November 11, Slender Man, Bob Dylan and the Beatles and my first excerpt .

November 11 and Remembrance Day.

I always think about World War Two because it liberated Jews from concentration camps and kept Germany from indulging in a ubiquitous campaign that would have destroyed freedom and democracy. Tens of thousands civilians and soldiers died to protected us from the wrath of the Fuhrer. It also reminds me how easily the average population is manipulated and directed , like puppets, to accept ideology set up by our leaders. Germany was the ultimate example but we are also struggling to protect our civil liberties from those leaders who would tell us that ends justifies the means when it comes to protecting our democracy. It seems we believe our leaders when they state that the only way to protect democracy is to whittle it down. On this Remembrance Day let us not just remember the soldiers but also why they are fighting. The fought for FREEDOM.

I watched an episode on Law and Order SVU that mirrored a real day situation where two girls conspired to kill another based on a graphic novel. Slender Man walks again.

In the history of pop and rock , the Beatles and the Stones turned down a chance to be on a Dylan record.

For Science, My First excerpt from Congratulations you are a Science Nerd.

“. When and how was the earth created?

The earth is the third planet from the sun, and at this point the only planet that we are aware of that has life. The earth is about the same age as the sun which is 4.7 billion years old. Earth is the only planet to have liquid water on its surface. In March 2014, it was discovered that Jupiter appears to have water vapor in the atmosphere. “The planet, named tau Boo b, orbits the nearby star tau Boötis and belongs to a class of exotic planets called “hot Jupiter’s” that are not found in our solar system. A hot Jupiter is a massive extra solar (outside our Solar system) planet that orbits very close to its parent star. Unlike our Jupiter, which is fairly cold and has an orbital period of about 12 years, tau Boo b orbits its star every 3.3 days and is heated to extreme temperatures by its proximity to the star.”1 There is no evidence that there is water on the surface of the planet but somewhere, in the history, there is a great possibility that there was water on the planet. We think Mars may have had water 3 to 4 billion years ago. Late in January 2013, evidence was found that showed that there may have been a substantial amount of water on Mars. “Strong geological evidence that Mars once had liquid water on its surface has been revealed this week. Scientists analyzing data sent back from NASA and ESA Mars orbiters say that the McLoughlin Crater, caused by a meteor impact millions of years ago, was probably once filled with water.”


Mars seems to have 2 percent water, by weight, as found by the Mars Rover Curiosity in September, 2013. Liquid water covers 71% of the surface of the earth. The atmosphere is 77% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, with traces of other gases. The tilting of the earth towards the sun gives us the seasons. White clouds of water vapor hide much of the Earth” surface. The moon is our natural satellite with no atmosphere but many discerning features like craters, ridges, mountain ranges and[…]”
