On War and Peace (poetic thought by George-B)


On War and Peace (poetic thought by George-B)

The war on peace
Continues uninterrupted – the perpetual war-
we’re made to believe it’s necessary
as tears in the foundation of our humanity, to keep it moist…

Humanity, whatever else is left to tear, decays, into the darkness of free depravity, selfishness, greed, corruption….at our expense, on our dime, irrevocable sentences passed, bought on our dime…

The answers to the questions never asked
put in prospective the final frontier – the  free fall of
free market,
free the pieces of peace left,
free beluga,
and tortoise…

not to be accused of trade in temples,
they made temple of trade, hymns, prayers an obscene virtual g-ds- cyclopes
like

Freeze the hypocritical insanity of the one man war warrior, man’o’war.

Quotation: Henry James on Summer Aternoons… (beautiful words indeed-words simply transcends!)


Summer afternoon…the two most beautiful words in the English language.

Today’s Birthday: IDA NODDACK (1896)


Ida Noddack (1896)

One of the first prominent female chemists in Germany, Noddack was nominated several times for a Nobel Prize but never won. Still, she made a number of remarkable contributions to science, co-discovering the element rhenium with her future husband and proposing for the first time the idea of nuclear fission. She also participated in the discovery of another element, which her team named masurium, but they could not prove its existence. It was finally isolated by others in 1937 and named what? More… Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: THE CALAVERAS SKULL HOAX BEGINS (1866)


The Calaveras Skull Hoax Begins (1866)

What began as a practical joke became a famous, decades-long scientific hoax when a prominent geologist not only fell for it, but vigorously defended it as real. After miners in Calaveras County, California, claimed to have found a human skull deep within a mine, Harvard University Professor Josiah Whitney—then the State Geologist of California—announced that it was the earliest evidence of humans on the continent. Where might the miners who planted the skull have obtained it in the first place? More… Discuss

 

WORLD’S LONGEST PRIME NUMBER FOUND


World’s Longest Prime Number Found

It took 1,000 computers 39 days to come up with the longest prime number yet known. It has 17,425,170 digits and is calculated by multiplying 2 by itself 57,885,161 times and then subtracting 1.Curtis Cooper, a computer science professor at the University of Central Missouri who collaborated on the discovery of two earlierrecord prime numbers, is credited with the latest find. He is so passionate about prime numbers that he already has the university’s computers crunching numbers in search of an even higher one, a task that could take between five and seven years. More…Discuss

THE VERY LARGE TELESCOPE


The Very Large Telescope

Set on a remote and inhospitable mountain in Chile‘s Atacama Desert, the Very Large Telescope (VLT) is actually an array of four large telescopes. The telescopes can be operated together to achieve an angular resolution so precise that the array could theoretically be used to distinguish between the two headlights of a car on the Moon. The VLT captured the first image of a planet outside the solar system. What do the four telescopes’ names mean in the local Mapudungun languageMore… Discuss

 


I would resign too!


Isn’t that a bloody fact!

Last December, I wrote a post titled You Call This Justice? DOJ Criticized for Its Settlement with “Too Big to Jail” Bank HSBC. It appears that the US Justice Department isn’t too keen on bringing criminal charges against ANY wealthy bankers—not just those who work for HSBC, a huge international bank that has knowingly laundered money for drug cartels and murderers. The unethical shenanigans of the banksters of Wall Street that led to the near collapse of the US economy and to a recession don’t seem to merit jail time for the perpetrators—just a slap on the wrist and a fine.  No individual fines are paid though. The mega banks pay the fines and the banksters continue to go about their business…and continue to earn hefty salaries and bonuses.

At “Wall Street Reform: Oversight of Financial Stability and Consumer and Investor Protections,” the first…

Rehabilitate Your Heart

Think about how hard activities can  become as you lose muscle. Activities such as getting up and out of a chair without using your arm strength, getting off the floor, walking up and down stairs while carrying objects, carrying in groceries from the store, maintenance of your home, lifting or holding a grandchild. These are concerns patients I have worked with bring to me. Things they would like to do but don’t have the strength to handle. 

My answer is building muscle, which we can do at any age. I have had people with heart disease in their 90’s working with weight machines. I start most with dumbbells or soup cans and build them up to exercises using their own body for resistance, then if able get them to the weight machines. The results are not always noticeable in the physique, but rather in the abilities to do perform activities of daily living. As…
