Regina Spektor – Hero


He never, ever saw it
Coming at all
He never, ever saw it
Coming at all

He never, ever saw it
Coming at all
It’s alright, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right

Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin
Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin

(Vrrr)
Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin
It’s alright, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right

No one’s got it all
No one’s got it all
No one’s got it a-a-all

Power to the people
We don’t want it
We want pleasure
And the TVs try to rape us
And I guess that they’re succeeding

And we’re going to these meetings
But we’re not doing any meeting
And we’re trying to be faithful, but we’re
Cheating, cheating, cheating

Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin
Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin

(Vrrr)
Hey, open wide, here comes
Original sin
It’s alright, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right

No one’s got it all
No one’s got it all
No one’s got it a-a-all

Power to the people
We don’t want it
We want pleasure
And the TVs try to rape us
And I guess that they’re succeeding

And we’re going to these meetings
But we’re not doing any meeting
And we’re trying to be faithful, but we’re
Cheating, cheating, cheating

I’m the hero of the story
Don’t need to be saved
I’m the hero of the story
Don’t need to be saved

I’m the hero of the story
Don’t need to be saved
I’m the hero of the story
Don’t need to be saved
It’s alright, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-

Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right, it’s al-
Right

No one’s got it all
No one’s got it all
No one’s got it a-a-all

All
All
All
All

All, all, all, all, all
All, all, all, all, all
All, all, all, all, all
All, all, all, all, all
All, all, all, all, all
All, all, all, all

U2 & B.B. KING


Quotation: Sophocles on Silence and grace


Silence gives the proper grace to women.

Sophocles (496 BC-406 BC) Discuss

I think this one is applicable to both genders: Silence is golden, in some cases  it is philosophical!

Today’s Birthday: B.B. KING (1925)


B.B. King (1925)

A singer and guitarist born into a sharecropping family in the Mississippi Delta region of the US, King began playing guitar at 12. He worked as a radio DJ in Memphis before coming to prominence as a guitarist in 1952. He has toured widely, averaging over 300 shows a year for nearly 30 years. King famously named his guitar Lucille after a woman who inspired a fight at one of his concerts that ended with the venue burning down. King’s first name is Riley. What does B.B. stand for? More… Discuss

MONTREAL PROTOCOL SIGNED TO PROTECT THE OZONE LAYER (1987)


 

Montreal Protocol Signed to Protect the Ozone Layer (1987)

The Montreal Protocol was enacted in response to the discovery that the ozone layer—which shields life on Earth from harmful radiation—was diminishing. Signed by the majority of the world’s nations, the treaty mandates the decreased use of ozone-depleting substances such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and has been amended several times based on new scientific data. By 1993, CFC production had dropped dramatically. If the agreement is followed, the ozone layer is expected to recover by what year? More… Discuss

 


 

Gerbils Regain Hearing through Stem Cell Treatment

UK researchers have restored hearing in animals with the use of stem cells for the first time. About 10 percent of people with profound hearing loss have damaged nerve cells, called spiral ganglion neurons, that fail to detect signals created by sound vibrations. Using stem cells from a human embryo—which can become any other type of cell—the scientists created cells similar to the spiral ganglion neurons. They then injected them into the ears of deaf gerbils. By the end of the study, an average of 45 percent of the animals’ hearing range had been restored. However, scientists said the possibility of treating humans in this way is still distant. More… Discuss
