What is origin of leave no stone unturned?
This expression alludes to an ancient Greek legend about a general who buried a large treasure in his tent when he was defeated in battle. Those seeking the treasure consulted the Oracle of Delphi, who advised them to move every stone. The present form dates from the mid-1500s. The actual man who wrote "Leave no stone unturned" was Euripides, an ancient Greek playwright.

He was asked to leave by Josh because he was straight up trouble on tour, getting arrested and the like. From what Josh has said there was no hard feelings, but it just became difficult to work with him.
The very first hypothesis, as put forth in 1898 by Edward Ohman (who discovered the markings on the stone), was that it was some sort of "Indian Almanac".. A copy of the inscription was sent to a Minneapolis newpaper who sent it on to the Greek department of the University of Minnesota, it eventual…ly made its way to the Scandinavian Languages dept, where Professer Breda declared it a hoax, containing English words.. The stone itself went to Northwestern University where it was again considered a forgery, though the inscription itself at least 40-50 years old - possibly made by a Scandinavian traveller connected to the fur companies.. The stone was sent back to the finder (Olof Ohman) in Kensington and was not revived until examind by Hjalmer Holand in 1907 who believed the stone was connected with an expedition sent to find (and keep Christian) lost Greenlanders - an expedition which was authorized by King Magnus of Sweden in 1354 and captained by Paul Knutson.. Two reports were published in 1910, one by the Minnesota Historical Society and authored by the geologist Newton Winchell who said the inscription was roughly 500 years old; and the other by George Flom who considered the stone to be a fake based on linguistic evidence. It was Flom who first suggested that the finder (Ohman) might have inscribed the stone. (MORE)
The Rosetta Stone was discovered in July 1799 by French EngineerPierre-FranÃ§ois Bouchard; during construction at the Egyptian portcity of Rosetta. As French soldiers worked to knock down an old wall to make roomfor a new fort, they unearthed a big black slab of stone known nowas the Rosetta Stone…. It was covered with three types of writing. Hieroglyphic, Demotic,and Ancient Greek. In all of the languages on the stone, there wasthe name of a ruler, Ptolemy V . The Rosetta Stone helped us decodewhat hieroglyphics mean. Without the Rosetta Stone or knowing howto read hieroglyphics, we would not be able to learn about theAncient Egyptian culture and the different things they did ineveryday life. We would also not know the names of the pharaohs andwhat they did. (MORE)
Go way back to the 1st Century BC. Plubilius Syrus wrote a bunch of Latin proverbs, including one about people who are constantly on the move who do not put down roots. In the 15th century, Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam wrote his Adagia, a series of verses based on his studies of Latin texts. Am…ong the phrases he coined were "Between a Rock and a Hard Place," and "Crocodile Tears" and "Many hands make light work" and "Cut to the Chase." Another one he wrote was Saxum (rocks) volutum (rolled) non (no) obducitur (collect) musco (moss). Hence the phrase, "a rolling stone gathers no moss." It is likely Erasmus was inspired by Syrus' earlier writing.. But that's not the whole story. . Muddy Waters wrote a song in 1948 called "Rollin' Stone," comparing a person to Erasmus' proverb. (Whether or not Mr. Waters knew of Erasmus is irrelevant.). Brian Jones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were blues fans first and foremost -- huge Muddy Waters fans -- and Jones allegedy suggested the name of the group as a plural of Waters' "Rollin' Stone."

I think so - the actual meaning of the sentence is that you left every stone unturned, i.e. did nothing. The usual phrasing would be "I left no stone unturned", i.e. you did everything you possibly could. Triple negative actually. Which is okay. Even negatives cancel. if the sentence was "There …was not a stone I left unturned", or "There was a stone I did not leave unturned", or "There was not a stone I did not leave turned", would mean different things... The rule is meant to correct ambiguity where some say "I ain't got nobody", to me they don't have anyone, where logically not having nobody, implies you have somebody... (MORE)
Ships from the "old world" came to the ports of the "new world" (North America) with these stones in their holds to provide extra ballast.

Interesting to not…e that the majority of the valuable cargo was destined for Europe instead of North America. (MORE)

The stone is believed by some to be half of the original Stone of Scone, and said to have been presented to Cormac McCarthy by Robert the Bruce in 1314 in recognition of his support in the Battle of Bannockburn.. The proprietors of Blarney Castle list several alternative explanations for the origin…s of the Stone and its supposed powers, all of which suppose that the Stone had previously been in Ireland but was then taken to Scotland and returned to Ireland in 1314. The stories they list include:. the Stone was the stone that Jacob used as a pillow, and was brought to Ireland by the prophet Jeremiah . the Stone was the Stone of Ezel, which David hid behind on Jonathan's advice, while fleeing from King Saul, and may have been brought back to Ireland during the Crusades . the Stone was the rock that Moses struck with his staff to produce water for the Israelites, during their flight from Egypt (MORE)
The usual expression is 'not carved in stone'. If you think about how easy it is to erase something written in pencil, and a little less easy to erase something written in ink, think how hard it would be to change an inscription that had (for example) been carved on a tombstone. Almost impossible. S…o to say that something is 'not carved in stone' means that it might possibly be changed.. Also there is a hearkening back to when God wrote the Ten Commandments into stone with his own finger in Exodus. This has a twofold meaning, one, that what it written has a permanence as stated in the upper portion of the answer, and two, that God has deemed it so and so it will be.. The clearest reading of Exodus is that Moses carved God's revelation in stone and brought it down from Mount Sinai.. Answer 2: This saying could also be tracked back to its companion saying "Written in Stone" and the days of King Hammurabi of Babylon. King Hammurabi had his laws written into stone tablets (that still survive today) quoting that they should not be changed or 'marred' by anyone that came after him. This was intentional as many laws written or unwritten was changed at will of the king. Also please note that this form of written stone law pre-dates the stones of Moses (of which no known copy exists) by 500 years, also note that the story from Exodus / Deuteronomy has been changed for the current bible, the original text has 613 laws (commandments) written in stone - Torah, the law of Moses from the original Hebrew 'bibles' (see links attached).

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards came from Dartford, Kent, England - not too far away from London. The band really came together in London though.
The origin of the phrase "Written in Stone" most likely comes from the Law of Hammurabi which states that the law as written cannot be changed by anyone that follows and it was 'written in stone' so that it could not be changed. Its alternate saying, linked below, is something that is changeable.

The Rolling Stones played their first gig on 12 July 1962 in the Marquee Club in London with the following line-up: Brian Jones (Guitar) Mick Jagger (Vocals, Harmonica) Keith Richards (Rhythm Guitar) Dick Taylor (Bass) Tony Chapman (Drums) Ian Stewart (Piano) The band was founded by Brian Jones. H…e placed an ad and Ian Stewart was the first to answer it. Jagger, Richards and Taylor had already been playing together in their own amateur band. Dick Taylor left in November to return to art school and was replaced by Bill Wyman. After playing with a couple different drummers, the band invited Charlie Watts to join the group in January 1963. This was basically the line-up for the next six years: Brian Jones (Guitar) Mick Jagger (Vocals, Harmonica) Keith Richards (Rhythm Guitar) Ian Stewart (Piano) * Bill Wyman (Bass) Charlie Watts (Drums) * Basically, because in May 1963, Ian Stewart was demoted from being a member of the band in May 1963 but he remained as road manager and keyboardist until his death in 1985. He would play with them, but wasn't acknowledged as a member of the band. The Stones' manager Andrew Loog Oldham had felt that six was too many members and that Stewart didn't fit the "look" of the band. Nonetheless, Stewart contributed piano, organ, marimbas and/or percussion to all Rolling Stones albums released between 1964 and 1983, except for Beggars Banquet. This line-up of Jagger, Jones, Richards, Watts, and Wyman (with Stewart as a non-member) remained in place until Brian Jones's death in July, 1969. Jones's replacement was Mick Taylor, who in turn was replaced by Ronnie Wood in 1975. Ian Stewart died in 1985. Bill Wyman left the band in 1992. Darryl Jones has worked as a bassist for the band since 1994 but is not an official band member. (MORE)

Any kind of massage, when done improperly, can lead to bruising.

Its very easy. Read the underwritten instructions . 1. Clean the ruby with a damp cloth or toothbrush to remove any debris or marks. Dig your fingernail into the gemstone to see if you can leave a scratch. If you can, it's not a ruby.. 2. Gently scratch the ruby with a one cent coin. Choose an… area that you don't mind damaging slightly, such as the underside of a gemstone that will be set in a ring. If the gem marks, then it's not a ruby.. 3. Scratch the gem with a series of other items. Use a piece of glass and a steel knife. The knife has a hardness level of 7 and should not be able to scratch the ruby. Scratch the red stone with rough sandpaper. If there is no noticeable effect, then the gem is likely to be a genuine ruby.. 4. Rub the ruby against a clean white porcelain tile. If it's real, the ruby will leave no color or streak behind. It may even scratch the tile. If the stone leaves a colored mark on the tile, it is likely to be another type of substance. The absence of a streak isn't definitive confirmation that the ruby is genuine, but the presence of color does confirm that it isn't real.. (MORE)
