Respects – Art and Symbolism Part II

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 8/8/2014 9:55:33 AM

Earlier in the week we shared some amazing pictures of a truly remarkable World War One 100 Year Anniversary Tribute. Yesterday Kate Middleton and Prince William paid their respects. The symbolism magnifies.

Comments:
That is the article. Somehow I missed this. Here (via the link in the article) are photos of an extraordinary tributs at the Tour of London marking the 100th anniversary of WWI and the story of how they were created. 888,246 Ceramic Poppies surrounding the Tower of London. The full story and many more photos are linked at the end of the brief article.

When you hear numbers, they are just numbers.

When you see numbers laid out before you, they can become overwhelming. What a beautiful tribute forcing us to recognize the magnitude of the loss of life.

Southern Regional HS did this for American troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and the sight was breathtaking.

Beautiful pictures. Thanks for posting.

Naturally, WWI means nothing to Zippy.
Those that forget WWI and WWII will be surprised by WWIII.

The parents of a boy with a brain tumour have said they removed their son from a UK hospital because he had not been offered proton beam therapy. In a video posted on YouTube, Brett and Naghemeh King said they had "pleaded" with staff at Southampton General Hospital for their five-year-old son Ashya to be given it. The technology is currently only available in the UK to treat eye cancers, but patients with other forms of cancer can apply for NHS funding for therapy abroad. So what is proton beam therapy?

Hong Kong: Underlining the potential for escalating confrontation, Hong Kong pro-democracy groups have vowed to ensure the city enters an "era of civil disobedience" in protest against proposed voting reforms imposed by the Chinese government. Braving stop-start rain under a gleaming Hong Kong skyline, thousands of demonstrators flocked to a rally organised by pro-democracy group Occupy Central outside the offices of the Legislative Council on Sunday night, where they were urged to stage mass sit-ins to cripple the city´s financial district. It came just hours after Beijing said it would deny voters the right to publicly nominate candidates for the

Scientists can now see what cocaine

PBS News Hour, by Anna Christiansen    Original Article
Posted By: SoCalGal- 8/30/2014 5:30:38 PM     Post Reply
Researchers unveiled a breakthrough imaging technique Thursday that show what blood flow in the brain looks like on cocaine. For the first time, researchers have been able to prove “cocaine induced microischemia,” a precursor to stroke that arises when blood flow shuts down. The experiment was conducted on mice via cocaine injections. The results were published in the journal Biomedical Optics Express. The method means that we can finally see tiny vessels called capillaries, which form the brain’s circulation network. (Snip) We know that cocaine can cause “aneurysm-like bleeding and strokes,” but the exact mechanism that leads

When we first began digging in to the Mike Brown story something odd was immediately identifiable. The individual witness statements, when compared over time, were case studies in the evolution of self-contradiction. But why ? It’s generally a true statement that eye witnesses testimonials can often be unreliable; but the statements of the people hitting the New York media circuit were beyond unreliable – they were contradicting themselves from show to show, often within hours. A little research into the shooting aftermath and things begin to fall into place.The primary witnesses used to create what we’ll call ‘the media narrative’

Ukraine is mounting a push for NATO membership as it faces down Russia, a move that comes ahead of a major NATO summit and as the Ukrainian ambassador to Canada renews calls for armaments from the West. Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Friday said he’d move toward suspending the country’s “non-bloc” status, a first step toward pursuing North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership, ahead of the alliance’s summit in Wales next week.The push from Ukraine will force Western leaders – including Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who will attend the summit – to once again evaluate what role to play in

If you’re waiting for President Obama to pull a Walgreen (WAG) on Burger King (BKW), you’re probably one pickle short of a whopper. Because it ain’t happening. By now you’ve heard that Burger King has just scooped up Canadian coffee-and-doughnut giant Tim Hortons in a roughly $11 billion deal, and will move its headquarters there. BK’s CEO insists the deal won’t save much on taxes – the company presently pays an adjusted tax rate of about 27%, which is about the prevailing tax rate in Canada. Others dispute that math, since Canada provides many more tax incentives and loopholes that

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS. The U.S. continues to target Islamic State

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani
