Arachosia

Arachosia is the Hellenized name of an ancient satrapy in the eastern part of the Achaemenid, Parthian, Greco-Bactrian, Indo-Scythian empires. Arachosia was centred on the Arghandab valley in modern-day southern Afghanistan, although its influence extended east to as far as the Indus River; the main river of Arachosia was called Arachōtós, now known as the Arghandab River, a tributary of the Helmand River. The Greek term "Arachosia" corresponds to the Aryan land of Harauti, around modern-day Helmand; the Arachosian capital or metropolis was called Alexandria Arachosia or Alexandropolis and lay in what is today Kandahar in Afghanistan. Arachosia was a part of the region of ancient Ariana. "Arachosia" is the Latinized form of Greek Ἀραχωσία - Arachōsíā. "The same region appears in the Avestan Vidēvdāt under the indigenous dialect form ‎ Haraxvaitī-." In Old Persian inscriptions, the region is referred to written h-r-u-v-t-i. This form is the "etymological equivalent" of Vedic Sanskrit Sarasvatī-, the name of a river meaning "rich in waters/lakes" and derived from sáras- "lake, pond.".

"Arachosia" was named after the name of a river that runs through it, in Greek Arachōtós, today known as the Arghandab, a left bank tributary of the Helmand. Arachosia bordered Drangiana to the west, Paropamisadae to the north, a part of ancient India to the east, Gedrosia to the south. Isidore and Ptolemy each provide a list of cities in Arachosia, among them Alexandria, which lay on the river Arachotus; this city is mis-identified with present-day Kandahar in Afghanistan, the name of, thought to be derived from "Alexandria", reflecting a connection to Alexander the Great's visit to the city on his campaign towards India. But a recent discovery of an inscription on a clay tablet has provided proof that'Kandahar' was a city that traded with Persia well before Alexander's time. Isidore and Pliny refer to the city as "metropolis of Arachosia." In his list, Ptolemy refers to a city named Arachotus or Arachoti, the earlier capital of the land. Pliny the Elder and Stephen of Byzantium mention. Hsuan Tsang refers to the name as Kaofu.

This city is identified today with Arghandab. The inhabitants of Arachosia were Iranian peoples, referred to as Arachoti, it is assumed that they were called Paktyans by ethnicity, that name may have been in reference to the ethnic Paṣtun tribes. Isidorus of Charax in his 1st century CE "Parthian stations" itinerary described an "Alexandropolis, the metropolis of Arachosia", which he said was still Greek at such a late time: "Beyond is Arachosia, and the Parthians call this White India. As far as this place the land is under the rule of the Parthians." Ptolemy mentions several tribes of Arachosia by name, the Pargyetae, and, to the south, the Sidri and Eoritae. Despite attempts to connect the Eoritae with the "Arattas" of the Mahabharata or with present-day Aroras, who populated this land and migrated to India after partition, the identity of these tribes is unknown, Ptolemy's orthography is disputed; the region is first referred to in the Achaemenid-era Elamite Persepolis fortification tablets.

It appears again in the Old Persian and Aramaic inscriptions of Darius I and Xerxes I among lists of subject peoples and countries. It is subsequently identified as the source of the ivory used in Darius' palace at Susa. In the Behistun inscription, the King recounts that a Persian was thrice defeated by the Achaemenid governor of Arachosia, who so ensured that the province remained under Darius' control, it has been suggested that this "strategically unintelligible engagement" was ventured by the rebel because "there were close relations between Persia and Arachosia concerning the Zoroastrian faith." The chronologically next reference to Arachosia comes from the Greeks and Romans, who record that under Darius III the Arachosians and Drangians were under the command of a governor who, together with the army of the Bactrian governor, contrived a plot of the Arachosians against Alexander. Following Alexander's conquest of the Achaemenids, the Macedonian appointed his generals as governors. Following the Partition of Babylon, the region became part of the Seleucid Empire, which traded it to the Mauryan Empire in 305 BCE as part of an alliance.

The Shunga dynasty overthrew the Mauryans in 185 BC, but shortly afterwards lost Arachosia to the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom. It became part of the break-away Indo-Greek Kingdom in the mid 2nd century BCE. Indo-Scythians expelled the Indo-Greeks by the mid 1st century BCE, but lost the region to the Arsacids and Indo-Parthians. At what time Parthian rule over Arachosia was reestablished cannot be determined with any authenticity. From Isidore 19 it is certain that a part of the region was under Arsacid rule in the 1st century CE, that the Parthians called it Indikē Leukē, "

Miller Park Walk of Fame

The Miller Park Walk of Fame was established by the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team in 2001 with the opening of Miller Park. It "commemorates some of the greatest names in Milwaukee baseball history," covering both the entire history of the Brewers and the earlier period during which the Milwaukee Braves were the local Major League team. Although the Milwaukee Brewers do not have an official Hall of Fame, the honor of induction into the Walk is considered to be the equivalent; each member of the Walk is honored with a home plate-shaped granite slab, featuring the member's name and signature, as well as years associated with Milwaukee. The slabs are arranged around Miller Park, circling the stadium and culminating with the Hank Aaron and Robin Yount statues in front of the home plate area of the park. Through 2019, 20 members of the Milwaukee Brewers and Braves have been inducted; the voting process involves 100 Wisconsin media members and Brewers officials. In 2007, a second ballot featuring members of Milwaukee Braves was sent to voters.

To be elected, nominees must receive 75% of the vote from all ballots received. Individuals must receive at least 5% of the vote to remain eligible in future years. Induction is limited only to officials who spend at least three years in Milwaukee.

On May 27, the single "My Side" was made available to Spotify with the official music video being released on May 31. Upon its release, Nothin Personal received positive reviews from critics.

Scott Glaysher of HipHopDX rated the mixtape 3 out 5 saying, " pretty clear that Cozz considers himself underrated amongst his rap peers, as he mentions that idea frequently" and " a year removed from that solo debut, Cozz still has a lot of time to show and prove. Nothin Personal isn’t perfection or an obvious contender for “2016 project of the year,” but it’s good enough to keep us from writing Cozz off, for now." Paul A. Thompson of Pitchfork Media gave the mixtape a 6.9 out of 10 saying "His new offering, Nothin Personal, is a low-concept stroll through the Crip-controlled blocks of Cozz’s youth."
