For other people named Himilco, see Himilco (disambiguation).
Himilco (Phoenician Chimilkât),[1] a Carthaginian navigator and explorer, lived during the height of Carthaginian power, the 5th century BC.
Himilco is the first known explorer from the Mediterranean Sea to reach the northwestern shores of Europe. His lost account of his adventures is quoted by Roman writers. The oldest reference to Himilco’s voyage is a brief mention in Natural History (2.169a) by the Roman scholar Pliny the Elder.[2] Himilco was quoted three times by Rufus Festus Avienus, who wrote Ora Maritima, a poetical account of the geography in the 4th century AD.[3]
We know next to nothing of Himilco himself. Himilco sailed north along the Atlantic coast of present-day Spain, Portugal, England[4] and France. He reached northwestern France, as well as the territory of the Oestrimini tribe living in Portugal probably to trade for tin to be used for making bronze and for other precious metals. Records of the voyages of the Carthaginian Himilco take note of the islands of Albion and Ierne. Avienus asserts that the outward journey to the Oestriminis took the Carthaginians four months.[1] Himilco was not (according to Avienus) the first to sail the northern Atlantic Ocean; according to Avienus, Himilco followed the trade route used by the Tartessians of southern Iberia.[citation needed]
Himilco described his journeys as quite harrowing, repeatedly reporting sea monsters and seaweed,[5] likely in order to deter Greek rivals from competing on their new trade routes. Carthaginian accounts of monsters became one source of the myths discouraging sailing in the Atlantic.[6]

Ghana Internet Exchange

Ghana Internet eXchange

Full name
Ghana Internet eXchange




Official website

The Ghana Internet eXchange (GIX) is an Internet exchange point which serves Internet traffic in Ghana. GIX allows local Internet service providers and network operators to easily exchange traffic within Ghana, while improving connectivity and services for their customers. GIX was officially launched on October 18, 2005[1] at the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT.
The GIX home page states: “The GIX is run and operated by the Ghana Internet eXchange Association (GIXA), an independent non-profit corporation established by the Ghana Internet Service Providers Association (GISPA) and other stakeholders interested in joining and growing the GIX. While the GIX is a facility (router and switch) housed at the Ghana India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence, the GIXA is the community of operators (ISPs and Network Operators) who are connected and owners. GISPA is a professional, non-profit trade association representing the interest of ISPs and those interested in the provision of Internet service. The structure of the GIXA (GIX) is such that non-members of GISPA can also connect to the exchange. Hence it is open to all carriers (operators) who may want to exchange traffic locally.
“GISPA has been the lead organisation facilitating the establishment of the GIXA and the GIX in collaboration with other institutions who have contributed significantly such as Ministry of Communication, National Communication Authority, Ghana India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence, Geekcorps, Packet Clearing House , African Internet Service Providers Association, Ghana Network Information Centre, NTIC of the French Government through the French Embassy in Ghana French Embassy in Ghana and its members who have donated resources, time and money in various forms.”

Between Hitler and Stalin: Ukraine in World War II is a 2003 film produced and directed by Slavko Nowytski and narrated by Jack Palance. The one-hour documentary, part black-and-white and part color, is a project of Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre – an attempt to tell the story of the Second World War from a Ukrainian perspective.
In a chonological manner, Nowytski’s film unfolds during the years of Soviet-Nazi collaboration recounting the losses and suffering of the Ukrainian people; the documentary shifts to the destruction wrought by Joseph Stalin’s scorched earth policy as the Soviet Union military retreated, and shows the ruins left behind by the German and then the Soviet offensives.[1]
Between Hitler and Stalin describes the activity of the underground resistance movements, and specifically the long and large-scale struggle of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) on two fronts – against both totalitarian powers – for Ukraine’s independence. As Oksana Zakydalsky writes for The Ukrainian Weekly: “although [World War II is] often called the Russo-German war or described as Russia at war, only parts of Russia were occupied, while all Ukrainian territories were invaded and laid waste by both the Nazi and Soviet war machines…The film documents Ukraine’s contribution to the war against totalitarianism and the price Ukraine paid for its independence.”[1]
For historical and political commentary, the film relies on Norman Davies, a historian from University of London; Robert Conquest, a Soviet scholar at Hoover Institute; John Armstrong, an insurgency expert, and Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former US National Security Adviser.

The Ford D2C platform (for “D-class 2-door coupe” and primarily known as S197) is one of Ford’s rear-wheel drive automobile platforms. The sole vehicle to utilize this platform was the 2005-2014 fifth-generation Ford Mustang and its Shelby GT500 derivatives.
The platform basics are a MacPherson strut suspension in front and 3-link solid axle in the rear with a Panhard rod. Unlike previous Special Vehicle Team (SVT) Mustang variations, the Shelby GT500 does not include independent rear suspension, but instead has a solid rear axle.
Considered a new platform by Ford Motor Company, D2C is loosely based on the Ford DEW platform which served as the basis for the Lincoln LS, Ford Thunderbird, and Jaguar S-Type. The 2005 S197 Mustang was originally designed to use a “Lite” version of the DEW98 platform, but while that plan was eventually scrapped as too expensive, most D2C platform development completed prior to that decision was retained. This led to the carryover of several DEW98 chassis components. These components include the floor pans, portions of the transmission tunnel, the front frame rails, and basic fuel tank design.
Differences between D2C and DEW98 are most noticeable in the suspension: The DEW98-based Lincoln LS uses a 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension. The D2C platform’s MacPherson strut front suspension and solid axle rear suspension are less expensive to produce than DEW’s more complicated setup. D2C also shares components with other Ford platforms. These include Ford’s global C1 platform, with which D2C shares front strut and rear trailing arm components.
Ford’s The Way Forward plan called for Mustang derivative models (such as a 4-door) to be launched by 2008, but that never occurred.
