I’m a self proclaimed news addict. If I can watch it, read it and follow it on Twitter, I’m all over it. My hobbies include posting pictures of my meals on Instagram, starring as many songs as possible on Spotify and getting addicted to television shows that get canceled after one season.

Naturally, there is some controversy of date when this event happened. Norwich has it assigned around a decade earlier in Justinian’s reign around 552 53 CE and not toward the end of his reign in 563 CE, others like John Peter Wild (in David Jenkins below) as well also credibly place the event at least five years before 561 CE.Although some raw silk and sewn cloth were still imported, the now indigenous Byzantine silk trade and its concomitant monopoly in the West gradually became one of Byzantium’s most important trade endeavors and economic resource.

J.

Press capsule line for Urban Outfitters from a couple of years ago.
Becoming energy independent would enable us to not be quite so concerned the affairs of countries half a world away whose politics may or may not be friendly. Our only interest in that region is because those miserable stretches of dirt just happen to be on some of the more plentiful oil deposits. Actions have consequences.
