Children and Teenagers

• Wimbledon tennis champion Althea Gibson was not afraid of a fight. When she was a girl, she discovered her uncle lying drunk outside his apartment building. Standing around him was a group of boys, one of whom was going through his pockets. Althea yelled, “That’s my uncle!” She then helped him up the steps to the apartment building and safety. Unfortunately, the leader of the gang threw a screwdriver at her, hitting her hand. After Althea had gotten her uncle to his apartment, she went outside and chased the boy who had thrown the screwdriver at her. Eventually, she caught him, and a long, bloody fight ensued. Years afterward, residents in the neighborhood remembered that fight, which Althea called a draw.

• Christian writer Dale Hanson Bourke and Chase, her very young son, once went crabbing, and Ms. Bourke soon discovered that her son didn’t know that people went crabbing in order to eat the crabs, so she decided that they would simply show the crabs to other people, then release them back into the water. However, she must have said something that made Chase suspicious about crabbing, because he started asking her questions. “Mom, why did God make trees?” “To give us shade and wood.” “Why did God make chickens?” “To give us eggs and meat.” “Why did God make crabs?” She replied, “So we could have an adventure,” and her young son retained his innocence.

• Francis Hodgson Burnett, author of A Little Princess and The Secret Garden, used to spend a lot of time writing, and her two young sons complained that they didn’t see her enough. However, her youngest son, Vivian, suggested a way for her to make things even—write a book that could be read by little boys. Ms. Burnett responded by writing Little Lord Fauntleroy and based the title character on Vivian. (Vivian got his name because his mother had hoped to name a daughter Vivien. When she gave birth to a boy, however, she changed the spelling of the name to that of a male character in a then-popular work of fiction.)

• As a child, soccer superstar Julie Foudy continually practiced her skills. She used to kick the soccer ball against her family’s garage door—which eventually needed to be replaced. She also used to practice kicking the ball in the living room, keeping it low to hit a marble step at the base of the fireplace. Her mother kept an expensive glass vase at the top of the step, but Julie assured her mother that she wouldn’t break the vase. One day, she kicked the soccer ball too high and broke the vase. She says, “I got a good earful. My mom was pretty mad.”

• Comedian Carol Burnett has three children, and it seemed that when they were growing up the maximum number of children who could be good at one time was two. On a trip to a restaurant, it was the youngest daughter’s turn to be naughty. When it was time to order, the youngest daughter, Erin, told the waitress, “Just dessert, please.” Carol said, “No dinner, no dessert.” Erin replied, “Fine. I won’t eat.” Later, Erin wanted to get back on her mother’s good side, so she told her father, “Daddy, I love you. And, Daddy, I also love your wife.”

• As a youth at the college-preparatory Groton School in Massachusetts, Franklin Delano Roosevelt weighed only 100 pounds—too light to be an outstanding athlete. However, his drive to succeed led him to become the best at an athletic event known as the high kick. This was an odd event in which the athlete leaped high in the air and kicked a tin pan that hung from the ceiling of the gymnasium. To be the best at the event, Franklin practiced for hours, eventually kicking as high as 7 feet, 3 1/2 inches—two feet taller than himself.

• When ballet dancer Linda Maybarduk was 15 years old, she got a chance to meet her idol, Rudolf Nureyev, after one of his performances. Unfortunately, despite her wish to act like a sophisticated young lady when she met him, the moment was too much for her, and she started crying. Mr. Nureyev was very encouraging to young Linda, but it was her father who ended up having a 15-minute talk with the dance superstar. In adult life, Ms. Maybarduk danced with her idol in professional performances.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

One of the most widely covered songs in popular music, what 1956 hit song written by Chuck Berry, with notable versions by the Beatles and Electric Light Orchestra, is an imperative directed at a dead German?

       "Roll Over, Beethoven"                                                      Source

"Roll Over Beethoven" is a 1956 hit song written by Chuck Berry, originally released on Chess Records single, with "Drifting Heart" as the B-side. The lyrics of the song mention rock and roll and the desire for rhythm and blues to replace classical music. The title of the song is an imperative directed at the composer Ludwig van Beethoven to roll over out of the way and make room for the rock and roll music that Berry was promoting. The song has been covered by many other artists, including the Beatles and the Electric Light Orchestra. Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number 97 on its list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

"Roll Over Beethoven" is one of the most widely covered songs in popular music – "a staple of rock and roll bands" – with notable versions by Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beatles, Carl Perkins, and Electric Light Orchestra.

"Roll Over Beethoven" was a favourite of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison even before they chose "the Beatles" as their name, and they continued to perform it right into their American tours of 1964. Their version of "Roll Over Beethoven" was recorded on July 30, 1963, for their second British LP, With the Beatles, and features Harrison on vocals and guitar. In the United States, it was released April 10, 1964, as the opening track of The Beatles' Second Album, and on May 11, 1964, as the opening track of the second Capitol EP, Four by the Beatles. It was released by Capitol in Canada with "Please Mister Postman" as the B-side, reaching number 2 on the CHUM Charts. This release reached number 68 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number 30 on the Cash Box Singles chart.        Source

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


One-Off Recording

Bob Dylan

A one-off Bob Dylan record is expected to fetch up to £1m when it is auctioned at Christie's on Thursday.

The disc features a new version of the star's classic song Blowin' In The Wind, made in March 2021 with his long-time collaborator T Bone Burnett.

The one-off release also showcases a new type of record that combines some of the materials used in CDs and vinyl, and promises better sound quality and durability than vinyl.

Playable on any regular turntable, the new format is described as "the pinnacle of sound" by Burnett, who helped develop it.

Disputed Songs Pulled From Streaming Sites

Michael Jackson

Three Michael Jackson songs have been removed from streaming sites following longstanding claims that they are sung by someone else, Sony and the late singer's estate said Wednesday.

"Breaking News," "Monster" and "Keep Your Head Up" appear on the 2010 compilation album "Michael," released a year after Jackson's death from a drug-induced cardiac arrest.

Some fans have long argued that the vocals on the tracks actually belong to an American session singer by the name of Jason Malachi, claims Sony has denied.

The record company and Jackson's estate said, however, that they had decided to remove the songs "as the simplest and best way to move beyond the conversation associated with these tracks once and for all."

American Kennel Club Adds

Bracco Italiano

U.S. dog lovers, say “benvenuto” to the bracco Italiano.

The ancient Italian bird-hunting dog is the 200th member of the American Kennel Club’s roster of recognized breeds, the organization announced Wednesday. That means the handsome, powerful but amiable pointers can now go for best in show at many U.S. dog shows, including the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club event next year.

The bracco (pronounced BRAH’-koh) goes back more than two millennia in Europe but wasn’t brought to the U.S. until the mid-1990s, according to the AKC. It’s sometimes called the Italian pointer or Italian pointing dog.

The ideal bracco should be “tough and adapted to all types of hunting, reliable, docile and intelligent,” while also friendly and neither shy nor aggressive, according to the AKC’s standard for the medium-to-large breed.

The dogs — the proper plural is “bracchi Italiani” — have a deep bark and readily deploy it on spotting backyard wildlife, so “they may not be the right dog for everybody,” she noted.

Digby's Hullabaloo


What Conflict Of Interest?


At an evangelical victory party in front of the Supreme Court to celebrate the downfall of Roe v. Wade last week, a prominent Capitol Hill religious leader was caught on a hot mic making a bombshell claim: that she prays with sitting justices inside the high court. “We’re the only people who do that,” Peggy Nienaber said.

This disclosure was a serious matter on its own terms, but it also suggested a major conflict of interest. Nienaber’s ministry’s umbrella organization, Liberty Counsel, frequently brings lawsuits before the Supreme Court. In fact, the conservative majority in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, which ended nearly 50 years of federal abortion rights, cited an amicus brief authored by Liberty Counsel in its ruling.

In other words: Sitting Supreme Court justices have prayed together with evangelical leaders whose bosses were bringing cases and arguments before the high court.

Nienaber is Liberty Counsel’s executive director of DC Ministry, as well as the vice president of Faith & Liberty, whose ministry offices sit directly behind the Supreme Court. She spoke to a livestreamer who goes by Connie IRL, seemingly unaware she was being recorded. “You actually pray with the Supreme Court justices?” the livestreamer asked. “I do,” Nienaber said. “They will pray with us, those that like us to pray with them.” She did not specify which justices prayed with her, but added with a chortle, “Some of them don’t!” The livestreamer then asked if Nienaber ministered to the justices in their homes or at her office. Neither, she said. “We actually go in there.”

Nienaber intended her comments, broadcast on YouTube, to be “totally off the record,” she says in the clip. That’s likely because such an arrangement presents a problem for the Orlando-based Liberty Counsel, which not only weighed in on the Dobbs case as a friend of the court, but also litigated and won a 9-0 Supreme Court victory this May in a case centered on the public display of a religious flag.




Torn Down After Bombing

Georgia Guidestones

A rural Georgia monument that some conservative Christians criticized as satanic and others dubbed “America’s Stonehenge” was demolished Wednesday after a predawn bombing turned one of its four granite panels into rubble.

The Georgia Guidestones monument near Elberton was damaged by an explosive device, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said, and later knocked down “for safety reasons,” leaving a pile of rubble in a picture that investigators published.

Surveillance footage showed a sharp explosion blowing one panel to rubble just after 4 a.m. Investigators also released video of a silver sedan leaving the monument.

The enigmatic roadside attraction was built in 1980 from local granite, commissioned by an unknown person or group under the pseudonym R.C. Christian.

The 16-foot-high (5-meter-high) panels bore a 10-part message in eight different languages with guidance for living in an “age of reason.” One part called for keeping world population at 500 million or below, while another calls to “guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.”

In 2016, deep down within a Canadian mine researchers made an ancient discovery: the world's oldest pool of water. At a depth of roughly 3 kilometers (1.8 miles), the water dates to an impressive 2 billion years old.

The discovery pushed back the date for the oldest known water by at least 500 million years. The previous record was held by water found in the same mine by the same team back in 2013, and came from a depth of around 2.5 kilometers. The mine is in fact the deepest basal metal mine in the world, as the search for copper, zinc, and silver is taking the miners deeper and deeper into the Earth’s crust.

When the miners dug deeper, the researchers took the opportunity to explore further into the mine. They analyzed the water discovered by studying the gases trapped inside. Gases like helium and xenon can get trapped in water stuck in rock cracks, and measuring these can tell how old the water is.

What is more, the vast age of the water is not the only important discovery. When the researchers analyzed the liquid, they found traces of life within it. While they are yet to find actual living bacteria, what they did discover was, in effect, the fingerprint of life. From this, they are able to infer that there has been some form of microbiology living within the water and over a very long time period.




Best They've Been In Years

Noctilucent Clouds

Noctilucent, or “night-shining”, clouds are the rarest type of cloud and only occur after the Sun has dipped below the horizon or before it rises. Each summer, for just a couple of months, they make an appearance in the Northern Hemisphere sky, but this year, they are the most vibrant in 15 years so get outside and look up.

Noctilucent clouds appear in the sky as long, thin wisps that seem to shimmer and glow blue. They form in the upper part of Earth’s atmosphere, tens of kilometers above weather clouds in the mesosphere. Too thin to be seen in daylight, as the Sun drops below the horizon, the light continues to be reflected by the high-altitude clouds, illuminating them against the darkening sky.

They are seen between June and August in the Northern Hemisphere, usually above the poles, but a recent flurry of lovely images shared online shows they are visible across North America, Canada, and Europe right now. In fact, according to the Washington Post, they are the best seen in 15 years, with views ranging from Oregon to Denmark and the UK in the last week.

Considered by scientists to be the rarest, driest, and highest clouds, the clouds form when water vapor gathers on specks of meteorite dust in the mesosphere and freezes, forming ice crystals. They are so high in the atmosphere that they can continue to reflect the Sun's light long after it has set.

A 2018 study concluded that the increased visibility of noctilucent clouds was down to humanity's impact on the climate. The extraction and burning of fossil fuels has released greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, including methane, which at high altitudes produces water vapor. Since 1871, the report found, there had been a 40 percent increase in water vapor 80 kilometers (50 miles) high at mid-northern latitude, meaning that there is now a good chance of seeing the clouds several times each summer.
