Today’s Holiday: Radha Ashtami


Today’s Holiday:
Radha Ashtami

This Hindu holiday celebrates the birth of Radha, who was the mistress of the god Krishna during the period of his life when he lived among the cowherds of Vrindavana. Although she was the wife of another gopa (cowherd), she was the best-loved of Krishna’s consorts and his constant companion. Some Hindus believe that Radha is a symbol of the human soul drawn to the ineffable god Krishna. Images of Radha are bathed on this day and then dressed and ornamented before being offered food and worship. Hindus bathe in the early morning and fast all day to show their devotion to Radha.

This Day in History:
Chemical Element Meitnerium Is Synthesized (1982)

In 1982, a German research team led by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Münzenberg at the Institute for Heavy Ion Research created a new element. While bombarding bismuth-209 atoms with iron-58 ions, they detected a single atom of what is now called meitnerium. Its atomic number is 109. The artificially-produced, radioactive element is named for Lise Meitner, the Austrian-Swedish physicist and mathematician who helped discover nuclear fission.

France 24 : World leaders condemn North Korea for firing missile over Japan


World leaders condemn North Korea for firing missile over Japan

Western leaders and diplomats from around the globe have condemned Pyongyang’s launch of a missile over Japan, with US President Donald Trump saying Tuesday that “all options are on the table” in dealing with the North Korean nuclear threat.

In a terse written statement, Trump said that North Korea’s missile launch has “signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior”. “Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation in the region and among all nations of the world,” Trump continued, adding: “All options are on the table.” For the first time on Tuesday, North Korea fired a midrange ballistic missile designed to carry a nuclear payload over Japan that splashed into the northern Pacific Ocean. The aggressive launch over the territory of a close US ally sent a clear message of defiance as Washington and South Korea conduct joint war games in the region. The missile travelled some 2,700 kilometres (1,677 miles) over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido and sparked new fears about a confrontation between Pyongyang and America’s Asian allies in the region, especially as Trump has taken a hard line against the country.
