For much of the 19th century it was not uncommon for Supreme Court seats to be unoccupied for months at a time – or, in a few cases, years.

Butch lesbian Amy Dyess, who wrote a viral post about TERF being hate speech in 2018, tells PinkNews about her time in the 'gender-critical feminist cult'.
I watched The Social Dilemma last night. If anyone is curious why STS scholars could be so upset with a documentary that at its core espouses an agreeable and important critique of social media, here's a thread. 1/11— Lisa Messeri (@lmesseri) September 18, 2020
Nice post with links to lots of resources
Suitable for complete beginners, this will support the learning you do in class or elsewhere. There are different topics ranging from greetings to discussing leisure interests. You can choose video subtitles or speech bubbles in Welsh or English to support your learning. A tutor guide will help you though the language clips, giving you an opportunity to practise. Learn Welsh wherever you go with MP3 audio and paper printouts. In time this will be a comprehensive course allowing you to progress in your learning.
Croeso/Welcome to the Welsh course on Duolingo. This Duolingo course is designed to cover the CEFR levels A1 and A2 as taught on the LearnWelsh/DysguCymraeg Mynediad and Sylfaen level courses for adults in Wales. See https://www.learnwelsh.cymru
Recent fieldwork and analysis have revealed evidence for 20 or more massive, prehistoric shafts, measuring more than 10 metres in diameter and 5 metres deep. These shafts form a circle more than 2 kilometres in diameter and enclose an area greater than 3 square kilometres around the Durrington Walls henge, one of Britain’s largest henge monuments, and the famous, smaller prehistoric circle at Woodhenge.
The project and its results are presented at scientific conferences, in peer-reviewed and popular articles, and at public presentations. The following publications and media reports have appeared so far:

University of Adelaide research has for the first time statistically proven that the earliest standing stone monuments of Britain, the great circles, were constructed specifically in line with the movements of the Sun and Moon, 5000 years ago.
“These people chose to erect these great stones very precisely within the landscape and in relation to the astronomy they knew. They invested a tremendous amount of effort and work to do so. It tells us about their strong connection with their environment, and how important it must have been to them, for their culture and for their culture’s survival.” ❧

I led the team of researchers that discovered that Stonehenge was most likely to have been originally built in Pembrokeshire, Wales, before it was taken apart and transported some 180 miles to Wiltshire, England. It may sound like an impossible task without modern technology, but it wouldn't have been the first time prehistoric Europeans managed to move a monument.
A host of previously unknown archaeological monuments have been discovered around Stonehenge as part of an unprecedented digital mapping project that will transform our knowledge of this iconic landscape – including remarkable new findings on the world's largest 'super henge', Durrington Walls.
A trio of researchers from the University of Leicester and the University of Southampton has found evidence that suggests the Avebury monument might have started out as a single-dwelling home. In their paper published in Cambridge University's journal, Antiquity, Mark Gillings, Joshua Pollard and Kristian Strutt discuss their study of the Neolithic monument and what they found.
Archaeologists said Monday that they have discovered a major prehistoric monument under the earth near Stonehenge that could shed new light on the origins of the mystical stone circle in southwestern England.

Why in God’s name are they using the word “mystical” in a science article about this? It’s use only serves to muddy the water and encourage fanciful speculation and further myths.
