Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
“Fools, ” said I, “You do not know
Silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells, of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls”
And whispered in the sounds of silence
Give it nice and loud for Mister Myles Kennedy
Songwriters: Paul Simon

Today’s Holiday: Shichi-Go-San

Today’s Holiday:

Shichi-Go-San is an ancient Japanese celebration that marks the special ages of seven, five, and three. It has long been traditional for families to take girls aged seven, boys of five, and all three-year-olds to the neighborhood Shinto shrine. There they are purified, and the priest prays for their healthy growth. Afterwards, there are often parties for the children, and they are given a special pink hard candy, called “thousand-year candy,” to symbolize hopes for a long life. Because Nov. 15 is not a legal holiday, families now observe the ceremony on the Sunday nearest that date. More…:

Today’s Birthday: John I “the Posthumous” of France (1316)

Today’s Birthday:
John I “the Posthumous” of France (1316)

For the five days he lived, John I, son of Louis X, was king of France. He thus had the shortest reign of any recognized French king. Because his uncle, Philip V, succeeded him, rumors swirled that Philip had caused John’s death. Another story claimed that a dying child had been substituted for John, who was then raised in Siena. In the mid-1300s, a Sienese man named Giannino di Guccio began claiming that he was John I and traveled through Europe seeking recognition. What happened to him? More…:

Article of the Day:
The Knight

In medieval Europe, incessant private warfare brought about a permanent military class, and the institution of knighthood was well established by the 10th century. After 1100, military tenure was generally subject to the law of primogeniture, which resulted in a class of landless knights, who formed the great military orders of knighthood at the time of the Crusades, including the Knights Templars and the Knights Hospitalers. In modern Britain, women who are knighted are addressed as what? More…

Activitatea lui Dragnea, BLOCATĂ. Mutarea PNL care schimbă regulile jocului | Stiri Diaspora

Raluca Turcan, liderul deputaţilor PNL, a declarat că, începând de luni, Liviu Dragnea nu va mai putea conduce nicio şedinţă a Camerei Deputaţilor şi nicio şedinţă a Biroului permanent (conducerea Camerei), întrucât de fiecare dată pe ordinea de ZI se va afla solicitarea PNL de revocare a sa din funcţie.

“Preşedintele Camerei Deputaţilor, Liviu Dragnea, recidivează. Astăzi s-a aflat din nou în afara Regulamentului, în afara legii. Mai exact, a încălcat articolul 27, alineatul 4, prin faptul că a propus spre respingere o solicitare a PNL de includere pe ordinea de zi a propunerii de revocare a preşedintelui Camerei. Regulamentul spune foarte limpede, niciunul dintre membrii Biroului permanent nu poate prezida şedinţa prin care se solicită revocarea din funcţia pe care o deţine. Astăzi nu doar că Liviu Dragnea s-a aflat într-un grav conflict de interese, pe care, de altfel, prin legea penală îl dezincriminează şi îl striveşte ori de câte ori are ocazia, însă începând cu ziua de astăzi Liviu Dragnea nu va mai putea conduce nicio şedinţă a Camerei Deputaţilor şi nicio şedinţă de conducere a Biroului permanent, întrucât solicitarea PNL de revocare a preşedintelui Camerei Deputaţilor se va afla în fiecare zi de şedinţă a Camerei pe ordinea de zi. Cu alte cuvinte, începând de astăzi, 12 noiembrie, Liviu Dragnea este demis de facto din fruntea Camerei Deputaţilor, întrucât nu ar mai putea să ocupe această funcţie pentru că solicitarea de revocare a lui din funcţie se va afla de fiecare dată pe ordinea de zi”, a spus Turcan la Palatul Parlamentului, potrivit Agerpres.

Ea a adăugat că deputaţii liberali au iniţiat un proiect de modificare a Regulamentului prin care revocarea preşedintelui Camerei Deputaţilor se poate face şi la propunerea unei treimi din numărul deputaţilor, dar proiectul nu a fost încă dezbătut în Comisia pentru regulament.

Today’s Holiday: Plebeian Games

Today’s Holiday:
Plebeian Games

The Roman leader Flaminius is thought to have instituted the Plebeian Games in 220 BCE. They originally may have been held in the Circus Flaminius, which he built. Later, they may have moved to the Circus Maximus, a huge open arena between the Palatine and Aventine hills. The Games were dedicated to Jupiter, one of whose feast days was November 13, and included horse and chariot races and contests that involved running, boxing and wrestling. The first nine days of the festival (November 4-12) were devoted to theatrical performances. More…:

Sir Frederick Grant Banting (1891)

Banting was a Canadian physician who, with Scottish physiologist John Macleod, won a 1923 Nobel Prize for the discovery of the hormone insulin. Banting and his assistant Charles Best experimented on diabetic dogs, demonstrating that insulin lowered their blood sugar. Insulin was proven effective on humans within months of the first experiments with dogs. In acknowledgment of Best’s work, Banting gave him a share of his portion of the Nobel Prize.

This Day in History:
Day of the Colombian Woman (1967)

Not much is definitively known about Policarpa Salavarrieta’s early years. Even her name is subject to conjecture. What is undisputed—and secured her a place in the annals of Colombian history and, in 1967, a day commemorating her heroism—is that she sacrificed her life trying to secure Colombia’s independence; she was executed on November 14, 1817, for her activities on behalf of the revolution. Aside from the day of remembrance, what other honors has the Colombian government accorded her? More…:

When you’re weary
And haunted
And your life is not what you wanted
When you’re trying so hard to find it

When the lies speak the loudest
When your friends are starting to leave
When you’re broken by people like me

I hurt too, I hurt too

When an ocean sits right between us
There is no sign that we’ll ever cross
You should know now that I feel the loss

I hurt too, I hurt too

Even though you are drowning in valley’s of echoes
I believe there is peace in those hills up ahead
You will climb ‘til you find places you’ll never let go
And I will also be here praying just like I said

I hurt too, I hurt too

Waited a hundred years to see your face
And I would wait a hundred more
If only to be near you
To have you and to hear you
Isn’t that what time is for?

I sailed a thousand ships in search of you
Traveled to distant land
I dove for sunken gold
I took what I could hold

But you’re still the greatest treasure I’ve held in my hands

My love, the reason I survive
Trust we’ll be together soon
Should our fire turn to dark
Take my heart with you

A tattered photograph my pocket holds
I keep you secretly
I studied every line
You’re etched upon my mind
For not a million soldiers could take you from me

My love, the reason I survive
Trust we’ll be together soon
Should our fire turn to dark
Take my heart with you

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee
If I, if I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you
For like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “you must not ask for so much”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, “hey, why not ask for more?”
Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

Today’s Birthday:
Jeanne Mance (1606)

Mance was a member of a French association that planned a utopian colony at Montreal. With the support of the French queen, Anne of Austria, she sailed with the first settlers in 1641. Mance, who had cared for victims of the Thirty Years War and the plague while in France, opened Montreal’s first hospital, the Hôtel-Dieu, in 1644. In 1650, she visited France and returned with a large donation meant to fund the hospital. Rather than use it for its intended purpose, Mance did what with the money? More…:

The Royal Air Force Sinks German Battleship Tirpitz (1944)

The German Tirpitz, sister ship of the similarly ill-fated Bismarck, was the largest battleship ever built in Europe. Though she was sent to waters around German-occupied Norway and never really saw action in World War II, her mere presence threatened Allied convoys and tied up their naval resources. The Allies therefore launched numerous attacks on the Tirpitz in an effort to destroy her. What was the final Allied operation called? More…:

The Midnight Sun

The term “midnight sun” refers to the phenomena of 24 consecutive hours of sunlight north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle. It occurs around the summer solstice—June 21 in the north and December 22 in the south. The odds of encountering night sunshine increase near either pole. Though beautiful, the midnight sun poses special challenges to people living in these areas, as it disrupts sleep schedules and religious rites based around the setting sun. What is “polar night”?

Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don’t care?

And it’s only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
Breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?
Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
You’re whole life waiting on the ring to prove you’re not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?
It’s only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table
The walk before the run
The breath before the kiss
And the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?
La la la la la la la la
There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee,
Calling me sugar
You called me sugar
Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight?

The Great Blue Norther (1911)

The central US is no stranger to sudden changes in weather, but the temperature fluctuations and weather phenomena that struck on November 11, 1911, were about as unusual as it gets. On that day, many cities experienced record high temperatures before the mercury plummeted to record lows. Springfield, Missouri, for example, was a balmy 80°F (27°C) before the cold front passing through the region brought it down to a frigid 13°F (-11°C). What else did the front bring with it? More…:

Used by the Soviet Red Army during the Winter War and World War II, the aerosan is a type of propeller-powered snowmobile that runs on skis. First developed early in the 20th century, aerosans were valued for their high mobility in deep snow and on frozen water bodies and came to be used for a number of functions, including communications, mail deliveries, medical aid, and border patrolling in northern Russia.
