Today’s Holiday:
St. Joseph’s Eve

In Valencia, Spain, the feast of the foster-father of Jesus is a week-long festival called Fallas de San Jose (Bonfires of St. Joseph). On St. Joseph’s Eve, March 18, fallas—huge floats of intricate scenes made of wood and papier-mâché, satirizing everything from the high cost of living to political personalities—parade through the streets. At midnight on March 19, the celebration ends with the spectacular ceremony known as the crema, when all the fallas are set on fire. The festival is said to reflect the happy and satirical nature of the Valencians. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:
UK Recognizes British Sign Language as Official Language (2003)

Making use of space and involving movement of the hands, body, face, and head, British Sign Language (BSL) is the preferred language of deaf people in the UK and those who communicate with them, such as relatives and interpreters. BSL has regional and local dialects, and some signs go in and out of fashion or evolve over time, just like spoken words. Although English is the predominant spoken language in both the UK and US, BSL differs from American Sign Language in what ways?

Article of the Day: Wardenclyffe Tower

Article of the Day:
Wardenclyffe Tower

The Wardenclyffe Tower was an early telecommunications aerial tower intended for commercial wireless transatlantic telephony and broadcasting and to demonstrate the transmission of power without interconnecting wires. Designed by inventor Nikola Tesla and funded by financier J.P. Morgan and others, the tower was planned to be built in Long Island, New York. Construction began in 1901, but as funds dwindled, work was halted. Why did the US government have the incomplete facility blown up in 1917?

  1. 2 of 4
    This is how it works
    It feels a little worse
    Than when we drove our hearse
    Right through that screaming crowd
    While laughing up a storm
    Until we were just bone
    Until it got so warm
    That none of us could sleep
    And all the Styrofoam
    Began to melt away
    We tried to find some worms
    To aid in the decay
    But none of them were home
    Inside their catacomb
    A million ancient bees
    Began to sting our knees
    While we were on our knees
    Praying that disease
    Would leave the ones we love
    And never come again

    On the radio
    We heard November Rain
    That solo’s really long
    But it’s a pretty song
    We listened to it twice
    ‘Cause the DJ was asleep

    This is how it works
    You’re young until you’re not
    You love until you don’t
    You try until you can’t
    You laugh until you cry
    You cry until you laugh
    And everyone must breathe
    Until their dying breath

    No, this is how it works
    You peer inside yourself
    You take the things you like
    And try to love the things you took
    And then you take that love you made
    And stick it into some
    Someone else’s heart
    Pumping someone else’s blood
    And walking arm in arm
    You hope it don’t get harmed
    But even if it does
    You’ll just do it all again

    And on the radio
    You hear November Rain
    That solo’s awful long
    But it’s a good refrain
    You listen to it twice
    ‘Cause the DJ is asleep
    On the radio
    (Oh, oh, oh)
    On the radio
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio

  1. 2 of 5
    Something always brings me back to you
    It never takes too long
    No matter what I say or do
    I’ll still feel you here ’till the moment I’m gone

    You hold me without touch
    You keep me without chains
    I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love
    And not feel your reign

    Set me free, leave me be
    I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity
    Here I am, and I stand
    So tall, just the way I’m supposed to be
    But you’re on to me and all over me

    Oh, you loved me ’cause I’m fragile
    When I thought that I was strong
    But you touch me for a little while
    And all my fragile strength is gone

    Set me free, leave me be
    I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity
    Here I am, and I stand
    So tall, just the way I’m supposed to be
    But you’re on to me and all over me

    I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
    That you’re everything I think I need here on the ground
    But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go
    The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down
    You’re keeping me down, eh ooh
    You’re on to me, on to me, and all over

    Something always brings me back to you
    It never takes too long
