As usual most new blogs and so on, begin with a hello article. So here is mine, explaining where the name came from.
Artemis was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities and one of the oldest. In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of forests and hills, child birth, virginity, fertility, the hunt, and often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth.
But hey, did the name of my newspaper actually came from that goddess? The answer is no, but I like the symbolism. The real origin of the name is the Artemis 30, an AA gun developed by Greece in 1982. A total of 500 rounds are carried ready to use in the mount. normally deployed in 6 twin mounts per battery, and has a maximum range of 8,400 meters and a firing rate of 800 rounds per minute per barrel.
So, now I challenge everyone who dares to try to live from that barrage of fire. Good luck.
