April 12, , Royal Astronomical Society Dark matter filaments bridge the space between galaxies in this false colour map. The locations of bright galaxies are shown by the white regions and the presence of a dark matter filament bridging the galaxies is shown in red. The scientists publish their work in a new paper in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The composite image, which combines a number of individual images, confirms predictions that galaxies across the universe are tied together through a cosmic web connected by dark matter that has until now remained unobservable.
Dark matter, a mysterious substance that comprises around 25 per cent of the universe, doesn’t shine, absorb or reflect light, which has traditionally made it largely undetectable, except through gravity. The effect was measured in images from a multi-year sky survey at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. They combined lensing images from more than 23, galaxy pairs located 4. Results show the dark matter filament bridge is strongest between systems less than 40 million light years apart.
She-who-must-be-obeyed does not fully share my interest in the subject. An explanation of the big picture is also likely to be useful to many of my readers and their spouses, who do not share an enduring interest in geopolitics either. That is the purpose of this article.

BY Chris Higgins December 22, Epistolary history is full of open letters, those that are written with the intent that they’ll be read by a wide audience. Here we’ve collected six of the best or at least, most influential open letters of all time. Letter from Birmingham Jail Writer: Martin Luther King, Jr. Running to eleven pages, King’s letter was a response to the Statement by Alabama Clergymen in which prominent Alabama clergy including a bunch of Bishops and a Rabbi called for demonstrations against segregation to stop, and for the issue to be resolved in the courts.
I am in Birmingham because injustice is here. Just as the prophets of the eighth century B. Like Paul, I must constantly respond to the Macedonian call for aid. Moreover, I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states.

The advertising claims, for example, that are made by Blackmores that they relieve stress and provide energy are simply false.
Headsman 9 Comments On this date in , legendary British spy — and subsequent James Bond inspiration — Sidney Reilly was shot in a forest outside Moscow for his efforts to overthrow the Soviet government. Ace of Spies written by [ the son of ] his onetime cloak-and-dagger collaborator Robin Bruce Lockhart — who was himself a close friend of Bond author Ian Fleming.
However, even at the word of less sensational biographers — such as Andrew Cook — Reilly lived a life almost too extraordinary for belief. A Jewish child of tsarist Russia born in what is now the Ukraine, Reilly claimed to have escaped Odessa by faking his death and hopping a ship bound for Brazil. He arrived in Port Arthur, Russia, shortly before the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War and may have provided the Japanese fleet intelligence enabling it to navigate the mined harbor — in addition to a copious side business in war profiteering.
He may also have had a hand in capturing British oil concessions in Persia and reconnoitering behind German lines during World War I. Like his fictional heir , he gambled often and left a string of lovers and mistresses in his wake. His true allegiances, and the extent to which his exploits were inflated or outright fabricated, are debated to this day.
The adventures that brought both death and fame were his machinations to overthrow the Bolshevik government in the fraught early months after Lenin took power. Notwithstanding the sentence, which had been ruthlessly visited on his less-fortunate conspirators, Reilly was lured back to the USSR in by the Soviet counterintelligence project Operation Trust. Intending to meet anti-Bolshevik agitators, he was instead arrested at the border and tortured at the infamous Lubyanka Prison , where he kept notes on cigarette papers about enemy interrogation techniques for the eventuality of an escape or release that never came.
Just as his father had done 70 years earlier, Marcus Blackmore was working the corridors of power to passionately argue the case for natural medicine. And being a consummate salesman, he made sure a small bottle of “pollie pills” – his “Executive B Stress” brand – was placed in front of everyone at the meeting. Although Blackmore only hints at it, and Tony Abbott’s office declined to respond to inquiries, it is understood that Australia’s health-conscious prime minister is a regular consumer of Blackmores products, as is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Bronwyn Bishop.
Both are friends of Blackmore’s, but the political connections don’t end there. On a visit to federal parliament several years ago, Blackmore – the founder of the National Nutritional Association of Australia now the Complementary Medicine Association – bumped into then NT Country Liberal Party senator and parliamentary secretary for health Grant Tambling. Blackmore had only been in the building a few minutes when politicians from both sides began glad-handing him.

In English, the term Hispano-Roman is sometimes used. A number of these men, such as Trajan, Hadrian and others, were in fact descended from Roman colonial families. Hispano-Roman is used to refer to the culture and people of Hispania. Spaniard is used to refer to the people of Spain. Hispania was the Roman name for the whole territory of the Iberian Peninsula.
Initially, this territory was divided into two provinces: Hispania Citerior and Hispania Ulterior. This division of Hispania explains the usage of the singular and plural forms Spain, and The Spains used to refer to the peninsula and its kingdoms in the Middle Ages. In the Council of Constance , the four kingdoms shared one vote. The word Lusitanian , relates to Lusitania or Portugal, also in reference to the Lusitanians , possibly one of the first Indo-European tribes to settle in Europe.
From this tribe’s name had derived the name of the Roman province of Lusitania , and Lusitania remains the name of Portugal in Latin. The terms Spain and the Spains were not interchangeable. With the Decretos de Nueva Planta , Philip V started to organize the fusion of his kingdoms that until then were ruled as distinct and independent, but this unification process lacked a formal and juridic proclamation.
Today, the term Hispanic is typically applied to the varied populations of these places, including those with Spanish ancestry.
The islands were originally settled by ancient people sailing east from Asia and north from Polynesia. Later discoverers and settlers included the Spanish, Germans, and Japanese and evidence of their former presence is found throughout the islands. Following the trusteeship under U.

I hope the Lord above will pardon Me, that I may mercy find. Attend unto my true confession— A lesson it may be to you; Give not your mind too much to pleasure, Act upright — be just and true. For that alone caused me to murder, And brought me to this untimely end. Let not the world blame those two Females Who, fellow-servants were with me; For of the murder and the robbery, None whatever knew but me.
Charles Dickens attended this hanging, mining the scene for Barnaby Rudge. William Thackeray came too — he was becoming publicly engaged as a man troubled by capital punishment, and it was the first execution he had witnessed. Actually, he turned away at the decisive moment. At first, his statements are false, contradictory, lying. He has not repented then. His last declaration seems to be honest, as far as the relation of the crime goes.
The horrid gallows is perpetually before him; he is wild with dread and remorse. Clergymen are with him ceaselessly; religious tracts are forced into his hands: Read through that last paper of his.
