Request for "Semita Recta" as a wiki page My impression was that it simply meant "straight path" as in referring to "go the straight path" in latin. I am very curious about this phrase as a historical item. I own an antique bench from belgium circa 1900 that has an inscription carved in oak wood that reads, "anno semita recta 1664". The bench looks like a church relic.

here is all of the info I can find on "Semita Recta" Notre Dame, In Peter Grund

“Semita Recta Albertus peribet testimonium”, ‘The Right Path Albertus bears witness’ Abstract: This article presents an edition of a Middle English verse tract on alchemy based on Trinity College, Cambridge, MS R. 14. 44 (15th century). The tract, entitled “Semita Recta Albertus peribet testimonium”, is structured as a dialogue between Albertus Magnus, the famous medieval scholar (c. 1200–1280), and Elchy_ell, the Queen of the Elves. In the dialogue, Elchy- _ell instructs Albertus on how to produce an alchemical elixir that will produce silver or gold. The Semita Recta is a poem of 64 rhymed lines. The setting of this description is a meeting between the medieval scholar Albertus Magnus (c. 1200–1280) and Elchy_ell, the Queen of the Elves, in a “weldernesse” outside Damascus (see 4.1).

Hence, the Semita Recta is to my knowledge unique among Middle English alchemical poems in exploiting the dialogue format as it does.

"Jamiut Tawarikh"

Jamiut Tawarikh, was one of the grandest projects undertaken by the Ilkhanate king Ghazan Khan (1295-1304). The great work was done by the king’s wazir Rasheeduddin Fazlullah Hamedani who wrote it in Persian and chronicled the history up to the reign of Oljeitju (1304-1316). The breadth of coverage of the work often caused it to be dubbed as the first world history.

  • Comparison between the Saudi government and the Islamic State. See here.
  • Baigongguan. The former prison for political prisoners, located in Chongqing, China, run by the Kuomintang during the Chinese civil war. Most notable is the fact that almost all the communist prisoners were killed in November 1949, the month after the communists had won the civil war and declared the founding of the People's Republic of China. This would appear to be a serious case of war crimes. A photograph of the entrance is already available on Wikipedia. A large museum is located nearby, detailing the history of Baigongguan.
  • Bhangarh ruins – hunted ruins in India; Bhangarh has many references to the ruins (suggesting the area is actually known for its ruins); might be superfluous to have a page for Bhangarh which is primarily about its ruins and another page specifically for Bhangarh ruins

  • Chinese Empire reform movement
  • Dong Da Mount Đống Đa Mound- In the middle of Dong Da (vietnamese Đống Đa) District, Hanoi, Vietnam, is a park which has the same name (coord. 21.011978 N, 105.824489 E). In this park is a hill made by the dead bodies of chinese soldiers dead after a battle against the vietnamese army. Part of the story is written in the park on a monument, but it's written with the chinese symbol. I would like an article to discribe the battle : who were the leaders, when the battle took place, how did they organise, how many bodies are under this hill... I understood that China consider that everywhere is a dead chinese soldier is China. So the vietnamese put all the bodies together to make the chinese part as small as possible ! The only page I found is the page for the district, with only the name of the streets.

Australia and entrance into the Commonwealth of Nations similar set of circumstances led to other colonies of the British Empire asking for their independence from Britain (that is, Australia, New Zealand, Newfoundland, and Irish Free State). WWI had given these former colonies their ‘trial by fire’ as well as Canada; it, too, demonstrated that these nations were able to stand on their own. During WWII, they, like Canada, fought with Britain as allies, and not as colonies.

To find the birth places of all, if not most of the Kamikaze Pilots of Japan during World War II. To be more specific, which Japanese islands these pilots were born in. As an example, "twenty-two pilots were born in Kyushu Island and fifteen were born in Hokkaido Island," etc. This may actually take someone to physically investigate birth records kept in Japan to search all the known pilots who have flown in the suicide missions. And once these records are completed, these same records must be verified by another individual for accuracy.

  • Brazilian Civil War Brazil experienced numerous civil wars, especially in the 19th century. There was no singular event such as the United States experienced, so this link would be something of a misnomer and there is already a list of Rebellions and revolutions in Brazil. I have changed the only link to this red link to rebellions and revolutions in Brazil, which was the only one extant on Wikipedia. However, it may be a good idea for someone to start a page covering the general topic.
