Las autoridades reportaron que la ceniza se eleva hasta los 4.800 metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar, y se dispersan a 15 kilómetros al sur, oeste y suroeste


El Volcán de Fuego, ubicado a 50 kilómetros al oeste de la capital de Guatemala, se mantiene este lunes activo con siete explosiones por hora, dos semanas después de la devastadora erupción que dejó más de un centenar de muertos. La intensidad de la actividad es de moderada a fuerte.

El Instituto Nacional de Sismología, Vulcanología, Meteorología e Hidrología (Insivumeh) reportó este lunes que el coloso lanza ceniza hasta los 4.800 metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar, que se dispersan a 15 kilómetros al sur, oeste y suroeste.

Las explosiones generan retumbos que son audibles a una distancia de 10 kilómetros, y se han observado avalanchas hacia las barrancas Seca, Ceniza y Las Lajas, de acuerdo a la información oficial.

Según el ente científico, se reporta caída de finas partículas de ceniza en las aldeas Panimanché, Morelia, Sangre de Cristo y Palo Verde.

Las lluvias que se pronosticas para la tarde y noche de este lunes en la región donde está el volcán, entre los departamentos de Escuintla, Sacatepéquez y Chimaltenango, aumentará la posibilidad de lahares, advirtió Insivumeh.

Esos tres departamentos, los más afectados por la violenta erupción del pasado 3 de junio, que deja 197 desaparecidos y 1,7 millones de afectados, siguen bajo alerta roja.

Las labores de búsqueda terminaron en El Rodeo y San Miguel Los Lotes (Escuintla), la zona de impacto de la erupción, por decisión de la Coordinadora Departamental para la Reducción de Desastres de Escuintla, que declaró el área "inhabitable y de alto riesgo".

Dos de los desaparecidos son los Bomberos Voluntarios Juan Bajxac y Antonio Castillo, de Alotenango (Sacatepéquez) y sus compañeros anunciaron que seguirán con la búsqueda para encontrar a los socorristas.

    • I'm having trouble locating the other post regarding discrepancies. I'm going to share this discrepancy here. Perhaps I didn't search thoroughly enough. Did you mean to say that there is no clear indication of how a celestial observer or scribe could be defined according to Francesca Rochberg as an astrologer? I'm curious if they did require assistance from mathematicians then. What would happen if a scribe was illiterate and not an astrologer, but a record needed to be made because no astrologer was available to record an urgent event? "The title “t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil,” although easily yet only literally translated as “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil,” is difficult to define. The common translation, “astrologer,” by focusing on only one aspect of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe’s activities, conveys an inadequate and one-sided picture. No one-word English translation of t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlil adequately defines the field of expertise of the En¯uma Anu Enlil scribe without implying an anachronistically sharp distinction between astrologer and astronomer, and an implied distinction between pseudoscientist and scientist." This observation was not limited to Mesopotamian scribal scholarship in general, but also extended to a similar concern for Babylonian culture. "Textual sources from which one can piece together the range of responsibilities and expertise of a scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil are fortunately not limited to those on which the title appears, as these are surprisingly rare. In the Neo-Assyrian period, the available texts include one letter mentioning the “reports of the t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils,”37 one Babylonian report in which the writer ˇSum¯aia is the “scribe of En¯uma Anu Enlil from the new team,”38 and one administrative document listing the employees of the court in which seven t.upˇsar En¯uma Anu Enlils head the list, two of whom are well known from the court correspondence and the astrological reports, that is, Iˇstar-ˇsuma-¯ereˇs and Balasˆı." How do modern scholars make adjustments if they have no way of knowing the mental state of the ancient scribes? They must grapple with the uncertainty of the formulas used or not used. It seems that a great deal of interpretation is based on conjecture, leading to disagreements among scholars. This uncertainty certainly impacts certain areas of scholarly interpretation. It seems that they took their records seriously, but can we truly rely on them if we consider that the scribe may not have been a scholar?
    • I can't believe it! You actually sent me a staggering six reference books and an impressive dozen articles. I'm not a fast reader, haha!  
    • Have you examined the writings of Francesca Rochberg? This person adds a unique perspective to the works of Hunger, Sachs, and Steele. It is truly enlightening to observe Ptolemy's fascination with that particular era in Tetr. 2.3. It's fascinating how they still refer to Piches and Johannes' works, especially with additional information and further footnotes. 
    • I think we can take Geo Jackson’s words as a template. ‘You don’t want to take sides,’ he says, and to show the challenge of keeping neutral, he uses the example of contesting politicians in Australia, one of whom wanted to draft people of Jackson’s age into the military and one of whom did not. Now that would test your resolve to stay neutral, he said, nonetheless you must do it. If he was as ignorant of politics as some seem to think is the gold standard, he would not have even known which politician’s views would be to his benefit and which one would not. Of course, I leaned into him on this point, informing him that: I’m sure he gave my words all the consideration they deserved before instantly turning his attention to other matters.
    • Then stop using AI Tools, since it's clear you have none, at least not where it counts. Now to please your kind of friends, I can see it.
