Calleman, Carl Johan P.h.D was born in Stockholm, Sweden at noon May 15, 1950, which in the Sacred Calendar
corresponds to the day 5 Jaguar. Curiously this is also the exact midpoint of the month dedicated to the Roman goddess Maia.
Stockholm is fairly remote from the jungles of Guatemala, but these were some signs that maybe he had something to do there
(although of course I was only appreciate the importance of these signs at a much later point). He first became interested
in the Maya and their calendar during a trip to Mexico and Guatemala in 1979. He fell in love with this people, and also had
a feeling that this was my spiritual home on earth. Somehow it seemed that the purpose of his life was linked to this people
and their calendar, that he had become fascinated by. This was long before the Mayan calendar had become a matter of widespread
and as he read in Michael Coe’s book about the Maya that their calendar would come to an end in the year 2011 it sparked
a deep wonder in him. ”Why would a calendar end?” he asked himself although 2011 then seemed a long time into

Chapman, Don Canadian Citizenship Advocate Vancouver-born Don Chapman
lost his Canadian citizenship when, while he was a child, his father moved south of the border and became a U.S. citizen.
Mr. Chapman's identity was rooted in his father's citizenship, regardless of his mother's. After years of fighting to have
his Canadian citizenship restored, and for the rights of thousands of other so-called Lost Canadians who found themselves
jilted by immigration law vagaries, Mr. Chapman won his battle. The government enacted a bill that allowed the majority of Lost Canadians
to reclaim citizenship, but suffers still from a reluctance to fully enforce the law across many cases. Don Chapman has spent

to a country where citizenship is denied.

many articles on dioxin and waste management and co-produced several
