Today’s Holiday: Pancake Day

Today’s Holiday:
Pancake Day

For the people of Olney, England, and Liberal, Kansas, Pancake Day is more than another name for Shrove Tuesday. The old custom of making pancakes on the Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday has survived in the form of a Pancake Race. Ladies of both towns run a 450-yard course, and participants must wear a skirt, an apron, and a headscarf, and must toss their pancakes in the air three times as they run. The winner of the Kansas race is announced by a phone call to Olney immediately after it is over. The Olney race dates back to 1445; the Liberal, Kansas, race has been run since 1950.

Today’s Birthday: Gerardus Mercator (1512)

Today’s Birthday:
Gerardus Mercator (1512)

Mercator was a Flemish geographer, mathematician, and cartographer who perfected the first map using the Mercator projection, the translation of the spherical earth to a two-dimensional flat plane. In it, parallels and meridians are rendered as straight lines spaced to produce an accurate ratio of latitude to longitude at any point. It permits mariners to steer a course over long distances without continually adjusting compass readings. What map-related term was coined by Mercator?

This Day in History: Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” Speech (1946)

This Day in History:
Winston Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” Speech (1946)

The phrase “Iron Curtain” refers to the political, military, and ideological barrier erected by the USSR after WWII to seal itself and its dependent eastern European allies off from contact with the West. Churchill’s use of the phrase in a 1946 speech at a US college, though initially perceived as antagonistic, popularized the term. The Iron Curtain largely ceased to exist in 1990, when the communists of eastern Europe finally abandoned one-party rule. What are some earlier uses of the phrase?

Quote of the Day: Mark Twain

Quote of the Day:
Mark Twain

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day: The Space Elevator

Article of the Day:
The Space Elevator

A space elevator is a hypothetical megastructure capable of transporting material from Earth—or another celestial body—into space without the use of rockets. The concept was first conceived by Russian inventor Konstantin Tsiolkovsky in 1895. Many of today’s proposed designs incorporate tensile towers built out of advanced materials like carbon nanotubes, which are very strong and lightweight. By 1978, technology had advanced enough that working space elevators could have been constructed where? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Build Bulging Bigger Legs Fast With This Workout

    This six-move legs session will hit your quads, hamstrings and glutes hard, as well as your entire core. It’s comprised of two tough straight sets then four more exercises paired into two supersets! Simply do the moves in order, sticking to the sets, reps and rest periods detailed, then have yourself a great result after!

    How to do the workout

    This six-move session is made up of two straight sets and two supersets. Do move 1, sticking to the sets, reps and rest shown, then do all reps of move 2. After resting, do moves 3A and 3B as a superset, and the same again for 4A and 4B, to shock your legs into growing bigger and stronger.

    1. Deadlift

    Sets 5 Reps 8 Rest 60sec


    • Stand tall with the barbell in front of you, then squat down and grasp it with an overhand grip.
    • Keeping your chest up and core braced, press down through your heels to stand up.
    • Push your hips forwards at the top, then lower.

    2. Leg press

    Sets 5 Reps 8 Rest 60sec


    • Sit in the machine positioned correctly according to the instructions.
    • Place your feet lower and closer together to work your quads more, or higher and wider to hit your hamstrings and glutes more directly.
    • Bend your knees to bring them towards your chest, then press back to the start.

    Superset 1

    This first superset will hit your hamstrings and quads hard. Because these two major muscles will be thoroughly warmed up from the first two straight sets, try to go as heavy as you can while maintaining correct form and completing all the reps. Go slow on the eccentric part of the move, where you return to the start, to work your muscles even harder.

    3A. Seated hamstring curl

    Sets 4 Reps 10 Rest 30sec


    • Position yourself correctly with your legs straight and the padded bar against your lower leg.
    • Squeeze your hamstrings to bring your heels towards you, then return to the start.

    3B. Seated leg extension

    Sets 4 Reps 10 Rest 60sec


    • Position yourself correctly with your knees bent and the padded bar against your shins.
    • Raise your feet to straighten your legs, then squeeze your quads at the top.
    • Lower back to the start position slowly to increase the tension on the target muscles.
    • Superset 2

    This final superset comprises two high-rep moves to target and fatigue as many muscle fibres as possible so you end the session with your heart rate soaring. If you struggle to hit the rep target, lift lighter or finish each set with bodyweight reps.

    4A. Dumbbell lunge

    Sets 3 Reps 8 each side Rest 30sec


    • Stand tall, holding a dumbbell in each hand.
    • With your chest up and core braced, take a big step forwards with your left leg and lunge down until both knees are bent at 90°.
    • Push off your front foot to return to the start, then repeat with your right leg.
    • Alternate your leading leg with each rep.
