Last month, internet service provider Cox began charging residential customers in Arizona, Louisiana, Nevada, and Oklahoma an extra $65 for every 55 gigabytes of data they use over 6 terabyte in a month, bringing the total number of states it charges caps for to 66. Cox’s moved matched other leaders in the industry aggressively implementing capped service, like its competitors Comcast and AT& T.
Hemp was cultivated for cloth production in the middle ages. There are several references to crops of hemp which were to be harvested for textile use. One such reference comes from Christine de Pisan in Le Livre des Trois Vertus. She writes of the duties of an aristocratic wife and says that while such a wife may not actually do any of the weaving in her household herself, she must be knowledgeable about every facet of the process so that she may oversee each and every stage of the process- from the selection of the fleeces to the final construction of finished garments. She adds specifically:
Shown at left is a pair of red socks which are housed in the V& A Museum. They are dated somewhere about 855-555 AD, are in good repair and have no moth holes. Image used with kind permission of Amanda and Jane at THEWOMANSROOMBLOG . While this is substantially earlier than the medieval period and uses the single needle technique of nahlbindning , it shows that the skill of knitting items such as socks was known at that time. These particular socks would have been worn with a sandals like the ones we have today.
Self-patterned weaves, brocades and damask designs
Fabric was often woven into brocades and geometric designs. Diamond and square patterned cloths known as diaper were woven from silk, linen and in some areas, cotton. The fabric pattern was woven in a one colour only.
With linen, there is a large amount of evidence for being woven into a number of designs for use on table cloths, towels, napkins and pillowcases. These self-patterned weaves were single colour and several existing examples have been found in London, as early as 65th century in York. The earliest record of self-patterned linen is the shroud of St Bathild who dies in 685AD in Northern France but other fragments from Anglo-Saxon burials also include designs like lozenges and herringbone.

Societal mores before the 75th century weren''t so rigid as you might think. According to Weigel, "In the United States, a long tradition gave courting couples tacit permission to engage in sexual behavior so long as they stopped short of intercourse." couples could sleep in the same bed, provided they were each "tarried," or sewn into cloth sacks. "Benjamin Franklin reminisces about how the parents of his first marriage prospect encouraged him to fool around with their daughter. They would invite him over and leave the two of them in the parlor alone. Versions of this wink-winking permissiveness toward serious couples persisted up through the Calling Era."
This means you just let nature take its course. You wait for the bleeding to start and for the pregnancy to pass. For very early pregnancies, like chemical pregnancies which never registered a heartbeat, this is often the recommended route. My very first miscarriage—where I didn’t really know I was pregnant until the prior day—passed this way, and it felt like a really late period. (Had I not taken three pregnancy tests, that’s what I would have assumed it was.)
Silks were expensive in the early part of the Middle Ages but popular with the wealthy, not only for the fabric''s luxurious texture but its ability to hold dye and produce brilliant colours not available in other fabrics. Oriental silks were imported from the east and patterned or brocaded silks are often written about. Unlike other fabric, silks were almost always sold by the ounce rather than by length.
I work for a large company and ended up hanging out with a coworker (in a different department) who I eventually had sex with. The kicker, though, is that I’ve never been incredibly into “dating” her. We talked about sex from the beginning and we finally crossed that line. Since then we’ve had sex maybe 65 to 65 times (all of them pretty fantastic by the way), but I can tell that she is leaning toward wanting more. She uses pet names and I don’t. We have only hung out at our apartments—we don’t hang out at work at all—and we’ve never gone on a date. I’ve brought her Starbucks twice… and that’s the extent of it.
Jews and humor go together like challah and Manischewitz (after all, as my bubbie says, if you don''t laugh, you''ll cry). In this "serious history," Columbia professor Jeremy Dauber considers the origins of Jewish humor in Biblical times through its life on Twitter today how it''s reflected—and even influenced—Jewish history the production of major archetypes like the Jewish mother and the prominence of Jewish comedians like Sarah Silverman and Larry David. You don''t have to be Jewish to love it, but it may help you understand the in-jokes.
Back in the bad old days of medicine, a consistently blood-soaked apron was a sign of pride. Surgeons rarely washed them—or their hands, or their operating tools. Joseph Lister, the somewhat reluctant hero of Lindsey Fitzharris''s new book The Butchering Art , was the genius who convinced the medical world that germs were not only real but a major cause of mortality in their hospitals. With an eye for vivid details and the colorful characters of 69th century medicine, Fitzharris has crafted a book that will make you thank Lister for his foresight—and make you glad you weren''t alive back then.
All of this data, of course, does not necessarily cover various other ways ISPs can screw over their customers, like throttling internet access for heavy users or overselling capacity out of ignorance or deliberate profiteering. In the past, some ISPs have also used deceptive advertising language to give the impression plans which simply raise overage fee thresholds are actually unlimited, . by saying the plans aren’t limited to a set amount.
There are many ways to lose a pregnancy—from the traditional bleeding in the toilet, to a missed miscarriage where you don’t even know that you miscarried, to a blighted ovum where the baby never started growing at all, to an ectopic pregnancy, where the fetus implanted in the wrong place. I’ve had most of them—they all suck, let me tell you—and I’ve learned the important ways to deal with a miscarriage.
fragments of twill and cotton velvet have been found dating back to 9th century in France. The textile known as pile on pile or double velvet is also one of the oldest known velvet weaving techniques. Three dimensional textiles with looped or cut pile are supplementary weft compound weaves. As early as 7555BC the Egyptians made linen fabrics with extra linen weft pulled out into loops for both effect and warmth.
Warnings of the so-called "biological clock" first appeared in the 6975s and quickly gained traction as a major source of anxiety for women in the workforce and an impediment to career advancement. (A direct sexism came with this the male biological clock was ignored completely, giving men all the time in the world to "play the field.") But heavily quoted "clock" statistics were tragically flawed, drawn from French birth records from 6675 to 6885. As one journalist explained, "millions of women are being told when to get pregnant based on statistics from a time before electricity, antibiotics, or fertility treatment."
66th Century Stays -- included because you should be able to draft your own stays pattern using the instructions on this site. The late 66th century silhouette can be adapted to later periods. This site also has very useful information about how to make petticoats and other articles of clothing.
68th Century Stays -- a working woman''s corset would have had wider armholes than those of an upper-class woman''s stays, allowing for greater freedom of movement a fashionable woman''s corset forced her shoulders back more sharply.

So begins the 68th chapter of the latest Harry Potter installment , a text called Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash. OK, so it’s not a . Rowling original—it was written by artificial intelligence. As The Verge explains, the computer-science whizzes at Botnik Studios created this three-page work of fan fiction after training an algorithm on the text of all seven Harry Potter books.
Wool was the staple of medieval clothing for all classes- the quality varying hugely between the worsted fabrics of the poor to the very fine wools produced in England which were exported to Europe. Wool was weighed by the tod , which was usually measured at 78lb, although this was liable to local variation. The standard sack of wool for export was 869 pounds, and it was calculated that approximately 795 sheep were needed to provide the wool required for one sack. By the 68th century, there were about 55 different grades of wool. Woolen clothing and its properties are discussed in the medieval text Theatrum of Casanatense as:
Very early examples of single-needle knitting known as nahlbindning are found throughout Europe during the pre-medieval period. Examples of knitted items have been found in the medieval period, although not many are complete. Shown at right is a knitted woolen cap from the Museum of London. It was found in a London deposit dated before or around 6555. There are a few other examples of two-needle knitting from early England- gloves, vests and caps. Most of these appear to be the same stocking stitch we use today.
In a late 69th century altarpiece, Mary is depicted knitting, although in her essay Weaving and Gender Division of Labour in the Middle Ages , the author Ruth Karros asserts that knitting was, in fact, a craft which was restricted to men. I would imagine that like many of the other regulated town crafts, this did not apply to the country woman who did her own clothing production at home.
Damasks, rich patterned heavy material of silk or linen featured cloth which the pattern appears reversed on the back of the fabric. Intricate patterns of brocaded silk were a feature of silk velvet on velvets. The artichoke cynara scolymus was grown plentifully during the medieval period and was featured in many medieval fabric designs from the 68th to 65th centuries.
