Trivia Question from Yesterday

This singer-songwriter, musician and artist was born Grace Barnett Wing. By what name is she better known?

       Grace Slick                                                      Source

Grace Barnett Slick (née Wing; born October 30, 1939) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, artist and former model, widely known as the first female diva in rock and roll history and a searing voice in the mid-1960's San Francisco psychedelic renaissance. Her iconic career spanned all or parts of four decades, most notably with the ground-breaking Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship and Starship bands. She started with The Great Society and also had stints as a solo performer.        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   Born Grace Barnett Wing and is a singer-songwriter, musician, and artist? There's only one Grace I can think of who fits that description.

Deborah wrote:
   Grace Barnett Wing is better known as Grace Slick, lead singer for the Jefferson Airplane. White Rabbit, anyone?

Marian said:
   Grace Slick

Lois Through The Looking Glass answered:
   My god, could Grace Slick sing! When I hear "White Rabbit" I alway think of "Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas". When I hear the next song, I think how fucking TIMELESS it is, and how painfully true is the fact that we as a civilization did indeed peak in 1969, and have been caught in the rip tide of atavism ever since. VOTE FOR BERNIE!

Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali responded:
   That's my friend Grace Slick…actually sat on a couple of panels with her back in the late 80's…one of those sobriety things…really a very funny broad…in a positive sense of way.

DJ Useo replied:
   Grace Slick, a great talent whose music I enjoy often. I own the cd box set of Jefferson Airplane. Great fun.
  Anyone else noticing how censored the presidential election coverage is? Amazing reveals from HRC's emails, plus much more.
  Yet, there's almost no coverage at all. Hitler would be proud, I think.

Hated Trump's Taj Mahal

Harper Lee

Harper Lee, one of America's most celebrated novelists who died in February, thought Donald Trump's infamous Taj Mahal casino was hell on Earth, a stash of her private correspondence revealed Monday.

The "To Kill a Mockingbird" author, whose masterpiece about racial injustice was read by millions, slammed the billionaire presidential hopeful's boardwalk resort in New Jersey in a letter to a friend in 1990.

"The worst punishment God can devise for this sinner is to make her spirit reside eternally at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City," Lee wrote in the missive, recovered along with several others from her New York apartment.

Lee, who was apparently entertaining visitors, stayed at the $1 billion gambling spot a few months after its April 1990 inauguration.

No Comment From The NRA

Republican Convention

The U.S. Secret Service will not allow people to carry guns into the July Republican National Convention in Cleveland, quashing the hopes of more than 45,000 people who have signed a petition saying attendees should be allowed to bring firearms.

The Secret Service said on Monday it has the authority to preclude guns from sites visited by the people it protects such as U.S. presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents.

A petition on called for firearms to be allowed into the Quicken Loans Arena during the convention in Ohio, a state that allows guns to be carried openly in public. It had drawn 45,811 supporters by Monday afternoon.

The arena's rules forbid firearms or other weapons, which the petition says is a "direct affront" to the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment right to bear arms. It called Cleveland one of the most dangerous U.S. cities.

The petition called for five actions to enable gun owners to carry their weapons into the venue. One of those recommendations was for Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-Gynotician), a Republican presidential candidate, to use his executive authority to override the arena's decision to be a "gun-free zone."

Caveman's Best Friends


The hunters searching for mammoth tusks were drawn to the steep riverbank by a deposit of ancient bones. To their astonishment, they discovered an Ice Age puppy's snout peeking out from the permafrost.

Five years later, a pair of puppies perfectly preserved in Russia's far northeast region of Yakutia and dating back 12,460 years has mobilised scientists across the world.

"To find a carnivorous mammal intact with skin, fur and internal organs -- this has never happened before in history," said Sergei Fyodorov, head of exhibitions at the Mammoth Museum of the North-Eastern Federal University in the regional capital of Yakutsk.

And the discovery could contribute to the lively scientific debate over the origin of domesticated dogs.

When the hunters stumbled on the first frozen pup in 2011, they alerted Fyodorov who immediately flew out to the remote Arctic tundra, about 4,700 kilometres (2,900 miles) from Moscow and only 130 kilometres from the Laptev Sea, which borders the Arctic Ocean.

Museum Returns Looted Statue


An American museum on Monday returned to Cambodia a 10th-century sandstone sculpture of the Hindu god Rama decades after it was looted from a jungle temple during the kingdom's civil war.

The 62-inch-tall torso, which was stolen in the 1970s from the Koh Ker temple site near the famed Angkor Wat complex, was handed over by the Denver Art Museum at a ceremony in Phnom Penh.

The statue -- still missing its head, arms and feet -- had been in the museum's possession since 1986, the Cambodian government said in a statement.

Cambodia was once home to the mighty Khmer Empire, a Hindu-Buddhist dynasty that built what were then some of the world's mightiest cities and temples, including the famous Angkor Wat complex.

But decades of French colonialism and civil war saw vast swathes of Cambodia's architectural and religious heritage looted and sold overseas.

Facing Charges

Katt Williams

Entertainer Katt Williams and a teenager have each been charged with disorderly conduct after fighting each other at an apartment complex, police in metro Atlanta said Monday.

Williams, 44, and Luke Wash, 17, were both charged in connection with the fight last week, Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said Monday. He added that Wash is also charged as an adult in the case.

A police report wasn't filed, but video footage and witness statements led authorities to press charges, according to Holbrook.

"It's my understanding that Wash is in custody at the jail and we have made contact with Williams' attorney and it is our hopes and our understanding that he will be turning himself in," Holbrook said.

USGS Revises Seismic Risk Map


Earthquakes caused by human activity fracking will now be included in the U.S. Geological Survey's seismic risk maps, the agency said on Monday after a sharp rise in temblors linked to wastewater disposal wells used by the oil and gas industry in Oklahoma.

The seismic risk maps are used by emergency management officials as well as the country's major engineering and design associations to guide how strong to construct buildings.

Some 7 million people in the Central and Eastern United States live or work in areas threatened by so-called induced seismicity, and in parts of these regions, the damage caused by earthquakes could be at parity with that seen in high-hazard regions of California, the USGS said.

Oklahoma is at the greatest risk for hazards associated with induced seismicity, the USGS said, followed by Kansas, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and Arkansas.

Oklahoma in 2015 experienced 907 magnitude-3.0 or greater earthquakes, compared with just two of similar size in 2009. In February, a 5.1-magnitude temblor shook the area around Fairview, Oklahoma - the third strongest recorded in the state.

China Says ...

Dalai Lama

Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama is "making a fool" of Tibetan Buddhism with suggestions he may not reincarnate, or reincarnate as something inappropriate, and the faithful are not buying it, a Chinese official wrote on Monday.

The comments came as early election results put the leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Lobsang Sangay, on course for a second term, part of a strategy to sustain a decades-old struggle for greater autonomy for its Chinese-ruled homeland.

The animosity between the two sides, and their rivalry for control over Tibetan Buddhism, is at the heart of the debate about reincarnation.

Tibetan Buddhism holds that the soul of a senior lama is reincarnated in the body of a child on his death.

China says the tradition must continue and its officially atheist Communist leaders have the right to approve the Dalai Lama's successor, as a right inherited from China's emperors.

Record Winter Low

Arctic Sea Ice

Arctic sea ice reached a record winter low this year - the latest mark in a season that has left scientists gape-mouthed in amazement.

"I've never seen such a warm, crazy winter in the Arctic," said an email from Mark Serreze, director of the U.S.-based National Snow and Ice Data Center. "The heat was relentless."

Serreze's group declared Monday that the maximum extent of sea ice before it begins its spring melt was 20,000 square kilometres less this winter than it has ever been since satellite monitoring began. The record had been set only last year.

Temperatures over the Arctic Ocean in December, January and February were 2 C to 6 C above average in nearly every region. Even the North Pole saw above-zero conditions.

The record comes after 10 straight months of all-time high global average temperatures. January and February were so warm they broke records for how much above average they were.

US Land Purchases


Saudi Arabia's largest dairy company will soon be unable to farm alfalfa in its own parched country to feed its 170,000 cows. So it's turning to an unlikely place to grow the water-chugging crop - the drought-stricken American Southwest.

Almarai Co. bought land in January that roughly doubled its holdings in California's Palo Verde Valley, an area that enjoys first dibs on water from the Colorado River. The company also acquired a large tract near Vicksburg, Arizona, becoming a powerful economic force in a region that has fewer well-pumping restrictions than other parts of the state.

The purchases totaling about 14,000 acres enable the Saudis to take advantage of farm-friendly U.S. water laws. The acquisitions have also rekindled debate over whether a patchwork of regulations and court rulings in the West favors farmers too heavily, especially those who grow thirsty, low-profit crops such as alfalfa at a time when cities are urging people to take shorter showers, skip car washes and tear out grass lawns.

For decades, Saudi Arabia attempted to grow its own water-intensive crops for food rather than rely on farms abroad. But it reversed that policy about eight years ago to protect scarce supplies.

To further conserve water, the country has adopted bans on selected crops. This year, the kingdom will no longer produce wheat. In December, the government announced the country will stop growing green fodder, livestock feed derived from crops like alfalfa, over the next three years.




In Memory

Mother Angelica

Mother Mary Angelica, a folksy Roman Catholic nun who used a monastery garage to begin a television ministry that grew into a global religious media empire, has died. She was 92.

Known to millions of viewers simply as "Mother Angelica," the founder of the Eternal Word Television Network died Easter Sunday at the rural monastery where she lived about 45 miles north of Birmingham, according to EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw.

Mother Angelica had been in declining health since suffering a severe cerebral hemorrhage on Christmas Eve 2001. She never regained her full speaking ability and had other, less-severe strokes through the years.

Mother Angelica was born Rita Rizzo in Canton, Ohio, in 1923. She entered the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration monastery in Cleveland at age 21 and joined other nuns in moving South to open a new monastery in Alabama in 1962.

With only $200, the nun began broadcasting a religious talk show from a TV studio put together in the monastery garage in suburban Birmingham in 1981. That show grew into Eternal Word Television Network, which has long had the blessing of the Vatican.
