When an organism dies, the intake of 14C ceases, and what was left in the organism begins a measurable disintegration.Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5730 years (±40 years), meaning that (in accordance with the law of radioactive decay) it will take that length of time for half of the carbon present in an organism to decay into stable carbon isotopes.So when Greek people stick to their tradition to marry a Greek partner, it makes our matchmaking task easier and straightforward. As I am writing this article, in 9 days from now, there is a wedding between a Greek couple whom I matched last year.I am pleased to say that we have many great Greek customers who are very sincere and emotionally intelligent, not to mention about the well-known fact: They are very attractive and passionate!the unwritten rule is that men are free to marry women from any outside racial or ethnic group without incurring censure by their own group.The bride enters her husband’s world and is expected to fully conform.
In many strongly ethnocentric groups such as Greeks, Armenians, Jews(orthodox), French Canadians, Christian Lebanese and other Christian Arabs, Indians, Koreans, Japanese, etc.
Carbon dating produces the most reliable results when multiple samples can be tested to ensure accuracy and limit potential interferences. University of New Mexico Press: Albuquerque, NM, 1994.
Alternative dating techniques such as dendrochronology may be employed to confirm the results of radiocarbon dating.
This analysis provides a radiocarbon age of the sample, which must then be calibrated in accordance with a radiocarbon dating calibration curve such as the one pictured below.
A variety of factors have caused the amount of 14C present in the atmosphere to vary over time, resulting in deviations between the age predicted by radiocarbon dating and the absolute date of a specimen. Sample contamination must be carefully avoided to ensure measurement accuracy. Cornell University Press, Itha “Dating In Exposed and Surface Contexts”, ed.: Beck, Charlotte.
