Quotation: Frances Hodgson Burnett

Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world … but people don’t know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen.

Marble was an American tennis player who began playing at age 15 and rose rapidly in the national tennis rankings after 1931. She won 18 Grand Slam championships: five in singles, six in doubles, and seven in mixed doubles. Her personal life, however, was filled with tragedy and intrigue. Her husband was killed during World War II, just days after Marble had suffered a miscarriage. She attempted suicide but recovered and, in 1945, began spying for US intelligence.

European Explorer Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo Discovers California (1542)

In 1520, Cabrillo, an explorer in the service of Spain, landed in Mexico and joined in the conquests of Mexico and Guatemala. Some 20 years later, he accompanied an expedition up the west coast of Mexico, assuming its command after the death of its original commander. He then proceeded to explore much of the coast of what is now the state of California, becoming the first European to do so. How far north did he get before complications from a broken bone, possibly gangrene, took his life? More… Discuss



Afternoon Naps Boost Kids’ Brainpower

In a recent study, preschoolers appeared to better remember their lessons when put to sleep for an hour after lunch. Experts have long believed that sleep plays a role in the learning process, though they do not yet fully understand precisely how, and this study suggests that this holds true even in children as young as three. More… Discuss
