A British woman who served with the Royal Air Force for the last two months of World War I was the last known veteran of the war when she died in her sleep Saturday night. Florence Green joined the RAF at the age of 17 and died just before her 111th birthday, which would have been Feb. 19. She had been a mess steward with the air force, the BBC reported, serving in two U.K. air bases after she joined up on Sept. 13 1918. The Allies signed the armistice with Germany on Nov. 11, 1918. Green follows Claude Choules, a Royal Navy sailor who was the last WWI combatant before he died in May 2011, and Frank Buckles, the last American veteran of the war, who died in February 2011. So long, Florence Green, we hardly knew ye. [link | link]
Okay, so we've got a game challenge today and we're going to make a littl emusic while we're doing it. A Symphony, in fact. Move the arrows around to filter the colored sand through the appropriate circles to create musical notes. The first few levels are sort of easy mindless ones, to familiarize you with the mechanice of the game, about 6th movement or so, things start to get interesting. I've made it to Movement 2, Stage 9.
During Media Week at Lucas Oil Stadium, the lovely host of Extra, Maria Menounos, explained to Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski a Super Bowl bet she had agreed to with her correspondent, A.J. Calloway. According to Maria, the bet called for her to do Monday's show in a Giants bikini if they beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. And as we all know, Tom Brady choked. Again. And so making good on her bet, here is Maria Menounos in a Giants bikini, camel toe and all. In related news, boy, Gisele Bundchen sure has put on a little weight, amirite?
Déjà vu (literally "already seen") is the experience of feeling sure that one has already witnessed or experienced a current situation, even though the exact circumstances of the prior encounter are uncertain and were perhaps imagined. The term was coined by a French psychic researcher, Émile Boirac (1851–1917) in his book L'Avenir des sciences psychiques, which expanded upon an essay he wrote while an undergraduate. The experience of déjà vu is usually accompanied by a compelling sense of familiarity, and also a sense of eeriness, strangeness, weirdness, or what Sigmund Freud calls the uncanny. The previous experience is most frequently attributed to a dream, although in some cases there is a firm sense that the experience has genuinely happened in the past.
Pine trees are among the most commercially important of tree species, valued for their timber and wood pulp throughout the world. In temperate and tropical regions, they are fast-growing softwoods that will grow in relatively dense stands, their acidic decaying needles inhibiting the sprouting of competing hardwoods. Commercial pines are grown in plantations for timber that is denser, more resinous, and therefore more durable than spruce. Knotty pine wood is widely used in high-value carpentry items such as furniture, window frames, panelling, floors and roofing, and the resin of some species is an important source of turpentine.
Hey Ernie, Red Tails seems like it's going to be all special effects and not much story line, typical of movies now. Not that I don't like shit blowing up, I do. There was a movie in 1995 called The Tuskegee Airmen also on Netflix. It didn't get much attention PBS made for TV movie, but well worth the time. Cuba Gooding Jr. is in both movies, this time a Major. Here is the youtube trailer. I read here that the story was a tuff sell to hollywood, and that George Lucas spent more than two decades and $58 million of his own cash to make this file with an all black cast. I'm not sure how much the PBS one cost and from what I remember there was, at less three white peeps in the 1995 one, but hell I know times are tuff in Hollywood and I'm sure Lucas is cash strapped now, but damn have we all become giant pussies it was hard to sell this great story because the cast needed to be black? - Shawn

Cells of the immune system protect the body against pathogens. If cells in our bodies are infected by viruses, or become cancerous, then killer cells of the immune system identify and destroy the affected cells. Cytotoxic T cells are very precise and efficient killers. They are able to destroy infected or cancerous cells, without destroying healthy cells surrounding them. By understanding how this works, we can develop ways to control killer cells. This will allow us to find ways to improve cancer therapies, and ameliorate autoimmune diseases caused when killer cells run amok and attack healthy cells in our bodies. With that in mind, Samuel William "Bill" Hinzman was an American actor and film director. Hinzman's first role was the cemetery zombie in the horror film Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Hinzman died on Sunday, February 5, 2012 from cancer.
Seaweed is a loose colloquial term encompassing macroscopic, multicellular, benthic marine algae. The term includes some members of the red, brown and green algae. Two specific environmental requirements dominate seaweed ecology. These are the presence of seawater (or at least brackish water) and the presence of light sufficient to drive photosynthesis. Another common requirement is a firm attachment point. As a result, seaweeds most commonly inhabit the littoral zone and within that zone more frequently on rocky shores than on sand or shingle. Seaweeds occupy a wide range of ecological niches. The highest elevation is only wetted by the tops of sea spray, the lowest is several meters deep. In some areas, littoral seaweeds can extend several miles out to sea. The limiting factor in such cases is sunlight availability.
Good ol' supervillains. They're the eternal underdogs; constantly having to put up with pesky heroes who come bounding into their underground/volcanic/moonbase lair – all white teeth and goody two-shoes – messing up a perfectly good plan for world domination just because some liberal somewhere said: “Ummm killing millions of people is, like, bad, OK?” Worst of all, the heroes always win. Despite the lack of job satisfaction, there is no shortage of supervillains out there in the world of comic book movie adaptations, and in a genre where even the superheroes wear look-at-me spandex, it's pretty hard to make yourself stand out from the crowd. But there is one particular category of villainy that is rather notable (for the male fans at least): that of the supervillain babe. She's the bad girl who would kick your puny human ass while wearing less clothes than a naturist in July. She's the devil with an angel's face. She's the – well you get the idea… What follows is a collection of criminal hotness that could seriously singe your man-bits.
The Compact Disc is an optical disc used to store digital data. It was originally developed to store and playback sound recordings exclusively, but later expanded to encompass storage of data (CD-ROM). Audio CDs and audio CD players have been commercially available since October 1982. From a technical standpoint, a CD is made from 1.2 millimetres (0.047 in) thick, polycarbonate plastic and weighs 15–20 grams. From the center outward, components are: the center spindle hole (15 mm), the first-transition area (clamping ring), the clamping area (stacking ring), the second-transition area (mirror band), the program (data) area, and the rim. The inner program area occupies a radius from 25 to 58 mm.
I'm Ian Kinsler. I'm Lead Mechanic on line RON in Houston. Tonight we're gonna watch how Houston performs C-check washes. We'll try to get over here as soon as possible because these planes fly at 6 a.m. or 6:30. So, any kind of delay is gonna cause trouble, so we try to get over there as soon as possible and let the Appearance Techs do their thing. They wash a plane pretty much like a car -- every square inch that's not covered up they'll wash it and make it look like a brand new airplane. To wash a plane, the whole time involved I'd say maybe five hours. They build up a lot of crud and dirt, that's the dirtiest part of the airplane—the landing gear—hydraulic fluid runback, that's where they really want to scrub, the underside. As you can see, the rest of the airplane is pretty clean, but the belly is the dirtiest part. That green slimy stuff is the soap they use. It will get all the grimy stuff off. It does its job -- it's pretty strong.
I don't know if you've seen this, but it may give you a moment of amusement. I hope you're doing well. TTFNAndrew
A poncho is an outer garment designed to keep the body warm or, if made from a watertight material, to keep dry during rain. Ponchos have been used by the Native American peoples of the Andes since pre-Hispanic times and are nowadays considered typical South American garments. The poncho is essentially a single large sheet of fabric with an opening in the center for the head with a piece of fabric that covers the head. Rainproof ponchos normally are fitted with fasteners to close the sides once the poncho is draped over the body, with openings provided for the arms; many have hoods attached to ward off wind and rain.
Mark Zable started with "unhealthy food tastes good" they same way Einstein started with "I don't think space is flat," chasing the thought through an insane level of work to a reality-redefining result: deep-fried beer. This is less a fried snack than a personal vendetta against the organ transplant industry. It took Zable three years to work out the recipe because his experimentally fried protosnacks kept exploding. Returning to the same place full of explosions three years running for a ridiculous reason technically means he's an action hero.
