Military Dictionary and Gazetteer
In ancient times, the name of the northwestern part of Iran, which was bounded by the Caspian Sea on the north, Persia on the south, Parthia on the east, and Assyria on the west. The Medians were in language, religion, and manners very nearly allied to the Persians. After they had shaken off the yoke of the Assyrians, their tribes united about 708 B.C., chose Dejoces for their chief, and made Ecbatana their capital. His son Phraortes, or Arphaxad, subdued the Persians. Cyaxares, the son of Phraortes, in alliance with Nabopolassar, king of Babylon, overthrew the Assyrian empire about 604 B.C., spread the terror of his arms as far as Egypt and the farthest bounds of Asia Minor, and vanquished the brigand hordes of Scythia, who had carried their ravages as far as Syria. He was succeeded by his son Astyage, who was deposed (560 B.C.) by his own grandson Cyrus, king of Persia; and from this time the two nations are spoken of as one people. After the death of Alexander the Great (324 B.C.), the northwest portion of Media became a separate kingdom, and existed till the time of Augustus; the other portion, under the name of Great Media, forming a part of the Syrian monarchy. Media was on several occasions separated from Persia. In 152 B.C., Mithridates I. took Great Media from the Syrians, and annexed it to the Parthian empire, and about 36 B.C., it had a king of its own, named Artavasdes, against whom Mark Antony made war. Under the Sassanian dynasty, the whole of Media was united to Persia. It became, during the 14th and 15th centuries, the stronghold of the Turkoman tribes. In early times the Medes were a warlike race, and were distinguished for their skill with the bow. They were also celebrated for their horsemanship, and it was from them that the Persians adopted this and other favorite exercises and acquirements. In subsequent times, they appear to have become effeminated by luxury.

Just with the internet... there's a lot of great accounts online and on social media that teach the game, i think when I started coaching like 10 years ago, the biggest thing I noticed was there's just a huge information gap between how we teach the game and how we coach the game at the highest level versus what you're exposed to in high school and younger.
We keep an eye on everything... the business of fashion, competitive brands, blogs, music, events, social media… everything, this is how we continue to forecast what our customers want instead of chasing trends.
The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling. Both Bee and TBS disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and Turner Broadcasting System must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.
It doesn't mean I support China, but I understand China, because they fear a controversy is going to happen, i understand China's position too, because she is powerful. She has the whole media behind her.
... Overall, I wonder if the sheer number of celebrities on the trail only added to the perception that Clinton was part of the elite, as much as this vote was a backlash against it, even though Trump himself is a celebrity... he was still running against the media mainstream.
