Henry Ford (1863 - 1947)

The American industrialist and founder of the Ford Motor Company also believed in reincarnation. Ford is quoted as saying to The San Francisco Examiner in 1928, “I adopted the theory of Reincarnation when I was twenty six. Religion offered nothing to the point. Even work could not give me complete satisfaction. Work is futile if we cannot utilize the experience we collect in one life in the next. When I discovered Reincarnation it was as if I had found a universal plan I realized that there was a chance to work out my ideas. Time was no longer limited. I was no longer a slave to the hands of the clock. Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives. Some are older souls than others, and so they know more. The discovery of Reincarnation put my mind at ease. If you preserve a record of this conversation, write it so that it puts mens minds at ease. I would like to communicate to others the calmness that the long view of life gives to us.”

Some favelas in Brazil, most notably in Rio de Janeiro, are controlled by gangs with automatic weapons.[17][18] Police and investigative reporters have been tortured and killed there, such as Tim Lopes in 2002.Attempts at clearing up such areas have led to security crises in Rio as well as in São Paulo.

I "should" watch that movie because I tend to consider "Blade Runner" (1982) a cult movie (like many people of my generation do).
After reading some details about "Blade Runner 2049" and after watching the trailer, I'm afraid I'll be too busy to watch it when it gets released (early October).

Orionid Meteor Shower 2017: When, Where & How to See It

One of the year's best sky shows will peak between Oct. 20 and 22, when the Orionid meteor shower reaches its best viewing. The meteors that streak across the sky are some of the fastest and brightest among meteor showers, because the Earth is hitting a stream of particles almost head on.

The particles come from Comet 1P/Halley, better known as Halley’s Comet. This famous comet swings by Earth every 75 to 76 years, and as the icy comet makes its way around the sun, it leaves behind a trail of comet crumbs. At certain times of the year, Earth's orbit around the sun crosses paths with the debris.

"You can see pieces of Halley's Comet during the Eta Aquarids [in May] and the Orionid meteor shower [in October and November]," NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke said.

The Orionids are named after the direction from which they appear to radiate, which is near the constellation Orion (The Hunter). In October, Orion is best visible around 2 a.m. Skywatchers in 2017 will not have moonlight to contend with, as the first-quarter moon will have set long before the meteors put on their best show. If you miss the peak, the show is also visible between Oct. 15 and 29, as long as the moon isn't washing the meteors out.

In the '80s and '90s, Matthew Broderick was considered an A-list actor. In 1997 he married Sarah Jessica Parker, who had starred in her fair share of movies, but wasn't a household name. In 1998 she landed the role of Carrie in "Sex and the City" and quickly became the more famous member in the Parker-Broderick household.

The aurochs, also urus, ure (Bos primigenius), is an extinct species of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia, and North Africa. It is the ancestor of domestic cattle. The species survived in Europe until the last recorded aurochs died in the Jaktorów Forest, Poland, in 1627.

The name of the village may have come from the Scottish Gaelic innis, meaning an island, or, as in this context, a piece of terra firma in a marsh.
