This name is cognate with the Greek Zeus, Latin Jupiter, and Norse Tyr. While Tiwaz (and the related Palaic god Tiyaz) retained a promenant role in the pantheon, the Hittite cognate deity, iwatde was largely eclipsed by the Sun goddess of Arinna, becoming a god of the day, especially the day of death.In Luwian cuneiform of the Bronze Age, his name appears as Tiwad-. It can also be written with the Sumerogram dUTU ("God-Sun"). In Hieroglyphic Luwian of the Iron Age, the name can be written as Tiwad- of with the ideogram (DEUS) SOL ("God-Sun")Tiwaz rarely appears in personal names. The oldest example derives from 19th century BC Kltepe, a person called "Tiwatia". The hieroglyphic Luwian name Azatiwadade ("Beloved of Tiwaz") is the root of the Pamphylian town of Aspendos. The local name of the town, according to the legends on its coins was Estwedi- (). Unlike other Luwian gods' names, Tiwaz is not attested in southern Anatolian personal names of the Hellenistic period. A Lyican women's name, Tewidarma (; "Sun-Moon") and a Lydian patronym, Tiwdalis, are derived from Tiwaz.The name also appears in UR.SAGTiwataa, the Hittite name for a mountain located somewhere in southwestern Anatolia.------Motion pictures of iron ageBennett was working as a film actress by 1913, and was cast in numerous one-reel shorts by small east coast film companies. She appeared in minor motion pictures like the western film A Ticket to Red Horse Gulch (Mutual 1914). She starred in several full-length films by the Triangle Film Corporation, including The Lonely Woman (1918). She also appeared in the east coast United States Motion Picture Corporation's film Flesh and Spirit (1922).She made the move to Hollywood before Samuel Goldwyn selected her from among seventy-three actresses for the leading role in Stella Dallas (1925). While she was filming the movie, her son, 16-year-old William Howard Macy, died. Macy had posed as Bennett's brother for some time, owing to her fear that her employers might find out her true age. She was actually thirty-four rather than twenty-four, which she had claimed to be. Because of the loss of her son, Bennett became close to her co-stars Lois Moran and Douglas Fairbanks Jr., who were also 16 at the time.After playing the mother role in Stella Dallas, Bennett was typecast for the remainder of her film career. She later appeared in Mother Machree (1928), The Battle of the Sexes (1928), The Iron Mask (1929), Courage (1930), Recaptured Love (1930) and The Big Shot (1931).------Demographics of iron ageAccording to Benin's 2013 census, the total population of the department was 745,328, with 348,574 males and 396,754 females.

Owen fought with his father in Kansas and participated in John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859, escaping capture, and then later served as an officer in the Union Army in the American Civil War.Owen Brown was the last surviving male member of the raiding party (his half-sister, Annie Brown Adams, who outlived him, was also among the raiding party); he died of pneumonia January 8, 1889 in Pasadena, California at the age of 64. Reportedly 2,000 mourners, equaling the entire population of Pasadena, marched in the funeral procession up to Little Roundtop Hill in West Altadena in the Meadows 34133N 118937W / 34.21750N 118.16028W / 34.21750; -118.16028 (34.217525, -118.160381). Ten years later, a marker was placed at the grave site. It read: "Owen Brown, Son of John Brown, the Liberator, died Jan. 9, 1889." Two iron ornaments, a heavy hook on the left, and a 6" diameter ring on the right, were attached to eyelets in the marker and could be moved - symbolizing freedom from the shackles of slavery and rapture from mortal bounds. The marker mysteriously disappeared from the grave site in 2002, along with the concrete base and surrounding rail fencing, after the property on which it was located was sold. No legal action was taken. In 2012, the missing gravestone was found a few hundred feet from the gravesite.------Camunni of iron ageThe Camuni or Camunni were an ancient population located in Val Camonica during the Iron Age (1st millennium BC); the Latin name Camunni was attributed to them by the authors of the 1st century. They are also called ancient Camuni, to distinguish them from the current inhabitants of the valley (the Camuni or Camunians). The Camunni were among the greatest producers of rock art in Europe; their name is linked to the famous rock engravings of Valcamonica.A people of obscure origin, they lived in a region, the Val Camonica, that had already been the site of a cultural tradition dating back to the early Neolithic. The Camunni are mentioned by classical historiographical sources from the 1st century BC, corresponding to the Iron Age in Val Camonica (from the 12th century BC until about Romanization). In ancient Greek, Strabo referred to them as (Kamounoi), while Cassius Dio called them (Kamounnioi).Conquered by Rome at the beginning of the 1st century AD, the Camunni were gradually incorporated into the political and social structures of the Roman Empire as a self-governing polity called the Res Publica Camunnorum. They were granted Roman citizenship from the second half of the 1st century, with a rapid process of Latinization.------Biography of iron ageOne of nine children, Thomas Noa was born in Iron Mountain, Michigan, to John and Magdalene (ne Walczak) Noa. He attended St. Francis Seminary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from 1907 to 1911, and continued his studies at the College of the Propaganda in Rome, where he earned a Doctor of Sacred Theology degree in 1917. While in Rome, he was ordained to the priesthood on December 23, 1916. Following his return to Michigan, he served as a professor (191727) and rector (192746) at St. Joseph Seminary in Grand Rapids. He was named a Domestic Prelate by Pope Pius XI in 1935.On February 22, 1946, Noa was appointed Coadjutor Bishop of Sioux City, Iowa, and Titular Bishop of Salona by Pope Pius XII. He received his episcopal consecration on the following March 19 from Cardinal Edward Mooney, with Bishops Charles Daniel White and Joseph H. Albers serving as co-consecrators. Following the death of Bishop Francis Joseph Magner, Noa was named the eighth Bishop of Marquette on August 25, 1947. He attended all four sessions of the Second Vatican Council between 1962 and 1965.After twenty-one years as Bishop of Marquette, he retired on January 5, 1968; he was appointed Titular Bishop of Talaptula by Pope Paul VI on the same date. He later resigned his titular see on December 31, 1970. He died at age 84.------Geologic occurrence of iron ageChamosite is a relatively uncommon mineral in nature. Since its discovery in Chamoson, only about 15 localities around the world are known to be associated with iron deposits. Chamosite may be found in occurrence with other chlorite minerals. In recent years, berthierine; a more abundant chlorite, was discovered in occurrence with chamosite in the iron deposit of Pena Colorada, Mexico. Chamosite is related to the beginning of a hydrothermal phase and occurs mainly in a mineralized breccia type stock-work in which it fills open spaces and replaces the hot rock through fissures (M.L. Rivas Sanchez et al., 2006). The Mamu-Nkporo formation in the locality of Okigwe, Nigeria was studied by Akande and Mucke (1993), and they concluded that the carbonate discovered with associated chamosite was formed in a shallow marine subtidal to intertidal environment developed during periods of rise and fall in sea level. Formation of chamosite bearing oolites record periods of increasing wave energy corresponding to storm conditions between quiet shallow marine sedimentation,(Akande and Mucke, 1993). Chamosite is a mineral from which elements may be extracted for commercial purpose. Xuanwei City in Yunnan Province has one of the highest lung cancer mortality rates in China (Dai, S. et al., 2008). This epidemic had long been blamed on hydrocarbons released from the burning of coal. Dai, S. et al. (2008) conducted a mineralogical and geochemical study of coal from two coal mines in this region, and identified chamosite as one of the main minerals in the coal------Sir Joseph Bailey, 1st Baronet of iron ageSir Joseph Bailey, 1st Baronet (21 January 1783 20 November 1858) was an English ironmaster and Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP).Bailey was born in 1783 in Great Wenham, Suffolk, the son of John Bailey, of Wakefield and his wife Susannah. His parents had moved from Normanton, near Wakefield in around 1780 by which time they had already had at least three children (Ann, Elizabeth and William). Joseph was the second child of a further five children to be born in Great Wenham (the others being an older sister, Susan, and three younger siblings, John, Thomas and Crawshay).He was involved in the iron industry in South Wales and served as High Sheriff of Monmouthshire for 1826. He also represented Worcester in the House of Commons from 1835 to 1847 and Breconshire from 1847 to 1858. In 1852 he was created a Baronet, of Glanusk Park estate in the County of Brecon.Bailey married, firstly, Maria, daughter of Joseph Latham, in 1810. In about 1826 he bought Glanusk Park and had a mansion house built there. After his first wife's death in 1827 he married, secondly, Mary Anne, daughter of John Thomas Henry Hopper, in 1830. He died in November 1858, aged 75, and was succeeded in his title by his grandson Joseph Russell Bailey, who in 1899 was elevated to the peerage as Baron Glanusk. Lady Bailey died in 1874.His daughter Jane Bailey married James Stuart Menteath, 2nd Baronet of Closeburn and Mansfield.
