Posted: Thursday, June 6, 2019 10:06:23 PM
Dancing Dancing The people of Lanark, Scotland, dedicate an entire week to inspecting and celebrating the boundary stones that enclose the territory gifted to them by King David I of Scotland in the 12th century. This event, known as the Lanimers, features public decorations, a parade of civic officials, marching bands, and a series of tableaux. The procession passes by each of the boundary stones—the days' activities close with the town clerk's pronouncement that the boundaries remain in good condition, and a 900-year-old bell rings in celebration.

Denmark Becomes a Constitutional Monarchy (1849)
After a flowering of literature and philosophy in the early 19th century, plans for a liberal, centralized constitution led Danish King Frederick VII to become involved in a war with Prussia over the status of the duchy of Schleswig-Holstein. Denmark was defeated and a new constitution was adopted, ending the absolute monarchy, securing civil rights for citizens, and establishing a bicameral parliament and wide suffrage. How many times has the constitution been rewritten since 1849?

Think Valerie Solanas. She found herself helpless and exploited. The medical condition characterised as schizophrenia served her well. She spend only 3 years in prison. Nevertheless, the medical report written by her examining psychologists/psychistrists team certainly lacks in information indicating reliability. What is 100% sure is the demise of Andy Warhol in the next year.
Who benefited from declaring psychiatric condition on the killer? Not talking Not talking

Farhud Begins (1941)
During the Farhud, the pogrom carried out against the Jewish population of Baghdad after the fall of the short-lived pro-Nazi government of Rashid Ali, rioters killed about 200 Jews and injured hundreds more. It took place during the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, and, according to some, marked a turning point for Iraq's 150,000 Jews, who were thereafter targeted for persecution. Jews had lived in Iraq since about 600 BCE, but by 1951, 80% had left.

I can see some aftermath as a big wave of deaths without reason. Why, when, what .. . to, where ... from, Whom ... ?, and so on. So yet, they do not stop with that yet.

Often used to symbolize Ireland, Deirdre is a beautiful heroine of Irish legend. At her birth, a druid prophesied that kings and lords would go to war over her beauty. Rather than kill her outright, King Conchobar, enticed by the description of her future beauty, ordered that she be raised in seclusion until she was old enough for him to marry. However, she fell in love and fled with her lover to Scotland. After a long idyllic stay there, Conchobar lured them back to Ireland.

- Principles have no real force except when one is well-fed.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Indeed, it is well-fed depends on its social status. Mathematically speaking this has been disproportional. The Principles don't go back to moral. Bad fed has principles and well fed has principles too.

The Giant Impact Hypothesis

The giant impact hypothesis—the favored scientific hypothesis for the formation of the Moon—proposes that the Moon was created from the debris of a collision between a young Earth and a Mars-sized celestial body. Evidence for the hypothesis includes Moon samples indicating that its surface was once molten, the Moon's apparently relatively small iron core and lower density than that of Earth, and evidence of similar collisions in other solar systems. What evidence is inconsistent with the theory?

First of all, this is my first reading about the formation of the moon. Although, this had been suspected, imagined. But, I liked lots of details about it. See, Think the little reference with a Greek goddess called Theia can open another reference with Saint George in the Catholicism.Pray
