Today’s Holiday: Feast of Forgiveness


Today’s Holiday:
Feast of Forgiveness

The Festa del Perdono, or Feast of Forgiveness, is observed annually in Assisi, Italy, where St. Francis built his humble hermitage, known as the Porciúncula (“little portion”), in the 13th century. Porciúncula also refers to the plenary indulgence that used to be given to those who visited this sanctuary on August 2, the date set by Pope Honorius III in 1221. Although in the beginning the indulgence could only be gained in the Porciúncula, the privilege was eventually extended to all churches having a connection with the Franciscan order.

Today’s Birthday: Myrna Loy (1905)


Today’s Birthday:
Myrna Loy (1905)

Originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp, film actress Myrna Loy soon earned praise for her witty sophistication in 1934’s The Thin Man. By 1936, she was a top box-office draw. Offscreen, she was never associated with Hollywood glamour or scandal. Instead, she was one of the few actors to protest against the House Committee on Un-American Activities during the McCarthy era. Her outspokenness on another issue resulted in her inclusion on what world leader’s personal blacklist? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History: Henry Hudson Discovers Hudson Bay (1610)


This Day in History:
Henry Hudson Discovers Hudson Bay (1610)

After several failed attempts to find a northeast passage to Asia, Hudson, a veteran sea captain, sailed west and began probing N America to find a way through it by ship. In 1610, he discovered Hudson Bay but lingered too long and became trapped there by winter ice. When the weather warmed, Hudson wanted to continue exploring, but his starved and diseased crew refused. They mutinied and set Hudson, his son, and a few others adrift in a small boat without food or water. What happened to them?

Article of the Day: The Stoning of the Devil (idolatric stupidity!!!)


Article of the Day:
The Stoning of the Devil

The Stoning of the Devil, or Stoning of the Jamarat, is one of the rituals performed by millions of Muslims during the hajj, or annual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. To represent the casting aside of their low desires, pilgrims fling pebbles at three walls, called jamarat, in the city of Mina. Although the jamarat used to be tall pillars, Saudi authorities replaced them with walls in 2004 to make the practice safer. What dangers do pilgrims face during the ritual?

California tosses new limit on Brockovich chemical | The Sacramento Bee


http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article164863427.html

California hasn’t “tossed” anything… The California Department of Health did a sloppy job adopting the maximum contaminant level (MCL) almost four years ago… we told them then what they were doing was wrong… they didn’t follow the law. Which is one of the reasons the Drinking Water department was gutted and transferred to the State Water Board two years ago! The law is clear… the MCL should be set as close to the Public Health Goal (PHG) as is technically and economically feasible. The PHG is 0.02 ug/L… and they set the MCL at 10 ug/L. We told them the MCL should have been set at 2 ug/L four years ago… but they bowed to political pressure… not science and snapped and artificial line at 10 ug/L based on the number of water system sources impacted… not what the law says! Here is where strange bedfellows hatched their plot… the polluters… who contend Chome-6 is “naturally occurring” conspired with so-called industry leaders to challenge the MCL in court… we knew they would win… the process was flawed from the beginning… an outcome borne from conspiracy. First question one would ask themselves is why does the chemical polluter industry spend tens of millions to defeat a drinking water MCL for a “naturally occurring” element… because it’s not! That is a lie they tell politicians. Chome-6 was and still is used in scores of processes and dumped across our country in wastewater discharges that recharge our groundwater sources. Here is the moral to the story… be careful what you ask for. The MCL has not been “tossed out”… but the State is going to redo the part of the process they screwed up. I bet this time they won’t bow to “political” pressure and do the right thing. I have complete faith in the process… sticktoitiveness… and trust the State Water Board will make sure it is done right. My prediction… the MCL is set properly in accordance with law at 2 ug/L or less. In the last four years… science has improved on treatment techniques and associated costs significantly. The market is funny that way… tends to follow demand. Bottomline… I look forward to a stronger MCL, much more protective of the health and safety of our families.
