Kenneth Tompkins Bainbridge (1904)

Bainbridge was an American physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, the US government program that produced the first atomic bomb. He was the director of Project Trinity, the first nuclear test explosion—the sole test before the bombs were used. The successful test took place in New Mexico on July 16, 1945, and Bainbridge called the blast “a foul and awesome display.” He later became an outspoken opponent of nuclear testing. What was Bainbridge’s other notable scientific accomplishment? More… Discuss

Quotation: George Eliot on cruelty

Cruelty, like every other vice, requires no motive outside of itself,—it only requires opportunity.

This Day in the Yesteryear: SIX-YEAR-OLD ADAM WALSH KIDNAPPED (1981)

Six-Year-Old Adam Walsh Kidnapped (1981)

Adam Walsh disappeared in 1981 after his mother left him playing video games at a department store in Hollywood, Florida, while she shopped nearby. Two weeks later, his severed head was found in a canal, but the investigation was largely mishandled, and no one was ever arrested. His father, John Walsh, devoted his life to advocating for missing children and became the host of the TV showAmerica’s Most Wanted. In 2008, police closed the case on Adam. Who do they believe killed him? More… Discuss


Breakfast Important for Heart Health

Many of us are guilty of skipping breakfast, but that does not mean it is good for us. In fact, the opposite may very well be true. Skipping breakfast could place added strain on the body, putting those who do it at greater risk of cardiovascular problems. A recent study of older men found that those who routinely skipped breakfast were 27 percent more likely to suffer from heart problems than those who were in the habit of eating in the morning. Perhaps we should all pay a little more heed to the adage about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. More… Discuss


Hedwig Elizabeth Charlotte of Holstein-Gottorp

Hedwig is perhaps best remembered for her diary, which chronicled her life in the Swedish royal court. In 1774, when she was 15 years old, she married her cousin, the future King Charles XIII. The marriage was arranged by Charles’s older brother, King Gustav III, who hoped the union would ensure the continuation of his family’s power. It did not work. Habitually unfaithful, Charles died childless. Hedwig also engaged in affairs—including with the alleged lover of what other queen? More… Discuss

Report: Pelosi Killed Privacy


220px-nancy_pelosiThe respected Foreign Policy magazine details how the recent close vote on the NSA warrantless surveillance program was heading to a victory for privacy when the White House called in Nancy Pelosi. With heavy pressure from Pelosi, the White House was able to get just enough votes to kill privacy. Even with her ignoble role in this vote (and prior work to reduce civil liberties), many democrats are still supporting Pelosi in what is now a robotic form of politics. As their leader takes an axe to privacy, Democrats are again adopting the mantra that the other guys are worse and she is still good on other issues — making privacy just another item to trade off as part of the blue state/red state paradigm maintained by our duopoly of government.

At pinagpala rin naman ang anak mong si Hesus.

Ipanalangin mo kaming makasalanan
Ngayon at kung kami’y mamamatay.


Salam Maria penuh rahmat Tuhan besertamu,
Terpujilah engkau diantara wanita,
dan terpujilah buah tubuhmu Yesus,
Santa Maria Bunda Allah,
Doakanlah kami yang berdosa ini,
sekarang dan selama-lamanya.


Wees gegroet, Maria, vol van genade.
de Heer is met u.
Gij zijt de gezegende onder de vrouwen,
en gezegend is Jezus, de vrucht van uw schoot.
Heilige Maria, Moeder van God.
Bid voor ons zondaars,
nu en in het uur van onze dood.


Terve, Maria, armoitettu,
Herra sinun kanssasi;
Siunattu sinä naisten joukossa ja
siunattu kohtusi hedelmä Jeesus.
Pyhä Maria, Jumalan äiti,
rukoille meidän syntisten puolesta
nyt ja kuolemamme hetkellä.

Quotation: Jerome K. Jerome – on LOVE

A boy’s love comes from a full heart; a man’s is more often the result of a full stomach. Indeed, a man’s sluggish current may not be called love, compared with the rushing fountain that wells up when a boy’s heart is struck with the heavenly rod.

Today’s: JANE “JINNY” BUNFORD (1895)

Jane “Jinny” Bunford (1895)

Standing well over seven and a half feet tall, Bunford was twice recognized during her lifetime as the tallest person in the world. She is also believed to have had the longest hair, at 8 ft 1 in (2.5 m) long. Though she died in 1922, she was featured in the 1971 Guinness Book of World Records after her skeleton was discovered on display at Birmingham University. Bunford’s height likely resulted from her pituitary gland secreting excessive growth hormones after what childhood accident?More…

The Short Creek Raid (1953)

Before dawn on July 26, 1953, more than 100 Arizona state police officers and National Guard soldiers entered Short Creek, home to about 400 Mormon fundamentalists, many of whom illegally practiced polygamy. Almost the whole community was arrested, and 263 children were seized from their parents. Arizona’s governor described it as a “police action against insurrection,” but the raid drew widespread criticism. Community members knew the raid was coming. What were they doing when officers arrived? More… Discuss



Train Derailment in Spain Kills at Least 80

The operator of a high-speed train that derailed in Spain on Wednesday evening, killing at least 80 of its 247 passengers and injuring dozens more, is under investigation for failing to maintain a safe speed. Asecurity camera captured footage of the train hurtling around a curved stretch of track before flying off the rails, and the driver has reportedly admitted that the train was traveling at more than double the speed limit when the derailment occurred. Spain’s prime minister has declared three days ofofficial mourning in the wake of the disaster, one of Europe’s worst rail incidents in recent decades. More… Discuss



The End of Civilization

Throughout history, people have feared that civilization, human life, and even planet Earth could one day come to an end, either as a result of natural, manmade, or supernatural causes. Catastrophic doomsday scenarios include antibiotic resistant super-bacteria devastating humanity and runaway global warming rendering Earth’s climate uninhabitable. Among the more bizarre potential threats is what field of science, which some fear will give rise to out-of-control, self-replicating robots? More… Discuss
