Today’s Birthday: ALEXANDRA OF DENMARK (1844)

Alexandra of Denmark (1844)

Though she was of royal blood, Princess Alexandra had a relatively normal upbringing. It was not until after she wed Prince Albert Edward of Wales in 1863 that her father, Christian IX, was crowned king of Denmark, and she did not ascend to the station of queen consort until many years after that. As queen, she devoted herself to charitable works and was beloved by the British public. She was held in such high regard, in fact, that society women adopted what physical impediment of hers?More… Discuss



The Spanish Civil War

From 1936 to 1939, the Spanish Civil War raged as General Francisco Franco‘s Nationalists overthrew the republican government. Franco’s forces were aided by Germany and Italy, who used Spain as a test site for blitzkrieg warfare on the eve of World War II. Fierce and bloody skirmishes characterized the war of attrition, which claimed 500,000 lives. The war’s end brought a period of dictatorship that lasted until the mid-1970s. Deemed the first “media war,” it was covered by which famous authors? More…Discuss



Northern Darwin’s Frog Not the Fittest

During his 19th-century around-the-world voyage aboard the HMS Beagle, famed British naturalist Charles Darwinmade numerous discoveries that helped him formulate his theories of evolution. One of the creatures he discovered during this voyage, the Darwin’s frog, escapes predators by camouflaging itself as a dead leaf. However, this evolutionary advantage was not enough to save it. Researchers suspect that a fungal disease called chytridiomycosis wiped out the northern Darwin’s frog species completely and is also killing off large numbers of the southern species. This could be one of only a few known examples of extinction by infection. More… Discuss



The Taman Shud Case: Mystery Man Found Dead on Somerton Beach (1948)

On the night of November 30, 1948, passersby on Australia’s Somerton Beach saw a man they believed to be drunk or sleeping. The next day, the mystery man was determined to be dead, which opened the still unsolved Taman Shud Case. The dead man has never been identified. Though investigators promptly searched the body and found normal things like chewing gum in the mystery man’s pocket, something strange was later found, taking the case in a new—but equally elusive—direction. What was it? More… Discuss
