The shadow of the Earth catches the refracted light from the sun, and the moon has a reddish, almost copper-color sheen cast upon it.

(GETTYSBURG, Pa.) - Gettysburg College Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology Kathryn Lord Dogs--they're loyal, loving, and always there to lend an ear when you need it most. But when it comes to understanding their vocalizations--let's just say it can get lost in translation.

Fire in the Sky

The scientists are still obsessed with gravity and heat generated by gravitational flexing.

(SAN DIEGO) - Fire in the Sky The obstinate rejection of my electromagnetic concept is apparently over but the continued stubborn adherence to old beliefs is hindering the explanation of many remaining mysteries.

For instance, in the Jan. 5, 2014 program “Fire in the Sky”, the narrator said: “Magnetism is nature’s most mysterious force. Only now are we beginning to understand how it shapes the cosmos. Mega-flares make magnetism visible. It shines a light on the incredible power of magnetic fields; fields that play a fundamental role in the universe...”

The Newest Depth of Depravity

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. - Margaret Mead

(OLDENBURG, Germany) - Comma There it goes, disappearing into extinction, that fine old mark of punctuation, the comma of direct address. Every time I read an email that starts "Hi William," I wince.

Slow Writers

I never saw a city boy yet who was worth a damn. - Ernest Hemingway

(DAYTONA BEACH) - old typewriter William Styron was a great novelist and there he has the advantage over me. But he wrote only four books, and there I have the advantage over him.

In a touch less than fourscore years and ten, I've written a guidebook to Inuit cuisine, a puff piece on Alaska seiners' purloining of the Prince Rupert salmon fishery, an apologia for the Gulf oil spill, two anthologies of G.I. pornography and a novel banned both in Boston and the Campfire Girls' reading list.
