Patrick Henry Prominent figure American Revolution - Videos

United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions
which will destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.

I know not what course others may take,
but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.

John F. Kennedy 35th President of the U.S. - Videos

If we cannot now end our differences,
we cannot make the world safe from violence.

Social Unrest and Violence

George Floyd protests spread nationwide

George Floyd protests spread nationwide. The death of an unarmed black man at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer has sparked protests in a number of major US cities. Four Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd's death have been fired - but Floyd's family say they want murder charges against them.

Trump tweets threat that 'looting' will lead to 'shooting'
Twitter put a warning label on it.

Trump signs executive order targeting Twitter after fact-checking row

Victims of online harassment worry about resurgence after Trump's executive order

Congress has protected Twitter, Facebook and other platforms, and the president's action can't do away with that

Trump is doing battle with Twitter who are fact checking his lies and posting the results. How amazing would it be if he shut Twitter down and stopped tweeting - but he won't. He feeds off the rush of the attention and is inept at public speaking. I'm paying little attention to him as his mental health appears to decline - but I thought this story is note worthy. As to Twitter - it's the destructive side of this algorithm that makes me want to delete all social media. I know it serves a purpose and can be very helpful at times but it seems - in this crazy world we call our reality - the dysfunctional aspects - mirroring Trump - still remain in control.

May 29, 2020 - Manhattanhenge

Manhattanhenge - sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice - is an event during which the setting sun is aligned with the east-west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan in New York City. This occurs twice a year, on dates evenly spaced around the summer solstice. The second alignment for 2020 occurs on July 12.

It's all in the programmed codes

Stories about COVID-19 flood the networks and apparently will continue on for sometime with or without restrictions. In my wake-up dream I saw families spending time together who never have the opportunity based on their careers, educational situations, and other experiences that add to the distancing we experience in life in general. The thought that entered my mind was: "Soul groups unite in end times - a main reason the simulation put COVID-19 into play."

Looking for work?

In the absence of a federal plan, some city and state health departments are already seeking to fill thousands of these positions. Experts estimate that between 100,000 and 300,000 contact tracers - who can earn up to $65,000 per year - will be needed nationwide based on state populations and projected COVID-19 infection rates. Most people are working remotely for now. Video: Lost your job? Consider becoming a "contact tracer"


May 28-30, 2020 celebrates Shavuot marking the day the Torah was given to Moses at Mount Sinai. Scrolls and torahs represent books and stories in the journey of humanity. The story of Moses, always takes us to the possibility of extraterrestrial intervention in his life here.

Space-X Reboot

As you know stormy weather forced SpaceX to postpone yesterday's launch. As millions watched around the world it was a big disappointment - a win being something the world really needs now. The next window of opportunity is Saturday at 3:22 PM EDT though there is only a 30% chance of good weather. Does the future - rest in space or rest in peace?

Cosmic 'Ring of Fire'

I blog a lot about the Pacific Plate breaking up - causing the acceleration of earthquake activity including the North American Plate, affecting other tectonic plates (the Indian Ocean Plate breaking in two), the largest shield volcano coming up in Hawaii, the occasional tsunami, and more in the 'Pacific Ring of Fire' .

Now we find a 'Cosmic Ring of Fire' - a galaxy made up of a flat ring of stars, with a hole in the middle where astronomers believe another blob of stars punched through. Galaxies like this, known as "collisional ring galaxies," turn up infrequently in the modern universe. But this is the first time astronomers have seen one so old and far away; at 11 billion light-years from our planet, its ancient light is only just reaching Earth.
