining independence from Denmark. At this point, the government of Copenhagen only rules Greenland over matters of foreign affairs, defence and monetary policy (in the form of substantial subsidies that are planned to diminish over time). A notable peculiarities of this arangement is that even though Denmark proper is part of the EU, Greenland is not. Greenlandic has also been the sole official language since 2009 (although Danish and English have some legal recognition).

As Greenland develops its own economy and subsidies from Denmark eventually cease, it is expected that Greenland will achieve full sovereignty sometimes in the future, and the debates are mostly over how fast or slowly it should happen, rather than whether it should happen.

What if instead of buying it for cash, the plan was to swap it for other land. The US bought the Virgin Islands from Denmark just before WW1. I have to think that during the dreary Danish winter, some Danes wonder whether selling them and keeping Greenland was such a bright idea. Perhaps the Danes would take them back in return for Greenland?

Taking land from natives made America. Yup.Doing so was not particularly exceptional, however, and if you want to make the case that every good and/or unique thing about America is traceable to the geography, you have to actually make it.

I agree with the thesis, but what are they trying to accomplish? Yelling at white people about how terrible we are feels good, but it only works on like 30% of us and we already feel terrible all the time. (Possibly overextrapolating from myself to all white liberals on that last bit. Eh whatever.)

If late July was the last peak prior to the next recession it seems pretty likely to start within 6 months. This is where I am leaning now, the 30 year has fallen and is setting all time lows, and there is no real reason to use the 10-2 specifically instead of any number of other inversions like the 5 year/3 month one that occurred in March. Taking a mid point (for reasons) then we are 4 months past inversion, and the S&P peak of 3 weeks ago would plus the average time to recession from the Fed raising rates of 7 months would put us starting a recession within the next 6 months. 350c69d7ab
